We made the two hour drive down to the breeder today to visit Winston and it was completely worth it. He's huge (2 1/2 lbs) and our breeder thinks he'll be sufficiently weaned and kitty litter box trained to come home a few days early. Here are some pictures that just scratch the surface of Winston's pug cuteness.
Winston being goofy.
He stands out in a crowd.
I hate this picture but Ana thinks it's cute that he was trying to eat my glasses.
Ana and her baby.
He spent a large portion of the time trying to suckle our fingers, it was cute but may not be a sign of high intelligence; but if we wanted intelligence we would not be getting a pug.
The orange IDs him (it's a harmless marking paint the breeder has) because he and his brothers look alike.
Ana scolding him for the first of what is sure to be many times.
Looking cute, tired, and small.
He didn't like the camera at first, but he seems to have become very photogenic by the end of our visit.
Saying goodbye (just for now). We played with him for an hour straight and it just exhausted him. Here he sleeps in my arms, once again.
Trying to force himself awake to smile for Ana.
A brief second wind, or a hug goodbye.
We have to go to Texas to visit my family and won't have posts for about two weeks, but loyal readers (both of you) stay tuned for Winston's arrival (we think about August 23 now).
