Pug Names Idea List

When getting a pug puppy, deciding what to name your pug can be tough. You want to make sure it’s something you won’t regret as they get older. Pugs are rather silly, yet sweet dogs.

How To Keep A Dog’s Diaper On {No Matter What Happens}

Dog suspenders keep diaper on

You may remember my blog post called How To Get A Dog Diaper To Stay On A Pug. After finding out that without ‘help’, a dog diaper or baby diaper would only stay on our pug maybe 5 minutes at most, it felt like a massive relief to find that mitten clips would keep the diaper on for far longer. Since that post, we have continued to use diapers on Beans regularly. Her UTI cleared up, but she’s still … Read the rest

My senior pug has had recurring UTI’s and occasional incontinence when she is fighting the infection. I recently shared how we’ve tried dog diapers and baby diapers for pugs, and we shared which ones worked best for us. That post is called Are Dog Diapers Or Baby Diapers Best For Pugs?

Beans is 14 years old, and has been prone to urinary tract infections since we got her when she was 9 years old. Early on she only had 1 or 2 per year, and the last year or so, she’s had them almost non-stop. We have been working closely with our vet and are now trying hormone pills to hopefully assist. However, when she has UTI’s she sometimes has accidents. It’s sad because … Read the rest

Trachea Collapse In Pugs

Before we ever got a pug, I had read that trachea collapse is common in pugs. I knew that pugs should wear harnesses instead of collars to avoid pressure in their neck area. We’ve always used harnesses with both of our pugs.

A couple months ago, my pug Beans started choking or gagging a bit while eating her food. We had started a new type of dog food, so I thought it … Read the rest

In response to my other pet hedgehog themed posts, I often get asked ‘can hedgehogs eat cat food?’

The answer is yes, but please do not just run off to the store and buy any old cat food. Hedgehogs need a high protein and low fat diet. Some cat foods have a nutritional balance that is good for hedgehogs, but others don’t. Many cheap cat-foods do not provide ideal nutrition for hedgehogs, because … Read the rest

Senior Pugs – The Difference Between 9 and 14 Years

Senior pugs the difference between age 9 and age 14

We got Frank and Beans about 4 years and 8 months ago. When we got them, we were told Frank was 8 and Beans was 9. That was in July, we don’t know their birth months. So, by July they will be 13 and 14 years old. I knew when we got them, that age 7 is considered a senior in most breeds of dogs. So, they were already seniors, and now they are just older seniors, of course!

I … Read the rest
