Flashback Friday - remembering

the Original PugRanch Kids

Waiting at the Bridge

MaoYen, Pugsley, CharShu, McKenzie
MaoYen was my pug when I met my husband.
He was not much for little dogs but she quickly won him over
and she became more his dog than mine.
It is hard to believe it's been almost 10 yrs since she went to the bridge.
CharShu was MaoYen's son.
He had fluid in his lungs when he was born
and the vet did not know if he would make it.
I sat up with him all night helping him nurse.
He was ours from the day he was born until
he left us 3 yrs ago at the age of 17.
McKenzie was 5 months old when she joined the family.
Her original owner found she was allergic
 and asked if we could help find her a new home.
So we took her in and of course she stayed.
She was my first pug to earn an obedience title.
Pugsley came from an ad in the newspaper.
He was 3 years old and was spending most of  his time in the basement or outside.
Thankfully his owners knew that he needed a better home.
 We will be together again!
