POTP for France.  We hold you close in our prayers for all the families and friends affected by this tragedy.

Yay its almost Saturday, that means that Ms. Piper will be coming over to play wif us, and we will be exhausted when she leaves.  She usually has a standing Saturday play date at our house.  She likes us but we finks SHE likes cats better,  she keeps asking our mom is Cotton is bigger, we think bigger is code word for "when I can take her home"   Mom always says, "not yet."
If you look real close you will see the old man in the tree.  That is what we call him.  Sometimes he comes down from the clouds above and just watches from the tree trunk.  We like him....we think.  Its always a special day when we spot him.
This is Cotton checking out our toy box.  We tried to tell her that she has her own cat toy box, but she does not care. 
 Why should she?  She already has the run of the whole house, upstairs and downstairs, the porch and the outside.  Us three pugs have NEVER been upstairs and of course we stay with the walls of Alcatraz.  She is only 4 months old.  How can this be fair?
The guard tower called and there is suspicious activity going on outside the walls of the prison.  Where are you Cotton?
Dads buddy.
Then we have this guy that chatters down from his perch and tells us off everyday.  I tell you friends life in Iowa is hard for us 3 little pugs.

  1. OMD, you guys are being SERIOUSLY mistreated. OUR kitty sister has a room where we aren't allowed, but WE have a room she can't go in too, so it's fair. I think you should make a jail break and come to Texas!

  2. it#s great that he visits you from time to time :o) the mama first thought the squirrel isn't a real one... butt it is!!! how beautiful... ummm... I mean tasty :o)

    Crikey Stella, your home is being subtly invaded... then again, I have to say, you are providing a welcoming environment for those with difference - and that is no bad thing really! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  12. When we lived with cats they had special privileges too, it wasn't fair. Sigh!

  13. We need to stage a protest - we don't get to go upstairs either. All the little bipeds do - something's just not right about that!!!

  15. We could take care of that squirrel so he doesn't mess with you any more. Just let us know.

  21. Cotton needs to be taken down a notch! Dogs rule!

  22. I love Dad's buddy, I need to get his picture!

  23. You pups sure have a tough life. We bet you had a great visit with Piper.

  24. That sounds like pug abuse ... we have called the authorities!

    Love Zoe, Peyton, Webster, Liberty, Whitney & Jaxzyn

  25. We have gray squirrels, one who I think is an albino not a white squirrel and just a few black squirrels but is your squirrel a red one? You dogs need to get control of the situation ~ things are just running amuck with squirrels and kittens! You need to break out of Alcatraz.
    Thanks for being a friend

    So much excitement at your house.
