Who is in the photo at right?
My name is Jenifer Meadows and I am a Licensed Massage Therapist! This is Lola, our 4-year-old female Cavalier Puggle!
What's the occasion for Coffee with a Canine?
Today Mommy and Daddy have the day off, so we went on a run at the park, and on some days we will end it with a Starbucks coffee date!
I had a tall soy caramel mocchiato, my fall favorite!
Any goodies to go with the coffee?
Daddy had a bacon gouda breakfast sandwich.
How were you and Lola united?
We did a lot of research before bringing home a pup, and realized a puggle was the ideal dog for us, because they are happy to stay inside and tug on lazy days, and also excited to take a nice walk or hike! We searched for about 6 months to find one, and finally came across a ad for someone who's puggle had made puppies with a cavalier spaniel, and was looking for homes! We went to look at the litter, not sure who we would choose, and little Lola made it clear she wanted to be with us. She would follow us around, and bring us toys, but was also relaxed and not very aggressive, giving us a chance to play with the others, always making it known that she wanted our attention! We have been inseparable ever since.
Any treats for Lola on this occasion?
Lola loves to get a Pupicciono, a cup full of whipped cream! We only do this every now and then, but she knows as soon as we pull into the drive thru it is coming, and gets so excited!
How did Lola get her name? Does she have any nicknames?
I have always loved the name Lola, so we picked it out before we met her, and it seems to fit! She does have lots of nicknames! Her full name (because I am silly) is Lola Bella Meadows, so sometimes we call her Bella, sometimes Bubba, sometimes Bo, and sometimes Pooper!
Tennis ball, stick, squeaky-toy...?
Squeaky-toy and Balls for sure! She has a crab that squeaks that is her favorite toy ever, and chasing a ball is her second favorite pastime, next to eating!
Postman, cat, squirrel...?
Lola loves to chase squirrels and birds at the park! We have two cats as well, and she is more intimidated by them then anything!
Where is Lola's favorite place for an outing?
Lola loves the forest and the beach equally ! Lots of trails, smells and things to investigate in the forest!
And at the beach she gets to run, dig and play! She loves the way the way the sand feels under her paws! You can see the excitement when the ocean air hits her nose, and her whole face changes when paws hit the sand!
Who is Lola's best pet-pal?
Lola's best pet-pal is my grandmother's Karen Terrier Bentley.
What is Lola's most endearing quality?
She is so loving, and always so happy to see us. When we are sad or sick, she is extra loving. When we have been gone and come home, she greets us with a furious amount of excitement and kisses!
If Lola could change one thing about you, what would it be?
I definitely think Lola would want me to quit my job and be home always, or that the world would allow her to go with me everywhere! She gets so sad and pouty when I get ready to leave, it's hard to imagine anything else she would change.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life in which Lola could speak, who should voice her?
Lisa Kudrow, as Pheobe from Friends! She is light hearted and playful, always looking on the bright side!
If Lola could answer only one question in English, what would you ask her?
Do we make you happy? I know that is silly, because we can clearly tell she loves us, but it would be great to know how we could make her life even better, because she makes our hearts so full!
