I Hear "Pug-Meetup"
Whenever my parents talk about going to a pug meetup I immediately go into fun evasion mode. It's not that I don't enjoy having fun, I just don't like being accosted by the disgusting beasts that are other undignified pugs.

On Saturday, I was enjoying the morning sleeping in with my parents, when they started talking about the dog park. I was pretty sure they were serious about going to the dog park when they got out my harness and collar, so I shimmied my big body under the bed.

You can see the misery and dread in my eye!!! I hate other dogs.

Finally, Daddy got down on the ground to grab me so I braced for the inevitable.

When we got to the dog park, my parents got out one of my most favorite toys, my Guy. This is a plastic round ball with little horns coming out. It squeaks very loud and bounces very high and I totally love it. I can't get enough of playing fetch with my Guy!
With my Guy, I was actually able to enjoy the dog park a little bit.

I was fetching that Guy like a champ.

Of course Cosette tried to get in on the fun.

I tried to teach her my stare-down technique: stare at the ball with your tongue hanging out and your tail wagging like crazy until, magically, the ball gets picked up and thrown again.

No one does the stare down like I do.
The Stray does have her moments of miniscule cuteness, but they are few and far between. Overall the fetching playdate was a blast.

Winston! That sounds like a lot of fun! I am not particularly fond of going out in my harness for playdates (until I get there) but if I get to play fetch it's the best. I have an orange 'my guy' like yours!
Love Clover xo

Sounds like you had a blast, Winston! And Cossette is getting even more adorable! (if possible)

Oooh a bad cuz! I think they are so cool but the hubby icksnayed when he heard how loud and high pitched they are! :)

Poor Winston... I'm glad the park wasn't too bad and that you had fun,
I can't believe how big Cossette is getting!

Dude, Winston, I think you have some kind of disorder if you hide under the bed merely at the sight of your harness. Were you assaulted at dog park in your youth? I'm glad to hear you like to play fetch too! Did you take to it naturally or need to get taught?

Oh, we love fetch around here so you were very lucky to seemingly avoid other dogs and only play with the cuz. And yes, Cossette is dang cute.

Trust your instincts. First they take you to the dog park, next thing you know, you are up on stage dressed up in a tinkerbell outfit!

Hey Winston. Just dropped by to show your blog some love. I go to the dog park with my best friend Stella. We always have a good time wrestling and playing tug with sticks.
