And the gold medal goes to...Hugo?

I have an idea but it's a little...far fetched. Just hear me out.

I think I have a pretty good shot at qualifying for the next Olympic games. I'm not sure which sport I should play though, so I need some help with that. Is there an event that just requires speed, agility, and good looks? Because I could totally gold medal in that! I have began my training even though I'm pretty sure dogs aren't allowed to participate. I am hoping after they see how fast and shockingly good looking I am, they will make an exception? Maybe I could start a petition, I don't know. Okay so let me know what you think of my training so far....

I am usually super great at fetch but I got distracted toward the last part of the fetching process. We will have to work on that.

Here I am working on my upper body strength!

What's everyone think? Am I the next gold medalist? What event should I try out for?

DO try this at home

Mom and I come across a lot of pugs that don't seem to have a sassy bone in their body. They just sit there like angelic little creatures while people 'ooh' and 'aww' over them. (Scoutie, I'm looking at you!) My theory is they are just hiding their secret sassy ways to get copious amounts of pets and treats all day long because I just don't see how they hold it in! I can't help but let my sassy flag fly all day long!

Here is one sassy thing I do to mom almost every day. Peyton is a giant camel dog and likes to drink all my water before I can get to it so I have to alert mom in a loud and very Hugo like way. I have created a step by step program so you can recreate this at home:

1. Flip your bowl over and scoot it towards your human.
2 & 3. When your human ignores you because apparently she has better things to do *cough* mom! *cough* flip that bowl again. Try to pick the bowl up with your teeth while standing inside of the bowl so you can't really pick it up - but you try anyway.
4. Sassy bark your head off.
5. Give her the innocent eyes and she will probably stop doing whatever it is that is apparently more important than her adorable pug. If this doesn't work, repeat step four.
6. Enjoy the sweet fruits of your labor!

If your human is especially slow, increase the volume of your sassy bark. It works like a charm.

Pug Hugs!
