On thursday Bella turned 2 years old. I can't believe she's 2 already, it's crazy how fast the years fly by. To celebrate she wore her new birthday dress (compliments of lola) and i bought her some doggy birthday cookies, peanut butter truffles and a birthday cake stuffed toy from this really cute dog barkery by our house. Of course Perogi got to share everything as well.

Bella was the princess for the day. Wait, what am i saying? she's a proud princess everyday!! (and we love her for it) Happy birthday Bellski!

It's meme time!

Lex tagged us for a meme, so off we go:

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player than tags 4 or 5 people and post their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you have posted your answer.

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
Bella: Cry while going to the groomer, look spectacularly adorable afterwards, follow mom around all day, burrow under the covers, bark at tv

3. Three snacks I enjoy.
Me: Baked Lays, candy specifically jelly beans,granola bites
Bella: Clementines, milkbones,anything mom and dad are eating.
Perogi: ANYTHING...because he inhales his food, he doesn't taste it or chew, just swallows.

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)
Perogi: Ripping up the carpet, barking off of balconys, being obsessed with toys and fetch.

6. Five places I have lived.
Me: Long Island, Pittsburgh, Tampa, Alexandria, Arlington
Bella: ??puppy mill??, pet store, home with us
Perogi: Breeders then here with us

7. Five jobs I have had.
Me: babysitter, bookstore, pharmacy intern, Staff Pharmacist, Pharmacy manager
The Pugs: being the two most adorable puggies in the's a very tough job and they do it exceptionally well

Ok we tag anyone else who wants to do this meme!

Lastly, here are the puggies after coming back from the groomer!! They are so soft and fluffy, and of course adorable.

Trip to Orlando

We got back from orlando this week. We were down there for Jeff's friend's wedding (from Dental School) Here's us at the wedding:

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...

How Fierce!!!!!

Happy May

Hey everyone! Happy May! here in DC the weather has been absolutely wonderful!! My mom sent the pugs a package. Bella received some beautiful dresses and my mom crocheted each one their own scarf (for next winter). We then had a fashion show to show off all their new items. WARNING: major cuteness below. observe at your own risk.Bella posing with new scarf. It's perfect for winter and matches her harness!Perogi looking very dapper in his scarf! So adorable.Here's the first dress my mom sent Bella. It says "love at first bark" and if you knew Bella you would find this humorous because she constantly barks at the tv with her high pitched bark. We still love her though!Here's the 2nd dress. It's a ballerina dress with a heart on it. She loved it so much she wore it all day b/c she wouldn't let me take it off.

that concludes our fashion show. Thanks mom!! Bella and perogi give you tons of licks and snuggles
