Martine hugs Tivo and Gizmo


Meet Martine’s new Pug! We found this stuffed pug at Target, and we had to get it for her. Actually, at first, both Oopsy and Martine were scared of it, each in their own different way. It didn’t take Oops that long to realize that there was nothing to be afraid of, but it took Martine a few days. Eventually she figured it out, and now she LOVES it. I am pretty sure she realizes it is not just any stuffed animal, but a PUG.

Tricia named the stuffed Pug after our favorite household gadget. She named the stuffed pug TIVO.

I’m sure we’ll accumulate lots of stuffed pugs, and I’m sure they’ll all get named. She’s going to have a very pug-filled childhood…


Also, now that Martine is crawling around more, she can do what amounts to one of the cutest things possible.  She crawls over to her pug brothers and hugs them! This is very fleeting, and both Pug and Baby are moving quickly in poor indoor lighting, which makes it very difficult to photograph. I think this one is one of the best.

Frick the Pug – Hotel for Dogs

I just found out about this movie via LJCFYI, and I love that there is a Pug in the movie.  His character’s name is Frick.  Gizmo is jealous! He wants to act!

It’s called Hotel for Dogs, and their website has lots of fun stuff to download — screen savers, backgrounds, aim icons, email signatures, etc.  Check it out.

Canine Cooler Bed?

Tricia just found a canine cooler in a catalog.  It would be perfect for gadget, because he is always getting out of bed to go lie down on the tiles, where it’s cool.

Has anyone tried one of these?

What are the most common pug behavior problems?

In your opinion and experience, what do you think the most common pug behavior problems are?  I’m talking correctable behavior problems, not health problems.

What behavior problems have you had?  How did you fix it?

Martine is the size of a pug…


Martine is the size of a pug… and she begs like one too!  She now is able to recognize that we’re eating food, reach out for that food, and make a fuss until she gets what she wants.  These are some pictures of her doing just that.

Notice that she is just about the size of a pug, and she’s about the same weight, too.  Last doctor’s visit (2 weeks ago) she was about 22 pounds, which is just slightly less than what Gizmo weighs.


Dog Cupcakes – PUPCAKES!


There is a local cupcake bakery called the Kupcake Factory that makes dog cupcakes on Saturdays.

We really like their cupcakes, and our pugs LOVE the Pupcakes!!  They are bananna bread-like with peanut butter frosting, and the pugs devour them!
