It's Solid GOLD so Why Aren't My Poops?

See? Right there on the bag? It says SOLID GOLD and that's what I have been eating for a whole month now - SOLID GOLD. So, why aren't my poops solid gold as well? Every day I happily run outside to do my BIDNESS hoping that my little piles will help bring wealth and happiness to my HUMANS. But I am sorry to report that after A WHOLE MONTH of eating this stuff, the only thing left behind is. . . regular old poop. Not the kind you can take to the bank. So WHAT THE? Why am I eating this SOLID GOLD if not to get rich?

I went back into my EMAIL ARCHIVES to read the initial note from Ms. Sydney at CHEWY.COM. See? See? It's right here. . . "Dear Noodles and Molly . . .  interested. . . testing for a month. . . .Solid Gold . . ." Oh........wait.......I see it ......" Solid Gold Buck Wild Venison, Potato & Pumpkin Recipe Grain-Free Adult Dry Dog Food.

That's a whole 'nother story!

It's What I DO

This is what Molly and I do when on the weekends or in the evenings when Mommy #2 is sitting and knitting. We are "helping" her count her stitches. BOL!

It's gonna be a hot one here today and Mommy is working from home. Those are my favorite days because she lets me curl up at her feet while she works. And then, she "commutes" to the sofa after work to relax some before making dinner. 

This is the life, huh?

Walk 'n Wag 2015: Pug 'n' Mop - Humane Society Silicon Valley

Walk 'n Wag 2015: Pug 'n' Mop - Humane Society Silicon Valley

One of These Pugs is NOT Like the Other. . .

 I ENDURED a bath on Sunday with just a modicum of whining. I TOLERATED my snout being wiped and ears being scrubbed with just a little scrunching and pulling away. I MANAGED to maintain my composure while my nails were being dremeled with only a smidge of pulling my paws away.

After a long hiatus, Sunday was SPA day. I was caught a little unawares and was not my usual cooperative self. But really! I was sunning myself and enjoying the freedom of nowhere to go when suddenly I was whisked upstairs and thrown in the bath.

I really didn't think I needed so much being done to me. After all, I am a low maintenance PUG, I think. But something clued MOMMY to my need for scrubbing. "Noodles!" She shouted at me. "You are one STINKY PUG and I need to do something about this!"

Can you tell from these pictures?

Pug #1: Oily, scruffy fur; wild and unkempt coat, stinky snout; long nail; dried scratchy paw pads

Pug #2: Soft, sweet-smelling fur; brushed and furminated coat; sweet snout,ears and teeth; trim nails; lotioned and massaged paw pads.

Looking back at these pix, I guess I see MOMMY'S point. I am almost a whole different color now.

As a reward, I received an AMERICAN JOURNEY Beef Jerky treat! Guess what!?!?!?!? Molly did NOT get one because she DID not endure the sheer torture of nail dremeling.

Have you had some AMERICAN JOURNEY Beef Jerky yet? If not, you gotta try it. You can ONLY find it here - at CHEWY.COM.

Super Summer Sunnin' on a Sunshiney Sunday

Actually it was THURSDAY but that is not nearly as alliterative.

I begged, begged, begged and begged some more to go outside. Mommy was getting a little worried because she thought it was a PEE PROBLEM.

Then she happened to look out the dining room window and spied me - sunnin' in my FAV-O-RITE spot. It is the best place because although sheltered, it catches the nicest breeze now and then. Don't wanna overheat, you know.

And the weather was just perfect. Warm but not the blistering hot of just a couple of days before this. And the breeze was the cooling kind kissed by the fog that was hidden just below the mountains to the West.

I couldn't ask for a better way to spend the afternoon. And I did. I spent a lot of time outside just warming my furs. It helps to be away from Molly's frantic barks at every little street sound. I can just relax and commune with nature MY WAY and in my own TIME.

Mom's Lost It!

Mommy #2 said she posted for today. "That's hilarious, Mommy," I said; "Because I happen to know you did NOT post ANYTHING today. You barely posted something YESTERDAY!!!!"

Of course she totally denied this ever being true and so she went online to PROVE it to me that she had posted SOMETHING!

"I don't know about you, BUT I do NOT see A Bowl of Noodles anywhere in this BLOG ROLL," I told HER.

So she was all outta kilter after that revelation and said she had nothing prepared! "It's okay," I said. "I will take over today as I am totally capable of doing the blog POST now that I am SIX years old.

----- So I am -----
