Well, it was an exciting weekend, watching the Olympics. Well, exciting for sports – I personally just sat on the couch all weekend. Well, I did get up for a few hours and go to Target. But that’s pretty much it. See? We even took this picture (See Terry posing with an air of patronizing grumpiness? Yes, that’s what I have to put up with. My pugs don’t give me such attitude. Granted I usually give them treats. Maybe I should’ve offered Terry a snausage?)
Anyways, if you watched the Olympics – what was your favorite part? I think the swimming was the best for me. I was SO excited to see Phelps win two golds! I totally want him to win all of the ones that he’s in races for. That would be so cool! Were you cheering him on over the weekend!?
In other news, the pugs (well mostly Napoleon) are shedding. They always shed a little bit, but for whatever reason this apparently is pug-shedding TIME OF THE YEAR! You can’t pick up darling Poley without coming away looking like a mangy wookie.
It’s bad! In fact, it’s gotten bad enough that I’m going to break out the big guns. I’m going to brush him. I’ve heard that by brushing hair off him, then supposedly he won’t shed as much. I am not sure if that’s circular logic, but I’m willing to take a stab at anything.
Also, regarding the lovely pugs…they aparently have decided that they are either bored or angry at us for leaving them alone for too long during the day. Because Terry and I came home on Friday to find part of the edge of our (wooden panelling-covered) kitchen island chewed up. Actually it was missing entirely. I have not found it, except for some wood shavings. But considering they pugs didn’t eat their dinner that night…I have a pretty fair idea where the wood went. And have no idea if it’s one of them, or both because we didn’t catch them. They don’t do these things when we’re home.
We read somewhere that if we give them more appetizing toys they won’t get destructive. So we covered up the chewed parts with cinder blocks (yeah, that makes my kitchen look so homey) and then according to someone’s suggestion – put a few drops of cooking oil and garlic salt on their chew toys.
Of course….they LOVED these, but will it stop them from attacking the kitchen island? Time will tell.
Does anyone have any thoughts/ideas?
