  • Easy way to add a touch of fashion to any celebration or doggie outing.

Sorry about the blurry picture but we wanted to show you

Beginner Novice Video!


Good Monday Morning Furiends!

We have a video to share with you today
My class instructor took this the day I completed my
 Beginner Novice Obedience Title

First we will give you a run down
 on what we have to do to earn this title

1. Heeling Pattern - will include a fast, slow, turns and halt with automatic sit. The signs tell us which to do

2. Figure Eight - we must do a figure eight pattern around two people with two halts at judges command. Automatic sits are expected with each halt. 

3. Sit for Exam - a sit stay while mom at end of leash and judge walks up and touches head. Must stay until mom returns to heel position

4. Sit Stay -  must stay in sit stay while mom walks around the perimeter of the ring and returns

5. Recall - Stay until called - sit in front not required but must stop close enough for mom to be able to touch me. 

We start with 200 points. Points are deducted for tight leash, poor/no sits, extra commands, excessive sniffing, poor teamwork. Breaking stay, not coming on command will disqualify you. You must get at least 170 pts. to qualify. Three qualifying scores earn that the title.  

I got my first two "legs" last year. We tried to finish the title once in March and twice in June. Twice I broke my stay and the third time I did not come close enough to mom on the recall. So we worked a lot on those two things in preparation for this trial in August. 

I qualified and finished the title with a score of 190.5!  


You will hear the voice of our instructor later in the video

Angel Greta's 5th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Button Giveaway


Hi Friends - Angel Greta here!



In 2013 Mom & I had a special button giveaway for
 Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It was such a great success we wanted to do it again

Despite my unexpected departure for the Rainbow Bridge in 2014
we have continued our special giveaway
 because I let Mom know that I am always here 
- in her heart - 


and we would still do this together

You see 
my Mom is celebrating 6 years as a Breast Cancer Survivor

 I came into Mom's life just a few months 
after she completed her radiation treatments
 and I was an important part of her overall recovery. 

Now each October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
I always like to share 
my story of .....


How I Became Mom's "Pink" Dog
by Angel Greta
Mom has NEVER liked the coloPINK
her favorite colors are green and purple
but...

 you may have noticed that I
wore a lot of PINK


Six years ago something happened
 

After having her yearly check up
Mom was told she needed a biopsy


Two days before the start of
Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Mom was told she had breast cancer

Then not only did she not like PINK
she HATED PINK
Trying to come to terms with the Big C diagnoses
and PINK was in her face everywhere she went.
Surgery was scheduled and followed soon after
 by 6 weeks of radiation treatments



It was then that Mom began to realize
just how lucky she was

 She does her wellness check ups every year
 so her cancer was caught early

 She has a family that loves her and needs her
and she will be here for them

for a long time to come


  Mom realized that during
 Breast Cancer Awareness Month
she can let people know that
early detection saves lives 

so she decided
 to embrace the colo"PINK"


 and that, my friends


 is how I became Mom's "Pink" dog.


Dear Furiends!


 Please make sure your loved ones educate themselves about the risks of breast cancer and the importance of mammograms if they are over 40, earlier if there is a history of breast cancer in the family.
Early detection can make such a difference! 
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
we are once again having a little giveaway!

From the Café Press Shop of

we have
 Pug w/pink ribbon mini buttons  
(1” diameter) to send out to our friends


They look great on a blouse, lapel,
 or pinned on a hat (that’s where Mom’s human son wore his).
Maybe you want to show support for someone close to you that is battling this disease,honor a loved one 
or just want to help spread awareness. 
Maybe your peep is a survivor like our MOM.
  We need our peeps to take care of themselves
so they can take care of us!
Those of you that received a button in the past, 
we hope you are wearing it proudly!


If you would like a button
 send us an email with your snail mail addy to
pugranch2 AT msn DOT com
We will send the buttons anywhere in the world!

 We have 20 buttons to give away!

Promoting Breast Cancer Awareness
 has truly become Angel Greta's legacy of love



love

Angel Greta & Mom
