« Seniors | Main | Sweet Temptation »
Pugsley had his Senior Wellness checkup this weekend and I'm happy to report the Dr. said he is healthy as can be with a very strong heart. As we waited to be seen Pugsley wooed everyone in the waiting room by performing tricks like High Fives and Play Deads. He will do anything for attention and boy does he know how to get it. He is the Mel Gibson of canines. One lady gave him a treat from a jar on the counter, another one gave him belly rubs and kisses, and the receptionist gave him a free toy. It's amazing the way he can work a room. I swear he must have been a Playboy in a former life.
On our way home I stopped at the Drive-up Coffee Barista. As I sat at the drive through and ordered my usual Grande Regular with cream and sugar, Pugsley hammed his way up to the driver's side window and laid on the old charm with his secret weapon, the half-head cock, and Lo... my Grande Regular came with a dog bisquit on top. He does this at the Bank too...climbs onto my lap and pokes his head through the window, trying to look extra cute because he understands that Drive throughs = tasty treats.
When we got home, it was so beautiful, warm, and sunny here in CT. I started my yardwork and clearing the gardens. Perfect Pug weather, not too hot and not too cold. Pugsley had a burst of energy, enjoyed chasing birds in the yard and was so exuberant at one point he was doing Pugtona laps around the lawn. Each time I made a trip to empty out the wheelbarrow, his royal highness got a ride back. We caught some of the action on the digital. Not bad for an almost 11 year old Pug. I Love that he still acts like a puppy.
