Re-PUG-nantly Honest

This week one of my 5 year old students made the funniest observation

We were looking at the -ug word family (tug, hug, bug, etc.) when I showed him this picture:

(old school clip art on index cards!)
Without a moments hesitation he blurts, "gremlin dog!" 

Because of course a Pug looks like a gremlin to a 5 year old

I mean no disrespect to Pugs and their people, but I kind of feel like this description is spot on. 
I am a HUGE dog person (Smidgey much?) but when I heard my student say this with such conviction I had to agree.

Take a look...don't you see the resemblance around the eyes...nose...mouth?
When they're dry and during the day...

..."Pug-et about it!"

 Anyway, I love the way kids view the world (and dogs!) It makes my heart happy.
