Wonderful Weekend!!!!

So Saturday was the was the KPR 500 Festival of Pugs fundraiser!!!! We went and spent the day with the Pug Posse and the Pugs Strike Back. We had a lot of fun and raised money for a good cause.

I entered a few of the contests. I entered the Best Shedder contest and came in dead last. I was soundly beat by our good friend Pippin. He shedded a puppy or two!!! I also entered the Popsicle Eating contest and again got beat. I don't understand why I have eat it on the stick =(

Last but not least, the momma entered me in the Costume Contest.

I dressed up as the magnificent Minnie Pearl in a FABULOUS dress and hat by Punchy at Pugpossessed. The momma picked out the dress from Punchy's Etsy shop with a gift certificate from our wonderful friend Clover!!!!

I was the prettiest, prettiest pug if I do say so myself!! I worked the red carpet like a pro and won the hearts of the wonderful judges!!!

The momma also bought me a new harness and 5, yes 5, new collars from Sew Doggone Cute!!! They have such cute patterns and momma loves their stuff. I will be one stylin pug =) I don't have as many as Brutus yet, but I'm working on it =)

They always have lots of fun raffles to raise money for the puggies and this time, the momma won the bestest basket!!! They raffled off a basket that had a picture by Emmitt's mommy Melissa!!!! It has the black pug licking the fawn pug =) I'm pretty sure the momma dropped about half of her tickets into that one bag. The momma was so happy!!!

After a long, but wonderful day, I was wiped out. I was so tired, that I didn't even let the momma take my dress off before I passed out.

I slept all the way home. After unloading the car and grabbing my dinner, we headed to the Posses house to hang so the parents could have dinner and we puggies could rest.
On Sunday, the momma, daddy and the Posse parents went to the State Fair. Unfortunately, they do not allow puggies at the fair. The momma figured since we had already been kicked out of one fair, we probably shouldn't push our luck. But I was good hanging at home with Madie and the kitties. It was to darn hot out there for a pug!!! I like my air conditioning, thank you very much =)
They had a hot, but fun day. The daddy tried the new fair food this year, chocolate covered bacon. I guess that's one way to keep the puggies from eating all the bacon =P The daddy said it was good, the momma just shook her head.

The momma and I wrapped up a wonderful weekend with me drooling on her tummy while she at some cashews. Can't believe she didn't share!!! Kept mumbling something about not sure if they were good for me or not. What is she talking about, everything is good for me!!!!!
Hope all of our friends had a great weekend. Please send lots of Pug love and kisses to Hank's sister Molly O'Mally. She had to have emergency surgery last night!!!! She is at home recovering. So Hank, you be nice to her!!! =)
Until next time . . .
Pug Love & Kisses

Hi Lilo,

Sorry you lost the eating and shredding contest but winning the best costume contest was way better anyway! You make a really cute Minnie Pearl. Mom is still smiling!

We had a fun time on Saturday too! It was good to see you again. You make a great Minnie Pearl and are very adorable in your dress.

Bijou said...

Hi Lilo,

I had to come back over after visiting Yoda & Brutus to say I thought you meant shredding contest when you really did mean shedding contest! BOL Please explain how they judge this?
