We have been missing California and all the Pug groups, Pug parties, and our friends. I was able to get some old pictures from our very close Pug friends from our Pug playdate back in LA (back in 2005!) at Dog Zone dog beach in Long Beach. Porky was the only small dog who was swimming in the Pacific Ocean beach with no life jacket. He is so brave! We miss our Puggy friends so much and all the great fun activities for dogs! Houston doesn’t have too many social activity for Puggies.

I am not sure what’s going on but we are noticing a lot of our Puggers are no longer online or have not posted in quite some time. Is this a slow blogging time? I suppose with the economy being down and all, these are tough times. We have been so busy traveling and moving, so I totally understand the slow blogging. But Suki and Joey’s blog was totaly removed! What’s going on?

Don’t get over anxious. We did not get a new puppy. Maya has left several comments on the chat in regards to some house breaking tips for her new Pug puppy. It’s been a while since my boys were puppies and thank goodness…I don’t miss the house training nightmares. I do miss their adorable Pug puppy faces…too adorable and cute. We use this indoor potty system by Wiz Dog which we got at www.funnyfur.com. The trick is to keep the towel paper you use to clean their pee and then place the soiled paper underneath the Wiz Dog…or if you are using potty pads or newspaper, get a few drops of their pee on it. They like to sniff and go potty in their territory. I would keep the puppy in the bathroom or laundry room and use a baby gate so they can still visibly see everything and everyone, so they don’t feel left out of any action. A young puppy is anxious and has a small bladder, they really don’t understand the concept of a bathroom and will want to go whereever. When you see them going in circles, sniffing the ground, or ready to lift/squat, pick them up and correct them by placing them at the place you have designated as their toilet. Then of course, praise them. Correcting and praising is best and most effective. If you do not have a lot of time to do this, try crate training.
Those are just a few things from the top of head. I totally suggest the “Pugs For Dummies” book which has everything on Pugs and has provided me great information when I got my first Pug puppy Porky. It’s like a bible for Pug owners. Good luck with you new Pug puppy Maya!
Any other suggestions guys?

Porky up close an personal..
Brownie doing his usual pose…
Brownie LOVES toys…especially the ones that are bigger than him. He drags them all over the house.
Brownie’s toys…just the upstairs. He has more down there and laying all over the house.
We love toys in this house. We try to maintain an adult living space downstairs. There is a kiddy room upstairs (for our guest with kids) where we have all the toys…
Curious George and friends…
