I'm a pretty simple kinda-guy. I like what I like... I do what I want to do... Pretty carefree - until last night. Everything and everyone around me was chaotic! I couldn't even lay in the chair with my bone or "baby" and take a proper nap with all the racket going on.
What was all the hubbub you ask?
Last night the family was busy making sure costumes were ready to be donned, there was enough candy on hand for the trick-or-treaters and the school parties, creepy hats were being created to be worn at school and oh yeah, a big school project that needs to be turned in tomorrow was being finalized. And of course, all of this had to be done with a lot of laughter, scary noises and frightful decorations.
I have decided to lay low this year until after all of the festivities are over. I don't care for costumes or sweaters or shirts in the first place so I've decided that Halloween isn't really a holiday for me.
How about you? Are you going to trick-or-treat? What is your costume?
Happy Birthday to the best people mommy on the planet!
Happy Birthday to you!
First things first. Happy Birthday to our mom. The old gal has made it another year despite visits from "The Wrinkle Fairy", "The Big Butt Fairy", "The Gray Hair Fairy" and all their fairy friends that have made the trip from old-age fairyland to make their presence known.
We love you mom.
You, by far, have the most comfy and cushy body in the whole family. We love the extra pounds. That helps make snuggle time the best. We don't mind your gray hair (we just don't like the icky smell of the chemicals you like to use to get rid of those pesky gray's). We certainly don't mind your wrinkles - the more you get the more you start to resemble an English Bulldog and being a dog is cool! But your big butt does cause problems for Oscar on occasion when he is trying to "share" the recliner with you. We like that you are always cold and need to layer on the clothing or cover up with a blanket when you are sitting down. We don't mind sharing the blanket with you. But most of all Mom, we love you because of your most delicious treats that you are always making for us. Without you, we would probably whither away to mere existences of ourselves and that would definitely not be good.
So Mom, we want to wish you the best of days with many more to come. (Just remember to take your medicine for your achy knees, continue to take your vitamins and eat good for a healthy shiny coat, visit the doctor and stay up-to-date on your shots, but most importantly, always remember to wear your glasses. We wouldn't want you running into anything or falling down the steps. Old people break their hips during falls all the time and we wouldn't want that to happen to you.)
... is the way he will come over to see me,
for no reason, just to let me know I'm
important to him
... is the way he is always ready to lick the
jelly off my nose...
... is the way he looks into my eyes and finds
contentment in simply being near me
... is the way he will run all over the yard,
fetch a soggy tennis ball and bring it back
to me as if to say "look mom, it's all I have,
but it's yours"
... is the way he wakes me up in the morning by pushing
his cold wet nose in my ear and snuffing loudly
... is the way he shreds toilet paper all over the house,
because it's fun even though he knows he shouldn't
... is the way he's sure he can catch the ducks in the
... is the way he comes over to me when he is sad
... is the way he wedges himself near me when I am sad and
push all others away, to console me with his love
... is the way he pounces on crickets in the backyard
... is the way he looks perplexed when they escape
... is the way he is terrified of the evil pink hula hoop
... is the way he doesn't mind how much of that horrid
perfume I'm wearing just because it was a gift from
my relative who's visiting
... is the way he doesn't care about bad hair day or
... is the way he loves you, even when you are impatient
with him and have no time this morning for a game
... is the way his coat feels like liquid silk under
... is the way he finds wisdom beyond words
Just a quick reminder that if you are in the area tomorrow, please stop by the West Chester Veterinary Care for their open house from 10am-2pm. Visit their website for more information.
We're so glad everyone like the photo yesterday of Taz and the praying mantis. This epic battle raged for at least half an hour. We're not quite sure how it ended since they took the match under the deck. We heard a lot of scuffling going on. We kept yelling at Taz to "run away! She wants to eat your head!" But he just wouldn't listen to us. The mantis got a couple good licks in on Taz' nose too! What was even more funny was when our girl was taking pictures, the praying mantis actually turned and started walking toward her! She was after her head too! Good thing Taz was there to divert the mantis' attention back to himself.
(No need to be afraid. Dogzilla is really only sweet Emma.)

We posted last week that we were going to attend PugFairat Stonelick State Park. WRONG!!! We didn't get to attend the festivities at all! Apparently Mom thought we would be too rowdy and ill-mannered so we had to stay home. She did attend the party and from the smells on her shoes and jeans, what a party it was!
She said her head was spinning from Pug cuteness. She's never seen so many Pugs in one place. There were all different sizes ranging from a four-week old baby to a few seniors. Lots of other dogs attended the party too - it wasn't just for Pugs but the event did benefit Ohio Pug Rescue. The venue for the festivities was really nice too. Lots of room for the Pugs to walk around, play, etc. There even was a lake with a beach!
Mom took as many pictures as she could until the batteries died in her camera. Unfortunately, there are no pictures of the parade. What a hoot it was though!!! The belle of the parade was Bella and her owner (Peace!). There were two corgi's and two white poodles who also rode on the head float with them. The rest of the contestants paraded behind. There were pugs dressed as lobsters, convicts, prom dates, pumpkins, bananas, monkeys, bumblebees, clowns... so many more!!! Absolutely hysterical!
We've posted lots of pictures from the shindig. Enjoy all this smooshy-face Pug cuteness!!!
