Trained pugs on command

A group of pugs is called a grumble: We love when groups of certain animals are known by unique and unusual collective names. Sometimes, even a certain breed gets its own name when in a group. A group of Pugs is called a grumble. Seems like kind of a bad-tempered nickname for such a good-natured breed. Source: Momme

Puppies playing with mother

A bond from birth: As each little puppy makes its entrance, its mother carefully tends to its first needs — licking and cleaning her newborn to stimulate breathing and to encourage nursing. As her newborn puppies knead and suckle, she curls her body around them for protection and warmth – hearts beating in unison. Every lick, which is a doggie kiss, reinforces the mother-puppy bond.

Care and protect: A mother dog whines to alert her humans if she’s separated from her puppies. She paces nervously back and forth between a tiny still-unseeing puppy that scoots to the other side of the room and the rest of her litter. When necessary, a mother dog will put herself between her puppies and danger. She won’t let strange dogs approach, and if she senses that a human might harm her little ones, she issues a warning growl. Source: The Nest

Puppy love

Children who grow up with dogs are not only healthier but they are also more well-adjusted human beings. Studies have shown that kids who live with dogs have stronger immune systems, fewer allergies and possibly even healthier microbiomes. Other research has revealed that kids raised with dogs feel more caring, happy, responsible and intelligent. And dogs love their little humans just as much as they love their big humans.
