why, you say?
December 14, 2009

I ran into an old friend the other day. I hadn't seen him since Pugsley's passing when he was around to witness the heartache I endured.

Because he follows my blog, he also knew that I adopted Plum but we hadn't really discussed it.

We pulled up two bar stools and talked over a pint.

"Ok, I have to ask ....why would you put yourself right back into that same situation again so soon, why not get a puppy?

My answer was like all of my answers tend to be: honest, simple and straightforward -

"Because she needed me.... as much as I needed her."

He doesn't wonder why anymore.

To me it gives me insight as to who you really are.
If I were looking for a lover/friend/ partner/wife it would be a quality I would like in a woman.
I must admit the pugs around here are treated (spoiled) far more than me
I really don't mind cause I spoil them rotten too.

That pic says it all.
the look, the playfullness, a happy healthy pug that has come so far because of you all sumed up in that gleam in her eye
I for one Lori get it.

orI could have started singing...

"There's a girl right next to you, and she's just waitin' for something to do.

And there's a rose in the fisted glove and the eagle flies with the dove, and if you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with"

Get it?
