Even though it it is still freezing out, and there’s no end in sight to the wintery weather, Nickie is still leaving little puffs of fur everywhere she goes in the house. I tried to explain to her that this is why I had to vacuum this morning, even though I know she doesn’t like the vacuum. This was her response. The puppy dog eyes plus head tilt combo were almost enough for me to put the vacuum away.
William Hogarth was an English artist and pug enthusiast that lived from 1697 to 1764. In 1745 he painted a self portrait with his adorable pug. He also included a pug in his 1730 painting entitled “A House of Cards”.
Nickie has some irrational fears of strange things like plastic bags and paper, but is actually pretty curious and unfazed when it comes to things like the vacuum that objectively seem much scarier. I think she’s interested enough in us opening a big pile of mail to want a better look, but not brave enough to come closer. You see, all that paper might be dangerous.
Our friend Prince the pug is 3 years old, and has mastered the art of making sweet puppy dog eyes. He is the proud winner of our January Pug of the Month contest hosted on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AboutPug
We’ll be crowning our new winner for February soon!
As another week comes to a close, we can’t wait for another pug-filled weekend.

English painter Charles Burton Barber (1845-1894) was renowned for his paintings of dogs. A number of his beautiful paintings feature pugs, including “Blonde and Brunette Pug”, “A Family of Pugs”, and “A Monster”. We think these pugs are simply beautiful!
On a cold and dreary Monday, sometimes all you need is just a little something shiny to brighten your day. Fortunately, our pug Nickie shares our enthusiasm for shiny things, so it was fun to adorn her with a super shimmery necklace.
Nickie has been inspired by all the Olympic action she’s been watching and is dreaming of snowboarding the slopes of Sochi.
