What Makes Joseph Souza Unique?Joseph Souza channels pugs. Yes. Pugs. You know pugs. The dog breed. The ones with the mudge-faces. Well, Joseph Souza can channel their most private inner dialogue. At least, he can do this with one pug in particular- Lily.
"For seventeen years, I have been able to channel my pug's innermost thoughts and convey them to my wife and kids in a voice that somewhat resembles Elmo's voice."This skill is apparently not limited by space or dimension. Joseph Souza feels certain that he will be able to continue chanelling Lily-the-Pug's thoughts indefinitely.
"When, and if this pug passes on to the next realm, I hope to continue relaying her spiritual messages and thoughts. At first my family thought me crazy but now they realize Lily's authentic voice. "Someday, he may write a book about his experiences. Sadly, that book will not be featured here. Unless he's channeling Lily, who can guide his family to safety during the zombie apocalypse. Everyone knows dogs are the first ones to recognize the infected. Yeah, that'd be cool.
