Hi, my name is Panda and I am a 4 year old Frenchie who lives with my family in the suburbs of Dallas, TX.
I have THE life.
In fact, the world revolves around me. I am going to take you on a little sneak-peek into my day and all the exciting adventures that surround me.
First thing in the morning, I sneak into my mommy’s room and launch myself repeatedly against her bed which is a little too high for me to jump onto myself. If I am persistent, she will reach down and pull me up to sleep a little longer. I am really good at laying very still and becoming completely invisible.
People don’t even realize I am there.
Sometimes I can stay a very long time because I am so still.
Once the day starts, it is my duty to greet the public from the porch.
My house is on a corner with sidewalks on three sides.
I believe it was built this way so many people (and their dogs) could walk by and see me on a regular basis.
This vantage point allows me to choose whether to nod, bark or jump off the porch and run alongside the fence.
People walk from all over the neighborhood to talk to me.
Sometimes it is exhausting to keep up with all the attention, but I know how important it is to be available to my fans.
After my morning greetings, I sit with my mommy while she works and takes calls from my porch.
It is important for her safety and entertainment that I stay alert and by her side.
If I do a really good job, then I am rewarded with my favorite treat.
They are new and my mommy buys them at Walmart. I like how tender they are and both flavors, Beef & Pork, are my favorite.
Hey, I can have two favorite flavors…they taste very meaty!
Most of the time my mommy breaks the Jerky Bites into smaller pieces because I am not the biggest dog, but every once in a while she gives me the whole thing!
I usually take a nap, or two, or three in the afternoon.
It is exhausting being this cute and in-demand.
Sometimes when I wake up, I am craving more Pup-Peroni treats.
If I can find them, and if I can look completely adorable…
Sometimes I am so irresistible that my family can’t help but give me a second helping.
And then it is THAT time of day…
…time to go for a walk! <— Shhh, don’t tell my family, but I can even SPELL the word “walk”.
They think they are being sneaky by talking about walking by spelling it or using code words, but I am completely aware of what they are doing.
But I keep quiet next to the leash and watch for the clues that we are leaving the house.
Sometimes we walk through the neighborhood.
Sometimes we walk to the dog park.
Sometimes we take a trail.
I don’t care. I like to walk. It gives me more chances to connect with my fans.
And then when it is bedtime, I try to sneak back into mommy’s bed, but one of the boys grabs me before I can get there.
I grumble a little, but secretly like that they fight over who gets to sleep with me.
Good night & sweet dreams…
A Note from Panda’s Mommy (you know me as Holly from KidsActivitiesBlog.com):
Panda isn’t actually a celebrity. She just thinks she is. I can’t blame her. She gets a lot of attention and is treated very well! She absolutely loves Pup-Peroni Jerky Bites. I like that they are made with premium ingredients (beef or pork is the number-one ingredient) without grain, meat by-products, fillers or artificial flavors.
What Panda won’t tell you is that she has a sensitive stomach which is why we love Pup-Peroni even more because I now have something to give her between meals that she loves.
