Problems Every Small Dog Understands

Rosy has a weird relationship with our neighboring dogs. She generally fears/hates strange dogs, especially big ones, as I don't think she was properly socialized with her prior family or maybe she had a bad experience. But she sees our neighboring dogs on a daily basis so she's kind of used to them and super intrigued by them.

The German Shepard mix that lives next to us is so patient with Rosy. Just a few days ago, Rosy barked at her (as usual) and then calmed down enough to sniff. But Rosy's so tiny she can practically walk under most big dogs. Next thing I know, Rosy's standing up on her back legs, her front paws planted on the big dog's butt cheeks, and sniffing deeply. She really got in there!

Sunny and I were mortified.

Hot and Humid

I complain all the time about the heat and humidity, but now that it's late September I feel like my complaints are totally valid and justified. I also had the wonderful idea to cut my hair a little shorter than usual this past weekend and now it's curling and frizzing like crazy.

It's time for summer to take the hint and go away and take all the bugs with it too. This week is summer's last hurrah here and it's so muggy and gross and the mosquitoes are going crazy for their last bites.

Of course, no matter what the weather is like, my super warm, barnacle love bug pugs want to glom onto my body and snuggle 24/7. Normally I love it, but sometimes it gets to be a bit much and overheats me. The humidity also brings out the delightful pet store aroma from their usual fritolicious scent. (Ooh that reference to a pet store just reminded me to buy more dog food before we run out).

Summer, it's not me. It's you. Go away. Come back next year when we're all tired of the cold.

What To Do When You See a Bug in Your Home

I hate bugs.  I hate them with a passion.

One of the things I hate about them the most is that they like to hang out on the ceiling of my bedroom.  I don't know if it's because my bedroom is essentially the attic or they like the sloped ceilings or what.  By now I've developed a tried and true method that I've outlined in this illustration. Enjoy.

Weekend Plans

Happy Friday!

I don't know if it's because summer is ending or what, but I've been feeling extra lazy lately.  So this weekend, I'll be relaxing with my pugs.  Hope you all have a great weekend too!
