Arrival Story: Gigi came to us from Midwest Pug Rescue. We were on a trip to Lake Geneva, WI when we received the email from the rescue lady that Gigi needed a home and she had thought about us. We had applied for a rescue several months earlier. Her picture was so cute and we were so excited to get home to meet her. She has fulfilled all of our expectations. She has a very loving heart and affectionate personality.
Bio: Adopt 2010 Contest - We adopted Gigi from Midwest Pug Rescue.
Gigi came from a couple that gave her up due to their divorce in 2007 when she was 2 years old. She was a little reserved, but soon became the playful, outgoing, adoring and adorable Pug that she was always meant to be. She has two sisfurs, a Dachshund and another Pug. Although she prefers to sit in Daddy's big chair to watch TV with him every night, she sleeps with Mama. Gigi eagerly welcomes all visitors to our home with kisses and snorts which she is pleased to share.
Please consider rescue when you are ready for a new dog in your life.
The sun came up on a beautiful winter morning. The sky was clear and the air was cold but the sun felt warm on the sleek black coat of the Duchess Gigi of Geniality as she strolled through the meadow. Gigi was in search of the dried fall flowers and beautiful grasses that sometimes stuck to their stems throughout the winter months. She wanted to make a dried arrangement for her Queen, Daisey Mae, who was not feeling well. Gigi thought flowers, even pretty dried ones, might help her queen recover quickly from her illness.
At that same time, the handsome Duke Jettson DuPaw was out with his bow, hunting for quail in the same meadow. He liked to come to this meadow because the grounds were filled with birds and rabbits and other small creatures. There was also a fair sized creek that ran through the meadow that he fished in the warm spring and summer days. Duke Jettson knew that King Spivey loved to eat roasted quail and Jett was determined to find a few for the king’s table. Jettson loved the king and queen very much and was a favorite in the Royal Court as was Duchess Gigi. This was a time of great pawties and plenty of everything. Delicacies abounded on the dining tables and Jett brought some of the best.
The duke spotted some movement in the tall grasses and thought it may be a covey of quail so he gently but quickly moved in the direction of the disturbance. As he came upon the sight a beautiful pug raised up from her stooped position where she had been cutting dried flowers. Jettson was surprised, to say the least, to find the pretty black pug, Gigi, out in his meadow and said loudly, “Woo-woo-woo”, in a startled voice.
Just as startled, Gigi barked back, “woo-woo-woo”, as she jumped away!
Jettson approached her cautiously as he didn’t know if she was angry at being disturbed, but Gigi laughed and laughed at the attractive black pug who stood before her. She had of course seen the duke in the royal court, but had never been introduced. He always seemed like such a nice pug-man and so she sniffed at him politely. Jett sniffed back and he was polite as well.
“What are you doing out here all alone”, Jett asked?
“Why, I am gathering dried flowers for Queen Daisey Mae”, said the pretty pug. “What are you doing”?
“Oh, the Royal Highness, King Spivey, loves roasted quail and I was trying to find a bird or two for his table”, said Jett, “but you have probably scared them all away by now”.
Gigi was very sorry but also quite proud and because her ego was hurt she snapped, “You would think this was your meadow. I see no signs printed ‘PRIVATE LAND’ so I am as entitled as you to be here”!
Both Gigi and Jett held their ground there in the meadow on that beautiful winter morning and looked into each other’s big brown eyes. All the anger and frustration then melted as if a warm summer breeze had come from the south and replaced the coolness with warm feelings of adoration as the two stood face to face.
Both pugs began laughing and giggling and sniffing and snorting and licking. They ran around in circles as if they were puppies, jumping on each other in play. Although, they had not previously been introduced, they knew in that moment that they were meant for each other just like King Spivey and Queen Daisy Mae!
From that chance meeting came a great love and friendship that transcended squabbles and hard work and different groups. They built a New Charm School so other pups could learn from them how to be good, solid, sophisticated citizens of the Kingdom of Spoiled Pugs.
Yes, a special kingdom. The United Pug Foundation (UPF). The magical kingdom has Dragons!
We have slain those dragons, but they keep coming back. Time after time the citizens of the UPF are tested by these pesky, huge, fire breathing scourge. Time after time, we have beat them to a pulp, slain them and barbequed them at a feast. They are very tasty though a bit tough.
I am sorry to say that there have been a few injuries, but nothing that the medic station couldn't take care of quickly. Dragons have even swallowed a few of our warriors and even our royalty and they always made it out.
Our warriors are ferocious! We have infantry, cavalry, and an air force in the form of our Josie, the Queen of Pug Faeries and her airfolk. Why, in our last battle our King Spivey even sent a crew of sailors. That was a special dragon who lived in ice and water. We still got the best of him even if we did only run him off. I am not sure if he went away to lick his wounds or he died, but we had KFC for our feast and not dragon meat.
