I'm back, all moved in and ready to get on with my life, and my blog :) A big thank you to everyone for all your support and kind words. Breakups are never easy and it's nice to know people have gone through the same thing.

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 :)

Breaking up is hard to do...

Hey everyone i know it's been forever since my last post. I guess you can say a lot has been going on. Jeff and I, after 2+ years of dating, 2 pugs, and 1 apartment have decided to call it quits. It's obviously very personal and not appropriate for a pug blog but that's what i've been dealing with.

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 :-)
