puggy quirks

I have been watching Rufus tonight and realised that he has quite a few random quirks...


he will only use the right hand side of the stairs to go up and down, never the middle, never the left..he is seriously going to wear the carpet out on that side lol.

he does not like to touch raw meaty bones/muscle meat with his paws, he would rather struggle than use his feet to steady his food so he can get a good chew on it.

he barks at ANY Lady Gaga song.

he just…

How to stop him from attacking the puppy pads?

Hi all,

I'm having trouble with my 8 month old puppy. He has been trained to go on pads since 7 weeks. He is toilet trained and it's been great. We live in an apartment so he goes on the balcony to toilet.

Just last week, there was major wind and it must have lifted the pads (I stick them down with masking tape) and kato must have thought: hey, those look like fun! Since that stupid windy day, he has been scratching the pads and tearing them to shreds and eating parts of it!!! It's… Continue

Black vs. Fawn.

From my experience with pugs, both black and fawn, I've seen some misinformation out there, and I would like to set the record straight.

I have heard that female pugs are more standoffish than males. This depends. Females are more attached to men, than women. Male pugs like the ladies. If the person observing is a man, they would say that male pugs are more standoffish than females, and vice-versa.…

Kloe is Going to Puppy School Tonight!

I just got her a new proper collar for school.  Tonight is her first class.  I'll post how it goes.  I won't have any pictures since I'll be concentrating on learning as well, but I'll post how it goes.  Wish Kloe good luck.  I'm hoping we have a natural learner here.  We can go on to agility training? :)  Or just back to the couch, we will see how trainable I am as well.

~A Little Getaway on Mingus Mountain~

Enjoyed a Pugslife visit from Aronda and Ron Thompson while we were camping up on Mingus Mountain.  The monsoons were in full swing a couple of weeks ago, so we retreated to the awning when the rains came.  Thankfully we did get to enjoy a yummy barbeque and s'mores! …

Questions to the common pug owner:

Hi! I'm thinking about buying a pug someday, so I have some questions to all you pug lovers. :)

  • How do you keep shedding down? Or is that an issue?
  • How do you keep them entertained (toys, outdoors, etc.)?
  • How many health issues have you come across with your pug? How did you handle them?
  • Do you dress them up? - fun question ;)
  • When no one is home how do you know/ make sure that they are happy?
  • How did you potty train your…

No Pugs Were Harmed In These Pictures...

I just posted some awesome Pug action shots.  Kloe play fighting with my Jake.  They look really brutal, but Kloe never once cries out and she keeps on coming back for more so I guess its just playing.  I put my hand into Jake's mouth while he was "biting" Kloe and he is using barely any pressure.  He is being a great guy to his new little sister.  Have a look at the actions shots, some really good pug running shots.  And lots of ferocious teeth showing!…

IN MEMORY OF SOUFFLE 5/21/1999 to 8/06/2012

This morning Souffle went to the Rainbow Bridge.  She wanted to give life one more galant chance but her time had come.  She was not about to cross the bridge without one more fight.  She loved life and didn't want the glaucoma to get the better of her but God had other plans and called her home.


She was a beautiful spunky gal.  She made sure breakfast and dinner were on time every day, that she went outside when she demanded and enjoyed sitting with the family.  She will…

A Few Things Kloe Likes to Do.....

First off she loves watching the toilet flush.  Very interesting all those wonderful smells and the water swishing about! :)

Secondly, she has found that the other dogs food is soooo much better than her own.  Luckily Jake is such a wonderful guy and he refrains from biting Kloe's head off when she sticks it into his plate and starts eating his food right next to him.  Then she goes over to Abbey's food and tries to eat hers.  She isn't as understanding. :)  Once their food is…

Zoey, driving us crazy

So we need help and bad, just not sure what to do with little Zoey...... She is now two, she drives us a little crazy.  She loves to chew on her feet lick them to death.  She loves to clean herself all the time especially in them.  She does this what we call the "pug scoot boogie"  where she spins around in a circle seemingly itching her butt on the ground, and she does it probably 50 times a day.  She refuses to completely potty train, and deposits poop in our closets all the time, and then…
