The Art of Pug War

Rosy instigates about 98% of the squabbles between her and Sunny. While Sunny's moves are generally focused on defense, Rosy has her favorite attack moves. Based on the comments I get on my Facebook and Instagram photos it appears these are common tactics with lots of pugs. It's like they're all given a manual or taught in class how to do these moves...

Here are a few examples of the tactics described in my drawing in real life with my pugs, Sunny and Rosy. Enjoy.


  1. Ares and Luna have a bite and yank move. When Luna is on her back, Ares will grab and gnaw her back legs then pull her around the room and vice versa. They love it.

  2. Seriously, pugs are so silly. That's why we love them so much.

  3. oh my gosh. you hit the nail on the head again. i am dying!! our rosie is the instigator too (even though she's older). she'll go up to bowie and randomly just bite his leg - it's so so funny. i caught a similar "fight" this morning. they crack me up - love this one and love the photos that go with it haha.

  4. had to share this with you - the story of 2 sister pugs named sunny and rosie who got adopted into a new home with a happily ever after :)

  5. My female pug is the instigator too! She has that slap move down cold. :)

  6. I like how Rosy's general outfit has pug hairs all over it too! Funny!
