And this is Maggie, usually known as Mags or Miss Mags and sometimes Piglet. She is a four-year-old Boston Terrier (A/K/A Boston Terrorist!). Active, bossy, companionable, funny. Fearless, except for thunder and lightning. (They make her think "Lap! Quick!") She loves nothing better than a long prairie-ride in our side-by-side UTV and rarely criticizes my driving.

Today is nail-cutting day. She doesn't like it, but she's very patient with me. She knows she gets a cookie at the end of the ordeal and she looks forward to that.

Looks like what we call a "pug." I wonder if they are the same breed?

No, that's a different breed. I believe Pugs are originally Chinese, while Bostons are "All-American." When I was kid they were sometimes called Boston Bulls, and indeed they are like little bulldogs. They are really great companions.
