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.

Olympic Mania!

Hi Every puggy,
First off Mum says we won't change the Valentine background until the Olympics is over. She says cuz it is red and white our Flag colours! Oh Mum!)

Well today was the days! I went into Vancouver to see the Olympic stuff.
Mum gots me up early, she had a bit of trouble getting me outta bed!




Once I was up we got in the car and drove into the city. We found parking in an area called "Gastown". We walked around the city checking things out.

The first stop was the steam clock in Gastown. This is a very popular tourist attraction so Mum had to have me pose in front of the clock.




We then walked down to the Olympic Cauldron. Mum keeps calling it the "torch"!
Here is me with my flag. I am a proud Canadian Pug!



Looks at the cauldron! There it is!





Here is Mum and me in front of the fence.


One thing I should tell you is that I sure draw a crowd. So many people wanted to takes my picture! They thought I was cutes. We decided I had to leave the cauldron area as I was drawing too much attention that a crowd was blocking the viewing area!!! Here I am in the crowd.


We then headed up to Robson Square and the Art Gallery area where some of the venues were being held. There is a zip line there and large TV screens and an ice rink.

Here I am on the street heading up to the square.



We stopped at the Art Gallery for some photos and to see the Official Count Down Clock.

The Count Down Clock. It is now counting down til the start of the Paralympics.

Then we went around the corner to Robson Square



Here is the zip line that you can ride for free if you want to stand in the 7 hour line up!!!


Mum thought these steps were cool!


Me and Dad waiting in the Square (waiting for Mum - bathroom!)


close up of me!


Mum liked this too! A building downtown.


We then walked down Granville Street which was closed to traffic. This is the major street downtown and has lots of shops on it.

(this was taken just before we met Anna Olsen the lady with the cooking show on TV,
her husband tooks a picture of me. They used to have pugs too.)


Mum liked this sign! Whatever!

Here are some shots Mum tooks of the waterfront near the cauldron.



Looks to the left of the picture just beside the building.... you can just see the Olympic Rings that are situated out on the water.




I was so tired for the excitement of all the attention I gots that I was ready to go home after 2 hours.
Mum took this just before I gots back into the car.



Here I am in the car on the way home.

Now I am just hanging at home relaxing and thinking of Tuni!
I am exhausted but I had so much funs!

  4. Hi Winston! I didn't want to get out of bed this morning either because I was so cozy comfy under the covers. Mom left me in bed when she left for work so lucky for me I got to sleep in.

    It looks like you had so much fun today. How exciting to have the Olympics in your backyard. And to see the torch up close is very cool. Vancouver is such a beautiful city and the whole world is experiencing all it has to offer.

    I'm so not surprised that you attracted a crowd while you were out and about. Us pugs prove time and again that we are the true stars of any show!
