Poley – Peanuts = Happy Family
Well, Napoleon is doing great. His surgery went well and he’s pretty much recooperated and doing good. He was a little out-of-it on Saturday (day after surgery) and slept all day long, but now he’s back to his normal self. Here’s apicture of him looking silly and goofy. He goes back on April 1st to have his stitches removed, but other than that he’s all set for the next year.
This picture was captured while we were playing and his ear is flipped back. So cute! Oh, and his ear mites are all gone…the doctor is pleased with his weight, his growth, this health was perfect, except the vet said he had excessive ear wax, so I was given this ear solution to clean out his ears weekly. Funny. Napoleon has TONS of ear wax and Rukia barely ever has any.
Oh, and thanks to the suggestion of green beans as treats (sorry…can’t remember who suggested it or where I read it). I thawed out a bag of them and now we use them as training treats – they’re healthy, they aid in digestion (ruffage) and totally inexpensive. Also, the puggies L-O-V-E them. I highly recommend them to all you dog owners out there! When we went on a walk yesterday, I had a bag of them in my pocket and we used them quite effectively – we’re trying to teach them “heel” but it’s not going that well. As you know…pugs can be quite willful when they don’t want to do something. And they really prefer running crazy wild on the leash. The idea of walking sedately at my side seems to be TOO MUCH for them to comprehend.
Here’s a picture of Ruki and I posing for the camera. Aren’t we hams? I love my little girl and she’s still so small. At her age, Poley was already like 8 lbs. Whereas Rukia is only 5 lbs. I think she’s just going to be smaller than him. However, I have noticed recently that her legs are getting unusually long so I think she’s about to have a growth spurt. Hooray!
In other news, we are still in love with the game “Rockband” and are quite obsessed with it. We were inducted into the Hall of Fame the other day, but now we’re working on completing all the cities in the game for acheivements and also, it’s a lot of fun! It can be challenging at times, but that’s part of the fun and it makes it a game as apposed to a glorified karaoke machine.
And for a parting shot, here is Terry on the couch with the puggies. You can see Poley in his favorite spot (on top of the couch). And Rukia is in her favorite spot – her Daddy’s arms.
