RUNNING

Last night Mom ..as she promised took the 4 of us out to the fairgrounds.....yes 4 ....as in my Daddy also.  WE were so excited about going.  Maggie and Gussie wore their new harnesses...   We tried to take pictures but for some reason Mom just can't get those pictures right ...so again they are not very good.



Maggie and Gussie are ready to start on their walk.  They are already kinda hot and it is only in the 60's.  The fairgrounds are really big with lots of grass and trees and NO TRAFFIC ...usually we are the only ones out there so mom likes to take us out here for some exercise.  Maggie's new vest is a little big on her and may need some altering.  Glue gun or stapler??

Are you ready to go Dad?


I loved my walk!!!  Dad let me off the leash and I feel free as a bird.  Momma was so proud of me cos I walked with her and the crazies.....sometimes I even ran.  She hasn't seen me run in  a long time.  Folks my eyes are getting worse and Momma thinks I can see only a tiny bit so it did her heart good to see my laughing and running and having a good ole time.  Now I am hot though and need to go home.

Come on Maggie lets get in the car!!

Did you know this about pugs?
Pugs can be prone to respiratory problems due to their flat faces.  They get overheated very quickly.

The wrinkly skin that Pugs are recognized by can actually be a health problem as dirt can get trapped under the wrinkles which can harbor bacteria that can cause an infection. Therefore, you should clean out the wrinkles on your Pug periodically.  Momma wipes down our faces everyday before bedtime.

Pugs have ears that fold over which also means that mites can easily hide in the ear canal. Special care must be taken to inspect and clean their ears to prevent mite infestation.  So far we have been very lucky and have never had ear problems.

The way the Pugs eyes stick out from their flat faces leaves them open to getting ulcers on their corneas quite easily. In particular, care should be taken to insure their food bowls are shallow and wide so that their eyes do not touch the sides.  We also have to watch out for sticks, or plants, or anything that might poke us in our eyes.  My eyes stick out a Lot!!

Pugs can catch colds easily and care should be taken to insure they are not exposed to too hot or too cold weather.  We have never had a cold.  Maggie tends to get hot very easy.  Just running around the house chasing Gussie will make her breath real hard.  Momma turns the floor fan on and that helps us cool down.

Pugs need to be brushed and walked every day.  We love to go for walks, but because of momma's knee we haven't went as much as we need to.  Hopefully with nice weather we can get out more.

Have a great Wednesday.

  1. I'm so glad you were able to have some fun at the fairground. My mom's friend has always had Pugs so I did know about some of these health issues.

  2. We are glad you got to go run and laugh at the fairgrounds! Me and Stanley know what you mean by getting hot. We've been getting hot too. That is why we like to jump into the pool, cuz it cools us right down. I cool down with my feets getting wet but Stanley usually has to get his belly wet before he cools down. Sometimes we just like to splash in the pool too.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. cute harnesses and all the info is very good. I will say though that for some wrinkly faced dogs I think you can actually clean the wrinkles too often, or I have had that experience. I used to clean Bobs wrinkles daily and they were always crusty and red my vet sugested I stop and oddly enough the crustiness went away. His theory was that the wiping was iritating it and making it worse. I do still wipe it weekly and Im sure for some pugs and bulldogs daily is better

  8. You harnesses are super cool! Enjoy a run without the leash, it's really great to run without a twolegged kite on the other end of the leash. I wish you will get the bestest pug-walking-weather ever, so you can spend a lot of time on the fairgrounds. Thanks for all the important informations, I had no clue about the eyes, that's very interesting to know. have a super wednesday!

  11. Hey, those were such good reminders for pug owners, and every dog owner, really... I'm so glad you got to go out and play!

  12. Our pug, scooter, loves to run beside my daughter as she rides her scooter. I love the harness. Those wrinkles can get real dirty and stinky fast. Ears have been our problem this year. Nothing seems to be clearing up the yeast infection. Maybe time to visit our vet for a better product.

  20. Mom always says that a tired sibe is a good sibe so walking is great exercise for both the pups and the peeps. Wish we lived near the fairgrounds - maybe we could finally get to run off leash tooz;0

  22. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your article seem to be running off the
    screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to
    do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.

    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
    Cheers

  24. Thank you for all the Puggy info, I didn't know about lots of that. I am glad you havent had ear infections, I get those and they are not nice. My Mommy has a bad knee too so we go for short walks and Sissy takes me on longer ones.

  26. We like it when we go to the park. It's by the highway so the playground is in a fenced-in area which means we get to RUN FREE!!!

    Love your new harnesses ...

    Love Zoe, Peyton, Webster, Liberty & Whitney
