Happy Little Pug


Originally uploaded by jmatthew3.

Well, he’s not so little, but he is happy.

Here’s Gadget with a big smile on his face. I’m really busy with things this week, but I’m trying to keep putting new pictures up. Follow the links to flickr to see what I had for dinner last night!

Sleepy Gadget

Gaget sleeping on my lap

Originally uploaded by jmatthew3.

Tonight, Tricia was studying for a law school final, and I was working on a project at my computer. Gizmo ended up spending the evening on the chair next to his mom, and Gadget fell asleep on a chair i’d pulled up next to me, with his head nudged up against my leg.

This is the result.

Also, I’m working on a page about pug breeders for when people ask me questions. If you’ve got any input, please post a comment or email me at matt@urbanpug.com – THANKS!

I saw Gadget over on his pillow, and the position he was in was so cute I couldn’t believe it. I just HAD to grab my camera ASAP and get a quick shot.

Also, on the way to the store this morning, i saw TWO people walking pugs, and then, after all that, I saw a pug in a pug (vw) with his head out the window!

If only i had my camera then.

I think we all knew that our pugs were lazy, but this proves it!

Gizmo on my head #7

Originally uploaded by jmatthew3.

Gizmo loves to put his head on top of my head, so whenever i sit down on the sofa, he hops up onto the *back* of the sofa and sits so he can be right next to my face.

I’m not sure exactly why he does this, but he really DOES insist on it.

Gadget Loves Biting Knuckles

Gadget Loves Biting Knuckles

Originally uploaded by jmatthew3.

Gizmo, Gadget, Spirit, and maybe 1 or 2 of the other pugs have this obsession with biting your hand when they’re excited to see you. Not ‘bad’ bites, it’s more like the extension of a lick. Gadget especially loves to do this, and every day when I get home from work, I pet him (and Gizmo, of course), and I let him have a little bite on my knuckles.

Notes: I’ve added The Best Boys to my Great Big Page of Pug Blogs. If you know of any other pug blogs, send the links over, and i’ll add them!

Pug Bug!

I just love LJCFYI.

First of all, she’s a Pug Lover.
Second, the blog’s look and feel is just killer. It’s really a truly inspiring site design, to me.
Third, she gardens. (I’m growing rosemary, mint, squash, cucumbers, basil, and tomatoes on the roof right outside my window)
Fourth, she has a volkswagon (So do I)
Fifth, she’s a Pug Lover.

Also, she’s got a Pug Sticker on her car, and she posted it on her blog. How cool is that?

So, I’ve managed to rig the new gate so that it’s easy to put up — and i’ve figured out how to place it so that the boys can’t sneak under it.

All that is good. However, I’m sitting here looking at them lounging on the sofa, and I get sad knowing that I’m not letting them lie there all day. Gizmo looks SO content right now, and I’m confining him to a hallway!

Pugs, Gates, and Cards

I’ve been building up the e-cards program, and I’ve added all the images i’ve posted on flickr that people have marked as “favorites” to the ready-made e-cards. From here on out, all the images posted from flickr are going to have a little “e-card” button you can click to send cards.

In ACTUAL pug news, i’ve gotten a wooden wire frame gate to keep the boys in a hallway while i’m out of the house. I really don’t like doing this, but they’re not neutered, and they’re not going to be neutered. SINCE they’re not, they mark everywhere — not when anyone is home, though, only when they’re alone. We think it has something to do with them getting mad at us, but who knows for sure.

At first, the marking wasn’t a problem, because it was just on the floors here, which are concrete. However, the marking eventually moved to the sofa, which is a “very bad thing.” Anyway, forced to take somewhat drastic measures, the boys now stay in the hallway while we’re out.

Now, the funniest thing is that the boys have figured out that if i don’t put the gate up low enough (because of the baseboard), they can shimmy underneath it. We didn’t figure this out until we actually saw them doing it. — Imagine a pug shimmying, belly to the floor, underneath a gate!

You’d think there were food on the other side.

Here’s the news. I’m working on an urbanpug e-card service. You should now be able to click the little button that says, “send this as an e-card” — to send the photo to someone as an e-card.

I’m going to be improving it — right now, it looks pretty ugly, except for the photos, of course.

I’ll be improving the look of things, but for now, you can send urbanpug photos as e-cards.

Oh, and i’ll be adding all the most popular photos of the boys to a page of pre-made ecards for you to send pug lovers across the world.

The picture is of gizmo in my lap while i was coding this thing.

I was about to leave for work, then I saw gadget sitting underneath the stool, and it was so perfect, i just had to get some pictures and post them.

I’ve also posted a couple more pics of me sleeping with the pugs on flickr. You can click on any of the photos to get there.

Bedtime Pugs

Bedtime Pugs

Originally uploaded by jmatthew3.

For some reason, Gizmo and Gadget have figured out that they like to sleep at the head of the bed, squirming their body into the small of my neck.

They either do that or one of them just puts his chin on my head.

Anyway, they’re totally spoiled.

Well, we’re safe on this one — with a little luck. The Hurricane Dennis totally missed us. Thoughts go out to those who *were* hit.

This picture is of gizmo, almost looking like he’s at a bar ordering a drink.

After we got back from Mississippi, Gadget was really trying his hardest to look cute, and he pulled off some nice pictures. This one just has the perfect face.

Anyway, more pictures available if you click on the photo — it’ll take you to my flickr photostream.

We just got back from a long weekend at Hide A Way Lake in Mississippi, where a friend of mine has a family camp. We did some tubing, skiing, and some sunburning.

However, we did miss the pugs — they couldn’t go with us.

We’re back in the city now, so here’s a dose of pug. This one is me and the pugs at my parents’ house.
