So amazing. The boa is beyond. I mean, there were times growing up when all I wanted to do was wear a boa. Now, to meet a pug that not only has a bright pink boa, but also a glorious headpiece is just fabulous. And that’s exactly what Aphrodiate is, and she sets the trends out in sunny Pasadena.
-This had to be her name, love at first sight.
Location: Pasadena, California
-I would imagine there is no shortage of catching rays out there which we all know pug love to do.
Adjectives: “Miss Aphrodiate is almost 5 years old. She is very sweet and dear. Has an old soul. Besides food, getting scratched and walks, she loves to wear jewelry and costumes, and be groomed! She is very ladylike! She sleeps with us in bed at night of course! (snores included) She has her own Facebook page too!”
-I think most will agree that being in the presence of a pug will only make you smile. You obviously notice a pug even from a distance, and you’re excited about seeing them up close; especially when you have your pug. I’d say at least two times a week I’m lucky enough to have a pug encounter that will instantly make any day better. There’s something to be said for that instant feeling of happiness. I’ve concluded it’s one of their many pug powers: a type of tractor beam that radiates high levels of puglove straight to your heart. My point being, I felt all of these wonderful things when I met the fabulous Aphrodiate. I mean, her Mom’s not kidding, she loves to dress up. This is just one of the many outfits in this lady’s wardrobe but Girl… not many pugs can pull off a boa and headpiece. Aphrodiate makes it look easy. If only, right?
To Aphrodiate’s Family, I love her sense of style and individuality. Thank you for instantly making my day better and my heart smile. Pugs and kisses always.
Pugs are the best. I look at these pictures and I’m reminded as to why I so desperately hope to come back as one in my next lifetime. Maybe I’m getting too far ahead of myself, but if I did, I’d be just like this pug here. Cassidee is her name and puggin’ is her game, and she’s holding it down out in sunny San Bernardino!
-When I think of her name in my head I hear it with a southern accent. Like yee-haa type thing? Anyone else? Anyone? …Bueller?
Location: San Bernardino, CA
-Random fact: the first McDonald’s in the world was in San Bernardino. There’s nothing better than a fresh batch of Micky D fries and a perfectly carbonated fountain soda. The little things…
Adjectives: “This is Cassidee aka Pig. She’s the sweetest, laziest, squooshiest, funniest animal ever.”
-Just a little slip of the tongue there… which is perfect too because it’s a pugs personality to be sticking their tongues out at the world. Like, “Pug Off.” That’s why being a pug is so great! Not to mention none of us care that our babies are extremely lazy. Don’t get me wrong the energy is there when they want it to be but, when we accepted puglove into our lives all of us knew or should have known that our new pets weren’t quite the athletic type. I wasn’t exactly thinking my pug will love to play fetch for hours someday is what I’m saying. I’m okay with the majority of Marlo’s time being filled with eating, sleeping, and loving me. And it sounds like Miss Cassidee is doing just fine with her time. Her nickname is pig so I assume she eats plenty; she makes people laugh and soaks in all the love they have to offer. Like I said, the life.
To Cassidee’s Family, I’m sure you make her laugh just as much as she does you. Cassidee is a very sweet girl and I’m very happy to have met her. Pugs and kisses always.
Try and tell me you’re not making gushy sounds of awe. You can’t, because any human with a soul knows this is one beautiful baby. This picture brings me back. But before we go back let’s go forward, meet Chulo and he’s down south in Georgia.
-Definition: a very precious pug.
Location: Dallas, Georgia
-Peaches and pugs help keep life sweet!
Adjectives: ”He loves to eat, play, and sleep. (In that order) he is a loving, kind, smart dog and he loves to be cuddled.”
- Holy Cannoli… instantly I’m reminded of how I went from dog-x to a pug. Puppy Chulo is like a pugdrug and I’m dangerously addicted. To be honest, I had always wanted a bulldog. Just seemed like my kind of breed. And I had only met a couple pugs prior to meeting my little miracle Marlo. But from the moment I saw him, his face, that pug puppy puss, I was but a helpless moth to his beaming rays of puglove. I held him in my arms, a piece of my heart ignited, and I knew he was the one for me. There’s something about a baby pug that makes us humans go crazy. I would be lying if I said the level of cuteness had nothing to do with me becoming the proud pug owner I am today. It had everything to do with it.
To Chulo’s Family, thank you for reminding me of that most special moment in time. We were all blessed the day we met our pugs; we are the lucky ones. Pugs and kisses always.
This looks like a sweet and gentle pug. The kind of pug that will nook up on a stranger’s foot for a pet or two. A loving pug that just lies around, or on top of you, and radiates puglove. This is Bentley and he’s fueling my pugflames all the way from Dallas.
-I immediately picture Bentley in a Bentley and the mental image is glorious.
Location: Dallas, Texas
-I’ve always wanted to go to Texas, and my favorite t-shirt says “Don’t Mess With Texas,” it’s awesome. My sister was born there too so I think it’s in my cards to love Texas. I love it even more now that I know Bentley’s there.
Adjectives: “He likes long naps, short walks, and plenty of snacks. Definitely a momma’s boy!”
-This sounds a lot like another pug I know… (Cough)(Marlo)(Cough)… Bentley’s Mom also told me that he’s 4 years old so he’s hit his plateau of puppy-pug wickedness. What I mean is that our babies only get sweeter with age. Pug puppies, although disgustingly adorable, are quite a handful. With time, these precious angels are less about the destruction of your belongings and more about loving the sh*t out of you. Why? Because that’s what pugs do best, and that’s all they have to do really. We are blinded by their love to the point where feeding them bacon isn’t cause for special occasion, it’s because in our minds they simply deserve it.
To Bentley’s Family, I imagine this baby has quite the life filled with air-conditioned naps, sunny walks, and delicious pork cuisine. Big love for this precious pug because even puglove is bigger in Texas. Pugs and kisses always.
Question: Have you ever seen a pug that looks uncomfortable? Take some time and think about it. I haven’t. Essentially the personal comfort of our baby is all that matters in the world. Case in point, Lady Elsa of Wiltshire.
-Perfect name for this pug and I’m excited she’s the first. Lady Elsa of Wiltshire has a noble ring to it too. I’m into it.
Location: Chippenham (Wiltshire), United Kingdom
-I can’t help but ask if the Lady Elsa and the Gentleman Charlie know each other? Something is telling me these two would be the perfect pug couple. Let’s make it happen.
Adjectives: “Elsa is my first pug. She is a witch in disguise and has me completely under her spell! She is true to pug form, adorable, funny and extremely stubborn!”
-I think what I love most about this enchanting pug is that you can tell by the picture she rules this nest. What Lady Elsa says goes, and Mom like the rest of us, is helpless under her pug spell. Elsa doesn’t like the word no; it’s her way or the highway, and we all know pugs are extremely stubborn. Stubborn to the point where I sometimes worry Marlo could be deaf, but he’s not. He’s just ignoring me. The thought to obey when I whistle and yell his name is suddenly not computing to him. I know I’m not alone in this. I’ve seen other pugs act this way. They turn on the “go pug yourself” attitude, and do what pugs do: whatever they want. It works. It works because we’re all a bunch of suckers.
To Elsa’s Family, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s a pug’s world and we are all just lucky enough to live in it. I wish I could be a visitor in Elsa’s world. I’m definitely under her spell and she doesn’t even know I exist, that’s some serious pug power. Pugs and kisses always.
Now that is a pug face if I ever saw one. And look at those paws! Someone’s been having some fun. Let’s meet Someone. This is Jackson and he’s blooming up north in Kingston!
-I always liked this name, even for us humans. And I like Jack so two names in one.
Location: Kingston, Ontario
-I’ve been to Kingston! Played a hockey game there a few centuries ago. Lovely place!
Adjectives: “He loves to go for drives, wear sweaters, to drink our Tim Hortons when we’re not looking, to chase around our cats and curl up in his daddy’s lap when he sits on the floor and they play video games together! … Loves to snuggle, snore, hog the bed, and tug on our pant legs while we walk and listening to Piano Music!! He does not like the hair dryer, vacuum, broom or Swiffer!”
-The only thing you don’t know about Jackson is that he’s 5 months old. That being said, we all know that this is one pug prince. He definitely rules his kingdom but really, what pug doesn’t? I love a pug with personality too. My point earlier being that Jackson is still a puppy and I don’t know about you but my pug as a puppy was something else. Maybe it’s because the description reminds me of my pug Marlo. Who quite honestly was spoiled rotten and defectively disciplined so… that one’s on me. It’s hard enough to say no to a pug face but a pug puppy? My heart can’t be responsible for such a task.
To Jackson’s Family, you and you’re baby are just beginning. So much puglove to be had; I’m excited for you. Pugs and kisses always.
What’s up Homie?! This face is pretty awesome in a human way. In a pug way he looks kind of scared and confused. But before we jump to any pugclusions, lets find out more about Max from the Midwest.
-Max is latin for greatest; making it a perfect name for a pug.
Location: Des Moines, Iowa
-A very hip and happening city.
Adjectives: “Max the pug is quite the dog, he loves food, and cuddling. He follows me everywhere and loves to run laps around our living room. He has an awesome personality and makes the cutest faces!”
-So like most guys from the middle states, he’s the pug next-door kind of pug. Max is pleasant, engaging, loving, and kind. He likes sports and junk food, but he keeps active so he’s still in shape; intelligent and knows how to tell a joke. Maybe this picture was taken after Max told an amazing pug story and he was waiting for a reaction. When all he got was a flash of light he was confused. One minute he’s chillin’ on the couch, the next he’s blinded. Or maybe he just saw someone with food. Both are highly feasible.
To Max’s Family, I wish I had a calendar of crazy Max faces. I can only image the looks you get. Lucky… Pugs and kisses always.
When I first read about this precious pug I giggled. Snoopy is his name and loving food and family is his game. I also feel for Snoopy because we both have a weakness for cheese.
-Never thought about it but a lot of the pugs I meet remind me of the character Snoopy. Wonder if he’s named after him?
Location: Saint-Petersburg, Russia
-This is amazing. Feeling the puglove from so far away.
Adjectives: “What can I say about him – always hungry, ready to sell his toys for a piece of cheese. Make all the people around smile =) loves to be a second pilot in a car. He is the most lovely part of our family.”
-Great description. My imagination starting going and there I was looking at a pug on the corner of Canal and Broadway with a sign saying, “Will sell toys for food.” Anyway, enough about me and more about Snoopy. He’s a baby pug and baby pugs always get what they want. They get what they want because we can’t help it. Some people think it’s crazy I wake up with a pug butt in my face but really, at the end of the day, how can you say no to a face like that? Not possible… I want to snuggle and cheese is too good not to share.
To Snoopy’s Family, pugs make great co-pilots in life and in cars. Snoopy seems like he would never steer you wrong and I know you have his back too. Pugs and kisses always.
I say angelic because he is. The story of Artie brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my heart. He is a guardian Angel sent from Pug Heaven and here’s why.
-Assuming his full name is Arthur, one of the meanings of Arthur is said to be rock. Makes sense too because Artie is the rock of his family.
Location: San Mateo, California
-Right outside of San Fran, pawesome.
Adjectives: “My wife lives with M.S. and has good and bad days…His entire existence seems to be to take care of her and he literally never leaves her side. He won’t play, eat, relax, or sleep unless she tells him she’s ok and that he doesn’t have to “work” he is totally focused on her, couldn’t be bothered by his little brother and sister’s antics, regulates the hell out of them when they get out of hand, and has the most amazing bond with my wife.”
-Talk about pulling on my heartstrings. Artie has helped his family through the roughest of times and continues to be the best pug he can be to his Mom. All dogs stay strong for us humans when we can’t. The intuition they have is something quite mystical. Always knowing what we’re thinking, they know before we do. Our babies do the best they can to take care of us, pugs especially. Pugs are healing dogs you see. I have always been told this and I know it is true. They heal our soul. They are our guardian angels.
To Artie’s Family, this is a very special post. We all know dogs are incredible, but when you hear about them in action it always hits your heart. Artie has touched all of us. Lots of love to you and your family. Pugs and kisses always.

This one time… I fell in love with a pug and his name was Charlie. Not only is he a beautiful Brit but he’s got the paws to prove it.
-Great name all around.
Location: Somerset, United Kingdom
-More specifically, Charlie lives on the Exmoor. Look it up, incredible. As is he.
Adjectives: “Charlie is funny and kind. He’s so gentle but he loves everyone and isn’t afraid of ANYTHING. He joins in with whatever I do especially if it involves long walks in the hills, chicken or cheese!”
-So you’re telling me there’s a pug who’s British, who lives on the coastal shire, is brave and loves cheese? Um, he’s like my dream man. Charlie is a total gentleman. His manners are impeccable. And the idea of a pug with a British accent excites me. If only pugs could talk…
To Charlie’s family, I’m not sure how you met Charlie but the Pug Gods have blessed you. I’m glad you both ended up together. Pugs and kisses always.
