About Me:
I'm a runner and camper, but also like my hammock time. Dogs are part of life's joys, and mine are my life. And pugs are the BEST dog for taking naps with.
How many pugs own me:

About my Pugs:
I have two babies, my little 2 year old fawn pug Lola and my 6.5 year black male pug Benicio.
I have had Lola since she was 6 months old, a rescue from a puppy mill. At home she is a little devil, VERY bossy, but a professional napper and cuddlebug. Outside and with others she is soooo meek, timid and withdrawn, leftover anxiety issues from her puppy mill life.
I recently adopted Benecio who was given up by his first family when he "didn't suit their lifestyle" - can you believe that? He is a charming, friendly, mellow pug with no issues. He's been a tremendous help to Lola (and me) in healing after losing our best buddy, a 3.5 year old fawn pug Orson. Orson was the life and party of the house until very recently, a true larger than life pug personality at home and out, he was quite the party animal. Benecio is not a replacement for Orson, but our special silver lining in our pug tragedy, and we already love him to pieces, he is sooo happy to have a little sister (even though she is a bossy one!) and humans to lavish affection on him.

Benny (Benecio) is a sweet pug

Posted on December 1, 2011 at 4:32am 8 Comments

We are on day 4 with our new darling foster.  Now named Benny short for Benecio.  Che just wasn't working as a name for us, and he is already responding to Benny, our little food motivated pugs can learn quickly when they choose to!  He was described to us as well mannered but not affectionate or a cuddler.  Well he is very affectionate with his kisses, and he had his first nap cuddle across my legs yesterday. I feel I have really lucked out with the little fellow, he is adjusting so…

New family member

It was like a little whirlwind of joy entering our home last night.  Life is such a roller coaster.  We only very recently and unexpectedly lost our guy Orson last week.  We are still devastated, and will always always miss him, he was the best dog I've ever had.  I've never before felt such pain.

But as life works in funny ways, over the weekend we met a handsome black 6 year old fella that was in dire need of a loving home.  His family gave him up to our local pug rescue because he…

Hi, sounds like Lola and Hektor are a real pair. My last pair were completely settled down by age two and had become wee old men, Hektor at four is as bad as he was at 6 months, so I have given up expecting him to settle. We are off on holiday in January and Hektor will be going into home boarding. Just as well I know both of his possible carers well enough to give them chapter and verse about him. Trouble is he is as good as gold when he is out of my charge, aren't they all. Last time he stayed with Miriam she cured him of begging at table, some thing I did not allow but could not stop. Hopefully she can cure a few other things, like going for dogs he does not like. I am off now to view your pictures and put faces to names. Helena

It is nice of you to say that Hektor is handsome but that pretty face disguises a terror. He is the most dominant of any of my past Pugs, my own fault I bought the most dominant Puppy in the litter. Love him to bits bu,t he is a handful. I hope your two are settling down together and you are having fun with them. Helena

Welcome to the Family Vada, Lola and Che, may you all have continuing happiness and enjoy being with all of us. Helena and Hektor

Yes my girl has been gone for a little over a month now, and she had lost her sister a couple of years before that, that is why we have the other two.  Linus came to cheer Lily up after we lost her sister Lulu at age 11, and then Lizzy came along to give Linus someone more his age to play with.  We miss our Lily so much she was a very special old girl.  So I think your baby would be happy with a little friend it helps them along to get through their loss.
