On this episode of Interviews from Edie’s Pug House
The Stunning and Most Humorous Pug Ever
Tuesday the Pug!
Q) Tuesday, let’s start off by telling everyone a bit about yourself:
A) Hello Miss Edie, hello puguniverse! My name is Lady Tuesday, better known as Tuesday the Pug! I am a rescue, ~9-10 years young and I am living the fabulous pug life in Syracuse, New York!
Q) Tuesday, not a typical name. Tell us more about how you came to be known as “Tuesday the Pug”.
A) You’re right! It is quite the unusual name and I have heard all the jokes! Most commonly, “If you’re Tuesday… what happened to Monday!?” But my name is kind of a strange story. My mom was a child of the 90s, and was OBSESSED with the American Girl magazine. The magazine included the quintessential fashion trends of the average teen, articles about dealing with bullies, crushes, and BFFs, and of course personality quizzes! Thirteen-year-old mom took a silly quiz to determine her “spy name” should she ever decide on a career in espionage later on in life. To determine your name, you’d match the initials of your name to their correlating word. Mom’s initials are KLT, making her spy name, Lady Tuesday (she must have hated whatever the K-word was because she never used it and can’t remember it). She just loved the sound of that and made it her mission that her first ever pug would be named Lady Tuesday. And here I am!
Q) You share your home with your brother Louie, what’s that like, does he try to steal your limelight – and your treats?
A) Uh, he TOTALLY steals the show! Before Louie came along, I was the baby, the only child, and the superstar. And now.. forget it! Louie has to take everything I love! For example, I use take a few leisurely naps, you know, just to stay sharp. And now, forget it! Every time I try and close my eyes for a wee second of slumber, BAM THERE HE IS! Louie in your face, or licking my ears, or trying to squeeze his fat butt into my bed, or trying to run off with my boyfriend, Mr. Moose. He’s relentless!
And don’t even get me started on snackies! He thought that because he’s taller and faster than me that he gets my snacks.. OH NO! I nipped that right in the bud, quite literally, pretty quick. Now he doesn’t even DARE look at my treats.
Q) Tuesday you have what I like to call “Pugatude”! You have to be one of the most fashion forward pugs out there, where does your fashion inspiration come from?
A) You could say that I am a diva, and the older I get, the more I earn that title! Mother thought that I was losing my hearing, took me to Dr. McVet Lady and everything! I tried explaining, “Ma, I can hear just fine, I just not listening TO YOU!”.. Duh…
But you asked about my fashion! I pride my puggyself on breaking puggy gender norms. This lady can rock a beautiful tutu one day, and the next, a suit and bow tie! I like my bow ties so much that mother even started a company in my name sake, Tuesday’s Ties! Which by the way, I did not give her permission to use my name, thank you very much #dispuggybettergetpaid! I am extremely fortunate to have mega talented and creative friends that keep me well dressed!
Currently, I have my own closet as I need a place to store all my things, I mean, I have at least 6 crowns! They need to go somewhere! Mom and Dad are buying a house next year and I told them, I require my own walk in closet! AT THE MINIMUM! No walk in.. me no moving!
Q) Do you have any dislikes?
A) I have MANY dislikes! Shall I give you my running list!?
- NO TOUCHY OF THE PAWS! Don’t even look at them, in fact, don’t even THINK about looking at them.!
- Wet Grass. How is this even a thing!? My do-not-even-think-about-them-paws shouldn’t ever be touching wet grass. Someone better take my hair dryer and blow on each blade, otherwise, forget it, I’m not going out there.
- Walking. How is this also a thing!? I have got quite a busy napping schedule, I don’t have time to go outside and WALK! I WILL tolerate a leisurely stroll however, as long as I have free-range sniffing parameters. What can I say, this lady likes to stop and smell the roses!
Q) Human bed or dog bed?
A) What’s a dog bed? I sleep in a Queen bed, for the obvious reason that I am a queen. But I as I am a generous ruler, I share it with Louie and my parents.
Q) Tell us something about your pug self that no one knows – we can keep a secret 🙂
A) Well I can let you in on a little secret! Louie and I are about to double our grumble! You might remember our frenchie cousins, Vito and Bella. Well you are about to see a WHOLE lot more of them because we are about to become housemates! Think of all that snorting – it’s going to be pug-demonium!
Thank you so much to Tuesday, her brother Louie and her mom for sharing their pawsome story and allowing us to interview such Pug Royalty! And a BIG congratulations on your newest additions, Vito and Bella, I can’t wait to hear all the stories and of course see the fabulous wardrobes I’m sure are in store for them!
