Back for Real
Sorry about the many broken promises about starting to post again and stuff, but moving is a really huge pain in the sturgeon and my Parents had no interest in posting after trying unpack/maneuver their way around boxes. Hence the unexpectedly long absence.

Well, we did move. The Stray, unsophisticated as she is, enjoyed every minute of it, starting with the empty apartment and all the new places she could climb into.

And all the boxes she could sit on and eat.

Here I am trying to warn her; "The human who gives out food is not going to like that", I tell her.

"But look how delicious these things look!" She replies.

This is our new yard. We do have to share it with many other dogs, but it is big and is even far enough away from any road that we are allowed to run around leash-less.

This is Mommy's attempt to take a picture of us and the view. As usual, we are being uncooperative, and she could not get far enough away to get all of the view in the shot. This should give you the idea, that is Lake Washington in the background. Cosette and I are very fond of the flowers.

This is Cosette and her new BFF Pumpkin. Pumpkin is about Cosette's age and lives across the hall. Pumpkin's people like to let Pumpkin run around the yard to get out all of her crazy puppy energy, and Cosette joined in on that game very enthusiastically.

This is another pug named Winston (Winston #2). He is a little bit older than me (Winston #1). Here Winston #2 greets Cosette. I don't know why this picture is sideways; Mommy rotated it before she posted it but it came out sideways anyway. Stoopid blogger.

This is Cosette, hmmm, I mean the Stray going nutsos with Winston #2.

I even stooped to their level for a little while and joined in the playing. I am pretty discriminatory when it comes to choosing which dog I play with, but I suppose a pug named Winston #2 is a good candidate. In case you are wondering, there was a sum of 3 Winstons present (get it? Winston #1 plus Winston #2).

This is me trying to get #2 to play.

I am sure you all missed my pretty, smiling face. Well, here it is, and hopefully the humans will not be so lazy as to force you all to go without it for so long in the future.

Snarf everydog later,
/s/ Winston, Grand Duke of Pugsworth

Glad to have you back - what a great yard! The stray looks like she got a lot bigger during your time away from the blog. Watch out Winston!

Yay I am glad you are settling in! And that is wonderful that you do not need to be chained down while outside. :)
Plus lots of new friends to run with!

Your new digs look super nice. I bet you were extra helpful during the move and I bet the stray was constantly underfoot. Just a guess. I'm pretty sure if I was let off leash in my new 'hood I'd just chase cars though so you are sooo smart and lucky.

Great pictures...the stray is getting bigger everytime you post pictures. How are you liking your new place?

Love Clover xo

We missed your blog -- glad you are back! Moving is a pain the the arse, so don't be too hard on your parents.

Nice yard and pretty views. The stray is getting bigger and bigger! Does she boss Winston#2 around also?

Glad to hear you are all doing well. I don't like that there is a Winston #2. I think he must be a poser.
