When you spend weeks trolling Petfinder and various animal shelter sites it should come as no surprise that you find two dogs that you MUST HAVE! But it was a surprise – a big surprise!
The short version :
On Wednesday evening I had a Facebook alert from D#1 about two little pugs at a shelter in western New York. By noon on Thursday I got a call telling me I was approved to adopt them! and 3 hours later I was on the road for a 2 day, 12 hour drive to pick them up!! whew, it was crazy, wonderful and dizzying!! So many plans had to be quickly made (hotels, copilots, dog care for Poe) and so many plans had to be broken (no Vogue Live, no walk in Central Park, no birthday slumber party with Cara! sorry pals!)
Luckily I was not alone on this adventure — Kathleen was up for a spontaneous road trip and it was a good thing too since these little girls spent the entire car trip home sitting on her lap! They are so energetic (don’t let all the napping fool you) that they were able to leap from the back seat to the front seat despite the canvas dog barrier I have.
The bad news is that I may never knit again — my lap is constantly full of pugs! I KNOW, I KNOW I need to set limits … but seriously ….. look at this ….
while there may be no knitting to show, we have been busy on social media (I can manage to use my phone even with all three on top of me!). Officially The Pug Shack on Instagram, Facebook and their own www.thepugshack.love (which leads right here since purlingswine may end up being a 24/7 pug blog!)
Congratulations on the new additions. The girls are absolutely adorable. Names, please? (I did the same thing with 2 kitten brothers last year. It was a good move for all of us and I’m sure it will be for all of you, too. )
Awww thanks Joan! We have named them Hyacinth & Violet :)
They already love you! Such cute little wrinkly brows.
Congratulations. They look adorable.
