Any Given Day

Henry, Luna and Benjamin

On a typical workday, while I am hard at work in my office, this is how the pugs amuse themselves.

Super Power


As far as pugs go, Henry is longer and taller than most. At the very least, he has the distinction of being the biggest of his pack. Sometimes his size doesn't work to his advantage, but to Benjamin and Luna Henry's size gives him a super power. He can stand on his hind legs and see on to the table!

Henry seems to understand that this indeed a super power because he does not wield it very often. Instead he reserves it for extreme cases. Like when pugkin bread or noodles are just hanging out on the table. He is smart enough to know that if he used his power to peer on to the table too often, it would mean trouble. He keeps it cute by using his power only when some of his favorite things are in need of rescuing.

I know this isn't the greatest picture of Benny, but when I saw it it reminded me of a picture of baby elephant seal that I saw on The Guardian. They bear an uncanny resemblance if you ask me.

View Benny's long lost cousin.

Toy in the water bowl

When asked what I love about Benjamin, Henry & Luna, one of the things high on my list is that they make me laugh every single day. I was treated to a fine example of their silliness just the other day when we came home from running errands.

When we let the pugs out of their crate, in their excitement, the boys always grab a stuffed toy and run around the house with it in their mouth. Well, apparently, Henry was thirsty and had a bit of a dilemma on his hands because he didn't want to put down the toy down to get a drink. So, he just dropped the toy on the side of the water bowl.

Benny was thirsty too, so he grabbed a quick drink with the toy hanging out on the ledge.


And Henry came back for another drink and that is when the stuffed toy went for a swim.


You may also notice that the stuffed toy is a doll. It was another baby toy that we bought for Luna that was from the same mermaid toy set. However, one again, Henry commandeered it.

Armchair Guard Pugs


To say that pugs are guard dogs would be a stretch, however, to say they are of no use in keeping an eye on things would be an understatement. I think the problem is with the word guard. My pugs don't really guard anything. I would imagine they would guard a piece of pumpkin bread with their life, but that would imply that they wouldn't eat it right away and actually have something to guard. But, I digress. Perhaps, a better word is surveillance? My pugs are great surveyors. Because surveillance requires observation, it does not require them to take action. And I would say that observing is a very strong pug quality. They observe me go to the kitchen, they observe me get a blanket out and beat me to the couch.

While most of their observations are made in areas that don't really need observing, I have to say that the pugs do a very good job of letting me know when anyone is around the house. Mailman - check, neighbor's lawn guy - check, delivery man - check. Most of the time, they alert me to routine things, but there have been a few times that they let me know about things we weren't expecting.

Just a few days ago, Henry alerted me in his patented "woo, woo" that there was a cat hanging around our side yard. Which was good, because Cupid does not take too kindly to other felines pawing around her territory.

And the true genius is that pugs have their paws on the pulse around the house and you would never know it. They do all their surveying from the comfort of the couch or a cozy dog bed or a lounge chair by the pool. And they always look strangely disinterested. But maybe that is their modus operandi - make others think they are not paying attention when they really are.

But make no mistake, the pugs are in surveillance and not the guard dog business. Because unless doggie kisses are kryptonite to those with ill will, the pugs would not be of much assistance. But the good news is they would alert the proper authorities and have them take care of it. Delegating, another pug strength.

Benjamin, Henry and Luna with Bubbles

The pugs had some fun with bubbles this past weekend. Luna was quite fascinated with them and had the most pop right on her nose because she kept trying to smell them.

Henry and bubbles

Henry didn't seem too enthused by the bubbles. He was more interested in the wand instead.

And Benny, true to form, was terrified of them. Exhibit A below.

Guys & Dolls

Benjamin and Henry

A week or two ago we were in Walmart making a quick stop to get milk, when we saw this cute baby toy hanging from an end cap in the baby section. It immediately reminded us of Luna so we plucked it off the display strip and made a mad dash to the checkout with our milk.

We only ever buy stuffed toys for Luna anymore. We used to bring home a stuffed toy for each one of them and the boys would take theirs hold it on their mouth for a second and then drop it and look at us like, "What did you bring me that is edible?"

Luna, on the other hand, still gets excited to get a stuffed toy and plays with them the most. The boys are happy to play with one from the bin from time to time.

The little girl mermaid toy reminded us of Luna because she loves kids. I don't know why, but she just about pulls herself out of her harness if she sees a child when we are out on a walk. She sure as heck didn't get that from me. So, we thought the little girl mermaid with its little pony tails would be a fun toy for her.

Luna was very happy to get her new toy and played with it the entire night. The next day, I noticed the boys were hanging out with the mermaid. At first, they were trying to play it all cool, like, "Well, Luna just left it on the pillow and we just wanted to sit here, ya know?"

But, then I spied Henry playing with it and then just sitting there like this, which I found to be a little disrespectful. Have some manners, Hank!

Benjamin and Henry

An then later that day I saw this:

To which Benny replied, "That will teach her to take my puffy!"
