Mom was home yesterday with a hurt heel so we couldn't blog until this morning. She busted the little sack we all have in our heel to protect us when we walk, she must have smacked her foot against the concrete to hard and now she is paying for that, also she wears thin sandals. I keep telling her she is WAYYYY to old to wear skinny shoes anymore but she doesn't listen to me.

We are so excited about how well our little MYSTERY BOX is a doing.  Here is the list of peoples we have so far so if we missed you please let me know at our email...simpson_longatyahoodotcom.
1.Frankie and Ernie
2. Janice Webb
3.Idaho PugRanch
4. Finn-Marrianne Howard
6. Cinderella
7. Sarge
8. Ruby C.
9. Ellen G. Momma to Webster, Whitney, Zoe, Peyton and Liberty
10. Mayzie Carlton
12. Zooperson
13. Slimmer Pugs

Isn' t this just great folks. I feel really bad about all the peoples who don't live in the USA that wanted in on the raffle.  Mom may just have to make you all some fudge and mail it to you.

Pickle Creek Soap and Lip Balm.   The lip balm is lemongrass and the soap is Lime Basil. This is a family ran business and is a herb farm.  They do everything by hand from seed to store.  They also create oils, vinegars, teas, salves using family recipes that have been developed and refined over the years.

WE had a big ole surprize in the mail this week.  See us girls here in Iowa get the biggest kick out of Frankie and Ernie...and even our Mom laughs her head off when she sees pictures of them in their tighty-whiteys so guess what came in the mail for our own refrigerator.  Yep.....
This is the collage that Mom made for guys...the grandmonsters are gonna get the biggest kick out of this.

Wednesday night Dad went with us out to the fairgrounds and Mom is noticing that even I am enjoying going out there running around in the grass.  I have my boundaries tho and never walk near the gravel or trees.  Of course Mom is walking the Gangsta's all around to wear them out.  She is also practicing Maggie's first week of homework which is to get her attention when she says her name.  Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.  Mom has found out she really likes cheese.  Thanks to Murphy and Stanleys mom for the treats suggestion. We don't have any pet stores around here in lost in the woods Iowa so we will have to improvise.
Come on Mom lets get this show on the road!

After our walks.

And of course our final picture of our big college girl.  Yep, that binkie in your mouth Maggie really shows your ready to school next week...Bahahhahahha
We CAn't HardlEY WAit to show you next weeks things for the MYSTERY BOX!!

  1. We see London, we see France, we see F&E in their underpants! That collage is wonderful and guaranteed to make you smile.

    Don't know if its been suggested, but try the cheese that comes in the squirt can. Just a little dab on the end of the finger should do the trick. Well that is of course, unless the finger gets bit!

    Cute binkie Mag's, butt we think you better leave that home when you go to school.

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  2. I'm super surprised that Maggie Moo doesn't like the Cheesie Bones...but then pugs are super picky when it comes to treats and they LOVE these little bones in the mint and cheese flavors. So happy that Stella has "mature" taste!! LOL!! Anywho...American cheese and rolled into little balls does wonders, too...just buy the stuff that you would throw on a hamburger (cheap is fine) and make lots of little rolled balls for Maggie...that should help.

    Love F&E's collage...Great job Mama Deb!!

    Much Love,
    Mama Mindy & The Slimmer Puggums

  3. Looks like y'all are getting that walking thing down pat. Love the pic of Maggie with her binkie. Have a great week-end. Baby Gussie does not look like a baby so much now. Stella, you are still the "pick of the litter".

    Janice, Snuggles, Sassy, and Dixie

  4. {{{{BLUSH}}}}

    Now Margaret.... this is just a small suggestion... leave the Binky at home.... fur when you return... the other "KIDS" in the class would just beat you up fur it.

    Love the Lip Balm and soap... those will be delightful. Somebuddy is gonna win a MAJOR AWARD prize pressie fur sure.

  5. Mystery box is sounding well cool. No worries we can't enter but we will blog the link for you today and tomorrow. Sounds like a fun adventure you had at the fairgrounds. Cheese is good. Yummy. Maybe I should develop selective hearing big time to get some. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Frankie and Ernie are your pin-up pups! BOL!!! And OMD, Angus has grown up SO much!



    Count me in, I contributed for the raffle yesterday.

  9. Howdy Mates. O M D, we love the photo of you all together!! We can't wait to hear about your training and stuffs and Maggie, just remember, the more you look at your mum the more yummies you will get. Easy peasy.
    Hey guess what mates. Yesterday mum was Op Shopping and outside the shop she saw, in the real furs, a pug!!! His name was Charlie and he was 12 months old and mum thought of you all and she says he was gorgeous and soft and gentle. We weren't jealous at all. Well not much. Well actually we were, cause we didn't see him and were abandoned at home. Anyhoo have a great weekend. Your raffle sounds amazing and we think your mum deserves a big slobbery hug from us. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  15. What great photos! I love how you three are just chillin' in the grass after your walk! I also wanted to wish Maggie good luck in school. I know with a big sis like you Stella, giving her pointers, she will do just fine.
