FAME FOR ME = FOOD FOR YOU

So I was at our local Pet Food Express yesterday stocking up on bully penis when I heard someone say "Is that Puglet?". I didn't know the guy who said it, but he totally knew me. Said he read The Daily Puglet in a newspaper called Bay Woof and recognized me from the article.

Cool.

I haven't felt famous since last year's Green Pug video and the extra attention felt really really good. It felt even better when the lady behind the counter asked if she could have my pawtograph.

Heck yeah! Famous.

Humans go kinda nuts over famous people, so I thought maybe I could use my fame to do something good. Y'know, like score some free snacks for friends. So I asked if I could please have something edible to give away here on the DP. Y'know, give back to everyone who helped make me a star.

(That's you)

The nice Pet Food Express man said yes and picked out some awesome low-fat, breath freshening treats (perfect for pugs). But the ingredient list wasn't very Food Revolutionary so I hunted around for something a little more... real.

It was kinda tough to find something that everyone here can eat (including the kitties), but I think Stella & Chewy's are eatable for everyone. They have about six different kinds of cow in them and are crazy tasty. INSANELY tasty.

I'm not famous enough (yet) to score more than one bag of free snacks, so I'll let The Randomizer pick which lucky someone gets to get them.

Please remember to follow the Random rules:


* one comment each so my human doesn't have to do any counting

* if you're anonymous, say your name in your comment

* comments close TONIGHT at 2am San Francisco time
* come back tomorrow to see who won


I'll totally be reading all your comments, but won't talk back until tomorrow so The Randomizer doesn't get confused.


PS: I totally forgot to check the calendar (thanks Phoebe & Zoey :)

* * *

Thanks to Buddy in Houston, Texas and Marty in Webster, New York TODAY IS DOUBLE SPECIAL. Happy Whelp Day guys!

Dear Puglet,

My name is Puggy and I am a 4.5 months old pug in Switzerland. My human loves your blog, but the annoying thing is that here we don't have all the tasty food you talk about in your daily adventures. Would love it once to be able to try it!

Hi Puglet,

We've been following you for quite a while it seems. We'd love to be considered for the chance to win some treats!

Lots of love from Los Angeles,

Payton said...

Are you kidding, Pug? You are a total celebrity! I mean come on...did you see how natural you looked in your food revolution poster on yesterday's post? I know you could take over San Fran if your human would let you!
Love,
Payton
PS. My mom says that she just bought me a big bag of treats, so if the randomizer thingy picks me, please give the booty to another cool Daily Puglet reader.
PPS. My mom alway wanted to let everyone know that she took over my blog today and made her first PDE post.

Mandy said...

Izzie here,

I'm a 2.5 year old lady Pug in Canada and i really admire your fame. One day i hope to be famous like you because of Agility or the blog my food lady writes about me.

But alas Canada is a vast place and the area we live is not densely populated and most folks don't care about Pugs, even the famous ones.

We read you every day and would love to win the treats with the 6 kinds of cow in them. I really like my treats but mum says to keep me fit for agility i only get them occasionally or when we're training (but i trick her you see and always pester her for training so i can get more yummies!)

Anyways hope the randomizer picks me!

Lindsey said...

Dexter and Milton in Spokane WA read you everyday and we would love to taste some of the tasty things you get to eat!!

Hi Puglet,
Your becoming famous! Pretty soon the pappratzi will be following you around.. we can see it all now, your face & name in lights, your own private jet, female dogs vying for your attention.. Ok, we got a bit carried away. But you did look cute with that bag of treats hanging from your mouth.
Ellie, Emmitt and Eli... your pals from San Antonio

Oh, forgot to tell you, mom fed Eli some sort of cheddar cheese treats in class, he pooped in the house during the night. Serves her right for not making him chicken!

Maggie the Pug in Dallas said...

Hi Puglet!

Your adventure yesterday sounded like fun and even better cuz it involved food! We love getting food and better yet wnen it is free. Thanks for wanting to share with us, you are the best. Even if I don't win I think it's cool!

Foodie Girl said...

Puglet-

I think you're pretty famous. I always talk about you at the dog park to my friends...

Well if that randomizer thing happens to pick me - I promise to share the treats with my cat brother (even though I share EVERYTHING with him but I'm not allowed to play with his toys (too small) or go near his poop box.)

Andrea said...

My pug Pug is pretty excited about the idea of 6 kinds of cow. I hope we win!

Misiober said...

I wish I'd live in SF. I'd love to meet you one day.
Since you are that famous, maybe you could sell your pawtographs (on one of your gorgeous pic.)??? I think that all your fans, here would like to have one. And all the profits could go to the worthy cause :)Please think about it, I'll buy it for sure :)

As you know Puglet, we live in Poland (which is very far from you) so if the randomizer would picks us, please give this crunch to one of our friends here :)hugs and kiss Beautiful!!

The Spike Monster would love to try six different kinds of cow! He has been working very hard with a trainer, and so it would be a nice reward. Here's hoping the little boy wins!

Six different kinds of cow?!?! Sign us up!

Lola said...

Oh Pug- you are so the bomb for scoring one of us some free treats! That's super-sool that you got recognized out in public. I think I get recognized a lot too- I always here people say "aaaaaw! Look at the pug". They're totally talking about me. I don't have a blog, or a video or anything cool like that, but somehow they know me.
We saw your SanFran pug Sun on TV the other day- looked for you, but didn't see you. Our East Bay Pug Sun is this weekend- Mothers' Day.
Six kinds of cow sounds delish!

Puglet, my mom was one of those random humans who saw you and Dutch at Fort Fun one time and kind of freaked out because you are both even cuter in the fur (which she did not think possible from all the adorable photos). Hopefully we will run into each other again and have more pug sumo wrestling time!

Pug Love!

DMBY said...

I would totally buy a Puglet Pawtograph.

Also if the Randomizer picks us, Benny the Cat will be super excited. He would eat those treats even if they were made for dogs - he eats everything!

Gabby and Gunnie, Fab Cats from MD said...

Puglet,

Thank you for picking something that us kittys can eat too.

They don't make "beef" snacks for kitty's, so we would love to try them.

Who said cat's only like fish?

Please pick us, pretty please!

Barbara said...

Six different cows? Holy cow! I'll bet Minnie and Trixie would LOVE those!

Hi Puglet,
I am barking and begging for ALL four furry pets at my house...Grace and George (the rescue cats), Eddie the Pug (me), and Wally (the rescue cockapoo) who would LOVE to win the treats! We only get to eat low calorie rice cakes to keep us slim and healthy.
If we win the goodies, send them to Redwood City, CA :) :) :) :)

Hey Puglet,

Great giveaway! Stella and Chewy is amazing and all natural. My pup Alfred would love to try these treats. Although not too many at once, he's on a diet just like you!

Hi Puglet. My mom is feeling a little bit guilty about not knowing what's in my food... I don't care, as long as it's food :)
My mom's dog when she was in college lived for 17 years on "Atta Boy" dog food. I don't know what that is but Mom says she now feels REALLY GUILTY about that!

Wow! People, and dogs and cats, sure go nuts for free stuff! Gotta admit, though, if treats are involved, I'm guilty too ;)

Puglet, you were born to be a star! I can totally picture you on the cover of the Bay Woof!! Hmm...gotta make that happen somehow...

Puglet I cannot believe you are unaware of your FAME-OSITY! I mean all I totally have to do is say your name and EVERYPUGGY knows who you are.
BTW, I think you are so handsome with your pawtograph pen in your mouth. Makes you look very SMART.

George Brown said...

Hi Puglet,
My parents make sure to get me food that has only ingredients we can pronounce in it. I also asked them if they would bring me to meet you and Dutch, they said they would think about it. My dad is a total pug fanatic so I think he might say yes! Although they don't think I would ride on a plane to get there, I'm a little scared of everything.

Buford T. Justice said...

Man you are TOTALLY FAMOUS!!!!!!!!! Our human reads you everyday thanks to another Pug Family in Sonoma and was SOOOOOOOOOO Excited when we finally got to go on an adventure with you and Miley and Boka and Zoey and Phoebe. The first time she (our human) met Miley and Boka (and their human) she was pratically silly with excitement!!!!!! My silly sisfer runs agility with Boka and her human so that's where they officially met.

Anyway, I'm babbling. Congrats on the Famousness and we hope someday you'll come to an Agility event so Bambi can try to impress you.......silly girl Pug.

Puglet you are so famous already! I have an idea. You should pawtograph your pictures and charge a donation. Give the money to rescue folks. I would love all the cow but I am sure I can not eat them if I won. It seems my waist is bigger then my head according to mom.

Hi Puglet,

Fame is fleeting. May be you should do a food video. Could revitalize the attention around you. How about a video on how to make your own snacks. :) I can help... eat.

I'm all for good food. I tried to go to the local farmers market before, but I'm not allowed.

Annie the pug said...

Puglet,

My human's birthday is tomorrow, but I don't get to eat any cake. If fact, I haven't been getting ANY extra food since I pooped on the couch last week. :( Not even fruit!!

Maybe a bag of Stella and Chewy's would console my aching heart (i.e. stomach).

I have such a crush on you, Puglet. I guess everyone does now. I knew you'd "blow up" some day. I NEED six kinds of cow cause my Mom said the D-word after my last vet check! It's back to 7 kibbles and a bowl of water for me. I will share the cows with my 4 brothers and sisters and 2 foster brothers, so it won't hurt me....jjjjuuust a tttaaste. I already feel weak and the D hasn't officially started yet. Oh, and remember, I LOVE you, Puglet. xoxo
