In the past year I have come to discover how wrong the author is on several points. When I first got my pug I wanted a sturdy little companion, who could keep up with me on hikes (and be small enough to carry when he couldn't), Maggitti seemed to discourage this when he advised they don't need much exercise (are too sensible to care for such doggy things), preferring to be indoors and on one's lap. Well, our little pug quickly bonded with our black Lab and has become something different - SuperPug! - the world's fittest pug. He doesn't mind staying outside for hours (playing with the Lab, chasing and fetching balls and sticks, or just hanging out being a dog), even in the winter snow and cold. As for hiking, he can go for hours and miles (although not so well in the summer heat). This makes me happy, for now I see he can have the best of both worlds - a real dog who likes being a dog (he has even learned to howl at the passing trains from his Anatolian big brother), and also absolutely loves humans (any humans...), and the perks of princely life (from looking for other dogs on the TV, to playing "rodeo-pug", or "whirling dervish-pug" or "Siberian tiger-pug", or simply getting to be on the couch or lap or bed when all other dogs are banished to the floor), and just being himself, "Pema Winston Hillary Little-Satan Pug".
My wife says I'm writing this review just "to extol the virtues of my little pug". Which does appear to have happened. But my point is to point out that your pug can be more than the kind of dog described in this book/guide. They are dogs after all, albeit exceptionally endearing.
Instead of this book, I'd recommend The Complete Idiot's Guide to Pugs, a thorough, sensible, and useful guide to all aspects of Pugdom.
