I Left My HEART in SF . . .

Sunday September 2, 2012
Alta Park in PacHeights overlooking the Marina and Alcatraz

We had the best adventure EVER on Sunday. We went to Pug Sunday in San Francisco. It is probably one of the BEST known pug gatherings in Nor Cal. We do not often go because the City is over an hour's drive away (GA$) and parking is always an i$$ue there as well. But Mommy #2 was determined to go this time and she DID NOT tell me why.
 First she loaded my crate into the car. I love when she does this because it means we are going on an adventure.
Doesn't this look comfy? Close to my Mommys and
I can see what's going by. I love my CAR CRATE.
Then, pretty early in the morning we took off in Pugsley, our car, destined for the City By The Bay. It was a nice and uneventful drive. The weather was perfect - sunny with blue skies all around the bay. Whispers of fog nestled on the beaches and ocean making the breeze cool. Perfect for PUGS.

We got to the park early - only got lost once. But Mommy #2 had allowed plenty of time to find the place and to find parking. She needn't have worried. There was a lot of parking when we got there (but not 30 minutes later).

We did not see anyone we knew there. There were about 3 or 4 pugs there but none I knew.

But by 1:30 I knew EVERYPUGGY! It was amazing. Tiffy was there, Bellatrix was there, Noodle & Mochi were there, Zoey & Phoebe were there, Ellie was there, Gertie was there, Honey Kate was there, Puglet & Dutch were there, Atlas was there, Miko (a new FURiend) was there . . . and I heard Rufus from Sacramento was there too but I didn't see him. 

Well, watch this video and you will see EVERYPUGGY and some human backs, legs and feet.

Best of all - Angel Payton's parents were there!!! I got to meet them and get hugs and kisses from them! And I got treats from them. And I wanted to go HOME with them (not really, but kinda). What I DIDN'T do is get a picture of me with them. Booo.

Did Someone say T-R-E-A-T????

Tomorrow I will post pictures of my FURiends (the ones I can recognize).

Wow Noodles i can't believe you got to see so many of your friends...i bet that was the best sunday ever for you...plus treats...what more could you ask for noodles....well maybe that i could have been there beside you...people would probably have mistaken me for you and vice versa since we are the same height and weight don't you think so..heck your mom might have put me in your crate and taken me home instead...well probably not....sorry I got a little carried away...

Noodles, I am so bummed we never saw you. Right before we left Cory yelled out, "Is there a Noodles in the house?", but there was no answer. :(

This looks like it was lots of fun! Also, I think I am going to forever use the term "everypuggy" in place of "everybody" from here on out. You are so cute!

Aww hello there Noodles! I stumbled upon your blog today and I must say that pugs are my favorite dogs. Sadly though I do not have a pug friend of my own yet. I live in a "no pets allowed" apartment. :(

I went to San Fran. twice this year by the way. Isn't it beautiful? I wasn't around however to see all the lovely pugs on Pug Sunday. I went during June. Glad to hear that you had a wonderful time though with all of your friends! :)

Your new follower- Adi.
