The Beauty and Charm of Teeny the Pug.

You all know the old saying, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Well, it's true. Most things I find to be pretty, others are quick to say "that's the ugliest thing I've ever seen." I shrug my shoulders and hope someday they will see the light.

For those of you who have visited my blog may already be aware that my tastes are a bit eccentric. I love big noses, fuzzy men and over-bred goldfish.

My God! Just look at that gorgeous little water baby!

Over time, I have come to realize that I am not the only person to feel this way. I think my dolls can be a little ornery and some people like ornery. And, it goes without saying, that I am extremely grateful for it.

Now when I was growing up, my grandmother was given a blond Pekingese puppy. As the puppy grew, this beautiful face emerged. Oh she was a delightful little dog. I loved hearing her snort and watching her curled little tongue bounce up and down when she would pant. So I feel that now it is only natural that I love Pugs. I think I like their faces better than Pekingese only because of the shorter hair and more box-like shape to their heads.

Beautiful blond lion!

Such a stoic face.

So this week, I decided to roll around in my weirdness and make a doll which is very close to my heart. My subject is the Pug. My doll, Teeny represents my affection for wall-eyes and wrinkled noses.

After I published this post, I quickly realized that I forgot to mention my affection for Persian cats. So here is a shout out to those beautiful felines!

What a doll!

Let's not forget the cranky and power-hungry villain, Mr. Tinkles from "Cats & Dogs."

Oh, she's brilliant! and yes, she IS beautiful. For me, it's not pugs, it's the traditional British Bulldog. It's the combination of that face, those Queen Anne forelegs and the dancing gait of the hind limbs.
