Wednesday with Words


 Sorry we have been kinda MIA lately


we have some family stuff going on. 

Our grandma (Dad's mom) is in very poor health and is getting hospice care at home. Dad is spending a lot of time there. In the midst of that Mom's older brother passed away last week in California. Mom won't be traveling for the service as she doesn't want to leave Dad. 



In addition Mom's new computer had a fit with the big Windows update, requiring not one but two total resets to get all things up and running  again.

We are trying to keep up with everybody 
and 
Hazel & I are really looking forward to the Holiday fun!


Share your favorite holiday traditions on 
Friday December 22

Then be sure to join Arty and me for

Frigid Friday

Winter is definitely here
The snow we got Sunday night has stuck around


The last two mornings it has been only 10 degrees!
Hazel & I don't stay outside very long


Yesterday the fog rolled in 


I couldn't see anything out my window 
much past our own yard


Christmas Card Count

PUGS - 12
Peeps -  0

Monday Movie



A short Monday video for you today

Doing tricks for my Novice Trick Title



We had high winds yesterday afternoon 
which blew in a snow storm in the evening

All mom could think was 
Yay! 
No worries about driving to work on bad roads anymore!

Just the challenge of 
getting two little pugs to potty
in 3 inches of snow BOL!

Is There Snow at the Rainbow Bridge?


 Friday morning we got down to 16 degrees


Saturday morning we woke up to snow on the ground


Most of it was gone by later in the day 
but more snow is supposed to be on its way tomorrow

With the arrival of winter weather
 today we are thinking of our old man
 on what would have been his 15th birthday




Last winter was so very hard for him
especially when the temps were in the sub zero range
and we had record snowfall
We knew in our hearts it would be his last with us

Just the other day I was seeing who was where
Hazel was in her bed in the study, 
Mabel on her back of the couch "perch".
Then  - "now where's Bailey?" 
that brought tears

My dear Bailey Man,
If there is snow at the Rainbow Bridge
I know your once again young body
 will be oblivious to the cold as you run and play
and that warms my heart

Miss you
love 
Mom

A New Title!

This fall I took a class called
Focus, Fun and Tricks


AKC is now offering a "Trick" title.
There is a list of tricks to choose from for each level
Novice, Intermediate and Advanced

At the end of our six week class we took the test for the Novice Trick Title

You must do 10 tricks from the list

for the Novice level
 if you have the Canine Good Citizen Title on record
that counts as five tricks!

I have my CGC title so I picked five more tricks to do


I did "get in a box"


and "get on a box"



I went over a jump
and 
through a tunnel
and 
I also did a spin on command



My Title Certificate came in the mail on Saturday



Now my official name is

Maybe She's Mabelene BN RN CGC TKN

My Birthday Fun!


I sure had a lot of fun this week celebrating my birthday!

Mom & I go to class on Mondays 


and I got to have a birthday picture 
with some of my friends

Tuesday morning Mom said
 "Mabel, lets go have some agility fun for your birthday!"

We joined our instructor and some others 
to practice our agility skills 


It was very windy! 
do you see my ears flying??



I watched my lab friend Emma while I waited for my turn


I barked at Mom to let her know I was ready to run!
We hoped to have a video to share but it didn't work out.

Then in the afternoon Mom took me to Petco
I got to pick out a toy!


I brought home this green froggie


With our Chewy order Mom got me a new chew toy!


Can I have it now Mom?


I love these puppy nylabones!

And my birthday was not over yet!


I got a package in the mail


Can you guess who it is from??


OMD! a huge bag of treats!! 


Let's see what is in the other package!


Arty sent me a winter scarf to keep me warm!


Thank you Arty! 
Your card made my heart go all a flutter, 
I am such a lucky pug to have such a wonderful guy
The treats are yummy and I love the scarf!!
