Welcome to...

I started this blog to talk about my girls, two pugs, Wrinkles & Sputters, our kids!  We got them as puppies and they were with us for over 11 years.  Sadly we lost both of our girls early in 2013.  Wrinkles passed away in my arms shortly after 1am on January 1, 2013, she had just turned 11 years old in October.  We were devastated and miss her terribly, she was our first pug, the one that started it all.  Sputters passed away on April 25, 2013, she was 11 1/2 years old.  She had been diagnosed with Lyphoma in 2008, she beat the cancer, however, the chemo took a toll on her heart and kidneys.  It was her kidneys that failed her in the end.  We were so grateful to have her 4 1/2 years after she was diagnosed.  We miss both of our girls terribly, as I mentioned they were our kids, they started our wonderful love of the Pug breed.

After starting my blog we adopted four little boy pugs, Mugzee, adopted in October 2009, Taz in May 2010, Dex October 2010 and Lucky the latest addition to our family, adopted November 2010.  So if you catch me talking about the girls and boys, or my kids, you’ll know who I mean.

I’m a stay at home Mommy to Mugzee, Taz, Dex, Lucky & Angel.  I became a Foster Mommy in May 2010 for Southern Nevada Pug Rescue.   And I love it!  

On a daily basis I may have my 4 boys, Angel and maybe a foster or a couple of house guest when their parents are on vacation.  My nephew Caiden also comes over when he is on a school break, he loves to help with the pugs.  He says he is going to be a rescuer when he grows up.

I thought this would be a great place for you to hear about our adventures with pugs.  To spread the word about rescue and just have some fun.  Oh and we love to cook, so I will be posting recipes also.

Anyway… I have so much I want to share with you about the things in my life that I love… Pugs, Kids, Fishy’s, Eating, Drinking, Decorating, Travel and just plain living life to the fullest!

I hope while your here you can find something to wag your tail about!

Cabbage Busters


Cabbage Busters or as my Dad would call them “German Hamburgers”.  My Mom got this recipe from the lady next door when I was a kid.  We loved them so much, it seemed like she would make millions of them!  She could hardly keep up with us as we would grab them off the pan as they came out of the oven.  They are like little pockets of fresh baked bread stuffed with hamburger, cabbage and onions.  Heaven! So yummy!

I had a half a head of cabbage and a little over a pound of hamburger so I picked up a package of frozen bread and made a small batch for lunch.  I got 9 out of one loaf of bread.

1/2 head of cabbage (chopped)

1 yellow or white onion (diced)

1 lb ground beef

1 loaf frozen bread (thaw overnight in the refrigerator, in a baggie with a little oil)


Sauté the onion and cabbage in a little olive or vegetable oil until tender.  Season with salt and peper.  Remove from pan and place in a bowl.


Brown hamburger, drain, add to the cabbage mixture.


I let the bread rise just a little.  I turned on the oven until it reached about 100-200 degrees then shut it off.  I placed the bread still in the baggie on a plate and set it in the oven for about 15 minutes.  Then I kneed it to get all the air out.

On a floured surface, roll out the bread, pretty thin and cut into 4x4 or 5x5 squares.  They don’t have to be perfect.


Place about 2 or 3 tablespoons of the cabbage mixture in the middle.


Pull up 2 of the corners and pinch together.  Continue until all corners are pinched into a square.



Pour a generous amount of vegetable oil onto a baking pan.  Slide the top through the oil and then turn over with the pinches on the bottom.  It’s a good idea to have the pad ready before you start to assemble them.


Bake at 350 degrees about 20-25 minutes and golden brown.  You may have to brush on more oil, don’t worry they are not greasy.  It is just like your baking a loaf of bread.  They are very hot so be careful on that first bite!
