International Puppy, LLC There can be only one? FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 1/3/2019

When we started IPC, there were very few pups left and there had been no puppy contests for seven years. Our goal was to unite the remaining puppy community, promote puppy play, help the pup community grow, bring puppy play out of the back rooms and into the mainstream.

Since the last IPAHW event, one question we get quite often when meeting pups at other events is

"Which side are we on?”.

They are obviously referring to the International Puppy Contest (IPC) and the International Puppy and Trainer Contest (IPTC).

The answer is of course, "We are on the side of the pups, oh and we also own IPC".

Questions like this gives the appearance or impression that some in the community are trying to increase their status by dividing the puppy community between IPC and IPTC camps. Are there really so many puppy events now that pups must only attend only one event and not another?

We at IPC are proud to have been a part of helping grow the puppy community from near extinction in 2011 to the world-wide community it has become today and will not allow anyone to use IPC as a means to divide the puppy community. The only way we know to prevent it is to cancel the International Puppy Contest and IPC Weekend. The death of Joe Mastrapasqua (aka Joe Puppy Graphics) has left IPC short staffed so it was going to be a huge challenge for us to plan and organize the IPC Weekend for 2019 and adding an artificial IPC vs. IPTC controversy on top of everything else is just more than we are willing to contend with.

Effective immediately, the International Puppy Contest and IPC Weekend is officially canceled. "International Puppy" will continue to have a presence in the community in the future but as for puppy contests, everyone can consider the IPC/IPTC merger to be complete since canceling IPC produces exactly the same results that the IPC/IPTC merger would have produced.

Our approach to running the IPC event was vastly different than the way IPTC ran their event. We insisted on keeping the contest free and supporting the local puppy friendly establishments and we hope the two years IPTC had with IPC will help them keep their contest free for pups and supportive of the few local establishments that still exist.

We at IPC wish the International Puppy and Trainer Contest the best of luck with their future events and will support them in any capacity we can.

Master Joe Mastrapasqua 1964-2018 RIP

Master Joseph Mastrapasqua - Executive Producer International Puppy Contest
Master Joe was one of two owners of Puppy Graphics LLC, International Puppy LLC and Executive Producer of International Pup and Handler weekend.  He was the Web Master, Member and former President of The Tampa Leather Club. He was the Founder of Florida Leather n Fetish Pride (FLaFP.com).  He was married to Mitch Hixson and they were together since November 2000, they have been Pup Flip's owners since 2009.  Joe was in the Tampa Bay area since July 2000 and was active in the leather community in P-town, MA, Phoenix, AZ and Tampa, FL since 1986.

Master Joe Mastrapasqua was taken off life support and passed away on September 6, 2018 after battling lung cancer that had spread to other parts of his body.

For several months, day and night he fought for every breath he took and tried to suppress the uncontrollable coughing each breath would bring.

He couldn’t lean back or put his swollen legs and feet up or he wouldn’t be able to breathe, even though he was on oxygen. He had to sit in his chair, leaning forward, feet down and his greatest wish was to simply be able to lie down in a bed again. Medications couldn’t stop the back and chest pain caused by the constant coughing. His legs were so swollen and heavy he couldn’t walk more than a few feet without sitting down to rest.

BUT he never gave up and he never gave in.

However, the lack of sleep and the physical pain and stress took its toll and was finally more than his body could take. He had to be placed on life support, hoping it would give his body time to heal enough that he would be able to start chemo and radiation treatments. In the end his body could not fight anymore. His organs started shutting down and they had to stop the life support. He passed away peacefully within a few minutes after life support ended.

The puppy community and the leather and fetish communities have lost a great leader.
