Holiday Traditions at the PugRanch

Today we want to share with you 
some our favorite Holiday Traditions

The first decoration that gets set out is

our Pug Christmas Train!

Every Christmas Eve we have a big buffet
Most of the adult kids and grandkids come over 

They feast on things like crab legs

Smoked ribs

Christmas Ham

And homemade goodies!

Mom and Dad provide most of the meats 
and everybody brings food to share.

Sometimes they play games, one year they sang karaoke
It is a fun time with family

We hope all of our friends have
a Very Wonderful Holiday Season!

we have a couple of reminders

Honest Kitchen Beef Bone Broth

Great for both dogs and cats, it can be served as a satisfying drink between meals, poured on kibble for a little extra moisture or used to hydrate an Honest Kitchen meal, our bone broth is incredibly versatile. You might find it tempts a picky pet, or perks up one who’s been a bit down in the appetite department, too.

Ingredients: Beef Bone Broth, Parsley, Pumpkin, Turmeric Extract. 

mmmm smells so good I could almost taste it!

Even the lid smells yummy, don't you agree Hazel?

Key Benefits

  • 95% beef bone broth plus nourishing parsley, pumpkin and turmeric extract
  • Can be used as a treat or poured on kibble for a little extra moisture
  • Makes about 10 cups of delicious broth
  • No corn, wheat, soy or GMO ingredients
  • Great for both dogs and cats

It comes in powdered form

Mix with hot water to make a broth

My pug nose was breathing in 
that warm and inviting aroma

A pawfect way to warm us up in the cold snowy weather
Can we have some now Mom??

We have been having it on our kibble - YUM!

Thank you Chewy for letting us try 
Honest Kitchen Beef Bone Broth

Weekend Snow!

Saturday it snowed most of the day

I spent the afternoon watching Dad plow snow 
from the comfort of my window perch

Sunday morning Hazel decided it was quicker 
to pee in the snow on the deck

Do you see me peeking from behind the house?

Just waiting for my turn!

Later in the day we ventured out to the yard 
where mom had shoveled for us

How long until spring??

Frosty Flower Friday

Can you believe it is almost Christmas
and the last Flower Friday of this year

We really wanted to join Miss Rosy 
but it is too cold here for flowers

So we thought we would share our frosty trees

The fog we have had all week has decorated the trees
to look like a winter wonderland!

We want to thank you friends
 for your support for our family
and prayers for our grandma

We love you all

Wednesday with Words

 Sorry we have been kinda MIA lately

we have some family stuff going on. 

Our grandma (Dad's mom) is in very poor health and is getting hospice care at home. Dad is spending a lot of time there. In the midst of that Mom's older brother passed away last week in California. Mom won't be traveling for the service as she doesn't want to leave Dad. 

In addition Mom's new computer had a fit with the big Windows update, requiring not one but two total resets to get all things up and running  again.

We are trying to keep up with everybody 
Hazel & I are really looking forward to the Holiday fun!

Share your favorite holiday traditions on 
Friday December 22

Then be sure to join Arty and me for

get your pictures in to Arty's assistant at

Monday Movie

A short Monday video for you today

Doing tricks for my Novice Trick Title

We had high winds yesterday afternoon 
which blew in a snow storm in the evening

All mom could think was 
No worries about driving to work on bad roads anymore!

Just the challenge of 
getting two little pugs to potty
in 3 inches of snow BOL!

Is There Snow at the Rainbow Bridge?

 Friday morning we got down to 16 degrees

Saturday morning we woke up to snow on the ground

Most of it was gone by later in the day 
but more snow is supposed to be on its way tomorrow

With the arrival of winter weather
 today we are thinking of our old man
 on what would have been his 15th birthday

Last winter was so very hard for him
especially when the temps were in the sub zero range
and we had record snowfall
We knew in our hearts it would be his last with us

Just the other day I was seeing who was where
Hazel was in her bed in the study, 
Mabel on her back of the couch "perch".
Then  - "now where's Bailey?" 
that brought tears

My dear Bailey Man,
If there is snow at the Rainbow Bridge
I know your once again young body
 will be oblivious to the cold as you run and play
and that warms my heart

Miss you
