With Bob in tow, we showed up with Sid in his Yoda outfit. You have no idea how many safety pins it took to keep it on him -- even with Mom's custom alterations. Boy was he anxious to be put down and meet the other pooches running around. In all there were about a 100 other pugs there. All in costume and busy saying hello to each other "head to tail".
Sid wasted no time running up to each and every pug he could find. He was so busy meeting new friends, I think he forgot he was tangled up in a Yoda outfit. (Although the ears sure didn't last long.) It was a riot to watch all the pugs chasing and running and eating and sniffing. Definitely a pug free-for-all. Mira had just as much fun chasing the pugs, hugging them and meeting all the fellow owners. There were a few baby pugs that garnered most of her attention.
After a couple hours of the dogs running about, the costume contest began and each pug was paraded around the room for the judges. There sure were a lot of cute outfits! Some people really went all out and
tortured dressed their pug(s) in outrageous homemade costumes.
Sid won "Honorable Mention" for his Yoda outfit, (really, it was his adorableness, I'm sure.) Andrea's pugs Ginger and Bentley won first place for their homemade "Fred and Wilma" costumes.
We had so much fun, (especially Sid.) We'll definitely be showing up for more pug events. There are over a hundred pictures from the day so peek at pugs to your hearts content...
