Pugs Are A Good Dog

Its time for a little humble pie.

Yesterday, Fred Wallace and I made fun of a certain breed of dog, specifically the Pug.

That resulted in howls of protest, no pun intended from the owners of this obviously beloved breed of snoot challenged dog.

Fred if I recall described the pug as hideous and I believe I stated the dog was somewhat ugly.

Needless to say owners of Pugs rallied to support their dogs stating in no uncertain terms this is not only an affectionate and loyal breed of dog, but a loving and caring companion as well.

So with that in mind, here is an ode to the Pug, to get Fred and I off the hook for daring to ridicule what history has shown us to be a truly remarkable breed of dog.

There was once a Pug from Nantucket,
Who said Fred and Jim should stuff it.
Of or pedigreed breed
You and Fred should take heed
that a Pug s a nice dog indeed.
