Remember when I said that pugs make good lobsters? Well, I take it back– well, at least for my pug. When Mal and I put the lobster costume on him the other day, he did not make a good lobster. Doesn’t his face just say it all?
Here’s why Murphy didn’t make a good lobster:
1. He has no neck.
The lobster head would not stay put on Murphy’s head. The only way we could get it to stay was if we put it over his eyes, nose, and mouth and attached it on his chin. Clearly, this did not make sense nor was it very nice.
2. His curly tail got in the way.
The costume had a great, long lobster tail, but because Murphy is a pug, his tail curled right up over it. A curly tail makes no sense on a lobster.
3. He’s easily distracted.
Every time Murphy moved, the legs and tentacles on the costume would flail around. This caused him to chase after them, which resulted in crazy pug circles in a 3-foot radius. (If you have a pug, you know exactly what I am talking about!) So, even if the costume fit Murphy properly, he wouldn’t have been able to wear it for long.
Oh, well. I’m glad that we gave the lobster costume a try, but it’s back to the drawing board to find a Halloween costume for the pug.
I ate a 3-part lunch today. I started around 11:00 with cashew butter and apple butter spread on a Sandwich Thin.
Around noon, I ate some butternut squash with a drizzle of maple syrup, walnuts, and raisins. Here’s how I baked the butternut squash.
And around 2:00 pm, I had a bowl of yogurt with leftover fruit salad, cereal, and a scoop of Teddie peanut butter in the mix. I forgot how delicious yogurt + peanut butter tastes! It might make a serious comeback in my diet.
The pug is itching for his afternoon walk. Better boogie!
Yummy dinner on the agenda for tonight!
