Ole buzzard I haven't posted a picture of the Pugs in a while, so here they are. Front to back, we have Mabel, Toby, Winnie, and Sally. Mabel has been through a rough patch since she was diagnosed with diabetes in December, 2014. She weighed 17 pounds at the time, and for some unknown reason, she started losing weight, and kept losing. It got so bad that we had to take her to the University of Georgia Veterinary Training Hospital for diagnosis. At that point, she was down to 9.7 pounds. They found some odd things about her metabolism and put her on a hydrolyzed protein diet. She is now back up to 14.5 pounds, full of energy, and even her coat is better than it has EVER been. She is even growing hair in places she never had it before.

MeiDei So glad to hear Mabel's doing well! One thing about pugs (well, more than one ) their fur is so soft + they're so cute.

BirdsNest Pugs. Gotta love 'em. Thanks for the picture, it makes me smile. Glad Mabel is back to her "fighting weight". Hugs and kisses to all.

MeiDei Here's a "Find the Kitty" picture ... check out the one @ Coffee Klatch, it probably could go here as well. (Besides, exercise, reading & hobbies, puzzles/quizzes are recommended for the over 50 crowd to keep our brains working ).
Gram77 Well, this took a second to figure out what this was!! It seems that cats can bend in absolutely any direction.

MeiDei At first glance I thought it was a stuffed dog flopped over a chair - the black spot within the white as it's nose, the pink nose as it's mouth, the underarm tufts it's closed eyes & the majority of it's arms - it's ears. Can you see that too? Ah, to be so flexible & unconcerned about your surroundings!

StormCnter My cousin sent me this. If it's already appeared here, I apologize. If not, just share the laugh.
Gram77 I was blessed with a mother that taught me lots of stuff but the one real lesson was.........she never told me who not to like because of their skin color, religion or back ground rich or poor. I drew my own conclusions even when I was rather small. That's how to get along, not due to what you are told to do or like. Thanks, Mom.

MeiDei Same here Gram, but it was my Dad that made that clear. Served me well in school & life thereafter. Thankfully, my son is adverse to preconceived biases - just don't ever lie to him : )

FlatCityGirl I think I posted this photo long ago, before our Black Beauty [Maggie] crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Her buddy pictured there, Bobby, is the litter mate of the Bad Girl, Liz [who now resides in the country].
Since Maggie has been gone, I have become Bob's buddy; he has to have his head tucked into my neck to sleep at night. You can't tell me that animals don't feel loss. He and Maggie cuddled together every day of their lives; Maggie was four years old when Bobby came to us and she mothered him. He and Liz were barely old enough to have their eyes open, and Maggie took him to raise. He misses her. I'm the substitute.
