About The PugRanch Kids:
1. Bailey is the barker of the family. Barks at the TV, at the neighbors, at the school bus when it goes up the road, sometimes at the water softener when it runs at night.

2. Hazel loves to eat dandelions. She will scour the yard and pop the tops off of them. She also loves cherry tomatoes, and just about anything Dad tries to grow in the garden. We have to keep her out of it or she would strip everything clean.

3. Greta has learned the joy of eating the yard vegetation from Hazel.

4. All three pugs know that if Mom comes home and changes into her tennis shoes, someone is getting to go to training class.

5. All three pugs sleep with us at night. Lately it has been so cold that all three are under the covers with us.

About Mom Linda:
1. Mom grew up in Redwood City, CA and moved to Idaho when she was 18 yrs old

2. When Mom was in the 6th grade, she and her partner won 5th place in a State Ballroom Dance competition.

3. Mom has worked for the same employer for 40 yrs. She works in the accounting dept. at a potato processing plant. They make french fries and one of their biggest customers is McDonalds.

4. Mom loves to read. She really enjoyed the Harry Potter series, Twilight was fun, and has read almost every Stephen King book and also likes Dean Koontz. Her most recent favorite books are Merles Door, Lessons from a Free Thinking Dog, and A Dogs Purpose.
