Vacation Cycle for a Crazy Pug Lady

This past weekend I went to New York to visit a friend. Another friend lives in New Jersey so I was able to see both of them and we had a great time! I was sad to say bye to Sunny and Rosy, but I knew my parents would take great care of them. I find that I go through the same cycle where I plan a trip and get excited, but right before and in the beginning I worry about the girls. Then I have a great time (it is nice being free from constant pug fur and dog-related obligations) and tell myself I should take more trips until near the end when I miss the girls and stare at photos of them in my phone. And once I'm reunited I don't want to travel again and just want to lounge with the girls. I wish I could bring the girls with me everywhere I go!

This trip I ended up latching onto my friend's cat. I felt like Elmyra from Tiny Toons, constantly following her around and trying to pet her. She's much friendlier than most cats, but I'm so used to my two pugs who are total velcro dogs so I'm sure Fat Baby thought I was a crazy needy freak. Anyways, I'm excited for my next trip but for now I'm just enjoying being back home with the girls.

Here's some photos of my trip from the moment I left the girls with my parents to the night I picked them up. I'll try to do a more detailed post on my regular blog, Lil Smug Pug (I know I've been totally neglecting that one and my food blog!) on my NY visit. In case you couldn't tell from the photos below, my friends and I take food very seriously.



  1. the cat must have been relieved once you left,she couldn't even clean herself without being photographed :)

    I go through the same cycle when i leave the house and my house mates look after the cat.

  2. I just got back from two weeks away from my puglet and I was pretty stressed worrying about him! My son kept him at his condo and he escaped three times! UGH! Your girls are darling!

  3. when we were on vacation, my fiance and i talked about the pugs incessantly wondering if they missed us. vacation was awesome but we missed our stinkies so much!

  4. i know how you feel
    my husband and i can't help talking about our pug while we are vacationing
    so relieved when my parents sent me his photos

  5. Just got back from a week away, and we went through the same cycle. It's fun to enjoy the freedom (and cleanliness ;) ), but you spend a lot of time talking and thinking about the babies. I love loving them so much.

  6. Our Pugs are the reason I don't take vacations. I can't imagine leaving the little guys with someone else. Only vacations I can take are the ones on which I can take them with me.

  7. Last time we went on a camping/hiking trip with some friends, I missed my puggies so bad! When I saw a couple walking their 3 pugs I ended up having a long conversation with them about our pugs, and I got to pet, know the name of, and hear the story of all three of their pugs:-) LOVED IT While they could never replace my babies, I felt like I had my pug "fix" for another day. Now, when I'm out with my pugs I always take pity on another lonely pug lover.
