Pug pushes puppies in pram.


Another great story from the Telegraph.co.uk:

Pug uses pushchair to walk puppies

Jenny the pug has taken puppy love to a whole new level, after taking to pushing toy dogs around in a pushchair.

 

JENNY THE PUG: Pug uses pushchair to walk puppies

Jenny needed no encouragement and quickly got the hang of it.

Jenny’s owner, Ellen Zessin, a children’s book artist from Portland, Oregon, US, explains: "Jenny loved the little stuffed pugs we got for her right from the beginning and was forever picking them up in her mouth and mothering them.

"We thought pugs were meant to be docile, yet Jenny was so full of love and energy."

Determined their dog should make the most of her boundless energy Ellen and husband Mark took Jenny to dog agility classes where she quickly excelled.

With the classes over, Jenny was determined to show her precious pugs they hadn’t been forgotten and kept putting her babies into an old pink toy pushchair.

"She looked so sweet an idea hit me," Ellen remembers.

"Jenny had been so good at dog agility maybe I could get her to push the stroller around."

Jenny needed no encouragement and quickly got the hang of it.

She showed such a knack for it that Ellen asked their vet if it was okay for Jenny to walk on her hind legs for a few seconds.

When he gave the thumbs up Ellen and Mark decided to let Jenny have some pushchair fun.

Early one morning they took Jenny down to walk the streets of Portland and filmed the experience for their son Steve who is away at university in Florida.

Ellen says: "We always send Steve a video letter every month of what me, Mark and Jenny have been up to, and we knew he’d love to see Jenny’s latest skills."

The family video ended up on the video-sharing website and overnight became an Internet sensation.

"We had so many lovely messages from people around the world – it was incredible," says Ellen.

Now the pug’s a star in her own right since she appeared on local TV news and accompanying poster billboards.

"Jenny’s a real celebrity," Ellen says. "But it’s her babies that come first."

Now Jenny’s next trick is learning to surf and unsurprisingly she’s mastered it with only one request – that her babies ride along next to her!
