Dogs get hemorrhoids too. Take him to a vet. Sounds like impacted anal glands. Dogs have two glands next to their anus. They must be emptied regularly (during baths, etc.). Your vet can also do this for you. Usually dragging his bottom is a sign of this. Simply emptying those glands should solve the problem. The majority of the time a dog drags it's butt across the capet is that is has worms. I do not reccoment squeezing your dog's anal glands until your dog proves he needs help with it. You will know when your dog has a problem with his anal glands because they will swell. If you do it once for your dog it will lose it's ability to do it on it's own. Only mess with them if you absolutely have to!!! - x1

Why do dogs rub their butt on the carpet?

There are two main reasons why reason number 1 your dog needs to go poop. You see there are certain glands on a dogs butt that pop when a dog poops if they are not poped they can get preety itchy and the dog will try and pop them. Reason number two your dog has worms if you know your dog has this don't worry about him rubbing his butt on your carpet but if he just went poop and he is still itching/ rubbing get him checked on by your local vet. Finally your dog could just be itchy if he only does it for a short period of time and only once and not the next day etc.

How do you stop a dog from licking the carpet?

It depends why it is licking the carpet. It seems to me that the dog may be thristy, and its mouth is very dry, I know it seems weird, but the dog may not have enough saliva in its mouth. I suggest you start giving your dog more water to drink, and there's another option, take it to the vet! this is wrong!

Is bum a good name for a dog?

I would say so. I think that it is a perfect name for a pug especially! You would be like, "Hello Bum" "How are you Bum" "Had a good day Bum" "Who's a good bum, who's a good Bum" It is a bit funny as well. My advice, you would be calling your dog over and people would hear you saying Bum a lot of times. They would think you have something wrong with you or you are seriously weird! So my opinion is not to name your dog that!! LOL :]
