Meet Norm, the Personality-Filled Pug

In the latest issue of Ludique Magazine, the online publication all about mobile photography, you’ll find a great little story about one of the most personality-filled pugs you’ll ever come across. Seattle-based Jeremy Veach has been the proud owner of Norm, his four-legged friend, since the pup was just 8 weeks old (he’s now 1 1/2). Soon after Jeremy got him, he started taking photos of the photogenic dog, inspired by some canine favorites like good ‘ol Maddie, and began posting them on Instagram. (Jermzlee now has almost 24,000 followers.)

Most hilarious are the “selfies” where it looks like Norm is taking a picture of himself. All in all, we can appreciate how owner Jeremy always changes things up, adding funny captions and even posing with Norm in a few of the shots.

“He loves the pictures and gets really into it,” Jeremy told Ludique. “And when there is something he doesn’t like, I can tell, and I just will move on to a new idea.”

Now here are some of our favorite shots.

Love at first chew.
