Although protesters call the breed a "designer mutt," Puggle owners propose that the breed is the product of "intelligent design" because of its complexity. Puggle breeders (In conjunction with The Heritage Foundation) have presented a new theory of evolution that they believe clearly explains the Puggle's origin. (The diagram has reportedly stoked further violence in the Middle East, and caused controversy in Southern public schools.)
In a related story, Money Magazine recently listed the Puggle as the most popular and expensive dog in the U.S., with prices for puppies reaching upwards of $2000. Democrats in the Senate fear that the Puggle's expense could also underscore the widening gap between the "haves" and "have-nots" of our own society, making the breed less accessible to the shrinking American Middle Class.
