Pug-less vacation

Is there a sadder combo of words in the English language? We do try to keep a full complement of pugs to escort us on vacations, but sadly, pugs were not allowed on our recent cruise to Alaska.

That's not to say that the trip was completely sans mammals of the non-human variety. We saw plenty of these:

look! a killer whale! seriously

and these:

the elusive humpback whale tail

Actually, there was a pug-sighting on the trip. We passed by this little guy in the park, and our entire family descended upon this unfortunate, er, LUCKY pug, cooing and oohing and snuggling and all in all making general fools of ourselves.
do you blame us. look at that face.

getting a back scratch from a stranger. is there a greater happiness for a pug?


  1. LOL- LOVE IT! Whenever we go on a dog-less vacation we go ga-ga over every pup we see!

  2. what a jolly fellow. was the perfect cure for pug-starved humans.

  3. Hahaha, that sounds just like me! And never mind the vacation...I do it whenever I see a pug, even if I happen to be walking my own. :) NEVER miss an opportunity to pet a pug, that's what I say.

  4. please post again. we are lonesome.
