Ever since The Epiphany, it is nothing but pug this and pug that. It has always been Puglet, Puglet, Puglet at our house, but at least when Pug was anti-1000 I was not alone.
Now, I am alone.
I am not, and never will be a pug. I am not, and never will, be 1 of 1000. And that makes me feel like nothing, a zero. Like... Jan Brady.
I saw this poor Jan on the television once and didn't understand why she hated Marsha so much. Now I understand: she didn't hate Marcia, she just felt left out. Like a big empty zero.
I love Pug(let) and think 1000 Pugs is a marvelous thing. But I'm feeling sad and Jan-ny because I can't be part of it all. I will never be a pug. Neither will dogs like Ollie the Canadian beagle, the Jersey Shore Puggles, or Gunnie and Gabby and EMP 3, who are cats.
And what about the pugs who live too far away to be 1 of 1000? Like Misiober's pugs in Poland, or Carlos Santana in Berlin. How can they be part?
I asked my human and now she's a little sad too. Her heart is much bigger than Puglets and she wants everyone to be included... but she can't turn cats and beagles into pugs and something called a budget won't let the tour go to Poland. Now I feel bad for not being a pug AND for making my human upset.
Does anyone have any ideas???

I can't find where my human hides the special Day calendar, so let us all eat cookies to celebrate just in case. If it is your day - VERY BIG HAPPY TO YOU!
