Pugs in Middle Earth

Aaron and I went to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug tonight. I always thought the best thing about Lord of the Rings was the amazing cinematography. Sweeping views of Middle Earth, aka New Zealand. The Hobbit, however, seemed to have too much CG. So many scenes looked too fake.

It was entertaining however. And my favorite part? The pugs! I don't mean these Hobbit pugs, I mean the pugs in the Hobbit. In the village of Laketown, there is a scene with two pugs sniffing along a pier. The grainy screenshot above was the only picture of the scene I could find online. Turns out they were Peter Jackson's pugs!
