We're back Part 2

Hey everyone! Big Ern here again to continue to fill you in on our MIA time. So where were we...oh, yes, the wedding on September 19th. Well, Daddy started feeling pretty icky after that. That Monday night he was complaining of pain in his middle section. He asked Mama what it felt like when she had gallbladder problems. It sounded similar, so he stayed home from work the next day and called the doctor. He went in and they did a bunch of tests which all came back normal. Then Wednesday (9/23) was Daddy's birthday (even though he says he's not having any more birthdays). Poor Daddy was feeling so bad on his birthday that Mama couldn't even make him his favorite dinner or even a cake! On Thursday Daddy went back to the hospital for an ultrasound. That showed "sludge" in his gallbladder, but no stones. So they wanted him to see a surgeon to talk about having his gallbladder out since they couldn't find anything else wrong. More about Daddy's problems in the next post since we're going in chronological order. Now on to the fun stuff!


Daddy was starting to feel a little better by the weekend, although not great. But he wanted to have a good weekend anyway. There was a rescue event in the Petco parking lot in Speedway on Saturday. I didn't get to go, but Jasmine, Eli and Gus did. The event was called "Rally to Rescue" and featured a bunch of different rescues besides KPR. It was a pretty nice day and hopefully it helped a lot of doggies get new homes! Here are some pictures of the cute doggies that were representing...

Then we had a birthday party for Daddy! Daddy's sister and dad (and spouses) and some friends including Lilo and her parents came to celebrate!
Sam had to show off his NJROTC uniform. He does look pretty good in the uniform...
Neecy striking a pose...
I have to say it was difficult picking pictures out from this celebration. You see, our 4 year old friend Gigi was allowed to use Mama's camera while our cousin Tabitha was using her mama's camera. There were many, many, many, MANY pictures taken and most of them are just really random pictures of things around the house like the floor and the ceiling fans and pug butts and even some pug poo outside! But there were a few good ones, like this one of Eddie with a party hat :-)
Gus and Pippin are concerned about what the heck is going on...
Uncle Russ is pretty silly (he is Gigi's daddy)...
Little bunny Foo Foo...
Aunt Pam (Daddy's sister and Tabitha's mama) and Aunt Jessica (Lilo's mama) had a good time!
Lilo's mama made a cake for Daddy, but our silly Mama didn't get a picture of it. It was chocolate with chocolate icing and pretty sprinkles on it. The girls definitely enjoyed it (but we weren't allowed to have any)...
Taken more pictures...
Ok, that's all for Part 2! Stay tuned for Part 3! Oh, and check out the newest Indy blogger, TicTac the Teenage Witch! TicTac's parents are great and work really hard for KPR. And, like us, they have an obsene amount of pugs in their house ;-)
Pug hugs and kisses!
