We decided to get a pug.
We named her China.
And no one told us that adopting a pug is very much like adopting a two year old.
Pugs are very curious, i.e. you will need to elevate your kitchen trash can from day one. This also means that your pencils, remote controls, fishing lures and other various items are no longer safe, because pugs are curious about how things TASTE. They are especially fond of candy:
Yes. She is holding a Dum Dum and licking it.
Pugs are also very fond of different textures, like mud:
Also, it is a very little known fact that pugs actually evolved from birds. They like to perch:
They also gain weight around their middle like I do.
Another little known fact: they have a tiny bit of sloth in their DNA. They apparently require an extraordinary amount of sleep, and they will literally fall asleep wherever they are:
Fun Fact number 877: PUGS ARE LOUD.
They FART they SNORE they SNORT they WHINE they CHUFF they make other undefinable noises.
ALL. THE. TIME.
You can Google a sound byte, it's a little late for me.
But aside from all of these little things, she is absolutely great with the kids, very patient and takes household changes very well.
We love our pug!
