A few days ago, Mom told us some startling news......we were getting a visitor.
Not just for a day or two, but for a while.  
"How long?"  we asked........
"As long as it takes" Mom said.

Mom explained that there was a sad pug out there who needed a safe place to be.  
She's a puppy mill survivor.  
A what?  
What's a puppy mill?
A place that's not good for dogs.  
Where there are only cages,  and no families, or playing, or even names.
No belly rubs or treats.
The only important thing is making new puppies.

So when Mom heard that Kentukiana Pug Rescue needed some more foster homes, she agreed to keep a pug-in-need safe till a new home could be found.

A few hours later:

OK, it was really 2 days.
Mom gave us a big pep talk about being nice to thte new kid in tow.
Here's a picture of the official
"Pug Welcoming Committee"

The Foo really enjoys her nightly glass or Pinot Grigio.

And here she is!
Poor Ruby was shaking in Mr. KPR's arms.

Much butt sniffing ensued, and we showed her our backyard.
And then our deck, and finally inside the house.
Ruby was a wreck, and could not stop shaking, even when Mom was holding her.

In the past 4 days, she's gotten more comfortable around our house.
At first, she clained a spot on the carpet and wouldn't budge.  Everytime Mom picked her up to try to get her to drink, eat or pee, she ran right back to her "spot". So Mom put a dog bed down for her.

We are trying not to give her the cold paw, but boy, is she weird!   She doesn't know her own name!   
 And she doesn't know how to go for a walk on a leash.  She scares herself when she shakes her own tags.  She jumps everytime theres a loud noise.  And she wouldn't eat for a whole day. (now that's crazy!)  She doesn't know how to play.
She likes to jump around, sniff stuff and generally act strange.   During nap time. 
After four days she is starting to get a bit tired.

But she is good at making Mom a little crazy.
Here's a shot of us messing with Mom when she was trying to take a picture of us all.
Ha, Ha...........

At least she snores just like us!

She is starting be kinda fun to be around,
but we really hope she can find a forever home soon.

Gen & the Foo
and Ruby too!
