Today's going to be kinda random. Not Randomizer-random, so don't get too excited. More like all over the place random.
In case you're not a big facebook fan (like my human the social-media wimp), you have to see this cool little tag thing we posted on the 1000 Pugs page. I've been wearing it the past few days to test it out and my human says if it survives the rain tomorrow we'll definitely go with them.
I made my human promise to keep the other 999 pugs off my blog. But I guess if 1000 Pugs has something cool going on, I'm ok with it being here. And since you're my peeps (thumbs or not) I'm totally going to let you in on all the top secret stuff before anyone else knows.
1000 Pugs will be announcing some sort of contest thing tomorrow. It will involve food and pugs and cameras and there will be a prize. I also heard my human say something about a 'Dutch version'. No idea, that's all I know for now. Stay tuned.
There's been HUGE debate here at Casa de Puglet about this last one, but I won so here goes...
Some of you might be wondering why we've never done much with the local pug rescue. I mean, I want to help pugs and my human wants to help pugs - makes sense right? Right.
Except for one thing. Our local pug rescue (who isn't called Pugsavers) does a lot to help pugs but has rejected 100% of all the people we've sent to them. We get a lot of emails asking for the 411 on where to get an awesome pug. Since I'm awesome and also recycled, we always tell people to try rescue first. So it really sucks when the rescue makes it impossible for people to adopt a pug. And we're talking good people. Pug people!
I mean, our local rescue even rejected us. Yep. Before I came a long, my human applied to foster for them and was denied. Something about the wrong kind of stairs? No idea. Maybe the pug gods made them do it so she'd foster me instead, but it's still kinda weird.
They've rejected people for having a pool, the wrong kind of windows, the wrong kind of kids, cats, dogs, jobs. All sorts of stuff. A friend of mine just got rejected because his family has a German Shepard and big dogs eat pugs. And my friend is a pug!!
I'd be cool with all the rejection if there weren't pugs in shelters and on a waiting list to get rescued. But there are.
Anyway. The only reason I'm telling everyone this is because a little pug rescue birdie told us some changes are happening at the rescue and we think maybe things could get better if they got some feedback from people. Like all at once and sent to the same person.
Sometimes a lot of little voices are louder than one big one. So...
If you've tried to adopt from the pug rescue here in the Bay Area (I'm not naming names, you know who) and were rejected, just got postcard and/or never heard back from anyone - please let us know your story like ASAP. If you don't want to comment in front of the whole internet, that's cool. Just email me: dailypuglet-at-gmail.com
We really want just want to help the rescue be better for pugs in need and the people who want to love them.
