So, last night we went to the House of Meat and I ate a whole BUNCH of stuff when my human and The Man were out (please don't tell my human this because she might take away some of my food).

I was kinda worried someone might notice my sudden increase in tubeyness... until Dutch outdid my eating by jumping UP on the counter and consuming an ENTIRE frying pan full of melted cow (technical term: grease).

Sometimes it really sucks to be short.

At first I was really kinda mad at Dutch for being tall enough to eat stuff off the counter. I mean, how fair is that?? But a few hours later, melted-cow karma totally kicked in and taught him a lesson. We're talking sick with a capital S - From both ends. Maybe even at the same time.

Mr. Grease-eater was up all night and I heard my human say something about a trip to the V-word. I'm not feeling so great today, but not bad enough to need the V-word.

I guess being short is better than eating melted cow. Sort of.

From someone who has had his fill of melted pig (bacon grease), and felt the pain off both ends; its well worth the pain.

Oh boy, Puglet -- you two sure are asking for it this week and it's not even Friday! First the gimp foot and now eating stuff you shouldn't (again), tsk, tsk!

Just try to have a safe weekend, mmm, k? And give Dutch a pug hug and help him to feel better.

Melted cow...never had the stuff. Sounds pretty awesome though. But then again, I eat cement. Poor Dutch, hopefully, all the melted cow comes out okay. Whichever end.

I think, after all, sometimes we pugs have been really lucky to be that short.
But I can imagine how tasty the smell of the melted cow was....mmmmhhhhhhh.

Oh no Puglet,
I'm sending good thoughts Dutch's way so he heals up fast, at both ends. I'm still jealous though, and would absolutely love to eat a pan of melted cow or pig or just about anything. Every dog deserves to have a House of Meat in their lives but we're just not all that lucky. Sigh...

Noodle said...

Oh NO! Poor Dutch! I hope he's feeling better really soon. Boy, it's a good thing your human isn't a pug--you guys would be giving her a snout FULL of grey chin furs!! BOL!

SpencerBartholomew said...

Oooohhh No!! Poor Dutch...Man, that is NOT fun. One time I got into the chinese food and I was sick from both ends also. I kept the whole house up all night. I hope he feels better soon. Least he doesn't have woodchips or rocks coming out his rear; we'll leave that one up to you Pug :) Love ya man.

Wow Puglet must be a full moon or something. My brothers and I ate my human's snacks yesterday too and not feeling good today.
Can you ask your human what mineral oil she gives you to help you feel better?

Mochi, Macho, Marshmallow

Wilma said...

Oh no! I hope Dutch feels better soon. That greasy stuff can sure wreak havoc on your belly, not to mention the pancreas. I got into something last night too, it really ticked off the people. I found my 2nd mouse in the basement. Now Mom won't let me go and be her laundry assistant anymore:(

Hey Wilma, better you than your Mom finding it!

Guess our "short of stature" design has some benfits! Ymmmmm melted cow sounds delicious. Our Mom says she would hate to see what your vet bills are!

ugh...that's the second time my comments have been erased...ack! here goes again (blogspot I"m talking to you!)
Man tall dogs get all the good yummies sometimes. Poor Dutch, I know he's hating it now, but I'm sure that was worth it. I know what it's like to have sensative tummy. hang in there Dutch

Oh, no! It sounds like you two are on the verge of being banned from the House of Meat. If so, you hang with us at the house-of-pugs-rarely-(never)-get-meat, okay that doesn't sound fun but we do have fun. Or if you need someone to watch you our human is always on that side of the grey bridge. We hope poor Dutch is feeling better really soon & has learned his lesson.
Luv, Zoey & Phoebe

Puglet, you should consider yourself lucky to be short! just think how sick you would be all the time if you could reach the food on the counter... you know you dont have any self control just like the rest of us pugs...
feel better soon Dutch!

We hope Dutch feels better soon. Melted cow sounds rpetty tasty but no worth a trip to the Vet. Good thing you are short Pug!!!

Poor Dutch, I hope he feels better soon but hey Puglet.....I can teach you how to get things off the counters!!!!! I have recently (3 times) managed to knock Bambi's agility training bag off the counter and eat THE ENTIRE CONTENTS!!!!! Which my human says was more than any normal pug stomach should be able to hold volume wise..... The first 2 times there was no problem, I am a Pug after all but the third time I had a VERY upset stomach for a couple of days..... Lots of running to the back door for emergency outdoor visits.... My human says I deserved it especially since there were like 5 or 6 different kinds of treats in there ranging from about 2 cups of Natural Balance meat roll to duck strips, chicken strips, cheese, a whole squeeze tube of peanut butter and some other yummy stuff that I'm not sure what it was. I have been banished to a crate while no one is home since my human can't figure out how in the world I am getting it down. Sh said something about me convincing the cat to knock it off with the promise to share but she's pretty sure once it's off I don't share.

Next time we get together I'll give you a few counter surfing pointers.

Tell Dutch, we feel his pain, man. Now there's a reason to have short legs! Hope everything returns to normal real soon!

Way to go Dutch! We didn't know you had it in you (no pun intended) Hope you feel better : }

THE PUGLET said...

Buford, you're the man. I've never, ever, gotten to eat anything not handed to me or put in my dog bowl!

The counters at my house never have melted anything on them (do carrots even melt??) so I haven't had many chances to develop these skills :(

THE PUGLET said...

Heya Wilma -

What's a pancreas? My human was all freaked out about that too. She almost made Dutch puke up the melted cow so it wouldn't anger his pancreas. I guess it was too late? Or maybe too gross to make him yak? Not sure. None of it has been pretty!

Anonymous said...

Oh man, and we thought you were the one to always get into trouble. Dutch takes the cake, er, grease, in this case. Yuck, with a capital Y

PS Is The Man your human's boyfriend? We're just a couple of wonderin' pugs hehee

Suki said...

Oh no! Not Dutch too having ailments. The Super Harvest Moon must be causing all this havic.

Dutch, next time, just remember Melted Cow in moderation.


Wilma said...

Hey Puglet,
Sluggo is Mr super sensitive, on many levels, one boing his GI tract.(where the food goes to turn into poop) All he had was one slightly greasy pizza crust and it turns into a 630.00 case of pancreatitis. I guess us dogs don't always do so good with the grease. Not trying to scare you, just know how yucky that grease can be.
I sure hope Dutch is feeling better!

So, I was talking with the cat that lives here. He's lived here a lot longer than me and he said there used to be a big dog that lived here too! Jake, the cat, said he had worked out a deal with the big dog. Jake was to scout the high areas for the goodies and work them to the edge (or knock them off) of the counter/table to share with the big dog. Apparently, the big dog wasn't too into sharing after all. Sadly, Jake the cat has since decided that dogs cannot be trusted and he no longer shares any goodies he might find. Bummer. Perhaps you could enlist the help of a cat?
