gearing up for summer?

May 3, 2010

Yep, it’s been a while.  We’ve been busy enjoying the spring. It’s been one of the nicest I remember. Unfortunately we haven’t been able to let Diego run around out in his backyard too much lately. We’ve been doing a lot of work back there, and we have an evil Chinaberry tree hanging over our fence from the neighbor’s yard that decided to drop chinaberries all over our yard all spring. They are mostly gone now, but that doesn’t help us much because it’s starting to get warm/hot out. Poor Diego. During the nicest pug weather, he’s been kept out of the yard. We are hoping that at some point we’ll be able to convince our neighbors to chop the tree down since it’s really just a glorified (humongous) weed anyway. We’ll keep you posted on that situation.

Stay tuned for summer updates from Diego. We plan on getting out and doing as much fun stuff as we can this summer.

diego gets a yard!

November 17, 2009

We never thought it would happen, but we finally have a yard for Diego to play in. We closed on our condo at the end of the summer, and we’re happy to say that Diego and the cats have been enjoying the new place. Moving was an interesting experience. Everyone got a bit confused and stressed, but in the end it was all for the better. We were lucky to find a condo with so much outdoor space, not only for Diego, but for us as well. We love to spend evenings sitting out under the trees, reading or just hanging out with a glass of wine. Now we just need to start landscaping. We’re thinking of adding some nice native plants, and some climbing plants as well. It was a crazy busy summer, but somehow we all managed through it. We’re looking forward to the holidays and we’re glad we got our backyard in time to enjoy the cooler weather that we waited so long for. Diego is as silly and crazy as ever, but now at  least he has some space to run around and get out some of his lingering puppy energy. He loves to chase leaves and chew on sticks. I’d tell him he’s a cliche if it weren’t so freaking cute.

coming soon…

It’s been a very busy year for us, but we’re ready to start posting again. We moved a couple of months ago, and Diego’s ready to show off his new digs…and his YARD. He’s super happy and excited and we’ll have some pictures up soon. Hope you all had a great summer!

christmas roadtrip!!!

January 6, 2009

50 hours in a car (round trip) with a dog. Pretty fun.

Actually, Diego did really well. Aside from crying every time the car stopped. We all got to spend quality time with family that we never get to see. Grandma and Grandpa, and aunts and uncles and cousins. Good times!

Diego bugged us to go to Dollywood, but we only drove up the street so he could see it. 50 bucks a ticket is pretty steep! I think he appreciated the effort all the same.

All in all, it was a great, RELAXING time, and the kitties got a Diego break at home, filled with lots of visitors.

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.

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.
