Careful, it’s getting hot out there

Summer is here again, and depending on where you live, it’s either already hot or it’s going to get hot soon.

Pugs are brachycephalic, which means not only that they have a short nose, but also that their ability to cool themselves is less than other dogs. You see, dogs cool themselves via evaporation in their nasal passages and with their tongues. Because pugs have less of that, they just can’t keep as cool as other dogs.

So, be careful out there this summer, it’s hot out there. Make sure your dogs have enough water, and make sure they don’t stay outside too long if it is too hot in your area (it is already way too hot in our area for gizmo and gadget to be out for very long, but oopsy is a bit smaller and likes to stay out a bit longer, but still not for too long)

A New Bed?


Gadget has found himself a new bed. He totally doesn’t fit into it, but he seemed to think it was comfortable enough.

If you can’t tell, this is the top of our garbage can.

Sorry it’s been a long time since I’ve had a chance to update. Since the last update, I’ve graduated from law school, had a big party at the house, and started the grueling bar exam review process… Along with taking care of three pugs and a baby who can now do LOTS more than she could a few months ago, including get into lots of stuff she shouldn’t be into!

Here are a few pictures that include Martine playing next to the baby pool w/ Oopsy, Oopsy & Gizmo taking over Martine’s Toddler Bed, and Martine NOT giving Gadget his Chicken Jerky! Just look at Gadget’s face, he’s saying “Oh no you didn’t!”
