Snowpug`s Egon "Egon"
Snowpug`s Egon is one of two puppies from my E - litter born June 22, 2009. He is my first self-breed, black pug. His parents are: Snowpug`s Baroness Marie Of Victory (mother) and Gamekeeper`s Frank Pickle (father). The father is a black import from kennel Gamekeeper in Sweden.
"Egon" has inherited many of the good qualities from his grandma Troppola Dark Denise, and it is not hard to see that he has her good lines.
"Egon" has very strong and good bone substance, a great double tail curl, completely shiny black coat color, a good masculine head and expression, correct ears, nice & calm temperament and fantastic movements. In my eyes he is a fantastic black pug!
I chose to take "Egon" out of the show ring when he was 5 years old since I saw that he no longer thought it was fun to be at the dog shows. I never "force" my dogs to do something they don't want - so he had to take a break. It turned out that we really got the score for this!
"Egon" came back in the show ring as a veteran when he was 9 years old in 2018 - and there he made a FANTASTIC comeback!
He then became Norwegian and Swedish show champion at 1 month and the same year he received both his veteran titles. He won numerous Best In Breed Veteran in 3 Nordic countries - Finland, Sweden and Norway - and he has several Best Of Show Veteran placements.
This just shows that you can keep a senior pug in great condition even if they are 9-10 years old!
