Mommy's busy time off...

Hi! Jasmine here today. I haven't posted in a while and Ernie is busy barking at Eddie and Eli, so here I am! Mommy took some time off from work and we thought it would be very nice to have her home to snuggle with, but she didn't snuggle enough for our liking! She still had work (yes, actual work on her time off) to do because she doesn't have anyone to back her up at work. Good thing she could do the work at home on the computer! Friday was Sam's first day of Spring Break, so he's been home too. We've just been hanging out waiting for snuggles...
Mommy finally got a really good picture of Eddie...he doesn't look all sad and pathetic...just a little pathetic :-)
Then he crashed on the rug in the kitchen...
Gus discovered his new favorite toy...a plastic squeaky hot dog. He plays with it constantly and squeaks it at Mommy. She'll throw it and he'll take it right back to her. Then he collapses from exhaustion!
On Saturday, Lilo brought her parents over to visit. Mommy made pasta and Bernice got to sit on Lilo's Daddy's lap at the dinner table! She is so spoiled rotten! I think she's mostly rotten anyway...
Daddy gave Lilo some love...
Can you believe this spoiled brat? She looks like she thinks she owns the place or something!
Lilo's Mommy gave Eddie lots of attention, much to Lilo's dismay...
Lilo posed for the camera...
By the end of the evening, we were pretty tired...
On Sunday, Mommy, Daddy and Sam went to the movies. They saw Hotel for Dogs. They were excited about seeing it because there were a couple of pugs in it, but Mommy was disappointed that the pugs didn't get enough screen time.
It was a pretty yucky day on Sunday, so after the movie they came home. It was actually snowing outside! Good thing it didn't stick! But Mommy saw this big ugly bird fly down towards the neighbor's yard. She thought it was a big hawk. It perched in a tree...can you see it?
After a while it flew down to the fence, then it went into the yard 2 houses down from us. This was the best picture that Daddy was able to get. They determined from it's ugly red head and dark coloring that it was a turkey vulture! I guess it was checking out what was left of the cat (in case you missed the story, check it out here).
Yesterday was Monday and Daddy took the day off. We thought that meant even more attention for us, but we were wrong again. Instead, Mommy, Daddy and Sam went downtown and had lunch, then they went to the zoo. They don't allow pugs there so we couldn't go. Here is the Indiana state capital building...
Here are some of the big buildings downtown. It was a very pretty day and we really would have enjoyed going with them...
The zoo is downtown next to the White River...
Mommy took some pictures of the animals to share with us. This is some kind of weird puffer fish...
This is a jellyfish. Mommy said it was hard to get a good picture of the jellyfish because it was really dark where they were. They had some blue light to make them glow...
They stopped to pet the sharks...these are dog sharks...they can't be too bad if they're DOG sharks...
The polar bear looked hungry...maybe it's good that we weren't there!
These trees were blooming and smelled really good...
Some nice man offered to take a picture of Mommy, Daddy, and Sam in front of the rhinos...
There was only one elephant out where they could see. Next to the elephant exhibit, they're building a new exhibit that's going to open Memorial Day...Komodo Dragons! And across from that they're going to build a cheetah exhibit that's supposed to open next year!
It's a LLAMA!!!!
Whatta ya know...llamas like to sniff butts too!
Sam is as tall as a big horse's back!
Hey! That's the same kind of bird we saw out back! It's a turkey vulture! That really is one ugly bird!
Mommy thought she posted about the bears at the zoo. There were 2 Kodiak bears and they both died last year. Well, the zoo got 2 new bears. These are Alaskan Brown Bears. They are about 1 year old and they were orphaned after their mama mauled a hiker and she got the death penalty. Her babies were going to be killed too, but they were rescued and sent (by FedEx) to our zoo. They were play fighting (I hope that was just play!)...
Aren't they cute?
This last animal could be a pug, except he's in a tree! It's a red panda...he's got that relaxing thing down to an art!
Well, Mommy has to go back to work tomorrow. She said she's going to be very busy after being off for a week! And tomorrow is the first of the month which is extra busy for her job. So we're going to make her get more snuggling in tonight!
Pug hugs and kisses!
Jasmine and the Pug Posse

Great pictures. My Mommy loves going to the zoo. She tried to bring me to the outside zoo (Lincoln Park) in Chicago. She put me in a stroller and everything. Unfortunately they realized I was a dog and not a baby. :( But at least with your pictures it was like experiencing the zoo too. Thanks!

Hi Jasmine,
That was a great story - thank you for sharing. I don't understand why pugs can't go to the zoo since we are animals too - what happend to equal rights??
Loves from pugs,

We loved the zoo photo's. It's a bummer that they don't allow dogs. That is the stupidest thing ever!
