    Tara chillin’ with toys and Kiko at about 15 weeks. Tara likes to burrow and snuggle, and she also likes to get in Kiko’s bed with him. We caught a few glimpses of this on camera. Tara is NOT fond of the camera, however. I think she does not like the f…

Liz was ready […]

  • An older dog can, maybe, possibly, learn new tricks

    Kiko the seven-year-old wonder pug is finally starting some obedience training at home with the help of an Ian Dunbar DVD. As Sam and I are hoping and planning for a puppy next year, we figure Kiko should be at least somewhat of a role model for good b…

  • And Now a Little History . . . Bringing Home Baby Kiko

    Seven years ago Sam and I set out on a hunt for pug breeders in central Florida, where we lived at the time. At that time the internet was not much of an accessible route to find information about dog breeds or breeders, so we did things the old fashio…
