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!

Gourmet Mother's Day Brunch on a Shoe String Budget!

Today my hubby made the most outstanding Mother’s Day Brunch for me and my Mom.  I helped by making us some homemade Orange, Pineapple, Strawberry juice in my juicer. 

It was so delicious and only cost $43 to serve four!  We enjoyed it in the comfort of our home followed by a nap with pugs afterwards.  The experience with my Mom was priceless! 

Thank You Honey!!!  You Rock!!!

Beautiful Flowers for Me and my Mom!
My hubby brought these home from the grocery store!

Bird in the Nest with Lobster, Asparagus and Hollandaise Sauce




The lobster was the most expensive ingredient purchased at Sam’s Club $27 for two really nice tails.  The fresh fruit, Aparagus and everything else also came from Sam’s Cub

He used a packaged Hollandaise Sauce by Knorr made with half n half
instead of milk and brightened it with a little fresh squeezed lemon.

It was such a beautiful relaxing day!

Funny story, when I first told my Mom that Young made us this most wonderful brunch she said bless his heart, and said it was delicious.  During the meal I asked isn’t this good, her response “it was ok but not something special”  HaHaHaHaHa… LMAO!  Oh and by the way, she thinks he is my boyfriend and can’t believe that she has know him 20 years!

Happy Mother’s Day!
