Default Does the painting industry have a Pug problem?

Anther recent thread made me think of a question I have often asked myself; do painters tend to own Pugs more than other breeds and if so, what are the associated problems with them?

Also, are homes that have Pugs in them more difficult to work in or not?

Personally, my experience with them is that they tend to be fat, bug eyed, farty little buggers (the Pugs, not the painters that own them).

For those of you who are naive such as I, don't google pawgs when you're wife is nearby. You're welcome.

Can’t say I’ve ever owned a pug or had a client that did, but what I did have was a client with a parrot by the name of Ernie who would imitate a woman climaxing...also sang opera too..

The dogs of my life and not a pug among them! All med - lg size dogs. I do think pugs are the joke of the dog world! (And the real canine clowns!) A problem with them?... Not me.

I have a pug, lulu belle. She is the best, sheds a ton, but still a great little dog.

I've always like pugs, never had one but came close once. They're my kind of dog, nice and relaxed and not too needy. Instead we got the opposite, in April we bought the kids a Springer Spaniel puppy. She's amazingly friendly, super smart, and great with the kids but very high energy and requires a lot of attention.

Here she is waiting for me to throw a tennis ball. She's obsessed with them, I'm pretty sure I could throw that ball all day long and she'd never get tired of fetching it and catching it mid air.

And just to be clear, I like all dogs. Have been in homes with all types, Pugs included, and usually enjoyed having them around. But there was that one job with the little mixed breed mutt that insisted on peeing on my drops.

Ever since the day I was coming down off my ladder and just about crushed the little mop dog that was waiting for me at the bottom I insist that they not be in the area I'm working in. If that's a pain in the butt, try swirling up a drop sheet into a doughnut and most of the time they'll curl up in it and supervise.

I agree. Some painters are just downright repugnant.
