Pug Mail!

Lola Pug and I took a little break from blogging to deal with a few medical issues that came our way, but I am pleased to report that the little monkey came through everything with great spirit and we’re finally back and excited to share our continuing adventures and stories.

On the medical side, LP is fine. She’s a bit of a marvel, as she has been diagnosed with a few unlikely, but thankfully likely-not-life-shortening conditions, as well as some hopefully resolved dental issues, but all is well once again in our world.

After a few months of worry, it was a great surprise to find a package in our mailbox this week!

Lola Pug always knows when a piece of mail is for her, and she dove down to sniff out who it came from and what it might contain….


Sometimes my human hands come in handy, so I obliged….


It’s always lovely when cards come properly addressed. So many people just don’t understand how to do this anymore.


The Pug seemed to be slightly apprehensive about the contents of the letter…


…it was a card and a gift from Angel Payton’s people!


The card said that this was a very special gift from Payton’s own personal collection. Now Payton meant the WORLD to her Mum and Dad, and even though Lola and Payton never met, we feel they are soul sisters, so when something comes to us from her memorial collection, we know it’s something to cherish and love dearly.


…and to laugh our collective human butts off at.

My darling Lola Pug, you do, indeed, have issues. So many issues. As does your mama.

Thank you, Payton’s people, for sending us such a special gift and memory from your wee one’s life, and thank you for the laughs. Well. I thank you. Lola might need a bit more time to come around to the awesomeness of this gift.

Laughter really is the best medicine.

At least it is for pug mamas!

Present from Payton

Pugs aren’t typically cheated in the toy department, and most well-loved pugs have as many oodles of toys as their family finances will allow.

When we met up with Payton’s people, Christy and Tim, we left with a little gift from them for Lola Pug. Payton had a collection of awesome toys, some of which are now being given in memory to her pug friends across North America.

Lola Pug LOVES gifts, so she was very eager to see what was waiting for her…


…witness her exceptional bag-diving technique, as taught to her by her little angel-friend, Rocco….


With the first victim already freed from the bag, (Homer the Lobster, in the background – he didn’t stand a chance against The Pug, and he will be snacked on during many play times to come), Lola went in for the second gift….


This gift was originally intended as a Christmas gift to Lola Pug, but apparently Payton became enamoured of it, and started to gnaw on a flipper, so another (equally awesome) stuffy took it’s place.

But here was the original gift, in all it’s glory.

Payton’s flipper was immediately identified by The Pug…


…and after a lengthy sniff, and what I like to think was a little puggie thank you to her angel friend…


…Lola Pug trounced the heck out of her new Pufferfish toy…


…which is pretty much as big of a “thank you” as pugs give, I think.

So to Christy and Tim – thank you from Lola Pug and her people for such a thoughtful gift.

Many, many frantic games of “Kill the Pufferfish” will be played in the time to come.
