Being with people, jumping all over you when he shouldn't, licking moisturiser off his mum's legs, getting into places he shouldn't, chasing the cats.
People sneezing and coughing as it makes him jump!
Cuddly Leopard which was with him in the basket on the ride home from the breeder. He hasn't let it go since.
Malteasers (chocolate with honeycomb in the centre) and ice lollies. He likes eating the crusts off toast and will lick any plate that's given to him. He's also very partial to yoghurt, noodles and chocolate mousse. He eats quite a lot of grass too!
Through the long grass though he's only got little legs and does tend to fall in holes.
Shaking hands and waving though he's not impressed if he doesn't get a biscuit afterwards! Also he actually blows his nose on tissues or your trousers if there isn't a tissue handy!
Having suffered from mental illness for a number of years my parents and I thought that getting a dog might help to bring me out of my shell and get me out of the house for a few minutes a day. Lan Ping cost me all my savings but when we went to pick him up from the breeder's I knew that he was the Pug for me.
After we had him we discovered he had a very small trachea which meant that he found it difficult to breath and when he caught pneumonia at about 9 weeks old he almost died. Thanks to our vet Jo and the lovely specialists who took care of him he has pulled through. He has other health problems associated with Pugs, including a luxating patella (a knee joint that dislocates occasionally) and Entropion (eyelashes that turn inwards and irritate the eye itself) but he doesn't let any of it get him down. He snores, snorts and passes wind from both ends just like every Pug does and we love him even more because we know how lucky we are to have him.
I'm not all that much better now but I feel better knowing that I have a puppy who can love me and will always be there to cheer me up. He makes me laugh and always has a kiss for me. I couldn't ask for a better friend. Lan Ping, I love you.
Lan Ping left us tonight at around 6PM (28th October 2011) which means he was exactly 7 years and 6 months old. God decided he'd been through enough and stretched out His hand to our puppy, who was lifted up and will now wait for us to join him one day. He had not been well for a while and was in an animal hospital where he was everyone's favourite dog, just as he was here with us at home. Now he has gone to be with all our other pets and will play with them until we are all reunited.
In the pictures to the left, I'm the one with brown hair and our mum Vanessa is blonde, holding Lan Ping when he was very little.
He comes from Afterglow Kennels in Blackpool. His sire was Migang Carlby For Patsang and his dam was Afterglow Ruffey Dimples. Are any of his brothers/sisters out there? His grandad on his dam's side is American/Multi Champion Sheffield Shenandoah who I looked up on the internet and he's a very handsome pug indeed (though I think Lan Ping is the most pretty!)
UPDATE: Lan Ping has found his sister Lola May! We're very excited and hope other family members might get in touch!
He's coming up on to his 6th Birthday soon and we're so pleased as we didn't know if he'd even get to 6 months!
Feed me people food!

I look down on my family and I can see them and their new little girl, Maisie. I hope they understand that although they are sad that I had to leave them, they couldn't have has Maisie while I was still with them and she needed all the love that they have for their animals. Maisie is so happy and she can't believe how much they love her and care for her.
I still come down sometimes to watch them in the house and sometimes Maisie notices me and barks a lot but each time she gets less frightened. I hope she knows I'm just doing my job. After all, angels are there to keep an eye on things, aren't they?

I went to wait for my family at Rainbow Bridge Today. I wasn't a well puppy so God asked me if I wanted to sit on his lap for a while. God decided that I'd been through enough and stretched out His hand to me, and I was lifted up and will now wait for my Mum and Lucy and everyone else to join me.
The cancer I had made me thin and food went right through me but I knew that my family and Rosie, my wonderful vet were working hard, trying to get me better. They loved me so well and I hope they realised how much I loved them for this as well as still loving them now as I look down and see them.
I know they are sad and upset because I'm not there but they'll see me again. Where I am now, I can eat as much as I like and not get fat. I can run about because my wobbly legs have got better. I can do everything I always wanted to and more. Of course, I will miss those I left behind but it's not a "goodbye" but a "see you soon!" One day I'll turn around and see you waiting there and will come and leap into your arms.
Please don't be sad. I am happy now and I want you to be happy for me.
Lan Ping. xx

I haven't been on here for ages! Well not too much has changed. I'm still a "Filthy Mongrel" as I'm called here and all my family are still around, even Peter Pan the cat who was 20 in May.
Peter Pan sleeps in my basket in the kitchen when I'm not in there but he complains if I want to get in to go to sleep. The cheek of it! But he does warm it up for me which is nice.
Last week I hurt my eye and also got an ear infection. On Monday Mum took me to the vets and I got eye drops and a squirty thing for my ears which I don't like. I let Mum put drops in my eyes though as I trust her and she won't hurt me. I was very miserable on Monday and Tuesday but the last couple of days I've felt better.
Anyway, big woofs to all my friends!
Lan Ping xx
