Before I say who The Randomizer picked to win the Carnivore Crunch snacks, I need to ask for some juju. Big time juju.

It's for my friend Lulu. That's her in today's picture, laying in the dirt looking really unhappy. Lulu isn't usually unhappy, but she'd just done a Flying Wallenda maneuver off the side of a hill and landed funny. And I don't mean ha-ha funny. I mean the kind of funny that lands you here:

Yeah. The vet. Because after Lulu got up from her crazy landing, one of her back legs wouldn't work. Like, at all. Our humans even had to carry her back to the car and Lulu isn't exactly little. Or light.

The vet was worried about something called an ACL, or thought maybe Lulu's hip popped out, so they pumped her full of drugs and did some xrays. Nothing really showed up, so the vet sent Lulu home to rest and sent the xrays to an expert.
Word from the xray expert will come today and we want it to be good, no-surgery news.

So please send juju to Lulu's right back leg. Here's what she looks like, so you know exactly where to send it:

OK! Now, for the lucky winner of the Mr. Chewy's snack giveaway.....

Out of 80 comments, The Randomizer thought 6 was a good number and 6 = Spike. So congratulations Spike & Laurie! Yesterday was their three year anniversary together and now they celebrate it again with supertasty Carnivore Crunch.

Spike, have your human send my human an email with your address so we know where to send your eatables. You can mail me at dailypuglet -at-

Oh Lulu you are so beautiful, and sad :( We're sending Polish juju your way. Hope you'll be able to run and jump (carefully) again soon, without stupid surgery !!! lots of love Fredzik Zuzia and Pucia

Payton said...

I'm so sorry that Lulu got injured. She's like an X Gamer doing those scary stunts. I hope it's nothing serious and the vets can fix her leg soon. I will definitely pray for her!
Pug, would you tell your human about a cool dog book that I thought she should check out to get inspired for the 1000 Pugs book? It's called 101 Salivations (For the Love of Dogs) by Rachael Hale. Obviously no where near the number of dogs your human will be dealing with, but the layout is interesting and all the dogs are numbered too which reminded me of 1000 Pugs. There's also a cool appendix in the back with a short bio/description of each dog by number. I was going to email this info to her, but I bet her inbox is still full so I didn't want to add to it.
Also, hope your human's hand is getting better.
Lastly congrats to Spike!

Lots and lots of pug juju for Lulu, I hope the medicine is helping and that no surgery is needed.

Just a few weeks ago a dog I know hurt his back leg, no one saw him do it but he wouldn't walk on it at all. It was very swollen, but after a few days on some good medicine he was as good as new again.

Congrats to Spike, enjoy the eatables!

Jaco said...

Oh dear, our Princess corgi tore her ACL and was sad. It was a big surgery, but she got back on her feet! Lots of juju for Lulu, nice to see you helping her feel better puglet.

Hi Pug,

Positive juju is being sent from Austin for Lulu. I hope she doesn't need surgery. But if she does, and has to have her knee done, maybe she will become bionic like me.

It's no longer day, but night. Still sending up big time prayers that Lulu got a good report. God knows that prayers would come from me at a later time, and he put those on his list.

Congratulations Spike. Hope we get a report from you about the eatables. Enjoy.
