When good Pugs go bad....

Crap...Mom discovered (and put the kibosh on) my dark side! By day, most people only know me as Salinger the worried, adorable, Friend of Dorothy, but when the sun goes down....LOOK OUT....

Here I am on my way out to meet Pugsley at the bar with a fresh pack of Camels, HotDogNeck and a pissy look on my face!


Looks like my "hard living" has caught up with me....I developed a nasty case of Smoker's Cough yesterday (the Vet called it "Kennel Cough"...whatever!) Mom got a video of me hacking up a lung...



SO...now Mom is all yappy and on my Cinnabon about getting me to QUIT!

"Sheeeeeesh!"

She has NO idea how hard it is to be THIS adorable all day....

"Leave me alone, Lady!! We all have our vices!!!"

So now she took my Camels away and is watching me like a hawk and trying to fool me with cheese stuffed with Doxycycline (antibiotic) twice a day and I saw her cutting out a coupon for Nicorette! Looks like the fun is over for now until this Smoker's Cough clears up!

Happy Saturday everone!

***MOM'S NOTE*** Ok...everyone CHILL....those were CANDY cigs in his mouth (the kind that puff...he even ATE it afterward!) and the box of Camels was empty and came from our friend, Rob. Salinger REALLY was diagnosed with Kennel Cough yesterday, but the Vet said that he'll be fine and that it's very similar to the human cold and can be picked up from just airborne particles. YES, he's had the Bortadella vaccine, but she explained that there are many strains of it and the vaccine can't prevent them all. He seems fine...just a bit sleepy and honky and doesn't have much of an appetite, but we'll keep you posted with his recovery!

Hm, dude, sleepy and honky your mom says? Why's she making you sound like a tired duck?? You may come across as one tough dude, Sal, but I's knows better! You're a real softie! Hopes you gets better real quick. In the meantime, take advantage of all the attention and noms you're likely to get!! (and what do you mean you're not hungry???)

Malissa said...

Sexy Sal! I must say you are looking very butch! Sorry about the kennel cough. Let your peeps spoil you little dude, milk that sickness for all its worth!

To Sals Mommy-- Of all the mommy's, you hardly need to explain your posts. I thought my boys were spoiled and loved but they have nothing on you! Hope your furbaby feels better soon.

Hi Salinger! Hehehe...yousa missing the studded leather hat...Only a fit and trim puggy like yousaself could pull off leather...leather shows all sins you knows. George had a strain of the Kennel Cough a year ago and those meds are good...get your mommy to buy the pill pockets...much easier to give meds in and way nom nommy.

You are really a handsome BAD pug too! You look real good in leather. Your post brought a smile to my face! So sorry to hear about the kennel cough. Make sure everyone continues to wait on you hand & foot...after all, you are under the weather. Milk that, Sal!
Get better soon, cutie! xoxo Diane

Poor dude. Mom quit smoking for real on August 1 so she's been a little cranky and making that hacking sound, too.
When we have had kennel cough, mom always gives us a children's cough syrup (Natra Bio)from the natural/holistic store and lots of vitamin C and echinacea. The cough syrup keeps us from coughing so hard we throw up.
Get better soon!

Get better soon, Sal! Enjoy that cheese while you can! I'm finally finishing up all of my meds for my yeast & staph infection, I've gotten a little bit of ice cream and some turkey, so I think I'm going to root around and try to pick up some more yeast & staph. If anyone knows where to find some, let me know.

Later!

I had kennel cough and gave it to all my friends....:(
Glad you are giving up the smokes.

Hugs and licks,

Hank said...

Oh, Sally.....I feel your pain (although I've never been into leather).

I was a fifty-year smoker, as evidenced by my shrill, screechy bark. The patch worked for me, but boy does it stick to the fur!

Good luck, sweetie! Call me if you're having "a moment" and I'll talk you through it!

Lick ya later!

Hey Sal I am a former smoker. I still pick up old cig butts when we go for walks, it so hard to quit. Mom is so grossed out by my um habbit.

Feel better and hope you kick your habbit too.

Oh yeah I had the "kennel cough" too....don't worry you will feel better soon too!

Arlo The Pug said...

S-Dog!!! You are such a rebel. You go your own way and that's what we love about you!! But your mom's right about this one...smoking is bad. Hope you are having a great week! P.S.-sorry It's been so long, the mom's awful busy these days...rest assured, we still love you! Love, Arlo.

The Devil Dog said...

Salinger, you are just too funny, dude. Just too funny. Hope the cough goes away soon.

Pearl said...

Sal! Your little cough is TOO SAD and my momma would be forced to scoop you up and smooch on you every time you coughed!

Hope you are feeling better by now, cutie pie!

PS Leather is a good look for you! Yowza!

BRUTUS said...

Oh, Sal! You look soooooooo pathetic! We all had kennel cough last year, but oddly enough it made us sneeze instead (picked it up at a kennel while mom & dad were on vacation). Hope you are feeling A-OK soon, but kick the smoking habit, OK? You can still keep up your alter-ego without that stinky habit!
