I am Walter and this is my World.

Super ultra pug-butt thanks to Loren Boyce in Medford, Mass who sent Walter the COOLEST presents! A little Booda pig with a serious squeaker toy in it and a whole bunch of little perfect colorful pug-sized balls that are hard enough to bounce, but soft enough for a lil pug mouth to maw on them and make them squeak too! Wally loved them and we had our first quazi-game of catch!

There was also the smallest Kong ball I've ever seen, also perfect pug size and a jar of peanut butter. This photo makes me smile - look how worried wally is! I'm spreading peanut butter in the Kong, but with how many medications Wally has gotten, pills, salves creams etc...he wasn't sure it was a treat he was getting, not at first! He's looking up, saying "WHAT is she doing? Is anyone going to get me out of this or not??"

I can't believe how many people - perfect strangers- have sent Walter the kindest most thoughtful gifts. Every single gift he's gotten has become essential somehow. The healing blanket he sleeps on, the Indy blogger treats he lives for! Pug people are the best people on the whole earth. We will conduct a scientific study to prove this as soon as Wally is well enough for his trip across America to meet his fans!

Wow, that's quite a haul, Walter! I love that look on your face! And you have every right to be suspicious of what your mom was up to next -- you've been through soooo much! But this time it's all good!

Wally, please come to Canada on your tour too!! I can offer deluxe puggy accommodations here - I am sure Mom and Dad can give up their bed for you!
So glad you are feeling the love from so many friends - you are one special guy.

We love the look on Walter's face. Hopefully as he gets better he will be less suspicious of treats :)

We love our kongs. Mom puts peanut butter and banana in ours and then puts them into the freezer for a nice cool treat!

Stubby said...

Oh Wally! Your little face is so cute. I can understand not trusting your mom with the kong, but she only put peanut butter in it.

How great that you got all kinds of cool gifts. You are a superstar Wally and we can't wait to meet you on your tour of North America!

Stubby xoxo

Oh Walter, I am so glad to see that your mom tortures you the same way mine does! I posted a little about it on my bloggie today... the constant pills and whatnot.

You are looking EXTRA adorable with your worried little face! You have nothing to worry about, sweet boy! Look how many people love you!
