Before we even begin I must share the good news that I am a new mom! Pugsley Argus Anderson-Smith came into our lives this past Tuesday!


Look at the gooddog! He is a puggle (pug/beagle), about age three. He came from the Friends of Michigan Animal Rescue in Belleville and is an amazing dog. He met our friends’ cat last night and as you can see he was completely unbothered–even when kitty ate one of the precious duck treats.

His dad picked out the first name, and the Argus of course is a nod to our historical newspapers! We hyphenated Ken’s last name first so that he can always sit at the front of the class. His street name is Pugs and the dogs already know there is a new pimp in town.
