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.


Barking reinactment

Dad followed me through the kitchen and to the back door while I BARKED and BARKED, 
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!

Snow & Frigid Cold!

Winter is here!

We had a bad snow storm on Friday

It snowed and the wind blowed all day and the temperatures dropped to single digits, below zero at night!

After plowing the driveway, Dad used the snowblower to give us some area to potty

Do you see the pheasant?? 
They like to live in the willow bushes below our driveway

We prefer to stay inside where it is warm

Mr Bailey is really happy that Dory sent him this soft and cozy blanket for his birthday.
It keeps him toasty at night

PugRanch Holiday Traditions

Well the weather outside is frightful
but my warm bed is so delightful

Yes Friends! 
It's Mr Bailey, hanging out in my favorite bed 
in my favorite part of the house
The Kitchen

The PugRanch kitchen plays a very important role
 in our Holiday traditions

Every year Mom and two of the granddaughters
 have a baking day in December

They really outdid themselves in 2009

pumpkin cookies, peanut butter balls and bars, 
russian teacakes, mini carrot cakes and magic cookie bars

By the time they were done there was also 
two pumpkin rolls and some mints!

Every year they pick different things to bake
OMD! the smells of all the goodies baking

When the house gets decorated 
One of the first things to come out 

 is the Pug Christmas Train!

Then the BIG pawty is on Christmas Eve

The family comes over for a scrumptious buffet

Years ago when mom was a single mom with two kids and far away from any family, they always got a Hickory Farms box from the grandparents. Every Christmas Eve mom would fix some simple snacks to go along with the summer sausage and cheese. They would eat their snacks and sing Christmas carols. 

After Mom and Dad got together the tradition continued
and as the years have gone by the Christmas Eve "snacks" has turned into quite the feast

Now everyone looks forward to the crab legs

sometimes there is smoked ribs

And we always have to have some Christmas ham

everyone brings some good food to share

And dessert is always goodies from the baking day!

By the way - did you notice my Christmas tie??
It was one of my birthday gifts from my special gal Dory
I will have to show you what else she sent me another time

Hope you are enjoying our
25 days of Holiday Fun!

November Chewy Review #2

I know it is December 
but we got behind with our Chewy Review!

let me tell you friends - I Love to Chew!
I have a variety of chews  - some for everyday chewing 
and some more edible chews for more special occasions - like keeping me occupied while riding in the car. 

When Mom saw these 
Rachael Ray Nutrish Soup Bones 
that are made with real turkey and wholesome rice, 
she knew I would like to try them out!

  • This long-lasting chew is made with real turkey and has all the deliciousness of a wholesome soup bone with none of the splintering or mess
  • There’s even a tender meaty center inside made without meaty by-products or artificial flavors
  • Treats are perfect for small, medium or large dogs so they are perfect for multiple-pup households
  • Highly digestible so more nutrition goes to work inside your dog

There is a mini size but Mom got the regular size hoping it would be just like it said - a long lasting chew

Come on Mom!  Enough talk! I want to try it!

nom nom nom nom nom

I thought it was very yummy
but Mom quickly realized that it was not going to be
what she would call a long lasting chew. 

So we have mixed reviews 
I really liked it and would have ate the whole thing if Mom had let me. From the name and description, Mom was expecting it to be more of a chewing challenge. She was hoping it would be something she could give me to keep me occupied in the car for a while.

 thanks Chewy for sending us these 
Rachael Ray Nutrish Soup Bones to try
