I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and Mother's Day. We had lovely weather both days and had lots of fun.
Saturday was the 15th Annual Seattle Pug Rescue's Pug Gala! I think there were a million cute pugs running around the park that day. The sun was shining and there was a lovely breeze, what a great day to party with friends and pugs.
I was really excited to attend this party as I was going to see Melissa and Melanie again and I was going to meet Tweedles and her moms. I quickly spotted Melissa as she was looking at the other vendors and taking pug photos. I gave her a big hug and told her I would be over at her booth to visit.
We stopped by the Seattle Pug Rescue table to meet and visit with a nice woman named Sandi who has approved us to be rescue volunteers. We are really excited about this and hope to help out soon. Since we have four doggies at home already we have decided to be short term, emercency foster parents and transport drivers. Hubby travels all across the state frequently and I can help with shorter trips and vet visits. We are ready to help puggies in need.
Next, off to see Melissa and Melanie and see their wonderful array of items for sale. I love all of Melissa's items. She has hand made items like stuffies and her well known sweater vests. The sweaters are so soft and bright in all the yummy colors. Melanie had a big basket of her hand made treasures as well. Her little bears are so soft and cuddly.
While stopping at Melissa's booth I noticed a cute little puggie girl in one of Melissa's sweater vests. I immediately knew who that sweet baby was...Tweedles!!! Tweedles is so tiny and petite. She is just as adorable in person as she is on her blog. I got to meet her family and friends. Her moms are so sweet and warm. I felt the instant friendship that comes from reading blogs. What a pleasure to finally meet some of my favorite bloggers and to have a face to remember when reading the fabulous poems and stories.
Charlie's Grandma attended the party as well. She took off with Charlie and we did not see them for hours! It is understandable, if you have a pug at a pug party you just get absorbed in the fun. Grandma hung out near the agility display area and chatted with the people she knew.
This was a great party as we met new and old friends and surrounded ourselves in puggie goodness. I can honestly say I don't know of any other dog breed that can have a huge party like this without having dog fights and growling and barking from the attendees. The pugs and their people are all happy and friendly.
After the pug party the fun continued. I will have to save that for another post. See you back here on Thursday!
