Berlin Pug Run – level 2

23-08-2018 07:00

In Berlin, Sixty pugs took part in a 50-metre race, and the pug who won the last time won again. Emma, the champion, ran the track in under 6 seconds.

Some dogs were a bit slower, and some needed a little help from their owners. Some people ran with their dogs to show them what to do or to motivate them.

Difficult words: pug (a type of a small dog), owner (a person who owns – has the dog and takes care of it), motivate (make someone want to do something).

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