Last week Jeff drove (HARD) to Michigan to attend the last couple of days of the Pug Dog Club of America nationals. He zoomed me and I got to watch, along with some other pug breeders who joined our zoom meeting (from Russia, Serbia, and other states in the US). It was such fun, albeit a bit of a poor Wifi reception so some of the video was choppy. Still, it was the next best thing to being there.
The BEST part, though, is that upon Jeff's return to Alabama he brought a new puppy with him to join our grumble and be out next show boy and hopeful stud one day assuming he grows out as we hope and passes his health tests.
Meet Wright's Triumphant Tiger Eye at Pickwick! (Call name = Parker). He is beautiful inside and out ... and has such an amazing, sweet temperament. He's smart, too! Thank you Linda Wright and Carol Zmuda for entrusting us with this exceptional pug. We are smitten to the core.
Today I ran across a post on the Puppy Culture Facebook Discussion Group page by the mom of a Pickwick puppy from our Diamond litter. She is also a vet tech and has owned pugs and animals etc. all her life. It was such wonderful news to hear that the litterbox training we did transitioned so well to house breaking. Thank you Jane for all the amazing resources you give us as breeders, dog owners, dog trainers, and people who want to see our puppies thrive throughout their lifetime! (Apologies in advance for the less than appealing photograph material ;) lolz)
And here's the happy response from a Pickwick pug puppy owner . . . .
