Went to a BBQ yesterday. Was well oiled when I turned up and the missus and her daughter were there. Immediately I'm accosted by them both, almost crying saying there's a woman here who's a Pug breeder and that she has the last puppy here with her today. And yes, they want it. However, it's not cheap and they want me to go halves with them. Cue the next three hours constant pleading, making me hold this puppy and telling me how practical it will be to have a Pug in our lives. Eventually, against my better judgement I relent. They're now over the ****ing moon that they're we're getting a Pug. I've been reading up on them and they're renowned for their snoring and flatulence. Great, so that's two of us in the house with this problem and I'm not including myself in that equation either.
The only good thing about it is that I ruled out a family holiday if we got it and the dog so I have to be thankful for small mercies.

They've called the dog Percy by the way.

**** my luck.

When you're snorkeling and you get that rattling noise in the snorkel meaning you're about to get a gob full of sea water unless you stop and clear if.....

GCRO - I'm not sure what is worse, that you agreed to having it or that you are paying for half.

Don’t worry. If it comes from a professional breeder it probably won’t last long.

The current over zealous crusading against all things plastic, like the worlds ills can all be traced back to people using carrier bags and bottles of mineral water.

They're talking about banning cotton buds, and have already banned plastic straws in many places. How about just a sensible rationalisation of the plastics we do use, coupled with proper investment in the disposal of used plastics?

Meeting smirkers. How about you try contributing something meaningful, you c**t, rather than sitting in complete silence with a "knowing" smirk on your face?

You c**t.

Still, at least your mates won't take the p1ss out of you when you rock up at the pub with Percy the Pug.

How about how much of the vets bills he will be paying considering their inherent health problems such as dodgy eyes and even dodgier airways?

And don't forget all the "cute" clothes that pug owners dress their little darlings in, pink sweater will go well with the image. :D

Pugs are hilarious, so easy to wind up. Health problems are easily avoided if you get them from a proper registered breeder.
