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!

My friends at Southern Nevada Pug Rescue are really having a tough time.  They are crying out for help like I have never seen or heard before.  There are fears of them not being able to keep the rescue going.

They have struggled through so many hard times in the past years and everyone has come through for them.  However, lately vet bills are rising but the donations are not coming in. 

Recently they have had fund raisers and give away’s with very small returns.  I know I have asked for the $5 Challenge in the past, and it is time to do it again!!!.  Please donate and spread the word. 

The message is true if everyone of their 1937 Facebook Fans would donate just $5 that would be a huge amount of money for them $9,685. 

$9,685 Dollars!!!  That’s a LOT OF MONEY!!!

PLEASE!  That’s all I am REALLY asking is that each fan donate $5!

As long as I have known them they have never turned a pug away.  Take Precious for instance, she was barely 1 years old and had mass cell lumps that the vets had never seen before…

Sadly… Precious passed away after just a few days in rescue.  I cried so hard for this little girl, they were all heartbroken but she had cancer that had progressed too fast and was already in her lungs. She was greatly loved in her short time with them!

I don’t know if you remember my foster Van, he had been kicked so hard that not only was his leg knocked out of the socket, but his testicles were shoved up inside of him.  Then he was dropped off at the pound in so much pain that they could not even operate on him for a couple of days until they adminstered pain medication to get the pain under control.  Thanks to SNPR Van recovered and became such a happy boy and lives in his very loving forever home!


And my foster Bleu who came to us in October 2011 and was adopted in February 2012.  He was covered in such a bad infection all over his body, in his ears, both of his knees were so bad he could hardly take a step without falling over.

Bleu before many medical baths, and two knee surgeries.

Bleu standing tall and happy after 2 knee surgeries!


Please I am begging, let them continue to do
their brilliant work!

DONATE $5!  That’s All!
