So here's a pug version of Totoro. He has a more cat-like face, but his body always reminded me of a pug! And instead of the lil cute dust balls, here we have pug fur balls. Because let's be honest, all of us who have pugs (or other high-shedding pets) are quite familiar with chasing these lil fur balls with our high-powered vacuums.

What are some of your favorite and least favorite sounds your dog makes?
Friday, February 28, 2014
Yeah, it's Friday! This is pretty much what happens every Friday when I come home.
So glad the weekend is almost here! Not because I have exciting and awesome social plans, but because I've been fighting off a case of bronchitis for a while now and have been so tired and can use a couple days of rest.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

In honor of Pug Chat today, here's a drawing of some pugs chatting the way that they do.
I don't usually do black pugs with my ink-only drawings because it's too hard to do right, but since we have so many different kind of pugs at Pug Chat I wanted to include them here. What do you think? Below is the drawing with just fawn pugs.
If you want to join Pug Chat just follow HamiltonPug on Twitter and use the hashtag #pugchat! He hosts an hour long chat every Wednesday at 7pm Eastern and there's always prizes being given out at the end! Hopefully we'll see you then!

If you like dogs that give you space and aren't needy, then a pug is not for you. But if you love the idea of having a little furry barnacle with you at all times, then a pug may very well be for you!

(P.S. I'll be adding this to my store as well soon.)

Here's another Valentine's Day themed drawing I did that I never uploaded into my store. I was supposed to add text and I was going to do a few of these "I love you more than..." in rows. Instead I forgot about this one so I added some text using one of my phone's apps. I'll do a proper version of this for my store soon.

Afterwards, as my sister and I sat dazed in a post-documentary and -wine-and-chips-binge (yeah, we're classy like that), she asked whether we're kinda doing the same thing with dogs. I looked over at my snoring pugs, happily draped over our laps, and answered that while that may have been the case early on in the domestication of dogs, I seriously don't think our dogs could survive or be happy in the wild now. Pugs especially have been bred to be companion dogs. But it definitely made us think about how we interact with animals both as pets and as wild creatures.
If you haven't seen it already, I highly recommend watching it.
P.S. I know lots of people successfully have crate trained their dogs, but I generally let mine roam free in most of my apartment while I'm gone. It's just a personal preference and the girls rarely cause any trouble or messes (knock on wood! Watch now I'm going to go home to some sort of disaster today). The only time they're in there with the door closed is when I have maintenance workers in my apartment or if we're traveling in someone else's car.

(1) I like to do Illustration Friday when I can and if I get a good idea for the weekly topic as it often pushes me to do something outside my usual.
(2) To point out that not only does Sunny have a juicy drumstick, but she's always flaunting it!
(3) To point out that Sunny and Rosy have no real survival instincts and are scared by the stupidest things but want to attack very dangerous things like cars, big dogs, wild creatures on TV. So if faced with a dinosaur, I think there's a very good chance they would bark at it instead of running away.
