Nugget is a tiny little puppy. His coat has hints of calico, with light tan fur and bits of faintly darker brown stripes. He has oversized puppy paws that look soft and goofy, and ears that are tall and pointed (though wide at the base). Signs of Nugget's fey nature can be seen in the blink dog's unnaturally angular limbs. Nugget's eyes are black but turn to a bright blue just before teleporting.
As of Homeward Bound (2x48), Nugget had grown up considerably. Though still a young blink dog, he is about as large as a fully grown conventional dog now.
It is unknown how Kestiff Drudy acquired this blink dog puppy. He and his troupe gave the puppy initial training to stay within its cage, otherwise it would be physically impossible to keep the teleporting fey creature in his menagerie.
"Beyond the Boundaries" (2x32) Edit
Jester was immediately enamored with the cute little puppy, so she split the cost of 100 gp for the little blink dog with Beau. That way, they could have a pet together, and it could share their room whenever they roomed together.
"The Ruby and the Sapphire" (2x33) Edit
When the Mighty Nein relaxed on the beach on their way to Nicodranas, Jester spent two hours training Nugget to blink on-command, after hearing the command word "poof".
"Encroaching Waters" (2x34) Edit
Nugget struggled during the extensive swimming required to reach the Sluice Weave .
"Dockside Diplomacy" (2x35) Edit
After the Nein finished their business under the city, Jester left Nugget in her mother's care prior to Marius' midnight meeting on the wharf. Nugget remained in Marion's care when the Nein stole the Mist.
"O Captain, Who's Captain?" (2x36) Edit
Jester asked her mother to take care of Nugget via Sending, which Marion was happy to do.
"Homeward Bound" (2x48) Edit
"Wood and Steel" (2x58) Edit
"Domestic Respite" (2x62) Edit
Nugget was designated as a 'Guard Nugget' by Jester and he was allowed to share her and Beau's bedroom, although Jester decided that he would also sleep on the balcony patio. Beau insisted that he was not allowed on her bed due to his drooling.
"A Dangerous Chase" (2x64) Edit
"Family Gathering" (2x71)Edit
- Jester Lavorre: Co-owner. She takes more interest in Nugget and has attempted to train him.
- Beauregard: Co-owner. Given that Jester seems to have a greater interest in training and bonding with Nugget, Beau has allowed her to take most of the responsibility for him.

Notable Items Edit
- Since this blink dog is only a puppy, Nugget's speed (20 ft.) and other stats were originally lower than would be normal for his creature type. After his month and a half long stay with Marion Lavorre, his stats seem closer to those of a standard blink dog.
- Nugget appears to have spiritually succeeded Trinket, in the sense of becoming the brunt of Sam's jokes and derision towards animal companions.
- Ironically, both animals are owned by Laura
