Huhu Udo2009 !
Wenn Du den Begriff ins Wörterbuch eingetragen haben willst, dann müsstest Du das weiter unten in der Rubrik "Neuer Eintrag für LEO" beantragen. Dazu gehören dann aber auch die entsprechenden Wörterbuch- und/oder Kontextbelege für beide Sprachen, wie in der "Bedienungsanleitung" in dem dicken blauen Feld angegeben :

Beispiele, wie das aussehen sollte, finden sich hier reichlich, z.B. die Neuvorschläge von Agalinis, Wachtelkönig, AMS, Norbert Juffa... um nur ein paar zu nennen ...

Just for the record, your 'example' isn't correct.

'Snug as a bug in a rug' is a saying, but in it, 'snug' is an adjective, not a verb.

'Snug (down)' may exist, perhaps especially in some BE dialects, but in my experience it isn't at all common. 'Snuggle' is much more appropriate for learners.

That 's what you get when copying something from the WWW on the spur of the moment without much further thinking...

"Snug as a bug in a rug" means to be very very comfortable. - I agree with you.

However, the Oxford Dictionary lists "to snug" as a verb - see my first post.

A correct example would be: "I'd like to snug like a bug in a rug" ... (?)
