The 7th Annual NNJPE Easter Eggstravaganza!

It's here!!!

Come young Puggies, come old Puggies (and bring your humans too!), as it's time once again for the NNJPE's fabulously famous Easter Eggstravaganza!

We will once again be having our outdoor Easter Egg Hunt...eggs will be hidden in various *inconspicuous* locations among the delightfully grassy knolls of Best Friends! Inside each egg, will be a delectable Puggie treat; the more you find, the more goodies for your Pug...what fun! As if this wasn't enough; the one individual or team (team members must search together!) of whom finds the most eggs will win some eggciting goodies! We will also have one additional gift to be given away as a door prize, so the not-so-swift egg seeker need not fear, as you will have your own opportunity to *bring home the bacon*...I mean eggs (metaphorically speaking, of course...)!

To keep this event safe and sane for everyone, the dogs will need to be on leash for the duration of the egg hunt; once that portion of the meetup has ended, they may participate in a session of *paw loose and fancy free* play inside the Best Friends playroom. Let the fur fly!!

PLEASE NOTE THE ARRIVAL TIME! You may begin to show up for this meetup at 2 PM (the egg hunt will start promptly at 2:30 PM and we will be setting up prior to 2, so please DO NOT BE LATE (or too early!), or you will miss the start of the event!

As always, your human and/or canine food offering is greatly appreciated; to avoid an excess of *delectables*, we are looking for a few good food "volunteers"- we would love it if you'd state your contribution under "comments" when you first RSVP for this event so as everyone can compare and "fill in the voids"; thanks in advance for your help!


Rain date for this event is Sunday, April 14th.


We are looking forward to seeing you, so hop to it and RSVP today!

Pugs 'n' Kisses to everyone!
Ellen and Jennifer!

    Dear Ellen and all of the Wonderful Pug Lovers from Sunday's Meet Up,

    Thank you for the wonderful day that I had yesterday! After being absent a few years from the meet-ups, I just want to thank each and every one of you! I had a fantastic time on Sunday and look forward to the next meet up! Everyone was just great and friendly. I was in Pug heaven with all of the Pugs in attendance. My cup runneth over!

    5 Stars to Ellen for keeping the meet-ups going! You are a real treasure!

    P.S. I didn't bring my two Pugs with me, Peanut (12 years old) and Tequila (AKA Tiki-15 years old) due to medical issues.

    I picked up 3 pounds of potato salad and 3 pounds of macaroni salad, 1 large bottle of coke and 1 large bottle of diet coke. I also picked up ICE flavored waters and some Snapples. I will pick up 5 large sub sandwiches that we can cut into smaller sandwiches and share. I will also have plates, cups, napkins, mayo, ketchup and mustard. I am also bringing plastic forks, knives, spoons and ice.

    Andy and I are looking foward to it. We are trying so hard, to socialize Andy who seems to love people but is shy around dogs. Hope the fun of getting easter egg treats will make him more sociable!
