What are their names? Kingston & Olive. Kingston is 8 years old and Olive is 3.

Is your current pug/s your first?
Yes, we got Kingston when he was 12 weeks old and then 5 years later we decided to get him a baby sister which is Olive!

Do you think your pugs personality matches yours?
Kingston’s Yes! He is chill, laid back with the right amount of energy when needed! He likes to sleep in! And he loves to explore and adventure! Olive on the other hand… ummm no not so much! She’s just CRAZY! But we love her!

What did you expect a pug to be like before you got one?
I honestly thought pugs would be more lazy and low maintenance.

What was different to your expectation once you got a pug?
Pugs are full of energy! At least my two are. And we love it! I also didn’t think I would be so involved in the Pug Community! I run a Pug Meet Up Group! We have met and made so many friends through pugs! Pugs have taken over my heart!!!

What would be your number 1 tip for new pug parents?
Pugs are high maintenance! Needy! They want to be around you at all times! If you don’t have time to give your pug/s your all… then don’t get one.

What do you hate the most about having a pug?
The Shedding! I find pug hair in the craziest places!

What do you love the most about having a pug?
The love and laughter they bring each and everyday! They keep me smiling and happy. Pugs are true anti depressants.

What has been your biggest fear about owning a pug?
I would say health problems you hear and read about other pugs having.

Have you experienced any of the typical pug health problems? If so how have you overcome them? If not, what precautions have you taken to prevent health problems?
Luckily we have not had any serious health problems with either one of our pugs. It’s important to regularly take them to the vet for checkups, feed them well (don’t overfeed) walk them and pay attention to any changes in your pug.

Why did you choose to start a social media account for your pug/s?
I decided to start social media accounts for my two pugs because they are just too cute not to! I wanted to share and spread the Pug Love all over the world!

Where can we follow your pugs adventures?
