Elmo the Pug
Age: 10 Years Old.
Favorite Toy: Anything that is furry and has a squeaky in it. Currently it’s a duck.
Favorite Napping Spot: In the guest bedroom at home around 10 AM when the sunlight hits the carpet.
Do you sleep with Mom & Dad in the bed? Only on the weekends (or when mom is out of town!). Otherwise no, as I snore too loud.
Favorite Treat: Rawhide bones that dad calls my cigarettes. I also get to lick a spoon of peanut butter every morning.
Favorite activity: Checking out all of the local street festivals in Chicago.
Biggest Quirk: I can snore with my eyes open and I like to be where the action is.
Walk or Run? I’m a short distance runner
Chase or be Chased? I preferred to be chased, let the ladies come after me
Where did Mom & Dad rescue you from? I was adopted by my parents in Iowa via the Pug Rescue Society of Nebraska. Prior to them I was living on a farm in Iowa with a lot of other pugs, life was great but i’m a city man.
Personal Story: One time I overindulged in caramel chews and had such bad diarrhea on grandma’s white rug that I nearly launched myself into a wall.
