Hi everyone. Puglet hurt his eye running through the grass during our cow hike this weekend. Don't worry, it's nothing serious (the vet said it's just irritated and gave him some drops). He's just not feeling his, quote, "cutest" and asked me to fill in today.

So, uhm. Well. I'm not the greatest public speaker so maybe I should just talk about Puglet? Because of his squinty eye, Puglet didn't make his great agility debut this weekend. He was extremely disappointed by this - especially when he found out some blogger-pugs were at the event.

Honestly? I think it's for the best. I know he's told you all about practicing to be agile, but I've seen these 'practices' and they are nothing like the real thing. Puglet mostly just goofs around on the obstacles and poses for pictures. Maybe now he'll g
et serious and do some real training in time for his next event... but I doubt it.

Puglet was also really looking forward to today's comeback of Flat Puglet. Our kitchen has been full of Flatties for the past few weeks, and even though I know they're here to do good in the world, they really creep me out. My human has promised they will be all be gone today... until the next invasion.

I'll let Puglet reintroduce the adventures of his flat self when he comes back tomorrow.

Lastly, the great bed-hog debate is over. I now have my own special plug-in blanket and am happy to stay on my warm & toasty side of the bed. I accepted Puglet's semi-sincere apology and extended an equally semi-sincere invitation to share my blanket, should he ever get cold. He never gets cold, so I doubt this will ever happen.

PS. For the record, I'm not the only one who thinks pugs are shaped like loaves of bread.

We missed you this weekend, Puglet (and Dutch). There were 5 pugs showing on Saturday, and 3 on Sunday. We all had a lot of fun. We even took a picture with the "group", Flat Puglet, and the honorary spotted pug, Miley.

Hiya Brother Dutch, I totally love when you take over the blogs (but don't tell Puglet) because you always have something great to say. I also love your pictures, such a handsome boy! I'm sorry Puglet's eye got hurt and that he had to miss agility. You should have filled in for him. I bet you'd do a mean weave.
I'm glad you got a heated blanket, maybe you'd want to cuddle under it? hehe

That's so nice of you Dutch. Please tell Puglet we hope he feels better. Maybe Puglet should enter a doggy modeling contest, as he seems to like to pose so much! Too bad there aren't any contests like that.

Yes, Dutch, you are so very handsome. Puglet gets all the credit sometimes, but you are a noble and intelligent guy.

hahahaha - we have a name we throw around here "puggeh loaf" - inspired by the LOL catz "kitteh loaf" - it's so so so true.

THE PUGLET said...

Whoa. For a second I thought Arnie was Puglet in the group picture - they look like twins! I could not imagine a world with TWO Puglets.

THE PUGLET said...

Miss Bellatrix, you are always so sweet to me. You are invited to share my blanket anytime (and that isn't a semi-sincere invitation either).

PS: my ears do not do that kind of craziness by themselves; it takes a strong wind.

Or two of us will have to dye our hair or something.
The photo shoot was something else. The only one that behaved was the spotted one. The rest of us were trying so hard to visit, we were wiggling all over. Until Sweet Pea figured out there was a CAMERA, then she was in Super-Model model.
We sure missed you there. LOTS of treats at a trial - you would have liked that, for sure.

The Pug loaf is hysterical! I'm not wide enough for that, though - Mommy says thankfully. I'm sorry to hear about your eye. When I was playing outside I had a stick poke a hole in my left eye. I had to have emergency surgery to put a plug in. This happened when I was only a year old. And half of my sight is now missing in that eye. And when I was two, I was playing and grass scratched my other eye. Luckily I didn't need surgery and was on drops for what seemed like forever. I have slight vision impairment from that too. I'm only three, so my Mommy is super worried about me cause she doesn't want me to be blind before I'm an adult. She even bought be doggles to try to protect my eyes when I'm in certain environments. I hate them and refuse to wear them for more than a few minutes. Maybe your Mom could try some doggles on you and see if you like them? I hope your eye heals up quickly without any lasting effects!

My family and I are having a debate about whether that Pug Loaf of bread is for real or not. I say that totally is a real dog and they say it's edited to look like one. Can someone clear this up for us please.

While he eats too much, that is so a real dog !!
