All Night Long!

The advantage of having a new pug arrive after your human child is that the new pug doesn’t have the experience of years of sleeping with YOU.  Last night Demi slept all night with Martine in her toddler bed. G&G are too used to our bed to make their way into Marine’s room (but you never know)

Demi was supposed to stay with us for a little while, then go live with my parents, as a companion for their current solo pug, Lexy.  However, last night Martine stayed in her bed ALL NIGHT, even though she woke up and cried.  Somehow, having Demi there kept her in her bed.  If this keeps up, we might just have to keep Demi with us…  or maybe we can train Gadget to sleep there in Demi’s place.

What’s different about this picture?

First, go look at this post and this one.  Take a look at the pictures there.  Then, look at these pictures, and try to figure out the differences.

There are three differences in these pictures.
  1. There is a third pug.  But, the third pug is Demi, not Oopsy.  Oopsy has gone back to live with Tricia’s mother, and Demi has come to New Orleans.  See pictures of Demi here, here, and here.
  2. Gadget has lost 10 pounds.  He’s a lot skinnier — we even had to get him a new collar!! (Although, if you look at the first link to a picture of Demi, it’s a post dated November 11, 2005, where I mention that Gadget is only 21 pounds — he was just about 2 years old, then)
  3. The baby in the picture is not Martine.  It’s Marigny!  Yes, that’s right, we now have TWO human children.  Marigny’s name comes from the Faubourg Marigny, a neighborhood in New Orleans, which itself is named after Bernard Xavier Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville, whose family’s lands became the neighborhood.  Her name is more about being unique (as we have an extremely common last name) and representing our (and her) hometown.  It’s pronounced like “air” and “knee” — Mair-a-knee.  Martine is taking fabulously to being a big sister.  She absolutely LOVES baby.  Here is a picture of Martine holding her little sister:
