Hank checking out our backyard
Hank telling me some dirty jokes.
When I first came to live with Mom at the end of 2009, she was pretty clueless about pugs. So she spent a lot of time on the ol' "interwebs" reading about pugs, and she came across a whole bunch of pug blogs! One of the very first, was Hank's. It was also one of Mom's very favorites. Hank was a very special, very funny guy and he made Mom & I chuckle all the time. We were so excited when, last summer, Hank's mom Sarah contacted my mom and said she would be driving through St. Louis on her way from Indianapolis to Oklahoma. You might remember some of this from my very recent post in memory of Sweet Payton. Vinny had just come to live with us, and boy did we have a good time bossing Hank around!
Watching with pride as Soldier Vinny questioned Hank
After that, we still weren't sure if we believed Hank's military past (sure he showed us some dog tags but you can buy those anywhere!), but he somehow won us over anyway.
Even when my Mom started snuggling on him!
Mom, can't you see how much he HATES that? You should pick me up instead.
And when Payton's Mom gave him a massage that I would give my first-born to get!
And clearly, Vinny as well!

The magnet that Hank brought us on his visit. PS We Love You, too. :)
Hank, his dad, his mom, and his sister Molly O'Malley - who we know is outrunning Hank at the bridge right now!
Big hugs and lots of love,
Vito (and my mom & brother too)
