EVICTING MUCUS


I missed you at the end of last week, but you didn't miss a thing around here. Because even though my human tried really hard not to get sick, it totally didn't work. And you know the Mucinex stuff that's supposed to evict mucus? Didn't work either.


So my human went to the people-vet. She has that bronchitisaurus thing (again). And I guess since her body sucks at evicting mucus, they gave her some pills that are supposed to kick the brocho-whatevers butt. She still honks like a goose and sounds like a frog, but my human says she needs her thumbs back so I guess the pills are doing something.

I seriously think I need a new human.

PS: the Giant Black Thing is still sitting in the hallway. Still hasn't moved or made a peep. Still very creepy. I asked Google if it might be a treadmill but it sounds like treadmills don't just sit there and get dusty. Will keep you posted.

Oh man Pug...your human needs some TLC from you and Dutch! And, treadmills do just sit there and do nothing...they do that at a lot of houses...uh, one does it at my house all the time! Hope Amanda gets better soon!

Juju is coming your human's way from the Eat Coast! Pug, you need to learn how to make chicken noodle soup...or get thumb implants!!

The best thing for evicting mucus...is rest!
I know.. BO-RING, but it's true! So, it's time to cuddle up and enjoy some snuggle time with sicky.

ps- That's the job of at-home treadmills- dust collectors!

You don't need a new human. She needs you more than you will ever know. Just be glad "bronco" isn't contagious to pugs!

Puglet,
Sitting getting dusty is exactly what most treadmills do when they live in people's homes. A lot of them also hold clothing. Only a few lucky one's with dedicated owners get to move.

Hi Puglet! Hope your human feels better soon. It a bummer being sick like that. Can't wait to finally find out what the "MONOLITH" is! Hopefully there's some component of it that is edible.

-Love,
Sid.

Paula from DE said...

I agree with the other comment, If clothes start hanging off the big thing then it's definitely a treadmill!! Beware new closet!

Eddie the Pug said...

Chicken soup, hot water with cider vinegar/honey, Vicks Vaporub, and wearing an old soft flannel nightgown help my Momma rest when she needs to feel better!

We have a treadmill that sits around gathering dust! I thought that was what they were supposed to do.

Hope you evict that mucus soon... I'll be sending you some good juju!

Hugo the Portland Pug said...

Oh Pug, your momma has the worst luck! I hope she feels better super soon. Make sure to give her extra cuddles!

Jeez, Pug. Your mom can't catch a break! We hope she gets better very soon and gets lots of much needed rest.

A hot Irish Whiskey is the best cure ever. Seriously. Lemon for Vitamin c, honey for a scratchy throat, cloves to boost the immune system, and sure isn't alcohol an antiseptic to help kill those nasty germs?

Buddy said...

My treadmill is totally dusty and just sits there. Im sorry your human is sick, but im happy you posted. I was worried about you with all the rain and wind i heard about on the weather channel. Happy everything is AOK for the most part.

Do you think that treadmill is for you puglet after all your traveling...just saying....

Sorry Gnat said...

Well Pug, having you or any Pug (don't take that personally) around when you're sick is a major healing factor. Pugs comfort more than flannel blankets, anything.
Tell your human 'get better" - hugs and thoughts of chicken soup being transferred.

Linda said...

Puglet,
My mom gets the bronco thing too. Instead of snuggling me, she snuggles a bowl of hot water with green stuff in it! (she says the green stuff is mint and thyme) I don't know why green stuff is better than pug snuggles, but it seems to make her less grumpy pretty quickly.

Sorry your human is sick, doesn't sound like a whole lotta fun for you or her :( Hope she gets better soon. Jersey JuJu on its way......

If it is a treadmill, it certainly can get covered in dust if it was anything like the one I had!!! HAHA

Darling Puglet,

We are sending your human major Washington juju. Our human gets chest dinosaurs in the wintertime because it is so wet here :((( It's up to you and Dutch to keep her warm and safe! And NO treadmills. Just rest and chicken soup and what everybody else said.

Love,
Daisy

and maybe some goldenseal

Hope your human is feeling better. Just heard, the second annual Bacon Fest is coming to Sacramento January 20-27, gotta get better for that! Includes a Kevin Bacon tribute.

Sending lota JuJu

Spencer Woo said...

P-let, tell your person that there's this stuff called Yin Chao, and another called Ganmaoling, both easy peasy to find since you are in SF (My people are from B-town across the water). They are both really helpful for cold and flu symptoms. They are Chinese herbs. I must say I am not a doc but my hupersons have taken them lots and it really helps. Won't take away bronchitic germ but if she gets a cold... My sister Sof has doggy bronchitis, or at least the xray vet said so. Sometimes ya gotta use the western meds tho.

Spencer Woo said...

Shouldn't be saying this either but when mucinex was made otc they half the dose you would get with an rx. they do that with most drugs that finally come otc.

Paula from DE said...

Pug I hope your mom is feeling better and your absence doesn't mean you've been walking on a treadmill all week!

Linda Martin said...

Amanda, we are starting to worry. Puglet, if you can get the thumbs, just give us a heads up that everything is OK. Hope you are feeling better. Puglet, you and Dutch take care of the thumbs!

Pulling out from Daily Puglet withdrawal. The dizziness has subsided and I've pretty much stopped the violent shaking. Now I just miss you very, very much. Please post soon.

I am so sorry that there seems to be something wrong. It's a tough time of year for problems! I am sending good thoughts to all of you and hope the sun shines for you soon!

Hope everything is ok...worry when we don't hear from you...especially when your human has been sick.

Dear Puglet,

I guess she is dead. Because I do not see a caring person, no matter how busy, leaving us hanging, when it only takes a few freakin' seconds to post I'm okay, and will be back soon.

pugtux said...

I don't feel that that last comment was necessary or appropriate. I don't care if people who enjoy this blog are worried or not. You do NOT say something like THIS to someone else. This is a poor reflection of the world we live in.

Pearl and Tessa said...

Can't believe someone would post the anonymous posting earlier today, especially in light of the horrible tragedy yesterday. We are hoping that there is some minor tech glitch and that is why we have not heard from Puglet. Hope everyone is ok.

Anonymous said...

Dear Pug, We know we will hear from you when you're ready. In the meantime know that I'm sending superbaconyjuju to Miss Amanda, you and studmuffin Dutchy. Stay safe, stay healthy. Lots of slobbery kisses from Mercy in Chicago

Puglet, I check for you every day and today I started to cry. Please let everything be ok. Maybe your human is taking a well deserved break. xxx

Dear Amanda,
We are very worried about the family at Casa de Puglet. We are offering up prayers that all is well and that you are growing strong and healthier by the day. Looking forward to hearing from you again, but take all the time you need to get and be well. We love you all (Puglet, Dutch and Amanda).
From Phoebe's humom in Oregon
PS From all the pug pack, Phoebe, Kizzy, Dutchy, and Olita. Even Max the Maxwell terrier and Pippi the chi send love and get wells.

To: Anonymous from Dec. 15 (and you know who you are) - please leave this blog immediately and do not return.

We need lots of prayers and magic ju-ju to be sent to resolve whatever is going on a Casa de Puglet now.

We do not need or want anyone with low level sarcasm here.

We are so worried that Thumbs must be really sick. Isn't there anyone out there who knows what is going on????

Roxi, Riley & Lea

Happy Whelp Day to Chang from Chicago !!!

If she is truly sick, then I am truly sorry. But more often than not, she has made us worry in the past, and it was because she was busy, not because she was sick. Yes my comment was a little harsh, and I apologize. I am just blown away, that all of are sitting here worrying, she has to know we are, because we have in the passed, and it just doesn't seem to matter to her. It is very sad. Having my own blog, I know it really does only take a minute to post a line.

@ Anonymous-
It is none of our business WHY Amanda hasn't checked in! Who do you think you are? It is insane to believe that she owes US an explanation about where she's been or what she's been doing. This blog is supposed to be FUN for everyone... including AMANDA, and people like you are taking that away from her (and me, too).
This has always been a place of joy, and smiles, and virtual hugs. I don't know what has happened here, but it's a shame.

I know I should say nothing, since it is probably time to move on. But, amen Lafayette Lola. Amanda gives us a gift of joy and insight, and our role is simply to be grateful and say thank you.
