Friday Funnies ~ R-Chee the Air Freshener!


Happy Friday everyone!

It is me... R-Chee!

Guess where I am today?

Yep!

The SPA!


My momma said it was time to go blow some bubbles together...

Little did I know they would be at me!


I feel like I am in in the car wash without the car!

First comes the water sprayer thingy!

Then the suds and lathering part!

That actually was FUN!

My Pug Tail was wagging the whole time during my "bubbly massage". :)


Then the rinsing again and the SHAKE!

*Note to Self...that is a good way to get momma and dad all wet too!*


Now for the dry cycle!




OY!


...and the final step was the furminator!

Now a nap is in order while I waft the scent of Lavender throughout the room!

I am doubling as an air freshener today!

What are you up to this weekend?

I plan on rebuilding my beloved pug smells! :)

My New Pug Doll ~ I LOVE to put a Little Pug in everything I do!


Happy Wednesday everyone!

I just had so much FUN making myself a new little pug doll!

I adapted a vintage dog pattern that I purchased on etsy, and made it puggy!



I followed the pattern for the little yellow dog for the shape of the body, but then I adapted the ears, face, tail and head positioning to make it my own creation.







Ta Da!

A few scraps of fleece, some stuffing, thread and an afternoon created a whole lot of FUN!

Don't ever be afraid of starting something and then going rogue on an art project, recipe, idea or story to follow your whimsy!

It is your gift to yourself and others around you!

It is your vision, your inner joy ~ your special touch that makes life magical!

The Bummlie Report ~ The Bummlies are Hopping with Glee!


Happy Monday everyone!

Weeee!

The Bummlies are so Happy!

They are hopping out of the Etsy Shop faster than I can make them!

I am having so much FUN making them for all of you!

Here are some new Bear and Bunny Bummlies for you to meet & adopt!

Meet Pauly 
The Bear Bummlie


He has bear paw prints all over his jammies!


Meet Eli
The Bear Bummlie


He has elephants romping all over his deep purple jammies!


Meet Tyberius!
The Bear Bummlie


He is super cool in his blue & white tye dye jammies!



Meet Joey 
The Bunny Bummlie


He loves to make you smile in his jester jammies!



Meet Lenny!
The Bunny Bummlie


He is all gassed up and ready to roll in his decked out truck jammies!

Each Bummlie is one of a kind!

He or she comes to you with his or her very own name, personality & smile to share with you & your family on your exciting adventures together!

The Bummlies are so unique that once they are gone... they are gone.

New faces, new names, new colors & prints will be born as each one is quickly adopted and starting his or her new life with you!

So to avoid any disappointment...

R-Chee's advice is to purchase a Bummlie when one grabs your heart !

He will personally dance with your Bummlie, package him or her up and send them on their way to you!

The Bummlies are having so much FUN with all of you that they just cannot contain their glee!

They are bursting at the seams with excitement, so R-Chee & I have built a special gallery where they can Show & Tell all of their stories with you!

It is called The Bummlie Gallery and it's new home is


You may ask...

What are The Bummlies?

The Bummlies are my new line of Stuffing-Free Dog Toys for you to enjoy!

The Bummlie Gallery is a storyboard of FUN from Bummlies who have been adopted by families all over the world!

They are reporting back with adventures filled with LOVE!

You can adopt your special Bummlie today in our 

Etsy shop... 


Each Bummlie sends the message of LOVE both from his front chest and his back "bum"! :)

Handmade of soft fleece, a solid piece of terry cloth stuffing, thread and a lot of LOVE... 

Each Bummlie is unique & the perfect buddy for both dogs and kids!

They are machine washable and if opened by your 4 footed kid, they will not leave stuffing everywhere since they are safely stuffed with a terry cloth towel section that is one solid, safe piece that makes your Bear Bummlie even more huggable!

They are approximately 10" high from tip of ears to toes and 8 " across from paw to paw.

I happily cut, sew, hand embroider and stuff each doll for you to enjoy.

Please check out the new gallery and Pug Notes etsy shop often as they are both bursting at the seams with new Bummlies and photos everyday!

Thank you for always playing with us!

Friday Funnies ~ Sports Night with Jimmie!



Happy Friday everyone!

It is me...
Jimmie!

Yay!

It is a Holiday Weekend and time to PLAY!


Two of my favorite things to say are...

"Come Here Archie... You are so CUTE!"

and

"Come and Play with me Archie!"

I have been saying this to Archie all day but, he is a little bit worried about playing with me.

Don't tell anyone, but I think my pug, Archie, is part chicken, and even though I am a parakeet, I am more of a doggie than he is!

I''ll show you what I mean...

I love to play ball...

while Archie would rather be a cheerleader on the side lines.

and I love to play frisbee!

Archie just sits & watches it fly over his head and then looks at you like a pug statue wondering who is going to go and get it.

Funny little guy!

He has a lot to learn! :) 

Well... I will train him to play games.

We have all weekend to play!

Tee hee!

What are you all up to this weekend?

Please leave us a note and tell us all about it!

We cannot wait to hear!

Friday Funnies ~ R-Chee is Ready for Vegas Baby!


Happy Friday everyone!

It is me... 
R-Chee!

My pawrents are smiling because they know a secret about me!

They say they knew it from the second they met me when I was just a baby!

My dad calls it my "tell" and that I would never be a good "poker player" since it always gives me away!

They can read me like an open book!

I used to think they were mind readers, but now I know they do not have special powers, I am just a special pug. :)

Do you want to guess what my "tell" is?

What do all of these photos have in common?












Can you see it?

They say when I am unsure about something my body language gives me away!

Most puggies straighten their tails when they are thinking hard or are unsure about something.  I only do that when I am sleeping. :)

Instead, when I am thinking, I bend my wrist on my front paw!


Humph!

Now everyone knows how to read my mind!

I know!

I'll just "shuffle" all the thoughts rattling around in there and everyone will be as confused as me! :)

Who said I wasn't one smart puggy?

See...
I'm a poker puggy genius!
