We get a lot of emails here at Casa de Puglet asking me to tell everyone about different products and stuff. I totally love when the mail dude brings me things, but I only say yes to:
1) Things I think are cool.
2) Things I think you will think are cool.
3) Eatables. Never say no to an eatable.
Ages ago we got an email about testing out this stuff called Snout Soother. Sounded maybe-cool, but my snout was totally fine. No way I can test out a snout fixer if my snout isn't broken, right? Right. So I told them if I ever need any soothing, I'll let them know.
Well, last week at PugOween I heard my human talking to some other pug-people about "funky nose crust". My funky nose crust. I guess she started noticing it in pictures a few weeks ago and thinks it's gross. She tried cleaning it off like dirt, but it's not dirt it's FUNK so normal fold-cleaning techniques didn't work.
One of the pug-people said you can get rid of Nose Funk with something called Bag-Balm and a little scraping. I asked Google about it and found out the technical term for Nose Funk is Nasal Hyperkeratosis. Google also said Bag Balm is for freaking cow udders so I reminded my human about the Snout Soother.
We emailed the snout people and I swear like 2 seconds later the mail dude stuffed a sample through our door. My human smeared some on my snout last night. I licked the first smear off. And the second one. Didn't taste bad or anything, but by the third smear I was kinda over it.
My human wasn't completely happy at me for licking off the first two smears, but I reminder her that the soother is 100% natural. She reminded me that poo is too but I'm not allowed to eat that either.
It will take more smearing to fully test the powers of Snout Soother, but I know lots of pugs have Nose Funk so I'll keep you posted. Hopefully my snout will be 100% Funk-free really soon.
* * *SPECIALNESS!
Today isn't special, but yesterday and Saturday were. Happiness and cookies to Lucy (East Lansing, MI) who celebrated Whelp Day on Saturday and even more happiness and cookies for Benny (So Glensfalls, NY), Kahlua (Cinn... Ohio) who were special yesterday.
PS: My human's sister Alison was also special yesterday. She lives in Denver where it's supposed to be 76 today and snowing on Wednesday. I don't think snow is what she wanted for her special day so much happiness to her too!
* * * UPDATE: snout status * * *
Holy SPAM, check out my snout. After Pearl & Tessa said their Funk just pops off after using Pug Butter, my human rubbed my nose a little and BAM! Off it popped.
Well, there wasn't really a BAM! or a pop (that would be scary) but the Funk did come right off. No scraping necessary. My human took today's Before picture this time yesterday, after she rubbed my snout with a wet towel. We put the soother on last night during bad TV... so that means in less than 24 hours, my Funk is almost gone. Pretty cool!
