Challenge #2

Can you draw a pug laughing?

Did you know: The Pug’s motto is the Latin phrase “multum in parvo” (a lot in a little)—an apt description of this small but muscular breed. They come in three colors: silver or apricot-fawn with a black face mask, or all black. The large round head, the big, sparkling eyes, and the wrinkled brow give Pugs a range of human-like expressions—surprise, happiness, curiosity—that have delighted owners for centuries.

Challenge #3

Can you draw your fist and then draw a pug face on it?

Did you know: The word Pug may have come from an old word meaning fist, because its head is round and squished and looks like your fist, or from a kind of monkey, the marmoset pug monkey, that looked like the dog.
