Flat Brutus: The Big Send-off

OK, here we go! It's what you've all been waiting for: the Flat Brutus Itinerary!! And what a list it is!!

As you have probably seen, Flat Brutus has already begun his World Tour with a great visit with fellow Frenchies Benny & Lilly last week in California. Now he is with Brutus' girlfriend Stella, so certainly he will have some great times there!! He also made a surprise appearance at the Kentuckiana Pug Rescue/March in the Pugs, thanks to the magic of email attachments!

With such a long list I made the tough decision to create a few more Flat Brutus'. The bloggers will all be sharing the same one (that's part of the fun, I think), but since this project has migrated outside the blog realm I had to enlist the services of some additional flatties in order to keep up with demand. So there is a second one for the non-bloggers, and a third for international stops. Right now there is a "litter" of Flat Brutus' on my kitchen counter (I also made some spares, just in case), ready to start their journeys!

What follows are lists of Flat Brutus hosts in the order that he should travel. It's designed to make his travels as efficient as possible, so please be patient if you are not one of the first visits. I'm asking that everyone try to keep their fun with FB within a week of when they receive him. If it takes you a while to post about it, no biggie. Just please try to keep him moving so that everyone gets their turn!

This list will also be included with each Flat Brutus, so just email me when you get him & I'll send the snailmail address of the next host. That way everyone's info stays as private as possible, and I'll be able to keep tabs on where the flatties are!

*These are doggies who have offered to host, but I have not yet received your physical address. Please be sure to send it soon!

If you do not see your name on this list, then either I had a blonde moment and misfiled the email, or did not receive it. It's not to late!! Just email me at our new address (brutusthefrenchieATyahooDOTcom) and I'll make sure to add you onto the list.

I will keep these lists posted on the Flat Brutus page (click on that in our nav bar) so that everyone can see where the Flat Brutus(s) is/are. I will most certainly include Flat Brutus visits & commentary in my regular posts, but I'll use the other page as an easily available summary and documentation of where he has been, is, and will be going next! You can also keep up with his travels on facebook, so please visit the Flat Brutus facebook page and become a "fan". If you do stop by there, please say "hi" so I can figure out who is visiting!

So that ought to do it! Now I can get back to my regular life, posting & commenting activities! Thanks again to all the hosts/participants!

Michelle, Flat Brutus is here! And I've been busy snapping pictures to memorialize his visit.

I'm sorry to tell you, he won't be leaving. I just can't break Stella's heart like that. I'm sure you understand.


Sonic said...

I hiew-hiewed until my Pops sent that email to you!

Now I can't wait to meet Flat Brutus!

I can't wait for him to arrive. I'm thinking of taking him for a ride on my 4-wheeler.

This project has taken on a life of it's own, hasn't it?

We're looking forward to showing him around the farm and we know the puppies will love chewing, we mean playing, with him.

I re-sent my snail mail to you. Please let me know if you still don't have it.

I can't wait until flat brutus visits me... I wonder what adventure I can take him on. It looks like it will be his only "Maine" appearance, BOL.

Such a fun time this will be! Glad we're toward the bottom of the list, as we just found out we're not heading up to Idaho until mid April. Have a great day!

P.S. Momma was thinking if it isn't too late maybe he should put a flyer about his doggie charity in his envelope.

Amber and Nala said...

Wow, I just got caught up...so much has been happening! Bruti...hehehe, I LOVE it! I can't wait for Flat Brutus to come and visit me! Looks like he is already having some fun! And also, I try to eat the green stuff too but normally only grass. As for sleeping on top of your Dad, that is very funny! I do that too but I switch off between Mom and Dad and sometimes I get right up close to them like you Brutus.
