Winston, Grand Duke of Pugsworth, Pug extraordinare!
So, I came across a great excuse to talk about my favorite subject-me. Some other dogs have been posting answers to this list of questions, and I am sure all my loyal fans are wondering what my answers to these questions would be. So here you go:

1. Your age? 1 year, on July 8. (Don't forget to mark that date for the party of the year, happening at Magnuson Park).
2. Your age when came to live with your people? Almost 7 weeks.
3. What color is the collar you’re wearing right now? Black, with white dog bones.
4. Who is your favorite person other than the people you live with? Aunt Lynn and Uncle Ray ... and pretty much any person who will give me attention.
5. How much do you weigh? Approximately 20 pounds, all muscle!

6. Most expensive thing you’ve ever chewed up? Well, when you're on your 10th Loofa, it starts to add up...
7. Do you like other Dogs? Sometimes yes, sometimes no, primarily I like other people like me.
8. Who is your best non-human friend? My yellow duck, the last survivor of my childhood toys. My Daddy thinks my new pink octopus, Calamari, is in the running to replace my yellow duck, but my Mommy doesn't think the duck will be replaced so easily.
9. Squeaky Toys or Tennis Balls? I prefer stuffed toys, shaped like balls, that squeak.
10. Do you like to be brushed? No. And since my parents bought the Furminator, I don't call it "brushing", I call it "torture".
11. Peanut Butter or Cheese? Both...NOW!
12. Do your people cut your toenails? Yes they do, but they usually have more battle scars at the end of the day than I do.
13. Any formal education? No, although I am such a wonderful dog that people often ask me which obedience school I went to.
14. Couch potato or Energizer Bunny? Energizer bunny, although I enjoy taking breaks for naps on the couch several times per day.
15. Five nicknames your people call you. Idiot, the Grand Duke, Wince, Pugsworth, Pug.

16. What is your best trick? With this face, I don't need to do tricks. I am a bit of an escape artist though; I have defeated about 4 car harnesses, and can jump out of my 4 foot high corral.
17. Do you like kitties? I have yet to have the misfortune to come across one of these creatures, so I need to do some more reasearch before I make a decision.
18. What did you have for breakfast? 2 bites of dog food, 27 treats, and some crumbs of people food I found on the floor.
19. Can you hunt (aka have you ever killed anything living)? I am very adept at hunting my stuffed animals. And my parents' feet.
20. When & why was the last time you went to the V.E.T.? About 3 months ago, after I was viciously attacked by my half-brother Gorby. He may have won that battle, but I clearly won the war.
21. Where do you sleep at night? On a pillow, in between my Mommy's and Daddy's pillows.
22. Do you like to swim? I like to run into the water and chase the big dogs, my feet haven't left the ground yet, but I get farther out every time.
23. Can you make puppies? No, but that doesn't stop me from trying with several of my stuffed toys.
24. Your favorite place to visit? Mommy or Daddy's lap.
25. Do you give kisses? I give kisses to anyone, anywhere, unless I am in a kissing contest, in which case I will absolutely NOT give kisses.
26. Can you potty on command? ...eventually.
27. To Cuz or not to Cuz? To Cuz, cause.
I hope you enjoyed hearing all about me as much as I liked talking about me!
Snarf everydog later,
/s/ Winston, Grand Duke of Pugsworth

Well, kittens aren't that bad. They're fun to bark at-if they are the ones who like to play with you. Some cats will run, some will lie on their backs and try to paw at you.

Anyways, I don't like swimming. The parents have thrown me in the pool. You're lucky to still have the option to touch the ground. Not me!

So, how does the furminator work. I hear Mommy might get one.

Isn't talking about yourself the best? :)

I hope your barkday party is the best. I wish we were already living out there so I could go, too. Maybe for your 2nd barkday!

Puggy kisses

Pug Mommy said...

Wow! You can escape from a 4 foot high dog corral? That IS impressive. Nappy can escape from about 3 foot high blockade and we were amazed by that.

I liked all of your nicknames too.... Idiot.. LOL.

Hey Winston, we really enjoyed your answers. It's always so much fun to learn more about our pals.

Regarding your comment on our blog, no, our Dad was not watching the Red Sox willingly. It must have been the only game on TV at the time. The only team that we care about is the Mariners. We should have known that your Dad would be a Cubs fan, that explains a lot about him.

Lynn said...

Uncle Ray and Aunt Lynn wish SOOOOOOO much we could be at your party. Rollo and Parker are begging us to drive over. They have promised to be good in the car and behave themselves around your friends; and we all know what Rollo means by THAT. We all loved you in the hooded sweatshirt. Good photo!

Oscar said...

What organization might that be, Winston? And, who is the leader? Give me more information and I'll give you my decision about being hte Columbus agent.
