Punk Pug


Happy Halloween, fellow pugophiles! As you know, pugs and Halloween go together like fries and ketchup. Pablo has already had his share of treats–his reward for letting me take photos of him in costume.

April Showers


No, this isn’t an April Fools joke. The above contraption actually exists, and I need to get one for Pablo. As readers of this blog know, he’s never been one for inclement weather so a coat that keeps the raindrops out of his eyes is ideal for him.

The Push Pushi raincoat is just one of the many innovative pet products from the Global Pet Expo that was held in Orlando, Florida last month. If you’d like to see more super-cool ideas–an anxiety-reducing shirt anyone?–check out this New York Times article:

Saw this dressed-to-kill pug on LifeBuzz. The featured artist Yago Partal photoshopped a whole slew of animals in duds that capture their personalities in his Zoo Portraits series.

And the Winner Is…


And the frog wins it! The votes have been tallied with 13 for the frog and 10 for the caterpillar. Pablo will greet the trick-or-treaters who traipse to our door in his frog costume. Maybe he will meet a princess who will kiss him and turn him back into the prince of pugs.

Thanks to all who voted!!!

Please Vote!

We have a tough decision to make in the next few days and I’d like my readers’ help. PetSmart was having a fantastic sale on Halloween costumes–75 percent off!–and so I bought two. (I would have bought more, but K was with me and couldn’t understand why I was buying even two. Men!)

Pablo graciously modeled both–the gayly colored caterpillar and the more subdued frog. Which will it be for Halloween? Whichever costume gets the most votes decides the matter. Cast your ballot today.

Pug Wrapped


What to do on a rainy day? Wind bubble wrap around your pug obviously. Pablo was a good sport (as usual), especially when smoked almonds were offered as enticement.

How do you torment, er, I mean, amuse your dog in inclement weather?

Pug in a Hat


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.
