This is my bestest buddy in the whole wide pugverse, Spencer Bartholomew! I want to share how our relationship began. See there is this really neat dog park close to where I live and I've had the pleasure of going there and playing since I was about 16 weeks young (oh I was so thin back then, but I digress). I had gone to this park several times and I had never come across a fellow pug. One evening mom and dad braved the cold wind (hey it's California if it's 70 it's cold!), and we went to this dog park. Lo and behold hiding under a bench was this oh so cute fawn pug. Now we didn't actually get the chance to meet, he was shy and I was a spazz, and I was too busy playing with all the other dogs to take note. A week had gone by, and once again I found myself at this park, with this pug only this time there weren't so many other dogs. I decided he was going to play with me, so I went and made the necessary introductions. Within a few minutes we were off, he a chaser and I being chased. My mom and dad laughing, his grandparents happy he found a friend. We ran ourselves silly that night, staying until dark being the last ones in the park. A few weeks later I ran into my friend again, this time he was with his mommy, and we instantly had our connection.
We've attended pug events together, and we have our secret play dates. Our moms laugh at how silly we are, and wonder over our waistlines. Spencer and I just run and run, chasing each other. Often times, he barks at me to get my butt moving...I did have that extra cookie when no one was looking...so I slowly get up and chase him. He jumps on top of the picnic table and I decided to follow, after all who cares that we have the whole dog park to ourselves, it's much better to play on top of the park bench while our moms try to have a discussion. Oh our silliness never ends.
Who is your best friend? Do they make you happy just to see them? Are you giddy with excitement when you get to meet? I hope you would like to share your best friend stories with me. My bestest friend in the whole pugverse is Spencer Bartholomew and this blog is for you!
