Pug recall

'07 pugs are being recalled in an unprecedented move by breeders.

In other news, '99 Miniature Schnauzers are still OK, but we'll keep checking the Onion for any updates.

Pug Sunday

|

Hobie went to Pug Sunday in Alta Plaza Park today.

It was a little chilly, but there were still around 20 pugs in attendance. There were pugs of all shapes and sizes, from tiny pups to one that looked a lot like Jabba the Hut.

A few pugs wore clothing. One fashion-conscious pug simply wore an LV collar, while the pair in the picture donned SF Giants jerseys.

Hobie trotted around a little bit to check out the other dogs, but he didn't really care too much for them. In fact, he decided to just sit down and look at us.

Hobie does not want to play with the other pugs on Pug Sunday

There were more people than dogs at Pug Sunday, and several people brought blankets and just sat on the grass waiting for playful pugs to approach.


Pug attack

|

Hobie and I were on our way back from walking to Alamo Square this morning when we saw a pack of pugs down the street.

One woman had four of them, all running around lose on the sidewalk, and she was talking to another dog owner (who just had one, slightly larger dog). The pugs were mostly doing their own thing, walking around, smelling trees, and just enjoying life.

We walk toward them, and the pug closest to us saw Hobie and started trotting toward us. Hobie has been getting a little skittish when meeting some dogs, so he stopped and waited for the other dog to come. They did a little butt-sniffing dance, and then Hobie walked on.

Now the second pug sees us, and he runs toward Hobie to smell. We get past this obstacle too.

By now I feel like I'm in some game, with the pugs being little bosses that Hobie has to get past. Of course, next up is a third pug and the larger dog. It was a mutt, around Hobie's size, and they sniff him up front and back at the same time. Hobie's not quite sure how excited he is, but he takes it like a real dog.

The fourth pug is hiding behind its owner.

I exchange smiles with the other dog owners, and Hobie is ready to go.

Game over.
