Awards and Internet Funnies

Hi everyone!

Phew! The heat has arrived in the Pacific Northwest. We are all sweating away and trying to stay cool. We ran out early Saturday morning to the off leash park, but it was already too hot to play for long.

I have been enjoying my iced coffees and iced tea. I was buying iced coffee at Starbucks, but that was too expensive. I discovered cold brewed coffee and now I make my own at home!! I also use instant coffee when I don't want to make the brewed. ;o) My next project is to try sweet tea made with Splenda instead of sugar. If you have any good tea recipes, please let me know!

We have been awarded a very awesome award from our friends Wilma the Pug, and Sluggo and Brigitte too! This is the Versatile Blogger Award! We are proud and honored to receive this award. Thank you very much Wilma, Sluggo and Brigitte!

We need to share seven things you don't know about us. Hmmmmm....we try not to keep secrets, it's too hard to remember them. OK, here goes!

1. Charlie does not like Honey puppy. If you give Honey any attention, Charlie will come over and glare at you. If Honey puppy does not come to bed with everyone else, Charlie just can't lie still until Honey gets to bed.

2. Ollie has the cutest little whorls in his fur. He has one on each side at his shoulders and one under each ear. The ear ones are so sweet!! It looks like he has buttons!

3. Dodger has the loudest snore of all. When he starts to sleep, he lets out this really loud gurgling snore! He doesn't make the other puggy noises, just a big snore.

4. Penny has the cutest under bite. She has teeny, tiny teeth and with her under bite, well, it just melts your heart.

5. Honey pretends to not like any of the other dogs. But when we all snuggle up in bed, she will snuggle with Ollie.'s a secret and she would be embarrassed if she knew I had shared.

6. If we stop at a store or someplace with the dogs in the car, either hubby or I will stay in the car with them. When I go in to the store, everyone is happy and quiet. When dad goes in to the store, they all whine and cry and jump at the windows! Talk about favoritism!

7. All of the dogs go around to all of their food dishes and eat. It's a rotating buffet for them every meal time. We started with Charlie, Ollie and Honey eating in the same location every time. Now everyone just wanders around and I assume they all get enough food. Otherwise you have to stand in the kitchen with them until they finish eating to referee.

Thanks again Wilma, we just love awards!!

I wanted to share something about Wilma and the gang with you. Wilma and I are members of the Pets Blogroll. It is a great way to meet other bloggers and find lots of information about dogs and all kinds of pets. I have really noticed an increase in readership since I joined. So check them out! We hope to see you there!

Lastly, here are a couple of recent pug related internet funnies I found. They are so cute and funny. Click on this link to see a cute Sheldon Comic about pugs. If you are checking after 8/16, please check the archives for this days comic.

Have a great week!!


  1. Dear Puglette
    We left a message and then the computer got an error message and wiped the comment out!
    But,,,, we are back!
    Congratulations on your award.... oh you deserve this.
    We loved all the secrets about all the beloved doggys. We laughed as you explained all the different personalities.
    I think we saw the little buttons on Olie when we met you in Seattle.
    All your precious little babies are adorable and so loved.
    We can just hear the snoring and see everyone walking from bowl to bowl to eat.
    The funnys were soooo adorably cute.
    Thank you for the smiles.
    We love you

  2. Hi Puglette,
    Thanks for sharing those tidbits with us. It's funny how these little quirks aren't so exclusive. For us, it's if Mommy goes out of sight. We really give Dad the business. Mom doesn't mind, cuz she just sends him into the store and gets to hand with us.
    The whole sleeping thing though, Sluggo has to be the last one in bed. If we aren't all together, he gets all restless.He used to have to have a special lambie in bed, but lately he doesn't pop up to run and get it.Mom misses that.
    Thanksfor the Blogroll shout out. I hope more people join.

  3. OLLIE! I must see your ear whorls! Please ask your mom to take a picture.


    I can't relax or enjoy my day until I've seen some Ollie Ear Whorls.

  4. Congratulations on your awardie! I like learning more things about you all. I want to see the ear whorls now, too!

  5. hi puglette!

    congratulations on your award and your funnies made our whole day!

    big hugs to all of you!

    m & e

  6. Verry cool! We loved learning about all of you!

    SO much cuteness in one house! How DO you do it?

    Mom LOOOVES her iced coffee too! Since you asked for iced tea thought she'd pass along her fave (EVERYONE that has it just LOVES it!). WalMart has their own (Great Value) brand of Crystal Light. Get the kind in the tubular can thing. Mom mixes 1 pack of sugar free lemon iced tea along with 1 pack of sugar free lemonade in a gallon pitcher.

    Voila...almost no calorie Arnold Palmer!!!!!

    Enjoy and keep the cute pics coming!


  7. I love the puggy bak ride pic, amazing. I've been here before so decided to delve into the archives. Your dogs are great. My little westie has an overbite but still looks so, so cute.
