 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 09:00 AM

(i wonder what they were trying to do to him there at the Banfield Pet Hospital...)

i love his "mug" shot in the back seat of the cop car.


 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 09:09 AM

The second pic in the news story is pretty funny: his little pug mug has a small one-sided snarl "Ya got me this time, coppah, but next time...next tiiiiiiiime..."

Course, he could just have a quirky underbite...but he still looks like a Thug-Pug with ATTITUDE :-)

Registered sex offender?

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 09:18 AM

lol at the mosaic to hide his id...
Meg, you *too* funny!

They'll never keep 'Machine Gun Pete' in the slammer for long. "You doity rats, no prison can hold me" he was reported to have said.

I think he's their new undercover police dog

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 09:23 AM

DUH! I just read the article. Thanks to everyone who rescued this runaway. Way to Go!!! applause

Bad pug, bad pug. Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 09:40 AM

Although the idea of this little guy running through heavy traffic terrifies me, the story and pictures are just too damn funny. Pugs always look like they just did something bad, or they're just about to. Love 'em!

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 09:41 AM

That is kinda scary...
I was volunteering at an adoption event for our local animal shelter at a PetSmart, and a little rat terrier slipped out of his collar while I was holding his leash.
I dove valiantly across the floor to save him!!
Caught him!
Of course, then I felt silly - d'oh! - we were inside, where was he gonna go?!?
But *now* I have to worry about him operating the automatic door opener...

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 09:45 AM

i'm a pug!
whatcha gonna do?
hoohoo hoo hoo!

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 09:53 AM

Pug Thug ; )

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 10:01 AM

Everything aBOUT this post is awesome. The real-life "more at 11" story, Meg's mosaic-blurred "Pug Shot", the fact that the squad car looks like it's named "ROOPER"... luvit luvit luvit.

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 10:01 AM

I think its the same pug from a few posts down, maybe he got nasty when he couldn't wait for his Slurpies?

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 10:02 AM

This week on Dog the bounty hunter... Pug Thug is tracked and finally captured.

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 10:36 AM

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 10:38 AM

inside the kennel:

tell us again, pleeeeese -

pug - so I say to myself there's no leash out there that can hold me, I'm gonna make a run for it...

and then and then co'mon tell us the rest

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 10:43 AM

Poor puggles. I'm glad he's okay!

I helped chase down a poor skeered dog that ran out of the groomers once. He was trailing his leash, and we found him hiding in a nearby parking lot.

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 11:00 AM

Alternately, Pug is saying, "Officer, dose ain't even my pants. I don't know how those stolen Milkbones got in de pocket. Dose is my cousin's pants. See, my pants was in the warsh, and I was just gonna come done he' for a Slurpee see. I didn't know dat stuff was even de pants. Dey ain't my pants, see?"

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 11:04 AM

Omg, this happened to my dog too! He managed to escape, and my mom looked all over the neighborhood for him.. until finally, a police car rolled by and my mom saw my dog's guilty face peering through the back window. (He's a schnauzer/lhasa apso mix, if you can imagine that.)

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 11:10 AM


oh redz stop, yer killin' me....

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 11:12 AM

I'm glad things turned out all right for Mr. Puggles.

My dad's dog, Sherlock, is very, very timid. She was a stray with no id, and we kinda figure she must have been beaten or abused by someone, because she wanted nothing to do with any humans. Thankfully she warmed up to the family over time.

But, I digress.

Dad and Sherlock were out for a walk one evening when Dad noticed a hot air balloon drifting peacefully in the sky. The balloon was rather low, and it was easy to hear the hiss/roar of the gas and flames as the balloon operator turned up the heat.

Dad was looking at the balleen with interest.

Sherlock wasn't paying too much attention to the sight.

When the hiss/roar sounded, though, Sherlock was convinced that this was a horrible monster come to eat her. She darted away so suddenly, that Dad lost his grip on her leash. She was off like a shot, and Dad lost sight of her pretty quickly.

After searching the area for a while, Dad decided to go home, get the car, and start a wider search.

After he got his car and was driving down the block, intending to head back to where he'd lost her, he turned a corner and was suprised to see, in the distance, Sherlock. She was making her way home.

To this day, he can't keep the awe from his voice as he describes finding her as she was on her way home.

Pug mug shot! love it. Glad the Rooper found him, that is a very busy freeway area around there!

just saw the balleen story and it reminded me of an event, many years ago. I saw a small white poodle-y dog running with his leash trailing behind him and snagged him. This was outside my apt. complex. I walked around with him for about an hour looking for (1) an owner searching or (2) him to act like he recognized somewhere and wanted to go home. Nothing. He had a license but no name/id so I finally called the dog license people. By then it was after hours and all I got was a recording but I could go to the location and get the after-hours staff to look it up. So .. I drove, like, 20 miles with this dog to get his address. The darn little guy lived ACROSS THE STREET from me in another apt. complex. So I drove him back home again. He never gave any sign he lived there as we walked past (many times). Gotta love 'em even when they are VERY naughty.

You mean blurred to hide Pug's Mug, don't you, Meg.

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 12:17 PM

I'd take this little criminal home anytime! He deserves some punishment in the form of copious snorgling!!! What a naughty little cutie! Thanks for the cute story to go with it!

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 12:33 PM

I agree this is one of the best posts ever - every aspect is perfection, including comments! And the little face in the police car window... THUNK! I'm dead!

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 01:23 PM

Nobody knows the trubble i seeeeeeennnnn......

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 01:26 PM

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 01:34 PM

The budget cuts have hit the State Patrol hard. They've had to replace all their German Shepherds with pugs.

You know the donut stipend is next!

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 01:38 PM

Bad dogs, bad dogs, whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do when they come for you? Bad dogs, bad dogs.

why in the hell would there be automatic sliding glass doors in a vet!?

 |  Sep 07, 2007 at 03:02 PM

It's not so much why there are automatic doors. If you're carrying a 100lb dog in your arms, it would be convenient not to have to mess with opening a door. (I've watched too many episodes of Emergency Vets!)

My question is why is it so sensitive that a 20lb dog can set it off?
