Pug Club of New York at The Alice Austen House

This past Sunday was one of my favorite events of the year,   The Pug Dog Club of Greater New York's yearly meetup at the Alice Austen house on Staten Island.  Alice Austen was one of America's first female photographers and a pug lover.

Alice's devotion to the breed is the reason the club holds the yearly event at her home.  I first learned about it last year through Fry's breeder who is a member of the club.  It's amazing to see a crowd of pugs, and their owners, take over the lovely victorian property.



This year we brought Ping, Fry, Weasley and Mr. Tuvok (who was not the only non-pug dog in attendance.) I dressed them in their festive neck scrunchies from Deb of pug possessed and they looked great.  I'm biased but I think they where the cutest does there.


The weather was really nice and we spent most of the morning sitting on lawn chairs or the lawn and watching the dogs.






The lawn at the house is quite large for an urban area and the garden is really pretty. 









The house is right by the water, you can see Manhattan, so it stays pretty cool.



Pugs get hot though so there where lots of baby pools about.







None of our guys will go in them though.   

They did have lots of fun meeting other dogs and people.  I was particularly pleased to see Mr. Tuvok showing alot of confidence and having a great time.  Sometimes he can be a bit shy, or maybe he just seems that way next to super outgoing overly social pugs.










I was particularly happy to see Fry's breeder and she had his relatives with her.  The black pug is Fry's father and one of the fawns is his mom, I forgot which.





A lot of Fry's other relations where there since many of the attendees where dogs from his breeder.

It was a lovely and perfect day and I can;t wait to return next year.
