    Like all ways, this is the ultimate pug party. Had a wonderful time seeing everyone and enjoyed all the costumes. Selma snd Smooch aka "Pug and Pugger" also had a great time.

    See you all at PUGkin in the morning- well a few hours from now! Please stop by and say hi and thank the volunteers you see! you can reach me via @bexsaltsman on twitter (better than text at the park). Google maps WILL take you to the park at the above address. Don't turn around- drive to the END of Riverplace BLVD and turn RIGHT when it ends (on Big View). Then through a small part of a neighborhood and then down a huge hill! You can see us down the hill on the left!

    Sorry for the blast to everyone but I'm trying to get a hold of Becca and I think my emails are going into her spam box. Annnnyway, Becca could you please contact me when you get a chance? (I think that since you're our fearless leader you'll have my email addy?) :-)

    Thanks so much!!!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
