Catch up? Catsup? Ketchup?

Yikes. Just a tip to anyone who has a reader in the family (you know who you are)-- don't give them the Twilight books. They'll disappear like, forever. That's what happened to Dad these past few weeks. Sure, he made up some excuse about needing to be up on the current "hip" things that the kids he'll be counseling are into, and he mentioned something else about two different 20-page papers he's been researching for his classes, and I think he tried to pawn off some lame excuse about final exams, but I know the real reason.

He's bored with me. *Sigh*

I'll just have to up the cute factor. Think this'll do it?

I thought so. Sweet!

Of course, the other reason is that Dad is a slacker. Always has been, always will be. According to him, he was even born late. So, remember that award I won (it seems like) years ago? Where I won the Project Dogway final and promised to show pictures of my swag when it came in? Well, it's in. It's been in. And I've already loved it all. But just to prove it, here are the pics!

I got the coolest wrapping paper ever,

A little friend to hang on the Christmas tree (although he looks like he's got the measles or mumps or something. V - E - T time for him, I say),

A totally delicious bag of treats,

and a fantastically fuzzy blue (my favie!) chew toy.

Am I a lucky pug or what? I also, even though Dad was on hiatus and refused to help me with the blogging thing, raked in some awards. Sweet!

I got the I Love Your Blog award from my Florida friends Samantha and Mr. Tigger:

And I got the Lemonade Stand award from both Sandra and Pearl and Daisy!

The Lemonade Stand award is given to bloggers who show attitude/gratitude, so I will say thank you with attitude to cover all bases:


As for passing on the love, well, I'm about ten years too late in actually receiving these awards and if you'll remember from last time picking and choosing the "pass it on" recipients kinda gives me the willies. So, I'm taking the easy way out and saying that everyone is awesome and both deserves and gets these awards. Hooray for you!

Is that it? Am I caught up? Whew!


Big-time visitors coming down soon. All Christmas week I get to schmooze with both sides of my human family, so look for lots of pictures and whatever small number of posts I can squeeze in between head scratches and family love-ins.

Welcome back! I liked the Twilight books but I didn't think that they were SUPER awesome or anything. I liked the HP series better.

Gee! What a lucky pug! I can´t let Meilin see all that or she will get jealous... Merry Christmas to you!

Sandra y Coco said...

Merry Christmas!

Puddleglum, you are so NOT glum in your "up the cute factor" photo! I think your dad couldn't POSSIBLY be bored after seeing you like that! Merry Christmas to you!

Oh, yeah, we know all about the Twilight thing. Besides reading the books and seeing the movie, Mommy has been listening to the soundtrack like ALL THE TIME.

And there's NO WAY your dad could be bored with you after giving him what like to call "cute face".

Pug love from,
Pearl & Daisy
