Social network for pugs and their people.
as some of you know Cletis was starting to get out of control. i got him when he was three months old and "petted" him too much. i felt bad because he had left his mom and dad in the only home he had ever known. that was my first mistake! the second was not to walk him on a leash right away.
i have started doing the the "pack leader" thing and he is really improving. i enter the house first, i make him sit before removing his tie out rope etc. i also started doing the knee…Continue
Oh boy, so the jealousy has been rough lately. Padrona is so jealous of Pandora at times and they started going at it again today. Well in the process Pandora bit Padrona on the wrist to defend herself and now Padrona has a boo boo. Does anyone else go through this with their bitches? I play with them constantly, let them out to run around, play ball, spend time with them separately and together, etc. Any info you could…Continue
So I was talking to my mom about getting another dog. You know the saying, mother knows best? Well maybe she does and maybe she doesn't, but she made me laugh this morning when she told me what she thought about me having two puggy babies living under one roof with me.
Like I said in an earlier post, I am thinking about getting a dog. I wanted a fairly athletic dog to work out with, one that would protect the home, a barker. Bella is too nice and too sweet to ever attack anybody or…Continue
so when we went to the vet a few months ago, the vet asked if I was sure about Bella being 4 years old. He looked at her teeth and said that she could be a bit older. After reading some articles I think, maybe Bella is older. She has missing teeth, tartar build-up that some sites I've been to said indicate she is older. Also, Bella has a little grey around her chin. Can my baby be a bit older than I thought??
So we're about to leave back to Austin, and I just knew I wasn't going to get through the weekend without Bella giving me a scare. She made friends with what I'm assuming was either a stray dog or dog that got out of his family's fence. I didn't know they were going to be friendly, so of course I was going to be wary of a larger dog trying to sniff at my little puglet. I made the mistake of yelling "BELLA! COME HERE!", which in hindsight seems like such a bad idea, but I was panicking. The…Continue
Newest Foster Atty pug.
Went and picked up our new foster a 5yr old black female named Atty. Don't know much about her other than she was pulled from a pound near us. She was a stray and looks like she could have had puppies before. Oh and she is huge...lol About 28 lbs and a lot of grey. Not absolutely sure she is full pug. See what ya'll think. So far, it's only been…Continue
I recently entered some photos of Puga, Pixie & Louie in SEPRA (South Eastern Pug Rescue Adoption) calendar contest. To my elation…Continue

After reading what Lily and Linus had to say about Lil Lizzy Bit, I would just like to add that she has been a joy to have around. She is super sweet, but as you all know she can be a real…Continue
Making Bella's food did not work out so well with our living arrangements. I think making your own dog food for your pug is a great idea, just not one I feel is best for me and my pug at this time. So we made the switch back to kibble.
Well, thinking that Bella would be let down over her change back to dry dog food, I expected her to nearly starve before touching it again. You know what people say, "Don't give them human food or your dog won't want to eat their own…Continue
So we got Sabrina friday night. So far she has been fitting in great. She is totally cute,and funny,but shes stuborn as well. She will only potty in one spot,but to get there we must walk from the house,across the street past another house and we end up next to the pool. now living in arizona,this is not fun,for me and especially not for her as it is verry hot outside. lately she has decided she will not go. her collar is loose on her as not to squeeze her or choke her so when i get too far…Continue
Little Franklin was interviewed along with his owner Karen Minton. Here is the link to his article
Thank you to those who have "chipped in" - He is off to a great start in his new life ahead :)
Pug Hugs to all!
Several people on here have asked me about Lily's legs, so I thought I would show you a couple of photos of how she stands. You can see her hind foot is unstable, and her front elbows are beginning to point outward from holding all her weight. She can just about walk these days, spends a lot of her time sitting on her butt. I feel bad for her because there are days I think she might be in pain, but then there are days that she seems fine. Anyway just thought I would post these photos so…Continue
We're getting into the swing of things here at our new home. Bella is a real social butterfly around here. She gets a lot of attention from the other house members who so far seem happy to have her around. They say she has "won them over". It is funny to see how spoiled Bella can be in her quest for attention. During a house meeting, she crawled onto each person's lap and stared up for some loving. I awkwardly apologize for her antics, and mentioned not to let the cuteness fool them. She…Continue
