Eli's Gotcha Day

Hi everyone! Pug Mama here. I've been really bad about pug birthdays, but this Saturday is a day that cannot be missed! It's Eli's Gotcha Day! Sidney, Jasmine, and Pippin were all breeder pugs that we got as puppies. When Sid died last year we found Kentuckiana Pug Rescue and fell in love with little Eli. He was rescued from a backyard breeder and he was sooooooo skinny. He also had worms which is part of the reason he was so skinny. And he has that pug eye pigmentation problem. Because of it his eye sight is not the best, but he has the biggest heart!
Here he is when we first brought him home...he was so skinny that his head looked so big!!!
Such a sweet little face... Eli was so skinny and Pippin was so....fluffy...
He is a great head-tilter. One of his nicknames is "Bobble-head". These pictures kind of make me sad because he was so skinny and so desperate for love and attention. He is such a wonderful little pug and is so healthy now!
He has such a big fluffy tail too. And the hair right between his eyes (just above the nose fold) forms a little mohawk :-)
He didn't waste any time getting acquainted with our backyard... This is one of my favorite pictures of Eli...his little runway model pose...Zoolander maybe?
Pippin seemed to like having a little buddy from the beginning...he was a little buddy for a long time until Sid died...Now he's the PugFather and Eli is his little sidekick ;-)
Eli really took a liking to Pip too...
Can you belive how skinny he was?
Now, a year later, Eli has won the KPR kissing contest 3 times and he came in second place once!
Eli does a great Blair Witch Pug...
I am so glad this little baby came into our lives...
And I think he's kind of happy about it too :-)
I'm going to try to share some more pictures tomorrow and Saturday we're going to try to have a pug picnic at the park! Anyone who wants to join us is welcome!
Pug hugs and kisses!
