Social network for pugs and their people.
Tin Tin was affected by scabies on his left elbow quite some time back, but thanks to prompt discovery and a rigorous treatment schedule, he was cured very well. Likewise, he was struck by a minor bout of elbow hygroma (or so the vet called the bulge) on his right elbow, but it was also treated early on, and we got him cured without any surgery and all that. Now the problem is that these have left a dark patch on both elbows.
The vet says that it is fine, but I am worried…Continue
today we dropped Bella off with Larry for babysitting. He is visiting his parents, and I am doing the same while we were on our vacation in Dallas. After spending a day with my mother and grandmother, I am home now and missing the familiar night time snorts and snoring I've grown to love. I miss my pug, or as my mom calls her, my "living teddy bear".
On the bright side, Bella is getting some much needed bonding time with the other member of our small…Continue
We have been in Dallas since Sunday and so far so good. Bella is on her best behavior, which is surely fueled by the attention she's receiving from my family. The brattiness seems to have been left in Austin. Instead of sniffing for what seems like forever before finding a spot to potty, Bella goes straight out, then back in.
She has been polite to everyone she meets, even little babies who feel the need to pull on her ears and some children who swarmed her when they saw us…Continue
Hey Noodles, Mommy said, Wanna go Bye-Bye?
YES, I said, without asking Why
Mommy grabbed my leash and "dogbone" harness
I circled and circled until she made me rest
Then off we went in the car
It seemed like we traveled very far
We drove to a big white house and parked
Got a call today from the rescue group I work with that they were helping a group out of Maryland get a Pekinese from a shelter near me. They needed someone close by who could get this litle guy. He only had till 4:00 today until they were going to put him down. Healthy 5 year old Pekinese they had found roaming the streets. I was to pick him up and keep him until tomorrow when I will go meet a lady in South Carolina who will…Continue
Just a quick post.
Belle is famous! She's the Best Friend Friday post on TonyaPhotographyBlog! Check out our little spoiled pug on her site http://www.tonyaphotographyblog.com/?p=2212 .
BTW, Tonya is a fantastic pet photographer. She shoots out of NY.
Tin Tin may have improved in his ettiquettes and manners while out on a walk, but he refuses to be intimidated by anyone, especially large breed dogs.
Yesterday, Tin Tin was out on his evening walk and decided to relieve himself at a spot where, unknown to him, from inside a compound, a menacing German Shepherd was watching him. In no time the German Shepherd started growling and then barking rather furiously at Tin Tin. Had the gate been open, he would have attacked Tin Tin,…Continue
I was out with my hubby the other day at night when I witnessed what i found appalling. I was out in an area called "Marine Drive" and there, some people run horse carts or "Tongas". These are decorative, lit up and meant for joy rides, and are mostly for the benefit for out-of-towners or tourists from other parts of the country, who want a fun ride on a horse cart by the sea in Mumbai.
I was at an ice cream parlour enjoying an ice cream when I saw this horse pulling a cart…Continue
Bella has been enjoying our walks lately. The semester has ended and I've been able to take Bella on longer strolls once the weather cools in the evening. She walks about like the world is hers to explore, and wants to meet everyone she sees. The pug never wants to come home.
I try to trick her into going in the direction of our apartment by changing course towards home without directly retracing our steps. Bella puts up a good fight when it comes to going back inside,…Continue
When it comes to a Pugs’ health, like any other dog, things can go wrong. In fact, based on statistics, you can pretty much expect at least one major health crisis in your Pug, usually two. There’s nothing you can do about these things. You just can’t change fate. But there are things, some obvious and others not so obvious, that you can do to give your Pug its…Continue
So, I've become very health conscious as of late and there's a pretty decent sized park within walking distance of my home. Well, Sir Pudge and I went fr a walk around the park today. He makes quite the work out companion! He was perfectly happy to follow along beside me on his leash while sniffing everything he could.
Friday I'm taking him to Petsmart to have him bathed, ears cleaned and all that good stuff. I'm so glad he found me. He's such an awesome doggy.
Woke up this morning to take Bella out on her morning potty break, and I must say that she is quite the brat. I have to "herd" her in the direction we have to go in, but she has a defiant streak in her. I don't blame the little gal, I forget that she's only been with us for a relatively short amount of time (about 5 months) and she isn't a puppy at 3-4 years old. I'm very sorry to get frustrated with her, every time I see what she's doing she seems to just want more time out and longer…Continue
I would like to introduce you to the three destroyers of this site. Most of you already know about the many beds, that I have gone through with Linus and Lizzy, not to mention the pocketbooks that Linus has destroyed. Well he has also gone so far as to chew up my sunglasses, my son's earphones, and the new one today my earphones, alone with my now teeth marked mp3 players. Molly just got done telling all of us about the tennis ball that Izzy went through in on sitting, and now she chewed…Continue
