Celebrity Look-a-likes

Duke and I have a couple of outstanding tags we need to address, and since we are lazy dogs, we thought we would address the easiest one first. But don't worry Ronin and Nico, we'll get to your tag in our next post.

Our best buddy Winston tagged us to post a picture of our celebrity look-a-likes. Duke's was pretty obvious.....

It could only be........Gene Simmons of the rock group Kiss. Besides the obvious similarity, they both have black hair (I'm not so sure if Gene's is natural though) and they both think they are ladies men.

Mine was even easier.....

The late Princess Diana. She was blonde and so am I. And everybody always tells me that I am a princess too. Not to mention the fact that we both dress so very elegantly.

I could also mention the fact that Princess Diana got stuck living with a dork for most of her life and so did I, but I didn't want to make Duke feel bad. So I'll just leave that part out.

OK, now it's our turn to tag some doggies. We are gonna tag Rocco, Winston & Sela, and anybody else who hasn't been tagged yet. Let's see them celebrity look-a-likes guys!

Taking It Easy

Wow, I can't believe it's been almost a week since our last post. Time sure does fly when you are sitting around doing nothing. Actually, the lack of posts was not our fault. Dad was locked in the computer room all weekend working on some "top secret" project, and he wouldn't let us in. He really uses those opposable thumbs to his advantage.

But anyway, I just wanted to check in and give everybody a brief update on Gidget. She has been taking it easy all weekend. Mom & Dad won't even let her jump on and off the couch by herself. And she does seem to be doing better. I've only noticed her limping one time since she went to the vet, and she is pretty confident that she will not need surgery. Whatever she decides, I just hope it gets fixed quick so I can get my playmate back. And now that we know what the symptoms are, it's pretty obvious that she has had this problem for quite some time. She has always done the little leg shake when she gets going, and I always thought it was just because she was weird. Now we know it was most likely due to her Luxtable Plantation thingy. Or whatever it's called. So anyway, we're just going to keep taking it easy for a while, and we'll know more next week when she goes back to the vet.

On another note, we realize that we have been tagged by multiple doggies, and we will address that on our next post. If Dad ever lets us back in the computer room that is. And last but definitely not least, we want to give a big shoutout to our Grandma, who turns 75 tomorrow.

Luxation Of The Patella

What the heck is a patella? Or a luxation, for that matter? I have never heard of either of those things, but apparently, that is what's wrong with my leg.

I have a luxation of the patella on my right rear leg. Dr. Bruhn (who I think just happens to be sweet on me) told my Daddy that in a human it would be like having a dislocated kneecap, except it keeps snapping in and out of place. I might need surgery, but Dr. Bruhn said it could get better on it's own, so we should wait a couple weeks and then have it re-checked. Personally, I think he just wants to see me again.

So in the meantime, I have some anti-inflammatory pills to take, and I'm not supposed to run around at all for the next two weeks. Duke is pissed. He thinks I'm doing it on purpose just to torture him and deprive him of his playtime. I wish that were the case, but unfortunately I'm under Doctors orders to be pretty much confined to the couch for a while. I just hope I don't have to have surgery. I've had it before, and it is no fun at all. So if Dr. Bruhn says I need to rest, then that's what I'm going to do. If you need me, I'll be laying in the recliner with Mommy.

Poor Gidgey

It wasn't my fault. Really. Gidget and I were just playing like we always do, chasing each other around the house. We were having great fun, until suddenly Gidget yelped. You probably know the sound, it's the one that makes pug people cringe as soon as they hear it. So anyway, she yelped a couple times and then she limped under the kitchen table. I wanted to keep playing, but I could tell that there was something wrong with her leg.

Mom & Dad called the vet, but unfortunately they can't see her until tomorrow. She's been walking on it, and she seems to be doing OK, but then suddenly she will let out another little yelp and start limping again. Based on my vast medical knowledge, I'm thinking maybe she pulled a ligament or something. OK, I actually don't even know what a ligament is, but I heard Dad say that and it sounded pretty good to me. Anyway, I'm just hoping that whatever it is, she gets it fixed up quickly. Otherwise, I might have to resort to chasing myself around the house. And everydoggy knows it's not as much fun to play with yourself as it is to play with your sister. Uhhhm, that didn't really sound right.... Just hurry up and get well soon Gidgey!

Birthday Pics

First off, I would like to give a great big heartfelt Thank You for all the awesome birthday wishes everydoggy left me. It sure is great to know that I have so many wonderful friends out there. I really can't thank you all enough! Pug hugs and sloppy kisses to everydoggy!

I really did have an awesome birthday this year. Mommy and Daddy even threw me a surprise party. I have to admit I kinda knew about it though. Duke is horrible at keeping secrets. I still acted surprised though. Unfortunately, none of my doggy friends could come because I am still not quite over this nasty roundworm thing. But Duke and I still had fun. Now, on to the pictures...

Duke and I got all dressed up. I was even wearing the lei that my Grandma brought back from Hawaii!

Duke tends to get a little wild at parties...

I got presents and a cake!

Duke just couldn't wait to dig in!

Don't even think about trying to steal my cake Dukie...

This is me with my new stuffies. About 7 seconds after this picture was taken they officially became Duke's property.

So as you can see, we really did have a great time. In fact, I'm pretty sure Duke is still a little hungover. But as I said, he tends to get a little too crazy at parties. I just wish we had gotten some pictures of him with the lampshade on his head. Oh well, maybe next time.

Happy Birthday Gidget

I know that I tease her a lot, and sometimes I even pick on her, but the fact is, I couldn't ask for a better pal than my sister Gidget. So Happy 5th Birthday Gidgey, and thanks for being such a great sister!
Love you, Duke

Happy Mothers Day

We have the bestest Mommy in the whole wide world. And since today just happens to be Mothers Day, we thought we would take advantage of this opportunity to tell her just how awesome we think she is. And as an extra added bonus, Duke promises not to pee on anything important today. We love you Mommy!

We hope all you Mommies out there have a great day today. And we hope all you doggies out there are extra nice to your mommies today. And remember, no pooping in the house!

Happy Mothers Day everybody!

Our Friends

Gidget and I are pretty social pups. Because of that, we have lots of friends, both human and four legged. Today, I thought I'd show you a few of our human friends.

This is us with The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door. Nobody gives butt scratches like The Crazy Man.

This is us with The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door's Sister. She's not quite as crazy as her brother, but we still love her a lot!

This is me with my pal Paris. Gidget doesn't like her very much, so she's not in this picture. If I remember correctly, this picture was taken right before she sniffed my butt.

This is a picture of me and.....hey, wait a minute. How'd this picture get in here? This post was supposed to be about our friends. Grrrrr

So anyway, that should give you an idea of just how social we are. We have a lot more friends, but it's looking pretty sunny outside, and we'd much rather be romping around our backyard than sitting in here posting pictures. Oh, and also, we've got a pretty busy weekend planned, even though we won't be going to Pugapalooza. Not only is tomorrow Mothers Day, but I heard a rumor there might just be a surprise party tomorrow. Shhhhhh, don't tell Gidget.....

Attacking The Slipper

That poor old slipper didn't stand a chance. Of course, it's never a fair fight when Gidget is around. She always has to go and bite my hind legs to try and ruin my fun. Oh well, even when it's two against one I still always find a way to come out victorious. All hail Duke, King of the footwear! hehehehehe

Weekend Update

It was pretty rainy all weekend, so Gidget and I had to keep ourselves entertained indoors. And boy, did we ever! We played and chased each other around all weekend. We were acting like puppies again. It might have had something to do with all the spring cleaning Mom & Dad were doing. The vacuum cleaner always seems to get us into an extra feisty mood.

But what was really weird about our weekend was that Gidget was the one who was instigating most of the roughhousing. She kept getting right up in my face and saying "c'mon big boy, you want some of this"? So of course I had to wack her with my paw and make her chase me around. It was great fun! At least until Mom & Dad started yelling at me for playing too rough. It wasn't my fault though, SHE started it! But did they listen? Of course not! Poor innocent Gidget NEVER gets in trouble, just big, bad, troublemaker Duke. Life is so unfair I tell you! Grrrrr.....Oh well, at least it was fun. Hopefully we'll have some video to post later, but right now I just need to get my strength back so I can knock that smug look off my dumb sisters face. You'll get yours Gidgey....hehehehehe

Upside Down Tagged

We got tagged by Ronin. The rules of this game are simple: You have to post a picture of yourself in a vertically reversed position. If you tag three other bloggers, you're done!

Well, it sounded pretty simple. But it turned out that out of the millions of pictures Mommy & Daddy have taken of me, I am actually only upside down in one of them. I guess I just don't like being vertically reversed. This picture was taken when I was just a baby.

Duke had an even harder time finding a picture of himself in a vertically reversed position. He said he had to search and search, but he finally came up with this one.

He assures me that this picture is not photoshopped in any way. I am not so sure though. That tongue looks pretty suspicious to me......

OK, so now we have to tag three more bloggers and then we're done. Woo Hoo! We love being done! We would like to tag Winston, Rocco, and Napoleon and Maggie. Get them paws in the air guys!
