I know you missed me but you haven't missed a thing around here. Nothing. My human had another probably-not-Lupus attack right after I posted the last half-naked Santa and spent the next bunch of days in one of those Benedryl comas trying not to go to the doctor.

The probably-not-Lupus attack was just like what happened with her hand, except this time it was her eyes. And then the rest of her face. Of course the doctors have no idea why my human keeps puffing up, but that Prednisone stuff they gave her totally deflated things back to normal. Please don't tell her I showed you a picture of her probably-not-Lupus eye. Or the normal one with the bad hair. She'd totally freak.


So I didn't get 5 pounds of bacon, baby cowpies or poses with Nikon for Christmas. We didn't even have ONE day of Christmas - forget about 12. But Frank was here so I played with him and I'll add Christmas to the VERY long list of 2012 things we need to celebrate in 2013.

2012 wasn't exactly my #1 favorite year. Except for getting to meet lots of you in the fur/skin, this year was pretty sucky and I'm kinda glad it's almost over. 2013 is going to be waaaaay better. I just know it.


Thank you all for sticking with me. Even when I was weekly. And even not-so-weekly. I'm putting and end to that tomorrow. I don't know about you & your people, but my human is waaaay more human when we're all here together. 

Adios 2012!!!!

PS: Sammy + Neko -- I totally forgot! The great big giant box wasn't for me, Dutch OR my human. It was for Kim. Yeah. That Kim is still here. The thing that came in the box is... hard to explain. I'll see if Droid can take a video.

Are we the only pugs dying to know what that heck the giant box was and why "Kim" is still there?? hmmmm.... anyway, we wish 2013 be healthier and happier year for all.

2012 did kind of blow chunks so we are with you in saying sayonara. Bring on an awesome 2013!

Hopefully now that it's 2013, the human vets and your mom can figure out what is going on and what she can do to mitigate any problems. Stress is more than likely a trigger for most diseases and if one pug is stressful, 999 plus their humans are exponentially stressful. So make your mom rest more this year. A healthy set of thumbs is more important than any pictures as awesome as they will be.

Sorry Gnat said...

Puglet, you are a valient reporter; please tell your dear owner prayers of the healing kind will be said; i suspect she is displaying courage and valour in hard circumstances; pug owners are like that; you snuggle up to her and give her all the love vibes you can!

You know, my human is allergic to really weird things, and when she touches them (or breathes them) she gets all puffy and itchy. There was the time she went to play in the snow and her face brushed a stick, which probably was poison oak, and she swelled up so much she couldn't see out of one eye. Then there was the time she thought it would be "nice" to take a bath by candle light, because she can't use bubbles on account of the allergies. That time her neck and face swelled up and she had to go to the vet and get prednisone. There was a terrible time when she thought she was allergic to ME, but it turns out it's just the ingredient they added to Frontline when they made it Frontline Plus.

Here's hoping it's something easy to figure out and hoping for a better, less stressful year for everypuggy.

happy new year from jonas and olive (#713 & #714) and our human misti.

she wanted to let you know that she deals with the ugly lupus word too. no one knows what it is and its a little crazy and unpredictable, but she's kicked its butt since 17, so we aren't worried because we are sure you totally can too.

just dont say that prednisone word around her. it makes her really grumpy.

message us if you ever want to chat about the stupid "L" thing.

pugs and kisses
joanie, olive + misti

Oh man glad you let us know how things were with you and everyone else. It has been a long hard year for your human...she so needs a vacation! Forget all the things that have been missed in 2012 and just move forward into what I wish can be a healthy and happy 2013 for all of, you guys deserve it!! And...what's up with Kim?
