Holy Cowpies. It's taking longer to tell you about falling off a cliff than it did to get rescued from it. I don't know about you, but I fell asleep before the dude on the bike came back with the rope. Last time I let Dutch tell a story!

(totally not my idea, by the way)

So, back at the cliff... 

My human's tied to one end of the rope and the other end is tied to everyone else. I don't know any of this because I'm on the side of a freaking cliff and can't see anything but ocean, sky and the side of the cliff. 

Oh. And did I mention that every time I move, the cliff falls apart and I go with it? SO awesome.

By now, I'm pretty sure this might be my first not-near death experience. But just as I'm about to really freak out, I see my human and, uh, "Kim" coming down from the top of the cliff (from where I was it was mostly Kim). 

Now. Remember the thing about the cliff falling apart every time I move? Well imagine how the cliff must feel about my human and Kim. Who are muuuuch bigger and heavier than me, even at my most tubiest. 

Uhm, yeah. Not good.   

As soon as my human touches the side of the cliff, it totally falls apart. She starts sliding, then I start sliding and if it wasn't for the scary rope and the four dudes it was tied to, we probably would have ended up like this:

You can probably guess we didn't fall into the ocean and drown. Dumb Idea #3 didn't exactly go as planned, but the rope didn't break and the four dudes were strong enough to pull us to the top. I got a few cuts on my feet, bits of cliff in my eyeballs, and a cool story about the time I fell off a cliff.

Awesome! \m/

You guys rock!

It's great to have you back.

Chazthepug said...

I just want to say how happy I am that you are all ok! I am also so glad you are back... this has been the greatest way to start the new year, a full week of new DP!

Jazz Girl Pug said...

Whew! Gus and I are really, really happy you and your human are OK. Our Guardian knows about that cliff, and it is wicked steep and crumbly, just like you found out. "Kim" might even have gotten smaller with all the effort it took to get you safely up to solid land!

Noodles said...

(Breathing sigh of relief)
That story had me ON THE EDGE the whole time.
So glad you were rescued and that your human is okay.
Hey FOUR DUDES - thanks for helping rescue them.
Love Noodles

Oh Puglet, I'm so happy you are okay! WOW! What a, er, scary story--but I'm glad it has a happy ending and you (and your human and Dutch) are all fine.

Suki said...

Hi Pug!
Soooo glad everyone is home safe & sound. I think you need extra bacon with bacon sprinkles on top for that adventure!


Ollie said...

What an awesome way to end a Friday!
Your brave human + four cool dudes with a crab pot rope = one safe Puglet
Stay away from heights or at least wear a parachute.

Barbara said...

Man, I wish you had the rescue on video!! Glad you made it!

T,the Pugs and a BT said...

Now that was a story! Pug so glad bike man brought the rope back and the other 3 dudes stuck around to help your Super-human when she needed them. She rocked that one for sure!! Now after reading this to the Pugs and the BT, they understand why I sometimes yell like I do when they get to close to the edge of our cliffs up here in the PNW. You and Dutch stay safe and way back from the edge of those cliffs. :-)

That was really a scary story. Glad it turned out the way it did. Your human is truly a hero. Puglet, you need to be careful and not so adventurous! Take care... looking forward to more stories. -Spencer B

The Devil Dog said...

Wow, I think you should stay in bed with your mom for a week recuperating and you could get all the best dog food treats money can buy to ease your PTSD.
Lucky and I are very glad you are safe and sound now,

Puglet, you had us all scared. What an adventure you lead!

My only adventure included barking fiercely at the Duke Energy Power guy and mailman.

XOXO, Meatball

Very scary! You are like some kind of stunt pug, your human is like a super hero, and Dutch is a great commentator. Glad you are all safe!
