The other day mom picked me up from daycare (like usual) only today she didn't seem like her normal happy self. We quickly got into the car, no filtered water or extra hugs for me, and we just drove home. Yup, no Katy Perry blasting, no Lady Gaga well gaga-ing, nope just silence. Mom seemed very distracted, not really giving me the love I'm so accustomed to. We get home, after a few stops for mom to just breathe (weird huh?), and she just hands me off to dad. No big "We're Home!" song and dance we like to do, no (gulp!) feeding me...she just takes off to the bedroom.
Dad explained that mom had a migraine headache and needed me to be extra good. I understood. I didn't go down the hallway asking mom to come out, I didn't bark at the birds in the backyard...nope I was on my best behavior. When we went in a few hours later to wake mom up, I just tip-toed in and gave her my "I understand" orbs. She said she felt a little better, but not 100%, so I did what any pug in this situation could do...sleep.
I made sure I didn't bother her all night. I just slept and quickly went potty when we went outside, but I was a perfect angel. Mom and I went to bed early, and when she woke up the next morning, she was back to her loud Italian self....and the best news...she gave me extra love for being so good. Ahhh...all was well.
So I ask all you fellow friends...when your human isn't feeling 100% and they need that extra pug attention, are you in tune with that? Do you behave yourself or do you just know when something isn't right? It's our job to put smiles on their faces, and I know I earned my pug wings.
Oh and yes my bed is inside out....one day I got mad at it and made it my bitch. 'Nuff said.
