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.

Godzilla Pug and Little Bee

I wrote a blog post about tiny Bradie on another blog today (click here to read it – there are more photos, too!), but I couldn’t resist featuring her on Lola Pug’s blog, as well.

Lola and I had the pleasure of hosting this divine, little creature for a couple of day-visits while her people were traveling. Having Bradie here was rather like having a benevolent little faerie in our home.

…the tongue slays me.

Lola, herself, is a petite creature, but Bradie is even tinier, weighing in at a mere 4 pounds. There aren’t too many canines out there who can make Lola look like the huge beast that she thinks she is.

Bradie hasn’t been paparazzi trained like The Pug, so it was with considerable effort that I managed to get a decent photo of the two of them side by side:

I realise now, of course, that I could have placed some marker beside them to illustrate exactly what levels of tininess we are talking about here, but we’re talking ankle height, my friends.

If it weren’t for Lola’s slight bitterness at having another canine in her space, I would have had to get an insulin shot.
