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

Sigmund's New Shoes

Sigmund hates to walk in the snow (especially with all the salt on the sidewalks), but he REFUSES to walk in these shoes. Guess I wasted a wad of money for nothing!

Sigmund's New Shoes - Second Try

Cyclocross - East Coast Style

While Sigmund enjoys his new (temporary) life in New York, he has missed one thing this fall/winter: watching Patrick race cyclocross!  Lucky for him, Patrick brought cyclocross to Staten Island.  Not only did he race well (2nd), he won the fam some Belgian chocolates!  For the full race report... check out P's blog.

Staying Power

Sigmund is ensuring that Patrick sticks around.
If he's in that chair, Sigmund in (or trying to get in) his lap.

Party Pooper

Sigmund's a party pooper.
First - he didn't want to wear his Christmas sweater and matching scarf.
That's him pouting.
Then - he spent much of the time in my friend's bathtub.
We still can't figure out why.

Snow, Sigmund and Columbia University.

Sig in the snow!!!

3 to 6 inches!  Sigmund LOVES it!  We'll see how much he likes it over the next few weeks.

Missing Christmas in Portland

NYC is quite beautiful at Christmas,
but we miss PDX for the home-y-ness of the holidays.
(This was our tree 2 years ago.  It was bigger and better last year.
Wait until you see the NYC tree!)

Pug on a Pile

Someone didn't want to get up this morning.
Even when I stripped the sheets off the bed.
Sigmund got right back in them.

City Life's Hard

Where's a guy supposed to go?

Turkey - Yum!

I came home from Dovetail with a few leftovers just for the pug.
He quickly devoured the turkey (which was incredibly moist and delicious, if I might say).
Soon after, NapaChick's lap turned into the perfect napping location.

Pug in the Snow!

Let it snow! (Just not too hard.)

Christmas-time just got even better in NYC.  Sigmund now has snow flakes to chase around his school!  What's that Sigmund?  Your paws were cold?  But, you won't wear boots?  Ok.

Missing Patrick

Sigmund misses his buddy.
He's sitting in Patrick's luggage right by the front door, 
eagerly awaiting his return.
Christmas will be here soon.
