Greetings from Snuggle!

After a LONG absence I am finally back! I've gone through many changes since I last wrote. I am now a year and a half old. I still get into stuff but I have pretty much gotten over eating all the furniture in the house. My daddy put a fence in the yard so that I can run and play and use the bathroom at my leisure. But, its been too hot to be outside too much. When I am outside though I get to play with the best neighbors any puggle could have: Lady and Wally Gray! (Ellie is a good neighbor also but she is old like my brother Petey and doesn't like to play). But me and Lady and Wally can run FAST and tumble and chase and all that good stuff! Lady is a big ole Shepherd and Wally is a little ole dachshund and I am in between the two! My mommy likes for me to get tired so that I won't want to chase my shadow on the floor at night. She is becoming concerned about that. She says I am carrying it too far and I think she thinks I am crazy with OCD or something. She has tried toy diversion, treats, etc but still can't get me to stop. I don't know how to make myself stop! Do you have any suggestions? Do you think I need medicine? I hope not, I don't want to be a doped up puggle! Let me know if you have any advice! Till then I am still a cutie, sweetie, loving little SNUGGLE PUGGLE

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
