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

Big Time

Sigmund's big time.
His face is THE FACE for this local photographer:
(at least for the pet section)
He shot this picture of Sigmund during the 2007 Boutiques Unleashed.
(You should have seen the pics of the two of us! I'm trying to buy them.)

Portland's Next Top Models

(Ignore the cheesy smile- Nice Anita!)

Get ready for "Boutiques Unleashed!"
Fashion for Both Ends of the Leash

Last year, Sigmund and I were invited to be runway models for the Dove Lewis fundraiser. Guess what: since we didn't stumble down the stairs despite the heels, and because he wowed the crowd with his many twirls and handsome good looks, we've been asked to strut our stuff again this year.
I modeled in that cute dress from Mabel & Zora on NE Alberta. Sigmund wore a rockin' collar/vest from Lexi Dog. I don't know yet what I'll get to wear this time.

Here's the information from the website:
"Come see the hippest hounds and humans around on the runway at Portland’s premier fashion event! Boutiques Unleashed offers a fun and sometimes hilarious look at the latest styles from local boutiques for people and pets. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres & cocktails, bid on items in our silent auction, browse the shopping pavilion, and mingle with some of Portland’s stylin’–est dogs and people. You’ll love our new venue for this year’s event: Staver Locomotive a very cool space in the heart of Portland’s NW industrial district...wait until you see what we’ve done with the train tracks! Models this year represent Portland’s unique flair for fun, personality, and dedication to community; we’re sure you’ll recognize a few! All proceeds to benefit the DoveLewis Pet Loss Support Program."

Lazy Day

Check Sigmund out:
He's got his feet crossed,
head resting on his pillow,
lounging in his soft bed.
That looks a great way to spend Monday morning.

If you hear anything or see any pug matching her desciption, could you call me?
