There is nothing that the puglet loves more than playing, especially with another exuberant puppy, like Lola. What's great about her enthusiasm, is that after an extended play session, Deedee will actually let us sleep in past 6AM in the next morning.

Our pug cousin Bug has alerted us to the existence of a kibble specifically designed to remove nasty tartar from pug teeth. Proof -- Bug's breath was quite improved! I immediately thought of stinky-breath Sasha, who hasn't actually crunched a kibble bit in years (she swallows them), and who acts like I'm KILLING her when I try to brush/scrape her teeth. It's the Hills 't/d' flavor, and the huge size forces the lazy pug to actually chew her food, but is crumbly enough that it's not like she's bleeding at the end of every meal. (Below: Hill's on the left, regular old kibble on the right.)
Deedee likes the stuff so much she picks them out first. And then runs off somewhere to gloat over it, since they're so big she apparently thinks they're treats.

It's been a month since Cleo has seen the dermatologist at UC Davis. Since then, her skin has cleared up, she's been much less itchy, and she has been free of any horrible runny-poop episodes. So, it's off to Davis for a follow-up appointment!
Wait a minute. Isn't Cleo the pug patient in question? Who's this??
Deedee came along because I knew, that after a 3 hour roundtrip car ride plus 1 1/2 to 3 hour appointment, I would come home to peeped-on-herself-puppy. No one wants to come home to that. So she joined us in the examination room.
Cleo was happy to share the spotlight. Cleo does not like vets, sam I am.
There was a rescue kitten at the check-in desk. Somebastard threw it out of a moving car's window. It's going to a good home.
Deedee was wiped out after seeing the vet. Even though she wasn't the pug patient, she got A LOT of attention.
Actually, both pugs were pretty wiped.

We love bath day. And, by 'we', I of course mean Dave and I. We drop off the pugs with the fab people at Spot Pet Care and a few hours later -- voila! they are fresh, fluffy and clean! And, adorned with matching bandannas!
Cleo and Sasha are not huge fans, but they are willing to endure for the treats.
Deedee, on the other hand, appears to love Bath Day. Whenever we pass the groomers, be it Bath Day or not, she tries to pull us into the door.
