WAY LESS SUCKY

Warm. Dry.

The sun isn't awake yet, but so far things around here are much less sucky. My human is still stressed. I'm still not getting any turkey or pie. The Atlanta Pugs still don't have their pictures. But all your awesomeness made everything feel a ton better. And things can't be too sucky if you have a warm bed to sleep in. Even if Dutch hogs most of it.


Guess I should probably explain the warm bed thing.

Ok. So this morning there were people sleeping in front of our house. Like on our doorstep. Like I had to step on people to go outside and pee. Yeah. This has never happened before and it kinda freaked me out.

ME: how come people are sleeping on our house?
MY HUMAN: probably because it's been raining really really hard all night.
ME: why didn't they sleep at their own house?
MY HUMAN: I'm thinking they don't have a house to sleep in.

Don't have a house to sleep in? Talk about sucky.

One of the door sleepers was in a bag. The other one just had a blanket. I woke the bagged one up when I stepped on the head-end of the bag by mistake. My human totally would have squawked at me if I stepped on her head, but the door sleeper just said sorry sorry sorry sorry sorry. I wagged and she pet me. My human told her it was ok for her to stay, we just needed to get outside so I could pee (Dutch was too afraid and stayed inside).

Peeing in the rain really sucks so sleeping in -- or even near -- the rain must totally suck. So I asked my human if we could give the door sleepers something to make the rest of their day better. Like a donut. Or bacon. Or socks. She thought this idea was awesome.

Of course we don't have donuts or bacon at our house and my human wasn't sure if anyone would want her socks. So on the way back from peeing, we stopped at 7-11 to get the door sleepers some breakfast eatables. The 7-11 dudes know all my human ever eats is diet coke and asked why on earth we were looking at donuts. She told them about the door sleepers.

Send them down here. I'll make sure they get a good breakfast, the 7-11 dude saidHe promised me 'something good' meant donuts.

The door sleepers were still sleeping when we got home so my human stuck a note to the lady door sleeper's bag:

Go to 7-11, breakfast is waiting for you. 

Happy Thanksgiving :)

PS: Knock if you want some dry socks.

This is what Thanksgiving is all about. It doesn't matter how or where these people came from. Right now they need food and you came through. It puts things in perspective. You are a terrific pug and person.

You guys are the best and that's about the cutest pug bottom I have ever seen!!!!!

Buddy said...

Wow. Human kindness does still exist. Way to go pug and thumbs! Most people would have shooed them away or most likely called the cops, but here you are giving away socks. Totally awesome. :)

That was my comment! My human stole it. That's okay. It's true--you guys DO ROCK!!

Happy T-day, buddy!!

Sabrina PugTails said...

I can't imagine it is an easy life, being a doorsleeper. I tried being a tent sleeper once and that was scary enough.
Your human has the biggest heart! Please give her lots of kisses for me.
Licks,
Sabrina

i am leaky now as well. it's amazing how the universe will put things in perspective when we're feeling down. so glad you and your human have such big hearts. my pug is an ATL pug and i know the pictures are well worth the wait. secretly i enjoy the anticipation. i helped your human with the reflector for a couple of days and i was so sad when that weekend was over. happy thanksgiving and hope things keep getting less sucky - we all love you, dutch, and your human.

Sheesh Puglet, my mom just leaked all over me reading this. She squeezed me extra tight and kissed me too. Those people must be so thankful that Thumbs let them stay in the dry of your steps and when they wake up and find out that Thumbs and the 7-11 dude have eatables for them they will be even happier. We're still leaking for them though, because they don't have the same stuff we do to be thankful for. No house, no eatables, maybe no family to share thanks with. It really puts stuff we think is sucky into perspective, doesn't it?

Maggie the Pug in Dallas said...

Oh Man Pug! That is awesome how great ya'll are with the door sleepers! It's so nice to be nice! Love to you guys!

Ursula Yeah said...

Thats awsome i think we should all learn from you guys and try to help more each other :)

Puglet,

Every time I read your blog, I am touched. I think you, Dutch and your Amanda are one of God's gifts to all of us. We hope that each of you have a Happy Thanksgiving and have many Blessings in the days to come. Like everyone else I can hardly type for leaking. Pugs & Kisses to you all!!

Those Jersey Shore Puggles said...

We're telling you, Puglet, just when you think that things can't get any more suckier, you see some humans more down and out than your own and then you stop and you bark to yourself, "hey, we got each other and that's all that matters."

Happy Thanksgiving Pug, Dutch and Miss Amanda,

Love you .....
Roxi, Riley & Lea

Fritter from the Lo-Flo said...

You all are amazing, you're generosity is endless. That's what makes you so awesome. I love to bask in the warmth of your hearts! I am thankful for you and your blog and for reminding me how good my life is, even on the days that are a little sucky.

Heather said...

Puglet, I read your blog religiously, but I hardly ever comment, and I apologize for that because you are so sweet and you deserve to know it! Your human continues to amaze me. Even when she is feeling sucky, she goes out of her way to make other poeple feel good and that is something special. You should make sure you give her extra snuggles in your warm bed. Happy Thanksgiving!

All I can say is you and your human are awesome!

Leaking here too. You, thumbs, and Dutch are the bestest of the best and we're so thankful to get to read about your awesomeness on the daily...if only we lived closer.

You should write a book Puglet...your writing makes our tails wiggle and our human's smile hurt good hurt.

We love you and are thankful for all of you!

Baxter, Cole, and a leaky human!

Yay for you three! Thanks so much for sharing what you have with someone who has so much less. I'm sure they were so filled with thankfulness when they woke up to your loving note and act of kindness.
Thanks, too, for sharing your story. It's a wonderful reminder of how we can help others. It doesn't have to be anything huge, but just a small gesture done with genuine love. I'm sure you made their day.

p.s. My human's brother was a door sleeper, and she always hoped that strangers would be kind to him until he came home. He came home last year. Your door sleepers mean a lot to someone.

Sammy and Neko said...

Super awesome. We help each other, human to human or human to dogs or whatever... we are all family. Love you, Dutch and your human, Amanda.

Thanksgiving is wonderful because of you guys.

Leaking here now. Wow, some extra special good juju coming your way & 7-11 dude's way for sure. We really don't appreciate what we have until we see with our own eyes on what others don't have. You guys are the best!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Love always, Bruno & Diesel (& mom) ♥♥♥

Southern Fried Pugs said...

Others have said, but we'll say it too. Suckiness is all about perspective. Of all the suckiness you guys have been through, you were able to see the sunshine on the other side. Then you were able to make someone else's day less sucky. You get serious karma points. And you totally deserve bacon and spa days and pink fleeces.

Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks for being thankful, not for stuff or sales of more stuff, but for the beauty in the everyday world.

Rosa said...

We need more human (way more ) like yours Pug. You guys rock. Have a great Thanksgiving.

I believe in angels, guardian and otherwise. And I also believe that angels come to each of us in many ways, many forms. They may help us when we least expect it. Each of us can also be an angel....and we may not even realize it. Puglet, Dutch, Amanda....you are all angels in more ways than you know. Happy Thanksgiving from Max and Grace, two of your biggest pug fans....you make our humom smile every day!

You're mom's cool helping out the sleeping bag lady. My mom was wondering if the Dallas pugs ever got their pictures cause she hasn't seen anything and saw you comment on the Atlanta pugs which was after Dallas. She isn't trying to rush but wanted to make sure she didn't miss anything. Hope you have a happy thanksgiving.
