1000 PUGS???

Internet, we have a problem. Well... I guess we don't have a problem. But I totally do. Because last night when my human was sleeping I broke into HAL4 and do not like what I found.

Here's the deal. I haven't heard a peep about the TSS in awhile but know it hasn't gone away, so when my human fell asleep early last night I totally snooped for clues. I don't know what your human's computer looks like inside, but HAL4 is crazy-full of really random stuff.
Like tons of it. And that's just on the desktop or whatever.

So I looked for anything that seemed suspicious and
started clicking. And clicking. And clicking. Mouse-ing must be way easier when you have thumbs because when you don't, it's not fun at all. Things got really un-fun when I found a folder thingy called 1000 PUGS.

Yeah. 1000. Pugs.

Uhh, last time I checked there was only ONE Pug and that's me. So who are the other 999? No freaking idea.
Before I could click on anything else, my human woke up in the middle of the night to pee. Luckily she was too sleepy to notice me running back to bed, but I was *this* close to getting caught.

Big question is: what do I do now?? I already interrogated Dutch and of course he totally knows nothing. I also asked google and found a link to 1000pugs.com, but that was even more mysterious. And troubling.

See for yourself.

Does anyone here know anything about these 999 pugs-that-are-not-me??

* * *

Huge Happy Whelp Day to Mini Moo. She's a pug not a cow, but she is mini. Let's all eat something moo-ey for Mini Moo's day.

PS: My snout is smooth and cute and 99% Funk free!

Wanna know! Wanna know! Wanna Know!
Please fill me in when you get more info. I'm a pug in a million so does that mean I am eligible?
Love Noodles

Heya Noodles ~

I wanna know too!!! I mean, you know as much as I do.... except you're excited and I'm not sure I am :\

moPSY+MISIOber said...

I think it's your Human's new project :) maybe she'll try to take photos of 1000 pugs in one year :) maybe it'll be connected to pug rescue somehow, maybe there will be a book, which I would love to have.
Pug your Human loves you and Dutch the most, so even 1 milion pugs couldn;t change it ;) don't worry :) and I love you too Misiober

Happy day to Mini Moo (love the name ::)

P.s. I'm in touch with pug butter lady Kathy (her husband's family came from Poland;:) me and my friends are preparing our first order:) no dry noses here in Poland :) thank you Pug !!!

Crabbie Chris said...

Picture this...1000 pugs all eating your special treats...oh the nightmare.
Hehe...I totally know because I super orb'd my mom into telling me. I'm not gonna say...well I might tell Dutch because he's so dreamy.

Maggie the Pug in Dallas said...

Yep, it's part of the TSS I bet chat! She is taking pics of lots of pugs, many pugs, different pugs...but you will always be the NUMBER ONE Pug so don't you worry Puglet! But, I can relate cuz I know I am the only Pug that should ever be talked about in my house, much less 999 other ones!

Happy day to Mini Moo...gotta love that name!

Foodie Girl said...

I had my human sign up so we can find out. In the meantime, I think you have 2 options. Drug your human...(I don't know how, but I've seen it done on TV) or 2 - use guilt.

I'm using the guilt angle as we speak - see yesterday my Mommy and I went to the dog park and I was sitting on the bench with all the humans (who sometimes gives me treats and always scratches by my ears). Anyway, Mom wanted my to run around (so I don't get too tubey). Well when I was jumping down, my paw got stuck on the bench.

I cried a little, but there was this really cute Italian Greyhound - so I didn't want to be too babyish. Well everyone ran over to me and were just rubbing me, giving me treats and everything!!! I'm ok now, but I'm milking it for all I can. I got a special dinner (chicken livers), mom let me sleep on her special smooshy pillow, I got belly rubs all night and a bully stick!!!

Guilt totally works...also doesn't hurt that she accidentally locked my cat brother in the office before going to bed the night before- so she's just bogged down in the guilt.

Well whatever you do, I hope it helps....because my mom says we won't know what 1000pugs is until next week - I don't think I can wait!

PS Happy Day to Mini Moo!!


Payton said...

Hi Pug! I signed up so I can keep an eye on this 1000 pug thing. I bet it has something to do with rescue. Don't worry, like Misiober said, your human loves you so much...but of course, I'd totally use some guilt like Mookie suggests so you can get lots of foodables!
PS. My mom is so relieved that someone else has a crowded desktop filled with icons too...whatever that means...

Anonymous said...

Puglet, Your nose looks beautiful and I'm sure you have nothing to worry about. There may be a thousand pugs but you are number one!

Anonymous said...

Woooow, 1,000 pugs! What a party that would be !! Maybe it's rescues, maybe it's TSS or may it's the number of Daily Puglet followers .... woof-woof x 999 !! Maybe when you reach the 1,000 mark they'll be lots and lots of cookies and other eatables too incredible to imagine. oh ...oh maybe the Baconator will make an appearance. Keep us posted. You need to do more late night recognizant work. We need to know!

Happy Special Day Mini Moo. We're eating a cookie in your honor today.

Lafayette Lola said...

Um...Pug, could you be any cuter? I don't know about 1000 pugs, but it sure does drive me nuts when my folks look at YOUR pictures and say 'aaaaawwww'.
My mom's gimpy brain totally malfunctioned or misfired or whatever, so she can't drive for 3 months. Yup, you got it... no pug park for 90 days. Instead, we are walking fools these days. Maybe we'll both lose a little tubeyness.
Anyways, cool it with the cuteness, Puglet, will ya?
Lafayette Lola

Meredith LeBlanc said...

We signed up too, we think 1000 Pugs sounds awesome! I mean, come on, Pugs rock, right? Pugs are extra special and help make the world a way better place.

But don't worry handsome Pug, you'll always be number One to us. You inspire us everyday.

Big Pug Love & Kisses ♥♥♥
Meredith & Scarlet

Ollie said...

Can you believe Bellatrix knows, won't tell you but will spill the beans to Dutch because he's "dreamy"? That girl's got a lot of sass! I think you need to bribe her with some of your best eatables.

It's exciting though! You're Pug #1or King Pug and the rest will be like your followers or entourage. Can't wait to find out more! And like Gosia, I'm hoping that maybe there's a book or something that will come out of it.

By the way, my human's computer is super-boring just emails, spreadsheets and pdf crap crammed into files. She keeps the desktop really tidy because she has this sleeping puppy (not me!) that she doesn't want covered with icons. She's very attached to a dog she doesn't even know. Crazy!

Happy Special Day Mini Moo! In honor of the Moo, I'll have some cheese or if I'm lucky gellato today.

Suzy said...

1000 pugs sounds like a great time to me!

Minnie Moo looks totes adorbs in her bday pic on her blog :)

Anna Elder said...

i don't know either, but i can't wait to find out.

MochiMachoMarshmallow said...

I think 1000 pugs = heaven. How can it not be heaven with a 1000 pug faces begging for food or better yet 1000 pugs tilting their heads.

Happy Welp day Mini Moo.


1000 said...

Puglet, I don't know what it is, but I signed up for it. Is that bad??

you'll always be #1 in our eyes and ears and noses

THE PUGLET said...

Hiya Misiober-Gosia,

I guess it could be some crazy new project. You seem to know a lot. Do you think maybe 1000 pugs could be 1000 pictures of ME??

THE PUGLET said...

Not funny Bellatrix!!

Keep orbing. I want to know everything. I'll make Dutch kiss you or something if you tell me.

Happy belated b'days to Lucy, Benny, Kahlua & to Puglet's aunt Alison, hope you all had a great day! Happy whelp day to Mini Moo! I just put an order in for the snout soother, Molly has a yucky crusty nose, so I'm hoping this helps her. Thanks for the heads up.

Ann, Frodo, Molly & Cleo

THE PUGLET said...

Oooh Maggie,

I like your only-1-pug-in-this-house policy. Genius!

THE PUGLET said...

Heya Mookie ~

Ouch. Sucks about the paw, but glad you got all sorts of goodness out of it. I don't know about the guilt thing with my human (she forgets stuff too much to stay guilty very long) but I LOVE the drug idea. I've totally seen that work on TV! Not exactly sure how I can get drugs to drug her with, but Google might know.

I feel a plan coming on. Thanks for the idea!

moPSY+MISIOber said...

1000 pugs mean ONLY 1000 pugs! I think they will be numbered just like those special vinyls made in a 1000 pieces, so exclusive, unique and priceless!!! And you will be number 1, the most unique Pug ever :) and that's why you don't need to be 1000 pugs :)

THE PUGLET said...

Heya Payton ~

Thanks for keeping an eye on things for me. I heard my human say something about 125 signer-uppers so far, so it's good to know a lot of them are my friends.

Don't know what icons are either, but HAL4 is full of them!

THE PUGLET said...


Thank you for noticing my nice new nose. It feels so soothed and looks so cute!

THE PUGLET said...

Hey JSPs ~

Hmmm. I guess we could be trying to hit 1000? I mean, the DP friend count is almost 600. But not everyone here is a pug so that wouldn't 100% make sense. Even for my gimpy human.

I'm planning something though. Operation, uh, drug-my-human-and-break-into-HAL4... again?

THE PUGLET said...


Did you go to that cranberry thing? My cousin Sophie was totally there!

THE PUGLET said...

Hi L.L. ~

Sorry about the cuteness. I just can't help it. Also hugely sorry about the gimpy brain malfunction. Pug Sunday is coming up here in SF, I know we could totally get you and your people here. My human says gimpy brains have to stick together.

THE PUGLET said...

Hi Meredith & Scarlett,

You're right. Pugs totally rock. We are extra special and we do make the world a way better place. But what's that got to do with my human!?!

THE PUGLET said...

Heya Ollie!

Yeah, I know. Bellatrix is so not fair. I don't think she really knows anything though. She's got a big mouth (and bigger feet), but there's no way she could fit a secret this big in it. No way.

So, do you think if I put a cute picture of me on HAL4's desktop my human would clean off some of the junk? That would make future recon missions sooo much easier!

THE PUGLET said...


It's not bad, I guess. But like everyone else (except maybe Bellatrix), I really don't know!

Minnie Moo said...

Thanks for the birthday shout out!

Pugs2Luv said...

Ok, ok we know too. We were in the car for like 2 hours with Bellatrix this past Sunday and you know, there's only so much to talk about. So 1000 pugs may have come up. We were sworn to secrecy, so we can't tell. Although Phoebe, says she's not opposed to the idea of a bribe(for the right price).
Luv, Zoey &Phoebe

Hey Puglet,
We've never been with 1000 pugs but if you go to Pug Nationals there are a few hundred. Mom called it 'wall to wall pugs'.

Well keep us posted cause we want to be part of the 1000 pugs.

Hey, mom used the vitamin E oil on Ellie's nose and its bee-U-T-FULL.

Ellie, Emmitt and Eli
PS - be careful sneaking into HAL4, we think paw prints are like finger prints, you might get busted.

Crabbie Chris said...

Hey Pug....and Lafayette Lola!! My mom and I live near you...if you ever need a ride she's offering. I need to meet you Lola. Pug Sunday in SF is fun and I totally bite Pug's back fat...it's so much fun! You have to come with us. Email my mom...pug fun has to happen!!

THE PUGLET said...

Wait. Zoey & Phoebe, you know too? I'll give you anything in my cookie jar or Dutch's cookie jar if you tell me. Seriously. Spill it.

THE PUGLET said...

Hey 3Es (+vit E)

Hmmm. When is this Nationals thing? Maybe it has something to do with 1000 pugs?

So cool the Vit E worked. My nose is super smooth too. Way better than the FUNK!

Fritter from the Lo-Flo said...

Maybe it has to do with the garden of 1000 Buddahs that is near here. If you think about it, pugs and Buddahs have a lot in common. Hope we find out soon! Namaste!

THE PUGLET said...

Heya Fritter ~

I asked Google about your Garden of 1000 Buddhas, just in case it might be a clue.

The Buddha Garden people have been making their statues for 10 years. The 1000pugs.com site says 1 year. If my human is going to abandon me for 999 other pugs, I hope it only takes a year and not 10 :\

Anonymous said...

Maybe its 1000 pugs with poostashes!!!!!!!! just kidding You would still be the star! Love monkeypig

pugsx4 said...

What is up that I cannot click on other peoples' blogs that I understand that you know from your blog? It used to be that everyone hooked up with everyone but I have noticed lately that people are not "sharing" as much as they used to.
I don't get it.

Anonymous said...

Heya Puglet,

I also think this must have to do with a new pug project of your human. Do not worry - for her you will always be the no. 1 pug. No doubt about this.

We have also signed up, hopefully this is ok from overseas.

Glad your nose is better *hehe*, you have got a very cute nose by the way.

We are patiently waiting for news of 1000 pugs.

Pug greetings from Berlin

Wow, 1000 Pugs - my mom says that is pure heaven!!

But not to worry, Puglet - you will always be #1 to everyone here. We all lova ya, man. My mom signed up, too - we can't wait to find out what all of this TSS is about.

Does Dutch get to the SF Pug Sunday? My mom's friend has 2 beautiful Dalmations. Mom is seriously thinking about bringing me to SF Pug Sunday!! We would so love to meet you and Dutch and your human, gimpy brain and all!!!

Can't wait to hear more about 1000 Pugs! Hope Mini Moo had a pugtacular birthday!

Can we be in your 1000 book? http://MrPugAndMrOtherPug.com

THE PUGLET said...

Hi Mr. Pug + Mr. Other Pug,

My human has told me nothing! I guess the world will find out about 1000 Pugs on Nov 1, so check back with me then. I think it's a Tuesday.
