Wally Melon


This is me and my tasty new friend, WALLY MELON!
He has really really good TASTE as well as being a CRISP dresser.


HeeHee

So occasionally MY MOMMYS give me Wally Melon for dessert. Not a lot, maybe a small slice or two. Something about excessive GAS and the TROTS keeps them from letting me indulge too much. But I tell ya, a little goes a long way when it comes to WALLY MELON. If I cut this open, you would see a bright red inside just brimming with juiciness. Wally Melons are largely water, after all.

Oh, and WALLY MELON likes to be in the fridge so the innards become really cold and crunchy. On a hot day . . . MWAH!!!!

And WALLY MELON even likes to be frozen into cubes or pops which can make a really really hot day a lot more tolerable to us FLAT FACE pugs.

Be sure and talk to your 'rents about WALLY MELON visiting your house soon.

BBQ'd EVERYthing

It was really hot in the South Bay all weekend. So hot that my trips outside were infrequent and short, except in the early morning and late night when it was breezy and a little cooler.

When it came time for meal preparation, no one wanted to stand in the kitchen and cook a meal. Even making a salad was tiring and hot work. So of course, it was time to whip out the BBQ. Well, actually this time we used the firepit.

Roasted HOT DOGS (by the way, I was ASSURED by my Mommy that NO DOG is used in the preparation of HOT DOGS. . . oh, and in our house only SOY BEANS were made to suffer) and VEGGIES are the BEST ever. I also had some WALLY MELON and a few green beans.

Then it was time for dessert . . . OMP! My mouth is watering just remembering it! We roasted MARSHMALLOWS over the waning fire! That was the best ever.

It turned out to be the best meal ever and I can't wait for the next HOT weekend.

HOWzit Friday


Happy Friday EVERYPUGGY (and others)

First of all - to answer all the questions about my JUMPING photo. It is an animated GIF. If you have Photoshop there is an app for it. BUT Mommy does not have PHOTOSHOP (only PS Elements) so she couldn't do it. She watched a tutorial about how to make an animated GIF, though. But I am getting off track. So she GOOGLED Animated GIF (she knew WHAT she wanted, just not how to do it) and found Picasion.

Picasion allows you to download a series of photos, choose speed and special effects, and then it adds the animation. It is pretty easy and pretty cool. I think with more practice Mommy can make an even BETTER animation. She also took a photo and rotated & flipped it different ways. She saved each one so she had a series of six photos for the animation.

I decided to do a SHOUT OUT FRIDAY. Just cuz. Sometimes I come across something and it makes me wanna SHOUT. But I don't because I get PENNED when I bark a lot. So I came up with this idea to do some VIRTUAL SHOUT OUTS via Blogville. Let's see if it works.

The BLOGVILLE OLYMPICS is almost upon us. I would like to give a shout-out to the Mayor of Blogville himself, Frankie Furter, for his tireless efforts to make these games a reality.

Also, I want to give a shout-out to all the events managers because without events - well we wouldn't have an OLYMPICS, would we?

I have entered TWO events: Corbin's Neighborhood Walk and Benny&Lily's BeachBall Game. I am having so much fun training and preparing. I think I might even get an extra MEAL for my efforts!

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . What's that Mommy? No EXTRA MEAL for me cuz I am WHAT?????? Oh! The indignity!!!!!

My next shout-out goes to all of the BLOGVILLE and FACEBOOK PAWrents who have recently come to the RESCUE of some very unfortunate PUGGIES! Your selflessness and willingness to answer the call make me wanna JUMP all over you and shower you with KISSES! I am amazed and overwhelmed by your actions.

Finally I wanna SHOUT-OUT to my FURiends who are a little under the weather lately - Indy, Lola, Sluggo, Sid . . . So many of you. I am SHOUTING OUT a lot of JUJU to all of you in hopes that you feel better soon.

Happy Friday EVERYPUGGY (and others)

But I DIGRESS






I was home alone for A LONG TIME yesterday. So in addition to the TWO piles and river I left for Mommys to clean up (Just how long is a PUG supposed to HOLD it???), I hacked into the computer and spent the day watching YOUTUBE videos.

I love this VIDEO.
Think I could be a STAR???

EEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! Bugs!




Scratch, scratch, scratch . . .

This is the horrible sound of a dog with fleas and ticks! These little critter are uncomfortable AND unhealthy for dogs. They are especially common on pets this time of year because like eFURRYbody else, we spend a lot more time outdoors (where these critters like to hang out). And lets not rule out mosquitoes as antogonists in this drama.

BUGS can cause the following illness in dogs and cats of all types:


 Copied from WEBMD.com - Probably the most common thing is, when these fleas are feeding, they’re injecting saliva into the skin. These salivary proteins are often allergenic and animals end up with allergy. The most common skin disease of dogs and cats is what’s called flea allergy dermatitis, where they bite and scratch and lose their hair.  It can take only a few fleas for this allergy to become a problem.
If you have a lot of fleas, since they’re blood-sucking insects, especially if you have puppies, pets can become anemic and even die with heavy infestations. Fleas also commonly transmit tapeworms to our pets, at least one species.
With ticks, there are a dozen to 15 or more tick-transmitted diseases that our pets get from ticks. There’s Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tularemia,ehrlichiosis, and more. Many of these diseases can kill pets.

Take control of the situation. My Mommys bathe me regularly and use a flea and tick preventative every month. She switches kinds every 3-4 months because the CLARK Pest Control told her the bugs get too used to the pesticide if you use it all the time. Mommys also embarrass me by checking my private regions, between my foot pads, around my tail base and in my ears for signs of fleas and ticks. Oh, and our yard is taken care of as well. Tall grasses - eliminated (Auntie T does this and does this so well). Ants, Skeeters, Fleas say bye-bye when Mr. Clark shows up with his enviro-friendly but bug deadly spray.

I am PAWticipating in Bunk's Flea and Tick contest. Check it out . . .

SAY GOODBYE TO FLEAS AND TICKS! ENTER TO WIN A $50 GIFT CARD

Tuni was a special pug to all of us here in Blogville; but to none moreso than WINSTON WILBUR. He lost his love when Tuni crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

I understand a picture is worth a THOUSAND words, so for my tribute to my dear dear FURiend TUNI I am offering MANY THOUSAND words. Here goes

My MANY Beds . . . HEY! What's Sunshine the Cat doing here!!!


Tuni, I miss you and will always hold you dear in my BIG lil' PUG heart. Your FURiend Noodles.

Birthday PAWty Cubed

AS I was telling you, I awoke quite early in the morning on the day of my PAWty. I didn't get into trouble  because it was, as I said, MY BIRTHDAY!!! I am THREE - 3 - III years old now. I feel so mature.

SO I ate breakfast and went outside for a while to enjoy the absolutely gorgeous weather. Remember, my birthday is July 4 - so EVERYbody and doggy and kitty and birdy was home for my special day. I got so so so many PATS, CHIN CHUCKLES, HUGS, and TREATS! It was very nice to be treated like the PRINCESS that we all know I am.

MY Birthday day went on like that. And it was nice enough that Mommy #1 took me out for a couple of walks around the neighborhood. The neighborhood was bustling on July 4 like it NEVER is. It seemed like EVERYone was home and busy fixing their houses up for celebrations. I wondered how they all knew it was MY BIRTHDAY. OMP, how was I gonna be able to make an appearance at ALL of these PAWties? OMP, OMP!


WHEN we got back to the house I was SURPRISED again by the house being decorated and the smells of special FOOD being made! All for MOI??? There was also a table of PRESENTS but Mommy #2 said I couldn't even SNIFF those until after the BBQ dinner they were planning.

I am not sure if you have ever had BBQ but I am telling you it is DIVINE!!!! My Mommys are VEGheads but they BBQ the most delicious VEGGIES ever. And then they add them to the kibble I usually eat - well that meal was PURE HEAVEN. I had zucchini, corn, tofu, cantaloupe, and carrots added to my food. DROOL!!!

THE GOODIES did not stop there. I had a special cake made just for me, too. It was BANANA and PEANUT BUTTER. Mommy added some WHIPPING CREAMS on top too cuz she said I was her
 SPECIAL FUR BABY!

I woke up really early that day but I DIDN'T get in trouble or anything cuz it was MY BIRTHDAY. Then I got the yummiest breakfast ever from my Mommy #2. Let me just say it included some PEANUT BUTTER and YOGURT. I think I am still licking my LIPS when I sleep cuz it was THAT YUMMY.

Birthday-on-the-Horizon Contest



My dear friends Mochi, Macho, and Marshmallow have a GRRRRR8 idea for a

BIRTHDAY-ON-THE-HORIZON Contest

It is called Name that Sushi!


Is that wunnerful or what? So here are the rules

  1. Create a NEVER BEEN HEARD BEFORE name for my Noodles Roll
  2. You cannot use Noodles Sushi, Sushi Noodles or Noodles Roll since I have used all three already
  3. Entries MUST be in by Midnight July 5, 2012
  4. One entry per PET (so Slimmer Pugs and Pug Posse you get multiple entries)
  5. Cats are also welcome to enter the contest . . . and non-pugs, by all means . . .
  6. Leave your entry in the COMMENT box
The winner (there will be just one) will be chosen by RANDOMIZER because my Mommys are incapable of agreeing (as you know Mommy #1 is 13 now, a teen. Enough said).

Have fun. . . . 

Oh, and Mochi, Macho and Marshmallow, you have already earned a prize for the GRRRRR8 idea.

Sushi Noodles



Have you ever tried SUSHI? I did for the first time this weekend. I cannot imagine why MY Mommys kept such a wonderful secret from me! It was moist and succulent. Just the kind of food a PUG likes.
As if there is some food a PUG does NOT like!
Anyhoooo
My Mommy #2 was making 3 kinds of SUSHI:

  • Inarizushi which looks like a canvas bag with rice in it
  • Kappa maki which is rice stuffed with cucumber and wrapped in seaweed
  • Avocado sushi which is like the kappa but avocado rather than cucumber
First Mommy let me try the seaweed. YUM YUM YUM! It melted in my mouth spreading tasty awesomeness all over. Then she let me have some cucumber which I have had before but I still like it very much. This was fresh fresh fresh and was so sweet and juicy. THEN Mommy made me a really tiny kappa maki just for me! Oh my PUG! It was so yummy. The texture was smooth but grainy (from the rice) and crunchy (from the cuke). I begged and begged for more but Mommy cut me off at one. She wanted to make sure I could handle it before she let me have more. 

Know what? I totally did handle it! No adverse reaction at all except for occasional FARTS. I do those anyhoo so who's to say if the SUSHI caused it?

The moral of my story is - if you haven't tried SUSHI yet, tell your rents you totally wanna and to get you some STAT!
