Thelonious Monk and Roxanne

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Jason and Amanda, and their super cute pugs, Thelonious Monk and Roxanne. With such great names like that, you cant can’t go wrong. Jason has a wonderful story about how Monk became Monk:

Monk told me his name.  The weekend I got him home we were cuddling on the couch and watching tv.  Biography had a show on about Thelonious Monk and it was like the Universe was telling me that’s what his name was.  It just fit him so perfectly.  At the time it was this great big name for this tiny, little pup.  Now I can’t imagine him being called anything else

Roxanne is just about 10 weeks old and is as “puppy” as it gets! She is a ball of energy, clumsily running in every direction and totally soaking up all the attention she can get. Roxy also found my camera quite interesting as seen in one of the photos below where she is trying to bogart Monk’s closeup.

The Katie Wheeler Library, the weather, and lighting couldn’t have been better; and time spent with these great people and wonderful pugs. I couldn’t have asked for a better Saturday afternoon. Thank you Jason, Amanda, Thelonious Monk, and Roxanne! Enjoy.

Picture of the Day – Pugs on White

I like to call these faux studio shots. They are taken on painted concrete and sporting their very colorful  WaLk-e-Woo collars

These by far are my favorite pictures of the pugs.

Animal Planet Videos: Dogs 101: Pug

My DVR has collected with a ton of shows that I have not gotten around to watch. One of those shows is on Animal Planet called Dogs 101.  They explore and educate viewers about each breed from early stages through the older years. They have animal experts and actual owners explain some of the health issues and the type of domestic life they have. It’s a great show if you are shopping breeds or just want to learn.

My DVR finally caught the re-run of the Pug episode originally aired November 29 of last year!!!  This episode has an adorable skydiving pug. What?!? Yes, Bugsy, a New York native now living in Hawaii goes surfing and skydiving with his owner. For his skydive he sports a jumpsuit, goggles, and flying shoes!   Too bad that portion of the video is reserved for the full show, but you can watch a portion of the Pug 101 directly on Animal Planets website or by clicking the image below.

Viva le PUG!!
