Purdypug The Duchess
photo by: Alan Walker
I have owned severals breeds throughout the years but always admired Pugs. In 2011, I took home my foundation black bitch - Snugglepug Black On Top. From the moment she came home, Nancy ruled the roost (and still does to this day). Because of Nancy, I fell in love with the pugs and developed a new hobby - showing.
Nancy was lightly shown (due to work commitments) and was placed at open and championship level. In 2012, I brought home Claripugs Black Wizard aka Sonny Boy. Sonny Boy loves showing and has been very successful in the ring, gaining his Stud Book number by obtaining a RCC under black pug specialist, Mrs Anne Phillips (Jansclan).
In 2015, we bred a litter from Claripugs Black Wizard x Snugglepug Black On Top and kept Purdypug The General & Purdypug The Duchess. Both have inherited the best attributes of their parents and my partner and I was devastated when Reginald lost his eye due to an ulcer at 4 months old so he hasn't been shown. His sister, Elsabeth started her show career at the tail end of 2015 and has won Best Black in Show at Joint Pug Dog Club Championship Show 2016 under Black Pug Specialist Mrs Anne Phillips (Jansclan) & Mr Peter Saycell, Best Black in Show at West Pennines Pug Dog Club Championship Show 2016 under Black Pug Specialist, Mr Michael Quinney (Adoram) and RCC, Best Black in Show & Reserve Best in Show at the Pug Dog Club Championship Show 2016 under Mrs Gail Saffer (Ragemma) and Mrs Moira Cunningham (Moyard). At City of Birmingham Championship Show 2016, Elsabeth obtained CC under Ms Wendy Ansell (Myojo) then at Richmond Championship Show 2016 she received RCC under Mr Stuart Payne. At The Northern Pug Dog Club Championship Show 2016 she won Best Black in Show Under Pug Specialist Mrs Rosemary Alexander (Treveth) & Mr John Swinge (Balthazar)
