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.

Dark Clouds on the Mountain

On Friday night we tooks an evening drive to Cypress Mountain.
It was a little on the cool side but no rain.......
or so we thoughts!

In the car, I sat on Mum's lap and away we wents.

Cypress Mountain is popular for skiing buts it has a cool lookout.
The lookout is where we were headed.

Dad commented on how "black" the sky looked over the mountain.

Checks this outs....

At the lookout a big dark cloud loomed overhead.
Mum popped me up on the wall for a photo with the city of Vancouver behind me.

Can you see the rain and cloud in the background?

 Um guys..... I thinks it is gonna open up and pours on us!!

Yup it did.... it just poured and poured rains.

I got smarts and headed under a tree to stay dry.

Here is the rain storm.
And it quickly ended our trip to the lookout.

Back into the car and home we wents.

Cat Chat with Kizzy

Oh Hi everyone!
Kizzy here today

I have taken control of the computer. Winston is off planning and preparing for the next Fire Hydrant Club for Boys meeting. Tika is off spying trying to get info on what was in Sluggo's report.

So today I am here to Cat Chat about Catnip gardens.

Tika and I have a catnip garden specially designed for us.

(Mum here.......  Ok... hold on Kizzy...... tell them how you got this garden!!)

Oh yah right.... I wouldn't stop rolling on and flattening the plants in that section of the garden, so after numerous plant deaths and lots of "KIZZY NOOOO!"  Mum fenced off a special area for me us.

Today I decided to stroll on out and lounge around in the garden.

Ahhh I luv to feel the sun on my belly.

All I need now is a cool drink with one of those umbrellas in it.

Right next to the catnip garden is Mum's NEW lavender garden.
(used to be the veggies, we will post about that disaster some other time)
So while I lounge and roll around on catnip with the sun on me I also experience the scent of lavender.

It is so very relaxing that
I then sauntered over to the patio for some relaxing back rolls

 Roll to the right.....

Then roll to the left.....

Throw in a nice stretch and a bit of a wash......

Yup life is great when you are a cat with a catnip garden!

Do any of you cats out there have a catnip garden?

In the Maple Tree...... Intruders

Hi everyones, Winston heres.
 So I guess yous is all wondering abouts what got the girls all excited? Well before I tells you I want to say that lots of yous commented on your shampoo for bath times. Oatmeal seems to be very populars.

Ok so the tree......

The girls luvs to go outs into the garden. They just likes to sit and gaze around or roll around in the catnip garden. Well the other day Mum went to check ups on them from the upstairs bedroom window.  As you may remember.... this is what Mum saw....

Mum ran down to the livingroom window to gets a better view.

 I was wondering, where the heck Kizzy was!!!!

From the livingroom view.......
Oh look there is Kizzy, she luvs to sit under this tree. But what is she watching?

looks in the maple above Tika...... SQUIRREL!
He is hidding in the branches.

Tika says enoughs is enoughs, I am bored of this.
(Mum says Tika is a terrible stalker anyways, I mean she sits right out in the opens, bolt upright swishing her tail, right up in front of the squirrel.... not much camouflage if you asks me!)

Kizzy on the other hand is a fabulous stalker!
Looks at her technique, low to the ground, silent, no swishing tail, hidden under tree and not moving a muscle except for her eyes.

Oh looks,
the squirrel has come down from the tree. I guess it figured all is good now that Tika has left.

Oh now it moves to the grass. Looking for the fallen bird seeds

Hey what is that rustling aboves?
OMP looks 2 more squirrels!!!!

Oh looks now.... one of the squirrel pals has joined his buddy in the search for seeds

Oh this is very exciting for Kizzy!

she crouches even lower

The two pals investigates further into the grass

Hey look at him goes... getting closer to Kizzy!
Wait.... he spots Kizzy!

"Run away, Run away" he yells... "quick retreats, retreats".... "all squirrels back into the tree NOW!"
Hey what is that noise?
Mum is tapping on the window!
Mum blew its for Kizzy.
That tapping scared the squirrels aways!

(Mum says that she won't allow Kizzy to catch anything, Years ago..... Kizzy cornered a squirrel once, in the yard, between the bushes but Mum intervened and it gots away. Oh boy was Kizzy mads!)
Well Kizzy is mad that Mum just tapped on the windows! 
 Kizzy came inside and gave mum a **raspberry**

 Kizzy complains that it isn't often she gets a chance to practice stalking and Mum has to ruin it alls!!!!!

Mum says....."really Kizzy, thinks about it..... what would you have done if you had cornered 3 squirrels?"

Good Day everyones!

Stubby. It was his 14th Birfday yesterdays!
Happy Birthday buddy!
(Visit Tiffy to see how they celebrated in Memory of Stubby)

Ok so this is how the report all started.....

Dad tooks me to pick up Mum from her exercise class. While waiting in the car I enjoyed some head scratches and ear rubs.

Mum gots into the car and Dad said.....
"hmmm Winston smells like dog, he is a little smelly"

Well that did its!
 (thanks Dad!!!)
Mum whisked me home and into the dreaded bath!!!!

Mum gots the tub filled and prepared my blue towel, treats and Shampoo.

Let's talks Canine Shampoo today!

I use Earthbath.
It is earth friendly.
The company does NOT test on animals.

Mum gets me the one for Light Coloured furs.

 This is what they say abouts their product.....

We blended a special selection of natural minerals (known as optical brighteners) with the essence of lavender. This wonderfully aromatic and mild shampoo naturally brightens the coats of any dog or cat with light colored markings or highlights. Additionally, it is safe for any colored coat and will leave your best friend's coat shiny, soft, plush, and smelling naturally fresh. Will not wash off topical flea applications. Safe for all animals over 6 weeks. Soap free.

If you wants more info abouts their great earth friendly products please stop and visit their website

Once I am ins the tub...
(this is a huge efforts on Mum's part as I weight 38 lbs and Mum has to lifts me in.
We don't use the people bathtub anymore on account that my furs clogged the drain! This being very expensives cuz it meant a call to the Plumber!)

Mum wets up my furs....

Then she lathers in the shampoo being carefuls not to gets anything in my eyes or ears.

(Note: see the shampoo lathers just a littles not too much which is goods for me and the environment)

I gets a massage, then it is time to rinse.
In between processes I gets snacks and lots of "good boy"

After the rinse cycle I am ready to gets out.....

Oh hold ons... I have to gets my ears cleaned first

Okays, now I can gets out and towel dried offs
I get overly excited and run in circles and try to bites the towel.

Mum dishes outs the last of the treats and more "good boy"
