Emma, our first Pug and family pet stole our hearts the moment she came into our lives. She was our matriarch Pug and road rough shot over our Pug tribe.
Emma will always be loved dearly and was a very special member of our family.

When we decided to start breeding Pugs, we purchased Princess Fiona and MCG’s Prince Henry (both AKC & CKC registered). Admittedly, we were not well informed about breeding purebred dogs and it wasn’t until Fiona had her first litter on the ground that we became aware that in addition to our dogs being deemed healthy by our Veterinarian and being registered purebreds, Pug breed conformation standards also contribute significantly to good breeding practices.
Our goal was and is to breed properly for the sake of the Pug breed so we started showing Henry and made the decision to spay and retire Fiona because her conformation was weak in too many areas.
Fiona is now being loved, cared for, and spoiled by a wonderful couple in Abbotsford, BC. Fiona & Henry’s puppies are all in great pet homes with wonderful families and they are all doing well.

'MCG's Prince Henry' came to us from Bellingham, Massachusetts. Because Pugs cannot travel on a plane when it is warmer than 74 degrees Fahrenheit, it took over 3 months to arrange a flight for Henry. It was a long 3 months for us but we finally got to pick Henry up in Seattle on October 1, 2011. The moment we let him out of his travel kennel he ran to us like he had known us forever. There was an instant bond between us. He had the nicest and friendliest demeanor and we immediately fell in love with him.
Henry was one of the nicest looking pugs I had seen so we were interested in seeing how Henry compared with other pug dogs. After receiving feedback from some pug breeders, we entered Henry in his first conformation show. He was awarded Best of Breed and Winner’s Dog his first day in the ring and continued on to be a Canadian Champion. We have always been super proud of our Henry and are very thankful that his breeder trusted us, as new breeders, to look after him.
Henry retired and was placed into his forever home in December 2016. He still comes to visit us from time to time and is really happy to see us but is also really happy to go back to his wonderful new family who adores him as much as we do.

Getting ready for her first show.

CH Caillets Neytiri was with us from January 8, 2013 to April 7, 2017. Neytiri was a very welcome addition to our family and breeding program. She has always been a very sweet and loving girl and an extreme joy to have around. Neytiri is a true 'cuddle pug', she loves spending time cuddled up on someones lap.
Neytiri had her first litter in 2014. She was such an amazing mom and was extremely attentive with her puppies right up until they were 12 weeks old and left to go to their new homes. We knew she missed each of her puppies when they left. She always was very close and loving with her daughters that we kept for our breeding program, Peral (first litter) and Zia (from her second litter in 2015).
After having her third and last litter in the fall of 2016, it was time to retire Neytiri from our breeding program. On April 7th, 2017, Neytiri went to her forever home to live with her son Ben and his family...a perfect new life for her.

Kalli is a beautiful black female. We were looking forward to showing her and including her in our breeding program but unfortunately at 10 months she was diagnosed with a growth plate fracture in her left hip. Kalli underwent hip surgery and has fully recovered. She was spayed and is now rehomed with a wonderful family in Sidney, BC.
HILJA Blässhunde USA aus der Leinemasch
Born: Dec. 13, 2014
On February 21, 2015, we got a new App for our home...Hilja. She is an Appenzeller Sennenhund, one of the 4 Swiss Mountain breeds.
Appenzellers were bred as cattle dogs so herding is instinctive to them. This breed also has virtually no health issues as their breeding program is strictly controlled. Their life expectancy is between 12 - 14 years.
Appenzeller's are not yet recognized by CKC and are still only on the pre-registry list with AKC.
Hilja's mom was bred in Germany under the kennel names Blässhunde USA & Appenzeller aus der Leinemasch. Hilja was trained to help us look after the pugs when they are outside on our property. We're really happy to have her and are very grateful to both Sheryl Green and Manon Siebe for letting us adopt her.
Desta from Townview
- Born: Nov. 27, 2013
Desta joined our family on January 22, 2017.
Desta was born in Linden, Alberta. Her registered name is 'Desta from Townview'. Desta was the pick of the litter by her breeder. When she was 9 months old, Desta went to Utah to live with a very wonderful man. They had a wonderful loving relationship but due to unfortunate circumstances, her dad had to find a new home for her. When we heard about Desta, it did not take Art & I long to get in touch with Peter to let him know we would be happy to add her to our family. Within a few days, Art was on his way to Utah to pick her up and bring her home.
Desta is a very beautiful tricolour female Appenzellerr that was selected as a breeding dog by her breeder. It was always planned for her to be bred and we agreed to breed her when she came into heat. She arrived to our home on Sunday, had her health tests completed 3 days later on Wednesday morning and started her heat on Wednesday afternoon. The following Wednesday Desta went on a road trip with Art to Alberta to be bred with Quinn vom Felsengarten. Desta's first litter was born on April 4, 2017.
Many thanks to Mirjam Hofman and Peter Combs for trusting us to take care of Desta.

Bella, our German Shepherd, was my step son's dog and came to be with us as a result of some changes in his life beyond his control.
Bella was very timid as a puppy but has outgrown her shyness and has matured into a very loving pet. She has developed a very strong bond with Art and can almost always be found in close proximaty to him.
Bella and Hilja have become the best of buddies and do a wonderful job of watching over our pugs.
Lukie came to us as a rescue dog in March of 2014 at 11 years of age. His family could no longer look after him due to personal circumstances beyond their control. Lukie had a neurological disorder resulting from being in a car accident when he was a 6-month old puppy and his mobility was not the greatest, but he managed to get around okay and fit in really well with our other pugs and pug puppies.
Due to our move to Deroche, Lukie moved in with a pug fancier and friend who became very attached to him. The bond between them was nothing short of amazing...BFF is an understatement.
On the night of March 5th, 2017 at 14 years of age, Lukie crossed over the rainbow bridge leaving behind some very saddened hearts.
RIP dear Lukie. We feel so privileged to have been able to spend part of your life with you and so very sad that the time spent could not have been longer.
Gabi aka Morgana
September 28, 2011 – August 1, 2015
Under her registered name of CH Caillet's High Society, Morgana achieved multi group placing’s while competing for her championship. She attained her CKC Championship on June 16 2012 at 8 mos of age.
Morgana came into my life in August of 2013 and was my “heart” dog from the moment I saw her. I purchased her as a breeding female when she was not quite two years old. After a number of unsuccessful breeding attempts, I came to the conclusion that motherhood just wasn't part of her greater plan. Morgana was social with other dogs, had a very sweet demeanor, loved being with people and children and rarely complained about anything. It was extremely difficult for me to let her go but she deserved to be loved and have more one-on-one time than I could give her. There was a wonderful woman that I came to know in Duncan that was looking for her “heart” dog and I just knew from the moment I met her, she was ‘the’ right person for Morgana. Morgana left me for the first time on July 10th…I felt a great loss but found peace knowing that she would be loved to pieces and doted on and that I would still have an arms-length connection to her.
Morgana's new pet name became Gabi, it means strength, and she really had a lot of that. Gabi was only with her new mom for 3 short weeks but quickly found a place in her heart as she did with everyone else that was fortunate enough to know her.
Gabi passed away suddenly early in the morning on Saturday, August 1, 2015. The cause of death was due to a complication from a small procedure she underwent while she was at the animal hospital.
It will take time process the devastating loss of this little girl that we adored so much and I can only find solace knowing that she touched so many of our hearts in the short time she was with us and her love was deeply reciprocated by those of us that had the opportunity to know her.
May you Rest In Peace my little 'Gana'... I will always "Love You Lots!"
