Lola had a big day out on the town today. She & I got to spend some one on one time together. We started off the morning by doing a home visit for a pug rescue. When perspective homes are interested in adopting a pug, they often require a home visit. It isn’t to check for dust bunnies under the beds, but rather to make sure the home is a safe environment for a pug. I always like to take a pug along with me to see how the perspective home interacts with a pug. Lola is my go to gal since Violet is recovering from her dental and Baby Girl is too much to handle. Lola and I also went to PetsMart to get Baby Girl some potty pads. I am so fortunate to spend time with one of my girls!

010811 PUG SOCIAL AT BONE APPETIT (34)

Saturday was our annual Chattanooga Pugs social at Bone Appetit Bakery. Bone Appetit is located on Frazier Ave in Chattanooga and has not only homemade treats, but a wonderful assortment of canine items. They are always so wonderful to host us each January. It is usually too cold to meet outside this time of year and today was no exception-we had snow flurries so we enjoyed ourselves inside. Lola & I got to kick off the New Year with some old friends and meet some new pugs too!

Here is Lola’s friend Jack who was looking very stylish-kind of like a punk rock pug.

Originally uploaded by Papa’s Pugs

Residents of Chattanooga, TN woke up to a White Christmas this year. I could not believe my eyes when we got up this morning. I was so excited, but the pugs not so much. Lola did run around some (she was wearing the pink coat). Baby Girl was just too cold (wearing the brown coat). And Violet was not fond of the snowing falling in her face (wearning the green coat). Do you know how hard it is to get three pugs to potty when it is in the 20s and snowing?

On December 4th, Lola & I were in the MainX24 Parade. This was our second year in the parade. Last year it was snowing, this year it was raining. We stuck it out and joined the Chattanooga DoGood group to walk down Main Street.

We look Violet to the beach for Thankgiving holidays. She is the most perfect pug. We are pretty sure she though that she was adopted by a family that lived in Florida. Sadly our vacation was short lived and we had to go back to Tennessee where it was freezing cold.

Doggie Paddle at Warner Park

Originally uploaded by Papa’s Pugs

Yes, the dogs can go in the pool! I think that this was our 3rd or 4th year for Doggie Paddle at Warner Park. On the last day of the season, Warner Park opens the pool to dogs and their owners to come swimming. There is a small admission fee and all the proceeds go to The McKamey Care & Adoption Center. This year Lola and I went to enjoy some sun and then cool off in the water. I will readily admit that Lola does not love it, but it is fun for me to take her so she endures it.

Lola at PDX

Originally uploaded by Papa’s Pugs

Tonight was our second class at Play Dog Excellent. I just feed Lola enough so that she did not have to sit and watch Baby Girl eat her diner and feel left out. Instead of the hot dog for bait, I had cut up a little bit of the Natural Balance duck and potato food roll. So as great as Lola did last week, she bombed this week. The bait was crumbling into pieces and was just messy. Several times, she acted like she had never heard the word “Sit.” Nancy was so great to work with us after class on the down command. After what seemed like an eternity, Lola finally did it. Now for me to replicate the command at home!

And once again, Baby Girl was mad that we took Lola somewhere without her.
