Odds and ends

Greetings, loyal Pug Lifers. Over the last couple of days, I have begun work on a great architectural project. It is not of the same magnitude as the Dogloo compound, but I believe you will find it impressive nonetheless. Like the Dogloo compound, this structure is religious in nature. If all goes as planned (and this is not a certainty, given the complex nature of this project), I will share a photo of the awe-inspiring finished product with you soon. If not, we will never speak of this again.
During my last visit to Rabbi Jake's synagogue, I had my first experience with a doggy door. Jake came and went as he pleased, displaying a sense of freedom that at first appealed to me greatly. But that flap of plastic made me uneasy. With his long snout, Rabbi Jake was easily able to push the doggy door open. I, on the other hand, have a nearly concave snout. I felt that if I were to walk through the doggy door in the same manner as Rabbi Jake, my sensitive eyeballs might hit the plastic first. And that would not be good. So I called on my human servants to hold the doggy door open for me. This technology holds promise, I believe. But it needs further refinement. I suggest the humans model the next generation of doggy doors after those automatic doors at PetSmart.
This week in 1959, Rawhide, starring Clint Eastwood, premiered on CBS. Millions of intrigued canines tuned in, only to be sorely disappointed when all they saw was a bunch of humans in cowboy hats.

Yeah, but great Ayatollah, those cowboys also wore boots. And them boots were made for a-gnawin'.

Way to look on the bright side, Tyler. Perhaps I should name you minister of propaganda for Pug Life Ministries.

That is indeed a noble thought, wise One. However, I am not Muslim. My philosophies are based more along the lines of the great Pugfucius.
