I know we adopted Luna a long time ago, 5 years ago to be exact, but even after all those years, I still reflect on how far the little girl has come.

One of the most heartbreaking things for me when we first adopted her is that she would never get comfortable and rest. The first night in her new home, she literally tried to sleep standing up. Of course, over time, she started to trust us and her surroundings more and she became more relaxed. But, I like to contrast the little pug on day one that would try to sleep standing up to the pug today that is all about making herself comfortable. Luna is a lap dog and when she sits on your lap, she almost shapes you into the form that is most comfortable to her. Not to mention that she is the biggest bed hog around.

She has come a long way and many times when I see her passed out in one of her cozy beds or her little 16 pound body taking up practically the whole sofa, I can't help but think back to that first night and smile at how much Luna has changed over the years.

Solsey’s Painting


Roberta, the winner of the Sol Painting raffle, sent along this picture last week letting me know the painting of Sol was delivered. Thanks, Roberta, for sharing the picture.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. We are expecting more gorgeous weather this weekend, so hopefully we will have time to take the pugs on some sort of outdoor adventure.

Sol Painting Winner

Painting of Sol

Roberta was the lucky ticket holder of the winning raffle ticket in the Sol Painting raffle. The portrait of Sol, painted by Grammy, will be headed to Annapolis, MD. Which, coincidentally, isn't too far from where we used to live in MD. We took the boys to a dog park in Annapolis once and Henry impressed everyone by swimming with the big dogs in the choppy Chesapeake Bay.

Thanks to everyone who entered the raffle. In total we raised $130 for the Sol Sunshine Memorial Fund. Congratulations Roberta. The painting of Sol is headed your way.

Side note: Roberta's pugs, Coco & Beau, are also Today's Featured Pug Picture. So you get to see Solsey's new friends.

Sol's Painting

When we thought of the idea to have Grammy paint a picture of Sol to raffle off, we had one condition for Grammy. She must paint two pictures. We knew once we saw the finished painting we would never be able to part with it. So, we doubled Grammy's workload. Lucky, for us she was more than willing to paint two portraits.

The photo above show's Solsey's painting hanging in our living room.

Also, I updated the original raffle post to note that the painting size is 12" x 12".

You can enter the raffle to win the painting of Sol here.

Sol Painting Raffle


We asked Solsey's talented Grammy is she would be kind enough to paint a picture of Sol that we could raffle off to benefit the Sol Sunshine Memorial Fund. Grammy happily complied and I am very happy to announce the raffle for this one of a kind Solsey painting (pictured above).

Here's how the raffle works:

And incase you were wondering here is a little bit about the artist of the painting.

Artist Sheryl Pascal Gormley currently works in both watercolor and acrylics. Her awards include numerous cash prizes as well as ribbons. She is also an accomplished photographer and writer. 'Almost Scared to Death', her current novel, is nearing completion. The illustrations for her four children's books are in the final stages. As President of Ormond Writers' League she was largely responsible for getting the members to complete an anthology. Her cover photograph was taken on Daytona Beach, Florida. The paperback book, 'Peanut Butter and Jellyfish', is a collection of diverse short stories, published in 2003, available from InfinityPublishing.com

Thinking Outside the Box


Henry is always one to blaze his own trail.

Sol Sunshine Memorial Fund Update

I am so happy to report that in just 3 days, as of this writing, $1,010.00 has been contributed to the Sol Sunshine Memorial Fund via Pledgie. I don't know the exact amount, but I know other donations have been made outside of Pledgie as well.

I am truly at a loss for words. All I can say is that all of you out there in OBP land are the most caring and generous people that I have ever met. Or should I say that I have never met? Either way it doesn't matter. Whether I have met you or not, there are no better pug supporters out there than all of you!

The Sol Sunshine Memorial Fund will remain open for donations and it is my goal to ensure that the fund makes as much of an impact on the lives of senior pugs as Solsey made on our lives. I have big paws to fill because Sol made an everlasting impression on us. That means, like Henry, I will have to do some out of the box thinking of my own.

Time for the 2010 Calendar Contest

Can you believe it? It is time to open up the 2010 Calendar Contest to submissions. My how time flies!

The format of the contest is the same as previous years. You submit your adorable pug pictures during the month of August, I sort through and create the calendar during the month of September and the calendars go on sale in early October.

So I challenge you to inundate me with adorable pug pictures!

You can find all the contest details here and you can submit your picture to the calendar contest here.

As always, a portion of the proceeds from each calendar sale will benefit pug rescue. This year we have teamed up with the good folks at Central Florida Pug Rescue.

A Picture of Baby Jax

Baby Jax

Ann was kind enough to send over a picture of Baby Jax with his vet tech taken after his liver shunt surgery. Last I heard, he was recovering nicely and his new family was having a hard time keeping the little guy on bed rest grin.
