Dogs are awesome. They are except when they are annoying and need attention. But even then, they are so cute. They follow you around all day long and hang on every word you say. To be honest, to them, everything sounds like: “come here, let’s play till we drop.”
An artist called Gemma Gené shared her newest comic about everyday life with her pug named Mochi. And they are simply adorable, mainly because every one of us dog owners sees ourselves in her comic.
If you would like to see more oh her comics, you can do it on her official page.
Gemma is from Barcelona in Spain, but she lives in New York. She is a true artist, and besides painting she also does sculpting. But her most famous work is her pub comic strip. In her comics she features Mochi, herself, her husband Peli, and Mochi”s brothers Huey and Duey.
"Mochi is a very happy and sweet pug that sees life in a particular way. He is super sweet and well behaved, but he can be very sassy and pretty much does whatever he wants,” Gemma said on her website. “His favorite activities include sleeping, eating and going for walks, especially when he is being carried."
Gemma started the cartoon ‘157 of Gemma’ back in 2012 as a means of escape from her Architecture final thesis but stopped in 2013 when she moved to New York. She couldn’t stay away for too long, so she began drawing the comic about Mochi in 2014.
If the first thing that comes to your mind is adopting a pug, it is quite understandable. But there are some things specific to this breed that you should be aware of. Chloe Tejada from Canadian Living says that before she got the dog, she didn’t know that pugs follow their owners everywhere. Absolutely everywhere.
Pugs are not the healthiest breed, and they can suffer from a bunch of health issues. Food allergies, breathing problems are just a few of them. So, they need a lot of care, compared to some more resilient breeds. And they tend to shed a lot.
