Saturday Mix: A Pug Life #amwriting #flashfiction #pugs 

Thanks to Lorraine from MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie for hosting Saturday Mix. We have a cute tale to tell this week, life from a pug’s view. You can see the little guy/gal below:

“So you’re home. It’s about time, I had to go outside and use the grass but you took your sweet time coming home today. You shouldn’t do that — I hate going on the rug because you label me a ‘bad dog.’ But I’d like to see you hold it from 8:30 am until 6:00 pm at night. 

Oh by the way, I ate kibble for breakfast and supper and you were stingy on the foods scraps. I live for table scraps. Well that and going to the offleash park but I’m feeling suspicious. Last Saturday you promised the off leash park and instead I ended up at the V-E-T. I know what that means now! 

The V-E-T is a nasty guy, he cut my nails, a couple so short they bled. And those ‘shots,’what did I ever do to you but love you? You deserved it when I ignored you the next two days.” 

“Here Carla, treat Carla. Sit pretty!”

“Oh yes, you said treat! I want it now. I’ll beg, sit pretty, act all lovey, whatever you want!!!”

  1. i think you really got into that cutie’s head and my Riley too – she looks at me with the same expression and thoughts – this was so pretty to read – that’s how i can describe no other way – just so pretty!

    1. I’m glad I did. I have to live at home b/c of my health right now and we had a dog, she passed away about four years ago. I miss her very much and she was my girl so I definitely know all those doggy looks and ideas. They are single minded but very loving 🙂 Thanks for reading and the compliment.

      1. my other dog passed on last year too and i had to move home! i miss him so much it hurts to think about him – they are apart of us and i know how you feel – your girl knew you loved her much!

      2. Thanks, caused me to cry almost lol. I know she did. The reality of a dog’s life is it is so short, and never long enough for those who love them. Sometime if I find the right one I hope to get a knew one. Nikki was very hairy and needed a great deal of exercise (running) so maybe something smaller and short haired would be nice. Something like a pug but now quite 🙂

  2. You have captured just what I think goes on inside a dog’s mind. The pug in the picture forgave a lot for his “cookie” (treat).
    It is very sad when a pet passes — they are a member of the family to be sure. People don’t always realize just how special a relationship can develop between an animal and a person.
