DALLAS (AP) -- In a scene repeated in cities across the U.S., millions of pugs took to the streets Sunday to demand full voting rights and universal access to rawhide. The protests, organized by the enigmatic Ayatollah Mugsy, were seen as the latest step toward a possible declaration of pug independence. The firebrand cleric exhorted the pug nation to rise up and let their barks be heard. Because of the heat, however, the pugs only protested for about 15 minutes before returning to the comfort of their air-conditioned homes.
