Today, we're in wonderful Windsor to meet Marta and her pet dog.

0:01:060:01:10

I love dogs, so I can't wait to meet them.

0:01:100:01:12

Let's go and say hello.

0:01:120:01:14

Hello, Rory!

0:01:230:01:24

-Hiya. You must be Marta?

-Yeah.

0:01:240:01:26

-And you must be Mum?

-Hello!

0:01:260:01:27

Would you like to come and meet my pet?

0:01:270:01:30

Absolutely, let's go!

0:01:300:01:32

Marta, who is this little bundle of fun?

0:01:370:01:40

Ginger.

0:01:400:01:41

Wow, I love Ginger!

0:01:410:01:43

What sort of dog is Ginger?

0:01:430:01:45

-A pug.

-Of course she is!

0:01:450:01:47

You can tell with this lovely squishy face... Hi!

0:01:470:01:50

..this curly tail, and all this energy. How old is she?

0:01:500:01:54

-Nearly two.

-Oh, wow. Still quite young, then?

-Yeah.

0:01:540:01:58

So, Marta, I've heard that your dog

0:01:580:02:01

understands another language.

0:02:010:02:03

-Is that true?

-Mm-hm.

-What is it?

0:02:030:02:06

Italian.

0:02:060:02:07

I've never met a dog that knows two languages. This is amazing!

0:02:070:02:11

-So can you show us some commands in Italian?

-Yeah.

0:02:110:02:14

What have you got there?

0:02:150:02:17

-Dog treats.

-Oh, perfect.

0:02:170:02:20

Right, let's pop Ginger down.

0:02:200:02:22

Getting very excited already.

0:02:220:02:24

Seduta.

0:02:240:02:26

That means, "Sit down."

0:02:280:02:30

OK. Seduta.

0:02:300:02:31

What a clever dog.

0:02:310:02:33

-Will you give her a treat?

-Mm-hm.

0:02:330:02:35

What do you say when she's done well?

0:02:350:02:38

-Brava.

-Brava.

0:02:380:02:39

OK, now what should I do? Um...

0:02:390:02:41

Ginger, resta.

0:02:430:02:44

Resta. Resta.

0:02:450:02:47

That means, "Stay."

0:02:490:02:50

She doing it, look!

0:02:500:02:52

Vieni.

0:02:520:02:54

Vieni means, "Come."

0:02:550:02:57

Oh, wow. Do you think I could try and get Ginger to come over to me?

0:02:570:03:01

-Yeah.

-Great, thank you.

0:03:010:03:02

Right, Ginger. resta.

0:03:020:03:04

Resta. Vieni.

0:03:040:03:06

Ha-ha, it worked!

0:03:080:03:09

Right, Ginger, you've done so well, I think you deserve some cuddles.

0:03:090:03:14

-Shall we give her some cuddles?

-Yeah.

-Well done. Brava.

0:03:140:03:17

Aww, such a good dog!

0:03:170:03:20

Marta, what do you love most about Ginger?

0:03:200:03:23

Well, I love that she's a very good dog,

0:03:230:03:27

and she's like a sister for me,

0:03:270:03:29

and she gives me loads of cuddles.

0:03:290:03:31

Aw, that's lovely!

0:03:310:03:33

And actually, pugs were originally bred as companion dogs,

0:03:330:03:36

which means they love spending time with people.

0:03:360:03:39

Pugs can be very friendly, and clever as well.

0:03:390:03:42

Fern, can you give us some facts about pugs

0:03:420:03:45

-just like our little friend Ginger, here?

-Of course, Rory.

0:03:450:03:49

A group of pugs is called a grumble.

0:03:500:03:52

They can be black or fawn in colour,

0:03:560:03:59

and even apricot or silver,

0:03:590:04:01

and their nose and mouth are always black.

0:04:010:04:04

Some pugs have really curly tails,

0:04:080:04:10

but other pugs have no curl at all.

0:04:100:04:13

Pugs can make great pets because they're so full of personality,

0:04:210:04:25

but with all that energy,

0:04:250:04:27

they need lots of space so they can run around.

0:04:270:04:29

Marta, how do you look after Ginger?

0:04:290:04:32

Well, we give her food and water.

0:04:320:04:34

Both of those are very important.

0:04:340:04:37

-So shall we do that now?

-Yeah.

0:04:370:04:38

Ginger.

0:04:450:04:47

-What's next?

-Food.

0:04:510:04:53

So how often do you feed Ginger?

0:04:530:04:55

Two times a day.

0:04:550:04:56

Usually, I give her one...

0:04:590:05:01

-..and another half.

-OK.

0:05:030:05:05

Ginger!

0:05:070:05:08

So, what else do you do to look after Ginger?

0:05:120:05:15

We give her exercise.

0:05:150:05:17

That's right, that's very important.

0:05:170:05:19

Playing with your dog is good because it gives them exercise,

0:05:190:05:23

and also because it helps build a great friendship with them.

0:05:230:05:27

What do you like to play with Ginger?

0:05:270:05:29

Run around with her chewy toy.

0:05:290:05:31

-Oh, is that her favourite toy?

-Mm-hm.

0:05:310:05:34

-Shall we go and find it?

-Yeah.

-Let's go, I'm excited!

0:05:340:05:37

Now that Ginger's had a rest after eating, let's play!

0:05:430:05:47

SHE HUMS

0:05:480:05:50

HE LAUGHS

0:05:510:05:53

-Oh!

-She got it, she got it!

0:05:530:05:55

Get it! Get it!

0:05:550:05:57

-Get it!

-Oh, no! Oh, no!

0:06:000:06:03

Oh, no!

0:06:030:06:05

Oh, she's got it!

0:06:050:06:07

She's SO strong!

0:06:090:06:11

She is. She's small, but she's strong.

0:06:110:06:13

And now, Marta's going to show me how else she cares for Ginger.

0:06:170:06:21

-Hello!

-Hello.

-Today, we're going to groom Ginger.

-Oh, excellent.

0:06:250:06:29

-Marta's done it before, haven't you?

-Yes.

-Have you?

0:06:290:06:32

I'll be watching you, then! What are we doing?

0:06:320:06:35

Giving her a nice bath and a good dry.

0:06:350:06:38

And if you need my help, just give me a shout.

0:06:380:06:40

Great, will do. Thank you. Let's get started.

0:06:400:06:43

Come on.

0:06:430:06:44

Right.

0:06:460:06:47

OK.

0:06:490:06:50

First, we wash Ginger.

0:06:500:06:51

Ready?

0:06:520:06:54

I'll hold her for you, OK?

0:06:560:06:58

It's very important not to get any soapy water

0:06:580:07:01

in your dog's ears or eyes.

0:07:010:07:02

Right, it's time for the shampoo.

0:07:040:07:06

OK.

0:07:070:07:08

You need this, don't you?

0:07:080:07:10

It's like a brush, but...

0:07:120:07:14

THEY LAUGH

0:07:140:07:16

This is fun!

0:07:160:07:18

This side as well. Get the side.

0:07:180:07:21

I love washing Ginger.

0:07:220:07:25

-Do you like washing Ginger?

-Yeah, it's nice, isn't it?

0:07:250:07:28

-Got to get in all these folds, don't you?

-Yeah.

0:07:280:07:31

This is great fun.

0:07:310:07:33

-Right, shall we give her a rinse, now?

-Yeah.

0:07:330:07:36

-Woohoo!

-This is so fun!

0:07:360:07:39

HE LAUGHS

0:07:390:07:41

Have you got to do the underneath?

0:07:410:07:43

That's good.

0:07:430:07:45

Let's get her nice and dry.

0:07:450:07:46

Right. I think it's time for a towel dry.

0:07:530:07:56

Yeah.

0:07:560:07:58

Spread it all out.

0:07:580:08:00

Oh, you cute!

0:08:010:08:03

And how does she smell?

0:08:040:08:05

Oh, she smells fabulous.

0:08:060:08:09

There we go. I think we're done.

0:08:090:08:11

How do you think she looks?

0:08:110:08:13

-Beautiful!

-Certainly does.

0:08:130:08:15

What is Ginger's favourite thing to do after she's had a nice bath?

0:08:240:08:29

-Lie on her pink cushion.

-Oh, that sounds lovely, doesn't it?

0:08:290:08:32

And she's definitely due a rest.

0:08:320:08:34

If Ginger was to fall asleep on her favourite pink cushion

0:08:340:08:38

and dream of doing anything, what do you think she'd do?

0:08:380:08:41

If my pet could do anything,

0:08:440:08:46

she would be a magical flying pug...

0:08:460:08:49

..wearing multicoloured wings.

0:08:510:08:53

Her job would be to collect rainbows,

0:08:540:08:58

and put them into her sparkly pink bag.

0:08:580:09:02

She'd be a very happy pug.

0:09:040:09:06

So Ginger's been fed, we've given her some water,

0:09:130:09:17

she's had a nice play, and she's had a wash as well.

0:09:170:09:20

Must be time for me to go. I'll see you later.

0:09:200:09:23

-No!

-What?

0:09:230:09:25

You forgot the pug party!

0:09:250:09:27

A pug party?

0:09:270:09:29

It's just as well I brought my party clothes.

0:09:290:09:32

Let's go and get ready.

0:09:320:09:34

Vieni, Ginger!

0:09:340:09:36

We are looking cool in all our party gear, and look at this little one.

0:09:500:09:54

She's looking very cute.

0:09:540:09:56

Now we just have to find the pug party.

0:09:560:09:58

-What's that?

-Oh, pug party!

0:09:580:10:01

Here it is.

0:10:010:10:02

-And look, there's Liz the dog trainer and your mum. Hi!

-Hi!

0:10:020:10:06

Oh, I can't believe how many pugs are in here! Let's count them.

0:10:060:10:10

One, two, three,

0:10:100:10:11

four, five, six,

0:10:110:10:13

seven, eight, nine, ten,

0:10:130:10:15

11, 12, 13,

0:10:150:10:17

14, 15, 16.

0:10:170:10:19

-Look at the little puppies, wow!

-Wow!

0:10:190:10:21

Oh, look! Aren't they adorable?

0:10:210:10:24

Yeah.

0:10:240:10:26

-Come on, let's go and look.

-Yeah.

0:10:260:10:28

A pug party is a great way for lots of pugs

0:10:290:10:32

to meet one another and play.

0:10:320:10:34

Oh, hiya!

0:10:350:10:37

Are we going to go straight over to the puppies? Look!

0:10:370:10:40

Can I hold one of them?

0:10:400:10:42

Yes.

0:10:420:10:43

Oh, you're so cute!

0:10:450:10:47

Awww!

0:10:470:10:49

Aww, these puppies are SO cute.

0:10:490:10:52

-This is lovely, isn't it? Who've you got there?

-Ruby.

0:10:580:11:02

Oh, so this is Ruby here? Look at these guys saying hello!

0:11:020:11:05

-Hiya!

-Hello, hello!

0:11:050:11:07

Hello! Hello!

0:11:070:11:10

It's really important for your dog to meet other dogs,

0:11:100:11:13

and not just pugs. It's a bit like making friends,

0:11:130:11:16

so when they're out for a walk, they're relaxed and happy.

0:11:160:11:20

Aww!

0:11:200:11:21

-Come on, guys. Shall we run around?

-Yeah.

-Let's run.

0:11:210:11:24

Let's see if we get chased. Woohoo! Let's go!

0:11:240:11:27

THEY LAUGH

0:11:290:11:31

-This is a serious pug party, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:11:460:11:48

I think it's time to give all these guys some treats, Marta, don't you?

0:11:480:11:53

One at a time. One for you.

0:11:530:11:55

One for you.

0:11:570:11:58

One for you.

0:12:000:12:01

One for you.

0:12:010:12:02

Ginger, Ginger!

0:12:030:12:05

Ginger!

0:12:050:12:07

Aw, a treat for Ginger!

0:12:070:12:08

-Oh, that was loads of fun, that party, wasn't it?

-Yeah.

0:12:140:12:17

-What's been your favourite thing today?

-Pug party!

0:12:170:12:21

Definitely. That was so fun, running around! Aww.

0:12:210:12:24

Marta, I've had an awesome time meeting you and Ginger.

0:12:240:12:27

What a little cutie!

0:12:270:12:29

You guys are a brilliant team. Grazie tanto!

0:12:290:12:32

Grazie.

0:12:320:12:33

My pet and me!

0:12:390:12:41

-Hi, Fern. Hi, Bagel!

-Hi.

0:12:440:12:45

You look like you've had a great day. What have you been up to?

0:12:450:12:49

It was awesome! I had so much fun with my new friends.

0:12:490:12:52

Fantastic. I've just been giving Bagel a little brush, here.

0:12:520:12:56

-She's looking great!

-Thank you.

0:12:560:12:58

Pets are brilliant, but remember, don't touch an animal

0:12:580:13:01

unless the owner says it's OK.

0:13:010:13:03

But two pets you CAN play with are ours.

0:13:030:13:06

Go on the website and play the My Pet And Me game.

0:13:060:13:08

Thanks for joining us. We hope you had fun, too.
