The Puglebrity Life

Yesterday we went to the Indy 500 Festival of Pugs in Indiana. It was pawesomeeee! Mom and Dad were really excited to take me and Dixie. Although Daddy let Dixie drive. She's on medication... she probably shouldn't be allowed to operate heavy machinery.

We entered in the costume contest. We went as the "Pugliest Catch" fisherpugs. Right before we went on, Mommy found a crab toy at one of the booths at the festival, which really added to our look.

Guess what- WE WON!!!!!

Well. Okay. We were the only ones in the GROUP costume catagory. So we had to win. Here is the picture of the winner of the single-entry costume category.

He sat down on the red carpet... he was not happy at all we think. He probably wished he was a cool fisherpug like us.

Then Mommy saw some of her favorite puglebrities (Pug-Celebrities, duh!) First she ran into Pixie. She saw Pixie before at the last pug event!

I was super jealous, Mommy was giving her all the attention! Bugg was playing with Pixie's two brother Buggs (yes, there are more BUGGS like dah Bugg) so I just kind of sat there and looked cute. Then Mommy ran over to the adoptable pug area because she heard that BUSTER was there!!!!

Buster is blind still but now in amazing spirits and much healthier than the last time she wrote about him. He's a chunker and was hard to take a picture of. Mommy says he was super sweet though. She really hopes someone special will adopt him.

We had such a good time and can't wait till the next event. There is one coming up in the fall in Kentucky and Mommy and Daddy might make a weekend of it in Louisville... that would be PAWESOMEEEEEE!!!! I hope you all have fun plans for stuff like we do through KPR!

Congrats on your win, guys! The event looks like it was a blast. I wish we had those here where I live, but there just aren't that many pugs!

Love the yellow raincoats! We are going to PugsGiving next month & they have a costume contest as well. Winston is going as the fisherman and our friend Moyo is going as a lobster. I hope we win.
