The Everett Pugtrotters

We aren't in this picture. In fact, we don't even know these dogs. But they do look like some Pugs that we would like to hang out with. We just like the picture so much that we just had to post it.
Duke actually stole this picture from the Seattle Pug Rescue website. We hope they don't mind. It's from the 2004 Seattle Pug Gala. And the costumes are from These guys won the "Career Pugs" costume category. We think they definitely deserved it.

The Party's Over

Mom and Dad are back from their vacation, and they had a wonderful time. We had a great time too, partying with our human cousin Keith. We are pretty sure Keith had fun too, even though he wasn't very fond of the sleeping arrangements. You see, when we go to bed, we have to be right up against a human. Mom & Dad are pretty used to it, but apparently Keith didn't appreciate being made into a Pug sandwich. He seemed to get used to it though. We think.....

We were so excited when Mom & Dad got home that I ran around the house at full speed for about an hour and a half. Yep, it was a fun weekend, but we prefer to hang with Mom & Dad. Next time, we are going with them. Whether they like it or not!

On Hiatus

Mommy and Daddy leave for Ocean Shores tomorrow morning to celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary. They had planned on letting us update the blog while they were away, but apparently Duke screwed that up too! Mommy caught him looking at pictures of naked Boston Terriers online, so now our computer privledges have been revoked. That darn Dukie! Oh well, I guess we'll see you all next week.

Happy Anniversary Mommy & Daddy

Clean Bill Of Health

We FINALLY got the test results back from the vet, and as I predicted, I don't have ringworm. I knew there was no way I could have something that sounds that gross. I mean really, ringworm? No way! To celebrate, I think I should get to go back on my treat-filled diet. Please??

In other news, Mom & Dad are going away this weekend to celebrate their 5th anniversary. That means we get to spend the weekend partying with our human cousin Keith. Mom & Dad have been busy all evening writing notes for Keith. How much to feed us, when to feed us, what to feed us, blah blah blah. As soon as they are out the door we are finding all those notes and chewing em up. hehehe

Duke Is In The Doghouse

Last night was not a good night for Duke. I don't want to say exactly what he did, but I can tell you that mommy had to go out today and buy new pillows for the guest room bed. And she had to wash all the blankets and sheets. That darn Dukie! And now, after having full run of the house for the past few weeks, we are once again relegated to the family room. This is not fair, I didn't do anything wrong, it was all Duke! Oh well, I am not too worried about it anyway. Just look at us. How long can they stay mad at a couple of cute little pug faces like ours?

Chloe Traded Her Wheels for Wings

We are all so very sad to have learned of the passing of a very special friend. Chloe the Princess Pug passed over the rainbow bridge Thursday due to heat stroke. Chloe was an inspiration to dogs and dog lovers everywhere. Her time on this earth was much too short, but we take comfort in the fact that she had a wonderful family who cared for her and loved her dearly. Our hearts and thoughts go out to her Mommy and Poppy, and her brothers Pugsley and Buster.

We'll see you by the bridge Chloe, and when we do, we know you will be running, happy and free.

We've Been Tagged

We got tagged by Ragus Pug's Mama, so here goes:

5 weird things about Gidget:

1. I will not let people touch my face, unless I know them very well. And don't even think about trying to give me a kiss!
2. If I have a large treat, I will walk around the house with it in my mouth whining like a baby for a good half an hour before I eat it.
3. When I am eating my supper, I will take each kibble out of the bowl and put it on the floor before I eat it. One at a time.
4. I do not like riding in the backseat of the car. In fact, I will bark and whine non-stop until we reach our destination unless I am allowed in the front seat.
5. I love to watch TV. And if I see a doggie on the TV, I will bark like crazy and try to get behind the TV so I can let them out.

5 weird things about Duke:

1. Sometimes when I am taking a walk, I get so excited when I am marking my territory that a deuce accidentally pops out, if ya know what I mean.
2. My tongue does not fit in my mouth. My mama says that my tongue got switched at birth, and somewhere there is a St. Bernard walking around with a little Pug tongue.
3. I do not like it when other dogs mark my territory. Sometimes I get so impatient waiting for the other dog to finish that I will lift my leg and pee on them.
4. Although I like to consider myself a tough guy, I am easily scared by the most obscure things. One time there was a CD that was reflecting sunlight on the ceiling, and I was so scared by it that I hid under the table for a day and a half!
5. I get so excited when I see my food dish, that I will stand on my hind legs and spin in circles.

OK, thats 5 weird things about us, now we have to tag 5 more pugs. We are tagging
Pugsley the Lovely Lady Pug, Raoul from Raoul's Travels, Chloe, Buster, and Pugsley from Three Pug Mugs, and Brasco from Uncorked Lunch. We are tagging the latter four mainly because we cannot find their blogs anymore and we miss them!

Computer Problems

We must apologize for the lack of posts recently. It seems Daddy's computer is having some problems. I believe the technical term is "it took a dump". Daddy says it needs something called a new hard drive. This doesn't sound like a very important part to us, so we should be back in business in no time. We hope.

In other news, we made it through the weekend on our new diet. Our pupperonis and milk bones have been replaced by carrots and apple chips. I am still getting used to this change, but Duke doesn't seem to mind. Then again, he will eat anything you put in front of his face. I'm surprised mommy and daddy still have fingers. hehehe. On the bright side, we are getting a lot more walks around the neighborhood, which I LOVE. Hopefully, we can get in shape and put an end to this healthy diet kick. We are PUGS, not rabbits!

Vet Trip

Mom found a spot down around my, ahem, nether-regions, so being the totally over-protective pug mom that she is, off to the vet we went. I'm not very fond of the vet, but I sure do love the people there. When we got there, the ladies all came running out to pet me and love me up. They were swooning all over me. Hey, when you got it, you got it. Everything seemed to be going great right up until the time they put the thermometer in a place that is supposed to be an exit only. Then I remembered why I don't like going to the vet. grrrr. But anyway, it turns out the spot might be ringworm, but they won't know for sure until they get their tests back. As if that wasn't bad enough, the vet also said that I had gained a couple pounds. I find this very hard to believe. I don't think I get nearly enough food as it is. And now, I am going to get even less?! This can not be right. There must be a problem with the scale. I am a lean mean fighting machine, and I need lots and lots of treats. Maybe if I do some pug-arobics, I can drop a few pounds and get back to my normal treat filled diet. I better go call Richard Simmons.

It Was A Pug Meetup

Mission accomplished. All the suspicious activity turned out to be Mom and Dad getting ready to take us to a pug meetup. We totally approved!

Gidget was all smiles.

I must admit, I am pretty handsome.

You had to wait in line to get a drink of water.

That guy in the back was getting some serious pug kisses.

Puppies will be puppies.

And finally, this is me on the ride home. I think I need a nap

Suspicious Activity

It's been a pretty normal Saturday morning so far, Gidget and I have just been lounging on the couch, but we are starting to think that something might be up. We have noticed an abnormal amount of activity in "The Room" this morning. "The Room" is a magical place that we are not allowed into very often. It is filled with harnesses, leashes, treats, old toys, and tons of other fun stuff. Not to mention lots of dryer lint. Yum. I love dryer lint. But I digress. All this activity has got Gidget and I on double high alert. I've got Gidget doing some recon work over on the couch, and we plan to rush "The Room" the next time one of the peeps enter it. I plan on getting to the bottom of this. Or at least scoring myself a rawhide treat. Or some dryer lint. Anyway, I'll let you know how this operation turns out as soon as I complete my mission. This wont be easy, Gidget has fallen asleep on the couch. Looks like I am going in solo.

When Gidget Met Duke

This is a picture from the day that I first met Duke. December 15th, 2003. I remember it well. Mommy came home from work early, and she had what I thought was a "visitor" with her. Well, this "visitor" quickly claimed all of my toys as his own. I figured no problem, he can't be staying very long. A couple days later, he was still here. And he peed on my bed. And he still had all my toys. "No big deal" I said, trying as hard as I could to be a good hostess and reminding myself that he can't stay forever. Well, it's two and a half years later. Duke is still here. And I'm pretty sure he isn't going to leave anytime soon. I must admit though, he actually has turned out to be a pretty good little brother. I never would have guessed it, but we're buddies for life now. But he still won't share the toys with me. I think I'm gonna go bite his back legs. hehehe

Rocky Squawky

This is our sister, Rocky the Bird. I don't let her sit on my butt anymore. Sometimes, Rocky squawks all day long. We find this most annoying. Duke says we should just eat her. I think that is a bad idea. Mommy and daddy would be quite upset if we ate our sister. Not to mention the fact that poultry gives Duke gas. hehehe
