Meet Our Patriotic Pets: Muneca

Last month, we introduced Freshpet TV celebrity Beacon, the Boston Terrier. He was a rambunctious pup with a huge heart and was a blast to have on set.

But lovable fur-kids come in all different shapes and sizes. That being said, we couldn’t wait to introduce the beautiful Muneca, an elegant Weimaraner with gorgeous blue eyes. Let’s just say she turned heads when filming!

 

Mom’s Name: Alexandra

Trainer’s Name: Kevin and Alexandra

Breed: Weimaraner

Age: 3

Where She Lives: Linden, NJ

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How did you end up in Alexandra’s family? Well, I’m actually from Bogota, Colombia originally – muy bueno! My name, Muneca, is Spanish for “doll.” My Mom said she named me that because she thinks I’m pretty! Alexandra and Kevin adopted me when I was a puppy and brought me back to the States. It’s been amazing being part of such a loving family.

What Kind of Pup Were You? I think we all realized early on that I had Weimaraner hunting instincts. When Mom brought me to the lake for the first time, I was terrified to go in the water. I’d never swam before and it looked so scary. I wouldn’t even go fetch my favorite ball in that lake. But then I spotted some geese and when they fled to the water, I dove right in after them. I’ve been chasing balls into the water ever since!

Where Do You Sleep At Home? Lucky for me, I have two beds. Things are pretty comfortable at home. One bed is upstairs and the other downstairs. On chilly nights, Mom even gives me a blanket to snuggle under. Girl’s got to have her beauty sleep, right?

You Were Pretty Comfortable In Front of the Camera. Have You Done This Before? Don’t make me blush! I have done this a few times actually. Mom helped me get a part in a Mercedes-Benz commercial. I’ve also been featured on Gilt.com and worked with Nordstrom. But this Freshpet commercial was my favorite because I love their food, it’s the best! Plus I can’t drive a car so Mercedes was different :)

What’s A Typical Day Like? I wake up early and fly down the stairs to chow down on my Freshpet. After I’ve stuffed myself, a quick nap ties me over until the rest of the family is awake. Mom takes me for a morning walk and then we play Frisbee – I love the Frisbee! It helps me stay in shape. While everyone is working, I wait by the door for them to get back and play with me. When they come home I wag my tail like you wouldn’t believe!

Behind the Scenes of the Freshpet Commercial

This week’s blog post is written by Cari, Freshpet Intern:

Freshpet Commercial ShootHi I’m Cari and over the last couple of months I have been interning with Freshpet in their marketing department. I’m from Arizona and I have always been a pet lover, so I was excited when I was invited to work for Freshpet over the summer. I had the privilege to attend the new commercial shoot. The whole thing was definitely an eye opener for me. I never knew how much effort and time it took to create a short 30 second commercial! So many people were on the set, including the film crew, trainers, pet owners, and dogs. They made an awesome team and all knew exactly what they were doing. I could tell they were definitely professionals, and the dogs were so well trained. I had a great time with everyone, and I learned so much. Although I must say, the highlight of my day would have to be when I got to hold all of the adorable puppies. They were so tuckered out by the end of the day, they were practically falling asleep in my arms. Overall, I had a fantastic day and it was fun meeting everyone. Thanks for the great experience Freshpet!
