The Big Day!

Mom & Dad came home early from work on Friday and loaded us up in the car.  This was very unusual and the last time we went for a car ride during the week it was to go visit our new sister.

Sure enough, we pulled up in front of the same house and we knew we were going for a visit with our sister.

While we were there, mom started filling out a bunch of paperwork and was talking to Miss Annie about "Sally".  Little did we know at the time that this was her gotcha day.

We would like to officially welcome our new sister to the family (since we don't have a choice really).  Right now  her name is "Sally", which is the name she had while with Miss Annie.  Mom & dad aren't sure if this is going to be her name, but for the purposes of writing about her on the blog right now it will be.  If any of you have any ideas for names - mom & dad said they are open for suggestions.

Birthday - 10-13-10
Gotcha Day - 12-10-10

At Miss Annie's - Sally was asking if she could take Snoopy home (of course the answer was "yes")

Brutus and Sally...

Me and Sally (I made that face just for the camera... really, I did)

Finally home.  Sally's first meal in her new home.

She was worn out so she took a nap (she also got to bring home one of the bears that Aunt Punchy sent to the Peanuts gang several weeks ago)

Dinner time for mom - in typical pug fashion, Sally offered to help her eat it.

I begrudgingly let her sleep near me....for a little while anyway.

Are we really keeping her? ....

So, that was Friday night.  Mom says that Sally did really well both Friday and Saturday nights.  She slept 5 hours each night without having to go out to potty.  We are about 50/50 with accidents in the house and potties outside.  In Sally's defense it is cold and snowy outside and Brutus and I don't want to go out there either!

She tried out Brutus' bed.... Look how tiny she is in it!

Mom & dad got this cool stuffy for us - Sally just loves it.

Going outside this afternoon.  That cute pink jacket she has on is from The Pug Posse.

Since she tried to take over the sock monkey bed, mom brought out the Snoopy bed for Sally.

There has also been plenty of playtime.  Brutus and I still aren't quite sure how to play with Sally without hurting her, so playtime mainly consists of her running around us and barking.

Being the good big brother that I am, I showed her the toy box (maybe this way she would leave me alone).

Brutus and Sally taking a nap on mom's lap.

Einstein joined in - see her there behind Brutus?

OMG!!!  Brutus shared his sock monkey bed with her too!!!

Posing for the camera...

Showing off her new sweater.

That has been our weekend.  She is slowly worming her way into our hearts.  We hope everyone is having a good weekend out there.  We know a bunch of areas got snow, so we hope everyone is staying safe and warm.


  1. ohhhhh!
    if you could hear me sqeaking over here looking at every photo!
    miss sally is the luckiest and cutest sweet little girl in the world!
    congratulations to all of you!
    what a wonderful welcome home weekend!



    Woo two just need to listen to all she tells woo!

    I mean, just ask your mom!


  3. Sally is super, super cute! I'll bet Santa leaves you all early Christmas presents since she's there.

    Mom said Sally was always her favorite on The Peanuts, so we all like the name. You could just call her Peanut, though, since she looks like a little one.


  4. Oh my gosh these are the cutest pics!!! Looks like Sally is fitting in just fine!!! YAY!!!

  5. Oh Sally is a good name but it would be fun to pick out a name right? Mom wants to name our next pug Waffles (yep she is crazy I mean look at our names). Mom also like Poppy (like the flower kinda goes with our theme here). There is a pug in our group named Dooney.

    Sally looks like so much fun and work. Did she like that you showed her the toy bin.

    Sally is a cute name, and not matter what you name her,, it will fit.
    Oh did we ever enjoy seeing all these photos!!Thank you for sharing with us as you welcomed her home.
    We looked at the photos over and over, and we looked at the expressions on Yoda and Brutus's face.. They are so cute.
    How sweet - all these photos,,
    And the one of Sally taking the toy in her mouth so proudly.... with "eyes watching her".
    She is one of the cutest babies we have ever seen. And what beautiful sweaters.
    What a lucky little girl, to get a family of love. And how lucky you are.
    We are so happy for you

  10. omg she's so adorable and a very lucky puppy!

  11. sally is adorable! she looks like she will get brutus and yoda wrapped around her little paw in no time. congratulations on your new baby!

  12. Welcome home Sally (for now)! You have awesome big brothers to play with you and protect you.

    Our mom isn't one for "normal" names. Thus Tallulah Sweet Pea and Petunia Tulip Julep. Originally, there was only supposed to be one of us (mom couldn't decide), and she was supposed to be Annabelle. But mom said our names just came to her when she saw us. BUT, she likes names like Eugenia, Eulalie, Savannah, blah blah blah. Is it any wonder that we are bad with names like that?

  13. Welcome home Sally! Looks like you settled in very well :D Brutus is being such a grand big Bro :)

    Happy Holidays!

  16. Yay! Sally is finally in her new forever home! LOVE the pictures...especially with Brutus sharing his sock monkey bed with her! I'm glad to see that Brutus adores Miss Sally, and that Sally looks up to her Big Bros. Can't wait to see you all...hopefully soon!

  17. OMD... What a cutie! But from one Brutus to another, lemme warn you about little girls... They act all cute & innocent, you let your guard down, then they steal all your stuff!! BOL. Seriously though, congrats on the beautiful new addition, she's a doll!! Housebreaking in the snow is tough business, good luck!

    Brutus the Frenchie

  18. OMG, you ALL are cute!!! LOVE the looks on Y and B's faces!!!

    We think she looks like a Sally, but that's just us.

    Congratulations and enjoy!!!


    Sarah, Hank and Molly

  19. Yeah!!!! So happy for you all! We actually think the name Sally is so cute! We had thought of a new name from Kiki when she was adopted from KPR, but then thought of how lucky she was to have Annie as her mama and decided to stick with the name given to her.

    We can't wait to see more photos of her growing up with her big brothers!

  20. OMG. She's the cutest. Like my Mom wants to get another me now. Oh dear.

    Hehe have lots of fun with your new lil sister.


    Minnie Moo

  21. Hi Remington here! I LOVE your blog! I am going to start following, not around your living room....just in Blogland! I hope we can be great friends!

  22. Oh Yoda, I'm sorry about the new addition. She looks like she is pretty stinking adorable so I bet she gets a lot of attention for awhile. If you and Brutus need a place to come and hang out for awhile until this all blows over, you are always welcome in St. Louis.


  23. Sally is adorable!! Congrats on the new addition!

  24. We LOVE the head shot of Brutus and Sally! So cute. You boys will learn to love her in no time I promise. Well, let me prepare you for lots of unwanted tail biting as well. Gotta be honest.

    Pug love from,
    Pearl & Daisy

  27. OMD, she is just as cute as can be. And look how much she loves you two already. Sally is a great name, but we also like Lucy. Have lots of fun with her, she will grow up so fast, just like Miss Ciara.

    AND congratulations.

  30. Sally has totally speedily made her way into my Ami's heart! She is all ohhhh's and ahhhhhh's. I feel like Brutus and Yoda about it.
