We are kicking off 2017 with the return of our most popular series, the Social Pug Profile. First up we have the ever so popular and full of life Fien + Rosie, The Dutch Pug Sisters. Get to know this dynamic duo in their Social Pug Profile interview.
Fien: Josephine, but everyone calls me Fien. You all know the story about Josephine Bonaparte? She had pugs and at her wedding night she preferred her pugs in bed (instead of Napoleon). Mom finds that’s a very funny story! That’s why she called me Josephine/ Fien.
Rosie: My name is Rosie! Just Rosie. Mom says Rosie means something like Rose, you know, the flower? So I guess it’s because I look like a flower.
Fien: I’m 9,5 years old
Rosie: I’m 1,5 year old, so technically I might be still a puppy but I think I’m pretty precocious, so I’m nearly a grown up!
Fien: July 10th 2007
Rosie: I’m not sure, I’ll have to ask mom..:
Mom says: July 20th 2015
Where do you live?
Fien: We live in a small town that’s called Vught..
Rosie: That’s in The Netherlands
Fien: …and The Netherlands is a small country in Europe, close to Germany and Belgium.
What’s your favourite time of the day?
Fien: In the evening when dad says: “Girls, it’s bedtime”
Rosie: …But that’s only because he gives us a snack when he says goodnight.
Fien: And twice a day when we hear the words:
Rosie: “Enjoy your meal!” because that means breakfast- and dinner-time!
What’s your favourite food?
Fien: Apple and cucumber!
Rosie: Apple, cucumber, bananas, egg, and all different kind of snackies!
Do you have a toy that you can’t live without?
Fien: No not really, I like all kind of toys, especially when they’re fluffy!
Rosie: This is a difficult question for me, because I have soooo many toys. Every month I have a different favourite toy!
What do you hate the most?
Fien: When dad or mom wants us to have a walkie IN THE RAIN!! I really hate puddles and wet feet…
Rosie: When my dinner disappears really quickly in my tummy. So that’s basically every night. And the same happens with breakfast…
What do you love the most?
Fien: When mom finally sits down on the sofa, and I cuddle up with her and Rosie..
Rosie: I love it when the doorbell rings! Then I can jump to greet the guests.
Fien: You’re not allowed to jump Rosie!
Rosie: That is my way to say Hello!
Do you have any bad habits?
Fien: I sometimes can’t stop licking my paws…
Rosie: No, I don’t think I have any bad habits!
Fien: Yes you do too Rosie!! You always push me aside! Or you sit on me!
Rosie: Is that a bad habit?
What do you think is your best quality?
Fien: I think I’m a very reliable pug. Mom and dad can really count on me. And so can Rosie.
Rosie: I find ‘reliable’ a difficult word. My best quality is that I can run really fast. And I can eat even faster!
Fien: Rosie, I don’t think that’s a “quality” but never mind.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Fien: We wake up, and we’ll wait for dad, because most of the times he gives us our breakfast.
Rosie: ..We’re very happy when he shows up.. not only because he gives us our breakfast but also because we lick and finish dad’s yoghurt bowl, so yummy!
Fien: The rest of the day, we play, and nap and cuddle, and take a walk with mom, and during our walk we always do some shopping with mom.
Rosie: We meet a lot of people during our walk and everyone seems to love us.
Fien: In the afternoon we play some more and we nap some more..
Rosie: …and then we wait for dinnertime… Fien and I love dinnertime!
Fien: After dinner we cuddle up with mom on the sofa, we don’t want her to move!
Rosie: We really love cuddling! (Almost as much as eating!)
What has been your most favourite adventure that you have been on?
Fien: I’ve been to Paris! A long time ago, with mom and dad, when Rosie wasn’t born yet. I’ve seen the Eiffel Tower!
Rosie: I wanna go to Paris too!! (cries)
Fien: Answer the question Rosie: what was your best adventure?
Rosie: (sniffing) I don’t think I’ve been on a real adventure yet…
What do you love most about having an Instagram Account?
Fien: We receive lots of Private Messages from people who say they love us and that we make them so happy! I feel very fortunate to be able to make people happy and to bring a smile to their faces!
Rosie: I like our Instagram Account because mom needs to make pictures of us and there are a lot of snackies involved!
Where can we follow your daily adventures?
Fien: Our Instagram Account is called: @thedutchpugsisters
Rosie: It’s called that way because we’re Dutch. And because we’re pugs. And also because we’re sisters.
