Planned Breeding

Well, my dear little Tiggy aka Arvay's Lonestar To Treasure has come into season. She's never been bred so we are excited about the prospect of her having puppies. Tiggy spent a lot of time out at the shows earning points towards her AKC championship. We tried for a very long time to snag one last major (3 point win) for her so she could finish her championship, but it just wasn't in the cards. Tiggy is a small, cobby little bitch that can be a little naughty at times in the ring. On many occasions the judge would come up to her at the table and she would be wiggling her entire rear end in excitement. Most of them forgave her for that as she is just so darn cute. However, a lot of her competition over the last year and a half consisted of bitches that were bigger, had more substance and better behaved. The judges over all either loved Tiggy or they didn't.

In any case, she's a champion in my book and most definitely has some wonderful qualities we hope will be passed on in the whelping box. She is going to be bred to a gorgeous champion male that I've been wanting to breed her to for awhile now. I'm excited and if all goes well, we hope to have puppies born late October. I anticipate she will have a small litter due to her size and her dam and granddam's history, as they too had small litters. As a matter of fact, Tiggy herself was the only puppy born in her litter. Honestly, I don't care how many puppies Tiggy has just as long as they are healthy. Even one gorgeous, healthy puppy (male or female) would be just fine with me (:



So cross your fingers and I'll let you know if this ends up successful.

Kelle,
Tiggy is a gorgeous Pug with the sweetest face. Her puppies are going to be just as gorgeous and just as sweet as their Mom.

I love the look of all of your Pugs! They all have a very special and beautiful look with beautiful faces that melt the heart!

I don't think I've ever been so excited about a breeding! Best of luck to you Kelle, I'll be praying for this litter to happen for you! I just love Kirby, I think he is an outstanding boy, and Tiggy is just a doll! Two fantastic dogs are going to create breath taking pups! ~ Jen :-)

Thanks Jen,

I'm just playing the waiting game to see if she took. I'm hopeful but not getting excited just yet. I wish she would be a little more forthright though in showing some signs LOL!
