We had some major technical difficulties at my house today. With my human's eyes. She woke up this morning and they were all puffy. Like, so puffy they wouldn't open. At all. So she took some anti-hista-something to make the swelling go away... and then fell into a coma.

Not a real coma. Just a really long, death-like nap. I guess that's what happens when she takes the anti-hista things, and I guess being in a coma is
better than not being able to open your eyes? No idea. But when she finally woke up, it was almost time for dinner. Her eyes were puffy but half-open and me & Dutch were starving to death. And we were completely out of dogfood.

So, we went to PetSmart. And my human put me on the scale like she always does. Y'know, to decide if I'm allowed to have treats. She feels bad about how upset the whole Frolic thing makes me and said something about giving me a "more active role" in the business.
Because of all the poodle incidents, I'm not allowed near Nikon when my human is shooting other dogs - so I suggested she put me in charge of approving all treats used by Frolic. I'd make a supergreat treat tester and pointed out that people keep saying how skinny I am.

My human thought that sounded like a good idea... until I got on the scale.

The news was not good. Not only have I gained an entire pound since the last scale visit, but I also missed the magic 25lb mark by .1! Even after I exhaled all the air from my body, the scale still said 25.1. Ugh.

Anyone know a fast way to lose .1 pounds? It's all that stands between me and a bunch of new treats :(

Hey Puglet - a nice healthy #2 out in the yard should do the trick!! BOL!!

No pug should be denied their treats :)

Oh Pug! You must gets lots of exercise by playing with Dutch. You could eat yummy carrots, they look healthy so they can't have THAT many calories. You must get lots of exercise so you can be the official Frolic cookie tester. Maybe you can make a series of pug dieting videos to help all of us pugs be as slender as possible to make room for all the cookies we must eat..

Ummmm, I still think you're too thin. I know!!!!! You haven't gained weight, it has something to do with the atmospheric pressure! Yup, that's it. That pressure is pushing you down the scale. Truth be known, you've prolly lost weight.

Hope this works on your human, it didn't on mine.

Jump up and down a bunch and then take a big wizz out in the yard! Mom does it every time she steps on the scale and says curse words, so there might be something to it!

Good luck, dude!


Salinger The Pug said...

Mom told me I had to clarify...

She doesn't take a big wizz in the yard....she does it in the bathroom.

Just in case there were questions.

Well, momma always makes a pee & poo....that can be worth a pound almost!

I love your blog and posts! They make me smile and laugh every time, even after a long day at work. The photos are fabulous, too. Thank you for sharing. :-)

We have a puglet and a mutt we love very much...

THE PUGLET said...

Ok. Pee & poop first, then scale. Hmmm. I think I did those things because we went to the park *before* I got on the scale.

Stupid .1

And I wasn't even wearing my harness (shhh - don't tell my human that).

Poor puggy!!!!

Salinger The Pug said...

Aw HAAAAIL...the harness weighs at LEAST 3 pounds all by itself (right???)!

We're sure if you get weighed all nekkid (after a wizz and a deuce) you'll be WAY underweight and mom will feel all bad and just leave the treat box on the floor for you.

Good luck!

Hi Puglet,
What a predicament (whoo that was a big word) to have to lose stupid .1. I did everything, I wizzed (in the yard), poo'd (in the yard) and I was still 25 freakin lbs. Then a light bulb went off in mom's pea brain, she bought me doggie food for chubby dogs and fed me pumpkin & grean beans. Treats became a once a day became pure *hell* for me and my brothers who are naturally skinny to begin with. Specially Eli, we call him bag of bones. But it worked, I am now a svelt 19 lbs and treats are now more frequent, even if they are the healthy almost tasteless kind. Mom did buy us the Omegas...those babies are to die for! Keep tryin Puglet that .1 should fall off, if not hang your toes off the scale!

Shhhhhhhut the front door Salinger!

I *wasn't* wearing my harness this time. Please don't turn my .1 into a 3.1! I may never get a treat again!

THE PUGLET said...

'Hang your toes off the scale'

Ellie, you are a GENIUS!

I did the pumpkin/beans starvation diet once, when I was 30lbs after staying at the House of Meat. Don't EVER want to do that again. Glad you're getting some Omegas now though :)

Paws on the Run said...

Why don't you try not eating poop and see what that does for your diet! :)

Daisy said...

I think the scale might need to be reset! Maybe the last dog who got weighed left something on the scale that made it have a .1 already when you got on it!

Anyway, a .1 will be gone in no time, just keep being a perfect pug! Maybe you never got in your usual exercise cause mommy was in a coma and never got you outside enough.

Oh my god, you look so cute and innocent in that first picture, like you're trying your cutest to charm your way to your human's heart. And the second picture, you look so tragic! lol

I've noticed you've gained a lot of followers Puglet! Awesome. I've enjoyed watching it grow since *I* started following you a while back!

It's all muscle... that's what my mom always says. Muscle weighs more than fat.

Salinger The Pug said...

Crap...sorry Pug! It was early and mom was all sleep foggy.

I'm sure the scale was broken...yeah....that's it! Damn PetSmart and their busted scale! You should insist she call the manager and give him a big what for and maybe you'll even get some FREE treats for this horrible customer service.

Hmph...getting weighed on a busted scale...INDEED!

THE PUGLET said...

Holy, Dogs on the Run - do you think the poop is making me fat???? Is poop fattening??

THE PUGLET said...

Oh yeah, Daisy, you're totally right. I didn't get ANY exercise before the scale because my human was in a coma and when she woke up, it was raining.

I'm demanding a re-weigh.
