Etiquette 101: Fine Dinning (It Pays To Have Manners)

Hi, this is AJ HoosierHugPug ;o]

s the Pug of the Realm, I know how to present myself in public. It is always best to have impeccable table
manners. A lot can be learned about your character by how you conduct yourself in public and around food. And with more restaurants adding Out-Door Dinning, the chance of being invited to one of these finer establishments have increased greatly. It is our hope that all Pugs and pups can learn a valued lesson and be included in the family's night out.

"Thank you, this table is perfect."

When taking you seat at table try to make eye contact with the person
who is responsible for seating you.
It is also wise to look around so you will know exactly where your table is located in case you have need to leave and then return. You do not want to seat yourself at the wrong table. After placing your order, you may continue to examine you surroundings and your table.

When being served, thank the person who brought the food you ordered and remember

Give Thanks for you Blessings!

Choose a portion of food, trying not to look as if you are playing at the table, enjoy you meal.This means no scarfing of your food. Remember you're not at home, no food fights.

It is proper to end you meal with a relaxing tummy rub and even to catch a few "ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ".

Now we hope you will not only be invited to enjoy an
evening of fine food and company, but that you will be known as a Pug Extrodinaire!

Thank you and we hope you will watch for future instruction and information on Pug & Pup manners!

It's Summer

Summer Dunes

At last the time most of us dream of nearly nine months of the year!!!

It's Summer!!!!

The Big Surprise! Thank You Tom!

It has been several days since I found time to make an entry... I attempted to write some yesterday but as I logged in there was a knock on our front door.
There greeted me a young man wanting to know if we would be interested in getting our parking area black topped...
Okay... where is the hidden camera... what's the joke...
Would we be interested...
  1. How much?
  2. When?
  3. How much?
  4. Are you joking?
He was not joking... and the "How much" was something we could afford. Maybe not such a big thing, but it was to us as we have wanted to do this for a very long time...



No more weeds, mud and rocks... and it only took two hours and no hidden cameras...
Sometimes it pays to answer the knock at the door....

Great Dad's Day

Hail to the Chief and Reigning King!

King Tom & Princess Lynn

As Dad's Day's go this was a very good one.

A quite morning and then out to dine with daughter at Bridges... Tom's new favorite place to relax and have good food and maybe a cold one. It was fun watching the boats and then taking a drive to the lake front. You could see the storm clouds starting to form so it was home for us. Just in time to see the Cubs beat the Toronto Blue Jays... this made Tom's day complete.

You can see a slide show of the days pictures to the right of this posting.

We hope all Dad's had a great day and spent good time with all their loved ones!
