Role Reversal

Luna and Henry

Well look at this! Luna outlasted Henry in the sun!

Both Henry and Luna were laying in the sun together, but Henry broke first and went to the shade. After Henry left, Luna sat up with her chest out a bit, super proud that she outlasted the sun lover himself!

On a different note, we have been having some issue with commenting on posts. I know some are having issues commenting from time to time. I am working on getting that fixed, but it happens so sporadically that I'm not 100% sure what is going on. I appreciate your patience while I work through this issue. If you are not able to comment let me know and I will try to work through it with you. Also, over the weekend, we had some pretty unfriendly comments. Because of that, I have turned on comment moderation. So, when you post a comment it will not appear right away. Instead it will appear after I have approved it. I will try to keep this delay to a minimum, but I appreciate your patience.

Bro & Sis

Luna and Henry

This picture is a bit of an outtake, but I love how it looks like Henry is leaning in to get a picture taken with his little sis.

Luna and Henry

When I started taking this shot, Henry was laying down next to Luna and paying no attention to me. I snapped my fingers to get him to look at the camera. Instead he got up and ran towards me. In sitting up, he leaned in to Luna and I was lucky enough to get this shot.

On The Move


Little Luna on the move casting quite the shadow! Does this shadow make me look fat?

Well, hello handsome!


Henry has finally been sprung from the cone of shame!

On Friday, we took Henry in for his post surgery, follow up appointment. The eye vet was very pleased with how everything is healing and removed the stitches from Henry's eye. After the stitches were removed we had to leave the cone on for one more day. But, Saturday was a happy happy day when Henry finally got to lose the cone. I'm not sure who was happiest about it. Henry, me or Benjamin, Luna and Cupid. Henry was a one man wrecking crew in that thing. I think the funniest incident was when he knocked a night light off the wall when rushing to the kitchen to get a treat.

In any case, I am so relieved to be on this side of the surgery. I had a lot of angst going into this one. I'm not exactly sure why. Usually, I am nervous, but I know that everything is going to be ok in the long run. If only I would have know how well Henry would handle everything. That would have saved me a lot of worrying wink

Part 3, The Finale:  How did G’Ma do?

Benjamin and Cupid

So, we think maybe G'Ma thought it was going to be a little easier than she originally envisioned it. It was hard work. Luna was not so cooperative with her breathing inhaler. While it really is a 2 person job, either of the OBP humans can do it alone in a pinch. But with Luna being, um, particular, shall we say, she did not want anything to do with G'Ma and the breathing tube.

The pugs were pretty cooperative overall, though. They ate their meals, did their business in the back yard, took their pills accordingly and settled into a mostly typical routine. Well, that was until bedtime. We had suggested that G'Ma sleep in the master bedroom bed so that the pugs would not be on heightened awareness through the night and they stay as close to routine as possible since they are serious creatures of habit. However, at bed time none of the pugs were having any that. So, poor G'Ma ended up sleeping on the sofa! And Henry slept up there with her and Benny on his bucket bed on the ottoman nearby and even Luna and the cat eventually joined her. So, there was G'Ma sharing the sofa with 2 dogs and a cat. I cannot imagine how horrible of a restless night sleep it was.

We have to confess. We did peak at the "cat cam" which is a remote camera we have in the house which was originally purchased just to monitor Cupid when we took the pugs to Maryland for a few days and left Cupid with Grammy and a neighbor tending to her here and there. We wanted to be sure we saw Cupid from time to time since due to her week of diabetes a while ago we know that she can have a flare up at any point and stress induces that scenario. Not sure if Cupid considers us leaving the house a vacation for her or if it stresses her out. So, we had gotten a kitty cam to watch her. So, we sneaked a peak on the kitty cam and saw G'Ma laid out on the sofa with animals everywhere and looking very uncomfortable.

Everything else seemed to go well. None of the critters were upset with us when we got home so that was nice. The Orioles won both of the games we watched. One against the Boston Red Sox and the other versus the Pittsburgh Pirates. So that was super cool. The weather was nice. We managed to stay almost completely free of anxiety which made the trip even more enjoyable. When we lived in Maryland we occasionally dropped the boys (pre-Luna) with G'Ma for an overnight. But that was 10 years ago. Since then we have not been away for an overnight. There have been times when one of us, of course, have been gone but not until a few weeks ago have we both been gone from the house overnight without them. We have taken them to the mountains, recently to Maryland, to the 1000 Pugs photo shoot in Miami (let's just say we are happy that we took a few of our own photos) and to a pug meet up several years ago. So, they usually go with us. They always get to go. But this time it was a 2 legged animal getaway only. And we all made it through. Thanks to G'Ma for coming down and biting off more than she expected to chew. And thanks to Grammy for being there as a back up during this time if needed. And of course to Grammy every day for the love and work she puts in all time.

We truly could not make it work (we'd be homeless, penniless and likely pugless) if we didn't have the super support we have for our family of fur. Thanks to everyone for their continued support of this wacky OBP family! How would you do caring for this clan? I'd be surprised if your routines were not close to what we do or even crazier! To love a pug is to give everything and get wet sloppy kisses and piddles on the carpet back. grin It's all a day in the life at the home of senior pugs. #seniorsarestillcoolerthanpuppies
