How did you come to find each other?
When our daughter was 14 we decided to get a puppy. Since we had a pug when she was younger we decided we wanted to stick with that breed. Paisley is definitely Mom's little princess. Even though our daughter is grown, just finished college and is living on her own now, Paisley is still a part of her life.
Does he or she have any pet siblings?
Yes, our rescue puppy, Beau will be a year old next month.
What does he or she love to do everyday?
Paisley loves to be wherever Mom is. She follows me from room to room while i do household tasks .....like laundry, dishes, etc. Wherever I am is where you'll find Paisley. In true pug fashion, she loves to sleep and eat, lol.
What are his or her pet-peeves?
Paisley does not like storms at all. Anytime she hears thunder she barks the entire time.
What is his or her favorite toy?
Paisley had quite a few small stuffed animals that she loves but her favorite is a little stuffed dog named Oliver that is a likeness or a dog we watch on YouTube. Yes, Paisley watches YouTube too!
What is your fondest memory with him/her?
Paisley and I love to cuddle up on the sofa so she can take a nap while I rub her belly. Boy, she has a tough life lol
Do you go on walks?
Oh yes, Paisley and i walk in our neighborhood and my husband calls it "running her traps " bc she follows the exact same route every single time. Each mailbox or house is visited in the exact same order every time.
Does he or she know any tricks?
Paisley snores really loud, does that count? Im only kidding, well... sort of. Paisley knows commands but not actual tricks.
Favorite summer-time activity?
When it is really hot here in Texas, Paisley waits until dusk and goes rabbit hunting. We have several large rabbits that come under the fence in our backyard and eat our grass. Paisley is convinced that she can catch them so she gives chase only to miss them as they dive under the fence. They must not be too fearful bc they come back night after night and the chase is on again. Paisley sure thinks she runs them out of her yard though.
Favorite winter-time activity?
Winter pajamas and extra naps. Cold weather is not her favorite but she can tolerate that better than rain. She cannot stand to get her feet wet. For 8 yrs now, every time it rains i have to carry her to the back of the yard in the pinestraw to potty so her feet won't get wet. Lol
Favorite place to take a nap?
Beside mom on the sofa.
Do they like going on rides in the car?
Paisley loves to go in the car, she pretty much just loves to be with us so, whenever we take her with us, she's happy.
What is his or her favorite food or treat?
Ha ha ha...pugs have ferocious appetites for such small dogs. Her favorite is chicken jerky but you certainly have to be careful with pugs, they can become overweight very quickly if you feed them every time they think they need a treat.
Favorite clothes or costumes?
Paisley loves her winter pajamas. Red with white polka dots. They look like a onesie with a flap on the behind. They are fleece so she loves them.
What is their favorite food?
Boiled chicken is her favorite but she's never met a meal she didn't like.
