We woke Nickie up a little early this morning to go for a quick jog, but before we could even get her harness and leash on, she was snuggled up in her bed struggling to stay awake. Maybe early morning exercise is not for her.
We think the media has always recognized how adorable pugs are. Check out this centerfold engraving from Harper’s Weekly in 1878 entitled “Beauty and The Beast”. “Beast” must be referring to the angry black cat because that pug is beautiful. :)
As many know, it is tradition to wear the green of the Emerald Isle and shamrocks on St. Patrick’s Day. Shamrocks are a symbol of Ireland, and the word shamrock was derived from the Irish word for “little clover”. Interestingly, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with parades was a tradition started in America that has spread all over the world.
Today we are celebrating the luck o’ the Irish with a charming St. Patrick’s Day pug and his friend!

Nickie is excited to be wearing one of her favorite dresses this lovely Saturday morning. We think it’s the perfect attire for playtime and her mid-morning nap.
We love this painting called “Party Animal” by 20th century American artist Pamela Hall. That is a party that we would happily join.
Monday mornings always seem to be a little sluggish in our house, and this Monday morning after the Daylight Savings Time change is hitting particularly hard. It looks like Nickie could use that extra hour of sleep back just as much as we could.
Daylight Savings Time has arrived! We’re going through all the clocks this morning and rolling them forward an hour. With the clocks set forward and spring just around the corner, these pugs (Nickie included) are ready to spring forward into action!
Our Saturday is off to a slow start, but sometimes it’s nice to enjoy a lazy weekend morning with your pug. Nickie seems to be having fun, and we can worry about all those errands and to-do lists later this afternoon.
