Fit for a King

Photo by Jennifer & Mary

We kicked off Henry's birthday with a trip to the beach, but this wasn't any ordinary trip to the beach. The pugs were going to the beach to meet longtime blog reader Jennifer and her Mom, Mary. It was so great meeting them both and the pugs simply loved them. Not only were they so very nice, they also had great petting hands and they brought a little Easter basket for the pugs. Here is a shot of Luna with Jennifer with Luna doing her very own Easter Bunny impersonation.

Henry was definitely on cloud nine as he got to take about a 20 minute car ride to the beach, then a short walk to the actual beach and then there was water, sand, dogs, people and lots of petting. An ideal day for him.

In addition to meeting Jennifer & Mary the pugs also met a little turtle that was hanging out on the beach.

And look at little Miss Luna. It looks like she is enjoying her brother's birthday fun too.

We spent a few hours on the beach and by the time we got back to the truck, the pugs were wiped out. We got them buckled into the car, gave them a little treat from their Easter basket and before we knew it the car was filled with a chorus of pug snoring.

When we got back home, we brushed all the sand that the pugs decided to bring home with them out of their coats and then the left the pugs to get a little nap. Later that night, it was ice cream, chewing and more snoring. I think their little beach adventure tuckered them out!

A big thank you to Jennifer & Mary for meeting us and snapping so many pictures. Thanks to them I could take a day off from being behind the camera grin

Happy Birthday Henry!


Today Henry turns 8 and we like to think that officially makes him King Henry VIII. Although, I think he is a much kinder ruler than the original King Henry VIII.

We have a pretty big day planned today that is jammed full of all the things Henry likes to do.

And I think after 7 years he still wears the crown well. The cape, well, he may need a longer one of those.

Benny’s Birthday Fun


On Saturday we had a lot of fun spoiling our new 8 year old. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and the day got off to a slow start so we spent some time outside, in the yard, soaking up the sun and enjoying the weather.

After that I took Benny on a little walk all by himself. I think he really liked that. He loves to walk with the others, but sometimes I think they all enjoy getting to go out by themselves.

Later that day, Benny took a little nap while we went out and hunted for his favorite bone. For some reason, we haven't been able to find them recently. After a couple of stops we finally found them and bought all they had so Benny would have a little stockpile.

We debated on what to have for dinner but then settled on pizza because pizza crust is pretty high up on Benny's favorite treats list. He seemed to like his pizza crust and after about an hour we gave him his favorite peanut butter bone that he hasn't had in about 6 months or more (Henry & Luna also got a peanut butter bone to chew). This made him really excited and he chewed for the rest of the night.

Needless to say, by about 10 PM we had one tired pug on our hands.

Happy Birthday Benjamin!

Today Benjamin turns 8 years old and we realized that there are conveniently 8 letters in Benny's name. So what could be more fitting than a look back at Baby Benny over the years using each letter of his name.


B for Baby: He will always be our Baby Benny.


E for Eats Everything: It's year 2 and Benjamin is still very fond of mulch, rocks and lots of other things that are not good for him.


N for Never Ending Energy: In year 3 we thought some of Benny's puppy energy would have faded by now, but he is still going strong.


J for Just Curious: In year 4 Benny finally started to calm down a bit but he was still curious about everything.


A for Awesome: Sure Benny has always been awesome, but by the time he was 5 he blossomed into his quirky, lovable self.


M for Mr. Manner: At 6 years old, Benjamin became quite the mannerly gentleman. Not sure how it happened, but I'll take it.


I for In Love with Puffy: Even after 7 years Benny is still inseparable from his puffy.


N for Next Adventure: At 8 Benny is ready for his next adventure.
