  • BMI my Butt!

    First I would like to send you well wishes of a Happy and Prosperous 2017! I do have to say 2017 isn&#8217;t starting out so great for this pug. It all started with a Christmas present&#8230; This was just my second Christmas and I was looking forward to a lot of toys and cookies.

  • Day 20 – Lapping It Up

    Today I am grateful for just being me&#8230; a pug. Being a pug has it&#8217;s privileges and among them is being a lap dog and I excel at that art. Lapping as we experts call it, requires letting all of your inhibitions go and being really, really pushy. Nobody, nowhere, and no time is off &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/20/day-20-lapping-it-up/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Day 20 &#8211; Lapping It&#160;Up"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=1320&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • Day 18 – Tennis Balls

    Day 18 (don&#8217;t ask where days 15-17 went) of the things I am thankful for takes us to my favorite pastime. Retrieving. Pugs aren&#8217;t known for their retrieving skills, but as I&#8217;ve always known, I&#8217;m a little different from the rest of the pack! In fact, I LOVE to retrieve balls, tennis balls to be &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/18/day-18-tennis-balls/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Day 18 &#8211; Tennis&#160;Balls"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=1284&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • Day 14

    I&#8217;m over half way thru my &#8220;25 Days of Thankfulness&#8221; and I hope you are enjoying my posts. Today I am going to talk about another thing that is near-and-dear to my little pug heart: pet friendly restaurants!

  • Day 13 (ok I may have skipped a few days)

    If you know me, and by now readers you should be intimately aware of my little ideosycracies, you know I am anything but prompt. I live in a whirlwind of social activity, which includes naps, walks, naps, food, and of course lots of petting with my humans. This sometimes leads to, what is known as &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/13/day-13-ok-i-may-have-skipped-a-few-days/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Day 13 (ok I may have skipped a few&#160;days)"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=1219&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • Day 9 – Stuffed Animals

    Today I am thankful for being mistaken for a stuffed animal. No, really, it happens all the time! I&#8217;m known to fall asleep rather rapidly and I love to sleep on all things soft. Around our house that can often mean a stuffed animal or two (or six). Anyway, similarly to E.T. The Extraterrestrial, I &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/09/day-9-stuffed-animals/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Day 9 &#8211; Stuffed&#160;Animals"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=1196&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • Day 4-8 (Because I am REALLY Thankful for This)!

    Ok, I may have skipped a few days of my Worldwide Thank You Tour 2016, but it&#8217;s the holidays and I&#8217;m on &#8220;vacay-mode&#8221;! I&#8217;ve been sipping eggnog and napping by the fire (not really, because I live in sunny San Diego, but I thought you might enjoy the image).

  • Day 3

    On day 3 I am thankful for the power of invisibility. Now you may be thinking, Dolly you are out of your mind! But before you put me in a doggy straight jacket, let me explain. Because of my diminutive and petite physique, I fit into tiny places. And my humans don&#8217;t know I&#8217;m there. &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/03/day-3/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Day 3"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=1153&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • Day Two

    Day two on my 25 days of gratitude world tour takes us to my home. To a round, fluffy, cuddly, soft and warm little piece of this planet I call my bed. I acknowledge I sleep on many surfaces in my home. Couches, backs of chairs, my humans laps etc. but my own little bed &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2016/12/02/day-two/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Day Two"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=1122&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • Day One

    I&#8217;ve been inspired by my many followers posts about things they are thankful for. Obviously I live a life of privileged, but the &#8220;little things&#8221; are still what matter most to this pug.

  • A Word from Your Sponsors!

    As you may be aware, I am a Spokes-Pug for Diva-Dog. In addition to the hectic modeling duties that I handle with grace and panache, I am sometimes called upon to let you know about new things they are introducing.

  • It’s Just Plain Embarrassing!

    It&#8217;s that time of year again, Halloween. Now it&#8217;s true I&#8217;m only 1 1/2 years old so this is just my second year of this but I am speaking on behalf of all pugs when I say &#8220;make this madness stop&#8221;!!!! There isn&#8217;t a day that goes by where somewhere on this planet a pug &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2016/10/05/its-just-plain-embarrassing/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "It&#8217;s Just Plain&#160;Embarrassing!"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=1013&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • What the WHAT?

    We are faced with the age old question? Are pugs cats, cleverly disguised as small and adorable puppies? Or, a fiendishly clever puppy who uses their wiles on unsuspecting humans to garner treats? Cat? Dog? You decide!<img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=1008&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • Winning

    Have you ever had one of those moments where you felt like you were floating on air? If you played the lotto you would win. If you had to kick the game winning field goal you would nail it.

  • Surviving Summer: Pug Style!

    School is out, the sun is hot and I&#8217;m exhausted. It must be summer. And you know what summer rhymes with? BUMMER! Yes, you heard me right. I am not a fan of the summer solstice.

  • Somebody’s Watching You!

    Dear reader, I don&#8217;t know if you realize this, but you are constantly under surveillance. Not by your government, aliens from outer space or the great All Mighty. You are under the watchful eye of your pet. To be more specific, your dog! Dogs sort of slip under the radar.

  • The Fine Art of Begging

    I have been asked by the press a million times on tips to becoming a successful diva. It is well know the world is at my feet. Kibble rains down like a spring shower whenever I bat my eyes and nobody can resist petting me (once I force my way onto their laps).

  • Call of the Wild(ish)

    Spring has sprung at my estate and our land was overrun by nasty vermin called gophers. These are vile little fellows that like to leave behind pillowy mounds of earth where once lived a favorite flower or shrub. My humans are beside themselves, so I decided to take it upon myself to eradicate these unwanted &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2016/03/28/call-of-the-wildish/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Call of the&#160;Wild(ish)"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=789&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • Get a Job!

    For those of you that didn&#8217;t watch CNN or E! News today, it&#8217;s my birthday. Parades and speeches aside, it&#8217;s been a very busy day for me. Not only did I turn 7 today (in dog years), but I also was given a job. Not a &#8220;chore&#8221; but an actual bonafide J-O-B.

  • Clothing Optional – Musings of a Muse

    For some reason people LOVE to dress up their dogs, and in particular, pugs! My human has stuffed my plump little body into everything from a vampire bat costume, a frilly summer frock, a very bad 70&#8217;s disco vest and what can only be described as &#8220;Barrio-Chic&#8221;. I&#8217;m not above the occasional twirl down the &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2016/02/10/clothing-optional-musings-of-a-muse/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Clothing Optional &#8211; Musings of a&#160;Muse"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=655&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • Super Bowl!

    I was told there's going to be a super bowl next weekend! My little heart jumped at the thought of a giant bowl of kibble.<img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=625&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • Good For Nothing!

    Everyone is so impressed with things like multi-tasking. Books are written on it. People brag about it on Facebook. Blah. Blah. Blah! I'm not impressed! <img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=587&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • I’m Better Than A Xanax

    My mom was once again watching Dr. Oz (the family usually bans her from doing this because we end up eating some crazy diet or we find he smearing strange things on her face). <img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=568&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • Cute Is The New Camo!

    While perusing the television with my humans, I ran across a &#8220;nature&#8221; program about camouflage as protection against predators. First of all, there&#8217;s nothing &#8220;natural&#8221; about living outdoors, hunting for your food, and missing nap times. It&#8217;s not just &#8220;un-natural&#8221; it goes against every fiber in my being! Alas, I digress.

  • Modeling: The Hardest Job in the World

    I&#8217;ve watched bits and pieces of &#8220;Deadliest Catch&#8221;, &#8220;Ice Road Truckers&#8221; and &#8220;Ax Men&#8221; and I&#8217;m far from impressed. Although those humans put themselves in harms way to earn a living, nothing is as stressful as being a dog model. Not only do I have to watch my weight, go to the pet salon regularly, &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2015/08/25/modeling-the-hardest-job-in-the-world/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Modeling: The Hardest Job in the&#160;World"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=517&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • My Calling: The Legend of Greatness

    After the last piece of confetti flutters to the floor. After the last strains of Pomp &#38; Circumstance echoes thru the halls. After the crowds depart. A small pug is left to wonder.

  • All That Hassle for a Tassle!

    Graduation day is here! I have not only passed the required doggy-obedience classes, I excelled. Some might say I was a model student. My humans were sufficiently impressed with my skills at &#8220;down&#8221;, &#8220;sit&#8221; and &#8220;leave it&#8221; to award me with a graduation hat this morning. Of course my fashionista instincts were on high alert. &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2015/08/06/all-that-hassle-for-a-tassle/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "All That Hassle for a&#160;Tassle!"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=504&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

    Dog Obedience Class, or as I like to call it &#8220;another way to waste my humans money&#8221; It was a Thursday, just like any other Thursday, except this one would go down in the annals of dog history as the &#8220;bark heard &#8217;round the world&#8221;.

  • Teachers Pet

    I have to admit I sometimes take it to the limit. As I like to say &#8220;I push boundaries&#8221;. I&#8217;ve been known to chew on expensive footwear, relieve myself wherever I darn well please and passive/aggressively ignore my humans call to come. But when I tore up my bed the other day, I thought they &#8230; <a href="https://divadogblog.wordpress.com/2015/07/08/teachers-pet/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "Teachers Pet"</span></a><img alt="" border="0" src="https://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=divadogblog.wordpress.com&#038;blog=35033283&#038;post=488&#038;subd=divadogblog&#038;ref=&#038;feed=1" width="1" height="1" />

  • “Vet” Took on a New Meaning Today

    I have been TO the vet. It&#8217;s a confusing experience that involves needles, pats on the head from strangers, a prance across the scale and a cookie at the end of the visit (not to mention the embarrassing moment when they take my temperature.) I have mixed emotions about the whole process.

  • The Not So Great Outdoors

    There are different types of people. There are the intellectuals that can be found hanging out in galleries using terms like &#8220;existential&#8221;, &#8220;painterly&#8221; and &#8220;abstract expressionism&#8221;&#8230; I&#8217;m not one of them.

  • In The Bag.

    Lately I&#8217;ve been ferried about town in a tote &#8211; I&#8217;m pretty sure I&#8217;m actually being smuggled! There appears to be stores out there that don&#8217;t want dogs in them. Weird I know, but alas it is true. Take Starbucks for instance &#8211; NOT loving dogs in their stores.

  • Dog Tired

    I&#8217;ve heard the term &#8220;Dog Tired&#8221; bandied about by the humans in my house. They use it to describe the state of being too tired to take me on midnight raids on my kibble bowl, playing &#8220;chase me around the yard when it&#8217;s time to come in&#8221;, or basically anything I find fun!

    Some people might say I&#8217;m a diva. Ok, EVERYONE says I&#8217;m a Diva. So it was only natural that Diva-Dog would approach my agent to get me to model for their new campaign.
