Although, the face in this photo is nothing but cute!

This is really the face you see when you try to do anything without your dog. Once you have a dog, there's no privacy; you're never alone!

Look at the shock on this little Pug's face. And don't you feel that way about exercise as opposed to extra fries? While our dogs can't have them, and they're not the best for us either, we can't help but love some extra fries. Exercise? Eh, not so much. But we gotta do it . . . and take our dogs along.
Gotta pee on everything. For some dogs, that's their motto. You go for a walk, and they have to stop every second to sniff and then pee on something else. What are you gonna do? If it hasn't been peed on yet, might as well pee on it.
Tired Pug is tired. This is how we all feel on days when we don't get enough sleep and still have to get up for work. Luckily for our dogs, they get to sleep about 50 percent of the day. Yup, we're jealous, too.
Some dogs shed more than others, but if you own a dog, there's more than likely going to be some fur lying around. Pugs aren't the worst shedders around, but they do still shed, especially seasonally. No outfit is complete without some Pug hair.
