Me: Thanks for taking the time to sit with me and do this interview.
4-Legged-Creature: [panting deeply, looking around, wagging tail]
Me: I know it's hard for you to sit still. But please, for the sake of the interview, try to calm down and not get so excited.
Me: What's your name?
Me: Your Breed?
4LC: I'm a puggle. It's one of those new très chic hybrid breeds. Means I'm half Pug and half Beagle.
Me: What's your favorite thing to do?
4LC: Follow you around, waiting for treats and/or praise.
Me: What about when no one is home?
4LC: Barking at the squirrels in the front yard. Followed by continuous jumping in the same spot in an attempt to see what is on the kitchen counter. Then I go through your dirty laundry in search of an article of clothing to nap with, then take said nap. Nap is followed by barking at the mailman. Then running in circles chasing my tail followed by another nap (time permitting), and finally barking at kids on their way home from school.
Me: Wow! Sounds like a rough day.
4LC: Hey! It's a Dog-Eat-Dog World out there.

Me: What do you hate the most?
4LC: Going out to tinkle when it's raining.
Me: What do you like best about being a puggle?
4LC: Everyone just LOVES my baby pics. (see me below - aren't i adorable)
Me: Your favorite treats?
4LC: Bananas, Bacon, and if no one is around, the entire pan of Costco Lasagna that was left cooling on the kitchen counter... burp! Excuse me.
Me: Who's your favorite member of the family?
4LC: You are my favorite, Mom. Unless we're speaking victims here...then it'd have to be LittleDuckling. He is such an easy target, always forgetting to guard his candy and such...
Me: Anything else you'd like to add?
4LC: [distracted]...huh? what? Oh no, nothing else. I'd really like to go now though. Bang is outside (the neighbor's dog). Now there's a
Well, there you have it. Every member of the fam has now been officially interviewed. Click here if you missed one.
What? What's that? No Mr. Dust Bunny - just because you've lived under the sofa for months on end does not make you a member of this family. No, I will not interview you. Nor you, Mr. Chia Pet, so don't get any ideas...
