Change of Direction

It's time for me to change the direction of this blog.  When I first started blogging I got so many warnings.  I was warned not to give too much personal information.  I was warned not to talk about anything political or religious.  I was warned that some not very nice people might comment on my blog posts.  It kind of intimidated me and my posts became fewer and fewer. 

I've decided to talk just about what is important to me and what my days and life consist of.  My blog is just something that I really want to enjoy.  I hope you enjoy it too or, at the very least, it makes you think.  Even if you think, "Boy, I'm glad I'm not her".  :-)

I won't have a bunch of glossy, beautiful pictures, because I don't know how to do that and I just have the standard old digital camera and cell phone.  There won't be any fantastic decorating ideas or mouth watering recipes or linky parties (whatever that is).  Just you and me, but mostly me, unless you leave a comment. 


My blog says, Pug's Mom Says and that little pug, Phoebe, is very important to me.  She is suffering from some sort of condition that is slowly paralyzing her.  Her back legs don't work like they are supposed to.  She falls a lot and bumps into things and poop just falls out of her.  She can't control it anymore.  I have to manually express her pee.  She can't sleep with me anymore, as she has accidents during the night.  She doesn't seem to be in any pain and she acts like she wants to play.  Her appetite is good and she still loves to snuggle and cuddle.  I have three other pugs and she is still as competitive as she ever was.  My late husband used to say that Phoebe was the best gift I ever gave myself.  I think he was right.

Until next time,


  1. I hope you blog again, Sandy. Don't worry about all those warnings.


    1. Rue, Thank you so much for your kind words. So excited to get a comment. Have a great day!

  2. You were right about the comment, Sandy. It was uncalled for and after reading several of those kinds of things I felt the need to say something. I hope it helps.


  3. Sandy, if you ever want to learn more about sizing and editing pics, or linky parties or anything like that please let me know. I am happy to share what I have learned.

    Your pug is so cute - they are the funniest furry friends.
