Last Friday night, Henry got to go to a Daytona Cubs game. The cubbies are a minor league team and host a Bark at the Park night a few times each season. Benjamin and Luna have been to a game as well, but they didn't have as much fun as Henry. There is a lot of action going on at the games and neither of them were too fond of the bleachers or the steep steps leading up to their seats. So, when Bark at the Park night came around this year, we thought we would make it a special Henry only adventure.
I think Henry remembered his previous trips to the ballpark because as soon as we arrived at the stadium, he made a beeline for the concession stand. He was even lucky enough to see a concession worker that remembered him from a previous year! Needless to say, he scored more than a few tasty treats.
Henry also got to meet Cubby, the Daytona Cubs mascot. A lot of the dogs don't really know what to make of Cubby and tend to bark at him, but Henry played it cool. He was sort of like, "Hey, what's up?". Then when he realized that Cubby's big paws were functional petting hands, him and Cubby were fast friends.

Does this look like 3 pugs that are trying to go potty?
We took the pugs out to go potty on Saturday before we ran a few errands and the weather was so nice, that the pugs decided to hang out in the yard rather than potty. It was a bit windy out, which Benny loves because it brings all the smells to him. He will just lay there and his little smeller is working overtime. Luna was a little annoyed with the wind. It kept blowing her ears, and she wasn't too pleased with that. Henry was loving life and it's a wonder we ever got him to come back in the house before the sun set.

I wish every park we went to had a doggie water fountain. It is super convenient and it allows the pugs to rehydrate in the middle of their walk. Plus, it means I can leave the water in the car and don't have to lug it on our walk since I know there is a fountain nearby.
The funny thing is that Benny was afraid of the water fountain the first few times he encountered it. Luna wasn't too keen on it either. They kept waiting for it to fill up like a water bowl and wanted me to turn the fountain off before they started to drink. I guess they didn't want the fountain to splash on them, which is hysterical if you have seen either one of them at a regular water bowl. Both of them are super messy drinkers and Benny inevitably drags his neck wrinkles in the bowl.
Henry loves the fountain as it gives him a chance to channel his inner big dog. He doesn't drink from the bowl part, instead he drinks straight from the fountain.

I hate losing an hour when we "spring forward", but I love the extra hour of daylight that change brings in the evenings. It means we can take the pugs out for an evening walk and not have to bring flashlights with us. Plus, the evening temperatures in FL right now are perfect for pugs. Great weather, daylight and pug walks. This is absolutely my favorite time of the year!

The other day, we were outside enjoying a very sunny, but gorgeous afternoon. At first the pugs were milling about, but then began to settle. Luna picked a spot directly behind a small robellini palm because it was the only thing that was casting a shadow. The girl is like a shade seeking missile. If there is shade to be had she will find it.

It was a super busy weekend, but the pugs managed to get out on a few adventures. Since the weather was pug friendly we walked the trails at a local park. On the trail we came across a bunch of tree stumps. The pugs were happy to pose with the massive stumps, but even more happy to claim them as their own.
On a side note, this is going to be a crazy week at case de OBP. I will do my best to make sure the Daily Pug pictures get sent out but there might not be a blog post every day this week. If you don't see anything new from us don't worry. We will be back to normal next week.

We have been taking full advantage of the gorgeous winter days and getting the pugs out for walks as much as possible. The only problem with this time of year is we frequently run out of daylight. Other than that, this time of the year is perfect for pugs!
