Maine Dog Chuck
Maine Attributes: After seeing your beautiful February cover of the Maine representative to the Westminster Dog Show, and reading the subsequent negative letters you received besmirching the breed, we wish to introduce your readers to Chuck.
Chuck traveled to Maine with us last summer, and enjoyed his trip immensely. One of his favorite experiences was climbing around the rocks at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse. Yes, he with his little four inch legs climbed all around the rocks, stopping to explore every tidal pool he found. In the attached picture he sat on the giant rock and gazed out over the ocean, enjoying the salt air. So far from being a mere lap dog, he proved that he is very capable of bigger and better things.
In fact, the attached picture was sent to a local magazine, "Happenings" and he is featured on the April pet page. Readers of Happenings are voting all month and Chuck may very well win as the April "Pet of the Month". See the following link:
and scroll down the page to the "pet of the month" link.
Thanks, and we hope Chuck will enlighten your readers about chihuahuas!
