Halloween might as well become a Pug High Holiday, because few things bring on the joy for pug people more than putting their furry loved ones into costumes.
To celebrate the occasion – and to raise a bit of money for the rescue pugs who so often need medical care – Pugalug Pug Rescue holds not one, but TWO Pugoween events in and around our area.
I couldn’t pick which of the two events I wanted to go to, so I went to BOTH! There were so many fun and amazing costumes to share with you, so this will have to be a two-part post, but I don’t think you’ll mind much.
Ever see a Stegopug?
Well, now you have.
A certain cowboy doesn’t look like he’s enjoying the song that his handsome steed is singing.
Some pugs take dressing up in stride, and simply soak up the love that looking extra cute brings.
Miss Puggy became impatient to have her photo taken. So in character!
Pug people are typically a warm and welcoming bunch, and all friendly dogs are welcome to become honourary pugs for the day.
But even honourary pugs need a break from the costume fun sometimes.
Some more so than others.
Little Oscar here was scared by a witch, and then a lobster pug sent him over the edge, so he spent the afternoon cuddled up with his Auntie in the foyer. (Oscar did not like his costume one bit, so he came au naturel)
Little Josephine grew some spooky wings for the day.
The Puparazzi even came along!
And we can’t leave this post without paying due respect to this most creative and hilarious costume….
Someone doesn’t look too impressed with his lot in life.
After the judging was over, the running around and the playing started to wind up, and the pugs started to go home to their soft beds.
Bella looked a bit over it all…or perhaps she was sad that the party was over for another year.
But don’t worry, beautiful girl! There’s another Pugalug Pugoween happening in the next post. The fun has just started!
Have you picked out a favourite pug costume?
