Shelby comes to work

Part of the clumsiness of bringing Shelby to work is that she cries if I leave her with someone, yet there are few places I can bring her for lunch. I get nervous when she's out of my sight, tied up somewhere, while I wait for a sandwich. This nearby deli thankfully allows me to keep an eye on her while I buy something.

This of course, doesn't stop Shelby from looking very sad and lonely, despite the fact that I'm 10 feet from her.

Waiting for me to get a sandwich

Please let me in

I hate seeing dogs tied up outside in New York City. They always look so sad. Plus, it's so dangerous!

She's upset because she can't read the menu.I think she wants to order a sandwich.

Poor pitful girl. It's hard to be 10 feet from mama.

yeah, i don't know how people leave their dogs tied out like that. i'd be a nervous wreck. one time, i was on my way to my parents house and realized i had no cash to pay the toll, and had to stop at the atm. i had to leave moxie and p in the car [don't worry, it was on, and properly ventilated on neither a very hot nor cold day] while i literally RAN to the atm, with them in sight and went as fast as i could.

Yes, Shelby misses her human mommy even if she can smell and hear and see you! Is her crying
a sort of a soft whine? Do you have a suggestion to cure or stop the hiccups in small dogs?
It is so loving of you to take your poochie to work with you, and you're lucky you can do so because many work places forbid canines. Thank you for your videos, pictures and narratives!

Mommy? Are you giving me away to this deli shop owner? Mommy are you leaving me here?

She has that sad look that no other dog but a pug can get. It's the wrinkles.

aww, poor baby! i wouldn't be able to leave my dog alone for a couple of seconds if i had one! :( it's ok, shelby! mommy's right there!

Oh my goodness...
She is probably hinting to you, don't forget about me.

my pugs have always had hiccups, especially as babies, they usually grow out of it. my 5-year-old sam still gets them occasionally, but they are self-limiting. i wouldn't worry too much about them unless the dog i uncomfortable or vomiting with them. i aske my vet about it awhile ago and that was the advise he gave me. small dogs, especially pugs, tend to swallow alot of air, ergo, it comes out somewhere, either the upper or lower end, if you know what i mean. hope this helps.
