We were enjoying some fruit for breakfast, and Nickie couldn’t seem to take her eyes off us. I think she’s trying to convince us she hasn’t eaten breakfast yet, but we’re not falling for it!
Nickie had a good, sudsy scrub down before we put on her flea and tick solution for the month. As you can probably tell, she is not a fan of bath time, but she puts up with us for the treats that come afterwards. It’s a good thing pugs don’t need daily baths!
This adorable little guy looks like he could use some extra motivation to get moving this Monday morning, and so could we. This Monday seems a little happier now. :)

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!
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. :)

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!

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!
We bought supplies to make chocolate chip cookies as a treat for ourselves when we were at the grocery store this week, so this seemed particularly appropriate. Let’s just say it’s a good thing we don’t make cookies often, because we were just as excited about them as pugs are about their doggie treats.

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.
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.
