San Diego Pug Party

I had such an exciting week last week, I didn’t know what to tell you about first. I know you are all waiting anxiously to hear about my time in Santa Barbara, but this past weekend I went to a pug party for Pug Rescue of San Diego where I got to meet the artist Melissa Langer of Pugnotes! It was so exciting and I know she is going to post about this too,so I thought the Santa Barbara trip could wait a few more days…

I really liked her, as you can see! I have mentioned her before. She is the one who made the crochet pug that I was not allowed to eat. Unfortunately her friend Emmitt could not attend this time. But I got to meet plenty of other pugs!

A pack of pugs.

A pug in a nice outfit. (Thank God I did not have to dress up for this event!)

This pug was named Elvis and he was very old. He was just enjoying the ride in his little stroller.

A prizewinning pug. She had on a ribbon, for what I’m not sure, but she had won “honorable mention”. That is Melissa’s art in the background.

Liz thought this pug was the cutest one ever! He was very sleepy and floppy and his mom was carrying him around like a little baby. His name was Cornwallis. His mom said he is blind so his first homes didn’t want him (can you imagine??) but now he has a forever home and it looks like the best place for him!

It was so fun to meet Melissa and her sister Melanie and see all the art. I made some new human friends too, like this one:

What can I say, the ladies love me!

All this attention and excitement made me very sleepy, though.

When we got home, I passed out for the rest of the day–I did not even eat my dinner!

    Hi Henri!
    Melanie and I loved meeting you and your mom and dad. It was the highlight of our whole day!
    You are the coolest Frenchie in the whole world! Thank you so much for coming to the massive Pug Party. We are in the San Diego airport right now. We will post about meeting you as soon as we get home. Please tell Liz and Jon we say hello!

  2. I THOUGHT I saw you in some of Melissa’s pictures, Henri! Glad you had a good time…did you buy any of Melissa’s Frenchie things?:)

    Not this time…Jon liked a mug, but we couldn’t decide on a design so we thought we’d order it later!

    Henri is, without question, the most adorable pup in the world.

    That being said, that senior citizen pug in the carriage is a close second.

    A great post! Looks like it was a great day. No wonder Henri was so exhausted.

    By the way…if he was too tired to eat and fell asleep – isn’t it only fair that he should get double the food the next day – to make up for the “calorie deficit” he would be in? (I’m hoping that by making that argument – Henri will consider hiring me as his attorney/advocate.)

    Henri – where have you been hiding? We are so excited to find your blog – mom is an artist too and used to live in So. California and is also friends with Melissa and Mindy, Elvis’ mommy, in your photos. What a small world! Do you like to pee on stuff like I do, cuz if we had THAT in common, WALE that would just be eerie!
    your new pal,
