Social network for pugs and their people.
Hello, everyone, thank you for your sweet words. Well all is well here in the Compton house. We have FINALLY picked out a name for the "Dog" he will hereby be called "Takota" which means........."Friend of everyone". The pugs are both becoming QUITE fond of each other. We only had one very very small face off today & that was over Takota wanting the bed Shini was in & so he just went & plopped down on top of her in the bed and Shini got up & did this really quiet bark thing & then took off through the house & did the pug run LOL. We took them both for a nice walk tonight & it started out that I had Tokata and Mike had Shini, well that didn't last too far from the house as Shini was throwing a hissy fit that I was walking Takota, she was running circles around Mike & just was not walking her normal walking self on the leash, it was like a whirlwind. So we swapped off dogs & Little Miss Shini walked then like a princess on a leash (LOL she is too dang funny!!) All was well after that & both little puggy's enjoyed their walk. Right now they are both laying in their opposite beds, by that I mean Shini is in Takota bed & Takota is in Shni's bed, but oh well whatever floats their boats LOL! The neighbor lady brought her grandaughter over today to see & play w/Takota and they came in the door & Takota got out and flew like a bat out of you know where & Mike & the neighbor lady both ran after him & they finally caught him up in town at a friend of my family's car lot!!! We freaked out & panicked to say the least. Then later my son came by after he had stopped at our LITTLE town's cafe & had brought & bought Takota a baked chicken sandwich & tater wedges, said he felt that Takota needed fattening up! LOL (Takota looks great in his pics, his broad chest makes one think he is very plump & healthy.) But in reality we can see Takota's ribs & he is VERY under weight. So of course he got the meal out of the carton it came in & sat down & fed both Shini & Takota the meal, Takota got more which he needs, Shini does not need any more weight. Both dogs were very happy & Takota now has a new best friend. Before my son got here Mike had takin Takota out to potty on a leash (no doubt :) & when my son got here Mike went ahead & took Shini out to no avail, she was too excited that her buddy Jerell (my son) was here & only pulled & pulled to get back in the house before Takota got all of Jerell;s attentions. Shini loves my son to pieces!!!! Takota LOVES to ride in the car & like Pug Chicks foster is a pure gentleman when riding. You all I cannot tell you how much we are loving this little fellow. We went shopping for him today & we were standing in Wal-Mart in the pet section & I just got overwhelmed w/love for him, I had tears in my eyes and held back a cry. I wish everyone of you's could have the chance to meet him. He is unbelievable!! And as we all know, pugs love all of the family , but they kind of have their very favorite person. Well............................Takota is Mike's dog!! I can walk through the house & sometimes Takota will follow me, sometimes he doesn't. But now Mike can walk through the house & sweet little Takota is at his heels wherever he goes. He is so fascinated with Mike!!!! And of course Mike is on cloud nine here! He calls him his "Little Buddy" Takota sometimes doesn't even know Shini & are in the house. He is ALL about Mike! So I figured it out today, Mike is layed back & mellow & so is Takota. Shini & I on the other hand are both a hyper sort. LOL Oh & I almost forgot!!!...............When my son was leaving today, we are so used to Shini, if she gets out when someone comes or goes, she will just come right back in the house. But they had told us that Takota if he gets out he takes off. Well once again....................Takota darted out the door, my son & Mike took out after him & Takota stopped for one brief second to whiz on a bush down the street & my son swooped him up to safety! LOLOL So sometimes around the house we will let Shini go without her collar as she never runs off. But we made the decision from here on out that Takota will ALWAYS have his harness or collar on at all times!! I mean when they said he will run........................they literally meant he WILL run!!!!! Oh & about the doggy diaper bag thing Pug Chick, yes when we got Shini we bought her a diaper bag. It goes with us in the car it has everything we need in it in any emergency LOL! We even have baby wipes & Q-tips to clean her wrinkles or ears..............just in case LOL. We even have a small bottle of Johnson's baby powder in there as sometimes when we are out & decide to stop & visit someone and Shini smells like a dog, we douse a little powder on her & she smells wonderful. LOL I know, I know we have done gone pug nuts! LOL I think it is where I have had Empty Nest Syndrome since my kids left home, & this pug thing helps me get by I guess LOL. These pugs are our lives here. Mike is a father but he too has empty nest syndrome, we both are so lost. But as I said these pugs are a true blessing for us. We have a purpose again in life & the pugs benefit greatly from it and so do we. LOL These pugs are so very spoiled rotten in our home! But we & I believe they love it. We have spoiled Shini so bad, and our new little guy Takota is getting just as spoiled, but hey why not. I am gonna be honest with you all, when we were getting Takota we wondered if we could ever love him like we do Shini. Well that lasted until about 15 minutes after meeting him. We took Shini to meet him & spent time w/him & they got along fine and the lady had asked us if we decided Takota was a match, would we be taking him home w/us that day. LOLOL . We told her yes. We were hoping she was okay with us adopting him as she was a snooty looking woman but her personality was awesome, she was such a nice lady. We are sure happy campers right now w/our pugs. By the way right now we are in our 2 bedroom travel trailer at the camp site with these two. LOL But it is going great!! And glad when we bought the travel trailor we opted for the 35 ft, 2 bedroom one. Room for us to have our two baby pugs along with us. And Di, I think it was you that commented on one of the pics about Takota's hair will look better once we get the flea thing cleared up. We were wondering today if that is why his fur looked so horrible. It is VERY VERY course & dull looking. Shini's hair is sooooo..... soft. It was good to hear you say that, gave us much hope. We were wondering also if that was normal for fawn pugs. We bought him a good puppy food today in hopes that may help him get some good vitamins in him & help him put on some weight. Okay, well, now that I have written a book (LOL) I guess I will leave you's now knowing that both pugs are in the beds snoring loudly. lol. Hope everyone has a great day with your pugs. _Mike, Cher, Shini & Takota...................The End :)
