Alright, I suck at keeping secrets. And I'm sorry if this freaks anyone out, but this is the conversation I had with Lily (that's Lily up there in today's picture)...

ME: So, do you know how our people know each other?

LILY: Yes! They met a few weeks ago in a saddle.
ME: Uhhhhhh. You mean, in Seattle?
LILY: Duh, that's what I said! Saddle! Where they make the coffee.

The coffee? That kinda confused me, so we went back and forth for awhile before I was 100% sure were were talking about 1) our humans and 2) Seattle. Lily seemed to know a lot about the Seattle trip (sort of) so I tried to get some info out of her.

ME: Do you know what they were doing in Seattle?
LILY: Yesssss.
ME: Well... what were they doing?
LILY: Shooting dogs!
ME: Our humans. Shooting dogs.
LILY: Yup!

This made no sense at all. Even less sense than the saddle. And the coffee. And something about a cow's belly?? No idea. But Lily said she saw pictures. She knew all about Fiona and Frank + Bean, said there were other pugs too. A lot of other pugs. And our humans shot all of them. And then came home. To us. Like nothing ever happened.

I remember what it was like to be a semi-puppy and know how complicated and confusing the world can be. But Lily said she is "300% positive" our humans met in Seattle when they were shooting dogs.

I've watched enough episodes of that Law & Order show to know that the people you least expect to do the shooting are always guilty of murder. What if my human is keeping the whole Seattle thing a secret from me and Dutch because she's some kind of.... doggie serial killer???

Hey Puglet, do you think that the shooting was done with a camera? We can't imagine your human doing the other type of shooting.

Totally the camera shooting thing that Yoda and Brutus thought. She's just soooo good at it. I would def be more concerned about the cookies that may have been given away during this 'shooting'.
YOUR cookies, Pug!

THE PUGLET said...

Wait - now I feel like a confused semi-puppy. You can shoot dogs with a camera?? She points that thing at me ALL THE TIME. I had no idea a camera could be used as a weapon.

Maybe that's why Dutch is so afraid of it!?

Ellie, Bogie and Gertie said...

Puglet - Maybe your human is just helping you with your great American Pug Novel? Humans are suckers for pug photo books!

Maybe a "hunk" pug calendar is coming out...she is shooting the doggie's of the month? We would assume you would be one of the highlights. Hummm, has she said anything about a contract?

Is your Momma getting a new job in mean Seattle (seniors get confused too)?
Maybe you are moving, maybe you are gonna have a whole new bunch of places to go hiking and swimming. Do you think? You can bring your green and blue and rescue missions to even more people. If it is so, I can't believe it took me so long to figure it out. I don't know. Things are gettin' mighty curious.
But if she is a serial dog killer, you and Dutch are gonna have to do the right thing. For the sake of all dogkind.

SpencerBartholomew said...

Oh Puglet... no, no, no, I'm sure she was using a camera!! Like a photoSHOOT! Your human would never do the other shoot! You poor thing... that must have terrified you and Dutch! Rest assured, dear Puglet... it is only a camera and you are so used to that type of shoot. I hope we get to see all those shootings soon... keep the investigation going!

Wilma has good point...We are concerned for your safety. DO NOT wear any orange vests. You should probably call up Pugnacious and see if they have any camoflage wear. Just in case...lets see her shoot you in camo!

Hang in there Puglet, I'm sure there is a good explanation for all the suspense. Maybe your person doesn't want you and Dutch to be accessories or obstructions to justice; just in case her and Lily's person have to make a run for it. Lol! I'm sorry Puglet; this is no laughing matter - huh?

THE PUGLET said...

Uhm, I'm pretty sure we'd never, ever move to Seattle because of the weather. My human really liked it there, but gets SAD if there's no sun and Seattle has no sun a lot.

A photoSHOOT? Really? That does sound like something my human would do. But why the heck would she go all the way to an entirely different state just to take pictures when she can just stay home and shoot me?

So, if you all think it's safe - should I just come out and ask/demand for the full scoop on Seattle? Should I wear a camo outfit like Pearl and Tessa said, just in case?

I hope it was a photoshoot, and your human is not on the run! Too many mysteries!

3pugs2luv said...

Ok,Ok. Let's everybody calm down & think about this rationally. Phoebe's here running in circles, she's so confused. But think about it, your human uses her camera every day to take pictures of you, Dutch & lots of other things. Humans say the word "shoot" because we haven't come up with a better word to decribe taking pictures. IF & that's a big if, your human was a doggie serial killer do you think she would be taking you to all these fun places with all kinds of witnesses around. Plus you just got back from camping out in the middle of nowhere. That's usually the place where serial killers like to strike, especially since there was no tent. But just in case you're still no sure about your humans intentions, we wouldn't go anywhere with her if a shovel is going too. Don't worry Pug, your human wouldn't spend all her time trying to help dogs if she wanted to hurt them.
Luv, Zoey & Phoebe

Ollie said...

Yes Puglet, it's time to demand an answer! All this sneaking around taking pictures of who knows how many strange pugs and other dogs. Remember Schotz? Who is this Schotz?
I'm not so worried about this whole serial killer thing because you've got bigger problems. She's giving away your Pirate's Booty to these dogs! Before you know it, all your snacks will be gone (are those Seattle cookies still around?).
She sure has a lot of explaining to do.

THE PUGLET said...

OH YEAH - I forgot allllll about the whole Schotz thing! My human's brain-gimp must be rubbing off on me. But you're right, it does sound like an interrogation is in order.

Now that she's probably not a serial killer after all, I'll have to start asking some questions.

THE PUGLET said...

Uh, Z+P,

Serial Killers like to strike in the woods? PLEASE don't mention that to Dutch. I had a hard enough time convincing him there aren't any dog-eating bears there.

What if she's only a serial killer outside of the pack? Like, me and Dutch are safe but who knows about the rest of the free world.

Miley said...

I told my mom what you think about your mom, I told her that I didn't want to go anywhere with her anymore. She laughed so hard her eyes were leaking. She said that we watch to much tv. She would not tell me what the surprise was. But she said that I should not be afraid of your mom. I'm thinking I will wait for more evidence before I go anywhere near your mom. As of right now my paw is hurt so I can't go on a cow hike aa planed. If you need to get out of there quick let me know I will come and get you and take you somewhere they don't shoot dogs


Crabbie Chris said...

I am so happy that you wouldn't even think about moving...we don't see each other much, but when we do, it makes me happy. I would not want to live far from you and Brother Dutch. Maybe your mom took pictures of pugs for like an even their having...oh or a movie...101 Pugs! I would soooo be in that movie. You mom takes awesome pictures, mom loved the last one she took of me and the Yedi. Be patient Pug, all good things come to those who wait...see you soon!

agent99 said...

Puglet, your Mom is an amazing shooter - with a camera that is. We are hoping she got some kind of JOB in Saddle. That means she would get some money (useful for buying foodables!!)for shooting; all peaceful like, OK.
Your mom makes such great pictures, it would be sad if she did not share them!!!
Just in case, there is a;lways space for you here with Gen & Lefty.....

That "shovel" remark from 3pugs2luv was so funny! Everybody's worried about your human now Puglet LOL What a great post!

I have a secret to confess. I met your human way before I met you and Dutch at the park. She was taking pictures at a photoSHOOT of me and zoe. Remember the green beans.... ask her about the story sometime.
Your friend,
PeeeS, sorry I missed pug sunday last week. hope to run into you at the park soon, so we can play zoomies again.

THE PUGLET said...

I totally promise to call 911 if I see a shovel lying around the house!

THE PUGLET said...

Hey Tobee!

I asked my human about the green bean thing and she played all blonde & gimpy like she had no idea what I was talking about. Think I'm going to have a major interrogation - uh, I mean, conversation with her this weekend. Way too much evidence to ignore.

Do you ever go to Frenchie Friday? I'd love to visit your meet up too :)
