A day in the life of a pug in Portland's Pearl District. "Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made." - Roger Caras

Pug in a Pose - No Doubt!

Peanut Butter Jelly

Ok - this is slightly crude - but it's so funny I can't look away! I think it's even funnier that someone had this much time on their hands to edit this!

"Take Your Pug to Work" Day - Not Really

So Friday was take your dog to work day, so we thought. I didn't find out it was cancelled at KATU until I showed up WITH Sigmund. So - he had a half day there. It was so fun! He sat under my desk (actually - mostly in my lap) all morning while I worked. It's so interesting how a dog or a baby just calms people down and takes their mind off whatever stress is pending. I think take your dog to work day should be every day!!!

Oh ya - He's wearing his sweater vest. We didn't want to violate the dress code!
And - there's that tongue again! (who knows how I always catch it in action!)

Pug with Heat Stroke

Careful what you wish for.
Sigmund was just complaining about it being too cloudy, now it's too hot!
It's 101 degrees here.
The poor little puggy spent the last two days out in it... I thought he was going to die today.
We spent it in Salem for the Dragon Boat races - OUTSIDE!!!
I poured water on him all day, forced it down him, but he barely made it to the car at the end of the day. This is how we'll see him the next week - while he makes up for it! Sleeping!
Nice for him - his snoring and consistent barking kept us up all night while we were camping.

Pug Wishing for Sun

(the sound your tongue makes when you stick it out)
That's what Sigmund thinks about the clouds.
He's ready for summer,
and for the sun to come out ALL day,
not just for a few minutes in the afternoon.

Say huh?

This is Sigmund's Sigmund Freud impression. (Can you tell we just discovered youtube?)
So tell me about your mother?.... Reeaaallly.... Yes, Yes.

Shout Out!

Sigmund's giving a big Shout Out to the Castaways!!!!!
Our dragon boat team took 2nd place at this year's Rose Festival!
Pretty good for a team that's never been to the finals!
What fun it is to win - especially when you have so many teams to compete against.
Next up - Salem - look out!

Sigmund and The Senator!

That's the look of pure joy!
Sigmund met his new friend Senator -
can you tell they like each other?
Sigmund's doing the chasing now -
but Senator sure dished it out...
despite being half Sigmund's size!
I love this picture -
Senator's in flight!
