April 2021 News 

This year is going better for us as far as puppy production.  We've had two litters of six healthy puppies, so there are 12 happy new owners so far this year.  And we have just bred another girl.  I have opened up the waiting list for additions again, and it has become pretty long again.  But you're welcome to apply to be added if you are ready to wait for a puppy.  Several shows have finally been scheduled in MI, so we will be starting that again beginning the end of next month.  Unfortunately, at this time, they are still saying no spectators, only those entered in the show are being allowed in.  Hope everyone has a nice summer in spite of the remaining restrictions we must follow.

Show News


April 26 - Birch Run, MI - Faith wins Winner's Bitch, Best of Winners, Best of Opposite Sex, Best of Bred By Exhibitor and Group One Bred By Exhibitor for a 3 point major which makes her a NEW CHAMPION!  She is now officially Champion SnugglePugs Faith Everlasting.

Aug thru Sept.  We've gone to several shows and now have two girls almost finished, and Woody has 19 of his 25 Grand Champion points.  Our BIG show news is we attended the PDCA Nationals in Chattanooga the week of Sept. 15.  Our best wins were our little 5 mo. old SnugglePugs Patria (by Woody out of Ch. Why-Nonna) was BEST PUPPY of all the males and females in the 4-6 mos. Beginner Puppy class.  Then our SnugglePugs Faith Everlasting was WINNERS BITCH for a 5 point major!  We are so proud!  Brenda also showed friend Jackie's Krissy in the Open Fawn class and got 2nd, and our Rainy (Woody x Joy) got 5th of 13 in her class.  Woody was in the huge Best of Breed class and showed nicely but no award.  We have a few more shows to go to so we're hoping to finish the girls.
