The Noble Pug

Lightning

The pug is among the oldest breeds of dog. It is believed to have originated in China before 400 B.C., and is known to have been a pet in Buddhist monasteries in Tibet.

The pug made the long trek to Europe with 17th-century traders of the Dutch East India Company.

I bet they had their heads out the window the whole way!

Famous pug owners include the Empress Josephine, and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
