Pugtacular is Coming!

The annual pug party hosted by Northern California Pug Club is coming up on Saturday. This year they moved the venue to Walnut Creek, a little closer to us, and a much nicer town. We've been going every year since Bucky was a wee pup, and I've written on this blog for the past two years: 2006 and 2007. Henry wrote his version of the story here: Chapter 1, Chapter 1 (the second half), and Chapter 2. In 2006 Bucky and I won the third place in pug and owner look-alike, after Bucky finally won the race for the first time in a decade. Doesn't the puggie look just like his mom?

This year we are not sure if we'll enter Bucky in the race. He's been a bit stiff lately, hard to get up and run around. Will have to see how he feels on Saturday. Bucky has been a bad dog this week. Had three accidents in as many days, each time right after we let him back into the house. He says it's getting too cold and damp out in the back yard. Bring back the sunshine and he'll bring his business outside.

we've been having the same problem with Miss Meiby... This morning it was so cold that she kept laying down in the snow just to get her freezing feet off of the ground!

Poor Baby, but what a cutie! We went to Slobberfest in the summer with our bassets and it was wonderful. Have fun at Pugtacular!

WOW a pug party, my Milo a part pug would love to join in that kind of party!
my doggies also agree with yours, going potty inside is much nicer when it's so darn cold outside, but yuck on the humans!

I can't believe it's the annual party again already! Time flies so fast.
Hope you had fun, I can't wait to hear/read all about it.

Oh what a cute picture of you too!

I wonder if it is a low to the ground dog thing or what.
Elise will sometimes have an accident if there is too much water or snow in the backyard or, really, even if she just doesn't like the precipitation outside!
