Three Little Pigs


This is a picture of Gizmo, Oopsy, and Martine, all together on the bed. Oopsy is still learning what it’s like to live here, and she’s got some things down, but not others. For example, she knows that the best place to be at night is right on top of Tricia’s head, hogging all the pillows. However, she doesn’t yet fully appreciate, “don’t step on the humans.” She will walk on top of you without understanding that you want her to walk around you. This isn’t so bad for us (Oopsy is light), but even though she’s not anywhere near aggressive towards Martine, she’s a little bit… inconsiderate? Oblivious?

Oopsy definitely is a good dog, but she just needs to learn the rules a bit better.

Meet Oopsy!


Meet Oopsy.  She is a nearly three year old pug, which means that she was born right after Hurricane Katrina and lived as a very young puppy in Pug City (and here).  Her mother is Ipsy (who was on a Jones Soda Bottle), and her father is Gonnie, who is Gizmo and Gadget’s brother.  That means that G&G are her uncles!

Oopsy is going to live with us either temporarily or permanently, it’s not entirely clear yet.  However, for the time that she is here, we wanted to have her stay with us for a few reasons.  First, she’s very little.  She’s half the size of Gadget, easily.  That means that we now have a “little pug” for our “little girl” (Martine).  


Second, Oopsy is very active.  She runs around and and plays a lot.  Gadget does not run around and play.  He’s totally laid back.  Gizmo, on the other hand, does like to play.  However, it’s hard for a Pug to play when only one Pug wants to play.  Having Oopsy around means that Gizmo now has someone to chase.

There’s lots more to say about Oopsy, and I’ll get to it in time. So, for now, we’re living with three pugs, all of whom want to sleep in the bed that only has so much room.

We’re Back!


Ok, where to start? Just after arriving back home from living in Baton Rouge for 6 weeks, we immediately turned around and visited Tricia’s parents in Hilton Head. However, this time, we did something different — we took G&G with us! It was Gizmo and Gadget’s first REAL road trip! We drove through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. Of course, they’ve been to shows before, but they’ve been retired champions since 8 months (Gadget) and 9 months (Gizmo), so they really haven’t been on any trips for as long as they can remember.

Since Tricia’s parents live near the beach, this picture is of Gizmo, Gadget, and Martine together on the beach. Also, you can click here to see an entire album of pictures from the trip. There are some of Gizmo running around, and a few good shots of them with my new camera (Digital Rebel XSi).

After we got back from that trip, we recovered for a day, and then I started school (my 3rd year in law school). After a few days of school, the whole city had to evacuate because of Hurricane Gustav. However, we had already planned to go to New York for a wedding that weekend, and our flight was supposed to return us last Monday (Labor Day). We decided to go on the trip, and we left Gizmo and Gadget with my parents, who evacuated to Baton Rouge.

We ended up having to stay in New York and Philadelphia for a few days, while Gizmo and Gadget had to rough it in Baton Rouge without any power (or air conditioning). Fortunately, it wasn’t as hot as it could have been, and they managed to stay out of the heat.

Oh! One more thing, and it’s very important — We have a NEW ADDITION. However, you’ll have to check back later to see what (who?) it is.

Hurrcane Pugs!

This is just a quick update.  Gizmo and Gadget are safely evacuated to Baton Rouge.  However, Tricia, Martine, and I went to a wedding in New York for the weekend, and our flight back to New Orleans is, of course, canceled.   So … we’re stuck up north for the time being.
