Sid the Snowplow

Sid has decided to start his own business; a snow removal business.

Yep, you heard me correctly. Let me back up a minute and I think you’ll see why it makes perfect sense. It all started when we went outside during my lunch break to check out the freshly fallen snow.

Like usual, Sid just sniffed around, hunting for any pee-mail messages my neighbors’ dogs might have left for him in our apartment building’s back yard.

I decided to make a snow ball to see what Sid would do with it.

Well, like everything else new he encounters, he attempted to eat it.

Once he got a taste for the white fluffy treat, there was no stopping him. He quickly got to work excavating more of this delicious substance.

I tried to explain it was just regular old frozen water but I don’t think he could hear me over the crunch of the snowballs he kept devouring.

The cold didn’t seem to bother him and he was making some significant headway clearing away a path in the middle of the yard.

So now I think you understand the nature of Sid’s new business. Anyone need their driveway plowed??

If you aren’t yet convinced to hire this pug, here’s some video of Sid demonstrating his unwavering commitment to snow removal (and consumption):

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all are doing well. Happy New Year from me and my dad. It’s been crazy cold here in Chicago the past two weeks so I haven’t really gone on any epic adventures or gotten into any mischief worth mentioning.

Mostly just the routine of dashing outside, bundled up to the max of course, just to do my business and then hurrying back inside for my treat.

Other than that, it’s been mostly naps. One of my beds is right next to the radiator and the sunbeams stream in through the large window and onto my back. The only thing that could possibly make that any better would be if someone would supply me an endless stream of baby carrots to snack upon while I lounge (hint, hint dad).

Oh, that photo of me relaxing is actually from Christmas, when I was at my grandpugrents house cuddling with the new stuffed elephant I got from Santa. I basically went bonkers unwrapping gifts (many not even intended for me) and so I needed a rest afterwards!

Stay warm everyone and be sure to bundle up if you’re heading outside!

Merry Pugmas 2017!!!

Hello Everyone!

Wishing you all Happy Holidays this year from me and Sid!

Preparing for the Holidays

In order to get fully prepared for the holidays, Sid has been extending his afternoon naps by 45 mins for the past two weeks.

This extra rest will help fuel the madness that occurs when he is in the presence of wrapped Christmas presents and holiday snacks (especially those that have dropped to the floor). I think he’s on to something here!

The Little Details

By now, you probably all know what Sid looks like from a distance.

But today, I wanted to show some of the little pug details up close. Let’s start with his front paws. Sid has really long quicks, so his nails tend to be on the longer side since they can’t be trimmed very close.

Here’s his extra puffy tail (in uncurled mode). If you look closely you can even see a clump of loose fur sitting on top of his back. Yep, all that was just from a few butt scratches. Pugs are never-ceasing shedding machines.

And finally, here is one of his teeny back paws, one of my favorite parts. It’s amazing to me how those tiny little paws can support a pug’s body. Although I suppose around 80% of the pug’s weight distribution is up front, so those back paws don’t have to hold too much weight relatively speaking.

Oh, and one of my other favorite parts you can see in the photo above — THE SQUISHY ROLLS!!!

Feeling Thankful

Hey everyone! I’m sorry that Sid and I haven’t posted much this month. November just flew by!

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and got stuffed on good food last weekend. Sid and I took a trip out to the suburbs to hang with my family during the long weekend.

As would be expected, Sid was a huge help in the kitchen. He made sure the floor stayed immaculately clean!

We took a nice walk in the forest preserve with my mom and her newly-adopted Havenese, Peaches!

IMG_8652

Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to get a good picture of Sid and Peaches together, but they teamed up to make sure every square inch of the forest was thoroughly sniffed.

We also got to spend some time with my two nieces. They are huge fans of Sid and the feeling appeared to be mutual.

He doesn’t roll over for a belly rub for just anybody!

IMG_8647

We had a relaxing time escaping the city for a bit and spending time with family and eating some tasty food. Hope your Thanksgiving was the same!

That Time of the Year

This past Friday, while we were just sitting around minding our own business, this happened:

IMG_8461

I think Sid figured out something was up when I had to pull his box of winter clothes down from the closet shelf. Sorry, buddy, but it’s time to break out the fleece.

IMG_8458

Boy, that was one quick autumn! Anyone else got any snow already?
