Are pugs huggers? Not always
I don't quite know how to tell her this, but Liam isn't much on the hugging thing.
Like a lot of pugs, Liam enjoys spending time with his people. His comfort zone ends about a foot away from my body, so he is almost always touching me in some way throughout the day. And he loves to be petted, by friend and foe alike.
But the cuddling thing is out of the question. Try to pick him up, and he'll squirm right out of your hands like a tiny, wriggling, fur-covered fish. And four-on-the-floor hugs aren't much better. Most of the time, he whirls away from those, too.
So I was a little stumped by today's blog hop.
You see, some wonderful bloggers at The Three Little Pugs are going through a very difficult time right now, and we've been asked to share a hug with them. I so, so wanted to do this, as I think pugs can be a great comfort to people in need. Liam's snorting and wuffling always comforts me.
But how can I deliver a hug that doesn't end up looking like this? (Note the howl.)
Yeah, that's not very comforting at all.
So instead, we send our hugs with flowers. The sentiment is the same. We are so hoping that things will turn for the better for our blogging friends. But the hug thing? We're out.
See the others who have joined the hug-fest here. And do add your blog, if you can. The more hugs we can send to this family, the better!
