More Pug Pendants

I've been having so much fun creating these bubble charm pendants. This one I just listed in my Etsy shop and it's made from my original Pug artwork. I've made and sold several of these actually and wearing one as we speak. I've made the flat ones as well but these bubble charms are my favorite. I guess because the way they magnify the image and also they just simply "Feel" good to the touch.

I've had several requests for these pendants in black and I'm working on that. I know many of you have black Pugs and I think these would look darling in black as well.

I think these will make nice little Christmas gifts and if you are on a budget (who isn't in this economy right!?), they are quite affordable at $18 and this includes shipping within the U.S.A. If interested, just visit my Etsy Shop.

Pug on a diet

Ingrid is on a diet and she's none too happy about it either. I noticed a couple weeks ago that she was looking a little "thicker" and decided she needs to watch her figure...much to her chagrin. I'm pretty sure she has been sneaking food as I caught her the other day trying to knock over the bag of dog food.

As you can see laying down she resembles a furry sausage. Shhh, don't tell her I said that or she definitely won't speak to least until dinner time. So anyway it was time to cut the calories.

This is her reaction to the news that she is officially on a diet and giving me the "stink eye".

Coolest Pug Purse!

I had a gal come and pick up a Pug today and I saw her purse and about died! And I don't even carry a purse (lost more of them than I care to admit from setting them down places). Anyway, she was gracious enough to let me take a couple pictures and hopefully she can let me know how to get ahold of the gal that makes these. I suppose I could make one myself...but who has time for that LOL! I actually don't want it for a purse but as a tote for Pug stuff when we travel. I believe she said she can make them larger too.

Arvay's Sugar Moon Lagoon is home!

Bindy is back home for awhile to mature before she heads back out to seek her AKC championship with our handler. We'll enter her in a couple shows to keep her training up while she's here. Lord help's been over 3 years since I've shown. It's going to be fun OR of the two LOL!

She's as sweet as ever and my how she is growing up into a real beauty! You might remember her from her puppy video where she's pretending she's an Owl! She still does that too when you talk to her!
