It is that time again where you get to know a pug from the social media scene in our popular Social Pug Profile series. This week it is the adorable Douglas Von Puglas. Get to know Douglas in his interview.
Name: Douglas Von Puglas
Age: 18 months
Birth date or Gotcha Date:
I was born on 30/01/2015 but my gotcha day is 29/03/215.
Where do you live?
Gold Coast Queensland. So I enjoy the beach and sunshine and consider myself a merpug.
What is your favourite time of the day?
Just before bedtime. I find that is the best time of day to run laps around the kitchen bench (zoomies) or just go crazy attacking my toys.
What is your favourite food?
Do you have a toy that you can’t live without?
The kong cozie toys. I regularly attack mine with all my might but they are still going strong. Thanks to my friends Wynston and Doug for getting my hooked on them.
What do you hate the most?
The idea of bath time. I confess, once I get in the bath I remember that I actually really enjoy it. Also it means I get a lot of cuddles and a brush after. But as soon as the parents say bath time I lose my mind.
What do you love the most?
Belly rubs or dinnertime. I would like to one day combine the two.
Do you have any bad habits?
A few, the worst is sometimes I forget the fingers are not for nibbling on.
What do you think is your best quality?
My goofball friendly personality. It is my mission to become friends with everyone I meet. I generally win people and pups over with my smile or shaking my bottom with excitement at meeting them. Sometimes I come on a little too strong and I never want to leave a new friend. But I am always on the lookout for a new pal.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Most mornings start with a bloody alarm which scares my tail straight. Some mornings I go for a walk around the block then back home for a delicious breakfast. My dad works from home so I get to help him out during the day. I am a firm believer in 10-12 naps per day as a tired pug is a grumpy pug. When I’m not snoring my head off next to dad I am out patrolling the garden looking for a new leaf or peg to hide in my bed. I am always at the front door to greet mum when she gets home. I then supervise all kitchen activities. I always offer to taste test and I am first on the scene if there is any food spillage. After dinner I like to just chill and hang out with the humans. Its around bed time that I realise I have a lot of energy which I need to burn and its then that I love doing laps around the kitchen bench and living room or playing fetch with one of my toys. I then get a good 8-9 hours beauty sleep ready for the next day.
On weekends I catch up with family and friends or hang out at the local dog park or beach.
Where is your most favourite place to visit?
I am a social pug. I love running about the dog park or the beach. I also love going to visit family especially my cousins (both human and furry) as I love being smothered in attention.
