It’s true Schlitterbahn already has an official mascot, Schatze. However, let me be the first to introduce you to the real dogs of Schlitterbahn, Elliott and Riggs. As far as our New Braunfels staff is concerned, these two pugs are just as recognizable as Schatze. They sometimes make cameo appearances on our Facebook post. They like to check in on lifeguard classes, stop by corporate and say hi and of course hang out at the park once we’ve closed.

Once Schlitterbahn New Braunfels closes its’ doors at the end of the season it’s time for us full time employees to bring our furry friends to work!

Well, maybe just me…

So with out further ado let me introduce you to Schlitterbahn New Braunfels two most lovable furry friends.

Elliott was born a Los Angeles, California pug, but was more than happy to relocate in New Braunfels, Texas. His favorite activities include sun bathing, snuggling, and exploring the tube chutes at the park. Elliott has a quirky personality, which when most people meet him say that he reminds them of a human. He is often mistaken for Frank, the pug in Men in Black. His favorite food is french fries, just like his mom.

Riggs was adopted a year ago from Austin Pug Rescue and he’s really enjoying his new home. Riggs is high energy and loves, LOVES chewing on raw hides. He often finishes his first and then moves on to finish Elliott’s as well. He likes to snuggle, but only for a little bit. Riggs has more of a “go it alone” attitude. If you drive through Landa Park in the evening you’ll probably see Riggs and I walking. ¬†Elliott, on the other hand, isn’t much for long walks.

Stay tuned for more on what life is like as a SchlitterPug.
