Ugh, more bad news. This poor pug. These posts are getting harder and harder to write, but I’ll give you guys a quick update because I know a lot of you are thinking about our little guy.

Ok, so things haven’t gone well since Murphy’s surgery, and we’ve needed to visit the vet every day since. The first…

Good morning! Happy Memorial Day! So, the Hauperts have had quite the weekend with all sorts of highs and some serious lows. Let’s talk about the highs first since those are a lot more fun.
