When You Give a Pug a Bone

The life of a pug seems pretty easy. This pug in particular has a pretty great life, she is loved by all of the kids and has become like another child to me. Never in a million years would I have thought that one day I would call a dog my “other kid” but that is how I truly feel about Jenny the Pug.  She even calls me Mama, okay maybe not for real, but I bet she does think it.

The life of Jenny the Pug is pretty simple and straight forward. Mostly she enjoys eating and napping but on occasion we can get her 7 year old body riled all up to play a bit with us while she smiles and nips at us jumping around having a blast. Jenny the pug sleeps, eats, pees and poops. Sounds much like a newborn baby really and Jenny the Pug usually is quite the baby in the household.

One day my daughter pleaded with me to get our sweet Jenny the Pug a treat and so this is what happens when you give a dog a bone … or an ice cream doggie sundae that is….

The Best Family Decision – To Have a Dog {giveaway}

When the boys were younger, they were considered my double diaper duty boys, because they are two years and six days apart. Each had to be changed almost simultaneously and it made for a busy lifestyle while also having a daughter who is four years older than the first born boy.  This was the time my children begged and pleaded for a dog, we decided that at that time there was no way, no how, I could have a dog.

Pug IAMS BandanaYears later, when the boys were out of diapers and all were heading to be in school, I realized that having a dog would really help keep our family unit strong and possibly give the kids some entertainment. I have always loved the pug breed and knew that would be the perfect size dog for a 2, 4 and 9 year old; the ages of the kids at the time. After looking and looking for the right pug to adopt, meaning one that had decent health and wasn’t too overweight, we found our sweet Jenny the Pug. Jenny came to us at age five and was a joy to have added to the family unit.

I recall looking for the right pug, and let me tell you what those pugs all seem to be overweight these days so when someone sees our sweet Jenny the Pug they tend to think she is underfed. There is a rib that sticks out, being assured by the vet that this rib that is sticking out is completely normal for the pug breed, we explain that Jenny the pug is what a “healthy” pug is supposed to look like. Jenny the Pug is a healthy little girl who already knows we are her family. She is our forever dog and waiting to get a dog was the best family decision ever. Jenny responds to me when I call my daughter, sissy and the boy’s, brother. That may sound weird to some, but Jenny truly is like another child to me.

Mother Daughter and pugHaving Jenny in our lives has been such a blessing; she is the sweetest, most well behaved dog in the world. Jenny the Pug has also become our pet vacuum cleaner, which is why I thrive to ensure she is eating healthier dog food and stays up to date with her vet visits.  Having a dog in our home has helped the kids and I be more active, taking Jenny for walks or runs up and down the 300’ long driveway, all over the nearly six cleared acres on the property and bringing her along on car rides when we take walks through town makes for fun family memories.

The changes that I see in my home since bringing Jenny the Pug into our lives are amazing, the children have the responsibility of sharing feeding duty, letting her out to go pee, taking her for walks and much more. The kids and I work hand in hand to ensure that Jenny the Pug is living side by side with us in a healthy, active lifestyle and it is Jenny the Pug I can thank for making being active with the kids a more fun experience!

Jenny the Pug and her Silly-ness

I really never, ever thought that I would love a dog as much as I love my sweet Jenny the Pug. Sure I always wanted a pug, certainly preferred a black pug over the fawn but this sweet dog at age six is such the perfect fit for my family. Jenny the Pug has been getting fed by my four year old son, and it’s making her a somewhat naughty dog.

Not so naughty that she will be on Santa’s naughty list, but naughty enough to the point where I can not eat at my recliner without her begging. As you can see in the image above, she is staring me down. I decided to stare back at her with a stern look and she just had to look away ….

She is so funny, seriously! She kept looking at me out of the corner of her eye but wouldn’t look at me again, until I was done eating my snack and then she pouted….

Yup, she fits right in with us. She acts like a fourth child and she is treated like a fourth child. If she gets locked out of my room she whines and pouts because she is used to sleeping next to someone, but one night/early morning she jumped on my face at 2:30am and anyone who knows me well, knows you do not wake me up startled like that. It doesn’t’ go over well. I had to remove her from my room and finally fall back asleep. Jenny the Pug is a brat at times, but a cute brat!

 

 

Jenny the Pug and her Dog Cuisine

By now everyone should realize that my sweet Jenny the Pug is 100% spoiled, just as spoiled as my kids with love. This sweet dog has just been a joy ever since she entered our family lives. I discussed dog beds and supplies previously but today I am going to talk about the glutinous dog and her eating habits. This pug thinks she is starved to death; some who see her wonder why she is so thin too, for most pugs around here tend to be overweight. Jenny the Pug is not overweight and that is due to her healthy Dog Cuisine diet.

No, my pug is not on a diet, however, she is strictly allowed 1/3 cup of food in morning and another 1/3 of her Savory Dog Dinner in the evening for her Dog Cuisine. Due to the strictness of Jenny the Pug’s diet, she has been able to maintain a healthy weight and enjoys a healthy lifestyle. Jenny the Pug can run with the kids without getting all out of breath, unlike this Dog Mama who gets out of breath way too fast. Can we say out of shape?

Having your dog be served the best in food and the correct amount can really assist in the long life of your loved family pet. I was thankful that Jenny the Pug’s previous owners served her so well and that she was properly taken care of in the feeding area of her dog life.

Happy Birthday to Jenny the Pug

Today my sweet pug, Jenny, turns 6 years old. That’s what, 42 in human years? At least that is what my daughter tells me. The kids want to make her a peanut butter cake and I just want to relax, but we will see, relaxing is usually Jenny’s job.

This dog came into our lives months back and she has shown us that dogs truly do have a personality of their own. She smiles when she is happy…

And she pouts when she is spoken to…

But above all she will let you know when she wants to be left alone, for she is our diva princess of the house and reminds us very often of this fact…

So today we say Happy Birthday Jenny, you are now six years old, time to grow out of the pouting and glaring stage and move on to smiles, love and laziness. Oh wait, she already does that. Well Happy Birthday to the best dog that we could have ever wished for!
