Now let's meet Molly's pawrent, Emma Trueman

Tell me about yourself, outside of your passion for animals, such as your family, hobbies and interests.  

I am married with four doggies!!! I come from a large family and I have lived in Birmingham in the UK for about 10 years now.  I am in my later thirties (39) I like to walk my doggies, I knit and twitter!!!!

What type of work do you do? 

I don't work. My husband has his own company

Are you an outdoor person, or an indoor person, and why? 

I am a bit of both. We don't have the greatest weather in the UK so definitely more outdoors in the summer and I like being indoors as well.

What is your favorite book, favorite author? 

My favourite book is Small Sacrifices by Ann Rule

What TV shows do you enjoy? 

I love crime programmes. My favourite is Criminal Minds, CSI, and Law & Order (all american!!!!), The X Factor and American Idol

What type of music do you enjoy? What is your favorite song?  

I like many types of different music. I am a big Celine Dion fan. My favourite song is My heart will go on from the Titanic movie

Do you travel? What is the most memorable vacation you’ve ever taken? 

We do travel but mostly around UK because of the dogs. The most memorable has been to Scotland about 8 years ago. It was the first time I'd been away with my now husband and it was very special

Tell me about your town and what makes it special to you. 

Birmingham is a big city and has everything you can think of.  I like the diversity it offers. We actually live just outside in a little town but its nice and friendly although as I write this we are thinking of relocating to America!

Have you ever traveled with your pet? If so, please give me an adventure story. 

We bought a caravan specifically for the dogs so we could travel with them and have holidays with them all our holidays are engineered around the dogs they love it!

Tell me about your first pet, and how many have you had in your lifetime?  

My first pet was German Shepherd called Mackie. He was the loveliest dog and I still miss him even today we've had seven dogs altogether

Why did you choose Molly to Tweet for instead of another pet? 

I chose Molly originally because she has the most "getting into trouble" character and on twitter you know your dogs personality and what they are like!

Do you have other Twitter accounts? 

Yes mine (@suki3010) Molly, Jack (@jackchidoggy) Suki (@sukidoggy) and Jess (@jessthespringy)

What is a typical day for you, starting when your pets want breakfast? 

Get up about 8am, feed the dogs, walk the dogs, come back do housework and go on twitter of course. Then Jess has two walks a day so take her out again, get dinner ready. Then hubby comes home. Then the dogs have an hours playtime in the evening and twitter again!

Now let's meet Katie's pawrent, LARA

Tell me about yourself, outside of your passion for animals, such as your family, hobbies and interests.

I love to read and spend time with my family and friends socialising and just enjoying myself. I love to eat out, theatre, cinema and live music.  I also like to volunteer for animal charities.

What type of work do you do?

I am a Concious Contentment Coach and I also have a day job as a critical incident training manager.

Are you an outdoor person, or an indoor person, and why?

Both, I love spending time in the great outdoors but I also love snuggling up with a good book or film

Do you blog or Facebook? Tell me about it and give addresses.

Yes I have blog http://fairygodmotheracademy.wordpress.com/ and facebook page

What is your favorite book, favorite author?

The Gardener - Grian and I love to read all sorts of novels crime, thriller and chick lit.

What TV shows do you enjoy?

I really like any escapism so at the moment I am loving Grimm and Once Upon a Time.

What type of music do you enjoy? What is your favorite song?

I like most music, less keen on Jazz and really hardcore rave type music. Favourite song at the moment is Paradise by Coldplay.

Do you travel? What is the most memorable vacation you’ve ever taken?

I love to travel and my trip to New York, Las Vegas and San Francisco in 2010 was so amazing I am returning to New York this November.

Tell me about your town and what makes it special to you.

I live in a place called the Wirral, which is a peninsuala so it has water on 3 sides of it which is great for taking the pooches to the beach. Its in a great part of the UK as it is not too far to travel anywhere in the UK, plus I have Liverpool, Chester and Manchester within a short drive for fab shopping and socialising.

Have you ever traveled with your pet? If so, please give me an adventure story.

We try to take the pooches for at least one holiday a year mostly in Scotland or the Lake District, they love to explore and play with the waves on the beaches in Scotland and Katie loves exploring in the rocky areas, she loves to climb and is like a little mountain goat so we have to be very careful not to let her adventure too far.

Tell me about your first pet, and how many have you had in your lifetime?

My first pet was a little black mixed breed dog called Bess, she was also a rescue dog and she was lovely. She looked like a little bat. Other than the pets I have now the only other pet I have had was a Bunny called Rambo, who started his life called Fluff but was so vicious he had to have his name changed.

Do you have other Twitter accounts?

Yes I have @tinker0159 for personal tweets, @fgacreations for my business and @millymopmoo for Lola 

What is a typical day for you, starting when your girls want breakfast?

I start the day at about 6am seeing to the pooches who pretty much stay in bed. Go to work, when I arrive home I play with them for a bit, feed them and give them their medication, have dinner, take them for a walk, then either see my boyfriend or friends or if I am staying home I will go on twitter and maybe watch some TV or read a book.  Then at bedtime I try to settle Katie down but usually prepare to be woken up between 3 and 6 times in the night because she doesn't like to sleep! But I love her so I don't mind.

Is there anything you’d like to tell us about you that I didn’t know to ask?

Wow I think you know lots about us now, so not really. If anybody wants to know more they  now have so many ways to contact us they can feel free to do so. 

Excellent intermews ladies! So nice to have you grace my humble blog.
 


Don't Mess Wif Me!
