Playing the Game
Okay, okay. I get it. I am almost 3 years old so I totally KNOW the score. Do a TRICK and get a TREAT.
I have even perfected a few moves, like the one above - the HIGH FIVE. I can do that one in my SLEEP! In fact, I think I HAVE done it in my sleep a time or two just to score the inevitable TREAT.
Another trick I have mastered is the SHAKE. It looks just like the HIGH FIVE but it isn't at all. If I had a picture of it, you would see that my HUMAN'S hand is in a totally DIFFERENT position. This is what makes it a SHAKE.
I am an extremely accomplished KNUCKLE PUNCH pug, too. Okay, I know what you are gonna say (or would if I had a PICTURE of that one, too) it looks just like the HIGH FIVE and the SHAKE; but again, look at the HUMAN'S hand for a clue. It is so cool and I get LOTS of oohs and aahs when I do it.
I also do the LIE DOWN and PLAY DEAD. They also look like the same trick BUT THEY TOTALLY ARE NOT because I don't THINK they are. After all . . . one is LIE DOWN and the other is, ummm, PLAY DEAD.
In any case, performing these tricks are a guarantee of TREAT every time - so I do them . . . OVER and OVER and OVER again.
It is the PUG way.
