Portrait of ANOTHER famous relative!

Hello there everyone! Today we have another glimpse into my interesting family history for you all! You may remember the fine portraits that mom acquired of my 7th Great Aunt Fanny and my 18th Great Grandfather, Colonel Hampton the Flying Ace...but thanks to the (fictional) website called, mom has found another ancestory of mine....

Meet famed journalist PUGWARD R. MURROW!!!!

(be sure to click to biggify....Pugward's image is made of NEWSPAPER print!)
Isn't the resemblace UNCANNY????

It's a little known fact that my pugcestor, Pugward R. Murrow was the reporter that broke the big scandal between (then) King Edward and Wallis Simpson!!
Here is a photo of Duke of Windsor, Edward VIII, and Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson taken April 21, 1954

It's been said that Mr. Murrow was able to break the scandal due to some tips from some "UNKNOWN" sources very close to Mrs. Simpson in exchange for treats!!!
In case you're not familiar with this story (or didn't see "The King's Speech"), King Edward VIII fell in love with Mrs. Wallis Simpson, not only an American, but also a married woman already once divorced. Yet, in order to marry the woman he loved, King Edward was willing to give up the British throne - and he did!!! WOW...that's a story fit for TMZ if we ever heard one!!!

We did some digging and Pugward was the proud recipient of several awards for his fine work in the field of journalism, including a PUGBODY and 2 PUGLITZERS!!! Wow!

VERRRY impressive!!!!

You may be very surprised to find that there are copies of my famous pugcestor's print available at TJ Maxx in their fine art department. I really must have mom check into the legal aspect of this as I'm SURE there must be royalties involved for using my pugcestor's likeness...don't you think???

Happy Hump Day everyone!!!

I am not surprised by your royal lineage Salinger. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if our family lines intersected at some point!
