In reality I think her thoughts are more like "Kibble, kibble, kibble, baby carrots, baby carrots, pee, poo, orange bunny, nap, itchy, pee, blue koala, nap, human!, pet me, nap, pet me, feed me, what's that smell?, pee, poo, itchy, itchy, orange bunny, zzzzzzzzzz."

My mind immediately jumped to shelter dogs and how sad, lonely, and confused they must feel sitting in their caged rooms. Modern dogs have mostly been bred to be companions to humans so it must be especially heartbreaking for them to be stuck in these cold rooms filled with strange dogs and with no affection. My sister rescued a pug from a high kill shelter once and I remember her telling me about how the pug sat facing one wall and leaning against another with her eyes closed, almost like she'd given up. That image has stuck with me since then. So for all of you who have rescued a pet, Sunny and I thank you!
Sheesh sorry I didn't mean to get all sad Sarah McLachlan SPCA commercial on you! I promise I have a happy drawing coming up later today!

On a lazy weekend Sunny and I like to relax and run some errands. If I didn't worry about looking like a pug-crazed weirdo, I would totally walk around with Sunny strapped to me. She's getting older and gets tired faster so I think she'd appreciate being carried around! Plus she's a stubborn and persistent sniffer so this would really be the most efficient way for us to get around long stretches. Maybe one day...

Because this was a two-pager in my sketchbook it's a bit big here but I wanted it big enough for the text to come out clearly.

c.creativity commented on my last post of Jack and Jill, asking about a pug interpretation of Jack Be Nimble and how a pug would jump over the candlestick. So this is my response!
Now I know there are a bunch of pugs that are actually quite active and agile (there are agility pugs out there!), and even Sunny has her energetic spry moments. But most pugs I've known (including Sunny) really do love to nap and can be super lazy and stubborn at times. So this lil pug might need a little help "jumping" over the candlestick.

Given the background of the pug, I thought it only fitting that I do a drawing of them like the Chinese guardian lion statutes. Unfortunately, I think they look a little less fierce than the lion versions but if I ever have a palace, I will for sure have these pug statutes at the entryway!

Holy moly this east coast heat wave is killing me and Sunny! Neither of us handles heat very well and so we're just trying to stay in air conditioning as much as possible until it gets a teensy bit cooler later this week.

Yesterday was Sunny's second gotcha day anniversary! Two years ago on July 7th, I picked her up and welcomed her into my home and heart. We celebrated yesterday with some yummy human food treats and if you're in the mood for seeing lots of pictures of a chubby pug chowing down on random food check out my Lil Smug Pug post here! I think Sunny thoroughly enjoyed yesterday, but now I think she expected the same treats this morning. Hmm, I hope I didn't create a bad habit...
Happy Gotcha Day (yesterday) Sunny!

Moral: Idleness brings want. So always have a human trained to work hard for you and feed you yummy food.
