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.

This Post is for the Birds!

There are farm fields around where we live and often there are large hawks hunting for mice

One day we saw one on the neighbors power pole

Can you see him sitting on top?

Mom used the zoom on her camera to get closer

What a handsome fellow

OOHHH! He is looking right at us!

He let out a loud screech

Then took flight!

Angel Greta's 3rd Annual Button Giveaway

Hi Friends - Angel Greta here!

In 2013 Mom & I had a special button giveaway for
 Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It was such a great success we wanted to do it again

My unexpected departure for the Rainbow Bridge did not stop us from doing it  in 2014 because I let Mom know that I am always here 
- in her heart - 
and we will still do this together

So here we are again in 2015 
and my Mom is celebrating 4 yrs as a Breast Cancer Survivor.

 I came into Mom's life just a few months 
after she completed her 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

 you may have noticed that I
wore a lot of PINK

 Two Three  Four 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
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, my friends
 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
 send us an email with your snail mail addy to
pugranch2 AT msn DOT com
We will send the buttons anywhere!

This year we have 20 buttons
when they're gone they're gone!

  **Update** as of 10/09 am
18 buttons have been claimed!

Heading to the Sadie Hawkins Dance!

We are so excited for the 
Sadie Hawkins Dance 

Bailey & I got on the road first thing this morning
Hazel had other plans

All the way there all Bailey could talk about

Was spending time with Dory

I asked him if I could borrow the car
so me & Arty could go out for Ice Cream

Of course I had Arty drive cause I am not old enough!

Don't worry Mom, we won't sit too close!

Hazel here friends!
I know just how much Oreo loves adventure

So I hopped in a hot air balloon to go pick him up

Oreo was waiting on the back porch

Hold on - off we go!

Once we got way up in the air
just look who we found

Addi & Bertie in a tank balloon!!!!

Hey! let's race to Dory's 

Who's gonna get there first?

We're almost there!
