the socially awkward pug

Pug beats to the sound of his own drum. Bless his heart. He loves being around people, but if you put him around other dogs he's either a bit bossy or distant.  A few weekends ago we invited a furry friend down for a little "yappy hour" while at the lake.

meet bentley. he's just the sweetest thing you ever did meet. i love his curls. he's got a little adrian grenier hair thing going on. and did i mention this dog is sweet? oh he is.

and here's mr. socially awkward, who can you tell is not loving sharing his yard?

or his lounge chair.

"mom he's in my chair!!"

he just doesn't get the sharing thing.

my chiuaua/shi-tzu mix is just like that! she likes other dogs, but not if they're in HER house. she has a queen bee mentality.

gotta love 'em!

Oh my God I love your dog! I would so love to see he and Ida Claire together!

Poor Pug! Have you ever seen the children's book Unlovable by Dan Yaccarino? I just read it to the class. I think it would make you laugh! It's about a poor little pug who thinks he's unlovable. :)

Oh, I can relate. We have a sweet little Scottie, whom lets anyone hold and pet her, but she just doesn't want to play. At the park she runs to the people. Pippi doesn't share well either.

Ha! That is so Chief! I have tried taking her to the dog park but she will just sit on my lap and soak up attention from the people. She could care less about the other dogs!

Hmmmm, sounds just like a certain pug I know. You know how some people are "people" persons? Well, Gidget is a "people" dog. She loves people but doesn't care much for other dogs. She always has to be the one in charge when she's around my parents' dogs.
