Did You Know the Pug Dog Breed Was Almost Labeled as an Edible Dog? Watch Out Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba has two pug dogs. One named Nancy (after her character in Sin City 2005) and the other Sid. Sid is said to be referring to Sid and Nancy, the Sex Pistols duo.

Its know wonder Jessica loves her pugs, they are intriguing little guys. The pug is one of the oldest breeds of dog. Their are 3 theories regarding pug ancestry.
1. Some believe they are a smaller version of the French Mastiff.
2. Others believe it is a shorthaired Pekingese or another Oriental breed.
3. And the last theory is an offspring of a small bulldog.

One thing all researchers do agree on is that it originated in 400BC somewhere in Asia. The name Pug comes from the Latin word “pugnus” which means fist. Because the pugs head looks like a clenched fist. Another theory is that the name comes from the pug monkeys that resembled the little dog.

I wonder if Jessica Alba knows her little darlings were almost classified as an edible dog during the Shang Dynasty 1751 BC. Thank goodness they became classified as hunters instead. Most people who have pugs now, wouldn’t consider them a hunter. I think they would rather sit on the couch with the remote control all day if we would let them.

One of the most famous pugs is the pug that became the official dog of the House of Orange. It has been said that a pug saved Prince William’s life. The dog began barking and woke Prince William up. The pug alerted him of approaching Spanish soldiers.

Pugs have on of those faces that you just have to love. He has fine smooth short glossy hair. He has “rose ears” and very large black eyes, a short thick body, with a high set tail, that curls over his back. His colors are silver, apricot, black, or fawn with the black mask and ears and black trace along his back. The average height is about 10-11 inches and they should weigh only 14-18lbs. My, my I have seen some big pugs. I’ll have to tell my sister her pug should not weigh 30lbs. Also, the cute little wrinkle above there nose is suppose to resemble the symbol for Prince in China.

Their are many reasons to love a pug, I am sure Jessica loves hers for many reasons. But they are happy and intelligent little guys. He is great with children and requires only modest exercise. (This must because he had servants early on in his ancestry.) A daily walk will do. If you are looking for an exercise buddy, this guy is not for you, especially on a hot day. Pugs do not like heat, and can become overheated fairly easy.

Daily brushing is a good idea, as the pug does shed. Also, a quick wipe down of the little wrinkle above his nose with a washcloth with soap and water. This area collects dirt and stays moist. The moistness can cause health problems if not cleaned once or twice a week. One tip for the pug owners is to rub down his coat with a silk handkerchief and it will make his coat very shiny.

To Jessica, for loving her 2 little pugs, now we know why. The pug is an affectionate, loyal little lap dog. He is a great companion, and with that clown like face, he will make you smile each day. He is smart, easily trainable and loves kids.
