Deep Thoughts...hobbits and pugs
At times, many of us pugs tend to resemble bats, Gremlins, Stitch from that Disney movie, and even sometimes our fellow dog pal, the Boston Terrier. Sure we can even be cat-like on occasion, but in my opinion, we have a lot in common with Hobbits. You know, those short creatures resembling humans in the J. R. R. Tolkien stories. I've observed them many times as my parents seem addicted to the Lord of the Rings movies.
Here's my case. Granted the physical similarities aren't outstanding, but we are both short and stocky. Oh, and hairy (think feet). We are not thought to be all that active or adventurous, but we certainly can be! Well, I've saved the best for last. Probably the most compelling likeness is our obsession with food. Don't you wish we could eat SEVEN times a day? Yes, thank you. I'll have Breakfast, Second breakfast, Elevensies, Luncheon, Afternoon tea, Dinner, and Supper.
While I dream of living the life of a Hobbit, tell me what pugs remind you of most.
