There are some dogs, as precious and wonderful as they are, who can be demanding. Sometimes, not for their own good, they want to race right out and be with friends that are older and probably a bit more ready than they are to face the world around them.
Atty the pug is such a dog. He wants to be with friends, go for rides and is very vocal about what he wants. If only Mom would get the point!
