Relationship Update

That's me giving my Petey a big ole kiss. He has been allowing me to do this for a couple of weeks. Especially now because Petey was recently hurt in our yard. Petey is a total defender of his property. Evidently a big, nasty animal invaded it. Daddy said it was a Nutria. Its an animal that is native to South America but was brought into our state a few years ago. Its like a souped-up Muskrat! Really big with long nails and beaver like teeth! The Nutria was found dead and Petey was beaten up! He had to have stitches under his eye and he has puncture wounds on his neck and back. He hasn't been feeling so good either. Sooo, he lets me love him. Those Nutria like lakes, ponds, and streams so I guess we have to be on the look out for more. I cannot let my Petey get hurt again. He finally loves me and I don't want to lose that!
In other news I am making friends in cyber space! I love to keep up with my Puggle Pals. Maybe someone could tell me if I'll ever get out of this chewing stage?! My latest "snack" was my mommy's footboard. It was so tasty! Also, I'm being kennel trained and I go outside to potty but I still like to sneak in a little pee-pee inside. Mommy watches me like a hawk but somehow I can out maneuver her at some point and DO IT. What great fun (She doesn't think so). What is she supposed to do to break me from these sneaky times? Help her please. She is at wits end (Again!). Just when she has just about had it I'll let her see me like I am in this bottom picture and her heart melts all over again. I'm just so precious.
Its raining outside, dark inside, and cozy, and that's my clue for a quick nap. More sniffs later, Snuggle

Crowning of the Princess

My mommy finally gave up and she proclaimed me the ruler of the house! She said I am now officially a Princess! What she doesn't know is that if I find an eligible puggle boy to marry then I will be a QUEEN! But thats pretty far done the road unless of course she has me fixed first. Thats scheduled for June. Guess I'd better get to work on finding Mr. Right Puggle. Princess is ok though. I still rule things. I do get into a lot of mischief but I can get around that. All I have to do when I've been bad is look up at her and beg to be held and cuddled. She falls for it EVERY time!
Yesterday was pretty miserable. I had to stay locked up in my kennel for a long time. Mommy went to a family reunion and dog children were not allowed. That crowd sure missed out by not letting me and Petey attend. We sure could have ramped things up a bit for those old people.
Its nap time and I'm sleepy. Heck, I got up this morning at five o'clock and haven't slowed down until about 10 minutes ago. Yawn. Excuse Me! Better go rest up for more adventures. Licks & Sniffs, Snuggle

Instructions for new bed use

As you can see Petey and I are getting along much better. My mommy says its because he has resigned himself to the fact that I'm here to stay. He doesn't make any waves anymore regardless of what I do. In fact he is protective of me when the big dogs come over to play. Life has been really good except for this HOT weather. My mommy loves it but its too hot for Petey and me. We can only stay outside for 15 min at the time. Thank goodness I can run around REALLY fast when it gets almost dark and a little cooler. I am still having "accidents" in the house. I just get SO excited and can't help it. I'm ringing that bell for her to take me out but she is too slow. I want to go ahead and DO IT so I can get back to my important playing. My daddy and mommy like to sit on the porch in the late afternoon but I can't because I run straight to those good ole china berries if I'm in the back yard. They ordered a baby gate to hold me in on the porch. ME? A baby?
My mommy says a human baby doesn't eat furniture and they wear diapers and they don't pull things down or run away. Poor little human babies. They must be so bored! God sure blessed me to make me a puggle puppy so I could live here and keep my mommy occupied 24/7. Uh oh, I see her at the computer and she doesn't need to get too comfortable because I don't want her to get spoiled. Got to keep her on her toes! Lots of Licks & Puggle Kisses, Snuggle

Great Day in the Neighborhood

Am I getting BIG or what?! I bet 'cha I might even be a whole 8 lbs now! I must be big cause today I ran and played outside almost ALL DAY. Well, I did get tired a couple of times and my mommy made me take a nap. She says that is the only way she can get anything done these days. Anyway, back to these two the picture of me sleeping I had only been here about a week, it was taken the 27th of March. The other picture was taken today. I LOVE that tennis ball! We played catch for a LONG time. My friends Lady and Ellie and Wally came over...but they mostly hung out with Petey. My mommy says I won't get as big as they are but that's ok because I have a Big Heart and I love everybody so maybe that will make up for me being little. I kind of like being little right now because my mommy gave me just the perfect name: my most favorite thing to do inside is SNUGGLE! I ALWAYS want to be picked up and loved and hugged and kissed, especially just before I go to bed and always when I wake up. I sure wish Petey could pick me up because he is my hero and I love him more than anybody or anything....except maybe my toys...nah, I do love Petey best. Time for mommy is really tired from working in the yard today...I can't wait for tomorrow.....Licks, Snuggle

Aspirin/Zantac Scare

Last night my dad dropped a pill & didn't know whether it was an aspirin or a zantac. I ate it! Scared my mommy and she called animal poison control. She was most afraid it was zantac I had swallowed; turns out the aspirin is more dangerous. It was a long night with her watching out for signs like my vomiting, or having bloody poo-poo, or having trouble breathing. I never had any symptoms (thank goodness). A lesson was learned though. Puppies should never have aspirin! It is very toxic and I could have (sigh) DIED! So listen up all my fellow puggles: stay away from people pills---THEY COULD HURT OUR SWEET SELVES! My mommy was so relieved this morning when I was running around wide open like my usual self. Her relief was short lived though: I ate another china berry today (those things might be deadly but boy they are so good!)Mommy says she is about ready to keep my locked up forever if I can't stay out of trouble. (That woman is a hoot. I know she talks a mean game but I know she loves me so much).

Peace at Last - Red Letter Day

Look at us! Unbelievable! Petey still won't play with me but now he will let me sit beside him. Great improvement. I think he sees Lady and Wally playing with me and he has decided there is no need for him to use his energy. Its supposed to be cold tomorrow so we won't be outside much. It'll be a good time for me to either really make him love me or really get on his nerves.
I found a great new toy today. Mama Joan was cleaning her closet and dropped a plastic clothes hanger. Naturally I grabbed it and took it under the bed with me with all my other treasures. It was great! I have chewed on that thing all day. Uh oh, just remembered that I took mama's shoe under the bed. Better get it out so she can take me to potty. Barks with love, Snuggle

All Tired Out

Wow, we are BOTH tired. Petey got tired because he ISN'T a puppy and I got tired because I AM a puppy. Go figure. I've been calculating and I think I'm good for about an hour and a half before I conk out. Petey just likes to do NOTHING but sleep. I'm sure I need lots of sleep because I'm growing fast now. My legs are longer and I can jump up and prop on the window sill to see outside. That's where I want to be! I keep ringing that bell to go out. Then I go WILD! What fun! Don't know why my mama Joan is losing weight when I am gaining....we both run the same amount! She says Petey is her smart baby and that he has the right idea and one of these years I'll probably agree but right now its just too much fun to discover pine cones, and sticks, and bugs, and flowers, and statues, and rocks....well, you get the idea...Anyway, I'm in my mama Joan's lap and trying to eat the keyboard again while doing this blog and she says I have to get down...more later, Snuggle

April 3, 2009 from Petey

That girl dog isn't looking (for a change) so I'm going to give you guys MY side of things. She is an INTRUDER and has completely changed this household. She just wants to run through the house at a hundred miles an hour and get my stuff and mess up my bed and run up to me and look at me with big ole puppy dog eyes. I'm just too old to put up with this stuff. I don't have the energy to keep up with her so why even try? I have been my mama's only baby for nine whole years and all of sudden she thinks its easier to hold a 5lb dog instead of her 45lb PeteyPie. I just wish everyone would leave me alone. But, I have to be diligent and guard my food. Even my food has changed! Now, its picked up if I don't eat it in a certain period of time cause they want me to lose some of my sweet meat. At least that girl dog can't get it if its on the counter! I'm so tired of all these goings on. At least its stopped raining so now I can go outside and see my girlfriends Lady and Ellie. They like my new sister. Maybe they can tell me WHY?

April 3, 2009

Well, I thought if I played with Petey's stuff and tried to sleep in his bed that he might like me more. WRONG. He doesn't want me to share anything that is his. I can't help it if I like his things better than mine. He just goes around the house looking sad and miserable. If he would just play a little bit I think he'd feel better...but, what do I know...I'm just a puppy. At least my mama Joan is proud of me for ringing the bell when I want to go out to potty...if only I could remember to do it every time...and, they don't know it but I saw her and daddy Robert laughing when I kept ringing it last night over and over and over...hey, it sounds fun. Gotta' go chew on a door stop or something. Later and Lots of Barks, Snuggle

April 1, 2009

I'm back and every day has seen me gain even more energy and strength. I am able to keep my mom Joan on the run. She runs to make me stop pulling on the rugs. She runs to make me stop pestering my brother. She runs to take me outside if I am about to have an accident. Boy, I love to see her run so I've gotta' keep up the good work. I get tired after awhile so I usually just wait and drop right off to sleep in the middle of an adventure. I'm afraid I'll miss something so I don't let myself sleep until I absolutely have to. I know my mom likes to get up at two in the morning so I try to wake up then and get her to take me outside. I don't know why she gets so sleepy during the day?! Petey still doesn't like me but he is only trying to avoid me now instead of barking and growling. Maybe there is hope.....

All About Us

We are two of the best dogs in the world. My name is Snuggle and I have to do this blogging because my big brother Petey is very mad right now. I came to live here last week and he is so jealous. If any of you know what my mom & dad can do to make it all better please tell us! I want to PLAY with him SO BAD! My mom is so sad because it hurts her to see her Petey unhappy. She gives him lots of love & attention but he still doesn't like me and its like he is depressed. Help!

My New Home

Hello! I'm new here to this blogging stuff so help me if I do it wrong. OK? My name is Snuggle and in these pictures I am 10 weeks old. I'm bigger now 'cause I am 11 weeks old! Really I am. My human mom still thinks I'm a baby but thats because I have only been living with her and my human daddy one week. They think I am so little and so sweet and they are RIGHT ! I am looking forward to lots of adventures with them and my big brother Petey. He is a mix of Beagle & Bull. He doesn't like me yet. He is nine yrs old and has been an only "child" here so he is very jealous. What can we do to make Petey feel better? I want him to be happy so we can PLAY!
