Spring Days

Since the weather has been so nice lately (and of course today is cold and blustery!), I've been going for walks in the neighborhood. On these walks I've met some pups who were also enjoying some exercise. Some were large, some were small, and some hadn't grown into their paws yet! The city is once again coming to life with people and pups everywhere. And you don't find dogs just at the city parks -- no, they're walking down busy streets, they're trotting past restaurants and bars and trying to enter (but being persuaded that they're not old enough to enter all establishments); they're sitting on balconies and enjoying the sun or playing in front yards and in the case of one little Yorkie I met recently, slipping between the iron gate bars and running down the sidewalk.

Are you getting exercise this spring? Are you walking or running or playing? There are so many new possibilities every spring and so many new adventures to find that you just need to get out and get moving to be a part of it all. I hope all pups and peeps are getting out and enjoying this very special time of year.

I've been making sure Mom gets at least two walks a day!

It keeps her out of trouble fur a bit -

It's great to see so many pooches out. Just as long as they're leashed, not lost, and not lunging at our dogs.

Hi dw! Do you ever see pugs in your neighborhood? We don't have any in our neighborhood but that's okay because I like being the only pug in the 'hood.

I haven't gotten any exercise yet this spring because Mom has been busy with stuff. I'm hoping we can get out this weekend because I'm sick of being cooped up in the house.

Mommy has been walking my sister Izzy and my brother Anakin.
I can't walk so well so I get to ride in my pink stroller. Sometimes people will look in the stroller and not expect to see a cute little puggie in it. Well, aren't they in for a treat.
I hope the weather gets better so I get more puggie buggie rides.
Your friend,
