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 unbelievably adorable Tuesday. Get to know this gorgeous lady in her interview.
My full name is Lady Tuesday the Pug as I am a very fancy and sophisticated lady. But most of the time I just go by Tuesday.
I am 8 years young! And man, do I look good for my age! Just look at my luscious white fuzz – it’s super soft. Nobody can resist giving this old puggy a pet.
Birth date or Gotcha Date:
My gotcha date is March 11! It was a very good day – I met Mother for the first time and got a second chance at life! Before I was rescued I had spent the first 4 years of my young life inside of a crate in the basement of an apartment complex. I was sad and lonely but after I was rescued I never thought about it again! I am one happy pug!
Where do you live?
Currently, I live in Syracuse, New York. Man vs. Food came here a little while ago to see if he could master our cuisine of delicious BBQ Ribs at a place called Dinosaur BBQ. He should have asked me called me! I would have helped! I LOVE BBQ!
What is your favourite time of the day?
Dinner seems to be a very delicious time of the day! One time I even got a second dinner. It was the VERY BEST DAY EVER. You see, Mother fed me at my usual 5 pm. But I was quite famished that day, so I scarfed that up pretty quick and then required more yummy kibble. I noticed that Daddy was not paying much attention to me so I quick worked my way over to him, gave him my best baby eyes, and sang him a little song. It worked! Second dinner for me! Dummy…
What is your favourite food?
All foods are good foods in my book! But I especially appreciate breakfast foods. My Mother makes me and my brother Louie our own personal mini pancakes. Sometimes she even dips them in syrup for added deliciousness.
Do you have a toy that you can’t live without?
In addition to being a very fancy lady, I can also be a ferocious beast. My latest victim… I mean cuddle buddy.. is my Bummlie. He arrived in the mysterious box my parents call “the mail” from my friend Archie and Melissa (@pugnotes). He has been my nemesis ever since. He mocks me with his smug beady eyes and delicious knobby legs. In one of our recent battles Bummlievaliantly lost a leg. Mother stitched him up as I feasted on his insides. Next time we meet – I will make sure he loses more than just his leg. His head will be mounted on my wall.
What do you hate the most?
My paws being touched! I don’t understand all these people’s fascination with poking at my feet! I don’t walk up to you with big scary lawn sheers and try to cut your toes off.. so lay off of mine! Besides, I need my talons to scratch at Mother. Sometimes she needs a helpful reminder about who is the boss of the house.
What do you love the most?
I suppose that I love my family the most. They are good peoples. Louie is an adopted rescue like me. He arrived a year ago and likes to cuddle with me and steal my toys. I tolerate it because Mother says I have to be a good big sister. Mother and Daddy are pretty a-OK too.
Do you have any bad habits?
Daddy has said that I have an “attitude problem”. Mother thinks that I am a perfect angel. I tend to agree with Mother… obviously.
What does a typical day look like for you?
I try to keep to a very strict schedule. First, I wake up at 5 am and demand breakfast from Mother. A sharp tap to the face usually does the trick in waking her. However, sometimes I need to be more stern with her – climbing across her chest typically works. After I am nice and full from breakfast I brave the morning air for poops. Upon returning indoors I allow Louie to have a few minutes of tug-a-war with me. Only for a couple minutes though because after that it is nap time! It takes a lot of beauty sleep to look this gorgeous all the time. Louie will usually join me after he as settled down, and he needs it! Have you seen his face? He needs all the beauty sleep he can get!
While the pawrents are at work, Mother spy’s on me with the nanny cam. She doesn’t think I know about it, but I do and I find this quite rude. Privacy PLEASE! Sometimes I enjoy mocking Mother while she watches. Louie and I will dump our toy bin and toss all of our things around the house! And there is nothing she can do about it! (HA HA Mother!)
Once our parents return, I tolerate an afternoon walk – but only to keep up my figure. I would much rather still be sleeping! My stroll leaves me quite famished so I require a hearty scoop of kibble after coming inside. Following dinner, it is my playtime. I like to get my zoomies out in the house with Louie during the pawrent’s dinner. I think they quite appreciate this as well. Bedtime is strictly at 10pm… (don’t forget about the beauty sleep thing)! As queen of the house, I always grab the coziest spot on the bed – Mother’s head. She should thank me for this, I make a wonderful head warmer. Plus I give her free face massages when I give her kicks to the face during the night! I should really start renting out my services!
I hear that you have created a bucket list. What is on your bucket list?
My bucket list is quite long! Every time I cross something off, Mother seems to add 10 more things!
Here are a few things that are on my list, big and small:
- March in a Parade
- Go to a Yappyhour
- Go to a Doggy Birthday Party
- Go to a Hockey Game
- Go to Woofstock
- Get a Doggie Massage
- Eat a Cheeseburger
- Meet my Online Pug Friends
- Go to the Drive In Movie Theatre
- Swim in the Ocean
Here are some things we have crossed off, big and small:
- Start a Local Community Pug Meetup Group
- Ride in an Elevator
- Stay in a Pet-Friendly Hotel
- Tuesday Tattoo (On mother – no tattoos for this beautiful pug, but she has my face forever on her arm)
- Walk Down the Aisle
- Order Donuts at the Drive-In
- Go to Work with Mother
- Ride in a Kayak
- Model for Mother’s Bowtie Business
- Walk a 5k Charity for Pug Rescue
What has been your favourite bucket list item that you’ve ticked off already?
The biggest and most elaborate thing that I crossed off my bucket list this year was my parent’s super pawsome pug wedding! Everything was ME themed and it was so cool! Louie and I were the Pugs-Of-Honor and walked down the aisle to our own song! The Stylish Bisou (@TheStylishBisou) made Louie and I custom outfits for the event. She even made me a special tutu so I could get my boogie on during the reception! There were delicious cupcakes with my face (and butt!) on them. Golden pugs sat on all the tables as a constant reminder to the guests of my cuteness!
Most importantly, Mother tried to make sure everything we did gave back to our local pug charity, Curly Tail Pug Rescue (@CurlyTailPugRescue). Instead of registering for towels, dishes, sheets, and other things we didn’t need, we asked our guests to donate to CTPR in honor of our new family… although we could have registered for bacon! That would have been okay with me!
For the favors, we collaborated with both CTPR and Curly Tail Coffee (@CurlyTailCoffee). CTPR made special coffee mugs with their logo on it for us and the profit went right back to the pugs in their care! Then Curly Tail Coffee made us all sorts of delicious sounding coffee flavors to put in the mugs! Mother says I can’t have coffee, but Daddy said it was quite delicious. Curly Tail Coffee donated $1 to CTPR for every bag we bought! Making sure our pug wedding benefitted needy pugs was very important to our little family because they would be lost without my cute face.
What bucket list item are you most excited for in the near future?
This weekend (528 – 5/29) I am traveling to Woofstock in Toronto, Canada! I am going to cross many things off my pug bucket list! This will be my first international vacation! I will be winning… I mean competing in the ‘Running of the Pugs’ (GOOGLE VIDEOS OF THIS IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THIS HILARITY). Also, Doug the Pug will be there and we are going to become best friends. I might even let him sniff my butt! So many fun things!
Why would you recommend other pugs and dogs alike create a bucket list?
Everypuggy should create a bucket list! Having it has let me and my family do special things together that we wouldn’t normally do. Our time together is so short and I want to spend every moment I have doing special things with them!
