March in the Pugs (and Flat Brutus!)

Hi everyone! We're a few days behind with posting (sorry!) but we wanted to share pics from last Saturday's March In the Pugs! Mom made us all get up at the butt-crack of dawn to drive over to Zionsville to work it for KPR!

First on the agenda was the actual MARCH of the rescued Pugs! All these sweeties have found homes though KPR and are now living in the laps of luxury (and peoples) like all Pugs should!

Holden helped "Pug-sit" for the PugPosse and walked GusGus and Eddie in the parade!

Here is Vikki (from the Pug Posse) with Eli and their newest addition...ROMEO! That's Sam and Bernice behind Vikki.

Julie, Rita and Bill from The Pug Corral with Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark and their NEWEST KPR rescue...Payton Annie the Bugg!

Here's Heather from Say It Don't Spray It (and my future MIL) with Low Rider Lola

Our assignment was to work the Puggy Bake Sale table full of homemade treats! I was an excellent salesman with Mom and Holden!

We also brought along a special guest.....FLAT BRUTUS!!!!

Yeah, we know he's not a Pug....but Frenchies are partners in smushfacedom, so we thought he might like some banana puppycakes!

He was WORKIN' that bake sale!

He worked the KISSING BOOTH too!!!!

He visited Annie and Sarah working the Pug Health Zone table!

We thought it was VERY appropriate to feature Brutus with the Dental products, since his mommy is a dentist!

Brutus visited the auction table and scoped out the two most coveted items.....

A "PugNotes" original print from Melissa and Emmitt (THANK YOU FOR SENDING THIS!!!!)

and the SWEETEST little puggy outfit made by PUNCHY! (THANK YOU FOR SENDING TOO!)

Both items had a TON of tickets in the raffle bags! YAY! We aren't sure who won these (we had to leave after our shift) but we're sure both went to a very good home!

Mom thought this was pretty cool and said that it's the "two BRUTI" (plural of Brutus...duh!)

Brutus the Pug and Flat Brutus the Frenchie!

Mom took me to visit the Royal Canin booth and thank them for making good food that doesn't make me hurl like my old food did!

Holden got REALLY creative and decided to do some MOBILE sales! He even wore mom's Puggy apron (from Heather and Harry!) to make himself more visible!

His ingenuity and humiliation raked in quite a bit of $$! Yay Holden!

The HIGHLIGHT of our day had to be Daddy and I WINNING the "Pug/Owner LOOK ALIKE contest!!!"

It was pretty easy...Daddy just made his best "tragic face" and he was apparently a shoe-in for first place!!!!

We had a great time and loved that so many of our friends and fellow crazy Pug people came out to support KPR! THANK YOU EVERYONE! We see that KPR has a cool Flicker album posted (click here) with MORE pics!

BTW....if you weren't able to attend, but have a big wad of money lying around (or even a very small wad of money!)...KPR can always use help for the many Puggies in it's care! Just CLICK HERE and donate!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Check out the photo of Daddy and I from the Indy Star (newspaper!)

Oh that looks like fun! We're so thankful that so many great ppl go together to help puggies and other doggies in the countries where it's needed!


Apollo said...

We had a blast with all ya'll!

I want you to know that my Mommy and I were very mad that we didn't even place in that Pug and Owner look-alike contest. Mommy even said "What, am I not Asian enough?!." The people running the contest were like "Ooops, uhhhh..." and ended up giving us "Honorable Mention."

Mommy bought some of your treats. They were yummy! I hope you were able to sample ours. Tell Holden that he rocks the pink rhinestones. Haha!

Hank said...

Sal, buddy.....(munch, crunch)....those treats yer brother served (smack, lick) ROCK the casbah!

Oh,' MITP wuz (nom, nom, nom) fun, too!


Smushie Ranch said...

Okay Sal,

First off, up at the butt crack of dawn. How's are you supposed to get any beauty sleep?

Where was the red carpet for when the puggers came marchin' in?

And ya know how much I loves Mr. Holden. But Sal, ya gotta tell your mother to get him a more manly apron. I mean at least one that isn't pink. I'm just sayin'.

houndstooth said...

That party looks like tons of fun! We're glad to hear the fundraiser was successful, too! We totally would've bought treats from Holden in that apron!


Sonic said...

Wow that looked like tons of fun! So many pugs, so many human-friends! And of course, the guest frenchie!

Good work, guys!

Hope you had fun

BRUTUS said...

Hey there! Sorry I'm so late posting... Mom had to work again today. Looks like Flat Brutus was a guest of honor with the pugs & their folks! I always have felt like an honorary pug, and now even more so having been to a meetup!! I'll get you posted/linked up by tomorrow morning - thanks for playing along!!

Holden was rockin' that apron! Wanted to tell you that the treats your mom made were delicious :)

It was great seeing you and we had tons of fun too.

Love the picture of the Bruti!

Hi Holden,

Well it looks like waking up early was worth it... you got tons accomplished!

We love Royal Canin, the only food that mom feeds us as we have very delicate bellies.

That flat Brutus got around a lot! The kissing booth??? Really??? Calvert wants to know where he can score some of that action too.

Have a great weekend!


Stubby said...

Salinger dude! You always do the coolest things even if you do have to get up at the butt crack of dawn. I need my sleep and nothing except food gets me out of bed before the birds.

Congrats to you and your dad for winning the look alike contest. I love the pics!

Stubby xoxo
