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.

Holiday Prep - Step 2 - The outdoor lights

So the holidays are drawing closer and the first step this year was to do my shoppings, which is done but..... still have to post them. Mum bought the wrong size packaging envelopes so she's gotta go out and get bigger ones! Anyways, I really wanted to put ups our tree but Mum said outdoor lights first. Here are pictures of us putting up our outdoor lights. Kizzy and TIka like to help out for this event (more than mes) as they find it fun to chase the string of lights across the floors.

First off..... Mum woke us up in the morning and announced today was outdoor light day!
Mum says I am the hardest, out of us 3, to get out of the bed in the morning.

Official" light tester" and "bulb checker", Kizzy and Tika

Ah the laundry basket makes a great office for the manager of the light testing

The office is shared with the manager of the bulb checker

Mum erects the ladder, the fact that it was raining didn't deter her from putting up the lights

The things on the front porch had to be moved around to accommodate the holiday decorations. Mum moved my cement stepping stone from the doorway to the area near the entrance of our "wally gates". I was ok with this as Mum explained it will be the first thing people see when they come to the door. (2003! I wuz just a pups then, only 1 1/2 yrs old)

Our signature "2 Cats and a Dog" lawn stakes were moved closer into the porch to stay drier during winter.

The porch entrance way (were my stepping stone used to be). Mum also had to take down the summer hammock swing chair she gots in Mexico.

Kizzy comes to inspect the arrangement of decorations and gives it a 2 paws up

Here is a picture at nights. There is my stepping stone in front of the gates and to the right.
Wow, our little tree (left) is very brights.

And the last picture is the house from the streets. Mum tooks a blurry picture so it isn't very good.

Later in the afternoon my pal Dickens came for a bit of a visit. We wents for walkies in the graveyard near our house. It was kind of warms out and NOT raining! I hads a busy weekend!

    Looks good! Atleast with our rain it has been somewhat warmer :p
    I would still rather have snow then all the rain though.

  2. Hey Winston, that looks awesome! I's likes Christmastime lights. We're decorating here at my family's house tonight!

    We love the lights! They are so festives. We don't have outdoors lights we live in apartments.

    I too get out of beds last. Sometimes Dad will leave me sleepings there (Mom would never dares!) and get me later. I can't gets out of bed without a humans help though, old bones.

    I hope you get your package soon and the sniffer dog didn't steals it at customs!

    Pug Hugs,
