So, I mentioned we headed out to Abilene last week to move my sis-in-law back home. Even though the thought of moving someone in 100 degree weather was just as exciting a shopping spree to Target I decided we needed a little motivator so we took a small detour up to Possum Kingdom Lake and indulged in this view.
Oh, it was lovely friends. Good food, great view and a book in hand...I was set. Boy had to drag me kicking and screaming from the resort.
Now let me back up and tell you about what we like to call Pug's Adventures 2008. We had to do some planning for pug for this little shin dig so we weren't driving clear across the great state of Texas. In pug's 3 years of life he has never been boarded. We've always had to bribe a family member of friend to watch him. We're running out of family members and friends. I thought this time it would just be simpler to have him boarded and we could swing by on our way back from Abilene. I did some googling, but became a little overwhelmed when I began to see "LCD TVs at your dog's height", "granite accents throughout dog suites" and my favorite "$10 extra for a hug and a bed time story". Seriously! People read to their dogs. I think pug could manage a night without hearing "Goodnight Moon".
I got a recommendation of a boarder on the way so I gave them a call and they sounded just as sweet as can be so I made him a little doggy reservation. We brought him in the day of and each dog has there own little air conditioned stall with a doggy door to the outside. We hugged him good-bye (a free hug by the way) and boy sat him in his stall. Then break my heart and stomp on it, he sat looking at me with those sweet big bug eyes whimpering. We waited a bet trying to help him learn how to use a doggy door and bless his heart he couldn't figure it out. Oh the pug mama pain. I just felt terrible at the moment as we drove off. But the little guy couldn't have been happier to see us and he finally figured out how to push the door with his paw.
After Possum Kingdom, Abilene, the in-laws then my parents I thought he could use a bath so here is his looking all fancy in his bandanna. It's very Texas isn't it?
And so sorry for not mentioning squat about Big Brother. What a week it has been. I'm so glad to see Dan stay and is it just me or is anyone else not really sure who to side with this season? So much drama!
