Phil Maggitti, the author of Pugs: Everything About Purchase, Care, Nutrition, Behavior and Training (one of the very best pug books on the market), has turned his pen to recording some of his delightful experiences as the owner of a not-so-small herd of pugs. Pug afficionados will be familiar with Maggitti from the pages of Pug Talk, the breed magazine in which he often shares his unique brand of humor. You will hear about pug breeding (Maggitti shares a picture of an adorable puppy, confiding that, despite her cuteness, "her father was a turkey baster"), original pug sin (for Adam it was an apple; for the pug, it was a crabapple), St. Pugnacious (did you know that there were pugs in the Middle Ages?), and why Barking at Equines By Pugs should be an official Olympic competition, using the rules that Maggitti has so carefully drawn up.
Whether you own pugs or not, this book will make you laugh; if you know pugs at all, it is the book you will want to buy for all your pug-loving friends this Christmas.
