I'm sure there is an official term for it, but do any of your pugs suffer from "dry nose"? Henry's nose gets very dry on the very tip and if it get dry enough it will actually flake off. Luna's nose is sorta the same way, but not as bad as Henry's.
Luckily, just a little bit of Vaseline for a few days, clears things right up.

Over the years, the boys have come across some interesting things on their walks. When they were pups, it was way worse because anything they found they tried to eat. Now, they are a little bit more selective. Key words: little bit.
Of everything they have ever found, Henry takes the cake for stumbling across a whole peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Henry found the sandwich on a hike in Maryland. It was slightly off the trail and I had never seen Henry get so excited about one of his finds. Unfortunately, we didn't let him eat it, because what is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich doing on the side of a hiking trail. But, even though Henry did not get to enjoy his spoils he still held the title of best food find while on a walk.
Henry has held his title for 10 years now, but last week, Benjamin finally earned his own set of bragging rights when he came stumbled across a peanut butter and jelly sandwich of his own on his morning walk. Benny didn't get to eat the sandwich he found either, but he was so excited to tell Henry that he isn't the only one that has found a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Of all the things that we have ever found on a walk, never once did I think that we would find another pb&j sammy.

Sometimes the pugs amuse themselves in the silliest of ways. The other day I was cleaning out the trunk, and Benjamin, Henry and Luna were dancing around my feet acting like they wanted to get in the trunk. There was nothing the pugs would find interesting in the trunk, but they were adamant about getting in the trunk. So, I picked them up and put them in. They had a grand ole time, sniffing around and being nosey. Go figure!

This last week has me ever so hopeful that pug weather is officially upon us in FL. The mornings and evening have been breezy and cool. Of course, the middle part of the day is still pretty toasty, but the nice weather in the early am and evenings already has put a spring in the pugs's step.
Neither Benjamin nor Luna can walk very far with their back and breathing issues. So, we have been taking all 3 for a little jaunt and then taking Henry on a longer walk by himself. It's sad, because while Henry is itching to go for a walk, he doesn't want to go without Luna and especially not without Benny. Henry is having a hard time understanding that Benjamin, who has been on countless walks with him,can longer match him stride for stride.
Watching the pugs age, and age so differently, has been quite an experience. It has definitely affected us, but I'm surprised how much it has affected Henry. It's hard because I also know that he doesn't understand. Even if we don't want to accept it at least we have an understanding of what is going on. Henry, on the other hand, as smart as he is, doesn't seem to understand why things have changed.

The pugs are crated while we are away. When we get home, they are usually anxiously waiting at their crate doors to greet us. But, sometimes we are able to sneak in the house without them hearing us and we can catch them sleeping soundly. It is the sweetest thing to come in the house and hear all 3 of them snoring away. The pugs, on the other hand, don't like it when we make it back into the house without them knowing. Henry likes to pretend that he doesn't sleep while we are out. I'll keep these pictures around as proof that some little puggy sleeps quite soundly while we are out.

The other evening I was laying on the sofa catching a few minutes of rest, when Henry made his way onto the sofa and precariously balanced himself on the edge. He then flipped himself backwards and looked at me as if to say, "Here is my belly. Pet it."
I've never met a dog that likes to be pet as much as Henry. He never tires of petting. I have even said to myself, I am going to pet Henry until he walks away or falls asleep. Needless to say, I broke way before he did! After 45 minutes my hands were tired!
Do your pugs like petting as much as Henry does?

After basking in the sun, car rides are Henry's next favorite thing in life. When he has someone to hold him, he loves to ride with his head out window. When riding in the car, Henry loves when we pass by other dogs walking. He doesn't bark at the other dogs, but he stand ups up a little taller and sticks out a chest a little bit as if to say, "Hey look at me! I'm riding in a car!".
