Today I thought I'd give a shout-out to some of the puggies' new friends in the blog world. Thanks Wilma and Winston for welcoming Klaus and Natty into your clubs! We love reading your blogs (and all of the other puggy blogs out there) and are happy to be making new friends! And to help you get to know us a little better, we'll fill out Pearl's quiz too. :)
1.) Name and Age:
Klaus: Big 3.5-year-old boy! Born October 28, 2006
Natty: Approximately 3 years old :) Natty was found as a stray, so we're not exactly sure how old she is...but that's our best guess.
2.) Breed: Puggy bears
3.) Nickname(s): Too many to name...but here's a sampling. :)
Klausie: The Bean, Klausimous, Stinky, Sweet boy, Monkey
Natty: Natalie, Nataloo, Louie, Louie-belle, Gurrl
4.) Where'd ya come from?
Klaus: Loved from afar since he was born, we watched him grow in photographs. We drove 5 hours to pick him up from a breeder in Indiana. The best Christmas present I ever received!
Natty: Natty was a rescue from NIPRA. She was found as a stray in the dead of winter in Kankakee. She was in bad shape, and we don't know much about where she came from, but we sure are glad she's with us now! The best little girl we could've ever hoped for.
Klaus: Santa loofa dog
Natty: Stuffed white dog from Ikea
3.) Human person:
Natty: Daddy! And Mom too!
1.) Worst habit:
Klaus: Humping Natty (tough guy), barking/whining/growling at Mom to get his way
Natty: Raiding Mom's dirty laundry, eating tissues out of the garbage
2.) Most embarrassing moment:
Klaus: When someone watches him poop
Natty: Gland expression (oh Natty...it's not enjoyable for us, either)
3.) Family dynamic (this is a question for those of you with more than one animal in the house. i.e. who is alpha? who is the cuddler? who is the naughty one? etc. I just want to know how you fit into the family!)
Klausie is the top dog, but only because Natty lets him be. (She's too good-natured to be bothered with a power struggle, but she could kick his butt.) He is a sweet and sensitive little guy, a little bit anxious, and needs his Mom ALL the time! He is my cuddly and licky little man. He's also our little protector, and gets FIERCE when he feels the need. Natty is more independent, though also cuddly and affectionate. She likes to chase birds and believes she is a fierce hunter. She also likes to watch TV, and is quite a talker. She likes to plant herself on your lap, facing you, and give tiny whiskery puggy kisses. These pugs have no concept of personal space; they are the very definition of lap dogs.
4.) Your humans' FAVORITE thing about you!: Oh no, this is too tough. I could write a book...
Klaus: Klausie is my best buddy; he's my shadow and is never far from my side. I can always count on my little dude to make everything better with a kiss or a cuddle. He comforts me and brings me joy every day.
Natty: Natty is so enthusiastic about everything. She is such an eager little girl, such a delight; it's such a joy to share in her excitement. She is becoming a sassy little princess, and it is so much fun to see her personality come out more and more each day.
They both keep me laughing, every single day. :) Never a dull moment when the pugs are around!
