My name is Terry
Buffington and I am a professional artist. Along with doing commercial art
projects for businesses I sketch my Pugs, Aphrodite,
Persephone and Pandora, Gaia, Calliope and Mercury doing all the
wonderful cute goofy mysterious things Pugs do on a daily basis
and there sure are a lot of them aren't there?Return
This site contains Original paintings,
prints, note cards and other various types of fine art and functional
art that I have created. I have striven to give you the best
quality on all of the articles I am selling, it is important
to me as a Pug lover myself to represent the breed in a light
hearted yet fine art manner. All of the items on this website
are made by hand by me, none of my items are mass produced or
Since I started selling
my little drawings in December of 1999 I have been surprised
and delighted by all the wonderful responses I have received
from many of you. I am pleased to state that Pug owned people
are a special breed themselves and I want you to know I enjoy
every email that we exchange. I am always trying to expand my
little shop with additional items created to entice the Pug lover
in all of us. I hope over time to write additional stories and
create other such items that will enhance the breed that Aphrodite
is a part of and give all the Pug owned people out there a place
where they can get Pug items that they know were created by someone
that loves Pugs as much as they do.
My Pugs Adopted Me
is the first Pug that adopted me. She is my most beloved little
Pug and stole my heart the very first day that I saw her. She
is a Pet store Pug and I feel very fortunate that she has been
such a healthy happy little girl all these years. When I bought
her I had no idea of the history behind the pet stores you see
at so many malls. I only found out after I purchased her that
she came from a puppy mill in Missouri and that she was much
too young to have been taken away from her mother and shipped
half way across the country. She is the light of my life and
I feel honored to have been given the opportunity to be her mother.
little sisters arrived in a rather different manner. I in fact
was introduced to them through one of my clients who has since
become like a sister to me and whom the girls call Gwamma. She
knew Aphrodite was wishing for a sister and contacted me when
one of her Pugs became pregnant. Since she is not a breeder and
the manner in which it happened involved an emergency hospital
trip for her and Pug sitting services by friends at a moments
notice. Kizzy the girls Mommy was not fixed due to a medical
condition so when she was staying with the other Pug she ...well...
had a REALLY good time, LOL. When all returned home and she turned
up pregnant Barb was mortified she told me she felt like her
teenager came home pregnant from the prom! Haa haa haa. Any way
since Kizzy was a Rescue she didn't feel right about "selling"
the puppies but since she also had many of her own she really
wasn't in a position to keep them. She remembered that Aphrodite
wanted a little sister and contacted me to see if I wanted one
of the puppies if it were a girl. I jumped at the chance and
in the end got both Persephone and Pandora instead of just Persephone.
The sisters are both black which makes a nice counter balance
to Didee's Fawn coloring. Persephone is my tiniest at 15lbs and
though she is tiny she is MIGHTY! She keeps me on my toes 24/7.
Her sister Dora is completely opposite she is my largest girl
though not fat she is just broader than the other 2. She is also
a very calm sweet angelic child that rarely if ever gets in trouble.
Callie arrived in my life after the passing of my beloved Aphrodite. My little bundle of joy, the most precious thing in the world to me. She came from a wonderful breeder and has champion bloodlines. She insists that I say she is royalty. My Little Princess.
Mercury, my one and only boy, adopted ME. I was baby
sitting him and his litter mates when he had the nerve to decide I was his Mommy and that he would have no other. I never wanted a boy but BOY OH BOY has ever ever been a surprise. He is my teddy bear, my champion, my one and only. A through and through Mamas Boy that I can't believe I am lucky enough to have.
The final arrival was Gaia; the house guest that decided to never leave. She is our parimeter guard and walks the fence and house diligently each day keeping an eye out for vicious leaves and unruly flowers. A quiet sweet girl that is the happiest, most joyful, Pug I have ever met.
I love ALL
my babies to bits and cannot even begin to imagine my life without
them in it. They have made me a better person and an even better

am often asked how long it will take for someone to get an order
from me once placed. Since EVERYTHING I sell is designed, created,
packaged and shipped by ME I ask that you allow a bit extra time
for arrival of your items than you would if you placed your order
with say a huge company like Amazon Books. I do my best to fill
orders on a First In - First Out basis BUT if you order a handpainted
item that I have to let cure and then bake this takes a bit extra
time and while I am waiting for these types of items I generally
move on to the next order on the list and fill it. Then once
your item is ready to ship I fill yours. As I said above its
just me here with the Pugs and they for some reason refuse to
do manual labor they say they are Goddesses and Goddesses do
not work! LOL, but what this means for you is that there are
times, especially around major holidays, when I get a lot of
orders and things take a bit longer to leave the studio. I make
EVERY attempt to get holiday orders out in time so that they
arrive at their destination before the big day. I post order
deadlines for the holidays on my website as soon as I find out
the deadline from the post office for final mail days.
Basically I ask that you allow me 2 weeks to get you your order
unless I have a time delay posted on my website. A commissioned
painting can take up to a month to complete depending on your
choices and my schedule, IF you MUST have your portrait by a
set date email me BEFORE placing your commission order and I
will let you know if it is feasible or not. Thank you.
understand at times that you purchase something that just doesn't
meet with your needs and you want to return it. I gladly accept
returns with a few exceptions. Once you receive an original it
cannot be returned. Any one-of-a-kind item once received cannot
be returned. Ebay auction items cannot be returned. You are responsible
for paying return shipping and making sure items arrive back
here in an undamaged condition. This means items cannot have
been removed from their plastic storage bag or box on your end
and must be returned to me with their storage bag or box intact.
Once I receive the item from you I will credit you back for its
purchase price. All Shipping fees are non refundable.
take great care in packaging all the items I sell. If you happen
to recieve an item damaged please immediately take it along with
the box it came in to your local post office. You must take the
original shipping box with the shipping label showing it was
Insured, along with any packaging, the broken item, and your
receipt with you to post office. If you need me to re-email you
an invoice showing that you paid for insurance and how much you
paid please email me and I will gladly do so. Breakable items
are shipped insured and you need to request your money back from
the post office, I cannot do this for you as they must see the
broken item as proof. The post office personnel can help you
with any forms you need to fill out in order to get your money
refunded. Once you have received your refund from the post office
and you would like to re-order the broken item please re-visit
the website and place a new order. Since you will have gotten
your money back from the post office for the damaged item you
will not be out any money. If your package is lost entirely please
contact me and I will start a search through the USPS Priority
Mail tracking system. If the post office cannot locate the package
they will refund to me the insured amount and once I recieve
that I will re-ship you out your order at no expense to you.
If you have any questions concerning shipping of insured items
please contact me or visit the USPS.com website
Once on the
USPS website do a search on insurance claims to find more information
and even forms online.
