Pugs Sniffing Butts – The Smart Choice

I feel compelled to address a subject near and dear to the heart of every pug (and every other breed of dog, I wager) and that is the act of sniffing another dog’s butt. I am truly sorry, dear reader, if I am offending any of you by broaching this subject, but it is one of our most basic functions.

 You humans look at facial expressions, smiles, teeth, figure, hair, eyes, and practically every other human feature, and then listen to voice intonation, accent, and volume in order to form an opinion about a person. You decide if he/she is friendly, attractive, interesting, smart, nasty, or unappealing – the entire gamut of assessments – and finally, you shake hands. We of the canine species, however, sniff one another’s butts. You would be amazed and shocked by how much we discover in that sniff…an entire personality DNA lies within that tiny orifice! We know in an instant if this is a potential buddy, love interest, enemy, or threat. And guess what else? We are never wrong.

 More often than not, you humans form the wrong first impressions and waste a lot of time by doing the visual or auditory scan. Instead, if you would just take a few seconds to sniff his/her butt, your impressions would be point on.

 Take it from your pug spokesman, butt sniffing is not something to be eschewed, but rather, embraced. We’ve been doing this since the dawn of time, and it eliminates most of the guesswork when choosing friends.

 Respectfully submitted,

This shot speaks for itself. Note the baseball shirts we're all wearing. I think this is great advertising for the Cotuit Kettleers baseball team.

A Pug Takes On

Really, I am not a whiny pug and I do enjoy my life, for the most part, but it does seem as if I always have something to complain about. This isn’t a complaint, so much as it is a query. I don’t understand why humans, specifically pug owners, love to see large numbers of us together, frolicking in playful abandon. I can’t help but ask the question, “Aren’t I enough?”
I was with Mom and then Dad, without Lizzard, and they seemed to be perfectly content with just me. I filled her days, and then his, with joy, love, and entertainment. So then why do I always hear Mom saying how she would love ten or more of us? I cannot understand that thinking, when supposedly I am everything she could desire in a pug.

More confusing is how humans usually choose to marry or live with one person for their lifetime, trying to remain faithful to and happy with that one person, but as pug owners feel compelled to increase and multiply their pug herd. Why ever would Mom dream of having a brace of us?

This phenomenon occurs at the dog park too. Mom gets all excited and silly acting when she sees a bunch of pugs there. She naturally assumes we will all love one another and want to be best friends. Frankly, I couldn’t care less about a bunch of hyperactive mouth-breathing pugs running around. It is a kind of“pugism,” don’t you think, that pug owners practice?

I’ve gotten used to Lizzard but that doesn’t mean I want another one taken into our fold. Mom, aren’t I enough? You are enough for me.

Respectfully submitted,

Mason

I dressed up for you (humiliating for me).

I even posed for you. I did it all  because I love.
