The Pugville Chronicles is about family.
It's a story about how brothers compete, how people unite, and how truth and right always win. It's about how choices and attitudes tell your past and predict your future. And it's the only recorded history of how pugs came to run the world.
It's a story about three pugs forced by calamity to forge a new world of their own making. The people who raised them are gone and the world they loved has blown down and flooded under. They are separated and isolated by endless water, and they make a life out of what, where, and with whom they have survived.
It's an adventure of learning and growing and surviving and succeeding. It's a parable of taking opposite meanings from the exact same lessons. It's an allegory of how best intentions stand scrutiny.
Families are built by love and families are built by force. Life philosophies are matched at odds, and hubris sows the seeds of its own demise. Truth begets justice, and omnia vincit amor: love conquers all. Happily finds ever after... for now. Two opposite places of two opposite people are left separated only by distance. What adventures lie ahead? Watch this space.

About the Author

Michael Dean Jacobs is an actor and comedian from Southern California. He has been seen in movies, TV, nightclubs, and regional theatre since the late 20th century. Michael began his writing career when skits were popular on television, and when television was furniture with antennae.
This is Michael’s first novel, crafted from the many stories related to him by Mr. Thompson. His canine experience is limited to dogs with pronounced noses, still he finds spiritual connection with all pedigrees, talking or otherwise. Michael currently resides in one large room with a typewriter somewhere in the hills beyond Las Vegas.

Kevin E. Thompson is a businessman, family man, and pug poppa emeritus from Southern California. Kevin developed the story of Pugville and the adventure of its creation over a lifetime of intense briefings from his loving pugs Rufio, Tinkerbelle, their parents and siblings. We have Kevin to thank for translating this history from the original pug. Kevin and his family make their home in the old neighborhood where our story begins, just down the block from the old jungle.
It is a cherished ambition for Kevin to bring these stories to the printed page, and his expertise as executive, mentor, and producer has given life to The Pugville Chronicles in a series of volumes, the first of which is proudly enclosed herein. Further volumes, including a prequel, are already in production. These chronicles presented as motion pictures cannot be far behind.
Kevin and his family are tireless supporters of children’s causes, and he hopes The Pugville Chronicles will be a source of inspiration, education, and practical application for years to come.
