    MAKE PEACE WITH PUGS!!!

    So basically, anyone who knows me knows I'm quite literally OBSESSED with pugs.

    So imagine my surprise when JUST THIS MORNING I discovered that there's a NATIONAL HOLIDAY IN JAPAN WHERE PEOPLE DRESS UP THEIR PUGS IN HEADSCARVES!!!!!!!!!!!!

    8/9はパグの日。なぜかほっかむりをしながら、パグ&ピースで平和を考える日。 #パグの日 #パグライフ生命 #パグ

    Oh yeah...and it's TODAY.

    HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS?!?!?!?!

    Because I would've flown to Japan.
