Photos with DSLR

Mimi is not camera shy and stares right at the lens, so taking Mimi's photograph is easy. We try to use using natural lighting if possible as Mimi hates the flash since it irritates her eyes. Needless to say, we had fun using our new camera, although it did costs us quite a lot. Here's some photos we are going to send over for the annual calendar contest by .The contest is free to enter and when the calendars go on sale, a portion of the calendar sales will benefit Compassionate Pug Rescue.

Welcome Mimi Girl


My name is Mimi and I was 5 months old on 3 August 2007. I'm a black pug and my Kennel Club name is Asoka. I was 1 of 5 borned from a fawn pug Daddy and black pug Mommy. All of my brothers and sisters have found nice homes, 2 of them live nearby in Bangsar and I hear they travel to the United Kingdom with their Daddy and Mommy ... oooh lucky lucky them. My other 2 siblings have moved to a place far away.

I went to live with Coolboy and Nicejellybean a while after my adopted brother, Donut went to Rainbow Bridge at 2 years old. Actually, I would love to meet my Bro cos I hear he was a cool gentlepug, very playful, and a handsome boy.

When I arrived into this world I weighed 1.2 kg and was a blur little black pup with an odd smell. I now weigh over 4 kgs and looking prettier each day, especially since I got my first grooming last week. I have completed all 3 vaccinations and was pronounced a healthy pug on my last Vet visit.

I have a good appetite and always finish my food during mealtimes. I am working hard on avoiding my paws getting filthy whilst peeing and pooing which is a constant headache for my new owners. For fun, I play fetch with Coolboy, steal socks, find toys, rugs and toilet rolls to chew and learning to play catch-me-if-you-can. Some people wonder if I look more of a cat than a pug since my tail's down most times, my coat's shinny and smooth and I walk around mysterious like a cat. Or the black panther ? ... growl.

On a side note, my pretty face always appears real black on photoshots when taken with the old Casio camera, in fact like a huge black ghost because of my colour. Nobody could see my face clearly so my new Daddy bought a DSLR camera Nikon D40 with 6 megapixels, just to capture my cute face and post nice looking pictures for my Fans ! I am so touched.

Well, I hope you'll enjoy reading about all my adventures.

Lot of Licks,
Mimi Girl
