From the Inside Flap
In "Pugs in Public" we meet Tuck, a fawn alpha male who roams his owner's prestigious art gallery all day, except during his three o'clock break for biscuits at the Four Seasons Hotel. Mikey reviews portfolios at one of New York City's hottest modeling agencies, while Juliette is the receptionist at a Midtown pharmacy, and Pee Wee is the de facto maitre d' at a chic caf.
Pug people are also depicted. "New Yorker" cartoonist Victoria Roberts poses with Pogo, her best friend and artist's model. Sportcaster Marv Albert is here, with his pugs Lulu and Ruby. Even the Bishop of New York, the Right Reverend Richard F. Grein, appears in full ecclesiastical dress with his adored pug Bruno.
"Pugs in Public" is a delicious collection of color and black-and-white photographs that celebrates the eccentric world of pugs and their owners. From pugs that go to work to pugs in costumes to pugs at tea, this book showcases this impish, comical, and enormously popular breed, which is never happier than when occupying center stage.
