I know this post is a few days early, but the pugs have decided that they are going to take a little vacation this week. In their eyes it will hardly be a vacation. Thanksgiving is coming and they must plan and ensure that everything goes off without a hitch!
So look for us Monday of next week and Benjamin, Henry and Luna will give you an update on how the big feast went.
Happy Thanksgiving! Have a wonderful week!

Not only was Benjamin Spider-Man for Halloween, but so was Grammy!
On Halloween night, Benny rushed up to Grammy's house to meet his fellow Spider-Man for trick-or-treating. Grammy wore here mask a bit better than Benjamin did. Benny's costume had some sort of kerchief that was supposed to be his mask, but he wasn't very fond of it. Instead of wearing it on his head, he wore it as a little cape. I think Benny was a little jealous of Henry's cape. I know Henry was not envious of Benny's headgear. This was the first year that Henry's costume did not have a hat and he was pleased as punch.

Well, another Halloween is coming to fruition. Each year we turmoil and ask ourselves (and often ask others, too), "What will the pugs be for Halloween?"
This year was especially challenging. We have a steadfast rule of "no repeats" and this year we do feel like we are kind of teetering on that line. By far the best costumes ever was the year that the boys (pre Luna) dressed as Batman & Robin. So that is why this year, the SuperHeroes theme is blurring the line of what constitutes a repeat.
In any event, we went with Superman (Henry), SpiderMan (Benjamin) and Wonder Woman (Luna). The thought process behind these SuperHeroes more lay in the behind the scenes thoughts. We first thought of Benjamin being SpiderMan since he has an arachnoid cyst in his spine. Arachnoids are spiders, thus, naturally, Benjamin makes an ideal SpiderMan. Henry, the only one (knock wood) that has dodged many a health ailment would then of course be SuperMan. Thus leaving Luna, the trooper dog of the century, fits the Wonder Woman costume (mind, body, spirit) to a tee (and boy does she ever rock her costume).
The group will try to go to the 4 or 5 neighbor's homes tonight in hopes of gathering some goodies. The walk this year seems miles long but we will be sure they don't miss a door. Henry will hoof it for sure. Benjamin will make a few driveways and then we will carry him. Luna will likely get carried right from the start. Seeing as how they have not come to love the Solsey pouch or the Solsey stroller yet my forearms and biceps will get a good workout.
We have to come to the reality that this will probably be the last year that they go trick or treating and thus likely the last year the canines will be costumed but they won't mind. They will just show up in the kitchen next year, dressed as a pug, begging for treats at the door of the fridge and then the door of the pantry. That will be enough to suit them.
Happy Halloween to the young, young at heart and the too old to care. OBP is almost there, too.
Check out Benjamin, Henry and Luna's previous Halloween costumes.

Memorial Day greetings from Benjamin, Henry and Luna!
The pugs celebrated Memorial Day by visiting one of their favorite parks and sniffing and enjoying the shade cast by trees planted in honor of veterans. I was very proud of them because they were very respectful and just sniffed the trees planted to honor the veterans. The others…well, those were free game.

Sorry for the lack of posts last week. The holidays were super busy, but also super great!
The pugs found out that they were on Santa's good list. They received lots of toys and treats for Christmas and got to go for lots of walks and car rides. When it came time to ring in the new year, they were pretty tuckered out from all the holiday excitement.
I hope 2012 ended on a high note for you.
