NNJPE New Year's Meetup and Winter Wonderland Gift Exchange!

Happy Holidays!


It's time for ringing in the new year with our first event of 2014, and our Winter Wonderland gift exchange! (And you thought all of the present-receiving fun was over; didn't you?!?)

We will be hosting our gift exchange which needed to be postponed in December, due to both an uncooperative, snowy Mother Nature, and there being "No Room at the Inn" (a.k.a. so many dogs being boarded at Best Friends for the holidays and no room for Pug Parties...:)! Well; the bustling holiday season is behind us now, so let the Pug festivities begin!

Anyone wishing to participate in this event is asked to bring a new, wrapped doggie-related item (or items) valued at approximately $15.00. The item(s) should be something of which can be utilized either by a dog or a dog/Pug lover, so the possibilities are endless! The gifts will then be tagged with numbered tickets, and will then be distributed via a drawing in which each participating member will "win" the gift with the matching number on his/her ticket stub. If you have two Pugs (or more!), bring two gifts and you can draw for two gifts; it's twice the fun!

As if this isn't enough; awesome goodie bags will also be awaiting each canine attendee, courtesy of our expert goodie bag maker and NNJPE assistant, Cathy. (Thanks Cathy!).

Of course, your participation in the gift exchange is purely optional; you and your Pug can join us simply for the indoor, off-leash playtime; the choice is yours. Finally; any food or beverage contributions are appreciated, as this will be a fee-free event in honor of our first meetup of the year. Let's celebrate the 2014 with a gala Pug Party!

***AS ALWAYS; PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL AND/OR THE GROUP MESSAGE BOARD (a.k.a. "Discussions"), AT LEAST TWO HOURS TO THE START OF THIS OR ANY EVENT, in case there are any updates I might need to inform you about. (Also; make sure your NNJPE emails aren't going into your spam box, as this is my primary means of reaching out to everyone! I always do my best to get the word out about any venue changes to everyone on a timely basis.) If you wish to provide me with an alternate method of contacting you, kindly do so by responding to question #3 when signing up for this event.


Looking forward to seeing everyone and everypug soon; Happy New Year!

    We had a wonderful time. Thank-you to Ellen for arranging the event, and to Kathy for the gift bags. It was nice to meet new friends. My four legged "only child", Gabriella, looks forward to visits with her pug friends. And Jessica had a wonderful time too!

      Sandy had so much fun with Jessica. Please tell her that Sandy says hello and she misses her warm lap.

    Lot's of Puggie fun was had by both canines and their humans! The 16 Pugs outnumbered the 14 humans at this event (could that be because some of us have enough Pugs to have their own personal Pug party?!? Hmmmm...). The gift exchange was fun, the snacks were yummy, the gift bags were wonderful (thanks Kathy!), and the two-legged and four-legged company was awesome! Thanks to all for making this yet another successful NNJPE event.
