New hat

Steven went to a corporate meeting, and came back with a limited edition hat that he had convinced the company to give him for free if Shelby wore it on the Web site. I'm not sure if he inflated the number of Shelby's  fans in order to get this hat, but from my experience in the Web industry, I would not be terribly surprised. It is a very nice hat. Our friend Eric Swan started the company "splunk". It's a product aimed at helping IT guys track what's going on with their systems. How Steven managed to convince them that a pug site was a good place to put their hat is beyond me, but Steven can be quite charming, and Shelby is quite accommodating.

Since Steven got a free hat out of it, I will have to comment on how wonderful the hat looks on Shelby!

I am not an IT person, but I have to say I do check your site almost daily to get my 'fix' of Shelby. Rosie is only a month or two younger than Shelby and not being a dog person a year ago, I am a 'convert' now. I couldn't imagine my life without a puggie now!
Keep up the wonderful site!

Hi Shelby,

Just wanted to tell you how blessed you are to have such great human to take great care of you. It is very obvious that they value and love you very much. I hope you know how fortunate you are to save such people in your life. Take good care.

That's an adorable photo *and* a funny coincidence. A good friend of mine works at Splunk, loves TypePad, knows that I love cute dogs (and once had a pug, and now work at Six Apart), and so he emails me about your blog, not knowing that we work together!

It's a small e-world.
