Spot’s Spotlight: Beans & Bindi
(Owners: Christopherson Family)

Welcome to Spot’s Spotlight where DooGooders features a family so you can learn more about our best friends!

Beans & Bindi

Name:  Beans, 6 and Bindi, 1

Breed:  Pugs

Favorite treats:  Waggin’ Train Chicken Jerky and Flossies
Favorite toy:  They mostly just try to chew on our girls’ toys — Squinkies, Legos and crayons top their list!
Funniest habit:  Jumping into the vehicles of everyone who visits our home — they have attempted to hang out with the Schwans man, the garbage man, the Fed-Ex guy, the UPS driver, pizza delivery people, Girl Scouts and extended family.  They run up to everyone and wag their tails, jump around and snort excitedly.  Then they scamper out and hop into their vehicles since everyone wants a pug riding sidekick…ha ha ha!
Thing they love the most: Our daughters, Olivia and Danika and TREATS!!
Thing they dislike the most:  Hippies and people walking through their ‘hood…joggers, bike riders, families on walks, skateboarders and especially other dogs will all get an earful (from behind our screened windows, of course!).

Beans, 6

How they joined your family:  Since I was a child, I had always wanted a pug.  When our daughter Olivia was 2, she and I went to look at puppies.  Initially, it was just to look at them and waste time while we waited for the library to open.  When Liv went right for the pugs, I thought it was a sign!  We had to sell my husband on getting a dog, but we ended up bringing Beans home.  Liv named him Beans–our theory is that she picked that name because she was in a jellybean phase at the time.  When our younger daughter Danika turned 2, I started campaigning for another pug.  Pugs are social and I felt like Beans needed a buddy.  We found Bindi on a farm outside of Sioux Falls.  The girls and I begged for the chance to just go see this little puglet, and my husband agreed.  When we saw that tiny little black puffball with the curly tail and scrappy attitude, we knew we wanted her to join our family!  We actually left her at the farm at first (we wanted to think about getting her) and my husband ended up turning around on the highway about 5 minutes after we left to go back to get her…we KNEW he loved pugs!!  Bindi is SO funny, and we’re glad she’s a part of our family…and we think Beans agrees despite the few gray hairs Bindi gave him.
If they had a million dollars, your pup would:  Well, I’d like to believe that Beans & Bindi would spend some on treats and then give the rest to us as their caretakers but let’s be honest–they’d probably blow it all on snacks and boobie traps for all the people who are so rude as to step anywhere near their house.  I think they’d also build a giant bonfire with all the doggie costumes in the USA…they seem to look ashamed when we dress them up, ha ha!

Bindi, 1

If your dog could take a trip anywhere, they would go:  Anywhere with their family…pugs are sweet, contented little dogs and I think they are happy wherever there are people who love them.
Your pup’s favorite way to spend the dog days of summer:  They like to lounge outside under the tree in our backyard, sometimes swimming in their little pug pool and playing with their girls at the park!
Favorite author/artists/TV show:  They love Twins Baseball, Vikings Football, The Office, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and anything the girls are watching.
How would you describe Beans and Bindi’s personalities:  Bindi is a classic little sister.  She bugs Beans and gets jealous if he has something she doesn’t have.  We actually have a picture of Beans and Bindi when Bindi was tiny and Beans was 5; they were eating and Bindi was actually sitting in the food dish to block Beans from getting any.  She’s also kind of a clown.  One time we caught her starting to squat down to potty in the house and I chased her down the hallway–she skidded around the corner and shoved her face into her food dish as if to say “It wasn’t me, I was here eating the whole time!”  Beans is like a crabby old man sometimes.  There are certain neighbors that he likes and certain ones that really chap his buns…he will wag his tail at the ones he likes and growl and bark at the one he doesn’t like.  It doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense. They love baths, and their arch nemesis is my sister’s Boston Terrier Rocky (he has an attitude problem).  I would never have thought that dogs could have such personalities!  Pugs are awesome with kids, affectionate and funny little buddies.  I’d recommend this breed to anyone!
