Snow-induced snugglage

The pugs accompanied us to Tahoe again this past weekend. There was powder in them thar hills!

Not that the puglets got to see any of it. They were too busy snoring, sleeping... snuggling.


Must be altitude sickness.

Weekend trip with the pugs

We took the pugs to Tahoe for the first ski weekend of the year!

I think there's nothing they love more than long car trips. Lots of opportunities for extended snugglage. Very pestily so. Cleo started in the back of the car...

... and ended up in the front.

Deedee started in the front of the car...

...and got sent to the passenger well for frisky behavior (standing on her hind legs, placing her paws on the driver's shoulders, and licking the driver's face).

Sasha didn't participate in Musical Laps. She had a good spot in the back.

Holiday activities

There wasn't just a lot of puppy-munching over the holidays. There was also a ridiculous amount of napping. On the grandpa and gramma, of course.

More meeting of the pug minds

There was a ridiculous amount of wrestling and mouth play and licking and rrr-rrrr-rrrrr-ing when the 2 pugs were together.

Classic Cleo

Oh, Cleopatra, didn't Santa bring you enough in your stocking this year?

True cousins

Deedee and her cousin Bunni took to each other immediately. There was a lot of chasing, wrestling, mouthplay, and even exuberant licking. Instant love. I think they could tell that they were related. After all, there were the striking similarities... specifically... peeping position. Note the identical rear leg lift.

And then the post-peep requisite begging ('mama? GIMME TREAT! I PEEPED!)

Do you not just want to shnuzzle that little muzzle??

How about this one?

A new toy!

For the puppy, everything is a toy. Even a piece of trash.

Over the holidays, the puglets were able to catch up on their beauty sleep.

Wherever they could.

Quality time with the pug

After more than a week of nonstop snuggling, the pugs are exhausted. Even the normally Energizer Puppy Deedee spent most of her first day home, unconscious.

Except Miss Needy Cleepee. She sulked around, and had the nerve to refuse to cuddle with me, and instead pine after her grampa. So I took her with me in the car to do my errands, for some one-on-one quality time.

She perked up after that. Or maybe it was the copious treats I was giving her.

On the road again...

We traveled for the holidays with all 3 pugs, for the very first, and likely the very last, time. I took several pics to document our folly. (I will mention only in passing the intense difficulty of negotiating the numerous doofi they employ at the airlines, for 2 people attempting to fly with - gasp - 3 pugs.) First, the pugs in their carriers at SFO.

Actually, just Cleo and Deedee. Sasha is apparently too grand to stay in her carrier and prefers a seat to herself.

Then, the pugs at BOS. This time, Sasha deigned to repose within her carrier.

Finally, the pugs at IAD, before the flight back home. Deedee was acting a little antsy (by which I mean whiney and screamy) in her carrier as we traversed security, so we decided to give her a wee bit of sedative. Thought this was an excellent plan as she settled down. and attempted to squeeze herself into Sasha's spacious carrier, with poor Sasha, and pass out.

We were congratulating ourselves on our well-behaved pugs. Until we pulled out the urine-soaked, nasty stinky, puppy from her carrier upon our arrival into SFO. Quel horror! Nothing says welcome home like giving 3 pugs a bath even before unpacking.
