Mom had always set out to get a black pug, in fact the only color that made sense for my name, was black. She looked and looked and everywhere she looked, it seemed she was greeted with a world of fawn. Don't get me wrong, we love us some fawn pug, but it begs to question....what's in a color?
Let me take you back to when I was a wee little pug, I was only 3 months old and walking in the park. Well actually I was biting the leash, mom's jeans, playing tug with the leash, chewing on rocks...mostly making mom wish she had gotten a cat. While walking around the park, a woman happened by with a fawn and a black pug. She looked at me with mom's Uggs in my mouth and uttered, "that looks familiar!" Mom inquired and she stated that her black pug was crazy, wild and full of energy while her fawn one was lazy. This made my mom wonder...what did I get myself into? Skip ahead another month, we're in our first round of puppy school (yep that's right...first of many to come) and a woman knew a pug owner who also had a black and fawn combo. She too stated the black pug was way more active and crazy than her fawn. Once again mom cursed all those websites, and pug books she read that stated pugs were lazy and liked to dress up.
So over my 7 months of life, I've met many a pug....from fawn to black, brindle and even albino. So I ask what color are you? Do you think you're lazy or crazy? Do you think it has anything to do with our colors...or is it our personality? Do you think it's in our gender? Or is it an age thing?
For the record....I'm a black 7 month old hermaphroditic pug who likes to run, hates to dress up and can keep up with a whole pack of dogs 10 times bigger than me at my daycare. I'm 18.25 lbs of pug fury, that breaks the mold and then likes to eat the mold for dinner!! I'm as feisty as they come....care to share your stats?
