Late Night with Salinger The Pug

Ok...it's Friday night around 11:30 PM. The neighborhood is quiet, most neighbors have dark houses by now and mom is up waiting for dad to get home from his business trip. I found something interesting on the deck and stood there for twenty minutes with a face like this...

Mom decided to come out and see what had me so fascinated...

A big, gross, beetle-y looking BUG! Mom isn't a huge fan of bugs (especially big ones like this) but she could see that I was interested, so she wanted to see what would happen, so she turned the camera to "video"....



I told mom there are three important things she could take from this experience:

1. She REALLY needs to restain the deck
2. This may explain why our neighbors don't seem to like us
3. Mom needs to put on her big girl panties and get over it...it's just a BUG (probably dead anyway).

Sheesh!

Have a good weekend everyone! Watch out for BUGS!!!

Fuji is sleeping on the back of the chair. I thought she would wake up if I turned the volume up and heard Salinger barking. No such luck, didn't even phase her or the others! Cute video!

You are sooo funny! Cracked us up. My mom would be worried that I would eat it or something- then I would have bugs on my lips when she kissed me and she would not like that!

Salinger - your mom cracks me up! I can't believe how afraid of bugs she is. I love bugs just like you do and my mom isn't afraid of them either. She usually doesn't kill them if she finds them in the house. She simply escorts them outside to be in their natural setting. What a weirdo, huh?

S-dog! That was so funny! Isn't it strange how those bugs look like something that would be good to eat, but once you get it in your mouth they're pretty icky? Our Mommy is always telling us to kill bugs for her. No, we just find them for HER to kill :-)
Pug hugs and kisses!

Salinger, Salinger, Salinger...don't you know that you're supposed to be quiet at night? If my puppies barked like crazy at 11:00 at night, my neighbors would call the cops.

Sal, buddy.......I better not show this to my mom. You know what a big Beetle fan she is!

Hey Salinger,
My little sisters are fascinated by bugs too, and they usually eat them. Then they throw them back up again. Gah-ross.
C-ya,

p.s. we need to restain our deck soon too.

Hi there Salinger! We love bugs. They are so much fun to chase, and bark at...but we don't eat 'em, cause mom say's they have germs. Speaking of mom...she's okay with bugs, but if she see's a snake - cover your ears, cause she'll scream at the top of her lungs!!!

I am very thankful that Bailey does not have your joy of bugs, Salinger. Like your Mom, I don't like them! But I'm glad they give you pleasure.

Kristi said...

Hey, that's better than what I saw scamper across our counter last night- a fraking MOUSE! GAH!!!!

Nevis said...

Your Mom is lucky it wasn't a dead possoum like Norman's woman had to deal with!

BOL. Your Mom is so funny! It cracks me up how she reacts to things. My Mommy hates beetle like bugs too. I don't understand...they taste yummy.
