Phoenixville Pablo Predicts Six More Weeks of Winter


Happy Groundpug Day! Yep, it’s that time of year again. And while Pablo didn’t see his friend the mailman on his walk today (translation: no treat), he did see his shadow loud and clear.* And we all know what that means–six more weeks of winter. Sorry, folks!

Some groundhog named Phil in Punxsutawney didn’t see his shadow, so the media is reporting that spring will come early.  Why the discrepancy? Well, it could be that poor Punxsutawney Phil was poked and prodded to leave his comfy den in the wee hours of the morning. Phoenixville Pablo didn’t venture outside until the much more civilized hour of  9 AM.

(*Full disclosure: The photo is from last year. I forgot my camera on this morning’s outing.)

    Was searching for my pug’s parents and came across one of your older postings. Reba was my pug who died on 10/13/12 after 13 1/2 years. Her dad was Sisnben’s Moonlancer also (mom was Ginger Texidor). Moonlancer was a WONDERFULLY healthy pug, apparently! I wish you many more years of happiness with yours.

    • Thanks for writing, Jennifer! And I’m sorry for your loss. I’m sure Reba (what a great name) had many happy years with you.

      In case you haven’t found her, there’s another of Moonlancer’s offspring on the internet. He was Wilma’s dad as well. You can check out her blog (Wilma the Pug) at
