Momentum is building

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.

My Goddess is a lawyer. Perhaps she can help us in the push for voting rights.

I applaud Mugsy for doing only what was necessary then protecting the health of his followers by retreating from the extreme Dallas heat. It is a wise pug indeed that uses such common sense to lead his flock.

I noticed a story on the news of large gathering of pugs in Nashville this past weekend, but I didn't know what was happening. Fortunately it was quite cool here this weekend, so those pugs were likely outside longer.

Excellent, Buford. We are slowly building a coalition of the willing.

We let the local chapters decide what is best, JMG. Safety always comes first.

Thank you for your support, my pug friends. Soon, a day will come when I will call upon you to rise up for the cause of Pugistan. It is heartening to know that I can count on you.

I am glad that I could offer you spiritual guidance on this matter, The_Rebel84. Please stop by anytime, and feel free to donate to the ministry any extra Italian food you may have lying around. I am known to stand on my back legs for long periods of time for a single piece of spaghetti.
