Lazy morning

It's sort of a gross Christmas Eve -- all grey, cloudy and drizzling. A perfect morning to stay a bit longer in bed. Cleo agrees. as she usurps my warm spot in bed and shoves her butt onto my pillow.

The puppy refuses to leave her warm, snug crate. Always full of the surprise peeps, she does not get to share the bed.

The elder pug of many years, with the miracle bladder, stretches languidly out onto the bed.

stop taking flash pics, mama. it's annoying.

Twin pugs??

They look remarkably similar, don't they?

Passed out pugs

We went to play in Tahoe this past weekend, in the season's first major snowfall!

The pugs stayed home in warmth and comfort. And, after a weekend of lots of walks and attention, they're pooped.

Pug spots on the sofa

Each pug has her fave spot on the sofa. Sasha likes to burrow her head, preferably behind a cushion.

wha, mama?

Cleo is keeping a close eye on the goings on in the kitchen.

Deedee's latest spot is the top of the sofa.

She's sort of dribbling down the cushion.

New sweater

The massive puppy has already outgrown her frilly sweater. At this rate, she'll be sharing clothes with me by the time she's one year old. So I knit her another sweater, a little large so that this time she can wear it for more than a couple of weeks.

She looks unhappy? Certainly not because of the hood that is quashing her ears to her head. I maintain that it's because I just dragged her out of her crate from a serious nap.

Yoga pug

Sasha is a very curious pug. She likes to investigate all things, particularly when they're on the ground. Like yoga mats.

Sasha is also a very limber pug -- note her perfect form with Upward Facing Dog.

not for long! says Cleo, as she takes this opportunity to interrupt Sasha's concentration.

wha, mama? were u planning on doing some yoga? would u like to wrestle too??

New garage floor needs to be tested

While I was out, playing in Vegas, husband spent the majority of his weekend installing tile floor in his favorite room -- the garage. Deedee helped.

As a matter of fact, she loved the new floor so much, she promptly peeped on it.

Post-Thanksgiving food coma

oh. I meant the husband, not the pugs.

I knit Deedee a new hat in preparation for the colder weather.

Needless to say, a pug's almost perfectly round head does not lend itself well to keeping a hat on without completely covering up the eyeballs. The little scarf-like ties I added barely keep it on her active little noggin.

i am mistress of the universe!

Deedee says -- i am powerful pug! all who see me shake in fear!

Sasha says -- what. keep it down, twerpie.

Somepug is getting crushed.

I won't say which pug, but I will say that it is currently the Monster Puppy's fave.
