I am fairly independent (I have a ramp so that I can get up onto the bed on my own), but I include her in my activities from time to time. When I do doga, she does yoga. We also meditate together, read together, and enjoy intense, philosophical, spiritually-involved conversations. She also likes to manage my Instagram account, @oliverbeanthepom.
What a good question. She'd say no, but in reality, I do take issue with a lot of her actions. Sometimes she doesn't take my choice into account when choosing movies, sometimes she takes me on errands when I would really rather have some alone time, and sometimes she goes on "vacations" and leaves me behind. That last one could be considered morally reprehensible.
Smooth peanut butter. I like for it to be organic, but nicely mixed. I prefer that it be served on a small metal spoon (plastic ruins the taste). I can't quite explain how delicious it is. The texture is certainly singular. I have tried many brands (including homemade) and I consider myself a conoisseur. I also like feta cheese and fresh mozzarella.
I'm going to level with you—I hate baths. In fact, I'm a prominent figure in the Instagram movement #PomsAgainstBathtime. And I hate getting brushed. But because of my size, I am bullied into both. It is absolutely terrible. My Pom life hack for supreme fluffiness, though, is simply standing in the wind. Highly recommend.
Pomeranians are notoriously clever and stubborn—and I am no exception. This means that I know many tricks, but choose to perform only some of them at select times. I am particularly talented at sit, stay, and manipulate. The last one is self-taught.
