I LIVE the DREAM



Today is Martin Luther King Jr day and it is a day to reflect on who we are as a nation, as a people, as a PUG.

So I did some reflecting and came to the conclusion that I AM living the DREAM of many many pugs and PETS out there. I am talking about those in Shelter/Puppy Farms/Abused situations. . . and really, what makes me so special? Yes. . . I AM a princess pug and all that. But I could have just as easily ended up at the Humane Society looking for my FURever home. Instead, I was born into a privileged situation - a show family of champion PUGS - with a future as bright as the sun. I was BORN gorgeous. If it weren't for a LITTLE personality quirk (I kinda like to do things MY way) I was destined for the show ring. Instead, I became the ruling PRINCESS of a wonderful family of a Mother and Daughter who happen to also live with a couple of Aunties, Cousins, cat, birds and now - another dog. BUT I AM THE RULER, make no mistake.

Oh DOG!! I totally digressed from my appointed topic of FREEDOM and EQUALITY. Well, as Dr King said. . . .

"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."

We, as a nation, can no longer ignore the situation of mistreatment of pets UNDER the guise of ignorance. Pick today to join one of the many groups trying to make a difference in a pet's life. The rewards will be legion.

I started out as neglected pup suffering from all sorts of diseases, so I know just how lucky I am with my life now! I do everything I can to help the other dogs and kitties who weren't so lucky.

i am also living the dream but i wasn't born into royalty like you. i was homeless and was found roaming the streets. i don't begrudge my past. it just makes my present all the more wonderful.

Noodles, I couldnt agree with you more. At my first home, I was found at about 3 months old under their car. I didn't get along with their other dog, but then my Mum wanted a dog and so she took me, and I must say I LUV living with her. I am a big 75 lb lump of a dog (mum's words not mine) and she has sometimes dog sat for small dogs. Last Sunday we got a 14-year old poodle from a rescue so she could live the rest of her life in luxury. She seems to like our kitties and I took her to the big doggy park -- yesterday all the boy doggies there were fascinated -- today they were a little more used to her, but we had fun. so, to anyone who thinks a pretty healthy14 year old dog only deserves to be put down ---bah humbug to them.

Rock on Princess/Diva Noodles
