I've been a stay at home mom for six months. Man has the time flown by! If you are a regular reader (i love you!) you know that I'm a mama to two adorable little boys and one naughty but beautiful little girl pug named Beulah. This isn't the first post about the pug. Check out http://mommyohhhh.weebly.com/1/post/2013/11/the-pug-life-chapter-1.html if you aren't familiar with my relationship with her. In these past 6 months I've learned several things about Beulah. They are as follows:
#1. She hates IRON MAN. With a passion. He doesn't even belong to her but she will sniff him out to torture him. He talks. She really doesn't like that.
#2. She stalks the baby and tries to steal his food. (banana peels aren't usually on my floor!)
#3. She is down with snuggling any time
#4. She likes the finer things in life: fresh out of the dryer aden + anais baby linens.
#5. She likes to nap with my oldest son. You know- the one that makes Darth Vader noises in her face. She never wants to nap with me... unless we are the only people home...
#6. She thinks UPS, Fed-ex, the girlscouts, the lawn guy, the candidate asking for our vote and the neighbor delivering a botched mail delivery are all trying to kill us. Mow-hawk up and everything.
#7. She likes to go outside about 73 times a day. She tip-toes in the rain and snow while she secures the perimeter.
#8. She can nap upwards of 22 hours a day
#9. She's like a shark at meal time- circling the baby's high chair
#10 She totally gets on the table when we aren't home. It's glass. I see pug prints. I'm no Colombo but she's the only animal in the house.
#11. While she has a dog bed, she also makes herself at home and uses any ole surface she likes when it's nap time (one of her nap-times). Here she is on the baby's prized Brobee pillow.
#12. Starting around 5:15- she sits on guard looking at the door waiting for Hot Husband (her boyfriend) to get home.
#13. I don't know what we'd do without her. It brings a tear to my eye to even type that. My three boys are so in love with her that we'd be devastated if something happened to her.
She is AWESOME with our kids. If you are thinking about getting a dog- call your local pug rescue folks. You won't regret it. They will hook you up and I bet you will fall madly in love the way we have. (even if you are said pug's 4th or 5th favorite person in the world) You can probably expect your pug to require you to treat him/her like royalty~ but they are royalty. You'll catch on soon.
Thanks for reading pretty people. Like MommyOhhhh on facebook if you haven't already. (also notable that autocorrect sometimes changes pug to pig.)
