We're home!

We're "dog tired" after our adventure in New Hampster, but here are a few pictures of our trip.

The long car ride. Mommy said we were pretty good. Most of the time we snoozed.
We went to "Dog Mountain" in St. Johnsbury, VT. This is a stained glass window from the Chapel.
This is us after Daddy got us out of the car at Cabot's. Mommy and Daddy got to go on the cheese tour but we had to stay out. No dogs allowed. Uh, don't they know we are PUGS, not dogs?

Here is another picture of us in the Chapel at Dog Mountain. We were allowed to go ever where, even in the gallery that featured Stephen Huneck's wonderful works.

That's right! We're going on vacation! Mommy and Daddy will be married a year next Sunday and they are taking us away with this. We're so excited!

They are taking us to this place called New Hampster. I'm not sure what that's all about. Hampsters up north or something like that. (Um boys, I think they mean NEW HAMPSHIRE. - Hippie)

Whatever! We're excited about your first ever vacation. We're going to see some family. Mommy said it was better if we went with them seeing as what happened the last time they went away without us. Remember Duke eating 95 cents? It didn't end pretty!

We're going to start packing tomorrow. I just hope we don't forget anything. . .flossies, kibble, babies, beds, cookies, and Mommy said something about a crate but I'm SURE she meant it was for Hippie while we were gone. Why would we need a crate? Or belly bands for that matter? (Heh, heh, heh, silly pugs. P.S. Kitty party at my pad starting on Thursday night!)

Oh well, we promise Mommy and Daddy will take lots of pictures!

No Girls Allowed!

That's right, it's a Fire Hydrant Club camping trip and it's girl-free! Sluggo picked us up at the pug meet and we're headed to some fun in the sun.

Murphy brought plenty of pillows and blankets:

Duke brought flossies and beef jerky. Being a good club member, he HAD to make sure it was fit for his friends, so he taste tested it before we left.

Murphy packed plenty of snacks. I told Mommy and Daddy they didn't need to check our bags, we knew what snacks our friends like. (And what kind of beer, too! Sam's Octoberfest baby!!Shhhhhhhh......)

Duke, don't be a wimp, you won't get homesick, you'll be with all your pals. (Kids!)

Sluggo picked us up at the pug meet and we were on our way. Stay tuned for our adventures! I hear Sluggo has a few tricks up his sleeve!

A good day for Mommy

Mommy wanted us to write about this good deed she did today. It had to do with CATS! How can that be good? (Ummm, hello, your sister is a cat?) Ah yes, we love cats.

Anyway, Mommy volunteered at a cat shelter today for the United Way's Day of Caring. And it made her come home and give Hippie a kiss and tell her that she was so glad she had just ONE - picking up after 50 cats in a day will making you feel like that -and she was glad that she was able to rescue her. I think cat poop fumes got to her.

But Mommy's right. Rescue is a great thing, no matter if you're a cat or a dog. Mommy said there are so many dogs in the world and so many cats who have been tossed aside because people thing they are disposable, like a pair of pants you don't like anymore. It's sad and it makes Mommy said. It also makes us all said when you hear about dogs or cats that aren't treated right. Mommy met a kitty today who was abused. Some stupid kids poured bleach on a cat and it when in his eyes and now his eyes are all messed up. Mommy met him at the shelter today. Despite being abused, this kitty was still lovey dovey. We think that's pretty brave.

There are a lot of dogs and cats out there who have lived rough lives. We think it's important to encourage people to give those fur friends a second chance.

Mommy also had another great part of her day. She got to see Sluggo's mom, Coley. Coley ran right up to Mommy and "woo-woo-ed". This made Mommy happy. We're going to try and visit Coley soon. Maybe we can get Sluggo to come! (And Wilma and Brigitte, too.)

Here is Coley's mom, Jen and Coley. Jen volunteered with Mommy today.
