Andrew is a 14-year-old boy with autism, and his favorite thing in the entire world is pugs. When he was little, Andrew didn’t have a lot of friends, and so he created a cast of imaginary friends to hang out with — who, for some reason, all happened to be pugs.
Andrew’s family has always lived in places where dogs aren’t allowed, and so he’s never been able to have a pug of his own. His obsession has stayed strong throughout the years, though, and he owns a ton of pug-themed things, including backpacks, T-shirts, a wallet and keychains. As Andrew’s 14th birthday approached, his sister wanted to do something special for him, and soon came up with the idea for a pug-themed party.
