Mochi | 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 muse of 157ofgemma’s drawings, Mochi. He is such a character that shines through in all of his mami’s drawings. You’ll love him.


3 years

Birth date or Gotcha Date:

What is your favourite time of the day?
When my humans wake me up and we make a sandwich of love, which, as any doggy knows, is when you are in the middle having both of your humans kissing you.

What is your favourite food?
Well…I am very picky. I like meat, pasta, cheese, yogurt, ice cream…ah! And I just found out I loooove the inner part of croissants, though I hate the outside…
Also, if any of my humans are eating, I must know what is it just in case I am missing something delicious. I get very disappointed every time I see they are not eating any of the things I like. Who does need to eat salad?

Do you have a toy that you can’t live without?
I love a stuffed lobster my grandmami got me for my last birthday! I always love stuffed animals specially if they make noises and come from the sea like sea turtles, dolphins or octopuses.

What do you hate the most?
I hate the most when my mami goes to work and I am stuck with my papi. Then is when I have to show them my disappointment by looking extremely sad, unrolling my tail and lowering my ears as low as I can.

What do you love the most?
I love the most when I spend all day with my humans either cuddling in the sofa or going to the dog run where I am the boss.

Do you have any bad habits?
I don’t have any bad habits!! I am just awesome! But my parents always complain when I bark every time someone buzzes or knocks on our door – or on our neighbour’s! Sorry for being helpful!!

What do you think is your best quality?
Not too many people know this but I am actually so trained that I can walk off leash. I also stop and run on demand and never fight with other dogs. Also, if someone ever asks “where is mami?” I can find her A-NY-WHERE! Maybe, I will be a police dog when I grow up…or a model, who knows! I am very brave, but I also have the looks so it is a difficult choice.

What does a typical day look like for you?
I wake up on top of mami’s head –literally- and when she wakes up, she needs to pet me for a while in order for me to get out of bed. Then, the two of us leave the house racing in the hallway (I always win, even when my mami cheats) and we go for a walk. After the walk my busy day starts when I have to inspire my mami for her drawings. Because being a muse is so exhaustive, sometimes I have to take a nap on my mami’s delicate cloths.

In the evening the three of us have a long walk. Sometimes, we go to the park where I am forced to play with other dogs while I just want to hang out with other dog’s humans…
At night, we sit in the sofa and eat ice cream or yogurt and when I fall sleep my mami carries me to bed. Often, she gets very mad with my papi if he wants to carry me -me too- because it’s my mami’s job to do that. I can’t sleep otherwise! My papi stinks.
During the night, I always protect them from all possible hazards. It is very stressful so I usually fall sleep from working so hard.

What is it like to have your life captured in drawings?
It is fun because I am sort of famous, yet sometimes my mami draws private things that are very embarrassing and then I hate it!!

Does your mum have more drawings of you then she does photos?
I would say it is 50-50. She has a private Instagram for close friends and family to share her life with her loved ones, but it is mostly just photos of me. Honestly, it does make sense because I am the most important thing in her life!

Do you prefer to be captured in drawings or photos?
I think drawings, because photos just capture my handsomeness, while drawings capture also my awesome personality and this way people can get to know me better!
