Hi Friends! We’re BACK with another Pet of the Month spotlight! Have you been loving these features so far? I sure hope so, because I have loved sharing these cool pups with this community.
Today, I am thrilled to introduce you to a duo that I came across on Instagram a few months ago. I was so incredibly fascinated with their travels and knew they would be a pair the DailyBarker community would want to get to know. Trust me when I say, you will want to give them a follow and live vicariously through their travels. So… let’s get to it, shall we?
What is your name?
My name is Señor Pupik (meaning “mister belly” in Spanish and Czech).
Where are you from?
While I was born in Písek, Czech Republic, my dad and I are currently nomads living in Airbnb’s and hotels all around the world. 🙂 (Okay, pause for a moment. Christina here…see what I’m talking about?! HOW COOL ARE THEY?!)
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I am a nomadic doggy traveling all around the world. My priorities in life are spending time with other dogs, eating food, hanging out with kids, other adults, and my owner, James (in that order). I hate water and am super afraid of horses, moving chairs, washing machines, and hairdryers. Otherwise, I am a brave 10-month old puppy! I snore a lot and make funny noises. I also have a tail which bulldogs normally don’t have. My vet considers me the fittest bulldog he has ever seen…probably because of my lifestyle! We’re always on the go!
Do you have any nicknames?
You bet I do!
– Pupino (Italian ascent version of my name)
– Pupíček (meaning little Pupik)
– Pepík (very common Czech name that sounds almost the same as Pupik)
How many years have you been on Instagram?
I have been on Instagram for just a few months! We started our account on May 15, 2018!
What got you started on Instagram?
My dad was walking around near our Airbnb in Porto and took some quick photos of me near a local church. The next day, we went to the city center to take more pictures and see the sights. Tourists kept coming up to me to pet me. They encouraged us to start an Instagram account so we decided to make this a lifestyle since James (my dad) loves to take photos and travel and I LOVE people and life in general. 🙂
What does a typical day look like for you?
We start our day by taking cool lifestyle photos around the city we’re visiting. Often times, other dogs and people make their way into our photos, which is great! Our main goal is fun first, work second, so we’re never in a hurry. After our photoshoots, you can find me and my dad enjoying local restaurants, parks, and cafés. When we’re enjoying an afternoon out, tourists and Instagram fans will usually always stop to pet me.
Every now and then, my dad and I like to stay home all day long to relax. 🙂
What is your favorite travel spot?
Oh, Porto Riverside of Douro River, by far!!
If you could be another animal, what would you be?
A red panda…definitely!
What is the one thing, you can’t live without?
Only one? Hmmm…well, my number one priority is always interacting with other animals, so I’ll say that!
What is your favorite meal or thing to eat?
Random tourist’s ice cream.
Tell us one random fact about you that no one knows!
My favorite music band is Tokyo Hotel.
