Yummy Treat!

Mommy and Daddy took me to the dog park on Saturday to play and run after my frisbee. After a few throws I did something they have never seen me do at the doggy park before... I laid down!!!! So, after a bit they decided that I'd had enough of the heat so we left...and Mommy convinced Daddy that I needed a special treat to cool off and we went to Rita's Water-ice. Mommy ordered me my own kid sized, sugar-free, pineapple water-ice! I was so excited! It was so cool and refreshing-but it was just too big for me to finish!

Home Made Treats!

So, remember how I said Mommy has off this week and we are spending some quality girl time together with trips to parks and lots of playing and cuddling?!?! Well, yesterday Mommy baked me homemade biscuits for the first time :) The house smelled so yummy and I couldn't wait till they were done!
First the dough... Then you roll it and cut out bone-shaped biscuits... Then you put them on the cookie tray...
and wait while they cook... Then you let them cool off when they are out of the oven...
Put them in an airtight container and you are all done!
Now for the taste test-
DELICIOUS! mmm...cheese :)
Mommy even wore her special apron to make me my biscuits:

Check this Out!

Hello Everybody! Mommy took me to a different doggy park yesterday to meet up with my cousins, Grayce and Danger. It was loads of fun and Aunt Jamie and Uncle Matt took TONS of AWESOME pictures (that's 'cause they are really good photographers). Go over to their page to see them AND to see my big "Oopsies" while playing with Bo, the Black Lab. Don't worry though, I was fine afterward 'cause I am one hardy little Puggle! So go check it out here!

Fun Morning!

Mommy is off from work this week so we are spending some girl time together! Yesterday we went to Abuela's and had a great time in the back yard. Today we went to my other favorite play area-the Dog Park! And Grandma and Grandpa met us there :) I had tons of fun running and fetching my ball.


I made some new friends too!


And of course made a mess of myself!
Puggle Stockings?!? Nope, it's Mud!

On the ride home I rested...
but was asking to play again as soon as I walked through the door! Much to Mommy's surprise :)

Fast Puggle?

The other day I bragged about being fast, well I wasn't always fast. Here is a video of Grayce the Weim training me with a session of sprints when I was younger (make sure you have your volume on).



See Preston, I wasn't always a fast Puggle. And as you can see we are in fact very much alike (I cry too when I can't keep up, to tell them to wait for me!). You just need a good trainer like Grayce :)

Poor Mr. Frog

This weekend I went to PetSmart and got a new toy. I call him Mr. Frog and he was my new favorite toy. With a squeeker in the tummy and ropes for arms and legs it was bound to be a fun one! But I must've played too rough with Mr. Frog tonight, 'cause now he only has 3 limbs left! This is what he looked like when Mommy and Daddy realized what had happened...





Lucky for me and it was a clean break so he didn't have to check into the hospital for surgery with Dr.Mom.

My first Blog Award!

I got this award from my furiend, Maggie Mae the boxer! She is such a cute girl with a wonderful personality-Thanks Maggie Mae :)



Ok, so now I must tell you seven things that you may not have known about me. Here goes:

1. I can wound a new toy withing 5 minutes of getting it (case and point-I actually JUST did it again)
2. I don't like to wear clothes-I usually just stand on the spot frozen and refuse to move for anything-but I'm VERY slowly getting over this
3. I love the water, but I don't don't like to swim-again, VERY slowly trying to get over this...
4. I LOVE to play indoor fetch and could do it for hours on end
5. I let out big puffs through my mouth when I'm agitated to let Mommy and Daddy know
6. I am an incredibly fast Puggle and everybody is always surprised to see it (I give credit to my cousin Grayce for training me since I was 9 weeks old!)
and finally
7. When another dog scares me I run and hind behind my Mommy and Daddy because deep down I'm just a big softie

And now I will pass this award to 7 of my furiends!

1. My cousins Grayce and Danger for always playing with me!
My Fellow Puggles
2. Bruschi and Ebby because they understand the power of the puggle cuteness and fear to swim
3. Oliver and Jack because we share a love the garden state
4. Preston because he looks like my brother from another mother
and
5. Chewy the cutest shih tzu
6. Jen and her Brown Newfies 'cause they look so fluffy and cuddly
7. BeagleBratz because I share their beagle howl :)

Enjoy & Happy Sunday!

And a Troubmaker was born...

On December, 7th 2008 I was born. I spent my first couple of months living with my doggie mommy and my brothers and sisters. Then I went to live with another family that had a mean husky that picked on me all the time :( Then on Valentine's Day 2009, I found my mommy and daddy (or they found me). They rescued me from the mean husky and brought me to my forever home.

Here are pics of me when Mommy and Daddy picked me up. It was love at first sight!



Mommy and Daddy took me straight to see Aunt Jamie and Grayce the Wiem. We have been inseparable ever since.


I can't imagine why they ever started calling me "troublemaker", I have always been a perfect angel.


OK - maybe not all the time, but who can get mad at this face:

What A Weekend!

This weekend was so much fun! Saturday day I went to Pakim Pond with Mommy, Daddy, Grandma and Grandpa. It's a place with a big lake, lots of trails to walk in and lots of grills and tables to barbecue at. I hadn't been there since I was a puppy and I was very excited to fetch sticks from the lake!

Next up was a long walk through some trails where I led the pack, sniffed everything that could be sniffed and hopped through some bushes. We got a little lost and the walk was longer than we had planned so Daddy carried me for a bit because I got tired. He's the best!
Then we had a barbecue and I enjoyed my very own hot dog and a little hamburger for being such a trooper! On the way home I was exhausted and slept the whole way!

Back home Mommy and Daddy said I had to rest to gear up for my night activity. So I was a good girl and listened and then went to see my cousins at Ironwood :) With the help of Daddy I participated in some night swimming with Grayce and the other doggies that were there!
Then on Sunday we went over to Abuela's house and enjoyed some outside activities along with some yummy food again! I even swam by myself for the very first time (then quickly looked for the way out, but it's a start!) and played lots of frisbee with Daddy! Check me out:

Nice Catch!

Puggle Security?

Daddy travels a lot for work, so they thought it would be best if they get a doggy that could keep mommy company and of course "pawtect" her. So of course they picked me...

Don't let this pretty face fool you-

I can be quite ferocious!

Though sometimes I do sleep on the job...

Summer fun @ Abuela's



Sundays in the summers are the best. I get to go to my Abuela's (mommy's mom) house and she has a nice big fenced in yard. Daddy will throw me the Frisbee and I'll do my best to catch it.


Then when I get thirsty, I have the biggest water bowl I have ever seen to drink out of! I can even stand in it if I want.
I'm not completely sure about this whole swimming thing. Mommy and Daddy bought me a life jacket which I'm told is supposed to keep me from sinking, but when they put me in the pool I just paddle as fast as I can to the side so I can get out. I'll leave the swimming for them and stick to my gigantic water bowl.

All this playing makes me tired!
