Happy Birthday Dad!

I'm a daddy's girl, through and through. If you need to find me, I'll usually be sitting upside down on dad's lap. Mom does agility with me, but dad plays fetch, tug, and "run through the house like maniacs" with me.

Here's to dad, on his birthday!!!

Sad times right now

We're a little sad at our house right now. 
Mom had to put Levi to sleep last week. 
His little body just couldn't fight any longer. 
He was almost 14 years old, which is a good, long life. 
But it's just not long enough...

Here's some memories of Levi that mom wanted me to share with you all. 

Picking Levi up at the airport. He arrived full of kisses and love, right out of the gate.

Levi at his first agility demo. He was 6 months old, and already rocking the course.

Levi learning the agility equipment. 
He was an agility superstar for sure, and has been some big paws to fill.

Levi playing with his fuzzy.

Levi at one of his photoshoots. 
He was a trooper, standing in the cold and snow for hours, never getting out of "character".

Levi at the ocean, next to his new friend the starfish. 
He loved to hike and camp.

Levi last October, on his 13th birthday. 

Mom will miss her little guy. 
He was her agility partner for many years, 
and was always ready, willing
and able to do whatever she asked. 

See you at the Bridge, big brother.

Blast from the Pug Agility Past

The Pug Dog Club of America's National Specialty 
Agility Trial is coming soon. 
It's October 17, and I'm going with mom to San Jose. 
Mom found these photos of the very first PDCA Trial, 
that was in Olympia, WA in 2004. 

She's put them up here for your viewing pleasure. 
Sadly, a few of these Pugs are no longer with us, 
and most are long retired. 

But the Pugs who showed that 1st year were the pioneers, 
showing in agility when very few Pugs were competing. 

Now, all these years later, Pugs are going strong in agility.
