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

City Dog Goes to the Country


Heaven! That's what Sigmund thinks about life in the country. The downtown city dog had his first trip to a farm this weekend.

We went to visit family in Medford and let's just say Sigmund LOVED it! Patrick's grandparents live on a few acres outside of town - and Sigmund got to run, and run, and run, and run - with no leash! He was especially interested in the Chickens and Horses. We could not keep him out of the horse pen... Despite an electric fence! The monster was after one thing - HORSE POOP! YUCK!!!!! I thought for sure this would be the end of him. Despite the horses weighing hundreds of pounds more than him - he decided to take them on. Chasing and barking at them like he was bigger and badder! At one point the horses started bucking, I'm freaking out and Sigmund's going nuts on them. One horse chased him out - but Sigmund went back for more! The only thing that saved him - me shouting his favorite word - "DINNER!" That gets him running back every time. If you notice in the last picture, he has his leash back on. Yep - that's what happens when city dogs goes crazy in the country!
