Red Poppies and a Hard Working Puggy

Studio Assistant Java Cheesy
Clocks in for Work

I know I often find excuses to bring my puggies up in normal conversation at work. *conversation at watercoolor - Hello, Ms. Medina, how are you doing today? Oh I'm just fine, oh hey, did I tell you what HOWIE did last night?* At least with the blog, I can't see the eyes rolling.

But I wanted to tell you about what a hard working and helpful studio assistant Java Cheesy happens to be. While his younger siblings do seem to get a lot of the spotlight, Java has his own little one-pug show that plays every day like clockwork. It goes something like this:

Java wakes up
Java eats venison stew for breakfast
Java gets CARRIED back to the big bed
Java gets covers tucked around him
Java falls back to sleep
Java gets a forkful of scrambley egg DELIVERED to him in bed
Java finishes off egg and goes back to sleep
Java gets put in the kitchen
Mom goes to work
Mom comes home
Java runs in circles
Java gets fed again
Java goes in yard and finds ball
Java runs in circles
Java chases ball
Java gets cold drink of water
Java goes back to sleep

So there you have it, Java's big day, just about every day. The same routine of a happy, cheesy pug who is getting old much too quickly. He is my special boy with a big and loving heart. I just adore him. I have absolutely no idea how I would get anything accomplished without him.

I hope you have someone just as special in your life. It sure makes studio life interesting.

You painted poppies and photographed them! So pretty Nancy. I'm assuming they are one of your favorite flowers since you've painted them many times.

Big cheesy hugs for Java! If only I could get that much sleep : /

Java is so beautiful. His soul is shinninh through his eyes. He looks like he is an expert in getting lots of attention- just how it should be, and I can tell he gives lots of love. He is a jewel.
