I’m So Excited that I Just Can’t Hide It!


Hi Everyone…

I had to write Mason’s blog today because he is so cranky and out of sorts with everyone. I am sure it will pass, but you know how he hates change of any kind (unless it is a new food being added to his diet!), and Grandma and Grandpa’s new pug, Cecily, has really put him in a funk. I, however, am beside myself with excitement and cannot wait to meet my new sister friend. I know from Mom that she is a beautiful black pug who has had two litters of puppies and that she was shown a few times. She sounds so sweet and fun that I can hardly wait. I feel sad for her because she has always lived with lots of pugs and has never been the only dog until now. I think Mason and I need to welcome her into our family but Mason is being a brat about it. You know how he was (and still is sometimes) about my coming into his life. He is not a typical pug who likes lots of friends around, sharing his space and playing with him. He can be a real pill about that and just last week he went for me when I was licking Mom’s hand while we were sitting on the couch. He tolerates me up to a point and then he just can’t seem to control himself. I think he needs anger management.

I am really anxious to meet this new pug and I already think we are going to be great friends. Mason just mutters to himself about her. “She’s probably as stupid as Lizzie, She’s probably going to steal all of my food, She’s probably going to sniff my butt and then want to cuddle with me, She probably thinks she’s the boss of Grandma and Grandpa, She’s probably found all of my old hiding places in the woods.” He can go on for hours this way until I want to bite him! Well, I wouldn’t bite him but sometimes I really want to.

So, Cecily, welcome to our family! I will be your friend even if Mason doesn’t want to right away. Be patient and you’ll see…he’ll come around. His bark is much fiercer than his bite. See you Wednesday night!


Your loving sister/cousin/friend,


Here she is in Grandma's office. I love her already!

Look at how sweet she is! Grandma says she has to learn how to photograph black since it is harder than fawn.

Pugs Sniffing Butts – The Smart Choice

I feel compelled to address a subject near and dear to the heart of every pug (and every other breed of dog, I wager) and that is the act of sniffing another dog’s butt. I am truly sorry, dear reader, if I am offending any of you by broaching this subject, but it is one of our most basic functions.

 You humans look at facial expressions, smiles, teeth, figure, hair, eyes, and practically every other human feature, and then listen to voice intonation, accent, and volume in order to form an opinion about a person. You decide if he/she is friendly, attractive, interesting, smart, nasty, or unappealing – the entire gamut of assessments – and finally, you shake hands. We of the canine species, however, sniff one another’s butts. You would be amazed and shocked by how much we discover in that sniff…an entire personality DNA lies within that tiny orifice! We know in an instant if this is a potential buddy, love interest, enemy, or threat. And guess what else? We are never wrong.

 More often than not, you humans form the wrong first impressions and waste a lot of time by doing the visual or auditory scan. Instead, if you would just take a few seconds to sniff his/her butt, your impressions would be point on.

 Take it from your pug spokesman, butt sniffing is not something to be eschewed, but rather, embraced. We’ve been doing this since the dawn of time, and it eliminates most of the guesswork when choosing friends.

 Respectfully submitted,
