A little boys best pug friend!

Ya know, when we had to put pug down in June, our hearts were broken. We didn’t think that anything or ANY pug could replace what pug (aka Edward) was to us. A pudgy, food-loving, snoring, lazy, loyal one-eyed companion that followed me around the house ALL the time. He was with Aaron before we were married, agreeably moved into many houses with us, layed beside me in comfort while I was grieving the loss of my parents and grouch-illy accepted both a new pug (Gwen) and a baby boy into his house! The day we had to say good-bye to pug was the day that a GIANT pug-shaped hole appeared in our hearts!

But, along comes Norman! A 8 week-old, fawn colored little pug with loads of energy and the fetching-ability that Edward never had! :) He waits outside Zeke’s door every morning and eagerly greets him waiting to play when that door opens! He chews on Edwards favorite Watermelon toy, runs and runs and runs with Zeke, plays tug-of-war with Gwen and has started to repair our pug-shaped hole! We love him. He’s perfect for our family.

Welcome to the family Norman Linus! :) You are already a little boy’s best pug friend with adventures that are only beginning! :)

    It’s always sad when we loose a long time furry family member. We had to put our cat down months after my late husband died.Then we were only in our new home 1 1/2 months when our stray Archie came into our lives. I was hesitant at first though thought the kids would love him.It was 4 months after this that my youngest daughter found our 2nd stray Autumn (named after the time of year we found her).I was concerned how Archie would react to her and not sure if I could afford 2 cats though she melted our hearts right from day one so I surprised the kids after by keeping her. They now have added so much to our new chapter our lives that it would be impossible to think otherwise. PS Dave and I love pugs too;] He owned one years before we met.
