Merry Christmas to all my friends at Saints.

Thought I would give you my end of year report, lots of exciting things this year.

First and foremost, I am doing well, not getting enough food of course, but this diabetes thing keeps me on a pretty strict diet. I eat well, bark and howl at food times just to let everyone know when to eat. Also by 10am if I am not out sunbathing, I begin to "howl like a little banshee"......mums words of course. Because of this cute little habit, I am spending my winters in Texas now.

We now have a house in Texas, and though it was a very long trip will all 9 of us pugs, (4 days) it was worth it to miss the snow and cold. Temperatures in the high 70s to 80s is great for my tan. When it gets too hot in the spring we will come back to Grand Forks for the summer, and back here to Abilene in the fall.

I am 13 now, and despite my DM and CAH I am enjoying life to the fullest. And as always I want to remind you that it is due to you all at SAINTS that I was given this second chance at a forever home. I am loved and admired by all, and mum says she doesn't know what she would do without me.....she wouldn't know when it is time to get up for starters,....5:30am!! It is important that I am fed on time, and no-one is allowed to forget that.

Merry Christmas, and I hope that all the SAINTS friends have the greatest year ever coming up.

Love Bella the pug..............oh and mum (aka Joan) says to say hi for her too.



Pepsi challenge has a new box a the bottom of the sign in area where you have to type in what's in the box above. I missed it the first few times and couldn't figure out why I was unable to sign in.

Hope that helps!


I want to go and live with Joan (Bella's mom) and live that life too. Not sure about getting up at 5:30 though......


This has made my Christmas season that much better , Thank you Bella(Pugsley)for keeping in touch with us, it is so great to hear that you are doing well & keeping your humans on their toes & under control.

I will think of you Christmas Morning basking in the Texas sun while your humans keep your water cool and shade over your sleek tanned bod.
