Wet Pug

Because I've indulged in not one but two wordy, slightly overblown posts in the last day, and because I generally like to keep the mood lighter 'round these parts, here's a wet Pug to balance things out.

PUGS!!! Also, my Best Man's mom breeds pugs and the current batch should be wriggly and big enough to play now so I am trekking up north next weekend I believe. I will think of you and Wilfair when we roll through L.A. I am debating stopping at the corner and basking a little. The husband tends to be accomodating when I suggest pit stops so maybe!

I'm a lifelong Pug person! No Pugs in my house at the moment, but there will be again one day, most likely.

Lucky you. Nothing better than a batch of lil' wigglers.

If you stop at the corner take a photo and send it. I will post! Be sure to drive a few blocks east to see the tar pits, too.

Here's a next book hint: The lamp post artwork in front of the museum next door gets a mention in "Stay Awhile." It will also be in "Fairwil." You can't miss it: dozens of lamp posts bunched together.

And, if you feel like it, and I'm in the vicinity, drop me an email with the time you think you'll be at the corner. I'll dash up, give you a hug and possibly a cupcake, and then I'll run off, cackling.

Oh yes I will.

Doggie! Wet doggie!! Cute doggie!!!

Just so you know, most of the time I see pictures of Pugs, I have to think of you. I should see if I can find the image I saw the other day of a confused pug looking standing in front of a mat that has a pug on it.

I have this feeling looking at that pic that the pug just escaped some shrieking eels. Something about the water suggests fairy tale qualities.

Wilfair Book said...

Kitzie: I JUST caught that scene on TV last night.

Chiara: I love being associated with Pugs!

By the way, here's a short piece I wrote about one of our Pugs. He went onto animation infamy! I miss him:

Jerome and Puggo are so awesome! My dog is not that cool. Thanks for sharing!

Wilfair Book said...

Aw, thanks kitzie! Jerome was a special boy. What kind of dog do you have?

kitzie said...

Josie is a rescue dog, so we don't know for sure, but she looks like a Jack Russell Terrier and Corgi mix. (I just google imaged that, and, yeah, that's her.) She's about 12 or 13 pounds and makes dust bunnies the size of small furniture just like you said you were dealing with the other day. :)

Wilfair Book said...

Josie: great name.

Corgis: squishy, close-to-the-floor cuddle muffins.

Jack Russells: Leapy! Jumpy! Adorable. Chiara has a Jug. I'm loving all the Jack Russell mixes on the blog.

My current dog doesn't shed (as Pugs *totally* do) but he is a bit of a clumper. Like, just, he'll drop a clump of hair all at once. It's a bit, well, ew.

I'm not even going to type TMI question mark, because I support the freedom to go there on the Wilfair blog, wherever there might be. If we want to talk dogs and clumps, we shall. :)

Bouvier des Flandres don't shed. Or rather they do shed, but it gets all caught up in their coat and doesn't clump everywhere.

To make up for that, though, their farts are so powerful they can legally qualify as chemical warfare. Our affectionate nickname for our Bouvier (Antoinette-Marie) used to be "Sadaam Dog."

No dogs in the wealhtheow house now. Just an old cat. But we love her anyways.

Wilfair Book said...

I was very friendly with a Bouvier back in college called Bear. Like all dogs of size, Bear thought he was a lap dog. I miss him.

Cats? I want a plump orange tabby so much. I get a bit sneezy with cats, but I think I could weather it for a tabby.

Chiara said...

Love the story about Jerome and Puggo! So cute :)

Kitzie, your dog sounds adorable, she must be lots of fun!

Wilfair Book said...

Thanks, Chiara! Jerome and I were very, very close. I miss him so much but have loads of happy memories.
