Oh Wise One

2 Mar

My humans say that you can see a lot about someone by looking at their eyes. They say my eyes are wise and that I look like I have a story to tell. I say they shot a picture of me right after I came in from a walk in the stormy weather…

So, as I ponder, about my wiseness, I think I will take a moment to reflect on what has made me wise.

1. I think being a pudgy pug no longer gave me a lot to appreciate about life. When I was a chubby puggy I missed out on a lot of things and life passed me by… In the past couple of years I have found a zest for life that didn’t revolve around food and involved playing, loving my humans, and meeting new friends.

2. I have had more than one home. This has given me a lot of insight on love and family and how important a forever home is. I know that the family I am with is forever but in my past, I didn’t have a great home life… I also learned how much love you can get in a foster home and how much love it takes to take in homeless Pugs when they are in need. There are a lot of good people out there looking to love Pugs.

3. Near death experience. This is a scary thing. I almost crossed the Rainbow Bridge at 4 years young. It was before I even went in to Rescue… I was in the hospital and had tubes and everything coming out of me all over trying to heal me. A few short months later, I was in rescue, losing weight, and getting healthy again.

4. Being a good listener. As I have met so many new humans and FURiends in the past few years I have been told that I am very good at listening to people and making them feel better. I don’t have a lot to say sometimes but I love making people feel better.

Well, that is about it on being wise… Until next time friends…

Yours truly, a Valentine.

14 Feb

Here I am. I am a Valentine. My human Kristen decided to give my other human, Eric, a special Valentine’s day card. Turns out that card was ME! I did get some treats out of it but I was subjected to wearing a heart around my head. I know, I know, I look cute… Still if I don’t get a Valentine out of this I will be bummed… My human said I looked irresistible but I don’t know I think I just feel silly… Luckily, when I went to daycare today, I didn’t have to wear this…

Hi friends.

9 Dec

I have been napping much too much to writes in my blog so I thought I would take a break from napping and say hi. I’m sorry friends that I haven’t posted in a while. With it being winter, I takes much more naps. My persons spend way too many hours at a place called work. It must be a pretty fun place if they go there so often…  So, while they do that, I sleep away and watch the house. My busy day is Monday. I can never blog on Monday. That is garbage day. Take it upon myself to speak to the garbage & recycling trucks every time they drive by. They need to know that it is important to not disturb my naps. That said I do enjoy Monday’s though… With it being the Howliday’s, there have been many more trucks delivering gifts to people. No trucks have come to our house yet… I am getting a bit concerned… I will be waiting when they arrive. I am hoping for a new dog bed this year and treats of various sorts, preferably knee bones… I recently got an early present. Check out my new bling…  Well, I am starting to yawn so I better get back to my naps. I will post soon. I’ve missed you friends.

WANTED: Pug Pal

6 Oct

I have been absent from my blog for a couple weeks. I have been a bit lonely and I also celebrated Hug a Pug day so I was a little hugged over from that. I asked the humans if we could get another pug… They said not yet but sometime in the future… Hmph. Since that didn’t work, I decided I am seeking a pug pal.  So, my human came up with the idea that I should write to a fellow pug and strike up a friendship. I like this idea. I like to write and I have lots to say. So, I tried to go to the post office to see if I could find a Pug Pal there. No luck. I waited and waited by the big blue box but people just kept dropping off letters but no pugs. Hmmm. How do I find a Pug Pal? I don’t think waiting by the mailbox is going to work but it seemed like such a good idea. I would love to find a pug that lives somewheres far away and needs a friend. We could even exchange gifts during the Howlidays. If you have any ideas… let me know… I am getting discouraged waiting day in and day out at the post office.

My birthday recap. No thanks to the Ducks.

7 Sep

Saturday was my birthday! I turned 6 years old. This was a big event for me. I woke up thinking I was getting a party, a cake, and a few presents. NO. I was wrong. Turns out on my special day some Ducks from Kristen’s school were playing their first football game. Ducks playing football!? Can you imagine?! I see Ducks at the park and all they ever do is swim in water and eat bread… How they put on clothing and throw a ball is beyond me… This is the biggest event of the year, much to my dismay, for my humans. They get on green and yellow clothing and have to drive really far to watch these Ducks. So, I was by my lonesome until the evening when they returned. They returned empty handed. No balloons. No cake. I’m still pouting about it.

On Sunday, I did receive a birthday gift and a special treat and a visit to one of my favorite stores, Salty’s Dog and Cat Shop. My human bought me a Bully stick. I had never had one before and it was pure deliciousness. So, when person Eric heard about my birthday treat he asked what part of the cow it was from exactly. Kristen looked it up and well… it’s a bull cow wiener. Now Eric thought this was the funniest thing in the whole world. He laughed and laughed.  I didn’t care. Bully sticks are awesome… I just wish they were from a different part of the cow…. It’s a little embarrassing.  I am too grouchy to post a photo but Kristen says she wants to put one up of me in my Duck shirt. I don’t want to wear the Duck shirt because it is a reminder how I spent my birthday alone while they watched some crazy birds throw a ball.

Free Range Pugs

1 Sep

Yesterday as I went for a my evening walk I saw a neighbor of mine, Jose. Jose is a pug too and he is the most unique pug I have ever met because his mom says he is a free range pug! Now, when Jose goes for walks he is not on a leash! Isn’t that the most absurd thing ever?!? Well, he stays close to his human all the time and is calm enough not to try and chase trucks like I would.  They walk all over the neighborhood and he gets to sniff plants on peoples lawns that my leash would never let me reach. I am quite jealous so I got my person to think about having me free range. Kristen said it would give her nightmares… I wouldn’t want that so I guess I will remain leashed.One pug can only wish.

In this photo, I was attempting being free range this weekend at the dog park. I am thinking of using it to start a profile for a dating site so I can find a girlfriend. What do you think? Do you have any tips on what I should say to attract all the ladies? I hope someone asks me on a date. I have never been on a date. I think my perfect pug date would be to a teriyaki place followed by a run in the big yard.
