Once Upon a Time



Once upon a time there was a PRINCESS PUG named Noodles. She was a happy pug who generally got everything she ever wanted. Her MOST prized possession, though was her beloved Sock Monkey Bed. She never slept anywhere other than SM.

One day a new Princess arrived. Her name was Molly and she was DECIDEDLY NOT a Pug. But she was cute and fluffy and everyone laughed at her beguiling way of high-stepping when she walked. She took ONE look at Noodles' Sock Monkey Bed and it was LOVE at first sight.

Luckily for Noodles she had found a NEW bed to love.

Excuse Me Auntie B. . . But

Can I borrow your THUMBS for a bit?

This was my post for Wordless Wednesday. I couldn't post it because I AGAIN ran out of photo space. That really got my hackles raised, I tell you.

It is all better now.

A Dance and A Trip - ALL Without ME

This is the PATHETIC look I put on when Mommy #2
left me at Auntie B's

So my absence began about 9 days ago when the weekend for Mommy #1's ballet performance finally came around. She actually only performed on Sunday of that weekend; but before that there were sets to build, costumes to alter, dances to rehearse and lighting to set. It was a lot of work. Both of my mommys left early in the morning and did not return until LATE. I had almost NO SNUGGLES from them. Molly and my other cousins kept me company and made sure I had food and water.

The show was a success and Mommy #1 danced well, from what I was told. All I know is that MONDAY I had both of my Mommys home! We snuggled on the couches all day and into the night.

The next day Mommy #2 stayed home from work ONLY ALL SHE DID WAS WORK!!!! She cleaned the WHOLE HOUSE SPOTLESS!!! Then she did a lot of laundry, took out suitcases, packed up my bed!!! Something was afoot and I KNEW IT.

Sometime in the late afternoon Mommy #2 and I took a drive to my Auntie B's house. I love Auntie B and she loves me. I often stay with her when Mommys are going out of town and cannot take me with them. I RAN into Auntie B's house and sniffed all around the house, like I normally do. There was a strange dog smell and I was a little disturbed to think Auntie B might like ANOTHER DOG! But she assured me it was not her that watched that particular dog. She is MY AUNTIE B - period!

Mommy gave me a huge hug and a kiss goodbye. Then she was gone. I was happy to be at Auntie B's but already missing MY Mommys.

Mea Culpa - Of Having Too Much HOLIDAY




I am SOOOOOO tired from all the fun I had at Auntie B's house. I know I have not posted in like FOREVER but I do not have the stamina to lift a paw.

Tomorrow will be another story as I fill you in on the showcase weekend followed by Thanksgiving.

BTW, I am THANKFUL for all of YOU!!! You rock my world.

In Defense



So I was lollygagging about the Internet, avoiding what I should REALLY be doing, when what do I see? Someone BLASTING Miss Amanda and the 1000Pugs project.

Well, this got my HACKLES up immediately because NO ONE has the right to COME DOWN on MY Amanda, Puglet, and Dutch. No One.

 Look at the FACTS - JACK (or whatever your name may ACTUALLY BE since I believe you signed your TIRADE "Anonymous")


  • This project is HUGE and no amount of planning could account for the way it SKYROCKETED in popularity and participation
  • Amanda is ONE PERSON even though she writes for Puglet, Dutch, Frank and some other assorted "guest" bloggers
  • Even with help, it is easy to get lost in the sheer volume of papers and promises
  • Amanda wants to do it right - and that means every PUG will look GREAT in the photos; AND keep in mind, the HUNDREDS of shots she takes of each one need to be looked at, categorized, color corrected, and logged
I cannot even begin to imagine how hard it would be to honor obligations for 10 PUGS much less 1000.

SO PLEASE UNDERSTAND that
  1. She is not trying to SCAM anyone
  2. She is not reneging on the INTENT of her project (and getting rich is NOT the intent)
  3. She will eventually deliver all that she promised
  4. THE BOOK WILL BE AMAZING

I LOVE YOU MISS AMANDA (and your awesome treats. . .)

Sweet When Asleep



Molly is one cute kid and I am having trouble adjusting to NOT being the cutest dog in the house. I tell myself she is just a baby; but sometimes I just get so mad.

Not when she is asleep. Then she is an ANGEL and even I have to smile at her.

I have to admit, it is nice to have someone with whom to share.

Me 'n' Molly



Me and Molly are getting along pretty well. We play A LOT which is something I never really did much of before. But we run all over the house and play bitey face.
The other day I admit I got a little rough with Molly. I was irritated because she seemed to be getting a lot more attention from EVERYBODY (except MY Mommy #2) and I didn't like it. Maybe I got up on the wrong side of the kennel. I don't know. We were playing and the next thing I know Molly yelps. Mommy pulled me aside for a time out.
Noodles, she said. You got a little rough there. I don't think you hurt Molly and I don't think she wanted to hurt you. But when you play that rough, someone will always get hurt.
I know, I said. I didn't mean to. . . but Molly WAS picking on me some.
I know, Mommy said. But keep in mind she is a lot smaller than you. Look at her neck! It is as small as your FOREARM! Just keep it in mind when you play.
Okay, I said.
Them Molly and I high-fived and made nice. We sat very calmly for treats, too.
It is a learning thing for both of us.

Doody Duty Thinking



I was outside on Doody Duty (watching my new sister Molly while she did her bidness) yesterday and it got me to thinking. Not about Doody. . .  but about what kind of DOODY we would all be in if we lost the privelege of voting. Yeah, gonna tread the testy waters of politics here.

If we had no say so in what that big HUGE thing called GOVERNMENT did, we would have no freedom to DOODY where we want to . . . get treats when we want them. . . or even LIVE with who we want to.

And that would be no good at all. I am a pampered PRINCESS PUG and I am used to not only EXPRESSING my free will ALL over the place; but also used to having my laundry list of demands met on a continuing basis. MY FREEDOM depends on everyone in the USA's freedom and I do not want to lose it.

So take some time out of your day and VOTE. It doesn't matter who you vote for because at least you are doing the one thing that is important - FREEly choosing who you believe will do the best for this country.

The SOAPBOX is now stored for another 4 years.

OH!!! And tomorrow I PROMISE that Mommy will be back on track and announce the MADLIBS winner (or is it winners????)

My Mommy



Mommy #2 caught the flu.
Our blog writing skills suffer without her able fingers.
We sure hope she is better tomorrow.

Glad THAT'S Over!



I really like Halloween - the PAWties, the costumes, the TREATS. What I DON'T like, though, are the Trick or Treaters that come to our door in a steady stream.

Group after group after group . . . for hours!

Just how much barking is a little pug to do? Oh, and THAT MOLLY - she went Trick or Treating with Lil' One and left ME to DEFEND the homestead!

So today, I am maintaining a LOW PROFILE. It is a good day for minimal activity - kinda cool and kinda rainy. Right now I think I will go back to my Snoopy Bed and lay low.

Molly is not in much better shape.
