Confessions of a Pug Mum: Pug Parties
Growing up and even to do this day, I haven’t been big on throwing parties. I don’t like to be the centre of attention. I’d rather hang out at home with the pugs. I do have to confess though, pug parties are totally different. I’m not the centre of attention but I get to enjoy organising the party, cause that part I don’t mind.
For someone who doesn’t like throwing parties, pug parties are something different. The focus is entirely on the pugs. And I mean 100% focus is on the pugs. There is nothing better than watching how pugs interact with each other and the activities planned.
I’ve thrown 2 pug parties at home. Both were for Ref’s birthday. Both were very different. The first was a total of 5 pugs, calm and a lot of fun to watch and organise. The second was double that, somewhat chaotic and just as much fun to watch and organise. But oh so different.
I have to admit, having 10 pugs in the backyard was just a tad crazy. Really not the easiest thing especially when it came to the treats. Any idea how hard it is to get 10 pugs drinking doggie beer and capture it all on video and camera? I don’t recommend trying it.
Now what I do recommend is having a small party at home when you want to have some fun activities like afternoon tea with puguccinos, donuts and cookies. When you have well behaved pugs, you get perfect moments of all 5 pugs at a table, on chairs drinking their pugaccinos. Pug party heaven.
I confess though, the reason I love pug parties so much is the organising. Creating a theme, baking treats, putting together party favours and decorating the place. Oh and of course, the outfits. I love working out what the pugs will wear. Getting everything ready for the big day for me is so much fun. The icing on the cake though is the party itself and watching how much your pug is enjoying the time.
I am in the middle of organising the next of my pug parties. This is a special one. A double party celebrating Ref turning 7 and Serina’s first Gotcha Day. I’m excited. Watch this space as it will be the best of my pug parties to date.
