As the long shadow of the first day of the work week descends upon those of us toiling the world over for a paycheck; as the crushing weight of unanswered emails multiply in inboxes, and meetings that could have been emails pile endlessly on; as the oppression of the impossible demands of our day jobs stretch into infinity…
Who, who, WHO among us hasn’t been this terrified Pug, pleading with the void, wriggling to escape, wide-eyed for freedom and yet caught in the steely grip of the need for a decent health plan and the occasional catered office lunch?
Ask not for who the Pug cries. The Pug cries for thee!
Putting aside our best overly-dramatic Pug impressions, this hilarious yet clearly distressed little dog—also named Pug—is expressing a lot of anxiety about having her nails trimmed, which is is a common fear in a lot of pets.
Pug’s mom is doing a commendable job with her wiggly pet, providing gentle reassurance and doing her best to maintain the steady hand needed for safe dog nail trimming (notice she stops to let herself laugh once she loses her focus).
