PUG LIFE: Parenthood!
Meet Rampage Jackson Berry and Mayhem Miller Berry. Those are just working titles..er names. Himself called me last week from work to tell me a co-worker was adopting a pug puppy and did I want to do the same. He didn't have to wait for my reply. We went to see the little critters on Saturday and we're takin' two!!! I am beyond excited. Except for feeling like I'm cheating on Devlin's memory, I am alive with anticipation. I'm even reading up on how to train puppies correctly. A little tentative that I might be taking on too much but they're soooo cute and small. Calm and assertive, Suz, calm and assertive.
Himself is fixed on Rampage and Mayhem. We follow mixed marital arts. Rampage Jackson and Mayhem Miller are fighters with the UFC. I like the irony of the names, but how does one shorten them into nicknames? It's inevitable. I can't see myself calling them..here Ramp....yo...May...dinner's ready! Doesn't work for me. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm definitely open. Our friend weighed in with some great ones, but I'm just not sure.
I really miss posting! I tried a drawing last night, but hated it. I have 7 paintings going, but keep getting graphic design work with uncomfortably tight deadlines and can't seem to catch up. Not complaining. But I need to paint and post, soon!

OMG!!!! I'm so jealous! Those are the cutest little critters with the roughest/toughest names there could be. I will look forward to their growin' up pix to come. Congrats on the new family members!ReplyDelete
Oh, BOY! Congratulations! They are certainly adorable. You could shorten Rampage Jackson to "Jack," but I can't think of a darn thing for Mayhem Miller.ReplyDelete
I'm thinking Page and Hemmy would be fun nicknames... Congrats on the new editions to the household. There will soon be no unchewed wood left on any of your furniture... Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Oh! They are so cuteeeeeeeee.....Love them!ReplyDelete
I'm so happy for your new additions...they are absolutely adorable. It's amazing how the heart has so much capacity for love. Just when you think you couldn't possibly love anyone as much as Dev, along come these two. Can't wait for the funny puppy stories!ReplyDelete

They're hardly UFC material! Too innocent and sweet IMHO.
Congratulations!!!! Don't feel disloyal. Instead know you're giving some more marvelous critters a good home. :)ReplyDelete
