My mom keeps saying our house smells like a breeders place (whatever that means) because we have four dogs staying at the house this Christmas season. My Uncles Dewey and Cody have been staying at our place since before Christmas. They are staying past the new year too. We have been having so much fun. We hang out all day. I let Dewey take over my large dog pillow. And they are nice enough to share their big boy water bowl with us. There is something about drinking out of a big boy bowl that makes it taste so good. My mom and dad take all four of us for a walk at the same time. My mom says she hates it, but she's a good sport.
My new cousin Willy came over to visit today. We had such a good time playing together. He's a good looking dude. But I just received word from my Aunt Amanda that they are going to have to take Willy back to his breeder because he has too many health issues. My mom and dad feel really lucky that we are such healthy Buggs (except for my cherry eye episode of course). We are all so sad that Willy had to go away. This one goes out to you Willy...
Here's a video of Molly and Willy at play...
And a slide show of my escapades with my homeboys...

Mission accomplished!!! I taught my sister how to scale my wall in the garden. It certainly wasn't easy. She was a bit tentative, but I reassured her she would make it. After much trial and error, she found a way to make it up. Now she runs like a crazy woman around my garden. I just hope she doesn't find all the bones I hid in there!

As you all know, I am an expert digger. I hate to say it, but I've ruined a lawn or two in my life. But, I've figured out a way to just dig inside the planter boxes so my mom and dad don't find my masterpiece. Molly can'at quite get up into the planter, so I've had to teach her how to dig on the lawn. Sorry dad!! As you can see, there is circumstantial evidence (my mom says that a lot in her work...whatever that is) that Molly and I are the culprits...just look at the dirt on our mugs. I've even got some in my teeth. Yum!

We have had a constant stream of visitors this week and we are BEAT!! My great grandpa John came in this past Tuesday and we have kept him entertained. I like him a lot, but when he decides to give Molly some attention, I make sure to move in there to remind him that I'm here. Then the whole family got here for Thanksgiving--my Hal, grandma Laura, grandma and grandpa Sobek, Uncle Randy, the McKeevers and Aunt Diane. I did my best to pay equal amounts attention to each one of them. But there is only so much Bug to go around.

As you know, I am a fan of the bubbles....so, I decided to introduce my new sister to my favorite evening pasttime. She picked it up pretty nicely, actually. I've been spending much of my time teaching her the ropes. She already mastered the dog door and the stairs. I've been teaching her my route for my evening walks. There's only one thing that drives me crazy...she steals my raw hides right out of my mouth. I've got to put a stop to that!!

It's a good thing she is too small to jump up on the couches, because I can jump up real fast and taunt her when she really wants to chase me. But, she gets back at me when she ducks underneath my parent's bed. Oh man, she crawls under there and swings a paw at me, and tries to get me to chase her. But I'm just not as nimble as she is when it comes to that bed.
So far so good. My parents assure me I am up to the task of being Big Brother.

Her mom was a Bugg, and her Dad was a Boston Terrier. So I guess that makes her 3 quarters Boston Terrier and 1/4 pug. She's got a little brindle in her coloring, but mostly she looks like a normal Boston Terrier. She sure is fun, we played so hard both of us passed right out. It will be a lot of fun showing her the ropes. I'll take her threw my garden, show her how to crawl under the covers at nighttime and under the bed. Plus I'll also show her how great walks are. I can't wait to play with her some more.
Maybe I'll have to change the name of my Dlog to Hey, this is Bugsy and Molly's Dlog. We'll see, I'm still working on some creative titles. Anyway, I'm pretty tired now, so I better go. I'll have my Dad post some more pictures later. Bye now.

I had the best night on Halloween. Every time the doorbell would ring, I would circle around in front of the door. My dad would pick me up and my mom would grab the bowl of candy. The neighborhood kids were dressed in costumes and take some of my candy. All the kids would say, "Oh look, its Bugsy." I am so popular!
To cap the night off, my uncles Dewey and Cody came to visit. That was the greatest treat of all!

Greetings Trojans fans! Imagine my surprise when my Hal brought Dewey and Cody to see me this weekend. I was just minding my own business on a lazy Friday afternoon, when all of the sudden, my buddies came running in the door. Oh happy day. I understand my uncles will be here every weekend there is a home game--whatever that means. But all I do know is that I am so excited. I don't know what I did to deserve it, but I am having so much fun. This is a picture of me with my Uncle Dewey. Cody isn't in the picture because he had to escape from me for just a few minutes to a pest/Bug free environment. But who would ever need a break from me??!!

So my mom came home the other day and found my dad and me, in front of the TV, in matching USC shirts. She said, "That is the cutest thing I have ever seen...my boys!" You know moms, they are all gushy and stuff like that. Women!! Anyway, my dad and I watched the game on Thursday and we wanted to turn it off it was so bad. My dad says these shirts are bad luck so we aren't allowed to wear them ever again. That's a shame, cause I look really cute. My uncles Dewey and Cody will be here for the game this weekend. I won't be wearing my shirt...

I have had quite an action packed week. I was pretty sad when my Uncles Dewey and Cody left me, but before I even knew it, my grandma Carol was at the door. I couldn't even believe it. She came all this way just to visit me?? We cleaned up the house as usual and I just stayed right by grandma's side the whole time. All good things come to an end, and so it is when my grandma left. But the highlight of the weekend came when I got to visit my girlfriend Chelsea. We hung out all day, chasing each other, tugging at toys, and laying around the house. It's true what they--absence makes the heart grow fonder. Being away from my Chelsea is tough, but we take advantage of every minute we have together.
Anyway, I have been so busy lately with my visitors, that I haven't been able to give my new GIANT loofa toy the attention it deserves. I am definitely making up for lost time. I'll show that loofa who's boss!! I didn't even know my mom was taping me!

My Uncles left almost 12 hours ago and I have been passed out ever since. I'm exhausted. I have been non-stop for 2 weeks. I even fell asleep in my mom's arms like a baby. I'll have to catch up on my zzzz's before my Uncles' next visit. Bye now...

My parents let my buddy, Longfellow, stay the whole week and man, what a week it was!! We were non-stop...taking turns bitting each other's excess neck skin, racing around the house, tugging back and forth on my toys. We took some naps with my Dad and even watched my new dog movie my parents bought me. Longfellow is cool and all, but he kept peeing in my parents house. I tried to work on it with him, but a Bug can't create miracles, you know!!
My aunt Emily came to stay with me this weekend while my parents were at my aunt Amanda's wedding. So many visitors! I told you I was popular.
I hear I'll be making a trip next week to visit my Hal. My Hal tells me he bought me a loofa dog that is bigger than I am. Oh Man!!

Well, my suspicions are confirmed...I am the best in my agility class. Just call me Michael Phelps!! On the eve on my dad's birthday, I ran the fastest time on my agility track at 53 seconds. Okay, okay, you got me...I was deducted 5 seconds for jumping off the teeter totter too early, but I was just so excited. That means everyone else in my class was eating my dust. My dad and I booked it!! See the below video to re-live my championship moment...
I think I will take more agility classes, seeing that I am practically a natural. And I have to say, I was the most popular competitor this season. I had several visitors: my great grandpa John, my grandma and grandpa Duke and Carol, and my dad's secretary Sandy. I really put the Bugg breed on the map, huh?
Here is a compilation of shots from this year's class, including some of my favorite fellow competitors, and of course, my trophy. The first of many I'm sure...Now if only I could convince my parents to feed me the type of breakfast that Michael Phelps eats each day.

Anyway, I understand my grandma and grandpa are going to come watch me at agility class on Thursday. Meanwhile, I will continue to gouge out the eyeballs of this Lobster my parents brought me from Boston. It's practically a carcass now. Yum!

Anyway, my mom and dad said they had a great trip. I'm glad to be back at my own pad now, since my grandma doesn't have a dog door. I like the freedom to come and go as I please. I'm a big boy now, afterall.
I hope I get to hang out with my homeboys again someday. They're coo', you know?! Gotta go...I have another agility class.
