Pug Love

I am starting to jump all over in the A to Z challenge, but I’ve decided I would rather do whatever letter I feel inspired by and cover all 26 letters rather than sticking to a specific letter each corresponding day. I checked the rules and they said it doesn’t have to be in order… so that is my disclaimer for my rebellion. 🙂

I want to talk to you about one of my very favorite things in the world: Pugs! Specifically, I’m going to share with you about my almost 8-year-old boy, Buddy. He is very good at posing, because of all the praise he gets for it. Enjoy!



He is so ugly that he is completely adorable.

He is cool with playing dress up, because it leads to more attention.

He is full of personality and has lots of facial expressions.

But he is the best snuggler.

1377085_10151639116077056_1728096249_nHe can’t sleep alone at night, but has to be snuggling someone.

1962680_10151879690252056_610959538_nHe is very protective of his toys.

And all around, completely adorable.


And yes, I do realize I am fully obsessed. But he makes every day a million times better. Buddy had his own Blog for a bit, but hasn’t written in a while. Feel free to check it out! I post a lot of pictures of Buddy on my Instagram, feel free to check that out, too @gretchzky.


Part of the A to Z Challenge… A post a day except Sunday for the month of April to cover topics beginning with each letter of the alphabet.


Thanks for taking the time to read this. I always love feedback, whether it’s an approving nod via a “like”, or a comment. Writing can be hard to put your thoughts out there and send them into the void, and it is nice to know that sometimes some of your words stick to something.

WordPress said there might be an ad under here. Sorry for that.

    • Haha thank you for your honesty, and the compliment. 🙂 Buddy has a lot of personality, so a lot of people that don’t even like dogs in general end up liking him. Thanks for the love!
