#59 - Meet Our Friends

Hello loves! We currently have 3 entries for our Tumbler Toy giveaway. They are such beautiful photos and stories that we would like to share them with you :]

The Pug Corral

Meet Payton, Dallas, and Reggie, our friends from The Pug Corral blog! These cuties have a blog that is so much fun to peak at. Here's what the pugs have to share about themselves:

"Dallas and Reggie were rescued by our Momma's wonderful friend, Miss Sheila, who found us in a lady's backyard breeding business. Although, Reggie was a surprise: he was in his Momma Pug's tummy, unbeknownst to Miss Sheila! Peyton was rescued through Kentuckiana Pug Rescue (KPR). We are all very sweet, fun, and loving Puggies and Momma says she doesn't remember her life before we came!"

Who could remember life pre-pug? I don't think anyone could, especially when they have three cuties such as these! Thanks for sharing your story, lovepugs :]


Flora

Flora is a cute little black pug with an irresistible face. Her mom, Tiffany, e-mailed me with this story:

"Flora is a feisty, Lab-loving (her brother Butters is a yellow Lab!) Pug. We actually refer to her as a "Pugrador", as she really does seem to think she is a big dog/Lab! Her favorite toy so far is a soft Kong "fox", and she enjoys carrying it around in her mouth while whining. She is generally a bit of a whirling dervish, but then poops out pretty quickly and "recharges" in the sunlight that comes through our sliding glass door. She is a snuggler, but also enjoys her independence! She is a quirky, clownish pug, and of course, her human dad and I adore her!"

I love to hear about little pugs who think that they are these huge powerful conquistadors. It's too funny! JD has this same complex. We are so glad to have met Flora and to hear about her adventurous and playful nature.


China


We received our latest entry yesterday when China's mom brought her story to our attention. This one makes my heart feel warm and fuzzy.

"I found her on an online selling website and knew I had to find her and give her a home that she deserved. Upon adoption I found that she had had 5 owners before she was even 12 weeks old, and within our first vet visit we found that she also had a severe case of Demodex Mange. China has just turned 1 year old and has had no health problems since she came to live with us. She's the happiest pug I have ever seen!"

Now that is a heart-warming story! When I was in grade school, my teacher used to call random acts of kindness or tokens of love "warm fuzzies". I think that Flora's mom, Samantha, gave China a "warm fuzzy" by adopting her and bringing her back to health. It is intriguing that a "warm and fuzzy" creature can inspire us to be so giving of ourselves through "warm fuzzies".

Well, this completely made my day! I hope that this has inspired more readers to enter our contest to win a dog toy that we have hand-made with lots of love. Click here for details on how to enter. All you have to do is send us a picture and a small blurb about your sweet fur-baby or fur-babies, and you'll be entered.

Have a lovely day!

These stories warmed my heart.
I know these sweet babies have homes now and love. I wish all little doggies could have love and a forever home. I am so grateful for humans that help.
And these little faces are precious, so precious.
Thankyou for sharing with me.
