The Christmas Picture

Yes, when your photo possibilities are looking bleak,
bribery can be a wonderful thing ~ 
Right Buddy?

From all of us to all of you,
Buddy, Kevin and Franky Fergurson
wish you a
 wonderful Holiday Season!

The Unified Front

With all the political shenanigans that have recently been filling the news, 
Buddy Fergurson can't help but wonder why humans find it so hard to figure out 
that it IS possible for one to function successfully within a group, while still working to further 
their own agenda.

Take this recent weekday morning photo for example.  
Buddy, along with Kevin and Franky, 
have all presented a unified front as they patiently wait for their dad to finish his shower 
and take them for their walk.  
BUT, individual motives are actually afoot.  
Franky can't wait to get back from his walk, which he really thinks he can do without, 
so he can snuggle down and resume his nap...
which his mom just interrupted with the camera.  

Kevin is on high alert for the garbage truck.  
He spotted the cans out the front window, so he's all set to announce 
the truck's arrival
and defend his home territory when it appears.
It doesn't seem to matter that it's already been there.
Any passing truck will do.

And Buddy?  
Buddy knows after that after their walk, Buddy's mom will usually 
make toast or heat up a muffin. 
So that means crumbs.  
And in addition to crumbs, if she's really in a generous mood
-which she normally is-
that means she will share a bite of it with him.
(even though his dad will tell her not to)
AND, if she's not too sleepy, 
she may even put jam on that muffin 
and that would be even better!  

Unified front.  
Works every time... 
and everyone wins in the end!

Always Room For One More

Buddy Fergurson considers himself pretty lucky that he has a dad with a magical lap that seems to expand for any pet that happens upon it.
This, of course, makes things more comfy for everyone, which is particularly important since the Cardinals are in the playoffs, and football and hockey are starting.

Well, Franky still has a few things to work out with the comfy part...

Fun and (Pug) Games

When asked about his weekend with his new brother Franky, Buddy Fergurson decided he
would provide the short abbreviated version -
which went something like this:

Franky goes under the bed
Buddy goes under the bed
Franky comes out from under the bed
Buddy, gets stuck under the bed.

 I'd smile too, Franky!

Buddy and Kevin Welcome Their New Brother Franky

It was quite a weekend!

Buddy Fergurson's plans for a quiet Labor Day came to an abrupt end when his parents told him that he would be going on an exciting journey in the car to possibly adopt a new brother for him!

It seems his mom had been secretly scrolling through her Facebook feed a few weeks earlier and saw that Pug Planet Rescue (who she had adopted Kevin from), had published a post from their friends at Animal Allies about handsome young man named Milo who really really needed a new home.  Something about his sweet little face connected instantly with Buddy's mom, she set the application process in motion, and the next thing Buddy knew he found himself in the car with Kevin, going to meet the little guy that they had read so much about!

Buddy's mom was just delighted that the car ride had been uneventful, and when they arrived Milo came right outside to meet them!  After a fast circle, smell and pee... Buddy, Kevin and Milo quickly created their own mutual admiration society and set off to patrol in rescue mom Linda's back yard.
  Buddy's dad kept a watchful eye, his mom filled out the necessary paperwork, and Milo soon found himself with two new brothers!

A new name was in order, so Milo became Cecil....who then... became Franky (with a y) as Buddy heard his mom tell her friends!

Back home, Buddy and Kevin showed Franky all their favorite "spots" in the backyard.

Buddy's sister Molly came over and showed Franky the new bed that 
mom had bought just for him!

Kevin then introduced Franky all of his (other) favorite places to sleep...

.... including his dad's lap!

Then Buddy's big brother Adam came to meet Franky! 

And after helping Adam catch up on some important reading.... Franky settled right on 
in to his new family!

We're all very happy to have you with us Franky, and we already love you to pieces!

The Grill Master

Fancying himself a Master of the Grill, Buddy Fergurson recently became a bit TOO
interested in the process...often finding himself in unwise and compromising positions
behind and under the apparatus.


Yep, sometime living so close to a PETCO can definitely have a downside ~

The Product Test

Buddy and Kevin Fergurson have resumed their
jobs of rigorously testing all pet products that come into their home.
Noticing that this bed, for example, has the potential to
become reversible.
Kevin has also discovered that the stuffing has the option
to be removed... but that's a story for a different day.

The Cleaner

Buddy Fergurson can't understand why his mom is getting frustrated with him.
  He's obviously is a fabulous helper, AND has such a flair for pantry cleaning.
  No fallen chip ever goes unattended under his watchful eye!
So what if it's only the 7th time in less then an hour that
he's gotten stuck under the step stool...
things happen ~

Happy Birthday Kevin!

Not another May Birthday!!

Buddy Fergurson was just more then a little surprised this morning when his Mom told him that today was brother Kevin's Birthday.  Of  course, she did know it either, until she received a Birthday greeting for Kevin in her email this morning from the Vet's Office!

Like Buddy, Kevin is a rescue and no one has ever been quite sure when his actual Birthday is.

Oh well, whenever your Birthday is Kevin, we love you and we're 
so glad you are part of our family!
Maybe you'll even find it in your heart to share an extra apple slice with Buddy today
and make it a "real" party!

April Showers

At the moment, Buddy Fergurson is not finding his brother
Kevin particularly amusing ~

Rub a dub dub
Two pugs in a tub

The Valen Buddy

Buddy Fergurson insists that he will be his Mom's Valen Buddy forever and ever...

Even if she does insist on putting a silly ribbon him today.

Hopefully next year, she'll forget.
But somehow I doubt it ~

Enjoy your Valentine's Day!

Buddy's Bedtime Story

... and then with smiling hearts and minds,
 they closed their eyes and dreamed of
 green grass,
 and all of their wonderful new friends to come!

   the end

He's.... faster then a speeding bullet.

More powerful then a locomotive

 Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound

Look!  In the's a bird

It's a plane

 It's a ... tough job trying to be a superhero

But someBuddy has to do it!

Buddy Goes Back to Work

It's the first work day of the New Year and Buddy Fergurson,
and his brother Kevin, 
set forth to plan their day. 

Number 1 - Keep an eye on Buddy's shoe
Number 2 - Take a rest from keeping an eye on Buddy's shoe

It's shaping up to be a long month ~
