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

Pooped pug (not the kind we like)

This is what a pug looks like after 5 days of play at the kennel / Doggie Day Care. (We were on vacation.)

He is pooped!
Trouble is, he's also poopy. Little buddy caught something there and hasn't been feeling too good... all over my house. You know what I'm saying?
Poor guy... and poor Pottery Barn rug!
Luckily - he usually goes for the bathtub - GOOD DOG!

Mornings at the Wilders'

Mornings at the Wilder's are a special time.
After everyone's walked and fed, I sit down for coffee,
Torrey Kittee settles in to her sunny perch in the window,
and Sigmund's taking a liking to finding a warm spot on the carpet.
He grabs a toy, chews for a while,
then settles down for a mid-morning nap.

Pug and his... Pug?

Does anyone else find it slightly weird that Sigmund is chewing on a... PUG?

He picked out this toy last week. We were out enjoying First Thursday - spending a little time in the stores... and this stuffed pug was in a basket on the floor. It's not for dogs - but Sigmund saw it and grabbed the little guy's tail and went to town! I looked at the clerk and handed her my credit card, no questions asked and said, "I guess we'll be buying that, now." I didn't really want to - but I couldn't stand the thought of some little girl picking it out and holding it after Sigmund left his doggie slobber all over it.

Pug in Pictures

Just a few pictures of Sigmund that make me laugh!

"Beth and I would like to take this opportunity to provide you with a little public service announcement. Please feed Sigmund snacks in moderation or he may end up looking like this. - Mike"

Ok- so that's the note and picture my friends sent me because they think that guy looks like a pug - and looks like Sigmund! ...... That's mean - for Sigmund!

Pug and Petey

How cute are they!
Petey came over for the weekend and we took the dogs to the beach!
This was them begging to get out of the car to play.
Who can resist those faces!
These two dogs love the beach... they ran, and ran, and ran, and ran...
How is it dogs know the beach is just for them?

Sigmund vs. Senator - Round 2

The pup pals go at it again. I love how the little dog always seem to win!
