It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them,
and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart.
If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog,
and I will become as generous and loving as they are.

Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails

It's time again for

Hosted by Murphy & Stanley

When you left me last month

I was disappointed 
at finding vinyl siding in the box

Well what I am going to tell you now is a
re-enactment of what happened next

It is a true story

Mom & Dad had siding left over after
putting it around the front door

They decided to put the rest on part of the garage
and that part is inside our yard

This is Dad's box of screws

Those two red thingies are ear plugs

Mom & Dad were busy putting the siding on 
when Mom noticed that I was
 chewing on something

She looked down and saw

Only ONE Ear Plug!

She gave me that
and GULP!


I can't believe I ate . . . 

an ear plug!

 and Mom couldn't believe it took
four days for it to pass

Butt all's well that ends well

And you will forgive me for not 
re-enacting that part of the story

Our First Chewy Review!

We are really excited to do our very first review for

We have been customers of ever since I developed allergies 
and Mom was looking for limited ingredient dog food. 
Chewy had the best price around and with the free shipping 
it was an easy decision to become a customer
Since then we have purchased other supplies, most recently an exercise pen.
 Again THE best price and free shipping (over $49) - can't beat it. 
On the occasion we called customer service with a problem 
they have been very helpful and issues were resolved quickly.

For our very first review we chose
Buffalo & Blueberry treats

We thought they sounded yummy 
and Mom liked that they had just a few ingredients

Let's read the box
Pecks are made with the finest artisan ingredients 
including grass-fed buffalo and organic virgin coconut oil. 
They're crafted into tiny bite-size morsels so they're ideal for training. 
They're perfect for tiny mouths - but big dogs love them too!

Ingredients - Barley Flour, buffalo, molasses, water, eggs, 
organic coconut oil and blueberries

That's it!

Come on - lets get this thing open 
and check those little morsels out!

Just like they said - bite size

mmmmmm - they smell good!

Hazel approves!

Bailey does too!

We don't do hard crunchy, but these have a 
light crunch - just right for us pugs.
They are quite tasty and 
one other thing that Mom likes about them
 only 0.6 calories per treat!
That means we can have more than one
at a time - right Mom?

We give The Honest Kitchen Pecks
buffalo & blueberry treats
12 paws up!!!

Thank you Chewy 
for letting us try these out!

Remembering Char Shu

We can't believe 
it has been five years since we said goodbye

Char Shu
6/12/1992 - 8/12/2009

Char Shu was the son of our own MaoYen
After a C-section 
we were told one of the pups had fluid in his lungs 
and might not make it

Mom sat up all night and helped him nurse
by morning he was doing well

and Mom had already decided

 that he would stay with them forever

When Char Shu was young,  
mom took him to some obedience trials
Never got a qualifying score back then
but he entertained the crowd with
his slow crawl toward mom 
when he was supposed to be on a down stay

Two more pugs joined the family

The original PugRanch Kids
McKenzie, Mao Yen, Pugsley and Char Shu

After taking some years off
Mom and Char Shu returned to the Obedience Ring

At the age of 10 
he earned his Companion Dog Title 
in three shows 

The following year at 11 yrs old

He was the High Scoring Dog at a Fun Match!

He retired from shows 

after winning second place in a Veterans Class
 at the age of 12

But his most favorite thing 
was to be close to those he loved

He loved Dad but in his last few years
it was Mom he came to depend on as
his eyesight and hearing left him
Once Mom went out of town for a few days
and Dad got very little sleep
 as Char Shu barked and cried for Mom

He was so gentle, 
the grandkids loved him

he had gone totally white in the face but was still spry 
celebrating his 16th birthday with friends
(that's Hazel with her back to you)

The little pug puppy 
who was not supposed to make it
lived 2 months past his 17th birthday

Our sweet, sweet boy
We miss you everyday
