The Puggerpillar is real

My bestie and I were on our usual coffee blab-sess at the local Starbucks, when the subject made a strange segue and landed onto the subject of dogs in Singapore. C, my gal pal, remarked candidly that she’s been noticing a lot more people in Singapore, especially in the central area, sporting their all-new trend: Pugs.

 

They’re the new Adidas, the flashy (or rather, pudgy) bling bling – Most people aren’t seen without them, and more women are opting for these squashy-faces as their canine companions as compared to other dogs. (Remember the Shih Tzu craze in 2004? That is no more.)

 

Enter the age of the pug.

 

Nonetheless, C made a sudden remark that I (as a self-professed pug-lover) piqued my irritation, where I immediately felt a strong rush to yank her hair off her scalp. C went: “Pugs are weird looking, and not in a good way. They’re so ugly and fat, plus they make a gross wheezy sound when they breathe. I don’t see how they are trendy because people are just following what’s popular and I think that’s really shallow.”

 

Oh C, where do I even begin to prove her wrong? These are 5 simple reasons why pugs are absolutely adorable.

 

1. They look like fat bundles of rolled up joy when you wrap them like popiah
