The other day I heard my human laughing hysterically at something on the computer. This happens sometimes so I didn't think much of it. Until she looked at me and said (still laughing) Pugs in Spaaaaaaace!!!
I thought maybe all the recent Flattie making had made her a bit nutso. But then she pointed at the computer and there it was: a pug. in space. Well maybe not really in space? But definitely dressed up like a spaceman. And totally up in the sky. With stars and stuff. And a giant floating dog biscuit.
I don't know why the space pug made my human laugh so hard - I think it's the coolest thing I've ever seen. And seeing it made me want to go to space too. It said right on the picture that pugs will be in space on May 15, 1-4pm. That's THIS weekend!! I told my human that we absolutely have to go. We MUST.
But she explained that Pugs in Space isn't really pugs going to space. It's the "theme" for this year's Pugagpalooza in Virginia.
MY HUMAN: Pugapalooza. It's a fund raiser. For pug rescue. Your flat self will be there!
ME: Oh. Why can't I go too?
MY HUMAN: Because it's in Virginia and we live in California - about 3,000 miles too far away.
When I asked why we don't we have Pugapawhattas here, she didn't have an answer. I mean, we have a pug rescue and lots of pugs in need. Shouldn't we have something like that too? I asked Google about it and found out that LOTS of places have Pug Fests and Pug Parties and Pug-o-Ramas. But not us.
Do you have a Pugapawhatta-type thingy where you live?? And is anyone here going to be a pug in space this weekend???
