My very first tweet!

Little did I know what a ride it would be over the next couple of years!

I thought maybe I’ll meet a few other dog friends, we could woof with each other once in a while, share common interests; our love of food and toys, discuss how I spend the days with my humom and what it’s like living with 2 cats.

In my wildest dreams I never thought I would be writing a post to celebrate reaching:


I’ve tried explaining to “non-twitterers” what I do and it goes one of two ways – A blank stare as they try to figure out what I’m talking about and wondering if I’ve lost my mind, or my favourite – the people who think it’s the greatest thing ever and want to know more about it 🙂

How can anyone, a Pug and her typist included, not like waking up in the morning and being greeted with:

A Good morning tweet

A Barkday wish on your special day

A Tweet that makes you smile or laugh

 Support from friends when you are unwell or having a bad Pug day?

Then of course there have been the opportunities that have come over the past couple of years, opportunities that may never have happened had I not sent out that first tweet.


I was given the opportunity to visit the Ontario SPCA where I  saw pets who are not as fortunate as I.  Since we can’t help or bring every one of them home with us, I help by sharing information about these pets in the hopes that maybe just one of my tweets, posts to my blog, or shares on my Facebook, will give them a chance to find a forever home.


I was honoured to be included in a children’s book that was produced by a fellow friend on twitter.  The proceeds of this book went to benefit Canines for Kids.

A Pug and their food go together like – well, nothing goes together more than Pug’s and their love of food 😉

It was my love food and the love of the Royal Canin brand of food that made another of this Pug’s dreams come true.  I was invited to meet the wonderful people who are behind the scenes in producing my most favourite food ever, and get to tour the Royal Canin facilities.


I also have the honour of being Ambassador to Royal Canin Canada

Not all of my tweets are pet related. Being the Very Social Pug that I am, I like to woof with many, including some companies, one such company is Telus.

What stared out as a Pug tweeting about her love of the Telus commercials, how they make me run to the TV each time they come on, how I cry when I see the critters on TV because I want to play with them, has turned into a wonderful friendship.

Telus didn’t care that I “was just a Pug” woofing with them on twitter. They didn’t care that I wasn’t a Telus customer, (although that has changed in the past 6 months), Telus Support, Telus, and Telus Talks Business answered each and every tweet this Pug has sent them.

I did campaigned to have my dream of becoming a Telus Pug critter come true – it hasn’t happened – yet 😉 but I was recently given the title:


 “Unofficial Critter”


What has been the best thing about being a Pug on twitter?

The personal friendships my humom and I have made.

It wouldn’t seem right not to mention my #Besties who have been with me almost from the beginning, making me smile everyday 🙂


also know as

“Ruthie” with Sweet Maggie and Cat Thomas


My #BigBrother #SeperatedAtBirth


A.K.A. Neems



So how can I say Thank You to my friends?

To Everyone and Everyfurone

  4. My first memory tweeting with edie the pug was a little while ago and what I remember most was thinking how cute is the name “EDIE THE PUG” . It for some reason just seems to epitomize Edie and be so cute at the same time.
