Today is Henry's 11th birthday!
Henry is our calm and thoughtful pug. He is definitely a thinker and sometimes you can see the little wheels spinning in his head. He is also the most trusting of the group, sometimes a little too trusting. When he was a puppy, he rode in the back of our SUV in a crate so that him and Benny would not be wreaking havoc in the car while we were trying to drive. As soon as I would open the hatch and his crate, he would jump right into my arms. He trusted that I would catch him no matter what.
Ironically enough, as calm as Henry is, he has a bite sticker on his chart at the vet. That is because Henry has one rule: Don't attempt to clip my back toenails! When we try to trim his nails he gives us such a hard time. So we thought the vet techs might have a little bit better luck at getting his nails trimmed. They took him to the back to trim his nails and when everyone came back, Henry has this super proud look and a nice little bite sticker on his chart. Turns out he is better behaved for us than the techs at the vet.
While Henry loves to swim, lay out in the sun, take walks and eat treats, there is nothing he loves more than to be pet. He can be relentless in his pursuit of petting. If he is in a room full of people it is funny to watch how he works the room and gets everyone in it to pet him.
Happy Birthday, Hank!

Thirteen years ago, we sprung Cupid from the pound! She was 2 at the time, so today we are celebrating her 15th birthday. That is 105 in human years. Man, someone needs to get her on the Smuckers jar!
Happy Birthday Cupid!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Gotcha Day, Luna! 7 years ago we adopted Luna from Compassionate Pug Rescue. Luna was two when we adopted her so today we are celebrating her 9th birthday.
It is hard for me to imagine a life without this feisty little pug in it. I know I often talk about Luna's alpha female personality, but in addition she is the most loyal dog I have ever met. She loves her people and all she wants to do is spend time with them. I have learned so much from this resilient and loving pug over the years.

Today, Henry joins Benny in turning the big 1-0!
Henry has always been a laid back sorta guy. Never as hyper as Benny, but still always up for an adventure. Ever since he was a pup, he was never one to stay on the beaten path. He always wants to go off and explore. After all you don't find gum, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and other snacks on the path.
Happy Birthday, Henry!

Today, Baby Benny, hits double digits! The big 1-0.
Benny's approach to life has always been play hard, sleep hard and he still lives by those rules today. The only difference is he is now about 10% play 90% sleep.
He may have grayed a bit and put on a few extra pounds, but he is still the same old, lovable Baby Benny that is never far from his puff and always looking for pillows to fluff!
Happy Birthday, Benny Boy!

On Sunday, exactly one week after Benny, Henry turned 9 years old. Just like with Ben, it is hard to believe that Hank is 9 years old.
It was a gorgeous day so Henry started his birthday catching some rays in the yard. We needed to run a few errands, so we decided to bring the pugs with us. There is nothing Henry loves more than a car ride.
After we finished our errands, we stopped at a place that has a nice shady trail and took the pugs for a walk.
While on our walk, Henry spotted what he wants for his birthday.
Boys and their toys!
As always a birthday wouldn't be complete without a trip down memory lane. Here are a few of my favorite Henry moments shared on the blog.

On Sunday we celebrated Baby Benny's 9th birthday. As far as the pugs are concerned, it was pretty hot during the day, so we saved a nice walk for the evening.
For Benny's special birthday treat, I baked him Pug Bars. I got the recipe from Puglet of Daily Puglet. Puglet really seemed to love them and they had pumpkin in them so I knew that would be right up Ben's alley. Not only did Benny love them, but so did Henry & Luna.
Benny's first birthday rule was that if he had to wear a silly birthday hat, so did Luna and Henry or else he wasn't going to share his yummy Pug Bars.
And since it was Benny's special day, I let him take a big chomp out of the Pug Bars before I broke everyone off a little piece to enjoy.
All in all, I think Benny had a pretty good day.
