Har-Har is a total LOVE sponge ....
The Pug Beach
gives you 5 for a treat , paws your arm for attn
Harley is a rescue pug, I was his foster mom, I was unable to find the perfect home for him and loved him....so we adopted him... He loves my husband and his brother and sister... we are a 3 pug family!!
Grampy as I love to call him is very happy, carefree pug. He loves to ride in the SUV, he is a total love sponge the more you give him the more he wants. Grampy is very special and makes me smile everyday. He loves loves clothes... I make stuff for him but I also buy stuff for him as well!! He gets so excited to put his clothes on. He will try to bite you if take them off!! One of his other loves is FOOD...he acts like a 2 year old ...we joke that if he gets sick we will pull out the boarshead rost beef, and that will make him well!! For his age he is very healthy I am so grateful for that. He is a little weak in his back legs, and has a little dry eye ...he gets eye ointment for that. He also loves to go camping in the RV ..no tent for him BOL ... When we go for walks he leads the way til he gets tired then he rides in his stroller under protest. Grampy is very very independent ...He still goes up n down the stairs to our bed on his own ..we just stand close in case. He gets so mad if anyone tries to do stuff for him. This weekend hubby picked him up off the bed as I do ..Grampy tried to bite him the whole time...He has never done that to his MA!! BOL One of the things he dislikes is of course getting his nails done. We laugh so hard we have tears running down our faces cause Grampy is wild like a FL gator (he even does a death roll if you lose your grip) and tries to bite my husband while he is getting his nails clipped!!! It is so funny he reverts to a pup over that... I always laugh at hubby and tell him Grampy's dentures are going to be on his hand.. at this point all Grampy can really do is gum you...he still has some teeth but not all!! Then after you get the nails done he is soooo happy n runs around!!!! Silly PUG!! To this day I will never understand why he was wandering dowtown tampa all alone ... How someone could cast him off ....He is such a well behaved boy and was well cared for ....... I am proud to be his ma and we love him so much!!! If I could tell his old parents anything it would be "Thanks" because of you I have gotten to enjoy & love my Grampy Pug ..... Senior Pugs really are a blessing n joy to have in your life. One of Grampy's favorite places is the beach .... He loves to get in the Gulf a bit .... the walk down to the beach is getting to be alot for him so he has to ride in the wagon. "Under Protest the whole way"
I fostered Cheto first then Grampy came along .... Grampy is also a pug-humanitarian .... He has helped his brother Cheto get over the horrible abuses he suffered. After I got Cheto and realized how traumatized he was I knew that I would need alot of help. Cheto would not be the pug he is today if not for the help, reassurances, and guidence he has received from Grampy and of course Princess Vala V .... too. Grampy supports pug rescue accross the USA and also rings the bell for the Salvation Army every year!!! He gets more donations than the humans do!!! : )
Harley the Grampy Pug is the MANPUG!!

It is with great sorrow that I finally write about Grampy going to the bridge were he is a pup again and feels no pain and can play with old and new pals.We were very lucky to have had Grampy in our live's for as long as we did. He had so many things that he loved camping, his dad and mom, sleeping with his brother and sister. He knew he was loved by many on dogster and at home. This is not goodbye we will meet again. I love you gramps!!!

I have mom trained as you all know. I am up to my tricks again.... I only eat Wellness Senior with a little 95% about a tablespoon (microwaved) and mixed well in my kibbles. It is all nice n warm, I watch to the Bratz eat their kibble with no can >>> BOL BOL only a Grampy gets can!!! humph as it should be. After they get done they like to come over n look at mine.... So I growl and let them know Grampy eats when he is ready!!! So I sit there and look around, stare some at mom. She always say's Now Grampy eat your food!!! Yah talk to my paw lady I eat when I WANT!!!! If I drag it out some mom will go in my favorite place THE FRIG .... I loves Cheese , but only Velveeta none of that cheap stuff for Grampy I tell you!!! oooohhh or sum yummy meat!!!! aaaaaahhhh roast beef .... he he When she opens the door I cock my head you know looks real cute.... she pulls out my velveeta today and puts it on my food.... I look at her , look at my food ..... glare at the bratz ..... then head over to my food. I of course don't give away that I am excited to get my cheese... I sniff the outside of the bowl, then I sniff around the floor.... look at ma .... then eat my food..... Dad thinks I am spoiled he is sooooooooooooo jealous!!! He ain't got the moves of Grampy!!! So one day Dad decided to show me who was BOSS .... YEA WHATEVER DUDE .... so he say's he is going to feed us .... he fixes my food microwave n all ...... but NO CHEESE ..... HEY DUDE I WANT CHEESE ...... Mom is dying laughing cause he ain't showed me who is BOSS!!! I sit there stare at him, cock my head, humph no work ....so I walk off and turn with my butt facing DAD!!! Mom is rolling laughing by now...... Dad goes to ge my bowl n bring it to me.... I look at him like he is crazy.... duh no cheese!!! Dad waits 5 min then goes n gets my cheese... I am smart I hear the fridge door but don't move..... I hear the crinkle of my cheese wrapper.... still don't move or look... Dad comes over and puts my cheese in .... I look at him, look at my cheese, sniff it ..... Dad say's is that good enough for you, your royal highness .... See he is catching on... he is a little slow, maybe he was dropped at birth?? but hey what is a pug to do. See Once again GRAMPY PREVAILS !!!!
Moral of this Grampy tail is that if your human is a little slow, be patient they too can be trained. Remember positive reinforcement works best on them.
