Isn't it cute? I found the Fuzzy Nation website so I could share it with you too! I just could not wait until Tuesday to share it. You can never have too many pug items!
Have a wonderful weekend! Emmitt is having a great time with Melanie, Mark and Moe. We will have lots of pictures to share next week!

It was 1996, and I just opened my mobile frame shop. I was at a customer's house and what bounced in to the room, but 2 roly poly pugs. they were hyper and smiling and ran right over to me and gave me lots of hugs and kisses. I brought Fred over the next day to meet them.
2) What made you get a Pug?
After that, we did our research and learned all about pugs. Then, it was just a matter of finding one! The rest is history!
Emmitt has taught me so much, but the one thing he has really showed me over the years is how to stay in the moment and to be happy there. It is a great feeling place, because everything is always well and there are no worries right in that moment.

Roxy reminded us to tell people around us how much we love and appreciate them. It made me realize how much I think about it everyday, but maybe do not take the time to actually express it outloud.
Here is Emmitt singing outloud how much we love and appreciate you.
Thank you so much for taking the time to come and visit us today.
Our friends Diana and Roxy both recently gave us awards. Thank you soooooo much! You absolutely made our day!
Each award came with slightly different directions to spread the fun, so I am going to combine the two and give the awards (you get to choose the artwork) to friends who stop by and visit us almost everyday and say hello. Your comments mean the world to us!
linda, manon, roxy, diana, fannie, nancy, leslie, sandy, nichol, nevis, rachel, maggie & mitch, lisa, wendy, anne, jill, rebecca, moira, karine, tere, liz & henri, ruth, clover, jamie, leann, peng peng, marianne, tara, jen and francis.
Have a wonderful day everyone!

I am so excited to report that I have successfully completed the Pug Notes conversion over to Expression Web.
I have updated the look a bit and changed the navigation to match the look of Dog Art Studio.
It is cleaner on the front-end screens for the user and so easy for me to manage and update on the back-end. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I am so glad I pushed through the discomfort of learning a new software program. It was totally worth it!
I also purchase the domain www.pugartstudio.com yesterday and redirected it to Pug Notes.
I feel I have built a brand name with the name Pug Notes, but this will give me the flexibility to change the name one day if I decide to. :)
It is almost the weekend and Emmitt asked if I would post one of his favorite videos of himself. It was recorded on superfast speed and Emmitt thinks if he could practice to match this in real life, he could win a gold medal in nose licking. :)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Emmitt loves mornings too. He wakes up every morning at 5:30 am singing and dancing for breakfast. I am a morning person, so I am eager to start my day too. After breakfast we go up to the office and Emmitt shows his joy for having a full tummy by licking his nose. He follows me around the house licking his nose, he sits next to me licking his nose and he sits under my desk licking his nose until he poops himself out and takes a nap.
Here is Emmitt in action. :)
Have a wonderful day!

I feel very honored to have been included in a wonderful artist collaboration called Dogs Rule.
Jill Beninto put together a wonderful project and invited 12 other artists to each make 14 book pages with the theme of Dogs Rule to create 14 Fat Books to be bound and received by each artist and a 14th book to be auctioned off on Ebay on November 15th to raise money for Bernie Berlin's A Place to Bark to raise money for her amazing shelter that she runs for all breeds of dogs in TN. Jill also contacted The Bark Magazine and they are going to run a spread on our project in the September 2008 issue!
