HAPPY BIRTHDAY WINSTON!! [Parents' post]
We find it hard to believe but our little bear is 2 today. We have come a long way with the monster, and he has gone from a 4 pound puggy puppy that was afraid of the world to a 27 pound puggy that is afraid of the world.


This is the dignified Winston that all people have come to know and love.

This was the hamster that we picked out at almost two weeks old. We picked him because he blew snot in our faces and let us hold him on his back like a baby. Incidentally, this was the last time we were ever permitted to hold him on his back ... but he still occaisonally blows snot on our faces.

He was already snuggling with us on the drive home.

Soon after he was crowned Grand Duke of Pugsworth.

He quickly made himself at home, and let us know who the bed really belonged to.

He also quickly got started on his blog, so he could share his worldview with everydog.
We have gone on many adventures in the past two years, way too many to list in one post. The Doggie Diner, Easter egg hunts, the Animal Planet Expo, and many trips to the dog park and pug meetups are among the best.

Playing ball at the dog park has always been one of Winston's favorite outings.
He didn't seem to enjoy the swimming quite as much, but of course we were very pround of him for how well he managed to swim to shore.
He may not always act like it, but he is our little angel.

Happy Birthday to our handsome boy!

WINSTON! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
WE ARE CATSES, BUT WE THINK YOU ARE OKAY! YOU LIKE TO SLEEP AND STARE AND THOSE ARE BOTH FINE HOBBIES!

YOUR SOMBRERO IS VERY FANTASTIC!
YOU SHOULD DRESS THE STRAY UP AS A TACO! BUT NOT A HOT DOG, BECAUSE THAT HAS BEEN DONE A BAZILLION TIMES AND YOU DO NOT HAVE A HAT TO MATCH A HOT DOG!

RIGHT ON, MISTER GOOGLE-EYES!

Hi,
I recently added a post to my Heart of Dogness blog called “Billions of Pug Blogs”. Yours was one of the blogs I linked to. Nice stuff you’ve got there, by the way.
