Turns 2!


It seems like just yesterday Mamma Biscuit burst onto the blogosphere with her little-engine-that-could blog and since then, she has grown a legion of die-hard fans from all around the world that check in weekly to see what our gremlin is up to! Time does fly by when you’re having fun because this weekend we turn 2 years old—2 FREAKING YEARS OLD, can you believe it? It bears repeating because honestly, when we started this blog, I thought I would just post a couple of photos of Mamma and never log back on thinking it would conflict with my extensive reality-TV-watching-schedule! I guess Mamma Biscuit has made our lives so fulfilling that sharing it with you all has just been a natural extension of our experience having her as a pet! It also helps that her rescue story is of the rags-to-riches variety—I mean, who doesn’t love a good little orphan Annie past? Oh and that puppy mill down in Georgia that Mamma endured for the first 7 years of her life can simply FUCK OFF with the rest of them out there because this blog serves as a testament to just how fulfilling and rewarding it is to rescue a dog or cat (especially the elderly animals who experience the most rejection)
and to simply say NO to puppy mills and breeder ideals!

Now, who would have known that sharing Mamma’s life and adventures living out her golden years with her two daddies in NYC would spark such interest and enthusiasm from all four corners of the earth! From London to Paris, Milan to Tokyo, Berlin to Toronto, Australia and all across the United States—Mamma sure knows how to bring all the dogs to the yard, DAMN RIGHT! It’s insane! Mamma’s adorable puggy snout has graced computer screens owned by people from all walks of life! In the past 2 years, y’all have logged on here to Mamma’s little corner on the web for your daily dose of cuteness—and it’s totally been our pleasure! Had a slow day at work and need a distraction? forego that 5-hour energy shot and log onto—you won’t be disappointed! From a hard, baby-making life at that puppy mill in Georgia to the good people at Curly Tail Pug Rescue to our family—where her New York City adventure began and continues to thrive, we at the Pug Palace thank you for your enthusiasm, compliments, encouragement and general excitement regarding Mamma Biscuit. We feel your immense love pulsating through our monitor here at home!

For our one year anniversary last year, we covered the amusing search terms that people used to get to their respective/desired places on the Web but ended up here—on Mamma’s blog! Remember that post? Thank goodness for Word Press because the list of hilarious words and phrases that come in daily astound me! The fact that phrases like Gay Muscled Bikers, John Galliano, I’m So Gay I Poop Rainbows, Suck Me Off Mama, Anna Wintour Looks Like a Frog and Madonna Pugs has directed people to this very blog makes this whole project worth while in my opinion! What a cross section of people! Now let me tell you, words are powerful but in this image-obsessed culture we live in, a picture is truly worth a thousand words! We should know because we get a ton of new readers through shared photos on Tumblr accounts and Pinterest. In fact, below are two screen shots of Mamma Biscuit dominating the Pinterest boards of many out there that bring in new viewers every day!


Now tell me if you wouldn’t want a quilt that looked exactly like this to keep you warm all year long?


Sharing (responsibly) is caring so thank you all for sharing Mamma Biscuit’s photos with your friends and followers and generally making her star shine brighter here in this big digital world!

Now some may warn us of the “terrible twos” we face starting on Sunday, February 24th but I say bring it on! Mamma’s got a lot of feistiness to work out this year and you all have front row seats to her show! Enjoy and happy two year anniversary to your favorite, toothless pug online!


February 24th is the day we went live in 2011 with Mamma’s very first post! Get into HER Groove if you haven’t already!

  1. Happy Birthday Mamma!
    You and Leo can navigate the terrible two’s together as he turns two on Sunday. I suspect there will be lots of time outs and threats for Leo and lots of naps and treats for Lady Biscuit!

    • The Biscuits says:

      LOL Christina! You are absolutely right! Mamma Biscuit acts up and suddenly, we feel compelled to give her treats! We’ve created a monster, have you with Leo? LOL Happy Birthday to little Leo as well!

  2. Anna @ D16 says:

    I’m so glad I forced you to start this blog, hahahaha! Happy blogging birthday. ;)

  3. Jana says:

    I’m thankful, glad, relieved, etc. that she is with the family SHE so rightfully deserves. NO’mo, hard-knock life. You are both WONDERFUL parents.

    • The Biscuits says:

      You can say that again! I’m hoping there will be a Nation-wide puppy mill ban the way there is in Los Angeles! Forcing all pets stores to only sell rescues would be a start! xoxo

  5. Happy happy happy birthday! Here’s to many years more of Mamma!! xx

    Dearest Biscuits

    Congratulations on your 2nd anniversary! Milo and I click on your bookmark daily in eager anticipation of another installment in the fabulous life of Mamma B and her Daddies. Your writing is very clever and your photography is way cool. Mamma’s story is very dear to us. Thanks for the entertainment! Keep up the fine work.

    Steve & Milo

    BTW, we would sooooo buy the Mamma B mug, especially if it had her pic in the Chanel clip-ons!

    • The Biscuits says:

      AWWW Thanks so much Steve & Milo! Mamma Biscuit is gonna work out some merchandise specfically for her Miami fan-base real soon, I promise! I mean, if every damn celebrity in Hollywood can have a clothing line and a fragrance, well then so can Mamma Biscuit! LOL We are so happy that you guys find Mamma’s adeventures here in NYC so entertaining, there’s more to come so stay tuned!

      Pug hug and kisses from teh Biscuits!

    Happy Online Birthday Biscuit Family!!! You definitely are better than 5 hour energy, and I don’t think I could handle 5 hour energy and Mamma at the same time!! I think it’s fantastic that you guys are bringing so much awareness to the plight of puppy mill dogs. Mamma is a fabulous Golden Girl of the canine variety – which one would she be, though?? I got my dog as a puppy, but I decided a long time ago, I would never get another puppy – I will only adopt older dogs from now on and encourage others to do the same. I am always so glad to see what you guys are up to – here’s to many more years and Biscuit adventures…

    • The Biscuits says:

      Courtney, your comment means so much to us! If we can bring a much-needed awareness of the terrible puppy mill industry and encourage our readers to adopt then it’s all worth it for us to continue with this blog! Also, many people frown upon old age when it comes to adoption but we’re hear to exemplify that older dogs can be that much more rewarding! They have seen the ugly face of rejection the most and when they find a forever home, they really show you their love! I also believe that puppies tend to be a bit over-rated! YES, they seem more adorable than other dogs of older ages but puppies are a lot of work and need training and patience on the part of their owners where older dogs have worked out most of their curiousities, have seen and experienced life and tend to be calmer and more adjusted! We’ve had Mamma Biscuit now for almost 5 years so time-limitations is not an issue as most people fear with adopting an older pet! We plan on doing the same as you, only adopting older dogs in the future! Thank you so much for sharing with us your love of this blog–your way better replacement of a 5-hour energy shot! LOL
      Sending you pug hugs and kisses!

    I rescued my pug Lucy from the Curly Tail Pug Rescue in February 2009. I have been a fan of Mammas since her blog began. Rescue dogs give so much love, they seem to know what you’ve done for them. I often say I rescued Lucy but she really rescued me ! Puppy mills are horrible places that should never be allowed to operate , they are the ultimate form of animal cruelty. I am so glad that Mamma has the life that she always deserved . She is lucky to have you both and you are lucky to have her too. Isn’t it the ultimate FUCK YOU to the puppy mills that Mamma is now a couture wearing internet sensation that is loved by her fans everywhere ? Keep it up Mamma, we do love you! We love the biscuits!

    • The Biscuits says:

      Dear Cheryl and Lucy,

      Thank you so much for your support! Lucy and Mamma Biscuit are rescue sisters and you obviously know first hand how rewarding it is to adopt a pet and how horrible the puppy mill industry is! I would like to further the issue by saying that breeders do not make the current adoption/rescue system any better! Although most breeders love their animals and provide an amazing living environment for them, they perpetuate breeder ideals that make rescue dogs seem that much more undesirable to a potential pet owner–not to mention the fact that they continue to add so many more dogs and cats into a world where statistically, over 30,000 get put down a day!! A DAY!!!! That’s crazy to me that any system would want to add more animals into the world where so many get put down! Breeders create “ideals” that in turn create competition for rescue pets and people are more than willing to shell out tons of money just so they can say that they have a perfectly bred “X, Y & Z” dog that bears no real scientific superiorority over a rescue dog of that same breed in my opinion! These domestic animals (like all animals) feel pain and show love the same EXACT way and no fine breeder lineage or designer breed can have an adavantage over another “pedestrian” dog when it comes to LOVE! That’s the only purpose to have them in our home, so there can be an exchange of love between animal and human. The rest is all bullshit in my opinion! Except of course, if the animal has a fabulous wardrobe, then I pay attention to that LOL That’s an ideal for me!!! If Mamma Biscuit did not get rescued by Curly Tail, the puppy mill she belonged to down in Georgia would have shot her out back along with many other pugs after they were deemed unproductive to make babies! Instead, she has been given a second chance at a real doggy life, the couture is just the much-needed cherry on top! Thank you so much for checking in on Mamma’s little corner on the web and continue to love her! Curly Tail Pug Rescue is an amazing organization (Rest in Peace Sophia) and Lucy is another success story in the fabric of pet rescue and adoption!
      Sending you pug hugs and kisses from Mamma and family!

      • cheryl williamson says:

        So well put! We could not agree with you more! We owe it to our furry family members and to all the other animals out there waiting for their forever homes to spread that word . xoxo

  9. Congratulations! We’ve loved every minute of it. Mamma is super lucky that you found each other. xxxxx

  10. Patty says:

    Congrats and happy 2nd blog anniversary! I am so happy to have found Mamma’s blog at the time I needed it most. Shortly after my Angel died last year, I found it, and now I tune in at least twice a week to see if Mamma has had some new adventures. She is such a pretty girl, those beautiful brown eyes just look into your soul. Here’s to many more years! xoxo Patty

    • The Biscuits says:

      Patty, I’m so happy Mamma Biscuit has given you comfort and helped you through your grief after your Angel passed away last year! That’s what Mamma and this blog is for—to put a smile on your face and to hopefully make you giggle! Mamma and family are sending you a boat-load of hugs and kisses! Thanks for the lovely comment and for your continued support!

  11. bfish says:

    Not much to say that others haven’t said better, but belated congratulations from the Petersburg Pug Posse and may you have many more years of sharing The Biscuits’ adventures! You have got it all here — great humor, wonderful pictures, and some powerful messages about pet ownership — not to mention a most beautiful Pug princess. Thanks for all that you share with your fans, and don’t lose any of your quirkiness and unique world view.

    • The Biscuits says:

      Awwww your message was so sweet and thoughtful! Mamma Biscuit and family run this blog specifically for fans like you and we feel like we’ve just gotten started! Thank you for staying on this crazy, wild ride! Mamma is sending you loads of pug hugs and kisses! xoxo

  12. Suzy says:

    I found pretty Mama thru & now she’s all over my Pinterest board because she’s just too pretty not to share!

    Thank you for spreading the word about pug rescue too! We foster for Kentuckiana Pug Rescue & it’s so rewarding. It takes a village but one day there will be a world without homeless/abused/abandoned pugs :)

    • The Biscuits says:

      Suzy, you are an amazing person for fostering for Pug rescue! In fact, we think that all foster moms and dads out there who work with animal rescue groups are the ultimate example of selflessness! To work to rehabilitate an animal only to give it for a forever home takes a special kind of selflessness that is rare and unique! I’m proud that we have you as one of our readers and Mamma will gladly make a splash on your Pinterest wall! We need to be the change we want to see regarding animal cruelty and what you do is a big part of that quilt of change! Keep on keepin’ on! xoxo
