Once you meet a pug for the first time, that’s usually all it takes. You’ll never be the same. Whether you own one personally or you’re trying to get all the info you can get before purchase, you came to the right place to explore.
Hey, I’m Blake—fellow pug owner and enthusiast. Our dedication is to give you only the best content to help you, entertain you, educate you, and inform you all about pugs.
As you know, pugs have this unapologetic sense of self that butters you up right away. My love for pugs began when I was 12 years old. My best friend got a new puppy—a wrinkly little pug named Bosco. From the beginning, he was a little bundle of hilarious entertainment for us.
Bosco lent years of memories, finally passing at the ripe old age of 15. He couldn’t see because of glaucoma. He had long since gone deaf. He napped more frequently than he ever did. But none of that ever took his spunk away.
Single-handedly, he created a soft spot in my heart for pugs everywhere.
Meet Sid, My Box of Rocks
I had expectations for my pug-to-be. After all, I had spent a while contemplating what they would be like. Of course, Bosco was my main example, and I knew he was fantastic. I didn’t know when—I simply knew eventually—I would have one to call my own.
As luck would have it, our pug owning days came sooner than we anticipated. An older woman that my partner knew had a yard full of pugs that her husband left upon his passing. That included a new litter of unexpected puppies. The poor woman was overwhelmed.
Our beautiful rescue dog had died a few months before this, and we weren’t sure we were ready to welcome a new dog to the house. But seriously, how could you pass up this face?
It didn’t take long before an eight-week-old pug puppy sat between my partner, our four children, and myself. We each thought of a name to put it into a hat, and pulled out the winner—Sid. The cross-eyed sloth on Ice Age inspired the name, so I’m sure you can see how it relates.
While I knew the puppy stage would be hard, nothing quite prepared me for him. Difficult was an understatement. He was a total pain to potty train, he tore everything up, and worse—it seemed like he just wasn’t smart enough to catch on to any form of discipline we tried. (Poor guy!)
So, we did what we thought would help. We got Charley, our beautiful, intelligent German Shepherd to be his “motherly figure”. Within days, and I mean days, it was like Sid was a totally new dog. He went outside to potty, he behaved, and best of all—he had a new playmate to romp around with.
All he needed was a smarter leader to help him since he’s not the brightest crayon in the box. These days, Sid is the best version of himself. He is loyal to a fault, super cuddly, extremely silly, and a joy to be around. With Sid and Charley’s dynamic, there is never a dull moment around my house.
Sid recently found his new love—chickens. We call him our “chicken keeper.” He is always coming out to the coop to check on them and follow them around. They don’t seem to mind him, either. So, now he has a flock of friends to keep him busy.
Having Sid is a new adventure every day that comes with its extreme highs and not-so-highs. We wouldn’t trade him for the world. He has brought his own brand of individuality to our family, and we were lucky to know him.
