Florida Pug

So have you had time to take a guess at what Lola Pug got up to on her exciting trip to the land of palm trees and manatees?

When we last left her, HRH was rather happily soaking up some much needed vitamin D…

 

…but it wasn’t ALL about sunshine and relaxing.

Lola Pug was active and sprightly…

 

…she moved around the pool like a sunflower capturing the optimal sunshine angles…

 

…she went for exciting walks that involved a lot of exercise…

 

…she entertained friends and listened to what were clearly some thrilling discussions…

 

All in all, I think I had a very happy pug on my hands.

  

But even the best of things must come to an end. I broke the news to Lola Pug gently, just as her Auntie was giving her a post-yogurt skritch…

 

It’s time to go home, sweetie.

Our visit was short, but it was just what we needed to recharge our batteries and feel a bit of warmth on our skin before returning to the long winter ahead.

Bye bye, beautiful ocean and beaches and sunshine…

 

…and hello winter.

You might be cold and frosty, dear city, but it warms my heart to see you again.

 

I might be the only one who feels that way, though.

So I guess I had better get my thinking cap on and line up some new adventures before someone cries mutiny, and teaches herself how to book her own flights.

Wishing everyone in the North American snowbelt many warm, palm tree dreams this frosty weekend!

Now, little pug. What are we going to get up to next….

Snowbird Pug

When winter’s wrath hits town, little delicate greenhouse flowers like LP and I move out. Fast.

We’re both seasoned travellers, and I have to say, it’s a joy to be able to travel with the little Bean. (If you have any questions about travelling with your small dog, you should read a post I wrote for the Montreal Dog Blog a while back – right here.)

Goodbye Polar Vortex…

 

…hello SUNSHINE!

 

One of the first things I do when we land is throw our bags to the side and immediately drag our bare tootsies outside where there’s no snow, no salt and absolutely no need for socks.

The pool is a source of eternal fascination for Lola Pug, even though she *hates* getting wet, so we have to go out and check for fish…or manatees…or perhaps merpugs.

 

But the fascination with the pool soon gives way to The Pug’s favourite activity (after eating), and the basking begins.

 

…and basically doesn’t stop…

 

…until the sun goes down.

Happiness is, indeed, a warm puppy.

I don’t know how I’m going to break it to her that we can’t escape winter forever (although I’m seriously reconsidering those logistics), so we’ll just enjoy life right now as we should – one moment – and one glorious sunbeam – at a time.
