Mabel to the Rescue!

We got lots of snow over the Christmas weekend. 
It started out with sleet on Christmas Eve day
 and then turned to snow. 

It snowed 15 inches before it was all done! 

Snow and ice everywhere


That brings me to today's story  - 
it is a true story as told to Mom by Dad

 On Tuesday Dad got home from work
 and we all went out like good pugs to do our business. When we came back in, Dad went in the other room to change his shoes.

 Suddenly there I was barking at Dad like a crazy pug.

 BARK! Come on DAD! BARK! BARK!

Barking reinactment

Dad followed me through the kitchen and to the back door while I BARKED and BARKED, 
HURRY DAD!! HURRY!!
now my brother Bailey has very bad hips and arthritis
 and his back legs aren't very strong anymore  



 Well Bailey had decided to go back outside

When he went out the doggy door 
he slipped on some ice and could not get back up.

 Dad was so proud of me for barking the alarm
  Mom cried and gave me a big hug 
when Dad told her about it



I love my brother and I would never want anything to happen to him!



Dad put a rug outside the door so it won't happen again.
(the doggie door is only available to us when Mom & Dad are home)



Now Blogville Citizens!
 we have an impawtent day coming up!
