Doug the Pug, a popular dog that has no idea it's famous, will be visiting Orlando next week for a complimentary meet-and-greet. 

On Wednesday, Dec. 9, Doug fans can "mug" with the pug, aka snap a photo with the smushy faced animal, and also listen to Doug's favorite tunes. 

The event will be held in the lobby of the Hard Rock Hotel from 2-3 p.m. Free tickets are available on a first come first serve basis. 

Doug currently has over  3.1 million likes on Facebook and over 1 million followers on Instagram. 

I wish these were real tv shows
