A Special Post: Gracie Lynn's Peace Rose is Blooming

Hi furiends!
Our girl, Gracie Lynn, left us back in October 2013 after a routine dental.  We were and still are heartbroken, but great friends have helped us to heal and of course, our belief in a God and a Savior and an eternal existence.

Thanks to the White Dog Army's generous, heartfelt gift, we planted a Peace Rose to memorialize our dear girl.

Here are the first blooms of this delightful rose plant that brings us much joy and happiness as we daily remember our baby girl.

I just had to share and today I was off from Wal-Mart (tomorrow is my last day at Wal-Mart) and had to post these photos.

Much Love,
Mama Mindy

In for a big change

Hi Blogville!
Mama Mindy here.  Sorry I have not posted enough for the pugs or for you this past year.  I'm going to let it out now...that probably will not be changing anytime soon.

This Fall, I will not be teaching a college course or working for Wal-Mart part-time. My last day for working at Wal-Mart is August 1st.

August 6th is the start of my year of student teaching.  I will be a full-time intern the first semester and a full-time intern/student teacher the second semester.  I am assigned to a wonderful Kindergarten teacher (from what I have heard from my advisor and other staff members associated with the elementary school) for the Fall 2014 portion of the school year and I do so hope that we get along.  I will not be able to post much due to this being a public blog and my time being limited. 

I hope to still read the blogs daily, but I may not have the time or energy to comment.

This year will be hard on the pugs as they have usually had someone home most of the time due to scheduling.  Not so this year. Pray for them to be healthy and happy and for them and I to enjoy the minutes or hours or days we do get to spend together.

The only days I have will be Saturday and Sunday and I will be using those for Mental Health Days, spiritual enrichment, and getting any work done to be a GREAT intern/student teacher. 

This is my course and I'm not sure how far it will take me away from Blogville in the future.  Just know that the pugs and I love you all very much and wish you much love and guidance in your future.

A New Chapter Begins with the Hope of Returning to our good furiends.

Much Love,
Mama Mindy

June Chewy Treat Review--NutriSource Pure Vita Freeze Dried Sweet Potato Treats

Hi all our blogging furiends!

Itsa been "ruffs" getting oursa mamas to blog lately as she isa trying to gets prepared for hersa student teaching year and isa working weirds hours at her Wally World jobs.  Anywhos...

Mama had Mr. Andrew from Chewy.com send us some treats this month...that were....((GASP)) HEALTHY!!

At first, only three out of four of us'uns were interested in the treats.  I, Mimers, am a bit picky...and I had the other "taste testers" prove to me that the treats were lip-smackin' goods. 

In the end, wesa all liked the Sweet Potato Treats.

Information about the treats:
According to the packaging, The treats are a "Natural Wholesome Sweet Potato Freeze Dried into a Healthy Nutritious Reward your Dog will Love."  Mama likes that theysa made in the U.S.A.  The bag was 3 oz...which doesn't sound like much'ums...but wesa have beens eating on thems most of the month and there is wells over half a bag left for oursa dietary pleasure.

So...whatsa does all this means?  Yousa need to get yousa some healthy, yummy treats from Mr. Chewy...and please consider'ums the NutriSource Pure Vita treats, especiallys.

Much Luvums,
The Slimmer Puggums
George, Toby, Lily, & Mimi

Special Delivery--Mr. Chewy May Review--HALO Liv-a-Littles

Hi furiends!
Mr. Chewy sent us out our May product to review, and boy are we happy with it.

Halo Liv-A-Littles 100% Pure Beef Protein Treats

Here is some information from the company itself on the treats:

"Nourishment is more than food on a plate, It's a commitment you make to your animal companion, a commitment born of love and enacted day after day. A commitment visible in the food you serve, in the products you use to groom, in each stroke and every hug."
"LIV-A-LITTLES® Beef Protein Treats let you reward your pet with the taste and benefits of a high-protein snack. They can be given whole or easily crumbled and added to food as a tasty incentive at mealtime."
Freeze-dried beef

Let our pictures with the product tell you how we felt about the treats:


Lily:  Another Treat.....PLEASE!!

George:  Why are you not handing out treats mama?  Lily did say "PLEASE!!"

Toby Moses:  Mama...open these treats, NOW. Don't make me go all BOSS MANS on you!!
Yes, the puggies enjoyed the treats.  The treats are for cats and dogs...but the cats have very sensitive digestives and although Luna meows her head off asking for one, I am a little apprehensive for I really don't know how her stomach will handle it and I would hate for her to reject the treat and include her breakfast in the mix.

Much Love,
Mama Mindy :)
