335 pugs rescued since October, 2005

Pete - 1998 - January 11, 2008


If you looked in the dictionary under the word "sweet", you would find a picture of a little pug with bulgy eyes and an undershot jaw. Pug snobs disliked him for everything that was "wrong" about him. We loved him all the more for his "wrongness". He was the poster boy for bad pug breeding, but he was also a shining example of pure pug love.

He overcame 5 horrible years of neglect leading to blindness to become our Pete and a therapy dog extraordinaire. He survived MCT, only to be finally defeated by malignant melanoma. We loved him with all our heart. His Boy will miss him a great deal. We let him go today to find Bob and Scout at the Bridge.
