Sushi Pug

Sunny senses that something is amiss.  There's a new pug presence in the home.
Aha it's sushi pug!  Sunny would you mind sharing your toys with sushi pug?
Uh oh sushi pug is trying to assert dominance over Sunny!
But Sunny quickly showed sushi pug who's the boss here!
Sushi pug now lays in defeat, covered in Sunny's fur and drool.  Sunny's alpha position remains secure and all is right with the world.  The champion can now safely rest.
As for the beta position, I suppose sushi pug and I will have to battle it out next...

Tuesday Tuni Tribute!

I was very sad to hear recently that Tuni, a tiny rescued pug with a big adorable tongue, crossed the rainbow bridge.  In honor of Tuni, her friend Winston asked that we post photos of our pugs in their beds on Tuesday since Tuni was known for her many beds around the house, all of which she loved, and Tuesdays were her posting days.  I missed the tribute last week, but I still have an hour left to make it for this Tuesday!  So in honor of Tuni and her family, here are some pics of Sunny and her beds.

Even though I only have one pug, she has a lot of beds.  I just keep buying new ones and not throwing out old ones!  I think the total count now is 7!  Sunny will show you all of her beds:
The green mat on the bottom was a lot thinner than I thought it was going to be so I put it underneath one of the first beds I got for Sunny, which turned out to be a super soft and squishy puppy bed.  Sunny loves to lay in it during the day because of it's prime location near two windows.
I got this next one through Gilt.  The fuzzy side seemed to irritate Sunny's skin so I flipped it over and she goes on it occasionally. 
One of her favorite beds is this old, lumpy, and misshapen Snuggie bed.  I thought about throwing it out but she loves it so.
There are a couple others that I don't have pictures of and this one below is the most recent one I got.  Sunny loves it but she doesn't use the edge as a chin rest like I thought she would, instead she leans over it and against the wall.
I think she also loves it because it's big enough to accommodate all of her "friends."
But of course Sunny's all time favorite is the BIG bed. 
There's plenty of room to stretch out.
As soon as I get up Sunny immediately moves into my spot.  What a bed hog.
Sunny would've loved to have met Tuni - they would have had epic naps together in all of their beds!  So in loving memory of Tuni, we hope you enjoyed these photos of Sunny and her beds.

Essie's Fear or Desire

This past week I wore Essie's Fear or Desire on my fingernails and while I was reluctant to give this one a try, I loved it!!  
I was off from work for some of last week and so I initially wanted to do a blue or green polish since I can never wear those during the weekdays.  But I needed to try this out and the bright color did seem summery.  Well I am so glad I tried this out because this is my favorite orange polish!
This required at least two polishes for complete coverage.  For some reason I'm having cuticle drag issues with the Essie Summer 2012 polishes.  Maybe I just got a goopy batch.  This is also with base and top coats. I like red orange polishes but sometimes they can seem a bit harsh against my skin tone.  Fear or Desire is a muted neon orange (if that even makes any sense).  Looks great with a tan and is a perfect pop of color for the summer (makes me think of popsicles)!

Oh and thank you to my lovely pug assistant, Sunny, for helping me to model this polish!

Essie's Bikini So Teeny

I almost forgot to take a photo of Essie's Bikini So Teeny before I took it off so I took just a quick single photo (sorry no pug model this time).  This is the color Essie's summer 2012 collection is named after and it's a fantastic cool bright blue.  Essie describes it as a cornflower blue, but it's much cooler, lighter, and neon-y than another cornflower blue polish, Lapis of Luxury.  This is with 2 coats, with a base coat and top coat.  I had this on for a long weekend and it held up well.  I always love Essie polishes because they never chip on me even though I am brutal with my nails.  I also got a lot of compliments on this color.  I'll definitely be revisiting this polish soon!

Essie's Off The Shoulder

Here's Essie's Off The Shoulder, a bright hot pink from their summer 2012 collection.  I am not normally a pink person but I loved this one and wore it for over a week (which is a long time for me!).  This is 2 coats with a base and top.  Application was pretty good but I needed the second coat to smooth out streaks and bald spots.  This is an amazing color for the summer and even though it's a hot pink I think it's fine for most offices.

Happy Gotcha Day Sunny!

Today is Sunny's gotcha day!

I've had this lil funny bunny for two years now!  It's weird because it feels like I've had her forever, but it's only been two years.  Anyways, I had to do something special for Sunny's gotcha day so I decided to whoop out some special human treats.  Contrary to appearances, I am actually quite strict with Sunny's diet and the only human food I give her usually are baby carrots.  So today I decided to let Sunny have a taste of some bacon (turkey bacon though).  Little did she realize the awesomeness she was about to taste.
Sniff it.  Want it.
And it never fails - as soon as Sunny realizes I'm holding a tasty treat for her, she gets up on her back legs and dances around.  I've never trained her to do this on purpose, it's just something she started doing and I encouraged.  
Hehe look at her funny face below!
And here's a turkey bacon mustache for you Sunny!
Here you go Sunny - enjoy!
Sunny was so intent on getting big bites sometimes one side of her face would scrunch up while she gnawed on the turkey bacon.
But Sunny, since I've now had you for two years, I think you should get a second treat for the second year!  Here's a piece of grilled chicken!
Dance for me!
And here's a chicken strip hat.
Sunny wants that chicken so badly she's getting sloppy with her tongue.
Enjoy the chicken!
That's it - no more!  See, there's nothing left in my hand!
Hmm, but maybe I should give you a third treat for our coming third year together.  Ok, you convinced me - here's some peanut butter!
Go nuts! (hehe)
Oh Sunny.  Your tongue is totally missing the tasty peanut butter glob.  Other side of the spoon!  Other side!
Here, I'll turn over the spoon for you silly.
Sunny was in bliss!
I also got a new toy for you Sunny!  A pink elephant!  But you don't care about it because you're still looking for more tasty treats.
Finally, Sunny noticed the elephant toy.  But I think she wishes it was covered in bacon, chicken, and peanut butter.
Happy Gotcha Day Sunny!  I'm so glad to have you in my life!  And I know you are so glad to have my hands filed with treats in your life!
