It's hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is just one week away! This year, Henry received an invitation to come to Thanksgiving dinner from Grammy. In previous years, the pugs have stayed at home while the humans went to Grammy's and hung out with the family. But Grammy knows how Henry has been having some separation anxiety and how Henry, by himself, is a really good boy. So, she gave him the green light to come on over for Thanksgiving dinner.

We are super excited to be able to bring Henry to Thanksgiving. Now, he just needs to live up to that good boy part wink

Trick or Treat Success


On Halloween, Henry proved once again just how #HenryStrong he really is. He was quite spunky when we got home from work and was ready to walk. So, we suited him up in his costume and set off on our normal trick or treat route. Even though Henry was full of energy, we brought the stroller with us in case our little pirate hit some rough seas.

We ended up using the stroller for small bits of the walk, but for the most part Henry walked the whole route himself. He was so proud to visit his neighborhood friends and to get some treats.

Happy Halloween

Arr, Matey! It's Henry the Pirate Pug!

After Henry had his eye removed in April, we knew exactly what the pugs were going to be for Halloween. How could they not be pirates?

Liking to get a jump on things, we ordered pirate costumes for Henry, Benjamin and Luna and they were delivered before the end of April. Little did we know, that Benjamin and Luna would not be here to be part of Henry's pirate crew.

It's a bittersweet day, but we know that if they were here Benny and Luna would insist on hitting the high seas and bringing back all the treasure they could find. We're not sure how much trick or treating Henry will be up for this year, so we are going to play the night by ear. This might be the year Henry is the official candy giver outer.

And as a extra Halloween bonus, here is a look back at the pug's Halloween costumes over the years.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Sol, Benjamin and Henry

I know today is not our normal flashback day, but I wanted to share this picture of Sol and the boys to celebrate St. Patrick's day. Sol was never one for dressing up, but she sure could rock a bandana.

On a sadder note, March 8th marked the 4th anniversary of Sol's passing to the Rainbow Bridge. In many ways it doesn't seem like that long ago. Of the pugs, I think Luna misses Sol the most. Which is odd because I was worried about how two alpha females would get along, but they got along fantastic. Sol had a calming effect on Luna and helped Luna let go of a lot of her nervous energy. I don't know how Sol did it, but somehow she managed to communicate and let Luna know that all was ok and that she could just relax. In teaching her that great lesson, Sol always taught Luna a few tricks on how to always get her way. I'm thankful for the first gift Solsey, but I could have lived without you sharing your knowledge on how to always get what you want. wink

Ringing in 2014

Luna and Benjamin

We're back! Thanks for your understanding of our brief hiatus for the last few weeks of 2103. It was a super busy end of the year, as I'm sure it was for all of you, but the pugs have all been well.

Luna was super relieved that her end of the year antics (seen here and here) did not land on her Santa's naughty list. She found out on Christmas morning she was still on the good list and enjoyed some super yummy holiday treats.


Compared to most of the US, the weather in FL has been delightful. Henry spent a lot of the break sunning himself and we got in a few walks with all 3 of the pugs.

Happy 2014 pug lovers!

Happy Thanksgiving

Benjamin and Henry


I know this post is a few days early, but the pugs have decided that they are going to take a little vacation this week. In their eyes it will hardly be a vacation. Thanksgiving is coming and they must plan and ensure that everything goes off without a hitch!

So look for us Monday of next week and Benjamin, Henry and Luna will give you an update on how the big feast went.

Happy Thanksgiving! Have a wonderful week!
