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.

Announcing....... "Sweater Day, The Green Stubby Way" Contest

Finally..... the contest we have all been waiting fors.
February 17th, 2011

We have been spending lots of times preparing for this event.

With the passing of our beloved friend Stubby we thought long and hard as to whether we should carry on the Green Stubby Reports. The feed back from friends was that YES it should continue.
Most importantly Stubby's Momma said yes.

We have decided to celebrate the life of Stubby and our planet by holding this contest.

All those who knew Stubby can help celebrate by pawticipating in this event.
For those who did not know him he would have been thrilled to have you pawticipate.
You can stop by Stubby's blog to experience the "life of Stubby".

Spread the word!
Show Stubby how much this planet means to you.
Let him know that he may be gone in body but
not forgotten in spirit.

Get your sweaters out!!!!
