I was checking my email when I noticed a couple of familiar faces looking at me from my Cute Overload email.

It was CSP & Zoe! Apparently someone took our America’s Funniest Video submission and edited it down to a GIF. It was even chosen for GIF of the week. CSP keeps saying “I can’t believe I’m GIFT of the week!”
Check it out! (you may have to click on it to get it to animate)You know, eventually all this fame will go to CSP’s head. Zoe’s keeping it real though, she’s gangsta like that.
Today is my sweet baby Kiki’s 8th birthday! I can’t believe it was 8 years ago we brought home this little nugget. She is definitely the queen of our house. She runs this joint like a boss. IKEA Li MeiFun grew up into a gorgeous little puggie girl!
Molly & Zoe relaxing together. Being a pug is tough!
One of my MIL’s coworkers made her these origami pugs. 2 black ones and a fawn just like her grandpugs Kiki, Molly & Zoe! So cute!
Went to get ready for bed last night and found this. You think Zoe’s still got some puppy in her?
Kiki is allergic to grass. She has to take a very large pill every other day. These pills are more expensive than any pill I take. Getting them down her tiny, obstinate throat has been a challenge the likes of which I’ve never encountered. We’ve tried EVERYTHING. Hot dogs, peanut butter, ham, tuna, turkey, cheeses of all varieties, marshmallows, basic shoving it down her throat, etc. The problem is that the pill stinks. So what we camouflage it with has to outstink the pill but still be small enough for her to swallow it because if she bites it it explodes and the liquid is very bitter and causes her to foam at the mouth and gag. It’s quite a production.
I went to my Twitter and Facebook friends a while back and asked for help. Some people (forgive me but I can’t remember to whom [who?] goes the credit) suggested Pill Pockets. We finally found them at Petco. As CSP says “Boy, they sure know what to charge for these!” To which I reply “Yes, because someone tells them”. He loves that. We paid the painful $12 for an 8 oz bag of approximately 30 pill pockets and went home to try one out. Lord, please let this work I prayed as I molded the pill pocket around her pill. It seemed HUGE to me and it took her a while to get it down but SHE GOT IT DOWN. On her own! With no crying or cursing! The heavens parted and the angels sang!
There have been some changes to the first pill pocket usage. 1. Those suckers are BIG. So now I just pull it apart and mold the stuff around her pill so she won’t have such a big thing to swallow. Works like a charm. Plus, at 40 cents a piece plus tax this way makes it last longer. Kiki now actually comes running when I say the word “pill” or shake her pill bottle. Before it was a total spy mission. CSP would have to get the pill out of the wrapper thingy and pass it to me on the sly. We’d have to wait an hour before she’d stop being suspicious enough to come close enough to us to give her the treat wrapped pill. But now? Now I want to sing the praises of the Pill Pocket! Everyone who has to give a dog a pill should buy these things! And Pill Pocket people? Kiki will never not be allergic and on meds so if you’d like to comp me a few bags I’d be forever grateful!
I caught CSP in bed with another woman.
Short. Black hair. Totally the opposite of me.
She was just laying there, in the crook of his arm. Looking at me like she belonged there and I was the intruder.
Well, I wasn’t going to let her get away with snaking in on my man like that. I pulled out my phone and snapped a couple pictures before she could move.
3 pug beds
2 human beds
1 sectional sofa
Tons of places for the pugs to sleep yet Molly & Zoe prefer to pile up together: I love how they make a little upside down heart!
You’d think after two and a half years on this earth that Zoe would be able to figure out a way to carry her toys. She LOVES empty cups (this is a pudding cup). But she carries them in such a way that her eyes are covered. She runs into things when she carries them around. Kills me. So fun to watch!
Molly loves her Daddy. LOVES. She likes to perch on his shoulder very territorially and gives me to stink eye. Back off woman, this is my man. I know if she could talk she would tell me this. Note CSP’s new specs.
