Have question about my Pug:
First off, I want you to know that you’re reading an Award-Winning Blog. I knew my efforts wouldn’t go unappreciated for long…and I was right. Just recently, I won two blogging “awards” and I want to take this opportunity to thank them… before I forget, and then they start talking about me behind my back and referring to me as “that ungrateful Nevis person”. Sooo…Rusty, thank-you for the award, I’m touched. AND, thank-you Weeny & Daisy for your award….I’m honored! 🙂 I’m also putting up pictures of said awards so everyone can look at them, admire them and totally be jealous of me.
Also, have you heard about this internet phenomenon called “Pay It Forward”..? Well, it’s basically this thing where you give (the first three respondents to your post) a handmade gift, and then they have to in return, give away three gifts, and so on. Does that make sense? Well, I responded to my bloggy friend, Clover’s Adventures, and I should be getting a gift from her. I’m SO excited about that…I wonder what I’ll get? Of course, this also means that I have to “Pay It Forward” to three people on my blog – so – that’s you guys. If you’re reading this, I’ll send three of you something handmade. But, you also have to do it on your blog in return. Get the rules? Be one of the first three people to post to my blog and say “I’m In!!!” and you’ll win…!
Let’s see, what else has been going on? My job is sending me to Tampa for some training for a few days during the week of January 28th. I love going to new places but it will be hard to be apart from Terry and Poley. I will miss them! I wish Terry could come with me but he can’t really get the time off work, unfortunately. But I did some research on the city and it looks really pretty! It should be as fun as a business trip can be.
Also, work required me to become a “Notary” for the State of Georgia because aparently I’ll need to notarize things as a part of my job. So I spent the first few hours of my day yesterday waiting in line at the courthouse getting sworn in and made official. So now I’m completely legit and I have this cool stamp with my name on it. I’ve amused myself by notarizing post-it notes, emails, paper air planes, etc around the office. I’m lucky they put up with my shenanigans.
Speaking of shenanigans, what’s going on with Napoleon? Not much new, really. He climbed on of Terry the other day & I took a picture. Isn’t he adorable!? Poley is starting to get lighter in color and loose his dark trace down his spine. It’s so fun to watch him get bigger! You know, that reminds me of a problem we’re having with him and I don’t know if it’s a Napoleon-issue or a Pug-issue…
Well, when we feed him, he will put his paws in his bowl and flick all the food onto the ground and then eat it off the ground. Or sometimes not eat it at all. I think he’s playing with it, more than anything. Every day we come home and he’ll have flung his food all over his crate! And I’m not sure it’s a “seperation anxiety” thing, because he’ll do it even when we’re home. It’s like he just likes pushing his food onto the ground and eating it there. Is this a pug issue? Is the food bowl possibly not the easiset thing for him to eat out of? I don’t think it’s that, because it’s only about maybe 1 inch tall and rather shallow. Click here for a picture of it. I specifically chose it because it was small and shallow. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
