- I have two Pugs, named J and K. The younger Pug, K, can be best described as a hyperactive spaz, known for being a hooligan. Truth be told, he should be on Ritalin because he definitely has Pug A.D.H.D.
So, as you can imagine, K has an uncanny ability to get into everything he is not supposed to. What this means in practical terms is that K is always on the move. If I open a door, he is there checking things out to see what's up. If I turn on a faucet, he is close by to investigate. And when I am eating, he is underfoot looking to see what's for dinner.
Last week, J and K were staying with friends while Julia and I were traveling. When we returned home, our friends brought back our boys to us totally exhausted because the night before they were unable to sleep. The reason was because the smoke from the wildfires we have been experiencing here in Moscow was so thickit was penetrating our friends' house. And, since Pugs are so little and have respiratory issues as a breed, it was hard for them to breathe . . . and to sleep.
When J got home, he immediately went to his «cushion» and crashed. K, on the other hand, just could not sit still or sleep because he just had to be «in the know». I guess the little guy thought he had the stamina to keep up with what was going on in the house, but to his surprise, he just could not stay awake while standing.
