After talking about getting a dog for about a year with the girls, and researching Boston Terriers and Pugs, we adopted one last week. The girls were hoping for a black pug puppy, I was hoping for an older pug which needed a home. Pete was game for whatever. We found an older one, and we all love her so much! I am so glad to both help an adult dog and not have the crazy puppy vibe in the house right now. I love puppies, but you know what I mean. Maybe a pug puppy in a couple years. I love her fawn color, she really is so cute, and I am not just saying that because she is ours. I was willing to adopt an adult pug with issues but fortunately she has none and was very loved at her old house. Her previous owner is elderly and her health and limited mobility was making pet ownership really hard.
She came with the name Angelina, which of course we have kept. The girls added the middle name of Meatloaf. She is 7 and has the sweetest personality. The cats are displeased, but are coming around. She doesn't know they don't like her, I have to break it to her gently. They are slowly meeting each other under my watchful gaze. Cat's claws and pug's bugling eyeballs are not a good mix. She's used to cats (and other pugs) sleeping with her, so she's game. I do think the cats will sleep with her at some point. Maybe.
