Seattle Pug Party 2009


Melissa and Guido :)

We had a fabulous trip to Seattle to attend the Seattle Pug Party on Saturday.

We met so many of our blog and online friends that the whole day became a magical event.

Some of the people who stopped by are Puglette and her family, Connie Conley, Tara Ross, Sabra, Cammie, Winston & Cosette, Joan & Skippy who also had an amazing booth at the party for her amazing company, Linden Line Designs.

Our booth

A happy puggy!


Joan's Skippy Wu




Puglette's Charlie and Ollie




To celebrate a wonderful show and day, Melanie and I went to the Pike Street Market for dinner.

We only had a few hours on Saturday evening to see some of Seattle but we had perfect weather and could not have asked for a better day!







This is a shot of the Space Needle as we zoomed to the airport at 6:00 am Sunday morning. :)



We had a fabulous time in Seattle. As we were leaving the Pike Street Market, I looked down and saw this wonderful bag smiling up at me. I said to myself, what a perfect ending to a perfect day!

Life is Art... Art is Life!

Oh, Melissa! Had I known you were going to be there, I would have definitely made the trip by ferry over to see you! I even rescheduled our regular monthly pug party so our members could come to the Seattle Pug Gala last Saturday.

Dang, dang, double-dang! Maybe next year????????????

Mum used to live in Seattle and she loved the pictures and is so glad you had a wonderful time! And you got to meet Joan and Skippy! We are doing a blog tomorrow about the collar we won from Joan's website. She is such a nice lady. Mum says to tell you the best part of your post was the last picture - found art! (http://www.foundmagazine.com/) There used to be a website for this sort of thing but Mum cannot find it but Found Magazine has a daily fine. Mum loves the lunch sack :)

Love, Dozer, Dottie and Cooper

Hi Melissa,
I could hardly wait to see your new pics of your trip. Wow--- what fun! It looked like HAPPY DAYS to me. All those pictures of the pugs just made me smile. Each and every sweet face, how precious. And I saw Charlie and Ollie- with you- and all the others!
Seattle weather looked perfect, but I bet it is storming now- as it is here in Oregon.
Thank you for bring us all back pictures to see and share in your experience.
Love
tweedles
