The circumstances of my birth were such
that although I know I am a PUG
and all of you know I am a PUG,
there were no registration papers saying
that I am a purebred PUG.
No Big Deal
You have to be registered with AKC
if you want to enter AKC Obedience & Rally trials
(which Mom & I want to do)
Fortunately AKC lets pups like me apply for what is called
a Purebred Alternative Listing
Mom had to fill out some papers with all my vital statistics,
and tell AKC why she thought I was a PUG
they wanted a couple of mug shots
and of course some green papers and assurance that
I had my lady operation.
We put all that in the mail a few weeks ago
and guess what came in the mail on Saturday!
An official paper that says I am a PUG
(we all knew that all along didn't we?)
and my official name is
Maybe She's Mabelene
Glad I am all official now!
