A Pug Lover’s Christmas Wish List

On the advice of Goodboy Norman Featherstone’s Mom, I have made a list of the top things that any pug lover would enjoy this Christmas.  And I’m not talking cheesy, lame pug things.  I am talking about hip items for the every day pug owner who likes to show their love for all things pug:

A pug luggage tag.  Tired of never knowing which suitcases are yours?  Why not slam your luggage with pug-themed things?!  I think this is absolutely adorable, and I’d likely just clip it to my purse or something in an attempt to show my pug pride!


Or how about maybe a HUGE pug magnet for the fridge?  I love this, and I’m sure it would bring hours of entertainment to see my little puggies bark at this thing!

Or maybe these silver plated pug salt and pepper shakers will be your delight in the dining room?


Of course no pug lover can go without her antique pug necklace while she’s at all those Christmas parties!

Or if a classier version is more your style, check out this sterling silver, gold, or white gold bracelet.  I like the simple lines of the pug, and I think it makes wearing your pug pride look really beautiful, not cheesy.

Maybe you’re into a more casual pug love, eh?  How about this Pug Power t-shirt?  I own a t-shirt from this place and it’s really great.  Comfy, lots of colours to choose from, and pretty reasonably priced!

Maybe a fun and whimsical pug painting?  I love the tongue sticking out on this one!

My favourite item that I own and recommend is the Living With Pugs book. This book was highly recommended by my pal, Amanda, and is one of the nicest pug items I own. It’s a great coffee table book, and a really informative book on the breed. The photography of pugs in the book is to die for, it’s absolutely gorgeous as well.

Hopefully this gave you some good gift ideas for the pug lover in your life, or you know, since a lot of you like pugs, I mean, you can always pick something up for yourself, right?!

Holy Sweet Volcano Mother!

It’s about as hot as the photo in the office today!  The heater in the building is broken and so I’m livin’ the island life over here at my desk with a fan on full blast while I die a slow death in the sweater I chose to wear this morning!

 It’s apparently “quite” cold outside today.  Apparently people in Vancouver think that two degrees celcius is cold.  Let me tell you: IT IS NOT COLD.  I am still wearing a fall jacket and I am toasty, meanwhile there are people walking around in winter boots and jackets and holding scarves over their mouths like the next ice age has arrived and it is going to kill us all THIS VERY SECOND.

You know what’s cold?  MINUS FOURTY!  And did you know that at -40, celcius and farenheit are the SAME?!  Think about how cold that is.  You want to die in weather like that.  That’s the kind of cold that puts hair on your chest–MAN OR WOMAN!

Anyhow, despite this amazingly temperate “cold spell”, people went out to the grand Santa Claus Parade, which is known to me as “IT’S GOING TO TAKE FOUR HOURS TO DRIVE TEN BLOCKS TIME!”  I was sitting in traffic for so long that my gas light came on and I was VERY close to being stranded.  I had to park just to conserve my morsels of gas.  FOUR HOURS!  It was mayhem!  I accidently ended up parking like a block from the parade, so Steve and I just watched the parade and made a fun thing about it.  It was pretty sweet, except for the floats that we ad floats.  Since when were there advertisement floats???  Like literally there was a big semi driving the parade route with the coca-cola logo on it.  BUY COKE OR YOUR FAMILY WILL SUFFER THIS CHRISTMAS!!!

 I guess I’ll be sufferin’ away while I drink delicious Pepsi this holiday season!
