In this performance based world we live in, the road to becoming a Champion is not an easy one. These pugs resemble many I have seen waiting to enter the show ring or leaving the show ring. It is a rarefied atmosphere I cannot compare to anything else I have encountered before. Each dog has his own personality and is influenced by the pace (and yes! even mood) of his/her handler. In my opinion, they are winners just by being there... but that is just that, my opinion..... Congratulations to all the Champions!
