In the Crate Again…


In the Crate Again…

Pug behind bars

Stuck in the crate again…I don’t know what I have to do to get some attention around here! All the Humans ever seem to do these days is sit at that stupid table. What are they doing anyways? Nothing that has to do with Bunk, that’s for sure. Every time they let me out of the crate it seems like I’m back in it within 5 minutes. Stupid Humans!!!! I get so angry sometimes with those idiots. GRRRRRRRR! HOOOWWWLLLAAAAHHHH!

I’m really sorry for going off like that. I really need to get better at controlling my pug-temper. But it’s just that ever since the Humans stopped letting me sleep in their bed I’ve been a little off ya know? It happened so suddenly too. Every night, right before bedtime Hu-Paw would pick me up in his arms and carry me over to the bed. As he gently let me down on to the bed’s soft surface, I would position my furry pug-butt under the snuggly covers and proceed to burry my little pug-face into Hu-Paw’s armpit. I would lay there…he would rub my belly…and I would drift into a quiet pug dream. Sometimes I would wake up in the middle of the night to lick Hu-Paw’s and Hu-Ma’s face. I like to cover their faces in my slobber to let every other pug know that the Humans belong to me and that I am the only one allowed to give them pug-baths! My favorite place to lick to the Humans is up their nostrils because there are so manny yummy threats in there. Hu-Ma doesn’t really like it when I do that, but Hu-Paw will let me go at it for as long as I want. When I am finished, the inside of his nose is cleaner than the Pope’s toilet. After a long night’s sleep I would wake the Humans up by chewing on their ears and jumping on their faces. For some reason they got annoyed that I wanted to get up and play at 4:30 am. Once Hu-Paw got his lazy butt out of the bed, he would take me out to pick up my poop, and then he would feed me. What a great way to start the morning.

But things suddenly changed. The Humans no longer let me sleep in their bed! I don’t get it. One night, while patiently waiting in my crate, the Humans walked right by me, turned off the lights, and went to sleep. I figured that it had to have been a mistake so I started barking and howling as loudly as I could so they would realized what they forget. But they didn’t do anything. They just sat there.

Ever since then my Hu-Ma and Hu-Paw don’t let me on the bed. They tell me it has something to do with this thing called “shedding,” but I have no idea what that is. Someone really needs to help me figure out how to get on the bed so I can give the Humans pug-baths and so I can shove my face into their armpits. They get mad at me for waking them up at 4:30 am by scratching away at my crate. Well, I wouldn’t have to scratch away at my crate if I were in the bed!


  1. Oh poor Bunk, the humans probably have your best interests at heart. Our pawrents let us in the big bed once we are trained but lots of doggies dont sleep in the big bed and our very happy

  2. Aw, Bunk, that’s just not fair! They changed your routine and expect you to just adapt to it! I sure hope you find a way to get on the bed to clean their nostrils!

    OH BUNK this is just sooooo sad. I am sorry to hear about the shedding thingy and that your mom and dad don’t want you in their bed beclaws of if. Don’t they KNOW that you wouldn’t mind having their shedded furs all over your sleek black furs. It might just be a grrrrreat look. Perhaps they could start sleepin with those toboggan Cap thingys on. That would hold their furs on their heads and you could get back to havin a GOOD NIGHT.

    We feel your pain. Bunk. We don’t even get to go in the humans’ bedroom! But we do have our own beds and we have our crates with the doors open. We like having the kitchen to ourselves too. Lightning still sleeps in a locked crate because he wants to play all night long. We would love to sleep on the humans’ bed too, but we have accepted our plight:( Just make them give you extra treats to keep you busy at 4:30 in the morning.

  5. Hey Bunk!
    Wow, this is horrible! I think it’s pug abuse fur sure. I think the solution is for your peeps to buy a set of sleek black sheets. This will solve the whole problem. No one will notice a little bit of Bunk fur on black sheets. SEND THEM SHOPPING QUICK!! I hope you get back to your proper sleeping spot right away.

  6. Hi Bunk! Poor dude. You don’t seem to happy in that crate. My ‘rents let me snuggle in the bed but then when they go to sleep I have to go in my own bed. It’s actually an “elevated co-sleeper” or “ela-bed” which is fancy talk for a rubbermaid bin with a dog bed on top ( It’s at the same level as their bed so it seems like I’m in their bed but I’m actually in my own bed. Although I do usually sneak out sometimes in the middle of the night and squish inbetween them on the big bed – or put my butt right up by their faces. Well, I wish you luck. Maybe they’ll change their tune when they realize how dirty their nostrils are getting without your diligent cleaning!


  7. Bunk! Listen up, what you are living through right now may not last forever…I know cuz the same thing happen to me ‘n my sister. Believe it or not, we were banished to a *dog bed* just cuz we took up too much room (WHAT…? We are talking about a KING size bed here!) and we left too many hairs behind. Jeesh, like being loving and generous with our pugness isn’t a good thing!

    Okay, here is the hard part…but, it works really well, I swear. After I had two surgeries within six months (I looked really helpless and small after each one, which is really easy cuz it did hurt…a lot), presto back in bed…both of us! Mommy says its cuz she doesn’t want to miss a minute without me. Just what I had been trying to tell them all along. Hmmmm. I just thought of an easier way back in…as soon as one of them doesn’t feel well jump back on the bed and snuggle into their armpit!

    Good luck Bunk,

  8. Oh Bunk you look so miserable! But I’m sorry I had to laugh at your post as you are so stinking funny. Nostril treats! Forgive me I’m only human. As good ol’ Willie would say…In the crate again, I just hate to get in that crate again, the life I love is eating treats and taking naps and I just hate to go in that crate again!!!! My little Pugger didn’t like his crate at first either. Now it’s his safe little home. He likes to hide his treats in there and I always now if he’s done something wrong like poop on the floor cuz I’ll find him in his crate with this guilty look on his face. He doesn’t care too much when I take his blankets out to wash them because the treats go flying. All that work wasted!

  9. Bunk, our humans won’t let us sleep in the same room as them either! Gronk gets locked in the bathroom and spare bedroom and I can run around but not go in the bedroom. It’s very unfortunate. We find that frantic meowing helps. I’m sure you’ll find loud howling every night will do the same.

  10. Hey Bunk!
    Wow, I was just blogging along this morning and realized that I hadn’t seen you for awhile so I thought I’d pop in and say Hi to you! Hope your doing well.

    Love this game!

  13. My mama tried putting me in the crate for sleeps when I first came home, but soon I had her trained! ONE time she let her guard down and fell asleep with me on the bed for a “nap” and then I used my puggy charms BOL!!! Probably helps that I don’t shed tooooo much though!

  14. Susie and Sidebite on
