A Puggeroomie Cherished Memory.
I am a huge fan of the recent photographs taken of The Duchess of Cambridge taken by Paolo Roversi at Kew Gardens. Especially this one. It's quite poignant that Kate wearing Diana's pearl and diamond earrings and ring (now Kate's engagement ring).
I have a story about Kate and William.
A few years ago, I was walking Kobe and I was told by security to stand aside for a passing through vehicle. I picked up a much younger and very muddy Kobe. We then both stood to one side waiting for this huge four by four to pass us by guarded by many police on motorbikes.
Lo and behold myself and little muddy Kobe were then waving to Kate and William. We were the only pedestrians and pugs that day in view of something that doesn't happen in everyday normal life. What a great view we had too!
As Kate and William passed us by Kate pointed at Kobe and turned to William to tell him what she could see. We then waved to them both and prompted by my hands I made Kobe's little paw wave too and Kate giggled.
A moment me and Kobe will always cherish.
Checking out of Puggeroomie.
Tomorrow, we will be saying our fond farewells to our gorgeous ‘roomies’ Albert & Georgie.
Albert and Georgie arrived at Puggeroomie on the Sunday 12th December for their very own self-indulgence Christmas and New Year staycation.
I often find that when we look after someone else’s cherished family pet for a long board they do become part of our family and daily routines. On checking out I do at times find I can feel quite emotional but I also enjoy watching that fantastic moment of being reunited with their owner(s).
On staycation Albert and Georgie have enjoyed many ‘pawstretch adventures’ with myself and my husband Steve aka Mr Puggeroomie. They have both met our Mum and Dad, our neighbours, and our friends.
They have had cuddles by the open fire, enjoyed all-inclusive pampering sessions, they have kept us company cooking in our kitchen, watched us each our takeaways, boof boofed along with our festive movies and played in ‘The Beach Garden’.
Albert & Georgie’s general health and wellbeing has been amazing. No concerns to note. That’s what we like to see! A happy grumble of puggy wuggys!
I think if they could talk. Georgie would ask his Pugmom for a tortoise so he could enjoy his very own ‘tortoise tv’ at home. Albert would explain how much he loved being our 'slipper guardsman'.
Cheesy, I know! ha ha.
Before checking out tomorrow we machine wash the blanket from your home you provide and check all items on arrival are being packed ready for departure.
Albert and Georgie arrived with three bags and will be leaving with four, possibly five! Ha ha ha!
Why? They have their Christmas presents from Puggeroomie and lots of treats to take home!
At puggeroomie we love your dogs like our own!
Albert and Georgie both come from a lovely family who are much loved and respected folk in the big pug community. Their Pugmom, has a wealth of pug knowledge, a big heart for these little fluffy people and apparently a liver cake to die for! They all scoffed it so quick Sue I missed the photo opportunity and nearly lost my fingers. Their Pugmom's daughter is a lovely lady who runs 'Pop Up Pug Pug' and 'Faith Hope & Sunshine' she also has beautiful pugs of her own.
Final thought. Albert and Georgie are just two beautiful ‘happy’ ‘superstars’ I mean come on, it’s written on their harnesses for fluff sake! Proof is on the puggies!
As always, it has been an absolute pleasure.

I cannot wait!!!!!
I'm just off to tell Steve ha ha ha! wink wink xx
Today, I had to take Kobe, Rosie, Poldark and Demelza to register and meet our new vet.
One word, hilarious!
On reversing out of our driveway, I had the lovely view of my three babies Kobe, Poldark and Rosie strapped in safe on the back seat and Demelza scratching my hand while on the gear stick from her passenger seat. We hadn’t even left Ryde Place and I knew we were off to an interesting start.
Stuck in traffic along Portsmouth Road, Rosie decides to look out the rear window to get attention from the van behind, Kobe starts barking at a cyclist by our side, Poldark is staring at me oddly in the rear view mirror singing and Demelza is looking like she needs a poo while strangely smelling into the radio?!
When seen in public wearing my Puggeroomie uniform there is always this feeling that I want to appear publicly professional in all I do. I don’t know where this has come from? it’s just a feeling I get. I guess I take pride in my work. I am laughing because things never work out how I plan in my mind. I opted for Kobe and Rosie to travel inside the pram across a busy car park while Poldark and Demelza walk along side.
A lady shopping pointed at me with her friend ‘you have your hands full are those all yours’. Yes, I replied ‘I am a proud Pugmom of four’. ‘Looks like hard work to me’ I replied, ‘no different to four small children really’. At this point Demelza had wound her lead a thousand times around my leg, Poldark was sprinkling on the shop corner, Rosie is digging the pram for any treats and Kobe had just realised we are about to go into a new pet shop and started boof boofing!
I quickly headed through the pet shop and made way to the lift to go upstairs. Inside the lift, I felt a sense of calm wash over me. Phew! ‘we’ve made it this far my little tinkerbums’. Feeling safe and secure inside our quiet small boxed lift. A good time I felt to tell them how good they all are and gave them a few fave liver ball treats.
I knew any moment the lift door would soon open, I needed to feel more prepared. My jacket came off, jumper too! the pressure was on. I felt a little tropical thinking about what my little tinkerbums were going to do next on me seeing all the other animals waiting to be seen. Demelza started nom noming the glass lift door with her mouth the squeaky noise sucking glass was in no way embarrassing as she thought she saw her Dad.
For those of you that do not know Steve and I never met Demelza’s Dad when we decided to offer her a forever home. Demelza often lunges talking oddly when thinking it could be her real Dad.
I had to explain to her while squeaking the lift glass it was a cat.
Pleased to say my little tinkerbums are all of good health. They have gained a little puggy wobble wobble weight, but this will even out before our next visit I am sure.
Thank you to all staff who made us feel welcome, helped me and made such a fuss of my four crazy fur children.
'Crazy four fur children' I wouldn’t want it any other way.
After all, I am a crazy Pugmom!
