You Know You're a Pug lover If...

Tuesday, 18 February 2014 19:40 by emilyw

1. You have more dog beds, chew toys, collars, leashes, harnesses, and dog crates than you have pugs.
2. You meet other people with pugs, and remember their pug's name within 30 seconds, but don't get the owner's name until you've met them 2 or 3 times.
3. You don't think twice about trading licks of an ice cream cone with your pug.
4. Your parents give up on grandchildren and start to refer to your pugs as 'your kids' or 'your children.' (bonus: they start to call them 'our granddogs.')
5. Ninety percent of your internet connection time goes to pugs (seeing what's new when you enter “pug” into the browser, reading up on multiple lists, checking out photos, video’s and faqs).
6. You have hundreds of pictures of your pugs on your desk at work and in your wallet, but none of your family or yourself.
7. No one wants to ride in your car because they know they'll get dog hair on their clothes.
8. You reach into your pockets for change, and liver treats, dog kibble, and pickup bags fall all over. (bonus: you've done this in a classy establishment.)
9. You've had long meaningful discussions with your friends on the best way to trim your pug's nails, but have never had a manicure or pedicure in your lifetime.
10. Books and movies are ruined for you if the pug references are incorrect.
11. The highlight of your day is spending time with your pug.
12. You watch simply awful movies because a pug is either featured in a cameo scene or there's a 3-second camera shot during a crowd scene.
13. All of your clothes have pug hair on them, even when they come back from the laundromat or dry cleaners.
14. The only thing your friends, colleagues, and passing acquaintances say to you when they see you is, "how are the pugs?" or "how many pugs do you have now?"
15. Your photo Christmas cards feature your pug(s) (humans optional).
How many are you guilty of?
