Puggy Night is a Post-Impressionist Masterpiece

Van Gogh never painted anything this cute!

We named this work, “Puggy Night,” as it’s clearly inspired by the famous Post-Impressionist masterpiece Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh.

As long as there are Pugs, there is a desire to represent their cuteness.

Paintings are a wonderful way to accomplish this devotion!

We are thrilled that the artist choose the combined inspiration of Post-Impressionism with adorable Pugs.

Unfortunately, we do not know who the clearly talented artist is of Puggy Night.

Please contact us if you know.

Van Gogh never painted anything so cute

Puggy Night vs Starry Night

If Vincent Van Gogh were a Pug lover, which he likely was, he probably would have painted a Puggy Night.

As you can see below, the likeness is truly amazing.

We’re not sure why a Pug is not in Starry Night itself!

It’s all a puggy, starry, crazy dream!

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY FROM JOIN THE PUGS

Pug lovers, no holiday gives us more pleasure or fun than July 4th! To us, July 4th is more than a holiday, it represents the ideals of freedom and tolerance for all hoomans the world over.

Now, we’re not crazy, we know the world is not perfect. If it was, Pugs would not be needed! However, the July 4th holiday is a day that we believe everyone can believe in regardless of nationality, race, age, or creed.

In fact, even cat lovers can even love July 4th!

Happy July 4th from Join the Pugs

Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves. We love cats, too.

This July 4th holiday, don’t forget to smother your Puglet with hugs and kisses! We’re sure they will be happy to return the favor. And keep the ideas of freedom and tolerance in your heart that millions have fought for over the ages.

Cici the Ducati Pug

A Ducati Pug is OK by us!

Some Pugs are born to be wild! Cici the Ducati Pug is one of them.

Here, she is learning the subtleties of her new Ducati 899 from her hooman.

You may say, “Isn’t Cici a bit small for such a powerful bike?”

Cici says, “Heck no! I wanted the Monster 1200 R but I was talked out of it. My human thought I was pushing it.”

“Remember to always brake in a strait line, Cici. I want you to be safe,” says her hooman.

Ducati is preferred by 3 out of 5 Pugs

Yes, it’s hard to believe it as there are so many phenomenal bikes these days, but Pugs say they love the Italian style and handling on the road.

And did you know every step of every process in every Ducati bike’s creation is signed by the individual who did the work!

Ducati is the Ferrari of sport bikes and Pugs want the best!

Which brings us back to Cici the Pug and her sport bike loving ways. Check out her Instagram profile right here.

Talk to the Paw says Suki the Pug

As The Fresh Prince said, Parents Just Don’t Understand!

And Will Smith was right. I’m busy here, talk to the paw!

Why does my mom need to get all up in my face when I’m sleeping? It’s not cool.

Listen, I’m not playing around when I need a nap. It’s my holy hour … hours, OK sometimes more.

Talk to the Paw says Suki the Pug
Napping is my right

Listen, napping is not a privilege – it’s a right! Nothing is more important than my sleep.

OK, food is more important than my sleep, but you better have some food if you wake me up!

So you understand, the order goes food, sleep, food, napping, treats, late night sleep, and food.

Sincerely, Suki the Pug

Enjoy the 90’s

The Fresh Prince drops the wisdom.

Over to you, Puglover

Happy Mother’s Day Pug Lover

Join the Pugs wishes you a Happy Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a special day each year we set aside to honor all the hardworking Pug moms of the world.

Oh, maybe you thought Mother’s Day was about all moms? It’s a good guess, but simply not true.

President Donald Trump officially *changed Mother’s Day from all mothers to Pug mothers only in a special White House ceremony in 2017.

Now, the holiday is solely focused on all the special Pug moms of the world – exclusively.

Happy Mother's Day Pug by VikingMops

Thank you to our dear friends at @VikingMops Pugtogrophy for this beautiful photo.

Mother’s Day and its beginnings

Did you know that the modern Mother’s Day began in the United States at the initiative of Ann Reeves Jarvis in 1908?

However, moms had previously been celebrated by the ancient Greeks and Romans, and early Christian cultures in the Western World.

According to Wikipedia, which is never wrong, we can thank President Wilson for making the holiday legit across the land:

In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.

But did you know…

Perhaps you remember President Woodrow Wilson from history class as the man who helped end The Great War and founded the League of Nations, the forerunner to the United Nations.

Did you know that Wilson became a widow while in office and nine months later married the 42 year old Edith Bolling Galt, a.k.a Edith Wilson?

Edith Wilson was the ELEVENTH daughter of her dear mother who deserves a shrine in her right!

Edith claimed a lineage of southern aristocracy extending back to Pocahontas, the 17th century Native American woman who married into the English settlement at Jamestown.

The former first lady also lived from October 15, 1872 to December 28, 1961. That’s an astounding 89 years starting less than a decade after the Civil War!

Mrs. Wilson was extremely fond of Pugs and was often **quoted as saying that she owed her longevity to their company.

Take that, History Class!

Lastly…

We love great Pug stories! Please drop us a line anytime right here and…

Happy Mother’s Day to all Pug Moms

* Oh, and we made this up about Trump at the beginning, but admit that you believed it for a second.

** OK, we technically made this up too, but how else do you account for her living to nearly 90?

Happy Easter from Join the Pugs and Viking Mops!

🐰 Happy Easter Pug lovers from Viking Mops and Us!

Hello friend! We hope you and your family have a Happy Easter holiday this year.

We are excited to share this super cute photo with you courtesy of our long-time friends Viking Mops Pugtogrophy.

Viking Mops has brought the cuteness to you even longer than Join the Pugs!

Every photo is taken by Wendy Davenschot master Pugtogropher and Pug lover hailing from beautiful Zwolle in the Netherlands.

Happy Easter from Join the Pugs and Viking Mops

Viking Valdemar has a fascinating history

The cuteness in this photo emanates from Valdemar the Viking Pug of Wendy’s family who has won a plethora of awards across Europe!

Valdemar is named after the rich history of Danish kings.

The name comes from Old Norse, which, in turn, came from the Germanic name Waldemar, and literally translates as “famous ruler.”

We told you Valdemar comes from a rich Pug history!

As mentioned, Valdemar hails from the gorgeous city of Zwolle in the Northeast section of Holland.

Zwolle was founded around 800 CE by merchants and troops of Charlemagne!

Wow, that’s a long time ago, especially to American Pugs like us!

Incidentally, name Zwolle is derived from the Dutch word word for “hill” or “to swell” because Zwolle was established in area of rolling hills.

What does this have to do with a Happy Easter?

Great question, and we’re glad you asked!

If you love Pugs as we do, you’re part of a rich history and vast global network of those who recognize Pugs as magical, whimsical, snugglicious cuties!

Doesn’t it feel great to know you’re only a tiny piece of the Pug puzzle?

It means that Pug love is an endless tide!

In fact, there are Chinese artifacts that depict Pugs from 2,500 years ago.

Do you have pawsome Pug facts?
