This morning I was SOO ready to go when Mom got up. Belly rubs, please?
Mom packed up the cooler. It's got plenty of space so she packed up all her school stuff in it, too.
Umbrella - to keep cooler and pug.. uh.. well.. cool.
See? There was shade available, too, but I liked it under my umbrella!
Today we were meeting up with several of Mom's friends down at the campus. So I didn't only help Mom, I helped LOTS of peoples. And there were foodables and water and attention and all sorts of nice things. Anything a puggie enjoys. Now I'll snore for a while to prepare for more work in the morning.

Studyday Saturday

Because Monday is a public holiday and Mom doesn't have access at school on Sundays and stuff (she's supposed to, but something didn't work right and since she doesn't usually study during the weekends she hasn't bothered fixing it) she's brought all her books back home. Here she's been preparing for a study Saturday.
I help with encouraging snores!
I also help her play Mario Kart Wii when she's taking a break.

I also have some pictures to share from Thursday. We had a visitator! A sleep over party!
Isn't she a cutie? She spent the night on the couch with me. She was even clever enough to bring a bribe! It was a pig's tail and it tasted just yummy.
She told Mom that every time she'd turned her back on me I'd paw on her back to make her turn back around. BOL.. Who says pugs are not smart? Huh? She was in town for a job interview so I sure hope she gets it and will come visit me again.

Hope you're having great Saturdays. It's HOT here today. By our standards anyways.
Kisses from Bajas.

Airborne Virus

Sorry we've been a bit absent.. Busy busy... On Wednesday Morning Mom and Virus went away and only Mom came back home.

Virus on the Airport Express Train.

After arriving at the airport they went to the cargo building...

Virus got locked up for good...
Then he apparently went on one of these!
...and off to his date with Våfflan!

Hope you all have a great FRIDAY! Mom's got her two last exams early next week so she'll be reading more or less none stop, but at least she'll be here home with me!

Thank you! (graphic..=)

Mom thinks she did okay on her exam. I rewarded her by greeting her with an appartment covered in diarrhea... Ooops... She was planning to cook - but now she
a) spent a lot of time cleaning and
b) lost her appetite

Double oops..

Manic Monday!

I've got a favor to ask of you! Tomorrow is Mom's grammar exam. Since we're way ahead of most of you, you can just cross your fingers when you go to bed tonight and hopefully she'll do allright. Being her mentor and assistant I do feel responsible for her achievements. At least now I know the do in the previous sentence is a grammatical auxiliary used to create the emphatic affirmative.

So to the fun part - a few pictures from Saturday!

After getting off the train Auntie took me for a run. Yay!

All that excitement and Grandpa's arrival made me very happy, as you can clearly see from my expression.

Now this is a real Paparazzi! Grandpa took his photography seriously. As always.

You see the paparazzi in this picture, too, but more importantly you can see ME helping G.Grandma in the kitchen.

Oh - and here you can see the human pup actually wearing the bib Mom knitted. Neat - that means she occasionally does something useful.

Have great Mondays everyone!

Sunday Studies

Mom and I are at Grandpa's place. I like his table - it's got chin support in perfect pug hight!

Can you see Mom's got the best book support in the world? ;) She's got her grammar exam on Tuesday and is panicking a leetle bit, since she missed two whole repetition days with her migraine.

Party, party!

Mom's Grandma, our Great Grandma turns 85 on Monday! Now that's pretty old! So we're heading over to say happy barkday!
These pix are from Christmas so you might have seen them before, but that doesn't really matter now does it?

Mom's head cleared up last night so thankfully we're ready to go. I see both bus and train in my future. Yay!

Tired Friday

Mom's in migraine-mode. She's better today than yesterday, but we're doing pretty much nothing... No fun pictures or stories to tell, so here are a few more knitting projects. Two baby bibs - the brown one is cotton (eating bib) and the dark turqouise is a drooling bib (wool).
There's supposed to be a stegosaurus on this one, but Mom wasn't too happy with how the pattern turned out. You can see it makes Virus cranky, too!
Hope you all have great weekends!

Something old

Mom got this from Grandpa a while back.. It used to be in the bathroom of Grandma and Grandpa's house. One blue (Aunties) and this one - with their tootbrushes in. Can you see it's Jiminy Cricket? (Mom didn't notice until now..) It's a bit old and worn and his eyes had fallen off ages ago.

Mom went out and got a whole load of eyes!
Don't you think he looks much better now?

Knitting washcloths..

Mom's been knitting..
...and Virus helping?!
Finished cloth with hearts.
And one with a pawprint..
Mom thought it's pretty cute. As long as she's not washing us we're okay with it, too!

Our May 17th.

Crowded downtown - lots of people dressing up, eating ice cream and singing.

I mostly spent my time sleeping in Mom's lap, though! She was knitting. Will show you the result tomorrow. ;)

Happy Birthday Norway!

Today, May 17th, is our Constitutional Day.

We're mostly relaxing today - with Mom's foot and all. But we're happy to live in a nation where the National Day is celebrated with music and children and games and none of that military parade stuff!

Here's a little video I found on YouTube from last years celebration to give a slight indication of the childrens parade. :)

Hope you all have great, relaxing Sundays!

Silly Saturday

Okay - Mom and Auntie Anna went to a museum and were all silly today. Mom did it all with a limp.. Clumsy as she is she almost fell yesterday - and tried severing her little toe from the foot by putting it on the wrong side of a metal bar (well - wrong side if you want it to go along with the rest of the foot..). It's all nice and swollen and bloody.. But they already had plans, and she couldn't bare the thought of sitting with her leg up ALL day..

She's done some sitting too, though.. So she knitted up something to keep her cell phone (or mp3player) in..

Pink......or red.. Neither turned out perfect, but that's what you get when you make up a pattern as you go. The first one (red) is a bit too wide, while the pink one ain't all that bad but the "flip" part could have been wider (that's what you get for over compensating).

Now they've even got little handles!

So let's see these two grown women at the museum acting all mature:

Auntie walking the tight rope.. BOL.. And ignore Mom's gibberish.. (That's Norwegian for ya!)
Now do you think they caused a leak?
(Mom's note: this is an exhibit on the environmen changes and challenges - and as you might guess it's playing on the increasing water levels among other things.)

Mom playing with colour shadows!

Tomorrow is our Constitutional Day so hopefully we'll squeeze in a little celebration (I really just want some ice cream!). We were planning a hike, but no such luck..
