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

Celebrities with Pugs!

Now why are we not seeing some of these New Yorkers?  We need to get out more.

Look who I smuggled in to the J-School!
Security has caught me a few other times, then promptly kicked me out.
Not this time!
What harm is he doing, really?
It's a private edit suite and he sleeps in the corner on my jacket.
He's cleaner than the M.S. students.
You should have seen all the garbage, food and beer cans I had to clear out of this room just to be able to work.

Caption Contest!

That's Sigmund chewin' on his "cigar," as we like to call it.
I can't think of a clever caption.
You think of one!

Feed me!!!!

Sigmund's developed a new habit.  He seems to want more food.  So instead of politely coming over and asking for more with a sweet stare, he's taken to picking up his bowl, carrying it over and throwing it at me.  I'm not feeding that bad habit!

Hang in There

It's almost over little buddy...
I finished the writing part of my thesis/documentary!
14,792 words!
Now Sigmund just has to patiently wait out the editing!

Reading Rouleur

Don't tell Patrick, but Sigmund enjoys reading his fancy bicycle magazines while he's away.
The dog hair between the pages might give him away!
Check out Rouleur for yourself here.

Please Play!

Sigmund is so desperate for me to put down the computer and play.
He tried to lure me (unsuccessfully) with two toys.
Grad school stinks for a pug.
It's almost over buddy!!!!
