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 adorable Yali!
Birth Date or Gotcha Date: 03/30/2007
Where do you live? Boston, MA, USA
What is your favourite time of the day?
My favorite time of day is anytime I’m with my human or eating. It can be treats, meals or a taste of their human food.
I also love sleeping bum to bum with my human, it makes me feel at ease and lets me know when they get up. I’m monitoring their every move.
What is your favourite food?
Definitely not dog food.
I love meats, seafood and light whip cream! I usually like to always have chicken jerky on hand. Sometimes mom makes ground beef/turkey to put on my kibbles/wet food mix, along with my daily supplements that I may or may not eat.
I HATE vegetables, I can’t understand how some dogs will eat salad leaves or anything green for that matter. The only veggie I’d eat is yam but even then it depends on my mood.
I’m not too food crazy like most of my kind…
Do you have a toy that you can’t live without?
Not anymore, as you age, you realize if you can’t eat it, then don’t bother…..
Actually, mom has a treat dispensing toy that I will “play” with.
What do you hate the most?
This list may be long:
1. being left alone for long periods of time…
2. teeth brushing (it happens every night)
3. Nail clipping
4. People eating and not sharing with me.
5. Other dogs all up in my business (sniffing my bum for too long, trying to hump me, etc)
6. Anytime anyone tries to leave… (even strangers on the street that just said Hi to me)
What do you love the most?
This list is long as well:
1. People & babies
2. People food (with low to no sodium!)
3. Being comfortable and finding chin rests
5. Humans having conversations with me even if I don’t respond.
6. Laying in the sun (with temp in 60-75 range)
7. Traveling and sniffing new things/places.
Do you have any bad habits?
Nope! I’m the best version of me.
What do you think is your best quality?
I’d say my sophisticated demeanor. I’m a pug lady. I have very good manners, will wait for treats, never fight for them. Will not eat everything just bc they’re in front of me, and will spit some food out if they’re not made to my taste. I have high standards.
What does a typical day look like for you?
I wake up whenever my human wakes up, can be anytime between 6am to noon.. I’d never wake her up if she doesn’t wake up on her own. I love to sleep in. Then she has coffee and feeds me, typically waits 30 min to an hour to take me out.. I just wait patiently after eating. After my meals, I like to roll around in my bed, wiping my face while doing a happy dance. Then I’ll just sleep through most days, with intermittent treats if she’s home. Then I get dinner, watch my human do whatever it is she does to unwind.. Follow her around.. She takes me out before bedtime and cleans my wrinkles/teeth before bed.
What is your favourite adventure you have been on so far?
I get to travel a lot with my mom bc her works requires it. So I’ve actually been to 20+ states! I love going to new cities and sniffing new things, meeting new dogs on the streets.. Some of the cities I’ve been to include: LA, SF, St’ Louis, NYC, Detroit, Dallas, Seattle, DC, Chicago, etc.
My life is pretty exciting for a senior dog!
What do you love most about having an Instagram account?
Instagram has brought us to so many other fellow dog/pug lovers.
There’s so much love, positivity, support on IG. I love the daily communications we have with each of our followers/friends. I love reading comments, seeing likes and doing the same in return. It brings a smile to my face every time.
When you’re having a bad day, opening IG instantly transports me to a better world where I forget all my troubles.
It’s a place where we share our joy, sorrows and everything in between.
I’m lucky to have met quite a few of my IG friends IRL on my travels 🙂
