Barking Mad: The Pug Story Part 2


In case you missed it, you can find part 1 here.


So today I travelled a total of 160 miles to meet my puppy! All day yesterday my stomach was giddy with butterflies and it wasn’t a lot better this morning. I was so excited! I set my alarm for 7am so I had plenty of time to let my nerves calm and get ready to leave just after 9. I had arrange with Elaine to visit her at 11, and because I had to travel on the busy M25 I wanted to make sure I had plenty of time to get there.


Thankfully it was a very smooth, eventless journey into West Sussex and I arrived just before 11. I knew on pulling up to the house that it was the right one because there was a pug sign outside the gate. Loved it!

Elaine met me at the gate and we walked into her home together, where we were greeted by a beautiful black pug – I knew right away I was going to be in my element here.


We went through into the lounge and attached was a conservatory with a pen full of beautiful pug puppies.


All the ones with collars have owners waiting to pick them up.


So adorable!


I’ve always known that I want a fawn coloured pug, but I was sort of undecided on whether I wanted a girl or a boy. Luckily Elaine had both a girl and a boy so we had them both out on the carpet for a bit of pug playtime while I made a decision.

It was a tough call because obviously they were both so cute. I liked the little boy because he sat and had strokes with you. And I liked the little girl because she was a bundle of joy.

In the end though I made my decision, and I went for the little girl. Meet Polly the Pug!


I went for the girl in the end because Elaine told me that the girls stay smaller than the boys and to be honest the smaller the better! But a pug is a pug! I’m absolutely delighted!


I got my date book out and marked a very important date in there today:


As if I would ever forget! Polly comes home in two weeks time on the first of February! Time to get the house ready for pug mayhem!

I can’t believe it – I’m getting a pug! x
