Today a very cool package arrived in the mail for yours truly! It is my new leash....
(Bruschi's mom here: I absolutely love this! We tried it out tonight and it is so comfortable to hold, and if he does tug a little, there is so much tension on this that he hardly gets anywhere, and I don't feel a thing! This Urban one is 1.5 feet in length according to the website, but actually it is a bit longer.....the rubber part is 1.5 feet. It is a perfect length for keeping him close by while walking but allowing him a little sniffing room!)

Oh that's right furiends; 37 POUNDS! OMD! I am a fatty! The vet was not pleased! Mommy told him how I eat only 2 cups of food a day, and walk at least 4-5 miles a day, not to mention my food is reduced fat, gluten free and grain free!! So the vet said that I need to lose SEVEN pounds!!!!!! And told Mommy I am only to eat ONE cup of food a day! Can you believe it?! ONE cup? I am going to starve to death! This is so unfair! I eat so healthy and exercise so much...there must be some explanation for all of this! All I know is I am NOT a happy puggle at the moment! Mommy dragged me out on a super long walk tonight and fed me half a cup of kibble. No wonder I am still hungry! How am I going to lose 7 pounds?! Any suggestions from my skinny furiends?

Daddy chose to take us here for Mommy's birthday and because it is a pet friendly resort! Sadly, after checking in, we found out that the website was inaccurate and that there are NO doggy beaches in the area at all! Mommy was very angry at the people in the hotel lobby and told them we would now only be staying one night, seeing there was no where I could go to have any fun! The hotel was great, but it would have been better if the pets could actually go places on the resort!
Well as you can see, I made myself right at home here. We had a suite, so there was plenty of rooms for me to investigate, as well as 2 balcony's!
Ok, let the humiliation begin! BOL! Here I am in my vacation wear! What do you think? Do I look like I am on vacation or what!
So what did I do on my vacation you ask? Well here are a few pictures of my trip:
Well I took several strolls along the ocean strip....so much to see and sniff!
Stopped to take pictures for the Pup-a-razzi!
Went to this place called "Cravings" and got a bowl of ice cream! Yummy!
Oh and I took a cool bath after a long day in the hot sun! I can't believe I am posting this picture of me in the tub! BOL!
And after a very long busy day, I went to sleep in this giant King sized bed that felt like laying in a huge pile of marshmallows! What more could a puggle ask for!

But in honor of my "Firsts", I thought I 'd share with you a few pictures.
This is my FIRST Car Ride! This is the day Mommy and Daddy picked me up at the airport. I was so sleepy, I really don't remember the car ride experience.
This is my FIRST Bath! I was so little that they actually bathed me in the kitchen sink! Now I am such a big boy that I go in the shower! BOL!
This FIRST I surely remember! It was my FIRST Snow Cone from the Ice Cream Truck! BOL! I heard that thing coming and I had never seen a truck with all sorts of music coming out of it! So Daddy flagged the truck down, I THOUGHT to go tell him to turn that silly music off, but instead, he came back with a Snow Cone! And boy was it deeeeelicious!
And coming soon.......my FIRST VACATION! I don't know what a Vacation is but Mommy has the suitcases out and she even packed a special bag full of my clothes, food, treats, favorite stuffie, a bone, and my blue blanky! Where could we be going?! I am getting excited!

Ogie was a huge part of a family friend's life for 16 years! That's right, Ogie lived to see his
Sweet 16th Birthday!
Unfortunately with age, comes illness. Ogie fought to live as long as he could until he knew it was time for him to go. He managed to see his Mommy turn 40 this year, just last month! Him and his mommy Ciara, were best friends! They did everything together and went everywhere together. Sadly, on Wednesday night, Ogie took a turn for the worst. Ciara knew it was time. Ogie had lived a long and happy life. Ciara did what was best for Ogie on October 1st, and let Ogie go to sleep. RIP Ogie. You will be missed by many. You will remain forever in our hearts.
By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.
For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.
They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.
For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.
The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.
