It's a PUG LIFE for me!

Many of you may wonder to yourself--what the heck is her obsession with pugs? You may even think they are the strangest looking dogs--these were all thoughts that I had UNTIL I owned a pug. I got Henry James [Prince Henry James I] 5 years ago. My ex boyfriend and I decided that we wanted a dog--and our compramise was a pug. I had NO IDEA this this animal would change my life or that I could love anything as much as I do. Needless to say-we are no longer together and after sharing Henry for over a year-I won the custody battle on this one!

Through the years, Henry James has been there for me through the tears, the laughs, river trips, and the ragin' good times! Some might refer to Pugs as “needy”, but a better description would probably be “childlike”. They want what they want when they want it!--and Henry is absolutely NO exception <3

It's no lie when it says that a dog is a man woman's best friend!
