Mayor Madi has asked us to write about our loves in our life, our first, worst, or bestest date so we faught and faught and we three discussed it and here is our story with a different twist.  This story is for our Mom, our first real love.

My girls said Isa could tell it cos I ooze charm..well they actually said bull..but I thought charm sounded betters.

Once upon a time there was a little girl pug who lived in a crappy, dingy, dirty place in Iowa.  She lived there with lots of other dogs and their lives were sad.  One night this lady came to the place and the little pug looked up into her face and saw tears and sadness.  The little pug didn't know what to think because no one had ever looked at her that way, and then she felt herself being lifted out of the pen and held against that lady's heart. The little pug knew right then and there all her prayers had come true and later the lady whispered to her quietly so no one else could here, I am taking you to your forever home and I am giving you the special name of Stella Rose.  The lady took off her tag that said #129 and threw it in the yard as we were walking away.  That is how Stella Rose found out what real love was.

Once upon a time there was another little girl pug who also lived in a crappy, dingy, dirty place in Missouri. She lived there with her siblings and momma.  She liked being wif her brothers and sisters but she heard one day someone say that a person called a broker was coming to get them. She didn't understand what was going on at all, and she was very upset when they took her Momma away from them.  Later when she was being examined with the rest of her sibs the broker said hers was a throw away worth only a nickel cos she had scratched up eyeballs.  So they put her in her own cage faraway from her family.  She would haf to grow up to be just another breeder.  Magically the breeder received a phone call from another breeder in Iowa and told her about a family who takes throw away puppies from her icky place.  WELL hers didn't say icky cos hers is stoopid and thinks its nice.  So the Missouri breeder who was greedy said I won't give the puppy who is only worth a nickel away for free.  The Iowa breeder drove down and got her and called this lady and man.  The little girl pug didn't know what was happening was a lot in one day, first her brothers and sisters are gone, then her momma, then she gets her own cage and now she is in a car driving at nighttime.  Finally they stop and she sees a man and lady.  They have a warm blanket that they put around the little girl and the man holds and hugs her, and then he hands her to the lady.  The lady looks at her little black face and little fawn body and gives her a kiss on her stinky nose and that is how Margaret Mae found out what real love was.

AND now the most important story of all....the story of a little boy pug!  ME!!!  Once upon a time there was a little boy pug who lived in the same crappy, dingy, dirty place in Iowa that Stella Rose had lived.  In fact this little boy had the same momma that Stellie had.  One day that breeder called this lady and said to come see her new pug babies and that lady said NO she couldn't.  The lady hung up the phone and sat in the chair and cried (hers told me this later when hers was giving me a baf) and cried and finally the man said, "oh lets just go see them, " and the lady toles me later that she thought maybe there would be a little boy that needed her and she should name him Angus McConnell, but hers didn' t tell the man that.  It was a secret.  So they got to the icky, stinky, place and there were three little puppies sitting in the back of a truck.  It was April so it was nice and warm outside.  One little pug was black and the other two was fawn.  Two boys and one girl.  The first thing they noticed about one little tiny boy is his eyes were scary bad.  The lady picked him up and it broke her heart into thousands of pieces cos hers thought he couldn't survive in that kind of pain.  The lady said if I pay for you to take him to the vet tomorrow and if the vet says he is not suffering he can come home and live wif us.  I didn't really understand what was going on cos i was to little.  I just remember that lady whispering in my ear that she loved me no matter what!  So the next day I went to see a good vet and the good vet called the lady and said He is just fine but his eyes will always be bad.  The next day when I wokes up here comes that lady again and hers grabbed me up and squeezed me and kissed my stinky face and nose and whispered again to me, HI ANGUS MCCONNELL.  Hers put me in her car and we drove away and that is how I, Angus McConnell found out what real love was.

Oh, remember my brother and sister, well my Momma talked to a rescue in Tennessee and they all worked together and before long we helped transport them to another transporter and they made it to Tenn.  They now have their own forever homes, that is how they found out what real love was.
So fank you Mayor Madi for giving us the chance to remember our first real love.  Hers is our Momma and wesa we will love forever and ever. She says we are her blessings.

Stella Rose, Margaret Mae and Angus McConnell


  1. The three of you were rescued because of love and in return you give your peeps love and that is the best thing ever. Epic win all round we say and forget all the horrid things that were in the past and enjoy all the good ones that are here now and still to come. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Thanks for sharing your story with us, we loved it! You bebes are all so lucky.

    Miss Scarlet was found wandering the streets of Louisiana, underweight and with heartworm. I had been searching for a pug through our local rescues and shelter. One day I took a chance and called a rescue that a friend recommended, and by a miracle, they had just found out about my little Love. She told me she had one big eye and one little eye, would I still be interested? Of course I said absolutely, in fact, even more so. The following week, Scarlet got on a big plane and flew up to Rhode Island. I met her at the airport and it was love at first site. She rescued my poor broken heart, thank God. A month early my beloved Nicki (yellow lab) had gone to the Bridge and Scarlet knew just how to fill that space with her silly antics and snuggles.

Many thanks to that Lady for kissing your nose, for the tears she cried for you and for throwing the tag away what said #129. Please give that Lady a big hug from me.
