What is with my parents?! They can't seem to sit still at home . . . why can't humans simply play with pugs, eat, sleep, and play and sleep some more?! But noooo -- my parents are flying to some Michigan-place for the weekend. Mommy is not that excited because she thinks it is really cold there; Daddy can't wait because he will be going home.

So, instead of putting me in a kennel for this trip, my wild and wacky parents are trying something new: a pug-sitter. I will be spending the weekend with a family that has a boxer. Boxers are kind of interesting -- they look like big pugs but are kind of spaz-y. They have long legs that kind of get everywhere. But they are quite friendly, even overly aggressively friendly, not like us pugs who are adorably friendly!

Oh Frances I am sure you will be alright. It means you will get extra attention.
I am going away for the weekend too and am leaving Gus and Indy with their 'auntie' who has a big lab. They have lots of fun racing around!
I just make sure I pack their blanket and favorite stuffie. :)
Have fun!

Frances...that sounds a lot better then going to a kennel! You are going to have a blast! Let us know how it goes...Willow and Belle will be having a sitter here with them and Turbo is going to his Foster Moms house while we go on our vacation in a few weeks... I bet your Humans will bring you back a cool t-shirt or something...
Have fun with the Boxer! We have a Boxer friend who rocks!

Hi Frances, well, we agree with the pug posse, it DOES sound a lot better than going to a kennel! We're sure you'll have a lovely time, and your pawents will be back before you know it!

Love Weeny and Daisy xx xx

Oh Frances, I'm sure it isn't all that bad. Wouldn't you rather be in a nice home, than a boring ol' kennel? I think your parents are actually quite nice to do that for you! :)

Oh Frances, being with someone, even a boxer, is better than being in a kennel. At least you won't be ignored all day, stuck in a cell. As for your parents, they do travel quite a bit, don't they. That is good for them, just bad for you. It could be worse. You could be going with them, it is really cold in Michigan right now.

I hope you have a good time with the boxer. I hope he won't box you!

Did your mommy and daddy bring you home a present? ;)
