Poor wee Lola Pug hasn’t had a lot of play dates with her regular buddies recently, and it’s really starting to show in her behaviour.
She is WAY more beansie than normal – my sore and bitten ankles and toes can attest to her masses of unspent energy – and I think she (shockingly) needs a little bit of canine companionship.
I don’t know what tipped me off to that….
Sweetie…we have a few play dates coming up with some of your best friends…you think you can hold off until then?
For such an antisocial pug, you sure need your friends, little one.
With a few notable exceptions (onions, tomato greens, grapes and raisins, for example), fruits and vegetables are great for dogs.
One of Lola’s best friends prefers snow peas to just about anything else, and another buddy is completely crazy for carrots. Teething puppies often get relief from frozen carrots. A clever and nutritious teething ring, of sorts.
Lola, being the sensitive-bellied creature that she is, only gets her veggies in stuffy format…but that doesn’t seem to phase her.
She’s holding onto it with the power of her formidable lips, alone, I tell you.
