What's in a name Wednesday

Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo...

Hey everyone! Guess who's finally back! Tis me, Big Ern and the Posse! We hope we still have some followers! We know it's been a long time, but Mama has been super busy...

Mama sucks, Mama sucks!

BERNICE! That is not a nice thing to say!

What? I said Mother ship, Mother ship ;-D

Whatever, Neecy, you better behave or I won't clean your ears tonight!

Anyway, we want to introduce the new fluffy pug, Romeo. He's not really that new, he's been with us since January, but since we haven't blogged in a while, he's new to the blog world!

Romeo was rescued from what we think is a potential puppy mill. Very shady situation, but he was obviously kept for breeding purposes. He's supposedly 7 years old and he was not fixed (but he is now!), he was kept outside ALL THE TIME so he has a really thick fluffy coat that Mama has been working on brushing out (she has brushed about 4 whole pugs out of his coat and he's still the fluffiest pug ever!), and he's mostly blind. Oh, and his mouth was badly infected when he was rescued, so the vet removed 6 teeth from his mouth (when she was "fixing" him) which left 3 teeth. Yes, he only had 9 teeth when he was rescued! And his chin is very crooked which makes Mama think his jaw was broken at some point. Can you believe that? Who would treat a pug that way? Especially one that looks like a bunny but without the long ears!
Despite all of his disabilities, he has done really well in the Posse's crib. He learned his way around by following us, especially in the backyard. It's hard to even tell that he can't see!
He's just a foster, but we don't think he's going anywhere ;-) Mama adores him and he adores Mama! And it would probably be difficult finding another home for him because of his disabilities. KPR is full of adoptable pugs who are perfectly healthy who are looking for homes :-(
So, I guess we have a new pug brother. I have to admit, he is pretty cute. Mama calls him "stinking cute"...yes, we think he's stinky too! BOL :-D
Well, that's Romeo! What do you think?
We're going to try to make Mama blog for us more often now that things are FINALLY starting to slow down slightly at her work. She is still working way too much which cuts into our time snuggling with her :-b And we have to tell you about the other 2 fosters staying with us! (The suspense is killing you now, isn't it?)
Until next time, pug hugs and kisses,
Ernie and the Pug Posse
