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.

Our Turn to "Paw it Forward"

Hi all my fellow bloggers. Well mum has finally allowed me to post my "paw it forward" (something about saving up for it... PayDay!) Anyway we really liked the way Lilo did her "charity paw it forward" so we have decided to follow a similar concept.
For the next week we encourage all bloggers to post a comment (aka "blog bark") on this post. In doing so I will donate $1 Canadian dollar for every comment posted toward a charitable organization that is animal related. Please list a charitable organization (animal related ie: pug rescue, SPCA, WWF etc.) of your choice and list it in your comment. I will then take the names of everyone who listed a charitable organization and my mum will draw one name from a hat and that person's chosen charitable organization will receive the donation. Anyone can post a comment even if you don't list a charitable organization. The more the comments the more money will be donated to the winner's choice. The charitable organization can be Canadian or American. Spread the word!


  1. This is pawsome! We think our Momma should do this too. She usually just gives to MAPR but we wanted to leave a comment for Seattle Pug Rescue, they always seem to take in very needy pugs. Thanks for you helps!!!

  18. Hi Winston!

    Although I am a Frechie, I have become sort of an honorary pug due to all our pug blogging buddiess, so we have a lot of friends in common. I think what you are doing is just fantasitic! Our favorite charity is FBRN (French Bulldog Rescue Network), so throw that one into the hat when you draw a winner for your donation :)
