A little known fact about us Pugs is we haz responsibilities to our hoomins.

 

I’m mostly in charge of the Mayle Hoomin. I keep him alert by shadowing him closely in the kitchen. He has to make sure he doesn’t trip over me, and I stay real close in case he drops cheese or bread. He drops cheese or bread frequently too, so I have to be sure I’m right there at all times.gusfeet

I also try to walk the Mayle at least twice a day. guswalkies He’s pretty good about it, but sometimes I have to be patient and wait while he gets his shoes and hat on.guswait-350

Have you ever been there?   Some friends of ours invited us to go with them to Apple Hill in Camino, California (right next to Placerville) in November. What a pleasant surprise to find so many apple farms nestled in the heart of Gold Country. When I first moved to the foothills in the summer of […]

Make Your Own Laundry Soap

Here’s a frugal idea. Make your own laundry soap! My buddy Terri has been brewing up her own laundry soap lately, and she sent me the recipe to share. As it turns out, the ingredients are but a point and click away – so even if you live where the ingredients are not easily found […]

strawberries

We have a small park near our house where we like to walk. In fact, that is where the dogwood was photographed. They have quite a few different things planted and growing around there, and it’s always a treat for me to be around when the ornamental strawberries are showing off. Today was the day. […]
