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.  I became a Foster Mommy in May 2010 for Southern Nevada Pug Rescue.   And I love it!  I also take care of my Mom and her 13 year old Shiatsu mix Phoebe.   

On a daily basis I may have my 4 boys, a couple of fosters and maybe some house guest when their parents are on vacation.  My Mom, Phoebe, and when my nephew Caiden is on a school break he is here to help with the pugs, he loves teaching them how to use the doggie door and 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!

Turning 55!

Today I am turning 55 years old!  I love getting older because if I wasn’t getting older, well I would probably be dead!  Not something I really want to be!

My body and mind aren’t what they used to be, my skin is like old peoples skin, but hey, I am still here to talk about it!

I was born on August 17th, 1955, in Las Vegas, NV.  I have seen and experienced so many wonderful things in my life and I am looking forward to a lot more.

Here are a a few of my favorite things that happened in 1955.

DisneyLand Opened July 17, 1955 in Anaheim, California! 

This was Walt Disney’s Opening Day Speach:

To all who come to this happy place: welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past…and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts which have created America…with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”

RCA predicted that the American Home would have a picture frame tv (Flat-Screen) by 1975.

Most historians date the beginning of the modern civil rights movement in the United States to December 1, 1955. That was the day when an unknown seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. This brave woman, Rosa Parks, was arrested and fined for violating a city ordinance, but her lonely act of defiance began a movement that ended legal segregation in America, and made her an inspiration to freedom-loving people everywhere.

The Thunderbird!  Introduced in 1955 as a 2-seat roadster, the car evolved into a luxury sports coupe, and over the years the emphasis shifted back and forth between luxury and sport.

Salesman Ray Kroc visited the McDonald brothers in San Bernadino and they told him they needed a nationwide franchising agent. Within one year, Kroc’s first McDonald’s franchise opened in Des Plaines, Illinois.
