Mugged.

I've got two furry rascals living with me and they never seem to run out of puppy shannanigans to get themselves into.  After seeing this pug mug on Pinterest, I knew I had to create mugshots for my own little outlaws to commemorate their mischievous puppyhoods:

W A N T E D


Don't let those adorable faces fool you, these two have managed to wrangle themselves into just about all the puppy trouble they can find.  They've destroyed carpet and window screens and chewed just about everything they can sink their teeth into.  They've tracked in so much mud on rainy days that my floor is now a nice permanent shade of orange. Many brawls have been started over coveted plush toys and a few plants have been murdered by their digging in the yard. They've also taken it upon themselves to torment the neighbors with episodes of endless barking and even frighten small children from time to time.

All in all these two are bad to the bone (and luckily, they are cute enough to get away with it).  I mean, with mugs like that, how could you not forgive even the worst puppy offense?  You know, home destruction and sanity is fleeting, but puppy love, now that is forever.

Do you have any mischevious pet stories to tell?  Please, please tell me my pups aren't the only bad boys on the block :)

And now, my pups' theme song.  Go on, press play... you know you want to.  This song will be stuck in your head all day, and you are so very welcome. ;)

  4. haha, they are sooo darn cute! well i think you already know from my ole
    blog that salvador is a hot mess, ha! eating furniture and everything/anything from the ground, getting prescribed cat hair ball laxative, and constantly rubbing his face on dead bugs in the grass (weird?). but i wouldn't trade him for the world :)

    1. Cat hairball laxative, really?!! I guess when you've got that much fur, you're bound to make it a substantial part of your diet... lol.

      Tanner has an infatuation with bugs too, but he normally goes for the live ones, like he's hunting or something. Ferocious bug killer that one.

      Got to love our furry pups! :)

  5. Seriously trying to convince my husband that we need a puppy -- or some kind of pet! These faces could get away with murder, too cute!

    1. You do need a puppy!

      Keep pestering your husband, he'll cave eventually. ;)

      Seriously though, you'll both love having a little furball, trouble and all.

  6. How cute are they!? I love to watch other peoples bad puppies, but I might loose my mind if they were mine. Reminds me of Marley and Me.

    1. Soooo Marley and Me. Based on their bad behavior, I think I might need a book and a movie deal. Too bad the title 'Bad Boys' is already taken. lol. ;)

  7. They totally had me fooled. So cute!!! My pup is so lazy. She likes to sleep instead of chew stuff up, but she did chew up my favorite pair of sunglasses once! Haha. But she's so cute I forgave her pretty quickly. ♥ Lindsay

    1. Awww, sweet lazy pup. I hope my boys will settle down more after they get out of the puppy stage.

      I can't ever buy expensive sunglasses. Not because my puppies eat them, but because I always manage to lose them. I'm such a scatter brain.

  8. I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog... because these fur babies are ADORABLE! I have a 2 year old pug that thinks it is his job to bark at every other dog on the planet... such a little baby jerk, but he is the best cuddler this side of the Mississippi! haha

      And.... baby jerk, huh? lol. I love that term. Mind if I steal it?

  9. haha. Regardless of all the damages, dogs are the best :) Yours look sweet.

    My family dog luckily isn't too much into destroying things, but had a really hard time controlling his bladder when he was a puppy. I remember one time he was so excited and started peeing, but he knew it was bad so he started to run down the stairs to go outside. He peed on every single stair on the way down. It was the worst cleaning up. I would have much rather had him stay in one spot!

    1. Awww, funny story. I can't imagine having to clean pee off an entire staircase. Potty training is so much work. Totally worth it though. I love my pups so much, trouble and all. :)

  10. Lol this is too cute! My pup is a rescue from a shelter and he's the CUTEST Maltese you will ever see but he is SO grumpy. He hates children and in general doesn't seem to like much of anyone he doesn't see daily. It's such a bummer but he is adorable!

    1. That's exactly why they are so stinkin' cute, to make up for the trouble making (and grumpiness) ;)

      Malteses are ADORABLE!! :)

    My little dog Frankie gets in all sorts of trouble too, but that's part of the fun i think!

    1. Hi Trishie! Good point.... if our pups were too good, we wouldn't have any hilarious 'bad' puppy stories to tell, now would we?!! ;)

  12. haha!! I love this!! Too cute - those faces are adorable. What a great idea (you should make this a holiday card!).

  20. i can't believe how much like my mad pointer cross your black and white pup is. We are on the Med. island of Gozo (next to Malta) and our dog came from the local SPCA. He is nearly two now and thankfully has stopped chewing stuff, except for his blanket, oh...and empty plastic plant pots, which drive him to distraction! Apparently when they are two years old they start to calm down a bit.....Hmmmm..

  21. Hi Min! It sounds like our two pups could be twins!! ;)

    Both of my pups are two years old now and still 'bad to the bone'. lol! Maybe 3 years old will be better??!! Anyways, their shenanigans keeps life interesting! :)

    And, WOW! Gozo must be amazing! I'm dying to visit the Mediterranean!
