The Days of Yesteryear
Prior to Cosette coming along, things were different. Tectonic shifting had not yet created the gap between the couches which now exists. This meant that there was a sofa bridge that allowed even the most cautious of pug-nobility to explore the surrounding softness of his new home.

After I pointed out Cosette's lack of courage for jumping from one couch to the other, perhaps my loyal reader was thinking something along the lines of 'Winston, don't you know that those in glass houses shouldn't call the kettle black?' Well, as you see, I was not being a hypocrite when I called Cosette out for her cowardice. I not only jumped from one couch to the other, I slept on the gap between the houses, and I was doing that when I was far younger than Cosette.

I would still be sleeping on the gap, but as you can see here I am a little too big for that spot now.

And while it is true that the gap between the couches was a little smaller in my day, that is because I didn't need the gap to walk in between the couches. I just climbed up.

I even climbed up and got through when my parents tried to stop me with a baby gate.

Anyway, this weekend I taught Cosette how much fun it is to go on walks. How much fun it is every once in a while that is; we don't want to go overboard and start going on walks every day or anything crazy like that.

This is me letting my little twirp of a sister take the lead for a while.

The amateur had to take a break and lie down and eat some grass during our walk. [Parent's Note: it was a 20 minute walk]. Overall, she really slowed the pace.

She still had plenty of energy to pose for pictures, of course.

So it's great to see that you're being a good big brother now and letting Cosette take the lead on the walks. The couch thing looks cool. Wish I had that. My couch is to small and I get relegated to the top of the couch cause my humans extend themselves all over the main cushion.

Winston, you're super adorable and obviously a better pug than Cosette. I really don't know how you put up with her at all. :P You're practically a saint.

You are truly a brave and studly pug. A testament to what all pugs should be.

Hi Winston!
Sorry I haven't stopped by in a while. My stupid mom thought it would be great to subscribe to my friends blogs on bloglines, but yours didn't work! I will make sure to keep checking in. I missed you and Cosette!
Love Clover xo

We knew a pug called Napoleon who lived in a wine bar in Denia, Costa Blanca, Spain. He was (is) the most superb dog I've ever met. great character.

Those look like great couches. I sleep on my chair now because Daisy the baby has to sleep on the couch with Mom and Dad at night. When I try sleeping with her up there she licks my eyeballs.

You are a very tolerant good brother. I hope you're getting extra treats for your behaviour.

Pug love from,
