Name: Nigella (Nicknames, Jelly, Gel, Jelly Baby, Jelly Bean)
Birth date or Gotcha Date: 21st October 2013
Where do you live? Northern Beaches in Sydney, Australia
What is your favourite time of the day? I’m a happy pug, I love every part of the day, breakfast, sleeping, playing, dinner, snuggles with mum – everything.
Do you have a toy that you can’t live without? My Flee, I love my flee….mum has a spare one in the cupboard just incase I ever loose it.
What do you hate the most? Being separated from my mum, there is only a handful of days we have ever spent apart.
What do you love the most? Playing with my pug brother and sister, catch ups with my pug cousins and my mum.
Do you have any bad habits? Ummm, well sometimes I might harass my pug sister Tinker 🙁
What do you think is your best quality? I’m a very loving little girl.
What does a typical day look like for you? Dad brings mum coffee in bed and we all sit and watch the morning news, then my breakfast and some time to run around outside, then its time to work, I help mum keeping her company while she types on that silver thing, in summer we head to the beach in the afternoon, I have a run and a swim and chat to my little friends, then its home for dinner. Mum cooks us fresh food, lots of veggies and my fav is roast chook. After dinner we play fetch and again have outside time in the fresh air. In the early evening we all head downstairs to relax and I have a little chew before falling asleep on the couch and later dad carries me to bed xx
What has inspired you to share your daily adventures on Facebook? In March last year (2014) we attended puppy prom for the Animal Welfare League, we met a new friend Elana and she told my mum that there is something special about me and she should share me with the world, so we did.
30k+ likes on Facebook is incredible. How have you managed to gain such a large following on Facebook? There isn’t really any formula, we are very surprised as well. I know i’m cute, and mum takes photos of me just being my cheeky self, because mum and I spend all our time together she is able to catch me doing the things I do…but for every photo she gets, she says there are 100 that she misses.
Do you have any tips for other pugs who want to become Facebook Famous? Be authentic, every pug has a unique personality, and lots of it – let it shine.
