    I'm sorry that happened Elisha! I'll look into a better description for the location. I sent you an email also.

    Oh no!! So sorry about that. We were watching for you and Heidi was checking up at her front door a few times because sometimes people go up the wrong driveway. The correct driveway is at the yellow sign, and there is a fence connected to the outer building. Let's see, there's a basketball hoop there. If you're coming next month, I'll make sure you have a phone number just in case (I think I'll be there next month). I hope you'll come.

    We went but there were no cars. When we knocked no one answered. We thought we were at the right house. We ended up leaving. Bummed. Hopefully we get it figured out for next month.

    hey fellow pug lovers! I'm looking forward to meeting you all. in the meantime, I have a question... Has anyone had their pugs noses opened more through surgery? Our vet suggested doing it when our puppy gets spayed (she's 15 weeks now... so its still a little ways off). He said he would make a tiny cut in her nostrils to help her breathe better. I know that she snores and snorts and stuff (as pugs do), but I don't feel that she has an excessively difficult time breathing, and I don't want to do the procedure unnecessarily. what do you guys think? should we do it? does it make a big difference? does it change the appearance of the nose? is it painful? Thank you in advance for any advice and suggestions. :-)

      We had Daphne's nares widened when she was spayed. They were pretty narrow and the vet said they could possibly widen a bit more naturally as she grew, but the other thing to consider was that you want to be particularly cautious about putting pugs (and other brachycephalic breeds) under anesthesia. So we had it done vs risk having to put her under again later. We don't plan on doing it for our other pug, Olive - she doesn't seem to have any issues. You might want to consider getting another opinion, asking your vet more about why she/he thinks it should be done, and/or taking a look at other pugs' noses at the meetup and see how your puppy's nares look in comparison. (cont. . .)

      Daphne did not seem bothered at all by the nose surgery (but then again, she's a pretty sturdy girl and not phased by much). MSU did some studies and found the nares surgery heals best without stitches, so that may be something to ask your vet about too - it was nice not having to get stitches removed later on as I think that might have been irritating to her. Hope that gives you some info to consider! Looking forward to meeting you and your pup!

    Jenna I would suggest a second or even third opinion That's what I would do. At the very least I would maybe wait until she is more full grown.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
