New Digs

Hey all friends (furry and non-furry) –

Happy New Year!

Sorry I’ve been a little absent from blogging lately. I’d love to say that I’ve just been spending the days playing with my Wigzi but I have actually been busy unpacking and settling into my new home.

Yep, I’m officially a “Chicagoan” now. So far all I know is that Chicago is freakin’ cold and although there’s lots of cool new stuff to sniff and I live a block away from a HUGE park, the major problem is that I HAVEN’T SEEN ANOTHER PUG YET!!!

What gives?! Am I the only pug in Chicago? I mean, when I was crashing with my grandpugrents, I didn’t see any other pugs either, but that was the ‘burbs where every family has a pack of labradors or golden retrievers or aged yorkies (e.g. my cousin, Elly, who hates me for no reason. Oh right, I did eat all her food. Twice.)

Well, I did meet a few neighborhood non-pug dogs and they actually seemed cool. We did some sniff circles and all was right with the world. Though it’s hard to relate sometimes – I mean, you can’t really talk about how it stinks getting your nose flap cleaned out, or how your tail just isn’t as curly as it used to be…*sigh*.

I think I just need to THINK POSITIVE.

On the plus side, I’ve been told that I might be able to change the name of the blog back to PLANET COOL SID (which is the best name ever, right?) because I don’t live in Park Slope anymore. I think my masthead needs some more carrots, too…my belly could also use a few right about now.

    Hi Sid! Oh there is so much cool pug stuff to do in Chicago even if you don’t see any. Tim and I want to move there sometime, but I think Donald and Daisy would agree with your assessment of the cold…me too for that matter. I say put the carrots in your belly and bring back the seasonal mastheads, but I know those aren’t as “cool” as carrots. Keep rockin’ in Chi-town and I’m sure we will see you soon!

    Brrrr Sid!
    I hope the move is good for you in the long run. I hear there are a lot of PUGS close to Chicago if not actually IN Chi-town.
    I like Planet Cooland it seems much more relevent now.
    Love Noodles

    Sid, you need to reach out on Twitter! We know of at least one pug there. There may be more! We heard there is an annual Pug Crawl where pugs get to go to bars.
    Congratulations on your move and hope you get settled in soon.

    Oh, Man, Sid,
    I can’t believe you moved away, even before we ever met! I figure I’d meet you eventually, if you’re in NY. But WHAT? Chicago? You have to let us know when you visit, so we can finally meet.
    Best of luck in Chicago. And find more Pugs. There ought to be some. NO city is a real city without pugs!

    There are LOTS of pugs in Chicago! We have multiple MeetUp groups, NIPRA (rescue group) and best of ALL: Milwaukee PugFest in May. It’s only about 1 hour north, but last year there were ver 1,000 pugs and their people!! , (1000pugs did a photoshoot the day before too). Please email us directly for the local pug scoop. We’d love to meet you sometime
