Flat Faces Unite!

My sisters and I just got my dad a 6-month only pug puppy, which we named Piggie because she snorts and wheezes like a one. She came from my sister's coworker's friend, who was unable to keep her once she moved into a no-pets-allowed apartment.

Piggie (that's with an "-ie" since she's now living in the IE, aka the Inland Empire, where Temecula is, wha-what!) is really sweet and crazy cute. (More pix of Piggie here.)
