As many of you know, my bestest bud is Spencer, and we like to play A LOT! When lots of playing occurs, we get a phenomenon that in my house is called "Jowl Juice", and it freaks dad out. See us pugs, in all of our adorableness, have jowls. These jowls are like our own personal purse. We can store (or hide) things for hours in there, and pull them out when we have need. Case in point, dad lets me hang outside in the backyard (shhhh don't tell mom I'm unsupervised) while he does dad things (ie watch Man v. Wild). When he does check up on me (every commercial break) I like to hide that twig I'm chewing on up inside my jowl until he leaves, then I can resume chewing. He's none the wiser and I've got my twig.
But jowl juice is something different all together. It requires water (I prefer a nice cold filtered water) and a bowl of your choice. Next make sure you sniff your water (if anything is floating in it-other than a hot dog-then snub the water...trust me mom's will get you fresh water....just orb her) then if it meets your standard begin to slowly drink the sweet elixir. When possible, expand your jowls, and store. Now the trick is to step away from the bowl (don't worry how much of your saliva is in there...again mom will rinse the bowl and give fresh water..so don't panic) and let all that jowl juice-now a wonderful mixture of water/saliva/twigs/dirt/leaves out of your jowl. Better yet slowly release the juice while walking away thus getting it all over the kitchen floor that dad just moped up. Now I know one (or both) of your parents may give you "the look", but oh well, they are the one cleaning the floor right? If you really want to upset the 'rents, once they clean up and walk away...do it again...hehe serves them right not giving you that extra cookie.
On a side note...I want to wish my friend Anakin a quick recovery from surgery. Poor Anakin has had a rough few day...and it was his birthday to boot. So I ask everyone to please send pawsitive pug thoughts his way and to keep his mom and dad in your thoughts. Anakin, we're all sending you a giant (( Pug Hug!!))
