Puppy selection (part 1)

“Bad advice” or A brief guide to parenting (part 2)

Back to the walks.
My, well, that is, the mistress, knows if there is a thunderstorm, then I need to get out before the rain. It’s not a royal thing to walk on wet grass. And even more so in the puddles. I won’t go to any.
But to wallow in the snow is a nice thing.
We live in a private house, so our snow is clean, not trampled, without salt and all kinds of engine impurities. This is even if the mistress walks along the paths, and we (pugs) along the snowdrifts, but into catch-ups.And I don’t need any overalls there. Well, except when the frost was -30 degrees. That’s when I flaunted in overalls. Teplenko. But not very convenient.
I even felt sorry for the mistress: it’s until you shove everyone into overalls, and then back. This is a lot of time.
It’s good that our winters are not very cold, not like in the old days (I really didn’t exist then, and my mistress too). Yes, severe frosts are bad.
As, however, and intense heat.
If you want to enjoy the coolness in the heat while lying under the air conditioner in an embrace with your favorite toy, and not on the tile in the bathroom, do this:
– On the street, begin to suffocate, and at home portray a jellyfish thrown from the sea to the shore.
In the worst case scenario, they will put you in a basin of cold water, and some nasty drops will begin to drip onto your tongue. At best, they’ll buy air conditioning the next day.

So, more – Campaigns on a visit.
There are 2 options: either to go with you, or not to linger. And then I somehow heard the phrase:
– “It was late, spent the night at a party …”
Ha, this is not about mine. My guests do not linger. We must be fed and taken to the street.
– “And we, (pugs), miss you alone!” They (the owners, that is) think so. We were not bored. Well, nothing, let them be tormented by remorse, useful.

Here is what is not very happy:
From time to time, our mother (not a whopper, understandably) begins to “play Aibolit.” In childhood, perhaps not enough! Eyes, ears, a fold over the nose – this is a must-have set, the rest as needed.
Starts with the oldest and until everyone understands, does not calm down. Hiding and resisting is useless. I tried it. Back in childhood. Does not help.

It is our owners who think that they educate us, train us. But in fact, they succumb to training no worse than us. Do you remember the moment when you were taught to walk nearby ?! Didn’t the host adjust to your pace of walking? Here it is.
Or eating (a favorite topic). The owners do not even need to be reminded: “They say, it is necessary to share. We are a family”. The reflex of dividing the host piece of cheese or chicken is worked out to be automatic.

But the most “golden” time comes when your owners decide that it would be nice if your beloved dog has offspring. This is where you can show yourself, as they say, in all its glory. From the first day of mating, whether you are pregnant or not (and this is only known to you) you will be worn with you like a “written bag”.
During feeding, when they put a bowl of food in front of you – do not rush to eat. Suddenly they’ll give something tastier. You can poke fun for a day or two. And they will start to persuade you: “Eat for mom, eat for dad” and for your grandmother and grandfather and for all relatives according to your pedigree. It is very entertaining to eat the whole portion served from one hand at a time, reveling in the attention to your person. Especially if the owner is somewhere in a hurry, or the rest of the pack has already eaten and is waiting only for you.
And while you carefully chew each meal, the rest of the pugs go around you in the hope that either the hostess will have patience, or your appetite will finally be lost, and the rest of the feed will go to them as an additive. (Ha! Does the pug lose his appetite ?! Have you ever heard that? Well, unless he got sick.)
You can have a fight with other dogs for your own pleasure. Not up to blood, so, more to the mind. Even if you’re wrong, do you think they will punish you? No matter how. You should not be nervous.
Somewhere from half the gestation period, pretend to be a “crystal vase” and refuse to walk up the stairs. You will be carried in your arms back and forth. And what?
Everyone knows that we, pugs, have long lived at the court of the Chinese emperors. We were cherished and cherished, worn on special stretchers. So why be surprised ?!

I wanted to write more about the exhibitions, but I think that’s enough for today. Next time. I was tired of knocking something on the keyboard, folding letters into words. More corn will be. And the hostess is about to return.
On this, let me take my leave.
I would be glad if my tips come in handy.
