Who is Smiling Pug?

My photo
Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada
"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.

There were lots more pugs there but Mum had a hard time getting thems to stand stills for pictures (lots of pug scuttles happening by excited pugs).



MY HISTORY LESSON AT THE PARK

So afterwards I came homes and Dad, Mum and me piled backs into the car and headed 45 minutes east to Langely to a park called Derby Reach Regional Park. This park is situated along the shore of the "mighty" Fraser River.



We luvs to explore and this was our first times there. Mum and me wanted to checks out the off leash area. It is huge with lots of grass area and all fenced in. There is even a small beach area for us dogs. I was very satisfied with it and Mum was satisfied that I was satisfied. Mum did not get pictures of the off leash area cause there wasn't much in the way of scenery. Buts..... we did stop further downs at the site of the original Hudson Bay Fort called Fort Langley. It was here Mum gave me my first history lesson.

The plaque that indicates the original Fort Langley site


The fort was originally situated heres. The fort was the original settlement site of the first white peoples in the lower mainland of Vancouver area. It was owned by the Hudson Bay Company and was mainly used for trading. There is no fort left here though. There is now a replica of the fort built not far from heres. It is a tourist attraction and educational site.


Mum tooks a picture of this, it kinda explains things a bit. You probably have to bigify its though to be able to reads it.

Now onto the pictures of me at the edge of the Fraser River.

{oh Mum not a shot of my big pug butt!!!
Tuni.... close yous eyes!}

Me going down the steps to the river

Pretty eh?


Me strolling the beach


Um only problem is that the area is very muddy with clay


Hee Hee, looks at my paw prints in the clay mud!


The Fraser River used to be the site of many Lumber Mills situated along the river's edge. You can still see log boons in the water but there are not nearly as many mills as there were at the beginning of the 1900's


Then we walked back to the historical farm land site.

Mum tooks some pictures of me in fronts of the old buildings.
Me posing in fronts of the old Houston barn. The Houston family was the first family to farm in the area.


The Houston Milk House (me in the doorway)


The Houston House



All this posing gots me thirsty so Mum helped me gets a drink



Wow this is sure a goods view from heres


Mum reads this plaque to me. It is a bit of infos abouts the farm and land
You mights need to bigify to see it betters


Afterward we walked around a bit mores through the trails

Me and Dad


some scenery



Me and Mum

Big trees!



At the end of the exploring is when I saws this!
Um Mum let's not sticks around much longers, ok!



Before we left we did stop at the off leash dog beach
Mum thoughts this tree was cool looking. I thoughts it was cool for peeing on! BOL



I listen while Mum talks. Here we are discussing the Fraser River and how longs it is.



I checked out the beach, it was not bads




Mum and me just before we left to come homes.



I's super duper tired today. I had lots of activity yesterday.

  2. Oursa favorite picture of yous was when you were listening to your mama. It's very important to listen to mamas as they usually have wise things to say...can't say the same for the ol' grumpy man at our house...hehehe. Yousa had a fun adventure...maybe you and Tuni can hang out there when you both gets togethers.

  3. What a wonderful pug meetup :) Your friends look like fun! What a grand adventure you had afterwards. Mom loves everything historical - the city she grew up in was named after the fort that was built there and has a replica too.

    Love all of the pictures, but the one of you and your mum is the best :)

    Pugs & Kisses,

    Yoda & Brutus
