I had a rare day to spend with the pugs... and all of the people I had made appointments with to look at various things that need fixing in the house during the day. All those people, ringing the doorbell, walking through the house with those fascinating smells, providing varying amounts of affection ( is it reasonable to not want to work with someone who doesn't love dogs and/or pugs?). The pugs were EXHAUSTED after their long day of meet-and-greet.
How is a pug to stay conscious in this situation.
Certainly no conceivable way.
Unless said pug is still holding out hope for a derelict treat.
