This is me....begging!!!

Hi everyone! Normally I'm much too proud and aloof to beg (hahaha) but for the next few days, I'm going to be on my PugKnees begging for your help.

See? This is my BEGGING face!

Some of you may know that my peeps and local friends are huge fans/supporters of Kentuckiana Pug Rescue (KPR). KPR helps SO many Puggies move on to better lives and is made up of 100% volunteer efforts! To raise money for the Pugs currently in foster care (over 80!) and in need of medical attention, KPR holds a few events during the year that bring in some much needed dollars. One of these events is coming up on March 5 right here in Indy....MARCH IN THE PUGS! CLICK HERE to read all about it!

Part of the fun (and a great moneymaker) of March in the Pugs is the RAFFLE TABLE!!!

Do you recognize this work of art? Our amazingly talented friends MELISSA AND EMMITT donated some great prints to be raffled last year (and the year before) and have kindly agreed to send another donation THIS year! THANK YOU guys!

Another amazingly talented friend, PUNCHY, donated these goodies last year too!

(Oh...HI Flat Brutus!)

Trust me...people FLOCKED to the raffle tables for a chance to win one of these fabulous items!!!! point of looking sad, pathetic and BEGGY today is to ask all of my friends/loyal readers/first time lurkers and even people that read us just for the jackassery factor, to PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING SOMETHING FOR OUR RAFFLE TABLE FOR OUR EVENT ON MARCH 5!!!!

Even if you're not crafty or artistic...GIFT CARDS are always a great raffle item (restaurants, Petco, PetSmart, etc). KPR is a non profit (501C3) organization and would be more than happy to send you a receipt for your donation and even list you as a sponsor on their website!


Please just Pee-Mail my assistant/mom at and she will be FLIPPED OUT HAPPY to send you the address to mail a donation!

Please pass the word on to anyone you know that loves Puggies and would be interested in helping OR even attending the March In The Pugs on March 5! ALL breeds (even SNOUTED breeds!) are welcome!!

Sweater Day...dedicated to the memory of Stubby!

Hi everyone! YAY! It's SWEATER DAY! I am!

I don't look like my sweet chipper self (HA!) because I was sweating my PugButt off! It is 65 degrees here in Indy right now and we don't even HAVE the thermostat on today!!!

We think Stubby would be totally proud of us for turning OFF the thermostat and opening our windows! Mom also took a load of stuff to the Abitibi/recycle box we're claiming DOUBLE points!

We also had to share this funny YouTube video that we saw on Wilma's bloggie! HAHAHAHA

Happy Stubby Sweater Day everyone! Thanks to Winston for making sure we were all on board with this cool idea!!!!

Winner winner chicken dinner!!!!


Here he is at the Science Fair last night with his TROPHY!!!! Congratulations Holden!!!! smells like SUCCESS!

Holden told me that my job today is to watch over his trophy to make sure it doesn't get lost or stolen!

I'm on it!!!

NOW...Holden moves on to the REGIONAL science fair at Ball State University on Feb. 26th! CLICK HERE to read more about that!

He Blinded Me With SCIENCE!'s that time of year for Holden again...SCIENCE FAIR!!!
Here is his 2011 creation/submission....(drum roll please....)

PEARLY WHITES! He tested 3 methods for TOOTH WHITENING!
(be sure to click to biggify the pics so you can see details!)
**Notice the title...PEARLY WHITES! It's a wink wink, nudge nudge to my fabulous Okie Friend PEARL!**

Since *I*, Salinger The Pug, am Holden's trusty assistant and good luck charm for most things, I will explain the project to you...

FIRST...he covered tiles with grout to simulate the "texture" of a tooth
NEXT, he soaked all the tiles in TEA for 24 hours.
THEN, for the next seven days, he treated the teeth in three different groups.
1. Crest whitening toothpaste, 2. baking soda, 3. Crest Whitestrips
His hypothesis was that the Whitestrips would be the most effective....

Let's see if he was right....

Hmmmm....the whitest tooth was the one treated with....

Crest Whitening Toothpaste (for 7 days). WOW! What a surprise!!!!

Mmmmm...these smell minty fresh and are just BEGGING for a taste!!!! NOM NOM NOM!

Science Fair is today! GOOD LUCK HOLDEN!!!!!!!!!

Stay tuned for an update later when the results are in!!!!

Roxy's Road Trip!

As some of you may know, my PugPal Roxy The Devil Dog from New Hamster has put together a road trip to get all of OUT of the ridonkulous cold weather and into some sunshine!
She even chartered THIS!

The SnowBus/Tank was headed this way to pick me up, so mom got some pics while we were waiting...

Holden built this super awesome snow/ice fort...
Disguised as a TANK!

That was cool and everything, but I had to get inside and warm up and get CHANGED!

Check out my fabulous ensemble.....I put my swim trunks on so I'll be ready for the beach, but I opted for my biker leather jacket for warmth...

Then waited out in the driveway for Roxy.

Notice the fabulous VINTAGE valise and empty beverage glass just waiting for Brigitte to Pugtini me!

HURRRRRRY UUUUUP for crying out Pug!!!

I was getting impatient...and nearly froze my PugButt off waiting for that farkakte bus/tank!

Finally she made go visit ROXY'S page to read about the rest of our "Road Trip"!

Happy Sunday everyone! We're watching THIS instead of silly football....

The NOT so glamorous side of Indy Iceageddon '11!

Yesterday we showed you all the fun and jackassery that went along with our big ice storm, but today we're showing you a darker, less fun side!

Flash back to yesterday morning...

"Um...MOM? I can't get out my door to go take care of "business"!"


Mom pried my door open and HOLY CRAP! Look at this!!!

Be sure to click to biggify!
**Mom's note...yeah...I really need to repaint all the trim!**

"Wow Mom...that's a hot buttered MESS right there! What are YOU going to do about it???"

"Hurry up....I'm ready to EXPLODE!"


First she tried this big spoon/chisel method....

Which would have been awesome if I was in the mood for a SNOW CONE!!!

GOTTA PEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! she dumped boiling hot water all over the deck...

THAT was a big ol' FAIL too...just made a slushy mess that froze right back up!


A hair dryer??? SERIOUSLY MOM?????

Time to bust out the big guns....

A sledgehammer, axe and a GRILL SPATULA!!!!



Thanks for the path and everything, but SO LONG SUCKERS!!!!!

It's WAAAY too cold out here! I'm taking MY pugButt back inside!!!!!

Happy Thursday everyone!!!!

Indy Iceageddon 2011!!!

WE SURVIVED and miraculously didn't lose power during the big ice storm that hit us here in Indy yesterday! Mom is putting together another blog post for tomorrow about trying to get out my doggie door, but today is all about FUN!

Check these videos of the peeps and I (shot here in our very own DRIVEWAY) and notice my graceful 4 legged footing on all this ICE!

Happy Wednesday everyone! We hope you're warm, snuggly, safe and having FUN wherever you are!

Ice Ice Baby!!!

Good morning! This is Salinger T. Pug, your loyal reporter coming to you LIVE from Pendleton, Indiana where we are in the midst of an ICE STORM!

As you can see here, our front yard looks like a triple dipped Krispy Kreme doughnut!

The news people have been foaming at the mouth for a few days with 24/7 coverage about the ICE headed our way!

And there's MORE on the way! Oy gevalt!

Mom went out to the grocery store yesterday to get a few things so we wouldn't have to go out (and because that's what old Hoosier woman do!) and THIS was the scene at Kroger....

Bread aisle....totally picked over!

Here is the line for checkout lane 1 (which was the SHORTEST us!)

Every lane was open and all of the employees were doing their best and they were even checking people out at the service counter and florist counter! It was insane! Mom was in line for about 35 minutes and made friends with all the people around her.

Now...I also must report the UPSIDE to crappy weather like this....

Couch snuggling with Daddy!



Snuggling with Holden!

But the coolest thing about an ice storm is that I walk on TOP of it when I go outside to pee!

No "bulldozer" action here! I'm a 4 legged Zamboni!!!!

We hope all of our friends are safe and warm and making the best of the weather! We Midwesterners are tough and some of us secretly look forward to weather like this so we can have "snuggle days" home with our families!

Happy Icy Tuesday everyone!!! Be careful out there!

S. Pug...OUT!
