Here is one of my very favorite pictures of Simon pug. He was about 8 weeks old and just so tiny. When I clicked the picture he cocked his head just perfectly which he still does so often. This was one of the few times I could actually get him to sit still. He was (and is) such a little imp!! But he's my imp!

Here's chubby Simon pug. The diet is going well so far. Yeah, easy for me to say. I'm not the one eating low cal kibble daily. He begs constantly for anything we are eating. Even if I am in the kitchen cooking something, he comes running in because he can smell it. Poor baby, I do feel bad for him! I just want him to be healthy and with me for a long time. By the way, I know the harness looks tight. I've taken it off and loosened it since. I swear I'm not using it as some sort of puppy torture device.

This as of late has become one of Simon's favorite basking spots. At the right time of the day, the sun shines in and it's nice and warm. The blanket too is super soft and he can sit and watch the traffic go by and lean up against the kushy pillow. So I can see why he loves it there. Actually the question I'm asking myself now is why is he sitting there and I am not?! Spoiled doggie!!

Simon has this thing where he constantly has to be underfoot regardless of where I may be. Yes this means he follows me into the bathroom when I need to "take care of buiness" if ya know what I'm saying. So I've come up with the plan that I put him into the bathtub were he cannot get out of yet he is still right there with me, sort of like a coach or even a cheerleader if you will. I must admit it was a bit unnerving at first, but it's surprising how fast one can get used to it. Some may think this is strange, possibly TMI, but in my household we like to call it "Party in the Bathroom"!!

One of the only ways to keep Simon quiet and still is if I have a chewy bone in hand. So whenever I sit down on the couch I make sure that I have one on me. This picture makes me smile because it looks like I'm holding a microphone and he's ready to sing his portion of the duet?! He dances too ya know!

So Simon loooves the vacuum, I don't know why. I can't stand the damn thing. Whenever I turn on the vac he immediately runs into the room and starts running all over the place. He does the "pug scuttle" all around the coffee table. It's really cute! He got a little wound up the other day and when he gets really hyper he has a tendency to bite. Right now I have bruises all up and down my arms and all around my ankles from said biting. But we called a truce and called it a day with the vacuum.

It's funny because Simon hates getting baths yet when I am in the tub he's right there hanging out next to the tub with his paws on the edge. He jumps and jumps and up until today he couldn't jump into the tub. But today I was relaxing in the tub and he was there with me bouncing at the side when all of the sudden he bounced right in. I think it surprised us equally, we both just kinda sat there for a minute until we realized what exactly happened. So I scooped him up and dumped him out and he proceeded to track wet puppy paws all throughout the house. I proceeded to drain the water, draw more water and finish my relaxing bath....Simonless.

I like to take Simon downstairs when I am doing laundry in our building basement. He always has to beat me down the stairs, turn around, and wait for me. If I go down first, he will refuse to go down behind me. I have to acually go back up the stairs and then let him go down first. Same thing with going up the stairs. He's gotta be first. I like to think that this is because he loves me so much and wants to go first to protect me from whatever may be ahead of us but I've read that this is actually a dominance thing. He seems to think he is the "alpha dog". For such a small dog, he has a huge presence.

Sothe cats have been fairly stressed out lately, a large part of that is due to Simon pug. So I decided to give them a treat today. I put the dog in the other room and got out the catnip. Oh it was bliss for them. (See top 2 pics) They just totaly chilled and had so much fun--like they were kittens again. Rollin around, playin with toys, actually actin happy. But then (dun dun dunnnn...) Simon managed to get out and it was business as usual. The window sill standoff. Look at the way they are looking at him, it's classic.

We have 2 cats as well as Simon pug. Gulliver and Sasha have not responded well to their new housemate. Basically wherever he is, they aren't. They spend lots of time in tiny hiding places or in the highest point of any given room. Even after a year of cohabitation, the brood is in constant battle. The cats just want to be left alone and puppy just wants to play. It's really hard to watch sometime. Poor kitties!
Simon sleeps in a crate at night because it is impossible for him to settle down and fall asleep in bed with someone. Every morning he acts as my little alarm clock when I hear the pitter patter of his little feet tapping around outside the bedroom door. Sometimes he pokes his paws underneath the door and plays with my toes as I 'm getting ready for work. When I open the bedroom door, he prys his little head into the ajar door until he gets all the way in. He so loves me!
