Pug 4 Life

Yo, when you pick a pooch, ya just gotta pick a pug
‘Cause a pug gives a hug that’s as sweet as a love drug
Ain’t no lies, I’m the prize, with the Marty Feldman bug-eyes
Scopin’ you, rope-a-dopin’ you, sincerely hopin’ you
Take me home to your dome so I never have to roam alone

Ralph P. says: “The pictures I sent are of my sister’s three year old pug Moose. She is a daily viewer or your site and loves the amount of pug pictures.” As do we, so here’s some extra bonus Moose:



  1. Toe splayage! Cute boy, sorry about the chav styling.

    I love the way pugs’ tails coil up so tightly, like leetle peeg tails.

    At the risk of sounding like the 8000th NTM squealy girl with no original cute phrasingk:

    AND THA FANS in the bleachers GO WILD

    I can verify that pug hugs are indeed sweet as a love drug. Just last week I got to hold a tiny little pug puppy. Almost fainted from the combined cute and sweet. 🙂 Yay pugs!

  7. ohmygoodness… those little baby toe nails on the pupplekins are killing.

  8. puddlepeppers says:

    Who’s cute? Who’s Number One? Who’s got Lorre eyes?

  9. Calvin Klein is no friend of mine
    Don’t want nobody;s name on my bee-hind!

  10. (I was just kickin’ it old school, there)

  11. I don’t know what’s best – the poem or the pug pics. This total package is one of my all time fav posts.

  12. mplsredd says:

    Who’s a good pug!!?? Who’s a good pug??!! You are!!! You are!!

    Pugs are like little piggies that run around and act all cute! LOVE THEM.

  13. Retired Hippie says:

    Better than the Kia driving gerbils! “Do – dah – dippity!”

  14. So cute, but I think someone needs a toe nail trim!

  15. o no he/ she/it DI-unt!!! says:

    “….like little piggies…..” — including the curlicue tails!@!!
    Pretty excellent point there!!!!

  16. bookmonstercats says:

    Tee hee. Wins.

  17. bookmonstercats says:

    Rememberin’ AuntyBellum’s description of NOMTOM as shy, bespectacled, geeky and neatly dressed in leather jacket.

    Now dressin’ him in rapper bling………… it still works, in a strange way.

  18. Keepin’ it real, y’all!


  19. Moose has got it goin’ on! Great photos, and I love the poem.

  20. Bonus points for the Marty Feldman reference.

  21. Dat’s right. Everybody, give it up for NOMTOM & Moose!

  22. You know, I’ve never liked rap, but if this precious pug was a rapper, I’d listen to him all day. So cute!

    And Moose is a PERFECT name.

  23. I particularly love that his bling is a sweet little ribbon necklace! At first it fools the eye and then it makes you go AWWW.

  24. I just showed Moose to my mom, and she just instantly burst out laughing. 🙂

  25. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!!! says:

    yay for Moose and for Mom!!!

  26. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!!! says:

    but that wu’nt be GANGsta!!!!

  27. They also shnort and shnuffle like piggies!

  28. Copperbat says:

    NTMTOM. sick rhymes.


  29. You da bomb, Moose.

  30. (The Original) Mel says:

    Woof it feels good to be pugsta.
    A real pugsta-dogg puppeh plays his cards right.

  31. Martha in Washington says:

    Fo’ shizzle!

    *apologizes if that’s the wrong usage. I am SUCH a white girl!*

  32. Ditto!

  33. Bonus Moose? Better than Christmas bonus.

  34. I want a tan puglet immediately! Send one to me at once!

    I will love him and squeeze him and name him Goose…he can be friends with Moose.

  35. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!!! says:

  36. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!!! says:

    Here “it” is. Where do I give it up???

  37. skippymom says:

    Give it to me, I’ll take care of it for you.

  38. skippymom says:

    Why? I don’t see anything pervy about him, and we know how your mom is.

  39. Goose is Miss Meg’s leetle Iggy. How is Goose, anyway?

  40. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!!! says:

    My mom was getting ready to read the sports section of the paper, about the Barry Bonds trial, and she said and I quote “OK, now I’m going to read about Barry Bonds’s b***s. 😯

  46. Aw, I was just quoting those wise old sages, Run-DMC, particular favorites of mine:

  47. Ali-baba says:

    I like cute pugs and I can not lie
    You other cute overloaders can’t deny
    That when a pug walks in with a curly-q tail
    And those round bug eyes in your face
    You get a grin, wanna reach out an scritch
    ‘Cause you notice that pug is soft

  48. “Give us a thoughtful, life is tuff for a pug-thug look. Yeah! That’s it, right there! That’s the money shot. Golden!”

    D.J. Pug-a-licious.

    And super cute, if that’s the right word for stoner rodents.

  56. Bwahahahahahahaha!!! LOVE!

  57. Queen of Dork says:

    This post is just chock full of all kinds of yum! NTMTOM’s rap, the pug’s cuteness, the pug’s splayed toes and toenails and the way he’s looking so handsomely and sternly at the camera with each eye looking in a different direction…YUM! I love it! 🙂

  58. Queen of Dork says:

    skippymom, you crack me up! 🙂

  59. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:
