After years of monthly pug meet ups, you start to run out of things to do and places to go with you pug(s). Chattanooga Pugs had a special treat for March; we had a Scrub-A-Pug Party at Hot Dawg Self-Service Dog Wash. The owners of Hot Dawg have a pug and invited us for ½ price baths for our pugs and a Mexican dinner for us. Yes, not only did we get to have a fun party, but we left with clean pugs! I think that we had close to 20 pugs and I know that they had a blast! Lola, Teddy, & Baby Girl were exhausted from getting a bath and from playing with the other pugs & people! Big thanks for Hot Dawg Self-Service Dog Wash for their generosity and hospitality. Check out their website at

Chattanooga Pugs raise money for Pug Rescue

Along with our Purple Pug Party, we had a Penny fundraiser. I know that times are tough, but there are always pugs coming into rescue and medical bills piling up. Each and every penny, nickel, and dime is helpful to offset the escalating costs that rescues face each day. There are two pug rescue groups that operate in the Chattanooga area to help need and homeless pugs: Southeast Pug Rescue & Adoption and Mid-Atlantic Pug Rescue. Each of these organizations relies on a network of volunteers and foster homes to help save pugs and pug mixes. This year, with the help of all of our Chattanooga Pug members, we raised $100.00 which will be divided among the two groups. If you are interested in volunteering, fostering, or donating to either of these organizations please visit:

Potty Accident at Pug Play Date

Saturday, January 3rd, 2009

P1030604 Baby Girl

Originally uploaded by janahallpapa

The first Saturday of each month is designated as Chattanooga Pug’s Play Date. Since January is historically yucky weather, we have our pug gathering at Bone Appétit located at 103 Frazier Ave, Chattanooga, TN. The owners, Kathy & Joan, are always so gracious to let us come invade their store for a couple of hours with a bunch of snorting pugs! Also, they are so generous and have fresh baked treats available for our babies. This year, I decided to take Baby Girl since she has only been to one other pug meet up and has never been to Bone Appétit. I admit, I was running a little late to get there, but I did take Baby Girl outside to potty before we left the house. There were only 4 other pugs there, which was a low turn out, but good so that BG did not get too excited. She and Pippa greeted each other and were off to explore the store and all the new smells. They have tons of doggie treats and the most adorable gift items. Well, inevitably, Baby Girl took the biggest poop right in the store! Luckily, it was towards the back of the shop and I could quickly scoop it up. I am sure I was about 8 shades of red from embarrassment! Then Baby Girl proceeded to pee pee on a cat toy at the front of the store! Needless to say, I was completely embarrassed at this point. I borrowed some paper towels to clean up out little piddle, but I felt compelled to buy the toy that my pug had just pee’d on. I am not sure what I am going to do with a cat toy since we have all dogs, but thankfully, it was on sale! (Maybe I can give it to my Mom’s cats and they won’t notice?) It is kind of a funny story, but one that I hope we don’t repeat again! We appreciate everyone at Bone Appétit for their support for our Pug Meet Up so please visit them and get your canine friend some yummy treats!
