Ever see that movie where the guy who jumped on Oprah's couch is pretending to be a lawyer and demands to know the truth - and that Jack Nicholson dude yells at him and says "You can't HANDLE the truth!".
Well, that's pretty much how the interrogation scene went. Minus all the yelling.
I demanded that my human tell me the truth/secret, and when she told me the truth/secret, I totally couldn't handle it. So yeah, I did a little sulking yesterday. But you would too if you knew what I knew. Which is this:
The truth/secret is that my human is, officially, going to be taking pictures of stranger dogs from now on. Like, for a job. She's going to give away my cookies and play with other dogs and come home smelling like... ugh. Just thinking about it makes me hurt inside.
I guess its been going on part-time behind my back for awhile now - but from now on, she'll be cheating on me full-time. And it's kinda all YOUR fault, Daily Puglet readers.
Y'see, it all started last year, a few months after we started The Daily Puglet. My human kept getting emails from people, saying how much they liked my pictures. At the same time, my human was getting frustrated because there were pictures of me she wanted to take, but couldn't because she didn't have a "real" camera anymore. And she didn't have a "real camera" anymore because her gimpy brain couldn't remember how to use one.
But I guess frustration is stronger than gimpiness, because last May my human bought a new "real camera". She spent a whole year re-learning how to use it, and somewhere along the way, got the dumb idea to become a dog photographer. During the interrogation scene she admitted to taking more than 25,000 pictures of stranger dogs behind my back. What the ??
Anyway. The Seattle thing was the last piece of my human's evil plot. She went there to take a special dog photographer workshop. She learned all about business stuff - oh, yeah, and practiced taking pictures. Of pugs!!
Yeah. How totally uncool is that?
So there you have it. The secret. I'm sure you can understand why I'm not-so-happy about this news. And if you don't understand? Uh, go back and read the post where I confessed to being an "obnoxious camera hog".
