Hey there Slopers – it’s me Sid today.

I hope you  all are staying warm and cozy. It’s been so dang cold here that I wish my dad would just buy some of those wee-wee pads so I can stay inside until Spring.


So I read on the internet that we’re supposed to leave cookies out for Santa to provide him the stamina required to deliver all those millions of presents and treats to humans and pugs around the world. So I asked my Dad to set out some cookies and almond milk (I also read Santa is lactose intolerant).


But I couldn’t help staring at the cookies; they were calling out to me. “Sid! Sid! We’re so tasty and filled with PEANUT BUTTER! Please eat us!”

It was UNBEARABLE to have them just sitting there, mere inches from my muzzle.

Then my little pug brain started thinking, with all the other BILLIONS of pugs and humans on planet Earth, doesn’t Santa get all the cookies he needs? Surely he’s not going to miss a few small Nutter Butters, right?

I thought perhaps my Dad would agree with my logic but he insisted that I could not eat any of the cookies. Being the persistant pug I am, I respectfully bowed down (you know, like you’re taught in gentle-pug finishing school) and dipped my head as low as it would go and repeated my plea.

But still my Dad denied me the cookies.

Humbug! Oh, well. I’m sure I’ll get lots of cookies later tonight and tomorrow. It’s just so hard to BE PATIENT when you’re a pug!

    Dear Sid, you are so right, patience is not one of our strong suits. But we are sure that this is the night to try really hard, and it should pay off with lots of treats and toys for good little boys! We actually warmed up for one day (38) but woke up to icy snow this morning.
    Have a wonderful Christmas Sid and Dad
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Greta

    Merry Christmas Eve to Sid and Brian! Did I tell you Angel Stella’s momma has a new rescue Puggie Puppy named Walter? We are so excited for her:) My pawrents are going to meet him in BK soon! Try to stay warm and hope Santa brings you lots of eatables and new stuffies…

    Hi Sid,
    Did you get some toys from Santa? Were you able to save one cookie for Santa?

    Oh man, bummer. I don’t think Santa would have cared but then again maybe you wouldn’t have had such a great Christmas. One of life’s mysteries, I guess. 😉
