My mum is one of those people. she takes her pug in the fenced playgrounds around here when she takes dd and ds to the park even though she usually ties her up to a seat or something, it drives me nuts. Usually the poor pug is smothered by toddlers and kids and I feel sorry for it. But she doesn't get there is no difference to her doing it and someone with another breed of dog. She thinks pugs are the equivalent of people and should get special treatment .
