Hmmm .....

These are canon pixma (inkjet/multifunction) printer drivers grouped by release versions. They have been rebuilt from source for the puppy platform. Canon driver sets v2.90 & v2.80 have been patched for cups backend naming compliance. The backend drivers will work with any CUPS version. The original backends were named cnij_usb and CUPS 1.3.x+ will reject backends with underscores. The patched usb backend (included in all driver pets here) is basically the same to the ones in canon common v3.00 driver.

CUPS Canon bjnp wireless connectivity v0.5.4 [download]
Usage notes:
i) For canon models with wireless interface
ii) For use with canon driver sets v3.00 and below
iii) CUPS Requirements: 1.3.x and above
iv) Note: Only supports CUPS 1.2 and above,
. but actual support is determined during compilation.
. The module here was compiled with CUPS 1.3.10 ...
v) Firewall: If you are unable to see the printer listed,
. you may have to open canon bjnp ports 8611, 8612,
. 8613 and 8614 (all tcp/udp).

Try this one. If it doesn't work, you can send Patriot a PM and he will re-upload his version.
