What an amazing week spent at the PDCA Nationals in Indianapolis filled with conformation shows, rally obedience trials and seminars, tricks titles, and workshops on pug health, nutrition, and training. We met all sorts of pug folks from across the country (and some other countries as well) involved in conformation, rescue, agility, obedience, barn hunt, scent work, dock diving, and just plain "pug loving"! Our Champion Peachtree's Kirkcudbright Kayleigh (KK) earned a high score of 97 in the Novice Rally Obedience trial!
KK also enjoyed the hotel. Here she is waiting patiently outside the restaurant while I picked up the dinner. (I told her to stay and be quiet. She was trying to camouflage herself behind the sign!)
Our pug Sebastian B.G.R., CGC, RN, RA, TKN (who is not part of our breeding program but one of the smartest pugs we've ever owned!) participated in an amazing Rally Obedience seminar,
Our new 4.5 month puppy, Zobear's American Idol, (Annie) did so well in the 4-6 Puppy Class!
Our Champion Pickwick's Peachtree Hill Country Mighty Macintosh enjoyed participating in an Exhibition Match as well as earned his Novice Trick Title.
The drive was long but we made it home safely, filled with all sorts of new knowledge regarding pug health, training, and lots of ribbons, titles, and fun memories! Here is Macintosh and Annie en route back from the conference.
