Last night the People took me to the Gammy's to make up for leaving me home alone the night before and the night before that. Woman wasn't planning on taking me to the Gammy's, but Ian put my cage in the car thinking Woman wanted to take me, so she decided to take me after all. Woo-hoo!
There were so many people at the Gammy's last night! Ian's oldest sister Whitney (who is younger than him but older than his youngest sister) is in town visiting. She lives in Mobile, because she is going to school at the University of South Alabama. She brought her boyfriend Mica with her. I like Mica. He smells good. There were lots of other people there too, but I won't bore you with the details. Whitney being there was the most exciting, because I haven't seen her in forever.
The People ate BBQ ribs and birthday cake, but I did not get any :( Woman said the ribs were too spicy and would probably upset my tummy. Mica cooked them, and he is from New Orleans, so they were cajun stlye I guess. Otherwise, she would have let me gnaw on some meat from the bone. I had fun anyway though! Woman said she is happy she doesn't have to keep a close eye on me at the Gammy's any more, because she trusts that I won't pee on anything. I think that's funny, because I totally still pee on things. Just kidding Gammy ... I would never pee on your nice upstairs carpet ... again ...
The People went to see Blades of Glory last night at Asheville Pizza and Brewing Company, otherwise known as "The Brew and View." The Brew and View is a cool place, because you can eat good food and drink beers all while watching a $2 movie. Sure, the movies aren't the "latest" in the theaters, but who cares? It's cheaper than a rental. So anyway, the People highly recommend Blades of Glory when you're in the mood to laugh hysterically. That Napolean Dynamite kid teams up with Will Ferrell in doubles figure skating to battle Gob from Arrested Development and his real-life wife. The People love Gob and said he was friggin' hilarious in the movie. The movie might not be meant for younger kids, depending on your viewing preferences as parents due to some crude humor involving sex and sexuality. Well duh, right? It is a movie about two men paired up in doubles figure skating - you're not really getting out of this one without some gay jokes. So, add it to your Netflix queue if you haven't seen it already.
Everyone else is doing this nosy meme, so I thought I would join in. At first, I thought it was a Meimei, but Woman corrected me. Darn ...

Who is your favorite person other than the people you live with? Mr. Chris 5. How much do you weigh? 20 pounds 6. Most expensive thing you’ve ever chewed up? I'm not sure how human money works, so I can't really judge what was more expensive, the linoleum in the kitchen, the wallpaper in the bathroom, the china cabinet, the couch or the end table. I think linoleum, because that's what Woman was most angry about. 7. Do you like other Dogs? Oh yes, unless they are in my house eatin' my food. 8. Who is your best non-human friend?

Let's go with not ... or ... yeah, let's go with not.
I'm tired of Mr. Chris quoting sayings he has seen on lolcats.com like cats are all that and a bucket of chicken. Everyone knows Pugs are much cooler than cats, and that's why I have started lolpugz.com - to show those cats who is the funniest of all! Us! The Pugs! So check out lolcats.com if you have never been there and start composing some lolpugz to show the world who is the funniest! Us! The Pugs! You can send them to me at puglove AT studpug DOT com. I just registered the domain today, so it will be a couple days before it goes live. Oh yeah, and I have to design the page and all. So what are you waiting for pug luvas? You got work to do! If you don't know how to make an lolpug, or you can't think of a funny saying, send me your funny pics and I will have the People do it. That's why I keep them around you know - to keep me entertained and to do all my computer work for me.
We went over to Bill and Kari's to cook them dinner the other night, and Murphy was there of course, because he is their dog and he lives there. Baby Sarah was finishing up her dinner when we got there, and I was trying to greet her with some kisses when Murphy viciously attacked me and bit me on my head! He left a scar and everything! Strangely enough, I didn't bleed, but I did lose some fur. What a jerk! He thought I was trying to go for the "baby drops" of peas and strawberries, but all I wanted was a kiss from sweet Baby Sarah. I don't want ganky half-eaten peas! Murphy got into big trouble for attacking me and had to go into time out for a long time. I ran over to the Woman for some comforting and even wanted her to pick me up. Murphy is a big dog, and he scared the crap out of me! When he finally was released from time out, he was nicer to me, but I don't trust him a bit!
So, it's not even 10am yet this morning, and I have been very bad indeed. I have been barking at the Woman for a treat even though she doesn't think I deserve one, I have been getting tangled up in her feet in an attempt to trip her, I have been standing in front of her so she can't move or she has to step over me to get by, and I have been licking and biting her hand a lot. She says it hurts when I bite, but come on, it's only little love nibbles! So the Woman tells me I am a bad dog, but then she says, "I love you any way bad dog." No, Woman, you are a bad Woman. But, I do love you any way Woman. She needs to toughen up if I am going to keep being her dog.
Hooray for me, I am the Lucky Dog Winner of the Week! Go check me out and sign your Pug up too! The reason I signed up for this contest is for the prize - Lucky Dog Biscuits! With my recent "cut back" on treats, I figured I better get myself a secret stash! Woo-hoo! I'll let you all know when they get here, but don't tell Woman about this, or she'll confiscate them.
So, my treats have been getting smaller lately, and I have been receiving A LOT less of them too. The Woman says I am turning into a greedy little bratt, so she is reducing the number of treats I get a day down to FOUR, and they are seemingly smaller too! Actually, she didn't call me a greedy little bratt. She called me a "greedy little" bad word that begins with a 'b' and ends with a 'turd'. I won't repeat it here though since I am a much more dignified dog than to go around repeating curse words. So, I am a greedy little b-turd, eh? So what if I am! Just because I expect a treat every time I butt my head against the cupboard door that holds the treats doesn't make me unworthy of a treat! Just because I want a treat for stepping outside onto the porch doesn't mean I am wrong! Give me those treats Woman, and stop snapping them in half before pulling them out of the box! That's right. I ain't no dumby. I know you're halving them before pulling them out of the box! Can I get a little support here someone? Don't I deserve more than four halved treats a day? That adds up to just two a day! A Pug could starve on that few treats!
I push my head down onto you really hard so you know I am there. Sometimes it's a leg, sometimes it's an arm, sometimes it's a belly, but I always push real hard so I can't be ignored. Then it's up to the person to guess what it is I want.
When you get the right answer, I stop pushing. Good job, human! You guessed correct!
Hey everyone! Look at me! It's Saturday, and I'm blogging - on Ian's computer too! Hahaha! He's watching the movie Tron, so I snuck back here and logged on. We went to the park today, and it was really hot. Ian poured water on my head to cool me down. I don't know about all you other Pugs, but I HATE having my head get wet. I absolutely despise it! So, I'm plotting to poop in one of Ian's shoes later tonight. Thanks for the idea Duke. Now, should I go in the left or the right shoe??
I ate a moth last night. I didn't want to eat the moth, but it seemed to delight Ian, and I like to make him happy. Ha! Yeah, right. I did eat it because he was cheering me on though. I am quite a ham for attention. It took a long time to get the moth down my gullet. It was squirming around a lot in my mouth and didn't quite want to make the journey to my stomach. I persevered though, and the happy little moth is now digesting in my belly. I still prefer goodboy bones, but a moth every now and then is a nice change.
One day last week some friends came over for dinner. It was good times all around. The People had some left-over wine from the wine party and cooked up some burgers on the new grill. I don't have any pictures of that stuff, but I do have pictures of the important guest at the party - ME!
Here I am with Katherine and Andy while Katherine gives me a good rub down. Andy is trying to not be jealous, but I can read through that look on his face!
Don't worry Andy - I won't try to steal your Woman. Let me tell you a little secret I learned about Women ... Don't go blabbing it now!
Buddy was there too! We played some fetch. Yeah, he usually won.
Buddy is such a good dog. He brings the ball right back to you!
Sometimes I was able to steal the ball from Buddy so I could win too!
Today is my and Woman's 6-year Pugiversary! Happy Pugiversary to us. (Yes, I left Ian out of the festivities, because he didn't really want to get a Pug, so until he can admit that he loves me, he does not get included in the Pugiversary wishes!)
I don't have any pictures of the Woman and me that you haven't already seen, so here' s one of me in the garden not being old womyns.
I hope I get a present today! Maybe even a bath. I'm a stinky stinky Pug.
I know, I know, nobody could ever imagine that Mr. Chris would finally get married. But, the day has really come .. and gone ... Although I did not get to attend the wedding, the Woman did her best to document the special day. Here is some proof for all you skeptics ...
The Bride and Groom - Mr. and Mrs. Chris Sheppard.
Elise's dress was very pretty. The Woman made her bouquet before the ceremony.
The Bridal Party consisted of Elise's sister Sarah, Elise's daughter Madison and Elise's niece Isabelle.
The Groom's Party consisted of Mr. Ian and Elise's son Noah.
The Woman was working hard before the wedding to get the decorations finished up and organize the Bridal Party.
Isabelle pretty much stole the show. She's a cute one!
I mean seriously - how sweeter of an angel could there ever be?
I'm a little jealous of this photo, because I was previously the only one that Mr. Chris kissed on. I wonder if our kissing will have to end now that he is married?
The cake looks yummy!
Chris and Ian's good friend Regular Brian was able to fly in from Oklahoma to join the party.
You can tell that Mr. Chris was really glad to see Regular Brian.
The Woman got sick during the reception, because she was running around in the heat before the ceremony. She thinks she got heat exhaustion. As you can tell from the pictures, the ceremony and reception were outdoors, and it was pretty hot that day. She had to go to the car and lay down for most of the reception, so there are no photos of the partying that went on during that time. Apparently, there was a great DJ and karaoke, but I see no proof of that. I'm sure Mr. Chris rocked the mic with his Rolling Stones tributes!
The wedding site was 1 1/2 hours from Mr. Chris's house, so the People had to leave me alone at Mr. Chris's a lot. Brother and Dooly (Mr. Chris's new other dog) were at Elise's house, so I was home alone the whole time. I got really tired of this arrangement the night of Chris's wedding, and I broke out of my bathroom cell. When the People came back, I was wagging my tail to greet them at the door! Woman thought it was funny to imagine me running around Mr. Chris's house like a crazy man! I'm not sure how long I was free, but it was long enough to take a big dooky on the bedroom floor. Take that Mr. Chris for getting married without me!!
