Pug Gala

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Mother's Day. We celebrated Mother's Day yesterday with hubby's mom at the Seattle Pug Gala.

We had a lot of fun and saw old friends and new ones. And of course, we saw lots of pugs!

There were little pugs, big pugs and brindle pugs.

Pugs had on sunglasses and some wore hats. We even saw the great pumpkin!

Joan from Peace Love and Pugs was there with her fabulous Linden Line Designs. I didn't get a picture of Joan...sorry Joan! But please check out her store, she makes all of the wonderful collars and harnesses herself.

And look who else was there...Melissa from Life is Art, Art is Life! She brought her sister Melanie too.

Melissa and Melanie are two of the nicest, sweetest women I have ever met. So kind and friendly. I wish we could have spent more time visiting but their booth was a busy place. Melissa had brought along a lot of her items from Pug Notes. I now have a large and small Emmitt pillow and will treasure them always. Melanie brought some of her adorable bears and animals from her Etsy Shop, ShopMoeMoe. I now have this cutie to remind me of meeting Melanie.

After our fun at the Pug Gala we went for lunch at a fish and chips place called Steamer's. This place has a spectacular view of the Puget Sound and the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. I will try to get some photos from there to share because I forgot the camera this time.

We had a wonderful Mother's Day outing. I hope you have all been able to spend some time with your favorite Mom's.

Big hugs to everyone!
