Yesterday I saw a pug listed on our local shelter's website. He was in foster care, waiting to be adopted. After getting the "okay" from C, I emailed the sweet thing's foster mom. Unfortunately, he had already been adopted. We were heartbroken. I already planned where I would put his food and water bowls. I already looked forward to walking him in the morning before work. I already wanted to see his happy little face and wagging tail as I walked into the apartment after work. But it wasn't to be. Sigh.
Being teased by this foster pug has really gotten us thinking: should we get one anyway? It doesn't have to be the little one from the shelter; we could buy one like regular people do. I had concerns about having a dog in an apartment where no one was home during the day. But after doing a lot of online research yesterday, I found that pugs do quite well as apartment dogs. They are completely happy to sleep most of the day and really only need to be walked once a day (of course, they'd need to be taken out more than this, but that's a given). Definitely sounds like Thor.
So should we do this??? I'll post the picture of one of the available pugs just to sway the vote.
