Bio: Paris was found through puppyfind.com. Flew her from Arizona and saved her from the plaid printed chair and hot dry heat. She is Loving California!
I turned four in March this year and that makes me 32 years in human age! Wow, I am old.
They say that you can calculate dog years to human years by taking the year, multiply it by 7 equals...well, that would have been a nice number but our age is much older than that.
http://www.dogyears.com/ Our lifespan is much shorter, so that makes me older than my human mom and dad.
I could not be happier with my family. Lately, I have been at the grandparents house in the suburbs since someone is always home to give me a good belly rub AND give me treats. Ah, the PUG LIFE! I also get to see my cousin Zoe a lot. She and I enjoy playing when it's on the grass. She is young and quite playful. The big thing we have in common is - we love food. We don't know when to stop eating...it's not our fault we are given cut up vegetables and fruit everyday. But we do our best not to beg.
At 4 years old, I am happy to be healthy and shedding...just kidding. I am healthy and loved and so glad to be able to bring smiles to everyone around me.
Paris put us through quite a daunting experience the first few months we had her. Being dog-owners for the first time, we became frustrated, nervous, and worrysome. We didn't think we would get by the next few months knowing Paris had developed parasites, diahhrea, allergies and mites. The amount of money we spent on vet and medication bills was adding up tremendously, putting holes in our pockets. But we knew we had to do whatever it took to keep her healthy and happy. Months after chewed up clothing, pillows, carpeting, walls and furniture, we managed to find these abhorrent acts of hers quite funny! Her stubborn and silly ways nevertheless, brought us laughter. Her mischieviousness is one of her unique characteristics, always scoping with her head and two front paws through travel luggages, purses and shopping bags, in search of some item to shred or chew. She mostly enjoys being chased around, playing tug-of-war and performing tricks, for treats of course! Perhaps she still has a bit of housebreaking to do, but it isn't her fault her parents forget to take her outside to do her business. Socially, Paris is very fond of young, small puppies who will make her feel a little more superior, as larger dogs...well, she doesn't really bother. Despite our first year's experience of sleepless nights and early morning calls, Paris has become the greatest and loving puggy we had ever brought home!
