Eddie the Pug

A few weeks ago, we started taking Sid to the off-leash area of Prospect Park in the mornings before we started work. While we haven’t been religious about it, we’ve been getting out there at least a few times a week.

Sid just loves it so much. It’s hard to avoid feeling guilty when we sleep in too late, or start our walk and then turn around the corner instead of crossing the street to the park. Oh yes, he knows the route by heart.

Anyway, he’s met many new furry friends at the park, and one in particular is Eddie the pug. Meet Eddie:

Eddie is a very social pug (he even has his own facebook page!) and he and Sid hit it off really well as they share mutual interests in eating treats, high-speed dog chasing, and pug-rent manipulation tactics.

Like Sid, Eddie’s a very athletic pug and is always ready for playtime, or running laps around the park. They actually obtain some pretty high speeds for pugs. So fast, in fact, that I was unable to get a good photo of them careening around the long meadow.

Eddie is still young and impressionable so Sid has been trying to impart the ancient methods of treat-obtaining to him. Sid’s technique involves flying at top speed from person to person at the park, not unlike a bee going from flower to flower, until he finds the jackpot: some poor unsuspecting sucker with a baggie full of treats and a weakness for adorable smooshed faces.

    Sid, I think your pug-rents are super cool for taking you to the park before work! And it does look like so much fun! So nice of you to teat Eddie the keys to a successful pug life. The last pic of you two is my favorite. Hope you get to go to the park this weekend!

    PS. Should be “teach Eddie”…I don’t know what “teat Eddie” would be.

    Hi Sid,
    Marshmallow here… I wish I can play with you and run at the park free. Mom said we live in the same State but still too far. Eddie is sure lucky to have you mentoring him. I could learn so much from you. Mochi and Macho are so boring. And they hog all the treats.

    I have NEVER been off leash in the open. My Mommys worry (and rightfully so) that I will run too far and get in trouble because I do not listen when they call me back. Sigh. I guess I should work on that. You look so happy running free like that.
    Love Noodles

    Payton -> It sure is fun. Besides Sid having a blast, he also burns off some steam so he’s relaxed when we get back home (and we can actually get some work done!).

    Marshmallow -> Good to hear from you! Usually it seems like Mochi gets to do all the typing. Just keep following the blog and you’ll get the inside scoop on Sid’s “life lessons” (i.e. how to manipulate humans into giving you their food).

    Noodles -> the trick to preventing pug-dashing is to keep a hefty supply of treats hidden in a pocket. While Sid will often ignore his name, he always runs back to us when we say “Find It!” because he knows he might get a treat. Sometimes I know he intentially runs off a bit, just so we’ll have to yell to get him back because that = treat. Evil genius I tell ya.

    My word is “snack” When they yell out snack we all come running
