Player of the Month: PUMBA!

Ok bitches, this is a danger alert! His gaze is daring, eyes piercing strong with desire, his smile will make you weak – yes we are barking about the one and only Norwegian Staffordshire Bull Terrier : Pumba. 

He’s been spotted with numerous lady friends…strolling in the park, sharing snacks and even play dates. 

Should you bump into him, avoid any eye contact – he was born a natural seducer. Sources confirmed he will make your legs wobbly with words like (we quote) “Lets play baby”… 

Should you ignore PETS advice, you can’t say we didn’t warn you.

There were rumours, we weren’t sure what was going on between the two but now truth has been told.

 This week, we’re devastated to announce Cooper and Cookie are JUST FRIENDS. In one of his latest posts, Cooper shared his heartbreak of being friend-zoned despite his romantic gestures including gifting her with a bouquet.

Well what can we say, the heart wants what it wants.

 Cookie herself disclaimed that she still loves him…in a friendly way. Ouch! We’ve all been there now the real question remains – Why?

 Is she taken? Is Cooper just not her breed?

 Stay tuned to find out!




Despacito? Not for Pablito

Oh my paw.. Have you heard? 

One of our favourite Blue brindle Frenchie’s has landed several major ad campaigns. Just this week he revealed in an Instagram post his collaboration with the Three Dog Bakery from Missouri (major!)

Pablito has worked with Chewpreme, Icondogwear and Hype Pups – just to mention a few.

The latest news were shared by a close friend of Pablito’s, “It’s still top secret but he will be the face of Pupreme’s newest shortfilm!” The source also confirmed, “He’s very humble about it, trying to stay cool but I think internally he’s got dog bumps.” 

Well we are rooting for this little guy, he’s got the looks and the attitude!
