Yes, me too, re: pugs!
Missy kind of takes the place of having a cat. I can't imagine you having a mouse doing whatever it wants to with her around.
Uhm, yes. That's how my beagle, Tim-Ben, got sprayed by a skunk, and his mom, Snoopy, was bitten by a rattlesnake. They aren't going to let anything get by them!
