It’s the National Puppy Day we all need right now. Meet the BFFs to some of your Aerie fam, and share your fur kids with us on social with #AerieREAL @Aerie!

The name Mischa means “little bear” in Russia. Though typically a boy’s name, I thought she looked like a small bear when I adopted her. Her middle name is Scully for Agent Scully on the X-files, which is my favorite show of all time (nerd alert!).

If your dog had a motto, what would it be?

Mischa: “Are you going to finish that?” or “Get in where you fit in.”

What’s the cutest thing your dog does?

J’Lea: When she’s really excited, her bark sounds like she’s trying to sing to you. Generally, this happens around feeding time but she’s also been known to harmonize with Beyoncé. Also, she has a great underbite!

What makes your dog #AerieREAL?

J’Lea: She knows her limits and is very independent. For example, she regularly goes to bed before we do because when she’s ready she doesn’t wait for the OK from us! Also, that doesn’t JUST pertain to bedtime, it’s with everything she does 🙃

When is your dog at her happiest?

J’Lea: She is at her happiest when curled up on my lap after a long day of hiking! She’s an outdoorsy girl.

If your dog had a motto, what would it be?

Chris: She would say, “I will do anything for a treat!”

What’s the cutest thing your dog does?

Chris: Bella smiles showing off all of her pearly whites.

When is your dog at her happiest?

Chris: Bella is happiest when she is together with her two dads!

What makes your dog #AerieREAL?

Chris: Bella is loud, proud and wants to be known by all. After being rescued at an early age Bella has taken her second opportunity at life to love all and insure everyone smiles, has daily treats and is appreciated as much as her.

If your dog had a motto, what would it be?

Taylor: I think Coco would have a few different mottos. First, “All I need in this life are endless belly rubs.” Now that she’s getting older, she loves to sleep. Her favorite napping spot is the couch. So another motto she might have is “Okay, I’m going to bed now” (even if she’s been sleeping all day).

What’s the cutest thing your dog does?

Taylor: Coco LOVES the snow. When she’s outside in the snow, she kind of hops around like a bunny and snow flies everywhere. She also does this thing where she likes to bury her face in the snow and then she looks up at you and has snow all over her face. It’s super cute.

Another cute thing she does—Coco is a lapdog and loves to cuddle. Sometimes, when she is laying on my lap or stomach, she’ll tap me to get my attention until I look at her. It’s so funny and so cute. Sometimes she wants my attention so that I give her a belly rub or to pet her head. Other times, she just wants me to look at her. But it’s just funny that she knows to tap my arm to get my attention. She’s a smart pup!

When is your dog at her happiest?

Taylor: Coco is her happiest when she’s hanging out outside. She loves to just lay on the porch and enjoy the sounds of the outdoors. She likes to play and run too, but since she’s gotten older, she really enjoys just relaxing outside.

If your dog had a motto, what would it be? 

Benjamin: “Give me your food or I’ll show you my big cute puppy dog eyes!”

What’s the cutest thing your dog does? 

Matt: Either when he snores like a human, or when he gets the zoomies and does laps around the coffee table.

When is your dog at his happiest? 

Matt: When I come home, he wiggles his whole body with excitement!

Named for Frank Ocean and Frankie’s in Brooklyn where her doggy dad & I had our first date.

If your dog had a motto, what would it be?

Frankie: “Please never leave me.”

What’s the cutest thing your dog does?

Laura: When she’s really excited, she does this thing where she walks in front of you, halfway turned around to look at you (she’s very long and wiggly), wagging her tail so much that she hits herself in the face with it over and over again. She also makes a squinty face when she does it (because of the wagging her tail in her own face). It is THE cutest thing ever.

When is your dog at her happiest?

Laura: In a big backyard on a sunny day with a rope toy. Or in a bed.

What makes your dog #AerieREAL?

Laura: She doesn’t take any BS. She’s the police officer of the dog park and keeps everyone in line. She stayed 1 time in her crate the first time we left her alone, then broke free every other time until we threw the crate away. She doesn’t put up with any nonsense. I try to be more like her each and every day.

We could all use more puppy pics right now! Share yours on social with #AerieREAL @Aerie & tell us why you love your pups.
