Post Holiday Snooze!


To say that we’re exhausted after this holiday season is a gross understatement! I have no idea how I even had the energy to put up our annual displays at the Pug Palace let alone take them down after the new year, yet somehow, I managed to do it all. If there is one vow I promised Tommy I would keep in my lifetime, it’s to make Christmas a huge spectacle every year for the rest of our lives! No matter how old I get or how much time I think I may or may not have, I intend to keep that promise. At any rate, we spent the last couple of weeks dedecorating the halls throughout Mamma’s crib and we’ve finally gotten it all done. It’s so comical to watch Mamma Biscuit roam around the apartment wondering where all of this extra space came from. She stares longingly at the spot where our grand Christmas tree once stood, rotating on it’s stand, showcasing a menagerie of hundreds of glass ornaments. In fact, our Christmas displays are so big and insular that while they are up, the household heat needs to be turned way down or else Mamma starts panting. Also, when we take them down, suddenly, every little noise in every room creates an echo! It’s like Mamma’s pug snorts and barking brought on by demanding treats (she’s such an unyielding diva) become freakishly amplified. So when the last boxes of ornaments were put away and the last string of garland taken down, I decided to take a well deserved nap alongside our little gremlin.


Before I could even pull away the covers though, Mamma immediately plopped down in the middle of our bed, exhausted from her endless supervision as Tommy and I did all of the work. She looked like a spectator watching a tennis match while the dedecorating took place and all of her head tilting back and forth was too much physical work for our pampered pooch.


So there I let her lay while snuggled up in her tangerine knit sweater wetting my good duvet cover with her drool and tongue! There is nothing I love more than to get up close and personal with Mamma Biscuit’s face while she sleeps. Her snoring sounds like a cross between a freight train coming into the station in the middle of night and the faint sounds of several pigs squealing in the distance! Her eyes completely close and she tilts her mouth down and tucked under leaving her head to look like one of those plush tribbles from Star Trek!


Just like Mamma Biscuit, half way through this photoshoot, I got hungry. So since the Biscuit Lady was in a deep sleep, I sneaked out of the room and got myself a few Oreo cookies from the kitchen. Upon my return (and as I was chewing the last of my cookies) she woke up from her slumber.


Bleary-eyed but well aware that food was within her vicinity (basically masticated in my mouth) Mamma knew something was up—and I was caught red-handed! I swear, sometimes I feel like such a prisoner in my own home!


Anyway, after the faint smell of chocolate and cream filling dissipated, the Biscuit Lady put her head back down and fell back into her coma as if nothing ever happened. Either this is normal pug behavior or Mamma Biscuit has a tape worm!


Mamma and I got our snooze on together and it felt so cozy in our clean home. We all hope you had a very Happy New Year holiday and as soon as we get out of our sleepy funk, we plan on bringing you some fun and new adventures in the upcoming months, so stay tuned!

    No doubt I’ve said this before (but this time I really mean it!) — these have to be the cutest pictures of Mamma (and pugs in general) ever. You are so right, she does look like a tribble. I want to stroke her sweet wrinkly forehead right through the screen.

    I’m definitely NOT looking forward to de-decorating, though it can’t be avoided any longer. The tree is looking droopy and with the plethora of ornaments on every branch, things are starting to slide off (and sometimes break, boo). Basically I tiptoe around the tree; if I accidentally touch it some needles fall off signalling “put a fork in it”. There’s a long weekend coming up and I know what I’ll be doing . . . am estimating around 20-24 hours to take everything down and oh-so-carefully put it away.

    Looking forward to your family’s adventures in FY 2014!

      I agree, Mamma looks especially adogable in these photos! I just worry that when she buries her face deep into what ever piece of furniture she happens to be napping on, she will stop breathing! Somehow, she manages to get air in through her nose LOL I feel for you regarding the dedecorating process! I had put it off for so long this year because time just seemed to slip through my fingers every weekend! You’ll get through it, just think of the end result: a clean, fresh home!
      Pug hugs and kisses from Mamma and family!

    It is normal pug behavior… or else Mamma AND my Penelope have tapeworms. I always wonder how they can go from deep, rumbling, room shaking snores to “wait, someone three blocks away is eating a cake and I want in,” back to purring slumber in a 90 second window.

    Pugs do make naps look so delicious.

    Give Mamma a squeeze from her fans in Boston

      LOL your description is spot on when it comes to pugs detecting food with in a a three-block radius! I also love how in one moment Mamma could be excited and within seconds, she’ll yawn and then collapse for a 4-hour nap! Pugs are so peculiar and so wonderful! Mamma and family is sending you and Penelope warm pug hugs and kisses!

      Daddies, Let me recount another pug sleeping-related talent (you can delete this if it’s too out there but I don’t see how it could be, judging by the duvet Mamma is napping on). Our late great male pug, Jeep, was on a stud mission with a lady’s black pug who’d rejected all previous suitors. Well we knew our boy was a real charmer and man enough for the task so we drove him for a three day stay, about 1 1/2 hours away. Sure enough he did the deed; several times in quick succession in fact. We got a frantic call from the lady saying “oh no, I think Jeep’s had a heart attack during sex and succumbed”. No, he was just worn out from all of that thrusting and went to sleep, falling over on the ground while still attached to the female.
      Gotta love those pugs, and PS we kept one of the babies from this union — still have her (she’ll be 13 in a couple of months).

    Isn’t Mamma just the sweetest baby? I can’t resist a sleepy pug! I know she is just the biggest diva ever, but every pug mama (and daddy) can’t help but think of every pug they see as a baby. lol

    xoxo Patty

    Damn you Mama Biscuit you have make me look like an insane person once again by bursting out into a hysteric laughter.
