I'm so glad everyone liked the cookie (and other stuff) recipes. Huge thanks to everyone who sent one in. We're totally going to do a 2nd edition, so don't worry if you're not in this one. There will be another chance :)


I've learned a lot in the last 2 years from everyone here. The #1 thing (other than bacon) is that even though the Daily Puglet is mostly all about me, it's also about all of you. So when I read a comment from Sammy last week asking about our birthdays here at Casa de Puglet, I got the most genius idea ever.

Wouldn't it be kinda cool if everyone knew everyone's birthday - not just mine and Dutch's and my humans? I figure with 448 Daily Puglet followers, we could probably celebrate someone's birthday every single day. And you know what birthdays mean: birthday cookies! Cookies for all!

How cool would that be??

Now. I know sometimes when you get recycled, nobody tells your new people when you were born. So if you don't know your birthday, that's cool. Gotcha Days (the day your people got ya) are just like birthdays. Sometimes they're even better.

So. Today I want to know your name and your birth or gotcha day (+/- where you live). My human will put everybody's special day on a special calendar and when your day comes around, I'll wish you a happy one here on the DP. And we will all have a reason to eat cookies.

Uhm, y'know, in your honor.

Puglet, June 25 (San Francisco)
Dutch, Sept 3 (San Francisco) CORRECTION: Sept 17th!

PPS: HAPPY DAY to Gracie!!

Awesome idea Puglet!! I came from a puppy mill so can you believe I didn't even know what cookies WERE until about a month ago?? Now I look for just about any excuse to have some.

Scarlet's gotcha day is May 11th - we're coming up on 1 year.

On May 11, 2010 I met Scarlet at the airport and she was a mere 11 pounds from livin' on the streets in LA. Thanks to cookies and love she's 22!

Love to you Puglet!

Oh boy!

Trixie's Gotcha day was June 4, 2004.
Minnie's was June 19, 2010!

I'm assuming both were born sometime in April...but who knows!

Gracie the Agility Pug said...

Great idea. Because TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!! Not sure what mom has planned for me, but it better be big. I'm a rescue, but I came with papers. So mom always remembers my birthday is 4-5-6.

Misha said...

Our Mom isn't really sure what day we were born, but she knows we were both born in April 2003. Mom says she can't remember our 'gotcha' days cuz she can't remember a day when we weren't in her life. She says that everybody feels blue on April 15th, so she celebrates our birthdays on that day. My name is Harley, I'm a pug and my sister is a very snooty cocker spaniel named Mimi. (I think her name is perfect for her because she thinks, "Me! Me!" all the time!)

Barney the Pug said...

My gotcha day is Sept 18 (Denver, CO). I can't wait until I hit the one year mark with my new human, I've already heard rumors of a delicious, I mean fun, party!!!

I can see from the other posts, that there's another dog here from my city. Hi, Riley!

THE PUGLET said...

Cool. I'm glad everyone is filling up the Official Calendar of Special Days. Keep 'em coming!

It's also superawesome that we're finding out where everyone is from. Maybe there will even be a love connection like on those match.com commercials :)

THE PUGLET said...

PS: My human screwed up on Dutch's day. She looked on his paperwork and it's not September 3. Even though we've celebrated his birthday on that day for the past 4 years.

Miss Gimpybrain says all his papers are in Dutch and she doesn't read Dutch. He was really born Sept 17. Ooops!

Hi Puglet!!! You are always coming up with GREAT ideas!! My human is the one who has been gimpy lately so she is really glad there will be another chance to send in a recipe.

Hi Puglet! We love all your stories and great ideas. Our mom knows our birthdays AND gotcha days so we feel pretty special. One of us came from a breeder and then mom and dad learned about rescue so the other one came from rescue (was born into rescue!)Mom and dad always say they were crazy for having essentially two puppies at once, but they keep laughing and smiling at us so we're pretty sure they're going to keep us (even if one of us eats poop).

Kahlua the Pug said...

Puglet! You are genious (coming up with reasons for cookie days ;)!

Thank you so much for bringing us all together.

I'm Kahlua the Pug, and I was born October 23, 2006, which makes me 4 and a half. I am currently living with my [grand] human in Cincinnati, Ohio, but was a sunny california beach dog in Los Angeles for my first 4 years. So I've just endured my first winter + snow. My mommy human is in Stockholm as of the moment and I hope to be joining her soon. So it's not like I'm being recycled with my [grand] human, I'm just being completely spoiled, with cookies & cuddles, like every day.

Anonymous said...

This is a super idea, Puglet! Some more cookies every day would be great. I have just lost one kilo, so I can sort of afford it. Sort of ..

My birthday is 13th June, I will be two years old. Last year we celebrated with my pug girlfriend Trudy and we made a boat trip. Very exciting! I tried to jump from the boat but luckily Mom saved me. Next time I won't try .. or may be just a little.

Great idea, puglet. Megans gotcha day is November 10th. Jasper's birthday is January 10th and his gotcha day is October 4th, which is also their human's birthday (best present ever). Megan (fawn pug) and Jasper (black pug) live on a small island off the coast of Maine (North Haven). It's the best place in the world for dogs. There are only 350 people so they all know Jasper and Megan by name and always stop for a pat and a hello.

Hi Pug,

LOVE the idea! I don't know when Rodney (the Boston Terrier and love of my life)was born, it was sometime in July 2002. I don't remember his gotcha date either but it was sometime in the Fall of 2002 during law school finals! So, we'll celebrate his birthday as July 4th! Lucky (the Pug and most loving dog who has owned me) was born sometime in July as well but in 2007, I think July 16th.

Hi Puglet!

Wow...another fantastic idea! I don't know when my real birthday is. I found my dad in the Spring of 2003. We don't remember the exact day so we celebrate on May 17th every year...Norwegian Constitution Day. Aka...the biggest party day of the year in Norway! We thought that was a good fit since that's where my ancestors are from :)

Looking forward to eating lots of cookies in celebration of all these special days! I live in Vancouver, BC!

Your feline friend,
Ernest Merriweather Picklebottom III

My name is Buddy Wackwitz and I live in Houston, Texas. My birthday is May 5. My Mommy makes liver brownies for me and my neighborhood friends (YUUUUUUMM!)

You need to come to Houston in March. We host the biggest rodeo in the U.S. I'm not much on the rodeo part, but it is a TOTAL barbeque meat fest.

Lots of licks!

Great idea, Puglet! My birthday is on May 30, 2009, but my new humans aren't so sure because my adoption agency lady didn't have my records from my mean former owner who left me in the woods after I showed him I wasn't very good at treeing a coon!
Do we all get a copy of this calendar, by the way? Or do we download it? I'd love to send cookies to as many b-day pals as pawsible, you know!

Mary said...

Brainstorm level genius! You have to change the name of the blog to the Daily Cookie though. My birthday is June 18 and my Gotcha Day is August 14 so I totally think I need 2 extrasuperspecial canine party days. Mr. Bear doesn't know his birthday exactly but Mom picked October 31, because that was "in the neighborhood". Whatevertheheck that means. Mr. Bear's Gotcha Day was Jan. 1. Mom calls him her Holiday Mutt. If there's cookies involved, I'm in it with all 4 feet.

Hi Puglet!

My doctor records say that I was born on November 1, 2009, but my people didn't get me until February 13, 2010 (daddy gave me to mommy for Valentime's Day). Whatever day your human wants to put on the calender is cool with me.

Your bro,

My name is Pancake and my birthday is November 11. I live in New Haven, CT, and guess what? My humans call me "puglet" all the time! But there's no mistaking the real deal.

Lindsay said...

Hi Puglet, my name is Ajax I live in Arlington, Virginia. I'm a devil pug, but only because I was born 6-6-06! My Mommy got me slightly used, but when she adopted me my first mom gave her my puppy pictures and papers... I heart cookies too!

Kelso said...

Our birthday is 4/12/08. We just had a HUGE pool party with all our local friends. Mom says we can now legally drink but she only gave us water and we have been drinking that for years so who know what that means. We are so lucky cause our Mom LOVES to cook so we had a bacon, carrot, and peanut butter cake with peanut butter and cream cheese icing. It was AWESOME! We also ate tons of watermelon and nibbled on people's ribs. Next year you will have to come, but sadly mom requires all pugs to wear life jackets during the party. Love, Tiger & Tallulah

Just catching up on my Daily Puglet and saw this post! My name is Marzipan and my birthday is March 20. My stinky brother Double Stuff aka Dubs just celebrated his birthday on April 12. We're both Boston terriers and love our fellow short nosed brothers, pugs (and puglets).

Marzipan said...

Oh hi, Marzipan again! We're from Hawthorne, NJ. My full birthday is March 20, 2008, and my brother Double Stuff's is April 12, 2009. Sorry I'm not great at following directions. We also live in a house of carrots by the way... wish I knew someone with a house of meat! Sounds great!

Rocky said...

Hi Puglet, my name is Rocky and I live in England. My birthday is May 12, 2009; my human says I'll be 2 soon and I have to start acting grown up. Hmm.

THE PUGLET said...

Hiya Marzipan ~

No problemo on the direction thing. Happy late Whelp Day to Dubs! I'll see if I can score an extra cookie in his honor :)

THE PUGLET said...

Rocky -

Tell your human that grown-up-ness doesn't really happen until a pug turns 3. Or five. Or never.
