The pug and the peacock, is this a battle to a draw? You decide. Make a comment and let me know if you like this breed or have one.
Anyhow, Angel has no new dog listing this week. Lots of potential clients saying they’re going to send in pictures of their dogs with a little story, so hopefully they will do that soon.
So to fill in the rest of the week, we found one of her relatives starring in this video of the pug versus the peacock.

According to Pug-Wikipedia
“The expression of the Pug belies its true sense of fun. Pugs are sociable dogs, and usually stubborn about certain things, but they are playful, charming, clever and are known to succeed in dog obedience skills.
Bred to adorn the laps of the Chinese sovereigns during the Shang dynasty (before 400 BC), in East China, they were known as “Lo-Chiang-Sze” or “Foo” (ceramic foos, transmogrified into dragon, with their bulging eyes are very Pug-like). The Pug’s popularity spread to Tibet, where they were mainly kept by monks, and then went onto Japan, and finally Europe.
This breed may also be referred to as a “Lion Dog” or “Foo (or Fu) Dog” due to its resemblance to Chinese guardian lions just like the Pekingese dog breed from China of similar origin and resemblance to Chinese guardian lions which are considered a guardian spirit.”
