Mommy's New Love

Pearl here!

Sorry that we haven't posted in awhile. Mommy needs to help us with the 'puter but she's been super duper busy and really just having fun in the sun. Harumph.

Below are pictures of what was keeping her busy on this past weekend. They had an "air show" at the airport right next to our house. We think it should have been called a "noise show". The planes zooping over our house were so loud but Mommy loved it. She says she doesn't understand why she likes fighter jets so much because normally she's like us and doesn't like much noise. But all weekend she's like "Top Gun, yeah!"- whatever that means.

Anyhow, here's one of the really noisy planes. It's called an F15. It's getting ready to bother everyone:

And here it is flying, making a nuisance of itself (Mommy thinks it's a beautiful thing. We think she's a little nutty):

We're actually getting ready to go away AGAIN to visit some friends at their cottage in Canada today but we wanted to tell our BIG NEWS!!!! Mommy finally bought a super duper fancy shmancy camera!!!! At first we weren't sure about it. It's sure is a lot bigger than our old camera but then we saw how wonderful we look in the pictures and now we love it too.

Here I am on our friends' deck:

And here's baby Daisy not looking quite as cute as me but pretty close:

We hope everyone is doing well. Mommy promises to be a better blogging friend when holidays are over!

Pug love from,

Fridge Meme & Award

Rachel, Winston & Clementine from Ladypug Mugs tagged us for a meme AND nominated us with an award. Whoo-hoo! Thanks so much, guys!

First we'll do the fridge meme. Then we'll show off our fancy new award.

Rules for the meme:
- Show us a photo of the front of your Fridge
- Tell us about at least one thing on it and one thing you keep inside of it
- Tag your friends and remember to stay COOL! And no fair cleaning it up first!!

Here's the front of her in all her glory! Actually, it's not too busy today. I used to have a lot more magnets but I got rid of a bunch when we moved 2 years ago. Here some highlights of what you see:

1) A professional picture of Pearl taken a couple of years ago for a Humane Society fundraiser and contest. She didn't win cutest pet but she should have!
2) The Pug Notes post card that came with my t-shirt and print. To me the card was a bonus goody.
3) A pug magnet Pearl won at the Dallas Fort Worth Pugoween the 2nd year we went (she was voted cutest pug in a costume and she wore the lobster costume I made for her)
4) A baby announcement from my brother in law
5) A notice about Clinique buy 2 get one 3 sale (I need to check if it's expired)
6) The greatest invention in the known world - my dry erase board. (Great Big Sea is written on it because they are coming to town and I'm going to see about getting tickets)
7) 3 funny, funky magnets my friend Rachel brought me back from Canada
8) House Mouse grocery listers

A view of the side and some things found on it:
1) A Dogbert magnet. The bubble reads, "Dance like it hurts. Love like you need money. Work like people are watching".
2) Pearl's Cutest Dog of the Month award from our friends Mary & Josie
3) A Farscape magnet featuring the evil Scorpy (we've been watching season one lately. It's soooo good)

And now for what's inside...too much stuff! We went grocery shopping yesterday after a week away so the thing is packed mostly with vegies and a big package of chicken breasts.

And now...the award!

The rules for accepting the award are as follows:
1. Add the logo of the award to my site
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Add links to those blogs on your site
5. Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs

I nominate:
Jemima Jones Beck
Pug Possessed
MeiMei & Miko
Bella & Perogi
Owned by Pugs
Roxy & Lucky

Have fun!

We're baaccckkk...

Pearl here! Sorry we haven't commented on our friends' blogs or posted in over a week but we were away in Maine. It was pretty fun considering it wasn't home. We have pictures and stuff to talk about but Mommy needs to get the pictures from the camera first.

So today we're going to post our last entries to Sophie's contest which had been over at her blog Pug & Bugg (contest is over now - we had lots of fun!). There's a site where you can make your own LOL Dogs. Mommy could get addicted to it. Here's our piccies - that's me in the tub and Daisy being a goofie guts.

Happy Everything!

Pearl here! We were supposed to post these pictures a few days ago on Canada Day but Mommy has been kind of disorganized so we're posting tonight. We realize tomorrow is July 4th so we just say Happy Summer to all our American and Canadian friends.

Now onto the really important stuff - pictures of me. And my sister and our friend Rosie. We had a Canada Day bbq with Rosie and her mommy Rachel on Tuesday. Mommy had some decorations in the basement that Daddy's mommy had kindly given her years ago. She was glad to pull everything out. It looked quite festive! Mommy only managed one picture with decorations AND a puggie. Here's Rosie sniffing our maple leafs:

This is me and my little sister hoping for some crumbs:

Here, Rosie is totally hogging the spotlight but I gotta admit she looks pretty cute:

And of course no day is complete without Daisy going beserk and attacking me. As you can see, my fighting skills gave me the upper paw:

Rachel brought Daddy lots of Canadian chocolate (Mommy can't eat sugar) and he didn't share a single piece with us! Harumph. Maybe next year.

As for tomorrow, we hope no one lights a single firework because it scares the poop out of us.

Have a happy weekend everyone!
