The Pugs are doing really well, they've been just chillaxing, wrestling with eachother, and eating everything in site. Bella has been "bootscooting" a lot lately so i'm gonna have to take her to the vet to get her anal glands expressed. Boy, let me tell you is she not a fan of that. For some reason her anal glands get full soooo fast, we haven't had any issues with Perogi yet.
Anyway here are some recent pics of the babies and a recent play date with Perogi's biological sister Tressie with my friend Chelsea.
This is Chelsea with Tressie and Bella. It's so cute when she comes over. You can totally tell that her and Perogi are related. They have the same doggyisms and love being with eachother.

Bella and Perogi are doing great! They are adjusting well to their new lifestyle. It's lonely sleeping without them some nights but it makes seeing them even more worth it.
Even though our lives have been hectic we've had some time to help dogsit some of our friends dogs. Bella and Perogi love having sleepovers and i love it b/c they get so pooped afterwards!
This is Lola. She is my friends BulldogShe is also Perogi's girlfriend. They love playing together and she is such a good dog. The only issue is that being a bulldog, she gets so tired and it's nearly impossible to walk her with Bella and Perogi. They pull on their leashes and she takes her time walking and lays down in the middle of the street if she feels like. So basically i get pulled in both directions. She's not the most active of dogs, but still so darn cute.
This is Tressie. She is Perogi's biological sister. When we first got Perogi some girl in my building stopped me and asked me what breeder i went to. I gave her their card and she went out and got Tressie. We're so lucky to live so close to her. They play so well together it's adorable. I swear they know that they are related whenever they see eachother they immediately get happy. We watched her this past week while her owners were in florida. She's adorable. Perogi's mom was fawn and his dad was apricot so that's why they are different colors. We are actually gonna have a joint bday party for them in august :)
Here they are together.
and finally a pic of B & P snoozing. Playing is very hard work. They play hard and nap harder :)

We are each moving to a 1 bedroom apt in our same big complex and after long deliberation over what would be best for the pugs we have decided to have joint custody. I work 12 hour shifts every other day so it would be impossible for me to take care of them myself and i couldn't live without them. Therefore they will still be in both of our lives and we won't separate them. They will spend my days off with me and every other with Jeff. I know we both are willing to make it work.
I'm planning on getting back to blogging very soon, definitely after our move (next weekend). We're both concerned about how the pugs will adapt but i know as long as they are together they will be fine. Has anyone had any experience with this sort of thing? Feel free to email me if you have some advice @ vhyst at hotmail dot com.
Please check back often, i have a ton of pictures and pug stories to post after the move :-)

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Me: I was just graduating high school (my 10 yr reunion is this year..yikes) and for the record...i HATED dogs. If you would have asked me in high school if i would ever own a dog i would without hesitation say absolutely not! Yuck! Now, i'm so obsessed with mine that i have a blog in their honor :-)
The Pugs: Bella was -8 years old and Perogi was -9.2 years old
2. Five Things on my to-do list today.
Me: Take the dogs to the groomer, pick them up, make turkey sausage ziti for work tomorrow, Go to gym to do step and body pump class, clean
Perogi: Beg mom for food while cooking, roll over many times for belly rub, lick everything in sight, obsessively play a game of fetch till Dad gets tired, nap

3. Three snacks I enjoy.
Me: Baked Lays, candy specifically jelly beans,granola bites
Bella: Clementines, milkbones,anything mom and dad are eating.

4.Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
Me: Pay off my gigantic school loans, buy a nice house with a backyard for the pugs,travel a lot!, quit my job :)
5. Three of my bad habits.
Me: Biting my nails, not putting away my clothes, watching too much reality tv
Bella: Barking at the tv, scritchy scratching on the door when she's not allowed in, being too spoiled to eat kibble without some human food on top (ie mozzarella cheese)

While there we also got to go to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. We noticed a lot of photo spots, which Jeff felt the urge to take pictures of: how pretty :)
We had a blast!! btw...the new simpson's ride was amazing!! While there our friends took care of our dogs. They have the cutest bulldog, Lola who is Perogi's girlfriend. They all had a great time but made sure to give us adequate licks and kisses when we got back.
Bella and Perogi are taking part in Pug and Bugg's Sophie's next top pug model. They are so excited...This week we have to send in pictures of them with their stuffies. I've sent these...

This kid sat next to me at the hockey game the other night. That says "obama" on his head. I was kind of scared of him.
And there's the best pug in the universe.
