No not in the usual way, but he or she is still a dangerous dog. You see these funny, cute, strange looking little things have a secret weapon. They are like a drug, they are addictive, think of them like chocolates, you have one and then you must have another. If you are addicted to Pugslife, you will be aware that very few Pugs live as singletons, most have siblings whether related to or not.
Mum or Dad got one and then after finding what great little dogs they have, go and get another.

This can be a problem, if you have a good dog, in this I mean one who does what he or she is told, doesn't pee everywhere and generally is a peer beyond price, you get another one and it is totally different. Well if you are a parent you will not be shocked by this, none of your children are the same, but if you have no children you may be surprised at how many different natures you can get from dogs who look sort of similar.

I know that when I lost my two previous Pugs, I wanted a dog who would not remind me too much of the other two, and boy did I get exactly what I wanted. The one thing I learnt by that experience is that I am not capable in having more than one so I am having to curb my addiction.

So what I wanted to say at the end of this Blog is that if you don't mind I have adopted some of yours.

Thank you

PUGS are definitely addictive. We are on our first and would only consider having pugs now. But I don't know if we could cope with more than one as ours must have attention 24/7 - she is either on top of one of us or at least beside us all the time. she doesn't know the meaning of "alone time" or "privacy". If she is kept out of the bathroom or bedroom she bangs really loudly on the door with her foot (it sounds like a person knocking!) or howls. We've now decided we need a larger sofa and a king size bed as there is never enough space for the three of us. Our sleep is constantly disrupted as she spreads her love between us throughout the night by moving from one side to the other eventually ending up lying in my husband's arms on his shoulder or on the pillow above him draped on his head like a fur hat, which is not required in the tropical climate we live in. Then you add to this the required amount of playing chase, hide and seek, fetch ball, play flight and the list goes on that must occur a couple of times every day and the walks that also must occur, I can't imagine coping with any more of these dynamos. I'm in awe of those of you with multiples. We are going to have to stick to lavishing all our love on one beautiful girl :) PS: there are some fantastic ads by an Indian mobile phone network company (Vodafone/Hutch) in India starring pugs which are fantastic. See this link to some of them in youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qedh62-LYiU

We have had Pugs for the last 11 years. One point there were 7 adult Pugs and a 15 year old Shar Pei. Pet access door to the yard was a must! We are hovering at 4 Puggies right now but we are involved with www.rescuepugs.com and 3 of them be are rescue kids. I keep seeing them pop up on the Adopt me page. I think we are going to need a bigger home and bed. I have to move pugs to roll over as it is.

I think I need a sponsor then so I can abstain!
Comment by The Wee Woman on March 23, 2010 at 5:36am
I think we just have, Karen.

Well we started out with one pug and he was lonely so we got another male pug for him to play with. Then of course it would be nice to have a girl so we acquired Tia our silver pug with a little pink harness. It is so entertaining to watch them chase each other around the house, to enjoy relaxing with 3 pugs contentedly draped over or snuggled up with a human. And at night there is a human and pug in each bed.

So do we need to start a Pugs Anonymous??

Oh Helena you hit the nail on the head. Pugs are the most addictive thing ever!!! I can't get enough of my puggies and I buy everything pug I find. My two are as different as night and day. Puga the fawn and first born I call my perfect pug. Pixie my second born I call psyco pug. I used to ba a "cat person" too but since the pugs and now the two Boston Terriors we rescued my 2 cats have be driven to the basement, poor things. The cats used to hate each other but they have been forced to form a bond out of necessity.
Yes I am addicted to all things Pug and don't care....lol

Do not a fisher teach your dog to be, dangerous pugs!

Our little friends are very addictive!! I can't imagine life without a pug now....and I was a "cat-person". They bring so much joy and laughter to our lives, as well as amazing companionship. I have always loved pugs but now that I have Daisy in my life I really understand why they are such wonderful friends.

"Yes it is so hard to watch one of out beloved pets leave us.  I stayed with all mine till the end, and it is so hard, but I think they feel us there, and it makes it so much easier for them in the end.  Or at least I hope it does. "
