Porky & Brownie are confirmed to fly home this Friday.  Yeah!  It’s been a month since I saw my boys and I can’t wait to hug them, nap together, and hang out.  We will go to dog park and take some pictures so I can finally post an updated blog post and new pictures.  Hope they have an easy flight back.  I always get nervous.

Puggies in San Diego

October 13th, 2008 at 9:41 pm

Hi Everydoggy. After Hurricane Ike, I am just swamped. Since I have a rather long (almost 3 weeks) business trip coming up, I shipped the Pugs to San Diego to live with my Mom. I am always paranoid when I leave them at the doggy hotel…and they always end up with something weird afterwards (Porky had diarrhea and stomach problems for a while and Brownie had mange twice). It’s not always the pet hotel’s fault. It’s hard to get the same kind of care and attention when they are inside of a little room all day. The doggy day care stuff is fun but at $20-30/day, per dog, it’s really expensive. Porky loves the doggy day care but Brownie doesn’t really like to play for a long period of time. It’s actual cheaper for me to ship them to my parents in San Diego and they always transition very well. Grandma has been \warned to stick with 1-2 treats per day and strict feeding guidelines. Both Pugs always come back from their visit with Grandma 5-10lbs heavier, which is not good. It takes me a long time to get them back to there normal weight of 20-23lbs (still overweight but acceptable). Here is a picture of Brownie..he’s so cute. Talk to everydoggy in 3 weeks!

Special 15% OFF Buddy Belts Dog Harnesses!

October 11th, 2008 at 1:10 am

Buddy Belt

The Buddy Belt dog harness saved Porky & Brownie’s necks!   Poor Porky’s neck was always choking him and sometimes when he got excited, he would just puke because he could not breathe.  Both Pugs are always too overly anxious and excited, and pulling like crazy on the leads…I was seriously concerned with all the choking, coughing, and occasional puking.  I have bought countless harnesses and none of them gave me the control I wanted and reduced the stress on their little necks.  When ever we are walking and a car comes by or just another walker, both Pugs abruptly jilt and pull, sometimes so strong that I trip and fall.  For anyone that has or has had Pugs (or any flat nosed dog), you know exactly what I am talking about.  When I learned about Buddy Belts, I was very skeptical but now after over one year of using Buddy Belts dog harnesses for both boys, I am 100% sold on this product.  It’s very easy to put on…just lay the Buddy Belt on the ground, walk their front paws into the holes (like putting on a bra!), and then buckle like a belt on top of their backs.  Since it is strapped to their front legs, the stress is significantly reduced compared to a traditional harness or collar.  There’s plenty of buckle holes which is nice since Pugs do like to grow chunky.  This is the only harness the boys have been able to actually use for this long!  They even sleep in their Buddy Belts.  The leather is nice and worn in so it now contours to their body and hugs them like a bra.  We love the Buddy Belts!  It’s a blessing and life saver for the small dogs!

FunnyFur.com carries the entire collection of Buddy Belts dog harness and accessories….and guarantees the lowest price.  Pugs usually wear size 6 which starts at $73.90 for the regular colors and a little bit more for the limited and fancy colors.  These are the lowest price I have ever seen them for.  For a limited time only, FunnyFur.com is offering a 15% OFF Buddy Belts products so that should help.  Just enter promo code “IHEARTPUGS” at Check Out.  Tell them Porky & Brownie sent you!

Lazy Puggies: Rise & Shine

September 1st, 2008 at 11:32 pm

It’s been a bit busy lately but here is a cute quick pic I snapped with my Blackberry.  It doesn’t take good pictures but I thought it was still cute.  Porky and Brownie usually sleep on different sides of our bed but lately, Porky has been really sweet…he gets up in the middle of the night or early morning and snuggles with Brownie.  And then Brownie will sleep on him.  Due to all the bed dominations (yes, they pee and lift on every dog bed they get), we are always washing or getting them new beds so in the interim, I bought a few of these soft faux lambswool blankets and just folded them into Brownie’s crate.  He loves it!  He just melts in and snoozes.  I am going to get them another car bed for Christmas since they love their Woodie Car Bed so much.

We LOVE the Reliant Dog Show!

August 9th, 2008 at 9:55 pm

The Reliant Dog Show in Houston was late last month…we are a little behind on the posting. It’s been one thing after another so unfortunately, we have way too many photos and not enough time to blog. Since I am behind, I will stick to the most recent event. Porky & Brownie had a blast at the Reliant Dog Show…this was our second time attending and even more exciting, we had a booth there for FunnyFur.com so the boys got to go hang out everyday for 4 days. We saw so many small dogs do neat tricks…it’s really inspirational. It was also great fun to see our friends from Pug Hearts – Houston’s Pug Rescue. Cindy and the wonderful volunteers have rescued 229 Pugs since they started in February 2007!

Our booth was across from the Pittbull Rescue so the boys got to meet some new friends…I didn’t have my camera handy…darn!

Here’s the booth.

Here’s Brownie hanging out in the aisle, greeting customers. :)

Brownie Waiting For Treats

Brownie had a lot of admirers at the show…he got more love than his brother. I think it’s just because he was wearing brighter colors. He was wearing his Marvel Hulk Hoodie and Captain America Shield Backpack.

BeBe, our Chihuahua Spokesdoggy was there, too. She was carried at all times since she is only 3 lbs and gets stepped on quite a bit. Since she is tiny, we have to be careful because people really want to kidnap her…she is the most outgoing little Chihuahua. She has no idea how tiny she is. BeBe was wearing her Hulk Hoodie, too. She is kind of kissing Porky in this picture…I think. Brownie does not seem to want to play. He is super lazy these days and just wants to nap.

Porky’s BFF Tanner came by to say hi and his Mommy bought him a new Rambo Army Cammo Dog Lead and Captain America Doggy Backpack to match Brownie…or her very blue shoes. The blue shoes really stand out with the Captain America backpacks. That’s his new Moss Green color Buddy Belt Dog Harness…we really want to get two new colors for the boys…they have had their black ones forever and it’s getting a little boring. This harness works the best for Pugs and last forever.

I was trying to get a picture of the boys all playing together but they kept moving. Erika, Tanner’s Mom, tried to round them up with no luck.

So of course I had to bust out the treaties…all eyes are now on me!

I think Porky wants a backpack…soon. Brownie usually gets all the new toys and clothes because he likes dressing up and loves plush toys. He just goes ga-ga for toys and fruits. Everyone thinks that Brownie wants to be a vegetarian. Porky just has one love…FOOD…any and all food, no discrimination.

More pictures of Tanner. He is so handsome! I almost got a Boston Terrier or Bulldog but then I saw Brownie and could not resist his chocolate charm.

Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures! We had a ball and it tired all of us out!
