Our First ValenPug Party!

We are going to take a short break from our coverage of the Vancouver Games to tell you all about the fun day we had at ValenPugs!

Since Mom was too lazy tired to ski today, we begged her to take us to the NIPRA ValenPugs Party. Fortunately, she did not have enough time to give us a bath, so we got to attend with our stink on. We were soooooo excited, especially because there were some  very special pugs we would get to meet!

When we ran into a posse of pugs on the way into K-9Playtime,  we knew it would be a really fun party. 
It was so exciting to see soooo many otherPugs, but also a little overwhelming.   We spent alot of time hanging out near Mom and Honey's feet.  There were lots of little crazy pug puppies running around  inciting chases and causing other mischief.     Some of the senior pugs thought it was funny to hang out around the edges and watch these sillies tire themselves out.

All the pugs were dressed up for the party.   Some had colorful collars, others had dresses or t-shirts, and one even had a special silky Chinese outfit in honor of the Chinese New Year!

And finally, we got to meet some of our bloggies friends!      We kept hearing her name, but it took a while to find Rainey. She was sooo adorable and petite.   She was wearing a Princess shirt, and we could not have thought of a better was to describe her.
But it did not take long at all to find this guy. Something about his snappy hand-crocheted vest!
It was Stubby !! wearing his very own PugNotes creation. Everyone was jealous of his adorable sweater vest, made by Emmitt's Mom.   Clearly, he was quite pround of his stylin' outfit.  But Stubby is no spring-pug, so he was pretty happy to hang out with his Dad and watch the excitement.
A couple of the pugs at the party were wearing t-shirt or tags letting people know that they were available for adoption.  For a while, it made me sad to think about a pug with no furever family to go home with. But we know that NIPRA places so many pugs (like my sister Fuji) in good homes, I felt better right away.
After a while, I felt comfortable enough to roam around and check out some of the other people and pugs.   We even got our picture take by the photographer. I have to say, I was getting a lot of puglove from the hoomans, see: 

Foo doesn't get around quite as nimbly as I do, but she sure worked the crowd.     Everyone was charmed by her sweet face (except me, of course.)

In fact, she was kind a scratch-whore if you ask me.....
We had such a fun time, we could barely stay awake in the car on the way home!

Thanks NIPRA for hosting such a fun event!

And I am so tired from this exciting day, that I'm crawling into my nice, cozy crate for the night.

Love, Gen & the Foo

Ah man, we never get to go to parties like that! There's a pug party once a month around here, but they whoop it up at a park where they don't have a fence or nothin' so the parents says we're not allowed to go 'cause there's cars nearby. Hmpf.

Looked like you two had a lot of fun. Next time, bring your party out here.

Thank you for stopping by Hank's blog, and I like your idea of GreatPugFriends. Although, I think Stubby and I might become "great pug friends"! :D
