3. By the Third Entry, You Will Likely Notice a Theme

Since there are so many pugs to make the rounds, the internet wisely groups them into specific categories. "Sad pugs," "Happy Pugs, "Pugs That Look Like Batman": these are all lists you're likely to stumble on, and all serve to prolong the life of pugs on the internet. Just ask the meta-pug above.
