Pugs: Loyal Companions
Why own a Pug?
Pugs are loyal, funny, and have human like personalities. I am a pug parent. I never thought in my lifetime I would own a pug. At first, when I saw pictures of pugs, my reaction was "these dogs are ugly, how can anybody like pugs." During the summer of 2002, I experienced a horrible event in my life that took my laughter, faith, and loyality temporarily away from me. But that was about to change...
In 2003, my co-worker Susan, asked me if I was interested in purchasing a pug. After looking at some photos of pugs, I could not imagine looking at an ugly creature, at least I thought. One day she brought a baby pug (puppy) to work to show me, in hopes I would be interested to purchase him and take him home with me. Puppy needed a home and a family to grow with. The first time I set eyes on "puppy" I could not resist, I fell in love with him. By the way, I forgot to mention that Pugs when they are puppies look much cuter than as adults. As soon as I held "puppy" he yawned and layed on my shoulder, I felt happiness, my emotions took over. When I purchased "puppy" I had to decided what name would be appropriate, a name that I could live with or that has meaning. It took about a week for me to decide on a name. I finally decided to name him Ozzie which means "Diminutive of Oswald: Divine power." Divine power is what I needed in my life.
Ozzie brought me happiness in many ways, he comforts me when I really need it, he makes me laugh especially when he allows me to dress him up and he has human like personalities. He behaves like a child, he knows what "no" means and yet he tries to get a away with certain things. He also knows what "snacks" means. I noticed Ozzie needed a partner to play with so....then came puppy #2, Chico. Continue
