I'm Famous!

I was just hanging out on my surfboard in Dad's office when Mom walked in and told me that I was famous. Duh Mom! Are you just figuring this out? I've been famous for years. Get with the program!

Mom whipped out a piece of paper, put it next to my head, and quickly snapped a picture. I look a little miffed in the picture because I was completely in the dark - I had no idea what was going on. I was just about to take a quick little nap when Mom walked in, but after she showed me the paper and told me all about it, I was so excited that I couldn't sleep.

Mom wrote an article about my blog for The Writer's Block, the newsletter of the College of Lake County Writing Center. Mom works as a tutor at the Writing Center and is always telling the tutors about my blog. Some of them look at her like she has lost her mind when she tells them I blog. Some people just ignore her. But some people actually think it's great that I do something with my time other than my daily security duties, eat, and sleep (not necessarily in that order).

When Mom's boss Kim asked her if she would like to write an article for the newsletter, Mom of course said yes, but then asked what she should write about. Mom is full of ideas but most of them are not about writing. Then Kim suggested that she write about my blog. Kim visits my blog all the time and is always telling Mom how much she loves it. Mom wondered who would want to read about my blog, but Kim assured her that she could write a great article about it and viola - here it is!
Who is that good-looking guy on the front page? The front page! Oh yes, that's me, looking very cute indeed. The newsletter is distributed electronically to the entire staff at the college, with hardcopies available at the Writing Center, so hopefully lots of people will read the newsletter and then stop by my blog to say hi.

Mom kept the article a secret from me because she wanted it to be a surprise. It's kind of like a pre-birthday gift and I couldn't be happier!

Stubby! Get your famous self over here and give me a pawtograph! OH MY GOODNESS!

You look dashing in your picture. I biggified the article and read it. It was perfect! Who WOULDN'T want to read your blog!?

CONGRATS on fame and fortune! Don't forget about me, ok?

Pearly Poo - How could I ever forget about you?

I glad you biggified (I like that word!) the article to read it. Mom was worried that the picture was a little too small and that people and pugs would have a hard time reading it.

I'm sending a virtual pawtograph your way, Miss Pearl. Stubby xoxo

Hey Annie - I am not as famous as I am good-looking! You are pretty cute yourself Ms. Annie. Do you really have swine flu or is Howie just telling stories? If you do, I will nurse you back to health. Stubby xoxo

WOW...we're blown away to be friends with such an important Puggy!

That's a great article that mom did! We "biggified" it too and thought it was pretty cool.

Mom gets the "crazy" looks from people too when she tells them she has a DogBlog for me! Seems totally normal to me!!!! What's the big farkakte deal???

Love,
Salinger

Hey Salinger - People just don't understand that pugs blog.
Mom tells everyone that all cool pugs blog, so if you're not blogging, then you better get with the program. I agree with you - what is the big farkakte deal?
