When I’m sad I usually do one of two things: watch my favorite KPOP band BTS on YouTube OR watch puppy videos. Without fail, these two things cheer me up even if it’s just for a little bit. You can’t be mad at a puppy (or some talented stars!). Some of my favorite puppies are the tiny ones that look like stuffed animals. You’ve got your usual suspects: Goldens (Doodles or Retrievers), Pomeranians, Bichon Frises, or Teacup anything! When you can get your Poodle in mini, you’re definitely in for a treat.

Mr. Paddington Bear Jr. the pup just started on Instagram this summer. He already has almost 13 thousand followers and when looking at his feed, it becomes obvious why! He’s a Poodle and Cavalier mix and that just means he’s extra fluffy with floppy ears! I personally fell in love with him when he dressed up as a Minion for his first Halloween.

I just had to know more about this pupper, so we reached out to his mom to learn more!

Q. How did you choose Paddington? What made you select his name? It’s so cute!

Jennifer: I chose Paddington because he was the shyest and quietest pup of the litter. Little did I know, his personality would turn out to be completely different from that initial impression. I also loved his light brown coloring and expressive eyes.

As soon as I saw Paddington, I thought that he looked just like a little stuffed bear. I liked the name Paddington prior to meeting him but upon seeing him, I knew that it was the perfect name for him. Although everyone else thought that the name was a little too long, I really loved that it was unique and decided to go with it.

Good choice! 👍🏼

What kind of personality does he have? Do you have a favorite story from his younger-puppy days?

Jennifer: Paddington is an extremely adventurous pup with endless amounts of energy. He loves to be involved with all of the activities that are going on around him and is always looking for his next adventure. He is truly fearless – he likes scaling all surfaces, enjoys aquatic activities, and playing in the snow. Paddington also loves meeting new people and is a very friendly pup.

It’s hard to pick one particular story because there is a new funny story with Paddington every day. One of my favorites would be when he decided to climb the windshield of our boat at 35 mph. I was holding onto his leash on the bow of the boat and he decided to hop up on the windshield and ride for awhile, taking in all of the fresh air. Watching him climb the windshield and ride up there was hilarious and just one example of Paddington’s adventurous personality.

What’s your favorite thing to do with Paddington?

Jennifer: I honestly enjoy doing just about everything with Paddington. He is so much fun and it is great to see him enjoy life and live it to the fullest. In the summer, one of my favorite things to do with Paddington is enjoy the water. He seems to really like joining me on the paddle board, kayak, or boat. He’s a happy pup when he feels the wind in his fur and is taking in all of the scenery.

We know Paddington recently became yours, but do you have an itch for another dog?

Jennifer: Right now, I have my hands full with Paddington and all of his adventures so I’m not itching to get another dog quite yet. My sister also has a Cavapoo, Quincy, who he gets to see a few times a year and they enjoy spending time together. I’ll likely consider getting another pup in the future but that would definitely be a couple of years down the road. I’m sure Paddington would love having a full-time playmate.

What has been your experience being part of the online dog community? Did you expect to gain so many followers so quickly?

Just look at this goofy goober – how could you not fall in love?

Jennifer: Being a part of the online dog community has been so positive and a ton of fun. I’ve met so many new people and made a lot of friends that I never would have encountered had it not been for this community. Seeing pictures of other pups and some of the creative ideas that their owners have is always fun. Plus, I love being able to connect with other dog owners from all over the country and internationally.

I never predicted that Paddington would gain so many followers and especially so quickly. I’ve always enjoyed taking pictures of my sister’s dog, Quincy, and started an account for him. Naturally, when I got Paddington I started an account for him as a place to share his pictures with others, but I never imagined that his account would gain the following that it has. I’m having so much fun sharing his adventures with everyone and feel so lucky to have the following that we do.

We love Paddington so much more after learning more about him. Here are more adorable photos!

The photo that stole my heart – Minion Paddington! He looked so adorable for his first Halloween, we can’t wait to see what he’ll be next year!

Puppies have a tough life. It gets tiring when you have all this energy, but a little body. Paddington probably did too many zoomies and had to take a break on this tiny camp chair!

“Mom, I know I’m tiny, but I would feel safer if you held me with both hands!”

The look of disapproval is strong with this puppy, but it’s okay, he was free to smell the roses as soon as Jennifer got the shot!

“Mom! Mom! Mom! Look where I am! What exactly is this anyways? When’s the doctor coming back? Is he coming back with treats?”

Little does Paddington know, he just might get more than treats – lots of pats from the vet are coming!

There’s also something else super adorable about this already too cute for words puppy – he loves wearing bow ties! Might we say he looks exceptionally dashing!

Black tie event? No problem. Paddington has all the right outfits for any event. He just hasn’t realized that “dogtails” don’t really exist and he can’t exactly have cocktails.

Like any insta pup, Paddinton’s dabbled in the local coffee scene. But no caffeine for him – it would make his zoomies EXTRA zoomies. Paddinton is actually more interested in the matching bandana.
