These are my pug people’s pugs who braved the weather to come out for Pugic!

Ugh, I can’t believe I didn’t get more pictures of Baby Girl! Baby Girl is a SEPRA hospice pug.

Franklin, who would not sit still long enough to get a good picture.

Chloe who was probably the best behaved pug of the entire day. Hugs to Chloe.

Pippa being her usual spoiled self.

Black Jack says R-E-L-A-X!

Tater Tot who is the fluffiest, snuggliest pug!

Rex (red harness) and Max (blue harness) who are brothers, adopted from SEPRA.

Pugnic Volume 2

Some of Pugnic’s activities include a Costume Contest. Here are a few pictures that I snapped…

Emma and Brewster. Royalty.

So another picture of Brewster! He was the most handsome pug there! He got my favorite pug of the day award!

Awwwwww, too cute!

Lola is a rescue. Her mom is making sure she is living the good life that all pugs should live! Hugs to Lola in her pretty dress.

I wish that I’d gotten a better picture. This is Bubba in his Samurai outfit.

Abby in a matching kimono as a Geisha!

Okay, this was a great idea to dress up too!

The Gene Simmons KISS pug in full costume!

Without the mask. Is he not just a lump of love?

Pretty Princess Pug. She was so happy to be pushed around in her chariot.

Not sure if this was really a costume, but I loved the harness!

Pugnic Volume 1

Vendors and open area for pugs to socialize

This was our set up; you know you are diehard pug fans when you come with your own tents!

Pugnic is Music City Pug Rescue’s annual fundraiser. It is an event for pugs and their people with pug friendly vendors, silent auction, pug rescue parade, pug costume contest, pug races, and much more! MCPR puts in so much time, effort, and work into making this event a success. Why? For the pugs! They rescue pugs in Nashville, TN and the surrounding areas to rehabilitate them and re-home them! Rescue pugs come from many places: shelters, owner surrenders, puppy-mill surrenders, and sometimes from the sides of the road. MCPR has foster homes for the pugs to live in while they are being evaluated on their personality, treated for any medical conditions, and while waiting on the right home to come along. The money from Pugnic goes to offset the rising cost of rescuing these pugs!

While this event is rain or shine, some scattered showers and wet ground did not keep away the true pug enthusiast! We came prepared with our tents, tarps, coolers, x-pens, and a good attitude. It is always so great to see the variety of pugs that come to show off their curly tails, crooked smiles, and fun personalities! And their owns who come to support rescue!
