Want an easy and fun way to get involved in animal rescue? If so, check out Pugfessions.
What exactly is a Pugfession, you ask? The Pugfessions themselves are decorated 4x6 postcards (or anything that’s about the size of a postcard, such as a photo or paper that you trim to size) that includes a “ Pug secret,” and ideally a photo or image of a Pug. And here’s the best part of all—$1.00 for every Pugfession received goes to Animal Haven(or the rescue group of your choice.. see website for details) to help shelter dogs-and WE give the money to the shelters.. the only thing you ever pay for is the postage stamp!
All you have to do is take a pic of your beloved pug and tell us your “Pugfession”—or maybe your Pug has a confession of his or her own? Break out your scrap-booking supplies if you have them, or make a Pugfession easily on the computer. You can even make Pugfessions with a photo and a Sharpie—simple! Check out www.Pugfessions.com for all the info on where to send them, sample Pugfessions, and more info about other “fessions” projects. Who knows—maybe your Pug will even become famous in a Pugfessions book? But that’s just a perk—it’s all for a good cause.
This video of a sly pug getting some extra treats for himself has been around for awhile, but it still makes me laugh every time I see it. So what better way to start off the work week than with a smile from some pug antics. Enjoy!
It’s Wednesday and if the work week is already getting to you here is a little something to help you make it through hump day. A video of two 4 week old puppies playing. They are so young and utterly adorable.
My favorite part is when they both simultaneously fall over.
The April Issue of Bark magazine features an article titled Indelible Dogs by Lisa Wogan. In the article, Wogan shows some tattoos that were inspired by lovable canine companions. Not surprisingly, some of those tatts were inspired by pugs. You can see two incredible pug tattoos on the Bark blog.
