I’ve been dating a great woman for the past few months – we get along great, have lots to talk about, share common interests, and agree on most everything, except for pugs. She thinks those homely little dogs are adorable, I say they’re %#@%$! pugly. There’s no way my miniature schnauzer, possibly the best dog to grace the earth, would ever be subjected to sharing space with a four-legged creature that’s run full speed into a brick wall a few too many times. Groom it, teach it to do the laundry and call it Buddy, it’s still not gonna happen. Much like putting some chrome accents on a Subaru B9 Tribeca or offering a Special Edition badge fails to transform the vehicle into something even remotely attractive, though nearly 15,000 buyers opted to call this ride their own during the latter half of 2005. Beauty, it seems, remains in the eyes of the beholder.
