Friday the 13th!

 The lake at Shadow Cliffs Pleasanton, Ca
On Friday our human said we had to get up early because we were going on a picnic by the lake. We would have been satisfied with just that, but you could imagine our delight when she told us we were meeting our Dalmatian Friends, Miley and Boka, Puglet and Brother Dutch and that we were going to meet Buford and the Pack O'Pugs in the fur! Okay we'll admit we lost it and went nuts. What lucky pugs we are. Our human agreed and she told us that many humans don't like Friday the 13th because they believe it's a bad luck day. It might be unlucky for humans but it seemed to be very lucky for pugs. Everything seemed to be going well; we did have to go back to the house once but we wouldn't call that bad luck. We finally get to the lake and were unable to find our friends; there were so many little trails and nooks to get lost in. We were hot, lost and started to think that Friday the 13th was unlucky for pugs too. Thank goodness for modern technology our human called Miley and Boka's human and with help from Puglet and Dutch's human we found our way to the picnic.  There we met Buford, Pearl Li Mae, Lacey and Bambi and they are the cutest, sweetest Pack O'Pugs. Puglet, Brother Dutch, Miley and Boka were already in the water. We went for a little swim to cool off and then we had our picnic. This was the best picnic ever. There was plenty of food and the humans didn't mind us at the table with them. Then the humans decided to take a group picture. Of course we avoided being in the photo and hid under the picnic table. After the chaos of trying to get a picture of 7 pugs and 3 Dalmatians lined up together.(silly humans), everybody was tired, except Miley and Boka. It was time to go home. We don't know if Friday the 13th is a bad luck day. We had both good and bad luck with way more good than bad.
All are welcome at the picnic table!

Phoebe has been caught begging. She claims she was just there to see if she could help with the dishes. However she seems to only want to help her Grandpa do the dishes. Grandpa insists that he has NEVER given Phoebe food from the dishes.  The evidence seems clear but is open to interpretation. What do you think? Are they innocent or guilty?
Hi. Zoey here. I was there too but I heard my human walking towards us and got the heck out of there.  It's hard to distract Phoebe from a chance of getting a crumb of human food,

Happy Belated Birthday Phoebe!

Have you ever have a birthday where nothing happened? Well that is exactly what happened on my birthday last week. I sat there in front of everybody and they said nothing and what's worse they did nothing! Ususally a pug birthday around here consists of: lots of attention, lots of playing, lots of new toys, lots of treats/cookies and best of all doggie ice cream and a doggie cake. There was one birthday tradition I did NOT miss -  the evil birthday hat. But none of that happened. I know my human was ill & her vet made her stay with him at the hospital for a few days. But a week went by before anybody remembered me and my important day! Finally today, my human remembered & she DID feel really bad. She promises to make up it to me with a PHOEBE DAY. But it did hurt my feelings. Has this happened to anyone else or am I the only one?
