One Year Ago Today

Thanks for walking down Stubby memory lane last week.  Momma loved reading all the sweet comments everyone had to say about Stubby.  It's good to know that he lives on in everyone's hearts.

One year ago today, I was picked up on the streets of Grand Prairie, TX.  Animal services found me as I was chasing after cars.  I don't like to talk about my past that much because it's taken me a while to forget about it but I thought I would mention it today because it was the turning point in my life.  My new life began one year ago today.

Animal services contacted the wonderful people of DFW Pug Rescue who came, swooped me up, and help me close, telling me everything would be okay.  I was frightened, cold, and hungry.  

The next thing I knew I was getting examined at the vet and then taken to a wonderful foster home where I lived with three awesome pugs and two amazing humans.  The rest, as they say, is history.

My life is so different today than it was one year ago today.  I've never let the past dictate my future and I never will.  I look back today only to remind myself how lucky I am to be where I am today.  I have the greatest parents any pug could ever want, a loving home where my every whim is taken care of, and the best friends a girl could ever have - you.


  1. Tiffy,
    This is a day to celebrate for sure! I am so thankful to all the wonderful people in TX that helped you. Without them, we wouldn't have had the opportunity to know you, and that would have been a loss in all of our lives. So Happy Rescue Day to you! (This is where you can ask your 'rents for a treat!)

  2. We didn't know Stubby but we can tell he was loved very much! We are lucky that we are getting to know you and your pawrents sure are lucky that someone found you and that now have this awesome life! Pug Hugs ~ Zoe, Peyton, Webster & Liberty

  9. Tiffy
    You my little friend have helped so many of us.
    You and your wonderful family have helped us smile when we did not know we could anymore.
    The story of you being on the streets and how you were rescued is just an amazing story. But just as amazing is how your momma and daddy opened their "hurting hearts"- open wide- to love you and at the same time allowed you to love them.
    This was ment to be, and we are so thankful Tiffy- that you are now part of our lives,,,, and YOU have healed our hearts.

  10. Oh Tiffy! I celebrate every day of our friendship, too. I am sad Stubby bid farewell because he was a special pug; but his stepping aside left room for you in our lives.
    Love Noodles

  11. What a wonderful day to celebrate! We are so glad that you were found and rescued by DFW and then you were able to rescue your parents, too.
    You have helped each other heal.

  12. Tiffy, this day will always have a giant heart around it because it's the day love entered your life! God Bless you and your wonderful family!


  13. Happy Gotcha Day! Everyone's world got a little brighter a year ago.

  14. You are lucky pug, but I think your parents are lucky to have you too. Adopt, don't shop !!
