hey you! thanks for commenting on my first pug! I have puggy love! And I'm new to the site, so I haven't put up any info on my baby yet. Stitch is a brindle! I love him to pieces! that pic was taken at 7 weeks old, right before we took him home. Weighing in at 5 pounds. He's now 11 weeks old and holding strong still at 5 pounds but has grown about 3x his size. He's a cute lil bugger. Your babies are darling!

Advance happy birthday, Pugsly! How I wish I could attend your party. I'm sure it's gonna be lots of fun. Promise to save a piece of cake for me, ok? I haven't picked up Maddie yet... my pug mobile is at the shop. I wanna make sure it's in great condition for our date! hahaha Would you like to come with me and Maddie when we watch a Disney movie? Tell Robbie and Frankie they can come too. I'm buying popcorn and soda for everyone!

Madison Rose (almost 8 years ago)

Yay!  Sounds like a group of us are going to the movies!  The more, the merrier!  Can't wait for the gang to get together! 

Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie, do you still have enough leaves or do you need any of ours?  We still have plenty to share!   Just let me know and we'll ship some your way!

Hi Pugsly!! How was your birthday party last saturday? I bet it was a lot of fun. After all...we, pugs, know how to party and have a great time, huh?   Please post some pics from your party, ok? Say hi to your brothers, Robbie and Frankie!

Madison Rose (almost 8 years ago)

Pugsly, I am having an EXCELLENT visit with my grammie and grampie.  My grampie covers me up in the morning before he goes to work and my grammie let me get into bed with her the other morning and sleep with her.  I also get lots of treats, like pears and chicken and ice and popsicles.  Grammie also takes me on lots of walks and lets me play in the yard and meet lots and lots of neighbors.  I even got a toy--a funny piece of candy corn that Grammie and I play tug of war with.  I hope you're having an excellent time, too.  I love all of your halloween costumes.  I might not get to dress up this year 'cause my mommie's been too busy at work and being out of town.  But I'm enjoying seeing everyone else dressed up!  Licks and wags from Maddie.

Madison Rose (almost 8 years ago)

Waffles!  Yummy, yum!  I just got my first taste of waffles the other day, from my Grammie!  We call them "waffers" and she dips them in syrup for me.  Did you have fun at the dog park?  I bet those waffles gave you tons of energy so you all could run and run and run!  Have a good day and keep in touch!  Licks and wags from Maddie!  (p.s.  My mommie is picking me up tomorrow at my grammie and grampie's house, so I guess my vacation will soon be over .   But the good news is I get to see my mommie again!)

Madison Rose (almost 8 years ago)

Pugsly, I sure hope you got some pictures of your halloween party.  60 pugs in costume sounds amazing.  Our pugfest was cancelled this year so I was very sad, especially since I couldn't go last year (when I was only 1) because I was sick.  Well, I'll be waiting for your halloween party photos.  Can't wait to see them!

Madison Rose (almost 8 years ago)

Hey Pugsly, thanks for your note.  Yes, I'm back home with mommie and I gave her a hard time for leaving me.  I ignored her for one full day.  Now I"m back to loving her, with plenty of licks and wags and pug hugs.  I'm still hoping to get a photo in for the halloween fun on pugspot.  The problem is I HATE my dress and keep spinning around and trying to bite it.  We'll see if I get one on there.  You guys all look adorable in your costumes!  So cute!

hi pugsly! i've never been to a pug meet up. but i overheard my mommy and daddy the other night about looking for a pug group in our area so i can play with the other pugs. i am so envious of you coz you always go to pug meet ups and you have a lot of pug friends. i really wish we were neighbors, pugsly.

take care always. stay sweet and charming.

Hi Pugsly, and yes another pug is in our future.  There is a possibility of adopting a lost pug from the local animal shelter, I don't know the age, color, sex or for that matter anything about it.  It was a pick up on the streets and no one will say anything until after tomorrow. that is when the time is up for the owners to locate it.  Tanzie is to go in on Wed, they rescheduled her spay date, and of course no one can adopt from our local pug shelters until that is done. prerequisite. I am so looking forward to it cause we have been having a ball with our pug dates. Thanks for asking, sorry its a bit late.

Pugsly and Boys! I refuse to go outside, which is why my mommie made sure I'm paper trained. No having to go out in that icky snow and slush and mommie doesn't have to get out of bed in the middle of the night to take me out! P.S. I love your snow photos and I love the word "warmie!" Maybe I can get one of those, too. Right now, I just sit in front of the heating vent in the kitchen. Love to all of you from me, Maddie

Hi Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie, did you get a snow storm? We did. It snowed ALL day yesterday. I laughed when I saw the photos of you watching movies. I would LOVE to watch movies, too, but I can't sit still long enough. Have a happy holiday! Love from my mommie and me!

Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie, my mommie would rather just buy me new toys than sew up the old ones (although my grammie will sometimes sew up my favorites!) Your daddie must be more talented than my mommie! She's just not great with a needle and thread and once my sister Rosie ATE a needle and thread and it came out her backside. OUCH! Hope you're having a good new year! Love from Maddie the Baddie!

Pugsly, why am I not surprised that you also like to lick hands?! I guess great minds think alike, huh? LICKS and WAGS from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly the licker! I thought of you because yesterday when my mommie came home from work, I licked her hand for 20 minutes straight. She's been at home on vacation since before x-mas and she just started a new semester. I guess I just missed having her around. Do you get clingy when your daddy's not around? Kiss the boys for me! Love from Maddie!

Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, I hadn't heard the controvery about Punxsutawney Phil, but we live fairly close to Punxy (as it's called around here). While I don't know Phil personally, I have met several of his relatives in my backyard. One in particular I believe is Gus, the infamous groundhog from the PA lottery commercials. Anyway, what is Peta concerned about? Phil's a star around here. I bet Punxy Phil is treated better than we are (well, okay, I realize NO ONE is treated better than us, but you know what I mean!) So what's the controversy? Licks and wags to all of you from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, What?! A mechanical groundhog? How stupid will that be?! I say we keep Phil. I mean, heck, he's a tradition! I'll pass your regard along to Gus, though I haven't seen him in a while. Maybe, like me, he hates the snow! Hope you and the boys and your daddie are all keeping warm and having fun together! Love from me and my mommie! (P.S. Keep me posted if you hear anymore about poor Punxy Phil!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, here's another Phil update: I guess he saw his shadow and we're getting 6 more weeks of winter. Yuck. On a funnier note, I saw that there's going to be a commercial during the superbowl that features Punxsutawny Palamalu (of Pittsburgh Steelers fame) being pulled from his hole and predicting 6 more weeks of football! Ha ha! I saw it and it was pretty funny. Hope you're well. Licks and wags from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

I guess Phil and Digger are on the same wavelength: more weather! Yuck! I'm getting bored. You're lucky that you have so many pugs to play with. My mommie was sick yesterday and I had to play alone. No fun for her to have a day off if she can't have fun with me. Stay warm! Licks and wags from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Thanks for all your good wishes. I think my mommie is feeling better--it must be all that pug love coming from your direction. Gus (Pennsylvania's second most famous groundhog, the one who does the lottery commercials) sends his favorite message: "Keep on scratching!" He means lottery tickets but I like to scratch our couch and the carpet! My mommie started calling me Digger (kinda like your prarie dog) because I was scratching stuff so much. I would like to meet a prarie dog since all we have are groundhogs and deer and rabbits. Maybe I'll look it up on the internet! Hope you're all being good 'cause I'm sure NOT! Licks and wags from Madison Rose!

Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly! Oh no! We are in the middle of a terrible snow storm. We haven't had electricity or HEAT since Friday night. No tv. No internet. We can't cook anything. My mommie and I managed to stick it out until Sunday morning then we drove (very carefully over icy roads) to Grammie and Grampie's house two hours away. Now we have good food (Grammie's a good Italian cook) and a warm house. My mommie's school has been closed down (yay) and we don't know when we can go home (boo hoo). If you don't hear from us, it's 'cause my Grammie and Grammpie don't have a computer or internet so mommie has to go to starbucks to check email. We hope you're all doing well and staying warm! Licks and wags from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, we are STILL not at home because electricity has been out since last Friday night and we still have no heat. I'm having a great time at Grammie and Grampie's because my mommie's university got closed for the ENTIRE week, so we get to stay with them. You are so smart--how did you know my grammie made me waffles yesterday? Plus I got an ice cream cone last night (well, I kinda took over Grammie's!) I also got roast beef and potatoes the other night. I'm having a fine time. Thanks for your concern. You guys stay warm and have fun playing together! Licks and wags from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie (and Daddie, too!) My mommie and I finally made it back home this morning from Grammie and Grampie's house. We were away almost a whole week. I'm glad to be home but I kinda miss the food. Not only did I get waffles, but I got spaghetti, pizza, fried chicken, pears, etc. Thanks to all of you for being so concerned about us. It's nice to know you're all out there and sending good thoughts our way. We think you should all get a special shout out for being such supportive friends. Licks, wags, pug hugs, and love from Maddie (and her mommie!)

Hi guys! Happy Valentines Day to all of you, too. Sorry I'm a little late with my note but it's been hectic around here--and MORE snow is on the way! Plus I refuse to eat my dog food since I got spoiled eating all that "people food" at Grammie and Grampie's house and Mommmie's a little mad about that. Hope you guys are having fun! Licks and wags from Maddie the Baddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Oh, no. How in the world did you manage to get ON the table, Frankie? I'd love to learn that trick so I can get into the doggie treats. Did you EAT the potatoes? Raw? That's too funny. We have to keep our trash out of reach 'cause I get into EVERYTYHING. I bet my grammie would love to cook for you guys. She lives to feed people, including me! She says I'm just like a little person. Plus she ADORES pugs. We'd give her a run for her money, I'm certain! Only problem is we might get fat. My sister Rosie (who's in heaven now) weighed 30 pounds! Wow!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Don't worry about my mommie getting mad. Usually she'll be angry for about 1 second, then she'll laugh and say, "it's a good thing you're so cute or you wouldn't be able to get away with so much mischief!" I WISH my grammie delivered so she could bring me dinner every night. I only eat really well when I visit her and grampie (they live 2 hours away). You guys try to be good! Ha ha! Licks and wags from Miss Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Poor cold puggies! Have Daddie give you all warmies! Then you can all cuddle together! That's what my mommie and I do. We hide under the big pink blanket and play "find Maddie!"

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Hey boys! Nice to hear from you. My mommie's been especially busy with work this week so not much computer time. How did I know you guys would be bed hogs? My grammie bought my sister Rosie a plate with a cartoon pug on it and the pug is pushing the humans out of the bed. It's called BED HOG! My sister was a full-figured gal, about 30 pounds, so she was really a bed hog. Talk to you soon. In the meantime, stay out of trouble! Ha ha! Love from Maddie the Baddie!

Hi Pugsly and company, thanks for the birthday shoutout! I'm so excited I can hardly wait but I'm afraid someone will try to slip a stupid birthday on my head like they did last year--and take a picture. I wish I could send you guys some of my birthday cupcake! Instead, hugs and kisses coming your way! Love, Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Hi guys! I made it finally--I'm two today. Thanks for your good wishes. No party yet, since my mommie has to get some work done. But she's stopping on the way home to pick up my cupcake. So far, I've heard happy birthday from several relatives, people friends, and dog friends. I'm glad everyone's so excited for me. The best part is that my grammie and grampie are coming on the weekend since next week is spring break and they get to stay for a visit. . Grammie said she'd fed ex you guys some goodies if she could! I'll keep you guys posted. Wish you could be here to help me celebrate! Licks and wags from Maddie!

Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly and boys, there's TONS of cake left (it was really two cupcakes combines with LOTS of icing!) My mommie wouldn't let me finish it 'cause she was afraid I'd get sick. I wish you could share some with me. Licks and wags from Maddie

Hi Boys! My new leopard toy is now a hand puppet. I chewed a hole in it and all the stuffing came out! We didn't even have a chance to give him a name! Ha ha ha! I'm so bad! Hope you guys are all doing well and staying warm! Love to you from me, Maddie (and her mommie, of course!)

Hello Fellas! I am a bit tough on toys. Even if they get sewn up, I still rip them apart. I like to suck on my toys, too, especially when I'm sleepy. You guys have a good weekend, too. My mommie's on spring break all next week (no work for her!) and my grammie and grampie are coming to visit us tomorrow. I plan to score LOTS and LOTS of goodies! Love and hugs from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie! A WHOLE chicken?! AND taters?! You three are the luckiest guys ever. I wish I coulda been there. My grammie and grampie have been visiting since Saturday and tonight we're having a dinner party. Grammie's making her famous spaghetti and meatballs and some of our friends will be here. I haven't had a nap so I hope I'm good (or I'll get put in my pen and never get any 'ghetties that way! And Pugsly, remember this: you don't have an evil pug (unless it's me!) I'll be thinking of you guys! Keep your paws crossed that I get lots and lots of goodies and belly rubs tonight! Licks and wags from Maddie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Hi guys! I followed your advice: I was really good (well, PRETTY good) and I scored at the dinner party. Grammie gave me 'ghetties and one of Mommie's friends brought me TWO toys from petsmart! I got a chewie ring and a zebra, who I'm calling Zeke. I was so excited I ran and ran around the house (THEN I got put in the pen!) I came out after dinner and fell asleep at the table in my mommie's arms. I snored and everyone laughed! Wish you coulda been there. Grammie would have been certain to give you lots of pasta and plus she sends home guests with leftovers! Love and hugs from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Hello, Boys. Yeah, I scored pretty well at the dinner party: toys and treats--the two T's! Sorry to hear about your grammie and I hope she feels better soon. Pugs are EXCELLENT healers and there's THREE of you guys so she should be feeling better very quickly! Take good care of her and yourselves and of course your daddie. Hugs from Madison Rose

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, I'm SO relieved to hear it's nothing serious. I've suffered from some skin problems myself, so it happens to the best of us. Glad to hear you got some alone time with Daddie and especially that you got treats. Hooray for the good news! My grammie's been calling me "Woody" and "Woodsy" 'cause I've been chewing the wooden furniture again! My mommie's been calling me "Beaver" and I'm in BIG trouble with her because she caught me chewing her dining room chairs! Ooops. The trick is NOT to get caught, I guess. Feel better soon! Hi to the boys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, I admit I'm very bad. That's why my mommie can only have me, no brothers and sisters. The other day Mommie was busy writing a speech she had to present at work the next day, so when she wasn't looking I ate an ENTIRE giant bone chewie. Later on, I threw up all through the house. Yuck. That got her attention and taught her a lesson: better pay attention to Maddie the Baddie! Good thing she loves me so much that she didn't really mind!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

I forgot to ask: why can't you play with the stuffed beaver? Will you destroy him? I love his name! My mommie can't understand why, when I have a million flavored chewies and toys, I would choose to eat wood. I'll admit: I'm strange. Love to all of you from Me!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie, We have lots of things I can't touch or I'll destroy them, so I understand. Earlier today, I was chewing one of our rugs. Sorry to hear about the snow. We've had beautiful weather most of the week, close to 70 degrees and I even got to go outside. Later, we'll be celebrating Mommie's birthday so I hope I get some special treats. (I'd tell you how old she is but I can't count THAT HIGH!! Even in dog years!!) Pug hugs to all you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

You're right! Every morning when she leaves, my mommie says, "see you in 35 seconds--I have to go earn money for petsmart!" Then I go RIGHT back to sleep under the covers! Whatta life!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Hi Guys! Mommie says thanks for all of her birthday wishes. We're very tired here this morning, just kinda hanging out on the couch and watching junk tv. I tried to be good as part of Mommie's gift (along with the pug hugs and kisses you suggested). I guess today I can go back to being BAD again! Enjoy the wonderful weather! Pug hugs to all you guys from Maddie (and her mommie!)

Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Woof right back atcha! I LOVE to go to Petsmart and Petco (except for nail cutting time). Always plenty of dog friends to meet and treats to score. Plus people LOVE to stop and pet me. I like the logic of dog money. Somehow we gotta capitalize on that. Perhaps with our good looks? Ha ha! Have a fun day! Licks and wags from Maddie

Snow? Yucky! I don't know numbers either, but 18 inches sounds like a lot! We've had weather in the 70s so I've been getting outside and running around the yard and the house. I also like to chase birds and leaves and to sit and watch the neighbors' houses (and the neighbors, if they're outside). The bad news is we are supposed to have rain again today. Keep all of your paws crossed that the weather gets nice again. Have a paw-fect day, guys! Hugs from Maddie

Pugsly, Frankie, Robbie, and of course Daddie! It's gotten colder here and is going to rain--but at least we didn't get snow, though my grammie and grampie got 2 inches the other morning at their house. I've been spending lots of time lounging on the couch. I'll get up later and get into some trouble, keep my mommie on her toes. Enjoy what's left of the weekend! Love ya lots! Maddie the Baddie

I'm always good when my grammie watches me, too. Probably 'cause she gives me lots and lots of goodies. Does yours? One day snow and one day 70 degrees? I'd be terribly confused. Like you, I don't like wet feet, either. I make Mommie carry me everywhere if it's raining or snowing. I got a box in the mail from my grammie and grampie today for easter. It had TWO presents: one is a stuffed bone and one is a stuffed rabbit. I'm working over the bone right now (I only get one toy at a time--Mommie saves some for days when I'm really bored) and I have to go call Grammie and Grampie and say Thank you. Since I don't talk, it will sound more like "snort, snort!" Ha ha! Talk to you soon! Luv from Maddie

Your grammie and mine sound alike. I get toast EVERY morning that I stay with her--toast and jam must be a grammie thing! Lounging is also one of my specialties, though I'm still a bit too active too lounge too much. I like to keep everyone on their toes. Tell Frankie I like to suck on my toys, too. They keep getting dirtier and dirtier but I keep carrying them around and sucking on them. My mommie wonders why I like to suck on a filthy stuffed frog, but I can't give her a good answer! Ha ha! Have a pug-wonderful day! Maddie

dear pugsly, frankie, and robbie (daddy too),
mommy went thru our toy box and unfortunately not all of our stuffed toys made the cut. we had a bunch from our human sisters that mommy was just unsure of, so out they went as we stood in horror! but mom said, no worries, time to go on a field trip to get more so it's all good. ain't it great to be loved like that.
pug hugs,
rosie and mikey

Good luck at the easter egg hunt--or doggie treat hunt--or whatever you hunt for! Hope you score lots of goodies! Pug hugs from us to all of you!

Hi Fellas! Glad to hear you had an eggs-cellent Easter. I can't WAIT to see the photos! You guys are so funny and I'm certain the pictures will bring a smile to my face. I could use it. My mommie's getting a little sad 'cause it's coming close to the anniversary when my pug "sister" Rosie died (it will be two years on April 20). So try to make those photos extra silly to make her happy again! Licks and wags from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, Frankie, Robbie (and Daddie!), your photos are egg-cellent! I never saw any Easter treat that looked so perfect. I can see why they didn't last long! Wish I coulda been there to celebrate with you. Maybe I'll show my grammie these eggs and try to convince her to make some for me! Hee hee! BTW, my mommie says thank you for making her feel better with your funny egg pictures and your words of support about my sister Rosie. Even though she has me, she still has a special place in her heart for Sister and she's glad she has wonderful people like you who understand and can make her feel better. Love from both of us to all of you! P.S. Hope you didn't get a sugar hangover! Those are the worst!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Thanks for the treats, guys! I like 'em even when they're virtual (though not as much!) I'm gonna ask my mommie if she'll start checking out stuff at the grocery store more carefully. Enough with the dog food--head to the bakery section, right?! Pug hugs from one puglet to all three of you (plus Daddie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

I was pretty good today, mainly 'cause I slept most of the morning and early afternoon. But when I caught Mommie napping on the couch, I flew from the loveseat across the room and threw myself on top of her and made her get up! Ha ha! When I landed on her, she made a noise like "ooooph!" Even still, she wasn't mad and took me outside to see the daffodils. We also discovered some violets, so it was our lucky day. Still good weather, in the high 60s, but it will be getting cold again tomorrow. It just now started to rain. My mommie made chicken and rice, too, but it was a little too spicy for me. Tell Frankie and Robbie that I've been good, even though I started acting bad a few minutes ago. Hugs to ya all! Maddie!

Hi guys! I discovered that we have a bunny building a nest (or home or whatever it is bunnies build!) right beneath the window, in the bushes in front of the house. He (she?) kept coming out to eat grass and then to drag grass back to his new house! I was so interested that I didn't even bark, just stood in the window and watched. Pretty funny! Speaking of funny, I would LOVE to see a photo of Frankie in his chair, just chillin' and tannin', maybe with a cocktail in his paw. Hilarious image! Love to you all! Maddie (and her mommie, who's cranky 'cause she has to grade papers--yuck!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Oh, I'm very kind to bunnies. Love 'em. I don't bark at or chase them. Last summer I sat in the lawn about 10 feet from a bunny and just watched him. I didn't bother him and he didn't bother me. We just looked at each other. My mommie's been trying to get ME to grade her papers (and one of her friends is trying to get her CAT to grade HER papers!) I say "NO WAY!" I am, however, checking them to see that she's being nice (if she's not, I'll go back and change the grade myself!) Mommie says only 3 more weeks and then school's out. YAY! Can't wait to have Mommie all to myself! Hope you're having a great weekend, guys! Love to you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie (plus Daddie, of course!), I'm very glad to hear from all of you. It's been a while and I was getting worried. Why has your week been strange? I hope everything's okay. My mommie's been busy with the last few weeks of school (lots of grading) and now she's looking to buy us a HOUSE! I'm really excited about that last part so keep all of your paws crossed (that's a LOT of paws) that she can find us a good new home. (Plus her being busy helps her forget Sister being gone 2 years now). Enjoy your pug meetup and kiss all the pugs for me! I wish I could go, too. Pug love to all of you from me (and Mommie, too!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Hello Fellas! Hope you're having a wonderful time at the pug meetup today. I know with all of your winning personalities that you'll all make even more friends. Thanks for all of your good wishes with house buying. I'm trying to be good so I'm snuggling on the couch right now, under a nice fluffy blanket, while Mommie gets some work done. As for me getting my own room, well, I'm kinda hoping to be in charge of the entire place! That's why one of my nicknames is "Boss." Love to you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Hi Boys! A long-haired pug? That sounds funny. Did you take a picture? It's not raining here but it got cold so I napped on the couch with Mommie (she's been working too hard so I let her rest--until my snoring woke her up! Hee hee!) Still working on the house so we'll see if we find something. Hope you boys are being good for your daddie! Have a fun-filled weekend! Love to you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Yesterday was a good day for napping. Seems like everyone I talked to yesterday spent the afternoon sleeping! Pugsly, you're a good man to keep your daddie company! Remember, he's the boss (or are you the boss like I am?! Ha ha!) MMMMMM, green beans. I like carrots, too. Have a wonderful Sunday. Be good and have fun! Love ya, Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

I'm not supposed to use the computer alone but sometimes I do when I get bored! Ha ha! Cheerios happen to be one of my favorite treats. I even have special cheerio containers (in the car, at Grammie's, all over the house!) They're big and yellow and shaped like cheerios and they say "cheerios" on top! I get excited when I see that container come out. We're always finding cheerios in the couch. Hope you had fun playing with your grammie and your daddie! Talk to you soon! Maddie the Baddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Thanks for your good thoughts. We got through yesterday okay. I guess it's true that time does heal all wounds. We know Rosie wouldn't want us to be sad. Love you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Frankie, Maddie here (I love that!) Your chair pictures are hilarious. Thanks for brightening my day. Now I'm off to a laughing start! I gotta start bugging my mommie for a chair now!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Raining cats and dogs! I love it! Next time, I'll be on the lookout for pugs from the sky. We had rain yesterday and tons of rainbows. Very pretty. Maybe that's good luck that mommie will buy me (and her!) a nice house. Paws crossed! Have a good day, guys! Love ya!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Hi Pugsly, Robbie, Frankie (and Daddie!), Mommie made an offer on a house that was accepted by the seller last night! She said we just have to go through all the paperwork and inspections and mortgages and stuff (whatever that means!) All I know is this house has a fenced-in yard for ME and a patio AND a deck. I'll be able to lay in the sun and enjoy life while Mommie goes out and earns money to keep me in the lifestyle to which I've grown accustomed. Hope you guys are well and keep ALL your paws crossed for us! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

The only thing formalized with the house situation is that contracts have been signed by the sellers and the buyer (that's US!) We still have to have the house inspected and do paperwork and close on the house and stuff. Mommie (and Grampie) will certainly check the fence to be sure I can't escape and go exploring (even though I like to travel and meet people!) I don't think we'd be moving until about mid-June, so it will be a while. Wish I could have you all over for a pug party! We'd have a blast! Love ya lots! (P.S. I have to go. Mommie is worrying that something will go wrong with the house deal so I have to go and distract her with toys. She worries too much!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

A golden retriever? They must make quite a pair. My sister Rosie had a golden retriever boyfriend named Bubba (they're both in heaven now) and his tail was bigger than her entire body (and Rose was a full-figured gal!) Glad you scored treats and had fun. I suspect us pugs manage to attract so many goodies and so much love 'cause we're so cute! Have a good day, boys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

We'll be sure to take plenty of photos of the new place. I'm working on getting that chair right now, Frankie. Then I can tan and drink cocktails, just like you! Hee hee. Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Guys! NO more fighting. Someone's gonna get hurt even worse than poor Daddie's finger, and that's pretty bad. After all, who's gonna type messages for you? Us pugs do tend to get crazy about food, but we have to learn to not lose our heads about it! Good thing your daddie's not angry. He's a good and smart man. Be sure to give him lots of kisses and snuggles to make up for your bad behavior. Puga colatas! That's funny! How about pugaritas?! Okay, be sure to love each other! Love from Maddie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Never go to bed angry, I always say. Seriously, I had a vet who once said, "don't hold a grudge against your dogs because they won't understand it." And besides, who could stay angry at those sweet puggy faces?! Boys, be good and Daddie, feel better.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Hey guys! I'm sure Daddie wasn't mad; he understands how these things work, that he was just a victim of the circumstances. Sometimes us pugs just lose our heads when it comes to yummies. We just can't help ourselves, right? Have a T-riffic day filled with lots of fun! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

A PUG channel! What a fabulous idea! Maybe we should approach a network and we could be the STARS in it! If not, I'd still love to watch a t.v. show like that! Hope you had fun with your grammie! Does she spoil you guys? Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Grammies are excellent to nap with (and grampies are, too!) I agree: O's ROCK! BTW, yesterday, Mommie and I went outside and we saw a SNAKE slithering by our patio. YUCK! We both ran away and played in a different part of the yard. Fingers crossed we get that new house--no snakes. Love, Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

We're not sure if the snakes around here are dangerous, but Mommie and I are typical girls and we didn't stick around to find out. Now Mommie teases me (once we're safe inside) and makes a hissing snake with her finger and I DON'T LIKE IT! I'm sure that Grampie will Maddie-proof my new backyard. He already noticed there are rose buses in the fenced-in back yard and he wants them removed ASAP so I don't get hurt. It's very nice to be so loved, isn't it? We're all very lucky pugs. Love to all of you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

YAY! Happy Birthday to Daddie! Cake and ice cream sound delicious (plus you can always share with him!) You could also give him the present of being good all day (but I always have trouble with that one myself!) I think all you boys give your daddie a gift every day--just by being the wonderful puggies that you are! Take pictures of the festivities! Love you all and happy birthday to Daddie! From Maddie and her mommie (who also sends birthday wishes!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

You boys are so generous and love your daddie soooo much. It was so nice of you to break into your banks and spring for ice cream (YUM!) and even sweeter for Frankie to share his rabbit. I know how much he loves it. No wonder Daddie was ready to cry--I'm tearing up just reading about it! Happy, happy birthday and enjoy each other! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Well, camping for my grammie and grampie isn't really roughing it. Their camper is nicer than our house (though maybe not the new house!) I wish you could camp with us. This year the campground is building a dog run, so I'll be able to meet with all my dog (and people) friends in style! There's LOTS of dogs there and we're all great friends. One even sent me a pug x-mas card this year! Have a pug-wonderful day!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie, I understand about you guys wandering around. That's one reason why my grammie says, "only one pug at a time--I couldn't handle any more!" (she and Grampie are my sitters when Mommie has to go out of town) but Mommie says, "Maddie wants a sister or two!" Like you guys have each other!

Our camping isn't too wild. Mostly we see deer and rabbits, maybe a groundhog, and sometimes someone spots a bear but not often! But not many wild critters (love that word!) Mostly I just hang out around the picnic table or nap on the porch swing. Hope you guys all have a wonderful day! I'm going back to sleep now! Pug hugs from Maddie (and her mommie)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Congrats to Robbie on his gotcha day and his chicken mcnuggets! My gotcha day is gonna be on Monday (May 17) but I didn't know it was called that! I probably won't be lucky enought to get mcnuggets but Mommie went to a retirement luncheon yesterday and brought me home chicky-licky! Yum. I was so bad last night that I had to sleep alone in my pen (no cuddling with Mommie). Now I'm sleeping on the couch and my mommie is packing boxes. I'll try to be better today. Congrats to you Robbie! Love you all!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly and Boys, I got sprung from the pen last night, so I got to cuddle with Mommie. It was MUCH better than sleeping alone. I promised to help her pack boxes today, but it seems all I want to do today is nap on the couch. Since I threw up yesterday, Mommie is keeping an eye on me and letting me rest. We hope it's just that I ate too fast. Paws crossed that I'm not really sick. You guys be good and have fun today! Love from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

You're right! I was up to my same old mischief today, so I guess I'm not sick. I was "helping" my mommie with boxes today (if chewing holes and eating boxes counts as helping!) Hope you all are having a GREAT day!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Awwww, you guys shouldn't let your poor grammie stand out in the rain (though I agree that us puggies are smarter than our mommies, daddies, and grammies!) I've been trying to help mommie with packing, but mostly I just check to see what's going into those boxes and I chew boxes. Toys haven't been packed yet since I play with them every day. Hope you guys have an excellent weekend! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Hey guys, thanks for the heads-up on this gotcha day thing. I'm scoring all sorts of extra attention and a few extra treats. Glad you got my back the way I have all of yours! Woof! from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Us puglets have to stick together, right? Any time any of us scores a treat, it's a victory for us all! Love ya!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 7 years ago)

Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie (plus Daddie!), that storm sounds VERY scary and I'm sorry you had to go through it. I usually don't get scared during storms but when I hear thunder my ears perk up. Since I'm not much of a barker (like my "sister" Rosie), I remain quiet but am alert during rain, wind, and thunder. Glad you guys had your escape plan all ready but even more glad you didn't need to use it! Don't worry, though. Your daddie loves you all waaaaaaay too much to let anything bad happen to you. Love you all and stay safe! Maddie (and her mommie, too!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Poor Joker. His mommie must be terribly upset and you guys must be, too. I am soooo sorry. I will keep my paws crossed and hope he makes it home. Do they have any idea who might have taken him? My thoughts are with you. Keep me posted.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

I love, love, love your new photos and videos (except the part with Joker's missing sign). I needed to be cheered up. I went to the vet today and not only did I get a shot and have my nails cut but the doctor said I gained THREE pounds since last year's visit. I weight 23 pounds! Whoops! I'm now on a strict diet--and very sad about it. Right now I'm pouting on the couch. Thanks for making me smile! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Poor Robbie. Did he get into something he shouldn't have? I hope he's feeling better today. I know that you're a stud Pugsly, but I belive I inherited my sister's figure and she was a full-figured gal, so I'm doomed And did everyone forget that the camera adds 10 pounds?! I'm really much slimmer in person. Ha ha! Love to you all from Maddie and her mommie. P.S. Max the Pug a.k.a. My Pug Max suggested on my facebook page that I try ravioli to cheer me up. That Max. Such a kidder!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Glad to hear Robbie's feeling better, though sorry to hear about the bee sting. Last summer I tried to eat a bee and got stung on my lip. My grammie gave me a popsicle and I was PERFECT after that! I like that Frankie is industrial sized! Ha ha! My mommie is hoping that once we get to the new house that I'll be able to run around in the backyard and that will burn calories. Who knows? Maybe I'll lose an ounce or two. Hee hee. Love to all you guys from us gals!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Sorry to hear you guys are sick. Feel better soon. FOUR puggies? How fun is that? I wish I could have that many pugs around at once. I'm being very bad. Mommie and I came to visit my grammie and grampie in their camper and this morning I woke up at six and chewed up an important contract of grammie's and grampie's! Ooops. We're lucky--the campground now has internet service so we can be online! Yay! Talk to you soon!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

I was getting worried that you all might be really sick. I've also been worried about Joker. Any news on that front? As for me, I'm back in Grammie and Grampie's good graces 'cause I got a popsicle for lunch. You're right--I am lucky. All this AND a new house. Love to all you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hi guys! Thanks for the info. on the pug meetup group. I don't regularly attend their meetups since Pittsburgh is difficult to get around in even though it's only about 20-30 minutes away. I do go to their yearly pugfest, which used to be held in October but will be held in June this year. We're going to try to get to that, but the date will be around the time we'll be moving. Maddie hasn't been to one because she was sick the first year. Maybe once we move to Washington (PA, that is, not D.C.!) we'll be able to go more often. Plus now that we have a GPS, we may be able to travel more easily. BTW, keep after pugspot about having that nasty posting removed. Talk to you soon!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

OH, I didn't think you were pestering us at all. We keep meaning to go to meetups, but on Saturdays Mommie is usually tired from work and she also has some health problems that make her tired. You're right--Washington is only about 25 or 30 minutes from where we live now in Belle Vernon. Washington is still close to Mommie's work, only about a 30 minute . She works in California (the city, not the state!) so it will only take her about 15 more minutes and it's only highway driving. We're very excited. Gotta go! Grampie and Grammie wanna take me for a ride on the golf cart. Hip, hip, hooray! Love from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Yay! You had popsicles. I just had a popsicle and we got pictures. We're working on uploading them now, so you'll be able to check me out! After next week, it's back to work! Love from me, Mommie, Grammie, and Grampie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hi guys! Glad to hear you got cookies AND carrots AND popsicles. Grammies are good for that kind of stuff. Sounds like you guys scored big time. I love the term S&P's. We just got back home today and boy are we tired. While camping, I met lots of dogs and saw lots of old friends: a pug/jack russel mix and his brother who was a pug and bulldog mix, Mollie the service and therapy dog (she goes to hospitals to cheer people up!), a baby pug pup, a Yorkie named Bucky (my grammie and his mommie are friends) who I took pictures with and put on my site. But my pug friend Belle wasn't there 'cause they moved to New Jersey. I miss her. It's been quite a week but now back to house-buying paperwork and packing for mommie and napping on the couch for me. Next Wednesday we close on our house (paws crossed) and the week after that the movers come to move big stuff. During that week in between, Mommie and some of her friends will move as much as they can on their own. Me, I'll just be chillin' with a cold drink. Hope you're all having an excellent day! Luv from us gals to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hooray for Daddie! Hooray for Uncle David! Hooray for popsicles and air conditioning! Hooray for Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie! Glad to hear you are all feeling better! Hugs right back to all of you! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie, Like you, napping is becomming my favorite indoor sport. I'm not doing much but supervising the packing as I recline on the couch (where a good pug should be, right?!) You're correct about the move. We close on Wednesday and today my mommie got a last minute call close to 4:00 about some paperwork that got overlooked. She was a bit frustrated so we both ran to Staples to fax the papers in. We're both freaked out, especially since Mommie's been trying to get them to verify that they had everything. Sorry for the rant. Thanks for listening. Hope you guys are having fun with each other. I would LOVE to get a sister or brother but I don't think that's gonna happen! Stay cool--in both senses of the word! Pug hugs to all of you fantastic fellas! Love, Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Guys, you are sooooo right. Buying a house makes just moving look like a vacation (well, almost). It's not my mommie who's reluctant for me to get a sister (though she has a couple of doubts). My grammie, who watches me when my mommie has to go out of town, says she can't handle any more than me. (Hmmmm, I wonder why she said that?) Since I don't want to be boarded and would rather visit Grammie and Grampie, I guess I'll have to be an only pug. Hope you guys are having fun with each other, playing, snorting, and snoring! Love from us girls. (P.S. Please EVERYONE--even Daddie--cross your paws that the house closing goes well tomorrow!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Pugsly, Frankie, Robbie, and Daddie, Well, the 2 days before the closing and the morning of the closing were a nightmare! The realtor says it was the worst he had in 20 years. But thanks to all of your crossed paws, we FINALLY got our house. Today we started moving small stuff and will continue to do so until next week, when the movers come for the big stuff. So far, my favorite places are the backyard, in front of the sliding glass door leading to the deck, and looking out the front door. Thanks again for your good wishes! More later! Love from Maddie !

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Boys, thanks for your good wishes. It was a rough few days because the guys at the mortgage company screwed up. I don't have a pugmobile either but I do have my grampie's golf cart. Keep those paws crossed--you guys are our good luck charms! Talk to you soon! Maddie (and her mommie)

If you guys get another pug and I don't, I'll be soooo jealous. Still moving stuff every day and I'm learning all the different rooms and levels of the house. The backyard is filled with flowers that I love to inspect and dogs live next door to me on either side, (though no pugs.) Hope you guys are having fun and staying out of trouble! Love from Maddie!

Hi guys, I'm having a lot of fun. Yesterday, I stayed in the house with Grammie and she couldn't find me. She ran upstairs and down calling "Maddie, Maddie" and I was asleep on the bed downstairs! Ha ha! I tricked her! Pug hugs to you all! Maddie

Hello boys! I am having fun in the new house but I'm still getting used to it. Mommie and I stayed there the last two nights. It's much bigger than what I'm used to and I can get into lots more mischief. Already I've had TWO playdates with Jake, the non-barking beagle from next door. He comes into my fenced yard and we chase each other then drink out of the same water bowl. I wish you guys could run around with us. We'd have TONS of fun. We have rain too, so I'm helping Mommie move more stuff today. The movers come for the big stuff on Thursday. Talk to you soon. Have fun with each other! Love from us girls to you guys!

Hi guys, I think ice cream would be PERFECT for father's day. That way, EVERYONE can share the treat. Until you said father's day is for grampies, too, I was feeling a little sad cause I don't have a daddie but now I feel better. Since we last spoke, we got completely moved from the old house to the new one and finally got cable and internet this morning. Yay! We still haven't found the camera, though. I also met my other dog neighbors, Maxie and Trixie. Trixie is a little mean but Maxie came over for a play date. We're all exhausted but happy! Hope you boys are enjoying the wonderful summer and that you all have a wonderful father's day. Give your daddie our best wishes for being such a good daddie! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

What's up guys? A meetup sounds great. We have a pugfest tomorrow but we're all so exhausted from the move and it will be so hot that we may not go, plus Grammie and Grampie have to go back home. Mommie and I may go but we have to see how the weather is and how we feel. She's been a little worn out lately. We'll be thinking of you boys and hoping you take extra special care of Daddie on Father's Day! Pug hugs from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Glad the meetup was fun. I know what you mean about noisy food. Glad to hear you scored a burger, Frankie. Did you share? We probably won't go to the pugfest since my mommie's not feeling well. I'll pass those smooches along and send some back to all of you from me and my mommie! Have a happy pug father's day, Daddie. Love to you all!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Wow! Baskin-Robbins sounds great. Sounds like an excellent father's day for ALL of you. Glad everyone got treats and snuggles. Mommie is feeling better today because I snuggled her last night. I guess I'm the perfect medicine. Imagine if there was three of me, like you guys! Thanks for sending her good wishes. Love back to all of you! Maddie and Mommie!

Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hi Guys! I think I got a little flustered with the change in houses, plus having people around moving boxes made me confused. I'm working on being better and this morning I went potty on my pee pad holder (I'm not allowed to have pee pads 'cause I rip and eat them!) Thanks for your support, encouragement, and advice. Love to all of you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Thanks guys. Mommie had a friend over to see the new house and when we went out to see the backyard, I went potty like I'm supposed to and I got a treat. I think I'm going to be doing better. I just need to get used to the new house. It's overwhelming since it's so much bigger than what we're used to. Thanks for all of your love and support! Have a wonder pug-riffic day!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Ha, ha. Frankie, that's funny. I guess you had a lot to say. My sister Rosie used to bark at everything and nothing at all. I'm completely different. I rarely bark--and I think that's why the new neighbors like me so much. The guy next door said I'm a doll (his dogs bark a lot)--and I like him already! Enjoy your day and each other. Be careful outside if it's as hot there as it is here! We're staying inside the air-conditioned house! Love and hugs to you all from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Glad you guys had a fun time at the park. My mommie had to leave me in my pen for the first time in the new house and I threw up. I also pooped on the bathroom floor this morning before she left. I guess I'm not making the progress everyone had hoped for. But I did pee on my square through the night and outside when my mommie got home. You guys keep that air conditioning running and stay coooooool. Love from Maddie the Baddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

We slept in today and then my mommie took me outside to go potty. I did really well, and no more throwing up. Maybe I just got a little worked up being left along in the new place. Hope you guys are staying nice and cool. It's gonna be another hot one, so we'll probably stay inside and work (well, Mommie will work and I'll lay on the couch!) Love you guys, Maddie (and her mommie)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello to all you guys, Hee, hee! A two popsicle day--I like that. My treat today was a little bowl of carrots and green beans. I LOVE them, but now that you mention popsicles, I think I may have to beg for one of those. Thanks for the great idea! Stay coooooooool. Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Wow! You guys scored big with ALL those treats. I'm certain us being so cute is what gets us goodies. No wonder you all did so well since you're so adorable, right? I score big when my grammie and grampie are around but they left last Sunday and my mommie is a bit stricter about food (no toast for breakfast, sandwich for lunch, and pizza for dinner!) Mommie is the one who has to face the vet! I'm not surprised you were listening to Daddie. Today, Mommie put the garbage disposal on and my head turned and turned! Stick close to the air conditioner today! Love ya! Maddie and her mommie! P.S. I DID get a popsicle yesterday--an orange one! Yum!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Poor Pugsly! I'm so sorry you don't feel well. Once I got sick and the vet said to boil chicken and mix it with rice. Let us know if that helps. Hang in there, Daddie. I'm sure he'll be fine but please keep an eye on him and keep us updated on his status. Kisses and wags to all you boys from Maddie and her mommie (well, except for the wags!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Pugsly (and Robbie, Frankie, and Daddie!) so glad to hear that you are feeling better. I always worry when anyone gets sick. Please be careful in this HOT weather--I predict a three popsicle day today. Mommie's gonna work inside (she's still unpacking) and I'll be supervising from the couch. I didn't get a popsicle yesterday but I did get more carrots and beans when I asked for them (I do that by scratching on my bowl--Mommie taught me that when I was a baby 'cause she said no one here needs to have an empty tummy!) Hope you guys have a fun but safe day: remember, no running around in the heat. Love to all you boys from us girls! Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

So glad to hear you're feeling better, Pugsly. I hope Robbie and Frankie are feeling tip-top as well. We had a horribly hot day but I met more neighbors on a potty break: 4 chiuauas (sp?) named Prince, Princess, Duke, and Duchess. Their mommie called them the royal family. They always bark hello from their fence to mine. How did you manage to score yogurt AND bananas? MMMMMMM. I bet you guys knocked your daddie over with all the love you have for him. I pushed my mommie out of bed last night and she ended up sleeping on the couch! Ha ha! I'm feeling a bit naughty today! Love to all you terrific guys from Maddie the Baddie (and her mommie)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hey Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie! I like the idea of yogurt treats--oooops, I mean freezies. Does Daddie freeze regular yogurt containers or does he buy the yogurt already on a stick? I need to know what to write on our grocery list for Mommie to buy. My grammie and grampie are coming to visit tomorrow and help my mommie do house stuff. It's a good thing my grampie only works two days a week--he's semi-retired. I'll be eating good for the next couple of days! Yay! Hope you guys are all feeling well and staying as cool as you can! Love you all from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Thanks for sharing your freezies recipe. I'm gonna get my mommie right on that. I am eating good today; Grammie made us 'ghetties and meatballs! Yumeeeee! I sat by her chair and she kept giving me sneaks! Love to Pugsly (what's your nickname?), Frank-N-Stuf (haha!), and Robbie Dude! Your nicknames are great. (I get called all sorts of things!) Love from Maddie

RosienMikeysMom (about 7 years ago)

pugsly, frankie & robbie...so glad you liked the frozen yogurt treats...aren't they yummy?! mommy is always coming up with something to keep us spoiled ! i'm sure your daddy does the same...ahhh, the life of a pug! pug hugs, rosie and mikey

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Dear Puggy Wuggy (that's SO cute!), Frank-n-Stuf, and Robbie Dude, sounds like you're scoring big with freezies. I guess it pays to be responsible (but I wouldn't know). My next door neighbor friends Maxie and Trixie (brother and sister) and Jake (Beagle neighbor on the other side) all came over to play today. We ran and jumped in the flowers then Grammie tried to yell at us, but she didn't have the heart to scold us. I was cuddling Grampie earlier tonight and I had Appleby's for supper. I hope your daddie's car is okay and that the accident wasn't serious. I was SO glad to hear that Joker is back! He must have a guardian angel! Love to all of you from Maddie (I'm gonna go try to scam some ice cream from Grammie and Grampie!) Have a terrific day!

RosienMikeysMom (about 7 years ago)

oh pugsly...we are all so happy that your buddy, joker, was found!!! we love happy endings. lesson learned, never give up hope! we're sure you will all be playing together real soon...pug hugs..carol, rosie and mikey

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hi Pugsly and boys, I got my ice cream last night--3 different flavors, one from each person! My grammie and grampie left earlier today and I'm a little bit sad (no more goodies--plus I love them!) and I'm very tired. I slept most of the day and am going back to sleep now. We're sending our love to our favorite guys! from Maddie (and her mommie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Zoomies! Ha ha! You guys make me laugh soooo hard! I need a bath, too. My grammie kept telling me I smell! We haven't had fireworks yet. Tomorrow night (the 4th) our neighbors (Jake's mom and dad) are having a party and my grammie, grampie, and Mommie's friend from work are all invited. They told us we can all see the fireworks really well from all of our decks! Jake and I played tonight and Jake dug a hole in our new yard. His mommie yelled and yelled but he kept digging. Jake may be a bad influence on me but we have sooo much fun! Hope you guys have an excellent 4th of July! It will be hot so keep the popsicles handy! Lots of hugs and love from us girls to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello boys! Jake came over earlier, when it was still cool out, and no more digging! We were both good. It's very hot so we're also napping. I guess great minds think alike, right?! Hope you guys are enjoying your lazy day. I know I am. I did do one bad thing: my mommie was putting boxes in the attic of the new house and I sneaked up behind her. She still doesn't know how I managed the narrow little steps. She said I'm part goat! Love to you guys from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Happy, happy 4th of July, boys! Hope you're staying cool. Party later and fireworks. I'll probably bark the whole time! Glad you got your freezies. Love to you from us!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hi Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie (plus Daddie, of course!) Glad to hear you got through the fireworks. It was hot, hot, hot yesterday and today and is gonna stay that way. Yuck. Jake wanted me to come out and play today but his mommie told him it was too hot for me. I rather enjoyed the fireworks (at least I wasn't scared and didn't bark! Jake hid and was shaking all over, poor boy!) We watched them from our new deck and I fell asleep in Mommie's arms. It was a good night. Love and pug hugs to all you guys from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Wowie! TWO pug meetups?! That will be EXCELLENT and you'll be sure to meet tons of excellent pugs. Even though I was good during the fireworks, last night I was bad and kept barking at the garbage outside. My mommie put me up for auction on facebook for a nickel--but when one of her friends offered the nickel, she changed her mind! Guess she DOES love me--a little! Please stay cool and have lots and lots of fun! Love from the girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hi guys! I'm back in Mommie's good graces again--no more auction. Whew! It's funny--I'm not usually a barker, only when I'm really happy and playing (and that's more of a yip) and only when I'm really MAD (that's how I felt about the garbage last night--and the garbage collectors were no where in sight!) Hey, I help my mommie with laundry, too. I steal hangers then I chew on them! I hope you're more of a help to your daddie than I am to my mommie on laundry day! Pug hugs from us to all of you guys! Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hi guys! Next to helping with laundry, I like chasing the dust mop best! I also like the swiffer when it squirts on the floor. Glad the weather is cooling down. It's still terribly hot here but is supposed to get cooler. I was inside most of the day in the pen 'cause my mommie had to drive a friend to the airport but then she came home and now we're playing! I wish we could have a play date! Tell your daddie to give you extra treats anyway, just 'cause I asked him to! Please Daddie! Pug hugs to all! Love, Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

I bet you guys were a real help to Daddie and I'm glad you got extra treats. Just let me know when you want more and I'll ask him to PLEEEEEASE give you treats. You can feel free to do the same with my mommie! You're welcome Pugsly and Robbie and Frankie, I'm sending you FOUR high fives! Stay cool and have lots of fun! Love ya from Maddie (and her mommie)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello Boys! I tried to you each 3 virtual treats so I hope you got them (and I wish they could be real ones!) My mommie lectured me for 15 minutes straight today about the difference between me being a help or a hindrance (I was eating boxes!). I fell asleep while she was talking, which she said made me a BIG HELP! The good news is that when I was asleep, she got TONS of work done and lots more boxes unpacked. Yay! She found a bunch of toys that used to belong to my sister Rosie (before she died ) so now I get to have them! Hope you made it to the park and thanks for having Daddie suggest to my mommie that she give me treats! Hooray to Daddy for suggesting it and to Mommie for giving them to me! Have fun!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Pugsly and the boys! You're right! My mommie's doing lots of hard work to make the house livable. That's why I went to sleep yesterday: so she could work all day! Ha ha! Thanks for the treats and sorry you didn't get to go to the park. I've been inside a LOT since it's been so hot. I laughed about Daddie teaching you to put your toys away. I know how to take mine OUT of the toy boxes but not back IN! I'm gonna try to be careful with Sister's toys but I think she would want me to enjoy them, right?! Have a pug-tastic day, guys! Love ya! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello Guys! I'm so excited about the pug rescue meetup--always the chance you could come home with an extra pug (or at least a full tummy!) We were a bit lazy yesterday. Mommie had to go to the grocery store and she couldn't find ANYTHING because it was so BIG inside. She did find the ice cream and doggie toys, so that was good. Be sure to let me know how your day goes (and if you come home with a brother or sister!) Love ya from Maddie (and her mommie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hooray, the pug event was a success. Don't give up on getting a sister. I'll convince Daddie that I'm such a good girl that he'll want a female pug in a minute! What sorts of goodies did you score? Our neighbors have 4 chiuauas (sp?) and a little pool, but I'm not sure if it's for the dogs or the lady who lives there--or both. Frankie must be full adventurous to go into his pool. My mommie thought of getting me one, but she doesn't know if I'll use it. Maybe we'll try one this summer. Mommie did squirt me with the hose when she was watering our flowers and I JUMPED in the air. I wasn't expecting it. Well, gotta go. We haven't eaten supper yet and it's almost 8:00 pm! Have a great day! Love to you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

You guys are too funny. When my sister Rosie was alive, my mommie had a friend who, when Mommie lectured Rosie, used to sing, "Rosie's gettin' in trouble, Rosie's gettin' yelled at" like he was about 5 years old. I wasn't there but it sounded kinda funny. I guess even though I'm not there, I can imagine what these scenes look like. I can just picture all you guys being bad and your daddie TRYING to be serious . . . . ha ha! Have fun--and TRY to stay out of trouble!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

I can't wait till you guys get a sister. She'll be so cute all dressed up. Do you have a name for her yet? Jake was over this morning but when he smelled his mom making breakfast, he asked to go home (he does this by standing by the gate--the same way I "ask" to be let in by standing by the door or "ask" for more food by scratching my bowl!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Oh, Abby is a GREAT name. One of my mommie's former students named his baby girl Abigail Grace. It's such a sweet name, a name for a little girlie pug who gets to wear frilly dresses. Glad to hear you didn't get any lectures today. I was good for part of the day and bad for the rest. I got a variation of the helpful vs hindrance lecture. This one was the good citizen vs. bad citizen speech (I think it's the same one!) Check out my photos (my mommie was only able to get a few because I was being a bad citizen!) Love you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello Boys, I haven't seen any bunnies yet, but we have tons of butterflies ('cause there's lots of flowers) and lots of birds ('cause Jake's mommie and daddie have a birdfeeder). We didn't get too much done today but nap. There was a beautiful breeze and my mommie and I both feel asleep. Oooops. More photos if I decide to cooperate. My mommie is now calling me Dolittle 'cause she says it fits! I wonder what THAT means?! Have fun! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Robbie, sounds like you ARE the man! Good work. As for me helping around the house, well, I thought napping WAS helping. We're going to work on getting more photos of me and the house but I have to be in the right mood for a photo shoot. I'm a bit of a diva. Have fun and enjoy playing with each other! Robbie, keep everyone in line! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Yikes! 100 is waaaaaaaay too hot. We finally got rain last night so things cooled off a bit. I also got a popsicle! It was grape and VERY delicious. Great minds think alike, I guess! Stay cool and have fun playing with each other! Love ya! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hey Guys! It was waaaaay too hot here yesterday and will be again today. Yesterday Mommie took me with her to get the oil changed in the car, then she took me to petsmart. I thought I was getting a prize but instead I got furminated, my teeth brushed, my ears cleaned, and my NAILS CUT! I was so angry I came home and ripped a hole in one of her favorite blankets. I'm still not speaking to her. I think I'll stay in bed all day. Keep the popsicles handy! Love ya right back! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

I was so mad I stayed in bed until 11:30 but I'm not angry anymore. I AM a spoiled monster. How did you know I'm a diva? I have a tag on my harness that says so! I now realize my mommie was just trying to take care of me. She bought me lots of prizes while I was with the groomer. Today I helped her while she worked by playing nicely with sister's toys--and I didn't rip a single one (though I did chew a couple more holes in some boxes.) Hope you guys are staying cool--ask for popsicles--tell Daddie I said PLEASE! Love from Maddie the Baddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Dear Robbie, since you are so responsible, I may call on you to help me keep Maddie in line. Keep up the good work! Love from Maddie's mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello guys! Hope this note finds you cool and happy. We are about to have a storm so we'll be stuck inside. I'm working very hard on not being a diva-- although I still haven't gotten out of bed yet (I'm dictating this to my mommie from under a blanket!) Once I get up, though, I plan on playing with all my new toys (well, they're new to ME!) Gotta go. Mommie needs to put popsicles on our grocery list! Love to all you guys from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Poor boys. I guess yesterday was just a bad day all around. My mommie woke up with a migraine and couldn't play for the ENTIRE day. Plus it was sooooo hot that we couldn't go outside anyway. I played with some of my new toys and TRIED to be good but those darn cardboard boxes were calling me to chew on them. My grammie says that's just my way of helping to unpack. Hope your daddie remembered to buy the popsicles and yogurt. I had one popsicle last night. I'm gonna try to get my mommie to go to the store today for some goodies! Licks, wags, and pants right back at you 3 hot pugs (and Daddie, of course!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello boys! Mommie is feeling better today; thanks for asking. We had another slow day today since she's still not feeling perfect. She didn't make it to the store but she had some special treats hidden away that she surprised me with. Yay! How did you and Frankie walk by yourselves? You mean without leashes?! Wow! I can do that now in my new yard and it's lots of fun but I can't do it outside the fence. Hope you all have a great day, too (including Daddie!) Talk to you soon! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hi guys! I'm REALLY impressed that you can be let free like that. I'm waaaaaay too bad and would get into some sort of mischief. I'm more like Robbie in that I would RUN! I also like to sniff the bushes and trees. Our new yard doesn't have any trees but has TONS of flowers. The people who lived here did lots of remodeling in the house and planting outside the house. We even have a meditative garden in the back and that's great to poke around in. Have a WONDERFUL day! Pug hugs and kisses to you all! Maddie. P.S. I did a bad thing yesterday. I scratched a hole in the screen in the sliding glass doors out to the deck. Even my grampie agreed I should get put in the pen for that one (but I didn't!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

My grammie and grampie came to visit and Grampie fixed the screen. He NEVER yells at me. He even let me help him. I'm sitting on his lap right now, cuddling. I don't think I'll be getting a sister anytime soon, though. Glad to hear you got to the park--and even more glad to hear you went to Dairy Queen! Yuuuuuuummmmmmmyyyyyyy! I sent some virtual treats to all of you (not as good as a real Dairy Queen treat, I know!) Gotta go. We're painting my fence--and it's not fun! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Wow guys! You got lots and lots of treats. Pizza AND ghettis! MMMMMMM! I was VERY good today (my grammie said so) so I got lots of treats: bites of hamburger, fries, watermelon. I also got to show my grammie and grampie how I play with sister's old toys. They just laugh and laugh but they miss her (so it's good they have me to love and spoil!) Today Grampie and Mommie painted our fence (part of it anyway) and Grammie played and napped with me. Glad you enjoyed being furminated! Talk to you soon. Good luck with scoring more treats! Love and kisses from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

OH, no, Robbie! Did you get the good citizen/bad citizen lecture? Maybe you were just upset about something? I'm sure you didn't mean to be bad. Daddie, please don't be angry with Robbie. Glad to hear the pugmobile is fixed. Hope you were good while Daddie was gone. My Grampie and Mommie painted again all morning and Grammie took care of me. We went on the deck, then the patio, then the couch! Grammie and Grampie left at lunchtime so they could go to the casino here in town! They like slot machines. I think THAT'S why they visit so much, that and they help a lot with the house! Hope you guys are having a super day! Love from Maddie (I need another nap--I'm worn out from my company!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello Boys! Glad to hear all is well. I knew Robbie didn't mean to be bad. One reason my grammie was watching me was so I didn't get black paint all over me. My mommie is covered in it and even turpentine won't take it off. Her hands look like she's been working on car engines! The other night, we saw FOUR deer from our deck: one big one and three baby ones. Coooooool. More friends for ME! Here's something funny: my next door neighbor likes to bring her dogs (Trixie and Maxie) over then rub what she calls my Buddha belly. She didn't know my mommie already called it that! You're right: all is good in the world today! Good thought for the day! Love and kisses from Madison Rose

Hey guys! Ha ha. When Daddie gets furminated, be sure to film it 'cause I'd love to see THAT! It was sooo hot here yesterday, too. We stayed in the cool house and my mommie worked on stuff for her job and I napped. Sounds like you met lots of friends to play with. Mommie's paint is fading on her hands but she has to start painting again when the weather cools. I was too hot to even finish my dinner. Tell Daddie to rub your buddha bellies for good luck! Stay cool! Love from Maddie (p.s. Yesterday my grammie called and said it was a two-popsicle day! She also met a pug puppy in their neighborhood named Callie. Can't wait to meet her!)

Spoiled? You three? That's like saying I'M spoiled and we all know THAT'S not true! Ha ha. Your grammie's right. My mommie says I'm just well loved. (Boy do we have THEM fooled!) We have to wait till we visit Grammie and Grampie to meet the new pug puppy. Frankie, I bark at cats, too. Mommie's been working hard on book orders and such but SHE'S the one who's spoiled. She likes having the summer off and STILL getting paid! One of her students sent her a facebook message to say she's gonna be in another one of mommie's classes and can't wait to see my mommie. I think the girl was just sucking up, don't you?! Stay cool if you can and look sad so Daddie gives you popsicles. Love from Maddie (and her mommie)

Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

I'm impressed--Pugsly in charge and Robbie second in command. I hope Frankie had some kind of title, too. The only thing I'm in charge of is my pen. A play date with Murphy sounds fun. I haven't had any play dates since it's been so hot that we've had to stay in the house. The girl who sent my mommie a message is nice and she's a good student so she'll probably do well in class again. When she asked about me, my mommie said I'm tearing up the new house and this girl said, "sounds like Maddie hasn't changed a BIT! Ha ha!" Hope you have a TERRIFIC day! Love from Maddie the Baddie (and her mommie, too!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

It was hot here, too. Jake and I had a playdate when his mommie and daddie came home for lunch. After that, I fell asleep on the couch upstairs and my mommie fell asleep on the couch downstairs. That's the FIRST time that ever happened. We always nap together. I think she's trying to get me to see what it will be like for me to be alone in the house. Before we know it, she'll be back to work (but her boss said, don't worry--we have a whole month left!) Today, I had dinner theatre: I put my head on my bowl of food and scratched and looked sad--and the bowl was FULL. Mommie thinks I just want attention. My grampie said I should be arrested for overacting! Have a good day and stay cool. Licks and wags to you three puggies from Maddie (and her mommie sends love, too!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hey guys! Yeah, I tend to be a bit dramatic when I get bored. Maybe I can enroll in acting classes and make movies! Jake and I didn't play too long since it was so hot but we did have fun (except Jake digs holes in the yard and my mommie has to chase him!) What's funny about me and my mommie napping in different places is that I'm usually close to her, too. Oh, well, I have to be good today. The electrician is coming to fix the spa tub and I'm gonna want to try "helping" him! Ha ha! Love and pug hugs from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hi again guys! I've had a rough, rough day. I've been in the cage (not even the pen!) since about noon (and it's now 4:00!) because I was annoying the electrician. Bad news: the problem is not covered under warranty PLUS he has to make ANOTHER appointment to finish the job next week. That means I may never be free. At least the final bill won't be too high (Mommie is beginning to calll the new house "The Money Pit!") My mommie hasn't put me in the tub yet so we don't know if I'm afraid of the water or not. If I do, Frankie and I could have a good time together. See you at the awards! You can be my guests. I'll be sure to thank you in my acceptance speech! Love from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hi guys! Good to hear from you. Thanks for your support. The electrician started off mean (he apologized and said it was because the situation with the tub was frustrating) and my mommie was ready to throw him out (she doesn't let ANYONE be mean to me!) He got nicer when he found out that Jake's mommie and daddie had a job he really wanted (after being mean, he actually asked my mommie to put a good word in for him! We'll see!) Anyway, I'm used to helping. My grampie ALWAYS lets me help and he NEVER yells at me. He's very patient. Mommie says she remembers that movie The Money Pit but didn't think it would happen to her. We had a 200 dollar electric bill! At least our new kitchen was remodeled before we bought the house. Hard day of napping--I like that. At least you guys understand me and the life of a pug! Have a good one. Love ya from the girls. P.S. Mommie has to take the car to get inspected today then she's off to dinner with a friend. That means the pen for me but also a doggie bag Boo then yay!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hey boys! It was cooler here, too, and we napped away the day then went outside and played in the yard! Hooray for trips to the park and for carrot treats! I'm gonna try to scam some green beans later since I haven't had them in a while! Have a pug-wonderful day! From Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello fellow puggers! Exactly! I had to supervise the electrician. After all, my grampie calls me "boss" and I take my title seriously! The pugmobile (or beast, as Mommie calls it) passed inspection--Yay. But like the mechanic said, the car's only 2 years old and only has about 14,000 miles. As for the electric bill, we HAVE to have the air conditioning on (though we sometimes turn it off at night if it cools down). I'll be sure to take good care of the house, particularly since a doggie bag will be arriving and how good I am is in direct proportion to how many yummies I get! I'll let you know what I manage to score! Have fun! love and hugs from Maddie (and her mommie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hey Boys! Let's face it: we're pugs so we're ALL bosses, right?! I scored big time. I got 'oli (which translates to ravioli!) It was lip-smackin' good and I kept hanging around the kitchen last night trying to get more. Word on the streets is we're having it again tonight (I guess servings were BIG at this particular restaurant!) That's nice you each get Daddie time. I'm afraid I'll NEVER get that sister I asked for 'cause I'm too much to handle. Stay cool and have a GREAT day! Licks and barks from Maddie! P.S. One of my mommie's friends thinks I need my own reality show! Would you watch? We could ALL be on tv together!!! Yay!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

OH, poor Pugsly. I'm sure you didn't mean to poop on the floor. Accidents happen. I understand the pen and time outs and I especially understand the good citizen/bad citizen speech. Please, Daddie, don't be angry with Pugsly. Pugsly, those moo eyes should work. And tell Daddie that my sister had an obedience teacher who told Mommie not to hold a grude 'cause dogs don't understand that. Daddie loves you--he was just frustrated. We had 'oli's again last night so I didn't eat my dog food. Oooops. Try to be good, Pugsly. Remember that we all still love you! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hey, guys! I forgot to tell you: big drama last night. I went out on the deck and barked and screamed like crazy (and I NEVER bark or scream). It turns out Jake was in his yard playing with Lil Bit (who I don't like 'cause he growled at my mommie the first day we met him!) Anyway, my mommmie wanted me to make friends so everyone came over and I got to meet Lil Bit slowly. Before you know it, we were all running around and playing together. Mommie says I need to be nice when friends come over and to give everyone a chance! Hope you're all having a good day and that you're out of trouble, Pugsly! Licks and wags from Maddie the Baddie (p.s. I love your ideas for a tv show! You guys can play my best friends!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Dear Pugsly, Frankie, and Robbie! Yay! Meatball sandwich! My mommie almost ordered that the other night (it was a toss up between 'olis and meatball sandwich!) Cloudy with a chance of meatballs--haha! Wouldn't that be a dream come true?! I saw commercials for that! When Mommie runs the dust mop, I chase it and bite it! Chicken AND gold star! Sounds like a great day! It's cooler today so we may be able to play outside. Love to all you guys! Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Pugsly, Frankie, Robbie, (and tired Daddie!) Sounds like you guys had loads of fun yesterday! Here's something funny--right now Jake is outside my fence and I'm in the front window and he's crying for me!!! How silly he is! I feel like Juliet! Ice cream sounds good--I haven't had any of that in a while. Maybe I'll convince my mommie that's what my treat should be. Jake's still crying so I gotta go! Hope you guys have a terrific day with lots and lots of playtime! Love ya, Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Ha ha! Frankie found a mud puddle! I can just picture him rolling around and just loving it! Funny, my mommie was thinking of giving me a bath today but we both fell asleep. It sounds like fun going to see Baer AND Aunt Robin. I'll bet you that all of you will get lots and lots of treats! Does Daddie give you burritos? My mommie only gives me the tortilla part and not the spicy part! Yummmmm! Hope you all have a GREAT time! Tell everyone we said hi! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hi Boys! Good job on scoring the treats! Sometimes Jake and I run in Mommie's flowers: sometimes she scoots us out of there and sometimes she lets us go. It depends on how much damage we're doing. Frankie, I'm so sorry to hear about your infection. Did you get it from the mud puddle? Tell Daddie I said you need lots of treats to heal you! Please! Ha ha! Just be sure to do what the doctor and Daddie say so you get better. The park sounds like fun. Mommie said she spend most of today looking for me--and the day's not even over! Sometimes I lay down to rest and I fall asleep. Good thing I breathe and snore loudly so she can find me. Today she ran up and down the steps THREE times until she found me! Ha ha! Have a fun day and we'll talk soon! Love from Maddie the Baddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Ha ha! You are so funny with the breaking news! I guess you won't see one of those bulletins coming from me anytime soon. I'll never get a gold star so thanks for my treats. Even my grammie is saying that I'm spoiled and that my mommie should put me in the pen. Wow! I thought Grammie had my back!!! Glad to hear that Frankie's doing better. When we clean up pug hair, we always says we could build an extra pug because there's so much fur. Hope your supper was DELICIOUS! Love and hugs from Maddie the Baddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Thanks for your encouraging words but my grammie said the same thing about me again today. She's not being mean and she still loves me; she just says I'm spoiled. The funny thing is this: whenever Grammie calls and my mommie's telling her how bad I've been, I suddenly get good. Grammie will be coming for a visit (we'll go get her Thursday and bring her back to our house) so we'll see how much she spoils me (it will be a LOT!) Then Grampie will come during the weekend. Right now, I'm having a quiet day on the couch--whichever one happens to be nearby (there's one upstairs and one down). Hope you guys are all enjoying your day! Feel better, Frankie! Love from Maddie the BADDIE!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello guys! My grammie talks a good game but she NEVER disciplines me. All of this talk is happening over the phone. When we're face-to-face, forget it! I RULE! I've been chanting, "pugs rule; we are cool" to remain empowered! I bet those oli's were delish! Yummy! Sorry to hear about the computer trouble. I hope it's not serious--or expensive. We HOPE to hear from you guys soon and hope you're feeling better, Frankie! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hey guys! I still like chanting "pugs rule; we are cool!" Glad to hear your wrinkle is doing better, Frankie. We have sniffies is our yard, so I have fun out there exploring (though today was sooooo hot I ran out, went potty, then ran right to the door to go back inside!) I don't know what's on our menu tonight, either, but I hope my mommie's got something good planned (though I may have to wait 'til Grammie gets here tomorrow for yummy food 'cause Mommie's a lousy cook!) When we go get my grammie, I get to sit in front 'cause that's where my dog seat is--and my grammie has to sit in the back--ha ha! We call her Miss Daisy! Hope you guys are staying cool and having fun! Love and hugs from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello Boys! Ha ha ha! I bet Daddie jumped a mile when he felt that ice cube! Pizza sounds yummie. Grammie said in the car she's been hungry for pizza so we may get that for supper. Where we live now, there's lots and lots of restaurants so now we have choices. Grammie heard all of your messages and she laughed and laughed. We had a good trip going to and from Grammie and Grampie's. It was sad leaving Grampie, and I gave him a big HUG. I think he'll be happy that all the girls are gone and he can nap and watch what HE wants to see on tv. I pictured all you guys riding in the car with the wind in your ears--all 6 of them! Stay cool and keep on having fun! Love and hugs from Maddie, Mommie, and Grammie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Happy Friday to my favorite pug guys! Actually, I wasn't tired from the trip 'cause I slept the whole time! It only takes 1 1/2 hours from the new house to Grammie and Grampie's and on the way back I got to ride on Grammie's lap. Tomorrow Grampie will drive up. We DID get pizza last night! MMMMMMMMMM! I'm going to try to post some funny pictures of me so be sure to check them out and don't laugh too hard! Tell Robbie that Grammie and I were playing with ice on the deck last night. Love to you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hey Guys! It's been getting really hot today. My mommie and grampie were painting the fence again and Grammie and Grampie just left so I am lounging on the couch, exhausted. I'm sure Daddie does NOT look like the Michelin Man but tell him that my mommie lost about 50 pounds last year, mostly by eating chicken. She had to buy all new clothes since she went down about 6 or 7 sizes. So glad to hear you guys are working on getting a new computer. Hope you are all staying cool and having fun, fun, fun! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hello Pugsly, Frankie, Robbie (and Daddie!) We're having a slow day today since we're worn out from the weekend. Mommie may not have to paint today since it's too hot and the paint won't spread right. Your walk sounds like fun, playing with Princess AND the kids! The other night, Trixie and Maxie were out next door and Maxie came over to play with me (Trixie's not always social so her mommie and daddie thought it best she stay on her side of the fence). He and I kissed through the fence then he came over and we chased doggie bubbles together (Mommie bought special ones that are safe for dogs!) and ran and played. I even chased my soccer ball! Tell Daddie that my mommie got really tired of chicken, too. Try chicken wrapped in tortillas to switch things up and use lots of spices. It's a good thing you guys are there to eat the fattening stuff for him! Just remind him that you're helping HIM out! Stay cool and remember: PUGS ROCK AND RULE! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Dear Boys, I'm so sorry to hear the bad news about the computer. My mommie had to get a new one 2 summers ago so I know what you're going through. More bad news: I was stuck in the pen today while Mommie did back-to-school shopping. Does it count if she didn't buy school clothes but got shorts and other fun stuff instead? Be good for Daddie and keep yourselves cool. Have fun! Love and hugs from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hey Guys! I didn't get any new back-to-school clothes but that's okay. I have sweaters and stuff for when it gets cold. This year we'll have a fireplace. Yay! Glad your cable is working--we LOVE t.v. too much to do without it, esp. at the new house, where we have TONS of movie channels. You'll be happy when you get that new 'puter (the only other person I heard call it that was my "cousin" Kyle, Mommie's nephew, when he was a baby!) A relaxing day sounds good. Mommie's already counting down her last few days of freedom. She got spoiled having the summer off and I got spoiled having her around. Have a fun day and be good for Daddie! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Hey boys, I'm not as fond of clothes as Mommie is. She DID put down a pair of shoes and DIDN'T buy them. History was made. Right now, she has a walk-in closet that's ALL shoes! We call it the shoe closet. There are shelves and shelves full! Grammie hates it. For now, we don't have to worry about the fireplace and instead are overworking the air conditioner. Kinda slow day so Mommie and I napped. I like that: a pugcellent day! Be good boys but still have fun! Love ya, Maddie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 7 years ago)

Pugsly, Frankie, Robbie, and Daddie, we're a little worried since we haven't heard from you. Hope all is well and that you're just having computer problems. Take care! Love ya from Maddie and her mommie

MADDIE WE ARE ALL OK JUST HOT. iT WILL A WEEK OR TWO BEFORE WE GET THE COMPUTER BACK,DADDIE IS HAVING IT UP GRADED. hOPE YOU ALL ARE WELL AND MOMMIE IS READY FOR SCHOOL, AND YOU ARE BEING GOOD. DADDIE IS AT THE LIBARY WRITING THIS FOR ME. THEY WON'T LET ME IN boo HOO. TAKE CARE AND WILL WRITE LATER. LOVE PUGSLY

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Oh, I'm so glad I looked on your page. I kept checking our messages and when we didn't hear from you, we got sooooo worried and hoped the problem was only a computer one--and not something worse. Even Grammie was asking about you. We'll talk soon! Take care and we miss talking to you. Pug hugs from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

We've been terribly busy. Mommie and Grammie helped my mommie's friend with her garage sale today and I stayed home. Yuck. The good news is one of my mommie's friends came home to see the new house--and to see me--at lunchtime. We played for a while then I napped again. As a treat because I was so good, Mommie took me to petsmart. I tried on a lobster suit (HILARIOUS) but it was a bit snug. Now I'm ready for a nap! Hope all is well! Hugs and wags from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi Pugsly, Frankie, Robbie, and Daddie! We are very sad today since my grammie and grampie just left our house and my mommie starts work tomorrow. She got spoiled all summer and it will be an adjustment for both of us when she's gone. But here's a good thing: My mommie, grammie, grampie, and mommie's friend went out to lunch and they brought me shrimp! Yay! But maybe too many goodies are the reason we couldn't buy the lobster suit (it was a bit too small!) Glad to hear you got ghettis 'cause those are always goooooood! I'm not surprised to hear Frankie's a football player! Maybe he can play for Penn State (one of the schools my mommie went to) and be a Nittany Lion. Yay! You'll have to let us know what ideas you come up with for Halloween. I suspect our new neighborhood will get LOTS of trick or treaters so I can't wait. Gotta go help Mommie get her backpack packed and her books and lessons ready. I'll let you know if I get the gold star--paws crossed. Love and hugs from Maddie, Mommie, Grammie, and Grampie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hey guys! Mommie's first day of school went well except she got a parking ticket. No gold star for her. I was VERY good so I DO get a gold star. Yay for me! Don't be too tough on Grammie. I'm sure it was an accident with the tea. I have LOTS of hand puppets that used to be stuffed animals. It becomes a different toy and you'll find new games to play. Mommie would take me to school if it was allowed. Her boss LOVES me and so do the other teachers (she snuck me in once last summer). My mommie's boss has 2 dogs (the third died last year) so she LOVES dogs. Her one dog is named Bad Boy Bill OR Good Will, depending on whether he's behaving or not. Her other dog, Buster, has sent me LOVE letters but I tell him I don't want to be tied down (like my mommie!) I would love to teach pug 101. Lots of students ask about me and they wish I could come in, too. Students who take Mommie more than once are certain to ask, "How's Maddie?" It's kinda fun to be popular. Frankie, you're never too old for Penn State! Have a good day and we'll talk soon! Love from Maddie and her mommie! P.S. Mommie doesn't have any classes or meetings tomorrow so we get to spend the day together! Yay!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hello boys! Mommie and I are home together today and we slept for hours (she had a headache and me, well, I'm just lazy!) That lady sounds nice. You should go visit her. My grampie works at a nursing home and they have special dogs come in to visit the residents. I'm not certified (and probably never will be since I'm so bad!) so I can't visit. I AM friends with one of those dogs, though, and her name is Molly. I see her at the campground. I'm sure Grammie feels bad. I think that my mommie and me may be visiting Grammie and Grampie at their camper this weekend. We only got to go ONCE this whole summer (unusual for us). Guess we had too much to do with the new house. Gotta go! I need another nap and Mommie has work to do for classes tomorrow! Have fun and be well! Love ya guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hello guys! It's funny how different you all are on video. We really enjoyed watching! I don't fetch either, but I give love, too. Guess that's what pugs are built for! Sounds like we're gonna have fun weekends. You'll get to see Baer and I'll be able to see all my camping buddies. Practice your sad faces so you get lots of goodies. Glad you enjoyed my videos. Hope you are having a super great day! Mommie doesn't have classes tomorrow and no meetings so her boss told her to have a good day and she'd see her Friday! Yay! Talk to you soon. Love Maddie (and Mommie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Well, Mommie has to work on Friday (only until noon) but she doesn't have to work Tuesday, so we'll still get a long weekend. Yay. We may leave Friday afternoon or Saturday morning--we haven't decided yet. I bet Grammie will have popsicles and so much more! We've had a few lazy days, too. We'll try to take photos/videos but I have to been in the right mood. I'm a diva, as you know. Have a great day! Love and hugs from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Guys! It sounds like you had quite a day! Dog parks and meeting pugs and breakfast! You're off to a good start for the weekend. We're still at home since Mommie didn't pack yesterday plus there was a rain storm and no reason to hurry and camp in the mud (yucko!) even though my grammie and grampie have a camper. We hope Daddie is feeling better. A pug snuggle will do wonders. Woof, wag, and arf right back atcha! Love and pug hugs from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I sure wish you had that fly episode caught on video! How funny is that?! Mommie said when she was moving from Georgia back to PA a few years ago, she and my sister were packed into her car with no place for either to sit but the driver's seat. Rosie caught a fly and ATE it while Mommie was flying down the highway driving 75 mph! After she ate it, Rosie made a face! Yuck. Guess you did the right thing by opening your mouth! It's cooler today for us, too. We're at the campground and Grampie had a fire blazing. We came in, had ghettis, then Mommie and Grammie went shopping and Grampie and I napped in the camper. I saw Snickers earlier--he's a shizu (sp?) who was attacked here a few years ago. He's never been the same and is very fearful--but he knows and remembers me, so he gave me a hello smooch. I may be seeing Bucky the Yorkie tomorrow. He's been going to obedience so we'll see how good he is! Kisses from all of us to all of you. Hope you have a good weekend! Maddie, Mommie, Grammie, and Grampie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I'm still laughing about that fly! I met two new dogs yesterday named Bugsy and Bunny and they're very friendly and fun. They're from California (the state, not the city where Mommie works) and they're camping right across from us. . There's been a cold spell and everyone is freezing. We're having people over and Grammie and Grampie will be having a cookout. Bucky the Yorkie will be here, too, so he and I are certain to get into some mischief. Have fun with Baer and enjoy your holiday! Love to all of you from all of us!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hey boys, sorry to hear that Baer didn't make the BBQ, but those pug burgers sound delicious. Bucky and I played and played yesterday, then I ate his food and he ate mine. We had ribs and hot dogs and pie and EVERYTHING! It's still cool here and Mommie and I will stay one more night then drive home tomorrow so Mommie can be at work on Wednesday. We don't think you're bad. Just tell Daddie you were being inquisitive! Love to all of you from Maddie, Mommie, Grammie, and Grampie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi guys! Mommie and I just got home from our weekend and now she's running around, trying to get unpacked and organized. I'm napping on the couch. Bucky and I ate out of each other's bowls--I had his puppy chow and he had my pug food! I made a grocery list ages ago, but my mommie never goes to the store. Thank goodness Grammie packed a lot of leftovers for us! When we woke up this morning, Bugsy and Bunny were waiting for us outside of our camper. Their mommie said they refused to let them leave until they said goodbye to me. They'll be traveling back home to Palm Springs. Sounds fun. Hope you get all the groceries you asked for! Hooray for groceries! Love Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hey boys! Good to hear from you. Yes, Grammie is very generous with the food 'cause she knows Mommie hates to cook! We have no idea about a Halloween costume but the new neighborhood probably has lots of trick-or-treaters so we're gonna stock up on candy (Mommie can always give the leftovers to her students!) Let us know what costume ideas you come up with. Maybe Mommie will see if she has any of sister's old costumes that I could wear! Have a fun day! Love ya from Maddie and her mommie

I don't know how nice Mommie is. She just is afraid to have too much candy around the house. She says she never got candy from college teachers either but times have changed. Sister's old costumes might be too big. She was a full-figured gal (30 lbs.!) but my mommie says she was a sweetheart. Mommie's always telling me that I shouldn't do bad things 'cause sister was good when she was my age. Well, I like mischief. Sorry to hear that Daddie's back hurts. Be sure to give him a nice back rub and be good for him. Love ya right back! Maddie and her mommie

My grammie sneaks me candy and we always get caught by my mommie. We're gonna look at some of sister's costumes and see if any of them will fit me. Mommie is waaaaaay busy because she has to apply for tenure AND promotion this year and that requires her to make a HUGE dossier of everything she's accomplished since she got her job here at CAL. She had tenure at her last job but moved back to PA from Georgia to be closer to the family. It will be a stressful year for her. She even started giving me 2 minutes in the penalty box (my cage) when I do something bad. I spent 6 minutes tonight alone. But finally I went and laid on the couch. Hope the chiropractor fixes your daddie 'cause it's no fun when our people are hurting. My dog friend Buster had his tooth removed (he belongs to my mommie's boss) and she said he looked terrible but was well enough to eat Ben and Jerry's ice cream! ha ha! You guys have a great weekend, too! Pug hugs from Maddie!

Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi guys! Thanks for the treats. Those are the only ones I'm likely to receive (though I only got 2 minutes in the penalty box ONCE today!) My sister Rosie used to bark at the t.v. and anything and nothing at all. Mommie is glad that I'm quiet. I've been trying to help my mommie today by napping on the couch while she works (though she napped a bit, too). A promotion means not just a new title but more money and I like that (so I can go to petsmart!!!) People think professors work 3 days a week but they don't know about all the "homework" they get. She works when she's at home (sometimes more than she works when she's at the university!) Can't wait to see the photos of you and Baer. Make sure to be good and help Daddie so he doesn't get a bad back again. Love to you all! Maddie and Mommie!

Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hey guys! I've been working on being good, so I haven't seen toooo much of the penalty box. I can't wait to check out the photos of you guys. I'm sure they're gonna be great. Wow--KFC. Yummy AND you have leftovers--does it get any better? We had leftover hot dogs (not so great). My mommie doesn't really cook and when she works she cooks even less. Sounds like you guys are having lots of fun. Gotta go check out your photos. Talk to you later! Pug hugs from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hello Boys! I think Frankie looks perfectly fine and your photos were excellent. I did get tossed into the penalty box one more time last night but today I've been resting on the couch while my mommie works. Even when she doesn't have to be on campus, she has tons to do. You're right--I don't miss too many meals. I'm sure everyone will listen to you when you're in charge, but you never know--there might be a rebellion. Hope the troops stay in line for you. Talk to you soon! Love from Maddie the Baddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Pugsly, you sound so official. Maybe you should be in charge of our house. I was good today--both my mommie and I fell asleep then she took me outside to run around for a while. I'm back on the couch. I'm not surprised to hear you guys we're good. I think I have too much alone time and that's when I plot and plan my next bit of mischief! I'm being good and helping--you would all be proud of me. My mommie says I can get a job as a food taster or a paperweight, that I'd be ideal at either one! Love from Maddie the not-so-Baddie

RosienMikeysMom (almost 7 years ago)

pugsly, thanks so much for the compliments on mikey formal attire, it the only "costume" he will wear without too much fuss LOL. i have a hint for ya...take some of your old shirts or buy some at a thrift store and cut off the collars right where they are sewn to the shirt, take off the button and sew it shut, then attach the bowtie. slip it over their heads and wha la... the boys will look sooo handsome!!!!! of course you have to post pictures of them!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

How about a combination food taster AND paperweight? That way, we could eat while we lay around. What a job! Pugsly, you need to come over here and keep me in line. Last night I got up at 1:30 AM and wanted to play. Then I started scratching my bowl for food so Mommie got me some and I didn't eat it. Then I feel back to sleep and Mommie was awake. She was NOT happy. I am NOT adapting to her teaching schedule at all this semester. Hope you guys are having fun. Talk to you soon! Maddie the super Baddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Ha ha! That's so funny that you got tired watching Daddie work! Maybe that's why I'M so exhausted--watching my mommie work. I've been pretty good, no penalty box yet today (although I just woke up!) My grampie thinks it's funny that, the other day, I grabbed the end of a roll of toilet paper and ran through the downstairs, pulling the paper behind me! Mommie tried to be mad but she had to laugh. Hope you guys have a pugcellent day! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

From one bad pug to another, I don't think what you did was all that terrible. Sometimes we just get curious and need to explore things. Good thing Grammie came to your rescue. When mine's around, she gets me out of all sorts of punishments. I think I'll get an evil twin, too, so SHE can take the blame instead of me. Had my mommie to myself today because she had to call off sick. The bad part was she didn't feel like playing since she was sick. Hope all is well with you. Love from Maddie and her evil twin!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I'm trying very hard to be good and haven't had any penalties, either today or last night. Mommie felt well enough to go to the grocery store (finally!) and she got me some goodies: green beans, pears, and rawhide chews. Yum, yum, yum. Glad to hear you are all being good. Being lazy is being a good pug and that's what I aspire to be. You guys have a good weekend and enjoy the nice weather (if that's what you're having!) Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Yay! Treats in the park AND new friends. Doesn't get any better, does it? You guys are so funny. I can just picture you all watching videos and head tilting and looking around for the pug! Hee hee. Be sure to check out Max the pug. His videos are soooo funny plus he's a nice guy. We talk with him on facebook. Hope you have a good rest of the weekend. Mommie's feeling somewhat better and has to catch up on work for tomorrow. It looks like rain so I'm gonna nap. Love to you all! Maddie and her evil twin (we got TWO penalties last night alone!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I've been in the penalty box numerous times since we last spoke. It's gotten colder here, too, so Mommie and I just snuggle and snuggle. If we can live through that big storm last year, we can survive anything (plus now we have a gas fireplace!) I vow to help Mommie today and when she works at home tomorrow. Get on facebook. We'll have fun!!! Love, Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Yummie--hot dogs (although I prefer to call them frankfurters, for obvious reasons!) I'm stinky too, and Mommie keeps threatening a bath but it keeps slipping her mind. She calls me stink-bug. Good luck on that sad face but if you have to, be brave and get the bath done and over with (easy for me to say!) I may have to get my nails cut today! Today, the gas meter reader had to come in the house and he laughed at the guard dog asleep on the couch. He thought I was funny and wanted to take me with him. Mommie said no way! Pugs rock--and rule! Love from Maddie and her mommie (p.s. It's getting hot again.)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Ooops. Sorry Frankie. Guess we'll have to think of another word for hot dogs. I checked our yard today and on the neighbor's side of the fence I found a dead bird. It was sad AND yucky--all at once. Naughty pugs seem to be the trend. Mommie took me to Petsmart yesterday to get my nails cut and they COULDN'T do it because I was so bad and squirmy. Then their vet tried and couldn't do it. They're gonna make me try benadryl before I go in next time (to calm me) but Mommie's a little nervous about doing that. My Grammie says I'm spoiled rotten and blamed it all on my mommie, though Grammie is the one who gives me 6 breakfasts in one day. Last night I got up at 1:30 and I got put in the penalty box ALL night. Your poor Grammie--I hope you didn't ruin anything too good. Wow, what will you do without Daddie?! Once my mommie left me with Grammie and Grampie for a couple of days and I wouldn't even LOOK at her when she came to pick me up. I just turned away from her and followed my grammie. Glad to hear you got out of your baths. BTW, I think Pugsly the Naughty sounds like a noble name, kinda like royalty. Love from Maddie

ok, so i just took a gander at the photos of the boys and it is definitely cuteness overload!!! now you just have get a picture of all three together for the piece de resistance ...so that's your assignment, should you be willing to accept it...good luck with that

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I got up last night and peed on my square then jumped back in with Mommie. Grammie and Mommie have been planning all sorts of horrible rules and regulations for me. Thanks for the advice on the Benadryl. Mommie didn't like the idea at all. She may try to take me to petco. The bird may still be there (we saw him yesterday afternoon in Jake's yard) so we said goodbye to him and told him to visit Sister is heaven. I bet you knocked Daddie over with all your love! How fun! Our hot days are back again (yuck) but we're waiting for fall. Gotta go check out your photos! Can't wait to see them! Maddie the Baddie (but working on it!) P.S. The gas reader came over the other day and he kept looking around for the "killer dog"--he laughed when he and Mommie found me asleep downstairs on the couch. I then became his assistant. Ha ha.

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Guys! ANY pug in the world would be honored to be escorted by such handsome pugs! I couldn't have enjoyed these more! Thanks for sharing!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

You're all very lucky to have the daddie you have! I'm certain he rushed to be home in time for dinner. I'm tired of rules and regulations. Grammie has decided I'm not as bad as she said I was the other day, that I'm just too smart and curious and that's why I get into mischief. We still haven't figured out the nail clipping dilemma yet since Mommie's been too busy with work and she comes home TIRED. I have been trying to be good: only ONE trip to the penalty box yesterday. Yay! You guys all looked AMAZING in your ties! Love to you all from Maddie (and her mommie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi guys! Glad to hear you're having some quality "grammie time" but I'm sure you miss your daddie lots and lots. When he shows up, you'll probably knock him over with all of your love. Continue to be good for Grammie and she'll get you treats (grammies are softies!) I've vowed to be good 'cause Mommie has to do lots and lots of work (review an article, evaluate a travel funding request--all sorts of stuff that means NOTHING to me but, hey, if it brings the paycheck home, I'll play along, right? Enjoy your day. Love to you all! Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Yay! Your Daddie's home! Hooray! I know you just ran outside so you could help him unpack the car, right? Give him a kiss and wag from me, too. I sure hope you get to go to the dog park. Mommie has more work (she has to write an evaluation report of another teacher) but we may still go to petco and try to get my nails done. Plus I need another bag of food (YUM!) If not today, then Tuesday. Make friends with the cat like I did Oliver (Jake's brother). BTW, the dead bird is gone; I guess Jake's daddie must have removed him. Yesterday, my mommie let me run in the backyard without her while she worked inside. I saw EVERYONE: Jake, Trixie & Maxie, the royal family (Duke, Duchess, Prince, and Princess). It was a good day. Hope you have a WONDERFUL day! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hello boys! I slept in late, too. Mommie says I sounded like an old man snoring! Sounds like you made lots of friends. Sometimes people are scared of pugs until they get to know us, then they see that we're sweet at pie (yum--PIE!) We may try to get my nails done tomorrow. If Mommie gets her work done tonight, we'll be able to. Don't worry--my mommie gives very fair reports and she gets good ones in return. It is cold and rainy so we played indoors when Mommie got home. Enjoy your good weather and be good! Love ya! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I'm sleeping in today again. I'm wrapped up in "Old Blue" (my little doggie blanket) and I look like a burrito! Mommie is up and working away and I'm taking it easy. It's rainy and yucky, like yesterday, so I probably won't be able to go outside today. You guys are lucky you get to go to the park. We haven't found a park around here, though we haven't looked too closely (Mommie is more interested in finding STORES and MALLS than parks!) Still not sure if I'm getting my nails done today (Mommie is dreading it!) Have a great day and we'll talk soon! Love from Maddie (who was only in the penalty box ONCE last night!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Frankie, it sounds like you take charge when Daddie's napping. Good to know you have everything under control! We need someone around here who can take control of everything. I got to play in the back yard today when Mommie came home from work but it was kinda cold. Good idea about dog parks (though Mommie says until her dossier is finished for tenure and promotion, we won't be doing ANYTHING fun.) No penalty box (yet) today. I don't mean to brag but I agree I am an ADORABLE burrito (okay, my mommie wrote THAT!) Laundry. Eeeek. Mommie keeps saying we need to do some but it never happens. I can even help--I chew the hangers. Ha ha! Have fun and take care of each other! Hugs all around from both of us to all of you! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hey Pug Boys! What's up with you today? Sorry to hear about the dead bird. We think Oliver the cat caught the one in Jake's yard. He was very pretty, with blue feathers. You're lucky to have Daddie to do yucky things like carry a dead bird away. Glad to hear you got SOME of your nails cut. I STILL haven't got any done. Mommie's dealing with student papers (lots of them) and student excuses. It tends to make her a bit cranky. She did get three good evaluation reports (about herself) out of three that were done (one was from her boss.) She's very glad about that 'cause her boss wrote GOOD things. Today looks kinda foggy and dreary so I may be playing indoor games today. At least this year, when we get stuck inside for the winter, we have a fun house to be inside. Enjoy your fun day! Love you guys. Maddie (who got put in the penalty box again last night!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi guys! Mommie says thanks for your kind words (but she doesn't always feel like a good person!) Sounds like you guys were a barking bunch today. I didn't see any squirrels today but yesterday we had SIX blue jays on our fence and in our yard. Wow! I didn't bark (I don't bark much) but I watched them. I am being very good. I could see that my mommie has lots of work to do, so I dug around in one of my toy boxes and pulled out a rawhide--all by myself. I'm now working on it quietly on the couch. No penalty box for me. It was a sunny day and very cool and Jake came over to play in our yard. Grammie and Grampie can't come for a visit because they have to winterize the camper plus Mommie is waaaaaay too busy. I did listen to my grammie on the phone and she said she misses me and for me to be good. Robbie, you are like Mr. Miyagi (sp?) I bet that fly tasted awful. Maybe Daddie will give you a prize to take the bad taste out of your mouth (tell him I said so). Gotta go. Have a good day. Pug hugs to all! Maddie (and her mommie)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hiya guys! Thanks for sending the treats. I did get ONE penalty last night but I did pretty well overall. I slept well 'cause I was tired from running around with Jake. I understand about the rawhides. We have toys and rawhides everywhere even though I have SIX toy boxes. Last night I was digging in one of them, trying to get the treats at the bottom, ones I haven't visited in a while. I'm working on being good since Mommie only has THREE weeks to get her dossier pulled together and she's in panic mode. I may not even GET a Halloween costume. There's a pugfest (next week maybe?) but we may not be able to go. You guys have a good weekend. Hope it's filled with lots of treats and few flies! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Well, some of the toy boxes are little ones. Sister used to have lots of toys and she needed the toy boxes. Now I get her toys and toy boxes. I'll tell Mommie you said we HAVE to go to the pugfest. She might listen to you. How did you miss potato chips? I always listen for rustling bags and crunchy chips, even if I'm asleep. I napped today and my mommie worked, then she let me play outside by myself. I'm getting pretty independent. Have a good one. Talk to you soon! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I LOVE to go outside, even by myself. Mommie's gonna really try to get us to pugfest, so we'll see. Maybe you guys need to signal to each other when that chip bag opens, like a code word so all of you can get some. Hey Frankie, I have THREE hedgehogs: one from Sister, one yellow one that's filthy, and a minnie one. I was digging in my box again last night and I had NO penalties. Yay. You're lucky you're gonna get furminated. Enjoy the day at the spa. Can't wait to see your photos! Love to you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I wish I could get furminated. I'm getting kinda ripe. No pugfest until this weekend (Oct. 9) so I'll let you know if I go. Can't wait to see your photo. I'm certain you guys are soooooo handsome. Glad to hear you're not in trouble. I got one penalty last night but that's it. Gotta go see your photo! Have a pug-wonderful day! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I have my mommie hard at work so maybe we can go to pugfest, though she has over 100 papers to grade and her dossier to do (it's four sections--each section is in a 3" binder so that's LOTS of papers to work on, not to mention the sections she has to write!) Your pictures are excellent. I think you are the three most handsome pugs I've ever seen. The bowties remind my mommie of a professor she works with who always wears bowties (but you guys are much better looking!) See you later, gators! I like that! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi Boys! Hope you're all doing well. I'm a bit under the weather today. Mommie went to Starbucks to get some grading done, and when she came home I had thrown up when she was gone. Right now I'm resting on the couch, wrapped up in "Old Blue." Mommie's waiting to see if I need to go to the doctor. You're right--fall is here and winter is coming. Last night, we had to put our heat on. It works great. Maybe next time we'll use the fireplace. Take care of yourselves and send our love to everyone there! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I'm resting right now (Mommie is home from work since classes were cancelled due to some program the president of the university puts on every year.) Sometimes I throw up a little and am fine but I threw up Sunday and again yesterday. I got plain white right last night and haven't thrown up again. My mommie cancelled a lunch with a friend to stay home with me. Our fireplace will be fun (Mommie hasn't had one since she lived in Georgia). This one is gas, so I won't have to worry about logs and stuff. It has a grate in front of it so I don't get an owie--plus I KNOW my mommie will watch out for me. Mommie says Starbucks give her the caffeine boost she needs--plus there are no distractions (tv, me, messy house, etc.) She's down to 46 papers. Fingers crossed. Love to you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Mommie stayed home with me yesterday and I rested. She gave me more rice and I ate some dog food (yucko) and I started racing around at bedtime so Mommie suspects I may be on the road to recovery (if not already there!) I'm home alone today so I plan to rest up. Later Mommie will come home from a meeting at work and we'll see how I am then. One time Sister found a pepto tablet under Grammie's bed and she started to eat it but spit it out. Yikes! Little pink houses, huh? We don't have any of those in our neighborhood, thank goodness. Thanks for your concern! Love ya, Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Thanks for all of your good thoughts. I think they helped make me feel better. I ate ALL of my dog food yesterday. Still not sure about the pugfest but my mommie cancelled attending a party she was supposed to go to today. She wanted to come home and be with me and said she couldn't have fun if she was worrying about me. Oooops. Just got a penalty--gotta go! I guess I must be better if I can be mischievous! Love to all of you from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Well, I'm good as new and got put in the penalty box FIVE times last night! Today was a work day--I chased stinkbugs all afternoon out on the deck. We couldn't go to pugtoberfest because my mommie twisted her ankle yesterday and it was all swollen and she was hobbling around the house. She even had trouble walking up and down our steps. She wrapped it and it's feeling better. I TOLD her not to wear high heels but she didn't listen to me. Sometimes I know better than she does. I don't think Frankie's any more spoiled than any of us. You guys will have a great time at pugfest. Meet lots of friends, okay, and have a super time! Time for me to sit in the back window. Talk to you soon. I can't wait to hear about the pugfest!!! Get photos! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

We never saw stinkbugs until this year. According to the news, there's been waaaaay too many this year. Mommie's is afraid to smash them 'cause if you do they'll stink and we've been told them smell really bad. One showed up in Mommie's scientific & technical writing class the other morning and the students were freaking out (these are adults if you can believe it). Mommie just told them she'd bring me in and I'd take care of them. I am so excited for you guy to go to the pugs in the park. Take lots of pictures. You three will be so handsome. Can't wait to see! Have a GREAT day! Love to you all from me and my mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Awwwww! I was so looking forward to hearing about your day and seeing pictures. Mommie's ankle is fine. She wrapped it the other night and woke up the next day fine--no swelling or pain. I guess my magical pug healing powers were at work. Please don't be sad. Seeing those three crying pug faces is making US sad here. I got to see Trixie and Maxie today AND I got to meet the UPS guy. He seemed a little afraid of me and I was behind my fence even! He stopped to talk to Mommie and Trixie and Maxie's mommie and I guess he's been bitten a few times, enough to make him a little nervous around dogs. Guess he doesn't know how great us pugs are--very friendly. Gotta go. It's been a long day and Mommie is STILL working. She started at 5 this morning and is still at it--and it's 8 o'clock. I'm trying to get her to slow down and at least eat something (since all she's had today was a lollipop, 2 cups of coffee, and a diet soda--and she gets mad at ME for eating a stinkbug!) Love to all of you from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Hooray--both for the Pug-O-Ween AND especially for your gotcha days! I'm soooooo excited for you both. Yay for Pugsly! Yay for Frankie! (also Yay for Robbie, even if it's not his gotcha day!) Wish we could be there to share the fun but I know you guys will have a great time! You're both only a little bit older than me--and I still act like a baby sometimes. My mommie worries that I'm home alone too much but she has to work to keep me living the life I live! Love to all you guys from us girls! Maddie and her mommie

Yay yay yay! I LOVE surprises. I sure hope Frankie and Robbie can keep a secret. I can't wait till Sunday either. Our weather's been very strange: it got really hot last week then it got cold and rainy. The leaves look really pretty but our furnace has been turning on at night. Brrrrrrrr. I FINALLY got my nails cut at Petco on Tuesday. It took three girls: on to hold me, one to clip me, and one to talk me through it! Keep me posted on the secret and the upcoming festivities! Love you guys! From Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi Boys! Hmmmmm, the boys are REALLY good at secret keeping. I was hoping they might slip. Our furnace was on again last night and my mommie and I snuggled. Maybe I don't want a sister since I'd have to share Mommie. (NO, I still want one!) My grammie and grampie sent me a Halloween card that I sniffed and sniffed. Grammie said she misses us but my mommie says we can't have visits until she gets her dossier turned in (only 16 days from today it's due!!!) The nail clipping girls were very patient with me and they also said it's a pug thing. I wonder why? We're such an excellent breed otherwise, aren't we? I can't WAIT to hear ALL about your gotcha day and see photos. Have lots and lots of fun. Me and Mommie send love, hugs, and belly rubs! Wish we could be there! Happy, happy gotcha day!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Wow! Sounds like everything's set! It's funny how we pugs know how to be gentle when we need to be: around older people, around children, around puppies. Guess we're just super smart, huh?! Have a GRAND time celebrating tomorrow and get pictures! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hip hip hooray! Yippee! Happy Gotcha Day!!! Mommie and I are both so excited for you. Even Grammie sent good luck wishes to you! Hope you're having a great time and enjoying your special day. You deserve the best. All our love, Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hooray! Sounds like you had an EXCELLENT gotcha day party. Yum, yum, lots of treats AND a new shirt. Wow! You must have been a good pug. We gotta go check out your photos! Congrats on your day! Love and hugs from Maddie and her mommie

It sounds like it was an excellent day and the pictures prove it. Tell the truth, though. Did you nap afterwards or did you guys all pass out?! Ha ha. Make sure to stay warm. We've been getting colder and colder nights and the leaves have been falling. They look really pretty since they're changing colors. Yesterday Jake and his mommie came over when my mommie was talking to Trixie and Maxie's mommie. We raced around and then I kissed Maxie through the fence. Trixie just barked and barked. It was fun. Talk to you soon! Love from Maddie

Oh, no--a missing hedge hog. Poor Frankie. I have THREE of them. I sure hope he turns up. I haven't seen any hegehogs around here but my mommie saw a 12-point buck one street down from ours when she was driving to work this morning at 6:00am! Our neighbors told us that one time a deer jumped through the neighbor's front window. I don't know what to do it that happens. Maybe I'll try to make friends with it!!! My paws are crossed that hedgie turns up quick! All my love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Yay!!! Hedgie showed up. I'm soooooo glad. Every pug needs a hedgehog to snuggle with. Wonder where he was? That's so funny about the sprinklers. I can picture that and it made me laugh and laugh. Let's hope the deer stay away and just stop by to nibble grass. Some of Mommie's students (hunters) offered to come by and shoot the deer! Good thing hunting season hasn't started yet. Hope you had fun cuddling. Mommie's working home today (Yay) so I'm going to try to be good and help her out. Guess what she'll be working on? Love from Maddie

Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi guys! I miss talking to you. Mommie's been sick the last couple of days (bad timing given her dossier is due soon) so we haven't been on the computer. Sounds like so much went on with you guys this week. So glad you returned that wallet. My mommie once left her purse on a plane (she was traveling with Sister in a carrier) and it got turned in. Sounds like you guys are excellent bosses. Sometimes repairmen NEED our help. Your toys sound like fun. Mommie gave me a new toy she had hidden away in the "rainy day toy" cupboard. Spooky Spider---OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHH! He has LOTS of legs for me to chew AND he squeaks. Yay. Hooray for the pug hero! I'm so proud of our breed. We rock! I'll tell my mommie about the videos but she's lucky to be on the computer now for emails and stuff. Love and miss you guys! Maddie

Hi boys! I'm so excited that you guys got to go to TWO halloween parties. YAY! Petsmart had one today but Mommie's still not feeling great plus she has too much work. I bet you met tons and tons of great pug friends. Can't wait to see your photos. Getting sleepy--gotta go! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Guys, thank you SO much for sharing these. I feel like we were able to attend a pugoween even though that seems not to be in the cards for us this year. Thanks for giving us our halloween party! Love from Maddie (and her mommie)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Pugsly, you're very perceptive. I was a tiny bit sad (maybe feeling sorry for myself) and Mommie has been working too hard and making herself sick. Plus she feels guilty that we're missing all the pug things she wants me to experience. But Grammie says if Mommie doesn't get tenure then we won't be able to keep our new house and I have to be patient and be good for her. Thanks for making us both feel better by sharing your fun events with us. After next week (maybe before if we're lucky), Mommie's dossier will be done and turned in and then we can have fun. You're my bestest friend, too and I wish you guys lived near us. We could have sooooo much fun together. Talk to you soon and thanks again for cheering us up! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I'd grab that doggie's ears, too. They look like fun--plus he sings! You have to listen to Daddie, though, and play gently with him. My paws are crossed that Mommie is done with her work soon. We have trick or treaters coming on Saturday so I plan to be outside to greet everyone!!! Along with each treat, I'm gonna give everyone a little lick! We already gave the boy across the street, Will, his special pumpkin full of treats. He was sooooo excited--we gave him candy and funny pencils. If there are any leftover treats, Mommie will take them to work--one class even asked her to bring in the leftovers! Hard to believe they are adults sometimes! No penalty box yet--I'm still half asleep. Love to all of you from both of us!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Ha ha ha! My mommie's gonna get the penalty box, too, 'cause she keeps buying and eating Halloween candy. When the cashiers ask her if she's stocking up for trick or treaters, she's too embarassed to tell them SHE ate all the candy. I say they BOTH get the penalty box and WE PUGS get the candy! Yay! Mommie dropped a sweet tart and I grabbed it. Yummy. I wish Robbie was here to clean my ears. They're dirty but I run from Mommie and the ear wipes. Mommie says she's starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel--I think that means the dossier will be done soon. I hope so. Plus she only has till Monday anyway. She took me for a walk today on our street and we met a new neighbor. This lady said she LOVES pugs! Well, of course! Who doesn't? Hope you guys are having fun in the leaves. I did the same thing: chased the leaves in the wind. Talk to you soon! Love from Maddie (the Baddie, 'cause I got up at 11 last night and stayed up till 1. Uh-oh.)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Yeah, our people are very silly. Good thing we're so mature. Somebody has to keep things running smoothly. I'm so glad you got to see Joker and his friends. I was so tired yesterday after my after-school walk with Mommie that I napped most of the afternoon, played toys a bit (giggle ball, hedgehog, and spooky spider) then slept the rest of the night. Mommie now thinks I should walk that hill EVERY day! Uh-oh. Hope you have a fun day! Love to all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Sounds like a good trip to the park: little girls AND Morty and Sugar. Wow! Funny, but we don't have many leaves in our yard (maybe because the yard guy just cut the grass yesterday.) We don't have any trees but the neighbors do so I would expect leaves. I sat out on the deck yesterday afternoon in the sun and chased leaves up there. I even ate one. I also saw a big furry caterpiller and I poked him (her?) and it curled up into a ball. Mommie took me away so I didn't eat it! Carrots sound good. Maybe I'll give a hint to my mommie . . . I have my paws crossed that Mommie's work gets done today (if possible) so we can enjoy Halloween together and get caught up on some naps. Dossier deadline: MONDAY (but I hope it's done earlier so I get some Mommie time!) Have a good day, guys! Love ya! Maddie (and her mommie)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

We only have a lawn guy 'cause our lawn in kinda small and he's pretty cheap plus we don't have a mower! That's a good excuse anyway. I sure hope Daddie catches Robbie in action. It sounds HILARIOUS! Maybe he thinks he's in the army (Robbie, not Daddie!) We have GREAT NEWS! Mommie just finished her dossier so we can spend Halloween and ALL weekend together. She might even take me to campus tomorrow to drop off her material since it's too heavy to carry. Yay! I'll be a CAL student for a day! Then home for Halloween! Gotta go. I'm sleepy after my walk! Love to you guys from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Well, I MAY be going to college if I can get up off the couch. I'm exhausted. I believe that dossier just plain wore me out. Chicken--yummy. I wonder if Frankie got a bite during the ride? I know I'd offer to HOLD the chicken in my car seat with me (just to keep it safe, of course!) I LOVE it--if it hits the rug, it belongs to the pug! My new motto. Hope you guys have a great day! Love ya! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

No college for me yesterday. Mommie and I napped then woke up for Halloween. I greeted the trick or treaters from behind the fence and everyone petted me and wanted to know what kind of dog I am. Why, a pug, of course, but I guess it's up to us to educate the masses. During Halloween, I got bored, wandered into the house, and fell asleep on the couch. It was so COLD I was shivering so Mommie gave me green beans. I don't understand the fuss--I sure didn't get any treats (except for the beans). Hope you guys have a fun halloween--with LOTS of treats! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi guys! I never did make it to college this weekend but I've been there before. Mommie's students say, "Bring Maddie to class!" She told them that me running around a technical writing class would probably not be a good idea--either for their learning or for the carpet (sometimes I have accidents in strange places!) Boy, was that little girl lucky! A whole bowl of candy. My mommie's students were upset there was no candy left for them. Now they want a pizza party--at 8:00 a.m.!! Try to rest your tired paws. I'm resting now 'cause when Mommie gets home I'm gonna get walked again. We skipped the walk yesterday and I was BAD so I have to burn off all my energy, Mommie says. Love to my favorite guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Yeah, I could eat pizza at ANY time of day but Mommie didn't think pizza and a lab full of computers would be a good mix. Mommie didn't eat ALL of her candy (what was left of it). She saved me some, though, and played extra with me now that she has time! Have a good night! I had another walk plus I played in the yard so bedtime will be early. Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi boys. Things are more back to normal now that Mommie's not tied up working all the time. I like to help with laundry, too. Sometimes I take a clothes hanger and run around with it then chew on it. It makes my grammie laugh. When she and I do laundry together, she always tells me the story of when Sister followed her into the basement at midnight one night to hold hangers for her while she did laundry. I laid in the sun yesterday out on the back patio. Hope your supper was good! Love to my favorite boys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hooray for Frankie. Hey, he's only 6, just a young pup. Can't wait to hear about the party and see photos. Happy Gotcha day, Frankie. My friends and I layed in the sun together today. My mommie walked me and we ran into Trixie and Maxie and their mommie so they stopped to talk and us pups greeted each other then sat together in the sun while the mommies talked. I had my denim jacket on (used to belong to Sister; it has a red fire hydrant on it!) It's been cold this week so I have to suit up for the weather. We might get SNOW showers on Saturday. Yikes. Mommie went up to the attic and got all my sweaters out and ready to go. Hope you guys are having fun and staying warm! Have fun with your friends. Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Today is a very yucky day--cold and rainy and Mommie had to go to work for one lousy meeting (where people will complain for an hour and reach no conclusions). She said "Ugh" before she left so I'm sneaking on the computer while she's gone! Ha ha! You're lucky about the warm weather. On Saturday the high is only supposed to be 39. Yikes. Maybe Mommie and I can try the fireplace. Yay! Oooops. Gotta go! Don't wanna get caught on the computer without permission! Love ya from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Yikes. I guess winter's here for all of us. I don't think I'm ready since I've come to enjoy running in my backyard and playing with my dog friends outside. Once the snow hits, I don't even want to put my feet on the pavement. I was even shivering on Halloween night. Thanks for the warning about the fireplace. It's gas and has a grate in front of it but I imagine that grate gets hot. Mommie will be watching me carefully, I'm sure. I love that--pugtona. I did that the other night. We call it "tazzing", like the tazmanian devil. I bet Robbie was a good assistant but sometimes people who come to fix things don't think so. My mommie has a rule: this is MY house and MY DOG'S house. We're not expendable but you are. She even has the "Rosie" test when she dates someone (named after my sister). If the guy doesn't understand her love of pugs and doesn't treat us good, she's done with them. One guy called my sister "thingy" and my mommie told him not to bother calling. Another said my sister looked like Winston Churchill (that was a first and LAST date). Love me, love my dog is her motto. The best guys are the ones who get down on the floor and play with me and my toys or who talk to me or sing to me. Well, gotta go. Hope you guys stay warm and have fun! Love ya! Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I like that: if you don't like my dog, I don't like you. I may have to use that quote. It's still pretty cold today and we may try the fireplace sometime today. Mommie wants to read the instruction book (Grampie told her to double check the directions--he worries about us!) We'll keep you posted. You guys must be SOOOOO excited right now for Frankie's gotcha day! Eat some treats for me!!! You're right--Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Yummy. What a great holiday: all about food. It's a pug's dream come true! Keep me posted on the party planning and be sure to post photos tomorrow! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

You guys are so lucky. It's still very cold here and I KNOW it won't go to 80 today. The fireplace should be easy--there's a thermostat switch above the regular thermostat/air conditioning switch. Hmmmmm, I wonder what's in that package Daddie brought home? I can't wait to find out!!! Pupcakes sound wonderful. Yay for you guys for getting a party. I'll give your love to my mommie, grammie, and grampie and you give my love to Frankie, Robbie, Daddie, and Grammie! Love from Maddie the Baddie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Happy, happy gotcha day, Frankie! Have a wonderful day, sweet boy. You deserve the best! Love from Maddie and her mommie!!!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hooray for cake, ice cream, toys, and treats. Sounds like a great celebration to me! I'm surprised you got in trouble--I thought you NEVER did anything wrong. Ha ha. I'm sure Daddie forgave you as soon as you did it. Can't wait to see the photos. Glad it was a good celebration. Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I understand about shredding toys. That's how I earned the nickname "the shredder" when I was a baby. Sounds like the bunny is a new favorite for Frankie. Glad he likes it. Sounds like adolescence has hit Robbie. Tell him not to worry. I had a pimple a few weeks ago and it went away--and I'm only TWO! Gotta go see your photos. Love ya guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Wow! You guys got tons of toys and treats. I wish I had a sister so I could share her birthday with her. That's not likely since I'm still so bad that Mommie says she couldn't handle TWO of us! Ha. Thanks for all the treats. That's two treats from each of you! I'm surprised any of the toys have survived. I'm glad Frankie is enjoying Bunny so much. Sounds like that will become his special snuggle friend. Your photos were sooooo cute and funny. I love how the three of you get along so well. Enjoy the outside while you can. I walked yesterday and it's been getting a bit warmer but who knows what type of weather we'll have by next week? Have a terrific day, guys! Love to you all from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi guys, keep your paws crossed for me getting a sister, but if I don't it's my own fault for being naughty. I'm glad Frankie loves his baby bunny. Sometimes I suck on toys when I sleep, too. I didn't walk today but I ran around in the yard and my mommie gave me some chicken AND some fish. Yummy. Mommie says Sister was aggressive around food, that if something fell no one could ever reach for it 'cause she'd snarl. Otherwise she was very gentle. A nap sounds good. I think maybe I'll curl up on the couch under old blue and catch a few winks. We haven't tried the fireplace yet but soon. Love to you boys from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

I'll have to check you out on facebook. Do you mean you have your own facebook page or you're on it in connection with pugspot? I'll have to look for you. I'm sure you boys all looked handsome and who hasn't gotten a little pee on our clothes? Poor Robbie. We still love you, dude. Gotta go find you on facebook. Talk to you soon. Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Yay! It's so cool that we can talk on FB now. I only have a page through my mommie (as you could see) and she's busy enough answering one so I probably won't get one of my own. It's still fun. There are soooooo many pugs and pug lovers there. Have a good day and we'll talk soon! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

OH, no, not SNOW. Yucky. We are having nice weather today and I was just outside while the four puppies barked up at me from their backyard. Facebook is kinda silly, and we waste a lot of time on there. Mommie has been busy grading papers today so she's a bit cranky, plus she didn't get enough sleep. I'm gonna nap, though that won't help her crankiness. Have a great nap! Love from Maddie the Baddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

We're not counting days till Christmas; we're counting days till the semester ends. After today, Mommie has to meet with her classes 9 more times and then finals start and THEN it will be Christmas. We're looking forward to Thanksgiving first, though. Tell Robbie to slow down on that list--he's got plenty of time. Love you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Today has been a work day for Mommie so I've been outside on my own. She finished her papers (YAY) but she's getting more Monday so we have to enjoy ourselves. Right now, we're watching football: Penn State vs. Ohio State. Of course, we're for the Nittney Lions. If it wasn't so hot out, I'd have my PSU sweater on! Yes, Grammie and Grampie are coming for turkey day and maybe some others (though we may not have turkey). We're celebrating the new house and having a few days off. Can't wait! Have a good one. I like that: Yak at you later! Maddie the Baddie--I stole my mommie's pillie (pillow) and now there's gonna be a pillie fight. Ha ha!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

That's where our pillies are! On the couch. I have little ones for me but I like the BIG ones. Poor Daddie. Make room for him on the pillies. I tease Mommie but eventually I allow her to take a pillie. How else could we snuggle together? We have a big box of cheerios and Mommie always gives me two of them before she goes to work (to give me energy to guard the house, I think!) We will relax AND eat well if Grammie is here to visit. She LOVES to cook and clean (yay). She calls me her shadow 'cause I follow her. We missed the end of PSU game so I don't know what happened. I have a bad feeling. Talk to you soon. Pugs ROCK AND RULE! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Oh, no! What happened to your foot? Please, please, please get it checked out as soon as possible and let us know what's going on. This next Friday my sister would have been 11 years old. Too bad about PSU but we live in Steelers country. Students always have excuses the Monday after a game is on late. We called Grammie yesterday and she was screaming at the tv--she LOVES football. Good luck at the vet and keep us posted. Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Thank goodness you're on the mend. It can be very scary but Daddie would never let anything bad happen to you. Just do what the doctor says and make sure everyone pampers and spoils you. Dr. Dave sounds like a good vet. I wish we had one we liked. As for Mommie, I'll give her good cuddles tonight. Right now I'm watching Martha Speaks (with the talking dog) and am resting. We walked and played for a while and now I'm laying on the pillies. Remember, sad looks are the best for scoring treats! Love from Maddie and her mommie. Feel better soon!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi guys. I hope your foot is feeling better--sorry you don't like the hot water. Think of it as a spa. Sounds like Grammie is taking good care of you and Daddie, too. Robbie sounds like a big help and I'm glad Frankie likes his pillie. My sister had pilleyland when she and Mommie lived in Georgia. She layed on pilleyland all day by the front door and window till Mommie got home. (We also think she ran a business there but that's another story!) I could tell Mommie was stressed and I curled right up on her lap and tucked my head under her chin. She feels much better. Pugs are the best medicine. Rest that foot and score lots of treats. Love to you and the boy from me

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Awwwww. I'm sorry you feel so bad. We just went out to fill the car with gas so Mommie took me so I could get a ride. It was cold and rainy and I shivered in my car seat. By the time the car heated up, we were back home. Glad to be back on the couch. Take care of each other, guys! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Ha ha ha. You guys are so funny. Sounds like pug mayhem. See, that's why I need a sister--so we can team up on my mommie. I wish I had a bath. The other day, I found a patch of some kind of plant or flower in our backyard so I rolled around in it. My mommie swears I smelled like peppermint when I came out. Maybe I'll get a bath during the t-day break. Glad your foot's good. Bye from one bad smelling pug and her mommie (who smells like perfume).

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi guys. Mommie was up sick last night so she called off worked and we napped on the couch. She feels pretty lazy but I told her that she was in training to be a pug: sleep all day. The weather is so weird. Last night we had so much wind that it sounded like people were breaking in. All of our plastic "Frankie" chairs blew across the yard and even our hose holder flew, which is surprisingly heavy. Once the snow flies, I guess winter will be here. Stay warm and have fun! Love from peppermint puggy and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Hi Boys, I think my mommie's feeling better. She may have had a bad reaction to some cough medicine she took last night. Good thing she has me to keep an eye on her and be her nurse. One question: did Robbie chew his OWN harness? Ha ha. Glad you had fun with your friends. Your foot must be feeling better. I'm glad. I suspect we all better enjoy the weather while we can. Stay warm! Love from Maddie (and from her mommie)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Who knew Robbie could be a mischievous little pugger? Can't wait to see your new photos. Gotta go check them out and will report back!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Nice harnesses and clothes! Are those puppia harnesses? They look great (but please buy Robbie one so he does't feel left out). Pleeeeeeeease!!! He told me he didn't mean to be bad and he's sorry!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

They look great. Let me know how you like them. Mommie says that sometimes Petco is VERY expensive but they're the only ones in Washington who sell the BIG bag of dog food (royal canin) that I like. Mommie bought me a puppia but it's a bit too snug on me!!! What can I say? I'm voluptuous. Last night, we fell asleep on the couch watching tv. I had both pillies and I slept on my mommie's head and kicked her all night long!!! Hooray for Robbie getting a new harness!!! Yay! Love from Maddie (the couch hog) and her tired, beaten up mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 7 years ago)

Glad you're enjoying the new harnesses. Mommie's been grading papers all day so I've been lounging on the couch. She said she will be glad when this semester is over. Petco is the only place who could cut my nails, so we try to give them business. Hope your foot's doing well. Have fun! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I say give all those students a pawprint for a grade--they won't know what to make of that. Glad the harnesses are working out well. I'm on the couch, too, planning how I'm going to steal all the pillies tonight. I like mine smooshed down, too. Sleep well! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hooray for shopping! Are you sure that maybe Daddie and Grammie weren't hiding the presents, like in the car or something? Or maybe they were just looking around to get more ideas. I'm on the pillies right now. You guys are right--I like to smoosh mine down so I sink into them. Mommie will be grading today to try to get caught up from her sick day and because Thanksgiving is next week and she doesn't want to have to work over the holiday. Maybe I'll sneak into her backpack and steal a few to grade so I can help her out. Paws crossed she gets lots done! Keep looking around for those presents! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Or else Daddie is being tricky and hid the presents in the trunk of the car! I'd still keep sniffing around. Funny about that pork chop. Mommie said she's gonna tie piece of pizza on a string that's tied to a pole and hold it in front of me to get me to walk the hill (she had to carry me on Friday!) My grammie has a BFF toy she's giving to me at Thanksgiving because she said she and I are BFFs! She's so silly. Poor Robbie and his pimple. Don't make fun of him and don't allow others to. Remember, you could be only children, like me, and it's no fun. It's cold here, too, so I'm staying on the couch, under old Blue. Stay warm and have fun!!! love ya! Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I LOVE old Blue--he's kinda stinky right now but the only time we realize that is bedtime and Mommie doesn't feel like washing clothes at bedtime. But if she puts him in the hamper, then I can't sleep wtihout him. I wouldn't worry about Christmas presents--we've all been such good pugs this year, and even if we haven't been, we are so loved we're sure to get lots of stuff. It was warmer today and tomorrow will be near 70! We love our pillies! I just smooshed two of them (since they're feather pillies they smoosh good) and am camped out on the couch. I slept till noon then I heard Mommie in the kitchen making mac and cheese so I pulled myself off the couch and wandered into the kitchen. She didn't take the time to make the home made kind but this Kraft stuff was pretty good. Hope you guys are all having fun! Love from Maddie and Mommie

See, you understand me and old blue. The mac and cheese was amazing. Ask Daddie to PLEASE give you some sometime. If you like noodles and cheese, well, this is the best! I wish I smelled clean. I rolled around in the mint or whatever it is out in our backyard. Nature's air freshener and a hint to Mommie that I need a bath--BAD! It was 70 today but snow maybe on Friday. Yuck. Stay warm. Love you guys! Maddie (and Mommie)

I met a new dog on my walk yesterday named Kimba. She was a big Siberian Husky but sooo nice and gentle. We walked with them but we turned around sooner since I don't walk as far as they do. I might have another friend for a playdate. Then, we walked home and the 4 puppies were out in their yard. I literally dragged Mommie to their house and they barked and wagged. Then we went to our yard and Jake came out to walk. Poor Mommie had a very long day and now she has a sore throat--just in time for the holiday break. Ugh. Hooray for mac and cheese! Love from Maddie (and old blue)

Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I'm sure Mommie will be fine. Sometimes when she gets overly tired her throat hurts her but it usually goes away during the unless she's really sick. I LOVE to meet new people--they always fuss over pugs, don't they? Be nice to Grammie if she's in the kitchen--I've learned that's a good thing to do. Mine's a pushover--all I have to do is look sad and I get a prize. Tomorrow late morning my grammie and grampie are driving in. I told Grammie to rest up 'cause I have activities planned. Can't wait to see them!

Dear Robbie, thanks for your note. Happy thanksgiving to you? What are you thankful for? I'm thankful for my mommie, grammie, grampie, and cheerios! You've picked up the computer very well. Me and Mommie send you our love and happy thanksgiving kisses! Good luck scoring goodies! Since we're staying at OUR house we may be able to talk on the computer again! Maddie and Mommie (old blue says hi and he's hoping Grammie will throw him in the washer--and me along with him!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I'm so glad Robbie liked his note. My grammie and grampie got here yesterday and Grammie asked how you guys were doing. I'll try to remember to show her your pictures. We started eating yesterday and haven't stopped yet--and it isn't even Thanksgiving till later today. Grammie and Mommie and I walked and I got carried part of the way. They thought I was being lazy but it turns out my jacket was chafing me. I'm resting now 'cause I woke up at 3:15 a.m. and scratched and pounded on Grammie and Grampie's bedroom door. I went back to sleep but Mommie was awake until 4:30. Then I woke Grammie up at 6:30 by scratching on their door again. Mommie is exhausted and the day hasn't even started yet. Hope all of you--Pugsly, Frankie, Robbie, Daddie, and Grammie--have a wonderful thanksgiving. We're thankful for friends like you! Love Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Dear Pugsly, Robbie, Frankie, Daddie, and Grammie, thank you for passing along your thanksgiving cheer. I woke Grammie up at 6:30 am for toast and she shared. Then Grampie woke and ate toast and he shared! Mommie drank coffee and DIDN'T share! Anyway, we had lots of wonderful goodies: chicken (I call it chicky-licky), sweet potatoes (I call them orange potatoes), croissants, stuffing, mashed taties, and pie, pie, pie. I'm sticking close to Grammie to nap and snack. Hope your day was as good as ours! Happy Thanksgiving from Maddie, her mommie, her grammie, and her grampie! Gobble till you wobble!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hooray for us pugs! We all scored big time this holiday. I even got pumpkin pie for breakfast today. As long as I follow my grammie around with a sad face, she gives me all sorts of goodies. If I look sad at my grampie, he gives me neck rubs and ear scratches then we nap together. It's good to be loved! Have a great day and terrific weekend! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

We woke up this morning and we had SNOW on our deck! It wasn't a lot but just enough to tell us winter's here! We got pizza last night for dinner and I had green beans, too, then I got sick. I keep waking up all night long, trying to find my grammie and grampie, who are asleep in the big bedroom. I think having them here is too much excitement for me 'cause I can't sleep. Mommie is tired, getting up with me all the time and is getting cranky. Grammie wants to take me to Petsmart now, so I gotta go! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Grammie and Grampie just left and boy am I exhausted. At least I'm well fed, since I'll have to go back to my dog food diet. My grammie took me to Petsmart yesterday and we met lots and lots of people. We didn't buy anything because Grammie brought toys when they first came to visit. Hope you guys are enjoying the holiday. Mommie goes back to work tomorrow so we need to catch up on our sleep today! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Tell Frankie I have THREE hedgehogs: one little brown one, one big brown one, and one yellow one (that looks kinda yucky dirty 'cause I carry him around a lot.) I don't know what I want 'cause I get lots of stuff throughout the year. My grammie brought me a "BFF" toy 'cause she and I are BFFs. Poor Daddie. Give him lots of love and snuggles to make him feel better. Love from one partied-out pug! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hi guys! Yesterday the sun was out a little bit but today is all rainy and windy and icky cold. Glad to hear the cuddles worked--pugs are MAGIC. Maybe two of you could distract Daddie while the third checks out the packages in the car. And yes, I got old blue washed during the holiday. As a matter of fact, I'm wrapped up in him now. Have a great day and we'll talk soon! Love from the girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

We had SNOW today. Mostly it melted earlier but it's still coming down and it's covering over tonight. It's kinda pretty except my mommie has to go back to work tomorrow. Mommie thinks I got the tick from me rolling around in the plants in our backyard. Since there are lots of deer around here and they often carry ticks, that may be how I got it. The vet put me on flea AND tick medicine plus an antibiotic to fight Lyme disease (though they don't think I have symptoms for that.) I get to take the antibiotic pill with cheese, which is yummy. I also weigh 23 pounds so the four letter word diet has been thrown around and I don't like that. I think it was just thanksgiving bloat PLUS they weighed me and I had on my thick Penn State sweater. Glad you got clean pillies! I got fresh ones the other day! Great minds think alike. Have fun and talk soon! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yikes. I just ran around in the backyard in the SNOW and it was so cold I decided to come inside to pee instead. Mommie wrapped me in a warm towel and now I'm getting warmer. Glad your foot is better. I think my medicine is working on me 'cause I feel full of energy. Santa will be at our Petsmart soon and we have to go get photos. Last year we didn't get to go. Stay warm and beware of that SNOW 'cause it's cold. Brrrrrr. We worry about you guys, too, so take care of each other! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Warm towels are the best. We walked fast today 'cause it was so cold and now I'm on top of two pillows and wrapped up in old blue. I wore my warm Penn State sweater but it was still a bit chilly and we had snow flurries as we walked. Greta sounds like a good dog friend to play with. Stay warm and cuddle each other. Good night! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yay for you guys and yay for Santa! Starting this weekend, Santa will be at our petsmart so Mommie said we could get a picture this year. My picture from 2 years ago (my 1st christmas) is in our living room. I'm sticking my tongue out in it. That's when Mommie knew I was a spitfire--when I stuck my tongue out at the camera lady! Ha ha! Love to you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Wow! You guys are all ready for Christmas. Mommie still has to work all of this week and all of next week then the FOLLOWING Monday she has grades due. Until she's done, no Christmas for us. Your tree and neighborhood both sound really pretty. We're gonna put a little tree up in our new house and this year I have a fireplace for my stocking. Hope you guys are staying warm! Love from Maddie and her mommie

We haven't even STARTED shopping yet. Hooray for SUV's full of packages. The last time I looked, our SUV was empty, except for my car seat and some coats in the backseat. Maybe my presents are hidden UNDER the coats? Time will tell. We're all gonna TRY to be extra good but I suspect even if we're bad, we'll still get tons of stuff. Who can't spoil a pug? I dare them not to! Love from Maddie (I stole the pillie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I refused to go outside yesterday and today I stayed out for about 3 minutes then ran back to the door! BRRRRRRR. Mommie had a really bad student start cussing her out and yelling today so she's been angry about that. All the other students are mad, too! Even her boss is mad. Sometimes people don't know the abuse teachers take. Glad to hear you're all ready for Christmas. We're not even close but at least this year we have our new home! Stay good (at least until Christmas!!!) Love to you all from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Dear Pugsly, Frankie, Robbie, and Daddie, Unfortunately Mommie's been doing her job a long time and has seen this type of thing before. Grammie and Grampie, however, were very upset and insisted she contact the university police to let them know about this. It's sad that we have to worry about this type of thing. Besides, Mommie has lots of lots of students who she really likes and who really like her so she'll focus on them. Plus they let her know via texts and emails that they have her back. Thanks for your good thoughts. I've been extra good today and snuggled her all last night and napped with her today. Things always look better the next day. Love to my bestest puggy friends from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

That is sooooo funny about Robbie and his happy tail! He's happy 'cause he knows he has a good life and appreciates it--like the rest of us puggies! Stay good and maybe more presents will show up. I was a little bit bad after my nap today but I was just trying to distract my mommie from her busy day. Have a good day and stay WARM!!! Love from Maddie the Baddie and her mommie

hi pugsly, thank you so much for the birthday wishes. unfortunately, mommy's camera is broken so no pictures of my special day, only happy memories of mommy singing to me every second. maybe this santa guy will bring her one. i hear he does things like that. sending you, frankie and robbie lot of kisses (and your daddy too)...rosie and my silly brother, mikey

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hooray! Mommie took me to Petsmart today to see Santa and get my photo! I don't think it was the real Santa, though, cause this Santa was a skinny young girl hiding behind a beard. My paws got tangled up in it and I almost pulled it off! We were the first in line and everyone made a big fuss over me 'cause I had my Penn State turtleneck sweater on and I just sat in Mommie's arms. We got two framed pictures--one will be Grammie and Grampie's present from me. I also saw that I'm getting a BIG stuffed dog that Mommie got for donating to the charity at Petsmart. I pretended I didn't see him but I DID! He's so big and I can't wait to get him. I will put the photo up when we get the link. KFC---yummy! Hope you get some! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yeah, I think santa might have been at another petsmart 'cause this just didn't look like him. Paws crossed that the big dog is for ME. I just came in from running around the backyard in the rain. Mommie has to meet me at the door with the towel so I don't come in the house and roll around all wet. Let's all keep all of our paws together that we all get tons of loot for Christmas! Love you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Mommie worked at home today--together she and I napped on the couch and snuggled. She's very happy that it's finals week and grades are due on Monday. We will all be glad for some time off. Still waiting for my Santa picture to be posted; once it is, I'm gonna put it on pugspot and facebook. Stay warm! We have TONS of snow--Mommie shoveled while I watched out the front window. No wonder she needed a nap! Love from Maddie the Baddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

You're lucky that you don't have any snow. I refuse to go out the door when Mommie opens the door. No shoveling today but it was very cold--about 7 degrees and worse when the wind blew. I'm staying on my pillies! Stay warm and be good (we can go back to being bad soon enough!) Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I LOVE the fireplace, especially when I come in from outside. But the last couple of days, I refused to go outside since snow came up to the door and it was COLD. Grammie gave Grampie a warmie after he was outside shoveling their snow--she put his clothes in the dryer and he loved it. He's turning into a pug maybe? Ha ha. Enjoy your new pillies--be sure to get them squashed down the right way. Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

We have two snow shovels--just in case. You're very lucky to have 70 degree weather and even 50 degree weather. It's a little warmer today and no more snow. Mommie will be done by Monday (or earlier if she can get the grades calculated) and we'll be able to get ready for Christmas. We're going to Grammie and Grampie's, so I hope Santa can find me there. Have a good day and stay warm! Love ya, Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Of course you guys got A's! Pugs always ace Mommie's class (as do pug owners!) Daddie also got an A so he's not a "dumb butt" as you call him. Plus calling Daddie a dumb butt before x-mas is not smart. Wasn't that santa awful?! I think someone stole santa's identity. Poor Grammie and Grampie will be getting that photo--that's all they asked me for this year. Well, I guess we'll just laugh about it. Stay warm. All our love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

At this point, everyone is having so much fun laughing at my Santa picture that it is destined to go down in history. The best part is my puzzled expression. And you're right--Grammie and Grampie will love it anyway--and probably get a good laugh out of it. Make sure to stay warm and have fun! Love you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

That's so funny that Joker ran to your house! Of course he wanted to play with you guys! Wow--he even got to stay for supper. Dinner guests! We're not sure when we leave for Grammie and Grampie's house--it depends on when Mommie gets her work done and gets us all packed. I keep trying to get her to hurry up 'cause I wanna go to Grammie's kitchen (that's where all the good stuff is and Grammie always sneaks me treats when Mommie's not around to see!--and sometimes even when she is around!) We'll keep you posted. Mommie has work to do over break (yuck: how is it a break if she has work?) so she'll be sure to have her computer and have to go to Starbucks to access email. Have fun playing! Don't worry: Christmas will be here SOON! Love from Maddie and her mommie

Hi Guys, I'm laying in front of the downstairs fireplace with my yellow hedgehog while Mommie works. I'm cheering her on, but it's coming out as the sound of a snore. I love the idea of a cooking show at Grammie's! We'd ALL be overweight. No wonder my sister weighed 30 pounds!!! Ha ha! Stay warm! Love from Maddie the Baddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hey guys! We got absolutely NOTHING done today except napping. I think Mommie was just waaaaaaay too tired. We need to get packed and get to Grammie and Grampie's but we don't know when. We thought tomorrow but maybe not. Glad to hear that Daddie is fine. I know what you mean about toys. I wouldn't mind seeing a few new playthings around here! Paws crossed that we ALL get lots of new toys! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

OOOOOOO! It's so cold and we still haven't finished packing yet. I'm on the couch, too, though to be fair Mommie is working. Who's the smart ones? Pugs--every time! Love from Maddie the Baddie

Oops. We sent our last message to us by mistake. Mommie is still learning the new phone. Last night I got to stay up and watch football. I'm trying to be good for one more day! Have a very merry christmas! Love from maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Merry christmas to you all!!! Hope you're having a great xmas so far! I got lots of new toys from grammie and grampie! I even got the big stuffed dog I wanted. Today we get prime rib and grammie said I get some! Have an excellent day. Love to pugsly, frankie, robbie, daddie, and grammie from maddie, mommie, grammie, and grampie!

Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Glad to hear i'm not the only one who names her toys. I am playing with a toy I named monster pal. My big dog is named chance and I chewed his tail last night. Bruce is a good name for a hedgehog. My grammie is very loud when football is on tv. She yells and yells--loudly!--at all the players and refs. I can't get any sleep at all! Have a fun day. Love from maddie!!!

Can't wait to see your big doggie! I'm getting tons of sauce. The problem is Grammie forgets to wipe my face and Mommie catches us! Busted. Love from Maddie!

Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Guys, your pics are exellent! Mommie's dumb phone wasn't letting her comment on the photos though. Your big dog looks kinda like mine! I also got a frog but it is a little different. You all are lucky to get that nice bed. I still can't have one cause I rip them apart. I think we are going home in a couple of days since i've been so bad! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

Hi guys! Wow, you had fireworks for the new year?! How cool! We had fireworks on the fourth of july and we watched from our deck. Sounds like you had a great holiday! We had a quiet day except for everyone yelling at the penn state game then everyone was cranky 'cause we lost. We're heading home tomorrow. Grammie and grampie are going to come, too, even though grammie mad at mommie! Yikes! Hugs and kisses to you all. Love from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

We made it home and grammie and trample are coming later for one night. I guess grammie isn't mad. The bad news is our computer isn't working. Boo. Stay warm and have fun! Love from maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Mommie and grampie are trying to figure out the computer. It is something to do with cable in the family room cause the t.v. won't work either. We had pizza. Yum! Love to all our favorite guys. Maddie and mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Grampie had our computer fixed perfectly--it was a cable wire. Now that he and grammie left it's acting up again. Ugh. We slept all day and could still sleep more. Mommie and grampie went to buy us a new mailbox yesterday and couldn't find the right kind so grampie fixed the old one. Yay for grampie ( but we may have to phone him later about cable. We are getting opposite weather from you. It is cold but no snow. Stay warm! Hugs to everyone! Maddie the sleepy!

I'm bored and getting into all sorts of trouble. Wish I had a sister but I'm so bad my mommie says she couldn't deal with two of me! Are you guys as stir crazy as I am? Love from maddie the baddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Even with new toys I'm still bad. Right now i'm resting on the couch. Glad to hear I'm not the only Pug who's being bad. No snow but it's coming soon. At least we have gas fireplaces to stay warm. Have a good night! Love to you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

We snuggled last night, too. We keep the fireplace roaring to keep warm--both upstairs and downstairs. I'm gonna try to have a good day today but who knows? I might be bad again! For some reason, the cable and therefore computer are working again today. Sometimes I hate electronics. Hope you have a fun day together! Maddie the Baddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

You're right about the cuddling. Maybe that's the only good thing about winter. We slept into then my mommie is going out to lunch so I guess I'll be in charge! Glad Frankie's dilemma got solved. Whew! Hope I get something from this lunch out. Ha! Love maddie and mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hooray! Mommie finally came home and brought me hamburger since we don’t get those too often. Wish I could share it with you guys! It got cold and snow is coming in the next few days. Enjoy your warm day! Love from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Mommie tries to be a good one but I think she feels guilty that I'm a latch key Pug so she spoils me to try to make up for it. Our second fireplace isn't built in and I think you can get them at Lowes. Every morning the internet works so we don’t call the cable company but every afternoon it goes out. I'm making sure we call tomorrow! Stay warm! We like the snow if Mommie doesn't have to drive in it! Love to our favorite boys! Maddie and her Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Pizza! Yipee. We got snow through the night. Maybe only a few inches. It's pretty. I have been shredding toys too. Right now I'm heading to the couch for a nap. Have a good one! Love you guys! Maddie the sleepy.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yay! Marrow bones. You guys are right--we are lucky puts! Mommie will be off work all of next week. Hooray! We got a little more snow but we don’t worry if we don’t have to travel. Have an excellent day and stay warm. Yesterday I walked on the clean part of the deck! Ha ha. Love from me and my Mommie!

I helped with laundry today and now we're watching a program about rare breeds of dogs. My breed isn't rare but I sure am one of a kind! Hope you have enough supplies to last through the snow storm. Stay warm! All our love! Maddie and her Mommie!

Ha ha. You guys are so funny! I'm am a pure bred Maddie, no doubt about it. We'll try to take pictures but today the new phone isn't working but the internet is. Go figure.

Internet is back out. It only seems to work in the morning. Today the new phone wouldn't turn on so that meant a trip to Verizon. Been a busy day but no work is getting done. Ugh. Time for a nap! Love from maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Mommie promises to call cable tomorrow. We ended up napping today. No shoveling for us. As long as our car can pull out of the driveway we don’t worry. Ha ha. Tv time for now. Stay warm and cuddly. Love from maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I'm napping on the couch. We got really lazy during this break and it will be tough when my mommie has to start back to work. Can't wait for summer. It's sad to see our deck covered in snow. Mmmmmm. Bbq sounds delicious. Have fun today! Love from maddie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hooray! We got our cable fixed finally! Yay! Now we don't have to rely on the phone and can type more quickly on the computer. Very quiet day, cold and no reason to leave the nice warm house. We had both fireplaces on today. Now that we have the computer working again, we're down in the family room and I'm on a squished pillie. Ahhh, bliss! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

We're nice and warm and snuggly down in the family room. We put the fireplace on and I'm working on a chicken- flavored bone chewy. Not too much going on. Mommie has work to do but is too lazy. She better get used to working again 'cause work starts again next week. I think my mommie is spoiled but Grammie says Mommie spent so many years in school that she deserves it. I guess as long as she keeps me living in the manner I've become accustomed to! Ha ha. Love to all my favorite guys from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Well, everyone was planning for snow but it must have missed us. We're gonna try to do worktoday so we'll see how that goes. Right now we're both on the couch snuggling. Stay warm! Love to you guys from us girls!

We are getting lots of heavy snow but aren't worried as long as we don't have to go anywhere. I played with my new fish then fell asleep with him in my mouth. We plan to cuddle on the couch and watch television together tonight. Stay safe and warm. Love from maddie!

I didn't really run very far yesterday. I just went out on the patio then I peed by the back of the house. It snowed and snowed yesterday and I'm still on the couch this morning so I don't know how many inches there are. I think I'll stay inside today--under the warm blankets and on top of the pillies! Ha ha. Love from Maddie and her mommie!

Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I've been laying around and getting bored. Mommie opened the back door yesterday because I was scratching on it but the snow was up to the door so I did NOT want to go out! Ha ha. I think I'll stay in from now on! Stay warm and love to you all! Maddie

Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I'm getting bored, bored, bored. Mommie worked most of today and still isn't done. We napped a little and played with my big dog Chance. Maybe I'll try to convince Mommie to take me to Petsmart but I know she has to finish her files. Maybe she'll want a break. Keep scoring those treats. We had peanut butter toast for dinner. Yummy! Love from Maddie!

My sick toys come out of the recovery room when they get stitches. Last night I chewed the earmuffs off Frosty Frog and was working on ripping off and eating his scarf before my mommie caught me and took him away. I'm a tiny bit bad with toys. Hope your snow melts. Ours will be here a while since the days are still too cold. Brrrr. Love from Maddie the Baddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yay--you got to go to the park. I was stuck at home 'cause Mommie was invited out to lunch. At least she brought me some back. Our snow is not melting since it's too cold. I took all of MY toys out last night too. I found all sorts of wonderful old toys I haven't seen in ages. I think it pays to be mischievous sometimes. How is Joker enjoying the snow? I think I'll be lazy today but you never know. I could be wild and bad! Have a good day and stay warm! Love and hugs from Maddie!

I LOVE when pizza rings the doorbell and comes to visit. We may have some today. Mommie starts back to work on Wednesday (school officially starts Tuesday but she doesn't have classes or meetings that day. She'll work Wednesday, Thursday (meeting), and Friday. She is spoiled but she does bring lots of work home. She's gonna hate getting out of a nice warm bed while I cuddle back into the blankets. That's love, I guess. It should get warmer later in the week. For now stay warm and have fun with each other! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yummy yum! Pizza for breakfast! That's our favorite. Mommie worked hard earlier and now we both just got up from a nap. I'm starting to get hungry. Today I tried to walk on the deck but only one board was clean and I was like a fat ballarina pug trying to stay on that one board! Ha ha! I promise you guys I'll try to be good! Maddie.

OH, no, not predatorpug. They are so kind and fun to talk to. Do you remember the title of the forum? I'd like to send my condolences for poor little Kamuko. Oh dear. Unfortunately, I understand exactly what that loss feels like. Thanks for telling us. Love to you on a sad day.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yeah, I found it. She sounds devastated and that's the worst feeling. I lost my Rosie a few years ago (before I got Maddie) and it nearly killed me. Have you ever lost any? To me, there is no greater loss. I told her I was here if she needs to talk or vent. So sad. Love back to you guys. Love and appreciate each other today--and every day! Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Thanks for your words of comfort. This has been such a sad loss. I don’t imagine the loss ever gets any easier. Today was certainly touched with sadness. Our love, hugs, and kisses to you and the boys. Love from us girls.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Robbie, you must never run away. You could get hurt. Please listen to daddie. We don’t want anything bad to happen to you. We were very sad yesterday. Today mommie will be working home today and her classes start tomorrow. Some of her friends had to start today. Yuck. I'm gonna be especially good today and all week. Love and hugs to you guys from us gals!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I have 5 dog toyboxes and one big giant tub full of toys. Plus I have a whole bunch in the closet who need stitches. I was good today and was clingy with my mommie when she finally got home. I might stay up and watch idol but I'm pretty sleepy. Idol without Simon? No fun. Maybe Stephen Tyler will make it good. Have a good night and sleep well--or play hard--depending on when you get this! Love from maddie and her mommy!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

That's a good trick. I pretended I couldn't jump on Grammie and Grampie's bed until Grampie had a sandwich, then I was right up there! Ha ha! We are very happy cause mommie has a snow day today!!! No work! We get an extra day of weekend. I'm gonna rest now but later I plan to play, play, play! Have a fun day! Love from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

My sister had two bad knees. One of Mommie's students used to say Rosie had a trick knee from an old football injury. Actually, Sister had to have two operations on her back knees (one on each). It was called a luxating patella (trick knee!) and Mommie used to have to drive Sister an hour to Savannah for a special vet. But she got better. I agree about the lack of treats. NO FAIR. I'd go on strike. Daddie will watch you and take good care of you. We have TONS of snow and it's cold (like 1 degree) but yesterday I insisted on going outside to pee by the side of the house. I came in and after I got toweled off, I ran to the fireplace. Hope you guys have a good weekend. Tell Robbie his butt will be okay but to look extra sad so he can get extra treats. Love from Maddie the baddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Poor Pugsly. I know he's not feeling well and that's the worst feeling ever. I'm sure that Daddie will take excellent care of him. Sounds like you're also scoring extra treats, too. Cuddle therapy is especially effective. When Mommie went to work this morning it was 0. Brrrrrr. She'll have a busy week so I'm gonna try to be good. Take care of each other and give Pugsly extra love and attention. Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hi guys! I'm getting a little stir crazy myself. Too much time indoors and I need some action. Sorry to hear about your knee. It was a long time ago when sister had her knees operated on, probably almost ten years. All I can tell you about the luxating patella is that it has to do with something grinding in the knee and causing pain and limping. The first thing the doctor told Sister was she had to lose weight cause being heavy is hard on the knees. As for specifics, I don't remember too much else. She was operated on then had STAPLES in her leg and it looked really painful. Maybe they've made advancements since then. The good news is that her knees were great after that. I wish I could remember more. I'll see if I can find some of Rosie's old files and find any more info for you. The good news is that it can be taken care of. Have you asked anyone on the pugspot forum? They may be more up to date than me. Take care and kisses all around!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Pugsly, we've been worried about you and your leg. Any new developments there? As for the dog park, that sounds wonderful. No chance of me getting outside. I went out in the backyard over the weekend and got so much mud on my feet--between my toes even-- that Mommie said no more outside when it's messy. I almost needed a whole bath. Mommie's back to work so I've been sleeping a lot and then we play when she comes home. Can't wait for the weekend. We got spoiled last week with the day off! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hi guys! Mommie's school canceled yesterday at 2:00 but she was done by 1:00. They're doing an awful lot of cancelling, which they don't normally do but I'm happy cause then I get my mommie home more. She's not driving in for a meeting today and plans to work (and play) at home. Glad your knee is doing better. Daddie will take excellent care of you. My sister used to have steps for the bed but I won't use them and I can't get up on the bed alone 'cause it's too high. Just be careful. Stay warm and have lots of fun today. Maybe we'll get ANOTHER snow day tomorrow. Yay! Love and hugs from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

You were right! It's been very cold here. Mommie let me go outside but I got all muddy--even between my toes! I had to get all washed down. You guys are lucky to meet so many dogs. I think we're gonna have a quiet day. Stay warm! Hugs from Maddie the lazy!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I've been bored and lazy. Mommie missed work yesterday and she still feels lousy. I played a little but I think it will be a quiet night for me. I was only a little bit bad today. Love ya! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Poor Pugsly, are you acting out cause you don't feel well or are you just bored like the rest of us puggies (and some people?) Dogsitting sounds like fun. I think I'll go back to bed! Have fun! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Ha, ha. We had ghetti's, too. Great minds think alike. I'm sleeping in while Mommie's at work. She doesn't know I can sneak onto her laptop when she's gone and play on the computer all day! Ha ha. Love from Madison Rose

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

No computer for me today 'cause my Mommie's working at home today. I think we got snow and ice but I haven't been out--and don't plan to go out. No sneaking on the computer for today. Ha ha! Love from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Wow! Now that's cold!!! I'm still laying on the couch and I think I'll use my papers to pee on today. We had some ice and Grammie fell last night but since she landed on her butt she didn't hurt herself. Still, she had to go to the hospital, which she hated. Now that it's over it's kinda funny but when she first told us, we were upset. Grampie told her she IS a pain in the butt and now she HAS a pain in the butt. We're always hoping for school closings on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (and any Tuesday or Thursday when Mommie has meetings!) Everyone keep your paws crossed that we don't have school tomorrow and that Phil doesn't see his shadow! Stay warm and be careful! Love ya! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hooray for phil the groundhog! Mommie's students told her he didn't see it and they were all happy. There was even a rainbow when Mommie walked to her first class! How funny. Glad you got your warmie! I'm too afraid of the hairdryer so I get a warm towel. I didn't know phil predicted for the superbowl. If you live where we live, just south of Pittsburgh, you HAVE to be a steelers fan. We'll see how well phil did with his predictions! Love to all you boys from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I think we're all just bored, bored, bored. I miss running around in my backyard and playing in the sun and grass. I dug through my toyboxes the other day and found some old friends. I can't wait to see the puppybowl--especially when they have pugs on! Stay warm and have fun! Love from Maddie the Baddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yeah, it's boring but today's Friday, which means my mommie will be home with me for two whole days. How nice that you both napped in the doggie bed. I bet that's a cute picture. Maybe your daddie can take one and post it. Our weather is getting warmer but not that warm. Now everything is melting and mud is everywhere. Yuck. Mommie's been talking about a bath this weekend so I'm gonna try to distract her. Love from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Wow, you guys have pug money! I have money from when my teeth fell out but I think maybe mommie used that to help buy our new house. She's supposed to go to the store today before she comes home so I have my paws crossed that she brings me something yummy. LOVE your photos of the bed! Licks and wags from Madison Rose (who is extremely stinky!!!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yay! Mommie brought home food and goodies. She even bought me a new toy cause I've been bored but good. Yesterday Grammie had to go to the hospital. Turns out she fractured her pubic bone in a couple of places. We talked to her this morning (well, Mommie talked and I snorted into the phone.) She'll have to stay there to get therapy and cause they don’t want her to fall again. She's sad she'll be in the hospital for the superbowl. We offered to drive home but they said not to. Keep all of your paws crossed that my grammie feels better quick! Love from maddie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Thanks for all of your good thoughts for my grammie. I figure with all our paws crossed--well, that's a lofts paws. We just spoke to her and she's adjusting to the hospital. Grampie brought her Steelers shirt and she's sending Grampie home so he doesn't have to hang around the hospital. I got my bath and I was soooo good. I stood perfectly still and even let Mommie use the dryer on me. Now I'm napping on the pillow. Hope you guys are having a great day! Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I just got off the phone with grammie and she laughed when she heard about your message and said to tell you guys thanks and that she's a tough old lady. She has her Paulamalu(sp?) shirt on over her hospital gown. The nurses said she's so funny. She told them not to bother her at all once the game starts! My grammie is lots of fun, as you can see. We want her better. Grampie snuck pizza into the hospital yesterday!! Ha ha. That's why I love my grammie! Yeah, the bath and dryer made me sleepy and cozy. Rest up for the game and thanks for your love and good wishes! Love from Maddie and mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Chicky lucky! Hooray. We got a bunch of snow so I'll be staying in. Grammie may have to stay in the hospital for a whole month. Mommie and Grampie are planning a way to sneak me into the hospital! I promise to be real quiet and hide. Stay warm and have fun. Love to you all from Maddie and mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Grammie was a little cranky this morning so she must be on the mend. She likes the idea of me and her being roommates in the hospital. She said I can lay in the other bed, pull the tray up to the bed, tie a napkin around my neck, and order lunch. We do know a therapy dog named Mollie and she's VERY well behaved (nothing like me!) Maybe SHE can go cheer up Grammie. Thanks for all your love and support, we all appreciate it, especially Grammie! Love from Maddie and Mommie! P.S. In my previous post, I meant to say "chicky licky"--that darn smart phone corrects things that aren't even wrong!!!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Grammie's been cranky with us and with Grampie and he's doing the best he can. He brought spaghetti to her yesterday. I think the meds are making her cranky but I'm not there to ask the doctor. I'm gonna check the internet to see if vicodin can make a person cranky. One of Mommie's students said it made him sleep--A LOT! It would be nice if Mollie could go see her. She's so sweet. I'm staying inside. No Maddie day for Mommie today but it it soooooooo coooooooold. It's about 3 degrees and even less with wind chill. Yuck. Poor Mommie has to walk on campus in the freezie weather. I think there's a nap with my name on it, too. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yeah, Grampie made his own ghettos. If I was there I could help him. It's 3 degrees now and Mommie can work at home today. When she has a good schedule and few meeting, she can work at home on days when she doesn't teach. Chicky licky is my favorite. I think we are gonna stay in today. Brrrrrr. Love to our favorite guys. Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Wow! 30 sounds good. Right now it's 10 and that's warmer than yesterday. TGIF and then we get a few days off! I'm sure you guys are great helpers. Grampie's ghettis are really Grammie's ghettis since she freezes her sauce so all we have to do is thaw the sauce and cook the ghettis. Are you excited about remodeling? That sounds excellent. Here's hoping it gets warm for you guys so you can take a walk. I don't even remember what a walk is anymore, though we do play a lot of games in the family room downstairs. Good thing there's lots of room for me to run around in. Have an excellent day and stay warm! Love you! Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Oh no! Daddie has to be more careful. That's exactly what Grammie did. Is he okay? Be careful if you walk. You might all get to room with Grammie. Yesterday we had flowers sent to her and she loved them! Grampie had to work and Mommie's hair stylist came to the hospital to fix her hair. She felt a little better. Hope you guys have an excellent day but beware of ice! Love from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Whew! Glad to hear Daddie is okay. I haven't been outside but I'm happy to stay in the warm house. We're gonna try to have a quiet day but you never know. We sent Grammie flowers and cards and pictures of ME! Hope they make her laugh! Love from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Grammie did like the flowers and we got her silk ones 'cause they last. She hates for us to spend money on flowers when they die so soon. Hooray for Petco and Daddie. My sister used to use steps to get into bed but I won't. Guess I don't get the concept either! It's already 50 degrees and it's only 6:30 am! Maybe I can go outside later. Grammie did like the pictures. She said they all needed a laugh and everyone thought they were funny. Why do people think I look funny? Happy Valentine's Day to my favorite guys! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Thanks for our your love and good wishes. Grammie is feeling a bit better. It started out warm but now it is dark and cold and windy. We were hoping Punxy Phil was right but maybe not. Hope you are all having an excellent day. Love from us to all of you!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yikes! Who knew a fun walk could be so filled with horror! I definitely need to get my nails cut but I am sooooooo bad they sometimes can't / won't do it. Maybe if I sleep all day and lay low........ha ha! Love you guys from maddie and mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Ha ha. You showed him who is boss. Mommie is at a boring workshop right now (that explains the texting! ). Guess I'm safe on the nails this week since Mommie has a meeting tomorrow. I think I'll lay low. Hope you have a good day! Love to you all from us girls! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

We're waiting to hear today officially that Grammie can come home today but it looks pretty good. I won't be able to go see her for a while since I'm too wild and might re-injure her but we'll be sending her out love and yours, too. Thanks for sending it. It's been getting warmer and warmer but Mommie's been too busy to take me out. Maybe today. Talk to you soon and have an excellent day. Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hi boys! Yesterday was so warm that I finally got to take Mommie for a walk and then we played in the yard. Maybe we played too hard cause Mommie's off sick today. Grammie got home yesterday and seems to be settling in. Grampie has work today so she'll be on her own. Time for her to get lots of sleep and heal. Too bad I can't visit her but everyone is afraid I'm too rough and wild. Guess I'll just keep calling her and sending funny pictures and cards. Enjoy the weather while you can! Maybe Punxy Phil was right! Spring who be a good birthday present for me and Mommie in March. Love to you all! Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I'm afraid you may be right about the weather getting colder again. I was able to play in the backyard yesterday twice then I come in to lay on the couch. Seems like a good morning to sleep in so I haven't left the couch yet. We're starting to think about what to plan for my birthday. I'll be THREE on March 2nd and Mommie will be 100 on March 20th. She and I are both pisces girls. We also get spring break right around my birthday. Yay! Hope you get outside lots today! Love to you guys from us girls.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yesterday was still a little warm but got colder by the end of the day. Every time I went out to play, I came in quicker and quicker! I had LOTS of fun outside but I'm gonna lay around today. Grammie seems to be taking it easy and getting lots of rest. Grampie must be a good nurse. My sister used to be a good nurse cause she would snuggle quietly next to whoever was sick. Me--I'm still a bit too lively. Ha ha. Hope you guys have an excellent day! Love from both of us to all of you guys! Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I went outside a couple of times yesterday but it was cold and last night it snowed and rained. It's soooooo cold today that I'm happy to stay at home and sleep. Poor Mommie had to go out in that mess. Yuck. I'm glad to be spoiled. Nice to know I'm not the only hyper one. My sister was very laid back and could stay home alone--with NO pen--when she was 2 but I'll be in that darn cage forever. I'm waaaaaaay too bad. Thanks for the love for Grammie. A nap sounds good so I'll talk to you later. Love from us girls to all you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Thanks for my treats, guys. We got a big snow and ice storm. Classes at 8:00 have been cancelled but mommie still has a meeting at 12:30--12:45. Yes, 15 lousy minutes. But it's her promotion interview so she can't miss it. Too bad they didn't cancel for tomorrow. Paws crossed that they do. In the meantime I'll be hanging out on the couch then later the pen. You guys are lucky--no pen for you. Have a good day and stay warm. Brrrrrrr. Love and hugs from maddie the baddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Mommie's meeting was okay but maybe useless. She had to go in front of the university promotion committee and answer questions and talk about why she should be promoted. The problem is the university doesn't like to promote people cause it's expensive for them. The problem is Mommie works with people who LIED about their credentials so those people will probably get promoted. Mommie's boss and the department is really mad about it. So I may need you to come to CAL and set some of these people straight. A pack of pugs putts do it and the boss's dog--who bites--offered to visit the school. Anyway, sorry for the rant but this has been on my mind and Mommie's a lot. Sorry to hear your big dog is sick. I'm certain Daddie will make him better. Have an excellent day! Love ya! Maddie

Daddie says he's never seen a bunch of bureaucrats who's butts didn't pucker up when spending money is involved. Getting teachers is easy the hard part is finding ones that care about there job and there students. It's not a job it's an adventure. Fluffy is out of the emergency room and all stitched up and doing fine.Robbie and me napped in the doggie bed this morning and will walk later. yesterday I only went to the corner and then came home. It was to windy for me. Tell mommie we love her and hope everything works out. Love to our favorite girls, Pugsly

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Ha ha! Mommie says to tell Daddie that's EXACTLY what's going on and she likes the way he thinks. Something about puckering--I didn't get it but she thought it was hilarious! She also agrees it's quite an adventure. She appreciates your support and understanding. The most important thing is that she's tenured this year (that means permanent she told me) but we won't know till summer. So glad Fluffy's feeling better. My big dog, Chance, is pretty good except I suck on his tail and it's all stiff. Mommie says she's surprised he's holding up so well. I haven't been outside since the rain hit. We only had a day or two of nice weather last week and now we're stuck back in. Glad it's Friday so Mommie and I can spend some time together. Thanks for all of your love and support. We send hugs and kisses to our favorite guys! Love from Maddie (I have to determine what kind of cupcake I want for my birthday next week! Yay!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Thanks so much for sending me treats. I'm still planning my birthday cupcake. The weather has been cold and rainy so we're staying in. The weekend is here so even if Mommie has to grade papers, she'll at least be home with me. Next Wednesday is my birthday and that Friday spring break starts. Grammie wants us to visit but my mommie is afraid I'll be too excited and rough. We'll see. You're lucky to have Daddie do your laundry. Ours keeps piling up in the hampers. Time for bed so sleep well and good job getting on that bed! Love to our favorite boys from maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I'm working hard to be good. Mommie will try to grade papers fast (hard to do) because Grammie says she misses me and has to see me. We have lots to do this week and over break. Are you guys getting bored with bad weather? I miss the early spring we started to have. Gotta go! Time for a nap. Have fun today. Pug hugs and kisses! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yay! I am so glad you guys are having nice weather. Right now we just have a bunch of mud. Yuck. I think Grammie convinced Mommie to take me for a visit so I can't wait for spring break AND my birthday. Have fun playing and we'll talk soon! Love to you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Despite the mud, I went outside yesterday 'cause Trixie and Maxie from next door were at the fence calling for me (well, mostly Trixie 'cause Maxie doesn't bark). Anyway, me and Maxie exchanged kisses through the fence. We had a horrible night's sleep. We had thunder and lightening all night and Mommie had to drive to work in that. Yuck. You guys had an excellent. Your grammie sounds like mine--when they take care of us, they REALLY take care of us. Pancakes AND chicky licky AND cookies. Maybe we should all just take a road trip and travel between your grammie and mine. We'll eat sooooo good. Mommie says it's gonna be a long day so I hope it goes fast. Love to all you guys from us girls!

Yesterday was a looking day. By the time Mommie got home, it was getting dark. She felt so guilty that she hand fed me my dinner. Ha ha. Today Mommie doesn't have to go on campus but she has a lot of work to do. I'll help her out by napping on the couch! Have an excellent day! 1 more day til my birthday! Love from ME!

Thank you guys sooooo much for my birthday wishes! I can't believe I'm three today. Mommie promises to take lots of photos and maybe video. She still hasn't gotten me my cupcake yet but I think I spotted a couple of new toys I wasn't supposed to see! I did get a card from Grammie and Grampie plus a card from Mommie's boss's dog, Buster. He even put a treat inside the envelope. Mwah back to you guys and party hardy! Love to my favorite guys! Madison Rose

Hi guys! Thanks so much for all your wonderful treats and birthday wishes. Once Mommie finally got home, we had my cupcake celebration but now Mommie has to determine how to get the video from the new phone to the internet (the usual methods aren't working. I was on such a sugar high that I wanted nothing to do with new toys so I'll play with those when I'm not so preoccupied with cupcakes. One toy is a hamburger, one is a hot dog, and one is a cupcake. Since they aren't real, they're not as fun as the real thing! Hope you guys had an excellent day! Love and hugs to all our favorite guys from maddie and mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Yeah, the rest of those cupcakes are haunting me. Only one more day of work and then we get spring break. Grammie really wants to see me but Mommie is afraid that me and Grammie's walker together aren't a good mix. Still, I think we're gonna visit them 'cause Grammie says she misses me and my little face. Do you think I have her wrapped around my little paw? Anyway, I'll play more with the toys when I don't have cupcakes to worry about. Plus Mommie has to get the video from her phone to the computer. Me eating a cupcake is hilarious and I burp really loudly at the end! I'm not very lady-like I guess. Hope you guys are doing well. Mommie's birthday will be next then it will Robbie's and my gotcha days. Hooray! Love to all our favorite guys! MWAH!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hi guys. We're still home. We haven't figured out when to go see Grammie and Grampie. Right now Mommie is getting a sore throat so we may stick around Washington for a while. I'm not allowed to bring muddy paws in either so yesterday I went out before the rain. Since it rained last night, I'll probably play inside today. Hope you guys have a great day! Love to you all!

Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Ft. Lauderdale sounds really good right now, especially since it started snowing last night and is still coming down. Grammie doesn't want us driving in any snow so Mommie's gonna try to get caught up on work she didn't finish before the break. I say it's a good day to snuggle. Love to our favorite guys from your favorite girls! Mwah!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I had a relaxing day and napped most of yesterday. I kept wanting to go outside but it was too messy. When we spoke to Grammie, she sounded tired and Grampie is getting a cold. Mommie is afraid they may not be up for a visit from us. We'll see. Hope you have a fun day! Love to you all! Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Grampie is still a little sick but has been working extra days. That makes Mommie worry. She tells them to stay home and get well and if they need something, tell her. I keep trying to go outside but it's a mud festival out there. I spent part of yesterday in the window looking for the 5 chauauas (sp?) And Maxie and Trixie but no one is d going outside at all. Can't wait for real spring and summer! Love from Maddie to all of you!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

You are soooooo funny with your impatient and tapping paw. Ha ha! Sure, I'll sit for a treat. Heck I'll fly through. I went outside for a while yesterday to run around the yard cause Mommie was gone getting our taxes done. Yay! Boy, this spring break thing is turning out to be more work than fun. At least we're getting a tax refund. Mommie joked with the tax lady about claiming me as a dependent. Hope you guys get outside and have lots of fun! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Ha ha! Robbie working on his tan! Cracks me up! Did he get any "fawner"? We spoke to Grampie and he doesn't think they are up for a visit. He's still sick but he's working extra to help out a coworker. Mommie worries about them. No outside yesterday but maybe today. This morning my mommie almost caused a flood in our new kitchen. She turned on the water to fill the sink and FORGOT about. Our sink must have been made with her in mind cause most of it just ran to the right side of the sink--only a little on the floor and that was from the she's. I think I'm gonna get a life jacket--just in case! Love you guys! Mwah! Maddie

Hooray for the dog park. We got a lizzard (that means blizzard). It looks pretty but I suspect I'll be playing indoor games again today. Already our break is gonna be over. I'm going to nap now and stir up trouble later! Have an excellent day! Love to all of you from both of us.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Ha ha! Daddie had to go to the groomer's! Did they do a good job? We did get snow but it's melting pretty quickly. Only bad thing is that means mud. Mommie has two days to grade 22 papers. Why did she put them off? No wonder she couldn't enjoy her break. People don’t realize the work teachers have to do outside of class. Yuck. Glad you guys are having good weather. The first day of spring is almost here. I know that cause it's Mommie's birthday that day. I have to think about what to get for her. Maybe I'll give her a day of me being good! Ha ha. She'll know how much work I put into that! Hope you guys have a day full of fun. Don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead this weekend. That means we're one hour closer to Mommie going back to work. Love to you all from Maddie and Mommie.

Hi Pugsly! Hi Madison Rose! Do you still remember me? George & I are back... and there's 3 of us now. We have baby Frank. I miss you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Not fair. Daddie should have had to get his nails and ears done. Did he get furminated? Our snow melted so fast that I got outside three times yesterday. Only brought in a little mud and Mommie caught me at the door and wiped my feet with baby wipes. Those things are useful. You're right about Mommie's birthday. It is next Sunday. Grammie is already teasing her about it. Grammie says she'll be 39 in july and mommie will have her annual 29 th birthday. Ha ha. Yeah, break was fast and mommie worked during a lot of it. She doesn't have any idea how she's gonna get up at five tomorrow. Yikes. Hope you guys have a fun day today. All our love from Maddie and mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Terrible day. Mommie was literally up all night and has had a terrible headache for two days. She is miserable. I got to go outside a couple of times and we both slept all day. It's so dumb that the school makes teachers log into the state system when they're taking a sick day. Now I ask you guys, when you're sick do you REALLY want to get on the computer. I'd do it for her but I can't reach the computer! Mommie is glad you think she's less than 29. She's really much more (she'll be 47) and the teasing cards have started already. Grammie says at least people always guess the two of them are younger than they really are. Today she looks REALLY bad. Hope you guys are enjoying your day and got your supper when you were hungry yesterday! Love you guys! Maddie and her sick mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

You tell that doctor that your daddie is anything but dull. How could he be dull with you three guys around? Speaking of doctors, Grammie is going to get drags today to see if she is healing. They told her no steps so she went down on her butt--the worst thing ever for her break. She'll never listen. She and Grampie want to come visit this weekend for Mommie's birthday so that will be EXCELLENT! I sent Mommie a card via Grammie and she laughed and laughed. That's great news about George. We were afraid something happened to him. Enjoy your day and your early supper!! Ha ha. Love to all of you from both of us!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Happy birthday to Grammie! I sure hope you guys got a great doggie bag 'cause you deserve it. A dinosaur! I'm sure she's not that old, but that sounds like something my grammie would say. Yeah, smart phones are really dumb phones. Grammie went to the doctor yesterday and he says her breaks are healing nicely. She still has to be on the walker for two more weeks then a cane. She's very excited. She can even do a few steps. We're gonna keep paws crossed for her. Mommie's still sick but hopefully on the mend. Hope you guys are still celebrating and tell your Grammie that me and my mommie both with her a terrific birthday--filled with hugs AND pugs! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

OH, nothing worse than a skimpy doggie bag. By definition, the doggie bag should be loaded with goodies for the doggies. What was in it? 70 sounds excellent. Our weather is moving in that direction. Yay! My sister used to have trouble breathing so if Frankie needs a stroller, I say go for it. If I could get someone to push me around, I'd love it. Mommie does feel a bit better and she says thanks for asking. We both wanted the break to last longer and the students are being sweet about her missing (actually they love it as long as they get notified BEFORE they show up for class. A boy in her tech writing class set her up on a system that requires only one text message to notify all 100+ students. That works for everyone!) I doubt there will be lots of partying but we'll try. Love to our favorite guys from your favorite girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Shrimp and lobster--yum! No wonder there wasn't much left. The stroller sounds like a good idea. If we got one, Mommie would probably want me to push HER! Be careful if you get one. My sister once jumped out of a wagon cause she got scared and she cut her chin. Ouch! The hearts were excellent but Mommie isn't sure she did it right. She tried to send one back but maybe just posted on her own wall by accident. Tell your daddie thanks! Well, off to nap on the couch. Have a fun day! Love to our favorite guys from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Wow--you're making it onto the steps. Just a little more and you'll be up there. We had nice weather yesterday and I walked with my mommie and asked to go outside in the backyard to play (I stand by the door!) I even saw Trixie and Maxie when I was out on the deck. Trixie looked up and barked hello but Maxie kept looking for me in the yard. He didn't realize he needed to look up to see me. Maybe you can get a double stroller and you can both ride. I got the hearts yesterday--tell Daddie I said thanks for thinking of me. I couldn't get yesterday's message to work so maybe I'll get it figured out today. Grammie and Grampie are driving up tomorrow morning and will stay till Sunday. Grammie will still be on a walker (funny to think of my feisty grammie on a walker) so I will try to be good. Problem is I get so excited. Hope you guys have a great day filled with lots of pugs and hugs! Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hello guys! Thanks for all the birthday messages for Mommie. We had a good time with Grammie and Grampie this weekend and I was very good around Grammie (except when I work up at 3 a.m. and woke her up to play!) We got a new porch swing (ours died a couple of years ago) and combined with the christmas grill, our deck will be very busy this summer. I got a bath (grammie and grampie thought that was sooooo funny!) then we went to petsmart and got my nails cut. Yuck. Then we spent the day in the yard and today I am kind of sniffly. I may have allergies--whatever those are. Tell Daddie to try looking in pennysaver books or want ads to see if he can find a stroller. I'm so glad all of us pugs are able to get out of the house and enjoy the weather. After all, we've been cooped up all winter being good (well, sorta!) so we earned the right to play! Here's hoping you have more good weather coming your way! Enjoy! Love to all of you from both of us!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Mommie is so dumb she posted our last two messages on OUR board. I think she needs to stop thinking about work and start thinking more about me. I went outside THREE times yesterday after she got home. I love tearing around my back yard and then poking in all of the bushes and flowers. We're already starting to get buds and blooms will be coming soon. Last week Mommie got daffodils for the American Cancer Daffodil Days plus a stuffed animal. I usually get the toy but when Grammie saw it, she wanted it so I gave it to her. After all, she does a LOT for me. But what a grown woman wants with a daffodil bear is beyond me. Maybe she plays with it!!! Hope you're having a good day and get outside and enjoy the weather. We're hoping the rain holds off--which it has done for the last couple of days. Paws crossed. Love to you guys from us girls! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Ha ha! Robbie eating a bag of rolls! Hilarious. I swear us pugs should have our own tv show-- we are soooo funny! I think Grammie wanted the bear cause she took ours last year and they are some sort of collector' item from the cancer society. Anyway, it's okay cause I still have the one I got before. The weather has been good except the rain late yesterday. Mommie fell down the steps at work and wasn't even wearing heels. She didn't get hurt but she aches today. She was more worried about her phone. We hope Daddie is sleeping better. Is he worried about something. Try to cuddle him and cheer him up. Mommie has to go judge some essays for a contest. Ugh. We love you all! From us!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

You have to be good or you'll lose bed privileges. Plus Robbie might chew you back. Were you paying him back for eating the rolls? That's soooo funny. I LOVE the pizza man (or lady). My mommie was thinking maybe pizza tonight to celebrate the weekend. yay. Plus she won't have to cook and plus we haven't had pizza in a long time. Yes, Greensburg is about an hour from where we now live (Washington) and only half and hour from where we used to live (Belle Vernon). We know that if a tornado comes that we are gonna hide under the stairs in the family room, which is on the lowest floor. I think you're right--being clumsy does run in the family. Yesterday I went outside three times and mommie and I napped after she did her work. I had to visit with the 4 puppies in the other yard. We call from my fence to theirs. Hope the pizza was good and that there are leftovers for today. Mommie says she'll try to send more jokes to Daddie. She never knows when she's gonna get them and some of them may not be appropriate. I don't know what that means but it sounds bad and my mommie has a foul mouth, whatever that means. Have a pug-wonderful day! Love from Maddie and of course her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

A dog park sounds excellent! You'll have to take photos! I love leftover pizza--and pizza in general. We didn't get pizza or anything. Mommie came home from work and we napped all afternoon. By then, she didn't want to cook or eat so we grazed on snacks instead of having supper! Whoa--i hope THAT doesn't happen often. Hope the weather is nice today. Have an amazing day! Love to you boys from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

We had a lazy day, too. It's been getting colder but I still go outside. I just come back in real fast. I hope you're good for Grammie and that Daddie has fun. If you practice your sad look, Grammie may give you extra treats. Have a WONDERFUL day! Love from us to you! Mwah!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Oh no, I hope you aren't sick. Maybe you were just upset 'cause you missed Daddie. I hope you feel better soon. I do that sometimes and usually I'm not sick when it happens. Did you have fun with Grammie? I'm going to stay with my grammie and grampie when Mommie goes on vacation in July. I guess they don't allow dogs at the beach. You guys sound like you're all in your places. I was bad this morning. Usually when Mommie gets up (at 5:00!) I just keep sleeping but this morning I started to chew the stuffing out of the blanket then I started tazzing around the house so Mommie couldn't catch me. My downfall was when I ran behind the pen and trapped myself. Mommie laughed, scooped me up, and said that I'd never learn that going back there is a trap. I still got my morning cheerios and lovies then I curled up and went back to sleep under my blankets in the pen. Our weather got really cold so I only went outside for a few minutes at a time. Brrrrrr. Have a good week to you, too. Love to you all! Maddie (and her mommie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hope you're feeling better. We didn't get snow but someone at work told Mommie we might get snow this week. Yuck. I like to run around in the backyard. Mommie got up to make coffee and I stole her pillie. Ha ha. Now she has to grade papers and I get the day off. Stay warm and get into some mischief today! Love to you guys from us girls. Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Glad to hear you guys were so helpful. It will be exciting to have a new bathroom. Tell Daddie to get you a big time that you can all fit in! I finally allowed Mommie to steal her pillie back, and now I have my own. I did enjoy having two, though. We didn't get snow yet, but we may get some today. Yuck. Mommie is still grading papers and wants to get them done and out of the way. She has an important meeting tomorrow regarding her tenure at the university and all our fingers and paws are crossed. She has to meet with the university-wide tenure committee and has no idea how to prep for this meeting or what they may ask her. I think she'll be okay. Just kinda dumb to have to drive all the way to work for a 10--15 minute meeting. Keep your paws crossed for her PLEASE. We love our new house and would hate to lose it. Keep me posted on the new bathroom--and let me know if I need to bring my bucket! Love ya!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Mommie has her tenure meeting tomorrow. One of her friends gave her some pointers for facing the committee. Mommie's goal is just not to say or do anything dumb--that will be a successful meeting in her eyes. I'm sure you weren't trying to be difficult. You were just out of sorts. It happens and I'm sure no one is angry with you. We got SNOW this afternoon and I've been stuck inside. Hope spring comes and stays this time. Time to steal the pillies and cuddle up. We may not even watch idol since it's so boring this season. Have a good night! Love to you all! Maddie and her mommie.

Thanks for thinking about us last week. We had hail and stuff but the Tornando was on the other side of town from us! We were very lucky but there were alot of familys who were not.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Mommie's heading out. She has her hair pulled back like Marion the Librarian (whoever that is) and she hates it. This morning I've been running all around, making her try to catch me. Are you still being finicky today?! Ha ha. I just settled down on my pillie (in the cage, of course ) so time for a little nap. Hugs and kisses all around. Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Mommie thinks the meeting went well. She was in the meeting for 30 min. and isn't sure if that's standard or not. She knew some of the people on the committee and according to body language (nodding, smiling) of others, it appeared to have been okay. We got snow the other night and it went away and we got more when we woke up this morning. Ugh. Yesterday I saw a cat sneaking around in the neighbors' yard and I barked so hard Grammie could hear me on the phone. I rarely bark so you know I was mad. The cat didn't come into our yard, maybe because of our fence. You are lucky that you had playmates AND snacks AND a nap. I played with a Christmas toy Grammie and Grampie gave me. Grampie has to have a wisdom tooth pulled today (we thought he was too old for that) and I think he should put it under his pillow. That's what I did. Hope you have a good day and great weekend. Mommie's fighting a sore throat so I suspect we'll have a slow and relaxing weekend. Yay! Love to you guys from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Oh no, no bathroom. Guess you'll all have to go outside. I'm sure if you act finicky again, Daddie will pay attention. After all, affording to Mommie, pugs are finicky as Morrow the cat. I don’t know who that is but if he show up I'm gonna bark at him. I think they're making a mistake not letting you help. I was a huge help we Grampie and Mommie pruned our bushes a few weeks ago. I dragged a GIANT beach across the backyard and Grampie said wow! I woke Mommie up today and I'm going back to sleep. Mommie says thanks for the jokes. Her and Daddie have the same sense of humor. Stay warm and most importantly have FUN! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

pugsly (over 6 years ago)

Mommie and daddie have been talking today and that can't be good. Your mommie thinks we have been texting. I can't work the small buttons on the phone, can you? I think they are up to something. It got to 80 today and daddie had to go to the fix it store twice so we didn't get a walk, it was too hot so we layed around in the yard while daddie cleaned Frankies chairs and a fan. The bathroom is getting better and will be finished soon, then they can start on the other one. Can you believe we have been good today. See ya Pugsly

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I agree that Mommie and Daddie are suspicious. I can work the phone a bit but you're right--the keyboard is waaaaay to small. I guess they don’t know we communicate just by thinking! You got 80 degrees! Excellent. We're supposed to get 70 tomorrow but also rain. Grampie get his wisdom tooth pulled Fri and he's having no trouble. Mommie told him to pretend he is in pain so Grammie doesn't give him any chores or projects. It must be code to summer if Frankie's chair is coming out! We'll be able to sit on the deck on our porch swing. And NO moving this year so we can enjoy the house! Hope your weekend is going well. Talk later! Love to all of you from us!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I'm sure you are as big a help as I am when there's a big chore to do. My mommie discovered with my sister and then with me that we will try to be finicky and if we can get someone to hand feed us, we will. Mommie had to hand feed sister EVERY night. Ha ha about Spencer. I have lots of toys that used to light and are now filthy. I used to have this disgusting pink baby bear that suddenly disappeared when it got too filthy. I think she must have run away. My yellow hedgehog has brown spots where I chewed his squeaker till I popped it. I always drag it out when Grammie's around. She hates to even touch it. Grampie is doing fine, eating spaghetti and having no problems at all. Around here we can't wait for summer: no work and lots of down time! Yay! Hope you have a pug-fastic day! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Poor Daddie. Those types of projects are loaded with those kinds of frustrations. Try yo be extra good for him especially if he's tired. I'll keep my paws crossed for you. Yesterday it was in the 70s and this morning it's now snowing. Mommie said she's never seen anything like it. We're worried about our daffodils. They keep trying to bloom but then it gets cold and they don't. Tell Daddie we're thinking good thoughts that his project goes smoothly. Pug hugs to you all! Love, Maddie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Mommie just helped me write you a really long email and of course that email disappeared. I'll try to get her to let me dictate to her later. Some days you just shouldn't get out of bed and Mommie had a long and awful day. It's so bad she doesn't even want to talk about it anymore 'cause she's done that all day at work. Love to all you guys! Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Mommie's feeling better today because we stayed home and slept. She said I'm the best medicine--for any ailment. My sister Rosie used to use the steps at home but when she would go to Grammie and Grampie's to visit, she would always go to Grampie's side of the bed and he had to get out of bed and pick her up from the right side. If he did it wrong, she would't let him pick her up. The exception was this: if anyone had a sandwich or ice cream, she could make the leap herself. Mommie says she doesn't want me to be as spoiled as sister, who also had to be hand fed. On April 20, Sister will be gone 3 years but then on May 17 we have my gotcha day. Mommie will be sad but I'll make her forget. Tomorrow my Grammie and Grampie will be married for 50 years. Mommie says, how the heck did they manage to do that? After tomorrow, there are only 9 class periods to be taught and then finals week. Yay. Hope you guys are getting out and enjoying outside time. I sure am. I smell like freshly cut grass. Our grass guy came yesterday so summer is officially on its way! Love from us girls to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I know all about that Diva thing. My sister and I have both been granted that title. I think it means we're spoiled. Wherever do they get the idea that WE'RE spoiled?? Glad to hear about the bathroom. I'm sure you guys gave a close inspection. I watched our grass man cut our grass from the window and he did a great job. Now I can run around and around and then sit in the sun. We probably won't go to Grammie's and Grampie's as they insist they want NO PARTY. We sent cards and we'll make it up to them when we see them--take them someplace nice (where they can bring me high-class home!) We love you guys, too. It's the weekend so YAY! Enjoy yourselves and each other! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

The fix-it store must love your daddie! Even though it has to be a little messy for a while, think how excellent the 2nd bathroom will be. You guys can rest up and be lazy now but remember that you're quality control and have to do inspections. It rained yesterday and we stayed in but I heard my mommie on the phone say something to my grammie about a new rainy day toy that just got delivered. That MUST be for me 'cause no one else around here gets toys! Hmmmmm. What could it be? I'll keep you updated. We could have a pool party in the new bathroom! I'll bring my floatie. Mommie's thinking of a pool for me this summer! Yay! Or we could all swim in the spa tub! Ha! As for that diva question, of course you are! What pug--male or female--isn't a diva. We gotta remind everyone who's in charge! Love and hugs to you all from us girls!

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Haha! Well, maybe the fix-it store people will give him a frequent buyer discount! You guys ate so funny, all rolling around and falling out of bed. I didn't get my toy 'cause it didn't rain and I went outside. It's supposed to go to 80 today--a record. Paws crossed! Grammie and Grampie sent me an easter card with a rabbit in sunglasses! Ha ha! Love from us girls to you boys! Maddie

Yesterday it made it to 80 degrees or close to it. I kept going outside--every five minutes. Jake was at my fence crying for me. I hadn't seen him all winter so we got caught up through the fence. He can be so silly. Yeah, I don't like the sound of the Easter Puggy. I only have tolerance for so many of these silly ideas, although bribing me with food helps me participate. Chasing each other sounds like great fun. My card is funny but I like to chew cards up after I smell them. I'm a little bit bad in that regard. Ha ha! Mommie's off to work today so I'm in charge. Talk to you later! Love to you all! Maddie

Let's make a pact. If either my mommie or your daddie find any silly costumes or bunny ears, we either destroy them or hide them. Paws up on that one. Today it rained and was awful and I'm very clingy tonight. We need to do laundry, too but I don’t see that happening any time soon. Mommie has more papers to grade: resumes this time. Yikes so that will keep her busy. We don’t get any time off for easter so we may stay home. We put a bunch of tree trimming and leaves for the garbage guys to take--we just hope they take them. Gotta go. I'm getting sleepy so it's time to get under my moon and stars blanket. Sleep well! Love from us to you! Mwah!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Oh no. Poor Daddie. Tell him he needs to ventilate well and to be sure not to spend too much time in those areas. The garbage guys took everything but the one giant stick I was dragging around when Grampie was here. I secretly left them a note and told them to leave it for me! Mommie's department meeting was canceled so she can stay with me today. Yay! I love my moon and stars blankie so much I'm back on top of it. With all this wind it might blow away. Good luck on the bathroom. Be sure to help Daddie and make sure he takes plenty of breaks! Love to you guys from us girls. Only 8 days plus finals (mommie sitting in her office, chatting with colleagues and students!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Mommie left the stick in the front yard--she's hoping our grass man will take it. She doesn't know I'm gonna leave him a note, too, so that he leaves it here for me. We had plenty of sticks and twigs and we needed to have the garbage guys take them for us. I'm not surprised Frankie jumped into the shower with your daddie. He wanted to try it out! I always stand outside of the shower and wait but I haven't jumped in--yet. Glad the computer's working and hope you got your lazy day. Mommie's finally home and she's getting really fed up with mean students. She had another one curse her out in class and she threw him out. You wouldn't think that would have to happen in college but it does. I never worry cause she can take care of herself. Besides, she has lots of students who take several classes with her and they get very protective of her. Plus, this boy realized what a stupid thing he did--got kicked out and will fail the class. He went to my mommie's office to try to apologize but she wasn't having any of it. I'm just glad she's home with me and gets to stay with me tomorrow. Hope you guys are having a super day! Love from us to you! Maddie and her mommie.

I'm gonna work hard to keep that stick. It's actually a giant branch and looks like a small tree. The bathroom sounds exciting and we want to see pics. I wouldn't be excited about that bath either. I've been getting called stinky girl so I know a bath is coming. I understand that people don’t realize the value of our help. Usually I'm the supervisor (someone has to do it). Sorry you got denoted. Mommie's student won't be thrown out of school and wants HER to sign a form so he doesn't fail the course. Not gonna happen. Today we're home and only tomorrow until we get our weekend! Yay! Have a great and stick to being supervisor. You can do that job from the couch! Ha ha. Love from us girls to you guys. Maddie.

It's tough being a pug I guess, all that napping and being charming! Yuck to both rain and snow. Yesterday was good 'cause Mommie worked at home and I went outside since it was sunny. I saw Maxie and Trixie, who is finally out of the hospital due to her being diabetic. Their mommie Sherri fell and hurt her knee so she's been stuck in all winter. I can understand Princess wanting to hang out by that bar-b-que! That's where I'd be! Wow, you had lots of visitors. I love visitors cause I get to play and play. Bad news. Kurt the lawn guy removed my giant stick when he came to mow yesterday. Guess my note blew away! Mommie is happy, something about it being an eyesore (whatever that means). I'll keep my paws crossed for the bathroom for today. Can't wait to see it! Love from Maddie and her mommie. P.S. Since I got my flea treatment this morning I'm safe for a bath for a couple of days! All that AND the weekend! Yay!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Oh, no, not a murphy's law day. Sorry to hear there were problems (my mommie says it's always something) but so glad it worked out. Can't wait to see the finished product. We slept in today and hope today is nice. Mommie has lots of work to do and she likes to let me outside. I saw Jake yesterday and also Maxie. I even got to see the puppies (what I call the 4 chiuauas (sp?)) Here's hoping we all get lots of work done so we can have lots of fun later! Hugs and kisses to all of you from both of us! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Finally, we get a break. Mommie just spend ALL day working on this dumb program and it's finally finished. We're gonna play now. It's raining and cold so we'll play indoor games, then Mommie has to grade papers. I might even get a new rainy day toy. Maybe we'll watch a movie together later. That sounds like a good idea. My mommie used to take my "cousin" to see the Harry Potter films a long time ago. I think a nap is a good idea for me but maybe not for Mommie. Have a super terrific day and can't wait to see the pics! Maddie the Baddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

A stroller!! That sounds excellent. I wish I could get someone to push me in a stroller. Do you have a seatbelt? Glad to hear that the bathroom remodel is going to be done soon. We had a work day yesterday and it was cold and rainy. I miss our nice weather already. Hope you have a good day. Frankie, enjoy that stroller! Love from us to you!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I think the stroller sounds like a great idea, but maybe something Frankie will need to get used to. I have a car seat and I LOVE it cause I can see all the other people in other cars and they wave and beep to me. I can also nap in it. Good thing the bathroom is so nice--you won't have to get a bath for a while. Mommie is afraid to put me in the big tub 'cause she thinks I might scratch it up or something. I hope your were good for Grammie and that you got lots of extra treats. Grammies are good about those things. Even though it got colder, I was able to go outside a few times yesterday. Be good but most importantly have FUN! Love from Maddie and her mommie

Daddie stopped at Petco yesterday for dog food and looked at a car seat cover and something call a hammock for the back seat. Sounds neat to keep pug hair off the seats but he said they were real expensive (I guess that's lots of pug money). So he will just use the vacuum more often. Daddie wrote to mommie but I don't know what he said must be some kind of secret. He wanted me to tell you to be extra nice to mommie this week and give lots of hugs and kisses OK. Better go my paws are tired and it's almost supper time. Cuddles and hugs and a big MAWH.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Ha ha. My mommie makes that mistake all the time. The hammock sounds neat, kinda like camping. Everything is so expensive these days. Mommie filled the car with gas (it wasn't even near empty) and it cost over 50.00 dollars. I think I know why I'm supposed to be and it makes me sad. I had a sister and didn't.get to meet her. But she whispers to me from heaven, so when I tilt my head, that's what’s happening. I promise to be good and cuddly. Mommie and I send you guys are live. Mwah back!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Poor Frankie. Did he stay in the cabinet quietly? Mommie said she once closed sister in a walk in closet. Sister just sat there quietly waiting to be discovered. Too bad you didn't get any of the dinner. Mommie had to do academic excellence day and when it ended they had TONS of food. She brought home caesar chicken wraps. Yummy. I kept smelling her purse all night. I was especially good. When we sat down for t.v. time, I climbed right up on Mommie's lap and cuddled. Well, hoping it doesn't rain so I can go outside. Good luck with the kitchen! Love and kisses from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

We had another accidental nap today. That means Mommie was supposed to be working but we somehow curled up on the couch and fell asleep. Now she has to stay up working and I can go to bed. Ha ha. Daddie deserves to take a day off, especially since he's been working so hard on remodeling and finding lost pugs! I got to go outside several times today (after we woke up) and I chased a squirrel, too. I even saw the puppies, who were out in their yard. When we're both out, we all run to the corners of our respective fences and they bark and I just look at them. They seem to have lots to say and I'm pretty quiet--except when I cry to go outside! Hope you have a good night and a great day tomorrow. Mommie doesn't get any time off for Easter so we're gonna stay home and celebrate! Love and hugs from us girls to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Oh, no. I hope you didn't get hurt. You sound like my grammie and mommie, falling all over the place. Please be careful. We don’t want any of you to get hurt. It's raining AGAIN today just like yesterday. The next few days are supposed to be rainy too. Ick. We're gonna be staying home for the weekend. Only three more days of classes. Can't wait for summer! Love and hugs from us to you!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Happy Easter! I hope nothing's wrong. You sounded a little down in your posting. I got lucky yesterday cause the rain held off and I played in the backyard a couple different times. Today will be quiet. Mommie keeps feeling sick and sleeping. Good thing I like to nap. Hope you have a good day. We love you and send you all pug hugs and kisses from both of us to all of you! Love, Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Ha ha! That is so funny! Frankie found an egg. What a smart boy! We had rain all day yesterday so we played indoor games. I got a platypus for Easter. Her name is Patty the Platy and she has squeaky eggs hidden inside of her. There are three eggs and two spares. Good thing 'cause I already killed one of the squeakers. If there's a squeaker in any toy, I make it my mission to be sure and bite it until it pops. So now I have two loud eggs and one quiet one (plus the two extras). Other than that, the Easter bunny didn't bring too much stuff. Grammie and Grampie sent Mommie some chocolate but I can't have that. Grammie tried to buy me a toy but said she couldn't find a good one. I'm happy with Patty. Her eggs are soft and fly and bounce around. They're great fun to chase so being indoors was okay. Hope guys are all doing well. Mommie's feeling better today but who knows how she'll feel later. Pug hugs and kisses from us girls to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

We're hoping today is a quiet day. It was 80 yesterday and maybe will be again today. Mommie got a sore throat again--or still--we're not sure. Grammie says she's run down. Me, I'm feelin' fine! Must be all that sleep I get. Maybe my mommie will go to the store or do laundry. Maybe she'll just rest. Perhaps an accidental nap is in order! Love to you all and have FUN! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

The sore throat keeps coming and going. I think she just needs to get some rest and I'm not helping. Last night I got up at midnight and decided I wanted to run and jump and play. I did for a while then when I refused to settle down, Mommie put me in the pen for the night. I guess I deserved that one. I was a little bit wild. The dog park sounds excellent. I wish we had one of those, although that's kinda what we use my backyard for: open the door and run loose; sometimes other dogs come to visit and sometimes not. Rain is threatening again but that's been happening all week. As long as I get to go outside, things are good (except me at midnight!) Hope you guys are having fun and enjoying each other! Love and hugs from us to all of you! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hey guys! Thanks for the good advice. I managed to stay out of the pen last night. Maybe I was tired from running around. We had a big storm and bad wind. I nearly blew away so I ran to Mommie, who was outside with me, talking on the phone. I snuggled next to her. Our porch swing cover blew away and we had to chace it. You guys are very good at bedtime. I usually grab a toy and fall asleep or I get behind Mommie's knees and prop my head up. I'm gonna be good today. Mommie has one day then finals. Yay. Love and hugs from us girls to you guys. Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

I love to find toys that have been lost. I have lots of toys throughout the house and in my toyboxes so when I find them it's like getting something new. We are very lucky has pugs to be able to do what we want. I played outside yesterday and we had another accidental nap. Mommie can't stop sleeping and is worried that her sickness is getting worse. Since Monday is reading day, she doesn't have to go to work so we really get a three-day weekend coming up. Yay! Glad you're all doing well! Love from both of us to all of you! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

See what I mean about finding old toys? It's like unexpectedly running into an old friend. Sorry to hear about the bath. I was thisclose to getting one Thursday but Mommie was not feeling well. Maybe this weekend. I get mommie until tuesday since monday is reading day. Yay! After next week and after she gets final grades in, she'll be done FOR THE SUMMER! Hooray. Can't wait. Hope you guys have a terrific day. Love and hugs from us girls to our favorite guys! Maddie (the stinkie! )

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

It's been the perfect weather but I think the rain is here now. You're lucky that you can walk to the park. We can walk in our neighborhood but i've been playing in the yard. Sorry the kitchen is such a mess but when it's done you all will be so happy. You must have either been hungry or mischievous. Which was it? Glad the hegdehog is on the mend. Hope you guys have a fun day! Love from us girls to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Glad the hedgehogs are well but sorry that Daddie isn't feeling well. Be sure to be extra good and cuddle him. My mommie slept a lot this weekend. No work today but she has to be at her office on Tuesday, Thursday, and friday. After she gets grades in, then she's done. I hope Daddie feels better. Take good care of him. Love and bugs from us girls to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

You "bugged" Daddie, huh? Ha ha. Didn't mean to send you bugs. I made the same mistake when my mommie's boss's dog Buster sent me an email to tell me he got me a present. I told him I'm like my mommie in that I don't believe in getting serious with one dog but prefer to play the field. They requested that I hold the bugs. Even though it was cloudy and close to rain all day yesterday I still managed to get outside. I got really bad at bedtime and Mommie couldn't even catch me to put me in the pen 'cause that's where she was gonna put me. After I tazzed around the room, I got tired and fell asleep and Mommie was mad that she was up late because of me. She did NOT want to get up this morning and kept resetting her alarm clock. I meant to be helpful but I forgot. Today Mommie has work (she has to at least be in her office during finals time) and then she has Thursday and Friday. After she gets grades in, she will be done for the summer (mostly). Yay! Hope you guys are having a good day. Stay away from the bugs--and those damn smart phones! Love from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

You guys are gonna end up in the pen. No more bed hogging. I was good last night but I have a new trick when I eat. Mommie has to take a little bit of food out of my bowl and put it in the Grammie (a little plastic bowl Grammie gave me to play with.) Then I flip the little bowl til food flies everywhere and I eat the food off of the floor. I guess I just got bored! Try to be good for Daddie today and take quiet naps. Pug hugs and kisses! Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Happy, happy birthday to Daddie! Make sure you do something special for him today cause he's a very good daddie to all of you. Why did Frankie growl at Daddie's pant leg? Was he hungry? Playful? Our weather may be okay today but it keeps changing. We had to turn our heat back on (yuck) but at least I was good yesterday. Mommie has only today and tomorrow and then she has to get grades in THEN she's done (unless she goes to the luncheon tomorrow and a retreat Tuesday--yuck). My grammie thinks my trick is funny but she says I'm a little spoiled. I wonder if she realizes she made me that way?! Ha ha! Love from us girls to you guys and Happy Birthday, Daddie! Madison Rose

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

So glad to hear that you had a good birthday day with Daddie. Mmmmmmm. Hot dogs. That sounds like an excellent lunch. I'm glad you were good. That's funny about Frankie and the pantleg. When I scratch my bowl that means I want food and Mommie calls it me "asking" for food. Maybe that's how Frankie "asks" to play! We're pretty smart dogs. Last night I had to have my food taken from the big bowl to the Grammie bowl then I smacked the bowl till all the food flew. Then I chased it around and ate it. My mommie thinks I'm crazy but I think it's funny. One more work day for Mommie then she has to get grades submitted. We wanna go see Grammie and Grampie for Mother's Day since we missed Easter but her work has to be done before we can leave. Thank goodness for her being able to send stuff via the computer. Have a super day and have fun! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie <3

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Sounds like we all have our food rituals. Mommie was hoping mine was a phase but I wanna do it all day everyday. We had another accidental nap today. Mommie spoke to Grammie yesterday about visiting them. Grammie said earlier in the week would be better. Then she called this morning to ask if we were coming today. Mommie is thinking Grammie's getting cunfused as she gets older. Don't tell HER that. Mommie's gonna try to get grades in today but we'll see. Love too you guys from us girls! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

The nap was first but the grades finally got in!!! Yay! Now summer can start for us. We will probably go see Grammie and Grampie tomorrow and maybe stay a couple of days. I got a bath yesterday and I smell gooooooood! You are lucky that it was 80 yesterday. I only got outside once due to rain. Thanks for the Mother's day wishes. I'm sending some for your Grammie too! Have a fun day! Love from us girls to you guys! <3 Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Outback! Hooray! You must have had some real goodies. We're supposed to go to Grammie and Grampie's today so I'll get all kinds of goodie-oodies! It's only an hour and a half to their but to pack up my stuff takes forever. I take more than Mommie. We're hoping for good weather 'cause grammie knows of a pug AND a puggle who want play dates with me. She met them in her neighborhood. Hope your weather is nice but not too hot! Love to our favorite guys! Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Oh, no! Computer problems? That stinks. Mommie forgot all of the pieces to charge the phone and we didn't bring the computer either. Mommie will either have to go to Verizon or go with charging the phone in the car. We'll have to see. We are CAMPING right now! We thought we were gonna stay at the house but we got a good surprise! We rode the golfcart and earlier today I met grammie and Grampie's neighbor, a pug named Kelly! She only one and is roly poly! The puggle wasn't home. We also met a black pug at Petsmart named tootsie roll! She was two but tiny and she was timid. We'll try to keep in touch. Good luck with the computer. Love and hugs from maddie, mommie, grammie, and Grampie!

Happy, happy gotcha day, Robbie! We are so exited for you and hope your day is PERFECT! Wish we could be there to help you celebrate! We are camping and having fun. Grammie made me my own fruit plate and we had hamburgers and hot dogs yesterday. Grammie and Grampie send their love and say happy gotcha day, Robbie! Love from us girls to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Hooray! So glad your second gotcha day went so well! Cupcakes sound amazing. Grammie is feeding me everything! Last night was ghettis and meatballs. Grampie has to work cause one of his coworkers had a heart attack. We came back to town to pick up Grammie's prescriptions. Mommie is doing that plus she's now out in the hot sun waiting to buy some kind of sausage sandwich that Mommie won't even eat and I won't be allowed to eat. Sorry to hear you had rain but be glad you have each other. After I met kelly I want a sister more than ever. I met a bulldog at camp named Rosie! We loved each other. Hope you're having good weather and that you have leftover cupcakes! Love from us girls to our favorite guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

We are having fun camping but the rain is getting everything all muddie. We're gonna stay at Grammie and Grampie's tonight then go home tomorrow. We kinda miss our house plus mommie has chores to do. Poor Grampie took time off to see Mommie and me but even had to work today. I happen to LOVE the golf cart this year so I keep jumping on it. Hope you guys are having fun with each other. Love to you all from us girls to you guys. Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

We just got home and we're glad to be back. We missed out house. I was VERY bad last night at Grammie's and Grampie's house. I ran around last night and would only sleep when Mommie took me to the rec room and Grammie played a Christmas music box, which was the ONLY way I would sleep. Mommie is exhausted so we're gonna nap. Have a good day! Love MADDIE THE BADDIE!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

You're right about being home. I am sorry I was bad--i think I was just overtures. Yesterday we slept all day. I hope you make it to the dog park. We all need to get out and run. I went out a couple of times yesterday but mostly slept. Guess we'll try to get some errands done today. Hope you have a great day! Hugs and kisses from both of us to all of you! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

A walk!! Hooray. The boxer puppy sounds cute. I bet you all become friends. My friend at the campground, Rosie, is a boxer and sooooo cute. We just got a surprise call that Grammie and Grampie are ON THEIR WAY! Mommie is trying to pull the house together. Yesterday, Mommie found a dead squirrel in our yard but I DIDN'T do it. I didn't even see him. I ran right past. Mommie had to be on squirrel patrol/cleanup and she was unhappy. She didn't even eat dinner! Guess I better go get ready. Have a great day and enjoy each other! Love and hugs from both of us to all of you. Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Grammie and Grampie only came for part of the day. They brought us a chair for our porch and then Mommie and Grampie bought bags and bags of dirt for our flowers. They got caught in the rain but kept working. Then Grammie and Grampie left to go to the casino down the road. Me and Mommie tried to get warm. Mommie also has a guy bothering her (she already told him she was done with him) but he started up with her again. Her students are giving her all sorts or ideas about how to get him to leave her alone. He's on facebook and gets mad if Mommie talks about other guys. We'll see how this one plays out but my money is on mommie. It's still wet outside but our grass guys are here to mow and trim. That means a nice yard if I go outside later. Hope you guys get lots and lots of bellyrubs and pughugs today. Love from both of us to all of you! Maddie. P.s. I woke Mommie and raced upstairs this morning to check if Grammie and Grampie were here again!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 6 years ago)

Are you as tired of the rain as I am? I'm getting bored about being stuck inside. When I get bored I get into mischief and that's never good for me. I wanna lay in the sun but there is none. Don't worry about Mommie and that guy. She took a poll among her friends to see the best way to deal with him and she has a huge list to work from. Hope you guys get lots of sun and belly rubs and even a trip to the dogpark. Hugs and kisses from both of us to all of you! Maddie the Baddie <3

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Hi three bored pugs! It rained again yesterday but even though it was wet outside, Mommie let me go in the yard cause I was so angst in the house. If the sun doesn't come out soon, I may go crazy. At least you guys have each other to play with. Now, if I had that sister......(I'm trying to build a case!) Hope you guys get out today and have some FUN. Lone from one bored pug. Mwah!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

A new window sounds excellent and I'm sure you guys were excellent helpers. Even better is you got pizza! We had good weather so I went outside a bunch of times. I did something dumb, though, and ate a stinkbug. Yuck. I was unhappy afterward and tried to drink water but I had an unhappy face (more than usual) after that. Hope you get leftover pizza today and that you get outside! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie (and her mommie)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Yes, I tried to eat another stinkbug but Mommie caught me. I think I have memory problems--or else I keep hoping the stinkbugs will taste better. I saw an ant on Mommie's leg yesterday and I got really upset. I was trying to protect her. Glad you got pizza for breakfast! Mmmmmm. I hope it doesn't rain cause yesterday was soooo nice. Have a fun day and enjoy playing with each other! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie the stinkbug.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Uh-oh. What did Daddie do to his back? I hope he's okay. Be sure to be especially good for him. Yesterday was excellent weather and I kept running in and out of the house. Mommie says okay, if it makes me happy. We're thinking about going away for the upcoming holiday weekend but it's supposed to rain the whole time. Yuck. We'll see. Have a good day and give Daddie extra cuddles! Love and hugs from us girls to you guys. Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Glad to hear Daddie is feeling better. I hope you all were good for him. Mommie has to go to the doctor tomorrow. I hope she gets some new meds to make her feel better. Sounds like everyone got storms but us. Grammie and Grampie almost had a tornado. I sleep through everything but Mommie heard some wind but that's about it. I think you guys are much better watchdogs than I am. I would invite a robber in and let him take everything--as long as he split a sandwich with me. Looks kinda icky outside so it may be an indoor day. Hope you guys have a good day! Love and hugs from us girls to you guys! Maddie

Yay--you finally got good weather. We are supposed to go to Grammie's and Grampie's but Mommie has to get her meds today and we have to see how the weather will be to determine when we leave. I got out a lot yesterday and we have lots of new flowers. Someone was cooking on the grill last night and I sat by the window smelling it. I gotta get to Grammie's cause she feeds me--and I mean REAL food. Hope you guys have a good day. Have fun! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie

Hooray for today! We got good news. Mommie got an email that she got TENURED so she is permanently hired at Cal. We are all very excited and Mommie is screaming in the camper and I keep jumping up. We're gonna celebrate today. Glad to hear you guys are getting a BBQ. Tell Frankie that a sad face works well for stealing. Last night I got up to the table and ate strawberry cake. Yum. This morning I got bacon and eggs that Grampie cooked on the grill. Hope you guys have a great day and get lots and lots of treats! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie (and Mommie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

How was the bbq? Did you score any goodies? It was 92 degrees yesterday so Grampie was my sitter while Grammie ran errands. Mommie hung out by the pool. It will be 94 today. Thank goodness for sunscreen. Hope you guys have a good day! Stay cool! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie

Oh-oh. Mommie accidentally posted on our page instead of yours and doesn't know how to fix it with her phone. Sorry....

Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Hey guys! We had a fun week camping but we came home this afternoon. I got to walk every morning with my grammie and ride on the golf cart. I even saw two chipmunks. When she was cutting the lawn, she saw a toad next to the camper. She swears that isn't the reason we left but I don't know. Hope you guys are having fun. I gotta nap and my mommie had to clean and unpack. Talk to you later! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Awwww. Poor Robbie! I hope he's okay. Give him extra love and special treats for his trauma. Did Daddie and Grammie bring you any of their dinner? It was cool yesterday so I went outside after my nap. I fell asleep on the couch upstairs and Mommie had to wake me up. I was too tired from vacation. Hope you guys have a good day with lots of fun. Keep an eye on everyone so no one gets lost! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Glad there we no more lost pugs. Glad you could go outside. I bet you were a big help: 3 pug bosses! My mommie calls me Boss sometimes but now Grampie is calling me Shorty--ha ha. I think it's gonna be hot today. Tell Daddie to have fun at his banquet! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

You're daddie is right that you guys come first. People make fun of Mommie and how she takes care of me really well (they call it spoiling) but I call it love. Daddie has his priorities in the right place. Did you know some dogs live OUTSIDE?! We know that will never happen to us 'cause we're loved. Snuggling was fun, I bet. Hope you guys have an excellent day! Love from us girls to our favorite guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Sounds like you guys had a good day. I napped and played outside yesterday a few times while Mommie did laundry ALL day. Yuck. Today should be nice so I'll try to play outside. Nice to know we're all loved, isn't it? Love from Maddie (and her mommie)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

I think nicknames are a sign of love. Mommie calls me so many names that Grammie says she wonders how I know WHAT my name is. Mommie also calls me Little and Chumley. Sorry to hear about the fires and Daddie not feeling well. It's gonna rain today so I'll have to play indoor games. Maybe I'll even get a rainy day toy. Hope you guys have a fun day! Love from us to you! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

It's gonna be a hot one today, maybe 95. Not good pug weather at all. Not even good mommie weather. I didn't get a new toy but I did play inside. We had such.bad winds that our hose reel and chair blew off our patio and luckily got stopped by the fence. My pinwheel spun so hard I thought it was gonna take off. I hope our plants will survive. The 4 o'clocks all got knocked down. At least they're hardy. Time to turn the air on. Our poor grass guys are roasting. Hope you guys have a good day! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Thank goodness for rawhide chewies. I think that even though pugs aren't very active, our minds are and that's what gets us in trouble. It is hot, hot, hot again. I just came back in. I think I'll hand on the couch. Mommie is thinking of getting me a poolie and if I don’t use it then she will. Jake's mommie makes fun of the 4 puppies' mommie for doing that but my mommie doesn't care what people think. I'll keep you posted. Stay cool and TRY to be good. Ha! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

We need to stock up on more cheeked. Mommie was checking our inventory and we need more variety. I'm a tiny bit spoiled. Sometimes I just lick the flavor off and Grampie laughs at me. We were supposed to get a big storm yesterday but it never happened. It was too hot, though, to play much outside. Maybe today will be better. Grampie has a birthday on Sunday and then there's Father's day. What will you get Daddie? We are waiting for Grampie's gifts to come in the mail. One did: a golf cart cover for MY golfcart. We also got him a CSI cap, personalized travel mug, and a CSI shirt. He LOVES that show so I guess he's having a theme party. Hope you have even more fun today! Love from your favorite girls to our favorite guys! Licks and wags from Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Oh, no. What happened??? How did Robbie hurt his back? Did he fall? I'm sure Dr. Dave will help him. Be good for Daddie and understand if Robbie needs extra attention. Please let us know what's happening. Love and hugs from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

We are all so relieved to hear that Robbie is feeling better. We were so worried about him. Just keep an eye on him. We made a quick trip to Grammie's and Grampie's today. They bought some outdoor chairs my mommie really wanted but couldn't find here in Washington. They needed our car to carry them. We're home now and very excited. Grammie and Grampie are coming again on Tuesday! I sang happy birthday to Grampie and Grammie immediately took me into the kitchen to make me toast with peanut butter and jelly! Yay for Grammie. You guys take care of each other. We're sending you lots of hugs and kisses for everyone! Love from Maddie (and her mommie).

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Hooray for Robbie! Hooray for peanut butter! Hooray for bacon and eggs. We are all such lucky pugs to be so loved (I mean spoiled!) It is supposed to be cooler this week so I'll be able to go outside a lot. Mommie thinks I have allergies 'cause when I spend a lot of time outside playing I sometimes cough and I coughed all night long. Hope you guys have a super day filled with fun! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

I'm sitting in the doorway because I know something is up. I think MAYBE. Grammie and Grampie are in their way but I haven't heard it officially. We got our new chairs on the deck and on the patio. Once the work is done, we may sit out there. It is supposed to only go to 70 today--perfect pug weather! Hope you guys have a good day and stay away from those clean windows! Lo e from us girls to you guys! Maddie (p.s. I'll let you know what the surprise is!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Grammie and Grampie are here and I get to go outside a lot. I had steak last night and will get chicky licky tonight. I played with Jake a bunch of times. I'm gonna go help Grampie. Hope you guys are having fun. Love from us girls to you guys. Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Haven't heard from you and we're getting worried about you. Hope you all are okay. Love from us girls to you guys.

Happy Father's day to Daddie! Remember that today is his special day so be extra extra cute and good today. I bet he will LOVE his new toy. Glad to hear everything is okay but sad to hear about computer problems. Glad it got fixed. Have an excellent day ! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Wow! You guys had an excellent day. We spoke to Grampie and he was going to a car show. He has to work today so we'll phone him later or maybe at lunch. The puppies are out and are barking but I don't wanna go out 'cause it's too wet. Mommie dropped her coffee pot (at least it was empty) and glass broke all over our laundry. She can't find the new coffee pot from x-mas so she is drinking coke 'cause she doesn't want to run to starbucks. Sounds to me like she's spoiled. It may rain today but they keep saying that and it doesn't happen. Glad you guys had a great father's day! Love from us girls to you guys! Love, Maddie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Hooray. Mommie finally got her coffee this morning. She never got it yesterday and that's not good. She wasn't cranky so much as she was sleepy. I slept most of yesterday and got outside a few times. Who knows what will happen today? I am learning how to get in and out of the big bed on my own. Mommie put the bench seat next to the bed and I'm doing pretty well. Hope you guys have a nice day. Have lots of fun. Love and hugs from us girls to you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Sometimes I still need a cheerio to get me on the bed. If I stop and think about it, I won't go up but if I forget to be scared I don’t think about it and I just get up there. Who are Dewey and Travis? I hope their mommie is okay if she's a friend of yours. I'm with you--i don't understand the fuss about coffee. Last night my mommie had to go out in the rain because our porch swing cover wasn't staying put. In the process she got soaked and stubbed her toe. Today it's purple (the toe, not the swing). It's always something. Hope you guys have a good day. Sneak some coffee and tell me what the fuss is! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Yay! Glad you had a good day outside. I was very bad yesterday. Nothing specific but I kept getting into mischief: chewing rugs, scratching and digging , etc. Mommie was not happy. She wanted to sell me!!! I'll try to be better today but maybe not. Her toe is still purple and sore. Grampie told her they can't do much with a broken toe but tape it to the others. We're gonna let that toe go solo for a while and see how it goes. Hope you guys have a good day filled with loads of fun! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie the Baddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

I was much better yesterday. No point in getting into SERIOUS trouble. Freezies sound good. We had popsicles the other day. It was red, white, and blue and I spilled the last part on Mommie but she didn't care. It's very dark today and I'm still in bed. Good place to be, I think. Still working on that poolie. Hope you guys have a fun day. Stay cool and eat lots of freezies. Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie the not so baddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Strawberry = yum! It rained yesterday on and off so I only went out a few times. Sometimes I go out the front door and try to get back in through the back door. Then I have to remember to run to the front door. Sometimes I'll just sit at a door and wait and wait and not even scratch. Mommie's toe seems to be okay and only hurts sometimes. Looks cloudy again today but at least it will be cool. Have a fun day! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Yup, I weigh 25.8 but the nurse said she'd write 25 on my chart. She said she's NEVER seen a pug who wasn't a littleheavy. I think I'm just very long. I met a pug at Petsmart and she was called Daisy. I have to get my teeth cleaned on thursday. They need it-- plus it's part of my healthplan. They're gonna cut my nails real short then. We have to decide what we're doing for the 4th and then the following week my mommie goes on vacation and I go to Grammie and Grampie's. Guess I won't get as many treats as usual. They will take me camping 'cause Rosie the bulldog was asking about me. Hope you guys have a fun day! Love from Fat Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

It will be fun when mommie is away. Once my Grampie watched my sister and together the two if them ate a whole pie in one day! Company sounds like fun. Everyone will love you guys--you're great fun. Mommie will be going to myrtle beach for a week with some friends. She's excited! I've been a little sick after my shots saturday. I threw up yesterday morning and was good the rest of the day then I threw up again. The doctor says to bring me in if I continue. Paws crossed it's nothing serious. Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie

pugsly (about 6 years ago)

Sorry you threw up, it happens after you get some shots. Have mommie give you some yoghurt, the kind with all the good stuff in it it will help settle your tummy. We had the park all to ourselves today and wished you were with us, we all ran around and played. Mommie can freeze the yoghurt and make freezies for a cool treat, you'll love them. Peach and strawberry are my favorite. Get to feeling better love Pugsly

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

I haven't been sick today but I'm still in bed--not unusual. Mommie needs to go to the store and tomorrow Grammie and Grampie will come to help Mommie lay some stones in one part of our yard. We still haven't decided if we're staying home for the 4th and the party next door or if we're gonna go camping. I say camping! Yay! Thanks for the recipe for freezies. I've been getting green beans as part of my diet. Hooray! Hope you guys have a fun day! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

We were very busy yesterday when mt grammie and Grampie came. He and my mommie worked on a rock garden for the front of the house so she doesn't have to weed there. They wanted different stones but lowe's and home depot didn't have any more. Grammie and Grampie left after supper. They had pizza and I had fruit and green beans. You guys are getting hot weather. Our weather has been cooler than usual, which is perfect pug weather. I have to go to the dentist so my mommie will be a nervous wreck all day until the vet calls. Keep your paws crossed. Mommie told the vet tech she already list one of her girls and can't lose another one. If it's hot again today, I recommend letting Daddie squirt you with the hose! Ha ha! I laid on a lounge chair yesterday while our grass guys mowed and my mommie and Grampie worked. Hope you guys have an excellent day! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

We're soooo sorry that Daddie was so upset. Mommie was like a crazy person picking me up yesterday but we had a mommie and me night. I was so wonky I didn't even eat. I have an ear infection so I have meds and drops. Right now I am parked on my mommie's lap. We are gonna wait another day to see if we go to visit Grammie and Grampie. Hope you guys get to go outside today. Thanks again for your crossed paws and love. Mommie was a basket case but I think she'll be okay now. Love from us girls to all you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Sorry you were worried about me. I'm doing better. Thursday was my worst day. When will your company come? Who's coming? Hope it's someone fun to play with. We drove up to the campground this morning and Grampie took me on the golf cart already--just me and him. I helped him steer. Grammie gave me a popsicle already. I think she forgot about the diet. Hope you guys have an excellent day and weekend filled with lots of fun. Grammie and Grampie say hi! Love from us girls to our favorite guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Wowie! You guys have tons of company! I'm not surprise d to hear that everyone made a fuss over you. That's what pugs are for: to be fussed over. It's especially fun when guests stay overnight. We had two different sets of company so far plus I met tons of new dog friends. It's been very hot and i'll still taking medis so I'm a bit sleepy! Hope your holiday stays as fun as it's been! Gonna go swimming so I'll talk to you later.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Ha ha! I didn't go swimming but my mommie did. I stayed at the camper with Grampie and his friend, and they took me on the golf cart. Now Bob wants to take me home. He left Bucky at home since he's a little bit bad. It's gonna be hot today so we hope you have a happy 4th of July! Stay cool and ask Daddie for freezues! Love to you all! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Yay! We drove home this morning. She will be going on vacation either Friday or Saturday. Mommie's gonna drive me to Grammie and Grampie's house probably Thursday or Friday. I can't wait. Grammie's not very strict with my diet. Mommie will miss me more than I'll miss her. Ha ha. It's hot so we're inside. Stay cool and get freezies! Love from Maddie and her mommie. <3

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Oh Pugsly, you character you! Boogie is an excellent name. Be sure to get a picture with Hootie. Did Robbie and Frankie get toys, too? I'll be spoiled when I go to Camp Grammie/Grammie. Grammie will try to feed the birds but I'll eat the bread! Sometimes ducks fly into their backyard. Grampie will be calling me Shorty the whole time, except when I'm helping him. Then he calls me Boss! It's gonna be hot and we have lots to do. Stay cool and have fun with Hootie! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Uh-oh. Our air conditioner isn't working right and I have to go to the vet (ear check up) and the workers are coming. Grampie wants to be here when the workers are here. The good news for me (but bad for my mommie) is that Grammie and Grampieare gonna take me home with them. Mommie was gonna drive me up there tomorrow but now she won't have to. She will have a hard time without me but I'll be fine. She left me once before and when she came to get me I turned away from her and went to my grammie. Ouch. Mommie will probably be on facebook but I won't be since Grammie and Grampie don't have a computer. You guys have fun and share Hootie! Love and hugs from your favorite girls to our favorite guys! Maddie

Hi mommie, We know you will be lonely with Maddie gone so we all send BIG hugs and kisses to you. Have a good vacation and lots of fun and if you need anything get a hold of daddie on FB. Maddie will have lots of fun with grammie and grampie and she will miss you. Licks and wags, Pugsly,Frankie and Robbie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Dear boys, thank you for sending me so much love. Having Maddie gone is difficult but I get frequent reports on Maddie. Last night Grammie tried to put her in the pen for bedtime and Maddie stood up and gave her the sad look so Maddie ended up in bed with her grammie and Grampie. Grammie reported that every time she moved, Maddie moved. She probably thought she was getting a snack. She spent most of yesterday in the yard, chasing poor Buck, who, even though he is 110lbs. is afraid of Maddie and runs away. Poor Buck. Anyway, if you want, I can let you know what Maddie's up to. I think she needs a puppy cam on a helmet so I can see her adventures! Loves of love and hugs to you 3 special boys and of course Daddie. Love from Maddie's mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Uh oh. Sorry to hear about your basement but so glad you got extra time in the park. It will help you sleep well at night (and through the day!) Maddie is having a grand time though they didn't go camping yet. She keeps trying to find buck, the neighbor's dog. Poor guy just keeps running from her! Glad to hear you are all well. Big hugs and kisses from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Uh oh. Sorry to hear about Daddie's back. Be especially good and don’t make him lift you. French toast then scrambly eggs both sound excellent. Maddie was camping yesterday and they had people over for Grammie's birthday. Grammie said she was being excellent and LOVED everyone. No surprise there! I made it to the beach yesterday so the fun will start today! Be good and have fun. Hugs and kisses from Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Another day in pugville sounds marvelous. Oscar the fish is NO pug substitute. Grammie says Maddie is being good but yesterday when we are on the phone, she ate a recipe. Not the food but the actual recipe card! I'm on the beach now and there's a beautiful breeze. The only thing missing is a pug. Hope you guys are having fun. Hugs and kisses to you all and Daddie, of course!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Hey guys! What's up in pugville today? I'm still getting good reports about Maddie's behavior, which I don’t believe a bit. Yesterday Grampie didn't have to work and he and Maddie hung out. Tell Daddie the beach is nice: sunny but still a cool breeze. I could live here but only if I had my Maddie. Have fun with Hootie, Spencer, and each other. Love and hugs from Maddie's mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

P.S. Oscar is a silly fish I found in the beach house. He's ENORMOUS and would scare Maddie, too. I just like having him around!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Griff and Boo Boo sound like lots of fun. I miss Maddie, too. Grammie said she had chicky licky and carrots and Grampie swears she looks skinnier. We'll see. Another one of our friends is joining us today so we should have a good day. Thanks for being my adopted pugs! Love and hugs to all you boys, Daddie, and Grammie! Maddie's mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Hey guys! Sounds like you're having great fun. You're lucky to get Daddie time. I miss my Maddie terribly and may not be able to pick her up til Sunday ! Grammie just called and maddie is experiencing her first garage sale. I guess she fell asleep. Be good and have fun. I saw your marrow bones on pugbook! Hugs and kisses to you and Grammie and of course Daddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

HELLO! I'm finally back home and boy am I exhausted! I'm giving Mommie the cold shoulder. I was happy to get in the car and I slept. Mommie woke up early today to get me and now we are BOTH home in our happy house. I plan to take it easy and guilt my mommie into treats. I'm also gonna renegotiate my contract (I come from a union family) and I plan to do no chore and get no more baths! I hope you get your computer fixed. Have fun and I'm sending hugs and kisses to you all! Love and hugs from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

No electricity? No ac? Yikes. Hope that doesn't happen too often. I made my mommie feel better yesterday when I climbed into her duffel bag and fell asleep. She thinks it means I won't let her go without me. I was just sleepy! Ha ha. Hope you guys have fun and stay cool! Love and hugs from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Awww, I'm sorry to hear how frightened you were. We are lucky we have people who will comfort us when we're scared or lonely. The kitchen sounds like a terrible mess but think how pretty it will look when it's done. It has been hot, hot, hot here. I stay in the ac then go outside for a few minutes and run back in real quick. I hope your electricity stays on. If it doesn't and Daddie's not there, snuggle the three of you together. Stay cool, guys. Love from us girls.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Ha ha! You guys are so funny. I bet you guys were a mess and into everything. How nice to have new appliances! Wow! The better to prepare pug meals with. It was so hot yesterday and will be worse today. So glad the ac is working! Stay cool and keep helping with remodeling! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Maybe best that you guys stayed out of the way. We don’t want you to get hurt plus who wants ANOTHER bath. Yesterday my mommie squirted me with the hose and I got so scared I ran to the front porch and hid behind the black glider. She felt so bad I got extra green beans and extra snuggles. Guess I won't be going in the poolie--unless I have to. We're hoping the weather cools down. Tomorrow I go to the vet to recheck my ears. Paws crossed no more extra ear washings. Stay cool and keep me updated on the kitchen progress. Hugs and kisses from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Funny how you guys play with toys together. I have found that my grammie is the best at playing toys 'cause she knows how to pull and tug them. Grampie is best at nap and backrub time. Mommie -- not sure what she's good at. Gotta get ready to go to the vet. Have a good day and stay cooooooool!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

I did good at the vet. My ears are perfect and all the girls there love me. One had to show her friend how I turn my head when someone says "green beans." We also got some chewies. The only bad thing was I haven't lost anymore weight. I even look skinnier. Oh well. Maybe when it gets cooler I can go ouetside more. Hope you guys have a good day filled with lots of fun! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

I'm not allowed to take toys outside either. Jake has a toy squirrel that lays in his backyard. I would be afraid it smells. My mommie doesn't shake her finger but boy canshe yell! Good luck with the kitchen. I saw pics and it looks great. We pugs know how important a kitchen is! Love and hugs from us girls to you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Film would be hilarious. I can imagine you stealing cheese and the toys hiding. Too bad you couldn't blame the cheese on the toys. Frankie is very adventurous, isn't he? It will be amazing when the kitchen is finished. Try not to help too mug, okay?! Ha ha! Hope you have a fun day. Love and hugs! Maddie and her mommie.

Believe it or not, sometimes we pugs are bad (though I prefer the word mischievous!) Water and ice from the fridge is excellent. I chased an ice cube around the kitchen yesterday. I got confused yesterday. I went out the front door and waited to get let in the back door. Mommie went on the deck and called me to go to the front. If she runs downstairs to let me in, I have usually headed to the front. It's quite a dance but we always meet up! Can't wait to see your kitchen. Bet home depot loves your daddie the way Wal Mart loves my mommie! Have a good day! Love and hugs from Maddie and her mommie.

Have Baer do a friend request on fb. He'll make tons of friends. That video was waaaay funny. That dog wanted that pool in the house. I wonder why? Sometimes we dogs get the funniest ideas. Hope you get lots done in the kitchen. Love and hugs from us girls to you guys! Maddie

I don’t know what that word means but I hear it from my mommie. It can't be good. I like the line about t.he fun bucket! That stinks about the microwave. My grampie always asks my mommie if something is plugged in. He works maintenance in a nursing home and that's very often the problem. Mommie always laughs and checks the cord. I hope the problem gets fixed. Be good so Daddie's fun bucket doesn't overflow. Extra love and hugs from us girls to our favorite guys! Maddie

Hooray for the new microwave! Now you can have snacks FAST! Sounds like you're getting plenty of rest. We have been sleeping badly lately then napping. Today my mommie woke with a headache so I'm gonna work hard on being good. We'll see how THAT goes...... love and hugs from us girls to you guys! Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Yay! Glad the computer is fixed! Mommie needs to get our wireless router set up. I don’t know what that means but my mommie could only get it to work once and it makes her frustrated. Grammie and Grampie are camping and they saw Huey and his family. Tomorrow we get the car inspected so today we need to get some work done. Good luck with the kitchen and have a good day! Glad Daddie's fun bucket is full! Love and hugs from us girls to you guys! Maddie

I heard a rumor about ice cream but I didn't want to believe. I suspect Mommie sneaked an ice cream sandwich when I was outside yesterday! I've been getting some treats but I think they are pretend cause when I lick the spoon there doesn't seem to be anything there. On Saturday my grammie and grampie asked us why we didn't visit this weekend. Mommie said cause you didn't invite us. They are coming down this week cause my mommie's new boss is having a party for her former boss's retirement and Mommie's tenure! Yay! But I'll be stuck at home. Boo. Have a fun day and be good! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie

Ha ha! I like getting 3 brothers. Funny you call me Sis because the family STILL calls my mommie Sis and probably will forever. I had an adventure. Yesterday the boy across the street, Will, and his friend had a lemonade stand. Since we live on a dead end they set up a block away. Mommie and I walked down to get lemonade and talk to Will's mom. A lady showed up who had a pug and she was all over me. The boys were so excited I drank my own lemonade from a cup. They laughed and laughed! Will's mom even took my picture and offered Will to be a dogwalker for me. Wow! Today my mommie has a party so I'll be good at home. Tomorrow Grammie and Grampie are coming. Yay! Fun time. Have a good day, brothers! Love from your sis and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

My mommie's protective too but she likes knowing if she needed it, Will could always let me out into the fenced yard. Chicky nuggets sound delicious! I do have good news: I stayed alone yesterday out of my pen while Mommie went to her party. She was gone about 6 hours and I didn't get into any mischief! When my mommie came home, she let me out and I raced around the backyard. She even played the game where we chase each other! Then we went inside and I didn't leave her side. Grammie and Grampie will be here later so I'm gonna rest up. Hope the kitchen is making good progress! Love to my brothers from your sister! Maddie. P.S. Baer is our friend on fb now! He's so cute!

It was cool and cloudy this morning so we were ready for a walk. The only problem was I didn't want to go to the park and stopped when we headed that way. Frankie and Robbie were disappointed that we only walked around the block and daddie said I'm stubborn. Later daddie was washing dishes and stuff that hasn't been used in years and put them away. He told grammie they need to get rid of a lot of stuff. It's raining now so we won't go out. It's been a strange day. Hope yours was better. Love you Sis, your brothers.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

We had a busy day yesterday. Grammie watched me while Mommie and Grampie went to Lowes and home depot (Mommie said to tell you they did NOT get cleaned up!) Anyway, they bought a ceiling fan for the master bedroom. It's very pretty and I can't wait to lay under it. It was actually too cool to use it last night. It took Mommie and Grampie a good bit of time 'cause he wanted it perfect. I'll try to remember to send a picture. Gotta go and take a nap! Love to my brothers from your sister! Madison Rose.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Hi Boys! The new fan is excellent and keeps me cool in bed. Mommie didn't get to try it yet cause she let's Grammie and Grampie sleep there. They went shopping and left me home. Grampie says that my job is "layin' and surveyin'." Ha ha! Today is the big party and I'll be stuck home today. I hope they have fun and bring me goodies! Have a fun day! Love from Sis.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

I was soooooo good yesterday when everyone went to the party. I even got little trees (broccoli ) for breakfast. Mommie even got cards and presents. Her one friend even got her a pirate hat and a bottle of margaritas. Uh-oh! Today is raining and everyone is tired today. Maybe we'll all take a nap but I heard Grammie say outlets. Well, I can nap alone or Grampie can stay and nap with me! Hope you guys are having fun. We're sending love and kisses right back to all of you! Love from Sis!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

I hope you can find a place for all of your kitchen stuff. When we came to our new house, Mommie let Grammie set up the kitchen how she wants it since my grammie cooks and my mommie doesn't. Mommie's hat is silly and she tried to put it on me. Mommie and Grammie went to the outlets and Grampie was my sitter. We watched westerns and napped then later we sat on the deck. The park sounds like fun. Our outlets are dog friendly but Jake and his mommie got thrown out of skechers! Mommie's a rebel so maybe she'll take me to the stores! Ha ha! Love to my brothers from your sister Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Is Robbie feeling better today? I sure hope so. Grammie and Grampie left early yesterday and my mommie wrote out bills and we napped. Three weeks from today she starts school. She says yucko. I say she's spoiled, getting all that time off but I like having her around and still getting a paycheck. Grammie says my mommie worked hard in school for years and deserves any perks she can get. I think perks are good things, like ice cream and green beans! Can't wait to see the kitchen! Hope you guys have lots of fun today! Love to my brothers from your sister, Maddie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Glad Robbie's all better. It's amazing what we can get away with. My mommie always says it's a good thing I'm so cute cause then I get away with everything! I can't throw garbage cause ours hides in a cupboard. Very smart. The lady who had the house before us had a pug so maybe that's why. I'm gonna nap today. Hope you guys have fun! Love you, brothers, from your sis!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Hi brothers! We're having phone problems cause we had a storm last night so my mommie plug the phone into a safer outlet. When she did, though, they plugs weren't secure and we have 5% power. Not a good way to start the day. It was cool yesterday and will be cooler today. Hooray! Maybe I'll get to walk, like you. I'm trying to be good but sometimes it's tough. Hope you guys are having fun! Hugs and kisses to my brothers from your sis!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Hey brothers! Frankie is very silly to lay in a puddle. Maybe he's part picket! We had a cool day yesterday and today should be cool. I watched the lawn guys from the front window and the one asked why I'm so sad. He always talks to me. Freezies sound delicious. Mommie is supposed to go to the store so I'll put those on the list. Let me know if you got any toys or treats. Remember to use your sad faces when Daddie walks out the door. Hugs and kisses to you brothers from your sis! <3

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Hooray for sad faces. They help us SCORE! I saw pictures of the toys and they look excellent! I'm gonna try a sad face today. Our weather has been nice and cool. Yay. I knew if Mommie got that ceiling fan, the temps would drop. Mommie has to go to the eye doctor. I'll be in charge of the house. Yay me! Gotta go! I hear breakfast in my bowl! Love and hugs to my brothers and Daddie! Your sis Madison!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Not a BATH! Don’t give my mommie any ideas. I never told you my mommie, grammie, and grampie put me in my poolie last weekend. I stood perfectly still with my right front paw sticking up. That paw never got wet the whole time. I did NOT like it. Mommie wants a real pool but doesn't think our backyard is big enough. Whew! Mommie had to go to work today to pack her old office and move into her new one. I guess I'll be in charge again. Remember, bath is a four-letter-word.... Love from your favorite sister! Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Hi brothers! I hope you recovered from your bath. No, I don’t care much for poolie so my grammie and mommie stuck their feet in to cool off. Mommie got her office all boxed up and ready to be moved. Unpacking will be a mess but she will be able to do that at her own speed. We're getting a cool day today. Yay! Hope you guys have fun! Love to you brothers and to Daddie from your sis!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Wow! You guys got extra playmates! Yay! We had a quiet day yesterday, napping and resting. It's been cool but looks rainy today. Mommie will be doing chores so I'll be her assistant. Love you brothers! Love, Sis.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Ha ha. Maybe Daddie didn't think you helping was funny but I sure did. We need to do laundry here. Right now, though, I'm laying in the sun. Niiiiice. Hope you guys make it for a walk. Have fun and love each other! Love to my brothers from your sis! <3

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Do you guys have trouble deciding which way to walk since there's so many of you? Ha ha. Yesterday my mommie took me to Petco because we had a coupon for a free bad of food. She let me walk all over and then we bought some spray for my dry skin so I don’t itch. I came home and napped in the sun while Mommie worked. Time with her is running out. I wish she could take me to work! I could teach the classes! Hope you have a good day, brothers! Love from your sis and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

Tiles! Can't wait to see how those look. I hope Joker is careful and doesn't go missing again. Someone lost a chiuaua (sp?) around here recently but no one we know. Most of the dogs in my neighborhood are pretty spoiled. The only problem is people we don’t know let their dogs pool in our yard and leave it. Mommie got a sign on vacation : pool happens but not here please. Mommie says she picks up after me in OUR yard and it's disrespectful. I think we need the city to repost a sign about how there's a fine for not cleaning up after dogs. Oh well. Hope you get the right tile. Send pics! Love to my brothers from your sis!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (about 6 years ago)

It's getting hot here, too. I've been trying to be good and I'm doing a pretty god job. I started to tear at the rug and one word--pen--made me stop and walk away. Mommie was pleased. I got to see Trixie and Maxie. Trixie is now diabetic and Maxi is going blind. I tried to make noises from my deck (not really a bark) to say hello. Mommie ordered deck stain and it arrived so she has no excuses. She wants to do it when my grampie isn't here cause she hates that all he does when he comes here is work. Speaking of work, gotta go.... Love to my brothers from your sis!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Oh, Grampie would help. That's the problem. He works too hard here when he comes to visit and Mommie wants him to relax. It's funny that you don't want to go in the park. I love to walk but it rained yesterday. Mommie got sick so we napped then she went to pick up her new glasses. I kept staring at her. She looks nerdy but I thinks she likes that. Weird. Hope you have fun today. Love to you all and Daddie from me and my mommie! <3

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

I don’t think you're a brat. Tell Daddie that you're a pug and that means quirky! (Don’t tell him we're stubborn!) That's so funny that your grammie and my grammie both yell at football. My grammie knows all the teams and players and we hate their house on Sundays. Yesterday I got a BATH! I only stand on 3 legs when I get a bath. See? Quirky? I did okay and got cheerios for a prize. I'm gonna try to be good. Love to all you, brothers, from your sis! Mwah!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Wow! That sounds like an excellent day, especially the part of playing with Daddie. I saw Jake for a few minutes yesterday but the rain kept going away then coming back. Today means only one week for me and my mommie. I think when I'm in charge, I'll write a new set of house rules: pug style! Have fun and kisses from us to all you guys, Daddie, and Grammie! Love from Sis and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Yeah! You're right. It was nice and cool here yesterday. It should be cool today but not as cool. I like your idea of house rules having more of everything and less rules. I would love to take Mommie to lunch but no place will let me in. Even if I took her to a drive thru, my paws won't reach the pedals. Maybe SHE'LL take ME. She has an appointment so maybe tomorrow. The days are ticking by. Have lots of fun! Hugs and kisses to my brothers from your sis!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Frankie was just trying to get that drive in guy to work faster. People get mad at the dumbest things. If I saw Frankie do that I would laugh and cheer him on. People miss great opportunities to laugh. I was home alone during the earthquake. Mommie was at the eye dr and the store and didn't feel it but she's been known to sleep through them. Maybe that's where I get my sleep habits from. Only 5 more days with Mommie. Have fun today! Love you guys! Sis. P.S. Take care of Daddie and Grammie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Yay! Yesterday was the day for walks. I got a good long walk after Mommie came home from Wal Mart. She even bought a couple of yogurts to try freezies! Yay! We had a storm that was soooo loud last night it woke us up. I wasn't scared, just annoyed. Mommie ran around closing windows then I went back to sleep and snored. It looks like rain again. Maybe we'll play indoor games. Kisses and hugs to all you boys, Grammie, and Daddie from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Glad you made it to the park. Too bad it was so hot. We have been having cool weather still so I got another good walk yesterday. I didn't get my freezie 'cause we forgot! I'll have to remember today. Have lots of fun today. Hope you get to the park. Love you, brothers from your sis! Mwah! (Mommie sends her love, too!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Better get the right tile for Grammie. You don’t want her to be sad. I hope poor Daddie gets it right! Ha ha! Lazy days are the best. Yesterday I napped while Mommie did laundry, checkbook, phone calls--she worked all day. Only 2 days left! Then I get to be in charge! Today looks like rain but I hope not! Have fun and help Daddie with the tile! Love and hugs to my brothers from your sis! (and Mommie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Frankie is so funny! He wanted to be the first to pee on the floor--and he didn't even wait for the floor to be laid. We didn't have any yelling yesterday. I was so good. I'm going to be so excellent as Boss of the house and I'll make great rules. Yesterday I went from the bed to the couch to the deck. Laying around is fun! Guess what we saw in the backyard this morning from the window? A groundhog! Mommie wants to get rid of him but I wanna make friends with him and have him in for tea. After all, I WILL be in charge starting tomorrow! Poor Mommie! Love to you boys and Grammie and Daddie from Sis and Mommie! (who has to go back to WORK tomorrow! Ha ha!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Well, today is my big day. I am now the CEO, otherwise known as boss around here, and believe me, things are gonna change. No more limits on snacks, no more rules, rug chewing will be allowed, etc. I gotta get this in writing to make it official. Well, once I get out of bed I will. Yup, I got a groundhog but I didn't see him 'cause I was still in bed. Hope you guys have a great day! Give my love to my other brothers and Grammie and Daddie! Love from Madison Rose! P.S. I hope Mommie is having a good first day!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Yeah, a CEO is lots of responsibility: I have to determine when to eat lunch, when to lay in the sun, when to move to the couch, and when to greet Mommie at the door. I was VERY excited to see her yesterday and I jumped and wagged when she came home. Glad to hear you walked the entire way and saw your pals. Frankie is funny about mud puddles. I bet he was a mess but I bet it was funny! Hope you guys have a good day. Mommie left late today and will be home early so I'll be waitng for my walk. Love you brothers! sis (and Mommie)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

It's a good thing you guys are there to help Daddie with his naps. So far, I've been doing well but being Boss is harder than I thought. Thank goodness the long weekend is coming. We are going to see Grammie and Grampie and go camping. I may get to see Huey, too. I'm just hoping I get something good to eat. I heard something about mountain pies, little pizza sandwiches cooked over the campfire and I think I need to sample one of those. MMMMMMM. Hope you guys have a great day! Love to my brothers and Daddie from Madddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

So glad to hear you went to the park and saw friends. It's raining here today but is getting hotter and hotter. Yuck. Yesterday I stayed in bed until my mommie got home at 2:00! She was worried but I think it's my new job. I may have to resign from the CEO position and be a stay-at-home pug. I was not built for the corporate life. Hope you guys perfect your napping technique! Work on it until it's perfect. You guys are sooooo funny! Love to all my brothers and to Grammie and Daddie, too! Love from your sister! <3

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Yeah, boss is a title I'm not likely to give up. That and Shorty! Tell Frankie not to feel bad about the shower (though I think he likes it!) because I had to get a BATH yesterday. Mommie said no stinky dogs go to Grammie and Grampie's! I may get to see Huey and some of my other pug/dog friends this weekend. We're starting our vacay when Mommie gets home from work today and she only works til 12:00. Yay! Hope you guys have a fun day and weekend. I'll be online since Mommie's taking the computer and her phone. Love to you all, brothers! Sis and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Hooray for the dog park. Emma sounds like fun! We stopped at that batard Donald's house on the ride to Grammie and Grampie's and got a cheeseburger and fries! Yay! I saw Huey yesterday but it was too hot. We have a heat advisory. At least the camper is air conditioned but I don’t know how we can have a picnic with Huey and his family if it's too hot to go outside.... Hope you guys are having a fun day. Talk to you later! Love to my brothers from your sis! Mwah!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Glad to hear it's cooling off. We had a big rain through the night but it wasn't a storm. I hope it gets cooler cause yesterday was waaaaaay to hot, both for people and especially pugs. Rosie, the bulldog who lives in the camper across the street, was having a hard time too. Her daddie said she wanted to stay in the air conditioning. Grammie even forgot popsicles (pops!). She may get some today. Huey didn't even make it to my party so I guess I was stood up. That means he's not a gentleman, I guess, to answer your question. Never fear--there's more people coming today! Hope you guys are having fun and staying cool. Sending my love to all my brothers, Grammie, and Daddie! Sis and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Yay! Donald's chicky nuggets = yummie! The dog park sounds excellent! It's gonna rain again today and it's much cooler. We are going home today cause Mommie has a department meeting. The new department chair is her friend and said she'd excuse her but Mommie needs to be there. Then classes Wed. and Fri. Hope you guys are having fun. Are you having a party? Love from Sis, Mommie, Grammie, and Grampie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Pizza! Yummy! We came home yesterday because Mommie has a meeting today and it was icky and raining and will be all week. I'm at home in charge and Mommie is at work. We have some freezies but keep forgetting to eat them! Naps are good. I napped in the car ride home, all afternoon, then I got into bed at 6:00. Too much vacation! Hope you guys have a good day! Love you, brothers, from your sis and from Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

I tried to go outside yesterday but I turned right back around and came back inside. Rain, rain, rain. Good thing I'm trained to go indoors. I do NOT like to get my paws and coat wet. Yuck. You're lucky you have your grammie with you to give you nuggets. No freezies today b/c it was too cold. Rain is supposed to continue for the next WEEK. Ugh. We played indoor games after my mommie came home. I have a plastic plate that Grammie gave me and I like to chase it around on the floor. We call it ice hockey! Then I got tired and went to sleep. Hope you guys have a fun day filled with treats! Love to my brothers from your sister Maddie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Poor Daddie and his back. Be sure to be good for him and keep the other boys in line. Good thing you're a take-charge kinda pug. Have fun and give special pug love to heal Daddie's back. Remember, we're magical! I think the sister got adopted, which is good. There are lots of pugs who need our love! Hugs and kisses to my brothers from your sister (and Mommie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Glad to hear Daddie's back is feeling better. Still, best not to aggravate him. I've learned that I score more treats when I am good. I would LOVE to go on more walks. You should have my mommie. She always says she's too tired or busy and just sends me outside. Sometimes I just sit behind the fence in the front yard and watch people--or nothing at all. A hot dog is a good treat. I'd like to score one of those. Have a fun day and be good! Love from your sister and from Mommie, too!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

I bet the three of you are FAMOUS! If I saw three pugs, I would be soooooo happy, especially if it was you guys. Mommie was tired yesterday after work but she still took me for a walk. We had fun! Then we laid around til bedtime. She was thinking of staining the deck but may do school work instead. She's the chair of two departmental committees and has lots to do. Hope my brothers and Daddie have an excellent day! Love from Sis and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Yesterday must have officially been laundry day. I have nice pink and purple leopard print sheets to sleep on now because I'm such a diva and I spend so much time in bed. You guys got TONS of treats! I got some peaches and a little bit of hamburger. We are tired of leftovers. Daddie is nice to offer to help with the deck. Mommie feels bad that every time Grampie comes to visit, he ends up working on the house or yard so she wants to try to do it herself. We got a new blanket on the bed yesterday, too. We have tons of blankets 'cause we like to snuggle. We are feeling sad about 9/11. Mommie lived in Georgia then and there were so many stories and rumors flying that morning. When the computer guy at GSU told her a plane went down in western PA, she freaked 'cause that's where Grammie and Grampie live (though they live further north and were okay). Mommie's brother worked for United and was leaving the airport and saw all the smoke as he drove home. Now on tv there's a documentary on about the military and the effects on soldiers after the Iraq war. Very sad. Mommie sees the veteran students and even the toughest ones can be reduced to tears if they talk about it. One guy told her he just pretended it was a dream, that it was happening to someone else. Now these poor kids come home and can't get the health care they need from the injuries they got in the war. Sorry for the rant. Today will be terribly upsetting. You can tell me about the 9/11 tribute after you go. Extra hugs and love on this sad day to my brothers and to Daddie from Maddie and her mommie.

Yesterday was a sad day. You are lucky you could go honor those who were lost. My pillies are wonderful and squishy. I'm not sure what my title is besides "Pug in Residence" but as long as I can keep doing what I want, I don't really care. Back to work today. Yesterday I got out of bed at 11:30. Guess I'm just getting older (or lazier!) Love you boys and Daddie, too, from Maddie and Mommie

Tonight is the football game and daddie said they sell 30,000 hot dogs and other stuff. Just think of all the dropped goodies we could scarf up plus what ever the nice people would give us. We could go home stuffed. BLISS. But we found out there is no pug parking so it's a long walk. Let me know what you think. Your brothers and daddie. MAWH.

1be64dcc482a0049_s

We always post on the wrong wall (though you guys are the only ones we speak with on pugspot anymore). I LOVE your idea of going to the game qand scoring treats. We could waddle home. Maybe Joe Paterno will have a special Penn State Pug Day and we can be the entertainment at halftime! The weather here is turning cold and is rainy so no walk today. After work, we can play indoor games. I would like to go to the treat bar but Mommie's been waaaaay too busy. We have the best lives, don't we? Wake up, nap, snack, nap, dinner, nap, then go to bed cause we're all so tired! Ha ha! Love you guys and Daddie and Grammie, too! From your sis and Mommie

Dear Brothers, our rain cleared up by the time Mommie got home so I did get my walk PLUS she had stopped at the store on her way home and got me some treats. Yay. Funny about Frankie barking at horses. I wonder what that's about. It got cold, cold, cold last night but we have tons of blankies and pillies so we just snuggled really close. I plan on staying in bed until Mommie comes home this afternoon. She's still thinking about staining the deck because it rained the last time but I think she is tired and just wants to come home and sleep instead of stopping and buying paint rollers and stuff. I could be a big help, I'm sure. I'll be the onlyl stained pug in the United States! Hope you guys have lots of fun today. Love from your sister Maddie and from Mommie.

Last night we snuggled even more. Heat didn't come on but it felt pretty chilly. Yesterday I got to walk with Mommie and then we came in and rested. Frankie must be your watch dog--alert to everything. I don't even realize if someone new walks up to our front door and when I meet the person, I make friends immediately. Tell Daddie thanks for the staining advice. She has lots of questions but if she asks Grampie then he'll know she's doing it on her own and he'll insist on helping. We have a pugfest coming up October 8 and may go to that. I've never been to one but my sister went and wore a leopard dress and hat with a pug pin and strangers took her picture. Sometimes I wish Sister was here with me. Thanks for being my brothers! Have a good day! Love to you guys from us girls! Maddie and Mommie

The deck has some weird stuff and not finished but at least the wood is being protected. Grampie found out and said they could finish it when they come to visit. Maybe next weekend. Thus weekend they've been packing up the camper for the season. Sad. Grammie found a couple of stray pellies and she missed me. I snorted into the phone to her! Ha ha! Today Mommie has to do some work and she may be seliing our old washer and dryer to some former students. Yay! I'll get company! Til then, I'm gonna go back to sleep! My mommie sometimes gets cheap clothes at the goodwill for pug costumes. One year, Sister wore a baseball uniform and won three prizes: littlest (she was a pup), best costume (the baseball cap did it!), and most talented (she shook hands for cheerios--she could do it nonstop and so can I!) 30.00 in prizes with a quarter costume! Have fun. Our weekend is almost over. Love to you from us!

I bet my grammie was yelling at football yesterday, too. Grampie found out about the deck because Mommie had to ask him if he left any paint rollers and pans at our house. He told her to wait for him to stain it but she said it's not fair for him to come and have to work during a visit. I think they are coming this next weekend. There are some mistakes on the deck, places where Mommie didn't rub in the pools of stain, so it looks like milk spilled out there, but we aren't going to make her feel bad. She told Grampie that next time she'll know better. I suspect there will be more deck staining if the stain is delivered in time. Glad Baer had a happy birthday. I can't believe you will be six! You carry it well! I think I know what a chick magnet is 'cause Mommie says I'm a guy magnet. I think it means Mommie and Daddie get to meet new people and make friends. Ha ha. Which day is your gotcha day? Love from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Well, Mommie ordered the stain but it may not be here in time for Grampie to help. Ha ha! Glad to hear the kitchen will be done! Yay! You need to learn to work those new handles. Grammie always promises me she's gonna tie a rope to the frige and teach me how to open it. We will want to see pictures. Both of your gotcha days are close to Halloween. I bet you are excited and will get lots and lots of treats. We can't wait to see the FB video. For now, I'll be napping while Mommie works at home today. Have a fun! Love from your sister Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Yay! Glad to hear the cabinets are in. Too bad about the dog food, though. I hope Daddie is okay from his doctor's visit. Tell him it's like going to the vet and he can get a prize afterwards. Maybe a cheerio! You guys are so nice about toys. I just keep hanging onto my toys until they are so ripped and smelly they have to be thrown out. I bet you'll get lots more if you give some away. You should NOT run out of the house. One day, someone left our front gate open, and I started to creep away. I got as far as the bottom of the driveway, then I stopped to smell the smells on the ground and Mommie caught me. We have to remember to be safe and not run around loose. That's why we have leashes and harnesses--not just to make us look good. Waiting for pictures of the cabinets and kitchen table! Love from your sister Maddie and from Mommie. Don't worry about typos. I always have some!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Sounds like a good day, especially playing with friends in the park. The treats make it even better! Mommie gave me a walk and it was HOT! Then she worked while I napped. Today she can work at home. Either later today or tomorrow we get Grammie and Grampie. The bad news is the stain came in. The good news it is scheduled to rain so no outside work! Yay! We can all play indoor games! I love you, brothers. Kisses and love to you boys and Daddie from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Always good to have a clingy lap day. I will do that with Grampie later on, when I settle down for a nap or for bed. But of course before that, I will follow Grammie like a shadow because she gives me treats and treats and treats. She also plays toys with me. Only she knows how to be rough. It's gonna rain for the next couple of days, so instead of everyone working in the yard and on the deck, we will be able to play indoor games. Yay! I bed Uncle David's girlfriend will love you and if she doesn't she's not a keeper. My mommie used to have the "Rosie Test" when she would meet a new guy. If they didn't get the importance of a pug, well, bye bye. One guy called Sister "Thingy" and Mommie flipped out. Another said she looked like Winston Churchill. They only barely remained friends cause they worked in the same department. The only keepers have been guys who like to get on the floor and play with me and talk to me. The best was a guy who used to come to the house and he named all the toys and gave them all voices and story lines. He would even sing. He would come to the house even if Mommie wasn't home just to hang out with Sister. Ha ha. Those guys are few and far between. Be sure not to pee on the new carpets! Love from Maddie and Mommie to all of you!

Christmas in September sounds excellent! My Grammie brought me two new toys--a pumpkin and scary cat for Halloween. They came over before Mommie got home and caught me in bed. Then Mommie came home and her and Grampie bought a fan for one of the bedrooms and put that up. Then the pizza man came--yum! I don't know what's happening today but I 'll keep you posted. Everyone here sends hugs and kisses to everyone there! Love, Maddie!

Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Dear Brothers, I'm glad Denise liked you and took you for a walk. She sounds like a keeper. You can tell a lot about a person by how they are with dogs. You are lucky to have a pug event. We may decide to go to pugfest! Right now I'm tired but we are having fun. I had pancakes with Grampie! Hope you're having fun. Grammie and Grampie send their love! Love and hugs from me and Mommie!

Sounds like you've been eating good lately. Why are they always trying to put us pugs on a diet? I LOVE my food too much for diets. I do like green beans, though. If you starve, put your face on the food bowl and look sad. That's what I do. Mommie got sick the other day and stayed home today. I'm still in bed but I'll get up later to cuddle her. Hope you have a fun day and don't try to climb any trees! Love from Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

You boys are soooo funny. The new carpet sounds nice--you can be comfy on it. Time out AND grounded at the same time sounds like overkill. Tell Daddie I say one or the other. Tell Frankie not to escape, though, or he could get hurt. Same to you. Mommie is feeling better today so I guess it's back to school tomorrow. I weight about 25 pounds but I can't seem to get lower. I am long for a pug and I don't think I look fat. Plus I'm full of energy. Yay for green beans. The girl at the vet's laughs cause when Mommie says green beans, my head turns. Maybe I'll get a freezie tonight. Mommie bought them but keeps forgetting to give them to me. Have fun, grounded pugs! Love from your sister Maddie and Mommie.

Hurry and catch that cookie before it disappears. Our sad faces get us out of a world of trouble. Mommie's back to work this morning. I even got out of bed at 5:00 to see her off. She gave me cheerios! It was cool yesterday, enough that we took a walk on our street. I got green beans and fruit but we keep forgetting the freezies. I'll have to leave a note on the freezer! Love you guys! From Maddie and Mommie! P.S. Take care of Daddie and his bad back. Don't make him chase you or pick you up! Enjoy your new carpet--but no peeing on it!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Hi guys! My mommie hurried home from work yesterday but just as she got to town, the rains came pouring down. Instead of a walk, we played indoor games. When Mommie swept with the carpet shark, she made it chase me and I ran and ran and yapped and yapped. I kinda like the shark but it kinda makes me nervous. Our leaves our changing and it looks so pretty. So glad to hear that Daddie's back is feeling better. Give him lovies and snuggles to make sure he feels good. Have a good day. We'll be working at home today: I'll be on the couch and Mommie will be grading papers. Yuck. I offered to chew them up...... Love to all you guys from us girls! Maddie and Mommie! P.S. I got a mixture of carrots and green beans! WOW!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Sounds like a nice and snuggly cuddlefest. As the nights get colder, we are doing the same thing (will less pugs, however!) Yesterday was very cold but we walked anyway. The gals who read our water meter played with me today 'cause one of them has a pug! I LOVE them since they understand me and adore me, as a pug should be adored. We are very glad it is Friday. I got up with Mommie again this morning (trying to score treats) and am going to rest on the couch. It's supposed to rain today again so more indoor toys. I'll play with my punkinhead toy Grammie andGrampie bought me. I drag it everywhere! Grammie send me a card and I bit it, I was so excited. Ha ha! Have fun today! All our love from your sister and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Quiet days our good. Not surprised the mail lady likes you guys. what's not to like? Be sure to get pics of Pugs in the Park. Yesterday we walked fast cause it was cold and about to rain and I came in and played with punkinhead. My grammie thinks it's funny I carry it around but it's from her and Grampie so of course I carry it. Next Saturday is pugfest and we have to decide if we want to go. It's about an hour away and will depend on how Mommie feels. Have fun today and talk to you later! Love from Maddie and Mommie P.S. It got cooooold last night. Brrrrrrr.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Yesterday, it was so cold and rainy that when Mommie opened the door for me to go out, I looked out, saw the rain, felt the cold, and turned away from the door. Yes, we needed the fireplace last night and we slept a lot yesterday. It was just that kind of day. Only one more day left of the weekend (boo) but we will try to have fun before tomorrow. Have a good day. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

I am so glad you guys got to go to pugs in the park. Sounds like you met a lot of pugs and friends. Pug people are soooo friendly. My mommie tried to talk my Grammie into fostering pugs but Grammie gets too nervous. When Mommie went on vaction this summer, I ate a bite of paper towel and Grammie worried for days. Mommie tried to tell her that paper towel is practically part of my diet. You guys must have been work out!!! I'd love to foster a pug but I'm not around enough. Maybe I could do it in the summers. All our love from us girls to you guys! P.S. LOVE the pictures!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Awwwww, I would love to see you guys on tv. Did you tape it? Or is it on the internet somewhere? How cool is that? Now you guys are famous. Frankie probably barked 'cause he was saying, "hey, guys, that's US!" I understand you being tired. This cold and rainy weather has made us all so drowsy. I keep wrapping up in blankets and pillies. Mommie had to go to work for a meeting plus she should be working on other stuff (committee work, grading papers, etc.) I have to keep on her about getting her stuff done. She's such a procrastinator. Hope you get lots of napping in today. Our weather is still cold and rainy but should clear up by the weekend. Yay! Love to you guys from us girls! Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Pugsly, I'm VERY impressed by your title and your reporting skills. Is your company PNN? How awful that someone took that puppy (though I can understand the allure). Glad she got found and I hope she's okay. I was sad to hear she was hungry. What idiot wouldn't feed a poor pug puppy? I saw your picture and I was so impressed with my brothers being tv stars. I wish we could have seen it on television so we could have cheered for you guys. It's a bit warmer today and I'm hoping that Mommie can come home from work today for a walk. Yesterday it was misty but she still walked me 'cause I'm getting a little bit bad. We haven't decided about pugfest. Have fun playing and napping! Love from us girls to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Glad those evil puppy stealers got caught. Mommie's at work now so we won't know til later if she fixed our computer or not. It was nice yesterday so i hung out on the front porch and the deck for a while, then layed in the sun in the house. Poor Frankie, he just has lots to say. We didn't snuggle too much 'cause it warmed up. It will be near 80 this weekend. We can't figure it out. Hope you guys have fun. We still haven't decided about pugfest but we'll keep you posted. Love from us girls to all you guys! P.S. I love zoomies. I call them "tazzing" like the tasmanian devil!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

I don't think we're gonna make it to pugfest. Mommie's not moving too quickly and she forgot to print the directions to get there and I think she is just plain worn out. Maybe we'll get it together still. My sister went to pugfest and she had fun but it was hard on the pugs when it was hot and today is supposed to be a hot one. We'll see. Hope you guys have a fun day! Love from us girls to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

We have the exact opposite problem. It was wayyy too hot yesterday and Mommie was afraid if I went to pugfest I would have trouble breathing. I also had a problem yesterday that scared Mommie. We were in the house and I started panting and panting and couldn't stop. It wasn't hot in the house and I hadn't been running around. It was scary so Mommie is keeping an eye on me. I haven't done it since but I'm gonna try to be quiet today. I hope it was just something silly and not serious. Hope you guys have fun and that the rain stops. Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Mommie got so busy working at home that she lost track of time. She tried to get me to chase the flashlight over the weekend but I wasn't having any of it. Too much like work. The idea of a secret package sounds intriguiging. Christmas gifts already? Halloween toys? A pony? It could be ANYTHING! One of you should peek while the other two play lookout! Good thing you are watching the house. There was another home invasion down near the campus. Sleepy little California is suddenly becoming a hotbed of crime. Mommie is always careful when she walks from the parking garage in the morning. I would probably let the bad guys in and feed them, too, as long as they gave me some. After all, it's the kind thing to do, right? Ha ha. Mommie has to stay for a special meeting until at least 4:00 today and probably won't get home until at least 4:30. Yucko. She'll be waaaaaay too tired to play. I'll try to be good, though. Love you guys, too! Hugs and kisses from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Hi guys! I was sooooooo good yesterday, even though Mommie was gone from 5:30 in the morning until almost 4:30 yesterday. I waited to eat my supper and she gave me some peaches as a treat. I wasn't wild at all, just played a little with my pumpkinhead toy and she and I fell asleep early. She's supposed to go to campus today for a meeting but had a migraine most of the night and all this morning. She may still go but probably not since she hasn't gotten out of bed yet (neither have I!) except for her coffee. Her migraine meds make her sleepy and nauseous. We're very excited for your gotcha day and Mommie has it marked on her calendar. Frankie's will be soon after. I wish we had a treat lady, although the other day I met our new neighbor and she petted and petted me and I tried to go home with her. Jake's Mommie came over the other day to talk and I tried to go home with her, too! Keep an eye on those presents. I bet the bandanas are nice. Be glad Daddie takes the time to make sure you have those things. Mommie is usually too busy--or so she says. I don't know if I'm dressing up this year or not. Last year at Halloween, I got tired and went inside to nap on the couch. Have a fun day and I'll talk to you guys later. Keep an eye on those presents and party stuff! Wish I could be there to help you celebrate! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Mommie was sick the ENTIRE day yesterday. There was a point in the middle of the day when she thought she might get better but her headache came back. I was very good and quiet, ate my peaches and laid down with her. She even had to miss her meeting. Was the little dog mean? I don't like that. I still bark at Lil Bit because he growled at me and Mommie when we first moved in the neighborhood. I pinned him to the ground once after that in my yard to show him who's boss. Now he's afraid of me. Tell Daddie and Grammie that Mommie got her new glasses and she loves them so they should get some. Sometimes she doesn't even want to wear her contacts--that's how much she likes her glasses. A play date sounds fun. I usually have those at Grammie's house. I think Daddie is gathering things for a gotcha day party! Yay! Keep me posted. Gotta go. Thanks for the good wishes for Mommie! Love from Maddie and Mommie! P.S. if you're allowed, can you give us your address so we can send you a gotcha day prize? If not, we understand.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

I am concerned about Hootie. Have you checked under all blankets, beds, and couches? Maybe he's playing hide and seek. It's cold today but I got a walk yesterday before it rained. I'm gonna try to help Mommie. Maybe I'll just nap! Have a fun day and good luck finding Hootie! Love from us girls to you guys! Maddie& Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Oh, no. I wonder where Hootie went. Maybe he's on vacation! The dog park sounds fabulous. I wish we had something like that. Until we find one, Mommie and I will walk on our street. It's pretty nice and quiet since it's a "no outlet" street. I chased leaves the other day and it was so windy yesterday I almost blew across the yard. Mommie and I had an incident at Petsmart yesterday. Someone said something mean about me (I don't know why. I wasn't bothering anyone) and my mommie swore at her. She was so upset that someone would say that I was too fat. It almost ruined our day but then we went into Petsmart and bought stuff and had FUN! Hope you guys are getting ready for the big party. Let us know when you get the package. Mommie will be mailing it out tomorrow. Hope the car presents are lots of fun! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

I was getting threatened with a bath yesterday, too, but my mommie was too busy to do it. My mommie had a friend in Georgia who used to say my sister Rosie was fermenting, that's how bad she would get. He was teasing because he really loved sister and he liked Mommie, too. Only one more day for your gotcha party. Mommie is sending a little something for all of you. Hope you have a good day. I'm in charge at home today! Love from Maddie and her mommie. P.S. Grammie and Grampie are still laughing at what Mommie said to that lady at Petsmart. They said, "good for her!" for telling that woman off!

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Happy gotcha day, Pugsly! The computer is acting up again so we're writing by phone! Have a fun day and take lots if pics for us girls! Love from Maddie &me her mommie!

What happened to my post? I tried and tried to post a happy birthday message and I don't see it. Hope you don't think I forgot you. !The postman said maybe Wednesday for the package (though that seemed pretty quick to me!) I'm so glad you had a good day with lots of toys and treats. More are on the way. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

I don't understand what is happening on pugspot. It didn't let me post yesterday on the thread and today it won't let me post on your pictures. I love the toys and pup cakes and I especially like the one that's just for ME! Wish I coulda been there. Keep looking for the mailman and your package! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

So glad you got the package and enjoy its contents. I saw the pictures and they were funny. Did you ever find Hootie? If not, the octopus can subtitute for a while until he returns. Yesterday was cold and blowy but I still ran around outside. Only one more day til Friday and the weekend! Yay. Have fun and enjoy your treats! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

I bet Daddie had quite a time trying to capture three pugs celebrating a gotcha day! We have trouble with just me. It's been cold and rainy here, sometimes just cold and overcast. I'll go outside only if it's not raining. I have no idea what to call the octopus. Lefty, maybe? Funny, my grammie and grampie got their eyes checked the other day, too. They both have to have cataract surgery. I don't know what that is but it sounds scary. They don't seem worried, though. Were you not feeling well? Is that why you didn't want to eat? Or did you just need a little TLC? I threw up last night but I think it's cause I ate and ran around wild, running from the shark vacuum. Glad it's the weekend! Have fun and let me know what you name the octopus and the others! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Wow! You guys had a fun and busy day. I bet the kitty was cute. Why couldn't he come out and play? The dog park sounds amazing, lots of fun and lots of dogs. Can't wait to see the pictures. Snow will be here soon so enjoy the park. Last night it went into the 30's--brrrrrrrr! Have a fun day and stay warm! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Oooh, a hissing kitty can't be good. Best that he stayed in his cage. It was nice that you gave him some toys to play with. Maybe eventually you guys will all become friends. My mommie had the Penn State football game on the other night and every time I nodded off, she started screaming and yelling at the players. Does she think they can hear her? Mommie got all her work done and we played with pumpkinhead. The good news is this: Wednesday she doesn't have to go to work because classes are cancelled so people can go to something called Mission Day (where the president of the university talks and there are all sorts of meetings.) Since she doesn't have meeting on Tuesday and Thursday, that means THREE days off. Well, she'll be grading more papers she gets today but still. Today is like a Thursday for her! Yay. Maybe we'll go to petsmart or petco. It's cold and we snuggle at night (somehow I always end up on Mommie's side of the bed and she ends up on mine with NO blankets. Have a fun day and enjoy playing! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Yeah, it's like a LONG weekend in the middle of the week. We celebrated by staying up late and sleeping in. Mommie took me to McDonald's and the girl in the window said," Your puppy is so cute!" Much better than the lady who said I didn't need anymore to eat. You'll be able to meet lots of dogs and friends at the dog park. Excellent. You shouldn't be sending us a package. We're starting to put Frankie's gotcha day gift together so he will get it on time. Don't tell, though. I like to watch what goes in the box and I have to approve of everything. Kisses back to our favorite guys from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Daddie had a busy day it seems. We didn't do much yesterday but get a nap and this morning we slept until 10:00 (though I'm still in the bed). That NEVER happens. I keep hearing the word bath but Mommie has to go get medicine scripts and groceries so that should be first. Then she has a couple more papers to grade. I'll try to distract her. Too bad the dog park didn't come sooner, before the bad weather. Enjoy your day and have fun! Love from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Wow! That's lots of snow! I hope it's not headed our way. It seems too early for that dosort of thing. I don't blame you for not wanted to go out in the snow. Icky. I'll stay indoors and go and I get a cheerio if I do. Glad you like the Maddie treats. I approved them specifically for you guys. Mommie and I get one more day together then it will be Friday. We like these kind of weeks. Stay warm and have fun playing indoor games! Love you guys from Maddie and her mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Glad your snow stopped. It got VERY cold here last night (maybe even a record low) but Mommie had just changed our sheets and put a new blanket on the bed, so we're set to go. The next step will be the down comforter, but it's not cold enough for that. I LOVE the ornament--it made up for me having to get a bath. I also loved the card (I bit it--a sign I like something) and the envelope (I tore it). We have the ornament on the mantle with our other pug items and Mommie says it looks just like me when I scratch. Mommie said something about going to the post office today but I'm supposed to keep it a secret. Time will tell. Mommie had a hard time taking my picture 'cause I was sooooo excited plus she kept saying "sit" and that usually means a food treat. Have a fun day and stay warm...... Thanks again and love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Hooray for packages! We are bad at keeping secrets so help us out. We tried to schedule the delivery for Thursday so we hope it makes it that day. The postman said Thursday so paws crossed. We love the ornament. Here's the big news: we have SNOW. There are a couple of inches and we thought we'd only get a dusting. We got a picture. I went outside and went over to where the snow pile started then came right back in. Grammie is making Christmas cookies for us! We are hoping to have a quiet day today since Mommie is mostly caught up on work. Hope you guys stay warm. Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie!

Poor Daddie and Grammie! They messed up Mommie's contacts and when she went in for the checkup after a week, she made the doctor give her different ones. Now she doesn't even need her reading glasses with her contacts (but her glasses, which are big and nerdy, have invisible bifocals). They kept messing up my grammie's glasses, too. This week (I think) is when she gets her eyes operated on. Yucko. I don't blame Daddie for saying those words because sometimes they need to be said (and my mommie says them A LOT!) It's good that you were there for him. We pugs have an important job. Have you started planning anything for Frankie's gotcha day? We send a secret present and are sooooo excited. Don't tell, though. Have a fun and relaxing day. We still have snow on the ground but I don't think we're getting anymore. I sure hope not. Love to all of you from both of us. Maddie and Mommie

A couple of Mommie's friends at work have also been having trouble getting their glasses corrected. One lady told her the doctor said something about "a margin" with different strengths. Guess that means they can make mistakes. Glad you are enjoying your treats. Can't wait to hear about the next box. Uh-oh, I guess that means more pictures. Our snow is gone but it is still kinda cold. We'll send our love to Grammie. Have fun and stay warm! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

Our trick or treat started off slow but picked up. It was cold, dark, and rainy but the rain stopped and kids kept coming. Mommie told them "take a big handful" and they said, "you're the nicest lady!" She was just trying to get rid of all our candy. We still have tons left but Mommie can give it to her classes tomorrow. Sounds like the people fussed over you guys the way they did over me. This group of high school boys were so excited, yelling "you have a PUG! I love PUGS" and they stopped to play with me. My tail just wagged and wagged. One father stopped to talk about a pug he used to have and ask about me. Are you guys getting excited about Frankie's gotcha day? Will there be pupcakes? Keep me posted on the progress. Stay warm and Happy Halloween! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Sorry to hear about the snow. How much do you have? Are you getting more? Ours is gone and we got to walk. Mommie worked late and is finally getting to the computer. She had all sorts of students and problems today. She even forgot to take the Halloween candy to school. Pupcakes sound fabulous! I don't think Frankie is mean. I think he is just overprotective. I growl at Little Bit every time I see him because he growled the day we met him. I never bit him but I took him down in our yard. The mail man said Thursday so we are hoping the package gets there in time. We love to buy and give gifts. Yay! Grammie is good but she said she's getting nervous. Grampie will be there to take care of her, plus we can be there now that we are in Pennsylvania. Hope you guys have fun playing. Be careful with strange dogs at the dog park in case they are mean. We love you and don't want you to get hurt. Love and hugs to all you guys from Maddie and Mommie!

Happy Gotcha Day, Frankie! We are sooooo excited for you and hope you have an excellent day and a fun celebration filled with lots of love and treats. Glad Grammie's glasses are working. Nothing worse than not being able to see. Just be careful of those other dogs even though I know you are tough. I can be tough, too, but we don't want you guys hurt. Then i would have to show up and kick some butt (that's what Mommie says, but she doesn't say "butt"!) Keep up posted on the festivities. We'll be working at home today (yuck to the working part but yay to the home part!) Get party pictures! Love to you all from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Dear Frankie, I'm so glad you enjoyed your package. Gotcha day's should be celebrated with lots of toys and treats, I think! You still have your party to look forward to! Wow. You're gonna be one tired pug. Can't wait to hear about your day and to see pictures! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

I can just picture all you guys sitting in the window and waiting for the box to come. I bet the mail lady thought you were funny! I know I do. Glad to hear that you are enjoying the treats and toys. Will Taz wear a party hat? I can't wait to see the pictures and wish we could be there to celebrate with you in person! Have a PUGTASTIC day! love from Maddie and Mommie!

p.s. Mommie says take that apostrophe out of days because it's wrong and driving her crazy. She hates to make mistakes!

I am so about pictures of you guys! Mommie got a new printer a while ago (maybe a month or two) and still hasn't hooked it up. Don't spend all your pug dollars on us, though. If you send pics that WE have to print, Mommie will HAVE to get our printer working. Nice getting an extra hour of sleep. I don't know what's happening today, probably Mommie grading papers. ugh. Have a great day! Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Wow! Eggs and bacon! I wish my mommie ate breakfast but she just takes her coffee in the car. I woke up with her this morning and found my "good-morning-cheerios" early and at them so Mommie had to give me more so she could leave. That time thing messed me up, too. I jumped into the bed at 4:00. Maybe that's why I was up so early. Are the donut treats good? I really wanted one but Mommie said, no, these are for Frankie and the boys. Mommie will have a busy week--5 days so I'll be in charge a lot. Have fun with each other! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Wow! We love pictures, especially of you guys because you're so funny and make us laugh. That will give us something to look forward to since Mommie is so busy this week. I got on the phone for the past two days and made noises for Grammie and she thinks I'm talking to her. I got lots to say since I stay home alone a lot. Snow sounds like a terrible idea. Yesterday Mommie and I were walking and Jake and his mommie caught up with us and we walked together. Jake and I kept twisting our leashes. Mommie has to go to the doctor today because she has a tiny mark on her face and she's has skin cancer in the past so we are a little worried about that. Paws crossed that it's nothing serious. Have a fun day and we'll talk later! Love from Maddie and her mommie!

I'm so glad that Frankie is enjoying the dinosaur. Sometimes I miss the couch too but I always pretend I meant to bash my face into the cushions, walking around very dignified. We had a good walk yesterday when Mommie finally got home and then we ran into Trixie and Maxie's mom, who came out to talk when she saw us. I really have her fooled and she always says what a good and sweet girl I am. We don't see her much because the dogs are sooooo sick, diabetic and blind and struggling. They don't go out to walk any more. Anyway, I was very good and sat there while she and Mommie talked about 3 miillion years (which is about an hour). Thank you for all the paws crossed for Mommie. She thinks of herself as your mommie, too. She went to the doctor and got a referral to have a spot on her face removed. They'll test it and then we'll know. She's done this before and it's usually nothing but once it was starting to be skin cancer. We'll just keep our paws crossed. Mommie is home sick today so maybe we'll be feeling better later. Have lots of fun today with Dino and the Doughboys (that sounds like a rock group, huh?) Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Mommie's feeling better today. I stayed close to her yesterday and I'm certain that made her feel better. The scottie sounds like fun. What was his name? You're lucky to have that park. We are worried about Trixie and Maxie. It doesn't sound too good. We are looking forward to today's mail though we have to wait for Mommie to get home from work. Have a good day and stay warm! Love from Maddie and Mommie

We LOVE the pictures! They are so big and just gorgeous. Now we have to get our new printer working so we can do pictures, too. I read the card then I took a bite out of it (I do that with all cards I like) so now it has little tooth marks in it. I got pears with my supper last night and I was very excited. We walked but it was very cold yesterday and will be cold again today. Thanks again for our pictures! Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie

Poor Robbie. He must have been so frightened. No wonder he needed special attention after that. Is he better today? I got my hears cleaned (yuk) but I got a cheerio for being good. Somehow when we woke up this morning, I was spooning Mommie! Ha ha. We're hoping for a good weekend but Mommie's at a breaking point and isn't motivated to do a whole lot. Thanks for the tip on printing paper. We gotta get moving on our new printer. Have a fun day. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

We had an accidental nap so we didn't do too much. Mommie did some stuff around the house (anything to avoid grading papers) and now she has to grade today. We had Grammie's chicken soup to stay warm and I went outside a few times but it was cold. Mommie watched some silly movie and I fell asleep. Hope you guys have fun today and stay warm! Love from Maddie and her mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Wow! A surprise visitor and new friend! Poor thing. He probably panicked when he saw three pugs barrelling at him. Guess he didn't know we're all just full of love. Did you post his picture? The soup was delicious (Grammie freezes it so we have it whenever we want) and I got lots of carrots and chicken pieces from it. Mommie got one whole class graded and all but about 6 papers from another class graded. That's pretty good for her. She was on a roll. Good thing Hootie came back so you can play with him. Is Clarance keeping his tentacles to himself? Have a fun day. I'm staying in bed while Mommie goes to work in the rain. Love from Maddie and her mommie!

Clarence and Dino have both been good and still in one piece. We got up early today cause daddie had a Dr. appointment and when he got home he said we needed and outing. So it was off to petco for dog food and a stop at the treat bar and pets from all the people then off to the dog park to run around. It was a fun day and naps after and I licked daddie's hand. He says I can't hold my licker. Have a great day. Love you sis. All of us.

Just got an E mail about pictures with Santa. I guess it's getting to be that time again. Robbie is starting his Christmas list already. And we haven't devoured the turkey yet. OH I didn't tell you when we got to petco I pooped on the floor but got treats from the lady anyway. Pugsly

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Wow! You guys had an excellent day. Petco and dogpark and treats. I hope Daddie is okay. Mommie needs to make her doctor's appointment but keeps putting it off and Grammie yells at her. If Mommie gets her procedure, Mommie can go with her friends to Florida over Christmas but even that isn't getting her moving. If she goes to Florida, i get to hang with Grammie and Grampie. YAY. Are you getting pictures with Santa? Remember how awful my Santa was last year? It didn't even look like Santa. We'll see if we go this year. Maybe we'll check out the Santa first. Can't hold your licker, huh? That's a good one. I love you guys and hope you have a good day. Love from Maddie and Mommie

Awwwww, who came up with dumb rule about no pugs at the table? One Thanksgiving, my sister got on a chair because she thought she was invited to Thanksgiving dinner, but she got put in her cage. I bet the dinette set it pretty. Send a pic if you can. I had a bad experience yesterday. Mommie took me to get my nails cut and three people couldn't do it so I have to go in on Tuesday and have them sedate me. Yucko. Mommie asked about the picture with Santa and said the one last year sucked (her word, not mine) and the girl said she didn't know who Santa would be. I did see an AWFULLY big bag that Mommie carried out to the car and I wanted to investigate but she said not til Christmas. Whatever it is, it's ENORMOUS! Does Pepe speak spanish? Ha ha. We are okay here and glad Daddie is fine. Mommie finally made her appointment for the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. We'll keep you posted. Have fun and we'll talk soon. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Poor Grammie. Is she okay? Make sure to give her special pug love because it's magic and makes everyone feel better quick. The kitchen table is so nice and I hope you get to sit at it for a meal! We are going to Grammie and Grampie's for t-day because Grampie has to get his one eye done the day after Thanksgiving. Guess we're all getting something done that week. Yuck. At least I'll be there as a seeing eye dog. I'll lead him to the kitchen and show him where my treats are. I bet Daddie bought all kinds of yums for Thanksgiving. I can count on Grammie to make sure I get lots of goodies. Grammie even wanted to keep me AFTER thanksgiving but Mommie doesn't see why. Grammie says cause Mommie will have her procedure but that's nothing. Mommie NEEDS me. I think Grammie just misses me and wants me to come and stay forever. Ha ha. Give our love to everyone and kiss Grammie extra special so she feels better! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (almost 6 years ago)

Grampie thinks it's funny I'll be his seeing eye dog. I may be Grammie's too, since she goes in today for her other eye. She's less worried now that she's been through it once. Next week will be fun: lots of fun and NO WORK. I just have to go to the vet and be sedated to get my nails done. I got so upset the other day the vet thought I was gonna pass out. Only today and Monday and Mommie is done with work until after thanksgiving. Yay. I think Frankie was smart to pick out his chair. I think you and Robbie should do the same so you get a good place for dinner. Is Grammie feeling any better todaY? Love and kisses to all of you from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I'll be the best seeing-eye dog ever! I know what the can opener sounds like and I know good things come out of the fridge and the microwave beeps. Grammie got through her eye operation okay. Sorry to hear about Daddie and his glasses but glad Grammie is better. If they were still wrong, I don't blame him for asking his money back. People need to learn how to do their jobs and do them correctly. I'm sorry he had to turn purple but glad you calmed him down. You guys better figure out that table trick and practice a few times 'cause thanksgiving is almost here. Tell Frankie if he needs any pointers on being sneaky that he should email me. After Monday at work and my appointment on Tuesday, we'll be free to visit Grammie and Grampie. Grammie can't wait to see me and says she misses me. She's still trying to keep me AFTER thanksgiving. Mommie still says no! It's cold here today so we're gonna bundle up. I sat by the fireplace last night. Have a good day in pugville! Love you guys from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s

We slept most of yesterday, too. Great minds think alike. One good thing about going to Grammie and Grampie's is that we don't have to clean. We do have to pack, which we haven't started to do yet. Eeeek. It will be fun to have company because they will spoil you and give you treats. Tony got brave when he was on the other side of the fence. Ha ha. Mommie will work tomorrow (if there are any students left) and that will be her work week. Can't wait for a few days off. Have fun napping today and be good for Daddie. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Ha ha. We napped again too, then had the nerve to go to bed early. You got pizza AND hot dogs AND green beans? I won't get the good stuff til we get to Grammie and Grampie's house. It was nice of you to stay up with Grammie. We haven't even started packing, but you're right. I take the longest and have the most stuff. I'm a diva, after all. Good luck cleaning the house. I have my doctor's appointment tomorrow for my nails and Mommie is worried. She thinks there should be another way to get my nails done but she doesn't know what else to do. My one nail is curling into my foot so I need to have it done. We won't know if we're leaving Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on how my procedure goes. Have fun today and help lots with the house cleaning. I usually try to eat the dust! Love from Maddie and Mommie

Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Dear Boys, I dropped Maddie off at the vet about 30 minutes ago. They'll do bloodwork to make sure she's okay then they will sedate her. For some reason, I'm really nervous about this today so keep your paws crossed for us. That sounds like a fun chasing game. I do that to Maddie and she runs and runs. I have to try to pack today but keep your paws crossed. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Thanks, guys, for all your love and support. I came home and was really loopy but I started to wake up and then I wanted FOOD. Then I wanted MORE FOOD. My favorite lady at the vet carried me around for a good part of the day 'cause I'm one of her favorites. Mommie called an hour and a half early to pick me up 'cause she couldn't wait! Mean ole dinosaur sounds like fun. I'll be able to play rough with Grammie. It's always been like that, with me and with my sister: Rough play with Grammie and snuggles and naps with Grampie. Here's the surprise news: Grammie called Mommie YESTERDAY to tell her that they decided they are coming HERE for thanksgiving. Wow! We were nearly packed. We have no food. The house is a mess. I say good luck, Mommie, trying to get this place in order. But we'll have so much fun. We love to be at our house best. Robbie better get that booster seat quick. Have fun today. Love from Maddie and Mommie

Poor Robbie! How long did this episode last? How is he today. Please give him love and kisses from all of us. We love you. Please keep us updated. Love from Maddie, Mommie, Grampie, and Grammie.

Please do make sure you take Robbie to see Dr. Dave and tell us what he says. What did Daddie think it was? I bet that was so scary to see that. I'm glad you guys had a good thanksgiving. We had fun and this morning we had scrambly eggs and bacon and toast. I'm not sure what the plan is for today but it should be interesting. Please tell us how Robbie does with Dr. Dave. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

We're so glad to her that Robbie is doing better. We were very worried about him. Keeping him quiet will be a trick. We fed out dishwasher too and the dishes came out sparkling. Grammie and Grampie will be leaving today so we'll try to catch up on housework and schoolwork. We'd also like to grab a nap. Grammie and Grampie gave me a new toy--a tiger--and we call him Tony. He's grrrrrrrrrreat! Ha ha. I had sweet potatoes, too. Gonna go take a nap. We love you guys,too! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

We had chicken again yesterday but I didn't complain. My grammie and grampie left yesterday morning and I slept most of the day. I don't like the sound of that boy at the park. Please look out for each other and beware of strangers. I had sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving. Yummy. Tony is lots of fun. Grammie also bought me a stocking and I have it on my mantle. Today will be our last day of vacation and on Tuesday Mommie goes to the doctor to have her potential skin cancer dealt with. We hope it's nothing. Grampie has one eye done tomorrow, those darn cataracts. We hope he'll be better quick. Stay warm and enjoy your Sunday. Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Good to hear from you guys! I thought i was gonna be trapped here. My mommie took an extra medicine last night to help her sleep and she just woke up. Her boss called, all worried, because she was worried (she's not mad--she calls Mommie her sister) but she was concerned. I think Mommie is fine but she promised to stay in touch with Margo, her boss. I think she's worried about that dumb procedure tomorrow (not the procedure but the maybe cancer part). Glad you had fun with Clarence and Dino. Grammie left a message that Grampie did well this morning. We'll have to start thinking about decorating. We have your pug ornament on the mantle and two stockings. Have fun and talk to you later. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Tell Daddie not to worry. Between the two of them, Grammie and Grampie have had three eyes done and they both claim it was no big deal. Promise Daddie lots of lovies and snuggles if he gets it done. Mommie goes to the doctor tomorrow but she'll be okay 'cause she has me. Take good care of each other and we send hugs and kisses! P.S. One of your gifts came today (you each get one) for Christmas and we're very excited and can't wait to send your Christmas box. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Grammie is the same way about her eyes--she hates having them messed with. Mommie handles it a little better 'cause she's had contacts for years and years. I don't blame Daddie for getting mad because too many doctors treat us patients like our time isn't as important as theirs. Please tell Daddie that Mommie and I care about him too, and if he's worried he can vent his fear or anger or frustration to Mommie in an email. Mommie has a bandaid on her face and looks dumb and I'm being her nurse. So far, in my duties, I took a nap and jumped on top of her with Tony. I may be fired soon. Don't worry about a present for me. My mommie just likes to buy things, especially for pugs she loves! Take good care of Daddie and give him extra lovies to make him feel better. P.S. Mommie said thanks for the good luck!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Our paws and fingers are crossed for Daddie today. I would be happy to be his nurse but warn him I tend to sleep on the job! Why would you chew Robbie's leg? Way too silly. Be sure to be extra good for Daddie and give him extra lovies from you guys and from us. Keep us updated. Love from Maddie and Mommmie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Poor Daddie. He was ready to get that darn thing done and over with and now he has to wait again. He'll be seeing you clearly very soon. Lovies are just what he needs, especially pug lovies. I bet you guys have TONS of fun playing together. Mean ole dinosaur sounds like fun. When Grammie comes, she plays wild with me. That's why I want a sister. Remember, you're not spoiled--you're loved! When I see those sad dogs on tv I know how lucky I am. We had flurries yesterday but that's it. Stay warm and keep Daddie happy by snuggling. Love from Maddie and Mommie (who has to go to work tomorrow--ha ha!--but only 4 more class meetings then finals!)

We didn't get snow but boy was it cold yesterday. Mommie worked at home yesterday and I napped most of the day. We have to find out if Santa will be at Petsmart again and, if so, will it be a REAL santa and not a 15 year-old-girl. So far, we only have two stockings hung on the fireplace. We have to get on it. The problem is that every year, the end of the semester competes with Christmas and work has to come first. Mommie had to work today. Yuk. I got up with her and ate but then I jumped on the couch. Time for a nap at 5:15! Take care of each other and stay warm. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

It IS cold. I just went outside and there was frost but I went anyway. When I came back in, I kept trying to find a warm spot to lay on. We walked yesterday after work and it was chilly then. Treats don't last long with three hungry boys, I bet. My stocking doesn't have my name but it has a dog and it says "Santa, I've been a good dog." My grammie gave it to me. Stay warm and have fun today. Love from Maddie and Mommie

Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Yesterday was very boring. I napped most of the day and Mommie worked. I went outside a couple of times but mostly I stayed on the couch under my blanket. Maybe today we'll have some fun. Stay warm and take care of each other. All our love from Maddie and Mommie. P.S. I have cabin fever, too, even though we live in a house! Ha ha

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hooray! Christmas tree! We went to petsmart today and I saw lots of people. I even rode in the cart. Then we got pizza! Yummy. We did very well until about 3:00 when Mommie and I got cuddly on the couch and fell asleep. Then she couldn't sleep last night and is tired today. I got up with her this morning and got breakfast and some cheerios. Busy week for Mommie this week so I'll be in charge a LOT! Stay warm and have fun. Post pics of your tree if you can! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hey, we found lots of good stuff at Petsmart, too. I even bought some things (stuffed toys) for little girls we know. It goes to a good cause. I laughed when you said three dog night! Ha ha! Robbie is very curious and wants to meet people. I met children and adults and everyone wanted to kiss me. We still have to wrap our gifts and send them out--including to you guys! We love to give gifts. Mommie has to work again today (department meeting) so I'll be in charge again. Stay warm and cuddle together. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Our Christmas gifts haven't been wrapped yet either, though Mommie has been gathering boxes. It was cold and rainy yesterday so when Mommie came home we played inside. No snow yet, but it may be coming. I had green beans and apricots for snack. MMMMMMMM. I went outside yesterday as far as the front porch and when I felt the rain I ran back inside. I did wake up with Mommie and eat pellies (dog food) and some cheerios this morning. Then I climbed back onto the couch for the day. I may have a tick on my leg so I have to go to the vet after work today. It's on my back leg. Mommie read how to remove a tick but was afraid it would pop out alive and get her so it's off to the vet. Petsmart rocks. I rode the cart and met lots of people. Kiss love to kiss me. Have a good day and stay warm. Love Maddie and Mommie

Turns out it's not a tick but a skin tag. Yay--no bugs. They want Mommie to keep an eye on it. I do have itchy skin and had to get meddies and special shampoo. Guess that means a bath. Santa will be at Petsmart on the weekends and the lady said he is a better Santa than last year's. We'll see. We got snow yesterday as we went to see the vet but there's not much out there. Mommie was hoping she'd have to cancel her meeting today. I met lots of people at Petsmart and one man called me princess and petted me. Then when we we're walking out, he yelled out, "bye, Princess!" People are silly. We think of you guys, too and hope you're having fun and staying warm. Love from Maddie and Mommie

Yeah, no tick but a bath! Ugh. I had to stand in the bathtub while the shampoo stayed on me for 5--10 minutes. Ick. We are gonna try to go to Petsmart tomorrow for our picture with Santa. We're gonna get one for Grammie and Grampie, too. Keep an eye on that bump. You have fun today, too. Stay warm, play hard, nap lots! (This could be our new pug motto!) Love from Maddie and Mommie

I plan to see santa today but I'm not sure what to wear. I'm glad Daddie waited until after Christmas for his eye procedure. Do they have him putting drops in his eyes days in advance? Grampie gets his second eye done on Monday then he's done (except for more drops). Grammie found out the other day thaat the glasses she paid 400.00 for a couple years ago were made wrong. she kept complaining to the doctor and he told her she was wrong. I think a person knows if she can see or not. Sometimes doctors stink. We plan to wrap gifts this weekend and send them out next week. Mommie tried to look for your video but couldn't find it. She'll look again. Stay warm and be good for santa! Love from Maddie and Mommie

Your video was so funny. You guys look so handsome in your Santa photo. We were first in line and there were some loud dogs there. Grampie will be find and we'll be sending Daddie good thoughts when he has his procedure. With all us pugs backing him, nothing can go wrong. Plus I think he said good things happen for good people. We started wrapping yesterday and ran out of tape. Duh, Mommie. The dog park sounds fun, meeting new dogs all the time. I still run outside, even though it's cold and Mommie and I walked after the Santa picture yesterday. Then we both had an accidental nap together. I'm still a bit wild on my meddies and soooooooo hungry. I go back on Tuesday. Stay warm today and have lots of fun. I get Mommie today AND tomorrow since that's reading day. It's supposed to be a day for students to study but all they do is get drunk. Mommie says, who cares, I get the day at home. Love from Maddie and Mommie

Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hey, we wrapped presents yesterday, too. I was a big help. I took the empty paper roll and ran around and around with it then I started to chew it. Mommie is gonna try to go to the post office today but may not make it until tomorrow. Thanks for thinking of Grampie. I'm starting to titrate (I think that means I get lesser and lesser) down from my meddies. I visit the vet tomorrow but I'm not as itchy as I was. Take care of each other and stay warm. Love from Maddie and Mommie

Mommie had such a busy day yesterday but she mailed your box today. I'm not sure when it will get there. I went to the vet and he said my skin looks good. I even lost a pound since last week. I now weight 21.5 pounds down from 25. Yay me! Tell Frankie thanks for holding the box down. Yesterday Mommie fell asleep at 3:00 and slept til 6:00 this morning. Grampie's checkup was excellent too. Thanks for asking. Can't wait till you get your box. Love Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I haven't been scratching but I got up at 6:00 and demanded breakfast. Mommie was not please since she didn't have to get up today for work. I'm short but I'm very long so keeping weight off is tough. I got fruit cocktail for treat. Mmmm. We even walked before I went to the vet. Mommie only has Thursday and Friday for work then she has until Monday to get final grades in. I'll try to help her by pointing out the bad students. Keep en eye out for your box. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

We got a box today! We opened the card and laughed and laughed then remembered we forgot to put your card in the box we sent. We didn't open the presents yet but are sooooooo excited! You guys have been sooooooo good that Santa will bring you lots of stuff. Mommie will get coal--or student papers to grade. She stopped at the store after work and I think she bought me something. I hope it's a new Christmas outfit. I'm gonna sing a song for Grammie and Grampie (Mommie does the words and I move my paws) for Christmas. Grammie keeps teasing me about it. You'll have to let us know when our box arrives! We're very excited for you to get it! Be good and have fun! Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie! P.S. I got carrots for lunch. MMMMMMMMMM

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Yeah, when we saw your card to us we remembered we forgot to put yours in the box so look for it separately. It's similar to yours. I guess great minds do think alike. I'm hoping no one gets coal (except some of Mommie's bad students). She works today and has to get final grades submitted by Monday afternoon. We'll see if she can do it that fast. I'll try to get a video of me singing but Grammie and Grampie aren't good with using the phone to film things and Mommie has to hold me and sing the words while I move my arms around. We'll see what we can do. Is all of your Christmas shopping done yet? We're pretty close. Hope you have a fun day. Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Maybe the box will take longer 'cause it's extra big. We're excited for you to get it! Mommie came straight home from work yesterday at about 10:30 and we napped and napped. I don't think you need to worry about coal--that's something I'M gonna have to worry about! I'm not sure if she has any more shopping to do, but she has lots to wrap. Our dining room table is covered. I got Mommie up at 6:00 this morning (lots of bad words!) so she's awake now and I'm back in bed. That's my way of helping her with her work: get her up! Have a good weekend and we'll talk later! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Those batards! Maybe they stole your box and are playing with it right now! Do big boxes take longer to mail? Sounds like Daddie bought lots and lots of goodies! Be extra good this week. I'm gonna be, just in case. We'll be going to Grammie's and Grampie's for the holiday and Mommie has to decide if she wants to go to Florida with friends of hers in January. I don't think she will. She's very far behind--wrapping, grading, packing. We'll see. Tell Daddie good luck with the doctor and have him keep us updated. I went out on the front porch this morning and when I got to the snow I turned right back around and came back into the house. Ha ha! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

That box better hurry up and get to you guys! I betcha Daddie has toys for you guys. Yay! We didn't get to wrapping but Mommie did get her grades finished and posted online. NOW we can focus on Christmas. If Mommie goes to Florida she will fly, so I go to Grammie and Grampie's house. She took sister on a plane once and said that was the last time. Looooooong story..... Anyways, keep your eyes out for that box. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I think the mail was just going slow because the box to our friends in Orlando just go there yesterday, too. Did you open the gifts or just the box? Was there something in there for everyone? Did everything travel okay? Yesterday Mommie went to the store (more prizes?) and then we walked quickly in the cold. We need to finish wrapping (Mommie did some while I napped on the couch last night) and have to pack. We might have to stay here until Mommie gets her prescriptions so who knows when we'll go to Grammie and Grampie's house. Tell Daddie good luck with his eye and we'll talk later! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Glad you enjoyed the card. The funny thing is that Grammie and Grampie gave us the same card! Mommie found it at Big Lots (I don't know if you have that store or not). We hope Grammie doesn't get run over by a reindeer either. Ha ha! We had rain and rain and rain. Tell Daddie good luck for the doctor's appointment and let us know how it goes. If he's doing what Grammie and Grampie had done, the doctor may schedule him for eye drops and eye washings. Still waiting for medies--paws tapping here, too. Have a good day and we'll talk later. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I'm sorry to hear that Daddie's eye and head hurt. Be sure to be good for him. We keep getting rain and it's cold. I think we're gonna leave tomorrow to go see Grammie and Grampie. It took forever to wrap presents and we're still only partly packed. Mommie will drive carefully (she just yells at people and sticks her middle finger at them) and I'll be strapped into my car seat. Mostly I'll sleep and be ready to play when we arrive. It only takes 1 1/2 hours to get there. Take good care of Daddie and be good so you don't get coal. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

TEN inches! Wow, now Santa can fly the sleigh. Mommie finally got her meds so we are going to Grampie and Grammie's today. Yay. Grampie has to work to help out a man whose daughter has cancer but he'll be home at 3. Who knows what Grammie will be up to--besides waiting for me. Probably something in the kitchen. YUM! Have a good day and we'll talk to you soon! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

So glad you like your prizes! I live mine, too. You guys are my bestest pug friends! I got sick last night and threw up in Grammie and Grampie's bed. Yuck. That means today only chicken and rice. Hope you guys are having fun! Love Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I'm so glad everyone had an excellent Christmas. Thank you guys again for the wonderful toys and treats. I got chicken and rice yesterday and I feel better. Grampie and I are napping and Grammie and Mommie are going shopping. What in the world do they need to buy?! Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Grammie made me better with chicky and rice and Grammie love! That's funny that Robbie thought it was Christmas! Grampie is still on his eyedrops so we understand about Daddie. Grammie's one eye is still a little cloudy but the doctor may be able to laser it. I stayed with Grampie while Mommie and Grammie went shopping. They didn't get anything good. Shopping! Haven't they had enough?! Tell Daddie good luck with his eye (the 28th, right?) and we'll check out your photos! We loved the other ones! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Tell Daddie not to worry because they do it real fast and it doesn't hurt. Robbie can be a little bad until next year. I always break my squeakers. We're glad you like the toys. I love mine and the treats! I can tell Mommie no shopping but she'll go. Ha ha. I wake up early withGrampie and scam about six breakfasts! Tell Daddie we are all sending good thoughts of to him. If he gets scared, think of you boys and that will help him. Keep me us posted on how it goes! Love from Mommie and Maddie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Glad to hear about Daddie. Be sure to be extra good. Does he have to get the other eye done? We are having company for dinner--Mommie's cousin--and he used to have a PUG named Rollo. He's pugless now but can't wait to see ME! There should also be lots of dinner. We had snow. Did you? Stay warm and have fun. Tell Daddie to use his snuggle blanket with you and he'll feel fine in no time. Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Yay! Daddie's eye is good! Pugs are magical! You guys are lucky you got nice weather. We got snow but it didn't stick. My Mommie's cousin (my cousin, too?) and his dad came for dinner. He used to have a pug named Rollo and he got right down on the floor with me and he held me. He was missing Rollo when he saw me and told the me I was his favorite type of dog. He has cats that look like lions called rag dolls and he show pictures. They are very aloof. Ha ha. Grampie is off work so I hope we have fun today! Enjoy your weather. I got a few bath a couple of days ago because I'm getting itchy. Back to the vet I guess. Have fun and play hard. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

What kind of medis do you use for orchids? Grammie is trying some antifungal medicine. Oh dear. Does she think I have a fungus?! I hope Daddie is feeling better. We are still at Grammie's and Grammie's so new years won't be too wild! Since Mommie decided not to go to Florida, there probably won't be too many wild times. Grammie says what happens at Grammie's stays at Grammie's and that means I get extra treats and prizes. I haven't been outside for days. Maybe Mommie will take me to the pet place. Have a happy new year and we'll talk later! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Happy new year! I slept through it with Grammie and Grampie. Mommie somehow woke up a few minutes before midnight. Good thing 'cause she started to get text messages at 12:00. Then she was up til about 3:30. Ugh. I bet you guys looked so handsome in your psu collars. I haven't been outside forever because of rain and snow. Hope you guys have fun today! Happy new year! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

It's funny that Daddie and Mommie were both sick and neither had a wild new year's eve. Mommie slept all day yesterday and all night. She feels a bit better today. Good thing 'cause penn state plays at noon. Go nittney lions. Joe Paterno's wife got thrown out of the campus pool where she's been swimming for years. Crazy. Mommie is glad she didn't go to Florida because she doesn't feel well. We're supposed to have a big storm with lots of snow. Stay warm and have fun! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Glad Daddie is feeling better. Mommie is too. Grampie went to get his eyes checked and Grammie went cause her one eye is still giving her trouble. The doctor may be able to laser it. We couldn't watch psu since it wasn't broadcast here. That sounded suspicious. Good thing. They lost big! Even though we live I Steelers country, Mommie doesn't root for them--or anyone else. We got lots of snow last night and it looks pretty. We have may get more today. I'm getting bored indoors! Are you getting snow? Stay warm and have fun! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Daddie's eyes sound like Grampie's. He has weak glasses still. Grammie had to get another appointment to get her eye fixed. Mommie is getting her haircut so that ought to be funny. Ha ha. Yesterday I got a Popsicle, cheerios, and cheetos. Oops. Gotta go.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Whew! Yesterday got very busy and now we're home! Yay. We missed our house and Mommie has lots to do. I helped my mommie mop Grammie's floor because she spilled cream all over it. YUMMY. You're not bad. I finally met Julia the puggle walking but only for a few minutes. Mommie got all her hair cut off. She was fed up with it and decided it had to go. Every few years she does that and then it grows back. If she decides this is easy to maintain, she may keep it. We'll see. I personally think short hair makes her look older (but don't tell her I said so!) I need a nap after riding in the car and sleeping. Hope you guys are having fun in the sun. Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hooray for Daddie and his eye! We're so glad to hear the good news. It was snowy here so every time I went out to the front porch, I would step across the snow line (except when I saw Little Bit and barked because he's my sworn enemy since the day we moved in!) We still haven't completely unpacked but it is good to be home. Our car needs washed too but it's cold here, though warming up. Hope you guys are having fun and playing hard! Have a great day! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Ha ha! Little Bit is already afraid of me 'cause I took him down in my backyard. When he hears about my three strong and protective brothers, he'll walk on the other side of the street. Ha ha. Yikes--12 thousand dollars is a lot. It makes 800.00 almost okay (I said ALMOST). They sure got that bill out FAST. Mommie says when it comes to money, she's not that kind of doctor either. I kept trying to go outside yesterday but I stopped at the snow line on the porch, then ran on the dry spot behind the furniture on our front porch. I did go on the deck since it's dry and it got warmer yesterday. This morning I finally went out to the backyard. Mommie still hasn't unpacked and I have my paws crossed and am tapping my feet: get to work. She did pay bills and go through all the mail we missed when we were gone. I napped. Hope you guys have a pugtastic weekend! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hooray for visitors. I'm not surprised Denise tried to take you. When my cousin saw me when I was at Grammie and Grampie's, he kept holding me and whispering in my ear, telling what a sweet girl I am. He used to have a pug and I think he wants another one but he has cats now, really fancy ones. We must be on opposite weather because our snow is melting and it's getting warmer. I kept going outside to play in the backyard but I would still come in pretty quick. Keep each other warm if it snows and have fun! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Your Daddie loves you waaaaaaay too much for him to give you away. Mommie sometimes threatens to sell me for a nickel, but when people offer to pay it, she says no. I know you were just trying to help him out with the paperwork. I do the same thing (but our garbage can is in a cabinet!) Pillies, however, are a great place to hide or just hang out under. I think I'm gonna help today by hanging out on the couch. Have fun today! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Oh no, is Grammie okay? What's wrong? Please let us know and we'll send good thoughts her way. It's scary when something like that happens. Keep us posted on how she's doing. Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Poor Grammie. I'm glad that found out what was wrong but I feel terrible that she's so sick. Of course you boys will take good care of Daddie--that's your job. Please send Grammie our love and give Daddie extra attention and love so he doesn't worry. Hugs and kisses to you all from Maddie and Mommie. P.S. We will still worry so keep us updated.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

It rained here yesterday. Mommie was supposed to go to lunch and shopping with some of her friends but it was so cold and miserable she didn't want to leave the house. How is Grammie doing? Are the meds kicking in yet for her? I'm sure you weren't in the way but Daddie has lots on his mind, with Grammie and all. I think I'm gonna lay on my big dog today. Mommie has another lunch invitation but i don't know if she's going. We'll see. Have fun and send our love to Grammie. Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Glad to hear that Grammie is feeling better. Wanting to come home is usually a good sign. You're lucky you got out. We got snow and wind and I'll be stuck in forever. Shots don't sound too good. I got a bath yesterday and I behaved pretty well, even during the hair dryer part. Visitors sound like fun. Did you give them sad faces so they gave you treats? That's what I do. I look sad and turn my head to the side. Try it and let me know if it works. I think I'm going back to bed. Have fun and talk later. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

So glad to hear the good news about Grammie. When she gets home, you can all take turns snuggling with her. Giving three pugs a bath must be a bit tricky. I did good and stood still (mostly) for both the bath and the drying (too loud for me). No going out for me. We had snow and more snow. It's all white and blowy out there. Brrrrrr. I think today will be a lazy day even though there's work to be done. Stay warm and have fun. Love from us to all of you. Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hooray for Grammie and for the good news. It's no fun to be in the hospital and much better to heal with you guys. Work your pug magic and make her feel perfect. It must have been bath time for everyone this week. I'm still inside because of the snow. Guess I gotta get used to being alone and hanging out on the couch when Mommie starts back to work next week. Have fun today and take good care of Grammie! Love from Maddie and Mommie!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Glad to hear Grammie is doing well. I wonder if she will throw her nurse out like my Grammie did. Sounds like you guys all pitched in and helped. If only us pugs could cook. Daddie must be excited about his glasses and I don't blame him. He probably wants to keep an eye on what you guys are up to. When I'm boss next week, I'll spend the days in bed or on the couch. Have fun today and stay warm. Our snow is melting--yay! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Rain, rain, rain and cold, cold, cold. Our weather has been so yucky and I'm getting bored and restless. Glad Grammie likes her nurse and hasn't thrown him out yet. I bet she doesn't like getting poked by Daddie, though. Sounds bad to me. We may get ghettis today but time will tell. Mommie never decides until the last minute. Looks like a good day for me to nap. Have fun and be good. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Maybe his computer is too cold and doesn't want to work. We had terrible wind yesterday. It sounded like the roof was gonna blow off. Our snow is gone. You better be good when the physical therapist comes because she might make you do EXERCISES. Chance got a workout here yesterday. He's also very good to sleep on. I can't play evil twin unless I get Chance to be the twin. I laid around Mommie's neck the other day but her shoulder is sore. I think Grammie has to have part of one eye lazered. She sent me a card 'cause she misses me and I like to smell cards. Have fun today and stay warm. Love from us girls to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

The wind has stopped and the roof is okay. It's only a couple of years old and Mommie made sure to check it in the attic. When Daddie gets his glasses, don't let them charge him for a bunch of extra stuff, like special coatings, etc. They did that to my Grammie a few years back and she could never see from the glasses and the doctor wouldn't believe her. She ended up wearing ones from the dollar store--they were the only ones that worked. Tell Daddie to bark loud at those people who try to rip us off. Mommie has a luncheon today so I may score some good Italian food unless she eats it all. Paws crossed! Good luck to Daddie. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Glad to hear Daddie got his glasses. Chicky licky is one of my favorites and I hope you got lots. I got some ghetties from Mommie's lunch, which we ate for dinner. We got snow--not a lot--but enough that I won't go outside. Mommie woke up with a migraine and I'm gonna try to be good today. Keep warm and have fun! Love from us girls to you guys!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Yesterday was COLD and we had a bad ice storm. I refuse to step out in the snow or cold. Having people come over sounds like lots of fun. Nurses can be so nice. The Chance dog is a good one to sleep on. He's like a pillow AND a friend. Accidental naps are the best. We will probably have a quiet weekend. Have fun and stay warm. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Now we're worried about Grammie and Daddie. What's wrong? Of course Daddie will always take good care of you so don't worry about that. You sound kinda depressed. Remember that we're here for you. Try to be good and it will get better. Or else, send us a note and we'll make you feel better. Think of my goofy face and you'll all laugh and laugh. Take care of each other. Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Glad to hear things are going a bit better. Mommie had to go to work today but I'm nice and snugly in my bed. She heard a funny noise in her car when she hits the accelerator and is worrying about that. The car is only 2008 (for us that's new--we only get new cars when our old ones die). Hope it's nothing. But why couldn't it make noise when she was home to fix it? If I don't hear from you, at least I know you are okay. Kiss everyone for us! Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hope everyone is doing better. Paws crossed that the computer gets fixed and everyone is feeling better. Mommie started back to school and we played when she came home. We feel asleep in front of the tv and then snuggled all night. Today she gets to work at home. Yay. Let us know when the computer is fixed. Hugs to everyone! Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Uh-oh. Your computer must still be getting worked on. We're back to a work schedule around here and that means plenty of sleep for me and plenty of work for Mommie. Glad it's not the other way around. Not much to report on except I went outside yesterday and tracked mud onto the couch. Our couch is about 10 years old and even though she likes the couch, Mommie just laughed and washed my paws. Whew. How is Grammie? How is Daddie? Be sure to be on good behavior for them. Have fun together and stay warm. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Great news about the computer but HORRIBLE news about Grammie. You made me cry when you said Robbie keeps looking for her. Have they determined anything new about what's wrong and esp how to help her? Don't make me come there and bite someone. I will for Grammie and I'll get my mommie to YELL and she can me MEAN (not to us pugs but to people!) Please give Daddie a great big hug from us and be especially good for him. His job right now is very difficult. Tell Daddie if he needs to vent (Mommie says he'll know what that means) to send her a message. She has to go to work today (we thought she could work at home) because she has a deadline coming up next week that she forgot about. Ooooops. Anyway, please take care of each other. Love and hugs to you and the boys plus to Grammie and Daddie.

Send Grammie our love. Is she feeling any better? Mommie has been going crazy this week, trying to meet a deadline she forgot about. Ugh. How are Daddie's new glasses doing? Do they finally work? Mommie's been wearing her glasses a lot, which means she's working a lot. I have a kind of itchy rash so I may have to go back to the doctor. Yucko. Hope you guys are being good. Take good care of each other and kisses from us to all of you! Maddie and Mommie

It sounds like your Grammie is making progress. Good thing you guys are responsible and can hold down the fort. Yelling is a good sign. We don't really know what's wrong with our Grammie. She had a bad night and her arm was acting funny and I think they were afraid she had a stroke. She didn't but they can't figure out what's wrong with her. Grammie said for us not to come because if she knows I'm in town and she can't see me she'll go crazy. Mommie said we'd put me in a baby stroller and cover me in blankets and sneak me into the hospital. We're waiting for Grammie to call 'cause Mommie doesn't want to disturb her. Mommie has plenty of work to do but she still found time to give me a bath yesterday. I kind of enjoyed the warm water. Hope you guys have a good day. We love you all! Hugs and kisses from Mommie and me.

Not Daddie now! Oh my. What's going on? He probably did get it in the hospital. Tell him to take lots of vitamin c for immunity. Grammie went home yesterday but they still don't know what was wrong. Mommie is still worried because they didn't find anything out. When will you Grammie come home? I bet you miss her. Today will be another working day. Be good and have fun. Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie.

Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

This is not a good time for anyone, it seems. Everyone's sick and Mommie's been working all weekend and she's still behind. At least Grammie is home. Mommie still wants to know what was wrong with her. It will be another busy week. I went outside yesterday but it was cold. This morning we found snow so I stayed in and ate my breakfast and my cheerios and got back on the couch. I'd like to get out for a good run but it's too yucky. I did a zoomie when sharkie the vacuum came out the other day--he scares me when he's running, but I sniff him when he's turned off. Ha ha. I'm just trying to be friendly. Have fun and take care of each other. Give our love to Grammie and Daddie, too. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Sometimes blowing up is all you can do. Good for Daddie. Grammie did the same thing at the hospital with one of the nurses. I'm glad your Grammie is feeling better. My Grammie said to tell her to get well and feel better soon. I'm getting tired of rude people. Mommie has a meeting today and needs to finalize her letter for the promotion committee then she'll be ready to work on ANOTHER file. Eeeek. Her assistant, Brandi, is having her birthday tomorrow. I hope someone brings me some cake home. I'll just think really hard: cake, cake, cake.... I haven't seen any of my neighbor friends. Mommie is mad 'cause our toilet upstairs won't flush and she can't fix it. Ugh. Maybe we'll call Grampie. We're already looking for the weekend. Have fun and play hard! Love to you all from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hooray for me! I got to go out for a walk yesterday. It was like springtime. Mommie isn't going up for promotion this year (she went up last year when she went up for tenure. She got tenure (permanence) but not a promotion). She's chairing the promotion committee and the letter's due today and members are fighting and it's up to her to make everything good. Ugho. I don't know if there will be cake or cookies or anything 'cause Mommie didn't buy anything except a present for Miss Brandy--a box of candy, a wineglass, and a card. Mommie says she was 21 once but I don't know what that means. The toilet will flush but won't drain. If Mommie let's it sit long enough, the water will drain out. She wants to ask Grampie but he's dealing with Grammie and she doesn't want him to worry about anything else right now. We just go downstairs and use that bathroom. Grammie was almost taken back to the hospital yesterday. How is your Grammie? My Grammie asked about her. I'll keep you posted on the cake but things aren't looking too good right now. All our love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Ha ha ha! Your Grammie sounds like MY Grammie! They are both not to be messed with. What happened? My Grammie almost got taken back to the hospital but she didn't. Today may be the day she sees her doctor. I heard a rumor there were doughnuts but I didn't see any. I forgive Mommie, though, because she had worries yesterday until she finally got the promotion dossiers taken to the library (her co-worker offered to do it for her--it took a dolly to carry them!) and she walked across campus to hand deliver the letters. YAY! Now two weeks for a tenure dossier deadline. Mommie used the plunger and the toilet is now working again. We even got a walk yesterday. All my paws are crossed for both our Grammies! I kinda hope your Grammie hits someone else! Hee hee! Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hooray! Grammie is home. Kiss her for us. We're glad she punched that smarty pants know it all girl. You grammie is like my grammie--don't mess with 'em! Mommie wishes she could punch students sometimes. Wednesday one boy was so rude. He took her class last term, so why didn't he take another class? Anyway, Mommie asked them to pretend they were writng a paper about why English is their favorite class (joke, ha ha) and this guy raises his hand and say, "it'll be a stretch for me to say this but because the teacher is so intelligent." Everyone went ooooo and one girl (who really likes Mommie) said, "Dude, what's your problem?" Mommie should have thrown him out because she has a "civility clause" in the syllabus that says everyone must respect everyone. Sometimes people ask to be punched, I swear. There was no doughnut or cake and Mommie worked all day yesterday. Now that the weekend is here, she's home sick from work. Too much stress and overtime this last week. Of course. My grammie went to the doctor and he said the problem isn't her heart but may be a pulled muscle. Hmmmmm. Sounds suspect to me, but at least it's not her heart. Hope you guys are enjoying having Grammie back. Send her our love and hugs and kisses! Same for all you guys and Daddie, too! Love from Maddie and Mommie.

Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Brrrrr. I guess Phil was right about winter. Hope you have lots of supplies and goodies. Good thing Grammie got home in time. Daddie and Mommie are probably sick because they both have too many worries and have been doing lots of extra stuff. It's up to us pugs to make them feel better. Mommie agrees about the weird students but she just focuses on the good ones. I think I'm going to take a nap. Have fun today and stay warm. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I think we got your snow. It stuck on the grass but not on the road or the driveway. I hope it melts today although that will just make mud. How are Grammie and Daddie feeling? I've seen lots of talk about the puppy bowl. I saw it the last couple of years. I especially like when a pug puppy plays. I heard a rumor I may be getting another bath to relieve my itchies so I'm gonna lay low and hope Mommie forgets. Have fun today! Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

No bath for me. I guess I laid low and didn't call any attention to myself. Glad to hear about Grammie feeling better but sad to hear Daddie is feeling bad. That's funny and sad about Frankie in the tub. How did he get into it? My sister used to jump OUT of the tub but I can't do that (or at least I never tried.) Last time I just sat down and enjoyed the warm water. Our snow is melted and it should warm up a bit today. Have a fun day and we'll talk later. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I wish that everyone would be feeling better again. Keep an eye on Daddie so that he gets well and stays well. Is there leftover pizza for today? Ha ha. Mommie is dealing with a nasty student and is very mad that she has to waste time on it. The Union president met with her and told her it the student's claim was all "bullshit" but they still have to all meet on Thursday with the mucky mucks. Today will be a work at home today but maybe I'll get a walk like I did yesterday. Tell Daddie to feel better. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Sorry for not talking with you yesterday. Mommie is in the middle of this mess with a student and she has to meet today to defend herself! What? These kids claim anything they want and she has to prove them wrong. This world is messed up. At least she has the union president to speak for her and defend her. I'm afraid her head might explode. Anyway, we had snow yesterday and I had to stay in but we went to bed early anyway 'cause Mommie has a meeting at 7:00, 9:00 (the bad one), and 11:00. I hope she can come home early and with good news. I agree that toys aren't enough. Keep an eye on your mailbox and you may find a surprise! Keep your paws crossed for Mommie today. Glad Daddie is feeling better. How is Grammie? Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Oh no! This is so terrible. Pneumonia AND a heart problem. My grammie has a bad heart and sometimes gets pneumonia. How is he feeling now? Daddie will get well 'cause he has you guys and we won't let anything happen. You must have been frightened if you didn't want dinner. Are you okay now? Please tell him if he needs to talk, email. Mommie's getting a new email and she'll send it to Daddie and explain what's been going on at school. Everything is okay now. Did you get any mail? That might cheer you up. Keep us posted and give Daddie lots and hugs and kisses. Paws crossed for Daddie. Tell him to make that doctor make him better. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

The doctor will fix Daddie's heart. We know it's a good one 'cause it's full of love for you puggies so it can be made better. Be sure you boys are good medicine and give him good lovies and snugglies. My grammie has had a bad heart for years and she's still chasing after me. We will be thinking good thoughts for Daddie and sending love and good wishes his way. Keep us updated. We're stuck in by a big snowstorm so we should be around the house today. Love from Maddie and Mommie (and special hugs and get-well kisses for Daddie!)

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

We've had snow all weekend long. The snow blew all the way up to our front door, even though our front porch is mostly protected by the roof. Anyway, I think we'll be snowbound again today. So glad you got the card. We were afraid it wouldn't get to you by Valentine's Day. Be sure to be extra good and take care of Daddie. Tell him if he doesn't like water, he can get those low-cal/no cal mixes. Usually you just pour one packet into a bottle of water. That's how we get Grammie to drink more. Summer sounds good to me. Talk to you soon and take good care of Daddie. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I miss my walks, too. We had so much snow and it got so cold. It was 13 this morning. I'm glad I could stay home under the blankets--let Mommie go out and earn bank, right? How is Daddie feeling? Any better? Make sure he's getting enough rest and that you give him lots of pug loves. Mommie can't use pugspot at work anymore (well, she's afraid if she logs into it, she'll get in trouble.) This week seems to be better. Hope you guys are getting less bored. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Happy Valentine's Day! Sorry to hear you don't feel well. I think maybe you've been worrying too much about Daddie and maybe that's what upset your stomach. You're lucky you got outside. We still have tons of snow and I stepped one paw out this morning and stepped right back into the house. Brrrrrrr. Mommie is working at home today. Have a good day and stay warm! Love from Maddie and Mommie! Happy Valentine's Day!

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Mommie worked so long yesterday that she didn't even have time to get on pugspot. She didn't get home to me until 4:00 and then she was sooooo tired. I paid her back by waking her up today at 5:00 for breakfast. She went back to bed since she didn't have to wake up today. Mommie doesn't have a problem with birds at work 'cause she parks in the parking garage. She does hear them when she walks to her office. There's a river right next to CAL (one of the three rivers from Pittsburgh) and I think it brings the birds around. Glad to hear Grammie is doing fine and anxious for Daddie to get to the doctor and get some solutions and answers. Just yesterday my mommie told me my chin is getting gray, probably because my birthday is coming up on March 2 and I'll be FOUR on the paw. Then later that month Mommie will have a birthday--haha! I guess she's not a puppy anymore! Hope you get warm weather and some walks. Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I won't be celebrating my birthday since I don't want to get any older. If I stay a puppy, then I never have to be good. Ha ha. Glad to hear that Grammie is getting the right medis and still anxious to hear about Daddie and his doctor's appointment. Don't make my mommie come and yell at the doctor. She's good at that. It's funny--you got subway and I got arbys! Yay. Hope you're having a good day. We're gonna relax--FINALLY! Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

When Mommie left Arbys, she saw a beggar on the side of the road by the stop light. She gave him some change (all she had in the car 'cause she never has cash) and it was very sad. She came home and didn't even want to eat. She said if he scammed her, he has to live with himself and her heart was in the right place. I think that fact that he had a dog is what got her. I got some of the arbys but it was only okay this time. I can stop birthdays 'cause I still get treats and toys. I heard something about Grammie getting me a marshmallow in the shape of an ice cream cone and a toy. I can't wait. Glad you got a walk. I got outside but no official walk. I got up at 6 o'clock today and my mommie was not happy. I suspect a nap is in our future. Have a fun day. Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Mommie's never done it before either. She said there was just something so beaten and sad about this man. I'm getting a toy from Grammie and Grampie but in the same phone call, Grammie told Mommie that we should donate some of my toys to the shelter. I like that idea because some poor doggie who's sad and alone in a shelter can cuddle with a toy at night and not feel so alone. Glad to hear that Hootie isn't hiding anymore. Mommie still laughs about that pair of boots she has that Daddie said look like Hootie! That's hilarious. I saw the puppies today from my backyard. They went to their fence corner and I went to mine. They bard and wag and I just look at them. Hope you have a pleasant Sunday. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

The puppies are so funny because they bark and wag at the same time. Mommie saw Trixie and Maxie's mommie and talked for a long time. Mommie was telling her my latest antics. If I want her attention, I knock the cell phone on the floor and look at her to say, hey, I want attention. Good luck at the vet's. Mommie has a dr. appointment tomorrow and may miss work if the appt. doesn't end quickly. We always discover toys and chewies in the bed and couches. That's what keeps life fun--hidden surprises. Have a good day. Love from Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I jump all over for attention. I think there are different kinds of barks: barks with wags are usually happy and friendly barks, like the dog saying, "hey, what's up? Haven't seen ya in a while!" I agree that we don't always help when we think we are, especially in the cleaning area. Accidental naps come in handy and I'm hoping for one today. I'll be in charge while Mommie's gone so a nap is definitely in order. She has to have a mammogram and I thought that meant she was gonna see Grammie and I wanted to go. Imagine me in a hospital. I'd put on a nurse's cap and fit right in. Ha ha. I got confused. Have a good day. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

You mean all you do it stare for supper? You guys are so good. I make a ruckus when I'm hungry, which is always. I will scratch my bowl and if I'm eating out of the free-standing bowl instead of my feeder, I will bash that ceramic bowl all over the floor. You lucked out on the vet thing. I got to go outside in the yard yesterday and this morning. We had tons of sniffies, too. Mommie saw on t.v. one time that dogs will stare off into space because they see things we don't. I don't know if you believe in that stuff, but Mommie does 'cause she's had some strange things happen. Maybe it was an angel or maybe my sister Rosie stopped by for a visit. Hope you have a good day. Mommie has papers to grade so she'll be cranky. Ha ha! Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hooray! It's Friday and time to relax. We are having icky cold weather and rain and maybe snow. Are you getting cabin fever like I am? Mommie says she would rather I spin and whine instead of bash my food bowl around. The good news is that Grammie and Grampie might come visit next weekend for my birthday! Yay good food and lots of attention (though I suspect Mommie's gonna make Grampie help her cut my nails with the trimmer. Ick.) I wish I could grade papers but I'll do my part by trying to be good. Have a fun night. Love Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Oh no. We had a big snowstorm and I just tried to go outside but turned right back around. It was so blowy last night that I could feel the wind shake the house. We stayed bundled up. I better be having a party but I suppose if I do, they'll make me wear a dumb hat. Oh well. Time to grade papers and nap. Hope you guys have a good day. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Yup, got your message. We had melting snow yesterday so it was terribly muddy. The only good part of wearing a hat is getting treats. You guys are lucky you got to go out for a walk. I may never get out of this house. I wonder what went wrong when you tried to post. Mommie's computer at?work has her completely locked up but other people can log. Who knows what's going on with these crazy machines? We have to try to get some work done today, especially cleaning the house. Yuck. Hope you get outside again today. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I wonder what's going on with pugspot. I haven't had any problems yet but you can always write to us on fb or email. It's supposed to get warm by the end of the week--63! Wow. I got a bath yesterday but I have to get ready for Grammie and Grampie and for my birthday. Mommie had cupcakes at work b/c her assistant teacher brought them in. Yum but I didn't get one. I'll get one for my birthday. Enjoy the outdoors! Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

It was very windy here, too, especially last night. Our porch swing blew across our deck and it's fairly heavy. I'm ready for spring already. It's a good thing that Daddie has all three of you to take care of Grammie and the house. You don't have to send me a card. I wish you could be here to share some treats with me and help me celebrate. You would love my Grammie--sometimes I call her Grammie Whammie 'cause she's a little bit wild. Grampie is my napping partner and Grammie is the one who plays toys with me. Stay warm and have fun with each other. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

My birthday is officially on Friday and I think that's when Grammie and Grampie are gonna drive down. Mommie has work Friday but she's done by 12:00 and can come right home. Grampie probably has to work. Mommie was up sick last night with a migraine and is worn out. We have rain today (yuck) but at least Mommie is home. She wants to sleep but has papers to grade. We will take pictures, especially if I get a cupcake and a hat. Have a fun day! Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Grampie decided to work today so he and Grammie can come visit on Friday morning. That means I won't have to spend the morning alone. Mommie will go to work and Grammie and Grampie will already be there spoiling me by the time she gets home. We can start to party early. Mostly the migraine seems to be gone but as soon as we think that then it comes back. She did get papers graded and will get more on Monday but that means a free weekend. Yay. After next Friday it will be spring break. Hooray. We need it. We had rain, rain,, rain but it may get nice tomorrow. Yay. Walk time with Grammie! Have a good day and have lots of fun. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hooray for me and my birthday. Grammie and Grampie came early and walked me and we played. I'm napping now and we'll have the party later. I already got some toys and there are treats waiting. We might get pizza for dinner. Yummy. Glad you guys got pupcakes. We can celebrate together even though we live far away. Hope you have a fun day. Love from Maddie and Mommie and Grampie and Grammie. P.S. we love the card and Mommie laughed and laughed.....

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I had an excellent birthday. Grammie and Grampie went to church so Mommie is trying to get caught up on messages. A new mattress is a good idea. We have a really firm one that's great for backaches b/c it has a lot of support. Grammie did sneak me into the lobby of Home Depot b/c it was too cold and windy for a walk. I think Grammie and Grampie will leave fairly early today and then the fun ends. I hope you guys are having a good weekend. Everyone loves the card with hair "pugs!" Ha ha. Talk to you later. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Poor Daddie! Be certain to take care of him and make him eat and drink. If he doesn't like water, he can add special flavoring to it. That's what Mommie makes Grammie do to get her to drink. Be sure to help Daddie break in the new bed and pillies. That's important. I was good yesterday but today I've been sleeping all day and I'm a bit wild now that Mommie is home. I'm being careful with my new toys. Have a fun day and talk to you soon. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

We just put in stuff like crystal light and propel. Mommie buys the little packets and one packet fills a bottle of water or two cups of water. They aren't very strong and just give the water a bit of flavor. So sorry to hear Daddie got sick on the Mexican food. That can be some strong stuff. Is he feeling better today? Doctors never call back, esp. when they don't have answers. I like to lay by the sliding glass doors when the sun is out. Take good care of Daddie today and give him extra lovies. Love and hugs from Maddie and Mommie. P.S. Mommie will be grading papers so I'll try to help.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Dear Boys, I am so sad to hear you guys being so sad and I'm also sad for Daddie. Does he HAVE to go to the hospital? Who will take care of you? What is the doctor saying about Daddie? We need some answers and will have trouble sleeping. We just sent you boys a card to make you laugh and now we want to cry. We love all of you and Daddie, too. He's a good friend to Mommie. If you need to talk or if Daddie does, send us a message or email. Love, hugs, and kisses that you ALL feel better soon. Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

We've been worrying about all of you since we talked yesterday. Are things getting any better? Do you have any updates for us? What does the doctor say? Please let us know what's going on. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hi Robin, what happened? Was it a heart attack? Is there anything I can do? I knew something bad happened when he hadn't answered his postings. Thank you soooo much for contacting me. Even though we never met, your dad and I have become close friends who worry about each other. Please take good care of him and send him our love. Karen and Maddie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Is there a good time to phone him? I know when my mother was hospitalized, I was afraid of disturbing her. Or will he have his phone turned off if he's unable to talk? Hope all is getting better.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Hi Robin, I called him yesterday because I was so worried. Thanks for giving me the number. I don't know how he usually sounds (we've only spoken via computer before) but as soon as I told him who it was, he seemed to perk right up. He sounded pretty good, even asked about Maddie, his girl. Thanks again for keeping me updated and let me know if I can do anything for any of you. Love from Karen and Maddie. P.S. give Pugsly special hugs. I understand he's having trouble without your dad around.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Thanks for the update Robin. I haven't been able to get into pugspot and leave a message but we're still thinking of your dad. Let us know if we can do anything to help.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

HOORAY! We are SO glad to hear the fabulous news! I bet you gave him a royal welcoming. We sent you a card ages ago, before he got sick, so the timing is perfect. Happy St. Patrick's Day and enjoy each other! We love you all! Maddie and Mommie

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

I bet that was the best night's sleep ever. Glad Daddie is finally getting some good sleep. I am feeling better because I ran around all day yesterday. Tomorrow Mommie has to go to work again and that will be yucky. I wish I could go. The kids always ask about me and if she can bring me in. I would love it and so would they but some people are afraid of me. Really? Hope you have a good rest of the day. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

So glad to hear things are getting better. Mommie is afraid to walk me b/c the last time she did, I threw up. She does let me go out into the yard and play then I come to the door when I want in. I like to visit our daffodils, which seem to have bloomed overnight. I've been laying by the deck a lot. I love the great weather. We are in the 70s with record highs. Yay. We all have spring fever. Be sure to be patient with Daddie and give him lots and lots of lovies. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s
Madison Rose (over 5 years ago)

Be sure that Daddie is taking it easy. We are having beautiful weather and enjoying every minute of it. We thought my skin was getting better but last night I scratched and bit myself all night. We see the vet next week and are getting frustrated. Today Mommie can work at home so we can spend the day together. Yay! Have fun, be good, and take good care of Daddie! Love from Maddie and Mommie.

1be64dcc482a0049_s

Mommie says she's waiting for one more week with me on the meds. If the doctor can't do any better, she's gonna find me a new vet. Glad to hear you go visitors, both 4 legged and 2 legged. Mommie's been busy, busy, busy but the weather has been so perfect that she lets me lay by the sliding glass door when she's at work and when she's home, she lets me go outside anytime I want, even if I just came in. I like to smell our daffodils and check out the neighbors. Daddie will feel better soon because we all have paws crossed for him and are sending him good thoughts. I gave Mommie a real hug on her birthday and that was my gift to her. Plus I was good. Talk to you later. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

My paws are looking much better and I'm getting my medis with cheese. I'm still mostly only eating pellies. I go back to the vet on Thursday. I still haven't ordered the special new food and I still seem to be improving. sometimes I think these places just try to sell, sell, sell. Don't get Mommie started on it. Have you been taking extra special good care of Daddie? We worry about you all and want everyone healthy and happy. No plans yet but I know we need to relax. Tony sounds like a silly boy, poking his face in the fence. He seems like a nosey neighbor or maybe he just wants to say hello. Have an excellent day. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

That's why Mommie hasn't ordered it yet. Mommie thinks I get allergies from when I go outside cause I come in with a runny nose and runny eyes. I spit plain pills out or let them melt and drool them out. Easier to use cheese. We got a call that our new furniture is in and we have to try to make room for it since it came early. They said 3--6 weeks and it was only 1 week. Grampie has a hernia again so we don't want him involved. Somehow we have to get our now furniture downstairs. Maybe we can get some students to help. First, though, we have to clear the clutter from the room where the new bed is because the new mattress is coming. I'm gonna be so spoiled. How has Daddie been feeling? Are you taking good care of him? Any more appearances from Tony? Our 80 degree weather went away and we got rain for the weekend. We are gonna still have fun anyway. Have a good weekend and take care of Daddie. Did you get our postcard? We sent 2. Love from Maddie and Mommie.

I'm hoping they are outside allergies. My paws look much better and I have to go to the vet Thurs. since that will be two weeks on medis. Our mattress and living room furniture will be delivered Wednesday morning. Grammie and Grampie will be coming to help Mommie with it and she'll be at work but they aren't sure which day they are coming, either Monday or Tuesday. Grampie gave his two weeks notice and will finally retire. He got ANOTHER hernia so we don't want him to keep pushing himself. He has a doctor appointment Thursday. Mommie says he needs to do what his heart tells him and if he's too tired, he has to quit. He has worked FOREVER and is going to be 76 in June. He's worked his whole life and is finally slowing down. The good news is they can come visit me more often. Grammie says "what happens at Grammie's stays at Grammie's." If only Mommie knew all the treats I get when she's not around! Sounds like you guys had a good day. Our daffodils our out completely but it will be getting cold again. Yuck. Make sure you take good care of Daddie and have a fun day. Love from US!

Poor Robbie. Sometimes I go outside and I have to sit patiently by the door to be let in. Back when I was a baby, my mommie was working on "stay" with me so one day Grammie told me to stay at the bottom of her basement steps. She forgot about me and found me 10 minutes later, still sitting in the dark. It got cold again and Mommie hasn't been feeling well. I have NO idea why people think we bite. We are like fat cuddle buddies. We have a sign on our fence that says to close the gate because of the dog (that's ME!) The good news is Grammie and Grampie are coming today. I'm gonna rest up now so I'm full of energy when they get here. They haven't even left yet. Have you been taking care of Daddie? How has he been feeling? Did you get our postcards yet? Love from Maddie and Mommie.
