Pug-O-Ween 2006

Every October the DFW Pug Rescue puts on their annual Pug-O-Ween show to help raise money for vet bills and such.   This is probably their biggest fund raiser, and it's worth coming out to see the show.  Dani and I took our then-foster Lady to it and we met up with several of Dani's friends/coworkers who brought their pug as well.  Here are a few of the many pictures I took of the great costumed pugs (and sometimes their owners).
Pugs are not known for their bravery.

They are, however, very patient with their owners.


This pug will never again ask for a bedtime story.

It's a "black guy" affair.

Damn, that's a lot of wasabi!

She was too drunk to notice her top was on backwards as she made her way home from the beach party.

This rarely-seen behind-the-scenes photo gives you some idea just how great the special effects in Ben Hur really were.

Just like bees, technically pugs shouldn't be able to fly either.

It is best to stay close to the ground if there's a lot of smoke.

Since the original film was in black and white, it is difficult for anyone to appreciate the work of the make-up artists.

A few more donuts and he'll be into character.

Whoa!  Even Keith Richards made time to stop by!

I don't remember this fairy tale.

Surely you jest!

Some would say we baby our pugs a bit too much.  Well, okay.  Maybe just a bit.

Tabloids paid a fortune for this candid shot of Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst on the set.
