..hopefully now you have West Side Story stuck in your head!
Wow, I can’t believe how long it has been since I posted. We have already been to two pug meetups, and although I have talked about them on Facebook & Twitter, I haven’t done a post yet. There are a lot of things that make pugs, pugs – the pushed in faces, the bulgy eyes, the small compact but solid bodies, the snorthing, the sneezing, but the most amazing characteristic to me is their total lack of aggression. You just never hear of a aggressive pug. I’m sure there have been incidents, but the number has got to be extremely small. I only mention this because that is what makes a pug meetup so appealing, to be able to let your pug loose in room filled with 30 others and KNOW there will be no incidents is an amazing thing. I might not have even gone to a pug meet up if Pixel had not been attacked at the dog park, but I couldn’t turn down an opportunity to let her play with abandon & know she was safe.
The first meetup we went to was in February, and it was like Pixel was one of the little kids let loose in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory – she was one happy little puglet. She was the youngest pug there, and she was chasing all the other pugs around. She was definitely a little terror!
The second meetup was in March (it’s once a month, in case you didn’t catch that!) and this time, she was NOT the youngest pug there. She started strong, and seemed to be wearing the other puppy out, but that puppy played it like Mark Wahlberg in The Fighter, she let Pixel wear herself out a little, and then she dominated.
So now we look forward each month to the pug meetups because I know Pixel will have a blast & be safe, and pugs are pugs!
