I'm beginning to wonder if humans and their weird holiday stuff will ever make any sense. Because every time I think I understand what it's all about, something undoes my understanding. Last year it was the whole tree/santa thing. This year it's a thing called an advent calendar.

I guess when my human was little she got reeeeally excited about the advent thing. Because every day between December 1 and December 25 you got to open a stupid little paper door or something on the calendar and, for some reason, my human was really into that.

No idea. Like I said, makes no sense. I mean, at least Thanksgiving has pie.

Anyway. To celebrate Christmas, my human came up with the genius idea to turn the Daily Puglet into some sort of internet advent calendar. Minus the little paper doors. The plan was to make me and Dutch dress up in our humiliating holiday outfits every day until Christmas - but then she forgot to take our pictures for December 1st, was in a coma from a puffy eye on the 2nd, and I was too busy showing of my tongue curl to explain why I was wearing deer ears on the 3rd.

Now there are only 20 days left. And the weird internet-advent thing didn't quite go as planned. But my human thinks it's pretty funny to dress me and Dutch up like holiday creatures, so every day between now and Christmas we'll be dressed up anyway. Like, in deer ears. And a santa hat.

Yeah. Totally merry.

Our human waits for her advent calendar every year from her friend in London. Says something about the chocolate being better. How can something be better if WE can't have any??

My human bought one of those ear things yesterday. She got one for my cat brother too. I also saw a bunch of treats and toys in our basket, but she said something about stocking and christmas. I really hope she doesn't put a pair of panty hose on me! I see the trouble she goes through to put them on!

Anyway, you look pretty cool with the ears I guess I'll let her put them on me.

You look soooooooooo handsome (for a dog). Gunnie and I can't wait to see you everyday between now and Christmas!

What happened to the Daily Frolic? We all look forward to reading it everyday and viewing the awesome photos.

P.S. - Can the Daily Frolic feature kitties?

Oh no Pug...not antlers! I mean at least Dutch just has a hat on, but horns? Ugh, what will our humans do next? Then again, what won't we do for a treat right? Mom put this lame ass collar on me, it's all foo foo and janglee, it just sucked! I had to wear it in public at a Christmas tree lot...I plot my revenge as we speak.
Mom gets dad an advent calendar every year full of chocolate. So then where's ours? I mean everyday I'm game for a new treat...

Our human has an advent "house" has windows and doors for the 24 days...big ones. At our, hmm insistence, these doors now contain doggie treats.

Great picture Puglet, but you look pretty wet!

If it makes you feel any better, mom ordered us santa hats too. Yay :/
And if I have to hear the barking jingle bells song one more time I will leave for good.
Just call me Scrooge.

Wait - an advent calendar can have food in it?? My human didn't say anything about food. She just said you got to open a little door every day. There was no mention about food.

Hmmmm. Where do you get one of these food dispensing calendars?? If I'm going to wear deer ears for the next 19 days, I want my own advent!

I went swimming! In my deer ears :)

THE PUGLET said...

I *wish* the Daily Frolic was dead!! It was just in a coma so my gimpy human could get caught up on a few things. She is soooooooo slow sometimes.

But, it's back today (sigh). Some adoption event got rained out yesterday, so me and Dutch got to be today's dogs. At least our feet did.

I don't know what I'd do without you guys. I mean, if it weren't for Daily Puglet - who would look at me every day?

I think it'd be cool for the Daily Frolic to have kitties, but we never see kitties at the beach or on the streets. My human says that's a good thing!

DMBY said...

Puglet, just think of this as another kind of supermodeling - HOLIDAY STYLE. :)

THE PUGLET said...

Holiday style. I like that! I heard my human say something about me looking like a reindeer in headlights??

Pug and Dutch...your photo on frolic is absolutely the greatest. Wow!

Its a good thing our advent calendar/house is big, and came unfilled...we had some input on the fill material. Its a big wooden thing, not something you buy every year...but boy, someone has to come out with a doggie version of the chocoate advent calendars!

You are so brave to go swimming with your ears on!

Sorry Pug - our human loves seeing you & Dutch dressed up, so you are not getting any support from her. She said keep the funny & great pictures coming!!

Hi Puglet,
Nice Antlers! Dutch looks snazzy with the Santa Hat too.

Part of the 12 days of Christmas has something to do with 8 Maids a Milking. If your human comes home with something that resembles udders, RUN LIKE THE WIND!!!
Our mom came home with sweaters and I got the pea green one. Yea like I'm happy... NOT!

Thanks for the Daily Frolic update, we are glad it is back (sorry Pug, we know you hate it)!

Maybe your human can hire for "free" an east coast picture taker that can take pictures of kitty's and send them to you? We unfortunately are inside kitty's, but on a day like today when it is 30 degrees with gale force winds outside we are glad we are inside!
