HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! We remember and thank all of the brave men and women who have given their lives in service to this country. Did you know that dog🐾 teams also served alongside our soldiers and that there is a National Monument dedicated to military dogs in San Antonio Texas ?
We honor all of the lives sacrificed to keep us safe and free! Wishing everyone a wonderful Memorial Day! #itsaWUFFlife #WUFFgang#memorialdaydog
On this beautiful summer day the park today was full of little dogs, so I returned from my walk filled with doggie love! So I thought to show you this adorable Rockingham pug dog (and see my post a while ago about the pug couple I also have), made in about 1835. There is a story to our love for pugs, and yes it involves jumping on faces!
In the 18th Century there was hardly a lady without a pug, particularly in Britain and the Netherlands. Queen Victoria famously had a pug. The love story with pugs started in 1568 with William the Silent, the Prince of The Netherlands, ancestor to the current Dutch King and founder of the modern state of The Netherlands. William led a rebellion against the Spanish Habsburg occupiers of Northern Europe. He had a pug, Pompey, who alerted him one night to an assassination attempt by jumping on his face to wake him up, saving his life. To show his gratitude, William the Silent made him the official Royal Dog of The Netherlands, kicking off a new fashion all over Northern Europe - it became a political statement of sovereign independence. His great-grandson William III, who about 120 years later became the much-despised King of England, Scotland and Ireland, took the fashion to Britain - this was of course an irony, as the pug dog originally symbolised sovereign independence! Today we see a new revival of pugs among the young hipster generation - our local London coffee house is full of them on a Saturday afternoon.
My mother, who left this world a couple of years ago, had a little pug when she was an art student - so I thought to give her a dog again ❤️🐶🎨
You can find this sweetie (as well as the couple) in my shop, see link in bio - or direct message me for info 🐕

Honestly 🌴🌞! Where is Nikki Beach on a Sunday when you need it 😛. LOL. We don’t mind living in the twilight zone so long as everyone is right there with us, although at this point it’s getting a little old. More hugs, more grooming appointments (for the humans too!), and more FUN! On every serious note our hearts❤️ are with every shop and business owner who is freshly opening their doors, and with every person who is still navigating the new terrain in whatever capacity they be navigating. Wishing everyone a week of health, joy and prosperity ahead. And puppy love, of course 🐾 PS ❤️ you @carolinestanbury 💋
