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. . .)

I'm sure the 1000 pugs book wil be fantastic - it has been great seeing pictures of so many cute puggies posing for her! It sure is a huge undertaking for one person! (well, one person, one pug and one pink-loving big dog) I don't have a pug but I did donate to the Kickstart campaign and I know eventually she'll take care of that, too (the tee shirt should be really cool). I know everything will take a while, but that's okay as long as it's all done right, and as long as she takes care of herself and Pug and Dutch. :)
