Travelling Pug

Lola Pug and I are active and happy travellers, but we’ve been grounded for a while due to a few LP-related medical questions we’ve been looking to answer.

So it was a great celebration when Lola Pug’s veterinarian, Dr. Deji, gave her the okay to FINALLY fly again. To mark the occasion, Dr. Liver Hands gave LP a well deserved treat.

…and I immediately logged into my computer to book our first flight in months.

Lola Pug has seen way too many Valentino documentaries, so her idea of a flight that is appropriate to her status is something like this…

…but her reality is somewhat less glamorous….

The Pug has always been a great traveller, and this was a short flight, so it wasn’t long before we were peeing on foreign foliage, and leaving little calling cards for friends we hadn’t yet met.

And where have we ended up, you might ask?

Well. Somewhere with PUGS, of course!

Well, HELLO, Donald! We’re happy to see you, too!

Donald’s family (Angel Payton’s people) and I have been friends for ages, but this was our first time meeting Donald and his amazing sister, Daisy in person.  D&D were adopted from PugHearts of Houston a couple of years ago, and they quickly wormed their way into my heart through photos and videos. I also had a sneaking suspicion that Daisy and Lola Pug were soul sisters (but more on that later).

Daisy and Donald welcomed us into their Pugmobile and we were whisked away for a very exciting first day in their forever hometown.

Houston?

Nope.

Think…windier.

We boarded a (PUG FRIENDLY!) boat, and Lola Pug settled in for a fun and educational tour of our home for the next few days.

Not bad, eh?

…real life Gotham, anyone?

Now, Donald had been on this particular tour before, so the gorgeous scenery didn’t impress him so much.

…maybe he’s a bit nearsighted…

…because even the Little Princess was impressed.

But the tour eventually came to an end, and we traded history and waterways…

…for…history and carnivals….

Hey, pugs! You up for a day on the town?

I’ll call that as an affirmative vote, so let’s gather up our city trekking gear, and we’ll see you all in the next blog post!
