Scammer Alert & Help Needed!

1)  BEWARE OF SCAMMERS SELLING PUPPIES! 

I emailed a few breeders Tuesday evening to inquire as to whether or not they test for PDE susceptibility. Even though I am not considering adding another Pug to my life right now, I want to know for the future. I received one response Wednesday morning, but it did not answer my question. I replied back with the question again and answered the breeders questions. Today I received a reply and it was a scam trying to get me to send money in advance to ship a "puppy" from Virginia to Washington State! This really pisses me off. He even sent 3 photos of "Jenny" the puppy.  There were so many inconsistencies in his email.  Can you imagine how many people are being scammed using this technique?  So irritating!
What an awful thing to do and to play on someone's heartstrings! Stupid jerk. What's really strange about it is that they ask the appropriate questions that breeders ask. I honestly believed that it was legit and he was being for real he said he lived in Virginia and needed payment to ship a puppy to me!  I hadn't even told him that I wanted a puppy.   FYI - The person and his email is Dean Igsler <digsler@yahoo.com>

"Anniversary" Week

I can’t believe 3/31/13 will be a year since Emma passed away.  I honestly thought I’d be OK by now.  I attended a Pug Rescue Event last month and I had to go outside to get some air.   Seeing so many beautiful fawn Pug girls running around the place truly got to me and I started having a panic attack.

A few months ago I started to question whether or not I will ever bond with another Pug, besides my bond with Meeko.

 In reference to opening my heart to another Pug, a friend said the following:
They do not end the pain, but they provide some needed distractions from it so that time can heal and make it easier to cope and live with the loss. Know that you might not ever experience the same kind of bond as you did with Emma.  Once you realize that is ok, it opens your heart to love in a different way.

After the Pug rescue event, a friend told me this:
You might try forcing yourself to attend more events where there are lots of pugs.  Be receptive and embrace every one of them that reminds you of Emma, because each one will give you a little more love to fill that hole. 

They’re right and I'm going to try my best to follow their advice.  This post was originally only going to be about Remembering Emma, but I went off track.  I guess that’s ok since you’re supposed to talk about how you’re feeling at that moment in blogs.   So, to get back on track, here are some photos of Emma during the 5 wonderful years we were blessed to have her in our lives as part of our family.  There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of her.  She will forever be in my heart.   I will be posting in memory of Emma on my facebook page every day this week https://www.facebook.com/puggedbymeeko
