Not everyone likes pug dogs but those who do, like them immensely. Chris Stephens spent this morning with a woman who likes pug dogs immensely. She had pug books and porcelain pieces and visiting cards and postcards and paintings of pugs. She's moving to smaller quarters and wanted Chris to buy it all.

Chris liked the woman even though she pestered him to take more than he wanted and pay more than they were worth.

Chris did take more of the pug stuff. His imagination is always captured by collections that someone has lovingly assembled. Chris was particularly intrigued by the older postcards and visiting cards featuring pugs with bright little eyes facing our present from out of the past.
