Planned Breeding

Little Miss Tiggy (aka Arvay's Lonestar To Treasure) has come into season. She is the dam of Arvay's Midnight Lullaby (Cricket) who was a singleton. So we don't expect her to have a large litter. I will feel blessed if she has 1-2 puppies. In any case, our plans are to breed her to AM/CAN Ch. Fantasy's Brookside Rack Em' Up (aka Xander) whom we have frozen semen on. Xander is owned by Tania of Brookside Pugs and is a stunning little guy that I think will compliment Tiggy very well and the two of them should produce some darling puppies.

Here is Tiggy and her Beau Xander.

Pug photos

By now you all know how much I enjoy taking pictures. Ok, I admit that I tend to get pretty snap-happy but I can't help it. Who wouldn't want to take a gazillion photo's of Pugs? So anyway, the other day I was getting my camera out of the case it slipped from my hand. There I was stuck in this slow motion unreal state as I watched it fall and crash onto my hardwood floor. The worse part was hearing a crack and shattering sound. I swear that sound still gives me chills.

Fortunately, it was just the lense that broke and the camera itself survived. Just how I'm not sure. But thank the Lord for small favors. I know it's just a camera but it's an expensive one.

So today I dug out my other lense (thankfully, I had another). This one however is one of those long zoom lenses that makes the camera heavy, but I thought what the heck it's better than nothing. So off we went out into the yard to test it out. It was actually pretty neat to be able to take photo's from across the yard. Here are a few I snapped of Tiggy and Seven.
