How a Corgi Handles Life vs a Pug

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

Anyone living knows that life can be full of awesome and full of not-so-much at any given moment. How you frame your experiences can have a real impact on how you see the world and sometimes that positive attitude can take you a long way — just take a look at dogs.

Are you a “see the glass half empty” kind of person or would you consider yourself more a “see the glass half full” person? For me, some days I am one way and the next day I can be completely the opposite — I have a strange personality I guess.

When it comes to our dogs, it’s pretty easy to predict their personality — whether your dog will be a glass full or glass half-empty kind of dude. I’ve come to realize that when it comes to pugs, they seem to have the “half-empty” personality. Sure, there are moments where they are crazy happy, but if you go by photos alone — they always look so sad.

The opposite of that — the half full kind of personality — would be an accurate description of the corgi dog. They always seem to be smiling, happy, and ready to go, no matter what life throws at them.

Check out the differences on how a corgi handles life’s hurdles vs how a pug handles life’s hurdles:

    Since he's gone to bed early, he's has no trouble getting up in the morning. In fact, he gets up early enough he has time to read a few chapters in his latest book in bed first.

    He had a lot on his mind last night and couldn't seem to fall asleep at a decent hour. Now, of course, he's having trouble getting up and ready for the day. He was expected at work 20 minutes ago.

    He was sleeping, this kid is crying and he's not impressed. He doesn't like to be disrupted and so he's peering in to see what's going on -- hoping the baby doesn't see him.

  • How a Pug Handles More Work Load 6 of 19

    His boss just asked him to stay late and work on this new project. It's not something he really is keen on doing nor does he know how to do it. He's terrified, clearly.

    His boss too just asked him to stay late and finish the new project. Corgi informs his boss he's already completed the tasks and started on tomorrow's work too. His boss said he could go home early. Win!

    No matter where he is, who he is talking to, or what he is doing -- Pug dog is always doing what he wants. He wears what he wants (or more yet, doesn't wear) and doesn't care at all what you or anyone else thinks of him.

  • Corgi and Pug Do the Beach 10 of 19

    It's very clear in this photo how each feels about being at the beach. The Pug spends his time complaining about the heat of the sun, the sand between his paws and the water being too cold. The Corgi is happy to be outdoors with those he loves.

    They don't know what to do -- so they spend their time together confused and staring at you waiting to tell them what to do. No interaction.

    Someone saw this toy stuffed Corgi at the store and it reminded them of someone special. They were kind enough to pick it up and this Corgi knows how to graciously accept a thoughtful gift.

    Someone saw these pug slippers at the store and it reminded them of someone special. They were kind enough to pick it up, and while this Pug huffed at them and clearly didn't care for them, was forced to take a picture and he never said thank you.

    He is not at all impressed to be dressed up and will only tolerate a quick moment for a photo during Halloween. He has trouble finding the fun and point of them.

    The Corgi is dying laughing and loving all the adorable images of himself. The Pug, clearly not at all impressed with me. Sorry, sweet, adorable Pug -- no harm meant.
