SHEEP + SLEEP


Ok. So maybe making a sex tape wasn't the best idea I've ever had. But I'm glad it made some of the humans out there laugh.

The good news is my human's brain needs to warm up a little before fighting with HAL4 about pugs so she said I could use the thumbs for a few minutes. The bad news is we never do anything fun anymore so I don't have anything new or exciting to say.

Frank's here, so I guess that's new. The Dallas people are excited about their pictures, so I guess that's exciting.

I guess there will be a public gallery for everyone to get excited about after the Other 999 all get their pictures, but you're not public. You're sheep. My sheep. At least that's what one of the angry people said so I'm going with it. She also said my human is going to rot in you-know-where, but I'm thinking she's probably wrong on that one.

Anyway. Sheep or no sheep, I don't think anyone in Dallas will mind you looking at their cuteness. The gallery has a secret password to keep the non-sheep/public out, and I don't want to get in trouble for giving out secrets so you have to guess what it is.

Clues:

Dutch looks like a ( _____ ) but is totally afraid of them.
( _____ ) usually don't love Dutch's favorite color. Or Justin Bieber.

Smush the ( ____ ) together and you get the secret password. It's all one word, has only little letters and ends in 's'.

You can find the gallery HERE.

You'll know you're in the right place if it looks like this:



In case you're one of the angry still waiting for your stuff, it's still coming. HAL4 isn't so fast anymore and my human can't sleep any less than she already does. Or doesn't. Or whatever.

Awhile ago some food doctor told my human she should wear one those bugg thingys on her arm to keep an eye on 'Kim'. It doesn't do squat to control Kim, but it's really good at watching her sleep. Here's what the last week look like for my human:



In case you're one of the awesome and worried my human isn't sleeping enough, you're right. But she's trying. If you count falling asleep on the couch after dinner, last night = a whole 8 hours:



Might not sound like much to a pug, but she says 8 hrs is a lot of sleep for a human. If it wasn't for Frank's snoring, it would have been even more.

Ok. Brain is warmed up now. Time to give back the thumbs.

Later, sheep!

I love sheep!!! They are cute and cuddly... You should tell you human that counting sheep sometimes help people fall asleep, so she can count all the supportive, happy sheep you have each night!

Sammy and Neko said...

Why some folks get so angry and say something nasty like that? I simply don't get those people. Oh well... I want to say nasty back at them, but since I don't need to bring my level down to theirs, I stop here....
Those Dallas pugs are freaking adorable.. Can't hardly wait to see the book. And our pictures (soon). Thank you for all of your work, Amanda, Pug, Dutch and Frank (to keep company). Sleep more, girl!!!!!

Puglet,
I don't know what a sheep is but my human said they're fuzzy and cute. We really liked looking at the Dallas pugs, especially Daisy! I think I'm in love with her! My human had to pull my feet off her HAL1 and wipe the screen cause I wanted to give Daisy kisses. You think I could get Daisy's phone#?
Thanks,
C. Penfold McGee

Gorgeous pics! So happy we got to see them =)
If being a sheep means we're yours, we're fine with that!
Love always, Bruno & Diesel ♥♥♥

Sue McGee said...

Amanda, You needed to add one more thing to your "good" recap. Because you are an example to people with traumatic brain injuries that, despite the incredible challenges they face, sometimes anything IS possible. No, this project didn't go exactly as you planned, mostly because lack of executive function prohibits you from the kind of projection necessary to do that kind of planning. But you did it, and are doing it! It IS possible! I hope you won't feel afraid anymore to share your "disability." With this project you've proved that a disability doesn't have to keep you from doing the impossible. Thank you so much for the blessing that you are as an example of what is possible. Okay, signing off now because, in Puglet speak, I'm leaking and can't see the keyboard.
Thank you,
Sue McGee

Are you kidding me? People are still complaining. Do these awful people not realize you are ONE Person with ONE computer. Just ignore them. By the way, Lucky and I are happy to be your sheep any day of the week.

Despite what the complainers say, you are doing a fantastic job!

Get some rest - your friends, Gabi and Lucky

Pugman, my Mom says a human HAS to do whatever the human's Mom tells her to do. If thumbs doesn't get more sleep you may have to bring in the big guns - Grandma Bradshaw. Maybe she can get thumbs to sleep more. Just an idea...

I love you Pug...... & Dutch (even if you aren't interested in 70 pounds of smokin' hot Labrador....)

Kisses, Kisses,

PS Hey Miley! Nice to hear you on the blog again!

Oh Puglet thanks for the secret password to the Dallas gallery! Too much cuteness!!! I am soooo bummed I couldn't be a supermodel for you and be part of the 1000 pugs! Much love you, your human, and Dutch are awesome but you're the awesomest!

Cutest. Sheep. Ever.
Just spent quality time with my pink puppy friends (human kids) ooohing and awwwwwing over all the pictures so far!

Amanda, I'm not very good at math but that's not enough sleep, dear! Except that nap on the couch, if you can do those it's almost as good as in the bed sleep. I hear that's what my human used to do when she had a pink puppy growing inside her. She'd come home from work and sit down 'for a minute', Mr Human would find her snoozing and have to roust her up, feed her and put her to bed.

you've got a happy little sheep over here! i loved looking through all the pictures and can't wait to see mine! There are so many photos so far that made us laugh out loud! oh those pugs!

Amanda, the pictures are wonderful.

Puglet, I'm heading to SF on Monday, and if I run into you again (don't know if you remember me from when we met the last time I was there in July) I hope you let me take you to HS for an ice cream or something.

Southern Fried Pugs said...

Baaa! Count us in. If we are sheep, then we have a great shepherd.

The Dallas pix are unbearably cute. We feel like we know the pugs because their personalities are so clear in the photos. Exquisite work.

PS, our mom takes MidNite to help her sleep. It's natural and safe and non-addictive. It helps our mom fall asleep and sleep more deeply. And she is rotten at getting good sleep. She says it helps turn off her thoughts.

Katie said...

The Dallas pictures are so wonderful! They all just really capture the soul of each pug. You have done such a great job, and I am so excited to see my pictures!

TriHardChris said...

Ok..so this may sound so stupid, but...

I have this visual of each of our 1000 puggies standing in line, tails curled and wagging waiting to enter pug gallery. Puglet standing at the portal with a clipboard..."number?", "276: bouncer", yep...on the list...proceed...NEXT!

Silly, I know..but it makes me giggle.

I knit and have angora goats and I want sheep, so I am happy being called a sheep.

Be sure to tell your human that she also needs to take more steps in her day..... I am sure she was really looking forward to all of this unsolicited commentary on her health. But we love her, as do you, pug, which is why we are here and reading and looking and following and supporting.

hugs and bacon

Anonymous said...

Puglet, our mom says "whatever it takes" and if sex tape could bring in some extra bacon moula AND get her to lie down....we kid we kid

We'll be your sheeps any day...although we are pugs. And mom says, "how the hy moly is sheep an insult?!" We're clearly missing something.

However our human also says she'd be quite happy on an island with just pugs, no humans so she has no tolerance for mean.

Love you Casa de pug + Frank!

Those photos are AMAZING. I'm glad all 1000 pugs aren't there yet or I'd be up all night. And probably my brain would explode.

TriHardChris, that was great! Thanks for sharing the silliness, it gave me a good laugh!

A non-US Daily Puglet reader said...

Dear Puglet,

THE PHOTOS ARE INCREDIBLE!!!
Tell your human she can sleep all she wants for a while now. She's definitely earned it.

Can't wait for the book!

Pearl and Tessa said...

Ok,tried to talk sheep, auto correct thingy won't let us. Our human likes to knit parts of sheep, keeps saying she wants to make you a sweater (we refuse to,but we have seen your awesomeness in one).

1000 sheep next?

Dear Pug:
If the Dallas Pug Pictures are any indication how the Minneapolis Pictures will turn out, then my curly little tail is wagging really hard! You obviously worked really hard to make sure that thumbs found great spots to take pictures with Nikkon.

I'm jealous of supermodel #135's wicked awesome outfit. I love giraffes, they look like my human.

Puglet, while I'm not one of the 999, I am proud to be one of your sheep! We love ya, the pictures are sure amazing, and you just ignore the hateful two leggers. Remember, they are just mad in general and nothing makes them happy. Your momma is doing a fantastic job and I look forward to hearing from you and Dutch - one of our highlights! Pooch Smooch

They're fantastic Amanda (& Pug).

We're so looking forward to the book.

Next time, come to the UK and book me a spot! ;)

Okay, first of all, thanks for the password help.

Second, HOLY MASSIVE UNDERTAKING. The Pug Gallery is to-die for. Every single pug is an awesome supermodel and their humans should be so proud and so honored to be a part of this whole 1000K genius project (I am not a 1000k participant or owner), and to have their insanely adorable pugs be featured.

I can see how some of them hold a special place for Amanda, the ones with what might be termed 'disabilities' or other. These are the ones with so much love to give in their being-ness.

To all the 1000K Pug participants, I am honored for you, and I hope you feel the same way.

The photos look great!! Tell your human that she has a lot of talent with photographing animals. So happy that the 1000 pugs is turning out so well. The efforts were worth it! Very inspiring. :)

Janelle said...

I just sent a message through 1000 pugs asking for the password for Portland. Everytime I get curious to check how the project is going you have always just posted about it. We are going in for an oncology consultation for Zeke tomorrow. Seeing his pictures and seeing this done has become very sentimental for me. Keep up the good work!

Sue McGee said...

Mary, check again this morning, a few of the Miami pics are up. I'm guessing this project is kicking HAL4's butt too! I looked at the Dallas gallery last night (Pen wanted to see Daisy again!) and there are a bunch more pics up than the first time I looked. We need to all send good juju to HAL4!

I'm not Amanda's friend, I'm not even one of the 100...

I love reading about Pug and Dutch - their adventures always make me smile. I stopped going here after a bit because of all the negative comments and haters.

When I first read about the 100 pugs project I thought this was a lot to take on for just ONE person...

I'm glad that there are people out there that support and believe..It's a happy place again..

Nevermind! I just went to look at the Atlanta Gallery and the clue isn't state fruit anymore. Amanda just switched sports on us to baseball. Atlanta is the "land of the free and the home of the Braves!"

CHINAPUG 1 said...

OMG!! I've been reading this blog off and on for about a year. Faithfully for the past 3 months. I have already decided I must have a copy of 1000 Pugs. But maybe I need some sleep. Can't figure out the password and Friday the talk was about Dallas pugs. Today I see Atlanta and Miami. What have I missed??? I would really like to keep up in viewing these pictures but right now I'm lost. Can anyone give me a little help? Thanks, Katie, Elizabeth, Cooper and Maggie's slightly slow mom.

Mercy's Mom said...

HiChinapug,

We have to get to this adress:
http://pugtour.com/mia/viewingdownloading/

The passsword for Atlanta is braves and Miami is dolphins. I hope I can say that on the blog!? If you still can't get to see the gallery, let me know; I'll direct you another way. I started following Puglet's blog last spring. Try to read from the very beginning. You'll get a lot of history and let's face it, Pug's enteries are funny and entertaining.

Mercy's Mom said...

Chinapug,

This might be easier - go to
1. http://pugtour.com
2. Choose your Location (click on city)
3. You'll be redirected to another page. Go to YOUR IMAGES and click
4. On left side of page there is a heading in red that says THE VIEWING GALLERY. The text contains the word HERE in lt. blue. Click on that.

There is probably a much easier way to get to the gallery... I am pretty much computer challenged.... Anyway, when you get there bookmark or favorite the page.

When the book comes out consider buying more than one book if you can swing it. Maybe donate to local assisted living center, library, etc. Amanda didn't make any profit off the project, as you know; let's all try to help her make some profit from book sales - she certainly deserves it!

Anonymous, it's taking much longer for HAL4 to upload the pictures. Not all of the Atlanta pics are up yet either. Send good juju to HAL4!

Is there a place to go to pre order the book? I know we're just pug fractions but we feel like we've been living the project along with y'all.
