Kentuckiana Pug Rescue - The 500 Festival of Pugs

Hi everyone!!  Ellie here to tell you all about the fun day I had at the 500 Festival of Pugs - this is a fundraising event for Kentuckiana Pug Rescue, which is where I came from!  Unfortunately, dad had to work so mama decided to take just me to the event.  Don't worry about Yoda & Brutus missing out because they thought it was grand that they had a day without me at home!!

Just a warning that this post is going to be heavy on the pictures.

The first thing we did was scope out the raffle baskets.

There were some really nice raffle baskets - we did win one, but mom failed to get a picture of it.

There were lots of vendors there too...

Pugs in the Kitchen was there with their yummy treats (ok, mom is part of Pugs in the Kitchen, so I am a little biased...)  100% of the proceeds from sales went directly to KPR!!

There were all kinds of contests too!  Banana eating, curliest tail, costume contests, pug races, etc....  Mom only entered me in the pug race and I successfuly defended my title of Pug Race Champion for the under 1 category!!

There were some non-pug guests that showed up too :)

Come on...  why are we stopping???

Oh ok, we can stop and watch the agility demonstration.  This reminded us of our furiend Brutus & Carmen.

This is our friend Zoe... you can see her and her siblings at A Day in the Life of Pugs...

Oh no, whats this - mom tricked me into getting a nail trim!!

There was free microchipping with admission to the event...  Here are some doggies getting their micropchips.

Here I am helping out mom at the donations table...  don't let my face fool you - I am simply using my mind powers to get people to donate (this requires me to look like I am sleepy).

our new furiend Mia was there (She now owns Angel Lilo's mom)

It was a long but fun day...

  17. Cute overload!! We love that little one that looks like a pug/pomeranian mix! And mean Mom for tricking you with the nail trim! I hate it when that happens!


  18. Hi EllieGirl!

    I apologize for the slackerness of my secretary for not posting/commenting sooner. Administrative corrective actions have been taken and we expect to see marked improvement immediately!

    We're so sorry that we missed you at the 500Fest this year! The hoomans had like 993938573738 other things going on that same weekend and mom couldn't figure out how to clone herself in time.

    We hope a LOT of treatable money was made for the KPR puggies that need it!

    You just get CUTER every freakin DAY!!!!

    Tell Mom you need some POLISH on your toesies after that pawticure! OPI has some great new fall colors that would look FABULOUS on you!
