may i have some of that?

As part of the ongoing effort to keep the pugs' teeth clean, we've taken to giving them these chews. They were recommended by their puggy dentist, so I'm sure they're totally worth it.

Well, the pugs love these things. They're like the toasted marshmallow on the proverbial s'more for these animals. Of course the pugs eat them at wildly different paces -- Cleo like a shark, Deedee like she's never seen food before, and Sasha like the toothless geriatric pug she is, will gum and lick hers to death.

the beginning of Sasha's attack

she's getting into it now

now she's really showing it who's boss

Given that it takes Sasha approximately 1 billion times longer to eat her chew than the other 2, there ends up being quite a bit of watchful waiting. Behold the lurking 2 younger, hungrier pugs.

Deedee really REALLY wants another chew. perhaps Sasha's.


  1. those greedy eyes lurking in the background. good thing sasha opened her jaws wide to show, um, how toothless she is.

  2. Such polite girls. Fur will fly around here, no matter at what pace everyone chews. Sluggo wants his, and everyone else's. And well, noones getting near my treats. Hence, very few, scratch that, no chews for us. So not fair!

  3. Those begging eyes could not plead any harder!
    I wish I could have something like that,, but instead, my moms brush my teeth!


  4. The lurkers look like hyenas on the plains waiting to steal from a lion. My advice to Deedee..You better take a step back. The geriatric puggers will snap on you quick!

    Yeah..Mom actually brushes our teeth. WTH?! Why can't we have a nice chew treat? Life is not fair sometimes.
