BLURB

Sit!’ The pug gave his owner his right paw. ‘Hand!’ The pug did a little jump.
The pug hates the dry cat biscuit in between his owner’s fingers, every time she tells him to do some tricks, he would sniff her hand and do the tricks wrong deliberately. ‘Why you treat me like I am your old dead cat? Are you mad or what? Do we look the same?!’ The pug thought. The owner tries to ask him for performing more tricks and suddenly realized cats don’t like to take orders. ‘OK, dear pussy, I will JUST feed you loads fresh Salmon and chicken.’ The owner said to the pug ‘Nevermind, I like chicken anyways!’ The pug faced to his owner with his most gentle eyes ‘ Oh you silly woman!’ [Dorothy Fu]
