Oh no, We fed Shelby 2 dinners again!

Steven fed her dinner, and then I fed her dinner. No wonder you're 20 lbs Shelby!

2 dinners!

And yet her face seems to say..."How about thirds?"

pugs are just never satisfied... but are always cute :)

If it's any consolation, Shelby is a very svelt little girl. My Bella gains weight like crazy...she was up to 35lbs at one point and we had to put her on weight loss medicine! She's down to 31lbs, but still has more to go. Puggies just love a good meal!

Well if it worked twice, you can't fault her for trying one more time. Shelby doesn't look all that chunky for a pug...she does have a waist. They are little gluttons, though.

...How could that face not tell the truth???
Are you SURE you fed her at all???!! LOL...

Ha..that's funny. Yap, I have done it too
with Winston.

Too funny. I have done that with my pug too.

My Cleo is a heavyweight and will scootch up on my shepherd's feeding stand (about 1 foot off ground) to scarf her lefties!! Shelby has a NICE shape!

Pugs are ALWAYS starving!

LOL! Yeah, we've done that once or twice. I don't even want to know how much food Dory would eat, given the chance. She'd eat until she died!

Hey, I found Shelby twice in this one, made me laugh both times.

HA! Awesome! Shelby surely has earned her treats the hard way. :)

That has happened in my house too! But worse, once I forgot to feed my dogs their dinner! Since that one time (I finally realized I hadn't fed them so they did get to eat but late- around 10:00 p.m.) if they don't get fed by 6:00 p.m., my younger dog will come and find me and run back and forth from me to his dog dish...I guess he's not taking any chances. Shelby is pretty cute!! p.s. I loved your story about the snake...

Winnie- could I ask a question? My pug is currently on Frontline Anti-flea treatment monthly - but with my little one coming, I am not sure if it'll be safe for the baby to be hugging him with Frontline all over his fur.. what do you do for Shelby regarding flea treatment and what are the rules like for Vin when Shelby's just been treated?

there is a new product out from vetri science labs, it's called vetri-repel. it's a totally botanical flea and tick repellant and i'm using it on all my pugs. don't trust those chemical preparations. this product is being used here in virginia with very good results. it's a once a week application. you might want to check it out.

I just treated my dogs yesterday with their monthly dose of Frontline Plus (their first treatment since November) since I found one flea on each of them Sunday night. I've been thinking of spraying them with Neem Oil and combing them daily with the flea comb as an alternative to Frontline. I'm definintely going to look into the vetri-repel. My dogs need something to repel the fleas. Do you think if it protects your pugs from ticks, too? Thanks

yes, here is the website:


you may have to copy and paste this into
your browser. right now, it can only be purchased through a vet, however, i just purchased all the ingredients on e-bay, including the polysorbate 20 (an emulsifier that helps the oils blend well), and i intend on mixing my own. the prices were very reasonable, enough to mix several batches. this web site tells you exactly how much of everything that is in it. hope this helps.

Posted by: nadine and pugs | Mar 30, 2010 4:13:26 PM

I copied the website link and I'll look it up tonight. I'll let you know if I end up making my own batches. Thanks !!!

I'm afraid that I haven't been setting a good example on this front. I used to use frontline on Shelby, but once Vincent arrived, I was nervous about exposing him to it. As a result, we haven't had shelby on any flea or tick control for 2 years. (she does take heartworm regularly.)

Miraculously, she hasn't had any fleas or ticks, but I need to find a solution.

I was thinking about a pill instead of a topical application, but I might look into the links that some of you posted. Thanks so much!

brewers yeast sprinkled on their food helps, too, fight fleas from the side outside, so to speak. i definitely intend on mixing my own; all the ingredients were shipped from e-bay today, total for everything cost about $35.00, and the amounts are enough to mix several batches. i will aim for a total volume of 2 cups, then just do the math for the active ingredients.

Thanks Winnie and all for the replies- looks like we have no solution in sight to keep our little ones safe and yet our pugs flea free..

Posted by: Joel | Apr 3, 2010 4:56:25 AM

oh my goodness your shelby is soooo cute! personally, i have a pomeranian, but pugs are one of my favorite breeds too. i stumbled randomly across your blog and i LOVE it. i just spent an hour enjoying all your awesome posts! :)

I like to think that they aren't fibbing about not being fed, they just have short term memory loss. She does look slender, although that camera angle is very flattering. ;)
