1000 Pugs!

Hard to believe it has been two weeks since we made the trek to Milwaukee for PugFest!!  What I didn't tell you yet is that the Monday after PugFest was my supermodeling debut!!  Yes, I am pug #439 for the 1000 Pugs photoshoot!!

We got up bright and early and made our way to the north side of Milwaukee and to Lake Park .  We got notice that the photoshoot would be taking place at North Point Lighthouse.  Mom was ecstatic about this since she loves lighthouses!!

Mia and her mama :)

The one and only Puglet!!  He showed off some of his modeling skills....  He is sooo handsome!!

I have to admit that I was a bit starstruck by Puglet...

Just look at him - he had caught sight of his human and was watching her intently.

Tiffy's mom was there too, but mom didn't get any photos with her.  

It was finally my turn to show off my super-modeling skills.  Now, mom may tell you that I barked non-stop while Miss Amanda was taking pictures of me...  I will tell you that I was just trying to tell Miss Amanda how excited I was to be part of this project!!

The only place I would stay put was right between mom's legs.  I know that mom didn't want to be left out, so I made sure that at least her legs would be in the photos...

A big thank you to Miss Amanda and Puglet for making this experience such a great one!!

Alas, my photo-shoot was over way too soon and it was Mia's turn for the photo-shoot.

While we waited, mom and I wandered around and she took photos.  

Mom just loves this one she took with the sun behind the lighthouse.

We also took some more time to visit with Puglet

I tried to get him to notice me, but I think I just may be too young for him...

Puglet did seem to like my mama...  he sat on her lap for a bit and just chilled.

Look at my excitement about getting to sit with Puglet on mama's lap!

A little bit about the lighthouse.

Mom just loves these two pics of the lighthouse.  She wants to have one or both of them framed.

My turn :)

We had a fantastic time and can hardly wait to see the results of my photo-shoot.  In the meantime, I will be dreaming about handsome Puglet...


  1. What fantastic pictures, Ellie! I love lighthouses, too, though I've never been to that one (yeah, I know, and I'm only 90 miles away!). You certainly rocked the camera, and how cool that you got to meet Puglet in the fur!

  2. awesome! i can't wait to see your picture either! we did our shoot at the beginning of april and i've been trying to forget so i don't check my inbox obsessively. i wonder if anyone has gotten to see theirs yet?

  3. We are so jealous that you got to meet Amanda and Puglet in the furs! Puglet is a big boy compared to you, Ellie.

    The photos your Mom took are beautiful. She should see the light house photos!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie, Mack and foster Mario

    My mom likes lighthouses, too, but her faves are in Maine. She's been wantin' tuh drag me out east fer a while now, but I'm just too dang tired these days.

    Keep on livin' large, honey!

  5. So cool, your pictures will be amazing!
