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.

    The Joe Sakic street makes us laugh. (especially because Daddy just finishing watching his taped Hockey Night in Canada a few minutes ago. Don Cherry was wearing a very understated jacket heehee)

    My guess is Burnaby, BC. Google-mapped the lake. What an interesting shape it is.


  8. What a wonderful lake to live on! Our guess is Burnaby.

    Glad your feeling better. We are disappointed here as Chloe had her dental last year and teeth removed and at her checkup vet said she had plaque and could use another cleaning?????

    PS Did I ever tell you I was part Canadian?

  9. Oh Winston, dental stitches sound awful! Get well quick our little buddy!
