One of my favorite things about being a professional Pet Blogger
is meeting incredible people and their pets through social media.
Most often just by chance. It's like I have a Social
Media Guardian Angel that directs me through the web to discover
heart warming stories which I was meant to know about. (This
leads me to picture an angel holding an iPad in one hand and an
iPhone in the other).
Meet Ambrose the Pug. Just by chance I
found him on Twitter. I contacted his parents and
had them send me information on their furry kid. You have
got to love his award winning tongue.
"Ambrose is definitely a character, and was the greatest
addition to our home. We adopted Ambrose from the
Pacific Pug Rescue
, just outside of
Portland, OR shortly after we got married (I believe it
was July of 2008)
. Prior to that, he
unfortunately had breathing problems that prevented him
from ever getting much sleep. Around the age of 6,
Ambrose had a tracheotomy in an attempt to fix his
breathing, but from what we were told, the first one was
botched and his breathing wasn't any better than
before. That's when he was given to the
Pacific Pug Rescue
, and they held a
fundraiser for Ambrose to get him a second
We fell in love with Ambrose's grumpy pug looks
on the PPR website
, and arranged a
meeting at our place. He had just recently had the
second tracheotomy, in which a tube was placed in his wind
pipe to keep it open, as it had a tendency to
collapse. With this second surgery being successful,
Ambrose now loves to and gets plenty of sleep. He
loves to go for walks and car rides, and is quite an
attention hog. When sitting on the couch, he insists
that his head must be resting on one of us at all times.
Ambrose's tongue sticks out at nearly all times. The
happier he is, and the hotter it is outside, the longer it
appears to be. But on the flip side, we can always tell
when he's angry, because it's the only time that his tongue is
completely in his mouth.
We also recently got into the
child adoption process, and Ambrose is helping us raise funds
by generously letting us use his likeness for t-shirts,
re-usable tote bags and more.
Thanks again for wanting to do a write up about Ambrose.
He's a truly great dog that has enriched our lives in an untold
number of ways".

for an adoption.
