Momma told me I should be expecting some special visitors on Saturday morning and look who showed up! I had never met this gal and her pug before but they were very good friends of Stubbys and they were here to see me!
I finally got to meet Salinger and his pretty momma Auntie Laura. They drove all the way up from Indy to visit me, Momma, and Daddy and to hang with us all weekend. Yippee!
Laura couldn't get over how tiny I was. She kept saying that I was perfect, perfect, perfect! Duh! Of course I am!
I just know she wanted to take me back to Indy with her and Salinger but Momma wouldn't give me up for anything.
I loved hanging out with Laura. She played with my ears and told me how lucky I was to have found such an awesome home.
Salinger brought me a whole recycled bag full of goodies! I couldn't believe my eyes when I unwrapped all the cool things inside. These two stuffies were accompanied by two boxes of Lily Pulitzer animal crackers (yummy!), two bottles of special Tippy Toes nail polish, and more. Auntie Laura even painted my tippy toes Saturday night!
These treats are all mine - it says so right on the package. I would have shared some treats with Salinger but we were too busy eating people food!
This beautiful pink t-shirt was in the bag along with a cool black one. Don't I look pretty?
I took Salinger to my favorite dog store, Page's Healthy Pets to get some foodables. Momma didn't take any pictures of us in the store because I was out of control. Sorry Momma, it's just that all that food makes me crazy.
I had to ride in the back seat with Momma on that way to the store and I cried the whole way there. On the way back, Salinger sat in the back with me and I was perfectly quiet. Hmmmm. Hint, hint, hint!
I left some treats in Salinger's room but I also gave him a very special gift. Momma had bought a two pack of tags a while ago and when I saw them I knew I would wear one and share one. I wondered to myself who I would share the other tag with and there was only one pug who the tag seemed perfect for. Momma clipped Salinger's tag on his collar and he loved it. Mine says "Diva", and Salinger's says "Pampered" because he's not spoiled!
The weekend was over way too quick. This is us chilling on Sunday morning. I don't think Salinger wanted to leave. He loves Daddy and the feeling is mutual. Momma told Auntie Laura that Salinger can stay with us whenever they go on vacation. I sure hope they go somewhere soon!
Salinger is one chilled out dude!
Before Auntie Laura left she told me that she needed to talk to me. Daddy was sitting right there but it was okay because she came closer so she could whisper in my ear.
She bent down and told me that I had really big shoes to fill. She told me that Stubby was such an awesome pug and that everyone loved him so much. He was missed so much but that everyone knew he was in a better place.
As Auntie Laura came closer her voice got softer. Her whispers tickled my little Tiffy ears and I listened intently as she told me that Momma and Daddy loved me so much. She said that Momma was so happy and was starting to heal, all because of me.
She made me promise to be good and to always listen to Momma and Daddy. She invited me to visit Salinger in Indy, too. And then she gave me a kiss on my little head and told me she loved me. Awwwww! I love her, too!
And then Auntie Laura and Salinger were in the car headed back to Indy. I already miss them and hope I can see then again real soon.
The reason Auntie Laura and Salinger came to visit was to plant a tree in memory of Stubby. After he left for the Bridge, they promised they would come to visit Momma and Daddy as soon as the weather got warm.
Momma and Auntie Laura went to the nursery to get a tree but found this beautiful pink flowering sweet almond shrub and thought it would be perfect. Momma doesn't have any pictures of the actual planting of the tree because her phone wasn't cooperating.
The shrub is perfect and I am going to water it every day. It is going to grow big and tall and fill this corner up. Stubby always played in this corner and so do I which is why Momma thought this would be the perfect place to plant it.
Thank you again, Auntie Laura and Salinger, for giving me such a magical weekend. The food, the gifts, the shrub, and the time we spent together were awesome. Your friendship means the world to me and I will never forget this weekend. Stubby was one lucky pug to have such great friends like you.
