Awkward & Annoying Situations Made Better with Pugs - The Long Hallway

Don't you just hate it when you see someone you know at the end of a long hallway or street? When do you acknowledge each other's presence? When do you say hi or wave? Should you pretend you have to stop and tie a shoelace or duck into another room? All these worries are wiped away if you replace the approaching casual acquaintance with cute lovey dovey pugs!

I am the queen of awkward social situations and am a big ol grump when it comes to having to deal with most people. So I think I'll embrace the humor of my flaws and do a series on my blog (in addition to Pugling Rivalry) called "Awkward and Annoying Situations Made Better with Pugs." This is the first installment, "The Long Hallway." This is something near and dear to me as I encounter this situation everyday because my workplace consists of a super duper long hallway and I work at one end of it.

Pugling Rivalry - Rosy's Diary Entry #8 (Squish)

4-10-14

Dear Diary,

OMG it happened today! Sunny snuggled close to me and then while she was half asleep she plopped her muzzle on my back. Squeeeee!!! She loves me! Sibling bonding!

Sisters by chance, friends by choice! We're going to be best friends forever and ever and ever!

Pugs and Kisses!
Rosy

Pugling Rivalry - Sunny's Log Entry #8 (Squish)

4-10-14

I've mentioned before the importance of getting quality sleep in my old age.  Well, not only does Rosy disrupt my sleep in the mornings when she wakes up first, she also has this annoying habit of squishing against me and draping her paws over me when we nap. Rude!

Rosy has no respect for her older sister. How would she like it if I constantly squished against her and draped myself over her? Maybe I will do just that and teach her a lesson. Then she'll realize how irritating it is and stop.

Sunshine

Aw yeah, sunshine and warmer weather! Sunny and Rosy are thoroughly enjoying the bright and sunny days we're finally getting now that spring has rolled in and pushed out our crazy cold winter.

I don't think there's anything that says contentment more than sleepy sunbathing pugs.

Pugling Rivalry - Sunny's Log Entry #7 (Rain)

4-7-14

It's pouring outside! I was dragged out of my comfy warm bed this morning and thrust outside in the cold rain. Honestly, I don't know how we're expected to do anything in this type of weather. My paws were wet.

WET. PAWS.

Unacceptable! And the wind blew huge raindrops into my eyes so I couldn't even see where I was going. This is uncurled tail down weather my friend.

Rosy of course was happily swimming around doing her business wherever she pleased. Savage.

I of course refused to do my business in such terrible inclement weather. Instead I plan on leaving a nice present for my human on the dry and warm kitchen floor.

Dear Diary,

Not much new going on here.  Same ol, same ol.  It was a bit drizzly this morning but not too bad.  Still had fun on our morning walk!  I hope the sun comes out today though because I really wanted to sunbathe this afternoon.  Got to work on my tan before summer gets here! :)

XOXO,
Rosy

Double Boop

Boop boop! Toot toot! Make way for the pugs!

Sunny has the more ridonkulous tongue that she's always sticking out, but Rosy has been sticking out her tongue a lot recently too! No one can resist booping their cute tongues! NO ONE.

Ninja Pug is back! And this time she is showing off her moves in front of her apprentice. This particular move is called the starfish attack. The apprentice has much to learn.

More adventures to follow...

Spring Days

After a terrible spring intro with high winds, nonstop rain, and a bit of snow, we are all very happy to be entering into more mild spring weather!

I recently finally made the plunge and bought a drawing tablet (Wacom Intuos Pen and Touch Small Tablet) and have been experimenting with it. Below are a couple more I did with my new tablet:

Spring Sunset
Game of Snorts
I've discovered that nothing beats putting pen to paper for drawing, but I'm enjoying using it for coloring and enhancing pictures. It takes some getting used to though. I've been using the tablet with Corel Painter Essentials. Corel Painter offers the closest real life experience for using various mediums. I would've gotten a better version of Corel Painter, but (I'm almost too embarrassed to say this) I discovered I have an outdated Windows platform (Vista!). I only really use my computer for internet stuff so I totally forgot what platform I had and now it's gotten to the point where I'll probably get a new one sometime soon so what's the point of updating it now. Anyways, long story short - I'm having fun with my new Wacom tablet with Corel Painter Essentials. I'll still do black & white as my main style (color takes a lot longer and I'm so impatient) but I'll be experimenting more with color.

Pugling Rivalry - Rosy's Diary Entry #6 (Infection)

4-1-14

Dear Diary,

Uh oh! Sunny's got an ear infection! Her scratching and head shaking all the time is so annoying so I'll be glad when it's gone. Plus I love munching on her wonderfully velvety ears! I hope ear infections aren't contagious - I can't stand having any drops put into my ears and will clench them shut!

I wonder how Sunny's ear got infected???

XOXO,
Rosy

Pugling Rivalry - Sunny's Log Entry #6 (Infection)

4-1-14

Horror upon horrors - I am cursed with an ear infection! I am now subjected to regular attacks by the human with those terrible ear drops. I try not to show weakness in front of Rosy but I can't resist scratching my itchy ear. Hopefully this ailment will pass quickly and I'll return to good health soon.

Ugh Monday

Ugh Monday. How I hate it so. My week is going to be busy at work and it's already off to a rough start. Bleh.

Bah Humpug!

P.S. Yes, Rosy often lifts her leg up to pee like a boy!

Pugling Rivalry - Rosy's Diary Entry #5 (Grass is Greener)

3-25-14

Dear Diary,

Yesterday Sunny and I got these delicious chews that our human calls bully sticks.

I HEART BULLY STICKS!

They are so yummy and fun to chew on!  I'd love to have one every day forever and ever but we only get them as special treats every now and then. 

Sunny kept trying to steal my bully stick.  I don't know why though since she had the bigger one!  As the younger sister and baby of the family I really think she should have offered me the bigger bully stick. I tried stealing hers away but she snapped at me.  Hmph!

XOXO,
Rosy

Yesterday our human gave me and Rosy bully sticks.  She claims they were of equal size, but Rosy's definitely looked bigger!  As the alpha I should get the biggest and best of everything!

I tried stealing Rosy's away but I got reprimanded.

Pugling Rivalry - Sunny's Log Entry #4 (Early Wake-up Call)

3-24-14

This morning I was rudely awakened a full hour before normal wake-up.  In my old age I need a full night's sleep to be alert and ready during the day.  But Rosy had other plans and annoyingly woke everyone up early, claiming she had to immediately relieve herself outside.  That's what she said, but I noticed that as soon as we went outside she spent a good few minutes sniffing around and growling at other dogs instead of taking care of her business right away.  I call shenanigans!


Pugling Rivalry - Rosy's Diary Entry #4 (Early Wake-up Call)

3-24-14

Dear Diary,

This morning I really really really had to go outside to do my business.  You know those times when you have to go so badly it wakes you up?  Well the problem was everyone else was still asleep and snoring!  I tried waiting for as long as I could, but when you gotta go, you gotta go!  So I gently woke everyone up to let them know I had to go.

Sunny doesn't understand.  She's like a pee camel!  All she wants to do in the morning is sleep and sleep and sleep.

XOXO,
Rosy

Smile, It's Almost The Weekend!

Smile! It's almost the weekend! Today's drawing was inspired by the goofy grin Rosy gave me this morning as she waited for her goodbye treat before I left for work.

Hope you all have a great weekend! TGIF!

Pugling Rivalry - Rosy's Diary Entry #3 (Neighbor)

3-20-14

Dear Diary,

It wasn't my fault!!

Today this chihuahua kept staring and making mean faces at me as we tried to exit the building for our morning walk.  I really had to pee and this stupid huge chihuahua (he was as big as me!) was blocking our way and making fun of me.  Of course no one was looking and when I tried to get Sunny's attention she just ignored me and bumped me with her big ol butt.

I swear the chihuahua started crouching and growling and I just know he was getting ready to pounce so I had to defend myself!  That got Sunny's attention and of course she took the side of a complete stranger and snapped at me.  ME - HER OWN SISTER!  Our human got mad at both of us and was apologizing to the chihuahua's human.  Whatever!  It was his fault!

NOT FAIR.

Sigh,
Rosy

Pugling Rivalry - Sunny's Log Entry #3 (Neighbor)

3-20-14

Today Rosy snapped at a poor lil chihuahua for no reason!  RUDE.  I always like to meet neighbors and exchange pleasantries but I didn't even get a chance to say hello because of Rosy.  Of course I had to step in and regulate my spastic sister and so now my human is annoyed with both of us for acting out in public.  Sheesh, it's not my fault! I was trying to help control the situation!

Rosy is so mean and crazy.  At this rate, we won't make any new friends this year.

Pugling Rivalry - Sunny's Log Entry #2 (Mr. Koala)

3-19-14

I lost another one today.  Poor Mr. Koala.  He had such a short life here.  I've laid him to rest with the others.  Such senseless destruction.
