Puggle Tears Leg Ligament

Ever since we moved to New York, I’ve really struggled to update this blog. I’ll do my best to bring the blog up to speed from now on… :)

As for all the people who are submitting their puggles to be featured, thank you! As I post more, I’ll try to pull from past submissions and get some of you guys featured! (After all…every puggle deserves the spotlight!)

Okay… now onto business. This blog should really be called, “CormacGetsHurt.com” because the poor little guy is injured again! Back in April we took a trip back to Michigan for a Leukemia fundraiser for my mother, (www.lovejeannie.com), and during our trip Cormac took a tumble… The results were a cut leg and a torn knee ligament. :-(

He was very confused as the vet assessed his knee. As if he was asking, “why can’t I walk???” The wound was flushed out and 4 staples were put in.

During supervision, we could take off his “cone of shame” and let him do what he loves most… Bask in the Spring sun!cormac-puggle-leg-injury-3

It’s been particularly hard back in NYC because we live in a 4 floor walk-up… Every time we would take the dogs out, we’d carry Cormac. 25lbs has NEVER felt so heavy!!  (Below is my darling husband carrying him!)cormac-puggle-leg-injury-5 cormac-puggle-leg-injury-6

About a month ago, Cormac was able to start doing the stairs himself and eventually stopped limping. With a LOT of physical therapy at home, he is finally getting better!

Cormac Caught The Puggle Bug

It wouldn’t be a normal month if Cormac didn’t get sick at least once. Well this month he had a period of two days where he couldn’t stop throwing up. It was so hard to watch, but we figured it would run its course.

After a day and a half, poor little guy woke up and wouldn’t move…not even for breakfast. You know something is very wrong when a puggle doesn’t want to eat!

When we finally got him off the couch, walking to the vet was a whole other struggle. But we made it! Woo hoo!

He was so polite (and sad) as we waited our turn.

Apparently, he was extremely dehydrated and needed a little water boost, so they injected some under his skin.

Back home for some rest and relaxation. What I wouldn’t do for him!

Puggle Watches Baseball ~ Valverde FAIL

I’m not a HUGE baseball fan, but as a Detroiter living in New York, we had to watch the Championship Series…Naturally, our Puggles watched too! But when Cormac saw the game last Saturday, he was as displeased with Valverde as we were. Tough Critic.

Closet Puggles

Puggles sure do love hanging out in the strangest places, wouldn’t you agree?

The Puggles Are City Dogs Now!

After a few weeks in the city, the puggles are settling right in. And from the 21st floor, they love watching the people below. They’ve also had a lot of ‘firsts’. A few of the big ones are:

-No grass to play in. (not yet anyways, we’re moving near Central Park soon!)
-More people in one spot than they’ve ever seen.
-Dog parks where there are other small dogs to play with, and a lot of them.
-Elevators.
-Only going outside twice a day.

Puggles Are NYC Bound!

Nothing lasts forever. Especially not the place you call home. Starting in July, the puggles will be traveling to New York with us for a new adventure. As we packed the moving truck, they wouldn’t leave our side!

Just before we started packing our things for the move, a baby blue jay fell from its nest.
