Getting Attention

*Sigh* Mommy's been ignoring me a lot lately. First of all, she hasn't been home much and second, when she is home she doesn't play with me. Although, we did go to the dog park for two hours Monday night. But still, the time she spends with me is not enough.

Sunday night, I decided I was going to change all of that, so I did everything I wasn't supposed to and when she told me "No" or "Drop It" or "Leave It" I ignored her. I played the "Opposites Game." It was fun. I bit her hand a lot and she didn't seem to like it but at least it invoked some reaction out of her.

But, I back talked her all night which got me yelled at, but I didn't care because we were interacting.

Anyway, if you want to know how to get a humans attention, this is what you do:

First, you pout and look as miserable as possible. For pugs, that is not difficult to do.
If that doesn't work get angry. Get very angry. They'll see you're upset and that you're planning to do something mischievous and they'll pay attention to you.

It is obvious I am very unhapppy here. My human laughed at me.

Now I'll bark at her!

Mommy told me "Quiet" so I shook my head "no" and barked again.
Well, she told me "Quiet" and "Be still" so I decided to pounce on her.
Should I? I'm not sure if I should, then she might get really mad?

Oh well, I'm going for it!
I jumped on Mommy's lap and tried to chew on her fingers, but she hates that and I got yelled at. Mean Mommy. I tried to bite her fingers again and she shoved me and yelled "OFF." I think I made her really mad.

Just put your camera away woman and play with me!

I barked at her again, only this time I was angry.

Back talking wasn't working too much, and I got bored. So, I chased my tail.

I really like your barky face! Very fierce. I like biting fingers as well but my mom doesn't seem to appreciate it either. Grrr.

Aww you naughty little thing. You must ask your mummy to give that little face of yours a big kiss on my behalf!
