Let’s Go Red Sox!

Boston Red Sox might be in trouble this season. It seems like they might need a little extra cheer to boost their spirits!
Move over Wally the Green Monster, here comes Preston the Puggle!

Little Helper

Preston loves going to pastry shops with mommy. He always waits patiently outside the store.
He knows that mommy has her hands full with his leash, the coffee and the “goodie bag” from the pastry shop. He volunteers to be mommy’s little helper.

New Night-night spot

This always makes Mommy and Daddy smile…

Good Communication

Preston knows how to communicate with Mommy and Daddy. That’s why he always gets what he wants.

When hungry…

When nature calls…

(As much as Mommy and Daddy wish, the dog on the cover is not Preston.)
FYI:Poochie Bells

When it is time for his walk…

When he wants some cereal…

“Table Manners”

“Eat!” is the command that Preston rarely misses. However, he is very adamant about following his eating etiquette.

p.s. he was eating chicken liver.

Puggle Grooming

Since Preston is a big snuggler, Mommy pays special attention to his grooming. After all, no one likes to snuggle with a stinker!
Mommy keeps Preston clean and smelling fresh with
1) HOTdog shampoo by Fruits & Passion.
2) Waterless Foam Shampoo by Paul Mitchell.
3) Stinky Butts Spritz by Mellow Mutts.
4) Furminator deShedder
Preston helps drying a bit easier for Mommy.

58 toys and counting

One of the most amazing talent Preston has is remembering the names of his toys. Many people have asked Mommy and Daddy how they train Preston to do that. Well…. Mommy and Daddy can’t take much credit for this. The only thing they do is name the toys and tell Preston what they are. He gets it right away and never forgets it.
Here is a video showing Preston opening the package his friend Clover sent him and learning the name of the new toy. (Warning- 5-min video).

(mommy can’t stand her own voice in the video. she swears she doesn’t talk to humans with that baby voice…only to Preston and he loves it :-))

Hockey Puck and Stick

Preston’s dear friend, Clover, sent Preston a Canadian hockey stick for his birthday last year. This Christmas, Preston got an Ottawa Senator’s hockey puck from Clover. It seems like Mommy will have to start shopping for skates for Preston soon.
Thank you, Clover!

Preston never forgets how kind and thoughtful Clover is.

Time to go nite nite

See how Preston gets ready for bed.

A surprise from Clover

Preston’s friend Clover sent him a surprise package all the way from Ottawa, Canada!
It was sent more than a month ago but Preston didn’t get it until today… Ottawa must be far far away!
Preston couldn’t wait to open up his surprise.

Let’s see what the surprise is!

There are more goodies from Clover. Thank you, Clover!
Preston stole the hockey stick when mommy was taking the picture.
