    Hello everyone!!
    I posted this fellow a couple of years ago, but felt him worthy of posting again. He's a lifesize Pug made of solid cast aluminum. I get a lot of comments from visitors and passersby. This fellow was solid black when I took possession of him. So, I decided to paint him to look more realistic. He's extremely detailed, from his skin folds right down to his nails. He measures 11.5" tall and 15" long and weighs nearly 22 lbs. In regards to it's age, I don't believe he's vintage quite yet. Hope you enjoy seeing him as much as I do.

    Thanks to you all for stopping in for a look!!!!

    Scott

      I never happened to see one life size made of cast aluminum. I have seen life size made of pewter, brass, concrete and bronze. What I find a bit more unusual is that he faces to the left.

      fhrjr2,
      It's the first and only cast aluminum figure I own. The original black paint had started to chip and that's when I discovered it was aluminum. I've always loved the nice detailing of this one. Wish I knew who made this fella. Any suggestions?

      jscott0363 Any of the life size ones I have seen were made in other countries to be used on a patio or in a garden setting. They were to large for what I was collecting at the time so I pretty much overlooked the details about them.

      Thomas,
      He hasn't nipped anyone yet. Just don't make any sudden moves:)

      Pugs are the most gentle creatures on Earth. We always have a pug in our life. Shoo-How, Digit, Han-Wan... all fawn males like your wonderful statue. And my favorite Doug the pug, most loyal dog on the planet, followed me up mountains, when he wasn’t supposed too!Last dog I will ever own. When he passed, a part of me did too.
      Now my daughter has a black female, Betty who has the perfect pug tail ( two twists) but she’s insane. Ran into the fence in the dark barking at a squirrel and popped out her eye. Yes, the vet saved it and her sight. Sigh....
      I just love all your animal statues!
      Such happy collection...

      Thank you Ms.CrystalShip!!! I've never owned a Pug, only Dachshunds, which seem to stay wired 24/7. Always full of energy. I've always wanted a Pug, but my wife loves her Dachshunds and ruled out a Pug.
      It's really difficult when you lose a pet that have literally became a part of your family. I've been there 4 times already. I guess I'm a glutton for punishment:)

      Ms.CrystalShip yes they are fine pets...............except they snore so loud the windows shake. Ours used to lay upside down on a huge papasan pillow and it still shook the windows. I finally kept a sneaker beside the bed and when he woke me with his snoring I smacked the floor with the sneaker to wake him. Then it was a race to see who got to sleep first.

      Fhrjr2, thanks for the laugh! And you are so right, they snore horribly loud!
      If I'm over at my Daughters watching my Grandsons and we are trying to watch a movie, Betty has to be in the middle of all of us. And she drowns out the TV! Ha!
      Gotta love em though, so good hearted!'

      Hi Eileen,
      We have rescue Mountain Cur mix and she snores loudly, but not like a Pug or Bulldog. There's a movie on Netflix called "Patrick". If you love Pugs you'll want to see Patrick the Pug.
    18. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 2 years ago
      Thanks Scott, I'm watching the boys tonight so my daughter and hubby can go to a bluegrass festival. We will be watching Patrick the Pug. Betty also barks at anything walking, ugh..so she will definitely will be making some noise. Yes, she barks at animals on the TV.
    19. jscott0363 jscott0363, 2 years ago
      You'll love "Patrick". We watched it last night and truly enjoyed it.

      So one day your going to post a picture of all your cast iron animals on your lawn for us to see all of them at once ... what a work of art that would be ...hmmmmmmmmmmmm..later bud .
    24. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 months ago
      Theonlyone,
      Lol, that might be quite an undertaking!! I have so many packed away in trunks and those trunks happen to be staked in our storage facility. When I retire, in a couple years from now, I'll take everything out of storage and sort thru it. That's when I might be able to group them all together for a photo op:)
