Pug Notes!

We'd like to give a shout out to Melissa and Emmitt at Pug Notes. We ordered a bunch of fun stuff from note cards, return address labels to canvases. I would have liked to order more but the ole budget only allows for so much, ya know what I mean?...

Yesterday our canvases arrived and we LOVE them!!  

Hang on Betty, I only gots 2 paws!

 Mom, what's with the big box? It's a lot of treats and toys, huh? Ahhh, you shouldn't have.

A picture of us?! From Emmitt's mom? Sure it's pugtastic, but can we eat it?

Frenchie fabulous! Bright and sassy just like me.

We love all our stuff, Melissa! And there are so many images to chose from, but honestly it wasn't tough to make a choice once I saw these...

If you haven't visited Pug Notes already or said hello to Melissa and her pug Emmitt at their blog, then you've been missing out.

Shannon and the gassy gang.

Are your eyes really that big in real life? I had a characture done once and the lady focused on my cone head and my big lips....

I love my blogging friends!!

Hi Stella, Gunther & Betty! The canvases are pawsome. They really look like you guys and they are going to look great in your house.

Melissa is so talented and everything she creates is so special.

I LOVE the pictures!!! Really really nice!!!!!!!! Melissa does wonderful work!!!
When we are going to have company we clean a lot too but it is never enough. Tom and I are allergic too but the love we feel for the animals makes us find a way. If ever you start having trouble, let me know, we found a solution.
Kiss the pups, Bambi & Fern

What fun artwork! I'll be sure to get over to the Melissa's blog - need to check out what else she does! Are those custome, or just got lucky with how similar they look to you all (or as they say in the South, y'all). Love the sign off :)

Hello Stella, Gunther and Betty
We visit Melissa and Emmitt a lot and saw your wonderful pictures and wanted to see you open them.
They look just like you all, you are adorable - Stella is so tiny!
Mum loves pugs and is always begging Dad to let her have one... maybe one day.
