Ok, so I really wanted to tell you about the cliff today. For one, it's the most exciting thing that happened since my last post last year. Dutch also says it's the perfect metaphor for 2013. 

Huh what? Metaphor? Since when is Dutch the smart one?? 

But before I get to the thing about me and the cliff, there are two or three other things I need to say first... 

Thing #1
When I came back last week, I didn't think anyone would still be here. I mean, it's been sooo long - I wasn't even sure if the internet would still be here. My human said some dude named Al Gore would never let anything like that happen to his baby (no idea) and Dutch thought I was totally dumb for thinking you would leave me. But a lot can change in nearly-an-eternity. Right?


Wrong. You're still here, awesome as ever. And even though I usually HATE being wrong, being right totally would have sucked. Because even though I hardly ever remember to say it: you make our world a waaay better place and we love all you like bacon. Except for my human who thinks bacon is gross. I guess she loves you like... broccoli? 


Thing #2
I know the entire planet (including Al Gore and his internet) is wondering what the heck is up with the Other 999 pugs. Rumor has it my human ran off to the Caribbean with everybody's money. I guess that totally could have happened. But trust me, that is sooo not where we've been. 

I'll let my human fill you in on the details, but you pretty much already know most of what you need to know: life doesn't always go as planned and sometimes things can go very wrong. And when it all goes down like a firey plane crash, you just need to do what the airplane lady says and put your own goofy oxygen mask thingy on first because if you stop breathing, you'll be too dead to to do anything else and everyone will end up dying. 

Uhm, metaphorically speaking. Take that, smartypants Dutch!

So yeah. We're all still breathing and the Other 999 is still alive. HAL4 never woke up, but HAL5 is mostly plugged in and as soon as my human untangles all the passwords (and stops swearing at windows 8) an official update will go out to everyone. 

Thing #3
If you live in the middle or on the other coast, don't go licking any flagpoles until the weather gets warmer. No idea why anyone would want to lick a flagpole, but the NPR radioman just told us about some girl in New Hampshire who licked one and "ended up stuck for more than 15 minutes while her parents desperately tried to help her". 


So if it's freezing cold where you are, please be careful and try to stay warm. Maybe ask guilt your human into some extra cookies for making you wear a sweater. Oh, and don't worry about peeing on poles. Pretty sure that's still OK. 

See you tomorrow!

Life without Puglet, Dutch and Amanda is unthinkable. I looked everyday until you came back. We knew you would come back!!!

Pearl and Tessa said...

Puglet, we never doubted you or Amanda or Dutch. We have been sending lots and lots of Juju, as I am sure others have, and it looks like it worked. Anything, anything we can do to help Amanda let us know!

Welcome back Puglet, Dutch and Amanda! We need you! We hope you saw us on FB begging you to come back!!


Beatrix's Mom said...

So very glad you're back, Puglet!! We've missed you.

As for those who thought your Amanda ran off with the Other 999's money, that's just absurd. Those people are nuts, although my mom tells me I've got to learn to be nicer to idiots. She said it's not their fault they have the brains of a cheese sandwich.

Welcome back!

Welcome back Amanda, Puglet and Dutch! All of us are glad things are getting better for all of you.

YEAHHHHHHHHH!!! so so so so so happy you are back! All is right with the world (minus the crazy cold temps)

Laura Bee said...


I am so excited to have you back. I thought of you last night when I ate some of my Mom's Christmas chocolate and totally freaked her out. It reminded me of a story you might tell about your own adventures. And now here you are.

Maybe I should eat chocolate more often.

It is so great to see this blog back in action. Makes me look forward to sitting down with my cup of coffee and reading the latest adventures. :)

Puglet, anyone that has met your mom should know better about her running off to the Caribbean. Our mom knows. The super pale people cannot spend that much time in the sun. They melt or something.
Life happens, and sometimes it truly stinks. You have to deal with it the best way you can. It may take longer than some people might want, but that's how it goes. Sometimes, things cannot be rushed. It's like if you break a bone. Just because you want it to, the bone doesn't heal overnight. It takes time.
We're just glad you are ok.

Holden (Other Pug #631) says his humans were just in the Caribbean and didn't see you nor any pugs there (but wish they had!). So glad to see you, Dutch, and Amanda are back!

Heather said...

So, so glad you are back!! Missed your blog a ton Puglet!

Sammy and Neko said...

I never had any doubts about you, OR your mom having your heart in the right place, Puglet!

Pug Slope said...

So glad to heave you all back! I hope you didn't try to jump off the cliff in pursuit of some cow pies or something.

We were rooting for you guys the whole time you were gone. Looking forward to hearing more your fantastic adventures!

I checked every day for a while until I realized I usually get a notice the day after you post; however, I still have your icon on my desktop, so checked in occasionally.

Glad HAL5 is up and running, but most importantly, hope your human is doing well.

Ashley and Emma said...

Sorry Gnat said...

Dear Puglet, please go to your human and announce in large letters, "WE'RE GLAD YOU ARE BACK."

Now, both of you, 3 of you, or you and the entire world; your mission for the day is "cavort with joy."

Puglet, Our mom just recently found your blog. We love reading about you and Dutch and your mom. We love bacon, too, but then our parents haven't found anything we don't like! LOL Look forward to reading about your escapades (that's for you, Dutch) in 2014! Pugs and kisses, Bugsy and M
