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 ever adorable Moose who is taking Instagram by storm with his awesomeness. Get to know this cool dude in his interview.
Name: Moose the Pug
Age: 1 year old
Birth date: January 25, 2015
Gotcha date: April 03, 2015, which was da Good Friday
Where do you live?
I live in Toronto, aka the 6ix, but I was born near Buffalo, NY
What is your favourite time of the day?
My favourite time of day is family couch time. This is when we all get cozy on the couch after dinner. I can’t wait, so I run into the living room while my hoomans are eating and I sit by the couch. Momma takes a blanket and makes a cozy pocket by her feet on da pouf and I snuggle in with my chewie bone and a stuffie so that I have some options and don’t have to go get more toys.
What is your favourite food?
I eat an all natural wheat free food which I love. It’s salmon with spinach, cranberries, and blueberries. I will wait for my food like a good boy but I am always vibrating with excitement. But really, my most favourite food in da world, has to be that smooth peanut butter!!!
Do you have a toy that you can’t live without?
I cannot live without my moose stuffie. I chewed and sucked through my first one as a little pup and I am on my second one now. Someone left da cupboard door open the other day, and I spotted a spare, so I know that I have moose stuffies for life.
What do you hate the most?
I hate it when my hoomans go somewhere without me. I try and let them know that I can really go anywhere, and I try to be such a good boy, but sometimes they go out and leave me at home and I get really sad about this. But, they always leave me with peanut butter and sweet jams playing so I mostly just snooze and wait for them to come home.
What do you love the most?
Da best is when I get my tummy tickles. I like to have this all the time, especially when I run up the stairs and hide under da bench in my hoomans room. They come to get me and I must go crazy and get lots of belly rubs before I will go back downstairs. I also love going to obedience and agility class because I am in grade 3 and learning lots of neat things. By the time you read dis I am hopefully in grade 4!
Do you have any bad habits?
I am working hard on my bad habits but it is not that easy. I like to bark out the backyard window when I see the squirrels, or smoke from a chimney, or the clouds floating by. I also like to pick up twigs and run away with them in the backyard so my momma chases me, and I think this is da best game ever.
What do you think is your best quality?
People say dat I have big beautiful eyes and very soft fur. I like these things about myself. I also like to make people happy with snuggles and kisses and sitting on their feet to keep their tosies warm.
What does a typical day look like for you?
I am now sleeping in da big bed with my hoomans. Sometimes I like to wake up around 4:45am with some deep yoga stretches and then I lick their faces and usually sit on da pillow, on their heads. When I do this they will get up because they know I need to have my brekkie and do my business. I will gobble down my food and then get my face washed. After this I will take out my favourite toy and sit on mommas feet for a chew. Then I can hear them making smoothies and I wait for my peanut butter spoon. I will lick it clean which is a big help I think. When pops takes a shower I will sit next to the tub because he will always give me shower kisses. I cannot let him get away without giving me dem smoochies! We’ll probably go for a walk in High Park and then I will be all snoozie for the rest of the day just waiting for family couch time.
You seem to love spending time in front of the camera creating such fun photos for your Instagram account. What inspires your photos?
I love to make people smile and get da treats for my good poses! I love to explore new places in da city and it’s fun to take photos when I am learning about new things.
What do you love most about having an Instagram account?
My favourite thing has been making new friends, making people happy, and seeing everyone’s beautiful photos!
Where can we follow your daily adventures?
Right now I am into Instagram @itsmoosethepug and I like to Twitter every Wednesday night for #pugchat
