I hope you all had a good Paddy's Day. We didn't go to a parade this year, instead we had lots of family over for some Guinness and some other beverages :P
The other day mummy was reminiscing about my gotcha day, and I thought we should share it with you guys along with some cute puppy pics of me.
Mummy always wanted a pug and was told for her 17th birthday that her parents would give her the money for one as a present. So about a month before her birthday mummy rang almost all the breeders in Ireland and told them to let her know if any puppies had or were going to be born.
Then on the 5th of October mummy got a phone-call from a woman in Tipperary, saying that she had three black pug pups. The woman had gots mummy's number of another breeder. She asked mummy if she wanted to come down and see the pups. Mummy said yes even though she actually had wanted a fawn pug, but it didn't hurt to look right ;)
The woman told mummy that the parents (my pug mum and dad) were champion show dogs and had won lots of medals. They were suppose to have produced champion offspring but things hadn't gone as planned. All three pups had white marks on their chest and weren't suitable for the top class shows. Mummy said that she didn't care if the puppies had a hundred white marks and that she would still like to come and visit.
On the 7th of October I met my mummy for the first time. There were 3 of us, me and my two sisters. Mummy wanted to take us all home but she chose me. She said that my sisters were very well behaved and had already been toilet trained while I barked and howled and rolled on my back and peed up into the air.
I guess my mummy just has a soft spot for naughty little boys, but who cares she chose me and I am so very happy that she did.
P.S. Yes we realise that we are posting a flashback Friday on a Saturday, mummy actually wrote this yesterday but instead of posting it, she saved it as a draft...whoops and didn't realise till today so I guess its actually flashback Saturday :P
