Chummy: A smug pug living the dream

1 February, 2019 7:44 am

Hello my furry little chums!

I sit here paws prepared, having some pug reflection on 2019 so far.

January: WHAT A MONTH! I have become world famous – well nearly! You might have seen my cheeky chummy face on the BBC, or in the newspaper. I’ve been truly living the doggy dream, being the most spoilt and loved pug that ever existed.

You could say I’m getting a bit ‘pug-headed’ with all of the comments flying around about me:

‘Every school needs a Chummy’

‘I want to move schools’

‘I wish my school had a Chummy’

‘I need Chummy’

‘We need a Chummy!’

‘I want to come to your college’

You get the idea.

At college, we have had quite a time so far this academic year. Following on from a very lazy snuggly puggly Christmas (where I ate far too many leftovers and let go of my strict diet), it was all go from the moment the college doors opened on 7 January.

What’s been happening at Keighley College?

Our Level 3 Media Makeup Students went to the Airedale Shopping Centre for the Keighley Kids’ Theatre Day. They put their skills to the test and created a variety of makeup looks.

We held our ‘Next Chapter’ event where the team officially shared the new identity and vision for the future of Keighley College – I was obviously mentioned more than once!

Our students undertook joinery work experience at St Alban’s Place with Keir Construction and had a brilliant and useful experience.

We elected the new Keighley College student governor – Rhian Evans – she is completely pawsome.

In other news, I’ve been spending a lot of time running up and down the college stairs, trying to lose my Christmas Chummy Chub!

Our next big event coming up is the taster event on Saturday 9 February. I will be there, looking as cute as ever.

Book on and you can come and give me the biggest squeeze, as well as getting hands-on experience in courses that interest you. Book here:

I’ve loved 2019 so far and there’s so much more to come. Thanks again everyone for all your support, strokes and pug love…
