Put your right paw in

Put your right paw out
Put your right paw in
.... and sleep on it.

Pug snugglage

Although it was no small bit of chaos, it WAS nice to have 5 pugs around. Nothing like a houseful of pug to conduct some serious, controlled-environment, species-based observation... to realize they really do little more than... sleep.

and sleep some more.

oh, did you catch that little bit of cousin luv snugglage between Bunni and Cleo's rump? Super-size!

Where's Rikki? She's busy, v busy.

ok, not really. She's also sleepy.

Pugs. I'd like to know why my sockie is just hanging out by its lonesome, in the middle of the dining room. Far, far away from the laundry basket in which I placed it.

Some guilty pug isn't talking. And her name starts with a 'B' and ends in a 'unni'.

Shopping with the pugs

Sometimes we try to multitask, by fitting in a shopping trip while walking the pugs. This, of course, works much better when a) there are 2 people, and b) the shop is dog-friendly. In this case, the toyshop (of all places) was NOT pug-friendly (boo!), so husband went inside while I waited outside with the 5 pugs.

Rikki, Cleo and Deedee were not pleased about being left behind. They maintained vigilant watch until he came back out. Where's Sasha? She's the pug butt you see, facing the other way, sniffing something infinitely more interesting that waiting for her devoted dada.

Rikki got tired, and decided to rest her weary head on Sasha's dual-purpose behind.

Where's Bunni? I think she's waiting for a piece of sausage to materialize in front of her mouth.

Where were the other 4 pugs?

Just in case you were wondering if Sasha gets taken on her 'walks' all by herself. Ho, no. The other 4 puglets are plenty busy taking up my spare attention.

'Walks' with the pug

Sasha's arthritis has been flaring up again lately. I won't go more than a block, and the poor puglet is already limping, tail droopy. So our 'walks' together have been more 'strolls'.

i am patetique

... and i need to be luvved.

Rikki never fails to make any moment, a Love Moment.

Happy Birthday, Grampa!

Sasha is alarmed at the advancing age of the Grampa.

Deedee is happily unconcerned with the passage of time.

Only Cleo, who luvs her grampa the most, attempts to verbalize her condolences. She says -- grampa. u need to exercise regularly.

... is being surrounded by pug.

Too much love is not enough for miss Rikki

Something is wrong with this pug. You just have to look at her sideways with one partially-open eye, and she flops over onto her back for a belly rub.

We inevitably oblige.

The puglets would like some cake

Note how far back and contorted the humans have to be to avoid the dripping, pug tongues.

Another good place to nap

In all the peri-wedding craziness, I have not had any time to post, or download pics. It's just been whirlwind of activity! Luckily for the pugs, the grandpugparents were around for a significant portion of the time.

One wonders how Cleo could have managed without her grampa.
