I think the pugs are in need of a beach day. I would love to get to the beach this weekend with the pugs, but I'm not sure if it is in the cards. The weekend is already getting pretty full and it is so hot. But, you never know.
I hope you get to do whatever your wishing for this weekend!

We needed to make a run to the pet store last week to pick up some food for Cupid. Henry was a little fired up that night so I thought I would bring him. He had a blast in the car on the way there and he was loving life going up and down the aisles at the pet store. Ironically, he was most interested in the fish stuff.
After I pried him away from the fish display, we rounded up some cat food for Cupid and then made a stop in the dog bone aisle so Henry could pick out some bones for himself and his brother and sister. After some debate, Henry selected bacon and roast beef flavored edibles. I thought it was an interesting choice because the boys have not had those types of bones since they were pups.
Once we got back home, I gave the pugs the bones that Henry selected. Henry was of course happy with his choice and Benjamin was also pleased with Henry's selection. Luna, however, was not so happy with Henry's choice. In fact, she passed it right up and took a nap on the couch instead. So, this meant that Henry had a second bone for himself. Coincidence or good thinking on Henry's part?
On a different note, if you are in the FL area and you are interested in fostering pugs get in touch with Central Florida Pug Rescue. They have a lot of pugs in their care right now and are very much in need of foster homes.

Look how young the boys are! This picture is from May 2005. Looking forward to your captions in the comments.

Happy 4th of July! And to our friends to the North a belated Happy Canada Day!
We had a fairly quiet holiday weekend. It is super hot here so we didn't do too much outside. But we did get a few games of chase in in the living room.
Since the 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays, I also wanted to share one of my favorite pictures commemorating today. I just love this shot of Benjamin, Henry, Luna and Sol. Oh, how I miss that little lady.
Where we live it is not illegal to shoot off fireworks. So many people put on their own little fireworks show. It drives me nuts and it makes the pugs even crazier. The one good thing about Sol and her deafness was that she was oblivious to it all!
Have a safe and happy 4th!

Further proof that Henry never sleeps alone. If Luna isn't snuggled up next to him, Benny sure is.
It was close to 90° when I snapped this picture, but Benny wasn't about to let the heat keep him from snuggling up to his brother.

Here in Central Florida there is a bit of a media storm over the Casey Anthony trial. The trial is broadcast during the day on all the major stations and is all over the news in the evening. With all the coverage the case has received in the last 3 years it is hard not to get sucked in. So, needless to say, we have been watching pretty much all of the trial on demand during the evenings after work.
The pugs always curl up on the sofa with us and watch. They got quite vocal during the testimony of one of the K9 officers. The officer gave a play by play of a video of his dog doing a search mission. The pugs got all fired up seeing the German Shepard on the television.
The best part is they humored us and acted like they had not seen that part of the trial before. But, the truth is that the pugs watch the trial twice each day. Grammy, and sometimes even Auntie M, has the trial on while she is pug sitting. The pugs intently watch the case unfold with Grammy and then happily watch it all again with us in the evening. These puggies are really up on their current events.

Benjamin and Luna love to hug up to Henry. Sometimes I feel bad for Henry because he almost never gets a moment to himself. But he never seems to mind when Benny and Luna come to lay with him. He's a good boy that way.
I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy some snuggle time with your pug.

Swimming for Henry means rescuing all of his toys from the pool. He has a set of water toys that float and are easy fro him to grab out of the water. After he gets his vest on, we throw all his water toys into the pool at the opposite end of the steps.
When he is ready, he goes to the first step in the pool and then jumps into the water to swim and rescue one of his toys. After he snags one of his toys from the water he swims back to the step with it and takes it out of the pool.
He will then mill around a bit on the pool deck, taking a break from his lap, and when he is ready he will jump back in the pool and rescue another one of his toys.
While it is fun to watch Henry, from the pictures you get a great idea of how Benjamin and Luna feel about Henry jumping into the pool. It makes them a nervous wreck! Plus, Benny always grabs the freshly rescued toy from Henry when he brings it out of the pool.

On Saturday the pugs went swimming for the first time this season. When the pugs go swimming for any length of time we put their life jackets on them. Having their life jackets on really improves their swimming.
We usually put their vests on poolside, but we were out in the yard, so we just suited them up out there. Henry was dilly dallying around in the yard and did not come in with us using the regular, human, door so he had to use the doggie door. Well, with his vest on he no longer fit through the doggie door. That will teach him not to be last.
