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.

I helps with a leaning lilac

Hello everypuggy, Winston heres.

First off, let's say that Feline Fridays has temporarily been changed to Felines in the Garden. These posts will be featured through out the summers as Tika and Kizzy helps Mum in the garden.

So now..... on to ME!

A few weeks ago Mum and I walked outs into the yard to discover that our Lilac tree was leaning. I'm talking  LEANING big times! It leaned so much thats Mum bonked her heads on the branches when she walked through the arbour. Mum said that this was dangerous and was scared it might crash down on me when I am out playings, or lounging while dreaming of Tuni.

So we gots to work to fix its. We discovered that the recent heavy rain and winds had caused it to lean.

See how low it is! Leaning rights in front of the arbour!!!

Normally it is straights up and down, but looks how it leans to the rights! Not Goods at alls!

So off we wents to the garden tool shed to gets the pruner. Mum wanted to prune it to reliefs the weights a bit.

I's guided Mum on where to cuts. I sat on the grass and directed her and made sure she pruned it evenly.
Looks at some of the pretty flowers we cuts.

MMMM smells so fragrants. I wonder if Tuni likes lilacs?

After we cuts off the branches Mum took to cutting the flowers of the clipped branches. I gots a little bored of this as there wasn't much directing Mum required for this, so I broughts a few toys outs.
Here is my orange heart toy.

I barked at Mum to gets her attention but she was so busy trimming the flowers, that she ignored me!!!!!!! I went inside and gots my yellow duck but she still ignored me!

So I wents and gots my red loofa dog toy with the squeaker inside.
I likes to push it against Mum's leg while I chews it.

That worked! It gots Mum's attention to play with me!

After a bit we had to stops playing and gets back to works. I helped her rope up the leaning lilac to the main trunk to helps it stay upright.
It was toughs and Dad had to come out and helps, but we did it!
See the ropes?

We then had to clean up our mess. Mum saved the flowers cuz we liked the smell. There were lots of flowers and we placed them in a large pail.

We then had to bag the branches for the "Yard Clippings Pick Up" from the City of Burnaby.
Do you see it theres! I barked at Mum and she said that if I didn't insist on playing and bringing out all my toys then this wouldn't have happened. It got mixed in with the branches cuz I dropped it on tops of them.

WHATEVER MUM! Just makes sure it doesn't happens again!

Anywho, I was super tireds from helping with the tree that I came inside and had a naps. Mum even tucked me in.
Ah, I's had a wonderful dream about me and Tuni walkings on the beach.

That's all for nows.

In the Garden

Hi everyones, Kizzy here. Well here is our delayed Feline Edition. We actually spent 2 days in the garden instead of just Sunday. Here is what we dids.

On Sunday my grandpawrent granny came over and helped us prep the garden for summers. Of course Tika and I helped like we do every year. We have lots of pictures. We guided Mum and Granny on where to place things and what to trim downs. We were so tired after Sunday afternoon but on Monday we had a couple of more things to do so we gots out there and helped Mum with them. Now the garden is ready for us to bring outs the decorations and solar lights that are in the storage.

So here is everythings Mum gots from the garden centre. We got everything outs and just dug in. Get it "dug in"!

First I directed Mum on what to trim in the herb garden. This section was pretty much ok except for some out of controls lemon mint.

Next I told Mum this section needed works. We had to plant some shade plants in the corner and we needed to stake the Peonies.

We tackled the section behind the bench. This is Tika's favourite spot and Mum and I wanted to redesign it slightly and add some pink flowers. Here I am helping plant the pink flowers.

Tada! here it is. Tika loved what we dids. We even planted that white Daisy for her. It is likes her middle name.... Daisy!

Granny tooks care of this section. See all the impatients. We gots lots of them this year.

Here are pictures taken from Sunday evening. After most of our works.
Um this ones a little blurry!

Here is our pond!

This is where Mum sits and grooms us. You will see in a minute..... more photos coming ups.

A few days agos Mum and I did some rearranging of the water barrels. We tooks the small one from this section and mades a fountain out of it and placed it on the steps. We left the big one here and we are going to puts fish in it next weekend!!!!

Tada! cool huh? Granny sure liked this and so did Dad.

Mum and I mades this hanging planter from scratch! and looks at our roses. We had one already but Mum gots another one.

Hey.... who is that beige guy looking over his shoulder? MOL!

Tika hopped the fence to gets a view from higher ups. She also looked at the neighbours yard to steal some ideas but they have no garden.

Mum and I still needs to get the ladder and trim the Ivy backs. We have to really control this plant as it is not a native plant to this environment and can spread fasts. We have to really be on our toes through out the summers to monitor this plant all the times.

Tika inspects and is very satisfied with her little garden patch.

Mum said we had to include Winston but he did nothing but bring out toys and want to plays!!!!!!

We did some groomings on Monday after our works. Mum says I am a bits odd that I luvs to roll arounds in Winstons furs!

See this is where Mum grooms us on nice days. Winston thinks I weirds too!

I helps Mum puts away the rope. We had to do emergency roping to the Lilac Tree. I will let WInston tells you abouts it in a different post since he helped with this ones a few days ago. It was pretty weird but the tree was tipping overs.

Tika does one last walk around to inspect the works.

Yup, all is good and we can now bring outs the decorations. We are super happys with the works. This is one of our favourite spots..... the catnip herb. Mum says if I don't stop rolling on it, it will never get a chance to grow bigs.  That is ok we have another 3 of them growing elsewhere!

Tah Tah for nows.
