Interview With A Pug Superstar – Must See Xmas Video

I love the holidays with all the glitter, gifts and tasty food that’s everywhere just ready for a beagle pounce!  And most of all I love how everyone gets in a festive mood including some of our favourite brands with their yearly Christmas adverts.

My peep loves watching them and I do too, especially the ones that feature adorable dogs, those ones really get me smiling and I love to see dog actors doing what they do best.

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes when you’re a dog actor? Do you work long hours? Do you get lots of treats? Can you choose your co-star?

Considering I’ve been on TV recently with my peep, I kinda of got a feeling of what it is like being on a set and how you have to do the same thing over and over again.

However I’m not a professional dog actor so when Vision Direct told us that they had a behind the scene interview with Gizmo who is a superstar pug, I had to get my paws on it and see what I could learn.

Now if you haven’t seen the original video I suggest that you snuggle up on the sofa, grab your dog for a cuddle and hit the play button now. It’s cute, it’s fuzzy and its a too cute pug in a jumper!

We loved it and even though we know dogs don’t wear glasses or order contacts, the message is simple and it just puts a smile on your face.

Vision Direct hopes that their customers will know that it’s easy to order contact online with them, even during the hectic days of Christmas. A Pug’s Christmas has already received over 500,000 views and 4,000 Facebook shares.
