Big social weekend




Miley had a very social weekend. On Sat I took her and Brutus to the ARF Dog Park. We had never been before. We stayed for about an hour. There were about 5 dogs when we arrived. Miley ran around with some of them. She is very shy at first but doing much better. I don't have any pics because I was overwhelmed with being outnumbered and having to cross the street with them because there were many volunteers.

Today I took Miley with me to 3 hardware stores. At each one she was more comefortable. At the first place she was very scared and shaking a bit. By the last place her tail was normal (not between her legs) and she would let a few people almost pet her. I was so proud of her. I didn't take Brutus because it was so hot. She did great in the car too!

Also the neighborhood kids played with Miley and Brutus some this weekend. She has so much energy but now that it's warm outside it will be easier to drain her of some of it.

I painted the door from the garage to house red. I like it.



George Henry made some friends with the neighborhood cats.

Mom can't find the pic but here is a link to a pic from a year ago.

Here is the same flowering almond. I have aged nicely if I do say so myself.

Food edition





Mom here. What do you feed your pugs?

I have been feeding Nutro but then heard about this article.

Now I am wondering if I should start feeding him something different?

Brutus didn't like Science diet nor did he like Purina Pro plan for seniors. I bought a small bag of the Nutro for seniors and he liked it.

Any suggestions? Planning a trip to PetSmart to get some food?

I so want to go adopt Akita. Remember that cute kitten. He's still at ARF I don't need another cat.

Miley is wearing me down. She is so active. She just drains the attention from me vs. Brutus and the other cats.

Happy Earth day everyone!

Sorry for the double post for those of you on facebook but this picture just makes me laugh. I don't want to eat gifted children but the title just kills me.

Pug Art


Mom finally took pictures of the canvas Mom bought from Emmit and Melissa. We love it! Thanks so much! Sorry we haven't commented much all week. We've been reading about you all though. Thanks for all of the kind comments about Miley. She is up on the KPR website now and we are hoping she finds a forever home soon.

Neighborhood dogs, Lucy edition

Hello everyone! We hope you had a Happy Easter. The grandparents were here for a visit. They enjoyed Miley and Me especially. So we would like to introduce you to one of our neighborhood dogs. Her name is Lucy. She is a beautiful golden retreiver. She's about 1 1/2 years old maybe 2. She is very sweet, innocent and submissive. Mom got a picture of me telling her a secret.

Here is a video of Lucy Miley playing.

Shadow RIP



The German Shepherd, Shadow, who was the dog belonging to the family accross the street was hit by a car and passed. This happend Sat night but Mom found out about it today. Shadow must have gotten off her leash and wandered over to the highway. Mom doesn't know anymore details. She put a card in their mailbox.

It's "funny" for lack of a better word, how these things make you realize. Shadow had been accross the street ever since Mom moved into the house four years ago. Since Mom got me she really got to see Shadow more and pet her and etc. Mom keeps food outside for the outside kitties IJ and Onyx and Shadow would always come over and eat the food. Even though she was girl, Shadow had a very loud and deep bark. Mom was a little scared of her at first but since interacting with her more Mom actually liked the bark. Shadow would bark at anything strange. So when we would go out on walks sometimes she would bark at us, especially at night until she realized who we were. Mom thinks her last memory of Shadow was her laying on the porch.

Mom had been excited to have Miley meet Shadow. When the neighbors are outside in the yard or the kids were out, Shadow would be off leash. She was a good girl and would stay in the yard or in the local area. Mom was hoping Miley would get to interact with her a bit.

The other thing that's just odd is that Sat at Pug Posses house there was a german shepherd.

The above picture isn't of Shadow but it's close. She had a red collar and looked similar except her tail was black. Mom hadn't taken any pictures of her. Mom isn't much of a camera person. She's taken more pics in the past year than in her entire life.

We will be taking pics of the neighborhood dogs that I and Miley see when we go for our walks.

Kellys Birthday and the Indy Pug meetup

Hello everyone. Brutus here. We went to the Indy Pug meetup on Sat then after to a birthday party at Pug Posse for Harles, Sophie and Dixes Mom. There were 19 pugs! Here is a link to a video.
We want to thank Vikki and David for having us over. We also want to thank everyone who posted pictures for us. Mom left her camera in the car.

Here is a pic of Kelly and Miley (yes yes, our cute foster pug)



Here is Dixie, aka "Da Bugg" in a very provocative pose.



Here are all of the pug Moms. Notice Mom didn't hold me? Well that's ok because I don't like to be held but she could have at least called me over.



Lastly, here is a pic of Mom teasing us with an Apple slice. Notice me on the far right sitting a being a good boy.



I was so tired the next day but Miley.....still had energy.

Proof

Ok so you have all seen the videos! Yes Yes Miley is cute. She is wearing me out! In the past few days I've played more than since Mom has had me. I am even sharing my toys with her!

I'ze been a good boy! Only a few days until the Indy Pug Meetup!

Happy Birthday Sophie, Roxy, and Dixies Mom! We are sending her lots of licks and snorts!

We are sad to hear that Frances will have to get surgery but happy that it's not anything worse than subluxing patellas. She has surgery next Tuesday. We'll be thinking of her.

I've gotten some awards.

First up is the Fabulous Blogger award (the picture sure isn't very Manly) but thanks Rosie!



The award rules say:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post rules on your blog.
3. Write five random things about yourself.
4. Tag random people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they've been tagged.

OK - Five random things about me.

1. I LOVE car rides. Somehow I think I've told you that before.
2. I am not cuddly. I do not sit on furniture with Mom, nor do I ever lick anyone.
3. I love to go for walks and for that matter I love to go anywhere.
4. I don't eat any vegtables or peanut butter. Mom has tried to feed them to me and I have no interest.
5. I don't get freaked out by anything. The only thing I don't seem to like at all is getting a bath or getting my ears cleaned. I am such a good boy though that I tolderate them.

We are passing this on to Puglsey and Apollo!

Next award is from Pearl whos Mom also had a birthday a few days ago! Thanks Pearl! Lots of licks and snorts to you too!



The second award is the coffee cup award and this is awarded to blogs that one couldn't miss each morning.

Now like Pearls Mom and I am sure most of you, we read a lot of blogs every day but we are passing this one off to the whole gang over at the Pug Posse. They always have something going on!
