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 gorgeous Morty. Get to know Morty in his interview.
Birth date or Gotcha Date: I was born on 17th October 2015, and went to my forever home on 27th December 2015
Where do you live? Adelaide, South Australia
What is your favourite time of the day?
During the week it’s definitely when my humans get home from work because then I get cuddles, walks, playtime and of course dinner! On the weekends I like the morning time best, because mum wakes up to give me my breakfast, which I devour in 2 seconds then return to their bed for cuddles
What is your favourite food?
Cheese wins hands down… chicken a very close second. I recognise both of these foods as they’re coming out of the fridge!
Do you have a toy that you can’t live without?
The breeder my humans got me from gave me this little koala when I was born which I took home with me, and fall asleep sucking every night! He’s looking a little worse for wear now as I may have chewed off both of his eyes and nose
What do you hate the most?
I hate any kind of grooming, whether it be having my face washed, or nails clipped, no thank you!
What do you love the most?
Other than my koala toy, it would have to me my humans! I’m mum’s little shadow, following her everywhere… and I love wrestling with dad every night before we go to sleep. I’m also the Adelaide Crows number one fan, so I love watching them play!
Do you have any bad habits?
I love to lick the couch and my human’s pillows – apparently this is gross! I also went through a stage of digging up/eating treats left by my feline sister Mo in the backyard, again the human’s said this was disgusting… but I don’t see what the problem was!
What do you think is your best quality?
It would have to be how much I love people! I’m definitely a people pup, however this can get a bit awkward for mum when I jump up onto random people’s laps in public!
What does a typical day look like for you?
During the week I wake up when mum gets up and she gives Mo and I our breakfast, then I make myself comfortable on mum and dad’s pillows (after a little lick) and watch them get ready for work. Once they leave I have a little nap, play for a little bit and annoy Mo, then nap again until the humans return. Then I get a walk, dinner, play fetch for a few hours and back to bed! On the weekends Mum always takes me to our local coffee shop in the mornings while dad sleeps in, and then we normally go on some sort of adventure, we’ve been trying to check out all the best dog walking spots in Adelaide so if anyone has any suggestions let us know! Sometimes we catch up with some puggy friends from the Facebook group Pugelaide, which is always awesome fun!
What is your favourite adventure you have been on so far?
I went on a holiday to Normanville over new years, which was great fun! I got to dress up as a very sexy Mexican!
What do you love most about having an Instagram account?
Having an Instagram account is great because we’ve made so many new friends all over the world! I also love all the yummy treats I get for posing for so many photos!
Where can we follow your daily adventures?
