He's 42 years old..(in dog years) and going through a mild mid-life crisis. He's not the smartest of our pets, but we love him to pieces.
If you've been reading my blog for a while, then you'll already know that he's been in and out of the hospital. He has a problem. He eats everything in sight. Cigarette butts, chocolate cookies, candy and Aspirin. He'll push the kitchen chair across the room to reach the counters, so we can't leave anything within his range.
If you try to remove his "finds" from him, he flips out like a raging lunatic. After he regains his sanity, he whimpers in remorse at his behavior. He just can't help himself.
We have to keep an eye on him.
Otherwise, He is a fun-loving, big-hearted pug and will defend the members of his family to the point of potential death. He's famous on the streets of Manhattan. Passerbys greet him by name and surround him every time he is taken out for a walk. He loves the attention. His tongue hangs out and his tail wags on superspeed. He enjoys wearing outfits and prancing around the house.
Percy is single though and lonely.
He's so desperate that he tries to get it on with the cats. Fiona doesn't seem to mind (and it's disturbing...), but Michael has a serious problem with it. Percy has gotten a few swipes of the claw when he tried to get his groove on.
So as a joke, My sister and I set up a MYSPACE page for him. We hoped it would help him find some "female companions"
It's pretty sad when your DOG has more friends on than you do....Who knew there were so many other pugs looking for love out there in Cyberspace?
Now we're trying to teach him to talk.
Here's a clip from David Letterman. He introduced a pug that can say "I love you"
So we thought.. Percy can do that too. We gave it a shot... Here's the footage of my sister trying to teach Percy how to say "I love you"
He has a ways to go. You have to give him credit though... he's really trying. Give him a few weeks. We'll have him speaking full sentences in no time.
On further random news. We have a garden in our backyard and it's finally producing vegetables
Here is a photo of our first stunning achievement.
note: It's a cucumber.
On a closing note... My Mother is in Europe right now. My father has leave from Iraq and he was waiting for her in Rome. They are traveling through Rome, Venice, Florence and Prague. It's a two week trip. I'm so happy for her, she's been dreaming about this her whole life
That's all for now.
