Nature Friday and Christmas Gifts!

Today we are joining in Nature Friday 
showing off our Christmas gifts from our fellas!

It has been a snowy few days

It snowed all day Christmas. 
 It was not windy so it was pretty to see it steadily falling

We had a break on Wednesday
Then yesterday it once again snowed lightly all day

Even the snowman says

Enough is enough! 

Hazel & I had a wonderful Christmas
Our special fellas sent us some pawsome gifts

Oreo sent Hazel some fun toys and a bag of treats
She especially loves the super soft blankie
Thank you so much Oreo!!! 

I was really excited for Dad to open my present from Arty

I see something purple inside!!!
Arty knows purple is my color


I gave him a proper welcome to the PugRanch

Santa brought me a camping bandana.

This bandana is very special.

Arty got one too and we are going to wear them 
when we see each other in the furs 
at the MINI-BAR at Bryce canyon in May! 

Thank you Arty!!
I love my pressies!

#ChewyInfluencer Tug&Fetch No Squeak Tri-Flyer

This month we are going tell you about a fun toy that our friends at Chewy sent to us for review

All Kind Tug & Fetch No Squeak Tri-Flyer Dog Toy

Key Benefits
Squeaker-less three-point flyer is perfect for playing fetch and tug, indoors or outdoors.

Designed for squeak-less play from the yard to the park, and is easy to grab and carry by most dogs.

Aerodynamic shape is designed to go farther when thrown, so it’s a great way to add in daily exercise to help keep dogs active and healthy.

Made of durable rubber, nylon and polyester, with reinforced Oxford piping for added durability.

Available in different sizes so you can find the one that’s perfect for your dog.

Since I am a small dog we chose the small size

Some impawtent information to know
Created especially for paw-some games of fetch and tug, this toy is not designed to be a chew toy. Not recommended for aggressive chewers or destroyers. Every dog plays differently and, since not all toys are created equal, it’s always best to keep a close watch on your pup in case things get ruff. Supervised play will help toys last longer and most importantly keep your pal safe. No dog toy is truly indestructible, so always remove the toy from playtime if pieces begin to break off.

I'm not supposed to chew on it?
Well then let's take it outside and test it out!

Don't be scared at the beginning, 
the big shadow monster is just my Dad BOL! 
This toy was lot's of fun! 
Mom took it easy throwing it,
 she did not want it to fly over the fence. 
I love to run and chase it. 
Sometimes I have a hard time picking it up 
but Mom says that is just because of my flat pug nose!

This fetch toy is very sturdy and should hold up to lots of play time. It is also easy to wash off if it gets dirty. 
I give it 4 paws up

Thank you

Nature Friday

Our weather continues to be cold 

so our snow is sticking around

On this Nature Friday with

We thought we would show you
 a few of the interesting things
 created by the snow and cold

The wind created this snow overhang.
Be careful !
It may go at anytime

A little sun melted the snow just enough
 that it started to pull away from the deck post
 and then froze again in this position

Now for our most interesting discovery

Do you see the piece of ice?
It looks like it is laying on the deck

Nope! We have an icicle sticking up! 

Nature sure does some crazy things!

WW Pics on Thursday

Mom forgot to post our pictures yesterday
 for Wordless Wednesday

We wanted you to see our fireplace mantel

Mom found this fella at Hobby Lobby
He reminded her of Angel Bailey

We love these pug ornaments too

Hazel update from Mom
We took Hazel back in to the dogtor last Friday. After cutting her lasix dose in half, I felt she was going backwards and the dogtor agreed. Hazel got an injection and we went back to 2 pills a day. By Tuesday there was not much improvement in her wheezing so I talked to the dogtor again. She is now getting 3 lasix pills a day and we increased her trachea medicine also.  We are pleased to report that she is doing better and behaving like her happy self!

Monday Memories

After a weekend of snow we have had a cold spell 
with night time temps in the single digits.  
The other evening I was taking my dear sweet time 
finding a spot to go pee when Mom said to me

"Mabel! you've got your Greta on!"

Then she smiled as a memory filled her thoughts

It was January 2013. 
After two days of snow 
the temperatures turned bitterly cold, 
minus double digits at night and single digits during the day

Bailey & Hazel were pretty good about getting their business done quickly and getting back in the house.

But not Greta, 
She would have to go back and forth about 87 times 
before she would be ready to do anything. Then her feet would get too cold before she could get anything done

So we went shopping and got Greta some boots!!

Here she is testing out her new boots
If you listen you can hear the snow squeaking with the cold

In typical Greta style
she scaled the snow mountain to pee!

Oh how we miss that girl

Thankful Thursday

Yesterday it was only 3 degrees when we got up in the morning. By noon it was only up to 14. I was at my usual station watching out the window when I barked at Mom to come look.

Our house sets up from the road a ways but Mom could see a little black dog with a curly tail running down our road.

Mom hollered at Dad and they could see it was heading for the cross road where the traffic travels 45-50 mph

Dad jumped in his pickup and spotted the dog running in the middle of the road. When he stopped, the little dog ran right up to him. Dad scooped her up and brought the shivering little black pug home. 

She looked like she has a few years on her

Thank goodness she had a collar and tag

Dad left messages for her owners
 while Hazel & I welcomed Roxy to our home

She was quite interested in sniffing everything

I really wanted to play with her
 but she was too busy exploring. 
I guess she felt right at home because
 she pooped in the hallway 
and peed in Mom's slipper BOL!

We are thankful 
that Mom looked out the window at the right time

We are thankful
that Dad got to her before she got hurt

We are thankful 
that there was a happy ending
Her dad called and came and picked her up.

Weekend Snow

It started snowing Friday evening

We woke up Saturday morning to several inches of snow

Mom & Dad had to shovel paths for us

It started snowing again last night 
so we got up this morning to more snow!

Hazel & I made lots of footprints in the snow

Dad thinks it is strange 
that even though he shovels nice areas for us, 
we venture out into the deeper snow to pee

Just doing our part to help melt the snow BOL!

Ok! It is cold, Hazel says 
I'm going back in the house

Looks like we have more snow heading our way.
It is not going anywhere as the forecast is for
 night time single digit temps this week
