His perfect pup from Evan Agee on Twitter

The boy keeps pining about getting a dog. He used to have one a few years back, and really really wants another. Now he is obsessed with the idea of us getting a Pug after seeing a friends the other week. 

The house isn’t massive so we’d need a little pup {the other dog he wants is a Rottweiller but thankfully {as they look super scary} they are massive so he’s put that plan on ice!} and I’d I would love a little dog, but a Pug? I am just not sure – I think they are kind of ugly, cute but pretty buggly and aren’t they riddle with illness? There is one in the hairdressers near my brothers bar and the owner has spent £5,000+ getting illnesses fixed! Yes it was tiny and cute but she has to watch it all the time in case it tried to jump off the sofa as it might break its legs! That can’t be fun can it?

I just wonder if I should indulge his wants or steer him towards something else? 
Any ideas of small but cute dogs?

    Yea, pugs are prone to lots of illnesses… What about a king charles spaniel? Or some sort of a wee terrier? You won't regret it if you do get a dog – so much joy!

    I don't know much about dogs, except a friend of mine has pug who is the most adorable, sweet, loving little pup. He's also, as my friend is happy to tell anyone, thicker than two short planks since pugs, generally, are not known for their intelligence. So I guess you could say they are pretty, but dumb.

    That's really funny as the situation in our household is the opposite – I am desperate for a little pug but my other half is not convinced. He says he can't see himself walking a pug as he would feel silly because they look so funny, and being an active type, he wants a dog he can run along the beach with! I think we are going to settle for something in between what he wants (a cocker spaniel) and what I want, but not sure that dog exists!

    Thank you for all your doggy input. The boy returns tomorrow so i think we should chat about it and see if we can actually have a dog. we'd love one, but it might have to be an after the summer purchase so it has time to settle into the house with out us holidaying in the midst of its settling.
    I think i might try and steer him away from the pug though. xx
