Big Girl Sarah

Big Girl Sarah came over last night to get briefed on her pug-related mission starting this Saturday. Woman gave her a list of my needs and the plants' needs. I was kind of surprised to find that my needs are much greater than the plants' needs, because I often feel like Woman loves the plants more than me. I'm a jealous Pug. Big Girl Sarah will be staying with me Saturday-Thursday, so don't expect to hear from me during that time. She is unable to translate Pug brain waves into words like Woman can do, so there will be no way for me to blog. I guess I could call Woman up on the telephone, but she claims to be leaving her computer thingy here at home. If only I could type. Darn paws!

Here is a picture of me on the deck. Woman's catmint can be seen in the background. No, catmint is not like catnip - cats have no interest in it. It does smell slightly minty though, and it blooms like crazy. I have to admit that it is quite pretty, and since it requires little care or watering, I really love it.

By the way, Big Girl Sarah knows that I call her that, and she thinks it's funny. She isn't offended like some people thought she might be. She has a really good sense of humor. I'm sure we will have fun together!

    Norman, tell Big Girl Sarah to take photos to share of your adventures. Also, tell the Woman to have a good trip!

    Norman, you look very bulky and manly in that photograph. Hope Woman has a good vacay!

    Thanks Page. Ian and I have been bulking up by working out and drinking protein shakes. I'm all muscle.

    You look it too!

    I bet Big Girl Sarah will just spoil you with lots of love and attention. :)

    Hi Norman,
    I will miss you while you are away from blogging, especially now that I got mom to help me with updating and visiting more regularly! I hope you have a great time with Big Sarah!

    W hope you will be okay with Big Girl Sarah. We are sure Woman wouldn't leave you with just anyone. Does Woman think catmint would grow up here in New Hampster? Or is it a warmer weather plant? Mom thinks it's gorgeous.

    Well...tell your woman that I hope she has a GREAT time. AND you'd better be good to Big Girl Sarah. No shenanigans.

    Btw, shenanigans consist of pooping on the couch, chewing up toilet paper, peeing on the couch, carpet, chairlegs, shoes, etc. And anything else your woman doens't want done.

    Big girl Sarah is very excited to experience the ongoing adventures of Norman firsthand...

    Norman, be sure to knock on the treat door all the time! If I were staying with you, your Woman would not recognize you when she got back...we'd be enjoying the treats while she is gone. I hope your people have a great vacation!

    Norman,

    If you have to compete with plants for your woman's attention, we suggest eating the plants. It works great! Although it can make the humans angry (we guess it's because they love those darn plants so much)

    We hope you have lots of friend with your pugsitting friend!
