Puppy Mill Protestin' and a Coon Hound

Would you take a look at Hank and Ms. Molly O' Mally's mom and her friend Wendy! She's the one on the left in case you're wonderin'. Mom said she was protesting the pet stores that sells puppies from puppy mills.  This is especially touchin' to the parents 'cause their first Pug child came from a puppy mill pet store. He crossed over the rainbow bridge when he was only 1 years old from bein' so sick.  

You tell 'em Ms. Sarah & Wendy!

That's not the only thing Hank and Ms. Molly O' Mally's mom was protesting this week. She was also bitchin' that the Coon Hound always gets the shaft at the Westminster Dog Show. Well the Coon Hound AND the Pug. Hello Ms. Sarah, let's not forget 'bout us!

Anyhoo... mom couldn't believe her eyes (not ears, 'cause Ms. Sarah always sends emails) 'cause the parents had friends stayin' for the long weekend and they brought their Coon Hound, Molly.

We haven't ever seen a Coon Hound  before. So, I had to check under the hood to see what the fuss was all about.

We did a lot of sightseeing with Molly and the parents that really wore me out...

Then,  the parents tried to get us all together for a picture. Molly must not be used to the puperattzi.

Psst, Molly.. Over here.

Work with 'em Molly. Ya wanna be here all day?

Dayum... Molly! Even Betty is impressed with your farting capabilities.

I don't know 'bout these Coon Hounds Ms. Sarah.

That last image- well what can I say - I guess it is ok to sniff crack when you a cutie Puggy Wug.

God bless those wonderful ladies for their protests about the despicable puppy mills!
Those photos are hilarious, Molly certainly has comic value as well as good looks - thanks for the laugh!

Mastiffs too! Sob! They never even get best in group.

That coonhound tail is most impressive and it looks like some most fascinating farts. Perhaps that is what puts off the judges given how they are always poking around the show doggies private area.

OMD - Mango always thinks of the funniest things to say!! I was thinking that a coonhound tail is probably about the right level to give us sumshfaces a good lashing. Happens to me all the time with Mason. I'm standing there, minding my own business, and fwap, fwap, fwap, fwap - right across the ol' kisser! And it never even crosses his labrabrain to wag his tail a little higher for my convenience. Sheesh!!

Yoda & Brutus said...

That last picture is the best! Alot of sniffing going on over there - Brutus would fit right in. He likes to sniff and he is gassy :)

Pugs & Kisses,

great job on the puppy mill campaign. keep fighting! as for coon hounds and pugs not getting recognition--that is really good don't you think? then everyone won't go out and buy one!

Samantha said...

Looks like Stella, Gunther and Betty still have a thing or two to teach Molly about pictures!! :p

Frankie Furter said...

Farts are such fun. I just wish the lasted a little longer, don't you???
That puppy mill protest is grrreat. You go guys!!
I still think that Mango Minster is much better for US than that stupid Westminster. Such snobs. I'm just sayin'.

Gunther, you look so adorable when you're exhausted. A sleeping babe, aaah. Now that you've checked twice under a Coon Hound's hood, what are they like?
I also heard some rumors that a certain Ms Betty has been testing a certain Ms Stella. Bad idea, my furiend, tsk tsk

Maybe Molly just thinks that is her best side

Hank said...

Gunther, buddy....first off, thanks fer the shout out fer my mom and Aunt Wendster (that's whut we call her 'round here).

Now I figger the Pug gits the shaft at Westminster 'cause our breed is obviously superior an' the judges don't wanna make the others feel bad, ya know?

BUT.....the Coonhound?? Why is The Man always keepin' 'em down?!

Anyhoo, I'm glad ya had a good time with that Molly gal. An' she's at just the right butt-sniffin' height!

Power to the Coonhounds! (raised fist)

Diane said...

I commend your friends for taking the time to boycot the pet stores selling puppy mill dogs. BRAVO FOR THEM!!! I love your pictures, your blog & your ever so witty posts! It's always a good laugh when I stop by. Pug owners have the best sense of humor! Hugs, Diane
