Pugs are little magical creatures who exude love with wrinkles and curly tails. I’m blessed to be the mom to one who I’ve had now for almost 13 years! Jaeden came into my life when I was 19 and has been with me through thick and thin and all of my craziness in my 20s.
I’ve become one of those “Pug People” who just get how crazy and zany their little personalities are! Being a pug mom has also brought me closer to friends I know on the interwebs who are also pug owners. One of those friends is my pal Shannyn over at Frugal Beautiful! When we visited her and her beau in Chicago this past March we were able to meet her two adorable pugs, Ralph and Max. As sad as it is to say, Ralph passed away shortly thereafter from a form of cancer not too long after we came home. Shannyn has fostered pugs since she grew up with them herself. She was able to take in Matilda, her newest pug, recently so Max has a new buddy to play with.
Shannyn and her fiance have chosen to save 26 pugs with 26.2 miles by having him wear THE BEST Pug run outfit and run the Chicago Marathon and run-raising! In an effort to help them, she created the Virtual Pug Run (Registration HERE) with this phenomenal medal as a reward for finishers who register to benefit the Northern Illinois Pug Rescue – an extension of their pug family!
I was more than happy to do a post that included adorable wrinkles and a pug in a unicorn costume to help these two wonderful people raise money to save the very dog I love so much! Don’t worry, I don’t discriminate – I snuggle all dogs equal to the pug, but Jaeden does require that I play favorites 😉
