So. Just when I thought my human would never believe in the Food = Love thing, something completely awesome happened. And that something was cupcakes.

Yesterday was my human's special-day, so The Man got her a little pink box of tiny little cakes to celebrate getting old (because food = love!). Lucky for me, my human doesn't like chocolate so all the little cakes were totally eatable. Even luckier for me, The Man knew my human would have fun watching me eat a cupcake, so he got a few extras. And just when I thought I couldn't possibly get any luckier, I got luckier.

Three words: Bacon. Maple. Cupcake.


There was no way my human was going to eat anything with bacon in it, even if it was a cupcake. And Dutch can't reach the table, so this bacon-studded piece of love was all mine. It was gone in half a second, but I LOVED every half second of it.

For the record, I was totally right. Food = love. Especially food with bacon in it.

PS: I know I've been talking about food A LOT lately, but my human promises we'll start having adventures again soon.

Hi, Puglet
I read your blog on a daily basis and when and if my human's laptop is unattened. This does not happen very often! Now there is my chance!

I am writing to you from Berlin/Germany just to let you know that the pug community here is large and merry.

My name is Carlos Santana and I am nearly 2 years old. I am also a gifted writer just like you, but I do my column in German. For recreational purposes I write in English sometimes but nobody really knows about it.

Well, my topics are besides food (what else is new?) politics, and in general daily life in my very interesting Berlin district.

But I have never had a cupcake yet! My favorites are bio sausages but I do not see them too often - yes,"she" is a vegetarian, which incidentially leads to the fact that there is too much green food around me. She makes me go to the Turkish market twice a week where we get all this totally unnecessary stuff. My opinion does not count a lot, as one can see.

I have lots of pug friends all over Germany as we are members in a pug forum. We take holidays together and have regular huge pug meetings.

Well- time over, she wants her laptop back.

Pug greetings from Berlin,

Carlos Santana

Wow Puglet! A bacon cupcake is pretty special. I bet the Man KNEW you would get to eat it! He's got your back. Tell your human Happy Birthday!

OH. MY. DOG!! YOU are the PUG!! Bacon. Cake. I think you've gone beyond LOVE!!
I hope your human had a wonderful Gotcha Day!! Pug hugs from The Noodle!!!

Ollie said...

I love bacon and maple (I'm Canadian!). But I've never had that combo in a cupcake. Then again, I've never had a cupcake. Sigh...
Give your human an extra kiss from me for her special day.
And I love all the food talk, next to dead squirrels and digging, this is my favourite topic.
I also agree, we need a Daily Puglet Book or calendar. We could purchase it here on your blog and/or through Frolic. I bet there's a whole bunch of us here that would preorder a book. Something for your human to think about?

Happy Belated Special Day to your human - as my husband says to me - we're not getting older, we're getting wiser :) I know; sounds dorky when he says it too :) Also; what a special man indeed - bacon maple cupcakes - wow!! Puglet - you make my day :)

Happy special day to your human.

Barbara said...

Bacon Maple Cupcake???? Wow, I'd be in absolute HEAVEN!! You are one lucky puglet!!!

pugsmom said...

This is Phoebe in Oregon. I simply drooled when I saw your picture with that cupcake and then you said it was made with bacon. OMD!!! I have three pug sisters and I'm the only tubey one in the family. Mom doesn't want to play favorites, so because of me no one gets bacon :-( I'll have to enjoy bacon through your desciptions. Make me taste it Puglet!!

My mom really loved all the comments on todays post, she even laughed out loud.

Congratulations to Belle Mia on winning the cook book. Mom says she's really a cutie.

Hey Puglet,
Bacon in a cupcake? And it was all yours? The Man is awesome! If food doesn't = love, I don't know what does.

Hope your human enjoyed her special day.

Looking forward to reading about all your upcoming adventures.

Snorts and snarfles,

Was it that look that got you the cupcake? Because if it was, I've gotta go practice so somebody around here will give me bacon...

We're with Isabella...where did the Man get those cupcakes? Were they made for humans or pugs because they scream PUG to us.

Hi Bad Annie!!!

You are sooooo intelligent!!! (acredito que com tanta crítica, voce possa entender o meu idioma e responder também, em português!). In any way, thank you for your great idea! Like as your name - Bad Annie, its perfect!
But you can put the name in one line - "The Daily Puglet", and down "Adventures", or "The Bad Comments Of My Diary" and I believe that all lovers of Pug in the world would buy so much more!
Thanks for your interest.
