Over 400 years ago a pug named Pompey, saved the life of his owner, William the Prince of Orange. It was near the battlefront in the Dutch struggle against the Spanish when Pompey, sleeping at the prince’s feet, foiled a midnight attack against the prince and saved his life. Soon after, the Pug became the official dog of the Netherlands House of Orange and the Royal Monarchy of the Netherlands.
You’re a Brave Pug, Orange You!
