Making Friends


The ballpark was full of dogs and fans last friday night. All the dogs were super friendly and the pugs wanted to meet them all. So needless to say there was reaching across the aisles.

Have a great weekend!

Take Me Out to the Ball Game


Last night was Bark at the Park night for our local minor league baseball team. We found out about the event a few months ago and have been looking forward to it ever since. Since we had a few months to strategize, we decided to only bring Henry.

We were a family of four pugs, when we first learned of the event and we knew that a baseball game on what would most likely be a warm April night would be too much for Sol to handle. We also felt like Luna would not enjoy going to the game either. With not seeing well, Luna doesn't really like crowds. She much prefers small gatherings. Then we thought about it a little more and we knew that Benny would just be crazy with all the ballpark food around. So we thought it would just be fun to take Henry and Benjamin & Luna could have a fun night at home with Grammy.

And Henry did not disappoint. We arrived a tad early, and while we were getting out of the car, Henry met several "Event Staff" people just arriving for work. We talked for a bit and then they went into the park for work. After a brief wait, the gates to the park opened and we got to go in and check everything out. The first perk of the night was that every dog entering the park received a dog biscuit. That made Henry happy.

We walked along and visited some of the dog related booths and when we got near the concession stand, we heard a group of people calling, "Henry! Henry!" Henry went running over and wouldn't you know, Henry had previously made friends in the parking lot with the most important people at the ballpark - the concession workers.

Feeling like a king, Henry waltzed right over to the concession and stood up at the window, ever so happy to say hello to his new friends.


We finally made our way to our seats and Henry watched the players warm up. There were a few dogs around making a ruckus, but Henry just ignored them. With a full belly courtesy of his new friends, he was on cloud 9 basking in the setting sun on a perfect evening watching some people running around on what looked like some very nice grass.


After a few innings we moved up to the bleachers to get a different view and say hi to some friends. There Henry met a few other dogs and people. We tried to get a picture with the mascot, but as soon as he came near the dogs in our section went into full attack mode. Henry just watched, cocking his head to the side.

After a few more innings, we decided to head home, but not before making one more stop at the concessions so Henry could say good night to his new friends.

The Podium

Benjamin, Henry, Luna and Sol

In honor of the closing of the Olympic games, the pugs decided to hold their own medal ceremony. The event is unknown and the ranking is highly questionable. I'm pretty sure seating was on a first come first serve basis.

In any case, we enjoyed watching the Olympic games these past two weeks. Especially, yesterday's hockey game.

This was the sight during the Packers and Giants game a few Sunday’s ago.  Henry was most definitely chillin’ and he had the phone and remote with him so that he wouldn’t even have to bother to get up if the phone were to ring or if he wanted to do a little channel surfing.

Looking forward to your captions in the comments!

Henry with the scarecrow

Here we have Henry with last year’s scarecrow, a Baltimore Orioles fan (can you tell that we have not celebrated many sport victories in this house).  Henry was borderline obsessed with this scarecrow.  He treated the scarecrow like a real person and was always sitting at his feet and jumping up on his lap.  He was pretty much begging for the scarecrow to pet him.  As you can see in the picture, Henry and the scarecrow are deep into a conversation.

Looking forward to your captions in the comments!

Benjamin & Henry

For this week’s Caption This we are going back to May 2004.  We were still living in MD then and we attended a Pug Festival that was held at a local outdoor hockey rink (no ice, the players wore roller blades).  This was one of the best pug events that I have ever been to because it was great to be able to let the pugs off leash and not have to continually do the leash dance each time you meet a new pug or pug lover.

Being a hockey rink there were of course hockey goals there and I just could not resist setting Benjamin & Henry up as goal tenders.  This is one of my favorite pictures of the boys.  Not because it is such a fantastic photo, but because it just shows that the boys are good sports and put up with all the silly things I ask them to do.

Can’t wait to see your captions in the comments!
