Greetings! I hope you don't mind me hijacking the blog today. Pug is probably going to kill me for it. But I'm just so excited about the trip I might be taking with our human in a few weeks.

SO excited.

Pug has been a million different places but I've only ever been in California and Reno. Unless you count The Netherlands where I was born, but I don't remember ever being there so it probably shouldn't count. 

Our human hasn't said a word about where we might be going or when, but rumor has it I'll get to see the other coast. Wherever we go, I want to be ready. So I asked Google what I'll have to pack. Google says the other coast can be quite freezing in January and I'll need to bring warm clothes. I only have two sweaters, but I can't decide which I like better - the pink one, or the other pink one.

The pink one... or the other pink one?

Pug says I shouldn't wear either of my girly-man sweaters because real men don't wear pink.

ME: lots of men in our neighborhood wear pink and they are real.
PUG: men in our neighborhood also walk around naked.
ME: so?
PUG: sooooo, are you going to go naked?
ME: stop trying to confuse me.

I don't know what point Pug was trying to make. Besides, all of my sweaters are pink so I have to wear a pink one. I suppose I could wear one of my human's neck-sweaters, but then half of my body would still be freezing. I really don't understand how those things work.

So, what do you think? Should I be pink with diamonds or pink with hearts?

Hi Dutch, You'll be meeting me and Gus on your Eat Coast trip, so I wanted to toss in my 2 dog treats worth on your sweater. I think the one with the diamonds is very classy and makes you a "stand-out" spotted dog! We are very excited to meet you, since we've never met a dog with spots like yours!

Hi Dutch,
Tell Puglet that REAL men who are secure with their masculinity have NO PROBLEM wearing pink. In fact, my Mommy says sometimes pick makes the man EXTRA sexy. I like the diamond sweater on you as the rich colors really being out your spots.
I am so excited for you and your trip. I have only been in CALIFORNIA!!
Love Noodles

The pink with the diamonds seems to fit you better.

I'm your cousin Sophie, I'm a girl, and I vote for Diamonds! After all, diamonds are a girl's best friend.

Foodie Girl said...


We all think you should wear the diamond ones. Hopefully we'll be able to meet you when you come out to the Eat Coast. Last time Pug and your mom were here, my mom was busy and wouldn't take me to NYC to meet them.

That is awesome that Dutch and Jazz/Gus are meeting up ! How wonderful : ) Why don't you, Dutch take both sweater? It won't hurt to have extra one for "just in case"

Hi Dutch!

The diamonds one is my favorite, however, as a boy who also enjoys wearing pastels and has a rather extensive wardrobe, you need to bring both!! No such thing as too many clothes, my mommy always says. Have fun, but be careful if you have to go in the back of the plane. The idea of you back there kinda scares me and my mommy...

Safe travels,
Louie the chihuahua

Definitely pink with pink diamonds...the more pink the better!

Bailey and Buddy said...

P.S. Is that Puglet's paw on the PINK sweater? I bet he is secretly jealous and trying both on!

We don't have alot of males here in Iowa that wear pink...but if they did i bet they would pick out the diamond one.

Diamonds all the way! And the scarf too, that looks awesome and accentuates your long neck.

Hi Dutch.
I also really like the pink with diamonds. But I must say that you look very handsome in that other photo too, against the purple back drop.

Miley said...

Hey Dutch,

I have pink coat that you can barrow. It is very cute, I think you will like it. I will send it with my mom.


Unknown said...

pink with diamonds of course. Have fun on your trip Dutch.

Idaho PugRanch said...

Oh the Diamonds fur sure!!

Bailey, Hazel & Greta

Mercy said...

I agree w/the pack - go for the diamonds! The turned up collar looks very preppy. Of course you looks awesome in anything.....or nothing.

Kisses, Kisses,

PS. Someday can you tell us the story of how you ended up in the States when you were born in Dutchland.

Dutch, You look great and I am so happy to hear you get to travel just like Puglet. You will need more than one sweater so just take both and the scarf too!

Go for the hearts!!! It's more flattering with your awesome spots!

Buddy said...

Pink with diamonds!!!

Hugo the Portland Pug said...

Take both! You want to be prepared!

The argile one is super cool.

i also like the diamonds - i like the darker pink colors on you! enjoy your trip and can't wait until you can hijack the blog to tell us all about it!

Those Jersey Shore Puggles said...

If you're coming to New Jersey, you're going to need to wear both sweaters ..... at the same time because it is freezing here, but we think you'll look fabulous in the layered look. You'll need a neck scarf too - like the one in the top picture.

Roxi, Riley & Lea

Anne said...

BOTH! If it's snowing/sleeting one could be wet and you will need a second one while it drys! Take it from MinneSNOWda pugs!

Wear the diamond one because it "pops" against your gorgeous natural coat.

I like the sweater with the hearts- because it matches the heart shaped spot on your BUM!!

Ok so I really do not understand why my comments are being ignored? I am beginning to understand why people are so angry! This is the 3rd time I will ask what is going on the pictures from Miami?????????? Since Amanda is clearly ignoring my these comments does someone anyone know anything. I can't believe Amanda would take time to chit chat as the dogs but not answer a simple question?!!! Really hard to be patient when questions are ignored!!!!!!!!!

Unknown said...

I like the pink with diamonds. You should have told Pug that if you weren't wearing a sweater, then you would be naked too! Either way, I think you're okay though.

Linda said...


I just moved 2/3 of the way to the Eat Coast from Oregon and I can tell you it is COLD here! If it's this cold only going part of the way, I hope you can talk the thumbs into taking more than one sweater.
If you have to choose, though, you must go with the Diamonds. The all-over pink looks so nice against your coat!

Wear the pink sweater...take both and make a fashion statement....

Don't let Pug get to you...he's just jealous!

Have a safe, but fun, time!!

You have fun! Take both sweaters and that way you will be prepared!
You will have to tell us all about your trip when you get back!

I agree with the Miami poster. This is so frustrating to be cut out of the loop. Just a curtesy email. We paid our deposit over 1 year ago, had a photo shoot in Mpls in May and was told that we would receive a link to our proofs in about 3 weeks. I have emailed Amanda several times with no response. It makes me angry to see all the cute pictures of Puglet and Dutch and the blog, but there is no time for an email/update. Please Amanda throw us a bone!!

Spencer Woo said...

Yes the diamond one! It looks great with your spots and offsets your white nicely. And maybe bring a neck sweater too. And some boots. I hope you have lots of fun and noms!

Love, Spencer-Woo
