I just came across these photos of William and Diego from when we went to visit him for the first time. He was 2 and a half weeks old. I can’t believe he was that small!

We brought Diego out over the weekend to the Pet Parade. There was a costume contest for the dogs, and plenty of dogs there sans costume. There was even a pig. Diego did not dress up in costume, but he did get to show off his new collar and leash. I think he was pretty stylin’. the He got to socialize with some other dogs and people. He’s still not that great meeting new people and dogs, but he’s gotten a lot better. It was pretty awesome to see him around the other pugs, and enjoying the nice weather. Over all, he was a good boy, and was plenty tired the rest of the day. Unfortunately, the cats did not get to come along.


wow. he does run out of energy…

Hooray! We successfully wore out Diego today. We have just started walking him recently, and now we walk him whenever we can. It’s a welcome change because you can only play fetch in the living room for so long before you want to pull your hair out.

It’s so great to see that sweet sleepy face! He enjoys the walk. We enjoy the walk. And then we all come home and sleep. It’s a win/win for all.

These pictures were taken very shortly after we got home, and you can see the very quick progression… Makes me tired just looking at him when he’s like this.

When we came home tonight our little Diego was nowhere to be found. He had escaped from his pen. We have no idea how he made it over the wall. Maybe he had been digging out a little hole with a pocket knife for the last few weeks, and finally made it all the way through today. We seriously have no idea. Luckily, he was somewhat well behaved while roaming around the house on his own. He tore up only a newspaper, peed on a blanket, and then cuddled up in William’s jacket. Whew! Also, we’re happy to report that the cats were acting pretty normal…and not freaked out. Actually, the more I think about it, the more suspicious I become of the cats…

I don’t care what Paula Abdul says, opposites don’t attract.

Diego was definitely not on his best behavior today. He just couldn’t get along with Fork. We brought them both outside today on the front porch. Diego had a hard time with it, especially because he was on a leash. Fork, for the most part was pretty chill, although he did bop Diego on the head a few times. Diego’s pretty lucky that Fork wears those soft claws, or he might be hurting right now.

First we tried sitting near each other. Fork was down with this. He even tried rubbing his face against Diego. Gotta give him props for that. Good kitty!





That was a good start, but Diego was a little riled, and needed to walk it out. So William walked him up and down the porch.

It obviously didn’t work that well, as you can see, he turned into an attack pug.

Fork just looks baffled…and bored…and over it.


Who can blame him. After this Diego went into crazy puppy mode. Running, chasing his tail, and overall, just being a freak, and we gave up and went inside. Oh well, we tried!



All that craziness sent Diego straight to sleepytown once back inside. Sweet.
