Happy Easter Pug!

We put some tasty treats in a basket for Nickie to find this morning, but she wasn’t quite sure what to make of it. The springy Easter grass must have been deterring her from grabbing her treats. Eventually we were able to coax her into taking a few cookies from the basket, and now she’s happily napping after her snack. We hope everyone has a very happy Easter!

Weekend of Treats!

We had a tasty breakfast this morning (bacon included) and are enjoying a lovely spring day. We are pretty sure that diets don’t apply to weekends, and it’s a good thing because if they did, we’d be in trouble.  :)

Friday Pizza Party Pug

We’re so excited that it is Friday! Not only is it Friday, but it’s going to be a pizza party Friday at our house. We know that Nickie isn’t the only pug who gets excited about pizza parties. Check out our friend Homer Jay Pug on his awesome pizza bed!

Pugs on Canvas

John Emms was an English painter between 1841 and 1912 who created this painting called Pugs. He actually has a few well-known paintings of pugs, and must have been quite the avid pug-lover. We’re thinking we may need to spice up our wall decor at home with more pug art!

Pug Throne

We love this vintage picture of a pug that appears to be posing on its throne. This photo is featured in the Poole Collection of the National Library of Ireland, and it is believed to have been taken around 1900. I guess that means they were treating their pugs like princes and princesses even back then.

Quality Time Outdoors

We were trying to spend some quality time out on the patio with Nickie this morning, but after a brief romp around the yard, she was ready to go back inside and take a nap. It looks like she is not in the mood for enjoying nature this morning. Maybe we’ll try again this afternoon.

Pug Portrait

This charming portrait of a pug was created by English artist William H. Hopkins in 1880. We don’t think there is any way that Nickie would stand still enough for a portrait, unless she was painted while sleeping.
