It’s Wednesday! Happy Pug Day!

I designate every Wednesday to be Grumble of Pugs Day! Why? We have 2 more days (if you count today it’s 3 more days…) until the weekend. Stress is at its peak for us hard working souls, and we need to destress a bit. What’s more de-stressing than looking through a picture of pugs? There’s something magically funny and cute about pugs. The 40 Greatest Dog GIFs Of All Time features many pugs. I selected couple of images that will warm your heart. If you click on the thumbnail it will jump to the original link.
