NUMBERS...4, 12, 1, 9, 10, 25, AND A "SPECIAL 5"

Chica here: Guardian was talking with us about something called "numbers." We learned the number 4--4 legs, 4 toes, 4 years old (me!), and 4 outdoor walks (our favorite). I wear one Fancy Pants sometimes because I do what Guardian calls "whirligiging" on my bottom once in a while.  They look good on me!
4 legs, toes, 1 Fancy Pants

Gus's years' number is 9 now. He'll learn about 10 when he has his 10 bone birthday soon. Make sure you show up on something called October, number 25 to celebrate Gus's 10 bone birthday! Oh..there's another number--25!  Hey, I'm learning--but what's 25 mean anyway??!

All these 12 pugs are actually 1?? Wha..?
We were told the number 12 means how many parts (I think they are called "months"?) in 1 year--very confusing.  How does 12 = 1 anyway?

Today we also learned the number 5--that's because Guardian told us today is Pug Snort Report's 5 bone birthday. (Guardian says to click on that and you'll see the very first story on Pug Snort Report.) I don't know how many months that is, but I think it's a lot more than 12.

I never met Jazz, but Guardian said she started it all.
Yep, Jazz started it all

So we want to make sure you all know that, 'cause Jazz now lives only in Guardian's heart.    

Thanks, Jazz, for starting this.
Happy number 5 birthday, Pug Snort Report!

CHICA HERE:  Hey!  let's celebrate my ridiculous tongue, Gus!  Look, it's Tongue Out Tuesday!

GUS: Uh...and why are we celebrating your weird tongue?

CHICA:  I told you...because it's Tongue Out Tuesday!  Look...I have many ways to display my tongue:
After a bath..
While I'm waiting for my meals....

When I'm excited about something...

My tongue helps cool me...

Just relaxin'

My puppies needed my tongue lots of times
GUS: Puppies? What puppies?

CHICA: I was a momma before I came to live here.  My tongue cleaned them and helped them...uh...go potty.  Didn't Guardian tell you I was a momma?

GUS: Not really.  I mean, I don't really know much about puppies and mommas.

CHICA:  Ok...but just so you know, Gus, I CAN hide my tongue...

GUS: Yeah?
CHICA: How come your tongue doesn't stick out???

Chica here:  All this hoopla about politics has made our Guardian very grumpy.  So, we found out who the REAL best Presidential candidate is---Mildred!

Yeah, that makes it simple!  She's running for the Geezer Party.  I bet there are lots of Geezers out there who were disappointed lately, and we hope you will consider this four footed, one-eyed candidate!  Guardian, would voting for Mildred make you happy again???!!!

I especially like her tongue---

Gus here:  yeah, I kinda think I have a thing for her...I may have found out I like older lady pugs--well, especially this one. She keeps her eye on everything that's happening.  But she doesn't see everything, and that's good.  So Mildred, please come to my area and let's...well...I'm saving my comments for our private time together :-) Oh, and maybe you'd like me to be your VP running partner?   I see you have the moves...I'd like to move with you!

Mildred here:  Get in line, puggy.  I've got quite the list of admirers....

Oh Gus, you are so pugsmacked...that's cute!

Whew! I pant and pant and pant on a walk trying to get cool.  Guardian told me a doctor fixed some of my body parts to make it easier to breathe.  Maybe so, but when I walk out the door with Gus for a walk, I still pant and pant.

When I came in from a walk today, I found a really cool spot.

There was a lot of cool air coming out of this thing on the floor, but it wasn't all that comfortable lying on that hard thing.

I had to move a bit to get comfy, though. Pugs like to lie on soft things, but a girl's gotta do what she has to do to take away her hotness!

Today, Guardian came up with a new idea for cooling me on a walk.

She called it a "Chilly Buddy" coat.  It was really made for Gus a while ago, so it was sorta too long for me. Well, it just made me cooler, 'cause it covered more of me. Guardian stuck it in water first and when she put it on me, I didn't pant at all
--well for the first block anyway.  But I got used to it and now I don't mind wearing it at all!

Here's Gus wearing it when Guardian told to me he did something called "herding" sheep in a hot place. 
I guess those funny whitish animals are sheep?

Anyway, thanks, Gus for sharing your cooling coat!

My what???

Chica here:  I am officially smart!!

Gus here:  Well, you aren't the only pug in the house who's smart.

And I've been smarter much longer than you.  You gotta a LOT of catching up to do!
You aren't a real Therapy Dog yet, either!

You really know how to hurt a girl...

I'm sorry...guess I'm not all that smart, am I? I've got a bunch still to learn...

That's OK Gus.
I love you anyway!

Guardian takes me to this place that has all these great food smells and toys.  But I don't get to eat or play. I get put into this thing.

So I had to explore. All sorts of dog and other smells here.  

Then water comes from this...

And next thing I know I get wet, then there's some smelly stuff that gets rubbed into me. Then the water again, and now I'm still all wet!

Hey...you gonna leave me like this?!
Not sure I like this look...

Enough with the drying already!

So, what's next after this?

Time to go for a treat???  Maybe??

OK...this'll do!

I'm Chica here.  New to this place. Y'know, it is SO...strange.  I mean there's stuff I've never seen before.  Some just call me to explore.
Like this thing....whatever it is...

What about all this?!

I'm thinking I might....

What do YOU think....?

Uh-Oh.... I see "that look" from Guardian....Busted!
