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.

Flashback Friday - Greta's First Title


 August 2013 Greta and I attended 
a 3 day obedience/rally trial
We were quite ambitious and entered both
Beginner Novice Obedience and Rally Novice
all three days. 



I was so proud of her -
the first day we qualified in both classes
and both classes again the second day!



the third day she did not want to do 
her sit stay in the obedience ring 
and I thought that 
maybe I had asked too much of her

She was very young after all, only 1 1/2 yrs old 
and this was only her second experience at a trial


 But that afternoon in the Rally Novice ring 



she earned her best score of all three days 
and finished her Rally Novice Title!



What a weekend! What a girl!

Now I have to tell you
 of a sweet surprise I got from Google

Have you ever googled your name 
to see what might come up?

Well I googled "Greta Pug Munchskin"


And up popped a link
 to the
 Pug Dog Club of America's 
2013 Rally Ratings

OMD!
look who was listed #10! 




Greta went on to finish her
 Beginner Novice Obedience Title in June of this year 
and in August she earned two qualifying scores
 towards her Pre-Novice Title


I miss you baby
so very much

Love you
 Mom

It's Chewy Time!


Last week our Chewy box arrived 
with some new treats for us to try



This month we picked 
Grandma Lucy's Organic Oven Baked Treats Pumpkin

they are all natural - nothing artificial



Perfect for a fall treat
Open it up Mom! 



They smell like pumpkin cookies!




And they look like little teddy bears


Hey Hey! We both want that little bear! 


Grandma Lucy's Oven Baked Pumpkin Treats 
passed the pug taste test - we thought they were yummy
They are a little bigger than we expected but are easy to break in pieces and easy for us to crunch up

One concern is the amount of sugar
three of the ingredients are
Dehydrated Cane Juice, Organic Brown Sugar and Organic Cane Juice Syrup

But like any treat, we get them in moderation

Overall they were a big hit with us

Disclaimer: We were not compensated for this review, Chewy.com sent this bag of treats
to us in exchange for an honest review

Angel Greta's Button Giveaway

Hi Friends - Angel Greta here!

Last year Mom & I had a special button giveaway for
 Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It was a great success and the plan
 was for us to do it again this year. 

 I let Mom know that I am still right here 
- in her heart - 

and we would still do this together

 You see -  my Mom is celebrating 3 yrs as a Breast Cancer Survivor.
 I came into Mom's life just a few months after she completed radiation treatments
 and I was an important part of her overall recovery. 

so once again we want to share with you the story of .....


How I Became Mom's "Pink" Dog
by Angel Greta
Mom has NEVER liked the color PINK
her favorite colors are green and purple
but...

 you may have noticed that I
wear a lot of PINK

 Two Three years ago something happened

 

After having her yearly check up
Mom was told she needed a biopsy


Two days before the start of
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Mom was told she had breast cancer
Then not only did she not like PINK
she HATED PINK
Trying to come to terms with the Big C diagnoses
and PINK was in her face everywhere she went.
Surgery was scheduled and followed soon after
 by 6 weeks of radiation treatments



It was then that Mom began to realize
just how lucky she was
 She does her wellness check ups every year
 so her cancer was caught early

 She has a family that loves her and needs her
and she will be here for them
for a long time to come


  Mom realized that during
 Breast Cancer Awareness Month
she can let people know that
early detection saves lives 

so she decided
 to embrace the color "PINK"

 and that
 is how I became Mom's "Pink" dog.


Dear Furiends!

 Please make sure your loved ones

educate themselves about the risks of breast cancer 
and the importance of mammograms if they are over 40,
earlier if there is a history of breast cancer in the family.
Early detection can make such a difference!
 
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
we are once again having a little giveaway!

From the Café Press Shop of
we have
 Pug w/pink ribbon mini buttons  
(1” diameter) to send out to our friends


They look great on a blouse, lapel,
 or pinned on a hat (that’s where Mom’s human son wore his).
Maybe you want to show support for someone close to you
 that is battling this disease, or honor a loved one lost
or just want to help spread awareness. 
Maybe your peep is a survivor like our MOM.
  We need our peeps to take care of themselves
so they can take care of us!
Those of you that received a button last year, 
we hope you are wearing it proudly!

If you would like a button
just send us an email with your snail mail addy to
pugranch2 AT msn DOT com

UPDATE! 10/09/2014
ALL OF THIS YEARS BUTTONS HAVE BEEN CLAIMED
THANK YOU EVERYONE!



love
Angel Greta & Mom
