I'LL GIVE YOU BACON...

Any idea how you get a tired, kinda-grumpy human with a cold out of bed? She keeps saying stuff like '5 more minutes' and 'I'll give you bacon if you just let me sleep'. 

I tried the 5 minutes thing like an hour ago and she's still just lying there. I tried staring at her and sneezing on her -- nothing. I was kinda worried she might be in a coma or something so I pawed at her face to make sure she was still breathing. Got yelled at for that, so at least she's alive. But two seconds later she was sleeping again.

I'm totally OK with letting my human stay in bed if that's what she wants to do.... but how can she give me bacon if she's asleep???

I say you keep tabs on how many times she promises to give you bacon. That way, when she's up and about, she'll HAVE to give you a pug-load of bacon! A bacon FEAST!! Mmmmm....

We hope your human is feeling human again soon!!

Aw Pug, it's just not right when the humans are sick but stick with her, I think you have a winner. By the way, you made quite the impression down in Texas. Payton and her Mom Christy haven't stopped talking about you, Nikon, and Amanda!

better idea on pawing the face puglet, I get yelled at by my mom for doing that so I have found that lots of kisses to mom's nose works much better as does laying on her pillow next to her head to snuggle and then I snore in her ear instead. Gets her up every time I do it. Barking right in her ear works as well.

Good luck on getting your bacon and my brother, mom and I hope your mom is feeling better soon.

Love Puggsie

Daddy is like that and he doesn't even have a cold! I usually just get under the covers and snuggle with him. But I'm more of a couch pugalier than a crack pugalier. Hopefully you'll get the bacon when she gets up. I'd make sure to remind her. And if she forgets, tell her you'll just have a treat of pooh instead. ;)

Sending anti-cold juju to your human. Mommy and Baby Sister had one last week. It wasn't any fun. No walks. :(

Noodles said...

I heard that feeding bacon to your adorable Pug and Dutch can actually CURE your cold. Worth a try?

Being sick sucks. Poppy and I just got over a cold and it wasn't fun. Being promised bacon and then not getting is just plain wrong. I would demand a whole pound of the stuff - all to yourself, once she wakes up.
Licks,

Hmmmm this is a tough one Puglet, specially if you don't thumbs to bring her stuff to make her feel better, like soup or tissues.

Our only suggestion and yes we know this will be tough for you, have patience. When she finally wakes up that cute face of yours will be enough to win the bacon.

Patience....inhale, exhale you get the picture.

p.s. just don't piddle in the house

Puglet, we'll let you in on a little surprise - my mom, knowing how much you love bacon, tested a bacon cheddar biscuit on me that she wanted to give you when I get my photo taken as part of the 1000. So if you can make it until next month, you'll have bacon biscuits up the wazoo!

That said, snuggling on her head should work - never fails for me. That or trying to find the perfect spot on her chest (preferably on her boobs). Seriously, every time I do that, she gets up - or puts me on the floor. It's a toss up.

Good luck! And here's hoping your human is feeling well soon! (:

It sounds like your momma needs some serious snuggles to get over her cold & feel better! You and Dutch should just enjoy spooning with your momma! We love days when mom is home sick because we get to be with her :-) Give her some of your Pug Power and she'll feel good in no time :-)

Yes, snuggle in bed with her and let that freight train snore of yours go at full steam. When she is up enough to use her thumbs, she should call a Chinese restaurant and get hot and sour soup. It always cures my human (who also has to look harder for the soup because she's vegetarian).

Meredith LeBlanc said...

When I'm sick in bed Scarlet makes me feel better by sitting on my head. Not that I'm suggesting you do that though Pug.

Feel better Amanda! Good ~~~juju~~~ to you~~~

Good idea to paw the face, Puglet! I mean, its the only way to be sure...

Maggie the Pug in Dallas said...

Hang in there Puglet...she'll be all good before you know it and just think about all that BACON she's gonna owe you! Your human is working way too hard and she does need that rest...uh, that's what I've been told but I seem to never need all that rest!

Payton said...

Hi Pug! Noodle has the best idea...track those bacon promises and remind your human about those promised bacon and spam cookies from Christmas too. But in the meantime, give her lots of snuggles and lovin'. I bet she is sick because of that cold, rainy Texas weather just like I was! We will be praying for Miss Amanda to get well soon.
Love,
Payton

Hey, bud, imagine if you sleep in a crate (mind you, it's a cozy crate with fluffy blankets and in a room away from the crazy cats) and your mom sleeps late? Have you ever seen a poodle rocket? Miss Chelu needs to pee when she gets up, so she rushes like a crazy woman to get outside. Me, I have the manly sized bladder so no problem...but I sure am HUNGRY!

Dutchess the Pug said...

I'm sure your human will make good on her telling you she'll give you bacon. But, little Puglet, I'm she feel's awful. I don't know your human, but from what I've read, she is a hard-working person. Just sit tight, snuggle with her and know that when she feels better things for you will get bettere too!

Sammy and Neko said...

Let her take longer than usual beauty nap. She needs it.
As for bacon..... we will take some please !!

agent99 said...

Pug: take the bacon! Let Mom sleep!

moPSY+MISIOber said...

Noodle is right !!!! and maybe do a paw stamp of the wall every time she promises bacon. So when she will feel ok, it will be easy to count how many bacon you MUST get plus you will have awsome wallpaper for free :) Miss Amanda please please please feel better soon, our mom send lots of hugs your way !!! love PT and GOsia

Oh, sounds like your human could use some homemade Henrietta Chicken soup. Take good care of her, snuggle to keep her warm, and we are sure in the end you will be rewarded with that bacon.

Suki said...

Hi Pug,
When Mom has a cold or tummy troubles, she sleeps a lot too, but that's good snuggle time & it makes her feel better faster. Power of a pug my friend. Hope your human feels better fast & you can get bacon. If I was there I would share another one of Mom's hamburgers with you.

Hugs,
Suki

Puglet, let me put my "lawyer collar" on for a sec. You've got to get your paws on a tape recorder so you have TANGIBLE evidence that you are due some delicious bacon when you human finally wakes up!

-Love,
Sid.

P.S. Have you tried "huffing and puffing"? That's how I usually get my humans to get up and feed me.
