Behold, The Pugs Of Westeros!

Phillip and Sue Lauer have (at least) two big passions in life: their pugs Roxy, Blue and Bono, and the book/TV series “Game of Thrones.” Naturally, like any decent dog-obsessed nerds with a lot of time of their hands, they’ve meticulously recreated the HBO show with their pups playing the various characters, including Jon Snow,…

This Pug’s “Wrecking Ball” Halloween Costume Is On Point

Bone-Pugs-N-Harmony Sings “First Of Tha Month”

It’s possible that nobody was smart enough to come up with an all-pug parody of Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony’s 1995 hit “First of Tha Month,” until now. But I prefer to think that the world just simply wasn’t ready for this much genius back then, and so we had to wait until we really deserved it. [Vimeo]…

Is It Legal To Marry A Pug?

Because if it is, I want to marry Winston. Pipeline points us to the adorableness that is a pug named Winston modeling eyeglasses for ModCloth. On the left? That’s “Winston Gates.” On the right? That’s “Diane Von Winstonburg.” I want to climb through the screen and squeeze those furry cheeks! If you’re a pug lover…
