  • Also, I thought their fat wiggly bodies were unwieldy and clumsy
  • Plus, when they bark, it sounds very rough and almost hoarse and they reminded me of those annoying yippy yappy lap dogs that get on my nerves because I think of them as pampered and no purpose pooches that just are a waste of space and use up oxygen
  • I know that Pugs were once considered pets for royals, and I can understand why because they are so compact, and they say that certain Chinese Emperors had them hidden inside their long sleeves to guard them against assassins because they would bark and attack whoever came close to their masters if they sensed that they were evil and planned to do something malicious

      I have a good friend that owns two Pugs and since I am over there almost all the time visiting her, I have to say that I have grown fond of them because they are totally and justifiably adorable. And I have to admit that at first I didn’t care for their weird squashed faces and large drooling tongues that turned up like some weird broad pink snake that bobs up and down with each hastily sucked in breath. Also, I thought their fat wiggly bodies were unwieldy and clumsy. And yes, just so you know, they are not the most graceful creatures ever created. They will roll and fall when they get excited and it’s just funny to watch them sit because they are so top heavy that they have to lean on one hip because their bodies just aren’t made to sit directly on the floor. Plus, when they bark, it sounds very rough and almost hoarse and they reminded me of those annoying yippy yappy lap dogs that get on my nerves because I think

      of them as pampered and no purpose pooches that just are a waste of space and use up oxygen.

      But once I got used to their strange physique and slobbering countenance, I had to admit there was a certain charm in their bugging brown eyes and round sausage bodies. Plus it helped that they were so affectionate. Her bigger Pug is perhaps one of the most friendly and sweet pooches alive. She will literally try to snuggle against any open crevice in your body. Plus, her ears are super silky and just feels so soft and smooth against your fingers. I know that Pugs were once considered pets for royals, and I can understand why because they are so compact, and they say that certain Chinese Emperors had them hidden inside their long sleeves to guard them against assassins because they would bark and attack whoever came close to their masters if they sensed that they were evil and planned to do something malicious. I think that they were an early furry alarm system and that was ...


      • why they were favorites for so many centuries. Like I said, I can see why they were suck a big hit back in the day when small dogs were a novelty, and where these dogs were breed for nothing more than for pleasure. But I can see why they are still popular after all these years. They have short but very silky hair and they have the most befuddled and adorable expressions. And they genuinely like people, which is a definite plus if you have small children. They are very sweet and they don’t have a mean bone in their chubby bodies. And that is why I think so many people are drawn to them. They ask for so little and yet they still give so much.

        Yet, despite all that, honestly, I don’t know if I’d ever get a Pug as a pet. And I’m not saying this because I don’t like them. On the contrary, I do like them because they are such rollie pollie cuties that are very affectionate and very loyal to their owners. They

        are almost comical in manners and often have this very sweet and adorable look of utter confusion as if they are wondering why they were ever created. But the main reason why I wouldn’t own one is because I have always been attracted to larger dogs. I don’t know. I think that small animals should be cats and dogs should be the protectors and guardians. Not that a Pug doesn’t feel that they are big and bad enough to tackle a dinosaur, because believe me they do! I’m just saying that I would find them more as an amusing pet rather than a pet that I would want to own. But I do recommend them for people who live in apartments or where space is an issue. They are compact and will be happy almost everywhere. And since they don’t need a lot of exercise they are perfect for those of us that take a more leisure look at life. Overall, I do find them very cute and I think they will make excellent pets for a lot of people out there.
