Who is Smiling Pug?

"I am a happy pug therefore.... I am a smiling pug"! My mum is called Smilingpug... after me! Because of her love of animals and nature, she is a Buddhist and a vegetarian (thank god). She is most inspired by the Dalai Lama. We live on the West Coast of Canada and I share my home with my two older feline sisters Tika and Kizzy and my NEW little brother Sam Cooper who... is all the way from MidSouth Pug Rescue in Tennessee!! I am 11 and I don't walk to well anymore, but that doesn't mean I don't get around! Welcome to my blog.

A long distance Car Ride and a little history lesson

Me and mum
Wow I am pooped! Today mum said "car trip" and we piled into the car and headed to a small town called Hope BC. Mum said something about a movie called "Rambo' being filmed there in the 80's but I am not allowed to watch movies so I don't know that movie besides it was way before my pug-time. We traveled about 1 hour and 30 minutes to a place just outside of this "Hope BC" which is called Othello. I had so much fun there. We parked the car and walked the trail to these tunnels that at one time were part of an old railway line that was part of the Kettle Valley Railway. I walked through 3 tunnels and across 2 bridges. The tunnels were dark but I was not scared for a minute. I stayed right by mum's side so I could find where she was in the dark. We climbed down the rocks and played in the river. I got very excited and dug a hole under this overhanging rock. After it was all over we drove the long drive back home and boy was I a tired little boy! Check out my pictures and some video footage.

Posing on a rock overlooking the beach were I played in the sand.
This was so much fun. I dug a hole here and played in the sand.

On the way home, I crashed out on the floor of the car. This is just before I fell asleep.
Stopping for a Wee Wee break and to help Dad gas up.
I am so excited..... CAR RIDE!
Stopping to grab a drink. It was a hot day.
Mum climbed this rock and took a picture of me.... then I climbed the rock.
More view of the river.
Leaving the tunnels to head home.
Leaving the trail to the car. Bye Bye tunnels it was fun!
Mum caught me on video as I was snoring in the car. I fell asleep on the floor of the car and I had no idea she was filming me!!


  1. Nice little adventure you went on! Very scenic and lucky to live in such a beautiful place as Canada!

  2. Looks like you had a wonderful time! Car ride, outdoor time with mom and dad, a nice place to nap on the way home -- what more could a pug want! (well, maybe some noms)



Count down until our Mum's Birthday!
