Oh, Canada!

Our Home and Puggie Land…


NEVER let it be said that The Pug isn’t patriotic.

Happy Canada Day, everyone! 146 years young!

The Pug Posse

So – where were we again? Oh, yes. Pugs!

As I was saying, hanging out with the Pug Posse is a treat for Lola Pug, but it was a special treat for me this time around, because there has been a new addition to the group…



Now you might not be able to see it when she’s in a solo photo, looking all epic and all, but Jo is what I refer to as my Achilles heel … my Kryptonite. She is a wee black pug puppy.

Perhaps sitting against her foster-sister, Truly, will help her seduce you into her tiny, saucy world….


Now who, you might ask, is Truly? This gorgeous girl is yet another poster child for why potential families should never shy away from dogs with “disabilities”.

Just as with Truly’s other foster-sister, Hazel, you would never really know that she had vision problems. She is just as sassy, playful and as loving as any other pug (more so, in Truly’s case, in fact), and BOY can she be a cheeseball. She *is* a pug, after all.


Rounding out the Pug Posse is the grand gentleman of pugs. Tank. Known in the rescue world as a “foster failure”, Tank managed to charm and wiggle his way into his foster family’s hearts until the thought of life without him became unfathomable. He has presided with great style (and patience), over the Pug Posse ever since his formal adoption almost five years ago.


And no visit is complete without some time with Miss Hazel. After running around like a complete maniac with the other pugs, she needed to recharge her solar panels, and so chose the *hottest* sunbeam in the garden to go and bathe in.

Keeping it classy, Hazel Bean.


So where was Lola Pug in all of this pugginess?

Well. Sitting in the grass, trying to convince me that she had no reason to be communing with these four-legged, hairy creatures, and whyohwhyohwhy couldn’t we just go home where she could be dignified and regal in peace?


Seriously, pug. That look you’re shooting me is just convincing me we need to do this more often.

And speaking of looks … I’d keep your eye on that little one. She’s got your attitude written all over her.

Pug Summer Picnic

I guess it’s only fair that while we eat picnic sushi, the pug has a little snack from the bountiful salad bar that is the lawn, yes?

Hey, sweetie – you got a little something … just there … right there …

Oh, nevermind.

Going for a Walk

The youngest member of Lola’s human family seems to have taken quite a shine to her.

While I think it’s *fantastic* – too many parents teach their kids to be afraid of dogs, so when a real dog loving child comes along, I’m all over it – I’m not sure that Lola is quite feeling the love….

Yah. I’ll rescue you in a minute, baby. I’m kind of enjoying this right now.

Bocce Pug

There’s nothing quite as relaxing as playing a civilised game of bocce on a summer weekend.

It would appear that The Pug agrees.

Oh, pug…please don’t move that little ball…I was actually WINNING, you see…

…it’s not your squeakie ball, sweetie, it’s…


Wildlife on the bocce court!

Time for a refill, I suppose.

Miss Emma (or The Trouble with Terriers)

Miss Emma is part of Lola’s much loved extended family.

The Pug does not actually acknowledge Emma’s existence, which is rather a shame, as you can see how beautiful and playful she is…

…all she wants to do is play and chase and be loved and play some more and did I mention play?

Poor Emma. (we say that a lot about her, actually)

Deep down, the pug loves you. Deep, deep down.

Well. Okay. WE love you, dear girl.

Ed. Note: It is next to impossible to get a decent shot of Lola and Emma together, as Lola appears to be magnetically repelled from terriers in all forms (except the Bostonian kind). This doesn’t mean that we won’t keep trying.

Spring Picnic

There is nothing dreamier than sitting in a garden on a gorgeous, warm spring day, surrounded by flowers and trees and green.

The Pug loves nature, too. One of her favourite warm-weather activities is sitting on the grass in the sunshine.

I know…how does she find the energy? She’s unstoppable, I tell you.

She also loves flowers. She often sniffs them…before she stomps on them. But she was already lying down here…

…I really should have learned from the Easter chickens, no?


I can dress you up, pug….

Goths in the Summer

But are they actually Goth, or are they more … Avril?

Small black pug sits smirking in a green, sunlit field while young people with dyed red and black hair sit off in the distance

Yah, pug. I’m smirking, too.

Guess that means we’re both getting rather long in the tooth.
