Quick Pic: Pfft

My husband is a photographer as a hobby and he was practicing using some new lighting equipment this afternoon. He snapped this photo of me and my teddy bear.

Cute little strawberry tongue!

Caught Red Handed

A couple of weeks ago I was working from home. I was furiously typing away on my laptop tending to some urgent work dramas when I happen to glance over and see this:

I had been eating mint chocolate chip ice cream as a snack and I finished off the carton and left it on the kitchen table. The curious pig jumped on this opportunity. Too bad he got his head stuck in the carton in the process.

He stood very still like this for awhile obviously confused by his situation. Then he started to panic and try to get it off. Every time he got it off he would put his head back in to try to lick the ice cream remnants again and it would start the whole process over. Not the smartest little piggie.

I finally had to take it away from him because it was starting to seem like this might go on forever as long as there was still the smell of sweet goodness in the carton.

Seymour Has Spoken: No Earthquakes for California

Jim Berkland, former USGS Geologist has predicted a California earthquake between March 19-26. He successfully predicted the 1989 Bay Area quake. You can read more about it here.

Part of his research is based on strange animal behavior. Since his prediction, many friends have been posting on Facebook and Twitter that their animals are acting crazy.

So I turned to Seymour to see what was going on and whether or not he was worried about an earthquake.

This is what I saw:

So I checked back a few times and saw the same thing. Just his usual slumbering in his donut bead using his favorite stuffed toy as a pillow.

According to Seymour, we have nothing to fear.

Seymour and his pink snuggie

My company had a white elephant party a couple of years ago and I ended up with a pink snuggie. It sat in my cube for a long time but when I finally brought it home it quickly became the property of Seymour.

He's still sleeping with it today. In fact, he enjoys being tucked under this blanket each night until only his little face is showing. He waits patiently in his crate each night for my husband to come and perform this tucking in ritual.

Please observe him in his tucked in state:

Did you know Pugs have curly tongues?

I don't actually know if all Pugs have curly tongues, but I think a lot of them do. Whenever Seymour yawns, which is quite often, I see this long curly tongue appear. It reminds me of fruit by the foot (anyone remember that stuff?).

So I did some research on the internet and below are my findings regarding pug tongue curls:

Bath curl

side curl

outdoor curl

Droopy curl

fancy curl

My friend Stacey pointed out that Seymour's face in this photo looked like the walrus and his bucket. This made made me laugh for about 3 days straight.

So I decided to make a seymour bucket lol to contribue to the walrus and bucket saga.

Please vote for Seymour!

Seymour Meets a Port-A-Pug

Tonight my husband came home with a surprise for me. I was pretty happy about it.

Port-A-Pug!!!!! This is a pug in a box.

This thing comes with a lot of pieces. I laid them out on the kitchen table. I liked the head and leg bone pieces the best.

It was pretty easy to construct and the instructions were simple. Nothing complicated like Ikea furniture assembly which is pretty much the worst stuff to assemble in the world.

It also comes with a little stage.

After it had been assembled and I felt like it was pretty sturdy, it was time for the port-a-pug to meet seymour. At first Seymour was rather skeptical.

But then he gave it a kiss.
