Dogs of this world have many responsibilities. Olive the pug is no exception to this rule.
First thing in the morning, she has to make sure one of her humans goes for a walk. It doesn’t matter if it’s raining or shining, snowing or hailing. They must get out of the house and walk down the street for a ways before they come back to their cup of black liquid and the morning news. It’s for their health after all.
Of course, it also gives a pug the chance to check all her pee-mails along the way and to leave some for her neighbor dog, Milo.
Because taking the human for a walk is such a taxing activity, it is essential to catch up on sleep. This keeps a pug busy for quite a few hours. Some days, however, she still has to wake up long enough to bark at the mail carrier. That’s a very important part of the day. She needs to let him know that bringing bills to the humans isn’t acceptable behavior because what if there’s not enough money left over for dog treats??
Then around 3:30 in the afternoon, it is of the utmost importance to wake up and remind the humans that a dog’s dinner time is approximately an hour away and they had best be prepared.
Humans can be so forgetful after all.
Plus a dog needs plenty of nutrition because that’s what fuels her to beg at the humans’ dinner table. The pug has found over the years that humans like to be entertained while they eat. A pug has to slap copious fives and to dance in a most graceful manner. The reward of a small piece of cheese or a spaghetti noodle is well worth the effort of making the humans laugh.
But for the next couple of weeks, Olive the pug has an even more important duty. She has to be a human sitter for Evan, the human, while her other humans are off on some trip or other. They will probably not even bring back a lousy t-shirt to reward this brave and fearless pup, but she does it all out of the goodness of her heart anyhow.
THE END (well, sort of)
Okay, I have many questions about Bloglovin but don’t even know how to ask them. I switched my reader over to Bloglovin, but do I have to do anything to my blog? Life is so complicated for humans as well as dogs. Of course, I don’t have time to mess with it now and will have to do it when we return from Norway on the 28th, but I will love any answers I can get. Thanks! And I will see you all soon…I hope…if I can find you…and you can find me.
Oh, Internet! Thy name is complication.
