Well today I thought it would be nice to give the sewing pattern reviews a rest and instead talk a little about waldo. He does rule 99% of my life and is incredibly cute, when he is not eating my shoes or stealing toilet paper. (actually he is cute even when doing these things but do not tell him, his heads big enough as it is)
Me and waldo met little under a year ago when after realizing all my friends were knocked up, married or both I was neither. This is not a ‘got to make a film about it’ situation I just simply felt a little bit…lonely? Think that is the right word. I just wanted a little more responsibility without the baby sick. Waldo was the answer.
This, as the title suggests was waldos first ever picture taken by me on the way home from the breeder. Look at that fatty puppy paw. He looks so silly. He is silly. I have never had a dog before. We had cats in the family home, but dogs were quite alien to me- which could be why i chose to love a pug. They are completely different to any other dog…or animal for that matter. As a puppy he never cried at night but he did/does meow. His favorite band is Metallica (who I dislike) and he watched films- usually ones with other dogs in, with an interest boarding on creepy. The contrary to this rule would be the film Taken, which he simply would not stop staring at until the end. Seems he was worrying about Liam Neasons daughter and wanted to help as much as he could.
This is his ‘concerned stare’. Waldo is concerned all the time. By the way, this is the view from my window. I made a window seat using a single memory foam matters so I could sit and read whilst the world drove by. Sadly, the world that drove by were all doing horrid things and after watching yet another man peeing I decided not to bother. Waldo on the other hand loves to watch strangers pee, and sits up there letting me know what is going on.
This is a typical waldo moment. I was (and have now succeeded) in teaching waldo some restraint around food. Pugs love food. To the point where every meal could be their last so they must suck it up like a hoover. Placing food in waldos mouth and making him wait til I say “ace” took a while. He was angry. I was tired, but we got there in the end. Now he smiles when I do this, and activity seeks kibble for ‘mouth placing’ but here if he had teeth i think he would have taken of my fingers. Of course never say ‘ace’ around waldo as you will get knocked over in the rush for the phantom kibble.
Here is waldo with rudy. The only other pug he had met other than his family. They are actually having a great time, although it kind of looks like they are trying to kill each other. Together they were like pug rockets! Now usually when walking waldo he greets all dogs with a ‘please love me and play with me’ attitude, but when he was playing with rudy no other dog got a look in. This was lovely as many dogs do not respond kindly to waldos love, so I am glad the tables were turned.
After 2 hours of Rudy and running waldo slept for about 18 hours. So did I.
I have found a few other ladies with pugs that sew and if you are one of these then let me know!! I want to see pictures of naughty sewing restricting pugs. Waldo eats, sits on and chews my fabrics if left alone with them. He also goes mad for pattern pieces on tracing paper….I never did find belt C from Butterick 6582…….
