0% FUN vs 1000% FUN

Me + Dutch are at the House of Meat right now so my human could be alone with her broken tooth. I heard her say something about a root canal? No idea. But when I asked Google about it, the whole thing sounded like 0% fun.

Lucky for me, the HoM is totally the opposite of a root canal - 100% fun. Wait. Make that 1000% fun. Between The Man and the Goons (my new name for the crazy Labrador brothers) and the MEAT (and cheese and pizza crusts and cookies and Doritos and all the other stuff my human never eats or feeds us), I'm pretty sure the HoM is the best place on earth.

Please don't make me go!!!

Don't tell anyone, but I love staying at the HoM so much that when it's time to go home, I don't want to go. Not that I don't love me human. I totally do. Really. But The Man is a dude and I kinda really love dudes.

Dudes lie in bed and eat pizza and watch TV. Dudes are into meat, not carrots. Dudes snore louder than I do. They don't have rules and don't care if I get fat. Basically, dudes rule.

Of course I'll totally be there for my human when she's done getting canal-ed. I'll snuggle and lick her face (even though it grosses her out) and even pretend to like eating carrots. But deep inside, my inner dude will really miss the House of Meat.

PS: Fish finally really did the Big Float for good.

I totally know what you mean. While I don't have a "dude" my favorite person to hang with is my mommy's mommy. She totally gets me and doesn't care if I get fat. She understands my need for food and is always willing to provide it (and the good stuff too - steak, chicken, cheese sticks!) She even bought a can of SPAM just for me!!!

Sorry to hear about the Fish - but I guess he's in a better bowl now?


Anonymous said... look pathetically sad about going home with your canal-ed human. I understand that the HoM is a dude thing...but sometimes you just have to suck it up and do what you have to do. Granted, pizza and cookies DO sound pretty darn amazing...Just sayin'

PS- Sorry about Fish again. Are you sure he's really gone this time?

Hi Puglet,
We love our mom but this idea in her head to keep us thin is wearing how shall we say 'thin'.

Our fav place is the country club we go to when mom and dad go on vacation. Auntie Cheryl makes dog food cake, yep cake just for dog with yogurt icing. We don't get pizza crust or stuff like that but cake and icing we can handle any day.

Sorry to hear about Fish, poor little swimmer.

Hi Pug
I'm sorry ... and happy about the Fish...

Pug you are boy, and boys are mostly "dudes" like The Man, so you're pug-dude in a way :) Girl-Humans, are not like that. We CARE, unfortunatly about everything :( so dude-care combination is really healthy :)kiss Pug
and the movie is just too funny :)

BOL!! Great video. I totally do that when it's time to leave Grandmaw's house! I guess we can call it the House of Treats (HOT?) 'cause it's always treats-galore there! Home baked treats, chicken treats, treats, treats, treats!! Love it!!

Good luck to your human. My pawpa had a canal last year. He was so dopey when he came home mom was afraid he'd fall on me!!! You're right. It sounds like 0% fun! Be a good puggie when she gets home, okay?

Puglet - I love the man at my house. He lets me do man-work outside and gives me forbidden treats like cheese and beef jerky! He is so totally cool. You were hilarious in your video... love the curl wag! It sounds like the HoM is super fun!

Hope all goes well with the canal and your human. No fun at all!

Barbara said...

Oh boy, HouseofMeat sounds like a really great place. But doesn't your mom give you a nice warm bed and cuddles and take you to see Golden Chickens? She sounds fun too...

I know what you mean! My dude-human is the best! He always barbecues yummy meats, and while it is cooking, he slips me bits of it! My little dude-human is still broken, but when he isn't he is the best to wrestle with. Every pug should have at least one awesome dude in their life.

Payton said...

My mom's dad (Gampy) is just like the Man at the HoM. He spoils me, but not rotten. I just love him. But I always suck it up and make sure my mom and dad know how much I want to go back home with them. They do let me sleep in the big bed and they give me all kinds of great things (food, treats, toys, food, etc) so I can't complain.
PS. RIP Fish.

Every pug should have a dud and HOM to visit.
My dude is allergic to me...

Lola said...

uh- that was supposed to say that every pug should have a DUDE

Puglet, it that man in the video is 'The Man' I'd say he loves you just as much as you love him! Luckily pugs have extra love to give so there's plenty to go around for everyone!

ps you are such a great tail-wagger!

kimmy said...

that is the cutest video. he definitely knows how to work "the man". what a great feeling to have such love from the pug! cute.

Noodles said...

I totally DON'T know what your are talking about. We have all girls in my house. I do meet dudes at Auntie B's Boot Camp but they only take me for an occasional walk - treats are not happening there.
So. . .
I guess HOM has no real meaning for me.
Sigh. . .
What's pizza?
Love Noodles

Oh Puglet...I totally relate even if I am a girl pug. The man in my house is way cool! He gives me all kinds of stuff to eat that I shouldn't get. Something about Dudes and how they don't have rules and stuff. Glad you enjoyed your time at the HoM it sounded like lots of food...uh, I mean fun!

Pug Slope said...

Puglet, I can't blame you for not wanting to leave the HoM. It sounds like heaven. Your tail wagging skills are off the hook! Mine doesn't wag - it just sorta totters back and forth ever-so-slightly. I can tell by the big stretch you do with your dude that you have a strong bond with him. I always like to do a big stretch on my parents when they come home. -Love, Sid

Root canals are totally -100% fun. A dentist made 3 attempts to do a root canal on me and finally just had to pull the tooth because I kept swelling up like a toad. Take extra special care of your human after being canal-ed.

HoM is really a fun place, and I can see the two way love in the video, BUT mom wants you to stay healthy and she makes every effort to do so...that is TOTAL love, even if she isn't a Dude.

RIP Fish, we know you are a much happier fish now.

Are you an apricot pug like me??

Hey Puglet, you look just like us except our tails are a little longer b/c we're puggles!

That HoM sounds fantastic but remember, Puglet, places can look and smell great but at the end of the day, there's just no place like home or our Hu-Momma's lovin!

Hu-Mom keep us grounded but The Man takes us on adventures and lets us soar until we're so tired from running and panting, we have to take a nap!

Enjoy the best of BOTH your worlds!

Hey Pug,
You met my dad, he rocks! He's always slipping me something yummy when mom isn't looking. He runs around the house with me and plays all the time! I'm sure he'll sneak you something yummy when you see him next time, or throw Dutch's Henrietta chicken.
I seriously hope your mom is ok. She needs her mouth in perfect working order to give you kisses.
RIP little fish

Meat and wrestling is pretty tough to compete with...

Totally I am a mama's girl but my brother Neko is a daddy's boy. My dad is pretty much only one male human I like... I have learned human could be a good thing, but I am still scared of men... your man looks nice - I can tell he treats you good : )
Good bye Fish. Swim away, dude ~

Hope your human's canal goes ok, our human has had a few, and while its no fun to sit with your mouth open for a long time, the drugs work! Worst part is the bill.

You are so funny, what a clip. The HOM sounds a little like heaven.

Hello Puglet,
H o M vs. Home?? I think Dorothy said it best in the Wizard of Oz, "There is no place like home". Glad your Hu-Mom is better after getting her tooth fixed and condolences on Fish swimming over the Rainbow Bridge. Will you be at Pug Sunday?
Licks and Snortles,

My man-human (huMan?) has allergies just like me, so he's pretty good about following the rules... except when he's enabling my intense strawberry addiction.
HIS dad, on the other hand, is my NEW FAVORITE after he slipped me half a sloppy joe when he came to visit! I'm convinced the fact that I've been scratching my nipples off ever since is unrelated to the awesomeness that is the sloppy joe.

SIP, fish.
