A Conversation

*This conversation overheard recently
(by Rocky the Bird)
at the Duke & Gidget household*

Mom: Gidget was real finicky tonight.
She wouldn't eat her kibble until
I put some yogurt on top of it.

Dad: We don't have any yogurt. We used
the last of it when we made Frosty Paws.

Mom: Oh... Hmmmm.....

Dad: Apparently, Gidget likes sour cream.

Mom: Yep. She loves it.

Duke: I didn't get any sour cream. Grrrr

Gidget: Hehehehehe

Woooo Hooooo! Our pals Pugsley, Buster, Cricket, and Daisy have given us the Rockin' Dog Blogger award, and we couldn't be happier! Thanks guys! And just to show how much we actually rock, here is a picture of Gidget jamming on the guitar.

Well maybe she was actually just sitting on it, but hey, it's the thought that counts.

As recipients of the award, we also get to hand out a few, so we would like to present the Rockin' Dog Blogger Award to:

Winston & Sela
Napoleon & Maggie
Suki Sumo
Seadra & Zoe

Come to think of it, all of our pals rock, so if you are reading this, we present the award to you too. You rock.

Monday Night Videos: Pug Meetup

You know how some days, you just don't feel like blogging? Well, today is one of those days for us. But as they say, the show must go on, so it is with heavy hearts that we dedicate tonights video to our pals ChiChi & Tiny. We are so saddened by your passing, but we know that you are both now running and playing together at the rainbow bridge. God bless you both.

Another Angel Gets Her Wings

Our dear friend Tiny joined her sister ChiChi at the rainbow bridge last night. We'll miss you so much sweet girl, and we look forward to seeing you and your sister at the bridge. Our deepest condolences go out to her Mama and Daddy, her sister Sugar, and her brother Baxterman. We can't even imagine having to go through this twice in one week.

We've Got Crab Legs

A couple days ago, my hero The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door came over, and he brought a big blue cooler with him. Normally, when The Crazy Man brings a cooler over, it is usually filled with beer. But this time, there was something alive in there.

Yep, it was full of crabs! For those doggies that don't know what a crab is, it's a really hard fish with claws on its legs. Duke and I checked them out thoroughly.

Duke even tried to sniff one of the crabs butts, but he couldnt find it.

Apparently, The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door caught these crabs in a dungeon, because they are called Dungeon-est crabs. (Dukes edit: Actually, they are called Dungeness crab, and The Crazy Man caught them in Puget Sound) That Crazy Man sure is brave to go into a dungeon filled with crabs! In fact, The Crazy Man is so cool that he even ate the crabs while they were still alive! (Dukes edit: No, he didn't eat them while they were still alive. Pull your head out of your pug-butt Gidget)

Then, after The Crazy Man ate a few of the crabs, he threw the rest of them into a big pot of boiling water. I kinda felt bad for those poor crabs, until he took them out and we all enjoyed a big crab feast. Then, I didn't feel so bad for them anymore. Once again, The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door has proven why he is the coolest human on the face of the earth. You rule The Crazy Man!

Time Capsule Tagged

Hi everydoggy, Duke here. Our buddy Sherman has tagged me to list 5 things I would put in a time capsule for the benefit of future Dogs. I have to admit, this was a pretty tough one. I wouldn't want to put anything in there that I would miss, so that immediately disqualified all of my toys, and anything edible. So here is what I came up with for my time capsule.

1. A picture of my tongue. I would want the future generations of dogs to see what a real pug tongue should look like. I know it's kinda cheating to just use a picture, but hey, I would really miss my tongue.
2. Our stupid wading pool. This would show the future generations of dogs what our Mom & Dad used to torture us with. And also, I would LOVE to get rid of that damn pool.
3. Poop. Some of the poop's I leave are masterpieces, and should probably be in a museum somewhere. So that would be perfect for the time capsule.
4. The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door. This was a tough one, cause I would definitely miss him, but I figure he could benefit the future generations of dogs by showing the future generations of humans the proper butt scratching technique.
5. My sister Gidget. I don't know if she would benefit the future generations of dogs, but she could at least keep The Crazy Man company. And one less mouth to feed would mean more treats for me!

So anyway, that's what I would leave in my time capsule. Now I have to tag 3 more doggies, so I would like to tag Winston, Suki, and Newton. What would you guys leave behind for the future?

Rest In Peace Dear ChiChi

We are so very sad to have learned that our dear friend ChiChi passed over to the rainbow bridge last night. ChiChi was one of the first friends we made when we started blogging, and we loved her dearly. We'll miss you sweet girl, and we look forward to seeing you at the bridge. We hope everyone will take the time to visit her mom Sandy today. We're sure she could use your words of comfort.

Monday Night Videos: Gidget Vs Mr Frog

Tonight on Monday Night Videos, we present an encore performance of the video classic, Gidget Versus Mr Frog. This was actually first posted on our blog in June of 2006. It features a very young Gidget battling her arch enemy, the evil Mr Frog. Enjoy!

Giant Fish Update

Quite a few doggies questioned the authenticity of the giant catfish pictured in our previous post. After doing a little research, we are happy to report that the picture does appear to be real. This has been verified by both and But it still has absolutely nothing to do with the salmon that The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door gave us. So take that Winston.

The Crazy Man Comes Through

A couple weeks ago, we posted about a giant steelhead trout that The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door killed. Apparently Duke hurt his feelings when he said that he would be cooler if he had shared some of his fish with us. Well last night, The Crazy Man made up for it. He came over with a giant hunk of king salmon that he killed (Duke's edit: actually, a friend of his caught it) in the Columbia river, and he gave Duke and I a huge chunk of it. We devoured it so fast that Mommy and Daddy couldn't even get any pictures of us eating it. But here is a picture of the salmon before The Crazy Man cut it up.

Duke's edit: I believe this picture is actually of a giant catfish, and has absolutely nothing to do with the salmon that The Crazy Man gave us. Gidget is so smitten with The Crazy Man that it sometimes impares her judgement. But that salmon sure was delicious. I take back every bad thing I ever said about you The Crazy Man.

The Crazy Man Who Live Next Door ROCKS!

Our Cousin The All-Star

This is a photo of our cousin Cameron, who just happens to be the star pitcher on his little league baseball team. Cam's team won their district tournament, and tomorrow they start play in the state championship tournament. Hopefully they can keep on winning and make it all the way to the little league world series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Even though Cameron is kinda scared of us, we are very, very proud of him. So keep going strong Cam, and remember, there are two little pugs who will be cheering their heads off for you!

Frosty Paws Recipe

Our buddy Newton wanted to know what recipe we used to make our frosty paws, so we thought we would post it just in case anydoggy else wanted to know too. But remember, we are in no way professionals, and this recipe is just the way that we like to do it.

2 cups plain yogurt
1 cup all natural unsalted peanut butter
2 bananas (lightly mashed)
shredded carrots (about a handful)

Mix yogurt and carrots together in a large bowl. Add the bananas. Remember to mash them lightly. We love finding banana chunks in there. Lightly mix in the peanut butter, reserving some for later. Then, spoon the mixture into the freezing container. We have a flexible cupcake pan that works great, but we also use those small round Glad storage containers. Then, add a dollop of the reserved peanut butter, and swirl it around with a toothpick. We love peanut butter swirls! Then put the containers in the freezer and wait for them to freeze. After they freeze, we also like to let them sit out for a few minutes to soften a little before we eat them. The last step is putting them in a bowl and devouring them. That is of course our favorite step.

So anyways, that is our recipe. It isn't an exact science, but it works for us. Also sometimes as an added treat we'll cut up some Pupperoni lean and throw it in there too. However, if you're trying to diet (like Gidget), you might wanna just leave the extra stuff out. We hope everydoggy enjoys them as much as we do!

I Rock!

Yes! My buddy Peanut awarded me the "Rockin' Guy Blogger" award, and I couldn't be happier! I always knew I rocked, but this is just an extra confirmation of that. I even get to put this awesome badge on my blog. Isn't it cool?

I'm not sure if being a "Rockin' Guy Blogger" allows me to give out a "Rockin' Girl Blogger" award, but I don't really care. I'm giving one to the rockinest chick I know. My sister Gidget.

I also get to give out seven more "Rockin' Guy Blogger" awards, so I would like to award them to:
Winston #2
Pugsley & Buster
Goodboy Norman Featherstone

OK, that might be eight. Hey, just cause I Rock doesn't necessarily mean I can count. But you guys all rock and you definitely deserve it. And since Gidget is now a "Rockin' Girl Blogger", that means she gets to give out seven "Rockin' Girl Blogger" awards. So she would like to give them to:
Cricket (and an honorary one for Daisy)
Suki Sumo
Meimei and Miko

Wow, I guess Gidget can count a little better than I can. Anyhowl, enjoy your awards guys and gals, you all definitely deserve them! And don't forget to put the badge on your blog and show the whole world that you ROCK! Thanks again Peanut!

A New Pug Pal

Hey everydoggy, we would like to introduce you to our newest pal. He is a black pug named Newton, and his blog is called In Pug We Trust. And you know that with a name like that, it has to be good. We hope everydoggy goes on over and welcomes him to the blogging world. As you can see from this photo, he is a real cutie.

Hmmm, he kinda reminds me of another handsome black pug that I know. I wonder who that could be......

Happy Birthday Winston

Happy 1st birthday to our best buddy Winston.

It seems like only yesterday that you were just a shy little puppy.

And now, you've grown into a handsome young pug.

Happy birthday pal, and we look forward to celebrating with you later today.

~Duke & Gidget~

Editors note: Some of these pictures were stolen directly from Winston's blog. We hope he doesn't mind, but if he does, well, too bad.

Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed?

It sure was nice of Mommy & Daddy to buy me my very own doggie bed so I don't have to jump up onto the couch quite as much. I really appreciated it. And apparently, so did Duke. As you can see from these photos, "my" bed has pretty much met the same fate as "my" toys. It is now officially Duke's property. You know, I wouldn't mind it quite so much if he didn't stick his tongue out at me while he is stealing my bed.

I would recommend sleeping with one eye open Dukie........

The Crazy Man and the Sea

This is one of the reasons that I love The Crazy Man Who Lives Next Door so much. He actually goes out and kills his own food. Look at this giant Steelhead Trout that he single handedly killed. I think he actually swam out into the ocean (Duke's edit: it was a river) and beat this fish to death with his bare hands (Duke's edit: he used a fishing pole). That Crazy Man sure is a cool guy (Duke's edit: he would be cooler if he had shared some of his fish with us, but he does give great butt scratches).
