How to Make a Monster

Let me start by saying that The Pug is an early riser, thanks to my work schedule in her puppyhood that had me up and alert waaaaaay before the sun even thought about making an appearance.

Thankfully, this is not the schedule I need to keep these days, but old habits die hard (or just never die), so I often find myself with a relentless, dancing pug on my face at the most inhumane of hours.

Well. To cut to the chase, I decided a few weeks ago that I would get more sleep if I brought her water bowl to bed so that neither of us would have to get up for her post-breakfast morning water break.

Yup. I brought the mountain to Mohammed.


…and now Mohammed has learned that I am the source of All Things Room Service, and I SWEAR she now “boofs” at the bowl beside the bed JUST for the thrill of watching me serve her water on command.

I’m brilliant.

Once again, outwitted by my pug.

I shudder to think what clever thing I’ll teach her next.

  2. I can totally relate! Scarlet prefers to drink from my water glass than her own special red mug. I’ve trained me well. Yeah.

    • Mama tries to share her water with me sometimes, but it’s got her cooties in it, so I always respectfully snub my nose at her. I don’t like to share my water. Or my food. Or my mama.


  3. Splendid job, Lola. Absolutely splendid. We salute you and hope to learn from your example.

    Mohammed as a pug- let’s try to keep this from going viral.


  7. Lola Pug, you are such a hoot! I have a feeling you and your Mum were absolutely made for each other!!!


  8. This is awesome. I need to make my humans bring my room service at all times too. Don’t worry, I’m starting this talk NOW.
