Happy Dad’s Day!

Pablo wants to wish all you dads out there a Happy Father’s Day! And to give a special shout-out to the pug who sired him: Sisnben’s Moonlancer.

But the real test of being a dad isn’t who provided the sperm, it’s who picks up the poop. K wins that honor, hands down. So let’s raise a glass to K and all the other dads who feed, walk, and love their furry adopted sons and daughters.

    Sweet photo, lovely sentiment, although I would add NON-furry adopted, step-, whatever, sons and daughters as well.

  2. Pablo! I can’t believe it! Sisnbens Moonlancer is my biological dad also! Sisnbens Pollyanna is my Mom. I should have seen it before. I mean, I thought you were handsome from the start, but we do bear quite resemblance to one another. I just turned 10 on March25th. How old are you?

  3. OMG!!! Pablo’s mom is Morgan Pride of Gateway. And Pablo turned 10 on April 14. How great to know Pablo has a sister!!!

    And quite a busy dad. Good to know he comes from such virile stock.

    Hi there,
    I am wondering if the sire of your dog “sisnben moonlancer” is a descendent of “sisnben mapleshade Hercules”? If so, my dog may be from the same bloodline! My pug just celebrated his 17th birthday yesterday. The breeders we adopted him from are no more so I’ve been trying to locate any pug who has his lineage! Thanks so much 🙂

    • First, congratulations on your long-living pug! 17 is quite an achievement. Pablo turned 14 in April.

      We adopted Pablo from breeders in CT (Wallingford, I believe). At the moment we are in the process of moving and Pablo’s papers are packed away. As soon as we get settled, I will take a look and get back to you.

    Hi, I am so sorry as I’ve just seen this! I never received an email indicating of your reply! Beethoven is also from Connecticut! The Breeders are Sisnben Kennels. Unfortunately he passed only this October passed and I was and still am in the UK – I miss him terribly but like you said it’s an achievement to be a 17 year old pug and he lived a happy and full life. Please let me know once you find Pablo’s papers. Thanks.

    • Hi Tina,

      I am so sorry to hear that Beethoven passed. I can tell from his birthday video that he was much loved.

      I looked at my AKC certificate and here’s what I found. Pablo’s father was Sisnben’s Moonlancer whose mother was Sisnben Dreamcatcher whose mother was Sisnben Gensing V Dak. I got Pablo from a home-breeder who told me that she mated her female pug with a male from a CT kennel. Since she lived in Wallingford, CT and Sisnben Kennels was in Terryville, CT, I think we can safely assume that Beethoven and Pablo are related. I only hope that Pablo continues to have a long and happy life like Beethoven did.

    My name is Julieann Ruggiero-Swanson. I believe that my Pug Nunzio and Pablo are brothers. We purchased Nunzio from Ann Bennadetto and Nunzio’s dad was MoonLancer. Has was born June 8, 2001. My husband and I were just talking the other night, wondering if any of Nunzio’s siblings were still alive.

    I’m so glad I came across your blog, Julie
