What I Have Learned and Now Know

I bet you guys have been wondering where I've been. I haven't posted anything in a week but please know that it's not my fault. Nope. I think you know who to blame but please go easy on her.

I've been doing a lot of thinking about things lately and one phrase keeps coming to mind - to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Are you guys familiar with this phrase? It basically means that there's a time and place for everything. And a time and a place for nothing. Confused yet?

Mom has been super busy since we got back from our road trip and she keeps getting busier every day. When she's busy I can't be busy because I need her to turn on the 'puter and help me blog. And if she doesn't even have time to hang out with me then she surely won't have time to help me blog. So I've decided to take a little blogging break.

I started my blog over two years ago and I've had such a blast with it. I've made some great friends over the years and I love each and every one of you like family. I've been so fortunate to meet a lot of you in pugson and for this I'm forever grateful. I keep all of you in a special place in my heart and feel your love every day.

I don't know how long my break will last but I will try to read your blogs as much as I can. I may not always be able to leave a comment on your blog but please know that I'm keeping up with you and what you're doing.

I promise I'll be back and probably before long. I know you'll miss me and I'll miss you, too. Please know that I'm okay and that I'll be back soon. I wrap my paws around you and hug you all!

Road Trip Booty

One of the best parts about my road trip was all the booty I got from all the pugs and people I visited. I mean, just look at all of it! I didn't expect any of it but I love it all.

Aunt Nancy wanted to make sure everyone I met knew who I was so she made me a cool name tag. She even bought me a snazzy tie/sash to wear around my neck. Mom said I looked dashing wearing it but I think it made my head look fat.

Howie bought me some delicious refrigerated treats. It's a good thing we had the cooler with us because as soon I as gave Howie his treats I threw these in. I didn't want them to spoil in the Texas heat.

Do you know who's picture that is on the cover of my very special photo album? Of course it's Howie! He insisted that his maw put his picture in it so I would know who gave it to me. Silly Howie!

Isn't this the neatest photo album ever? I'm going to have Mom print out pics of me with my friends and put them in it.

AnnieBelly bought me this neat ball toy. I've never seen one like it before and am saving it for a special occasion like a holiday. Hey, maybe I'll play with it on Monday to celebrate Labor Day.

Java knew that I'd be hungry on the road and surprised me with these goodies. Yummy!

I know you've seen these donuts before but they are very special to me. I primarily used them as pillows in the car but since I've been home I've been playing with them. Melissa made these for me to remind me of my visit with her and Emmitt.

Pearly Poo would never show up at anything empty handed now would she? No way! She totally surprised me with this racy little box. I knew there were treats in it but Mom said I needed to wait until we got home to dig into them.

Pearly's gift was not only cool but also appropriate since we dined on burgers at a restaurant on a lake. She's one smart puggy!

Can you believe that Aunt Nancy painted this for me? Well not just for me but for Mom and Dad, too. Isn't it beautiful? And the frame is just perfect. We are still deciding where to hang it but I think it's going to end up on the first wall you see as you enter the house from the garage. This wall is also close to my bowls so I will see it every single day.

Here's a close up of the painting. Aunt Nancy said she painted to it remind me of my road trip. She knew we drove past many fields and meadows that looked just like this. Everytime I look at this painting I will think of Aunt Nancy and my road trip.

Thank you again to my friends for showering me with such wonderful gifts. I really appreciate all the love you've shown me over the years and I'm so grateful I got to meet some of you in pugson.

As for the rest of my friends that I haven't met, I'm already thinking about taking another road trip so you never know where I might go!
