Gizmo finds the weirdest places to sit

Gizmo always finds the weirdest places to sit. He goes up onto the nightstand, onto the bookshelf, on the little cart we use to bring stuff upstairs from the garage, and now, in the dish washer.

Puppies are coming over tonight!

Ipsy and Gizmo

We visited Gadget at Pug Central today, and boy, he was really happy to see us. It’s good to know that he misses us, too.

In other news, I may be having several pug puppies stay with me for a few days! I can’t wait!

Ipsy loves the Bridge Lounge

It’s ME!

Originally uploaded by jmatthew3.

First off, I think this is the first time i’ve posted a picture of myself on here. This is me and Ipsy, and as I was trying to take a picture of us, she started kissing me. I don’t think you can see her tongue in this picture, but she’s in mid-lick.

Last night, we went to the bridge lounge for a humane society event, where there was a poetry contest. The winner, as decided by some judges (one of which runs Three Dog Bakery) would win a night’s stay at the W hotel in Downtown New Orleans.

That being Tricia’s favorite hotel, she decided to write a poem and enter the contest. Everything was going well, she got up to the microphone, I brought the dogs up to the podeum to sit on some chairs for everyone to see, and then Tricia started reading the poem she had written about Emily, who recently passed away.

She got through about two lines of the poem, and couldn’t continue. So, she beckoned me to read it for her, which I did (Quite well, if I do say so myself)

Anyway, the judges were moved by her poem and her display of emotion, and she WON!! How cool is that? See Tricia, you still have creativity in you.

Update: As I apparently do every single time, I identified ipsy and gizmo wrong in the previous post. Ipsy’s in the front, not Gizmo.

Useful Pug Products

Shopping cart pugs

So freaking cute

Originally uploaded by jmatthew3.

This evening, I made a big trip to Wal-Mart for supplies, and my condo building has some shopping carts we use to unload our cars. Well, tonight, i decided to walk the pugs right after unloading the newly purchased goods.

Anyway, they made it into the shopping cart and had this picture taken. I think it’s interesting how Gizmo takes more of the “lead role” now that it’s him and Ipsy, rather than him and Gadget.

Not that Gadget is much of the Alpha male, it’s just that gadget is always popping up first in the pictures.

Ipsy’s here!

Gadget is going back to pug central for a little while to train for a possible showing in San Antonio (I that’s where they’re holding the Pug Nationals this year) So, in his absense, Ipsy is here to keep Gizmo company.

Oh, in other news, Gonnie, who is Gizmo and Gadget’s brother, just got his championship. Off to retire for him, now!

Dog Powered Scooter!

I just saw the dog powered scooter off of the Make Blog.

How neat is that? I think we should get one for Gadget to lose some weight.

Gadget begging for cheese

Gadget begging for cheese

Originally uploaded by jmatthew3.

Tricia was eating some cheese this morning, and afterwards, Gadget just stayed right by the cheese, even after we went into the other room. he was staying by the cheese, just hoping we’d come back over and give him some.

Of course, I did, and this is the picture of him getting some.

Ack, fleas!

Gizmo and Gadget under my desk

So I guess it’s inevitable that even the most inside-loving dogs get fleas once in a while, and well, i guess that time is now.

Gizmo and Gadget had fleas last week or so, and i’m guessing the hartz flea junk i put on them didn’t do a good enough job of protecting them. Anyway, Gadget’s got them again. As a quick fix, i put some more of the dreaded “flea junk” on him, but I’m really going to have to give another flea bath, then get the better advantix product.

And i suppose some sort of flea collar would be appropriate now. I never had a problem with fleas at the Saulet, but I guess that’s because they spread flea killer outside. Now that i’m on more public streets with (probably) more dogs in a smaller area, there’s probably more NEED to put flea killer out there, but there’s nobody doing it.

Some va-poo-rize for fleas would be good about now.

Emily is gone


Originally uploaded by jmatthew3.

All I can say is that I am in love with my pugs. They are so entirely lovable it’s uncanny.

Pugs have this special something that’s so endearing. They have such personality, such emotion — they just love you so much.

I know Tricia loved Emily very much, even though she didn’t live with her anymore, and I’m very sad that she won’t be around anymore.

Tricia, I know you’ll probably be upset when you read this, but I want you to know that I miss Emily too, and it won’t be the same when we’re at Pug Central without Emily going crazy when you let her into the bed.

Emily was such a trooper, putting up with all the puppies — hers and otherwise, she’ll really be missed.

We will miss you, Emily.

Pug Playdate

Chloe & Gizmo & Gadget

Originally uploaded by jmatthew3.

So Friday, my neighbor’s dog, Chloe, came over for a playdate. The three of them went wild, running around. Chloe’s a really young pup, so she’s got more energy to zoom around the house with. Chloe ended up switching between chasing Gizmo, then Gadget, then back to Gizmo.

Oh, and Chloe is a French Bulldog.

Yes, pug postcards

Gizmo and Gadget decided (in secret) that they wanted to expand their media empire. Specifically, they thought that their Mommy’s suggestion to make a pug postcard was a good idea. Therefore, I’ve gone ahead and made the very first urbanpug.com postcard!

You can get your very own package of 8 postcards, sized 4×6 at the urbanpug cafepress store
