Interview with the Pugs

Hey everyone! Today it's MOM (Laura) at the keyboard. I am so so so sorry for the lack of posts and updates with our new family member (Toby), but the last almost two weeks have reminded me of those first surreal days home alone with a new (human) baby.
Toby is a PERFECT little pug and fitting in so nicely with us! Salinger is being a bit turdlier than usual and is a bit jealous and has even started MARKING around the house (ai yi yi!). I REFUSE to put them in belly bands (because we have this awesome custom built doggie door!) so I just follow them everywhere and get ready to pounce if I see a leg start to lift. I'm lucky to get a real shower every day (usually with the curtain open so I can see what they're doing) and am still balancing work on top of all this. LUCKILY I work from home or I would be an unemployed MESS of a Crazy Pug Lady right now. SO....until I can put something better's a video of me "interviewing" the boys after they received a cool new toy from Julie (from The Pug Corral). Thank you ALL for the sweet words, encouragement, commisserating, support and laughs as we've brought sweet Toby into our home! I promise to try and get better with blogging and let Salinger have the keyboard back. I know he's much funnier and more interesting than I am!

Tucker and Lola said...

I so love Sal! That face says it all, can't stop laughing at him. Toby is such a cutie.

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

Sal! He's so worried! Is Mom going to love that cute young guy MORE then him?
(I know, never, but pugs do worry!) ((hugs)) to all of you!

Payton said...

Oh goodness, Salinger! That face! How is it that you actually managed to look even more worried? Don't be upset, your mom loves you so much and Toby won't change that! But if you need a break, come and visit me!

Noodles said...

HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Salinger, DUDE! Can you pout any bigger than that??? I feel for you bruddah. But hey, with time you may like the lil dude.
Love Noodles

Are you sure Salinger's not grumpy because he's a Colts fan? :)
(Mom said I could say that because she's a Vikings fan so we're in the same boat)


Southern Fried Pugs said...

Oh Salinger. It must be tough to be an only pug then become one of two. We weren't thrilled when we went from two to four. Three is okay. Try to remember that love multiplies and adding another pug does not subtract from your love. And you are lucky! There are three laps and only two pugs! Here there's only one lap!

Oakley and Swisher said...

Sal, hang in the buddy. Little brother's aren't as annoying as they might seem. They grow on ya. My brother has that same doughnut bed and we have those same hedgies.

Lots of licks,

Wilma said...

Nice touch with the eyebrow raise when your Mom asked if Toby was your brother!!! My Dad said to tell you he feels bad for you. He also said you're a complicated pug, a lot like Sluggo! Hand in there, it gets better!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Oh Salinger-- your mom is right- you look so pittiful! But you have fun with Toby- I have seen you! I seen you both do zoomies!
In time I know things will all work out. Don't worry Salinger- everything is going to be alright.

dw said...

Salinger, dude! You look soooooo sad!! But it's okay, really! You know your mama will always love you - you're her S-Dog! You don't have to lurk in the can come forward and take some of that camera time! You and Toby are brothers and there's nothing you can do about it (okay, well you can eat his face but that wouldn't be very nice). Stop looking so sad and go play!

Salinger, thebaby is not leaving....

Brutus, Ellie, Pippa and Otto said...

Salinger, dude - I can totally relate! I was an only pug and then the pawrents went out and brought Brutus home. Now, I don't know what I would do without him. Ellie on the other hand is a different story - I am still getting used to her. She is a little cracker dog!

Pugs & Kisses,


pugsx4 said...

Oh poor baby, he does look pathetic. He is so used to being the only pug. I have found that they end up loving having another around hang in there. We adopted a puppy mill boxer two years ago that was so damaged and shy, she did not know how to play or even walk on grass. We had been making slow progress with her for a while but it wasn't until getting our puppy Bubba (pug) about a year ago that she really came out of her shell. She is 7 years old now but plays with this puppy like she is a puppy and she is 7years old! Good for you adopting Toby!

Suzy said...

Sal, dude, you are a funny guy! You have permanent stink eye now when the Tobster's around, huh?? Well both of you are so stinking cute!

And I love the gefilte fish-oy vey, indeed!

I awarded you a PAWSOME BLOGGER award! Check it out on my site!

martha said...

Hi S-Dog!

Just remember: you're the alpha, you're the first, you're the man! By and by, you'll get used to your little bro. Give it time, but keep using that sad face! I bet it gets you treats!!!

Bennie and Martha

Frank The Tank said...

Awwww Salinger, you are so cute, your face is so expressive, I feel sorry for you looking so sad and worried! We all love you here and so do your Pawrents, Toby will be the best brother ever if you just give him a chance, I know he will! You need to take control of your blogging situation, but I understand if you all have been real busy what with the scent marking and all, dude its hard work! Hope to hear from you real soon! Licks, Pugalier love and hugs from your friend Frank x x x x x PS I love that fish! Did you get to play with him!? Mum wants one of those for work, like you she has a lot of moments where pressing that fish would express it all!

Zoe here ... I know exactly where you are coming from! I was an only pug for 9 months ... then I got a brother (Peyton) and if that wasn't bad enough - less than five months after that I got another brother (Webster). I wsa close to being 3 by the time I got a sister (Liberty). I'm not sure I like her much - I have to share my clothes with her! Over all it really isn't all that bad - I'm never lonely. And as long as mom and dad remember who was here first (ME) it's all good! Love, Zoe
