Porky managed to pick up and carry home a live toad during his evening walk. We had no idea he had it in his mouth until he spit it out into his sister, Petunia’s, dog bed. I went over to see what he carried home (it’s usually leaves, rocks, sticks) and his “prize” jumped out of the bed and scared me half to death. I caught it before he could pick it up again and let the poor thing go outside. It seemed to have survived it’s Pug Abduction unscathed. Porky was a little irritated at the loss of his catch.
Porky and Petunia!! Their names crack me up!!
Porky & Petunia Pug? Best Pug names ever. Cant stop giggling about it 🙂
I have a Sprocker (Springer x Cocker) that regularly finds baby bunnies (sometimes still hairless!) and brings them in the house (unscathed) to hide under the coffee table. My spaniel wants a pet
bunny in the WORST way.. All I can think of is the Bugs Bunny routine “I will call him George, and I will love him, and hug him, and…” 😉
HAHAH! If u get him a pet bunny, you must name it George 🙂
The idea of what must have been going through that toad’s mind is cracking me up! (On a side note, our cat once brought home a live mouse and dropped it on b/f’s pillow in the middle of the night.)
My dog has made friends with the toad that has taken up residents on our patio/deck. We’ve named the toad Jabba.
That’s hilarious! Mine tries to smuggle in turds. I can always tell she has one,by the way she looks at me and how shes holding her mouth. They are worse than little kids!
OMG Porky looks just like my TRULI – tooth and all – brindles are so rare.. may I ask where you got him ? I wonder if we have doggie siblings
Porky came from a breeder in Walker, West Virginia, named Denise. She has kept close tabs on him via facebook his whole life and continues to share his pics, etc. His pug momma is named Black Dahlia and his pug daddy is Baron Von Brindle. I keep in contact with a friend in Chicago who has one of Porky’s half siblings, a little girl named Angel.
That is hilarious!! Dogs are so funny – my Husky picked up a stunned bird in her mouth and we had no idea until 1) She tried to bark with her mouth closed (mmFFFffff), and 2) we heard the peeping bird coming from her!

Ok, this is the best dogshaming ever. I love his cute indignant little face. Seriously, I may quit dogshaming now because nothing will top him lol.
I have poisonous toads in my yard. My dogs have never messed with them, although they see them hopping around all the time…until…I had a group of 5 foster puppies who followed my dog around like, well, puppies. He decides to show off for them and licks one of the toads. Poor guy was frothing at the mouth and rubbing his face. I had to rinse it out with the garden hose.
he looks so innocent 🙂 i can believe he was shocked about his loss
Porky & Petunia LOL!!!!!!!!! Pugs are so silly…
