Remember how Cupid was drinking out of the dog's water bowl? Well, the dog germs must have been too much for her because the other day, I caught her drinking out of my water cup.

And, yes, it is August and I am still drinking from a snowman mug grin

Have a good weekend everyone!

A Sign

Cupid and Henry

I offer you proof of how hot and dry it has been in FL the last few days. It has been so bad that the cat has succumbed to drinking out of the dogs' water bowl.

Cupid has her own water bowl that is out of the pugs' reach. However, she never drinks from it. I change it daily and everyday I shake my head and wonder why we even bother putting out a water bowl just for her because she never drinks from it.

But, even though Cupid ignores her bowl of water, she never drinks from the pugs' water bowl either. You know, she can't risk the dog germs and all that. Instead, she prefers to return to her roots and forage for her water supply. She will sneak a little water from the sink and from time to time I have caught her drinking out of the pool. Something I try to discourage, but let's face it, Cupid has a mind of her own and isn't one for following directions.

But, the other day, when we were sitting down to breakfast, the cat strolled right up to the dogs' water bowl and started lapping up the fresh water. It was such an unusual sight that everyone, including the pugs, stopped and stared. My first reaction was to get a picture, but I didn't have my camera handy. But, lucky for me, Cupid came back to her new watering hole the same time the next morning and I was able to snap a picture with my phone.

As you can seen from the look on Henry's face, everyone is surprised that Cupid now drinks DOG water.

New Rule


I think if the cat deems the grass dry enough for her delicate paws, then the yard should be considered in adequate condition for the pugs as well. You hear that Luna. I'm talking to you. And Benny, I'm looking your way too.

Yesterday, when I took the pugs out to go potty in the backyard before dinner, I looked around and I had Henry, Sol & the cat in the yard with me. Luna & Benjamin were taking cover and it wasn't even raining. It had stopped raining about an hour before we went out. Why was the cat out in the yard with us? She wasn't there to go potty. She was there to supervise. Because the speed of the pugs' potty activities also affects whether or not her dinner makes it to the bowl in a timely fashion.

Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures

Cupid & Benjamin

To give you an idea of how cold it was during our recent cold snap, here is a shot of Cupid trying to keep herself warm under a blanket on the couch. Now, the odd part isn't that Cupid is snuggling under the blanket, but that she dares to share the couch with Benny. Benny, by far, is her least favorite pug and the fact that she would even consider laying so close to him shows exactly how cold it was here. I think the expression is something like "when hell freezes over". Well, hell may not have froze, but Florida sure did.

New Pet Storage

The new entertainment center

Well, it has been 2 weeks now since Grampy gave us his “hand me down” television. It is a doozie of TV. It is so big actually that we had to buy a whole new entertainment center for it.  A few weekends ago we went furniture shopping to find something to go in the living room. We hunted all over when we finally landed at IKEA.  At IKEA we settled for the “million piece, you assemble at home if you can follow the pictures” model.  Between moving the old entertainment center and filling the new one, it took a full 2 weeks to get the living room back in order.

One of the reason we liked this entertainment center so much was that it had a lot of storage.  You can see that the cat thought that it was a new bed and play house built just for her. She is always anxious to lend a helping paw.

Now that it all assembled you can see what those drawers are actually used for.

Harnesses & Collars


Nails & Meds
The treats actually are kept in the kitchen.

Yes, almost the whole entertainment center is used for doggy accoutrement. There is a drawer for collars & harnesses, another for leashes and 2 for costumes. Yet another drawer is dedicated to ear cleaner, eye drops, a nail grinder and teeth cleaning products. Goodness gracious, I think the pugs have officially taken over! You would think that Paris Hilton herself lived here and needed the extra “closet space”. On the bright side, everything is now in one central location instead of scattered all over the house in crevices of storage here & there.

You may also notice that we stuck to the pug colored décor. This is always beneficial to limit the showing of dog hair!

As far as the pugs’ opinions, well, they don’t even seem to notice. Benny is a little overwhelmed watching TV with us more so than before. He gets particularly anxious and barky when we watch Greatest American Dog and It’s Me or the Dog. Those now life size pups are a real “threat” to his home.  He also isn’t too fond of the Nasonex Bee or the Geico caveman.  Those commercials always get a few puffs from him.
