Take a break!

Oh, hello. I just wanted to remind everyone out there to take time and smell the roses. Or the rhododendrons. Or the leaves. You know what I mean.

I met another cousin today

Out at the dog park, I met a cousin on the pug side of my family. He is a pug/border terrier mix. Sadly, my human didn't have her camera, but here are what his parents probably looked like:

He had a fully curled tail and a round head with some wispy whiskers.

As per usual, I was none too impressed with this so-called 'family member.' I walked off after a brief sniff.

Makin' pals at the dog park

I was a little porky last year but nowadays I keep in fighting form with regular trips to the dog park! It's the biggest dog park in the US, so I get plenty of exercise walking through it. 

I like going to the dog park so much I've even been known to smile on occasion!

Last time I went there, this little upstart kept bugging me. I gave her the obligatory sniff hello, but beyond that I'm kind of a cranky old lady who needs her personal space, so I growled at her and walked away. But she kept bugging me! Puppies these days, sheesh... So finally, I stopped to give her a second sniff to see just what was so great about her. 

She's all right. I like a pup with a little moxie- I'm mortified, however, that we showed up to the dog park in the same harness. The scandal!

Update! I'm still cute.

I know I haven't posted in a while, but I just wanted to reassure anyone who was worried about the status of my cuteness: It's still intact.

Springtime in California

The weather's been so nice here, I can't wait to just get outside and sit in the sun all day! There's no better time to go out and enjoy the garden, especially now that my humans have put so much effort into cultivating it. I just love to sneak around a fence they've put up and poke around in the freshly tilled flower bed. It's a good thing I've got this cute face to get me out of hot water.

My Tooth Saga

As you have probably noticed, I have a very 'unique' smile. Somewhere in between the Boxer and the Pug my genes couldn't decide what to do with my jawline, and I ended up with a lopsided underbite. It doesn't bother me, and most people think it's pretty cute! 

It used to give me quite a bit of trouble, though. Last year my humans took me to the vet for a professional cleaning and I ended up having to have nine teeth pulled! Mostly they took molars, but they also took one of my starring, front-row teeth! This is me before:

And this is me the day after: 

I was pretty shellshocked.

I'm happy to say now that my teeth are healthy and I love to eat like never before!

In order to keep that way, though, I have to receive a nightly toothbrushing. I'm not crazy about it but I tolerate it because I know as soon as that's finished I'll get my dinner!

Finally, that scrounger Millie is gone and I have the house and the humans to myself!

Peace at last...

Ok, maybe Millie's on to something

I have to admit that maybe I made a mistake in saying there's nothing to learn from my big sister. This weekend she taught me the fine art of sunbathing.

Eco-friendly, solar-powered pup.

All that sunbathing is enough to make me drowsy.

I'm so mellowed out, man, I don't even think I hate Millie anymore.

On the Subject of Butt Scratches

Butt Scratches make me go crazy! I'll be a perfect little angel as long as you're scratching my bee-hind.

This is one of my humans, cuddling my stupid step-sister Millie. I hate her! Why do they like her so much?

Today we went to the dog park at Point Isabel, which I love! I saw some cousins (a pug and a boxer), but wasn't much interested in meeting them. Millie was really rowdy but my behavior was exemplary!
