Thinking of Isabelle

In yesterdays post I wrote about Indian Summer, according to the definition Indian Summer refers not only to weather, but to people as well.  Specifically people who have achieved great success or happiness late in life.  To extend the definition to pugs, the dear girl I am writing about today is definitely an Indian Summer pug.  Isabelle

 was turned over to rescue by her original owners at a fairly advanced age, but in a turn of great luck she landed in the best home possible with the ladies of Southern Fried Pugs.  There she enjoyed a brilliant retirement with the home cooked meals, the best vet care, swimming sessions and the occasional cheeseburger. 

Sadly Isabelle, who could be the twin of my own Ping, developed cancer and despite the best care possible she passed away.  Isabelle's mom has asked everyone to have a burger on Isabelle.   So here are some vintage burger adds for Isabelle



  1. RIP Isabelle ... you will be greatly missed! We had our cheeseburgers last night so tonight we are going to have a cheeseburger pizza in honor of our furiend!

    Love Elllen & The Fab Five

  4. Isabelle was lucky indeed to be able to spend the twilight years of her life in such a wonderful home.

  5. You may not know it, but your post was beautifully written! We love what you said,, and your right- she had the best home ever- and love.


  6. We agree beautifully written and she was well and truly loved and will be greatly missed by her peeps.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Indian Summer is the perfect way to describe Isabelle. I have never thought of her like that, but it is perfect. For a while, she was healthier in her later years than when she came into rescue. I was so proud that she could stand up on her back legs and dance for her food after losing so much weight. She maintained her sassiness until almost the end. Thank you for posting for Isabelle.
