Ribbons on the Wall

Most of you know that Mom's hobby is doing 
Obedience and Rally Training with us pugs
Over the years there have been many ribbons won 
and she has them on display in the bedroom.

This wall remembers Mom's first two pugs
 to earn obedience titles

McKenzie earned her Companion Dog Title in 2000
And Char Shu earned the same title in 2002

Then there is the two cork boards for our ribbons

The upper left are Bailey's, the upper right are Hazel's

The lower left are Angel Greta's ribbons 
and mine are on the lower right

Several months ago Mom bought a shadow box to display Angel Greta's placement and title ribbons 

It was the first project she worked on when she retired

Mom was trying to figure out how to arrange them
but it really needed something to make it "Greta's"

So she went to the Hobby Lobby

 to find a proper background

Here is the finished project 
complete with pink background!

We are the PugRanch Kids
