it's Official - I'm A Pug!

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 
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

Side View

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!

Maybe She's Mabelene you go girl and win those Obedience & Rally trials!
Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s Maybelline. You have those exotic eyes and skin that appeared flawless just like in the commercial.
Thanks for being a friend
