Big­gie the pug is back

Tampa Bay Times - - Nation & World -

Big­gie, the pop­u­lar pug who had fans chant­ing his name at the West­min­ster Ken­nel Club dog show at Madi­son Square Gar­den last year, was back for more Mon­day. “He’s got the ‘it’ fac­tor,” said owner Carolyn Koch of Chapel Hill, N.C. “He’s ev­ery­thing a pug should be. He’s a lap dog. He’s a co­me­dian. He’s a fam­ily dog,” she said. “And he loves to show.” Breed judg­ing be­gan Mon­day at the il­lus­tri­ous show. More than 2,800 dogs in 203 breeds, from af­fen­pin­sch­ers to York­shire ter­ri­ers, are signed up to com­pete over two days, lead­ing up to the tele­vised Best in Show award tonight.
