So long, Sandy!

Well, the PugSlope Headquarters and all of its residents survived Hurricane Sandy unscathed.  We were very fortunate – our power stayed on and there was no damage to our apartment due to wind or rain.  Sid thinks it’s because he’s oh-so intimidating, but the truth is we were just lucky.

Don’t mess with me, Sandy.

 Now we’ll be doing what we can to help things get back to normal in NYC, and we hope that some of you can help out too.  If you’re local, shelters across the city are taking donations of clothing.   And from anywhere in the country, you can automatically donate $10 to the Red Cross by texting REDCROSS to the number 90999, or you can donate larger amounts at

And, on a lighter note, Sid emerged from the hurricane with his gentleman’s dignity in tact.  The poor guy went almost 18 hours without doing any business in the apartment, even after I encouraged him to do so by setting up a very appealing indoor pee park:

Luckily, when we woke up at 8am, the winds had died down enough to get him outside.  Poor guy barely made it to the sidewalk!!

    Hi Sid,

    Now we can breathe a sigh of relief. Thank goodness you & your humans are a-ok!

    Mom laughed out loud when she saw the pee park picture.

    Poor Sid. We would have preferred to go outside, especially Isabelle, but we use those pads when we have to. So glad the weather cleared enough and the sidewalks are clean enough for you to go outside!

    Thanks for the update. I was thinking about you guys as I listened to the howling winds in Fort Wayne. Glad to hear you’re all right. BTW, very creative indoor park!

    I think Scarlet would have liked a pee park too, but she held on until this morning! And we know that you are intimidating to keep Sandy away Sid, even if your Mom doesn’t think so.

    Scarlet & Meredith

    Sid, with that look on your face there is no doubt why Pug Slope HQ was spared! But like Suki’s mom, I am laughing a ton at your indoor pee spot. Priceless! At any rate, we are so relieved to hear you are ok. I know Gammy and Gampy were worried too.
