This Bug’s Life

Bug is a pill.  She is the hardest dog we’ve ever had to potty train.  She eats everything.  She is a big chicken, afraid of her own shadow.  She doesn’t really come when she’s called, unless food is involved.  All that said and we love her to pieces.  She is super entertaining and between her bug eyes, her sound effects and her wild and crazy antics she is always good for a laugh.

Bug and Nilla play all day, everyday with small breaks for recharging in between.

Though I supply lots of toys to keep them entertained, much like kids, it’s the simplest things that they seem to like the most.

Today’s favorite toy was a stick.

Bug wins the stick fair and square and protects her stick from the evil stick stealer, Nilla.  Bug lets Nilla know what’s up.

“This is my stick.” Bug waits and watches to ensure Nilla isn’t trying some sort of stealth maneuver.

Being a smallish dog with a very squished face, she takes a moment to catch her breath.

Maybe another moment or two.

and “Look at my stick Mom!  Isn’t it awesome?”

and then “Die, stick, Die!”


but “Wait…..Is that…..My boy?!”

“Who needs a dumb ole’ stick when you’ve got your boy?!”


She will stop just about anything to be with her boy.   They are like PB & J!  Happiest together.

If Conrad gets hurt or if anyone raises their voice at him, Bug barks nervously until she is certain her boy is ok. She loves him so!
