Arrival Story:
After searching for a long time for a rescue dog, I came across a woman who could no longer keep her puppy. Since I was having a hard time adopting due to my vet records being over 5 years old; (last pet companion was 11 years ago) my applications were always denied. Well thanks to this lady's ad I was able to visit her home, meet the puppy and get all of his information about his birth parents and all of his vet records. Pudge came home with me on Friday, March 6, 2009. He has brought so much joy into my family and I am so thankful.

About his name - Pudge's last mother named hin Fudge at birth; then the family changed it to Kirby. Later her kids named him Pudge because he ate everything in sight and looks like a pudge ball. Well, the downfall to that is that they let him free feed 24/7. And when they saw his bowl empty, they re-filled it. Now Pudge is over weight - a whopping 20lbs. Since he's been with me, the free-feeding has stopped and he seems to be doing well. He also waits for his food to be prepared and does not just swallow it down like he did in the beginning. But snacks, well that's a work in progress. Back to his name - Everywhere I go whether it's to Petco or to the park; people constantly say that I must change his name. But woudn't you know it, Pudge is what he knows best and seems happiest with. Decisions, Decisions! UPDATE - PUDGE IT IS! He's the family's baby no matter what.

Forums Motto:
Pudge ya' doing?

The Last Forum I Posted In:

He's cute, sweet and cuddly and loves to play. Yet he's intelligent and very determined. His alter ego is Fudge Pudge Balenciaga. He's royalty. Don't you know.?!.
