Baby It's Cold Outside

It's really cold outside! So I've been doing a whole lot of snoozing under blankets. I like to burrow allll the way under them and freak my Mom out. I don't know how I breathe under there, I just do! So here is a collection of pictures of me looking adorable (as usual) and doing my best to be as lazy as possible.

This is my favorite place to lay, on the couch or in bed at night - right behind my Mom's knees!


See how tired I am?

Gosh it is so exhausting being me.

ET, Phone Home

I know, I know, I am too cute for words, I get that all the time.

By the way, don't think I haven't been reading all of your blogs about all of the turkey you guys had last week. I didn't get any turkey!! Mom and I stayed here in our new house this year for Thanksgiving instead of going to Grandma and Grandpa's, and you know Grandma is the only one who ever gives me FOOD. Plus my Mom doesn't eat meat off the bone (she is weird!!) so she always makes meatloaf and sides instead. So I couldn't even TRY for any turkey scraps! How about that. And to top it all off, my jerky cousin Jack told me that HE went to Grandma & Grandpa's and HE got turkey and HE ran the whole house like he owned the place! I'm going to have a lot of work to do down there to get things back in order when we go for Christmas.

So instead of feeding me turkey, Mom put up these strange "decorations" all over the house, including a TREE, right in the middle of the living room!

Later friends!

Our mom won't eat meat off the bone either! She can't eat anything that looks like it was recently alive. Now, she does make a big turkey for the holidays, but she takes all the meat off and puts it on a platter. We had pizza for Thanksgiving, so you weren't alone.

The mom here. If you are interested in fostering, you should read this.

And talk to your rescue folks a lot. Talk to other foster parents about the situations that might come up and how the rescue handles them. The rescue I work with pretty much lets us do whatever we feel is best, but when it comes to money, the leadership has to make really hard decisions. Do they spend $3000 on one pug who may not live very long despite the treatment or do they spend that money on several pugs? Especially in this crappy economy. I pay for most of Quincy and Isabelle's medical care, on top of all the food and supplements. Now, I get to deduct that on my taxes so that's a real help. I have a file for each of them and keep every receipt. Last year, between actual cash donations, donations of stuff for events and expenses for Q&I, it was over $1000. Makes for a nice tax return.
Now, my two are long term fosters, having been with me since March 2009. Likely, they will not be adopted, or if one passes, the other might be adopted alone. So you do need to consider that your foster might be with you for a while.
And if you have a choice, ask for a girl dog that is closer in age to Vito. Younger dogs get adopted faster (so less time to get attached), opposite sexes tend to get along better, and the closer they are in age, usually the closer they are in energy levels. Although it might drive you crazy, having an elderly dog with a younger dog drives the elderly dog crazy. Trust me.
Good luck and take your time.

Oh thank you so very much for the information! I just read the "Why to Foster" piece you wrote and it is great and all your tips are so helpful! I must admit my biggest hesitation has been the "attachment factor" - but as you say, it's a necessary evil to get these puggies to their forever homes. Thank you sooo much!

Gina (and Vito too!)

PS Vito here and my Mom couldn't dare cut meat off of a turkey without barfing!

And Slimmer Puggums, I would love to visit Kansas someday and even better, have some turkey in Kansas! My mom went to college there and she tells me it was mostly just flat and windy but she often doesn't tell the truth.

Your tree is beautiful! We love it!!!
I also like to snuggle and can see you like having your little pug head elevated on a soft surface such as pillow or a human leg to get in that perfect pug snooze. I love doing that and snuggling in a pile of blankets. My mama and papa pug call it PUGTON and it takes up a whole spot on the sofa! Vito, you are so cute. Thanks for visiting our blog!

Omg, you do look a little like E.T. in that picture. Priceless.

I agree. It's totally important to be lazy when it's too cold to go outside. I mean I don't see the humans jumping up to go pee outside?!

And your tree is awesome.
