As readers of my second blog–The Cath in the Hat–know, I’m a big fan of Dr. Seuss. Saturday was the good doctor’s birthday and in honor of the occasion Pablo donned a Cat-in-the-Hat hat. He allowed it only because he knew a treat would soon be forthcoming–and it was.

We’ve been lucky. So far winter has been mild and Pablo hasn’t had to wear any of his dreaded sweaters or coats. But an overnight cold snap brought more than a touch of nip to the air so Pablo had to bundle up for his morning walk. While he’s as dashing as ever in his houndstooth sweater, I must confess that this year it’s a bit snug. I fear Pablo has put on an extra pound or two since last year. Perhaps it’s time to put him back on a diet–or buy him a bigger sweater.
They did it! The Giants won the Super Bowl! Although Pablo was whelped in CT, he is a Giants fan through and through since we lived in the NJ/NY area until recently. While football isn’t my thing, my dad was a big time Giants fan and I always had a fondness for the team. So on Sunday Pablo donned his Giants jersey and we watched the game with my CT sister, who was visiting. After the Giants lost their early lead, Pablo managed to keep his cool. He lost it at halftime. Caution to the wind, he went wild. (By sheer coincidence that was when the munchies came out.) By the time the Giants won the game in the final minutes, Pablo was snoring beside me, all tuckered out from cheering. Don’t worry, Pablo. Your team will be back next year.
K sent me a post from Neatorama about a new fad in China–people dyeing their pets to resemble wild animals, like the panda/dog (I think it’s a chow) in the above photo. Whatever floats your boat, right?
It got me wondering what wild animal Pablo resembles. Maybe if we dyed his fur gray, he’d look a bit like a Koala? What do you think?
I make no secret that my favorite movie of all time is The Wizard of Oz. What’s not to love, a scary witch, flying monkeys, and all those Munchkins. It’s almost a perfect movie. The only improvement? If a pug had been cast as Toto and not a Cairn terrier. (Don’t get me wrong, the dog that landed the role did a hell of a job.) Since that can never be, the above photo almost makes up for it.
Snapped on May 7th at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the photo shows two participants for Pug Rescue of San Diego County’s 20th Pug Party. This year’s theme was “The Emerald City: There’s No Place Like Home.” Very fitting, since the festival’s proceeds go to finding new homes for rescue pugs.
