  1. I’ve seen a boat-load of obese pugs, but I just thought it was because the animal owners loved them so much that they spoiled them. I didn’t for once think it was a condition. Huh.

    The most fascinating fact for me was that they were considered a holy animal by the Tibetan monks.

    Overall, this was a fascinating article. Thanks for writing it!

  2. My daughter and just watched two pugs while their owners were on vacation. So much fun. One sure had a personality though, really did not want to go outside. Still fun to watch though.

  3. I just love pugs, they are so adorable. I would love to get a pug ring or that cute pillow, they are on my holiday list for sure!
