Berlin Pug Run – level 1

23-08-2018 07:00

People organise a fun event in Berlin. It is a race for pugs. A pug is a type of a small dog. The pugs run 50 metres. The winner runs it in under 6 seconds. Other dogs are slower. Some dogs need help. Their owners run with them.

Difficult words: race (a sports event when people or animals run), need (if you need something, it is very good to have it if you want to do something), owner (a person who owns something such as a dog or a thing.

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
