ohio pug rescue reunion

Both of our pugs are rescue dogs. We got our first one, Gomez, directly from the Ohio Pug Rescue. Every year we pack up the pugs and head to Columbus for an annual rescue dog reunion. There's lots of contests, dog costumes, and of course, more pugs than seems possible. 

This year, Cooper defended his title as Ohio's Tallest Pug (he's a beast, and this just proves it). Then in a move that surprised no one, Gomez became King of the Pugs. Seriously. He's been strutting around the house ever since. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of him in his crown, as it was at the end of the day, and I had already packed up the camera. Actually, I'm not going to display any pictures of my dogs, as I see them every day, and they didn't really do anything cuter than usual yesterday.

Yes, it's a Mer-Pug.

baby ducks! and a gnome named Norbert

I never thought I'd grow up to be the kind of person that would put a gnome in her garden. Actually, I never thought I'd grow up to have a garden—not that it's an impressive one or anything... But it's spring. The flowers are blooming, the duckies are procreating, and I'm placing lawn ornaments around my house. It's amazing what a little dose of 80 degree weather will do for your spirits.

He's known to all the kids in the neighborhood as "that guy who plays guitar on the porch". Yeah, I'm married to a local celebrity.
