Stylin' for Italy!

We are headed to Italy tomorrow for the holidays so I had to get all snazied up. You can't go to Florence and Venice with just any old winter coat! Luckily, my human finally took me to the best pet store in the Geneva area, J'adore my dog. It has the same vibe as the Chicago and NYC pet boutiques. You know what I'm talking about, the big treat dish at the counter that the nice shop lady lets you eat when you give her your saddest pug dog eyes! It works every time!

I'll try to post while I'm away but I'm not sure what the internet situation will be. Happy Holidays everyone!

I'm not sure why these letters were on the park grass today but I thought it would make for a nice photo.

Unusual Pug Pillow!

I'm not usually into pug paraphenalia BUT check out this pillow by Annette Meurer! The picture is taken off Decor8's blog.

It's so modern! I want one of my very own. Now I just have to figure out how to get it to Switzerland from Germany.

Canelle the Pug and Miniature Pincher Mix

Meet Canelle! She's a minature pincher and pug mix! I really think I'm in luuuuv!! She is absolutely adorable and the sweetest thang! I met her when I ventured to a different park over the weekend with my human and haven't stopped thinking about her since!

As you can see below, I'm showing her my best side and giving her my suave moves. I think she was taken with me. Stay tuned. I hope to see her again this weekend. Oooh la la!

Shiny Christmas Balls!

I was cruising through the Park Bastion today and happened upon this enormous pile of Silver christmas tree balls. A few were located in the tree but most of them were just piled on the ground. I wasn't too sure of them so I decided not to leave a "mark" on them (if ya know what I mean!).

Enjoying a Chewie

It's raining like crazy out there so I'm entertaining myself with a chewie. My good friend Chico is away in Spain for the next week so it's going to be pretty mellow around here. Peace Out.

Sleepy Tuesday.

I was really catching some Zzzzs this morning until my mom woke me with the flash.

Friday, November 23, 2007


Well there was LOTS of turkey to be had! I managed to make some strategic friends with the turkey carver woman and the left over man.
On a sad note. . . We just read from the pug fram blog ( )that little Maggie passed away Thursday. It is so very sad and we are thinking about her family in this terrible time. It's their second little pug girl they've lost in such a short period.

Maggie needs all our good health Karma!

Maggie at the pugfarm, , isn't feeling well and they can't figure out what's wrong with her. The poor thang! Please send her some good health vibes.

New duds!

Yep, the rents went to NYC and all they brought back was this new rain coat for me. OK, it's nice BUT I really wanted to cruise central park! I've heard about these pug gatherings that are rumored to be near 100 pugs!

Once again I'm not going with the rents this weekend! Something about not allowing dogs in the cabin on flights to the UK. Whatever! I'm off to casa Chico Ferina for the weekend. I'm looking forward to testing out Chico's new dog bed.

Peace out. I'll try to post on Sunday.

Swiss Pig Ears!

I've become a connoisseur of pig ears and I have to tell ya, the Swiss pig ears from Migros alimentation are the best! I think it has to do with the way they roast them and maybe the fact they aren't on as many steroids as the ones in the USA. Anyhoo, they are darn D-lish!

Casa Chico for the Week

While my rents were in America I stayed at Chico's house! We had a great time as you can see.

Wednesday, November 07, 2007


I'm back with the rents at our place. I had a great time at Chico's house and will try and post some pictures of us together. Unfortunatley, I'm having computer problems so it may take some time. Send me good computer Karma!!! I need it.

Another Great Weekend in Lyon

One of my favorite things to do is run around the river park in Lyon! This time I was surprised with a nice planting of clover that was just perfect to "low ride" in!

I also did some adventure trekking. Here you can see me getting dangerously close to the water!

The owner of this boxer wouldn't allow him to say hello. It was just so sad. Ah well, I had a good time anyway.

We also visited a medieval village just outside of Lyon on the way back to Geneva. Man, it was freezing inside the walls of the village and let me tell ya, those streets are hard to walk on with the cobble stones.

Chico's visit!

My good friend, Chico, is over for the day and possibly a night. I'm showing him the fine art of napping during the day. I told him he could sleep in any of the many beds I have around the house. As you can see, he finally settled down with me(the small black spot between the orange and brown pillow) on the couch.

This is my second favorite bed in the day time. I guess he thinks so too.

I rarely sleep on the floor. It's just too common dog in my opinion.

Of course at night this is my all time favorite! The human bed!

Another Sunday. . .

It was another Sunday in Geneva. We went on our usual boat ride across the lake. As you can see, I was not too excited but it was good to get to the park.

Back from my Holiday!

My peeps are back from London town and all they brought me were these pictures of dogs they saw while in London. Argh!!!! AND, one was even a puppy! How dare them! Anyway, I had a blast at Snoopy's house and I'm still recovering with LONG naps!!

Apparently, the great danes name is Louis.

This is Luna a 14 week old curly coated retriever. She's the new pup of my parents friends sister. They were saying something about meeting this one. Humph.

This is just some random Afghan they saw while in the park in London. Geez.

Bath Time!

My parents are headed to London so I'm getting ready to head over to my buddy Snoopy's house. My mom didn't appreciate my aged outdoor funk so she forced me into the tub for a "cleaning".

Sunday Brunch

My mom needs to get her stuff together! We went for a croissant and coffee on Sunday and saw this dog so perfectly comfortable with a nice pillow. I, on the other hand, was sitting on a hard wood bench! Geez! And I thought pugs were supposed to be pampered. Well, she has assured me this won't happen again!

My Meeting with Merlin!

Today started out with an extended lie in as you can see below I was quite comfy before my mom started using the flash! Argh.

We then did our usual boat ride across the lake and ran into this 7 month old pug named Merlin! He really wanted to join us at our table so his owner brought him around for a quick greet and sniff.

I hope I see Merlin around more. We had a nice introduction and check out his tight double tail curl!

Oh HI!!!

I ran into Gizmo at the street fest today. At first I thought he was a strange looking pug but then realized he was a Brussels Griffin. In any case, we had a good romp!!

Visiting Valentin

I cruised up to the Baite area and ran into Valentin. His people run the cafe up there and he gets to run free in the area.

I followed up with a nice nap with my squirrel!

The Good Life!

Just another day in Geneva riding the ferry across the lake.

Sights and Smells in Paris!

This little pug was waiting for the Paris Metro.

We snuck into the section of Luxembourg gardens where dogs aren't allowed to capture this photo.
And, of course we went through a Sunday market near our hotel that had these yummy chickens ready to be eaten. Unfortunately, my mom and dad didn't allow me to indulge! Argh!

BHV Pet Store in Paris

Last weekend we went to Paris and I strolled through the BHV pet store.

Brown Cow Attacks in Berner Oberland!!

It was a bright sunny day in the Berner Oberland area of Switzerland when we began our journey into the alps with my buddy Chico. We first boarded a cable car that took us up to the top and in true pug fashion, had lunch.

We started our decent with panoramic views of the valley. Chico and I enjoyed some nice big cow patties on the way down. It was truly an exceptional hiking area!
However, I noticed these large beasts that looked like gigantic dogs so I had to get a closer look! Unfortunately, they were not friendly and proceeded to chase after me.
As you can see, I made a swift retreat to the safety of my humans and avoided all large brown cows after this. Peace out!!!

Trip to Provence!

Our trip started out with me having to wear this medicated color (as seen below) to help prevent me from getting the dreaded Leishmaniasis that is found in the Mediterranean areas of France. Unfortunately I had a horrible reaction which turned into this itchy rash around my throat. Luckily we only had to have it on for 4 days. I guess I won't be going down there in the summer months again.

While we traveled through the small villages we stumbled on this strange act of people showing you these little piglets and wanting you to "donate" money towards their vaccination fund. I thought the little guy was cute, and my daddy thought he looked like me!

In the town of Nimes we found a street named after me!

Here I am cruising the top of the Chateau neuf du pape castle!

And finally, I'm out in the vineyard showing my peeps the finer points to the Chateau nuef du pape soils. See these large rocks really add to the particular taste one finds in the wine!
