Wordless Wednesday

Mom says she rests her case!

Tattle Tale Tuesday

This is me.

This is me exerting myself.

This is the gap mom and dad say I slip through to get onto the porch, tip over the garbage can and go to town.

Seriously, do you actually think that I am that intelligent and devious that I can get onto the back porch, tip the garbage can over, eat whatever I want and then get back into the kitchen so that when mom comes home I am in my bed? With my sister?

Evidence! I demand evidence!

Shia Labeouf has nothing on PlusOne!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Life is good when you are an adored pug.

The Weekend!

I'm hoping for lots of this, this weekend. Especially since mom went to the library and has a dew good (hopefully) books to read.

Thursday Three

Or four or five...

Don't bother me, I'm sleeping.

This is why we wear glasses when Nerf fighting.

Agent 00 I don't think so!

It's past my bedtime.

Dreaming sweet dreams.

Gives Me Hope

Mom found this website today. It Gives Her Hope. I think it may do the same for you as well.

Monday Again

I think the title says it all.

Saturday, September 19, 2009


Mom received a really nice compliment from her teacher last night in class.

Mom told her partner that she did a nice job on something and mom's partner said something to mom's teacher who said "That's why people feel good after working out with Mrs. (Mom)."
Mom was sort of stunned. It was such a huge compliment. From a man of few words. It was one of those "treasure the moment" moments.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

You don't see me in this photo anywhere, do you? That's because I'm hiding. With all that hardware, it's not safe to be out in the open. Let me know when it's over, okay?

The Two Safe Places In The House

There are two safe places in the house, when mom is in a cleaning frenzy, like she was yesterday.
This is the first one.

This is the second one. Anyplace else is fair game.

And this is what happens when PlusOne takes apart six double stuffed Oreos trying to make a really big Oreo.

I wonder if he had a hard time getting that in his mouth?

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Oh yeah, mom passed. The last test is in 4 weeks. Mom has to do 40 push ups. She is up to 28. She figures to increase by 5 every week and she will have it made.

Lucky Learns A New Trick

PlusOne thinks that since I sleep on the top of the sofa cushions, Lucky needs to as well. Since Lucky rarely jumps on the sofa, PlusOne put her on the top of the cushions. Where she promptly fell asleep.

I guess I may have to share now. Well, I guess the sofa is big enough.

Mom learns the results of her last test today. She probably passed, but she knows she did two stupid things. She didn't pick up an attack correctly when her partner attacked her incorrectly, and she thought she was doing one basic wrong so she changed it. Lack of confidence and stupidity, because she was doing it correctly. Oh well, you know mom, she worries about whether or not the sun will come up in the morning.

New Guns

These are the new guns that Mr. Karate bought for himself and mom. Mr. Karate took the bright green one. They gave the mini guns to dad, who joined in unexpectedly, getting mom right on the
side of the head. These shoot the "bullets" really far. Mom and Mr. Karate laugh hysterically while playing this. PlusOne alternatively takes turns going against mom and then against Mr. Karate. He's no fool. Lucky and I are smart. We just stay out of the way.

Funny thing, though, I don't know who is having more fun. PlusOne, Mr. Karate, or mom!

Class Is Now In Session - Lesson Five

This week's lesson is "how to get away with anything" or "after you've cause so much mayhem, how not to be punished".

The answer is simple. Look like this...

If that doesn't get you an "awwww" then you don't deserve to be called a pug. Practice away!

Wordy Wednesday

The Princess and the Pea.

Is she spoiled or what?

And yesterday's post might have made more sense if mom had remembered to tell everyone that I was on The Meezers Hams of the World Tour. We've been eating lots of ham and having lots of fun.

Well, Millie didn't like being in space, but other than that, it was all good.

What Do You Get When...

You put a 12 year old with a young at heart 29 year old and a bunch of nerf guns?

Total chaos. Especially when mom jumps in with two guns! It's a lot of fun (for beans) Lucky & I just hide with dad.

Mom thinks this is what she'll be doing tomorrow after her test. I doubt it, but then, what do I know, I'm just a dog.

Test Number Two

Mom's second test is tomorrow morning, 8:30 am sharp. She has to run 20 minutes, do 60 sit-ups and 40 push-ups. Except mom can't do 40 push-ups yet. Her shoulder is getting better, but it is slow going. After all, she doesn't want to hurt it again. Mom can do 20 push-ups though and she is really happy about that.

Mom will have to do two forms (Short Two and Long Two), the Finger Set (showcases the methods of execution) and eight techniques. Two of the techniques are weapon techniques. One knife and one gun.

The test will be over at 9:45 am. Mom won't know how she did for another week. Sigh. But as mom says, as team leader, failure is not an option.

Class Is Now In Session - Lesson Four

Okay class, we are now in session. As promised, we will take on the challenges of toilet paper and child proof safety locks. First, toilet paper. If your mom and dad are like mine, and have the toilet paper hanging like this, you have it made.

Especially if you can do this.

Notice paw placement, this is a very important part of both lessons, so remember it. Because mom hangs the toilet paper the way she does, it is very easy to put my paws on the roll and roll it downward. Or you can just grab it in your mouth and run away.

However, bringing the toilet paper straight to your bed is not a good idea.

Being caught with the toilet paper in your mouth is an even worse idea.

And no "I'm innocent" look will work here, either. Trust me on this.

The indignant look doesn't work either. As for child proof safety locks, well, Titus my friend, you should have this one in the bag. Return to that pose I showed you earlier (I told you it would be important) put your paw on the white thing sticking out of the door, and push down. Or drop your paws, both will work.

The door will swing open and all it needs is a good nudge to get it open enough for you to climb in and "go to town".

Or as PlusOne would say "Eh voila!"

I hope you enjoyed the lessons, and I appreciate all your faith in my innocence despite the overwhelming "evidence" to the contrary.
