My very first time in the show ring was at 3 months and 8 days and I won the Best Baby Puppy in Group with Mumma who had never been in the ring before either. We work well together and she is very proud of me whether I win or not because I always do my best :)
I developed a severe neurological disorder at 4 months of age. After extensive testing in Australia there was no evidence for my condition, but I like to look on the bright sight of life...woohoo I skipped from Kindy to to Uni! Kindly the Narcolepsy Research Centre at Stanford University in the United States analyzed my CSF and blood to confirm my diagnosis is Type 1 Narcolepsy (with Cataplexy). The cause is unknown at this stage but in time future testing may answer many questions??
My narcolepsy is triggered by major emotions like excitement etc and even though I loved the show ring, unfortunately Mumma made me retire. She thought it was in my best interest because the excitement of the shows and all the other little people could induce an episode, but all it did was take my fun away :(
I am an Australian Champion but unfortunately I cannot have a family of my own now, my condition is extremely rare and little is known so we aren't going to take any chances with breeding! Also Mumma said I have been through enough with testing that I deserve an easy life.
I didn't show for nearly a year, my 2nd birthday Mumma gave me a surprise present and we showed for the first time in Neuter class. Boy had I missed those treats!! So we are back in the ring again and after 3 weeks I won every Best Neuter in Group, 2 x Reserve Best Neuter in Show and my very first Best Nueter In Show!! That also got me enough points to be an Australian Champion again! The best part of all is we are having FUN!
My medication helps and now we have discovered a couple of training techniques that help. Now I even have my own custom made cupboard to hide my food and personal treadmill for working out to keep me lean )(
Aside from sleeping standing up occasionally, I really do have the best life any pug could ask for!! Everyone knows I am Mumma's girl! My favourite pastimes are wanting food, going out in the car, wanting food, socializing, wanting food, pug "help" around the house and wanting food. But my favourites are staring at strangers, looking at myself in the mirror and...did I mention wanting food?!
My upcoming job at the shows is supposed to be team manager, I wanted to be called something like business partner or CEO or even queen of Damasca but Mumma said that I was being a little extravagant! i think she is coming around because she has called me the queen of Damasca a couple of times.. That is of course when we get more little pug people to our Damasca family but I will remain around the ring as much as I can!
Thank you for viewing my profile :)
