Sunbeam Dream Pug

This winter has been long and very cold – the coldest on record in Lola Pug’s hometown. The brutal cold means that The Pug and I haven’t really been able to get out and about on any adventures in our favourite place – the great outdoors.

But for all of the cold, it has been crisp, remarkably slush-free (dark and slushy winters are the WORST), and it has been bright. Oh, so bright. Sunshine almost every day.

But there comes a breaking point for everyone, and The Pug reached her’s about a month ago.

We tried everything to keep ourselves amused indoors. Squirrel log…stuffy toys…Karateo Dog…even indoor disk throwing, just to get a taste of remembrance of warmer days past.

But both Lola and I eventually slumped into a bit of a winter blargh, and a certain little pug became a master of her new, favourite winter sport…sunbeam basking.

First, you have to find a sunbeam…

…then you have to position yourself juuuuust so…

…and once you have achieved the optimal angle…let the basking begin….

A couple of days ago, I noticed that the temperature outside was reaching a less face-breaking level, so I woke a disbelieving HRH up from her sunbeam splendour…

…and carried her outside. I found a spot where the temperature and the sunbeams were juuuust right…

…and all was once again right with the world.

It feels a bit too early to welcome a new season in, so we will simply say YAY for warmer weather, and OH MY GOD, FINALLY we can go outside again.

Even Lola’s friend, Donald, has a bounce in his step with the warmer weather.

It is coming, my poppets. Spring – with all of it’s mud and glory – is just around the corner.

Get your raincoats ready!

…but we won’t focus on that just yet.

Time to find a sunbeam to dream in.

Until next week!

The Spring That Never Was… Lola Pug Edition

Hey, friends in the Northern Hemisphere – have you been having the kind of spring that we’ve been having here in Lola Pug’s hometown?

One day it’s warm and sunny and you don’t ever want to go inside…

Mama, it's PUG weather! Let's never go inside!

 

…and not 12 hours later, you’re back in your parka, wondering why and how anyone in their right mind would ever even think of going outside….

You. You are entirely responsible for this, and it will be remembered.

 

Despite my best attempts to convince her otherwise, it was quite clear that The Pug thought I was the cause of the weather change.

Needless to say, my attempts to convince her to go outside for our afternoon walk were not met with enthusiasm…

You are clearly completely out of your mind, woman.

 

…and so we wait for the few gorgeous, flower-filled days that Mother Nature will grant us until we descend headfirst into summer.

Springtime, we’re waiting for you!

In the meantime, LP and I have been having so many adventures, but simply no time to blog about them. We have a lot to catch up on, and we’re looking forward to sharing it all with you in the month ahead!

Snow Day Pug

When the weather gets cold and snowy, it takes effort to get out the door. Not only are we cozy inside, but the layers of clothing all add time to what generally winds up being a very perfunctory visit into the great outdoors.

Let the coaxing begin.

C’mon, baby. You need to pee.

Yes, Ducky – that white stuff is everywhere. It’s called *winter*.

Go, go, go!

Oh, look. It turns out you’re actually NOT one of those pugs made out of sugar!

Okay, okay. Privacy granted.

Hurry up, though. I only bothered to put a coat on you, Pug.
