Molly's Mug Shot
FAA WATERCOLOR MARK DOES NOT APPEAR ON FINAL SALES
While at a family gathering my cousin's dog kept following around all day, and when I sat down to eat something she stared at me with those amazing eyes almost asking me to feed her or just throw her a bite of whatever I was eating. She remained so still so I decided to get down on my knees with the promise of giving her some table food if she sat still and did not move. I kept directing her by saying Molly sit and don't move and she did not, she just stared directly into the camera and I was able to capture this gorgeous portrait photograph of my cousin's pug as she was sitting on the lawn and just starring directly into the camera lens with those big brown eyes. The breed is often summarized as multum in parvo ("much in little"), describing the pugs' remarkable personality despite their small size. While the pugs appearing in eighteenth century prints tended to be long and lean, modern breed preferences are for a square cobby body, a compact form, a deep chest, and well-developed muscle. Pugs have two distinct shapes for their ears, "rose" and "button". "Rose" ears are smaller than the standard style of "button" ears, and are folded with the front edge against the side of the head. Breeding preference goes to "button" style ears. Pugs' legs are very strong, straight, of moderate length, and are set well under. Their shoulders are moderately laid back. Their pasterns are strong, their feet are small, their toes are well split-up, and their nails are black. The lower teeth normally protrude further than their upper, meeting in an under-bite.
