Memorable Moment Monday (Pudgie)
My mom has lost both her dogs this week. Abby her sheltie was only 4 years old and losing her was a big surprise. Ginger her other dog is literally lost but she is very old and very ill so my mom is thinking maybe she went off somewhere so she could die. It is so sad to lose a pet. They become such a part of our lives. Thinking about my mom losing them both got me to thinking about the dog we had when I was growing up. Her name was Pudgie. She was a pug pekingese mix and she was a mess.
She climbed up trees. Notice I said UP. She would climb the tree them whine and whimper till mom would get her. She used to say "water" when she wanted something to drink. When I was little I had a kitten who was deaf (white cat blue eyes) and Pudgie used to help her safely cross the street. It was the funniest thing.
The thing I remember most about Pudgie though is something you probably won't believe. At one point we lived in a house behind my Dad's office. The property was fairly good sized and the crews would do work there on days they didn't have any work to do on the rigs. There was an intercom type thing installed that sounded over some kind of speakers outside. Pudgie would go back in forth with my mom from the house to the office. One day my mom came back home and didn't realize she had left Pudgie in the office. The dog got up on the desk, pushed the intercom button and barked until someone came and let her out.... no kidding.
