Archive for September, 2014


This week is Sid’s Birthday week. His actually Birthday is on Saturday but he likes to extend the period of celebration – mostly because it means he gets spoiled with treats for a whole week instead of just one day.

I was browsing some potential Birthday items online the other night and I noticed Sid snooping over my shoulder. I told him that his Birthday presents are meant to be a surprise and he should cover up his eyes so he couldn’t see what I was ordering.

He bolted to his bed and ducked under his lion toy. I went back to the computer to load more things into my shopping cart.

About ten seconds later, out of the corner of my eye, I noticed this:


C’mon Sid! I said NO PEEKING!

Thlurpy Thursday





Oh, Hi. Sorry, did you say something? I was just busy working on my mid-day Wigzi. I think there’s still a smidge of peanut butter left inside.




The Waiting

Yoo hoo! Hello, up there! Yeah, it’s me.


Are we gonna go on this walk or what?! I’ve already got my harness on and I’ve been ready to go for like ten minutes.

Let’s step it up, man! Chop, chop!

September Strolling

September weather is the best for strolling.


Not too hot. Not too cold. Just right.


Anyone want to join us for a stroll in the park?


Goodnight, Dear Greta

I just wanted to do a little post about a friend of mine from the Idaho Pug Ranch that crossed over the rainbow bridge this week.


Dear Greta –

I never got a chance to meet you in the fur, but I knew you well from all the wonderful stories and photos you shared. I miss you very much. I will never forget your adorable smile and your passion for life and fun. Your family and all your internet friends and fans will also miss you greatly. Although your life was short in years, I know you lived every moment to the fullest. I will remember your great sense of humor, playfulness, and mischief. I think that’s why your mom sometimes refers you as “Naughty Greta”. I’ll send some pug love to your family because I know their hearts are hurting. Rest in peace, little one.

Pug Love,

Siddhartha Lamont

Tongue Tidbit


Can you see it?!

The past few weeks, I’ve noticed Sid sticks his tongue out more frequently. I’m not sure if it’s commentary on the fact that he is only provided two meals each day by his human (like every other dog!) or just a side-effect of his dental extractions this past Spring. It’s very subtle but not easily missed. I know the “tongue-out look” is pretty prevalant amongst pugs. If you recall, Sid’s lady-friend from Brooklyn, Timothy Buttons (affectionately known as T Buttz) had a pretty huge section of surplus tongue that was out pretty much all the time. I guess Sid is trying it out, but only taking baby steps.

Also, sorry that Sid and I have been MIA for the past couple weeks. I went on a week-long vacation while Sid stayed home and worked on his new nylabone. I’m not sure he missed me very much while I was gone as he was spoiled with lots of baby carrots the whole week. We hope to get back on track with more regular posts and comments.
