I have a ridiculous amount of photos of my baby Pug, Tilly & instead of them all being hidden away on my MacBook I'm going to start sharing some each week as a little way of documenting her life! She is so so precious to me & I love her little squishy face a ridiculous amount, I'm pretty obsessed with my dog... #crazypuglady
Tilly is now 8 months old & has finally mastered toilet training... pugs are incredibly stubborn when it comes to this, my poor cream carpets have been her favourite to pee all over, naughty pug. Luckily we have a carpet cleaner or I think I'd have had a nervous breakdown by now! If anyone wants any tips on how to toilet train a pug or other stubborn dogs feel free to email/tweet me! She knows how to sit, lie down, give her paw & also her other if we say "other", spin in a circle, jump up for a treat, wait, play fetch & is super good of her lead in the park. She absolutely loves cheese & will instantly stop what she's doing if she even hears the word so we now spell it out if we need to mention it haha. She is the most cuddly & loving dog I have ever met, she snuggles up to me when she's sleepy but also demands cuddles whenever she feels like it by sitting at my feet, looking up at me & crying! If it is raining there is absolutely no way she will move from our front door, I have to pick her up, carry her to the grass & stand with her til she will go to the toilet!! Also she is a monkey for making me take her on a long walk & then refusing to walk home, resulting in me cradling her like a baby all the way back & getting the strangest looks from people. Honestly she is the biggest diva I know.
Of course having a dog is hard work, expensive & sometimes sad. Tilly has been ill a few times already with ear infections, sickness & a sprained leg. Luckily it was nothing to serious & she is okay now but it literally broke my heart seeing her unwell, I'm one of those puppy mummies who worries like crazy & rushes her off to the vet straight away, I just can't cope! I mostly get lots of lovely comments about Tilly from friends, family & we are often stopped on walkies because people are so excited by her, it's the nicest thing to see people smiling because they've met a pug! I also get some nasty comments though, which is actually really upsetting, I hate it when people are completely ignorant to a breed of dog. Pugs are one of the oldest & most treasured breeds to exist & yes they can health problems, but so can any other breed of dog or human for that matter. I was going to go off on a rant but I don't think I'll bother, but I might do a post on pugs in general in the future. Tilly is the best little dog, a perfect little companion & also ideal for anyone who lives in a flat like we do!
