365 Photo Project - Day 130

Taken: May 10, 2010, 7 p.m.
Location: Healdsburg, CA

Another pug photo. My almost three-year-old pug, Chamuco.  This is a slice of my life that's very easy to show you -- one of the faces I see every day.  I love this look of his, too. One thing I love about pugs is they all seem to have very distinctive personalities and they're very clear about letting you know about them.

Chamuco is much friendlier and cuddlier than my old man pug, Louie, who seeks out your attention only when he wants it. Chamuco always wants to be around you and he's constantly "asking" to get in your lap even during dinner, no matter how hard we've tried to get him not to beg at the table. At night, he crawls under the covers and always sleeps next to my husband but come morning,  he'll sit on top of me as soon as I wake up.

Mischievous doesn't begin to describe his personality.  Half the time when he does something "bad," he sneaks off to do it in another room. The boy knows his place -- he just won't mind it.

Lots of times he'll sit as he is in this photo, against a wall, a door or his dog bed and give us The Look. This gaze has different meanings depending on the time of day and the situation but no matter what he's done,  it's hard not to forgive him when he looks up at you with that face.

Shot this with my K100D and edited in Photoshop.
