I believe pugs are born with a genetic disposition to perch themselves on the top of the couch cushions. My first couch was a hand-me-down from my husband’s parents who’s pug Jojo spent so much time lounging in this position the cushions became deformed beyond recognition. I thought my new couch would be spared the same fate until one day, totally out of the blue, the seat of the couch was no longer enough for dear Ruby. No matter how hard I try to break her of this new habit she can’t be kept down. Am I the only one dealing with this strange quirk?
