Pug Summer Days

Now that the summer days have rolled in and July is just around the corner, Sunny is showing Rosy the typical summer routine here.  Pugs especially are very sensitive to heat, so I make sure that we all stay as cool as possible.  I think summer isn't really the girls' favorite season, but there is the prospect of getting some delicious table scraps from summer bbqs so that might outweigh all the heat and humidity!  Hope everyone is staying cool this summer!

Unlazy Days of Summer

Unfortunately I have a project at work that got a crazy unrealistic rush deadline and so I may not be posting that much in the next few weeks.  No lazy fun summer days for me.  I'll try to post drawings when I can.  I'm quite cranky about it and the dogs are concerned this will cut into our snuggling time.  Bah!

The Art of Pug War

Rosy instigates about 98% of the squabbles between her and Sunny. While Sunny's moves are generally focused on defense, Rosy has her favorite attack moves. Based on the comments I get on my Facebook and Instagram photos it appears these are common tactics with lots of pugs. It's like they're all given a manual or taught in class how to do these moves...

Here are a few examples of the tactics described in my drawing in real life with my pugs, Sunny and Rosy. Enjoy.

A Good Friend

Rosy is a big fan of sitting on those she loves, including me and Sunny. We're happy to provide the support her lil butt needs! Well I am, but I don't know if Sunny feels the same way...

Weekday v. Weekend Mornings

Unfortunately my pugs are the worst alarm clocks ever. On weekday mornings they oversleep and laze about in the bed well past the alarm going off. In fact this morning when I woke up Rosy was still snoring and didn't even stir when I moved the blanket and left the room.

On weekends though they are determined to wake me up early. Rosy's favorite tactic is trying to sit on my face as I push away her butt (does she do this when I'm sleeping?? Has her butt been scooting all over my face as I sleep each night??). Sunny likes to luck my face with her big slobbery tongue and stand on my chest (little paws of pain!).

So the above drawing is a typical weekday morning. So hard to get up when the pugs are acting cute and sleepy!

And the bottom drawing is my tropical weekend morning. Augh butt kisses and slobber!
And here's my pugs in real life in bed. Sleepy bunny armsing blobs...
And spot stealing, wiggly, and heavy fur balls.
And for those who may be thinking that waking up to pug kisses is delightful, picture this slurping across your face, including making contact with your mouth, nose and eyes.

Go Away Rain!

It's been raining cats and dogs since yesterday evening and none of us are pleased with it. Not to mention that while taking the girls on our last walk of the night yesterday and getting drenched the power went out. Being outside really late on a stormy night alone when it suddenly goes completely dark is not fun and we scurried back inside. My whole apartment smells like wet dog and this morning Sunny reinstated the hated poo strike. So rain, please go away. If not for me, then at least for the sake of Sunny's bowels.

Pugs Really Don't Believe in Personal Space

A while ago I did a drawing of me and Sunny and how pugs don't understand personal space (post here). Well now that we have Rosy, Sunny now understands what it's like to have no personal space too! Muahahaha! 
I love it.

Don't Tell Me To Smile

This drawing was inspired by three things:
(1) I don't generally walk around all smiley and cheerful so growing up I was often told (sometimes by total strangers) to smile more.  I HATED that.
(2) People always comment on how pugs look so sad but just because their faces often look sad, doesn't mean they actually are.
(3) I'm feeling particularly grumpy/cranky/low lately so this seemed fitting.

I'll be adding products with this in my Zazzle store.  Part of the reason why I drew this was because I wanted to make a t-shirt for myself.  So if you ever see a grumpy looking girl wearing a shirt with this with two adorable sad-faced stubborn pugs, then there's a good chance that's me!
