the puggle



Puggle (Fang Thaddeus “Puggle” Sturgis) was born into captivity on an Amish puppy mill in Pennsylvania on July 5, 2008.

Thanks to, Puggle came to live with me in Virginia in late September 2008. He weighed 9 pounds and was generally the cutest thing anyone had ever seen.

Now 5 years old, he’s stolen many hearts, which comes in handy when I’m looking for someone to watch him for the weekend when I’m heading out of town.

Puggle sleeps under the covers at the foot of the bed, has never met a stranger, and is on constant alert for dropped food. He’s 28 solid, muscular pounds of unconditional love and enthusiasm.

For his fifth birthday (summer of 2013) we celebrated with a legit photo shoot.  You’re welcome.
