Check This Out!

Mom says she has known for a long time that us pugs are smarter than most people realize. It is good to see that Time Magazine has figured that out as well, by putting us on the cover. Here is a funny story that mom likes to tell that proves her point.

Before Lucky and me, there were the pugs that came before, Muffie and Bridget. One day, Muffie came over to the sofa to see Bridget lying on mom's right hip. Muffie studied mom for a moment, then ran over to the chair in the front of the house. Jumping on the chair, she barked out the window. Bridget jumped off mom's lap and ran to join Muffie on the chair. Muffie jumped off the chair, ran over to mom, jumped on the sofa and laid down in the spot that Bridget just vacated. When Bridget returned, her spot was taken.

Now tell me that is NOT strategy and manipulation at it's best.

I don't know if you know this or not but my best doggy friends are pugs (Ace, Fenway, and Isabella) and I have to bark that they have raised my I.Q. just by hanging around with them every week! Pugs are pawsome and you are one of the best!

Great story! Better than the article, which had not one word @ pugs. The converstations with the ape were precious though.

Why people don't realize you all are quite smart, I don't know... we've all been training humans for centuries now.. (well in your case only years--so as good as you are imagine the intelligence!)

My pugs do that too! Especially when one pug has a toy that another wants.
