August 27th 2009

It all started about 2 years ago. Mom and dad would take a stroll around a park, and in that park were dogs. Mom and dad lived in a tiny apartment that didn't allow animals, so mom and dad had to get their fix petting dogs walking along the trails. Mom talked dad into (err about) getting a black female pug and naming her Bellatrix. (Dad will insert his eye roll here...he wanted a big manly dog, not a little 'ole pug)

Besides they didn't even have a can they get a dog? Fast forward to August 27th, 2009. Mom and dad were getting the keys to their new house (dad said that's when he got a new patch of gray hair) and wanted to fill it with the pitter patter of little pug feet. (Even though they had new hardwood floors) Over in Idaho, I was being born.

About 3 weeks later mom decided she had waited long enough and the house needed a pug. She contacted a breeder and dad picked me out of a line up (so mom says it's his fault when I act the ruckus). My name was stamped onto my file and I had sweet dreams of what California would be like....not really people...I had no idea what was going on....I mean really I was 2 weeks old and my main concern involved a nipple. **Mom note:Look you can already see the power of her orbs. In fact Danny (that's dad) said she had the eyes of a trouble maker, that's why we fell in love with her**
This was me getting ready to leave Idaho to go meet my 'rents. The lady had to hold me because I wouldn't sit still....still true to this day. So on October 14th, 2009 mom and dad picked me up and went "Oops! I think she's a he! and the rest is history"

Now dad (who wanted that big dog...silly daddy) has me! I'm sure he's glad he made the right choice (like he had one...hehe mommy thinks that's funny!)

Here's me today! Dad got me this cool new toy as a present. Mom got me my collar a few days ago...and she promised me some whip cream. All in all I think I did pretty good. I've taken over this house, I have a blog, I have a super cute boyfriend Spencer....and all the love of my friends. Speaking of invites any bay area readers to Hap McGee dog park Sunday morning for some play time. Spencer and I go there every Sunday...if you're in the Danville area, come join us around 8:30.

I do have a give away planned for my birthday, but mom thinks this post is long winded enough. I'll post all the details tomorrow.


  1. what a great post. We luved hearing about you beginning in this world. Yup, you rule the roost! Mum says it is called being spoiled PFT whatever mum!


  2. What a cute baby! We want a puppy! No wonder you're such a beauty. It started from birth. The orbs are irresistible, even then. Happy Birthday Miss Bellatrix!
    Luv, Zoey & Phoebe

  3. What a great post! I hope you have a fantastical day. That whipped cream sounds wonderful!! I'm pretty far from you but I'm going to see if I can hop on Alien's ship so I can be there by tomorrow morning to celebrate with you!!


  4. I LOVE that last photograph of you (they are all cute)!!! Have a great day!

    Your pal, Pip

  5. Happy Birthday Bella!
    You sure know how to work your orbs. Enjoy your special day! Milk-it-for-all-its-worth!


  6. Happy Day!!

    Stop it with the baby orb pictures. You're giving my human a major case of the AAAWwwwwS that are usually reserved for me. But I guess since yesterday was your special day and all, it's oK.

    Q: Hap McGee. WOodchips? Me and Dutch went shopping for you yesterday - maybe we can paw deliver instead of USPSing. But only if Hap isn't a really chippy park.

  7. Ooh - Google's pictures say Hap is grassy, not chippy. Are people there freakish about mixing big dogs with little dogs or can we sneak Dutch into the small dog play area with us? I mean, he's such a wuss.

  8. Happy Birthday Belated Birthday Bellatrix! My mom loves Harry Potter and thinks your name is great! we are looking forward to reading about your adventures.

  18. Hiya Neeko,
    Thanks for the birthday wishes and welcome to my blog. I'm not as funny as my Elgin gang bang, but I hope I put a smile on your face.

  19. Howie! Thanks for stopping by and the birthday wishes. Sorry about the song, but it could be worse. Mom says she feels old when she can't remember something that is on the tip of her tongue. I think only cookies should be on the tip of a tongue...but then again I love food. Oh well.

  20. Happy Birthday! We live in Idaho, and I think all the best Puggies come from here! Glad you had a good one! :)
