What a face!

You're embarassing himmm. :(

 |  Aug 28, 2006 at 11:08 PM

The quivering puppy lips! Too cute!

 |  Aug 28, 2006 at 11:16 PM

Awwww.... Too Cute!!!

 |  Aug 28, 2006 at 11:16 PM

That´s not cute, that´s sad. The dog is making those noises because it can´t breathe normally. The muzzle has been bred so short that the animal will for the rest of its life have breathing problems, especially at hot weather. It is so sad what people have done to dogs.

 |  Aug 28, 2006 at 11:35 PM

I agree, Paula.
Pugs are nice dogs, but I couldn't live with that noise. I wouldn't want to support the breeding of pugs by buying one, either. It's easy to consider something cute when you don't really understand, what is behind all the snorting and puffing.
And that was a calm, somewhat relaxed pug! When they panic, they have to struggle to breathe.
Cute or sad -section pic, definitely!

 |  Aug 28, 2006 at 11:45 PM

Gee, I wonder how long before there's a comment that says 'FIRST! and also this is not cute it is sad and cruel'

 |  Aug 28, 2006 at 11:49 PM

Ladies and gentlemen, let's give a warm Cute Overload welcome to our special celebrity guest, Mr. Peter Lorre!


(By the way, this is the eighth post, and I think that's unspeakably cruel and not at all cute, because the number eight scares and confuses me.)

I find pugs cute and very, very, very sad. The noise is there because the thing cannot breath properly - notice how he opens his mouth every two seconds and pants. Because he is out of breath.

Please stop supporting the breeding of them; don't buy dogs that are unhealthy to begin with :´(

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 12:38 AM

I don't like when people alter animals genetics like this - the case of persians and pugs. He's definitely cute, but sad too. Poor thing. He acts as if he's self-conscious :(

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 12:56 AM

sounds like he's purring oO

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 01:45 AM

AWWWW his face is so FLAT! and i love when dogs rest their faces on the ground

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 01:45 AM

True, it's awful that dogs are bred this way, but the pug breed has been around for hundreds of years. They still need good homes, regardless and are probably going to fare worse with people shunning them just to support the cause.

This fella doesn't look sad either. He's just going about his business and doesn't want a camera stuck in his face, like Cher when she goes all bonkers at the pararazzi for filming her when she's shopping for sequins and thongs. Except that this little guy is obviously more refined than Cher and doesn't threaten to punch the person holding the camera.

Hey there!
I'm an Italian blogger and I just want to tell you that I love your blog and that I'm going to link it for BlogDay2006!

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 01:56 AM

The part where he was snarfing the sheets was cute. But I agree with the previous comments; the noise is kinda scary. He sounds like a growly lion, and he shouldn't be sounding like one.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 02:05 AM

That noise is just one of the reasons why I want a pug!!! I love that noise... heh.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 02:40 AM

oh... people.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 02:52 AM

He's mildly cute but I have dog issues, I find them untrustworthy. They have such shifty eyes. Are you going to lick me or go for my jugular? You dont know!!! :S

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 03:08 AM

I have a Boston Terrier who has not quite so smooshy a face. He also pants and snorts, snuffles and plants his mug on the ground. Also has shifty eyes. He is happy, and loving and cute as can be. So is this little pug dude.

I agree that some dog breeds have gotten completely out of hand.

But, this is a precious little dude. He is who he is and needs love, too!

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 03:39 AM

Many of the "pure bred" dogs have problems specific to their breed. Pugs-breathing trouble, Bassetts- hip trouble, Labs-allergies, Pekingese- eye troubles. And it's not necessarily better to get a mutt because then you don't know what to watch out for as much. All I'm saying is when you get a dog you have to be prepared to deal with health issues that will arise, and if you know your dog is prone to a certain problem, you can try preventative maintenance such as keeping a pug or bassett very slim.

I have to admit that this pup is cute or sad though. But he looks like an old guy so the years are probably catching up with him.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 03:56 AM

Charming. I love pugs.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 03:56 AM

I want to smoosh his little pugzlemuff!

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 04:11 AM

Euww that is disgusting I dont like that dog or its vile breathing. NOT cute!!

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 04:23 AM

I also vote "not cute" on this one. Poor pugs have been bred to be little more than the genetic equivalent of an American made car: guaranteed problems over the span of their entire lives that come to an end with an early death. What some people do to dogs to make them look appealing astounds me.

"Oh, cute! He's having problems breathing! Listen to the little snorts and gasps he makes as he fights for air - isn't it simply adoreable? I'm going to save him the effort of walking by shoving him into my purse!"

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 04:51 AM

he clearly didnt like the smell of the sheets. poor puppy. so ugly yet so cute!

all doggies breathe a little loud! yes, pugs are smooshy faces and have a little more trouble, but that's just how it is! NTMTOM--hilarious! Keep snorfling, little dewd!

chet's momma
 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 05:04 AM

My terrier mix makes a similar noise some times and he snores too, and he as not at all bred by "professionals" shall we say- uhum--but he is doing just fine and his little snoring is almost comforting- so I agree with the post that says pugs need homes too, and don't shun them for a cause- because even mutts snore and snuffle!

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 05:26 AM

"Are you going to lick me or go for my jugular? You dont know!!!"

At least with cats you know where you stand. ;)

That said, I'm definitely a dog person. I love kittens, but once they grow up and become cats, it's more like they allow you to live in their house as long as you're useful to them. Dogs, on the other hand, love you for life.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 05:28 AM

I think the video is unspeakably cruel and not at all cute. I think Peter Lorre should have been left in peace. Did anyone ask HIM if he wanted to be in yet another movie . . . and no wonder he is panting, he's grown incredibly hairy. (and I'm betting this job didn't go through his agent!)

. . . however, should that not be Peter Lorre, but a cute lil' poochie, I would love to give him a hug.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 05:32 AM

Awww, squishy-face! Just like my babies! I love it :)

Pugs only breathe like this when they're hot or out of breath. Most of the time, they breathe just fine. My pugs are healthy, happy, lively, mischevious little critters. If you've never owned one, don't make assumptions about how "pitiful" or "sad" they are.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 05:32 AM

In true cute porn fashion, I was waiting for the off-camera hand to begin petting Puggy.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 05:52 AM

since apparently today is "Take Offense Day" (TOD),
I will take offense at Vin for his/hers insensitive comments about American cars: our cars are from General Motors (GM) and they serve us well. I currently drive a Camaro [insert joke here] and it is an awesome car.
most cars from most manufacturers are pretty much the same in each price bracket regarding reliability, safety, etc.

"zomg, soooo not cute, how cruel it is for a dog to be itself. i have problems with factors completely unrelated to the dog so i'm going to deprive the puppy of the title of cute."

this site isn't a place for your unsolicited tirades against teh evilz of breeding. this site is for appreciating the puppies that are already here without getting all self-righteous about it, please.

that being said, what a handsome boy. the snorfing is my favorite...

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 05:54 AM

Yes, the breeding may be cruel, but it's not cruel that he's just layin' there chillin' out, is it? C'mon, people.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 06:13 AM

I don't care what anyone says, it's cute cute cute. I love the shifty eyes!

I didn't realize this had become crankyoverload.com
sheesh peoples. Go to a politics message board somewhere if you want to be all pi$$y about everything.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 06:21 AM

Conan was on my lap when I watched this and as soon as he heard it he turned and watched that poor pug so intently. Didn't take his eyes from the screen.

Conan, by the way (along with his brother Sydney) is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Luxating patella, heart murmur, potential eye problems, short muzzle/snoring, collapsing trachea - I love them anyway and even though some of it is problems with breeding, I'm prepared to spend any amount of money to make them happy and comfortable. (As evidenced by Sydneys $500 mouth and Conan's $1000 knees...)

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 06:23 AM

LOVE that snort, LOVE PUGS. Great post. T'would be nice to see a video of a sleeping, SNORING smooshface.

Dislike cranky unrealistic PC types. Human eugenics anyone?

and Mina---you just can't read dogs, tho most of them are open and honest, they can't help it. Cats, otoh, really don't care.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 06:34 AM

PuppyMomma -
Same thing happened here - all my animales (2 cats, 1 dog) looked up and were fascinated with the sound of the pug! It was pretty funny! I loved how he flopped onto the pillow at the end!

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 06:42 AM

There's nothing cruel about this video. Perhaps the video-er is too much in the poor dear's face space, but that's not cruel. Pugs have not had a large amount of tinkering in the ways of breeding for centuries (they are, like another poster said, a very old breed). My pug snorts and snores and I love the sound. Most pug owners also have an operation done on their pugs when they're wee little to widen the nasal passages so help with breathing. My pug (14 years old now) has been one of the most precious aspects of my life. I would not hesitate to get another one some years down the line.

Thanks for posting another pug!

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 06:42 AM

Heh! For the first part of the video, he's clearly thinking "Hellooooo? Where's my snorgle?" Then when his people are clearly to dense to get the point, he's saying "Fine, then I'll just go over here and ignore you, too. PTHPTH! So there!"

And while I also have issues with dog breeding, this really isn't the place.

Also, sabrina, since you so clearly hate everything about CuteOverload, why in the name of God do you keep coming here? Why don't you stop torturing yourself (and us) and just stay away?!?

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 06:45 AM

Argh! That should be "tooooooooo dense"...

(Before the grammar po-leece come and take me away.)

People. THIS IS MEG'S WEBSITE. MEG IS THE WEBMISTRESS. If she thinks something's cute, she has every darn right to post it, as long as its legal, nevermind *our* opinions. So, if you don't like it, CLOSE THE DAMN WEBPAGE and save yourself the precious two minutes that you'd waste on your whiny comments. Capisce?

Oh, and if anyone wants to get personal, my email is [email protected]. Bring it on.

Signor Valerio: Mille grazie per la nominazione!

With all the kvetching, we've forgotten our manners.

Personally, I think it's unspeakably cruel greyhounds have been bred to be farting machines (cruel to their owners, that is...)

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 07:08 AM

Ah, inbreeding...

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 07:24 AM

awww i didnt know animals made that kind of noise!!! awww! no offense but it sounds like he had a good hump

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 07:30 AM

Well said "good old whatshername" haha, said with humor, I love that. At least it cheers me up about the thing. I wasn't going to post until I saw your post and some of the "rare" positive messages that are going through those days. Thinking that a week ago we were saying how good it was to come here, now I'm getting "sad overload".

Ok people, we're not dumb, we can actually analyze things, and just because we say something is cute, doesn't mean we don't know why it happens.
Doesn't mean also we have to hide the reasons of something, but Damn, find the positive first!
Yeah the Pugs might have problems to breath, but did that little fellow seemed sad? No! And even though it would be, at least they try to live no matter what happens to them. They're lucky to be dogs and not humans, they take things for what they are, and live for the best. Too much humans are fatalist and go "Boohoo" everywhere, trying to bring people down. Hi there Mr. Ego...

I've got a Cavalier King Charles, pure breed, and they have heart desease gene going on. It shouldn't happen, but for the moment, it does, and we have to compose with this. I compose with this, she has a little hole in heart, but she is still ok. And I'm rather lucky to have her still alive at soon 10 years, some have lost their dog while in youth. Not great for them, but they fight, and don't goo "boohoo". They still love, and try to find it wherever they can... not like "you" apparently. I'll listen to those who hopes instead of those who goes "sad rather than cute".
I say "Cute rather than Sad".

You GO Cute Overload!!! Yeehaaaaaaaah!

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 07:32 AM

Yay pugs! That's their happy noise! Like purring. And for non-pug owners, they don't **always** breath like that. They're just expressive little dogs and have a bigger repitoir of noises than plane ol' barking.

That pug is cute. But my pug is cuter.

 |  Aug 29, 2006 at 07:46 AM

Breed issues aside, nothing changes the fact that this INDIVIDUAL puppy is ADORA-GORGEOUS. I want to snorgle him so much.
