Don't worry - I promise this isn't going to turn into the Daily Flat Puglet. But whenever someone from here on the blog hosts a visit, I totally have to tell you all about it. Especially when the visit makes my human laugh so hard she sounds like a pug on a hot summer day.

So here's what the flat me did during his visit with Stubby (hi Stubby!) in Mundelein, IL:

Flat Puglet arrived today and I was so excited to greet him at the mailbox!

He arrived the morning after a snowstorm. Mom wanted Flat Puglet and I to make snow angels but we really understand how to make them so she made one instead. Flat Puglet then decided he wanted to be part of the snow angel and plopped himself down!

Mom took Flat Puglet to work with her. She works at the College of Lake County Writing Center. Flat Puglet welcomed students into the Center with his super cute expression!

Mom took Flat Puglet to the grocery store (I am not allowed in the store so I stayed home). Flat Puglet was instantly drawn to the asparagus display at the front of the store. Mom thought maybe he was hungry after his long journey when he hopped out of the cart and into the asparagus!

Flat Puglet mysteriously disappeared while Mom was checking out the broccoli. After searching the produce section she found him.... HA! to find out where Flattie me was hiding, please go to his post on!

(Sorry to do this, but for the FPP to work, we need to get some community going over there too -- thanks for the extra clicking!!!)

Thanks Stubby & your human for an extrasuperspecial visit!!!

Go Flat Puglet Go!

My human said the flattie as a snow angel made the battle with the evil glue gun *totally* worth it.

BTW - if you ever need to glue stuff that really doesn't want to be glued - Glue Dots are your friend!!!!

Hi Puglet! I was so surprised this morning to see that your blog post was about FP's visit with me! How cool!

The snow angel making mad Mom crack up too. Dad thought it was so silly but FP loved it. I'm so glad it made your human crack up because it was a lot of fun.

Stubby xoxo

Pee-s: So glad to hear that FP 2.0 will be made with 50% less plastic!

THE PUGLET said...

Yup, Mundelein now has a little flag thingy on FP's travel map.

I'm really glad your mom had fun with FP. Also VERY glad he didn't freak you out like he did with Spencer B & Dutch.

My human tried to think of some way to make FP out of recycled materials but the best she could do was use every part of a file folder. So his back is from one part, and the pouch he came in is made from another part. So even though it's plastic, we tried not to waste it.

I'd be crushed if FPP made the garbage patch bigger.

Wow, Stubby! You were such a great host to Flat Puglet! It looks like he had so much fun! I've never been to the snow, but we did get some flakes here in sunny Cali a few months ago- it NEVER snows in these parts. My mom and human sister go to Tahoe to ski and play, but I'm not invited. Lucky you!
So much fun to read everyone's six word life stories yesterday!

Stubby and the flattie make snow look fun, don't they?!?

JennyThePug said...

Puglet, What vicarious adventures you are having! I'd love for you, flat or otherwise, to come to Oregon for a visit! ❤

THE PUGLET said...

Uhm, hi Jenny!

You'd really love a visit from the Flat me? Wow. Cool!

I totally wanted to send you one, but my human said sending a life-sized version of myself would definitely land me in Creepy Stalkerville territory.

Crabbie Chris said...

awww Puglet Jenny is totally into you! She wants you to come to Oregon, and I don't think she just wants the flat one. That's like huge.
I love your FP, and can't wait to get out and take some photos with it. I love seeing the adventures your FP is going on. My mommy and daddy are planing a trip soon and will take it with them. This is super exciting.

THE PUGLET said...

Hey Bella-T~

I know! Jenny! Huge!

Uh, I don't mean Jenny is huge. (Jenny, if you're reading this, you're perfect). I mean the Jenny-wanting-me-to-visit, flat-or-not is huge!



Crabbie Chris said...

It's just not huge Puglet it's epic! I know she would love a full size FP, I mean who wouldn't?? You should like take a picture that's just perfect, (like any wouldn't be) then blow it up to Puglet size. Jenny would just swoon. I mean I know you'd swoon over a life-size flat Jenny. That's almost as yummy as a bully stick.

Wow- what a cool time FP must have had with Stubby. I haven't been to the snow yet! Maybe I'll get to make a snow angel one of these days! Grandmahuman took our FP to her work at the newspaper today. I've been there a few times too...there's lots to see!

Sequoia & Petunia & Emma said...

We got your flat puglet this Thursday and he is already having some fun adventures!!!! Everyone loves him!

pugsmom said...

Our flat puglet came this week and we have already gone on a couple of excursions with him. We know we need to send him on his way, but our mom's daughter, who lives with us, is expecting a baby any minute and Flat Puglet really wants to be here for the big day. Mom would love to take his/your picture with the new baby.
By the way, we really applaud your human for using recycled material to make the flatpuglets, but don't worry about Flat Puglet going into the landfills anytime soon. Anyone who has one will never let him go to a landfill no matter what he's made of. Our mom says her flatpuglet is so much company when she goes somewhere we can't go with her.

Wow flat puglet! looks at you goes! Go Go GO!


Winston Wilbur said...

Um is it too late to get on the flatpuglet address list?

THE PUGLET said...

Y'know, I'm getting kinda jealous of the Flat me. He's having WAY more fun than I am.

Maybe I can talk my human into giving ms some extra cookies. Y'know, as a consolation.

THE PUGLET said...

Don't worry Winston- it's totally not too late. Anyone who wants a visit from FP will get one!!

THE PUGLET said...

Phoebe and Kizzy,

I can't wait to see what my Flat self gets up to! Still can't believe he is with you in OREGON right now. Oregon is the Jenny state!

But I'm eve more excited that FP will get to meet a brand new baby. What better way to show the world how dogs aren't just pets, but members of the family. Even flat dogs!

Oh my God! Look at the low price of that asparagus!

THE PUGLET said...

Ha ha - my human thought the same thing about the cheapie asparagus :)
