The Annual Del Mar pug Party was an exciting, unique, and fun event for pug lovers and dog lovers in general. The event had many different vendors for pug owners, and other dog needs from pug theme T-shirts, an ask the vet booth, pug adoptions information, and a booth where owners could dress up their pet in a costume and get professional photos. Every half an hour there was a contest being held for the owners who dressed their pug up interpretation of the theme. Prizes were given away to the best female, male, and baby pug dressed interpretation of the theme. Along with the costume contests, there was also a “Pug Stars” talent show, a wet T-shirt contest, and a cupcake-eating contest. The next Pug Party the PRSDC will be hosting is the “Pugtoberfest” in October, for more information on upcoming events visit their website at
