“ A great group for our Pug to have fun with. Many of the dogs that live near us are not very friendly so I think my Pug was just so happy to make some new friends and playmates that not only have good manners and make her feel welcome, but are a lot of fun to play with. Unfortunatelyn the owners were not as outgoing. This was our first meetup, so hopefully next time we will get to meet and speak with some of the Pug owners. It was a lot of fun to see all od the adorable pugs and to see how happy our Pug was! ”
