PROFILE Of my CLAN O' DOGS.
Let's start with Hugo. Hugo has a way of looking at you with utter contempt that's frightening to the point of being comic. When I first showed off the Hugo puppet to Fal, all he said was "That's scary." For those who don't know, Fal is a big red dragon. It was funny to hear him say that about a puppet, (Though I'm certain he meant scary to mean disturbing
I've only ever seen him unsure of how to handle himself on one occasion, and that was when he met Spook. He didn't know what to make of him or how to deal with him (but I admit, at that particular point, I didn't really want to know--I wanted Hugo to shut the fuck up; could just have been static on my part).
Point is, Hugo's extremely pragmatic, and equally impatient with anyone who is not. This makes him a born leader. Inspires the other dogs, and inspires me to pull myself up by my bootstraps a bit.
He was born to mock those he considers beneath him, which is why he loves going to fur cons. :P It's great, I put him on my hand, and when I'm at my best, he just takes it over. He's a total asshole. It's wonderful. :P
Hugo talks with that Triumph the Insult Comic Dog accent, probably because that's the best way my brain knows how to process and interpret his style of sarcasm. It's something familiar that I know how to deal with. For those wondering, no, Hugo has never said "For me to poop on." At least not in my presence.
I don't know where he comes from. I asked him once, and he said "I come from the land of Shangri La, where the milk and the honey is free, and there are no irritating questions!"
HUGO, THE DOG, THE LEGEND, THE PUPPET:
The poppet which he occupies is a Folkmanis puppet, and he's damn proud of it. For those of you who don't know plushies, Folkmanis is like the Stratavarius of Plush Puppetry. Every Folkmanis spirit I've ever met has taken some pride in it. :P
