    Here are some pics of our Pug. My wife named her Gidget....lol

    These are shortly after we got her.

    NIKON D40    ---    52mm    f/5.6    1/60s    ISO 400

    NIKON D40    ---    52mm    f/5.6    1/60s    ISO 400

    NIKON D40    ---    26mm    f/4.0    1/60s    ISO 400

    Here she is roughly a month ago. She had a rough week. Started on a Wednesday...she got spayed, plus a couple baby teeth pulled then on the weekend she got out of the house while I was letting my daughter out and she got hit by a car. It broke her back leg clean in two and she had to have a pin put in since it was a clean break.

    Great shots telling your dog's story! I'm a BIG pug fan, so thanks for sharing these shots of yours.

    Yeah, the lady that hit her did come right back to check on her. She told me if there was any way should could help to let her know...well I take that as she could assist financially, but I was wrong. The vet bill just to take her and have her checked out that night was $260. They quoted that it would cost us $2K if we took her to the college for the surgery, but they found out our local vet could do it for less. It ended up costing us $560 to go through our local vet. I mentioned to the lady how much it was going to cost us and she gave me some sob story about how she was hurting for money, not like I had that much just laying around either. I didn't expect her to pay all of it, just part of it as to me it was both of our faults. We live on a bad curve and she admitted to going to fast. Fortunately it didn't cost what we thought it would and we made it work.

    I LOVE black pugs.
    Good shots, and she's ADORABLE.

    Might I suggest a baby gate put up somewhere near your door so that your pup won't escape the home anymore?
    We have a baby gate between our foyer and our livingroom so that our dog won't dart out the front door. I had to train my children that the gate isn't opened until the front door is closed when coming inside. And the front door isn't opened until the baby gate is closed when going outside. But it didn't take long to teach them.:biggrin:

    Your little dog is a real honey. Glad that she is ok. It is SO SCARY when they get out like that. I live in fear that my dog might get out and get hit by a car. She is pretty good about staying in the house or yard, too lazy to go outside. I would worry more about the kitty, she is not an outdoor cat.

    Thank you for this series.
