Buddy | Social Pug Profile
It is that fun time again where you get to learn all about a pug from the social media scene in the latest Social Pug Profile. This time round you get to learn all about the gorgeous pup, Buddy. He is amazing in front of the camera and is such a character. You’ll love him.
Age: 8 Months young
Birth date: 6th March 2015
Where do you live?
We live near the city in Melbourne Australia. We are always roaming the city fringes.
What is your favourite time of the day?
I love the afternoons because I get a lot of play time such as outdoor ball chasing and show and tell time (showcasing a bunch of my favourite tricks) with Mommy. And on every Sunday, Mommy and Daddy brings me to the pug meetup at 10am without fail 🙂
What is your favourite food?
I love blueberries!
Do you have a toy that you can’t live without?
My ball! Even saying the word now is making my heart rate go up! I love playing fetch and will do it for hours. No, I’m not joking.
What do you hate the most?
Hmmm, I have to think hard about this. Hate is a strong word! I don’t particularly hate anything that most doggies do. I love attacking the vacuum, I don’t mind baths, I don’t mind having my wrinkles cleaned and I don’t mind having my nails clipped. Oh! I guess I really dislike it when my humans tease me with the ball. Sometimes I will bring the ball back and they will take forever to throw it or even do a ‘fake-throw’, I start crying and whinging at that point ? . Oh, and spiders.
What do you love the most?
I love being out! I love meeting humans and dogs, and play especially well with poodles and pugs! I love a good game of ‘catch me if you can’ and a good wrestle. Most would say I am the fastest pug in the group! Other than that, I also love going out on mini adventures with Mommy and sometimes her friend. I love modelling and Mommy love snapping pictures so we are the pawfect duo! ❤
Do you have any bad habits?
Hmmm I suppose I love dropping my ball in my human’s food during dinner time. My pawrents are couch potatoes and love watching the TV while eating dinner. I would slyly drop the ball into their food if they are not careful – because why should they be eating when they are supposed to be tossing the ball across the room? *evil laughter*
I am also a little bit of a Don Juan which has gotten me in trouble with the lady pugs of Instagram. I can’t help it when I think they are all cuties!
What do you think is your best quality?
This is also a hard one, because I have too many to choose from! *cheeky grin* I think my best quality is probably my communication skills between me and my humans! Pawrents have established this well when I first came into their lives. I think that is definitely key to a happy living situation at home. I understand what my pawrents expect of me and vice versa. I respond well to my name and pick up new tricks really quickly! That means lots of snacks which makes me a very happy puggie (despite my resting grumps face, I can’t help it!).
What does a typical day look like for you?
My body clock wakes me up at 6:30 AM every morning (my poor pawrents hehe). I will walk on their faces and bite on Mommy’s hair to get some breakfast. Then I will bring my ball to the bed and drop it on Daddy’s head. This is a true depiction of how every morning look like! I will take a nap until the afternoon and Mommy will take me out for walkies and ball throwing if her schedule and weather permits. I also get lots of snacks while I am out. Occasionally, we embark on a photography binge, but that depends on how Mommy feels. Then we come home, I will nap and play more ball fetching and have more snacks and wait for dinner time at 6:30 PM. I start switching off at around 8 PM onwards ?
You seem to go on a lot of adventures. Where has been your favourite place to go so far and why?
I haven’t really explored that much yet but I definitely loved going to the Brighton Beach! I love having sand in my mouth and the colourful bathing boxes! I am really looking forward to my first road trip! Maybe one day I can meet Wynstan and Doug!
I love your range of outfits especially your Spider-pug harness. Do you have favourite outfit and outfit supplier?
My SpiderPug harness is from @Poochusir, my favourite little Etsy store for harnesses! My favourite harness is the Sir Bertie harness, also from @Poochusir. It is a blue harness with little yachts printed on it. I live near the docks and I love anything that has a nautical feel. I don’t really have a favourite store as I usually buy random little pieces from different shops but I highly recommend @Poochusir if anyone is looking for a custom made harness. Their customer service is tip top! Once I bit the bone decorative piece off the harness and Mommy was so upset because that’s one feature of the harness she loved so much. I felt bad so I emailed Miss Jackson (the lady who makes them) if I could get a replacement bone and she sent me 4 instead, all free of charge! I can’t thank her enough! (BTW I am not paid or sponsored by them in any way!)
I hope you have enjoyed getting to know Buddy and be sure to leave a pug love note for him in the comments below.
