Social network for pugs and their people.
In the interest of full disclosure, I didn’t need another pug. Jack has been the perfect family member in every way. Plus, there’s a big difference between needs and wants so while I didn’t need one, I sure did want one. I kept an eye on various websites and checked in with Jack’s breeder hoping she would have another litter so I could snatch one of Jack’s younger siblings. A litter came last year but I was too slow to get one. It’s a tired cliché but timing really is…Continue
You ever look at your pug and wonder what in the hell is going thru their mind (if you're like me you may have even wondered if their brains are as wrinkled as their faces. If so, it would explain a lot about pug behavior)? For instance:
It doesn't matter how much carpet cleaner, deodorizer, etc I put on the carpet Jack will find a spot on the rug to dig at like the tastiest treat or the secret of the universe is hidden in there. Damage to carpeting is a very sore subject in my house.…Continue

I’m seeking investors to help me finance a television show called The Biggest Dog Loser. Ok, the title may need to be changed but I’m imagining a show where doggy trainers help man’s best friend to lose weight. I’d be happy to make Jack a contestant on the show because he needs to drop a couple pounds and I’m not sure I’m the right guy to be his trainer.
I took Jack to the vet last week for his annual round of shots and routine grooming. As soon as the vet said “let’s get you on the…Continue
Before deciding to add a pug I spent a year researching the best breed of dog for our family. I was a sucker for the West Highland Terrier and their coal black noses but the more I read about them the more I realized they were more anti-social than I am. All that white hair looked too high maintenance for me. I turned my attention then to the Dachshund but their spinal issues and my four kids told me it wouldn’t be a good mix. Then my eyes landed to an article on pugs and one year later we…Continue
