I believe I’ve found the way to create world peace. Get a puppy.
But not just any old puppy. You need a Pug puppy.
Little Sister recently lost her beloved poodle (RIP Lance!) and the ache just wouldn’t go away. She saw a Facebook post that one of her friends had a litter of pups and couldn’t resist the puppy pull.
Now, you have to understand; we were raised with German Shepherds. BIG dogs! I am guilty of making comments about little dogs just being cats with dog tags. But that was before I met Eco.
Eco – as in Echo, spelled incorrectly, not as in Ecological. Little Sister does things like that.
We recently enjoyed a day at the beach with wee Eco. It was a slow start for his first day at the shore.
Eco wasn’t really “into” much of the whole water, sand thing. But he really shone later on in the day. We like to go walk about after soaking all the sun we can handle. It’s nice to move around, see the local shops, maybe get some deals. It usually takes about an hour and we grab a snack before heading back to the parking lot and hit the road for home.
Unless you are with Eco.
Then it takes A LOT longer.
Little Sister bought a sarong and used it as a pup carrier, since it was too hot to let him walk on the sidewalk, and let’s face it, someone would step on him, then they would have pug all over their sandals. It would be a disaster.
Finally we shake off the spectators when this happens!
We’ve moved about 20 feet – just to give you some perspective. Again, we move along, after answer what will be the same three questions; 1. What kind of dog is it? (He’s a Pug) 2. Is he full grown? (No he’s only 8 weeks old) 3. What’s his name? (Eco)
Then we decide to pop in to a store, having found something that catches our eye!
Now we’ve got store clerks fawning over him. Let’s completely forget the fact that dogs aren’t likely welcome in the shop. It’s a puppy! It’s a Pug! It’s Eco! Even while sleeping, completely adorable!
Ok back on the street. Let’s move!
Second Born Son wanted to experiment. Was the attraction the puppy, or the owner?
Needless to say, he slept all the way home!
Peace Pugs A Chance!
