Hi guys! I really feel for all my puggy friends out there: my parents and I watch the news every evening and it seems like the rest of the country is getting slammed with supercold weather. It is currently 71 degrees outside now, and it is not even 8 o'clock AM! But no worries -- my grandmother decided to share her cold weather experience by giving the entire Wild Floridian Swamp Pug family a nasty bug. She came down last week and promptly got sick, and now my parents and little sis have fever, chills, and some kind of cough. I haven't been blogging because someone has to take care of them, cook, clean the house, take care of the bills, etc! It is a good thing puggies are immune to human viruses . . .

The beach in January

This is what winter in Florida is supposed to be -- warm and cozy enough for the beach! We had several cold days this winter but now the weather has been spectacular.

I am watching little sis try to put dirt into her bucket. I told her she would get better results by tossing the dirt in with her paws instead of using that silly shovel.

Keeping an eye out for crabs to dine on

Life is good

Helping out

We are having a run of guests which means it is time to clean up the house. We all have to play our part in getting the house in order . . .

This is my little sis trying to clean the toilet. That is, after she threw in Mommy's birthday card into the toilet (before Mommy had a chance to read it!)

I did my part by taking my little sis out on a walk with me so my parents can clean the house without interference. I am such a good sister!

Happy Belated New Year

Ok, ok, I know we are two weeks deep into the New Year but I want to wish everyone out there a safe and successful 2011! The Alaskan-Mountain-Pug-turned-Florida-Swamp-Pug family has been supremely busy these past several months; no excuse for not blogging, but there it is. To sum up the 2010 holidays: my parents had a horrendous experience traveling to Michigan for Thanksgiving (no thanks to Delta airlines). I was very smart and stayed in the warm climates of West Palm Beach courtesy of my friends Jennifer and her dogs Ruby and Frankie; I did drive up with my family to central New Jersey for Christmas and we got caught in that blizzard (my grandparents got 2.5 feet of snow in one day!); New Year's spent at home (finally) without my Mom who was working.

Well, that's the summary. I would have blogged sooner, but my parents laptop went crazy, something about not finding the RAM memory and "fatal error in the hard drive", etc. I personally think it was because my Daddy dropped the laptop few times, but he gives me the evil eye when I mention that, so I don't bring that up. So I am just posting a few pictures of moi during Christmas while the computer is having a good day . . .

This is me with the ladies (actually my sister-in-laws and my baby cousin). NOBODY could keep there hands off me at Christmas. I was the star of the show!

I don't even know why Mommy bothered to snap this picture when I was cropped out of it. Anyway this is me (cut off in the bottom), Daddy, and little sis in her Christmas PJs.

A puggy needs to rest after all that attention

My brilliant Mommy thought I wanted to go romp and play in 2.5 feet of snow. I obviously thought she was insane
