Pug Mecca

One week ago today I made my way to Indianapolis to finally meet in pugson some of my Indy pug blogger friends. I wanted to updates you all sooner, but Mom keeps saying she's soooo busy with work. I's a neglected pug. After living with Salinger for a weekend, I know that for sure. But, I's getting ahead of myself. Here's a recap of my wonderful weekend in Indianapolis. (Midi was right, it is a pug mecca!)

The first night of our trip we stopped in Nashville for the night. Mom wanted to break up the trip for me so I wouldn't haves to sleep 8 hours solid on they way up and back. So, we stayed at this dog-friendly hotel. They gave me my own bowls for my room service.

And of course I had a big fluffy bed to sleep in.

The next day we drove the rest of the way to Indy. It was long drive, but I trains for just this kind of thing. I was ready for a marathon nap and I only woke up for food!

When we gots to Indianapolis we went straight to Salinger's house. They welcomed us with open arms!

Looks at the nice treats Salinger's Mom left for us in the guest room!

I guess there's no mistaking who these treatables are for!

I thinks Salinger might have been a little hesitant about our stay at first.

But he warmed up and even let me take his chew chew! (Ok, I might have just taken it, but he didn't stops me!) Oh, that's Lola in the edge of the piccie. She and Pugsley came over to see us!

Our Moms got along great and S-Dog's Mom seemed to really love me! I guess my Mom really loved Salinger too.

Saturday morning we got up and went to a park and then I gots to see hamburgers before they becomes hamburgers (Mom calls them cows). Then we set out for the Indy Pug Meetup!

On our way we stopped at this amazing place called Three Dog Bakery! The nice lady there gave me and S-Dogs some treats!

S-Dog likes to ride in the front seat. I was stuck in the back with Mom.

When we got to the Meetup, there were lots of dogs there in costume. There were some pug jockeys!

Apollo was a monkey! Had I seen him before his Mom picked him up I probably would have tried to finds his squeaker!

Look who else was there! Lilo and her Mom. Lilo was dressed as Minnie Pearl. I thinks she even won!

Then I gots to meet Sophie Sophie's Mom!

Sophie Sophie was there.

So was da Bugg!!!

Sophie, Da Bugg and Harles were dressed up as Three of a Kind. Mom only gots a picture of a pair of them though.

After the meetup, we wents to a party at the Pug Posse's house! Their Mom and Dad were so nice to throw a party while we were theres!

Salinger's Mom made us a cake! (I could not eats it though, cause it was pug poison)

Hank and Molly's Mom was nice enoughs to share her apple pie though!

There were so many pugs there! Me and da Bugg hung out a little.

Mom could only get a partial picture of the Posse. There's so many of them! They loves their Mom.

After the party, we went back to Salinger's house where I gots a special treat. Before I shows you that I ask you. Do you sees all the nice treatment? My own treats with my picture, a pug to play with, and did I tells you about breakfast? Every morning I gots my own eggie for breakfast! I's neglected at my house. ::Sigh::

Anyways. Mom was really grossed out with what happened next. Beware, you mights not want to see. I gots chicken feet!

They were so yummy! Of course, later Salinger barfed up a whole one so now there's no more chicken feet for pugs at his house.

The next day we gots up and went for a death march. I means, a walk. We walked to this place with a huge sand box! Me and S-Dog had lots of fun running around in there!

We fed some fishies and posed for one last picture together.

Then it was time to go home. Me and Mom packed up the car and drove back to Alabama. It was long drive, but I managed to sleep the whole way (except for when Mom ate the curry chicken salad sandwich S-Dog's Mom packed for her).

This is pretty much what I did for the next few days after we gots home.

Ok. Who's next??? We's ready to meet more puggies!!!

Hey Harry! It looks like you had a pawsome time up in Indy. Aren't those Indy bloggers the best?

I think I'm going to run away to Salinger's house because he sure is pampered. Sheesh.

If you're looking for somewhere else to go, you are welcome to come up to Chicago and hang out with me and my peeps. I don't think we will have chicken feet, but we will have Popeyes for sure!

That was the most fun reading about your trip to Indy and seeing all the pictures. It looks to me like Salinger and his mom spoiled you rotten by all the treats and pampering. What nice friends you have made. I know that was so wonderful an experience to go meet everyone. I loved that big sand box!
I wish I could visit with you and everyone!
Thank you so much for sharing this fun time.

We've been reading about pug blogging buddies getting together in Indiana. What a great time. I can imagine how excited they were to meet you Harry and smother you in smooches. stuff for dogs said...

You can come to Texas any time, Harry. We've got pug-friendly rooms. No chicken feet but I do have chicken necks...oh, and I can get us some bison meat. It's soooo tasty, that stuff.Yeah, definitely come to Texas for a road trip. Lots o' pugs round here near Dallas and we're all real friendly.



Rosie said...

WOW - that was a super great trip and the S-Dog Hotel and Spa sure looks like they gave you the five star treatment. I would just trade out the chicken feet for a pawdicure instead.
