Introducing Pug

Several years ago, before the realities of apartment-hunting with multiple pets set in, Becky promised to buy me a pug as a graduation present when I finished law school. But alas, given that we were barely able to find a place in Knoxville that would allow us to have three cats and a dog, and given that we may well be moving again in the next year or two, getting a second dog seemed exceedingly unwise at the moment. So yesterday, we found an alternative solution: we bought a goldfish and named it “Pug.”

So, there he is, ladies and gentlemen: my Pug. :) You can see a wider view, showing Pug’s tank, here.

    Good lord. You’re going to need to have your house rezoned as a farm or petting zoo or something.

    Since you and Becky are TOTALLY into dogs, I think I should introduce you to Caperino & Peperone, or Cap & Pep, which are canine creations by Kuntzel+Deygas, which are often seen at the Colette concept store in Paris. They have a cute recap of their French commercials for the store, just clique on the start button at http://www.monocle.com/culture/kuntzel_and_deygas_cap_and_pep.php
    I absolutely love the Cap & Pep things I’ve gotten at the store.

    P.S. That poor little goldfish looks bored or lonely. He/She need friends and playmates!

    It’s a goldfish, i don’t think it CAN get bored

    With their luck, the goldfish will spawn, and they will be overswum? with guppies (Not puupies, guppies!)

  11. Nadine says:

    MumZ, you are so funny. I’m thinking they may have their OWN puppies ;)!

  12. Nadine says:

    Oh, and the THEY I refer to is Becky and Brandon.

    P.S. David K., if Britney Spears can get bored, then a goldfish can get bored.

    P.S. Jay, you are so funny. Al Gore should hire you to write jokes for him.
