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 Crawl 2007 - Sigmund Wins!

Ok - So I finally have time to fill you in on the fun-filled "Pug Crawl!"

It rained... so typical for Oregon... but the Pugs didn't mind. What they did mind... wet costumes!

Sigmund rocked! He looked so crabby in his crab costume. He was not happy to have to wear that hat. I think his attitude sealed the deal for him, helping him take home the top prize. (That - and the fact he danced down the parade route! I knew that trick would come in handy.) That's his "before" and "after" up top! Too bad his "Bite me!" letters fell off!
And just FYI - Portland has a few anchor/reporter types with pugs. That's Kelley Day from KOIN and her 3, yes 3, pugs! They were characters from "The Wizard of Oz." So cute!
Check out the Oregon Humane Society's photos of the event to see more of the stiff competition. My personal favorite, the Volkswagon Bus!!!!!

Dog Mountain

A perfect Saturday -
Sunshine, Patrick, Sigmund and a gorgeous hike up Dog Mountain.
(Ok - so I didn't make it to the very top, but the view from the "Flowering Inferno" was still great and worth the pain I feel today!)

More Adventure

These pugs REFUSE to stay on trail. They have to explore, jump, climb, wade, and sprint their way all around. Please don't turn us in to the park police!
