  • News from the showring

What a FANTASTIC weekend!! This weekend we were on a national Dogshow on Stord here in Hordaland. We was only showing three of our pugs, the puppies: Snowpug`s Addis Black Sorrow, Snowpug`s Alice Deejay and Borzan`s Black Tequila Girl.

Our puppy buyer - Gunnvor from Voss came to this dogshow with Snowpug`s Alexander O`Neal. I have not seen him since he left our home in May - but when I saw him yesterday I saw who he was before I looked up and saw his owners. It was a big joy and pleasure to meet this handsome gentleman again - and what a MAN!! We could see so much of his father in his head - but Stanley (as they call him) has smaller eyes. He has a great body, tailset, movements, head/ears and bones and a beutiful colour - and I have to say that his temperament was very good. I`m really looking forward to follow this handsome man in the future! (picture of him will come). I have to congratulate Gunnvor with her and Stanley`s debute in the showring - you were so clever and I`m so PROUD of both of you!!!

So - we were showping our puppies and Gunnvor was showing Stanley. This was the results:

***Borzan`s Black Teqila Girl - 2nd. Best female puppy. The judge liked our black pearl very much and he said and wrote very much positive things about her. But to day on this dogshow this wasn`t her "day".

***Snowpug`s Alexander O`Neal - 2nd. Best male puppy. Stanley get very much good words from the judge. He said that he had marvelous movements, temperament, size and body. And of course I was happy to hear all the good things he said about him. (I will lay out the things the judge wrote another time)

***Snowpug`s Addis Black Sorrow - Best male and Best of Opposite Sex Puppy (BOS).

***Snowpug`s Alice Deejay - Best female and Best Of Breed Puppy (BOB)

When Teodor and Anna get BOS and BOB I hardly could belive it. I can`t say enough how proud I am over the kind words the judges has said about the puppies frome our A-litter. Since this is the first litter of mine - its important for me to hear what different judges has to say about the puppies. Not only the two puppies I have in my home - but also the three other ones. All the judges who has seen the puppies from our A-litter has said a lot of positive things about them, such as - good bones, good coat and colour, very good temperament, good heads and expression, good movements.

This was the last time these pugs was shown as puppies - next time in 2008 they all are Junior`s - and I`m looking forward to see how they will react when they are enetering the adult-showring. The time when they have been puppies has been joyful and I have been learning a lot of them - now we are looking forward to see how they will develop and grow.

I`m sending a big thanks to all of my puppy-buyers - you are taking so good care of your Snowpug`s babies

Is it realy true? Our little black pearl - Borzan`s Black Tequila Girl - did it today again Best of Opposite Sex Puppy (BOS). Judge Arne Foss liked our little princess very much and said she was of excellent quality!!! I`m so proud of her. This was her second dogshow and she take the showring with storm!!

Our little gentleman - Snowpug`s Addis Black Sorrow - was so tired after the hard yesterday - so he wanted just to relax. But the judge liked him very, very much - he said to everyone in the ring: "Look at this face, its just amayzing how precious he is. He has realy charmed me - just look at him!". But unfortunally since our boy was so tired Arne Foss couldn`t place him at nr. 1 best male. He said that he realy today was a star - and he could develop and grow to be a much more handsom gentleman.As a breeder I think this is good to hear - and I took this kind words with me.

Our female - Snowpug`s Alice Deejay - was placed as 2nd. best female puppy. My son, Tor-Gunnar, was handling her and she has SO MUCH ENERGY!!! She was jumping and running - the judge couldn`t do anything else than laugh

Teodor and Anna`s mother - Pugbully Joan Baez - was placed as 1st.AK, 2nd.AKK. Sarah have to get a weight-loss, because she has been to fat for so long now. But it isn`t so easy to do this becuase she is a maniac after food....

29. September 2007:

*** Snowpug`s Addis Black Sorrow - Best Of Breed Puppy (BOB). Thank you so much judge, Runde Lysgaard, for that you like my handsome boy so much We were not waiting for the finale because we had to wait 5 hours before it should began The dogs were so tired so I decided to leave the show.

*** Borzan`s Black Tequila Girl - Best of Opposite Sex Puppy (BOS). I was so proud when the judge, Rune Lysgaard, picked out my little black pearl to the best puppy bitch I was so proud of "Mandy" - this was her first dogshow and she were doing it SO well. She was so calm and quiet and she was doing her work so good.

*** Snowpug`s Alice Deejay - 2nd. best female puppy.

*** Pugbully Joan Baez - 1st.AK, 2nd.AKK

This is a sad day in our kennel This afternoon the smallest boy - "Lillemann" - was taking his last breath, he was so small and tiny. I`ve tried all the things that could bee done in such a situation - but his life couldnt be saved. It`s very sad - but we are comforting us selves that he`s okey where he now is - and that he`s in animalheaven... Rest in peace my prescious little angel - your time on this earth was very short - we will keep your spirit in our soul and heart...

Now we have to consentrate us about the rest of the puppies. We have 6 beautiful and healthy babies wich are very strong and in full activity. On this 4 days they has grown a lot - we can see differenses frome day to day.

Denise is a wonderful mother and she is so kind and clever with her babies.

16. August 2007:

This night Denise (Troppola Dark Denise) gave born to 7 pug-puppies. The first puppy were born at 00.55 and the last at 03.20. She were so clever and the puppies come out of her very lightly. Now we just hope that they all will survey - because two of the babies are very small and tiny and I`m afraid that it wouldnt go fine with them. But the time will show - and I`m crossing my fingers for them all!! I will lay out puppy pictures after a littlke while. Now I`m very tired after a whole night awake with my clever bitch Denise - but thats life I can sleep an another time.....

All the puppies are spoken for.
