Ming Pao - Sept. 23. 1997 - April 21, 2008

Ming Pao set sail to the rainbow bridge today. We are comforted by the fact that he was so well loved. We bought Ming Pao from a breeder in Woodstock and brought him home when he was eight weeks old. At that time, we knew nothing about rescue groups nor puppy mills. Because of Ming Pao and our love of the pug breed, as soon as we heard about Pugalug in October of 2002, Tong, Ming Pao and I joined.

Ming Pao was a most unusal pug. He was not socialized as a puppy because of a severe case of demodex mange and as a result, he could not relate to dogs. When we first brought him to a Pugalug event and other pugs tried to play with him, he hid behind our backs. Although he did improve somewhat, he never realized that he was a dog and could really only relate to people. One of the things he enjoyed most was going to Petsmart and sitting in a shopping cart high above the ground so that people could admire him and pet him.

Ming Pao, you will be in our hearts forever.

Lynne and Tong Lim
