Customer Photo Gallery ~ Knox Loves his New Dog Bed!

My friend Janet B. from PA just rescued 3 more puggies to add to her family and now has 7! Bless her heart. She is so wonderful.
A few weeks ago, Janet emailed me to let me know she was going to meet and pick up one pug and she came home with 3. I smiled and knew what happened! She could not leave any of them behind.
Here is Knox who just came home on Saturday. I think he has claimed the new dog bed as his already!
Welcome home Knox, Becca and Butch and thank you Janet for sharing the photo for our Customer Photo Gallery!
I love receiving your feedback, photos and stories! Please feel free to contact me anytime!
I would love to post your pug photos and stories in the Customer Photo Gallery and the Quarterly Newsletter in the Meet The Pugs section.

Emmitt and I are already working on it and would love to share his favorite recipe, photos, stories and events! It is jam packed with fun!

Customer Photo Gallery ~ Books & Calendars

I am so excited! Two wonderful customers from TN and IL sent me pictures yesterday of their families enjoying their Pug Notes Books & Calendars. I have added them to the Customer Photo Gallery.

I smiled from ear to ear when I got these photos and emails…

The first set of pictures is from Beth M. from TN:

Melissa, I wanted to send you some pics of your drawings I used from a calendar I bought a couple of years ago. I saved the calendar to use specifically for this purpose. I absolutely love the prints, and everyone goes nuts when they see them over the crib. I also have a pug light switch cover and night light in the room. And lots of other pug art! It’s adorable!! I’m hoping she will automatically be predisposed to loving pugs with them surrounding her in the room. Sincerely, Beth M., TN

In related news, I just released the new 2010 Dog Art and Pug Art calendars with a new fun retro dot border around each image…

The second wonderful customer photo is of Amanda, Matt and Maggie the pug enjoying their Story, Activity and Coloring books. The Photo is courtesy of Pat. S., from IL 
I love creating and sharing new books. I am working on a new one now that I hope to be able to show you soon. 🙂
Here are the available books in the Pug Notes Library…

Emmitt and I love to share the stories and paintings that come from our journey and see how they fit into your journey’s too!

Thank you so much for visiting and sharing with us!
