Don introduced a new member of the Burke’s Backyard team Maurie, the Pug puppy. He spent his first night in a box beside Don’s bed, so whenever he felt lonely Don was right there to comfort him.

Like all puppies, Maurie is a bundle of mischief. He has already started ‘helping’ in the office, and has also chewed a few shoes. Don says that Pugs have wonderful temperaments, and although Pug breeders sometimes worry about children hurting the eyes of puppies, this breed is particularly good with kids.
