I can't remember what made me think of looking up Shelby's horoscope, but I did, and was amused to find that there are online pet astrologists. I should be surprised, but alas, there's very little on the Web that surprises me anymore. And as the keeper of a weblog completely devoted the adventures of her pug, I am as guilty as the rest for increasing the weird factor on the Web.
According to Shelby's horoscope (Sagittarius) she's going to be lazy this month. Thus far, this is proving to be true. Steven has taken her for a 2 mile walk ever other day. This distance was easily accomplished as a puppy, but now Shelby lags a few feet behind Steven, as if she's just not really into it. Perhaps she would rather nap or sunbathe.
I decided to get a second opinion, and found another horoscope on The Onion. According to their resident astrologer, Lloyd Schumner Sr., Shelby, being smaller than a beagle, doesn't count. Even worse, apparently, I am to die of uranium poisoning.
Perhaps a third opinion is in order. :)

Wow, a two mile walk? I have tried walking the pugs around the circle in the neighborhood, probably about a mile, and they usually give up about 5 houses before we get back to ours and demand I carry them. That usually gets funny looks....

Wonderful close-up photo of Shelby! Hope she never gets those nasty chin/facial zits from chewing hooves, bull p----, and other ewwwww things. Love that you make sure she goes to doggie parks and gets her exercise. Walking close to home should still be done, too, if it helps her stay
trim, fit and alert. You are a very good

Wow! Look at the lenghth of that tongue! Is it real or did Shelby get extensions? (she is beautiful, long tongue and all...)

I come to your website on a daily basis to check on Shelby. She's an adorable little pug, very amusing actually!
I have a 3 1/2 year old pug named Hailey who's a lot like her :)

We've never had to carry Shelby home....yet.
No zits from chewing that hoof we gave her.
And yes, that is Shelby's own tongue. Pretty amazing.

I like to take long walks when it's cooler out, or in the evening. During the warmer Spring and Summer days, I lie down in the grass and then my peeps will carry me home.
