Puppies Gone Wild

Madelyn from La Petite Pancake is a pledge sister of mine and one of the funniest humans I know.  I got to meet Josie, her lovely little pug over Christmas and after spending an hour playing on the floor with her, had Marcus fearing that I was going to announce my readiness to take the Pet Plunge.  Luckily for him, I didn’t, but luckily for me, I’ve been able to live vicariously through Mads.


I purchased a pug puppy several months ago named Josie.  I dreamed of pugs for 6 years before my living situation finally deemed it acceptable for me to have a dog.  But I had no idea clubs existed for people as insane as me!  My boyfriend signed us up for a pug meet-up group in our area and each month the meet-ups bring more and more hilarity.

First, we took Josie to the beach.  She absolutely loved this until she got slammed by a wave.  Not a fan.

Doesn’t she look like the Doritos dog?

Here she plays with her half-sister, Willow.  Meaning they are sisters from the same mister.  And that mister is named “Brass-Knuckles”.

Josie is insane at the beach, like the way I get around buffets and pony kegs.  But that’s another story.

Anyway, there was another meet up scheduled last weekend at a place called “The Zoom Room”.  It’s a room filled with kooky teeter totters, hoops, etc.  The group rented it out for a few hours and the pugs went nuts!

Here’s Josie’s boyfriend, Bailey.

Ain’t he handsome???

Another crowd favorite, Lulu.

Tofu is on the left (he’s scrappy!) and Willow is on the right.

Pugs are only ever that attentive for food.  Om nom nom!

And finally, Josie for the photo-finish.

I think I am going to start training her to be a rescue dog.  I mean, she could easily grab kittens from burning buildings and save grown men from avalanches.  …right?

She has such a hard life. 😉


Are you a dog person or a cat person?

Does your pet have any strange habits or “favorite things?”

Spot, our Family Fang is a Siamese cat and his favorite food is Maple Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal.
