    Who Loves Pugs?

    I have been photographing the Pug Parade for the past few years.

    You have a grey, KT?

    I've always wanted one, but alas - no fenced in yard. I don't think I'd want a sight hound without one.

    Pugs rock. I've had three. They all had major health problems, unfortunately. We have a cat now. Don't have to walk him. Just dust him off once in a while, if he sleeps too long.

    And yes, you don't want one unless you can keep it in a fenced yard...you don't want a sight hound running loose unless you want to lose him.

    So you adopted yours from a rescue group? I've been talking to a few of the groups around here for years. I've even helped them do events at malls and such. It's enough exposure to keep me happy until I can afford a fence.

    Thanks....they have an absolute wonderful temperment too. Cool dogs, but not hyper like some breeds. It's nice that you can not "have" to take them to exercise "every day" if you don't have time.

    I generally get them to the dog park about 4 times per week and let them in back yard as often as they are inclined. They DO love laying around on the couch a lot though.

    I've heard that about Greyhounds... that they are really couch potatoes... and every one I've met has been so sweet! very loving dispositions.

    Yup...very sweet and loveable and VERY LAZY.

    There is a good reason why people call them "The world's fastest couch potato".

    I learned something new today. But do check out that movie. Anthony Hopkins did a great job. It is a real life story about a kiwi who took a 1920's Indian motorcycle and broke a bunch of speed records.
