Corbin needs Juju

Hi Eh-furry-puggy and non-puggy,
My FURiend Corbin is ailing and in hospital. He needs a whole lotta 
to help him through this.

I just asked Professor Doofensmirchtz from Phineas and Ferb to come up with some sort of Get-Well-Inator to help Corbin quickly recover.
I figured it couldn't hurt.

This is for Puglet's Human and her suddenly over-sized hand . . . .


Seriously, though, everyone please send all your good thoughts, prayers, Juju, energy and whatever COSMIC COLLIDER you believe to Amanda of 1000Pugs and The Daily Puglet so her magical hands that take magical pictures will heal quickly.

Wordless Wednesday

The Cat contest will run through the week with a winner announced on Monday, January 30, 2012

Don't I look positively ANGELIC in this photo? 

I have hijacked the blog from my sisteroid, Noodles the Pug to bring you a very important Public Service Announcement:


It is true! She writes about - DOGS
She has contests that are mostly won by - DOGS
She is - A DOG!!!!

It isn't that she does not like CATS. She is actually pretty good to me 99999999999999999999.9% of the time. But Enough is Enough and I just HAD to step in and say my PEACE.

This Contest is for CATS ONLY. (I have been asked to inform you, not my idea mind you, that the REASON the contest is for CATS ONLY is because we only have 1 prize and it is a CATS ONLY prize).

So what to do, what to do. . . YAWN . . . this sliver of sunlight on the chair is making me sleepy . . . YAWN!

I know! JUST leave me a comment and I will RANDOMIZE all comments to find a winner. YAY! This is gonna be fun.

I leave it in your hands. I CANNOT ignore this ray of SUN any longer.

Gung Hay Fat Choy

That is American for Happy Chinese New Year. Today marks the first day of the Year of the Water Dragon.

I choose to celebrate my inner Chinese, as you all know PUGS are originally from China . . . as is Mommy #1. I am going to celebrate the RIGHT WAY with a little rice, a little chicken and a little PUGness.

1000Pugs - Putting My Money Where My Mouth Is. . .

I am dreaming of the day I can be ONE of the 1000. . .

No, we have not signed up yet for a date with Puglet's Human, Amanda. We are working with her on locating the bestest spot ever.

In the meantime, however, we joined the GROWING ranks of supporters by donating via Kickstarter.

So what if it is GRAY and RAINY today - We feel better already.

Thoughts for Thursday

Over there, Over there
I am sure I was just
Over there

But now I'm here 
It is clear
Over here

MLK Day with Mommy

First we sat on the couch and watched chick flicks. I love chick flicks and it was nice to sit with Mommy on what is usually a SCHOOL DAY.
What the Pug is wrong with my face? I look like I had one liver martini too many!

Then we played outside in the sun. It was a great looking day, not too hot and not too cold. The yard isn't as green and full as it is in the Spring, but I still like it.

Finally Mommy gave me a PEDICURE and painted my nails PURPLE to match hers. Normally I am a PINK kinda gal, but I think I totally rocked the purple.

Martin Luther King Jr spoke about his DREAM of one day enjoying racial equality and harmony. I am all for that . . . but my DREAM is to have another day like this one
MAYBE next time BOTH of my Mommys will be home.

Mommy you have used this pic 100000000000000 times. If you stayed home with me you could have taken a NEW one!

Mommy #2 went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium without me. She said it was so fantastic and she loved all of the different sections so much. Plus it was perfect weather - sunny and warm but with a sweet breeze. She went with Auntie B. I am so shocked they went without me, though, so I made sure I made Mommy PAY FOR IT when she got home. Oh, nothing too bad, just a little Stink Butting, Glasses Snotting (Mommy #2 wears glasses), and WORLD-CLASS farting. I wanted her to know EXACTLY how I felt being left behind.

Mommy tried to defend herself by saying she THOUGHT of me a lot. Especially when she saw this.

Photo by Auntie B

She said it looked like my BELLY after dinner.

Not too happy about HER behavior lately.

Mommy! You Are SO Busted

I am sorry to admit it but I TRUSTED my Mommy #2 a LITTLE TOO MUCH!

Why Noodles, do you ask?

I left HER in charge of my blog post yesterday AND WHAT DOES SHE DO? SHE REPOSTED!!!!
Okay, maybe not totally REPOSTED but close.
I did my research and almost 1 year ago EXACTLY I posted "I Got Ears But I'm Not Listening."
Close, huh???? Okay one is listening one isn't. . . Blah, Blah, Blah. Gotta do better than that Lady.

So I am taking BACK MY BLOG.

Don't know how I will overcome the lack of thumbs thing. . . but I noticed my Mommy #2 doesn't use her thumbs to type ANYHOW! So I think I totally have this under control.
Next obstacle - the camera.
She has been, ahem, recycling old photos as well.

These Ears Are for Listenin'

One ear has a flip, one had a fold
I got one from my grandpa, so I am told

 I pull them back when I am playin'
Bring them forward to hear all you're sayin'

Lift one and I am zeroed in
Liftin' them both's a sign of chagrin

They add a lot to my overall cuteness
And are responsible for my listenin' acuteness

Retelling a Tale of Retail Re-Tail

(for Frank the Tank)

This is a retelling of a tail tale that I usually reserve for the CAMPFIRE. But there is no campfire so I COLORIZED my photo to look like one.
Once upon a time not so long ago . . . 
hmmmmmm . . . That is kinda trite, isn't it . . . Well, in any case it was NOT yesterday, or the day before, or even the day before that. . . I was sitting all alone in a ray of SUNSHINE ( by THAT I mean Ol' Sol not THE CAT) when all of a sudden I felt a twinge in my, UMMMMM, hind region. What, I SQUEAKED QUITE LOUDLY, is going on with my BEAUTIFUL curly tail? Then it happened AGAIN only this time the twinge became a THROB! I tried to take a look but being a PUG with limited flexibility in the waist, I couldn't see too much more than my rather adorable LEG. So I ran to Auntie T's room because she has a full length mirror and I just KNEW I could see what was going on BELOW MY HINEY WRINKLE!!!

 OMD!!! What did my LARGE LIQUIDY EYES see but a DOUBLE Hiney wrinkle where my UBER CURLY tail usually resides! What to do, what to do? I mean . . . I, Noodles the Pug CANNOT be without my AWARD WINNING (Pugoween 2011 Curliest Tail winner) curly tail!!!!!

So I went to the MALL because I know you can find ANYTHING and EVERYTHING at the mall. PLUS we all know the mall is filled with RETAIL businesses. Store after store it was the same story . . . "No we have no CURLY tails here . . .  check #####!" I was quite distressed. Here  it was the HOLIDAZE and I needed to find a CURLY tail STAT! There were straight tails, nubbins, and really fuzzy tails like the one worn by Sunshine the Cat. But no DOUBLE WHORL such as I had before. Even SANDY PAWS said HO HO HO when I asked him about a new tail - then he sent me on my way.

Dejected and depressed I LEFT THE MALL and wandered down to our neighborhood RETAIL store. I figured they should at least have a semi curly TAIL that I could have temporarily. Hours went by and I could not find ANYTHING at all resembling a tail. Maybe I am exaggerating just a little. It was not hours - it was just minutes but . . . you know how TIME slows down when you are stressed and a minute seems like an HOUR . . . and an HOUR can seem like days but is really only 60 minutes? 

Why oh why is there to TAIL to be found in RETAIL, I wailed! I need desperately to be RE-TAILED and despite all the TALES I hear, NO one has a TAIL for me!!!
WHY oh WHY oh WHY . . . I cried and cried kicking my legs furiously in my frustration.

Suddenly I felt a JOLT and a JIGGLE and there was SUNSHINE THE CAT giving me a WIGGLE! "Noodles oh Noodles!" she said. "You must be having a really scary DAYmare . . . WAKE UP!"

Groggily I stood up. "Wha' you say?" I stammered at Sunshine the Cat. Then it dawned on me what she was saying so I tried to reach my HINEY and ended up falling down from the circles I ran. When I UN-dizzied, I ran to Auntie T's room and looked in her mirror . . .

It was BACK!!!!!

Just ANOTHER cute picture of ME
I know, I know. I have been noticeably absent from the Blog scene lately. Other than retail, and by that I mean working in a store and not an adventure involving a new TAIL, I have no good excuses.
But here it is, 2012, the start of a NEW YEAR and I am ready to spread my thoughts far and wide, kinda like I do with my bidness ONLY Mommy does not have to pick it up all the time . . .

I am sorry, I rambled a little.

For now let it suffice that I will be a more OVERT and formidable presence in BLOGVILLE from here on out.

CAVE CANEM (doggie beware!)
