There’s a phrase in Latin that’s been used for hundreds of years to describe pugs: “Multum in parvo.” Translation: Big dog in a little body. If you own a pug – or are friends with someone who does – you know just how apt this saying is. Though small in stature, pugs pack a mighty wallop of personality and character pound-for-pound when compared with other canines. This might help to explain why their owners can be, well, just a tad bit obsessive about the breed and proudly showing off their pug love.
So naturally, pug-themed products abound. A quick google search turns up everything from pug t-shirts to pug golf club covers – you name it, you can probably find a pug slapped on it somewhere. But the very best pug-themed products and gifts? Well, look no further.
