Who is Smiling Pug?

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.

The not so good news is my sister Kizzy. She isn't well right nows. She gots her blood checked and she has very high thyroid levels, she has Hyperthyroid disease. Mum thoughts something wasn't right cuz she says that some of Kizzy's habits have changed slightly. Mums been stressing all weeks.

After lots of phone calls Mum says, now Kizzy has to goes to a "kitty spa" for 6 days to gets special treatments.
Dr Karen (our cat vet) told us not to worrys that Kizzy will be just fine after her treatment.
Kizzy will be going to Northwest Nuclear Medicine.
After her treatment she will no longer have the high thyroid and will be fine for the rest of her life.
I wanted to go with Kizzy to the "spa" but Mum says no, only Kizzy can goes. Mum says it is expensive.

I talked to Winston abouts this. I am super worried. I have never been apart from Kizzy for my whole life and now she will be gones for 6 days!!! She leaves on this Wednesday! What am I goings to do?

WInston told me nots to worry. That he will be heres and Kizzy will be backs in no time.

Mum says it is quite goods..... I will let you know what I thinks after my blankets are washed this weekend.

Here is where we keeps the new garbage can and recycling stuffs.
In the carport.

Notes about our Garbage:  The city picks up limited items for recycle.
The new garbage can is special.... the system is now automated. The truck picks up the can with a mechanical arms (Tika always growls when she hears the truck coming!)
Mum had a choice of Smalls, Medium or Larges. Mum choose Smalls. She says not only do we gets a discount in property taxes but it encourages us to make less garbage.
If it don't fits in the can they won't picks it up!

Here is Kizzy and me helping Mum sorts the recycle stuffs

Here is the recycle truck picking ups

For stuffs that the city won't picks up. Well, Mum and me takes that to the City's recycling centre.
The location is so close, only 5 minutes by car!
Here I am helpings with sorting the returnable drinking containers, and gathering ups the plastic bags.
We gets money backs for returning the drinking containers! WhoHoo more money for treats and toys!!!!

(notes here: some of the bags are the ones Mum used for her luggage packing when she went to Mexico, see.... we now recycle thems)

Here we are at the City's recycle location. We can recycle lots heres. Paint cans, batteries, old appliances, electronics, plastics of all kinds, paper and tons more stuffs.

Just finished dropping of the plastic bags

There is even an area for composting.

Sexy Whip Cream Sunday..... Here is to you Penny!

Hello everypuggy

Todays I got my friend Dickens and went for a nice long walk through Central Park.
After, we headed over to Starbucks.
Dickens' Dad went in and ordered our drinks and the extra whip.

After quiet thoughts and dedication we devoured our whip.
It was super tasty. The people at Starbucks even served it to us on a plate!! 

Here are the pictures......

Waiting while the drinks are ordered (me in the back, Dickens in front)

A sexy celebration of life with whip cream. I officially declare..... Sexy Whip Cream Day

Hi everypuggy,

I am sads today.

But I ask you this......
Is she really no longer with us?
Her little heart has ceased to beat but I know that her pug body served as just a shell.
Her spirit and her soul is everywhere around us and always will be.
Although we can not physically see or touch her any longer, she is, without a doubt, still amongst us.

We cry and feel sads. It is hard to smiles. It is hard knowing that we won't be able to physically sees her again.
She would want us to continue to smiles, and right now this seems so hard to do.

But.... She is still with us in spirit and is asking us one thing.....
Celebrate her memory.

So with this I request and declare that this Sunday April 18th to be "Sexy Whip Cream Day", Penny style of course!
Go on.... get your pawrents to leash you up get to a Starbucks (or your closest coffee shop). Order that Venti Mocha full of calories and tastiness and ask for extra whip cream. Sit down and enjoy the whip cream as it touches your lips and creates happiness in your mouth. Then paws to think of Penny and celebrate her life.

 Make sure you posts about it afterwards, take pictures!

We are all here for you.

Feline Fridays 3rd edition

Hi everykitty,

Kizzy heres. Tika is curled up sleeping right nows.

We are super glad Mum is homes from her disappearance. She was gone so longs. Looks what we gots from Mum when she came home. New feeding dishes!! She gots us each one but they are both the same pattern so there is no bickering.

Aren't they pretty?

Here is me dining from my new dish!

After supper I went out with Mum into the garden to help her with gardening.
I thought I did a super job of helping Mum with the plastic lid by preventing it from blowing aways.

(mum's note: there was not a trace of wind blowing tonight!)

This is what we are growings

I helped Mum prep this container for snap peas. I was very diligent about watching Mum sow the seeds. I thought I was a good helper.

(Mum's note: I am not quite sure how watching translates into "helping", I mean I had the dirty hands, while Kizzy was spotless)

This concludes this weeks Feline Friday. See you next time.

Back Home..... Mexico Post card anyone?

Hello everypuggy!

I am backs! Well Mum is backs which means I am backs on the computer. Phew what a long weeks I hads. Dad and I did some great stuffs. Mum even commented on how the house wasn't too much of a man-cave upon her returns! I went on walks with Dad and spent the night at my pug pal, Dickens', home. Dad had school and had study so I spent time lounging while thinking of my Tuni.

Before I go any furthers.... if you are interested in a post cards from me, Mum brought some backs for me to send to my blog friends. Email me you address if you wants one, or leave me a comments.

I now forgive mum for going aways when I saw that she returned with some Mexican snacks for me.
Here I am having my new snacks, Barky's Beef strips, while mum has coffee from her new mug she gots.

This is a picture of the place Mum stayed at. It is one of the few pictures she has as this was taken on her blackberry and not her camera. (see note below)

Mum went to a town called Bucerais. She luved it there. There is a place there called Sandrina's, (You gotta check out their website!) that Mum luved to eats at. The owners are originally from Victoria BC..... Anyways they had a pug named Rosie! And the owner's sister had two pugs as well!

This is Rosie with her brother Jimmy!
Naturally Mum was all over the pugs and luved seeing them all.

Dad and I went to get Mum last nights from the Plane place. Here I am waitings for her.

Here I am in the car heading homes. At first Mum put me in the back seat but later I insisted on sitting on her lap insteads.

One last picture of Mum..... My auntie gave Mum a pug card while they were in Mexico.
Look at what Mum did with its! Mum is funnys.

that is all for nows.

The sad news is that at the check in at the Puerto Vallarta airport, the procedure is to manually have your luggage inspected by check in employees, before it is weighed and sent on the conveyor belt to the planes. Mum was very suspicious of the guy that inspected the luggage, when he enquired if there were any electronics, cash or jewellery in the luggage. Mum has been to Mexico many times and never had this question before. They also thought it odd that he insisted on taking the luggage to the check in counter and that he specifically insisted on a certain counter. Once Mum gots home she noticed that her camera had been removed from the camera case that was in her luggage. It is now realized that the check in guy and the baggage checker were working togethers in stealing from luggage! They stole her camera and all her pictures that were on it.... are now gones! She is now in the process of submitting a claims to West Jet loss prevention regarding the incident.
