Today I get the pleasure of not only introducing an awesome pug who is amazing in front of the camera, but who is also amazing in front of the video camera. This little dude is becoming an internet superstar even making TV screens via CNN. So let me welcome Atom to The Pug Diary community as he is the latest to be part of our Social Pug Profile series.
Age: 6 years young
Birth date or Gotcha Date: My parents say my birthday is May 18th 2009 but that’s not when they got me. My gotcha day was 3 years ago.
Where do you live? I live in Toronto Ontario Canada with my mum and dad.
What is your favourite time of the day? My favourite time of day is when Dad wakes up and grabs my Leash + The Camera. I just love our photo and video filming adventures.
What is your favourite food? My most favourite food is Carrots!!!!!
What do you hate the most? I really hate it when someone lights a Lighter and Fireworks
What do you love the most? When just me and dad go for an adventure. My face lights up and you can see just how much I love going on a Photo/Video Mission.
Do you have any bad habits? Only bad habit I would say I have is that I looove to Lick other dogs bums. Yeah I know, I’m disgusting but you can’t tell me I’m the only pug to ever do this?
What do you think is your best quality? I would say it is my good looks and charm in front of the camera but dad says that my heart is the size of Toronto!!! Oh and he does mention from time to time that I am the best doggie actor he has ever worked with. So I guess I am right.
What does a typical day look like for you? Wake up go for a nice walk with my brother Guinness the Bulldog and Stella The Mini Sharpei Pug. When we get home, I eat my breakfast and drink some water. Then if dad has time we go back out, just me and him, to shoot some new photos and video footage…. then I just nap, cuddle, nap, wait for mom and dad to get home from work. eat, nap, repeat! Oh and dad I try to sneak in some more photo and video time after he gets home from work.
You are a very talented pug in front of the camera. Do you prefer to be photographed or filmed on video? NO LIE I love it ALL!!!!! When I see the camera and gear come out I totally freak and I start rocking my Cinnabun back and forth… I totally know we what going to do next!!
What has been your favourite photo/video shoot so far? To date my favourite video shoot would have to be the one where I fully operate a tractor on a farm… The video even aired on CNN!!!! and right this minute, that is totally AWESOME!!
What tips do you have for other pugs who want to learn to be a video star like you?My best advice for becoming a video star is to have a human that is very patient with you and you just gotta love having a camera in your face. You also gotta like doing the same thing over and over again until your human is happy. So with this, just keep on smiling, those treats will flow afterwards.
Where can we follow your daily adventures? I have a Facebook Page, an Instagram account which you can follow by searching @atomthepug and you can watch my videos on YouTube. But first, check out my favourite video to date right here:
