Listen to Looch: pugs and social distance


This week, Mary Lucia talks about pugs (and other furry friends) in the time of social distancing. (Luke Taylor; Joseph Gallup | MPR)

We live in a time of social distancing. When you're out shopping, just stay six feet or whatever appropriate distance away from the person in front of you. Be safe. Wash your hands.

But when it comes to pugs, all rules are gone! And I'm actually glad, because I get probably more comfort and more safety from constantly having them next to me. I know a lot of you guys are super-duper familiar with the whole animal-dependency thing, so you know exactly what I'm talking about.

Love your pups, hold on to your kitties.

Keep them close.

How's it going for you? We care about how you're doing; please know we're here and listening, not just to music, but to you too. Let us know how you are.
