The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
It’s apt that these cute little charmers have such wrinkly faces, considering they are quite an ancient breed. Pugs date back to the Chinese Shang Dynasty, in fact, which reigned from around 1766 to around 1122 B.C.
They were kept as pets by Tibetan monks before being exported to Japan. In the late 16th and early 17th centuries, Dutch East India Trading Company sailors brought Pugs back to Holland, where they became the official dog of the Dutch Royal family. Their popularity soon spread to Europe and even Queen Victoria kept and bred them.
Pugs have travelled far across the globe in their time. Today, we wouldn’t send these playful and affectionate dogs back home for all the tea in China.
