In keeping with yesterday's theme of snuggle pictures from the archives, here is a shot of Henry and Luna from November 2009. Again, "Wow! Look how dark Luna's face is!" My second thought on this one is, "Look how clean the puff pillow is!"
Knowing how much Luna loves her puff pillow, this picture just cracks me up. Luna is clearly sulking and is trying her best to make Henry get out of her puff pillow.

I was flipping through my pictures last weekend and came across this shot of Benjamin and Luna from April 2009. My first thought was
"Awww", but then I was like, "Wow, look how dark Luna's face is!"
I'm pretty good at remember to take pictures to capture events, but I never seem to go back and look at them. I love to look at old pictures and surprise myself with pictures I forgot I had taken.

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!

I always talk about how much of an impact that Sol has had on my life, how she taught me so many things in her subtle ways. But, I think Sol impacted Luna as well.
Solsey had a calming effect on Luna. Since the day we adopted her, Luna was always a very nervous dog. Loving, but still nervous.
After spending time with Sol, Luna significantly calmed down a bit. She seemed to trust us even more. It was like Luna and Sol could relate. They both came into our home in similar circumstances and Sol told Luna it was OK. Relax. You're good now. Solsey conveyed something to Luna that humans could not.
In addition to helping Luna heal, Sol also taught Looney a few tricks. Before Sol, Luna would eat almost anything we put in her bowl. Sometimes begrudgingly, but she ate it nonetheless. Solsey taught Luna that if you don't like what is in your bowl, object. Heck, Solsey demonstrated how to object quite frequently.
And Solsey has taught Luna well. Luna continues to object to her mid day meals to this day. At lunch time, the pugs get a little bit of kibble. Since Luna has a hard time chewing the kibble, we give her a little bit of wet dog food. Well, there are a few flavors that Luna does not care for. When we figured out that Luna did not like those flavors we did not continue to buy them anymore. But, we didn't want what we had on hand to go to waste, so we would put down the food and if Luna objected, we would top the food with a tiny bit of cat food. Luna would then happily gobble down her food.
Well, what a big mistake that was! Now, at lunch, the little miss, sniffs her food bowl and if there is no cat food on top, she walks to the center of the kitchen and stares at you, wagging her little tail. She'll look at you, then look at the cat bowl, then back at you. And until you put a dab of cat food on top of her food she will not eat.
I'm sure Solsey could not be prouder!

It cracks me up when the pugs peer through the cutout on the back of the kitchen chairs. You really can't do anything in the kitchen without them knowing about it.

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!

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.

Seriously? I don't know why we even bother giving Luna a bowl. I think she might just prefer it if we dumped her food on her placemat.
