Christmas in July--Pugs for Purrs

Hi friends!
My friend Chrystal at Daily Dose is almost finished with her 3rd cat house, and I would like for us in the blogosphere to buy her new room some housewarming gifts.

How are we going to do that?

 I have some fabulous gently used Danbury Mint pug items that I would like to start shipping out and getting new homes. As you all know, my mom, Mama CJ, and I will be moving into a new house hopefully sometime this Fall and it will be smaller and have less storage space.

I will keep the items at a fixed price including shipping, and some of these items could easily have $15-20 shipping costs attached, so please keep that in mind (i.e. the price I have typed includes shipping costs). I understand many get paid later this week or at the beginning of the month, so the first person to claim an item (i.e. leave a post, an e-mail address, and a comment with the number and the price you will donate at or above the asking price) will win the item and I will mark the item in bold red lettering with the word SOLD next to it. 

I will start shipping out on Monday, July 6th due to the 4th of July holiday and it will give me time to get the items ready for shipping.

Please share with all pug loving and cat loving friends.

Item #1- Pug Basket $40
Length: 7.25"
Width: 5.5"
Height: 7"

Item #2- Pug Jingle Bells $40

Length:  8.5"
Width: 5"
Height: 6"

Item #3- Pug Sleigh  $50 (lights up)

Length: 12"
Width: 4"
Height: 5.5"

Item #4- Pug Train Station $100 (lights up and train moves around the scene)

Height: 8" (top of hat on snowman)

Item #5- Pug Dog House $100 (lights up)

Length: 11"
Width: 6"

God Bless,
Mama Mindy & The Slimmer Pugs and Purrs

P.S. Please e-mail me at pugsandpurrsATgmailDOTcom so I can tell you how to pay for your item. I have an Amazon Prime Membership and I would like to buy a bunch of gifts from all of us for the new cat room using Chrystal's Wish-List and allow for free and quick shipping of our gifts to her cat rescue in Illinois. I promise to re-post Chrystal's post once she gets our gifts.

I Suffered!!: An original TRUE story by Lily Jayne Slimmer

Hi friends!
Today, I was tragically driven to the Augusta Animal Clinic, where I was then put under anesthetic (you know...the stuff that makes you go BONK!).  I had a tooth removed that had TWO...count em'...One...Two roots!! To top that all off, they removed my hanging beauty mark on my elbow, clipped my front and back nails, and gave me a butt-icure.  I have truly suffered today.
Feel sorry for me.

I could not give you a current picture...it would have been TOO embarrassing!!

Your furiend,
Lily Jayne ((tramatized and loopy from the anesthetic))

Mama's Graduation Photo & Pray for Mama (Good News...Not Bad)

Hi friends!
Our mama graduated with her B.S.E. in Elementary Education (K-6) on Saturday, May 16th, 2015.  Wesa so prouds of her...just look at her beaming in the picture below.

Anywhos...this Wednesday mama has a super-dee-duper important interview for a job at her elementary school alma mater, Ewalt Elementary (Go Greyhounds!).  She is being interviewed for a 2nd grade teaching position.  To say that oursa mama wants this position more than anything right now would be an understatement.  She has been preparing documents to share at the interview and her and her friend Megan are helping each other out.  Mama is helping her friend study to pass her teaching content exams for licensure and mama (who already passed those tests) is being prepped for her interview.  Mama and her friend will meet on Tuesday so that she is prepped for her interview on Wednesday at 10am.

Please pray that God wants her in this position and works it towards her favor.  There are probably many applicants as our state is low in education funding for teachers right now.

God Bless and Much Luvums,
The Slimmer Puggums
(Whosa are enjoying mama being homes although she is back to work as a cashier at Wally-mart)

Thursday, May 19th, 2015 WAS Toby Moses's 9th birthday!!

Hi friends!
I have been a naughty mama.  The truth is...I had trouble finding the camera cord to hook up to the computer to download pictures of my baby and his new Bummlie, Emmitt the Clown, made by Melissa Langer from the blog Life is Art, Art is Life that he received from his girlfriend, the sweetest soul we know, Tweedles.

Here he is talking to his Emmitt Bummlie (you can read if you want...very G-rated):

Toby:  Hi Bummlie!  I am Toby Moses.  What is your name?
Bummlie:  Hi Toby Moses! My name is Emmitt.

Toby: You remind me of a friend I had in Colorado named Emmitt....hmm....

Toby Moses:  Do you mind Mother?  I am talkin' to Emmitt about the cool stuff we could do together...like take a morning nap, which you are so rudely interrupting with the flashy beast.

Toby Moses:  Awww....I love ya' mama and couldn't stay mad at you long.
Kisses to My Tweedles!! (My Garden Fairy Woodland Princess)
Thank you Tweedles for making my little man's day super fun and sweet.  He did get chicken nuggets and will get some icy-creams tonight once his daddy (my dad) comes home.

Much Love,
Mama Mindy & Toby Moses, too

Mama is graduating Saturday, May 16th!!

Hi furiends!
Wesa been waiting for mama's final score to come in...the one on her big ol' Teacher Work Sample (TWS) and she passed!!  Mama is going to graduate this Saturday in cap and gown.  The school that she went to was distance education meaning that they had many campuses around the state, but a main campus elsewheres. Anywho...she will be traveling an hour away to go to the graduation.  Shesa had a very bad struggle with her depression and anxiety this semester, but she read your blogs and that helped bunches! So...thank you for being blessings from God to our mama.  This was a hard self-battle, but she won out in the end and is graduating with honors.  Right now, the state of Kansas is battling the governor on his removing education funding and trying something that is called block-funding, which is much less than the schools need to run efficiently and effectively.  Jobs are really limited right now...but are to pick up by the end of the month, June, and even August. Mama hasn't found a job yet, but she will do her best to find one.  It is her belief that the right place will come along and she will love it wherever she gets placed.  Her preference is USD 259 or Wichita, KS, the largest city in Kansas located 20 minutes away from our hometown.  Her next preference are schools in the Butler County area, wheresa our hometown is located. 

Wesa just wanted to let you share a bit in our happiness and proudness of our mama.  BTW--She is making up for lost time by snuggling with us a lot...but she has a way to go to make up for the loss. Do not worry furiends, wesa will get our rubbins and luvins made up and doubled by the end of summer...that is our current plan anyways.

Wesa loves, loves, loves you all and hope your May is a happy one like ours is for us'uns!!

Much Luvums,
The Slimmer Puggums

Auction for Da Weenies of Florida's Sister-in-the-skin, Shelly

Hi all of our wonderful friends! 
If you are reading this, then you have not deleted us from your blog roll. Gracias!
Mama only has two more weeks of student teaching left and boy is she wiped out.
Wesa do the best we can to keep her in good spirits and eye boogers and fur all over her clothes. :)
Those third graders need to know that shesa oursa mama, not theirs, after all. Hehehehehe!
Anywhos!  Mama and us'uns have decided that any auction for Da Weenies and their fur and skin family is an auction we want to be a part of...so the mama has donated some jewelry pieces for the upcoming auction--gently used of course, free shipping for the U.S.  The auction begins, Tuesday, April 28th, and runs past Mother's Day (May 10th) all the way to Tuesday, May 12th.  Please visit the auction. 

After the auction is over, we will hopefully get mama to post about her student teaching and what the future holds for her.  See you in a few weeks! BTW--Do you like our header? Ann of Zoolatry made it...and wesa can bet that she has donated not only her talent to providing the badge above for the auction, but she will probably also have an item to bid on where she can make you something fabulous for your blog.

Tah Tah For Now!
Your furiends,
The Slimmer Pugs & Purrs
