All that time, the pug was the real Kwisatz Haderach.

He who controls the pugs, could probably make a good living breeding them with one another. What it's true.

Many pugs on Ix. Adorable pugs.

Get him and his little dog too.
I did not say this.
I am not here.

Huh? I don't remember this dog at all.
Neither do I. There are also some shots that almost look like CGI, and I don't remember them form the Lynch cut OR the Alan Smithee cut (my favorite). Did George Lucas get his hands on this?
I remember the pug, and thinking it was strange that there'd be such an earth-like animal in a sea of other films with space muppets, Star Wars or otherwise. I also liked the literal use of the weirding modules vs. Herbert's version. I'd also like to see Dune remade, shot for shot like Lynch's, with updated special effects, and the Doge dog instead of the pug, because he's irreplaceable.
I used to joke about the pug when my friends and I would have "Dune Night" back in the mid 90's. Battle-Pug!

In expanded Dune lore, the pug is a Ghola of a 2,000 year old Ixian who was the original Leto and wanted his DNA passed down to Paul and....OH GOD YOU CAN'T MAKE FUN OF THE LATER DUNE BOOKS WITHOUT IT ACTUALLY SOUNDING LIKE A LATER DUNE BOOK...
The first three form a perfect trilogy and are basically Dune as far as I'm concerned. Everything after that seems like a weird, desperate attempt to keep making fan-fictiony stories about the continuing adventures of Leto II and his clone friends or something.
I really didn't care for the books after the original Dune. Herbert had plenty of interesting ideas, but it seemed like he rushed Paul's ascension and dumped all of the good villains too quickly.
I actually liked God Emperor of Dune, but I know I'm in the tiniest of minorities for that. It did a nice job of wrapping up the remaining plot threads from the first three books and explored some interesting consequences of things that had been set up in earlier books.
The books after that were just unnecessary and dull, and also full of literal space Jews and weird bondage and kegel ninjas.
God Emperor fans represent
Giant human worm god makes for good reading. Changing Kegel Ninjas To Cum Vampires would have been a better choice, since at that point he knows he's writing schlock.
To be fair, Herbert's worst Dune books are fucking Citizen Kane compared to Brian Herbert's Dune books.

Wait the pug was in the throne room? Gurney rescued the pug during the Saradaukar attack and had it with him the whole time?! Holy shit that dog is awesome.
Yep, for all Gurney knew, the Pug was the last surviving member of House Atreides.
