Doing My Best on Tongue Out Tuesday

Humom has tried a zillion times to get a good photo of me with my tongue out. It isn't like it is NEVER out. I yawn and the tongue appears. I lap my food and it is all in the tongue. I sit in my bed and I LICK FOR AN HOUR and my tongue appears then. BUT none of these times are photograph-able because my tongue is always in motion. That is why it is a but fuzzy in the pic above.

I happen to have a very cute little tongue that I can roll into a flower sort of shape. It is really cute, if I say so myself. So I went through my ARCHIVES to see if there are other photos of my generally ubiquitous tongue.

Here's one from 2017. It was HOT and I was sitting
for a treat

2018 - Yawning is the best way to see my tongue

And that is about it. See the flower shape, though?

These represent all the pix Mommy could find. And this is going back 3 years of my 10. But beggers can't be choosers.

Happy Tongue Out Tuesday Everypuggy

I Am So Excited to Be BACK!

I'm so excited to be back

Oh my, oh MY! It has been so very long since I chatted with you all! In fact, it was around my BIRTHDAY when my computer CRASHED. It is finally fixed and Mommy and I have been spending a lot of time resetting it and getting all of the files back. It has been quite a trial, I tell you. And Mommy STILL cannot get her password file to open. Given her memory these days, it is a problem.

But I am back and I am going to make it my NEW MISSION to keep up with my posts.

It has been a crazy Summer, you all. It has mostly been unseasonable cool, which is weird. And the last week some extreme heat blew through. Then this week it is cool again. I never know what to expect when I walk out the door. Maybe that is a good thing because it keeps me on my toes. But HEY HIDDEE HO! It is confusing. I never have the right FURS on.

So what else is new. . . Oh yeah, Mommy #2 abandoned me. Yes she did. For almost a whole week. She decided she needed to escape to the sea shore and the place she was staying does not allow PUGS! Okay, okay. Not just pugs. Mommy wasn't allowed to go either. It made me really really sad but I at least had Mommy #1 to cuddle with and that is a BIG TREAT for me. I cherish all the time I have with her because in September she returns for her final year at university. That is going to be a long time without her.

Finally I need to get something off my pug chest which is making me really really sad today. It is the shooting on Sunday in Gilroy, CA. It is very very close to home and in a place one just does not expect these things to happen. But you know what? These things are happening, and they are happening everywhere. No place is immune. . . no place is safe. Not completely, anyhow. And it makes my heart hurt. I don't understand why humans do these things. What is so bad about letting other people live their best life even if yours is not so good? Why does anger lead to such an uncontrolled outburst. And why do people think guns are the answers to things they don't like? A gun is dangerous and the outcome is almost always permanent (for someone). I don't want to make this political because it isn't a political issue really. It is a HEART HURT issue.

I Have a Computerache!

I realize I have been missing in action since before the Fourth of July, which we all know was MY BIRTHDAY. It was great, thanks for all the well wishes! Well, the reason for my absence is our computer, the lifeblood of my blog, went BELLY UP! It just quit working and we don't get know why. So Mommy is trying to GET something out to you all via her Kindle Fire. It is slow going compared to typing on a full keyboard. Not only that, but all of the BIRTHDAY pix are still residing in phones, cameras, and in emails and this Fire does not have the memory to down!glad them. So while the Roomba roads in the distance, I decided to do a quick update for you to let you know

I'm STILL here
I'm still your NUMBER ONE fan

SPICY But Mild

I Got your attention, didn't I? I notice when someone says S-P-I-C-Y that folks ears' perk up and they pay more attention. Maybe it is that prurient delight received when somepuggy else burns their tongue on very SPICY food? I dunno. I am simply playing with you because I am gonna talk weather with you.

I know some of my peeps are sweltering in unbearably HOT weather like it was here a month ago. And I also know some peeps have had RAIN and even some COLD weather (like that weird hail storm in Guadalajara, Mexico). I feel for you, I really really do. But I gotta say, my NORCAL weather is nothing short of perfect these past 3-4 weeks. Mommy #1 says it reminds her a lot of her childhood when the weather was a little cooler and they would MAYBE have a heatwave once or twice in late August or mid September. And that "heatwave" was with temperatures in the NINETIES and not the triple digits of my lifetime.

Back then Summer days were high seventies with cool sea breezes in the afternoons as the fog moved into the coastal areas. And THAT is exactly the kind weather we have been having in June and now July. And I gotta say . . . it is so wonderful for me, a PUG. I can go outside any time of the day and it is comfortable for me to wander around and take in the smells. I am not panting a lot even in AC like I do on really HOT days. So I really just wanted to BRAG about that. Is it wrong? Am I creating wicked KARMA for myself bragging when I know you all are SUFFERING?

I can't help it.

I just think I am ONE LUCKY PUGGY.

Welcome New FURiends and We Had a Photo Session!

Hello FURiends. I have lately noticed a small up-ticking in my FURiends List. It has been a while since this has happened and I gotta say, I am jumping for JOY because of it. You see, I love BLOGVILLE and the community it has grown. It has been very distressing to see my followers numbers tick down (mostly due to Blogger shenanigans) or stay stagnant. WHY DOES THIS BOTHER ME?

Because, I loves loves loves my followers and FURiends. So thank you all for following me. And if I don't often comment on your blogs, please forgive my MOMMY. It is all her fault for prioritizing her JOB over her PUG. As if there really should be a choice.

Anyhow, on Lulu's LAST day at Casa de Noodles my Cousin E decided to take some photos of us. I loves when she does this because (1) I am so cute and (2) she ENCOURAGES us with ample treats. I will literally do anything for a treat. So she took us outback because she says OUTSIDE has the best light. And right now, our yard is filled with so much beauty from the flowers to the garden to the fruit trees. . . it is perfect and this is the proof

Noodles "Lady Liberty"



Didn't she CAPTURE us completely? I mean, could I look MORE GORGEOUS or Molly more angelic? And Lulu really beams in her photo. Good job Cousin E.
