Three weeks ago (June 20th), I was working at home, when Cindy called me at around 2:30 in the afternoon. "Are you still interested in Larry?" she asked. When I said "yes", she said that Larry's owner would drop him off at dinner time. This was a little unexpected, since we had never even seen Larry at this point and he hadn't been introduced to Romeo and Elvis to see if they would get along. I called Mike at work to let him know that Larry would be joining us for dinner.
Larry is three years old. He looks a lot like Romeo, although he has a black spot on his head, more teeth and his tail is only a single curl. He spent the first few days with us beating up Romeo and Elvis incessantly. I kept having to give him a time out and put him in "pug jail" (behind the baby gate in the dining room). He'd smile at me winningly and I'd let him out only to have him launch himself right back at Elvis. He wouldn't eat (very unusual for a Pug) and he didn't want to play with any of the dog toys. He would also whip himself into a frenzy, chase his tail and snap at us. It was a little off-putting, but underneath it all, we've discovered that Larry is a charmer. He is adjusting well to his new home and his big brothers. Larry loves to play with all the stuffed animals or one of his chewy toys. He runs around off-leash with Romeo and Elvis in the park. He is gentle with children and likes all of Romeo and Elvis' dog friends. He enjoys swimming in the pool at play group.

I've told the neighbors that we're opening a pug petting zoo! I call the three boys, the Pug Pack!
