Pug-O-Ween Party

Hi Everyone!

Hubby and I took Ollie and Charlie to the Seattle Pug Rescue's Pug-O-Ween this afternoon. We had a lot of fun. There were so many cute pugs in costumes and without. Pugs are so fun in groups! So much snorfling and heavy breathing. :o)We had been talking about Charlie's costume for several months but poor Ollie got the last minute costume. Ollie wore a cute pumpkin t-shirt, we put it on backwards, so the design was on his back Charlie was a spider-pug. She looked so cute. I bought a stuffed spider decoration at a thrift store. Hubby ran plastic headband through holes in the body and we covered it with a stretchy sock I sewed the sock ends together so it made a belly band with a soft grip. We put her in a black harness and fastened it over the spider. Awesome! Charlie loves her costume. She stood nearby while we worked on it and stood still while we tried it on several times. Ollie didn't seem to mind his shirt, but next time I will sew it up out of the way of the quick draw piddler. By the end of the party his shirt was a bit damp. ;o)
Hubby will be making a spider-pug movie for me soon. These are some of the best photos, it's hard to get a clear photo of wiggly pugs. They are all sniffing and spinning around each other. In the film you will be able to see Charlie work the room. She was very funny, running all around the room visiting people. The party was in a gym and the people had formed a circle around the edges of the gym. Charlie would run in the middle just out of reach, people stretching out to pet her. She was very popular, you could hear people call "spider-pug, spider-pug" as she ran around. It was so much fun!!

On one of her rounds, Charlie stopped by to see the head judge in the costume contest. Charlie won one of the contest prizes. It's a cute little bucket with some treats and toys.

We also got to meet a fellow blogger! We met Joan of Peace Love and Pugs at the party. Joan had a table of beautiful collars and accessories. It was a pleasure to meet Joan. We have been exchanging comments and such. I enjoy Joan's blog and her collars and especially the cute shirt collar and ties are a lot of fun to look at. I think Ollie needs a formal collar soon. It's always fun to meet people you know from the internet. I hope we can do more of it someday.
I hope you all had a nice weekend! :o)
