Yappy Barkday M+E

IMG_1790

January, a month that holds everypuggy’s birthday in this family. Our oldest, Mavis Odessa, is turning two-years-old on January 21st, while our little beeb, Eleven Mauvé just turned one on January 9th! Time has flown by so quickly! I can’t believe we have two adults now. I swear I blinked and they aged overnight. Watching Eleven blossom into her vocal, feisty, but oh-so-anxious little personality has brought us such joy, along with seeing how Mave has adjusted to having to share the limelight with her new sister.

Mavis

Loves: Bones, nylabones, her stuffed pug, drinking “human tea” (aka bath water while we’re in it), going on walkies, taking car rides to anywhere, zoomie chase, sunbathing, full-body stretches, meeting new people

Hates: bubblewrap, the accented “P” sound, especially in the word Pinocchio, having her nails done, getting her teeth cleaned, being crated for any reason, going to the bathroom when her parents need her to go in a quickly manner

Eleven

Loves: chewing, chewing, chewing, “yelling” at her mom + dad, constant attention, biting sister’s face, trying to hump sister, nylabones, tug-of-war, staying home

Hates: despises having her nails done, going on car rides, being away from home, not having us around constantly, the electric toothbrush, meeting new people

We wanted to throw our first barkday pawrty (warning: there are a lot of hidden dog puns in this post) with some of our pug pals we’ve met on #PugChat and through Austin Pug Rescue events. After careful planning on twitter we headed to Yard Bar in Austin, Texas — a unique little bar and dog park that has locals barking mad! Our “sweet-themed” party included a donut-print tablecloth, valentine cupcakes and cookies, pink balloons, and birthday treats for M, E, and their guests from Claudia’s Canine Bakery. Our guests included the lovely Spike and Zira, our newest pug friends Baxter and Atticus and their fabulous moms! After grabbing a few treats and some lunch, we let the fun begin and went inside the dog park! The girls had such a great time and were even joined by a few King Cavalier Spaniels and other small dogs in the yard. M + E got to pick out their own gifts at PetSmart – rabbit chews, tsum-tsum stuffies (Nemo + Cheshire), birthday outfits (crowns, bandanas, + skirts) and a pup-pie! We also got our barkbox gift (prize for participating in #PugChat) from Hamilton + Rufus that we opened at the park and shared with our furrends!

It was the perfect get together and I am pleased how the day went. Despite it being a bit chilly and having a horrible toothache, the girls enjoyed their treats, toys, friends, and playtime!

Here’s to next year!

Dog Vlog

Hello lovely followers and new readers! As most of you know I have two lovely little pug princesses that are a big part of my crazy life. I’ve been trying to keep my youtube channel somewhat updated with their troublesome adventures, therefore below, I have included two videos from the past month!

The first one is a look into the first week I brought Eleven “home” to Grandma’s house to get acquainted with Mavis and myself. This time happened to fall while Caleb was off in California for training, so it was an all girls adventure in bringing this tiny soul into our lives. Mavis and Eleven have been best friends ever since meeting and they constantly play back and forth.

The second little clip is from Mae’s first time “home alone,” while Caleb and I took a couple of hours to do errands. What a sad little girl she was. While Eleven was confined to her crate, Mavis took her “freedom” aimlessly roaming around in a confused state of solidarity.

I hope you enjoy the videos above and if you would like to subscribe to our youtube channel, we would love that (unfortunately we can’t even name our channel until we have 100 followers! Okay youtube this is one of the most stupid official rules!)!
