New Series! “Is That a Puggle?”

Is That a Puggle? Your Weekly Puggle Party // picklesnhoney.com

This was inevitable.

At least several times a day, I’ll hear someone yell out “Is that a puggle?” as I’m walking Barley and Honey around our neighborhood. I’ll smile and nod, and then the person will exclaim, “Oh my god! Puggles!” as if they’re the best things since sliced bread (they are). The next five minutes are complete and utter pandemonium, as Honey and Barley compete for attention and try to climb the innocent person who has decided to run across the street or pull his or her car over to the side of the road to get a puppy fix. It’s become such a “thing” that the dogs now understand what “Is that a puggle?” means, and so of course, Aaron and I will randomly yell out “Is that a puggle?! Oh my god, is that a puggle?!” whenever we want to make them go nuts.

For months now, I’ve been wanting to include more regular posts with Honey and Barley, both because they are a central part of my life, and also because animals have this way of infusing the purest form of joy into otherwise ordinary moments. Who couldn’t use more of that?

Also, I have been dressing up my pets ever since I was a little girl. It’s totally ridiculous – I know – and my parents are most definitely reading this post, shaking their heads, and laughing at (with?) me right now. I guess we never really grow up all the way, and I think that’s a good thing.

I’m not saying Honey and Barley will be wearing costumes all the time, but we will be throwing weekly puggle parties. I hope you’ll join us for the fun!

      Oh, good idea! I’ll see if I can get a good puggle freak-out on video to share.

  4. LOVE this idea!
    And these pics are adorable!

  5. HAhahahahaaaa! Omg, favorite post ever! Those photos are the most awesome. When I come visit, can we walk them!?!? I’m inviting myself, it seems šŸ˜‰

      haha Sure! Although you may regret asking…Barley is really crazy when he first meets people. I had one woman very nicely ask me “What’s wrong with him?” the other day when he was crying/yelling and I had to explain “Oh, he’s just really excited to meet you. He’s happy, I promise.”

    I feel so ignorant that I’ve never heard of a puggle before! Honey and Barley are adorable though whatever breed they are.
    I can relate to the attention over your dogs when out on walks too. Everyone goes crazy over Alfie so I end up stopping every 5 minutes to let somebody stroke and talk to him!

    1. Amanda says

      Don’t worry about never hearing of puggles before – I think they’re an East/West coast thing because when we drove to CA, no one in the middle of the country had heard of them (they’re pug/beagle mixes, by the way). šŸ™‚
      I like the name Alfie! It’s nice to stop and chat on walks every so often, but I remember when Honey and Barley were puppies we could barely cover a walk around the block in under 20 minutes. At least they’re well-socialized!

  7. I love the idea of a puggle party! I have a pug and we always joke about her having pug parties, lol.

    Love their hats, can’t wait to see more of Honey and Barley on the blog.
