Thank you all for the feedback regarding policy formulation. For Pugs seeking membership, please see Winston's blog for details, as he is in charge of recruiting.

Existing rules, revised - edits are highlighted in purple for your convenience, because I am in a purple mood today.

1 - No member may allow more than 3 working days to elapse without a blog entry, except as specified by rules #6 and #7. (Note that Saturday and Sunday are excluded from this requirement as we Pugs are not required to entertain most humans on these days.) Special preference is given to those members who post daily, with extra special favor (in the form of very sloppy wet kisses) being lavished upon those members who post multiple times in one day.

2 - If 3 working days elapse with no blog entry, membership will be considered for revocation and the member in peril will get the butt end of the Pug instead of the face end. If the member in peril posts an exceedingly apologetic entry complete with a picture of his or her backside entitled, "I am a Butt for not Posting More Often" within 2 days of notice of possible membership revocation, the revocation process will be terminated.

3 - Membership is revoked based on a majority vote of existing members in good standing. The vote will remain open for a period of 24 hours, at which time the vote will close and the outcome will be announced. Any members who do not cast their vote will receive a nasty pee-mail and one demerit.

4 - Once membership has been revoked, a member may re-apply for membership at any time, but is required to undergo hazing by the existing members in good standing while their application is under review. During the hazing, existing members in good standing may each make 1 "truth or dare" request to the member-in-waiting over the period of 1 week. If the member-in-waiting denies any request or does not respond to the request within 3 days, membership will be denied.

5 - If membership is granted to a previously revoked member, the member will start their membership with a lower rank than previously held and must post one humiliating photo of themselves on their blog, preferably involving a costume of some sort.

6 - Members are permitted as many vacations per year as their budget will allow. While on vacation, the member is not required to post on his or her blog for the duration of the vacation. Before departing for vacation, the member must make a farewell post, documenting the number of days the vacation will last and when he or she will resume blogging. Once back from vacation, an adequate posting of pictures is required.

7 - During the event of an illness, family/friend emergency or other impending act of God, the blogger is excused from blogging for the extent of the incident. Acts of God include but are not limited to; lack of Internet access, lack of computer or any other unforeseeable and tragic event that leads to the blogger's inability to physically or mentally access his or her blog. Once blogging resumes, the member is not required to explain the details of the event if he or she does not care to, but may instead cite the reason for their absence as "Taking the 7th," much like humans, "Take the 5th" when they don't care to discuss something.

    Sounds good to me!

    Although I'm one of those people who is paranoid and don't like to post when, where, and how long I'm going out of town for. You never know...

    ...only because the attack pug isn't around to protect the house...

    Well, I guess you'll have to post a picture of your butt when you get back then!

    Those are good rules. We agree.
    Come see my blog Tuesday, Norm, and I will have a gift for you.
