What does a typical day look like for you?
My typical day consists of The Dark Haired Lady (my human mom) waking me up and taking me out of my crate. Then she brings me outside to express my bladder and help me poop. Back inside, she puts me in my K9 Cart for breakfast. She handfeeds me and helps me drink. She cleans off my face, puts drops in my eyes, Snout Soother on my nose, then I stay in my cart for awhile to help stretch out my legs. Then I’m put on my warm towel on the couch for most of the day. If it is warm & sunny out, I go for a walk in my stroller with my canine brothers & sister. I wait for The Tall Man (my human dad) to come home from work, so that he can sit next to me and watch TV. I’m taken outside throughout the day for pee/poop breaks. Then dinner time, another highlight of my day. More stretching and cleaning, then it’s back on the couch to snuggle & snooze. All of The Bumble Bunch go to sleep around 10pm in our crates.
What do you love most about having siblings?
I have 4 siblings, affectionately known as The Bumble Bunch. They are also all rescues. Usually, they’re annoying, but they do give me something to look at and constant amusement with their foibles and follies.
Kato aka “The Kid” — 5-year old male fawn Pug, private adoption
Penny aka “The Itsy Pug” — 11-year old female fawn Pug, adopted from Pug rescue organization
Marc Antony aka “The Wee One” — 4-year old male Chiweenie (chihuahua/dachshund mix), former stray
Cleo aka “The Sneaky Cat” — 6-year old female tuxedo cat, former stray
You’re an advocate for pug rescue. Why is it important for people to adopt rescue pugs?
I, myself, was rescued and adopted from a local Los Angeles shelter six years ago at the age of 8. My former owner died and his relatives dumped me at the shelter. Fortunately, The Dark Haired Lady saw something in me to adopt me. If she hadn’t, I would most likely not be alive today. There are thousands and thousands of dogs and cats waiting in shelters for their “forever home”. Sadly, many will never find it. No one should purchase a pet from a breeder when there are so many of us available in shelters and rescues. We advocate for the rescue of all shelter pets, especially senior and those with special needs.. like myself (I cannot walk and am now blind). Which is why we started my Zazzle store, where 100% of all proceeds are donated to pet rescue. To date, we have donated nearly $5000 over the past 5 years. www.zazzle.com/thebumblesnot
