Happy Halloween!!!

Mommy dressed me up as a clown, as you can see. Look how enthusiastic I am about this wonderful costume. Right......

I went to doggie day care today because mommy thinks I need to socialize with dogs since I stay home all day and sleep until she comes home. So that means I get to go once a week and have some fun.

I stayed for the whole day until mommy came and picked me up after work. I had so much fun playing with all the other dogs. I even met 3 other pugs. Mommy was worried when she walked me into the door because I marked the entrance, the pamphlet rack and then the bookshelf in the reception area when I first walked in. But the teacher assured me that it's normal because I was just scared...but mommy looked horrified and embarrassed. But I proved to the teachers that I was a very well behaved dog and knew where to do my real business.

I can't wait until I go again next week!!

I found out what 'the snip' meant. Uh-oh.....Nov. 14th is the day.....Tug, my pug buddy from day care told me that it's not going to feel so good......yikes!

Awwww, what did I do now????

I ate half of a pen....and hid it underneath my pillow for later. But mommy found it and threw in the trash, she always knows where everything is. Now, I'll just have to find another pen....shhh..don't tell mommy.

I went to the vet today for my eye problem from Friday. Mommy didn't want to take any chances and wanted to check if my eye was really ok. A pug's eye can't be ignored because our eyes bulge right out of our heads and sometimes it's the first thing that gets hit when we bump into things, sometimes I wish my snout is longer.

We had to go to a 24 hour vet because my regular vet was closed Sundays so I was more scared than usual. I kept barking at the other patients waiting, there was a cat, first time encountering a cat and a small Yorkie.

We waited for an hour, I was getting restless but stuck it out. The vet put some green ointment on my eye to see if there was any scratches on my corneas and there was a tiny one and then I had my temperature taken, hated that part, and had my legs and tummy messaged to see if my joints and bowels were ok. Hey, I thought this was for my eyes only! Then I had a shot near my bum bum, the vet said it was to prevent me from scratching my eye with my paw. Mommy and daddy couldn't understand why a shot would work that way but they wanted what was best for me.

I'm going to take a nap now, it's been a long afternoon.

Puppy obedience school was fun but I ate too much and threw up when I got home. Mommy was petrified, she's never seen me throw up! But I'm ok now. I guess I got a bit too hyper and my breakfast and treats didn't digest right.
My good friend, the 'taco bell' dog, Dim Sum came to visit me today. I had a good time chasing him around but he's way too fast for me and he can jump on the couch, which I try to do but keep falling short. My stubby legs are not made for that yet. I think he's annoyed of me because I keep wanting to play, you see, he's 2 years older than I am and he doesnt' have enough energy to keep up with a young pup like me.

But it was great having him over because I'm the only dog in the family.

I had a scare tonight, I was playing as usual at daddy's house and auntie Karyn noticed that my right eye was red, tearing up and I was blinking really fast. Mommy ran right by my side and examined it. She could tell that my eye was really hurt so she rinsed it out with water and I hate water on me so next thing I know, I'm running out of her arms and ran right into a wall. I yelped and got mommy more worried. She decided to take me home to rest so hopefully my eye will be better tomorrow morning. I have a doggie class tomorrow at Blue Prints so I want to be 100%. I hope mommy is still not too worried about me.

How do you like my new charm for Halloween? I got this at the Petsmart Howl-o-ween costume party. Notice that it actually says 'howl-o-ween' on it! It even glows in the dark! Double WOW!

I've been so spoiled lately, I got to sleep on the bed with mommy all month so far, I wonder why she's letting me? Maybe because I'm totally potty trained and she trusts me! I love to cuddle in her arms, but most times, I move a lot because I like to sleep in all sorts of spots around mommy's bed, above her head, near her foot, on her foot, in her arms,on her belly.....I guess I do that because mommy hogs the bed, I suggest a bigger bed, right mommy?

Remember my friend, Dim Sum, aka the taco bell dog, aka the Chihuahua? Well, he has a new brother, another taco bell dog. His name is Chiko and he's not very playful. He won't let me sniff him and he doesn't want to ever play with me. He growls at me all the time. But I'm glad Dim Sum is still my friend. At least Dim Sum doesn't mark everything in his sight. Shhhh, don't tell Chiko I said that. I'm kind of afraid of him, yes, I know, he's the size of my paw but he has a mean bark you know.

Well, today, I came over daddy's house and smelled Chiko's scent all over so I decided to tell him who's boss, so I marked everywhere Chiko marked. Hahaha, look who's smart now Chiko. Somehow, Mommy and Daddy was not impressed with what I did and yelled at me. Mommy said "I can't wait until the snip". I wonder what that means??? That doesn't sound too good.

Aunt Linda and Mommy took me to Petsmart today because they were having the Howl-o-ween Costume Party. My pumpkin costume was a big hit but unfortunately, I didn't win. My neighborhood buddy, Phil won, he was a scary Pirate! I'm glad he won. I also saw another neighbor dog, Zeus, we sniffed eachother like ol' buddies.

Here's me in the orange pumpkin suit, Zeus, in the red cap, and Phil the Pirate.

Here's the competition line up

Say Cheeez!

So I told ya'll I'm trained in the litter box as well as going outside on the grass right? Well, I went in the litter box as usual today and guess what happens? I lifted up my legs and went on mommy's wallpaper. I guess Mommy never expected me to lift my legs up in the litter box but I did, now, my pee pee did make it in the litter box but it had to go down the wallpaper first....whoopsi..... Sorry Mommy.

Mommy made me gourmet garlic canine biscuits. They're ok, I still like milkbones better.

Look, I can do a new trick! Daddy taught me this one.

Stay still

Catch it

Good boy!

Do I look handsome or what? Another creation from my mommy. This is way better than my pumpkin costume.

I am a barker. I admit it, I bark at anything that passes my eye, a flying leaf, kids on bikes, joggers going by, even cars. My daddy and mommy does not like it when I do this. They are trying really hard to train me not to bark by rattling a can of pennies, waving a treat in front of my eye, even growling at me but it doesn't work. I am very curious and all I want is to say hi but I end up making people run away from me. I'm so little, what harm can I do?

Ok, mommy made me this ridiculous pumpkin costume that she wants me to wear for Halloween. I'll wear it only if there's a treat for me. Can you tell I love it by the expression on my face? Help me someone!

Daddy was playing with me last night and guess what happened? One of my back molars came out when I was chewing on my ball! Daddy swooped it up before I got to it and showed it to Mommy. She made a big commotion and gave me a full soft milk bone! Now it's in my puppy album....I have a puppy album? Well, I guess I shouldn't have swallowed all the other teeth, just imagine how much milk bones I would've gotten!
