I've had 12 in the last 20 years. They are the funnest dogs. We presently have one pug and a pug/chihuahua mix and they're just so entertaining to be around. Every year, my organization hosts Pug Camp in Poyntelle, PA and it's the greatest weekend. Pugs and their humans raising money for rescues and having a great time in the mountains.
Favorite Colours: Yellow, I also love green. Favorite Places to visit: Portobello Road Market, West London on Saturdays, I've bought some great bits from the Flea-market (& I grew up there in the 50s/60s). Favorite Foods: A good curry, toad-in-the-hole, rhubarb crumble & of course chocolate. Favorite booze: Red wine esp. rioja, & bourbon (Bulleit & Knob Creek), but no bourbon this year until the end of April. Favorite Clothes: I was wearing it today, a long green Swiss army coat, looks very stylish (bought from a stall in Portobello Market). Favorite Holidays: I'm retired, every day's a holiday. Favorite TV series: Mad Men, totally brilliant, just the last episode to watch, maybe tomorrow. Favorite Animals: I don't like pets (that's the audience lost), I've always had a soft spot for horses. Favorite Pastimes: Walking (I just love walking) & the usual stuff: reading, listening to music, watching films. Favorite Singers: The late great hippy Kevin Ayers is my favourite singer. Kevin who? Well he never had a hit, but his seventies albums are all brilliant. Favorite Art: I love a bit of colour. I love pulp art for paperbacks & magazines (esp. horror & science fiction) & have several books of the stuff. Favorite types of music: Baroque, 20th Century orchestral, pop (mostly seventies) & soundtracks. Favorite People: Family (they're a good bunch) & about three old friends that I'm still in touch with.
