Thanks, everyone. You are all reinforcing my thoughts on Stewie's weight. He seems very fit to me, and I hope to keep him that way. He's extremely active, so I don't think it will be much of a problem.
The problem with what you read about pugs and what they are all about is that it's generally about the ridiculous AKC standards. Most pugs are larger than the akc standard and that makes any "acceptable" weight range worthless.
He looks positively athletic!
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, till the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
My Ben is pure bone and muscle. He's 4 now and weighs 22 lbs.......not an ounce of fat on him. The number 14 pug in the country in 2011!
