Spot Swap

 Last night we played spot swap on the couch. Usually Mario and Mack are on hu-mom or hu-dad's lap while they watch evening TV.
But tonight, we all started on the couch.  It  you look carefully at the 1st picture, you see Mack and Mario on the seat of the couch and my feet because I'm sleeping on the back.  

A little later, Mario got down and I decided to take his place.  (You can see how much bigger Mario is than me!)  

Then a little later, Mack moved to the doggie bed.  A few minutes later Mario joined him. Hu-mom was going to take a picture of Mack and Mario but just as she reached for her phone, Mario go up.  So I decided to move to the back of the couch again.  We finally ended up like this:  Mario on hu-mom's lap, Mack in the doggie bed and I stayed on the back of the couch.  

It's so hard to find the exact, perfect spot!

New Cousins!

Guess what?  We have 2 new cousins!  Hu-brother and his wife adopted two 31/2 month old kittens from our vet! They are still working on names, so for now they are boy and girl kitty.

They are staying at our house until hu-brother's condo is ready for them. They'll be here for a week or so with their new parents visiting everyday!  If you have been following our blog for a while, you might remember our other cousin, Mr. Meowgi, the big orange kitty.  He's going to be their new older brother.

Who's on the other side of the door?  It's Mario!

Mario can't wait to meet them, but hu-mom isn't letting that happen right away.  Mario can be overwhelming!

Welcome new little ones!

Hot Day, Cool Pugs

Summer days here in the Washington DC area have arrived.  Hot, hot humid days, too hot for pug meet ups outdoors.  Our meet up group usually meets at members backyards but hu-mom found a facility that hosts meet ups free of charge to groups!  

Dogtopia of Tysons Corner held our 1st indoor event of 2013.

They had a nice big, cool playroom for us to use.  There was lots of room for pug races, butt sniffing and general pug silliness!

Mario at home anxious to go to the meet up!

New guy arrived and everyone needs to check him out!

After two hours of fun, 15 pugs and lots of humans, everyone left exhausted.  Mack, Mario and Minnie slept all the way home. 

What a great way to spend a Sunday morning!

Stay cool.  It's going to be in the 90's here all week!

Our Daily Visit to the Dog Park

Mack and Minnie taking a break!

Hu-mom took a few pictures of us at the dog park this morning.  It was a beautiful day, temps in the 70's, low humidity and a nice breeze!  It's been really hot lately and everyone was enjoying the spring like weather.  A  lot of our friends came out today. 

Our dog park, Baron Cameron Dog Park, is part of the Fairfax County Virginia Park Authority and is a popular place all year long!  

Mario is playing with his friends, Angel and Moose.  Mario likes to chase doesn't like contact so much. We can't remember the puppy in the fronts name.  It seemed like it was spotted dog day at the park today. 

Mario sneaking up on Angel.

Moose taking Angel down by her leg!

Being an older gentleman, Mack observes most of the time and loves to sun bathe!  Minnie likes to run but like Mario, really doesn't like contact.  But Minnie and Mack love hanging out with the humans and getting attention and rubs!

We have lots of dog park friends, furry and human and look forward to seeing them everyday. Our friends come in all shapes, sizes and colors! Hu-mom promises she'll try to remember to take more pictures of us having fun. 

Hope everyone has fun today!

Tired Boys and Minnie

After a long weekend of high heat and activity, the boys were pooped this evening.  I think they're ready for a normal week again!  This bed is in the office and they always sleep with Mario on the left and Mack on the right!  

Minnie never sleeps with either of the boys.  She is a prima donna!

Thanks to Jen, who recently started following our blog, we found out about Mario's prior life before coming to us.  We won't go into details, but Mario is in a good place now!
Thanks, Jen.  We always wondered.

We hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July weekend!

Drools and licks,
Minnie, Mack and Mario

Mario's Good News and Happy 4th of July

Before Mario began his round of tests, the vet did another urine sample this AM.  Hu-mom collected his 1st pee of the day.  And it was good news, Mario's kidneys are able to concentrate his urine and it tested normal!!!  So no additional tests are needed.  Mario's drinking/peeing habits are behavior!  We just need to reduce his intake a little and he won't be needing to go so often and have accidents in the house. 

Mario was very happy to hear this until hu-mom told him that he is now cleared to get his vaccines that need to be updated.   He will be getting them today!

Hu-mom is also very happy that Mario is not sick!!!!!  Just a little wack-o when it comes to water. 

We hope everyone has a SAFE but fun 4th of July.  Minnie will be spending hers under the bed....

Minnie, Mack and Mario
