HAPPY FLOWER DAY?

So, yesterday was another one of those human special-days. The flower store by our house was packed with people, so I thought it must be Flower Day or something. But when I asked my human about it, she kinda laughed and explained that flowers are part of the celebration, but not the reason for it.

What a surprise! Another special-day that seems like it's about one thing (like, say, Santa Claus), but is really about something else entirely (like Jesus' birthday). Why do humans always make the simplest things sooo confusing??

Anyway.

It turns out yesterday's special-day is one we all should celebrate: Mother's Day. Because we all have mothers, right? Uh, right. Except I haven't seen my mother since I was 5 months old. I mean, how can I celebrate someone I hardly know and will probably never see again?? I'm sure I totally loved my mom, but she kinda stopped being my mom when my human came along.

I've never heard of a special-day to celebrate our humans, have you? So I think we should pick a day and make Human's Day an official dog holiday. It'll be just like Mother's Day, but for our people. And we can celebrate it by eating some kind of tasty snack instead of buying a bunch of silly flowers.

Whaddya think??

You're brilliant Puglet! I say yes to any new tasty snack holiday. We can celebrate our humans by letting them give us extra belly rubs and then enjoying something super special like bacon or pie, or even better...both!

THE PUGLET said...

OOOOOOh - how bout Bacon Pie! That sounds awesome. Do you think the humans should get their own special pie too? Since it's their day and all.

Oh, and we need to pick a date. Some month that doesn't have any special days in it. Like.... June??

Ollie said...

June (or maybe even tomorrow) is perfect because the sooner I get some Bacon Pie (another great idea of yours!), the better. We'll just keep the special pie for ourselves and make our humans happy by looking really cute while eating it.
Although, if the humans get their own special tasty treat, we could get a portion of that as well.
I am really looking forward to this holiday :)

Hi Puglet! I'm totally in for the Human Day. I love anything bacony, but Mom will not eat it so more for me. I think a day in August would be perfect because there aren't any holidays in August.

There's no bacon in our house, Puglet... is there such thing as soy bacon? Doesn't sound nearly as tasty, but soy sausage is good. But, anything followed by pie sounds yum-my!
Your human is like your adoptive mom- so give her Happy Mother's Day wishes from your blog pug friends.
I do know that this human holiday prevented us from making it to PugSun yesterday.

Humom Day. He hee. That makes me laugh when I say it :)

Aren't the flowers pretty? We found them at the beach yesterday. They were just sitting on a bench, all alone. If it had been Humom Day, I would have taken them and given them to my human!

THE PUGLET said...

August is good! I forgot, my birthday is in June. Not like that's a holiday or anything, but it's kinda a special-day around here.

August it is. August what? Like, the first Sunday?

Lola said...

Definitely the first Sunday- then we can all get together and celebrate at SF PugSunday!
Oh yeah- and eat bacon pie together!

My mom says August would be perfect. It's during the "dog days of summer"

She's a dork, and knows all kinds of useless information like this.

Sequoia & Petunia said...

Ok just let us know when Human Day is and we will be right there celebrating with you Puglet!

THE PUGLET said...

YAY! A new dog holiday to celebrate our humans is now official.

Human's Day** will be the first Sunday of every August. I think the day should be celebrated with pie of some kind.

WooHoo!

** Even though I like the sound of 'Humom', some of us might just have dads so I think we should go with Human.

My "Humom" would love us to celebrate with you! We were hoping to make it to this month's SF PugSun but we did the Monterey County Wag n' Walk that Saturday. The Wn'W proved to be exhausting for me so we figured we'd catch you all some other month. Now, we'll HAVE to come up for Human Day!! Thanks, Puglet!

Wilma said...

I love it!! What great idea to celebrate our humoms with bacon.You, Puglet, are a genius. I believe I'll be vacationing on the Cape that Sunday (on the east coast the cape is Cape Cod) soI think there will have to be some kind of seafood.Probably scallops wrapped in bacon.

Yippee! I can't wait until Human Day! What a great idea... you are so great to get "the ball rollin'!" Puglet.
