To mark Lola Pug’s final full day on Bowen Island (at least on this trip), we took the pugs on a lovely, chilly beach walk, then bundled them up into the car to get a few provisions in town before heading home to warm up.
Never one to be outwardly impressed with much of anything, Lola Pug really takes all of her adventures in stride.
A quick stop off at my new favourite place on the Island…
…and we were all ready to head home. Even Miss Roxy was pining for a nap.
And I do think that Lola Pug was dreaming of warmer, drier places as she watched the goings on.
Now, Roxy’s people have something very special in their home that is a *perfect* way to warm up and relax after a winter adventure, and I couldn’t wait to get back to the house to try it out.
In our last post, I asked how YOU like to warm up, and both Hailey and Zaphod and our Southern Fried Pugs friends said that warming up by a fire (with bonus marshmallows) are their favourite things to do…but at Hacienda RoxSea, there is this amazing little nook that I had been ACHING to jump into.
This thing on the left isn’t a painting on the wall…and it’s not exactly a room….
…it’s an honest to goodness sleeping nook!
Bedstedes are Dutch, and I think they might just be the best thing I’ve ever seen in a house. THANK YOU, NETHERLANDS!
The pugs wholeheartedly agreed with me. Although that kind of makes sense, as it was the Dutch who first brought pugs over to Europe, and…wait…were bedstedes made specifically FOR cuddling with pugs? Or maybe just for pugs, themselves.
They might well have been, because Lola wasn’t too thrilled at the prospect of me invading her private mattress room.
With a little bit of rearranging, and the addition of a blanket along with the lovely Roxy…
…and maybe a little bit of wool for me to play with, we all settled in for a most excellent coze.
The lure of the cozy bedstede is so powerful, that Roxy’s Dad decided to join us, and we had a glorious time reading books, cuddling the pugs, chatting away and warming up.
Well. Some of us had a glorious time.
Oh, Lola, sharing isn’t *that* miserable, is it?
I have an awful lot to live up to now, as I believe I will now be expected to construct a bedstede at Casa Lola on our return. But only big enough for *one* pug, right, Lola Bean?
But we have a few more adventures to go on before we can rest at home, little one.
Stay tuned – The Pug is on the move!
