BECAUSE FOOD *IS* LOVE

So I heard on TV that Monday is Love Day or something. The special-day when humans give flowers and chocolate and stuff that says "I love you". I don't know why anyone would want to get a bunch of flowers when they grow, like, everywhere. And I don't know how chocolate says I love you because I'm a dog and chocolate can kill me. But human special-days never really make any sense so I guess this one is no different.

Since my human's gimpiness has gotten in the way of my blogging, I was able to guilt her into making this year's Love Day more dog-friendly. Y'know, since we can't eat chocolate and flowers are only good for peeing on. And what better way is there to say I love you than with cookies??

Even though my human always says food is not love whenever I try to guilt her into giving me an extra snack or two (or five), she's not a pug. Or a beagle. Or a golden retriever. Or even a kitty. To us, food is totally love. So it only makes sense that celebrate Love Day with food. Right?

Right.

So. To celebrate Love Day, I'm going to give some lucky someone their very own Bubba Rose cookie book. We'll use the Randomizer thing again to pick the winner because random = fair. If you already have one, or are a kitty - you can still enter to win it for a hungry, cookie loving friend.

** Just make sure you comment on this post by Midnight, February 14th **

If you forget how the Randomizer works, here's the lowdown:

I'm going to use this cool Randomizer thing to pick a winner from everyone who leaves a comment. You don't have to say anything special - you just have to say something so the Randomizer knows you were here. Don't ask me how it works, but my human says it's super fair and kinda scientific (?).

Details:

1) Randomizer will pick a winner based on the number of comments on this post. Please leave only ONE comment so my human doesn't have to do any counting. Trust me, we don't want her to do any counting.

2) You don't have to say anything special in your comment, but if you're an anonymous commenter - please leave your name or at least some kind of alias so we know what to call you if you get picked.

3) Winner will be picked from all comments received by San Francisco midnight on February 14th and posted February 15th.

Telling me how cute I am in your comments would be nice, but won't make the Randomizer pick you because the Randomizer is 100% totally random.

PS: I will read everyone's comments (like I always do) but won't comment back so I don't throw off the Randomizer. I told you - very scientific.

Normally I don't find Pugs that cute, but you are cuteness personified! Your human takes some wonderful pictures of you.

I think my gang guilted me into posting on this, they want cookies.

Puglet you very cute and I love reading your blog

Puglet my puppy Sarge would love a cookbook. We enjoy reading your blog everyday. Always a nice little break from school. Makes it a lot easier being away from Sarge while I am at school and he is back at home with the family. Thanks :D

Puglet our mom said that she'll bake us and you included any treat in the cookbook. And food totally = LOVE.

Hi Puglet,
You tell that human of yours to take care of herself and feel better. Maybe a trip out to see the cows will help her gimpiness. Fresh air, sunshine and baby-cow pies - sounds like the prescripion to heal all that ails ya.

Although guilting her into making the Love Day more dog-friendly = great idea.

Food definiately is love. You've sure got that right.

Here's hoping the randomizer picks me.

Licks,
Sabrina

Ohhh we can't wait to find out what kind of cookies your human is going to make you!

Hey Pug - hope your eye is feeling better. I think your vet needs to get her eyes checked - you are not fat, doesn't she realize it's muscle! So... would you like to be my Valentine, if you are into older ladies that is!

Scoutie said...

Hi Grand Master P. Believe it or not, your human probably cooks more than mine, but maybe the cookbook would be an inspiration to use the kitchen for more than just a room to tell me to get out of.

Wish me luck!

Bellatrix- I'm a pug! said...

Really someone thinks love doesn't equal food? If I could I would make out with food, maybe let it go to second base. You look so happy in your pic, like totally excited food is coming your way! I hope it's real food and not a carrot.

pudgypughug said...

Ohhhh cookies! I want my human to make cookies for me for Love Day. I'm going to my doggy day care on Monday while the humans are at work. They want me to find something called a Valentine while I am there? I am not sure who or what a Valentine is but I think it has to do with Pug love... Human's and their holidays I tell ya... Rumor is that the lovely Scoutie, who comments on your blog, also attends my day care... Maybe she will be there? I'll keep you posted Dude!

PUGLET- Wow this is so cool. I totally agree that FOOD equals LOVE (along with a little chin scritchin'). And GUESS WHAT? I heard that food made with LOVE has like ZERO CALORIES!!!!

Hi, Puglet...the Spike Monster here!

My human has been calling me a chunky-monkey, but I sure do love my treats! If this helps with the randomizer, my human is also a gimpy brain. Fortunately, the new man in the house can cook so he could use the book!

Love you work!

Puglet,
I need that cookbook! Our kitchen is a dead zone. Except for the coffee maker thing-y, nothing happens in there. The oven is lonely and negelected. It wants to bake something.
Happy Love Day to you & your pack. And a special big beagle love lick to your human!

Dude, My humans dropped me of at the "sitter" last Saturday and went on a cruise. I am having fun here but don't tell them that because I am totally going to guilt them into cookies when they get back. Ya know, its fun here and all but I saw on a commercial, where they are, they have these endless buffets and 24 hour ice cream. What the heck? How am I not cruising too???? Its even too cold here for rabbit poo. So I called my aunt to use her thumbs and send this message. (I hope they don't find out) Even if I don't win from your cool randomizer thing, I am still Totally going to guilt them when they get back.

Buffy said...

Well I need cookies on love day because I dug deep deep deep into Mumma's craft bag and tore open specially sealed bags to get to
some chocolate she had been teaching people to make a craft project with. I didn't get sick, just really silly and Mumma told me I might die but the doggy doctor gave me a valium shot and Mumma took the day off work to stay home all day with me to make sure I was ok. She was so worried but I was ok and now we don't keep dark chocolate in the house because Mumma knows how sneaky I can be but I would love some home baked cookies!

We hope that you get a little love(we really mean food but don't tell anybody) this coming Love day. It's only right. Well we love you so we decided since we're on a hunger strike we're going to pretend to eat our treats and hoard them up for the next time we see you...our human says we're enablers and that's not healthy for any of us but that sounds like something that only applies to humans and not pugs. Happy Love(Food) Day!
Luv, Zoey & Phoebe

I sent an email earlier, it was approved, it posted, but now it's not here. Romeo will be very disappointed if he thinks I didn't post for the cookie book.

citydog said...

Hi, Puglet.

I used to agree that feeding totally means loving until a friend recycled a Puggle who was *30lbs* overweight! He had to lose more than half his bodyweight because he could hardly breathe or move and hurt all the time from arthritis and he wasn't even three years old yet!

So I think food = love to a point (a point I am currently *very* far away from, so come on, Randomizer, pick me!).

Tell your human we hope she feels less gimpy.

Your Pug pal in Vermont,
Iggy

Hi Puglet! I just so happened to be born on this "Love Day" so it's very pug-friendly at my house. I get tons of treats & toys & hugs & I even heard my momma ordering me a cake! I wish every dog was as lucky to have their own holiday!

P.S. It's very nice of you to do a giveaway- thanks! :)

Hi Puglet!

Food is Love! That's why Beulah and Barney and Marble are going to share a can of tuna for Love Day, then go out for an evening snowshoe (well, probably not Marble owing to cats not loving the snow, but dogs do!) because fun times=love too!

Greg said...

Hello Puglet, and thanks for the regular words of pug wisdom. Our family pug, Pollie, is unfortunately not so wise, although she excels (understatement) at sleeping, demanding to be on my lap for hours at a time, eating, begging for treats, making very odd sounds when we are trying to sleep, emitting odors that sometimes cause my bride and I to hurriedly exit the room in search of air, and climbing on the steering wheel when we go for rides.

Oh I would love to win this so I can bake more treats for my girls; Chewie and Penny!

Peggy2957 said...

Hi Puglet,

My human says the last thing I need to have is a book loaded with dog treat recipes. She thinks I'm chubby enough but since she never wins anything she figures the Randomizer will pass right over her. She will enter to keep me happy and she'll be happy since she won't have to make me treats. I'll continue to eat all the snow I want and once in a while she'll give me a carrot slice to snack on.

OMP! I'd love to have more homemade treats! Hopefully I'll get picked!

I agree, Puglet - food *is* love. Unless you're in my house and you're on a stupid diet.

Ugh. I'm thinking that if Randomizer picks me it will give my Human an excuse to give me some (homemade, organic) snacks! Wish me luck!

Happy Valentine's Day to the sweetest Pug I've ever "met".
