Treats? Yes, please!

Hey there all you lovely-looking Pug Slopers!

Sid here today. I really hope you all had a great Halloween and hauled in loads of treats. I sure did!

I forgot to mention that the weekend BEFORE Halloween, I got to attend a HOWL-O-WEEN pet parade and costume contest just up the street from the Pug Slope H.Q. It was pretty awesome.

As you guys already know by now, I was dressed up as “Bruce Pugsteen” this year. I was getting the thumbs up from all the people gathered there for the parade. I mean, check this out:

“Sit tight, take hold, Thunder Rooooad!”

I’ve got pipes, what can I say.

Anywho, there were tons of pooches and humans in really cool costumes. There was a Boston with THREE HEADS!!!

Does that mean he gets THREE DINNERS each day?! I sure hope so. He was getting double-takes from both humans and other dogs. There was also a dog elaborately dressed up as a Bonsai tree.

I ran into another pug who, along with her friend, was dressed up like a Mariachi! Ole! I have no idea how their hats stayed on all day. Superglue perhaps.

Although I didn’t win any prizes during the contest portion, I had a fun time parading around with the other costumed pups and collecting free treats all day. I gotta start planning my costume for next year…

The Boss

Sid, I mean “Bruce Pugsteen”, wants me to remind you that you can double-click this image to enlarge it. You know, in case you want a poster-sized version to hang up in your bedroom.

Hope you all have a fantastic Halloween! Per Sid, make sure you opt for “TREAT” rather than “TRICK”!

Too Tired for Style

My Dad got me some new bandanas which, while they are pretty cool, are not really get-out-of-bed worthy. Yet he insisted on doing a photo shoot.

I put in about 8% effort – I mean, at least my eyes were open.

I don’t know if was due to the fact that there were no treats on deck or due to the news that we are due for another pummeling by the Polar Vortex but the super-model juices were just not flowing today.

Ever feel this way, my friends?

P.S. My Pops wants to know which bandana you like better – the yellow one or the black one? I think the black one makes me look tough – which I am, obviously. Just because one of my favorite toys is a mini purse doesn’t mean…well…um, oh forget it.

P.P.S. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!!

Hallowhere’s Ma Treatz?

Halloween is just a big tease. Humans everywhere, especially the tiny ones that poke at your eyes and try to grab your tail are practically DROWNING in treats. But what have I got? Just a photo of myself in a costume that’s a bit too snug in certain areas (memo to self: have Dad let out waist of Halloween costume).

My Dad brought home this gigantic bag of Monster Munch. I mean the stuff sounds amazing, right? Plus it’s made of potatoes which I’m pretty sure I can eat. However, he ate the ENTIRE BAG HIMSELF! I didn’t get to try even ONE FLIPPIN’ MUNCH!

This is outrageous.

Since it’s been raining all day today, I thought it’d be the perfect day to stage a Poop Strike. What’s a Poop Strike you ask? Oh, why it’s only the BEST WAY TO GET BACK AT YOUR HUMAN FOR SWINDLING YOU OUT OF YOUR FAIR SHARE OF MONSTER MUNCH. I’m going to make sure it’s raining hard when we go out for our evening walk. And then we’ll walk and walk and walk some more. By this point my Dad will be SOAKED TO THE BONE. And guess what I’m NOT going to do? Yep. Poop. It’s the sure way to drive a human bonkers. If any of you other pugs out there got the shaft this Halloween I suggest you do the same. And if you DID get TONS OF TREATS, maybe you could, you know, mail me some? Pretty please?

Wordless Wednesday: Capsized Edition

A Pop of Color?

I thought the cooler fall weather was what prompted Sid to wear a scarf the other day, but he said it was to add a “pop of color” to his harness.

He’s been watching a lot of What Not To Wear reruns and I think Stacy and Clinton have been putting ideas into his little pug brain.

Are any of you wearing scarves to stay warm this fall? Or just to add a pop of color?

P.S. If you haven’t had a chance to sign the petition to allow pets in carriers aboard Metra trains, please consider signing this weekend. Thank you for your support and have a wonderful weekend!

Wordless Wednesday: Bunnies & Bow Ties

(Thank you to my talented sister who handmade the bunny bow tie for Sid. She also was the one who made him the crocheted Easter egg toy.)
