Punky | Social Pug Profile

It is time for another Social Pug Profile and this time round, we have the adorable little black pug from Canberra sitting down for an interview. Or maybe she is running around crazily whilst she answers the questions cause she is just a little pup. So let me introduce to you Punky. You will adore her as much as I do.

Name: Punky Tiffen. I also answer to: Punk, Punty, & Puggy Puggy Puggy

Age: 6 months 

Birth date or Gotcha Date: My Pug-Mum {Gypsy} gave me life on 4Th December 2014.

Where do you live? In sunny Canberra, Australia.

You have such a cool name. How did your parents come to give you that name? Well, my humans insisted on a name starting with “P”. I was nearly ‘Pixie’ or ‘Pockets’ but my Mama was a kid of the 80s and loved Punky Brewster. The rest is history. I suit my name don’t you think?

What is your favourite time of the day? Dinner time! I do love seeing all my humans first thing in the morning too. I am pretty nuts when I say good morning to everyone.

What is your favourite food? Bacon, Bacon, I smell Bacon, Only one thing smells like bacon and it’s BACON however… I am on this strict routine of ‘Science Diet Puppy’ because my humans have heard how fat we puggys get. I do get loads of treats from the four human kids and I EAT ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. If it’s edible, its down the hatch.

Do you have a toy that you can’t live without? This is embarrassing but I luff-luff-love my little sister’s Tommee Tippee dummy. It’s pawesome! It tastes a bit like her but better because I can chew chew chew it. It feels great on my teef and if my humans have any puppy advice to give, they would tell you to buy a nice big {12+ month} pacifier for your puppy fur-baby.

What do you hate the most? Pee’ing in the rain. It sucks. I usually just wait until I am back inside and go there.

What do you love the most? Gotta catch the tail… Gotta catch the tail… Gotta… J Playing with the human kids. The boy one and I run around the house so fast and everyone laughs because I run so super-fast that I make a squeaky little bark. I sound just like a toy. I can’t help it. It just comes out like a hiccup.

Do you have any bad habits? I’ll poop anywhere. I think this means I am very laid back and easy going but apparently this is a bad habit. It sends my humans ape sh*t. I have also helped myself to the nappy bin before looking for the good stuff. I got in trouble. I would like to say that I won’t be doing that again anytime soon… but knowing me, I totally will. Ooh. I don’t feel well. Blarrr… Hey look, more food!

What do you think is your best quality? They call me Spunky Punky for a reason. I am a total show stopper on walks. We live in a pretty trendy area and whenever I take my humans out, I am the one that attracts all the comments and pats. I am great with kids and I never make a peep at night and I think these things alone make me the best family member to-date.

What does a typical day look like for you? uhh I like, woof and stuff. I sleep in, then have brekkie and PLAY TIME. Followed by nap time and then I get to sit with my Mama while she blogs or plays with my littlest sisters. Then at 3pm we go pick up the big kids from school. This is like going to Disney every day. I hang about in the afternoons sharing myself between all the humans. I chat to my feathery brother ‘Twitter’ the cockatiel and play with the pug in the mirror when I am bored. After dinner we have quiet time but sometimes that’s my GO-NUTS time. Sometimes Mama uses this time to give me piles of treats. She calls it “do photos”. Whatever that means. I just like the dessert. 

We’ve been following you on Instagram since the day you found your forever home. What has been the best thing you have done so far in your puppy years? I shot a film clip last week. Yep I am turning into a pretty famous pug. It is still under wraps as the band is currently editing the production but stay tuned boys!

And what are you looking forward to most about being a grown up pug? I want to be a mummy one day. I am not sure if that will happen but I’d like to find that special pug in my life. Get married.

Where can we follow your daily adventures? I am a pug of Instagram and you can find me @punkythepug and I also chat with local pugs on the Pug Picnic Canberra facebook page.
