Colorado Pug Rescue – Pugs in the Park 2009

We are so excited! 

The Colorado Pug Rescue’s Pugs in the Park is this Sunday, Sept. 27th from 1-5 pm, at Denver City Park! 

Each year there are hundreds of pugs, people, costumes, food, contests and vendors!
Come and join the party and please stop by and say hello! Melanie, Mark, Fred and I will be there in our Pug Notes Booth. 

All of the funds raised at the party will help the wonderful foster pugs in the care of the Colorado Pug Rescue.
If you cannot attend, but would like to help the Colorado puggies, the CPR 2010 Calendar has just been released and is packed with wonderful pug photos. Each calendar is only $12 and all proceeds will go right to the pugs in need!

Customer Photo Gallery ~ Knox Loves his New Dog Bed!

My friend Janet B. from PA just rescued 3 more puggies to add to her family and now has 7! Bless her heart. She is so wonderful.
A few weeks ago, Janet emailed me to let me know she was going to meet and pick up one pug and she came home with 3. I smiled and knew what happened! She could not leave any of them behind.
Here is Knox who just came home on Saturday. I think he has claimed the new dog bed as his already!
Welcome home Knox, Becca and Butch and thank you Janet for sharing the photo for our Customer Photo Gallery!
I love receiving your feedback, photos and stories! Please feel free to contact me anytime!
I would love to post your pug photos and stories in the Customer Photo Gallery and the Quarterly Newsletter in the Meet The Pugs section.

for the Pug Notes Quarterly Newsletter!
The Fall Newsletter will arrive in your inbox in October. Please sign up to receive your very own copy.
Emmitt and I are already working on it and would love to share his favorite recipe, photos, stories and events! It is jam packed with fun!

Seattle Pug Party 2009

Melissa and Guido 🙂

We had a fabulous trip to Seattle to attend the Seattle Pug Party on Saturday.

We met so many of our blog and online friends that the whole day became a magical event.

Some of the people who stopped by are Puglette and her family, Connie Conley, Tara Ross, Sabra, Cammie, Winston & Cosette, Joan & Skippy who also had an amazing booth at the party for her amazing company, Linden Line Designs.

A happy puggy!

To celebrate a wonderful show and day, Melanie and I went to the Pike Street Market for dinner.

We only had a few hours on Saturday evening to see some of Seattle but we had perfect weather and could not have asked for a better day!

This is a shot of the Space Needle as we zoomed to the airport at 6:00 am Sunday morning. 🙂

We had a fabulous time in Seattle. As we were leaving the Pike Street Market, I looked down and saw this wonderful bag smiling up at me. I said to myself, what a perfect ending to a perfect day!

Life is Art… Art is Life!

San Diego Pug Party 2009


The theme was Rockn’ Through the Ages and it was a blast!

Hundreds of people and pugs turned out for a day filled with contests like a cupcake eating contest, pug kissing contest, costume contest, a huge raffle, all you can eat meatball pug bar and more!

We were so excited to see our friend Mindy and her pugs, Elvis and Dandy.

Our friends Liz & Jon brought their frenchie, Henri Hopper, and their new baby boy, Noah, to the party. We were so excited to see them!

I also want to thank all of you for playing with Emmitt while I was away! Your special posts, comments and photos all made me happy and laugh out loud. I am very lucky to have you as friends!

Speaking of fun things…

I just added some new Tabs to Pug Notes and Dog Art Studio to make getting to the 4 Pug and Dog Art Galleries even easier.

  1. Pug Art
  2. Dog Art
  3. Holiday Art

I know tabs might sound like a funny thing to be smiling about, but I’m kind of weird that way. 🙂

What small things make you smile during your day? I would love to know!
