Pugs in Hats

As you might recall, The Pug has benefited in small ways from my recently adopted crochet hobby (remember her crochet squeaky ball?), but you might also recall that she has lost some major dignity points because of it, as well….

I had an itch to pull out my hook and make something new, but Lola Pug already had a hat, so what to do? There simply MUST be some pugs out there who would LOVE a wee toque.

I met Peggy the pug while transporting her to her foster home, and I fell in love with her *immediately*. Mocha is also a rescue pug, and he’s been a beloved staple of our famous Pugalug gatherings for years. They are both absolutely darling creatures who are now brother and sister, and this made them prime candidates for some good old crochet loving.

I went and picked out some wool just for them, and got to work.

Quite a few hours (and many, many chuckles) later, I packaged their surprise gift up, along with an awesome card by Rainbow Pugs, and handed it all to the postman…

Mocha and Peggy’s Mum, Candace (who took these photos of her babies), was tickled with the surprise gift, but I’m not so sure it hit any balls out of the park as far as the pugs were concerned.

In fact, I might go so far as to say they might not give me any kisses when I see them next…

…aaaaand I might be reaching a bit even thinking they will ever let me get even remotely close to them again.

I fully expect the pugs will find some way to pay me back for this, but in the meantime, I shall smile and laugh and repeat these words in my head…

I would not like this
here or there.
I would not like it
anywhere.
I do not like
my winter hat.
I do not like it,
That is THAT!

Pom Pom Pug

Recently, a dear friend of mine took up knitting, mostly, as she confessed, to give her something to do so she “wouldn’t stab people” while waiting for appointments and meetings and friends who were running late. (*ahem*)

Although stabbing some people sounds like a lot of fun to me, in a hypothetical sense, of course, it would be a Bad Thing to do. The knitting thing seemed a bit intimidating, so I decided to teach myself how to crochet, instead.

And I hereby declare my first project to be a SUCCESS!

 

…I’ll bet that someone is sure regretting dancing on my face at 4:00am this morning to get me up to feed her.

Oh, this is just the beginning, Pug. This is just the beginning.

I might want to think about hiding my wool, though. Something in her look speaks of revenge.
