Lola Pug’s Favourite Game

A while ago, I took up crochet, just for fun, and I am both flattered and thrilled that one of LP’s favourite toys is the squeaky ball I made for her.


Now, one of HRH’s favourite games actually does involve this ball – or one of her other soft and squeaky toys. The things that really matter in this game are that the toy is soft, that it squeaks, that she can fit a good portion of it into her mouth and – most important of all – that she has it, and that you want it. That you REALLY want it….

Caveat time! In some dogs, this wouldn’t be playing at all, it would be a clear warning to STAY AWAY, so please do not play this at home, especially if your pooch has any issues with resource guarding. Here at Casa Lola, we have a deep understanding of the ways of THIS pug, and trust me when I say, if I don’t play this game with Her Highness when she asks, she gets very sad and sulky for a remarkably long time.

Thankfully, today is not a sulking kind of day.

Let’s see that ball, Pug… can I have some? Can you share with me? Just a little bit….

Winter Socks

When it’s cold and wet outside, one of the small comforts I enjoy is putting on a warm, dry pair of socks.

The Pug thinks that socks are quite wonderful, as well, but for slightly different reasons….


There are very few times when I won’t take up the chase and try to get my sock back after she steals one off my foot…


…it’s just too much fun to play this game with her.

I mean, if you can’t have fun and play when the opportunity presents itself, you’re really missing a major point of being alive, no?


And that’s kind of one of the reasons dogs are here. To remind us to stop, drop and play.

Now. About that sock, Pug. I think I’ll need a slightly … dryer one now.
