CHUBBS THE WAMPUG MEMORIAL FUND

December 28, 2002 – December 18, 2017

Not so long ago…

In a town not so far away…

Lived a Wampug.

Oh, her journey to become a Wampug was filled with so much fun!

Living with a Mamma who was a veterinarian, and Daddy who dealt in props, our budding Wampug, Chubbs, found herself the center of all sorts of photo shoots.

And the costumes, oh the costumes!

Chubbs loved to dress up and pose for the camera. And pose she did, often causing her Mamma to squeal with delight as she posted those pictures on Chubbs’ very own Facebook Page.

As Chubbs’ following grew, she talked with Mamma about doing things that could help those pugs not as fortunate as she. From participating in Arizona Pug Adoption & Rescue Network’s annual Cutest Pug Contest and Calendar, to filling a swimming pool with rubber duckies for sale to help Wyoming Pug Rescue raise funds for medical needs, Chubbs found great joy in helping pugs in need.

Later in life, she became a special needs pug herself, and could frequently be seen at her Mamma’s vet clinic, zipping around in her pretty pink wheels!

Chubbs loved her family, her followers, and her life.

Show your love and support for Chubbs by donating to APARN to help them continue their mission of rescuing other special needs pugs like Chubbs.  Your love and support can help provide the life every pug (and Wampug!) deserves!

Run free with all of your friends over the rainbow bridge sweet little Chubbs.

  16. I was introduced to Miss Chubbs when I lost my sunshine, Pugsly. The joy of watching her helped to ease the pain of such a great loss for me. I believe Miss Chubbs is now a Rock Star on the Rainbow Bridge and my Pugsly will finally get to meet her.

  17. Thank you sweet Chubbs for bringing a beautiful smile and happiness to this world. I loved seeing your pictures on Facebook. I know my Lucky and Blackie will meet you at the bridge and play with you. Blackie used to talk to us down here she’s super friendly and very outgoing. Lucky is a big old lover boy. Hugs to your momma and daddy. Run free sweet princess

  18. Chubbs and Momma. I can’t even begin to tell you how many smiles you gave me. You’ve been in my thoughts every day since I heard
    the heartbreaking and unexpected news about Chubbs. xoxoxo

  19. Big hugs to Chubbs’ mom & dad. RIP Miss Chubbs – now you can cuddle with your sweetheart, Chester, and enjoy lots of treats from your Aunt Angie. xoxo

  20. Chubbs, You are forever in our hearts ♥️You had the “It” Factor, that special connection to so many people. Your momma loved you more than life, so evident & so amazing. Surf Gidget The Pug is so happy she spent time with you & we will never forget you. You sparked our soul & we are so proud you did ♥️ Please hold that force in the sky until we meet again my dear luminous pug friend. With love, Gidgie & her mom

  21. Thank you to Chubbs’ mama Kristen for sharing her with the world and letting us love her too. I will miss seeing that happy little face light up when there were snackies near. My little black Pug girl gets that same look in her eyes when there are snackies. I still can’t believe she is gone but I’m glad she was in the arms of someone who loved her. Run free in the meadows at the Rainbow Bridge sweet Chubbs.

  22. Chubbs will be missed and never forgotten. She lived a long life, and brought delight to many, myself included. My sincere condolences to her family who adored her, and to all who are grieving for the loss of this lovely little girl. It’s a comfort that she gracefully & peacefully slipped away, naturally, on her own terms. She will live in our memories and hearts, forever! There are many who went on before her, and I can only imagine the amazing welcoming committee that greeted her at the Rainbow Bridge!

  23. In memory of beautiful Chubbs, who always gave more than she received. While using her charm and sweetness to make us all smile, she saved so many pugs who needed homes, and even saved us all, just a little bit, every day.

  24. Chubbs was a beautiful light in this world. She brought so much joy to us, and so many others. As an APARN pug Momma (Miss Cookie, formerly Tanya, and Stitch), my heart just breaks for you and your family. Thank you for all the pug love, woo woos, strawberry snackie moments, and sharing her with us all. She had a wonderful life because of you. It was very clear how much she loved you, and she knew how much you loved her. My deepest sympathies to Chubb’s Momma and Dad in this difficult time.

  25. You brightened my days every time I saw you. I met your Mama in both Chicago and Washington and was delighted to be able to visit with her and see the joy in her when she spoke about you. You were the light of her and your Daddy’s lives and filled so many other people’s lives with joy. Fly free little girl – I’m sure you have lots of friends with you at the Rainbow Bridge but we left here will miss you always.

  26. “When I left you I was but the learner. Now I am the master.” — Darth Vader and Chubbs the Wampug

    Yes you are Chubbs! You are the Master! Heaven has gained another angel. You will be missed dearly. May heaven be full of snackies, fresh strawberries and lots of nap time. Please keep an eye on my Frodo and give the Bumblesnot a big Pug Kiss for me. You are the Master Sis’ta!

    XOXOXO

I was hoping to make it out to the pug event in April to meet you, and am so sorry that you won’t be there. I know, you’ll be there in spirit. Run free with Garbanzo, my special needs pug who passed in 2008. I know he’ll be meeting you at the Rainbow Bridge.

  30. Chubbs made me happy. I am so glad I have pugs. I knew when you didn’t post anything for a few days that something was wrong. It honestly hurt me seeing you lost her. I cried like a baby, she does have an impact on people i almost felt like she was my dog too, lol. She was a beautiful, happy girl and I’m looking forward to seeing her puppy photos and over the years. Thank you for continuing her legacy, making sure she’s still alive in some way. I hope you’re doing well and I am so sorry for your loss.

  31. Precious Chubbs, if there was ever a dog as sweet as sugar, it was you. Your contagious smiles & spunky outfits brought many people much joy. You have inspired me to support pugs in need & I cannot express the magnitude of smiles your posts have on me. Woo woo woo!!!

You had a brand of magic that is unmatched and could instantly turn a frown into a smile just with your presence. Bless your Mummy and Daddy, I know you are watching over them.

  42. Miss you little lady. I remember reading a post Chubbs’ momma made about being sad about Chubbs fur turning white/grey, and that it was a sign she was getting older. Chubbs dad then said those were her happy hairs, I know I’m leaving something out, but that’s how I started to look at the grey in my pugs muzzle and made me just think of all the good, fun times with him. #happyhsirsforever
