But first, this day in pug history:
January 27, 2007 I was recovering from my Parents' greatest betrayal [Parents' note: he's talking about being neutered]. This is one of my most pitiful feel sorry for me looks.
Now, here is one reason I hate the dog park: other dogs, female and male, just can't get enough of smelling my boy parts. This is a cute and well-dressed little girl puppy, but still, we haven't even gone out to dinner yet! I am a dignified pug and I despise the antics of the less sophisticated breeds.
I also hate the dog park because the big dogs always get the ball before me. Especially in the water, since I am too much of a sissy to go all the way into the water myself.
Sometimes they corner me in impossible positions and my only recourse is to run. This is especially distressing since I really hate physical exertion.
Other dogs also try to take over my rightful place at the summit of Pug Hill, the highly coveted high ground at the dog park.
