Up and At Them, Pug Style!

I've been doing a LOT to help my momma with the chores. 

Here I am getting ready to go in and tell those chickens to "GET OUT HERE IN THE SUN!" for my momma. 

Sometimes chickens can be very slow. 

Then I gave the stink eye to the five little punks  I mean roosters that I like to chase.  Momma was watching me, so I didn't run them this time. 

Pretty soon, we came in to the house, where it was cooler, and I had a good cold drink of water with Ranger before we rested for a while.  

Pugs are good resters!

A Long Week

My Momma did not realize we had not posted since Monday! 

This was me on Tuesday, it was snowing here at our farm, and my momma told me to stay in bed and stay warm, so I am on my pillow on the couch. 

By Wednesday, I was rarin' to go again, and playin' with my stuffies. 

And today, even though it rained all day... I helped momma with our chores, and kept an eye on the baby chicks for her!

Look What I Found for Momma!

Look what I found!  One of those funny quackers ran out of there when I stuck my head in... and look what she left behind!  Momma said I was a good girl, because I didn't chase her... and I guarded the egg!

I'm Back!

Someday, dogs will have opposeable thumbs, I know it. 

I've been helpin' my momma a lot. 

I keep an eye on the ducks for her, even though they quack a lot at me. 

Momma, they won't hurt me, will they? 

Here I am, bringing the truck in with my daddy! 

And here I am tonight, havin' a drink with my big brother Ranger! 

He has trouble gettin' up and down, and momma brings his water to him sometimes.

Where was Abby?

I'm one smart little Pug.  

My momma asked me to come out and help her today, but it was rainin' off and on all day. 

Pretty soon, momma was looking for me.  She was afraid I was down in the pasture where the wolves could jump out and get a fat little pug, and she got scared.  She came across the yard calling for me. 

I was at the door, waitin' for her. 

"Here I am, momma, ready to go inside where it's warm!" 

(Momma let me in!)

Pooped Out Today

 I was one pooped pug today... and didn't even do chores with my momma.  
Maybe tomorrow!

The Protector of Us All

Here is my big sister Lilly... the Protector of Us All 

I'm the Associate Protector of Us All, and we keep watch over our brother Ranger, who has trouble getting around now.  We wait for him, because we love him.

The Hole in the Tree

While my momma was pickin' up sticks, I checked out the big trunk of the walnut tree. 

When momma turned around, all she saw was my little curly tail, my whole body was in the big hole, because I was smellin' the good smells in there.  It scared her, because she is afraid the tree will fall on me. 

I came out after a minute, but I was still smellin' good stuff. 

Guess what else came here today? 

That's right!  Now there's FOUR of those things that make the funny noises, and momma won't let me chase them, either!

My Friday

 I am very happy today, because 
little Gus, our new furriend and the little brother for 
Stella Rose and the Magster, is better! 

I know his sisters were scared to death, and his momma was so worried... so YAYYY for little Gus! 

And we are sending prayers too for Dutch, who is Pug's big brother, since he got so sick this week, too. 

We don't want anyone to be sick. 

I was keeping these girls in line while momma was gettin' their waterer filled. 
They didn't dare to come past me! 

Then I got a little drink before momma took it back in!

My Friends Jester and Shiner

My momma missed a day for my blog... she was so busy and so tired. 
I'm sorry for my momma, she has been workin' so hard takin' care of everyone here. 

These guys are my furriends, they're my momma's grand-dogs.  That's Shiner on the left, and Jester on the right.  Jester has been out to our house, and he's super fun to play with, because he can jump as high as the counters and he never stops. 

Shiner doesn't get to go too many places in the car, because he is so big and he drools all over everything. 

I have a crush on him, though. 

Isn't he dreamy? 

I'm sittin' on your feet, Daddy, until you take me to see Shiner!

Uh-Oh, I Gots in Trouble!

We were gardening AGAIN.  B.O.R.I.N.G. 

All I do is wait for momma, but I can search around in the yard and smell good things. 

Momma was plantin' swiss chard. 

I just wanted to see what she was doin'. 

I guess I was gettin' in the way, but I just wanted to smell that dirt. 

Momma walked over to say something to daddy, and daddy started laughing and told her to turn around.  As soon as she shot this, I sat down on her plant! 

Daddy rescued me, though, and carried me in the house! 
I'm not grounded, Daddy says.  I was just bein' TOO helpful!

Playin' with Momma

Momma said it was too humid for little pug girls to play outside for long today, even though we are still workin' on the D.I.E.T.. 

I still don't know what that means. 

Where's my bunny, Momma? 

It's MY Bunny! 

No matter where momma throws it, I can find it! 

I'm a good finder!

Helpin' My Daddy

I love the weekends, because I get to help my daddy a lot. 

You are NOT leavn' without me today, Daddy! 

Wanna see what me and Daddy are buildin? 

We are puttin' a front wall on the barn, and fixin' the roof, so some little furriends can come to live with us here. 

Daddy has the front framed in, with two windows at the sides, and a dutch door framed in the middle. 

Look what we gots!  Baby Peeps! 

Momma says I can't see them for a while, because their momma Nugget has to keep them warm and safe.  

That's it for a tired little puggy at Calamity Acres.

Workin' in the Henyards

Today, we filled the duck's pond again.  Momma is only filling it every three days, instead of every day, since they have a smaller bowl to drink out of that momma keeps clean for them. 

The chickens drink out of this pond, too. 

There they are.  They still won't let me get near them. 

They get that water really dirty! 

I was watching carefully from the steps.  Momma gets scared when I go up on the deck, because there is no railing, and she is afraid for me to fall. 
Daddy is going to put a railing here. 

I thought I'd go in through the pophole and see what the guys inside were doing.  Momma has the door propped open because it got so hot this afternoon. 

Then I played in the water for a while, but momma realized I was really, really hot, and she took me in the house where it was a lot cooler. I was glad! 

We gots a new little peeps here!

Very T.I.R.E.D.

We did a LOT more of this today! 

You notice I have my steely glare on something. 

I checked out what was going on under the deck while momma kept rakin' at the garden beds. 

But to tell you the truth, momma finally had to bring me inside to take a rest, because my little puggy body gets overheated so easily. 

"C'mon, Abs... let's go outside and finish the beds...." 

"No, momma... YOU go... I'm gonna rest for a while!"

We're Pooped OUT

My momma has been working hard all morning, and I've been helping. 

Yep, we're out in the garden again. 

We kept going back and forth with the gardening stuff. 

Finally, we took a break for a minute so momma could sit down by the chicken yard.  I was lookin' for those funny ducks, but they were hiding from me. 

Uh oh... BUSTED.  I found something out in the yard to eat, and I had already had my green beans for lunch.  I'm trying to look inconspicuous here, because momma caught me and told me to stop. 

Who, ME?????

I Went to See Dr. Tom

This afternoon, my daddy took me to see Dr. Tom.  Momma was worried about my eyes, and my nails needed a pedicure, and momma can't hold me up and keep me still, so I always go with daddy. 

We can't take pictures at the vet's office when daddy goes with me, because he doesn't have any extra hands like momma does. 

Here I am getting out when I got home: 

Guess what?  I lost a pound and a third!  YAYYYYY! 
My momma was very happy, and so was Dr. Tom, because he had warned daddy I was TOO BIG. 
Everything is okay with me, but my orbs are getting dry.  My sister Hannah had dry orbs, too, and now my momma has to start putting drops in them three times a day, and I have to go see Dr. Tom again in two weeks. 

Here I am on duty in the henyard.  I was looking for those funny things that momma brought here yesterday

If you look close, you can see them there, in the dark! 

I don't know what they are yet, but they make funny noises!  I like to chase them, and momma says I will be grounded if I keep doing that! 

Here I am when we were finished, you can see my toes look so nice, and I am surveying everything to make sure things are right in our yard.  
My orbs can see, they are just getting a little too dry... but momma put drops in, and they feel good now! 

My momma says we are going to work on the D.I.E.T. .  Does anyone know what that means?
