Green Pug Video is a Must See

If you haven’t seen Puglet, you’re missing what could be the best three minutes of your day.

Two-year-old Puglet and his owner Amanda live in San Francisco. As a dog photographer, Amanda wanted to make a green video inspired by Puglet’s mission for dog adoption, or as she calls it “recycled dogs.”

“I think a lot of people are intimidated by the whole green thing, like you have to do all the right things, [such as] drive the right car and buy $12 organic asparagus to make a difference,” Amanda says. “I thought Puglet could make green more accessible – show how easy being green can be. So easy, even a pug can do it!”

Puglet is the ultimate mascot for going green – you can’t help but fall in love with his scrunched face and beaming wide eyes. Considering that Amanda herself isn’t a dog trainer, it seems that Puglet’s eco habits are almost innate.

“Puglet does most of the work. I just point at stuff and give him Pirates Booty,” Amanda explains. “He learned most of it on the spot in a few minutes when the camera was rolling (much to my horror, he attracted a large crowd in Home Depot’s lighting department). The recycling sorting took the longest because I taught him paper, plastic and cans. Cans got cut – thought it was overkill. The cow scene was tricky because Puglet kept eating the carrot. And broccoli. And cucumber. He really does like veggies!”

        Yup. Green is so easy, even an ordinary Pug like me can do it. I hope my video inspires lots of able-thumbed humans to take action:)
