A Tiny Pug Tale

Today i went to meet Rainy. That's the name she was given and I think I'll keep it. She's a really small pug, only 11 pounds, but she is all pug. The foster has three other pugs, two somewhat active adult females, Jasmine and Mia, and one hospice male, Taz. All four greeted me at the door. Rainy held her own with the bigger pugs, though Taz, the biggest, moves rather slow and is deaf so didn't put up much of a challenge to her. She's incredibly sweet, giving lots of kisses and sitting in my lap and next to me for most of the hour long visit. She played with the other two girls, grabbing at a stuffed toy with them in a tug of war game. As I was leaving, she wanted to come with, following me to the door, and then, after taking care of business in the yard, followed me to the back gate. This week I'll be getting her crate and food and next Saturday will go out and bring her to her forever home. Say hi to Rainy.
