The cheese stands alone

Ahhh.... a comfy, sunny spot.

Sasha, don't be so selfish with your sunny spot.

And Cleo triumphs again.

Pooped pugs

Our friends are very active... we went to the East Peak of Mt. Tam, and hiked all around and up and down it.

It was pretty exhausting for the pugs.

Wait a minute, they didn't go. They're just lazy.

New friends

We had friends stay over the weekend. The pugs like new friends! Cleo became very attached to them, and wasted no time in claiming her new human.

It was a very good lap.

The transition from Alert Pug...

to Half-awake Pug....

to completely Asleep Pug....

is almost immediate.

Antisocial pug

For whatever reason, although Cleo is super-affectionate with us, she is Deathly Afraid of all dogs. and small children. Bunni, on the other hand, loves everyone and everything. We took them to the beach during her last visit, and little Bunni is happily chasing Cleo, thinking she's found a friend. Not so, little pug, not so. Cleo lets her know she's not in the market for new friends, with a little body slam at the end.

Pugz house rules:

1) I get to sleep wherever I want, whenever I want, on whomever I want.

2) I get to eat whatever I want, wherever I want... but preferably at the table, and preferably only the tastiest tidbits.

Note: These rules best apply when at home with the grandparents.

Visit with the grandparents

As expected, the pugletinis had a marvelous time, reunited with the Big Pieces Of Food over the July 4th holiday. Their grandpappy insisted on a delicious beef rib bone for each pug.

Sasha cannot believe her good fortune.

The Original Bunni Walk

Note the hi-lar-ee-yos way Bunni's hind legs cartwheel around and around as she's walking. Where do those paws think they're going? it's like they're dancing away from the rest of her little rump. Note: this is, of course, pre-tragic injury.

Modified Bunni walk

Bunni adapted to her enooooormous splint pretty well. She didn't really seem to miss a beat -- just as active and as happy as ever, but on 3 legs!

alarm! alarm! Over the holiday weekend, little bun-bun-Bunni broke her little paw! She was a trooper. Nary a whimper. Didn't stop her from playing it up for full Affection Potential, tho.

She is a verrrry smart little pug. How can you resist this pitiful little face?

Occasionally she would forget, and revert back to her natural happy state. (look ma! i broke my foot! yey!)

On the road again

We took the pugs for a whirlwind tour of the East Coast for the July 4 holiday week. We thought that since the pug princesses were such seasoned travelers by now, we would dispense with the sedatives. It worked out well.

The sweetlets were really well behaved. Just one little whimper from Cleo when we touched down in DC, just to let us know that she would prefer being in a lap next time.

Good pug, Bad pug

The puglets sleep with us every night. They hog the whole bed, pushing and shoving until the poor humans in the bed are huddled on the edge by morning. And yet the princesses make their petulance very clear, that we don't offer them prime position -- our pillows. As soon as Dave leaves the bed to visit the bathroom in the morning, Cleo seizes her opportunity.

Sasha is very good and waits patiently for his return.

Sun goddess pugs

We had a beautiful weekend the other week. The pugs enjoyed every sun-filled moment.

Laundry day. I set one of Dave's shirts on the floor to dry flat. Foolish me! When I returned to the room, the shirt looked suspiciously like it had been tampered with. It was covered with telltale pawprints!

The pugs weren't talking.

Another great pug quality

How does Sasha manage to look both reposed and alert, at the same time? Wonders of The Pug never cease to amaze....

Cleo, on the other hand...

... treats her bone like it's the last crumb on earth and she will die without it. Scroll thru the below pics for the full, jaws-of-death, effect.
