Bailey & Dory Plan a Getaway!



Spring is finally here!

Mr. Bailey & Miss Dory decided to take some time together
 to plan a spring getaway


I stopped by the travel agency
 and got some brochures for us to look at

I would love to go just about anywhere with you Dory
 as long as there is no snow!

I think we both agree!
 A tropical vacation would be so much fun!


I can't wait!
 Just the two of us relaxing in the warm sun!

Hey! Did you hear a noise?

Ribbons on the Wall


Most of you know that Mom's hobby is doing 
Obedience and Rally Training with us pugs
Over the years there have been many ribbons won 
and she has them on display in the bedroom.

This wall remembers Mom's first two pugs
 to earn obedience titles



McKenzie earned her Companion Dog Title in 2000
And Char Shu earned the same title in 2002

Then there is the two cork boards for our ribbons

The upper left are Bailey's, the upper right are Hazel's


The lower left are Angel Greta's ribbons 
and mine are on the lower right

Several months ago Mom bought a shadow box to display Angel Greta's placement and title ribbons 

It was the first project she worked on when she retired



Mom was trying to figure out how to arrange them
but it really needed something to make it "Greta's"

So she went to the Hobby Lobby

 to find a proper background


Here is the finished project 
complete with pink background!

The View from My Window

 I showed you my favorite look out window



Now that mom is home all the time I can keep watch all day and enjoy the afternoon sun (when there is some)!


Yep! It is a great view!

It is hard to believe that only two weeks ago
we had all this snow

I was in my look out spot and saw we had a visitor


Can you see him??


It's Mr Pheasant


Looking for something to eat in the snow

Now the snow is gone and it has been spring like weather!
I hope it stays around

Our Bed Ramp

Some of you were wondering
 just where Hazel & I were cuddling yesterday


this is the ramp that our Dad built about 5 yrs ago
 to help us all get on and off the big bed

He put safety railing and matching carpet


When Mom realized that Hazel
 was sometimes sleeping at the top of the ramp


 she put a dog bed there
 so Hazel would be more comfortable




Now when we go to bed at night, 
Hazel gets in her bed at the top of the ramp
Then later she usually moves to the big bed
 and sleeps by Mom's feet

#ChewyInfluencer 30 Day Challenge Wrap Up


Last month Miss Natalie at Chewy.com
 asked if we would like to do a 30 day challenge with

Rachael Ray Peak Natural Northern Woodlands Recipe

 with Turkey, Duck & Quail Dry Dog Food



A big bag of food showed up lickity split at the PugRanch



I have been happy to eat this food


Why are you making me wait for my breakfast Mom???


As you can see - I dive right in!

So here are our final thoughts on  

Rachael Ray Peak Natural Northern Woodlands Recipe

 with Turkey, Duck & Quail Dry Dog Food


Transition to this food went very well, no digestive problems at all.

Hazel started the challenge with me, but started butt scooting a lot so mom put her back on our normal kibble. 
She still occasionally scoots so it may or may not have been the kibble.
 It is grain free so not sure what might have been the cause. 

My furs have stayed shiny and soft

My poops have been consistently solid

As we mentioned in post #2 we were somewhat disappointed that the duck and quail were low on the ingredient list. 

This food is priced lower than what we would consider "premium" dog food so would be more affordable than what we have been buying. 

The big question
Would we consider getting more of this food??

 Although I have done real well eating this food
 the answer would be no.

It is easier for Mom if we all eat the same thing and 
it lacks one ingredient that Mom has found to be very beneficial, especially for Mr Bailey - Pumpkin.
He tends to have a sensitive tummy at times and finding a good kibble with pumpkin has been great for him. 

We want to thank Miss Natalie and Chewy.com for giving us the opportunity to test this food.

We love Chewy.com were you can find great prices, super fast shipping and the customer service is the best of any company we have ever dealt with!

We Met a Cat And We Liked it!


OMD! Furiends!
We met a kitty in the furs for the very first time!

The other night we went outside
 to do our just before bedtime potties.
Mom & I could hear a kitty meowing.
We looked and looked and finally discovered a kitty perched on the deck railing right next to the back of the house.
 It stayed there the whole time we were outside.
That was unusual
We live out of town and we do get cats that come through our property, but they stay clear of the house and run off if they see anyone. 
We went back in the house and went to bed hoping the cat would find his way home.

Next morning we got up and went outside to do our morning constitutionals and once again we could hear the meowing.
This time it was coming from underneath the deck.

 We immediately told Dad and he came out to help get the kitty out from under the deck


The kitty was very glad to see Dad 
and was not scared at all of him or us pugs. 
Mom tried to take pictures of our meeting 
but it was still dark - these are the only pictures that turned out OK


The kitty did get a little intimidated when all three of us wanted to say HI! But he did not run away. 
We thought he must be hungry
 so we gave him some left over chicken to eat. 
Later Dad called his sister who loves cats 
She came over and the kitty ran right up to her when she came in the gate. She looked him over. He was young and skinny and looked like he had been in a fight. She said she  would take him home and off she drove with the kitty in her lap! We are glad he will have a good home.
