sad pug

Saturday while showing some out of town friends the sites of Nashville, Ty and I set up his computer to secretly record the pug. Since moving to the new townhouse, I have suspected that Doug dances on the living room coffee table when I am away. Why? Because when I come home, the white lacquer finish is COVERED in paw prints... it's like straight up Blue's Clues!

We were out of the house for about 3 hours, and around the 1 hour and 40 min mark, I got my confirmation. And it was funny. How awkward is that pug!?
**Excuse the grainy screen capture and disheveled living room... we didn't know we would actually capture any worthwhile footage!**
But then a few minutes later, he started howling/crying, and my ever loving pug heart shattered.
 I had always assumed that when we left the house, Doug somehow entertained himself with one of his BA-zillion toys or just slept the entire time. But now we know that instead, he jumps on the table, cries and stares at the door until we return. Saddest. Thing. Ever.
Watch out Ty, my petition for a little pug brother for Doug has just returned to full force!
How cute would he be with a little black fur brother!? The Yin & Yang of pugs!
Do you know what your fur babies do when you leave the house?

  1. Oh no, poor Doug! I've always wanted to put up a camera to watch the dogs when I'm not home! I'm pretty sure Jinx just sleeps the entire day on the couch/bed (I know this because most the time he's sleeping when I get home, haha). Oliver has to stay in the crate when we're at work because if not, my apt would be in shambles and I'm sure he'd accidentally hurt himself. Jinx used to get separation anxiety but now that Oliver is here with him, he doesn't cry anymore when we leave :)

  4. Awww, I would have just died, too!  It's funny that the camps out on the table.  When it was just Oscar and me, I'd crate him when I wasn't home and he seemed a lot happier and more secure that way.  But then we gained Mike's two dogs, and they're good about entertaining and keeping one another company.  You can use my testimonial if you need it. ;) Congrats on the Teen Vogue feature!

  6. Oooh Doug...so sad!  We set up the camera on our little Copa once & she actually brought one of my shoes, set it right in front of the camera & proceeded to happily chew on it for a good 15 minutes.  I actually came home in the middle of her chewing so you see her hear the door rattle & jump up to greet me.  Then you see me come in & greet her, all excited to see her.  Then I walk around the couch to where she had been chewing & I immediately go from "Hiiii baby!  You're so cute...." to "you BITCH!"  It's actually pretty hilarious.  I was just so mad because these were the heels I had bought to replace another pair she had recently chewed up.  It's a good thing they're so cute...

  8. Oh my goodness.  This is pitiful!  I want to give him a pug hug!!  Yes, he does need a little brother.  :-)

  9. Oh my gosh!!! This is so cute yet so sad! I've often wondered what my pooch does when we're not home, though I haven't tried this. I just assume she lays in the sun (on the weekends she moves from room to room as the sun hits different windows, haha), chews on her favorite ladybug toy, barks at the people and dogs that walk by the house, and sleeps in our bed. But maybe I'm wrong?! Poor guy!!

  12. I got my little dachshund in September (for my birthday! best boyfriend ever) and by January I had convinced him that we needed another to keep him company. Getting a second dog isn't much more work than just having 1, and they entertain themselves :)

  16. Oh my gosh... this story is so much better/worse than Doug's secret footage! That video should be on YouTube!

  17. Haha, that is too funny!! I love that you caught it on video. But it's so sad that he misses you so much. I think he does need a little friend!! 

    Our family dog mostly sleeps when we leave the house (he's really old now..), but when he does wake up and get off the couch, he stands at the window and whines and barks, which is really sad.

  18. I am going to have to record Doug during a week day to see if his routine is the same... maybe that is when he is sunning! haha

  21. Thanks for the laugh! It is funny and awesome how much our pets love us. Lola has shown her love by tearing up many pairs of shoes and any nearby paper...I obviously never learn. I need a puppy cam!

  22. OMG. I laughed so hard at this story. I had to share it with my fiance too, because we've definitely set up a webcam to watch Zoey while we're gone. There's an iphone app that lets you do it, which is awesome, but she only sleeps! So boring! I like to think that she's throwing pug parties, though.

  25. OMYGOSH this is too funny! Poor little guy he just wants to have some attention lol I want a puppy soooo badly but I know that I wouldn't have the time to give him and all I would want to do is play with him. So I'd probably get fired from my job for never going in! LOL

  26. Too cute. My dog like to get on the couch when we aren't and then acts like she wasn't on it. She can't fool us because the throw is normal on the floor when we get home .
