Ramsey and Pablo (and Suvi) fans are everywhere!

Getting ready to leave a restaurant after lunch a few weeks ago, we were approached by a Ramsey and Pablo fan - she recognized us both from Facebook, and stopped over to say hi and show us her dogs! She had her 11-year-old chihuahua siblings in a carrying bag, and they were ADORABLE.

We left the restaurant, and I was in shock. Did we just get recognized from the internet?!
I expected Chad wouldn't even be phased by this, but he was in awe too. I suppose it happens every now and then - R & P fans are all over the world!

This wasn't the first time I'd met a fan though...and my favorite R & P story is this one:

About 3 months into dating Chad, I went back to my college town to visit my cousin and some friends. My cousin Christina was telling me about her new boyfriend, when her sister piped in and told her to ask me about my new crazy dog guy. I gave her the scoop about Chad (without yet mentioning his name), and how we shared this "crazy" love of dogs. I told her all about the doberman and chihuahua, how we were introducing them to Suvi, and how amazing their interactions together were - in fact, so incredible that they had a YouTube fan base. Christina cut me off mid-sentence, "Wait, you're dating CHAD DRESSEN?!?"

Wowzers. My cousins live in the U.P. of Michigan. I hadn't given her his first name, and don't know that I even mentioned Ramsey and Pablo's names. She's a dog lover, but this felt insane - she knew as much about my boyfriend as I did. In fact, she'd probably known his name well before I'd ever met him!

I love how passionate dog people are about their dogs, and how we all love to share photos, stories, and our pooches with one another. I hope to meet many more of the dogs' fans someday!

I brought Christina an "I <3 Ramsey and Pablo" mug the next time I saw her!

    1. Hi! Suvi is a Finnish girl name, and it means summer (though that isn't why I picked it). There's a little more about the reason behind the name in this post: http://puppymomma.blogspot.com/p/behind-other-camera.html

      Thanks!

  3. Hey cuz! Loved being a feature for one of your blogposts. :]
    My heart broke when my "I <3 ramsey and pablo" mug met its demise a few months ago...it was a hectic game day for marching band and broke into pieces when i dropped my backpack. Someday I'll buy another one...but it won't be as special as yours!
    love, nina!

  4. I'm from South Africa and I just love your 3 babies, I came across Pablo first, while just searching YouTube for chihuahua's and chugs - warms my heart to know there are so many others who care about their dogs, and make them a part of the family, as I do with mine :)
