Kneed an update? See what I did there? With the pun? I’m on meds.

So you know those gorgeous flowers that CSP brought me? Well they make him sick. Eyes watering, nose running. Now they are living next door with Candice. Yay for her, boo for me. Now I’ll never get flowers again! Today we went and got my stitches out. The doctor gave me pictures of the insides …

Zoe, ZoZo, Zoester

Kiki doesn’t pay her much attention. Growls at her periodically. But she’s relaxing more around her now. Molly & Zoe …

Our family is growing by 4 feet

CSP is addicted to pugs. He’s been jonesing for one for a while now. Come on Guatemala & open back up before my house becomes a kennel!! Anyway, our breeder hasn’t had any pugs since Molly’s litter 2 years ago. A couple days after Christmas I asked her if they were still breeding pugs. She …

Special surgical requests, Valentine’s Day, & puppy love

At the doctor’s office for my pre-op appointment we covered a lot of important topics: Dr: Have you had any previous surgeries? me: Yes. Would you like me to work my way back from the most recent? CSP: (leans in toward doctor) You’re going to run out of space there. Might wanna get another sheet …
