Social network for pugs and their people.
I just finished reading "Clara: The Early Years: The Pug Who Ruled My Life" by Margo Kaufman (1999), and it really made me reflect on my life with pugs. I have no human children, and focus most (ok, all) of my affection on my dogs, and I can't imagine my life without them. They accompany me to my studio all the time, although they show no interest in learning how to draw. They are rarely alone. One of them fanagled his way into our bed within the first few months that we got him, and now sleeps under the covers every night. But as I was thinking about this, and about how so many dog trainers say that is the worst thing you can let a dog do, I realized how comforted I am to have my furry love pressed up against my legs every night. There snoring is a comfort, and we laugh at the multitude of other noises that come out of their bodies. What is it about a pug that endears a true pug owner to them for the rest of their lives. It was my husband who wanted our first pug, but now I would never own any other type of dog. They have me and my husband wrapped around their little puggie fingers.
