While in ubuntu, if you can find the puppy partition in ubuntu's file manager, mount it or double-click to open. Make sure you can navigate around the mounted partition. Then open a terminal and run #sudo update-grub again. I have noticed that Grub will check current mounted partitions when looking for additional operating systems.
