The Evidence

I finally have proof of what I have to put up with around here. This is a video of Duke the barbarian trying to pee on me. Fortunately, Daddy yelled at him before he actually finished the deed. We have deleted the audio so you wont be startled when Daddy yells.

So does anybody out there have any good ideas on what I could do to get back at him?

Let It Snow

This week, Gidget and I got to experience our first big snow storm. We got about six inches of the white wet stuff, which might not seem like a lot to some of you, but it was to us! We must admit, it was pretty to look at, but it sure wasn't fun to poop in!

How long until springtime?

The Tongue

This video has been rated PG-13. Pugal guidance suggested for anyone under 13 dog years.

So is he a lizard or is he a Pug?

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!

We hope all our doggie buddies got enough to eat this Thanksgiving.
Now, somebody get me some Pepto-Bismal. Please?

Mom & Dad are upstairs baking pies for the big feast tomorrow, so we thought we would take this opportunity to list some of the things that we are grateful for this Thanksgiving. So here they are, in no particular order:

Butt scratches
Our big comfy bed
Supper time
Doggy Haven
Car rides
Visits from the Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door
Treats. Lots and lots of treats
Pug meetups
Laying on Dad in the recliner
And finally, that we have people who love us unconditionally. And we love them right back.

So what are you thankful for?

Supper Time

Dinner time around here is quite a ritual. First, Duke and I both get to go upstairs into the kitchen while Mommy and/or Daddy prepare our meal. I get my supper in a special Old Navy bowl, and Duke gets his in what is basically a molded piece of tin. Duke will eat out of anything but I will ONLY eat out of my own special bowl.

So anyway, while our meals are being prepared, I bark like a crazy Pug and Duke licks the dishwasher. Once the meals are ready, my bowl is put on the kitchen floor and Duke's bowl is brought downstairs to the family room. Mommy thinks it is best if we are separated during mealtime to avoid any, shall we say, conflicts. Once we have finished our meals (this usually takes Duke around 30 seconds) we both get an after-dinner treat and we go outside to take care of business. This process has worked well for us for quite some time now. At least until the other night, that is.

Daddy made the mistake of putting Duke's bowl down in my spot, and all heck broke loose. Duke immediately bolted for his bowl, I got all confused and wedged myself in between Daddy's legs, and Daddy found himself flat on his back on the kitchen floor. Somehow he managed to hold onto my bowl without spilling any, thereby avoiding total chaos. Still, it was quite an ordeal for all of us! I think Daddy learned his lesson though. He is now extra-extra careful when he feeds us. Or he just lets Mommy do it instead!

Duke Is Back In The Doghouse

Well, Duke is back in the doghouse yet again. He got a little anxious last night and decided to use the coffee table as a chew toy. In honor of Duke's latest, shall we say, "achievement", I thought we would take a little trip down memory lane and I would show you some of the other things Duke has destroyed in the past 3 years.

This is what he did last night

This is what he did to an end table

This is what he did to a door

Mom & Dad cover this with a throw rug

This was the first coffee table he tried to eat

And finally, this is what he did to the wall. Mom & Dad tried to fix it, but you can still see his teeth marks

So anyway. I think you get the picture. Duke has some separation anxiety issues. And I haven't even mentioned the three remote control's, several pairs of shoes, and countless toys he has destroyed. And probably a few other things that I have forgotten about. To be fair it had been quite a while since he had destroyed anything. At least until last night. It's nice having a brother who makes me look like a complete angel. Thanks Dukie!

The Underbite

Duke has quite an underbite. Normally, you can't see it because his tongue is hanging out, but here is a good picture of it. Mommy and Daddy just think it is the cutest thing. I, on the other hand, think he just looks goofy. hehehe

In other news, it was a pretty boring weekend after all the excitement last Thursday. Duke says he is very sorry for scaring Mommy and Daddy over the whole dryer sheet incident. But he also thinks they just over-reacted. Knowing Mommy and Daddy I would have to say that this is one of the few times that I agree with Duke!

Duke's Big Adventure

Last night was a very weird night. It started out OK though. I scored one of those square fuzzy things from the closet floor, and I took off running with it. Dad was trying to catch me, but he didn't stand a chance. I have got some pretty good moves, and the old man is well past his prime. After a little while Gidget started chasing me too, so I decided to eat the square fuzzy thing. No way was I sharing it with Gidget!

Right after that though, Mom made me drink some really nasty stuff. Yuk. That was not fun. Then Mom & Dad just sat on the floor looking at me all weird. They were really starting to freak me out! I couldn't figure out what their problem was. After we sat there for a while, they put my harness on me. Yippee! We're going for a car ride! And I got to sit in the front seat! I never get to sit up front. Gidget would have been so jealous.

So anyway, I was having great fun up in the front seat, but then we stopped at one of those places that have the metal tables. I don't like metal tables at all. Something bad usually happens to me when they make me sit on a metal table. I was shaking like a leaf and wishing I could just go home. Then, to my utter disbelief, Mom & Dad just abandoned me there. I couldn't believe it. What could they be thinking leaving me with these strange people? Fortunately, I am a people Pug, so I got along great with these new people.

After a little while, I got very tired and fell asleep. I missed my bed, but I was so sleepy that I couldn't keep my eyes open. I slept for a little while then I woke up feeling all groggy. And my throat was sore. And I was still in a strange place. I was starting to wonder if I was ever going to go home. So I hung out with the new people for a little while, then finally Dad showed up. Whew! What a relief. He hadn't forgot about me after all. I was sooo ready to go home. I missed Mom and Dad, and believe it or not, I also missed Gidget.

So anyway, Dad took me home and I got to ride in the front seat again! I was pretty tired though, so I mostly just slept. When we finally got home, I was so happy that I chased Gidget around the house for a while. But then I got real sleepy again and decided to take a nap on MY OWN COUCH! Woooohoooo for my own couch!

All in all, it was quite an adventure, but I don't think I want to do it again anytime soon. I would much rather just hang out at home. Oh and also, for some reason I now feel really fresh and static-free. Go figure. I just wish Gidget would stop calling me Mr. Cling-free.

Duke Needs Your Well-Wishes

We had to rush Duke to the emergency vet tonight after he ate a Bounce dryer sheet. He picked it up off of the closet floor and before we could get it from him he ate it. We called his regular vet who told us to give him a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide, and if he didn't vomit in 30 minutes, we should take him to the emergency pet hospital. They didn't have the scope that they needed to get it out, so they had to call in a specialist. We left him there and they told us they would call us in a couple hours. We are just worried sick right now. As all of you know by now, Duke and Gidget are a lot more than just dogs to us. All we can do now is just wait and hope for the best. We really miss our little Dukie, and we can't wait to get him back home with us. We love you Duke, and we'll see you in the morning.

Update: The vet called to let us know they have removed the dryer sheet and Duke is doing fine. We are all quite relieved and will be able to sleep much easier tonight. Especially Gidget, who won't have to share the bed with her brother.

A Bad Idea

So much for our poop shelter. Daddy had put up this umbrella in our backyard so that Duke and I could keep dry while we did our business. If any of you watched Monday Night Football last night, you saw how wet and windy it has been around here lately. Well, after the umbrella was blown around the yard for the third time, Daddy decided to fold it up and put it away. At least it didn't end up in the neighbors yard. Oh well, I guess we will just have to get used to pooping in the rain again. grrrr

Socks Beware

I'm usually a pretty easy-going Pug. Except for when it comes to socks. The sock is my mortal enemy, and I must show it who the boss is. I don't care if it is just laying on the floor, or if it is on Dad's foot. The sock mocks me, and if I see it, I MUST attack! And if a couple of toes come off in the process, so be it. That's just what I call collateral damage. So if you happen to come into my house, I strongly suggest you leave your shoes on. Otherwise, I cannot be held responsible for what may happen.
