Forever Friday - The Story of ME!!!!

Hello Bloggers!! Thank you so much for the wonderful welcome!! Momma told me I would make lots of new friends and have a great big family, but wow!! I couldn't even begin to imagine!! I can't wait to share everything with all of you!!Link

So my story, at least what we know, isn't very long but here it is:

The weekend before the 4th of July, the nice people at Kentuckiana Pug Rescue got a call on their 800 number from a woman at a campground. She said she had been watching me for about a week, but I didn't seem to belong to anyone. So she asked if someone could meet her on her way home to pick me up. So my Foster Mom's daughter said she would do the pick up and take me to my foster home. Fast forward two weeks and Momma has lost her baby Lilo and is a bit lost herself. She gets a message from KPR saying that they have a two year old female that they think would be perfect for her. Now, momma will admit that she felt a little overwhelmed when she got the message. Lilo had only been gone three days. They told her there was another family looking at me and that they would let her know the status in a day or so.

That Monday, momma made arrangements with my Foster Mom to go meet me. My Foster Mom had named me Cuddle Bunny. Momma and her friends called me CB cause they weren't exactly overjoyed with Cuddle Bunny. One week after the Momma lost Lilo, she pulled into the driveway of my foster home with Aunt Vikki from The Pug Posse to meet me. Momma said she was nervous because she and Lilo had such an instant connection. She wondered if she would be able to really give me chance. My Foster Mom had told her that I was a people pug, but I was a bit leery of strangers. She said once I warmed up, I was quite the "Cuddle Bunny."

So with a heavy heart and a slightly narrow mind, Momma walked in to meet me. Once all the excitement over visitors died down, Momma came to find me in the living room. I had just gotten my spay the day before and was not feeling very princess like!

She found me in the living room trying to see what all the excitement was about. Momma picked me up to get a good look at me and before she could even think, I gave her big ole wet pug kiss!!! Aunt Vikki says she knew as soon as I kissed her that Momma was going to take me, but she had to let Momma figure it out on her own!

We all sat down on the couch and started getting to know each other. Aunt Vikki was right away with the flashes and I was not having it! I made it none to easy for her to get a good picture of me.

We sat and socialized and I proceeded to give Momma a steady supply of kisses. Apparently my unending supply of kisses worked, because Momma made a plan to have Aunt Vikki pick me up on that Friday so I could spend the weekend with Momma and see I how I did with Maddie and kitties. Momma got a few more pictures of me while I rested on my pillow and then kissed me good-bye.

Two days later, Aunt Vikki and Sam came to pick me up to hang with the Posse until Momma got off work.

I was so excited when she walked in!! I jumped right into her arms and started giving her lots of kisses!!! I let her know I was very happy to see her. Momma watched me play with the Posse for a little bit and then we headed to what would be my new home!

I have made myself quite comfortable in my new home. I don't bother the kitties and they don't bother me. Maddie and do pretty well together. We had a rough start as she thought I was going to be just like Lilo. Not so much!! I'm not much for the rough housing and the chewing on each other. I'm also not that into toys at the moment. So when Maddie gets all spazzy over a toy, I get a little irritated. The momma says I need to not be so growly, but I don't agree! I don't think there is anything wrong with being growly once in a while! Sometimes a girl just has to get growly to get what she wants!! ;)

So far I have been to one mini-meetup, one KPR event and I've done Petco duty once. Momma is looking for other ways to get me out and more socialized. I seem to have a problem with men in hats and with facial hair. And if they have both, look out!! Full fledged bark attack!!! Momma say with more socialization, that will hopefully go away. So if any of our Indy Pug Peeps have any ideas, Momma is open to hearing them!!

Momma says I'm special. Not always sure she means that in a good way, but I know she loves me.

She says like her and Lilo, we were meant to be. If the stars hadn't lined up just right, we wouldn't be together. I showed up when she needed me and I needed her!! I can't wait to see what my new life brings!!!

Hope I didn't put anyone to sleep!!! Sometimes a girl just needs to talk!! =) Thank you all for welcoming me into the family!!

Tata for now . . . .

Lotsa Love

Mia P.

Hey Mia. Just remember none of us pugs are perfect, even if we think we are. We are all a constant work in progress. Just keep a steady supply of kisses in your back pocket, pull them out whenever your mom needs them.
Remember the world maybe a little scary, but with your mom by your side, it's a little less. Oh and a yummy treat doesn't hurt either.

Mia is so very cute. I'm glad she found you! I know you will never not miss Lilo, but your heart will always have room for another. I hope she overcomes her fear of men with beards and hats...cause Santa has both!
