500 Festival of Pugs!!

We were so excited yesterday - we got to go to the 500 Festival of Pugs!!  This was a fundraising event for Kentuckiana Pug Rescue.

On our way!  Ellie was very excited since she knew she was going to see her Auntie Annie (she is the one who bottle fed Ellie and her siblings when their mother could not take care of them)
Ellie - "are we there yet??!!"
 Our buddy Jax - he was enjoying a braided rope from Pugs In The Kitchen.

There were all kinds of dogs at the event, like this Poodle (Ellie didn't care for the big dogs and kept barking at them).

And there was this guy - his name was Bosco and he really loves stuffies!  He jumped up and grabbed it, wouldn't let go and was just hanging around.

Ahhh, success!!

This is Mr. Claude

Eli of the Pug Posse.

Penny is a foster pug - she is such a pretty girl but is a bit shy yet.

Bosco and his sister Olive

Meet Ozzie, he is another foster pug from KPR.  He was working the crowd for donations - he suffered heat stroke a couple of weeks ago and had to be hospitalized. He recovered from the heat stroke but it caused some additional issues that will have ongoing medical costs.

This girl was just so cute in her new tutu!

Here I am keeping dad company

Salinger, his brother Toby and his peeps were there too!


Ellie was relaxing for a bit (she says it's tough being as cute as she is.... whatevs...)

This is how you do cute!!

Our furiend Zoe

Zoe and her sister Liberty (mom failed to get pics of their brothers Peyton & Webster)

Some pugs waiting for that special someone to find and adopt them...

Apollo getting some belleh rubs 

Ellie was showing off the jersey that Webster got for her....  She thinks it's pretty nice, but since it isn't a Chicago Bears Jersey, I don't think much of it....

Auntie Jess was there with Mia!!

Hey mom, you gonna get us some treats or what??

 On our way home - Ellie passed out...

I took a nap on the way home too...

Ellie's butt made a good pillow...

We hope everyone had as good of a weekend as we did!!


  1. Wow, it sure looks like you all had a great time! And it was good to see a pic of Apollo since his mom doesn't seem to do the bloggy anymore and isn't on the Facebook thingy. I'm surprised Ellie didn't do a faceplant in that last picture - all you needed was one quick break and Brutus's pillow would be on the floor face first! And that cute little face of Ellie's doesn't need to be smooshed any more than it already is!! Thanks for sharing your fun day!

  2. cuteness overload! Hope every buddy went home with the right pawrents
    Snuggles and snorts
    Benny & Lily

  3. Hi everybuddy,

    It looks like you two had a terrific time at the festival. Lots of smooshy faced doggies for you to meet. Mom likes that dog Bosco, she says he is just like me and my stuffies!

    Bijou and Banjo

  4. What a wonder-fur day you guys had. But poor Ozzie and the heat stroke. Not good! Hope he's gonna be Okee-Dokee real soon with no after-effects.
