100% HAPPY

So, last year The Man brought us a little box of little cakes to celebrate my human's special day. One of the cakes even had bacon in it, just for me. I was kinda hoping that would happen again this year, but I haven't seen The Man in like forever so I didn't think it would happen... until Dutch pointed out that other people can buy cakes too.

Uhm, since when is Dutch so smart??

Anyway. I asked my human if she could please get me a little cake so I could celebrate her big day. I really wanted another bacon one, but told her any flavor would be OK. She didn't say yes, but she didn't exactly say no either. When I woke up this morning, there was a cake waiting for me.

Well, sort of. Because yesterday was Love Day or whatever and I guess people want to eat red things on Love Day, there weren't any bacon cakes at the store. And because my human is clueless about cakes, she didn't know that Red Velvet cakes are made of chocolate. Even though Red Velvet is red and chocolate is brown.

Yeah, I know. Kinda confused me too.
And since chocolate is bad for dogs, my human said I could only eat the white part of my cake. Uhm, hello! 99% of my cake was red. What kind of celebration would that be??


So I told my human I love her waaaay too much to only celebrate with the white part. And then snarfed down 100% of my cake before she could stop me.

Happy Birthday, Miss Amanda!! I hope you got a little cake for yourself too. Or maybe you were going to eat the red velvet one after Pug licked off the white stuff? Can't trust a pug around food! I probably would have tried to snag it too. I hope you all enjoy the day with a nice sunny hike to clear the mind and relax.

Have a very Happy Birthday! Enjoy the day. Pug, remember it's her day, you can't determine the agenda.

Happy Special Day to your human!!! Lucky YOU that you got to scarf down a cupcake. My human found something you would LOVE. BACON ROSES!!! Yup. BACON roses. You can see them if you follow this link. You may have to scroll down a bit but they are there.!/Thrillist?sk=wall

LOVE these pictures, so freakin adorable. I don't know how you stayed still in front of that cupcake without eating it!

Crabbie Chris said...

Hey Pug, I hope you didn't eat the only cupcake for your mom! That would totally suck dude. What did you give her for her birthday? Maybe you gave her your back fat to chew on? hehe
I would tell you to give her a kiss from me, but you eat poo, and I know she's not down with that. I shall have to dish out my own kisses to her next time I see her. My kisses are sweet and poo free.
So you better be good to your mom today, and listen to her! I know my Dutch is so good, I don't have to remind him.
So Happiest of Birthdays Miss Amanda!! Loves Bellatrix

happy birthday Amanda! i love that first picture - looking longingly at the little cake - that is too cute! hope you have a great day! and you too, puglet!

Noodles said...

Puglet, tell your human Amanda, the lady with the bestest and most abundant treats ever, HAPPY BIRTHDAY from me, my Mommy K and Mommy A.
Love Noodles
I think it is totally appropriate that you got 100% of what looked like a really small cake. You'd have to eat almost your body weight in chocolate cupcakes for it to be REALLY bad for you. A little diarrhea's a small price to pay for such YUMMINESS!

Emma said...

Happy Happy Birthday Amanda!! Em and I will have a cupcake for you as well :) AND CONGRATULATIONS on meeting your 1000Pug Kickstarter goal :)

Happy Birthday Amanda!! Hope you have a special day with lots of delicious eatables, and not too many candles on top...
Hugs and Kisses

Michelle + Myko said...

Happy Birthday Amanda! That first picture is incredible. I could have told your mom that a pug cannot be trusted around food, we have a tendency to go big, and swallow instead of chew:) Hope it was as delicious as it looked.

Lots of pug love

MochiMachoMarshmallow said...

Hey Puglet,
Please tell your mommy Happy Birthday for us. We are sending her virtual kisses from us.


moPSY+MISIOber said...

Sammy and Neko said...

Happy birthday, Human !!
Mama fed us red velvet cupcake last night too, but she did not know it's chocolate !!!!!!
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger... just like the song.... we are now stronger~

Enjoy your day~

Happy Birthday, Amanda!! Hope it was as special as you!!

Sneaky, Pug! You know better than to eat the red chocolate.


Suki said...

Happy Birthday Amanda! Hope you, Pug & Duch have a fantastic day!


Anne said...

Glad you got a whole cupcake Puglet! Our boy had a birthday and Lucey and I only got to lick the plate clean. Not. Fair. I hope your mom's day was good and I'm glad you could help her celebrate!

Puglet, from all these comments, I see it's your mommy's birthday. I don't know your mommy but from what I've read, she's a good person who works hard. As a newer fan of the Daily Puglet, I would still like to wish her a Happy Birthday.

On a side note, my mommy had a Boston Terrier from years ago who used to eat cholcolate. She stole it, since my human knows you can't feed a dog chocolate. Once she ripped apart all the Christmas gifts for a small peice of cake. Fortunately, she never got sick, but she did break out in hives. You mentioning the cake made me think of this, and allthough the Boston passed away a looong time ago, I hope you don't mind me sharing. Puglet, you brought back great memories! Enjoy that cake!

Treat Lover said...

Happy Birthday to your human!!! I'm so jealous that you got to eat a whole cupcake. I would have totally scarfed down the whole thing too. Yesterday Chili and I got to eat the whipped cream off a piece of cheesecake that our mom human got for our dad human for human heart day(actually it was really for her, but don't tell because no one is supposed to know that)... Human treats are yummy!
Also, for my birthday last week, my human gave me a tuna cake! It was yummy!!!

Pearl and Tessa said...

Happy Birthday Amanda! Happy cake eating Pug!

Noodle said...

Yay! Happy Birthday!!! Oh Pug, please tell your human we hope her special day is filled with treats and the bacon equivalent for a non-bacon-eater!!

Pug hugs and smooches from Noodle and Mochi!!!

My uncle Schmedley ate one of those huge Hershey kisses once and he didn't even get sick. His vet said it was toxic at one ounce per pound of pug. (he was a BIG pug at 30 lbs!) So don't be scared of the tiny amount in red velvet. I'd eat them every minute if my mom would let me! She only gives me green bean treats like your blind dog friend. I woulda never waited for Nikon with a cupcake in front of me. You have willpower like I will never have! Anyway, hope your human's birthday was awesome and you were good to her! Love from Atlanta!

Puglet, we think it's hilarious how you manage to score treats on your human's special day lol

Happy Birthday to the best blog ever!

I love the picture of you stuffing your face with the cupcake. Pricesless!


Maggie the Pug in Dallas said...

Your human has her special day on Valentine's Day? Wow! That is cool! I thought when you were writing this post you were only referring to V-Day, but after reading what everyone else wrote I guess it was her birthday yesterday too. I got a taste of goodies yesterday cuz of it being Love Day but if I would've known it was your human's B-day I would've blown out a candle for her! Hope she had a great day!

Jazz Girl Pug said...

Gus and I (Jazz) wish Amanda a very happy day-on-which-you-emerged-from-your-mommy! I just had a Happy 9-Bone day like that on Saturday. Guardian said I'm an "Aquarian" like you. I thought I was a pug, but maybe I can be both? She copied this good thing about us: Aquarians are known for their wits, cleverness, and originality. They are individualistic people who have a strong opinion of their own. That pretty much describes me--what about you Amanda??? (Pug, does that seem to be like your human?)

Sabrina said...

Happy Birthday Human! I hear its a big one!

Barney got to share in the birthday too--I dropped a bunch of mini-kit kats on the floor and as I was picking them up, I heard a *crunchcrunch* from behind the cupboard door. Barney was eating one wrapper and all! Oops. I guess as a chocolate lab he can't help himself.

BTW, great first picture--you show such concentration!

SpencerBartholomew said...

Happy Birthday Amanda!! We wish you a day full of sunshine and a year full of happiness. You're the best! So happy Puglet got to have his cupcake! Hopefully Dutch celebrated too! Pugs & Kisses to you!

Happy Birthday Amanda from the 3E's + Lucy our house cat.

Now for you the heck did your human sneak a cupcake into the house without you knowing it. Your slipping Puglet!

You really scarfed down that red/brown/white cupcake, we're surprised you didn't eat the paper too!!!!

Talk to you next week we're going to the Kountry Club while our mom is on vacation.

Happy Birthday, pugs mom! It's nice that you share birthday cupcakes with dutch and puglet. I'm glad that bad scale at the vets office didn't ruin the big day for everyone!

Hal and Opal said...

Happy Birthday Puglet's human!! That picture is WAY too cute!

But what were you thinking?! You know you can't trust us Pugs around food and to ask Puglet to only eat PART of the little cake?! No way!

Puglet, we sure hope you don't get sick or anything.

Your friends in Seattle,

Hal and Opal

Angry Butterfly said...

Red Velvet isn't chocolate, it's just pound cake with red dye. You were cheated out of a cake, Puglet! However, my old Pug, Duke, was allergic to red dye, so it's probably for the best you didn't eat it. You should make your human take you to Devil's Teeth Bakery, they have free dog treats and it's right be the beach!

Way to scarf down that cupcake Pug, you always make Cletus proud.

Happy B-day thumbs of Puglet!! We already ate our special cookie for the day so tomorrow's one will be in your honor! And Puglet, be happy that she found out about the non-brown-chocolate before your stomach did (maybe a bacon one soon?). Have a great year, all three of you!

Pug Slope said...

Happy B-Day Amanda! I hope you got a cupcake as good as the one Puglet got! Love that first photo of Puglet - clearly there's only one thing on his mind. ;)
