10 Puggy Pet Peeves

Thank you to everyone for sympathizing with us over the loss of our kitty brother. We miss him terribly but know that time will make things better.

So to lighten the mood, I'm sharing 10 puggy pet peeves.

1) Blaming your smelliness on me. Whether it be because you were too lazy to bathe or you tooted, blaming the pug is never cool.

2) Yelling at me for barking. I bark. That's how I communicate. Get over it.

3) Taking me for a walk and then not letting me check things out. Um, whose walk is this for anyway? You're constantly rushing me when there are so many great things to smell.

4) Stop trying to teach me the trick of balancing food on my nose or any tricks. I don't have a nose. This stresses me out. I want just the treat.

5) Stop putting things on my head like hats. This is why I chew up pee pads and stuff while you are gone. I'm annoyed. Or maybe bored. I forget easily.

6) The ole "fake" fetch throw. Really this is mean. Yes, it fools me every time but hey aren't you humans supposed to be at the top of the food chain? Do you really need to prove it even in a game of fetch? I have almost caught on, be prepared.

7) The vet. The vet always includes things like being made to throw up, sticking things up my butt or surgery for just a little "snip." (this one is for Lincoln) Then you act surprised when I dislike the place in the future. Um, nothing good happens there.

8) Getting upset when I sniff crotches of guests. Hello, no one has taught me to use the "handshake" I'm just checking them out.

9) When I sneeze in your face and you then you whine that I'm doing it on purpose. I sneeze. You sneeze. I can't put my paw over my nose when I know it's coming.

10) That you become disgusted when I lick myself. Aren't you always complaining I smell? My recently deceased cat brother licked himself and no one complained....I ain't saying but I'm just saying...

Raise your paw if you understand.

  1. Paw raised! I had my mom read this one twice so it would really sink in for her.
    P.S. I have to confess that I really like the vet. For me, vet = treats!

  2. Minnie
    I believe my paw is visible from CA to your neck of the woods!!! So true, so true... especially the sneeze thing.
    Love Noodles

  3. Here, here! #11. Putting my food storage bin on top of the fridge. How am I supposed to reach it way up there?! Love, Sid

  4. (two paws in the air)!

    I'd like to add another one....the humans pissing and moaning about me SHEDDING! HELLLL---LLLLOOOOO???? Every pet book out there will tell you that fawn puggies SHED LIKE CRAZY! Did you not think to read that chapter BEFORE you brought me home??? It's not MY fault that stooopid mom always wears black and that all of her lint rollers lost their stickiness!

    Good list Minnie and Lincoln! You guys are a couple of great Puggy activists!!!


  5. Two paws raised!

    Pug love from,
