Post Christmas Report

Hope everyone out there had a good Christmas and got everything they wanted!  We got nyla bones, new stuffies and some new tennis balls (which are really more for Brutus because he is crazy about them).  Mom couldn't find the camera at the time, so no pictures of us with our gifts :(

We didn't get to go with Mom & Dad for Christmas since a couple of our human cousins are allergic to dogs.  Mom promised us some cookies when they got home.  Peanut butter cookies are the best!

Check out all of the cookies that mom made

See me helping Dad opening one of his presents.

I gave equal time and helped mom too.  Here she is with the cool new iPod touch that dad got for her.

Well, last night when Dad came in from taking us outside, he noticed some little spots of blood on the carpet.  I won't tell him or Mom how it happened, but I tore one of my front nails off exposing the quick.  I was really quiet when it happened (I am a tough little pug!).

Anyway, Mom & Dad stopped by the vet this morning and gave them some antibiotics to prevent infections.  The vet said just to keep an eye on it and make sure it stays clean and dry.  I am doing much better tonight, but mom needs some ideas on protecting my nail from the elements when going outside.

Just a note for the squeamish - the following pictures are of my nail.

Brutus curled up by me - see me in the background

Other than the nail incident, we all had a very nice Christmas.


  1. Poor Yoda!!! I do hope you paw feels better soon. Glad you had a nice Christmas otherwise!!! I promise to make the momma get back to blogging in the new year!!!


  2. Bless your heart! Now that has got to hurt! Hope you feel better soon!

    Happy New Year!
    Riley and Star.

  3. Oh Yoda, that hadda hurt. You sure are one tough pugger for not squealin' when that happened.

    Tell your mom to look on to find something to protect your foot. They have a bunch of different booties to choose from while your nail heals.

    Milk the sympathy while you can Yoda!

  4. Hey, Yoda, buddy....sorry 'bout yer toenail but maybe yer mom will gave ya summa them tasty-lookin' cookies!

    Glad y'all had a nice Christmas, bud.

  5. Yoda we knows you a tough little pugger and we hope your nail feels betters soon!

  6. Owie!! Mom keeps my toenails cut really short so that hasn't happened to me... BUT in trying to keep them that way sometimes she nips the quick a teeny bit while trimming (I make sure to do a nice ear-piercing squeal to let her know). I never got why she insists on trimming them, but now I kinda get it!! Hope you footie is feeling better soon!!!

  7. Sorry bout your nail Yoda. You sure are a brave Puggy cause that must have hurt alot. I hope it heals up soon.

    It looks like you and Brutus had a nice holiday. To bad you couldn't go with your pawrents but the peanut butter cookies kinda make up for that!


  8. My moms is a foot doctor for humans, it's kinda like a paw doc, so we asked her for ideas. She says it's really important to keep it clean and dry so it can heal up on its own. Those disposable booties (ultrapaws?)would be a good idea, if you keep them on outside. You could also try cutting off one the fingers of exam gloves. Hope you are back on your paws soon!

  9. You got some great gifts. A boo boo? Poor baby
    Have a fun day
    Benny & Lily

  10. Poor Yoda buddy!!!!

    We hear that LOTS of peanut butter cookies and round the clock snuggles (and a Colts win to go with that Wings win last night!) are a good start to helping you feel better!


  11. Hi Yoda & Brutus! It looks like you had a pawsome Christmas! Those cookies sure do look delicious and if I was in Indy I'd stop by and have some - nom, nom, nom!

    I hope the nail gets better Yoda because it's no fun to have boo-boos. It looks like lots of puggies have offered up their advice on protecting it from the elements. I would just ask to be carried to and fro to do my business, but that's just me!

  12. Thanks for the well wishes everyone - I have been napping most of the day and did get some cookies earlier - I am going to milk this for all I can if I keep getting good treats like I have been :)


  13. Dear Yoda
