After nearly two years of using the same Buddy Belt Dog Harness, I finally decided to get Porky a new color. We are thankful to the makers of this great product for saving Porky’s neck…and possibly, his life. He was choking so bad before that sometimes he puked, even without a harness on. Although we had always used harnesses, he was and still is a super puller on the lead. He just gets so excited about everything.
Hail down to the makers of this life saving dog harness…it is so comfortable that they don’t even feel it’s on them and easy to use. Both Pugs walk better on the lead but still pull but there is minimal to no choking which is a miracle. Porky has shown great improvement and reduction in direct choking (psycho pulling on the lead) and indirect choking (random choking even when he was not on his lead). Brownie started using this harness at a younger age so he shows no signs of choking but still, not sure if it is a Pug thing, pulls a great deal on the lead.
Anyhoo, back to the Porker. He deserves it…he brings a great deal of joy into our lives and makes this house our home. Our first dog and the “Marley” of the Pug world, his shenanigans and Houdini antics have hit every nerve we have but we love him so so much. Here he is in his new Belly Band Bone Print and Buddy Belt Mod Yellow Harness.
Brownie’s old black Buddy Belt is two years old so a while after this photo was taken, I got him a new Special Edition Buddy Belt in Moss Green with Texas Star…photos to come!

The Reliant Dog Show in Houston was late last month…we are a little behind on the posting. It’s been one thing after another so unfortunately, we have way too many photos and not enough time to blog. Since I am behind, I will stick to the most recent event. Porky & Brownie had a blast at the Reliant Dog Show…this was our second time attending and even more exciting, we had a booth there for FunnyFur.com so the boys got to go hang out everyday for 4 days. We saw so many small dogs do neat tricks…it’s really inspirational. It was also great fun to see our friends from Pug Hearts – Houston’s Pug Rescue. Cindy and the wonderful volunteers have rescued 229 Pugs since they started in February 2007!
Our booth was across from the Pittbull Rescue so the boys got to meet some new friends…I didn’t have my camera handy…darn!
Here’s the booth.
Here’s Brownie hanging out in the aisle, greeting customers.
Brownie had a lot of admirers at the show…he got more love than his brother. I think it’s just because he was wearing brighter colors. He was wearing his Marvel Hulk Hoodie and Captain America Shield Backpack.
BeBe, our Chihuahua Spokesdoggy was there, too. She was carried at all times since she is only 3 lbs and gets stepped on quite a bit. Since she is tiny, we have to be careful because people really want to kidnap her…she is the most outgoing little Chihuahua. She has no idea how tiny she is. BeBe was wearing her Hulk Hoodie, too. She is kind of kissing Porky in this picture…I think. Brownie does not seem to want to play. He is super lazy these days and just wants to nap.
Porky’s BFF Tanner came by to say hi and his Mommy bought him a new Rambo Army Cammo Dog Lead and Captain America Doggy Backpack to match Brownie…or her very blue shoes. The blue shoes really stand out with the Captain America backpacks. That’s his new Moss Green color Buddy Belt Dog Harness…we really want to get two new colors for the boys…they have had their black ones forever and it’s getting a little boring. This harness works the best for Pugs and last forever.
I was trying to get a picture of the boys all playing together but they kept moving. Erika, Tanner’s Mom, tried to round them up with no luck.
So of course I had to bust out the treaties…all eyes are now on me!
I think Porky wants a backpack…soon. Brownie usually gets all the new toys and clothes because he likes dressing up and loves plush toys. He just goes ga-ga for toys and fruits. Everyone thinks that Brownie wants to be a vegetarian. Porky just has one love…FOOD…any and all food, no discrimination.
More pictures of Tanner. He is so handsome! I almost got a Boston Terrier or Bulldog but then I saw Brownie and could not resist his chocolate charm.
Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures! We had a ball and it tired all of us out!

These Buddy Belts step in harness are the absolute best for Puggies! It saves their necks and prevents damage to tracheas caused by pulling. No more choking or coughing during walks and Puggies LOVE this harness! Learn more about them here. The size 6 seems to fit most Pugs well.
PS – Not only are these Buddy Belts functional, they are quite stylish and fashionable. Porky & Brownie LOVES their Buddy Belts!
