Rule of Cuteness #34: If your tail curls up, it’s cute

"Peewee" pup was adopted to become a full-time companion.

Do you think there was a little sign at the pet adoption place that said: "Best muzzle-pow-sche evar."

I think serhe.


Lindsay G., Thanks for adding ANOTHER tail rule.

    its all too much to take.
    I give.

  16. eeeeeeeee! I saw a 10-month old pug puppeh at the vet’s last night! His name was Roland… and he was as cute as this puppeh, and all wiggly and giving lots of keeses…

  17. The paws! The paws!

  18. ceejoe,

    His name was “Roland”? ROLAND??!!?? Sweet Jesus, that’s perfect, lol! All roly-poly, plus a bit stuffy. 🙂

  19. Hi Ho Tailio little puppy!

  20. My dog is not a pug, but he has a tail that curls up and it’s adorable!!! One of his very best features. I <3 it!

  21. Adorable!

  22. “Roland”! LOL! The names some people give their pets just crack me up. And I must say, the more I see little pugs in C.O. the cuter I think they are. I’m a convert to the pugaliciousness!

  23. my cat is a sphere says:

    I once met a pug named Harriet, which I think is the best ever pug name. Roland is right up there, though.

  24. lol, yes his name was Roland! I turned around to leave, and he was standing just to my right, and I exclaimed, well, look at you Cutie-pie!
    He was all wiggly-butt, with his little curly tailio wagging all over, and leeking and giving keeses to me when I went to pet him…

  25. Cricket says:

    I’m not the biggest fan of the pug, but I have to say this one is just adorable! I think my head may essplode!

  26. Like Cricket I am not usually much of a pug fan (just toooOOoooo homely, sorry) BUT in this case I’m making an exception. He’s just begging to be snorgled and squoooozed. I can’t stop smiling!

  27. At our house we’ve coined the term “pugly” to describe something that’s so ugly it’s cute. This is why.

    Oh, and not to throw a wrench in the works or nothin’, but the pug-curl in the tail is caused by a spinal disorder. >.<

    When it’s just the tail, they’re lucky.

  28. Awwwwwwww, man! Hee! I cannot *wait* to get a pug! 🙂

  29. OMG the paw splayage! nawm nawm nawm…

  30. HeidStar says:

    Pugs…they’re pretty much the putti of the dog world aren’t they?

  31. mmmrrowfff!

  32. SPLAT!

  33. “SAFE!”

  34. Claudia says:

  37. Shannon Johnson says:

    This little guy looks like he auditioned for the Precious Moments stuff.

  38. He looks like a very comfortable pillow. “Will you be my pillow, puggy?” (I’m too dense to figure out how to put a link to that post about being a pillow . . )

  39. leah b. says:

    I know I am to cute says little pugnious pup, but I can’t help that I was born this way, Now put the camera down and snorgle me

  40. Well said, HeidiStar! And I’m sure the greatest painter of pugsly putti ever, Rowff-phael, would agree.
