Yesterday was the day of the “Meet the Breed,” event, therefore, the Pumis got a break from the conformation ring and we all could take it easier. We started the day in another nice size dog run (what a convenience for city dogs). The farm Pumis had plenty of steam to release after days of public good behavior and the ongoing breed standard controversy. After they’ve finished making dizzy the entire dog park population, we packed up and left.
Next stop was the Orange County Convention Center, the site of all the shows and trials and the “Meet the Breed event.” After the dog park exercise, the Pumi gang walked in relaxed and behaved like angels.
Once the public realized that we did not sell Grey Cattle, the breed has enjoyed great popularity. Now, it is our job to keep prospective buyers’ expectations realistic.
So remember, the Pumi is a terrier type breed with the need of daily off leash exercise and quality mental stimulation. Yes, they will sit on the couch with you calm after you gave them their daily exercise routine.
Enjoy your Pumi…
