Other pugs,4 look like Brindled,and others are just very worn giving them the very pale appearance .

Yep I agree ,I have a couple of other plans as well including a week end mothing at craggs and leaving traps(as many as poss) out all night we are sure to get a great selection in early July..and a couple of leaf mining sessions later on in the year.
