Pug mania & other creatures

Our nephew is a foster parent to pug dogs. He actually has 8 dogs total, 3 cats, 2 ferrets, 1 bird & fish. He adopted 2 of the pugs. He and his family went out of town for 6 days and he asked my husband to go take care of the ZOO 3 times per day. We only live a few miles from him, so Mike thought it would be easy to go over and take care of them.....Well, I ended up going with him at feeding time to help. The dogs were divided into 3 different rooms and each had their names on bowls with the amount of food they get. I tell you, it was not an easy job! My hubby would feed the other zoo animals and I just stuck to feeding the dogs and then letting them all out after they ate. The ferrets had a 3 story condo they live in with a hammock. It is the funniest thing to see that little weezle laying in that hammock, not a care in the world.....I ended up with all the pugs in my lap when I sat outside...they were starved for attention.......What an experience we had.......I have to admit I sort of bonded with some of them.....their names are: Rocky, Hollie, Jazz, Johnny, Hank, Yoko, Charger & Koon .........

I had to laugh because I can actually see the ferret lounging in the hammock. That's funny!

The picture of ferret fashion is too funny! My brother always had pet ferrets. They are very stinky animals. The pugs are just adorable. We are dog people here.

I don't think I have ever seen a ferret look cute before and I just want to snuggle those pups.

Wow! That looks like a job! I guess if ferrets would be cute, that one would be.

My son wants a ferret really, really bad. Every once in a while he asks me to take him to a pet store so he can play with one. Eh, let him get his fix.

I would love to get him one but I figure if the animal has its own spray to keep it smelling clean I don't think I want one in my house.
