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.
