Save your best material for when it really counts
Good day friends. Some of you may find this weeks wisdom rather difficult to employ. It will go against your very core. That's OK. Just enjoy the read, and observe the master.
I have held on to this particular nugget of wisdom for a long time now. It is one of the primary traits that gives me my status as a wise old pug. I am now sharing it with you my friends, because I feel you have reached the point where you can truly understand it's value.
It is no secret that I can tend to be aloof at times, almost cat like in nature. If you have that independent, devil may care kind of attitude, like I do, this little tidbit of advice will be right up your alley. When you have the confidence to be able to do your own thing, the humans really appreciate when you do something totally out of character. And at the end of the day, that is what it is all about. Making sure our people know how much we love them. I know, sounds corny, but even though I am a diva, many of you know I have a tender side too.
Allow me to provide you with an example of what I mean by material. One day, in the not so distant past, Mom came home and I knew something wasn't right. I could tell she was sad, and not in a "stressed out" kind of way. This went deeper. Sometimes, you can present with some comic relief, to lighten the mood, but this wasn't one of those times. So, completely out of character, this is more of a Sluggo/Brigitte move, I jumped up on the couch and nuzzled up next to her. I turned, looked at her, and gave her my best "I love you Mom, and everything will be OK" look. then a little while later, I threw in a few fish breath kisses, just for extra impact.
I know we pugs, and other furry types, provide lots of comfort and happiness to our people on a daily basis, but it really feels good when we can throw in a little something extra when they really need us to.
In closing, I would like to share a little wisdom from my Grammy. She included it in a comment to last weeks wisdom post and I liked it so much, I wanted to be sure everyone got a chance to see it. It goes like this...
