Far from wordless Wednesday

Hey everyone! Big Ern here. I want to share our busy weekend with you and the pictures from Eli's Gotcha Day celebration, but first I need to share something very important. Our dear friend Pearl from Oklahoma was rushed to the vet this morning by her mother and had to have emergency surgery to remove stones from her bladder! The vet said that if her momma had not been so smart to take her to the vet, she might have died! So please go give her some warm fuzzy pug wishes. Go ahead, we'll wait... In happier news, our buddy Walter from Minnesota who you might remember got into a fight with an SUV last month, got out and about with his mama today. They went for a stroll and stopped at a cafe to watch the world go by. We are so happy that he is doing so well. His rehab is going quite well. Go check out the videos of him in the water tank and on his balancing ball.
And in other pug news, our pal Harry from Alabama is now famous! He's going to be in the SEPRA calendar and this picture of him was featured on this website...
Ok, now for the celebration pictures. First I have to say that our Mama can really be an idiot. We went to the park in the afternoon and she forgot to put the memory card in the camera, so we don't have any pictures of us barking at those 2 big dogs who were chasing squirrels. Nor do we have any pictures of our chaotic trip to Three Dog Bakery. The lady working there gave us some complimentary Gotcha Day cookies and then we picked out some yummy treats to take home.
In case you've forgotten what I look like (since Mama hasn't posted anything in a while), here is my handsome face...
Here is Eli, the pug of the day, enjoying a toy before our cookout at home...
Honorary Posse member Lilo and her parents came over to help us celebrate. Here is Eli enjoying the nice fall-like weather we were having...
These were really yummy soft cookies that looked like watermelon slices...
Lilo was getting a little worn out until the food came out...
Mischievous Uncle Ryan fed us some chicken...
Gus made sure he didn't miss anything that might have fallen...
Then Aunt Jess let Eli have some corn. As Rachel Ray would say...Yumm-o!!!
Uncle Ryan tried to help Neecy get a better signal to the mother ship. It didn't work.
I savoured the corn...mmmmmm...corn on the cob....
Lilo tried to get her tongue around it...
Sorry Bernice, the mother ship still isn't coming...
I really don't know what was going on in this picture...
Pippin, who is very picky about his treats, gobbled up the corn. He just couldn't get enough of it!
Neecy even nibbled the corn...
That sure is some good corn...
Eddie concentrated very hard on what he was eating...
Gus Gus's turn...
Jasmine couldn't believe how silly everyone was being...
Any scraps left on the ground???
Yes, that is corn in Pippin's mouth.
Here's the special boy waiting on his special treats.
Lilo was entertaining us with her impressions. This is her Shar-Pei...
And here is her attack dog impression...
Now this is the best part. We each got a pupcake! See how yummy they look?
I couldn't believe how awesome they were, so I carried mine around and around the room for a while...
Eli was so excited about his pupcake...
Pippin dug in a little too enthusiastically and got icing on his face :-)
Gus munched away at his...
Neecy licked all the icing off before she ate the cake...
Yum! That was the most awesome Gotcha Day ever!!!
Then Sunday morning, Mama and Daddy took Eli and Gus to Petco for KPR duty. They said it was quiet and they didn't make any money, but they got some attention and Gus got a new toy. Eli really enjoyed getting some Mama time...
Here is Gus with his new toy. Note the crazy look in his eyes...
I think Eli loves Mama...
Can I keep it???
They were pretty tired on the way home...
Well, that's all for now. Remember to go give Pearl lots of mental pug hugs and kisses!
Pug hugs and kisses,
Ernie and the Pug Posse
