A new addition

My congratulations to Matt and Jess, I gather that mini Stratton has finally arrived! Well done guys!

Well, not quite the same thing as a new baby I know, but the Poole household had a new addition today. Say hello to Pickle!



  1. awwwwwww…very cute Ben. We have a new one on the way as well. Maybe we can compare puppy stories. Bruce Elgort#
  2. Looks like a wonderful boxer pup?Mac Guidera#
  3. I love boxers, but no, Pickle isn’t one of those! He’s actually a cross, known as a “Jug”. These are a cross between Jack Russells and Pugs. They make for a nice breed—full of mischief, good family dogs. And they don’t have the breathing issues that miniatures like Pugs (or Pekingese) get.Ben Poole#
  4. Aww. Just beautiful. Congrats and I'm sure you will have a load of fun with him.Kitty#
  5. Wow, a Jug, that's a first for me. Being a Jack Russell owner I find that more appealing than the also recently new to me, Puggle. A cross between a Pug and Beagle, that I thought was great.Mac Guidera#
