You Can't Take The Sexy Out Of A Pug

Hi Everyone.

I have spent these past few days trying to keep busy.
I have been attempting to get a hold of a few of the Las Vegas
Pug Rescue Organizations to see if they need a volunteer,
but I have had no luck with anyone returning my calls
or e-mails. I tried to get involved with a few of
the same rescues when I moved here almost two
years ago, and the same thing happened.

I'm going to keep trying. I really want to help out
in any way I can. I'm not used to not being around animals.
I feel like I'm walking around with no pants on all day.
Very strange. In the meantime, I stumbled across quite
a few photos of Penny I misplaced over the years.
Her beefy sexiness shined bright from the start.
I found a few photos of my cats as well.

I have been trying to scrapbook Penny's photos. I can tell you
that I have hundreds, probably close to a thousand pictures
of her. I have more photos of Penny, than I have of my human
family members. They don't seem to mind. They understand
she was just sexier.

Here are a few of the photos I came across:

Penny and Tabitha.

Tabitha was a little sexy hoochie cat. She would lie on her back,
in front of all the neighbors with her legs spread. It brought us
a lot of attention. Tabitha also liked to gently swat Penny's
pug butt. It was strange, but very sweet. Tabitha passed
away a few years ago at the age of nine.

This was my cat Darlene.

I adopted her as a kitten when I was five. She passed away at
the age of 19. I'm not sure how old that would be in human
years, but she had a nice long life. She never liked
Tabitha, Penny or any human very much. She was
kind of mean, but we loved her.

Tiny Beefy Sexy Penny!

This wasn't my party, it was Penny's. You can tell
it was Penny's birthday, because she had more extravagant

I'm sure everyone has been keeping up on their blog reading,
but I wanted to say again, how much I loved your whipped cream
photo tributes to Penny. It looked like your pugs had a day
of deliciousness. I never thought that when I brought
Penny into my life, her passing would spark a sexy
whipped cream movement. I'm sure some of your
pugs will now be addicted, just as Penny
was. That stuff is good. Penny knew
how to live life to the
sexy fullest!

I hope you had a great weekend, and did something
fun with your pugs!

Hey Lady Dana!

So good to hear from you!!! Sorry that your local rescue is being a butt with getting back to you. I know it's so frustrating when you just want to offer your help - oh and rescues need's just a matter of the right hand not knowing sometimes what the left hand is doing. My local rescue is NIPRA and they can't seem to get enought volunteers, but like you, I have so many people saying they try to contact them and never hear back. They need to employ some pugga to answer them phones and e-mails.
Josie says you can borrow Izzy. She has been trying to ship her to Pearls Momma and Wilma's Momma.
Your photos are sweet. Again, I feel so sad, but you seem like you are in better spirits and you know that she is with you!
I laughed when you said you have more photos of her then your family members. Sounds like this house too. We all liked that big ladybug pillow.
Thank you for sharing Penny's pictures with us Dana! We are glad you are doing well. We are here for you girl!
Have a good nite!

Hopefully your one of the local rescues you contacted will get in touch with you.

I know that I have more pictures of Yoda & Brutus and my three cats than my human family members too :D

Just love the photos of Penny and your two kitties.

Pugs & Kisses,

Cindy, Yoda & Brutus

SO good to hear from you Dana! We've been thinking of you nonstop over here!

LOVE the Sexy Penny pics! Wow...that C*T was quite the hoochie (guess that's where Penny learned to be so sexy?)

We're sure these rescue people will get off the stick soon enough...but if should totally relocate here to Indy!

Hi Dana! I am so happy to hear from you!

I love all of those sexy Penny pictures. Just like you, I have more pictures of Pearl than of anyone in my family. I think that's the way it should be! :)

I had the exact same troubles with my pug rescue here. After some failed attempts, I ended up volunteering at the humane society instead. It was a lot more organized and, while pugs are my favorite, I enjoy the chance to work with dogs and cats of all breeds.

Hope someone gets back to you soon!

Pearl and I are sending big hugs to you!

Wilma said...

Hi Dana,
We were so happy to hear from you. Those are some pretty cute kittens, and I don't even like cats. I love the pictures of Penny, she has always been so sexy. I really like the picture of her sticking her tongue out.She looks like she is mocking someone, and that is the kind of behavior I encourage out of a pug. I sure hope those rescue people contact you soon. They don't know what an awesome pugvocate they are missing out on. Maybe you could put the word out to more rescues that may need transporters.Just a thought.
Stay well,
Wilma, Britte, Sluggo and their Mom

Thanks for sharing those adorable photos! We too have a million Pug pics. I am on my 4th scrapbook of our bunch...crazy, funny, Pugness!Our last cat is 19 also...I need to check on the human year number, but he is one OLD LOOKING MESS right now! Maybe you could google local events in your area and get into helping a rescue that way. Not sure why they don't answer emails...I'm sure they loose many good helpers that way!

Hi Dana, What a wonderful post. It's nice to remember Penny that way.

Don't give on the pug rescue. Sometimes they get so busy it's hard for them to return phone calls.

It's nice to hear from you!

Hi Dana
We were soooo happy to see you wrote to all of us- your friends!
First of all with all the love you have for puggies- someone is missing on not having you . So do not give up. You have so much love to give.
We loved all those sexy photos of Penny. Thank you so much for sharing, and I hope you send us more and more. We love looking at them, and it keeps Penny closer in our hearts. I like her very close- so keep sending.
That old kitty was 19? That is incredible, and that other kitty too- wow what tributes to all those precious loves you had.
We hope to hear from you again soon- okay. we love you, and thank you for thinking of US, by sharing

Dana, I love Penny's pictures! Her birthday parties resemble that of Spencer's- he has more presents and attention than anyone else in the family. I think that's how it should be...they are such special parts of our hearts. Also, love your two cats! Aren't they all just characters?
