Why No Christmas Cards Slimmer Pugs & Purrs???

Hi friends!
Mama Mindy at the computer to explain our change of plans this Christmas season. My pugs and purrs are spoiled everyday. Most of you pawrents in Blogville have similar spoiled rotten babies.  My pugs do not like to dress up...except for wearing their Auntie Melissy Sweaters or their coats...but Heavens No! they do not like dressing up AND taking pictures.  I have taken their feelings into consideration and since I have not been around much due to my first teaching internship soon to be followed by another teaching internship this Winter/Spring 2015, I decided to give them a break.  Yes, I wanted to get cards out to all of their furiends, especially the girl and boy friends.  I will have them send pawsonal e-mails to their belove-eds...however, the money and time saved from this venture will go toward writing this post and helping others without their forever family. 

Those of you who have followed our blog for any amount of time probably know of our great friendship and love to Ms. Chrystal of Daily Dose of Dogs (aka Cats with Your Coffee).  She has a lot of kitties looking for their forever home, and it is my mission to use the money that was saved from making and sending cards to send the Winnie's Wishers a Merry Christmas gift.

If you do not know of Daily Dose, then you must click HERE and visit her lovely blog.

If you would also like to donate an item to the kitties looking for a forever home, click HERE for a link to the Winnie's Wish Amazon Wishlist.  If you have Amazon Prime (which I just adore), it will get the gifts to Chrystal in Illinois quick.

If you would like to give the best gift of all and provide a kitty with a home, won't you consider Sugar Cookie? Sienna? Nisha?  There are so many wonderful cats looking for pawsome homes. Anybody reading this blog is surely a candidate.

 Are you a baby-spoiler?  That is the exact person these kitties need. :)

BTW:  I have visited Chrystal at her rescue. It is an actual place that exists. I have seen my bricks in the Winnie's Wish Walkway in the skin or fur as the fur-kids would call it. What she does is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!  Literally, she runs a kennel, not for her financial gain, but to pay most of the costs of her rescue work.  All money donated to the rescue goes directly to the animals.  I have met her and she is a jeans and t-shirt type of gal.  I would trust this woman with my pugs and purrs. She is simply fabulous! In fact, I am a Winnie's Wish Adopter.  Look at my header and three of those kitties are Winnie's Wishers...those would be Luna, Percy, and Golden. They are doll babies that I adore and would not have in my life if it wasn't for Chrystal.

So...instead of cards...know that we wish y'all a "Merry Christmas" and "A Healthy and Happy New Year!!"  Try to spread some love with rescues you love or try Winnie's Wish.  Whenever I have extra money, I think of Winnie's Wish.  Won't you consider Winnie's Wish this Christmas or into the New Year?!?

There is not much more I can say to get you to visit this wonderful rescue, but I hope you will at least Facebook share the stories if you do nothing more.  These kitties need wonderful homes. Please help spread the word.

God Bless and Much Love,
Mama Mindy :)

Hi furiends!
Wesa been hitting the books hard and sacrificing much cuddle times with oursa mama...and it was successful. Oursa mama has officially been passed onto Block 3, the student teaching block and last semester of teaching school, and has lost the title of "intern" and is now a "student teacher."

George Pooh's 9th birthday!

Hi everyone!
Today is a special day that even a bunch of schoolwork and working with kiddos will not interrupt.  Today is my kiddo's birthday.  Georgie Pooh Bear is 9 years old.  Today my mom and George's co-mama, Mama CJ will be bringing George home his birthday lunch...some chicken nuggies to share with his siblings.  Tonight, when I get home, it is off to DQ for a pup cup and a small treat for each of the mamas.  Sometime today he will get his new eggies (egg-shaped squeaky toys) and a new lambie (a teddy bear) that's just his size.

Love my security mans!  He gives the best kisses and hugs!
Much Love,
Mama Mindy

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 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
