Life can really be tough here living in New York City. Our jobs can be demanding and stressful, the rent keeps going up as neighborhoods gentrify and the Subway system continues to be a slow and sluggish piece of antiquated machinery that seems to make any simple commute a nightmare! Competition is fierce, the pace is fast and youâ€™ve got to give more and move fast if you want any good thing to last. The hours of the day steam roll by and weeks blend into months as we busily toil away with growing our careers and our 401K plans while trying to keep some semblance of a social life. In between all of that, the wrinkles pile up and the gray hair begins to showâ€”or in my case, the hair just falls out completely. Fortunately, through it all, I can always rely on Mamma Biscuit to save my world. When Iâ€™m feeling depressed or overwhelmed (or worse, after watching the world news) all I need to do is look down at my feet and there she is, blinking her watery eyes at me in her flirtatious way while giving me her signature pug head-tilt, gently reminding me that I better not leave the damn room until I place a peanut butter treat in her mouth. Boy do I love feeling her gums with my finger tips when she boisterously bites down on those treats. I can carry the entire weight of the worldâ€™s problems on my shoulders throughout the day but the moment I turn the key to the door at the Pug Palace, that weight is instantly lifted! Iâ€™m sure that Mammaâ€™s blog here acts like that kind refuge for you all as well. Throughout the day, you can log on and touch base with your favorite toothless pug on the internetâ€”and the stresses of that horrible meeting at work suddenly melt away. Checking in on Mamma Biscuit is a great way to forget about impending layoffs, difficult bosses or anyone looking to procrastinate! Some need coffee, most of us need the unbearable cuteness of a pug. Thatâ€™s why I have suited our little gremlin up like the hero she is to distract from the struggles of life. Armed with love, snorts and a long tongue, Mamma Biscuit is on a mission to make everyone across the globe smileâ€”and thatâ€™s the love bomb she drops!
Now isnâ€™t this pilot suit with built in hoody absolutely adorable? Mammaâ€™s like the pug version of Snoopyâ€”and I guess that would make me Charlie Brown considering I like to complain a lot too! Be thankful I was able to colorize these vintage photos of Mamma Biscuit perched upon a park bench before taking her position as pilot aboard her love plane! The plane brooch in gold metal is just the right touch for this ensembleâ€”and if you are all wondering why I didnâ€™t wrap a scarf around her neck, well, I just assumed her tongue would billow out in the wind instead! Our little gremlin is on a mission to save this world from boredom and stressâ€”one pug hug and a kiss at a time! Just watch out for the spittle falling from the sky!
On another note, Today marks the beginning of Halloween season and all we can say is be prepared! Weâ€™ve got some fun spooky tales to share with you all this month, all concluding with Mamma Biscuitâ€™s annual Halloween costumeâ€”and boy will it be epic this year!
Stay tuned. . . .
