Buddy's Holiday Spirit

It's only a few more weeks until Christmas and Buddy Fergurson is all wrapped up in the Spirit of the Season!

 First he helped his Mom unpacked his Christmas Stocking

Then he found some cute wallpaper to put on his computer!

He had a talk with his conscience about all the tasty treats he may
 be tempted by within the next few weeks.
  Buddy promised to use restraint.

Wrapping presents actually proved to be more difficult then planned, but Buddy did his best.
  He's a wiz with the scissors!

Needing a rest, Buddy also took a few minutes to look through his photo album, remembering
 the time his grandma made Santa Suits for himself, Kevin and Princess.
  Mom tried so hard to take a photo.
  Needless to say, it didn't quite work out the way she planned.
 Buddy gave up and walked off!

She did manage to get a cute shot of Princess though. 
 Boy, she's sure going to be missed this year.

All and all, Buddy is confident that his Christmas will be a good one.  He is very thankful for his family and all that he has in his life.
  So much so, he decided to cooperate with his mom and take a "real" Christmas
 photo this year this year!

Have a safe and Happy Holiday Season!

Buddy's Early Thanksgiving

Buddy Fergurson was pretty happy this morning that his mom decided to apply hand
 lotion to her hands - right before she picked up her bowl of oatmeal.

 ~ A feast suddenly fell from the sky ~
Appearing on the floor right before his "very" eyes!  

Buddy and Kevin hope that a feast will magically fall from the sky before the eyes and into the tummys of many others this Thanksgiving Holiday.
  As rescue pugs, they know it's important to be thankful for all you have
 and to generously help those who are without.

The Storm

When Buddy Fergurson first heard about Hurricane Sandy approaching his town, he watched his mom run around preparing for the storm, but he really didn't know what to expect.

It sure a wasn't much fun, but Buddy is very happy to report that everyone at 
his house and in his 
neighborhood is safe and doing fine. 

 Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those effected by Hurricane Sandy.  Buddy and his family also urge everyone to support the shelter and rescue programs that are in need of contributions, and also the pet adoption progarms that will also be brimming with rescues in need of donations and  homes after the storm.

Buddy's Telling Tail

Buddy Fergurson appears to be rather miffed that his mom found him so easily behind the kitchen table, before mischief could ensue.

Can't imagine what gave him away

Oh Buddy!

Buddy's Choice

Finding himself in the Vet's office yet again this year, Buddy Fergurson 
unfurls his adorable
 little "bat ears" and plans to fly away.

Problem is - which way?

Under Supervision

Buddy Fergurson doesn't seem to understand why his mom put the gate across the deck and said that he needs supervision in the backyard.  Sure, Kevin might not get along very well with that opossum she saw in the lawn this morning, but Buddy is always willing to make a new friend!

Sail On, Princess

Our little friend and companion Princess sailed off this week, after having been with us for over 12 of her 14.5 years.  A vortex of energy and enthusiasm, even during the years when she was no longer able to walk, she always managed to keep an eye on everything around her, and keep all those around her on their toes.
  Like so many rescue pets, in her early days she was a handful, but she eventually calmed down and settled into our family nicely.  After all, she quickly recognized that she had a job to do.  Two other pugs, two kitties, and two kids (and their friends) to keep track of.

That new mother of hers obviously needed help getting that art studio cleaned up... and someone needed to keep an eye on her dad's gardening -  And those neighbors?   All those neighbors who kept being so friendly to her "every" time she took a walk with Boris and Stewart... 
She had quite a lot to do!

Princess, Stewart and Boris (2 below 0 quickie walk)

And how have Buddy and Kevin reacted to their little Prin being MIA?

Well, Buddy has noticed that his little cuddle friend is no longer around - Kevin no longer has that messy food bowl to lick up after each meal.  And quite honestly, their world has grown smaller and 
 much less less interesting.

We miss you Prinny ~ 

see you around girlfriend ~


More about Princess and her adoption can be read on the side of the blog.
Below is also a video link, capturing some of her wheelchair adventures in her later years.
  A video, I'm happy to say, that has prompted and encouraged others to also purchase carts for 
their handicapped pets.

The Unwanted Dinner Guest

 Buddy Fergurson can't seem to understand why his mom keeps putting a gate up between him and his
sister Princess when they are eating.

 Pushy? Just a bit pushy there Bud?

Naaaaaaaaaaaa.... no way!

What a litter stinker you are....

Dreaming About.....

Facing another day of over 100 degree heat in the beautiful Garden State of New Jersey, Buddy Fergurson snuggles down in his nice comfortable bed and dreams about days to come and days that were...

Ahhh... trying to find a place to pee in the snow.

The New Pet

When Buddy Fergurson heard that there was a new pet in his Mom's art studio that
 would be sharing space with him, he was not worried.

There's always room for one more!

Snoozer's Anonymous?

It's the last day of June and Princess Fergurson is pretty disgusted with her ole pal Buddy.
Not one single post all month.
Sure, one snooze leads to another...but when they start to run together...into a full MONTH
then there's a problem.

Snoozers Anonymous...
maybe that's the answer

No Comment

When asked about his most recent surgery, the 2nd in less than 2 weeks, Buddy Fergurson responded with a firm - "No comment, I'm resting".  

What happened you might ask?
In a nut shell -

- Buddy's mom takes him to the Vet because his neck seems to be hurting. 

- During the office visit the Vet points out that Buddy is due for his Senior Wellness Exam - which all dogs should have starting at the age of 7.

- The ultrasound from the wellness exam reveals that Buddy has bladder stones, the kind that cannot be dissolved by medication, so he is scheduled for surgery to remove the stones before they become lodged in his urinary tract.

- Buddy is recovering from his bladder stone stone surgery, but his mom still thinks that something is "just not quite right".  She can't put her finger on it, and neither can the Vet... until he
decides to look around on Buddy's tummy further up from the bladder with the ultrasound.  That's when he discovers 2 tumors on Buddy's spleen.  

-The Vet describes the situation as a 'ticking time bomb", so Buddy has surgery again, a few days later, this time to remove his spleen.

Buddy is resting and getting along just fine!  We'll have to see what the results are from the biopsy later this week.

Moral of the story...

One thing leads to another.... Thank goodness for Senior Wellness Exams because both of these conditions would probably have gone unnoticed until they were critical.

Get Well Buddy!

If it seems like Buddy Fergruson has been kind of quiet lately, he's been resting up from the surgery he had earlier this week.  A few weeks ago during his routine Senior Wellness Screening (which starts at age 7), the Vet found that Buddy had bladder stones.  He had them removed on Monday and seems to be doing fine - although he hasn't been very cooperative taking his antibiotic. (his mom will probably be switching to a liquid soon).  Feel better Buddy!

Spring Gardening With Buddy

 Gardening duties have taken up much of Buddy Fergurson's spare time recently.
As you know - it's quite a responsibility.

First Buddy has to get his directions for the day directly from the boss.

Checking on that rosemary plant.  OK, it looks fine.

Reporting back - 
oops...guess she fell asleep.

That Kevin
All he wants to do is play!

It's hard to find good help when you need it.
At least my mom is helping me pull weeds and my dad is mowing.
Otherwise I'd be sunk!

Buddy Visits the Vet

Buddy Fergurson does not understand why his mom made him go visit the Vet 
this afternoon.
So what if he's limping, not wanting to walk, or play the "shoe game".

 Give a guy a break already.....

Ha!  Pinched neck will do it every time.  A shot, a prescription for an 
anti-inflammatory and Bud is set to go... good as new!

Buddy Regrets to Inform you...

It's with a heavy heart that Buddy Fergurson makes the decision to inform his readers 
that he will no longer be writing his blog.

Ha Ha
Just kidding!
April Fools!
You guys are still stuck with me!

The Spring Cleanse

It's 6am, the first day of Spring - Buddy Fergurson and his brother Kevin calmly wait for their very sleepy, and very patient, mother to start the laundry.   It seems that Buddy took the idea of a "Spring Cleanse" a bit too literally and threw up in bed this morning.  Of course Buddy doesn't really understand what the problem least it didn't come out the other end!      ~ Oh Buddy ~
