OK, after celebrating my 1,000th post with cocktails this weekend we're back with a month of pugs.   I'm a bit prejudiced, but I completely understand when people mistakenly think of them as 'little dogs'.  The motto for the breed is "Multum In Parvo", which translates as "much in a small space" because they are big dogs, trapped in a little dog's body.  
My little guy runs right up to the Rottweiler,  the Shepherd, the Great Dane, and feels a kindred spirit with them.  On the other hand, he'd like to have one as a pet.  Because, he truly doesn't accept his 'dog' status.  Whatever you can say about how they breed these dogs to extreme (literally no snout, blocky body, wrinkly face, etc) you can't deny the appeal of those eyes.  They seem to understand so much.

I am postponing the start of my Thursday Class and Saturday Class till NEXT week.  So - lucky you, there's still time to email me at kcareymac@hotmail.com to sign up :)  Can't wait!

  1. You've mastered the pug's coloring perfectly! You've got the expression spot on... I would love to be able to render such soulful eyes like these!

  2. Many breeds are bred to extreme to the detriment of the dog's health. That I hate. But they are so beautiful, aren't they? You brought so much life into these eyes, Kelley. Great job!
