Pug Productivity

Hello furrriends!

It’s Sid here with you today! My Dad has been in work and project mode a lot lately which unfortunately means less pug adventure time.

Anyway, I’m not gonna be blue about it and decided instead to start using this extra “me” time to become a more productive pug.

I’ve been reading productivity books, organizing all my files, watching countless youtube videos on life hacks, and pretty much freeing up as much time possible in order to pursue my main life goal: OBTAIN ALL OF THE TREATS.

Based on what I’ve gathered thus far, the key is to eliminate all those unnecessary things in life — you know, like visits to the vet, daily walks, obeying commands from your human — in order to get what you want out of life. I feel like a brand new pug!

I’d tell you more about it but I just got an alert from my calendar that it’s time for another treat…see ya!

Making the Bed

I got a chance to wash several of Sid’s beds this weekend (yeah, he’s got a BUNCH of ’em). His more oft-used beds had been looking pretty flat and were omitting that charming odour d’pug, so it was a much overdue task. His “fancy” bed (which he got for his tenth Birthday) washed up really nicely though it did require some disassembly prior to washing. After a thorough hot-water cycle down at the Pug Slope laundromat, the bed was restored to its super fluffy, clean-smelling state.

I reassembled all the bolsters, zipped-up all the zippers, and plunked it down in front of Sid. After a five-minute sniff test, he proceeded to spend the next twenty minutes digging, face-mashing, and sneezing on the bed to make it his very own.

I think he got it just right.

Charting the Course

In less than a week, Sid and I will be setting forth on a week-long epic camping trip all the way around Lake Michigan. I’ve been busy gathering up all the camping supplies and paraphernalia we’ll need so I’ve left all the route-planning in Sid’s capable paws.

Although, I took a quick peak at the route thus far, and there seem to be way more stops at pet supply stores than state parks.

Hmmmm, might need to just keep him in charge of something he’s more qualified to do: meal planning.

Rascally Rabbit!

Greetings and salutations to all you wonderful Pug Slopers out there!

This is Sid here with you today and I wanted to tell you all about a new member of my gang.

As soon as I set my bulging pug eyes on his magnificent long ears and puffy white tail, I couldn’t resist inviting him to play. Get over here, Rabbit!

We had a wondeful time playing chase and tag and basically all the games that rabbits like.

We ended the day with a relaxing cuddle and talked about our mutual love of baby carrots.

Double Trouble

I’m not sure how exactly, but this happened today:

No, you aren’t seeing double, there really are TWO KONGS pictured. And both are there solely for the snacking pleasure of just one Siddhartha Lamont.

Sid just kept repeating “The numbers check out” and “I did the math” while frantically slurping out peanut butter from Kong #1 as his eyes maintained steady watch of Kong #2.

Jicamaniac

Just the other day, Sid got his first taste of jicama and now he’s a full-fledged jicamaniac. Be sure to turn up your speakers for the full “crunch-o-sonic” sound experience!

Goin’ Bowlin’?

When Sid and I went for our morning walk the other day, we made a slight detour. I know from the photo above, with the retro lockers, space-age chair, and sparkly floor, that one might think were in a bowling alley. Unfortunately for Sid, were not going bowling but were instead going for something else that starts with the letter “B”.

So, um, like where do I rent my shoes?

The weather here for the past couple of weeks had been very wet and that, coupled with some major road and sewer construction underway in our neighborhood, had led to large swaths of mud and puddles of water the size of small lakes. Our walks took us right through the heart of this mucky territory daily. In summary: the pug was filthy.

This explains why we were not rolling strikes but were instead squeezing bottles of pug shampoo. The caked-on mud required a bit more shampoo than normal, but soon our flat-faced wonder was squeaky-clean and smelling of coconuts.

Now, Sid, don’t forget to dry off!
