Berlin Pug Run – level 3

23-08-2018 07:00

Sixty pugs in Berlin took part in a 50-metre race, and the defending champion named Emma retained her title, sprinting down the track in under 6 seconds.

Some dogs at the jolly sports event were a bit slower, and some required a bit of encouragement from their owners. Some owners ran the track with their dogs to show them what to do.

Difficult words: pug (a type of a small dog), defending champion (the dog who won the last time and tries to defend their position of the best this time again), jolly (happy and cheerful), encouragement (motivation).
