Last weekend I took Mister Truffles along to the The West Pennine Pug Dog Club Garden Party at Sandbach. I had heard from other Pug owners what fun it is and had never managed to go so this year I was on a mission and I'm so glad I did.

|The event had a real festival vibe, except pugs replaced glow sticks and bands|
Pugs are such loving dogs, their owners are their world, Mister Truffles is like my shadow so the thought of someone being less than kind to this gorgeous breed is just very depressing. What is uplifting though is all the people involved in this event who have taken these raggle taggle pugs into their hearts and homes.

This was without doubt the most pugs I have ever seen in one place, it was almost surreal. What I love about pugs is how different they all look, sure they are all small with flat faces and curly tails but some are pure faun, some are almost silver, some jet black, others flecked with grey. Its the same with their size some are petite and dainty and some (like Mister Truffles) are lovable chunks, what they all share though is just bags of character.

The day comprised of various fun events including the pugolympics (where Mister Truffles did us proud with a clear run on the relay field bagging himself a red rosette) musical statues (which was so funny as pugs just don't really do what they are told so either ignored being told to sit when the music stopped or lay on the ground for a nap) and my favourite event the fancy dress section.The creativity and pure daftness exhibited was just hilarious.Pugs dresses as ghost busters, Princesses, hot dogs and cupcakes.
They do call Pugs the clowns of the dog world and watching them all strutting along its hard to argue.I would have loved to have entered Mister Truffles but he hates any kind of head wear and tends to eat costumes so we decided to leave it.

Not that he was without swag, oh no Mister Truffles wore his Doctor Who inspired velvet bow tie collar and because it was a bit chilly and wet (and he hates the rain) his leopard print coat.He was so good, in fact all the dogs were. They are a daft gentle breed who seem to attract devoted slightly eccentric owners.I spoke to so many lovely people from all different walks of life all with one thing in common, a love of pugs.

It was a wonderful afternoon which hopefully raised lots of money for a very worthwhile cause.
