Just how lazy is a pug? A Sunday selfie question

Liam the pug in his dog bed
Pugs are often called the "perfect apartment dogs." They rarely bark, and if they do, they aren't very loud at all. They don't grow to more than about 25 pounds, so they don't take up a lot of space. And they want to be close to their people at all times, so they don't need their own rooms or getaway spaces. Seems perfect, right?

But there's another reason why pugs make for great apartment dogs. And Liam the pug is demonstrating this quite nicely. When compared to other dog breeds, pugs are downright lazy. I couldn't even get him to pop up and pay attention for his Sunday selfie post for The Cat on My Head.

These photos were taken several minutes apart. Notice that he hasn't moved at all. He's found a sunny spot, and he's sticking to it. No matter what comes, he's staying put.

Pugs do have their moments of whimsy. They're prone to pug zoomies, for example, and if there's any kind of food involved, Liam will spring right to attention and stay that way until he has a bite. If there's some reward involved, a pug can be just as busy as any other breed of dog.

But in general? This is a super lazy, super chilled-out breed. And that makes pugs perfect Sunday Selfie models. No blurring, no craziness, no endless posing. They stay put.

    1. Oh, I miss having a cat zoomer. Popoki will occasionally go on a tear, but it's nothing compared to Liam's zoomies.

    1. Heh. Liam is only really active like that when he's around someone he doesn't see very often. Maybe those pugs you knew were reacting to your awesomeness!

  3. I think Ruby must be part pug because she doesn't bark, loves the couch and is generally very relaxed and ...a little bit lazy, too.

  6. Aw, Liam, you really do take perfect selfies! You are a super cutie! Don't take offense, but you almost sound like a kitty, which of course is a compliment!

    1. He steals their beds often enough! In time, he'll pick up enough of their fur and look just like them!
