Pugs - Tuesday's Show and Tail
Welcome to the Tenth Weekly Segment of Tuesdays' Show & Tail! I hope everyone will join Angela (click here) every Tuesday to post a picture or two of your pets, wildlife or visit to the zoo and tell a little about them!
Tuesdays' Show & Tail is about having fun, and giving us a chance to meet other pet owners in the blogging community. If you are visiting and would like to join in on the fun, please do so! Everyone is welcome.
Now I copied this from Angela's web site - I have been asked to blog about Tuesday's Show and Tail.
Therefore it is true that everyone is welcome, because I don't have any pets. I did, but every time we got a dog I got so sick I had to give them to one of my friends - and yes they are still my friends, but I keep breaking my families heart. I tried so hard to get them a pet, but my immune system - allergies were just too strong for a pet.
Therefore I have no current pet stories, but I do have a couple of old ones and a couple of funny stories.
So here is my first Show and Tail.
I am a pug lover - now I have found from blogging the world of Corgi's. They are pretty cute too.
I'm going to talk about pugs tonight. Our first pug was a girl named Irma. She was my dog and I loved her so very much. It like to have killed me to give her away, but she went to a great home and we did get to see and visit with her once in awhile.
We lived in Chicago and it was one of the worst winters ever - extremely cold with the bitter windchill and snow that didn't melt until April. It was in the 80's sometime.
So we purchased two sets of doggie boots. His paws would freeze in the snow and she couldn't go out and use the bathroom fast enough before she would freeze. So boots seemed like the answer.
I don't have a picture of this, but let me tell you - it was one of the funniest days of my life. Rick and I laughed so hard we woke the kids up and they came downstairs to see what was happening.
Irma lost all brain knowledge of how her feet worked. She couldn't move them. They went out every where. You had to see it - so funny.
Hugs and kisses,
Happy Birthday to Mary Queen of Scotts.
