What a weekend!

This weekend was super busy with lots of fun things to do. Of course, the holiday began on Thursday, with thanksgiving. You’ll see here what Gadget likes to do…


Just what everyone else does after dinner, take a NAP!


Oopsy likes the sofa too…  each pug took a person.


And there’s no doubt that Oopsy loves Jessica!


On Friday, we took Martine to Lafreniere Park to feed the ducks.  She doesn’t really understand ducks yet, so she kept running after them, trying to hand-feed them bread.  She would run up to them and say “here you go duck.”  We also took Oopsy to the park.


She loved it, but we couldn’t let her get too close to those ducks!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! This is just a fun link to a news story about a dog that works at a drive through! Gadget wants to be at a drive through, but he wants to be ORDERING!

New Pics

I’ve got a few new pictures to share. Two of these pictures are just Gizmo with Martine while she’s taking a nap. The third picture is of Martine & Gadget, where we have a sideboard that the pugs use as their “little hiding space.” I think they like going under there because they’re safe and because they know that they are out of the way and won’t have to get up and move when someone walks by. They also know that we never go down there… At least Tricia and I don’t go down there.

Martine has figured out that she can get down there with them.


Useful Pug Products

New Advertiser – DesignerDoggy.com

First, I’d like to welcome our newest advertiser, DesignerDoggy.com, which sells a variety of boutique and luxury dog items.  I encourage you to go take a look at their site, just to see what they have.  Even if you don’t buy anything today, take a look and see what they’ve got.  Maybe something will make a good gift later?

Also, one of the interesting things from their site that’s actually really cool is this Dog Brick Puzzle.  For those of you who don’t know, dogs have an innate need to hunt — it keeps them from being bored.  If you can give them some way to “work” for some portion of their food, it can really help to prevent dog boredom.  This kind of puzzle is one way to make your dog work for some of his food.  By leaving this dog brick puzzle filled with a few treats before you leave the house, it will give your dog something to do while you’re gone!

I’d also like to thank our existing advertisers.  They help make Urban Pug possible.  Don’t forget to check their sites out once in a while.  You can see all the existing advertisers in the “Urban Pug Advertisers” section of the right column.

Sleepy time for Gizmo

Martine and Gizmo get along fabulously.  Every day before we leave the house, she looks forward to having us take three treats out and give them to her.  She then goes from pug to pug, placing the treats in their mouths.  They’ve totally got her trained, and she loves it!  I even made some pumpkin pies the other day, and she made her way into the fridge, found a butter knife, and scooped out a piece of pie — not to eat, but to give to GADGET!  In other words, it was just like she broke into the fridge and cut a piece of pie for the dogs.   I walked in on this happening, just as Gadget was taking a bite.
This picture is of Gizmo and Martine, asleep.  She loves to sleep with the pugs, still, and, as you can see from this picture, they love to cuddle up with her.
