When I got an email last week from Illinois-Missouri pug rescue about raising money to get a pug named Moochi a new snout, I was superexcited to chip in. I'm glad we were able to donate a little money, and I know our donation helped... but I wanted to help more. Give more.
Well. Thanks to my bud Stubby, I think I might have an idea. In case you missed it, last week Stubby blogged about a basketball player named Yao Ming who's using his fame to keep sharks out of soup. So.... what if I was famous like Yao Ming? Or, uh, Oprah?
If I was famous, I could raise loads of money to help pugs in need. I could put my pawprint on stuff and sell it on eBay. I could do appearances and let people pet me for a dollar. Humans love to pet me, I bet I could raise a ton of money that way.
And you all could be famous with me. Y'know, like an entourage or whatever. Pretty good idea, huh? I'm just not sure how to do it. I asked Google and got some really useless advice:
- Be the worst at something
- Identify urgent or dire needs of people and exploit them
- Contact famous people and ask them to help you
- Get a life (if you don't have one you can't be famous)
I guess maybe that stuff could help humans get famous, but I'm a pug. I need pug-friendly ways. Like winning eating contests or, uh...
