I'll start by saying that Sangmu is a very fit pug. We're very careful about her treat consumption, give her measured amounts of food and take her on regular walks. So yesterday certain pug mommy thought, "Hey, I bet Sangmu would like to go jogging with me!" I had never taken her before. She started off well, bobbing along beside me and smiling the way pugs do. We jogged through the hilly neighborhood and that's when she began to tire. She took a rest on a lawn with her belly on the cool grass, legs stretches out behind her like a frog. It reminded me of when she was a puppy and we walked up another very steep street and she grew so tired that I had to carry her home. I sincerely hoped that I wouldn't have to carry her this time. Although she's trim, she isn't 10 pounds anymore. Luckily though, she recovered and trotted all the way home. When we got there she drank a great deal of water (splashing it all over the floor in the process) and flopped down in front of the air conditioning vent. She was beat. After a nap however, she was happier than she had been all day. I think We'll go jogging again...just not as far.

Poor baby! Some dogs aren't though and that's fine! Little Milo sounds really sweet =)

I wish Milo could go for long walks or runs. We ran in a field once but he started coughing and hacking and we had to stop. He loved running though, just not physically able. :(

That is almost and oxymoron, isn't it? lol I'm glad that there are other pugs out there that exercise frequently! =)

LOL...love it! A jogging pug, that's almost an oxymoron, isn't it? But I know that look. When I take my girls for a walk, they just love it. Thanks for sharing Sangmu's jog; keep us updated! :0)

Our Hektor does a regular 4 to 5 mile walk a day, just not at present in the heat. We are lucky as we live in a maritime climate which really never gets very hot we spend a great deal out walking. I think that Hektor would run but I am past the age for that and he goes much better walking mostly at his own pace. I wish he could be regarded as trim but he ain't.
