Always In Our Hearts

Tuesday, May 19, 2009


Okay. So, we're on the third day of our roadtrip and I thought it was about time my girl got it into gear and posted some of the highlights so far! We stopped in Indianapolis the first night & hung out with my girl's friends from college (blah blah blah), yea, okay, let's get going with MY bizness! On the way out of Indy, we had the good fortune to hook up for some pug lovin' from my blog buddy Salinger! Look at those wrinkles! Doesn't he look cool?!

I started by giving him my most inviting goober look.

Then I slowly made my way to his pugginess. I couldn't wait to hear his snorfles up close. Here Salinger is waiting in the arms of his gorgeous mama.

I was playing it cool... starting to move in for a sniff...

and then I TOTALLY SHOUTED IN HIS FACE! Aw, STINK! I kind of blew my cool vibe.

Salinger's mama was able to calm this goober down enough for Sal and I to meet properly.

Ahhhh! I love the smell of puggy in the morning!

While my girl went off with Salinger to get to know him better I stayed and talked with his mama, Laura, about my trip so far and about her family. (She even made me some special roadtrip treats that are GOOBERLICIOUSLY FABULOUS!)

My girl couldn't keep her paws off Sal, and to tell the truth, I totally understand.

The resemblance between Sal and my girl is uncanny.

After Salinger finished his little love session with me and my girl I had a good Indiana roachin' session to refresh myself for the drive ahead.

Then it was back to the GoobMobile with my roadie (my girl) and back on the road!

By late afternoon we were at the house of these



WOooOOoHooOOOoo! I think I'm in terrier heaven! I was actually in the yard of my buds, Scruffy, Lacie & BabyStan!

I love all three of my buds, but I have to say I'm most enamored with BabyStan! Don't ask me why. I just am! That boy & I have some notes to compare.

We started off by doing the traditional Stanley Dance! (Don't ask. If you're named Stanley then you already know about it.)

Then we went snout-to-snout to discuss our plans!

We spent a good part of the afternoon hanging out in the nature reserve that is their backyard. It felt so good to be out of the car and to be romping around with friends! (That Mumsie sure is a sweetpea too.)

Then Scruffy asked me to do the dance of the spastic goober, which I gladly did.

I have a feeling he was only trying to maneuver me into prime sniffing position.

I feel very at home here in the 'Burgh!

As we repaired indoors Scruffy took up a solitary pursuit...

as I tried to entice Stan to join me in a little wrasslin' match.

He told me he wasn't up for it right then, but maybe later. (Please notice Lacie in her lifeguard chair in the background, and Mumsie cleaning up one of Scruffy's peemails to me.)

We then took Mumsie & my girl out to the park to get some exercise (their mouths had already had more than enough exercise since neither of them hardly stop talking to catch a breath).

My girl was a little too excited about capturing this shot on film, so we're a bit blurry. We're quite the quartet.

Of course, no walk is complete for our hoomans without a little obstacle course. (Nodogs can hog-tie a hooman quite like these 3.)

By the time my girl said we were going to go nighty night I was ready to crash! I'm totally getting the royal treatment here. They even have my portrait hanging above my bed. Can you believe it? More fun today with Scruffy, Lacie & Stanley! I can't WAIT!

Goober love,

Safe journey to you and your girl. Can't wait to see what you get up to in NY!

Joe Stains said...

omdog you are sooo stinkin lucky!! We don't think your Mom looks like a pug at all dude!! Anyway, I cannot believe you were that close to the Lacie beast and there was no squawking?! How is that possible?? I sure do hope you continue to have a wonderful trip. Mom grew up around the 'Burgh and its a super nice place to visit.

Mango said...

Spooky the way your mom looks like that little pug. Have you checked her pedigree?

I see I got the wrong impression reading the Lacie Beast's post (yuh, all about her as usual). You had quite the romp with BabyStan.

Nice of the Scruffer to leave you a pee mail right in the house.

It looks like you and your girl are having a great trip, so far, Stanley! You need to send that one picture of the 4 of you arranged by height to whatever cell phone company that is that advertises "more bars in more places". They should use it in one of their commercials!
