I want to take this opportunity to introduce you to my friend Griffin.
Pawl Griffin

Griffin is the V.P. of Canine Communications for Iams, Eukanuba and Natura Pet Food brands. His full name is Pawl Griffin; however, his call name is “Griffin.” Fans actually named him via Facebook.

Griffin is a Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen (PBGV) and was born on December 31, 2010. His breed name reveals much about him:

Petit – small
Basset – low to the ground
Griffon – wire coated
Vendéen – the area of France where the breed originated.

A PBGV is a French scenthound that was originally developed to hunt small game over rough and difficult terrain. The color of Griffin’s coat is white with a combination of tan, sable and black markings. For additional information about PBGV’s please visit the AKC Breed Standard.

Griffin is happy go lucky, extroverted, and smart. He is free with his voice, curious by nature and eager to please. He is never timid nor aggressive. He thrives when he is the center of attention. He is excited about life and trying new things.

Here’s Griffin helping out with a delivery donation of food to the Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry in March.

Griffin got on a surf board in September–his first time surfing! This took place in San Diego and was part of an annual fund raiser for Helen Woodward Animal Center.

How cool is that?  A surfer dude!

This photo was taken when Griffin took a trip to Boston in July of 2012. His stops included a P&G donation of books for Operation Outreach-USA.  Looks like he made those kids pretty happy doesn’t it?

My mom person got to meet Griffin when she went to the AKC Eukanuba National Championship.  (That’s not her with him on the podium.)
