I've got some good news about Team Puglet, but this isn't The Daily Puglet Contest blog, so first let's talk lobsters.
So we had our first big rain here this week and lots of places got flooded. And I guess when things get flooded, things happen that usually don't. Y'know, cars float. Mud slides. And herds of lobsters invade my local park. Seriously.
The park was closed because of the flooding/high winds but we went in anyway because we'd been cooped up inside all day and my human wanted us tired. We snuck in the back way, then did our usual lap on a dirt trail around the lake. I checked out the ducks, Brother Dutch chased imaginary squirrels. Some trees were on the ground, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Until we got to the main path in the park and saw all these, uh, creatures walking towards the main parking lot. And there weren't just one or two of them. There were LOTS. Like, more than a hundred. They were bigger than a humans hand and red with giant claws and a funny flipper tail. They looked just like a toy lobster we have that makes bubble noises when you chew on it.
Of course brother Dutch was afraid of them.
Two ladies were putting lobsters into a giant bag and my human thought they must be trying to save them, so she helped gather them up. Then I heard one lady say, "Tastes good with soy sauce" and saw my human give her a weird look. She stopped helping after that.
Another man was trying to herd the lobsters off the path, so they wouldn't die, he said. My human helped him instead. I tried to help, but one of the lobsters almost pinched me in the face, so I just watched after that.
Team Puglet News!
Arizona Pug Rescue, Green Mountain Pug Rescue (Vermont) and Illinois Pug & Boston Terrier Rescue have all joined Team Puglet.
We're going to the CA Pug specialty show on Saturday to take pictures and recruit new team members.
Starting Saturday, dailypuglet.com will take voters to a special page with all the info about the contest (a link to vote will be added monday). Hopefully, this will make it easy for people to join Team Puglet and/or vote. Don't worry, if you usually get here using that address, you'll still be able to.
Tomorrow: we all pick a picture to enter and I'll reveal Jack the Labrador's master plan.
