April 11th is National Pet Day, and if there’s anything we might love just a bit more than winning prizes, it’s our beloved pets! So there’s no better time to get to know our favorite PCH pet, Lil Chuck.
Lil Chuck is a Pug!
If you’ve ever wondered what breed of dog Lil Chuck is, the distinctive nose might have been a giveaway. He’s a pug! Pugs originate in China, with their bloodline tracing all the way back to 400 B.C. They’re pretty ancient! Most of the Buddhist monks took pugs as their pets in Tibetan monasteries, which explains why Lil Chuck is always so calm, cool, and collected when he has to keep the secret and surprise his winners. He’s got zen embedded in his DNA!
Chinese Emperors treated pugs like royalty, and it’s safe to say Lil Chuck is still living the good life, just like his ancestors. He gets to travel cross country and see the world, and there are treats at every rest stop! Don’t let the underbite fool you, he’s grinning from ear to ear. And if you think you know all there is to know about these pups, see if you can guess the names of their Asian breed cousins with our quiz! It’ll bank you some tokens, and maybe you’ll be next to get a visit from our favorite Prize Pet Pug!
Lil Chuck Loves Prizes!
When we say that Lil Chuck is living the good life, we really mean it. In fact, he doesn’t really seem to want to submit any PTO! If he had to name his favorite place on earth, we’re pretty sure he’d say “sitting in the paw-ssenger seat of the Prize Patrol van.” Or maybe on the doorstep of PCH’s next lucky winner? There’s nothing that this pup finds more exciting than getting to meet thousands of new PCH family members across the nation and gift them with life changing prizes!
When it comes to his own definition of luxury, though, Lil Chuck is a much simpler doggo. After all, he wouldn’t even know what to do with all that money! In fact, many pet owners adopt pugs because of how low maintenance they are. A successful life for our pet looks like a lot of peanut butter, bones, back scratches, and chew toys. Don’t worry, though– he has been informed that the Big Check is not a chew toy.
Lil Chuck Wants You to Win Big!
Lil Chuck has no plans of retiring any time soon. What would he do with his dapper suit and tie?! He’s having too much fun and looking a bit too stylish to stop now. So in order to keep the Prize Patrol wheels turning and hopefully arriving in your neighborhood very soon, you’ve gotta keep playing!
