Arts & Entertainment Earth Day Challenge

Today is Earth Day!

 and we are taking part in

 The Blogville April Earth Day Challenge!

Louis, Blogville Director of Arts and Entertainment
challenged us to show the World

That Blogville Cares
Planet Earth!

Here at the PugRanch we take recycling seriously
We have our very own recycling shed where we store recyclable plastic, cardboard and newspapers.
We take them to the recycle center and that means less stuff goes to the local landfill.
Recycled newspapers and cardboard also means less trees will be cut.

Flowers For Dory

Today we are joining our co-host Kinley 

for a very special 

"Flowers for Dory" Friday

In honor of our beautiful furiend 
we are sharing some of our favorite pictures 
from last spring and summer

Delicate pink blossoms!

Our snow crab tree in full bloom

Tiny little purple flowers in our memorial garden

Mom loved this violet color

and the dark peach too!

After a long harsh winter - spring has been slow to come to the PugRanch this year and no hint of flowers

But on the day that Dory went to the Rainbow Bridge
This ground cover burst into delicate flowers
 as if it was blooming for Dory

Dory was Mr Bailey's sweetheart
and he loved taking her on dates

Their first date was Valentines Day 2015 
and Bailey fell head over paws for beautiful Dory

They had many more wonderful dates together 
and he always wanted to make her feel special

Our very favorite memory 
was getting to meet Dory (and Arty) in the furs. 
They stopped by the PugRanch to visit 
on their way home from the BAR last summer

Bailey couldn't believe she was really here 
In his dreams he always remembers 
how lovely she looked that day

Bailey & Dory were in the midst of planning their
Tropical Dream Vacation when Dory fell ill. 

It was Dory's dream to still go on that vacation

A dream is a wish your heart makes
and it is Bailey's wish to make that dream come true

We hope you will visit us on Monday 
for Bailey & Angel Dory's Tropical Dream Vacation

Tylees 30 day Challenge Post #2

For two weeks now Mom has been putting 
the NEW Chewy exclusive Human-Grade Dog Food, 
on our kibble as a topper

Tylee's is made with human-grade ingredients 
just like you’d find at the grocery store—
real, whole foods you can see and identify

Pork crumbles, broccoli, squash, carrots and pineapple!

It looks yummy, it smells yummy 
it tastes yummy!

Mom says the best thing so far is that Hazel likes it. 
Since Mom has started putting a liquid medication on Hazel's food she hesitates to get started eating
But with Tylee's on top she dives right in!

We will do another post at the end of the month to give you our final thoughts on
Tylee's Human Grade Food

disclaimer:  As a #chewyinfluencer we were sent a month supply of this food free of charge in exchange for our honest review

Day Trip to Shoshone Falls!

Yesterday -  Me & Mom & Dad 
went on a mini road trip 2 hrs west to

Shoshone Falls 

With a 212 foot drop and a width of 900 feet, it is one of the largest natural waterfalls in the United States.
 It is also known as the Niagra of the West

The flows over the falls are seasonal runoffs
 from the mighty Snake River, which carves its way through deep basalt canyons and is the largest tributary to the Columbia River.

The best time to visit Shoshone Falls is during peak water flows, between the months of April and July. 
With the near record snowfall we had this year the run off has made the falls quite spectacular!

This is a view of the Snake River coming into the falls

looking from the side

Getting closer

One of several overlooks

The power of the water rushing over the falls
sent spray way up into the air

Me and Dad on the overlook
Mom would not get close!

This is where we were

An incredible view!

When we were walking on the path a lady stopped 
and asked if I slept with Mom & Dad
Mom thought that was a strange question but said yes
The lady laughed and said
"Well then you have bed pugs"

A stunning view!

I think I like having both Mom & Dad retired
if we get to have adventures like this!
