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.

More Thank You's

So many friends have been so thoughtful
since Greta left us for the Bridge
letting us know they are thinking of us

a little package came from our dear friends

 a lovely doxie card


 and a pug leash for Mom's keys!
Thank you for thinking of us
 and giving mom a smile

We were fortunate to have had one of our friends 
take more than 200 photos of Greta and Mom
 at the obedience trial they attended in Aug

That friend is also a graphic artist


look at this beautiful card she created



It was signed by many of our 
training friends 

We still need to get caught up
on some awards we have gotten

next time!

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
