This past weekend, Ali and I went to Pugapalooza to see a bunch of other pugs and their people raise money for APARN. APARN is the Arizona Pug Adoption and Rescue Network. Pugapalooza is an annual fundraising even that they put on that attracts pug lovers from all over the valley. I have had to work every time it has been held since I can remember (since moving here from Indiana.) This year, I lucked out! (So did Ali!) We got to go, and we had so much fun! Check it out:
Ali was super excited to meet some new friends!
Look at all of the puggly wugglies!!
Bosco was so stinkin’ cute and active!! He has degenerative disc disease and just got his cart this past year, if I remember correctly. This is a great example of how a disabled pug (or any other dog for that matter) can live a happy, healthy life with a little bit of assistance. It is such a huge pet peeve of mine when people make fun of sweet little things like this and say they should be put down. He is vivacious and social and just adorable!!
Look at Bosco and this little cowboy! Or is he a sheriff….
Yes, Ma’am, I am your sheriff….
Ali being a little social butterfly
What an adorable snort-tastic family!
My attempt at getting Ali to pose with them…at least she smiled!
Too cute not to post
Mommy I had so much fun! Will you take me back next year? Maybe we can get me a sister or brother!
