How about this---pug owners really need to get a life! We had a pug, AKA name---The Pug of Monte Christo, or just Monte. I don't recall we ever subjected him to dressing up in silly costumes. I guess we just weren't good pug owners.
I received an e-mail with pictures of dogs dressed up for halloween, and half of them were pugs. It just seemed kind of weird to me.
