: Does Anyone Else Pug Do This?

My pug is female and is two years old. She has certain things she does all the time and I was wondering if anyone else's pug did this:
Bark constantly when she hears or sees something outside
Sheridan is constantly waiting for me to go lay down. She will run to the
bedroom and hop on the bed every time she thinks I am going in there.
Sheridan acts really weird my husband 'Daddy' (to her) is gone. She is used to him
always being home and he is in the hospital. He has been in the hospital since Easter Sunday.
She is always laying at my feet. I will be sitting at the kitchen table or sitting at my computer desk.
Does anyone else's pug do these things?

Hi there, i have a 2 year old black female, Ari, i'm also home quite a bit, and Ari has grown attached. From what others have told me, she will sit behind the curtain of the sliding glass door the entire time i'm gone, or if someone lets her out she will sit on the patio waiting.
She doesn't like it when i sit in my office chair because she wants to lay down next to me. If she thinks i might be leaving a room or going downstairs, she stops everything and sprints to wherever she thinks i'm headed.

In our condo we have a HUGE arched window that spans across most of the living room and reaches all the way from the ceiling to the floow, I bought Wilbur awhile back these two huge red pillows -- since he prefers "super soft and fluffy" pillows to "no-so soft" dog beds.
I put the pillows right against the window and Wilbur will sit there for hours basking in the sun, and when it's later in the day he will wait and watch for "Daddy" to come home.
Once he see's Jack's car pull up he stands up and starts barking and running in circles. When Jack makes his way towards the door to come up the 3 flights of stairs to our condo, he will RUN to the door and wait for him there, still barking his head off!
We have tried a million things to get him to not bark but there's nothing we can do, he doesn't do it all the time just when there are noices outside, I joke with people that he's a BIG guard dog trapt in a little puggy body!
As for Wilbur sitting at my feet, he's a netured male so maybe this has something to do with it, but he HAS to be sitting on me... unless he's on his red pillows ofcourse! :)

According to my roommates, Kelly only barked and whined (or show any other form of excitement) when I came home. When they get home, she would walk up to them and sniff them, then go back to her bed and fall asleep again. When we lived at my parents' house, before her hearing and sight started to fail, she'd notice whenever we left/were in the process of leaving a room and would follow us. If we were not in the study, the first place she'd run to was the study room entrance cuz she'd assume that we were going to use the computer there. Then when her senses weren't too great, she wouldn't notice us leaving the room but when she woke up and saw/sensed that no one was in the same room, you can see her walk around the house looking for me. It's quite funny hiding from her and watching her as she makes her way around the house searching. Oh, and she loved to stand over my feet wherever I was at and make me give her belly rubs. Man, I miss my baby so much >.<

frank is hilariously dependent upon his older sister's hearing-- he waits for taxi (mutt sis)to give the signal from the living room that either mom or dad is home and then he starts whining his head off and wagging his tail so fiercely that i would not find it odd were he to actually levitate some day.
he's 1 year now so some of his more eccentric behaviors (tearing the box springs and mattress apart and then marking in the holes) have gone by the wayside to make new for his younger sister, bella (shih tzu). as the big bro he is the ultimate baby sitter (very encouraging and calm). he's also teaching her the pug modes of attack-- some of his fiercer black ninja moves (jump and turn a half circle in the air and then crouch down) that he reserves for special occasions. she's not really built for some of them but is definitely inheriting his fearlessness.
he is still a big fan of underwear. he still eats tons of raw fruit & vegetables-- he loves carrots. he often thinks of me and my husband as pieces of furniture and walks on arms, faces, chests, hair as if it were very necessary part of his master plan.
he also does this paw on human foot lean thing that lets me know we're part of the same pack. he nibbles on my ears and licks my makeup off.
he is a complete blessing to us.

My boy Jasper does all of the above. He even tries to prevent me from answering the door and the phone like it's gonna hurt me or something. The funniest is when "daddy" comes home. He gets all excited and runs around the livingroom like a mad man. He also follows me around the house as I do housework. I guess it's just how they are. I love it though!

My Little Bit always follows me to the bedroom even when it's not bed time and jumps right up to his "spot" on the pillow until I leave the room and he follows right behind. He does NOT like to be away from his mommy! That is why I love pugs, they love us soooooooo much that they can't live without us for even a second. When my boyfriend comes home from work, Little Bit has to find a toy to show him when he walks in the door. He follows him around like a little disciple with an offering for his god.

Wow...my pug, Chevy, never barks. He was one year old in November, 2006 and we may have heard him bark 5 or 6 times. He, however, is a whinner!!! He whines and grunts about everyting!! I have a female Yorkie, Kash, who is one month older than Chevy. She has been in her heat cycle for the last two weeks. Needless to say we haven't had any sleep trying to keep them apart. He has whinned and cried the whole time!! It is really sad. I told him we would not do that to him again!!
Does anyone else have a Pug that does not bark?
What about making a noise which sounds like they are choking only deeper? Chevy will wake us up in the night with a noise much like his trachea is collapsing. This has only happened twice but it scares us.
Chevy loves to attack my feet if I am wearing house slippers. He only does it to me and when I have house slippers on my feet, not socks or shoes!!!
It is amazing to read all of the forums and see how our Pugs all have the same or similar characteristics. Chevy is our first Pug and he is absolutely the best dog. As long as he thinks he is the center of attention and he thinks he is making us happy he does not care what else is going on.
I added a picture of Chevy and Kash!!

My puggy boy (14 months) does not bark at all. To attract my attention he kind of purrs. It is so sweet. He also always wants to go 'to bed'. He also grabs the tails of big dogs on our walks and hangs on for as long as possible and gets dragged along. When he sees birds in the garden he approaches them slowly and looks the other way. it is like if he can't see them they won't see him.

What you are going through sounds typical. Bean is always under our feet and if we are sitting in the chair she will sit at your feet and stare up at you until you let her up there. She wants to be lying next to you at all times. If I am in a chair, though, she is content to lie in her bed at my feet.
If the doorbell rings (either for real or on tv, or if someone knocks on the door) she will bark will hopping up and down in circles on her front paws. If you ask her, "Who is it?" she will also bark like someone is here.
If anyone else around us (with live in an apartment complex) has a car horn that sounds like my partner's when you set the alarm, that gets her riled too because she thinks he is home. I don't think any of this is anything to worry about, it is pretty typical. Matter of fact, these traits are so instilled in them that I have even heard of Puggle owners whose dogs still had these traits.
Bean says it's time to go to grandma's house!

My old pug ( no longer with us) does those things too. He was obsessed with my sister because she is always sleeping and i get up early so when i got back from our morning walk with him he would jump in my sisters bed and growl and lick her toes and chase our dauschand on her bed till she woke up it was thee cutest thing ever. Also whenever i got home he would do a backflip and would be so happy and he thought he was as big as my great dane.

Odd behaviors of my pug...
Couple times during the night, out of nowhere she will just start barking at the TV, nothing unusual happens or no unusual sounds but she just goes crazy and starts barking and a lot of the time it is hard to get her to stop!
When we go outside and she knows when we are going somewhere so she will run to the car, but once she gets to the car she starts flipping out! She sees herself I guess and starts growling and barking and running back and forth along the car trying to bite the car! Her growling doesn't sound like her normal growling, it's only different outside at the car.
Any tips on how to fix this?????
