I was all excited to tell you about the crazy naked people... and then the whole poop-in-my-chewnola thing came up... and then came the mountain climbing... so I never got a chance to tell you about the cows!

Or more like the lack of cows.

OK, so last weekend we went to hike with the cows. Y'know, like we pretty much do every weekend? Well. Even though we were there like we always are, the cows were not. No cows. Zero. Anywhere.

The cows had vanished. And they'd taken their pies with them. We found a few crispy, sun-baked cowpies, but they were totally stale and pretty tasteless. Of course we ate them anyway, but still. It wasn't the same.

I'd gotten kinda close to the T-1 cow family, with their goofy matching monogrammed hides and generous servings of fresh pie. I liked playing chase-me with momma T-1. My human liked to oogle over the cute baby T-1s. Dutch is totally afraid of cows so he's just glad they're gone.

When I asked my human where, exactly, my cow friends went she just sighed and said 'greener pastures'. The pastures where we hike are green, so this makes no sense to me. But cow friends, wherever you are, you (and your pies) are will be missed.

Oh, that makes me so sad Puglet. I hope your mom doesn't mean greener pastures like I think she does. Maybe someday you'll get some cow friends again to enjoy (and their cow pies).

Hi Puglet -- Molly here.

I'm so totally bummed for you that the pie factory shut down; there is nothing better than a fresh baked cow pie. I would send you fresh, warm Pennsylvania pies but they'd be crunchy and stale by the time they got to San Fran.

Oh Puglet... I hope the cows come back... it must be kinda quiet out there without them. I bet Dutch was okay with them being gone!

Sam said...

Is that a tear in your eye Puglet? Maybe from missing momma T-1. Hope you get your friends back.

Ollie said...

This requires some investigation. How far could they have gone? One of those official park humans might know or you could follow the cow pie trail. Somewhere out there is a fresh batch of deliciousness waiting for you & Dutch. This could be your next adventure: Mission Moo-Find Lost Cow Friends.

It might be a tear in my eye because I am *that* sad about my cow friends being gone. Or I could have just gotten poked in the eye with one of those evil fox-tail plants. I cannot wait for them to go away!

THE PUGLET said...

Hmmmm. Does anyone know about this 'greener pastures' stuff? Like, maybe the T-1 family are on vacation and will be back soon?

If not, Ollie is right. A good friend would totally go and look for them. Y'know, in case they were in some kind of trouble. Next time we go, I'll have to start an investigation!

Me and Dutch could be detectors. Like on the Law & Order TV show. I bet Law & Order could find the missing cows.

Oh no...we're sorry that you're missing your cow friends and their yummy pies Puglet! that hamburger I smell???

(sorry...couldn't resist!)

Buck up buddy!!!

omgsh. that looks like a commercial. you have to lay down some audio of the cows talking about puglet. submit it to the happy cow people. great job! it could be really funny!

Oh please be careful with those evil fox tails!Poor Yoda needed surgery to get one out - it was terrible. You're going to need your eyes if you're going to ivestigate the case of the missing cows. That sounds like a book series, you know like the Sherlock Holms or even cooler Jason Bourne...Puglet & the Animal Mysteries. That would be fun. Hopefully you'll be reunited with your cow friends really soon.

Puglet... where I go walking sometimes the cows are there and sometimes there are no cows... I don't know where they go but they do come back. Maybe your cows will be back the next time you go with their cowpies... I hope so! And I know what you mean about those foxtails... dangerous for us pugs!

pugsmom said...

I'm so sorry your cow friends are gone. I really think you should look into it, but steel yourself in case the news is bad. You know, in case they found a greener pasture and decided to move for good or something.

Puglet, Law and Order is being canceled. I think your human should write something like The Puglet Chronicles and submit it to take the L and O slot. :-) Ever heard of The Cat Who? Surely a pug can top a cat. LOL

What's happening with your buddy flatpuglet? Any new updates? People are asking. Just sayin.......

Hugs to you and Dutch and Amanda too,
Phoebe and Kizzy in Oregon

Puglet- did you hear about the Berkeley Humane Society had a fire last night. They need help. They don't have a place for the animals & can't process adoptions. If anyone can help them out please do. We hate to think about what those poor animals went through.

I'm so sorry your cows are missing. Those triplets sure look like they like you too. Either that or they were looking to swipe your carrot. I hope they come back. I don't like the sound of this "greener pasture" thing. Very suspect.

Anonymous said...

Yes, those cows seemed very interested in your carrot. They had probably never seen anything so orange! I'm glad you have such healthy eating habits Puglet!

Seeing those beautiful cows makes me never want to eat any meat whatsoever

THE PUGLET said...

Oh, I hope my cow friends are like Spencer B's. If his go away and come back, maybe I *will* see the T-1 family again. That would make me soooo happy.

THE PUGLET said...

Zoey & Phoebe ~

You are so right about those stupid fox plants. I didn't know a plant could be evil - but they are SO evil!

My human says walking through a field of foxtails is like running with scissors. I'm not exactly sure what that's supposed to mean, but she picked me up and carried me during our last cow hike when the foxtails took over the trail.

So embarrassing. But I guess embarrassing is better than a foxtail to the eye.

If you've only ever met a cow in steak or hamburger form, you don't know what you're missing. They are very sweet, super funny, and they make the weirdest noises. Weirder than any noise any pug has ever made.

My human tried to give the baby T-1s a carrot, but they just ran away. I really like the cows and all, but no way I was handing mine over.
