Barrie and Merle thought they were giving their 30-year-old daughter a cute and cuddly birthday present. They had no idea that one little pug would be the first in a family of 30.
Becca Drake fell head over heels for the little pup back in 2006.
“… I received her as a gift from my parents,” she said. “Then, I got another pug, as I wanted her to have a friend to play with.”
Every year since then, Becca adopted more and more little pugs, in addition to breeding the precious animals on her own.
To date, she’s actually housing a pack of 30! Yup, that’s right.
Believe it or not, Becca knows each and every pup by his or her own name … even when they’re covered in white foamy bubbles.
Selling her most expensive designer handbags and pricey jewelry, Becca has just about been able to afford the $24,000 annual bill accounting for the upkeep of all the canines.
If you do the math, that’s over $160,000 big ones over the last decade!
“They bring me so much love and happiness. Yes, they’re expensive and it’s definitely hard work keeping the house clean and making sure they’re all groomed and fed.”
We’ll take her word for it!
Even with the big price tag, this dog lover wouldn’t have it any other way.
Becca explains breakfast starts at 7:30, followed by cleanup and lunch prep. Meanwhile, the adorable 30 brothers and sisters enjoy a morning nap snuggled in one giant dogpile.
So far, Becca seems to be doing a great job! Based on the pugs’ wagging tales and slobbery smiles, they seem to agree as well.
“… there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do to ensure that they all live happy and healthy lives,” Becca explained. “They’re my whole world…”
Missing out on holidays, get-togethers, special events, and time for herself, Becca spends all her time with her friends.
Dressed in their Sunday best, the precious pugs aren’t about to miss out on the holidays!
“I know that some people will think I’m crazy, but my pugs are my life,” the woman explained. “I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
