PUG BIRTHDAY!


today is a very special day! it's louie pugs first birthday. i think, unless you have a pet you're completely in love with the idea of celebrating an animals birthday will be a weird one. to me and my fellow crazy-pet-ladies i'm sure it's upmost normal. especially his FIRST birthday. that means he's been in this huge world for an entire year!

i'm not sure if it's just because i have one or not, but i've noticed a lot more love for pugs lately. lots of shops seem to be have pug shaped designed t-shirts (primark, topshop, internationale, republic to name a few!) and lots of people want to own them. (the t-shirts, and the actual dog) i obviously think it's amazing and if i could i'd have a million more pugs in my life.

that's not to say being a pugmother is easy. he's incredibly demanding, he is pretty much a baby. i can't move without him following me and if i stand still for long enough he sits on my foot! even when i shower he grabs a toy, follows me upstairs and lays on the bathroom floor until i get out. he can be super naughty at times - he ate my mums diamond earring a few weeks ago, whoops. but... it's just impossible to be angry at him. look at his little face.

reading victorias post about how her pugs lily and lola came into her life made me cry a little bit. before i got louie i registered to the pug welfare and rescue waiting list to adopt a pug, i think at the time the waiting list was way over a year long.. i haven't heard anything since. i know a lot of people have massive problems with breeding dogs and paying lots of money for them when so many other dogs need rescuing but i think once you have your heart set on a particular breed you just have to go with it.

one thing i will say though is that i in no way condone backyard breeders or puppy farms. i did a lot of research into local breeders and couldn't find one i was happy with at all.. there's a lot of shady people out there. i was about to give up hope when my friend told me her pug had only gone and got himself a girlfriend! she lives opposite me, so louie and his dad play together a lot. they're so sweet together, apart from the occasional hump they get on like a house on fire. his dad brought over a birthday card for him earlier, and louie sent him a fathers day one! they have the same 'bark', their tails curl in the same way and they even sleep in the same position.. b'awwwh.


i totally did not intend to write so much about my dog. SORRY. basically HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOUIE!

  13. Is it wrong that I'm getting emotional after reading this?! I lvoe pugs some much and am counting down the days until I'm out of uni and settled down so I can get one of my own. I keep looking at pug welfare but appreciate the waiting list is huge and, like in your case, I may not even hear back from them. I have the same worry about breeders, which is the main thing that puts me off getting one.

    Happy birthday Louie!
