Nickie is ready for a long Labor Day weekend of fun! She’s kicking it off early with a happy reunion with her freshly laundered dog bed and all her fuzzy friends. Pugs definitely know how to party!
We’re playing the waiting game this morning, and Nickie is eagerly awaiting the return of her fluffy dog bed from the depths of our basement laundry room. Nickie and her friends are a little sad to be snuggling on a towel for now, but there will definitely be a celebration soon when her favorite napping spot is all fresh and clean!
Nickie loves going for rides in the car, and we love bringing her along as a travel companion for trips to the park, the pet store, and other adventures. Car rides to the vet’s office are always bittersweet. Nickie has a fantastic time until the dreaded building comes into sight, then she’s wishing she stayed home. Shhh… don’t tell her we’re on our way to the V-E-T for a checkup!
Have you noticed that some mornings require a little extra time for both you and your furry friend to really get rolling? Today might be one of those days.
Just like their favorite people, pugs are also creatures of habit. Our pug Nickie spends every morning playing with her bacon-flavored bone toy (we’re pretty sure it’s her favorite). Once she’s done for the morning, she’ll ignore the toy for the rest of the day until the next morning. This is a rare instance where we found her combining both of her favorite morning activities – stretching and chewing on her bone!
We’re looking forward to a break in the summer heat this week, and Nickie is definitely prepared for anything the change in weather could throw our way. :)
There are few things in the world (that are not food) that are as exciting to our pug Nickie as car rides. Even when we take her outside for a walk around the neighborhood, she often bolts straight to the car and stares at us expectantly. This pug was made for cruising.
Pugs are notorious for many quirky behaviors, and one of these is definitely their constant licking of just about anything they encounter. We were up bright and early this morning, and even though Nickie was still a bit groggy, she spent several minutes sprawled out licking her bed (and clutching her penguin for reasons unbeknownst to us) before finally giving in and drifting off to sleep.
