A man couldn't decide what to buy for his wife on her birthday. He was terrible at selecting thoughtful gifts and had often faced her displeasure on numerous occasions in the past. This time around, he wanted to do something very special for her.
However, the poor guy was all out of ideas. All he was able to recall were his wife's birthdays in the past, the majority of which he had absolutely forgotten. He could also vividly remember how awful she felt when she came home to no birthday surprise party or a gift.

"Who forgets his wife's birthday? I mean, dude, do you even want to live to grow old, or are you simply testing your wife's nerves for fun?" said his friend to him the last time he forgot to greet his wife on her birthday and even came home without a gift.
The same friend later suggested he add a reminder in his phone with a loud alarm sound that snoozed at least ten times every fifteen minutes, just so he wouldn't forget the birthday even if he had a horrible memory. Surprisingly, his friend's advice worked.
So this time around, the man was aware of his wife's special day in advance, and he wanted to even the playing field with the best birthday gift ever.
If only I knew how hard it would be to make her happy. I thought the only hard thing was remembering her birthday, but I was wrong, said the man to himself.
He picked up his phone and called his friend. "Hey, buddy. Can you help me select a gift for my wife? I'm all out of ideas, and there's very little time left," he said.

"How about you get her a new pet? I'm sure you know what animals she likes," suggested the friend.
"Brilliant idea!" exclaimed the man. "Thanks a lot, man."
A week passed and the man went over to his friend's place.
"Hey, buddy. I got my wife a dog for her birthday," said the man as soon as his friend let him inside the house.
"Okay, that's great. But why a dog?" asked the friend.

"It's a long story, mate. I thought about getting her a cat at first, but my wife is allergic to cats. Then I wanted to buy a parrot, but she hates loud noises, and you know how naughty they are. I couldn't even get her a mouse because she's scared of them."
He took a deep breath and continued, "I decided to get her a dog. I was thinking about a German shepherd, but they are too big. Then I thought about buying a chihuahua, but they're too loud."
"Interesting, so what breed did you buy?" asked the friend.
"It's a pug. And, despite the squashed nose, the bulging eyes and the rolls of fat, the dog really loves her," replied the man.
Anybody here loves pugs as we do?
